About Me

Friday 13th May 2016 I've been unable to come online due to being ill, I will be contacting all swaps and processing them all. Sorry for the let down, and inconvenience, I know it's horrible, unfortunately life happens and when one simply can't come online they simply can't. You can either accept my apology and we move on or you don't, and that's ok :)

Don't forget to check out my flickr photos if you want to see swaps I have sent, I try to take photos of most physical swaps.

Profile partially updated January 2016

I've just come back after a really long hiatus due to stuff in life that I don't want to explain because everyone has shit happen. I do not know if I can fix the 1's but will try to, before all of this happened I was a fantastic swapper as you can see from my 312 No.5 ratings.

As per the 1 or 3 ratings on my profile please email me I will be happy to answer anything that is not answered there.

I am a 30+ year old married stay at home mum (but looking for paid work :) ) to 3 kids. 2 are at school (boy 11, boy 8 in Feb) and 1 is finished school (girl 19)

I absolutely LOVE swapping, I love sending and receiving swaps from and to other countries.

I love movies, I watch all kind, mostly at home now but also love to go to the cinema.

I collect coca-cola things, Calvin and Hobbes stuff, M&M's stuff a few postcards from around the world that I think are gorgeous. Plus I like to have (I guess collect) books on Castles, Paranormal, Italy and Canada.

My hobbies when I have time (3 kids at different ages keep me so busy!) are the internet, taking photos, reading, watching movies/tv series, cooking, doing crafts with my kids (and by myself, I hope to one day have enough time to do scrap books on all the different times in my life), gardening, writing letters, doing swaps (of course lol), shopping, decluttering (yes it has become a hobby cause it's never finished). I also volunteer at the school my kids go to.

I will always look at your profile to see if I can send something/s that you might like or can use/eat etc. I always try to send great swaps cause thats what I want in return. I will never send crap/sh*t lol, I may find it hard if you don't have a very well filled out profile, but then I just try and send some good quality things that I would like to receive.

Hi Mandii! This is for the Leave a Comment and Pic on your Partner's Profile Swap in 3's & 1's. :)

I am also a stay at home mom of 3. Two boys and one girl. Mine are younger, though. 2,3 and 8. :) I see you want to have the time to scrapbook, I am big into scrapbooking and smashbooking! Time is definitely a factor.. haha. The Awesome life of a Mother. <3 If you would ever be interested in private swaps for scrapbook supplies, let me know! My craft stash is HUGE!

So here is the pic I chose for you.. I hope you like it!! :D (These two hotties!!)

Take Care. ((HUGS))

Thank you for sending me a package for the green swap! I wish you could get rated for it. It would include a heart for all those extra AMAZING huge buttons you sent. I'm sorry the partner you were send to and I was to receive from got partially suspended. Thanks for being an "angel" on this one.

Thank you very much for the Doctor Who-themed address labels towards my November wishes at the Wishlist group! :D (David Tennant is my favorite Doctor too, so how perfect are these?!) I love them and kinda don't want to use them...because then they'll be gone, haha. ;) (I will, though! Spreading the Doctor Who love through the mail stream.)
