Celebrating Wales & ...... also Philately !

Hi Readers ! For the last few days I have been writing regularly for Blog without fail. The reason is obvious, I am a bit unwell and due to small fracture in my foot, my movement is restricted for one month. So I have devoted my all time to philately and tried to write as much as I can. Hope you are enjoying different posts on a variety of subjects. I am always looking for new information that can be useful for every stamp collector. Many readers appreciated links on Braille Stamps and Climate Change Stamps Presentaion (Mentioned in two of my last Posts). While I am going through this period I feel that a hobby like stamp collecting is not just for self satisfaction and entertainment but it also shares some unpleasant moments of your life. I think it would have been so painful for me if I had to spend one month with a plastered foot on bed with a feeling of despair. I don't know how last 15 days had passed working on my laptop and searching new information on net. I have received mail from readers for exchange of philatelic items. I will soon sort out my collection as soon I recover. It's difficult for me to search items and take out scans right now. Coming back to this Post's contents, a new Mininature sheet will be issued by Royal Mail on 26 February depicting four main regions of the United Kingdom. In Club news some photos from 12th Annual "MAHAMRITUNJAY MAHOTSAWA" Varanasi in which the collection of our very distinguished member Dr. Satyendra Kumar Agarwal was also displayed. New Special cover on Scouting designed by our member Mr. Ajay Agarwal of Akola. This is all for Today... Till Next Post..... Have a Nice Time !.....
