About Me

Hi, I'm a postcrosser from Ireland, who loves all things startionery related. I enjoy making my own envelopes and baking. I don’t use social media, my preference is snail mail, in addition to postcrossing, I participate in reddit gift exchanges. As I am working from home now, I get to check my postbox in the morning, instead of having to wait until I’ve got home from the office 😊

I know from postcrossing sometimes mail fails to be delivered, so please get in touch if you are expecting something from me that does not turn up, and I will resend

I rate the day I receive, so if I have not rated a swap you sent to me, it simply means I have not received swap yet. If a long time has past, I will send you a message to let you know 😀

I lived in London for 9 years, but returned to Ireland a few years ago, where the pace of life is more relaxed.

I love to travel, I love France, even the simple pleasure of time spent in a French supermarket, as they have the best chocolate aisle :) I enjoy researching and planning holidays. I'm a big fan of US National Parks, due to their variety and inspiring landscape. I have visited USA, U.K, Bahamas, Australia, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Andorra, Slovakia, Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Finland & Sweden. In the future I would love to visit Japan.

I enjoy walks on the beach, going out for dinner. Life is busy, so I find that don’t have much time for reading.

I have a sweet tooth, I love chocolate, although not white chocolate so much. I love to try chocolate that I cannot get in my country. I like chocolate with flavours too (orange, mint, coconut, coffee, nuts etc) . I’m such a chocolate fan, that if I make porridge/oatmeal I add cocoa powder, flaked almonds and fresh raspberries, so it’s more a dessert than breakfast 😃. Happiness is cake, coffee and a chat with a friend😄.

Favorite colors - Purple, lilac, blue, teal, pink

Comment: OMG - wow, thank you SO much. I love the birthday card and you sent me many of my favorite international chocolate! I feel in love with chocolate from overseas several years ago, it's so much better than American chocolate! So very kind of you. I really appreciate it and can't thank you enough. I really needed this today.

Rosie2766 rated for CS: Anything Goes Key Chain Swap on Jan 31, 2021
Comment: Thank you so much for the keychain, postcards, and such kind words!!! Losing a parent is very difficult. I lost my mom back in 2010, so now I’ve lost both of them, and it’s very difficult!! It helped knowing that they were together again, because my dad missed my mom terribly!!! I’m doing better now, but still miss them both!!! I really appreciate the key chain!!! Hopefully someday my daughter and I will be able to visit Ireland!!!
Response: I’m very glad you liked the keychain, thank you for the ❤️ and kind words , take care
