About Me


If you're sending me something from outside the EU, please put a customs declaration form on the envelope stating the contents, even if it's just an envelope that's a bit thicker than normal There are no strict customs restrictions for Germany but if it's not clear what's inside they often check contents and this results in very long delays. The German post is working really fast and efficiently but undeclared envelopes can take around six weeks going through customs. Thanks a lot!


Some things you should (or may want to) know about me:

I'm married and mum to a wonderful son. I love communicating with people and swapping things and I'm an avid Postcrosser.

I love to read, especially thrillers and chick-lit novels, but I also like books that make me laugh and travel reports.

In my freetime I enjoy crocheting (mainly blankets, caps and scarves), cross-stitching and baking. I love trying out new recipes, both for baking and cooking. I also just caught the sock knitting bug and can't seem to stop :)

In the summer I go swimming (almost) every day - never in the winter, though, as I actually like cool water and indoor pools always feel too warm to me. I need the open air!

I do love winter, though, and snow, and Christmas! I'm never too happy in the summer when it's hot and humid.

Please note that I'm an atheist and therefore I've no interest in any articles with a religious theme or symbols. However, I am interested in your views and I respect all religions, believes and non-believes.

My sock size is 39 EU/8 US.

Favourite colours are all kinds of blue, light green, dark pink.

Comment: Thank you for the great postcard. It's great your son learnt about Pachelbel. Any interesting facts?
Response: Thanks a lot for your rating and the heart! Well, they were talking about how some elements of Pachelbel's canon were used in pop music. This was news to me and I found it really interesting - my son, on the other hand, is probably the most tone-deaf person on earth :) Music is definitely not his favourite subject....

Comment: Liebe Yvonne - vielen lieben Dank für die schöne Karte! Von Mainz kenne ich eigentlich nur den Bahnhof und die Uni-Bib, da war ich allerdings auch nur selten :) Wir haben hier jetzt auch keinen Schnee mehr, nur noch ein paar Flecken die noch nicht geschmolzen sind - wir haben nämlich ansonsten eigentlich sehr schönes Winterwetter, mit immer ein paar Grad unter dem Gefrierpunkt und total viel Sonne - morgens auf dem Weg zur Kita gibt es immer total viele schöne rosa Wolken rund um den Fernsehturm, da fängt der Tag dann meistens schon mal gut an :) Liebe Grüße! Caddi
Response: Na, dann kennst du wenigstens etwas von Mainz :) Vielen Dank für dein Rating! Bei uns ist das Wetter jetzt auch so wie bei euch: sonnig und schön knackig kalt. Ich vermisse immer noch Schnee, bin aber froh, dass es wenigstens mal wieder so richtig kalt ist :) Ich bin halt der absolute Wintermensch.... Viele liebe Grüße und genieße das schöne Wetter!

Comment: Schön, wieder einmal Teepost von dir zu bekommen :) Dickes Dankeschön für die leckere Teeauswahl! Bei uns hat es am Freitag verhältnismäßig viel geschneit, zumindest für die Gegend hier *grins* Also ähnlich wie bei dir. Liebe Grüße aus dem heute sehr sonnigen Norden!
Response: Vielen Dank für dein Rating - ich freue mich sehr, dass dir der Tee "gefällt" :) Lieben Gruß aus dem sonnigen und knackig kalten Rheinhessen...

Thank you so much for the lovely postcard. It looks exactly how I would picture Germany. I hope I am able to visit your country one day :)

vedalovelo on Feb 1, 2014:

Oh wow you really have seen a lot of Ireland!! Actually 2 summers ago dad and I flew to munich. We rented a car and drove to Berlin, staying in different towns along the way. We drove off the beaten track and had such an adventure :) have a great Saturday! Ireland will be waiting ;)

Hello Yvonne, I just read your profile and saw your 3 rating. "nats to her" that's all I gotta say. This site is for fun and not such things. I know we all have our opinions, I just wished others would realize how much their words hurt people before they spoke/wrote them. Wishing you a blessed day in spite of the world. God bless you-Ellie :-)
