About Me

I am proud of my 975+ 5 ratings I always send my swaps so when not received please contact me before rating. I'm happy to re-send

I'm a 37-year-old, living with my husband in a large city in the south of the Netherlands. We have a 3 months old kakariki ( bird species from New Zealand) named Blitz 🐥⚡️.

I lost my teaching job back in Dec 2019 and due to being in the middle of an IVF treatment and Covid-19, I tutor students online. Sometimes I feel really lonely and not understood so I'm glad I'm able to swap and meet some awesome ppl through Swap-Bot.

I am a World War II reenactor for almost 12 1/2 years (haven't had an event for over a year though) Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

Always willing to do a private swap!

... SO MUCH, for the delightful surprise Thank You package of fun surprises!!!!!!!!!

The timing is wonderful, as I’ve been feeling deflated with the tea swaps I’ve participate in, since most have not sent me anything! I do enjoy preparing packages for others and feel joyful doing so; it’s just nice to actually receive happy mail, too! . . . And you’ve done just that for me!!!

I AM So Grateful for you and your fun package! I love everything: the various teas, washi samples & cute mermaid keychain; I look forward to trying the teas, while playing with the washi tapes. ❤️💕❤️😇
