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 !!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
The Head of our household, PUD
Updated 5th September 2011
I am 48 years old I am a Mum, a Wife, a Daughter, a Sister, an Auntie and a Friend. I am me, complex yet simple to understand. Stay away from my craft stuff and we can get along fine, you take your life into your own hands if you touch my stuff.
Generally I am a stay at home mum, who rarely stays home because I am always driving the darn teenagers somewhere. While I am VERY proud of my kids for getting out there and having jobs from age 14 Oh my Lord I get sick of driving them, especially when one of them often starts work at 5.30 am which means I am dragging myself out of bed at 4.50 am NOT a happy time for me!!! I expect in time they will have their licenses and I will look back and say, where did that time go? Meanwhile I rise at 4.50am LOL
Hubby and I are fast approaching our 3rd wedding anniversary on November 15th, we have been together 9 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
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 what my teenage son listens too. Although i think that that's mandatory isn't it? lol Although lately he has taken a liking to country rock,l which is great because I like that too.
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 !!!
Well I don't watch a lot of television but I do get a laugh out of "Family Guy" and I like an Aussie show called "Spicks and Specks" I also like to watch an Australian series called "Packed to the Rafters" and another called "Winners and Losers"
