About Me

I won't be here much and won't be swapping for some time... My mom @Viljami was diagnosed to have kidney cancer and we are all so devastated :( Update: Mom recovered well from the surgery and is doing better at the moment :)

Hi, I'm Johanna from Finland. I live in coutryside with my 2 lovely cats Nuppu and Luna and 5 gerbils Hipsu, Tipsu, Tapsu, Nipsu and Napsu. I am engaged to a wonderful man Pasi. I'm very down to earth person, quiet and calm... I love nature and animals. I'm happy to meet new people all around the world! My parents are also here on Swap-bot @Viljami

FOOD SWAPS

I drink lots of tea. I love esp. black tea with fruits and berries (strawberry, raspberry, pineaple), Earl Grey, Chai but I'm very interested to try new flavors. I prefer black tea. I use milk with tea! What I don't like so much are plain tea without a flavor, herbal teas, I HATE floral teas (camomile, hibiscus, rosehip).

Flake chocolate bar, yes please!

I love Nesquik strawberry milk (powder) but can't get it from here :( Other brands would be great too.

I really like candy! Who wouldn't?! I prefer candies to chocolate but I do eat chocolate if I get some... I don't like plain chocolate. I prefer choco with nuts, marzipan, berries etc. I like sour candy! I love marshmallows, marzipan and cocos!

I love salty snacks! Like potato crisps, pretzels, corn snacks, nuts. But as I don't eat red meat no dried beef snacks or anything for me please. Different nuts are so good, no plain salted peanuts please.

All kinds of cookies/biscuits are always welcome :)

I'd really love to try and see a flowering tea or blooming tea, what ever is the right name for it!

These are our cats favorites! We can't get these from here :(

Not for me please!

I have asthma so nothing that smells strong! No perfume, scented candles etc. I'm not against religion but nothing too pushy or converting please. No violent stuff! I'm teetotaler (absolutist) and no smoker so no alcohol for me thank you! I hate cigarette smell. Nothing meat please!

About swapping!

I will always send the swap to my partner. That is something I can promise! I hope you will do the same :) If you don't get my swap, please contact me and we'll figure it out. If for some reason I'd send my swap late, I will let you know. I think it's better and polite to tell if you have some delays. I can always wait as long as I know I will get my swap :) Here mail doesn't go during the weekends and some holidays so sometimes that may cause some delays. I mark my swap "sent" when I put it in the mail box. So I have sent it even if it doesn't go right away. That way I know I have mailed my swaps. And due to the time difference sending date is wrong if I mark my swap sent in the morning... It's still the day before in US. Happy swapping!!!

If you wait a reply from me (postcard/letter swap etc.) PLEASE, please remind me if you don't hear from me. I don't intentionally leave you without an answer but life and my mind is full of stuff so I sometimes forget :( Sorry about that. And now I don't mean swaps themself but answers to your rated swap letters/postcards. Swaps I always send in the timelimit.

PRIVATE SWAPS are also welcome!

I recycle package materials!!! And as postages are so high I have to use economy mail time to time. But as we have seen priority mail doesn't come that fast either so there might not be a big difference!

Merry Christmas (I’m so sorry for the delay in posting. I didn’t take into account when I signed up that I’d be out of town from the date that partners would be assigned until the due date. I’m so sorry for not noticing that sooner. I still hope that you had a great Christmas )
