Don't know where else to put this so thought I would write it here in the hopes that the correct people find it. It is 1st November 2017-in the last week I have received 2 postcards. The date stamp isn't clear but I think it might be October 2011. Really not sure. They are each a part of a fantasy horse postcard 3 from 1. I don't know who sent them or what swap it was. They aren't signed. I know I haven't joined any swaps in years but I just want to say thank you and I wonder where they have been all this time!!! Both have come from U.S.A. all the way to the U.K. It's a mystery!
I am so tempted to just throw in the towel but my conscience won't let me. Just want to say I'm sorry folks but I'm having a really bad time just now. I truly think everything IS sorted now - as much as I can. I can't change the lateness but all swaps are completed and sent and I got proof of postage today. 9th October - Think everything is sorted now. Sent or resent as appropriate and should arrive soon. Thanks for your patience everyone. time for a hiatus from swap-bot from me I think till I am more able to cope with deadlines and so on.
March 22nd 2013 - about the 3s These have come at a time when I have been very ill and in hospital. Many and grateful thanks to all those who have been so kind and understanding. I think I will take a break from Swap-bot till I feel a bit better. At the moment I just don't have the energy and cannot cope with the stress of deadlines but I will be back later.
I would ask you to please look at my number of fives and my number of hearts. My health does get in the way sometimes but I never ever flake and swap-bot is one of the things that is therapuetic for me. On the same token if you're ever going to be late on a swap with me just let me know and then don't worry about it. I won't rate down.
I'm a 57 year old woman living in Scotland with my dog, Barney who is 14 and is a Collie Cross but he looks just like a giant Jack Russell. On August 5th 2013 I got a new baby! A chinchilla called Wendy. She is adorable and really cuddly. She now has a little sister called Sophie who is also adorable.
I no longer work due to ill health. I have rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, asthma, some mental health problems, underactive thyroid and now diabetes. :
playing my musical instruments -
I got a new baby for Christmas 2010 - a tenor sax!!!
baritone sax - want one, want one, want one - sooo if anyone wins the lottery - - ;>)
The last 2 are very out of practice.
reading - anything and everything, even cornflake packets if there is nothing else around!
Holidays I like -
Christmas, Easter and Halloween, but cutesy Halloween not scary Halloween
knitting - learned as a little girl from my mum
needlepoint - my biggest UFO of all time is a cottage scene,
soft toy making,
porcelain doll making,
tea bag folding,
I'm currently focussing on papercrafts and painting.
I enjoy making art dolls but I am very much a beginner though it is fun!
actually everything related to nature/earth/the universe
cute themed buttons eg. animals, Christmas,
ATC's - I've just discovered them,
Socks - patterned, character-the crazier the better. I have been known to go out with two odd socks on.
anything vintage - pictures, cards etc. or
anything made in a vintage style,
Books, - all kinds! Specially love children's books in any language.
candles, incense, room spray, pot pouri (but not rose scented) lavender, rosemary and lemon grass are my favourites.
smelly bath stuff,
Holiday Ornaments- eg. snowmen, Santas, witches, pumpkins, ornamental eggs, bunnies for my Easter tree, hearts and so on for Valentine's Day
girly stuff - I refuse to grow up!
hair accessories - I have long hair,
Dotee Dolls!-I've just discovered them since joining swap-bot and have decided I now like them.
anything for stamping
postcards - I like them best written on and stamped
tea of all kinds
I am open to receiving things from any, all or no faiths/religions. We are all one people I believe.
Actually I'm easily pleased. If you like it, chances are I will too ;>)
Things I don't like -
anything rose scented,
anything chocolate scented -chocolate is for eating ;>)
coconut and coconut scent
plastic flowers,- silk ones are fine- or pretend silk!
Kawaii,- O.K. Kawaii is growing on me. So feel free to send
Fried eggs they way my aunt made them :>) - all eggs in the pan, then cut into squares depending on the number of people there!
With the diabetes it would probably be better not to send any edibles or drinks with sugar in them eg hot chocolate. If you can find the sugar free versions that would be great.
A word about extras. What I really want to say is please don't ever feel you must send me extras to get a heart. A well made, carefully thought out and nicely presented swap is as likely to get a heart from me. I don't mean to be ungrateful to those who send extras. I do appreciate them but I never want anyone to feel compelled to send me extras.
