Hi everyone. Have been away from Swapbot for a while as I have been really busy. I now have some time to do some swaps which I am really looking forward to.
I am the coordinator of a childcare centre in a remote area of Australia. I recently became a St John Ambulance volunteer and will start training soon. I have a 24 year old daughter who lives 1200 kilometres away (boo hoo) whom I miss but manage to see several times a year and talk to on the phone constantly . I live with the most divine man on the planet. We have a very beautiful gentle cuddly male yellow Labrador (Skipper), a deceptively cute female Shih Tzu / Lhasa Apso (Fifi) with an attitude problem, who we are pretty sure is plotting to take over the world, and an old cat (Romper) who loves our Labrador to bits.

Love reading but hardly get to do it. Am a member of a bookclub and read about half the books we get but still attend monthly even when I have not read the book as I love the discussion and company of the other women, very social. Love romance novels best, feel good humorous, tongue in cheek books that leave a smile on my face.
We do not have cinema here which I miss. Romantic comedies are my usual choice, action flicks I enjoy and period pieces. My all time favorite movie is the "Shawshank Redemption" which does not fit any of the genre that I usually like.
I am a bit of a couch potato and love heaps of television shows... too many to list but do not watch much as there are so many other things to do all the time. Love Top Gear, as well as any travel, cooking and home makeover shows.
I enjoy papercrafts and love, love, love scrapbooking especially. It is my primary creative outlet...I really enjoy it, it's feeds my soul. Love the paper, rub-ons, chipboard and all of the wonderful stuff that allows me to explore my creative self while l compile snapshots of my families everyday life for those in the future. I get to be an 'Artistic Historian' and this pleases me no end.
I am a hippy at heart. I worry about the environment, the legacy that we are leaving for future generations.
For me life is abundant and so full of possibilities that I get frustrated that I do not have enough hours in the day to partake of all that is available to me.
I am blessed and so very grateful for all that I have.
