Hi I live in Dublin , Ireland.
Be assured I would never ever Flake :). I try to get my swaps posted early because they can take longer than two weeks to arrive in the USA! Please contact me if the post is slow arriving.
I always rate as soon as I receive a swap :) I always leave a comment. Please , please rate me when you receive my swap...If you don't I worry you didn't get it :(
I am married for over thirty years, I have four children, my eldest daughter is a swap-bot member ( @vedalovelo ) she introduced me to swap-bot :)
We have a wonderful family dog called Apollo, he is a black and white Border Collie ... a sheep dog:) We rescued him from the local dog shelter.
