Bonjour,

/!\ Important update ! /!\ Due to current uncontrollable circumstances I have to take a break from SB, I will send everything I have to send but there will be dead lines passed, I’m so so so sorry for the inconvenience ! Trust me, if I could I would send everything in time and wouldn’t take a break … You know, life really sucks sometimes ! I will also rate everything asap when received, please bear with me, and again I’m so sorry for the inconvenience ! I hope I’ll be back soon ! Take care ❤️

______________


My name is Laure, I am a caregiver, working in a nursing home specialized for people with Alzheimer and other senile dementias. And I love my job ! If you work in a social/ medical field, I’d like to know what made you choose this path and what you like/hate about it !

I live in Marseille, south of France, with my rescued dog, Lucky, a 9 years old English setter (his estimated birthday is 12 march 2015) . I’m originally from Switzerland and I absolutely love cows (of course I love all animals as well).

I love sending / receiving postcards and letters since forever ! I am on Postcrossing of course, and the limitations there are so frustrating ! I want to send more and receive more mail !

My dad recently passed away (cancer, I’m 100% ok talking about it if it’s something you’d like to discuss) and was a huge postcard collector, so now I have way too many postcards waiting to be sent all over the world and I absolutely can’t restrain myself from buying every postcards I see so the collection is growing ! I need to send everything !

When I don’t work, I spend my time walking my dog and exploring the world with him, he loves to hunt butterflies (don’t worry he never catches any) and he’s the best at cuddles and being dumb cute. I adopted him in September 2021 so he was already almost 7 years old and i have no idea what was his life before his rescue. But it must haven’t been lots of fun.

If you have or used to have a pet, please tell me everything about it ! I love stories of connection between humans and animals so much.

My mother in law is a big stamps collector so I give her every stamps I get on enveloppes for her birthday & for Christmas and she is always so happy (she lost her collection a few year ago in an inundation). She’s the cutest.

I collect washi samples so I’m always happy to see them as extras ! I try to fill a big journal with every washi tapes ever (yes this is impossible but it doesn’t matter !)

Likes

  • Animals, especially cows and dogs, but I love them all really (not a big fan of birds tho, except howls and little birds such as robin) (PS: I do not count farm birds as birds, so yes I love chickens, peacocks, turkey, pigeons and all these !)

  • Botanical, I love plants as well, not only flowers but everything from trees to vegetables, favorite flowers are edelweiss and pansy

  • Calligraphy, I like looking at your beautiful writings, but I’m bad at it lol

  • Death, ok that sounds weird, but I’m interested in it’s representation through the years and cultures

  • English Setters, of course my favorite dog breed !

  • Fall is my favorite season, so anything related

  • Green and Blue (and everything in between) are my favorite colors, I also like purple and silver

  • History, true historical events or totally fictional tales, I love both !

  • Insects, especially butterflies, but I kinda like them all (in pictures and drawings ! I’m scared to death of real life centipedes)

  • Just postcards, my first snail mail love

  • Kamchatka (random but I needed a k and this place is so beautifully stunning)

  • Letter paper, latest stationery addiction, but I love a beautiful letter paper and it’s not that easy to find (especially with assorted envelopes)

  • Medical stuff, anatomy, human and animal, especially comparative anatomy

  • Nature, especially mountain and sea

  • Old things, whatever how old, from prehistoric to yesterday

  • Polaroids and analog photography

  • Questions ! Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything, I’m really open minded and will be glad to answer !

  • Russian things, I’ve been studying Russian for a while now and start understanding and being able to read easy sentences, I love all former Soviet countries as well and hope to go visit some days (I know it may sound weird due to current events, but I’ve had this interest ever since I was a child, no idea why)

  • Stickers, I’m addicted to stickers omg, this is a serious addiction problem, I also like washi tapes

  • Taxidermy and other bizarre things you could find in a Cabinet of curiosity

  • Tea, I love tea ! My favorites ’green and blue tea, but I drink black and white tea as well and love herbal infusions ! Nothing too artificial tho, and I have a irrational disgust for rooibos

  • Utopies, I wish the world was a safe space for everyone

  • Veggies, I’m mostly an herbivore, I only hunt mushrooms and always bring zucchinis and eggplants when I’m invited to a BBQ

______________


Please,

let me know if you have any problem with my swaps, I will be glad to resent to you and will never rate anything other than 5 without discussing it first with the person. Please do the same.

Post service in France is SO SLOW even a snail would be more fast ! And we have so many strikes and protest all the time here (especially February / March / April / May 2023, …), let’s just be patient !

Thank you so much for reading all this ! See you soon in my mailbox ! Have a beautiful day !

Bonne journée !

Comment: I know your mail has a tendency to take more than a month to reach me and even one time your French postal service had to put a plastic bag over an incident that happened to your envelope (but in the end I still safely received your mail), which is why I waited extra long, but then today I am surprised to find you're actually suspended from Swap-bot with Ones and a bunch of overdue swaps, and that you actually last signed in on April 22nd :'( You marked this "Let's Brag! #3" swap as "Sent" on April 9th, and now looking at your profile, I'm starting to wonder if you actually never sent me anything this time around :'( And all this time I thought it was your usual very slow mail... I think I may have to first rate you a 1 but I will change it to a 5 if I ever receive your swap. Also messaged you as well. Hope things work out for you. ~Kiyasu

I am a purist when it comes to waffle toppings - just syrup. If I was to add any toppings, my top two choices are strawberries and cooked apples. My dad makes the BEST waffles and, as an adult, I still ask for him to make them.
