About Me

I am a young (ish) (now very ish) married women from Scotland. I have several pets (fish, worms, and a cat).

I love many crafts and am (intermitently) trying to teach myself dressmaking.

I am gradualy becoming more eco friendly and trying to make my impact on the world a good one.

I am dairy free in my eating habits.

I read a lot, and all sorts of books.

I love letter writing.

Please don't be offended if you get letters with spelling mistakes in them from me, I have dyslexia and although I do try to make my spelling as good as I can it will often still have errors in it.

Favorite Music

Fleetwood Mac, The Beautiful South, Marillion, Amy Grant, Eva Cassidy, Sting, Evenescence, Faith Hill, The Wishing Tree, Goo Goo Dolls, Dido, Travis, Lene Marlin, Savage Garden, Meatloaf, The Corrs, Runrig, Wolfstone.

Favorite Books

Thursday Next series, Robin Hobb books, Discworld, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Child of the Mist, Jane Eyre, Little Women series, Sherlock Holmes

Favorite Crafts

Dress Making, Sewing.

I love long letter writing.

I can not knit or crochet well.


Colours: Love Turquoise, like vibrant

Swap etiquette

I am determined to be a great swaper and be very prompt in sending out.If there is ever a problem over a swap you should have received from me please let me know and I will send a second one.

I will rate as soon as I can after receiving swaps, but I do occasionally go away and do not wish to advertise when I am not here. I do apologies if you ever have a slight delay in getting my rating, but I will rate ASAP on my return.

Comment: What a great letter! I loved hearing about the current challenges you're involved in, your visits to friends (and the personal interesting details about each of them, that made me happy), and all about your non-pet worms. And the story about how you got stuck in a sofa bed! Stellar letter. I'll be writing back!
