About Me

22.2.19 - UK post is set to go up again next month, so that means Apart from anything in the UK, a couple of postcard swaps and email, or pinterest. My international swapping on here is going to be very limited. I can no longer afford the postage.

I'm from the UK, and a Lancashire lassie to boot! A heathen pagan, and biker, I live with my partner of 35 years, No kids or pets, but love cats especially big fluffy ones and tigers. Retired and loving it. Published Poet.

Family History Research (extensive searcher for over 20 years), Card Making and other crafts, Pen Paller for a long time - have 15 current pals, Local History, English Civil War, Medieval History, Viking History and Beliefs, Butterflies, Dragons, Faeries, The Sea, Frosty Days, Rainbows, Scotland, The Lake District, Isle of Man, Manx GP, BSB. Steampunk, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Gothic. Celtic Art, Pre Raphellite Art - John William Waterhouse, Rosetti, Cats, Tattoos,Heathen Paganism, Witches. Castles, Museums, Ruins. Tudor Mint 'Myth and Magic' figure, unusual Victorian Glass, and 'Arts and Crafts movement' collector and a lover of anything unusual and out of the ordinary, cooky, erratic and very wierd sense of humour.

Would love anything featuring the above, but am not fussy. There is a Wish List below.

I had heard about Swap-bot from others on pages on face book, and as I love giving and receiving mail that has surprises in. I thought that I would give it a go. Also to learn about different places and cultures - what other people like and don't like, and just to make others happy.


BEING CALLED KATHY, OR MY FULL NAME - KATHRYN, please don't do it. Smoking, rude people, bad manners, racism, anything plain white, yellow or brown, amphibians, green beans, mushrooms, cooking, getting up early, boring postcards.

RATING BEFORE HAVING THE CHANCE TO RESEND. Nothing worse than being rated low and never to have been given the chance to sort it out first, so please be patient.

NONE RATERS If you are my partner, I will remind you via Swap-bot messaging, and later by a comment on your profile. Persistant None Raters will be banned from my swaps.


My own swaps are sent out on the day partners are allocated, or as soon as possible after. I am, however, not responsible to what happens to them after they go into the post box, even though I will feel it if they get lost. I will check if the item has arrived, and offer to resend if it hasn't.

Also, I am in the UK, so please give any mail that I have to send overseas enough time to arrive- 4-6 weeks, or it can be longer. I will check after 4 weeks though and resend. Also Email can get lost in the ether, if nothing has arrived in a couple of days, please let me know and I will send again.

Please let me know if you have not received anything before you rate, but give the postal system reasonable time to send first, especially during Bank Holidays, Easter and Xmas, or if you are on the other side of the world from me.

Plus I can't be reponsible for items that the post loses, but I WILL RESEND.


If you are going to be late with your swap, please let me and your partner/s know as soon as you can. I won't have to chase you then, and it is only courtesy.

I do send out a reminder to all participants in my swaps, if they have not sent by a day or two prior to the deadline, just in case they have forgotten.

If you have flaked, or have late swaps on your dash, you will be banned from any other of my swaps.

Also, if you have not been active on the site for a while, I will send you a message to ask why before the sign up date expires.

I won't rate a 1, unless absolutely necessary.
