Due to ill-health I did have a large number of 1's (12 in all) which I have been working on to clear up.
4th Jan - the first of my 1's has been changed to a 5 with a HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thankyou so much to GeorgeBee. - one down eleven to go!
6th Jan - another 5 with a heart. Thankyou Eadaoin x
7th Jan - just found the bit where you can delete ratings received from someone with a deleted account. So it's 3 down, 9 to go. Getting there!!!!!!!!!!
9th Jan - everyone is being so considerate and generous. I now have another 5. Thanks to Greeleygirl x
25th Jan - another one down - 7 to go. I think some of these will be staying as several people are not answring PM's sadly.
28th Jan - 5 more 5 + Hearts from sweeti8256 and artsnacker - thank you so much
2nd Feb - RogueArtist generously deleted the 1 she gave me and has said that I need not worry about the swap. What a treasure she is. Only 5 more to get rid of!!!
When I moved house in June 2008 I was unwell, but did not realise quite how serious it was. It has taken until now (Nov 2009) to recover and be well enough to get online and sort my cyber-life out.
If you are one of the people who believes they have been 'flaked' by me, I can only apologise and hope you will forgive me.
It looks like the last two 1's will, sadly, be staying. The 2 people involved are no longer active here :(( I will keep trying though, just in case they return! (21st July - 1 person returned and, very kindly removed the 1 she had given me, and so my 3 everlasting 1s are now 2!!!)
I am a river dweller in SE England and live with my partner and my dog and cat.
I am a Pagan, rather eclectic in my beliefs and so am happy to be a Hedgewitch. Living in the country on the river also blends beautifully with my beliefs.
My son now lives with his girlfriend in Royal Tunbridge Wells. He is in the process of going through the selection process for s new job. Fingers crossed for him on that one!
For now, I have given up work and am a 'kept' woman. My partner is a marine engineer and is happy to have me at home. We are looking for a bigger boat as this one is great for weekends and holidays, but not for full time living.
I love going shopping but don't get to go too often (swapping gives me an excuse to go). I look forward to visits from the postman (although he cannot deliver to the boat).
I love anything Pagan, crystals, dragons, dolphins, anything to do with arts and crafts, teddys (especially Pooh), stationery and surprises! And dragonflies! How could I forget my love of dragonflies!!!!!!! Nature, the seasons, anything mystical, the moon, animals and birds.
I could go on, but I won't!
My favourite colours are blue and yellow, although I generally like most colours (especially metallic or shimmer). I'm not too keen on brown and do not like orange or red.
I am a wild woman!
Rock - especially Status Quo. Also Queen, Meatloaf, Phil Collins to name but a few. Have a wide love of music really. For example, I am absolutely crazy about Pan Pipes and love listening to anything which features them
Can't remember last time I went to the movies but I love Gorillas in the Mist, Dirty Dancing, Grease. One of my all time favourites is Field Of Dreams
TV reception here is not good. We try and watch the soaps (because they are easy to catch up on from the days when reception is cack) also Top Gear and any cookery programmes including the 'F' Word
Making Teddy Bears, sketching, painting, glass painting, parchmentwork, card making, ATCs and anything else which catches my eye at the time!
I will always welcome gifts for my animals.
If you send something I can't use please don't be offended if I re-gift. I would rather do that than waste something.
I do NOT gift wrap unless the swap specifically requests it. I also recycle packaging materials. I care very much about the environment and try very hard to re-use and not waste.
My favourite colours are yellow, blue, green and mauves and all metallics. I don't like red or orange and can live with most other colours
I've had to think hard about this - living on a boat doesn't give much storage or display space!!!!
Tea (fruit, herb, green) bags (please nothing which need milk - I am allergic)
Socks - cute or pretty - UK size 8
Good quality paintbrushes, especially special effect ones
Old Bay seasoning
Crystals - tumbled or natural
Embellishments for artwork and atcs
Long scarves (not knitted)
Cotton or canvas shopping bags (like Morsbags)
ATC blanks (especially thick ones)
Recipes for one-pot cooking
Fine drawing pens, coloured or black
Cookies/candy from your country
