About Me


update 22/6/17 - If you receive any mail with postage due, please please do contact me, I am more than happy to reimburse, as I made a mistake with the postage yesterday, and I really want you to receive your parcel! Thank you!

Hi, I'm Leanne from the UK, and I’m just starting out here. I'm 30, live with my long term partner, son-8, and a cat, Tipsy. I work full time as a Veterinary Laboratory Technician M-F, but I do have a few hobbies :) -
Photography, I personally do macro and animals/plants mainly, but I like all sorts bar portrait.
Visiting national heritage sites & museums - we have a family annual pass for the National Trust so we visit quite a lot and make use of it nearly every weekend.

Some of my geekier hobbies include playing Xbox, my GT is Pirate Jimbob, some of my favourite games are Fallout and Skyrim.
Love all things Criminology/Forensic.
Comic conventions - although I don't read comics, I still like going for the film/TV aspect.

I currently write to multiple penpals and do postcrossing, so I'd like to give this a go. I don't have a lot of spare time to make things, and I don't have much to swap at the moment other than washi tape, stickers and postcards, but I'm working on it. I also need to build a collection of inks and stamps, as I have none currently, so my envelopes may be a bit boring with just stickers and washi tape for the mo!
EDIT 17/6/17: Well I'm getting there, brought a s*** ton of craft stuff this week, so am looking forward to putting it into play :)
As I'm also starting to participate in item swaps as opposed to postcards, whenever it say's profile based etc, I am literally happy to receive anything as long as it's not on my dislike list!

Anyway please bear in mind that I live in the UK, so may take a while in the post. I'm no flaker, I will only join those I have made a commitment to, so please do contact me if something still hasn't arrived in a reasonable time - this can be weeks! I do try to send as close to the assigning date to get a head start, but if in doubt, I don't bite :)

I generally rate the day I receive unless I'm away. I don't do drama/sob stories/BS, if you're going to be late just be straight up and let me know, I know we all have lives!

Shout out to my sister who told me about this website @Bexican137590 shes just joined too.

Anyone who can tell me what a cheesybob is without looking it up gets a free London touristy PC. PM me your answer.
