Portuguese Colonies have been popular recently, so I worked on an album with three colonies inside. These were Portuguese India, Cape Verde and St Thomas + Prince. I found quite a few new items among this selection and pleasingly, the condition of the stamps was good, something not always true of Portuguese Colonies. Apart from thinnish early and late periods, the coverage was good.

I received the Irish Christmas issues today, consisting of 6 stamps. Quite jolly.
