About Me

I'm a 35 year old male.. I have 2 teenagers; ages 19 and 16 and an amazing girlfriend.

I've always been interested in penpalling and exchanging mail in general. I used to exchange FB's as a child. Way before the internet, that was a good way of finding penpals!

*********ALWAYS LOOKING TO DO PRIVATE CHRISTMAS SWAPS **********

  • Flag lapel pins (I have a huge map and I've started collecting these. So far, I only have UK, Norway, France, Chile, Malaysia, Palestine, Israel, Italy and Canada, USA, Barbados, Singapore )

  • Postcards (Tourist/ retro ad/ handmade art cards)

  • Tourist Magnets

  • Anything with a rainbow on

  • Scrap paper (to make envelopes)

  • Punchies

  • Twine

  • Cute writing paper

  • Room diffusers

  • Washi/ deco tape

  • Pyjamas size L or XL men's (( if a a generous size)

  • tea towels esp touristy

  • Nice pens

  • Handmade envelopes

  • Labret, tragus and nose jewellery

  • Tote bags for shopping

In 2016, I'm sending shoe boxes to those in need around the world via International Aid. If you'd like to send something for the boxes in our swap (instead of for me,) I'd happy to receive it.

Example: children and adult's hats, scarves, gloves, socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, toiletries, small toys, pens, pencils, colouring books, notebooks, tissues, small torches or anything else you think might go in a shoe box.

Thank-you

Dislikes

I've seen some lists of dislikes that have been far longer than the likes. I try not to be a fussy person, and welcome practically everything that lands on my doorstep. There are a few exceptions for which I will briefly explain:

  • Religious items (I'm not religious)

  • Homophobia (I am the 'T' in the rainbow)

  • Peanuts (I have anaphylaxis to them. My Epipen hasn't been used for a while ;)

  • Meat - including gelatine and carmine. (I am vegetarian)

I received a lot of items in 2014 that unfortunately weren't vegetarian.

PRIVATE SWAPS

I love private swaps; large or small. Please PM me if you're interested.

My Thoughts on USA Only Swaps.

... Seriously people, there's a whole wide world out there. Why not embrace it!

$0.33 to send a postcard? I'm on the next plane!!

Just an observation...

Wow! There are some REALLY picky people out there.

About Me

I am a huge fan of all things Queen, especially Freddie Mercury.
