Favourite magazine

Crochet magazines

Cooking magazines

People' s magazines

Please, no knitting, gardening, card making, cross stitching, embroidery, beading or quilting magazines. I AM SIMPLY INTO CROCHET at the moment. Thank you!

Not good with paper craft and glue ( am quite messy and don' t like the feel of glue on my fingers!!) Also rubbish with polymer clay!!

About Me

French woman living in England, married with 3 children and one little dog! I work as an LSA (Learning Support Assistant) in a secondary school.

If you don' t receive a swap from me, send me a message first before rating!! Communication is everything!!

After reading quite a few other profiles, I realised I had not told you much about myself, just facts!

I find it hard to describe myself but I' ll try! I enjoy being quiet, reading a book (cookery, crafty, or simply a good story), reading profiles on Swap- bot!, writing letters or my diary, sewing, knitting...depending on my moods... I like doing things on my terms and I HATE rushing, which I do most mornings to take the children to school!

When I am in the mood, I go the opposite way and turn the music up, dance in the living room and am bubbly, daft, chatty, gossipy even!! I enjoy cooking with cream and chocolate. I don' t believe in diet foods, I always read the labels and am not a fan of E numbers or low fat food! I hate diet drinks! I think it is important to eat properly, without excess and have a real treat every now and then! I enjoy my food.

I garden with my 11 year old son and three friends. We rent 3 allotments and grow constantly during the months of February to November! We use the lasagna gardening method! Check it online, it' s magical and very easy! ( no digging!!!). We have been very successful. We garden weekly! I love growing vegetables, my favourite being French beans, leeks, tomatoes and potatoes. We grow lots of berries and make jam, jellies and crumbles)

Favorite Television

I enjoy Home & Away, Neighbours, MKR ( My kitchen Rules), I' M a Celebrity, Get me out of Here!!, The Great British Bake Off, Who do you think you are?, Long Lost Family...and comedies, and love stories!!

Hate watching sport on TV, especially football and tennis ( feels like the same game over and over again!)

Favorite Music

I love most musics, not too keen on Opera or Heavy metal but like anything in between. My favourite band/ singer are Yothu Yindi, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, Abba, and French music.

Favorite Books

Really enjoyed reading A town like Alice and Head over Heels by Sam bailey.Also love the Bridges of Maddison County. Lately, I have been reading boring books, I need some inspiration please, I don't like anything gory or violent. Just a good story, well written and moving.


Bad quality chocolates ( like cheap milk chocolate),


Cats scare me, they always stick their claws in my thighs!! Ouch!!








Family recipes,

anything handmade,

crochet/food magazines,

seeds for my garden,

fabric ( especially Liberty!!!)


anything useful,

anything warm, unusual, funny,


anything that takes me to a different place through taste/ smell,

good books

seasonal decorations/ ornaments

good quality chocolate, anything nutty or fruity, hot drinks ( tea/ coffee/ chocolate...)... Really love meringue and nougats and nuts!

I also enjoy food that contains alcohol!!

I enjoy Pilates

Crochet books (with charts!)

Cookery books

But most of all, I love my friends and family

POSTCARDS : I prefer a naked postcard with one landscape view ( day or night time) or a recipe on the front. Please, write the date on it and your 3 favourite places to go to ( on holiday/ vacations)! I " stole" this one from somebody on this site so thank you, it' s a good idea!! Please, don' t send me dull coloured postcards, like beige or white and very light yellow... They make me sad!...Take me with you on your travels! Show me the sea and the land and the food you are discovering!Thank you!



Earrings!!! All types, but no clip ons! I have pierced ears!!! Love food earrings!

Any colour, any material except plastic.

Favourite colours are red/ brown/ orange / ye!low and turquoise! Love opals!!

Also really like seed bead earrings and micro macrame earrings!

Favourite movies

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! , Elf, The Bridges of Madison County, The Joy Luck Club, The Untouchables, Twilight, The Theory of Everything...


Say one word and you may appear stupid, say nothing and you may appear clever!

Go where you want, die where you must!

People should cry when you leave, not when you arrive!!

Food is the most abused anxiety drug and excercice is the most underutilized antidepressant.

Comment: Merry Christmas Charlotte, I finally mailed out today my 47 pen pal Christmas cards. I don't know what to do with myself. I am on time this year on mailing them out on time! Thank you for the nice Postcard Christmas blessings,
Comment: Hey Charlotte, I received your card today, I love the Robins, thank you. The Snowman is cool too with all the lights, I like that idea, I'm inspired. The choccie was yum, I have saved a piece for my husband to try when he gets home, Lindor is one of my Fav's! :oP (I'm wearing the bracelet as I type, he he) Em. x :o)
Response: I got my inspiration from YouTube festive painting tutorials! Glad I passed on the inspiration and that you like the bracelet. You can also use it as a bookmark xxx
Comment: Thank you so, so much for such a lovely envelope. You went above and beyond. <3 Orange Lindor is one of my favourite flavours of chocolate. The gingerbread man will find his way onto my tree that I have for ornaments from swaps, which hopefully will be going up over the weekend. I really appreciate the bead instructions and I'm excited to give it a go. All the beads are fantastic and I love that metallic coloured beads (what I always call spilt petrol!) And finally thank for the snap sequin bracelet. Actually I really like the sequin colour change because it helps when I'm anxious, so now I can have it with me when I'm out and about. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019!
Response: So pleased you like everything. I hope 2019 brings you peace and happiness. You can usd the bracelet as a bookmark too. I can spend hours strocking mine but my dog gets jealous!! :) Have a fantastic Christmas! Hope to do more UK swaps next year!

Comment: Thank you for the nice card christmas tree. Love christmas with the dogs, merry christmas , greetings Chaar
Comment: Merci beaucoup pour ta carte. Je vais essayer ta recette d'alcool à la greande (j'ai chez moi du cognac que personne ne boit, je pourrai l'utiliser). Je suis déjà allée à Versailles il y a longtemps mais j'ai l'intention d'y retourner merci pour le tuyau. Et il ne faut pas y aller le mardi, jour où les musées parisiens sont fermés et les touristes "se rabattent" sur Versailles. Je te souhaite un très joyeux Noël.
Response: Ca, je savais pas, quelle bonne equipe nous formons!! On pourrait devenir guides à Versailles avec tout ce savoir!! :) Joyeux Noel å toi aussi xxx

I really like Stromae too, i listened him a lot when he first came out on TV around 2010. And now he's still producing good songs.

I am so glad you loved the chili! It is a favorite at my house!

I had so much fun getting you items for the advent calendar. It makes me extremely happy to know you are enjoying each day. Maybe we can do a private swap next year for an advent calendar? May your Christmas be extra special since you are extra special yourself.

I just received a terrific package from Charlotte. It was delayed because of her daughter's illness but it was absolutely worth waiting for!
