Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain.

If you are going to be late on a swap please feel free to contact me. I completly understand that life gets in the way, and not always the big things, Sometimes just life in general. Communication is the key :-)

Bythe

Hi! My names Anjee and I come from the quiet town of Farnborough in England, Not far from London. I have a Myspace - It should be set to private but feel free to add me - just drop me a message saying your from here :-).

I tend to ramble on on things like this - bare with me! I love swapping and miss the days of penpals and getting things through the post that wasn't a bill! I love music, socialising and travelling, some of my favourite things to do are: Seeing the world (Japan is a personal favourite...), learning new things, driving along in my little car singing at the top of my lungs (!), Seeing my friends and Dancing like a madwoman :-)

Favourite colours - Black & White, red, black, yellow, pink, emerald green, I love Grey with neons - I like clashing colours and mis-matches * leopard

Favourite animal - Pug :-D *

pug

I Love stars (even my little car is Monochromatic with white exterior and Big Black star outlines!), hearts, skullys and anything a bit kitch!

I have a definate love of leopard print and my peep toe leopard stilettos are the best thing since sliced bread. Except for the pain they cause :-(

I love Japan More than anything, i love everything about it and dream of living there.

My sense of humour is a little bit wrong and I am not the most PC person in the world.

kitsch

I love Red coats and pretty shoes, I love dancing in the rain and feeling the wind in my hair. I like quiffs, boys with tattoos and anything nautical themed, I LOVE PIRATES AND SAILORS :-) Anchors are AWESOME and I love girly skull and X Bones :0D

I love Black hair and white hair...but nothing in-between, I always have red polish on my toe nails. I love alice bands and hair bows, pearls and plastic. 50's pin-ups and trailor-trash, random gifts from the heart and not the wallet, back-stories and future dreams. I dream of boys like Gerard Butler and Johnny Depp and wish I had Marilyn Monroe hair.

I wish I was Little Red Ridinghood

monroe

I Love Rum Truffles, Champagne Truffles, anything remotely truffle-y! Thorntons is my biggest weakness.

My favourite flavour is grape - something there isn't enough / any (!)of in this country!

I love perfumes - Thierry Mugler's Angel being my favourite and Paul Smiths London being my "feeling pretty" smell :-)

My Life is pretty much about too much eyeliner, too much peroxide and not enough experiences!

I have strong views against Religion. I don't believe, I don't trust and I don't like. But I don't preach and therefore expect the same in return. This isn't to offend, each to thier own :-) Fairytales are for bedtime, not to rule your life. Letting these stories dictate so many things have caused wars and far too much hurt. Brainwashing at its finest.

Favorite Music

aaea

I Love to hear new music, especially other peoples favourite songs and what they mean to them. I over analyse lyrics and one twist in a voice can make my knees go week. My favourite bands are Counting Crows (I dream of finding the love, life and dreams they sing about) * Placebo (Brian Molko is beautiful) * Muse * The Goo Goo Dolls * The rapture (i love to dance to The Rapture!) * Peaches * Hell is For Heroes * Ken Yokoyama * The sounds * Decemberists * Melissa Auf Der Maur * FFAF * Har Mar Superstar * Jimmy eat world * The Faint * Justice * LCD Sound System * Modest Mouse * Billy Talent * Polysics * Weakerthans * Electrocute * Fangs * Does it Offend you Yeah? * Elvis * Hot Hot Heat * Yeah Yeah yeahs * Darren Hayes...and my guilty secret...Cher. Shhhh. I'd love you forever if you send me mix CD's - especially if they are either songs with amazing lyrics or some kind of dirty electro that i can get down to!!

lrr

Favorite Books

I love to read trashy novels, especially by Marian Keyes and Jane Green. On the other side of the spectrum I like to read autobiographies of people who I generally havent formed an opinion about. I also love art books by Brian Froud. The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins.

lrr

Favorite Movies

Favorite Crafts

Swap-Bot

Swap-Bot is a lovely place to be. I have met some awesome people here and would definately consider them friends. When going through a family tragedy I turned to Swap-bot to find anonymous faces to vent to. What I found were friends to vent to.

There is alot going on in the forums. But if your not interested and not involved my best advice to you is to stay out. You can use these to decipher who you'd maybe prefer not to swap with, but please bare in mind that others will be doing this when reading your replies.

In life, everyone's opinion is valid. Just be sure to stop and listen to other people's opinions before running off with your own.

We are women, hear us roar!

My Mum

UPDATE

July 2009

Mums cancer was beaten by the chemo, however, New Pre-cancerous cells were found. She is currently undergoing a 9 week treatment of BCG and Chemo with electrolocis to try to beat this bout. Whereas there was a better chance of it working last time, there is only a 20% chance of it working this time, so fingers crossed.

Many thanks for all your thoughts and wishes, You really do help and for that I am eternally humbled.

OLD

We found out in November that my Mum's bladder cancer has returned. She went in on Feb 6th (after the op being put off twice - once due to the Doctor being ill and once due her her having contracted awater infection) and had the tumour cut away, and chemo blasted straight in. She gets her results on 20th Feb - the day I go to Japan for a weekish, which I am really sad about :-( These results will determine what course of chemo to put her on, then in three months she has to go in for chemo for her Liver.

She is always really perky and i think the pain has hit her more than expected. She came back to work far too soon and has been sent home with a doctors note, as she has now developed a worse water infection.

I know she wil be tearing her hair out sitting at home bored. If anyone was thinking of sending anything to me I would like to request that maybe a card or note goes to my mum, I think she would really appreciate this. She loves anything her favourite colour is purple and her least favourite colour is green, but she generally loves anything colourful, Poodles, fish, coffee flavoured candy, Jelly Beans, Anything for her little poodle - Honey, Bookmarks or anything tropical/holiday-ish, magnets etc :-) her name is Aileen and she is 54 (But dont tell her I told you that!! :-p)

Thanks so much for reading this :-)

UPDATE

In late feb we found out that the cancer is a different one to the one she had previously, and is an aggressive form. She starts Chemo on 12/03/09, and will have it once a week for 6 weeks to start with, then we will take it from there.

Many many thanks for all the cards and gifts, I know she has loved recieving them and all the thoughts and wishes have really made us feel as if we are in someones thoughts, which means more to me now than I can ever express, a deepest heartfelt thank-you. xxx

Comment: Oh my goodness! The drawers are sooo pretty and cute! the handles you used were the best. And the goodies stuffed inside are awesome. Definately would never have known that this was only your second matchbook(s). Thank you so much, it totally made my day to open the package. Last night, I was helping my 7 year old sister make some drawers for her dollhouse that we're working on together and I used yours to show her the finished project (since I was working on mine, too). She was amazed by yours and is totally trying to sucker me into giving it to her. haha! Thanks again! Sorry this is so long! xoxo
Response: Thanks for the awesome rating! :-) And I am glad you like, I had alot of fun making it - Cant wait for another matchbox swap, even though I am cutting down on my swaps I think these are going to be my weakness!! Kudos to your sister for trying ;-) hahaha! thanks for the heart <33 xax
