About Me

I HAVE TO APOLOGIZE TO EVERYONE WHO DID NOT RECEIVE SWAPS. AFTER A VERY LONG TIME HOPING AND PRAYING, MY SON SADLY DIED EARLIER THIS YEAR. I HAVE OBVIOUSLY NOT BEEN ON HERE FOR A LONG TIME. BUT I AM BACK NOW AND HOPE TO GET BACK INTO THE SWING OF SWAPPING

I am a mummy to one little boy, who went to play with the angels earlier this year. He was and still is my life.

I am a freelance writer, and trying hard to get a novel published.

I live in cold, rainy Wales in the UK, and I spend my days writing, crafting, cooking and doing yoga.

Favorite Books

I am studying for a degree at the open university. I am currently studying philosophy.

I love reading books of all kinds, but especially a good psychological thriller, the kind of stuff I also write.

Some of my favourite books are: Jane Eyre, The Time Traveller's Wife, The Behaviour of Moths, Flowers in the Attic, The Lovely Bones.

Favorite Crafts

I love doing tie dye, and my favourite colour is purple. I am currently learning to draw, and I love writing, poetry, cooking, baking, unusual recipes, trying new things and curries.

I like my postcards with a nice note on them, naked if possible.

I enjoy doing ATC's, have a strange love of steampunk and enjoy zentangling.

I am currently learning to draw.

I love angels and butterfly items.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, House, Dexter, Bones, documentaries,

Family

I have an angel son called Gideon. I also have a cricket mad fiance who keeps stealing my crafts before I can send them, so I have to make one for him too. a pet dog called Dot. I also have an ancient rabbit called Conan who is an escapologist.

Favorite Music

Music wise I have an interesting taste in music, I love classical music, favourites include Elgar, Vivaldi, Holst and Pachelbel, I love many operas including Carmen, Tosca and La Boheme and I love ballets.

On a completley different note I love Meatloaf, Alanis Morissette, Evanescence, LeAnn Rimes, Eva Cassady, Oasis and Dido.

Favorite Movies

Butterfly Effect, Ghost, Saw,

Favourite Colour

My favourite colour is purple.

Green always reminds me of my son, so I love green, and I also love yellows, as they remind me of sunshine and hope.

Tea

We like both tea and coffee. But not green tea, herbal tea or exclusively fruit tea. Fruit flavoured black tea is wonderful, just not plain fruit tea. The only non black-tea that we love is Rooibos. (redbush) and that is one of my favourites and always appreciated. If possible can you send flavoured black teas (vanilla, caramel etc or fruit), blended teas, or teas such as English Breakfast, Early Grey, Lady Grey (love tea with bergamot), darjeeling, etc.

And we love flavoured coffee, especially if it is flavoured decaf.

Allergies

I do suffer from a lot of allergies.

Milk - I am allergic to milk (not lactose) BUT feel free to send me milk chocolate and such because my husband LOVES it and will be happy to eat. If you can find milk free chocolate I will be VERY happy :)

Cats: I am HIGHLY allergic to cats, even cat hair. If you do have a cat, please could you go through every effort to ensure not cat hair comes with the swap.

Smoke: I used to be a smoker (many years ago) the smell of smoke makes me feel very, very sick and I wont touch it.

Thank you.
