About Me

I'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 10 & 13. We have a ginger cat called Fergus, and a Bernese Mountain Dog called Jasper. I love to cook and I'm a keen photographer.

I try to swim twice a week, run once a week, and Saturday mornings are now Zumba and Pilates.

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 Music

I love a good mix of music, an indie/rock girl mainly but add someone like Adele and Sam Smith to the list also.

Favorite Books

Here be Dragons and everything else by Sharon Penman.

Crime and thriller novels

Harry Potter

Anything by Jane Austin

Things that smell overly sweet

Mail/Notecards/Postcards

I will always send when I have committed to a swap-bot, if you have not received anything from me, please let me know and I will resend. If I have not rated you it is because I have not received it. Thank you for your consideration. :)

Handmade - If the swap is to send me unwritten notecards/postcards, I would prefer shop bought - Thank you.

I like my postcards to be written and stamped, no envelope unless the swap states so. Please look at my l like list to get an idea of postcards, i would like to receive. If we exchange blank postcards in an envelope, please no touristy postcards as I tend to use these to send onto others:)

colours

i love colour combinations: grey/pink, pastels, yellow/black, orange/blue, pink/turquoise, black/white, purple/silver or grey. My favourite colour's are turquoise, green and blue.

Comment: Thank you for the summer themed envelope with goodies! I especially love the doilies and the flower stamp you used 💗 Quick note; the stamp did not stick to the blue envelope. Luckely it did stick to a piece of paper you stuck on there, so it was not a problem. But I thought you should know!
Response: Thank you for the rating, sorry to hear the stamp had come loose in transit, will maybe glue those vintage stamps down in future.

Comment: THANKS for the lovely handmade envelope plus all the extras (it's much appreciated & sorry for the delay in my rating). What did you think of "All My Sons" which we also saw on the 17th May? I loved it, I usually just go to musicals but this was my first proper play on the West End. Being front row and so close to S. Field & B. Pullman was surreal. They were BRILLIANT. Thanks again for the mail.
Response: We thoroughly enjoyed All my Sons and for us too, it had been a long time since we had seen a proper play.Great cast and great set. Thanks for the rating and heart.
