I'm Nancy and I live in a small coastal city in Tasmania I have 4 adult children and 12 grandchildren.
I'm loving being part of the swap-bot community. How exciting to be swapping with new friends around the world.
My swaps are marked sent after I have taken them to the Post Office. I would like it if you message me first if my swap for you doesn't arrive within a reasonable time.
My music tastes are pretty varied. I love modern Celtic Music( Dagda, Riverdance and Lord of the Dance), Amy Winehouse, Vince Gill, Andrea Bocelli, The Eagles, K.D.Lang ,Nora Jones,Eva Cassidy,Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart ( particularly his Great American Songbook CD's) and Adele is a new favourite

Update 2013.I've recently read and very much enjoyed Salvation Creek and The House at Salvation Creek by Susan Duncan ( an Australian author )magic books that are about her own life,Friendship Bread by Darien Gee and Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.
This last is an amazing story of a community afflicted by the plague and of the struggle for survival...quite uplifting.

Extras, chosen thoughtfully, are lovely treats, and enjoyed, but please know that when I give you a heart with your 5 rating, it is because your swap was outstanding in the way you created it and I felt "the love " you put into your craft.
Thrilled that Outlander has come to TV and I can get it here in Australia.Sam...you bring Jamie to life.What a heart breaker.
