asking for trouble

PO Box & Mail Swap

I recently fulfilled a life long dream and now have a PO Box! UK/EU laws require me to publish my address all over the place and it was starting to feel a little uncomfortable. It also opens up opportunities for fun! By which I mean SURPRISE MAIL SWAP.

PO Box - askingfortrouble

I love sending and receiving surprise mail, but it’s not really that much of a surprise when you have to ask for the address. I’ve always wanted to revive the Summer Postcard Club so this is a good replacement and runs all year round. You don’t need to restrict yourself to postcards either.


So, a promise! If you send something to my PO Box, I promise I will send you something in return, even internationally. It may take a while but it will happen.

You can find more information and the address on the surprise mail swap page (or via the contact page) so I look forward to hearing from you and will be stalking the postman even more than usual.
