I have been absent for years now, so thought I'd pop back and say hi. I'm not sure if anyone I know is still around on here. I used to run Newbie Niceties.
I'm Caroline, I am 44 and I live in England.
My birthday is July 23rd so am born on the cusp of Cancer & Leo starsigns. I consider myself to be more Cancerian though.
I like playing Animal Crossing and the Professor Layton series.
I love music and make good use of Spotify. I love all genres of music from pop to classical. My favourite artists are Kelly Clarkson, Kylie, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Eliza Doolittle, Scissor Sisters, Coldplay, Britney, Pixie Lott, Katherine Jenkins, Michael Buble, Kate Nash and lots more x
I'm a big reader, and have my own book blog. www.thedivinewrite.co.uk. My favourite author is Agatha Christie and I collect her books. I also like Jo Nesbo, M C Beaton and the classics. I am also on Goodreads and love recommendations for new reads and new authors.
I like films and TV series. My favourite at the moment is Blacklist. I also like Friends, Doctor Who,Midsomer Murders. My favourite films include Star Wars, The Usual Suspects, The Harry Potter series etc etc.

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!!!
