Profile last updated - October '17

Hi, I'm Leanne from Farnborough, in the south of the UK. I'm 30, live with my boyfriend, our son who is 8, and a cat, Tipsy. I work full time as a Veterinary Laboratory Technician at the moment, but I've worked in clinical pathology for 11 years total. I also study Social Sciences part time, but I do have time for a few hobbies :)
I like photography, macro and animals/plants mainly, but I like all sorts bar portrait. We like 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. Two of my favourite places to visit near here is Birdworld, and the New Forest Wildlife Park.

Some of my geekier hobbies include playing Xbox, my GT is Pirate Jimbob, my all-time favourite games are Fallout 4 and Skyrim, I've clocked over 200 hours on each. I collect anything based on the FO series. Please PM me if you have anything to trade :)
I love all things criminology/forensic.
Comic conventions - although I don't read comics, I still like going for the film/TV aspect, me and my sister @Bexican137590 always like to dress for the occasion. I have attended:
Star Wars Celebration London '16
Destination Star Trek '16
MCM Birmingham '16
London Film & Comic Con '16
German Comic Con Frankfurt '17
London Film & Comic Con '17
I will be attending:
MCM London '17
Walker Stalker London '18

I currently write to multiple pen pals, sometimes participate in postcrossing (this site has taken priority, I have to say), and I like to collect washi tape, stickers and postcards. Crafts wise, I make cards, scrapbooks, Pocket Letters and ATCs.
Whenever it say's profile based etc, I am literally happy to receive anything as long as it's not on my dislike list, I do have a special request list if that's something you might have in your stash!

If you're on Facebook, I literally just started swapping in a few of the fb/lb/deco, postcard & sticker groups, do add me there if you wanna swap :) I am also happy for you to include any fbs in your envelopes here.

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! Do not rate me a 1 as soon as that option has become available, please talk to me, I don't bite! I am always happy to resend if something has got lost, but I also need to know if you haven't received anything so I can claim from the PO, as I obtain proof of postage for everything I send. Anything other than a postard which needs resending will be sent with tracking

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 before the deadline, I know we all have lives!
