Profile edited on 4th October 2015.

It appears I haven't participated in any SB swaps for over 2 years, but I have joined my first swap for ages!

Edit 11th February 2016 - one of the links is broken so has been removed. Do have a go at FreeRice - donations to the UN's World Food Programme.

About Me

I live in Wales, part of the United Kingdom. I am in my 40s, married mother of one son. I am a penpaller and Postcrosser (I prefer letters though). I am not a postcard collector but do like to receive nice postcards (stuck for themes? try landscape, UNESCO, mapcards, cartoons... nice postcards) with the message (about the picture, weather, ....) on the back being just as important as the picture. I collected stamps when I was a child and my son has shown some interest in them.
I am able to pass on FBs, but only one or two at a time.
I am not a religious person.
I am a forum administrator, writer, letterwriter, photographer....
Is it odd that I don't want to write too much in my profile, so that there'll be something new to say & find out about me in letters?

Books, films and television

Science Fiction & Horror, including works by Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, Dean R. Koontz, Shaun Hutson....The same genres also apply to movies. I also like non-fiction books.
I don't have a television! But, I can (and do) watch DVDs.
I have never watched a full episode of Big Brother or Britain's Got Talent or The X-Factor or Pop Idol.

I like

  • Postcrossing
  • Freerice - Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme. Freerice has two goals: 1) Provide education to everyone for free. 2) Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
  • Give Vaccines
  • Stickers
  • Cartoons
  • taking photographs (except self-portraits - I fear the lens would break!!)
  • I like other things too, but you don't go into a public place and shout out a list of your likes, interests and hobbies... in the hope someone will talk to you.

I am not very good at

  • Drawing
  • Knitting
  • Crochet
  • Art

Things I do not do

  • crafting
  • scrap-booking
  • card-making
  • textile crafts although I can sew

Something should go here:

But what should it be?

Things I don't like:

  • cigarette smoke
  • the smell of beer (lagers, ales, stouts...)
  • baked beans & ravioli (perhaps it is the accompanying tomato sauce)
  • marmite

Post sent on its way

Nothing for the moment.

Awaiting post for:

Nothing for a while.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I haven't been on SB in a long time and recently joined a few writing swaps. I hope you're enjoying 2017 so far! :)

Deeno1105 on Feb 8, 2012:

Thanks for stopping in to say "hi". Watch your mailbox. I've sent something to you today!

Filpot on Feb 7, 2012:

Boo! back to you!!

Just a thought, you might want to have a look at the Long Letter Pals group. Keep meaning to mention it in a letter and forgetting. A really lovely group. No swaps up at the moment because most of us are finishing our "31 Letters" swap, due out next week.

I think if you asked to join, you'd be straight in!

Happy Halloween!

aussielisa on Jan 30, 2011:

Hey, am holding off on posting out your letter cause of the weather around here. Wed and Thur will be fun for me.

KarlaKC on Sep 14, 2010:

No problem about the puzzle stamps. They were so unique to me that I did a search on the internet about them, and I noticed they were older issues. :-) I do enjoy having the one you sent on the postcard. Have a great week!
