♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ PLEASE dp not ask me to rate you, I may be a bit slow at times but I promise you I will get it done and it really grinds my gears when people harass me for ratings
Firstly and most importantly of all
I am truly sick of flakers and people who do not send on time and even people who somehow "forget" to send tags etc, so from now on... Friend or Foe if you are late sending to me with out any communication BEFORE the send by date, not after, I WILL rate you a 3. If I dont receive anything I WILL rate you a 1. and that's the way I am going to play this game from now on.................... AND I expect the same from others as well.
Also lets not keep using the age old excuses oh my computer died or I had no way of getting in touch, RUBBISH there are many ways to get online these days. Also my Granny died (for the third time) and I had to leave town for her funeral...... NOPE like I said NO EXCUSES
This may sound harsh but I can only take stupid excuses for so long. I have only sent late on 2 swaps in 3 years and I let my partner know that I was going to be late BEFORE the send by date. And yeah, "LIFE" happens to me too !!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Empty Nester and hating it, I love my kids dearly and they have grown up and left home, which is wonderful but I miss them so much. TEGAN is 19 and living in Queensland, (looking at the map of Australia, I am on that little island down the bottom and she is waaaay up in the top state) I am going to visit her next week so am very excited about that. RYAN is now 21 has also moved out with his girlfriend Brighid and we see them quite often which is lovely,
The Head of our household, PUD Sadly we had to have our darling Pud put down on 31st August 2015, he was severely injured and the vet could not guarantee painless living for him.
we still have Tinky who misses his mate a lot
I am 52 years old I am a Mum and a Wife
Generally I am a stay at home mum, although I am rarely there :)
Hubby and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on November 15th, we have been together 14 years.
Swap bot has proven to be a life saver for me, while suffering from depression I find making things an ideal way to "deal" with the crap. I have made many friends here and have met a few "in real life" I know the friendships I have made here will last a very long time. Luv ya's You know who you are xxx
One of my favourite people hubby and I met then later stayed at her home was @Jannikinz I classed Jan as one of my dear friends until she sadly passed away late 2013 RIP dear friend
My Favourite Colours are :Purple bright dark, Bright Red, like Scarlet and Bright Yellow, canary Yellow
I really dont like pink or green much or fluffy fibrey stuff
I should mention that if I receive something from you either as an extra or part of a swap, and I cant use it, I do re gift so if this is a problem to you please let me know. I just think its better to pass things on to people who can use them rather than just let things fill up my drawers etc or even end up thrown away, because I cannot use them. THANK YOU
I enjoy pretty much any music except Rap, and those new songs that you cannot actually understand a word they are singing lol, love the 80s music the best I think
I love any Dean Koontz books but my favourite of all time is "Watchers" it is such a great book, has horror, love and animals. I have 2 copies and have read it at least 10 times and each time I laugh and cry.
I also LOVE Lee Child's Jack Reacher Books, Tegan bought me one for my birthday last year and got me hooked, I am always looking in the library for more. I think I am in LOVE with JACK REACHER. I am going to marry him when I grow up !!!
I just read the most recent book , Worth Dying For, well worth the read, and I still love Jack Reacher !!!
Rachael Treasure is another author I love, she is Tasmanian and writes about women on the land. Love her books
Well I don't watch a lot of television but I like Dr Who, Australian mini series like Anzac Girls, I loved. Winners and losers, which is another Aussie show and my "Can't be missed" nightly viewing is "Home and Away" Aussie Soap.
