About Me

Holiday time has beckoned and as of today 17th August I have rated all swaps that have arrived through my letterbox. I may pop on now and again but will not be available until 1st Sept offically. Look forward to starting swaps again in September.

I'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 11 & 14. 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 I don't like...

Tea, I don't drink it, so please do not send.

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: haha, you used Pride and Prejudice to make your fun librarypocket. I immediately started to read :):) Thank you for a super swap! I love that you used a vacation-theme for your envelope. Even your stamps (the lovely man in his swimm-suit) matched! I am wishing you lot of summerfun with your swimmingpool!
