About Me

what I pledged

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.

Favorite Music

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

Favorite Books

Love,love, love to read. My favs are The Outlander Series ( Cross Stitch in Australia ) by Diana Gabaldon....so good I've read them 4 times so far.Also love The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter,anything by Barbara Erskine, Barbara Wood or Jodi Picoult, Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen and The Secret life of Bees.

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.

About extras

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.

Favorite Television

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.
