I'm Caroline, and I live in England. I am a single mum of four children. Three are all grown up so I only have one at home now.

I like playing Animal Crossing and the Professor Layton series. I also like playing Just Dance on the Wii.
I love all genres of music from pop to classical. My favourite artists are Taylor Swift, Kylie, Katy Perry, Paloma Faith, Celine Dion, Little Mix and Damien Rice.

I like films and TV series. My favourite at the moment is Blacklist. I also like Friends, Doctor Who, Midsomer Murders, Elementary, Judge Judy, Murder She Wrote, Columbo, Agatha Raisin. My favourite films include The Usual Suspects, Seven, The Avenger Films, Harry Potter.

I love swapping, I love finding out who my partner is and tailoring what I send for that swap to their personal tastes. I hope every partner I have loves the swap they get from me.
I try to reuse as much packaging as I can x
I will rate a swap as soon as it is physically in my hands, so if I haven't rated you for a swap, I haven't received it yet.
I do not rate down if I do not like a particular item, (as long as someone has paid attention to my profile & met swap requirements) I will just use it in another swap.
I will always rate and I hope that I get the same courtesy in return.
I am still waiting for several ratings, please rate!!!
