About Me

!5th July - Away on holiday tomorrow will rate anything that arrives during that time when I get back.

Hi I'm Leanne, I have just turned 33. I am a quiet person who keeps myself to myself. I have a beautiful daughter who has special needs. I have a few friends but they mean the absolute world to me. I heard about this site from an acquaintance and decided that it would be a good way to make some new friends.

I am a newbie to this site so if anyone has any suggestions on how I can improve my profile please let me know, thank you. I have come to realise that not everyone rates but I want to ensure any future swap partners that I send on time and if it is one that requires posting I always get proof of postage at the post office. I have noticed recently that our post is getting lifted earlier from the local post office than stated (and mostly on a Saturday but during the week too), I always send on time however if date stamped is later this will be the reason why.

I have many hobbies mostly crafting in nature. My number 1 hobby is cross stitch. I find it incredibly relaxing but I have so many things started, I really need to start finishing some off! At the moment I have 5 that I am working on a rotation basis, I don't like to be stitching the same thing each time I sit down.

I enjoy drawing, zentangle, blackwork, some card making and scrapbooking although I haven’t done any in a while. I also love cooking and baking and love trying new recipes. I am in the process of losing weight and love adapting recipes to make them healthier.

I love writing and making lists. I love photography and walking.

I have a bucket list that I am attempting to complete, and some things on it are there to take me out of my comfort zone as I think that is quite a good thing to push yourself to achieve something that you know you can do but might find a wee bit scary to start with.

I love owls and the colour purple, I love the smell of freshly cut grass and the feeling of sand between my toes and I love nature.

I love reading – mostly crime things. My favourite authors are James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen and M.J. Arlidge. I have read other authors as well but don’t get quite as hooked as I do with these authors.

On TV I again like to watch crime shows like Rizzoli and Isles, CSI, NCIS, MacGyver, true crime shows, police shows, but also like easy watching like friends and other comedies – sometimes you just want to watch without thinking too much!

I love love love music – it is an extension of me. My tastes range from up to date pop to classic to a little bit of everything. My favourite music is 80’s though. You will often find me and my daughter dancing around the living room having a brilliant time.

I love autumn it is one of my favourite seasons, I love the changing colours and the cold crisp mornings. However I absolutely love the snow and I am crazy mad on Christmas! Tree is always up on the 1st of December and sometimes a wee bit before, we do Christmas crafts and baking most days in December and the house always smells of Christmas too !

My challenges this year are to learn how to crochet properly and also to learn to use the sewing machine properly.

I can appreciate the work that goes into knitting but it is the one thing that I just cannot master – I think I have given up on that!

There is not much that I don’t like however I am petrified of snakes, spiders, and clowns and I really don’t like anything like horrors or scary stuff.

I am open to private swaps as well.

I would quite like to start making ATC's and pocket letters. I am wary of joining swaps just incase mine are not good enough. However would be open to private swaps in these so I know whether I am good enough or not.

Comment: Enjoyed reading your answers. Your concern about your daughter and her moving to the next level of her education is something that concerns me as well with both my daughters (both have special needs). We found one college that has a very good program for students with special needs. However, our next step is seeing the cost of getting in the school once we receive the financial aid package. I learned a new word thanks to your answers: courgettes. We call them zucchini here in Minnesota. Just used one to make a spice bread this morning. Cross-stitching and relaxing sounded like a great way to spend part of your day!
