About Me

I'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 12 & 15. We now have a golden retriever called Cooper. (and no I'm not into dog things)

I work in an infant school (age 4-7) in a specialised unit for children with learning difficulties. (and I do not need school stickers :).)

Yay, I can go swimming again and these past two weeks I have been going three times a week. I try to run once a week, my knees are feeling it:D. I do love a bit of photography but seem to lack interest at this moment in time. I do like to cook but can easily have days where I'm not interested :D

I love the seasons and what the calendar year brings, in January - Burns Night, though in Feb, I'm not big on Valentines.

March/April - the arrival of spring, flowers, blossom and Easter. April is also my birthday month.

Summer - means more time at the beach, picnics, bbq, days out :)

Sept, Oct and November - Autumn, love this season and then Halloween, being a Scot, the true meaning of Halloween.

I love Christmas and all the that it brings, Advent, mince pies, Christmas pudding, cake, cards (vintage, winter wonderland, a card that reflects where you are from, owls, reindeer, traditional) Panto, mulled wine, Family and Friends.

Favorite Books

Here be Dragons and everything else by Sharon Penman.

Harry Potter

Anything by Jane Austin

I think because I'm such a seasonal person I find my colours change as the season's change.

No thank you...

TEA as I really don't drink it, coffee is my thing.

though I love to cook, I have no interest in recipe cards.

please no plastic washi.

I do love a piece of chocolate and would rather a small quality piece over quantity. In regards to sweets (candy) if it's a little extra to pop into the mail that's fine but I will always hope for a piece of chocolate over sweets.

No thank you to gum.

cute stickers of any kind, I really do prefer nature stickers but plants should not have faces on them :D

I have no interest in foot products at all.

Dear Julie-Ann, I was so delighted to receive your mail. It came the afternoon after a stressful job interview and the end of school for two weeks. Thank you so much for sending just what I needed. All the things will so come in handy.

All the best, Beth

Welcome to sunshine swaps!

Singske on Aug 21, 2020:

Happy me, received another happymail envelope from you😍 So kind of you. Love all the goodies (those little girl stickers are great!). Enjoyed reading your letter. Yes it has been really hot and sticky. I did a little raindance a few days ago, that was fun... Keep an eye on your mailbox and enjoy your weekend💌

Singske on Jun 5, 2020:

Hello Julie-Ann, received your happymail today and I must say it was so nicely put together with all the little pockets. It brought some sunshine on this cold and rainy day. Thanks for that! Time to enjoy your chocolate now... yummie😋 Enjoy your weekend♥️

Wow, what a heartwarming surprise in my letterbox. Thank you so much for this lovely envelope! I am pretty sure the home made chocolate cake was delicious! Here we slowly start to go back normal. Yesterday was the day of the day: I had my first hot waffle with cherries - in a cafe. Can you believe this?! Well I have to admit it all feels a bit strange, it was simply too good to be true. And now have a wonderful Sunday.

martieCZ on May 7, 2020:

Julie-Ann, you really made my day! What a surprise! Thank you so much for the beautiful lemur card and the joke, it is so funny. We are well here, hope you are too. I hope life will be back to "normal" soon :). Wish you great days!!

Widellia on May 4, 2020:

Catida on Apr 30, 2020:

Thank you for the fun pelican card! Very kind of you. At first I thought it was meant for someone else, for a swap, but now I understand you sent it out of benevolence :) We're all well, and things are not bad here in general either. Schools have been closed for over a month, but will open up again in two weeks, and we'll see what happens after that.
