Feb 21st - As if Feb couldn't get any worse for me, my boyfriend and I broke up today after almost 4 years!
May 4th - My mothers Aunt passed away today following a long struggle with cancer.
Apologies for any packages that don't get sent out entirely on time. I will endeavor to meet any deadlines as best I can. I will definitely be sending all packages that I am required to. If I am behind on your package I will PM you to let you know. Thank-you for your consideration & patience.
If you are sending a parcel to me by registered post, or with tracking, could you please let me know when you send it and approximately how long it should take to get to me. I only ask as for some reason my post office doesn't like to inform me when there are parcels for me to collect. I only ever get the 'final notice' in my mailbox, which is usually 1-2 weeks after they actually receive it in the first place! If I know a parcel is coming I can call them around the time it is due and see if it has arrived. Thank-you!
I am 23 and currently living at home with my mum and brother as I can't afford to live away from home due to studying. I have lived in share houses for a few years though.
I have a gorgeous cat called Ruby and a sweet old dog called Lulu who is absolutely terrified by almost anything (clapping, wind, noise in general) and would lick you to death if given the chance. My brother has a cat called Angel, who is anything but an Angel. In fact, we have to keep the cats separate from each other, otherwise poor little Ruby gets ripped to pieces!
I'm still stuck at University when all of my friends have finished and started full-time work and everyone in my course is either straight out of high school or older with children. I tend to hang around the older ones as I can't relate to the younger ones. I have another 2 years of my course left, so hopefully I don't go insane from having no money before then.
I consider myself a rather crafty person and also love to cook & collect recipes.
I am studying health sciences at university and majoring in nutrition as I would like to be a dietitian and help people make better decisions for their health, especially those with disorders and diseases which can be helped or controlled through diet.
I made a huge change to my study a couple of years ago(I was studying hospitality and events management), when I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. In the future I hope to help other people who are going through the major lifestyle changes that being diagnosed with such a full on disease can bring. This disease is with me for life, at present there is no cure (and no I will not grow out of it) and so I have decided to turn it around and do the best I can with what I have been dealt.
I don't let diabetes define who I am or how I live my life. I've made changes to accomodate it into my lifestyle, but I try not to let it rule my life. I was a foodie before I got diagnosed and I still am now, just in moderation. My approach seems to be working as I have consistently good 3-monthly blood tests which indicate good control.
Please make sure you write my address out properly when sending to me, lately I have had a lot of people mis-spelling my suburb - it ends in ley not ly Thank-you

Australia is notorious for its tight quarantine laws, please refer to the 'What can't be sent to Australia' website (link above) before sending to ensure that I will receive your entire package.
Most importantly, do not send:
On a personal note, I dislike:
I am not easily offended, but please don't send me anything racist, elitist or sexist as I believe that all people are equal and deserve to be treated with respect.
Craft Supplies I use:
I am an AUSTRALIAN size 10-12 (medium) in clothing (and underwear - for Panty Raid swaps!).
I have my ears and belly button pierced.
Treats: Please don't avoid sending me lollies and edible treats on the basis of me being diabetic, I enjoy them in moderation, in fact as I am on insulin they save my life if my blood sugar levels go too low - so you could be saving my life!
Swaps - This list isn't up to date at the moment!
Sent, waiting on rating:
Waiting to Receive:
Sent: Only listed when received - to maintain the suprise!
