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 :).)

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.

Here be Dragons and everything else by Sharon Penman.

Anything by Jane Austin

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.

I received your colors TAG and you overdid yourself :o I love everything inside. Tge stickers, the papers, the washi everything is just amazingly picked. By the way I'm not kidding you - just a few days ago I was scrolling in postcrossing and I saw that yellow postcard with the woman and I was like Oh I would love to receive such postcard. THE SAME EXACT POSTCARD!! WOW. You are amazing, big thanks!!

The "Themed Envie Tag -- Rated Swappers" has arrived - so, so many nice things to discover and open (I was happy to find your letter but I figured it was for this tag, when I came across the "witches and wizards ephemera). I also love the envelope; what a nice package to find in my mailbox today - THANK YOU!

Hi Julie-Ann, Thanks for hosting nice swaps in the EML group! I was so lucky to receive your beautiful swaps too! Happy swapping!

As we speak, I am burning a lovely smelling candle and eating a Monty Bojangles. I am blown away by the kindness of your package. Everything is so perfect. The botanical theme and all the lovely wrapped surprises, just perfect. The postcards by Hannah Longmuir are just astonishing and I got 3!! The way you made the pouches is very inspiring, never seen it like this before. I am hooked already. Cannot thank you enough for your kindness and your generosity. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
