About Me

My children

I have two children.

My eldest is my daughter P. She is 14. She loves make up, singing, playing the piano and wants to become a vet.

My youngest is my son R. He is 6. He adores dinosaurs and Lego in equal quantities and when asked what he wants to do as an adult his only reply is "make toast"!

I love

I am completely Gluten Free and very low sugar so it's probably best not to send food items unless you are sure. I do have a soft spot for strong dark chocolate however!

I am a washi tape addict! Never met one I didn't like :)

The colours Grey, Yellow, Navy and Green feature in my house with lots of natural tones too.

Making cupcakes and cookies although mostly just for the kids or Gluten Free for me occasionally.

Bento lunch stuff - I pack all my own foods due to my diet and bento stuff really cheers me up when my friends are tucking into yummy things I can't have.

Coffee & Tea

Nail varnish


Stationery like notecards and papers, Pens, memo pads and funky clips etc.

I collect Breast cancer charity pins

I love trees, leaves and natural things

I love giraffes

Bunting, Garlands, Hanging decorations are a huge thing for me.

Succulent plants are my new favourite things.

Comment: I'll add the heart b/c only until now am I seeing that I have not rated you (>_<") I sent out a letter a few weeks ago....am not sure if you received it. Honestly thought I had rated but with all that's been going on, it slipped, big time. :/
Comment: I don't want to rate a 1 but I have never received anything and I see it is marked not sent. I am sorry. I will rerate if and when I receive something. Hope you are OK?
Response: June 2015: Hi. I have sent you a PM as I'd like to sort this rating out. I am very sorry that you didn't get your ATC and I'd love to make this up to you ASAP :) (this partner hasn't logged in since 2013 so I'm not very hopeful of clearing this one up)

Hiya Lou! I'm Gabriella your Profile Comment Swap. I'm not very much into crafts... I guess I dont have the patience, but I'm trying my hand at baking. I recently went to IKEA and got myself a cupcake tray and another one for baking cookies. I live alone, but I do have a girl cat called Nina. She came by plane all the way from Mexico... can you believe it? Happy holidays to you and yours and happy swapping in 2013!!!!!

Worknesh on Dec 12, 2012:

I own a male cat named Murkius. He says hello to you :)
