About Me

I'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 15 & 18. We have a golden retriever called Cooper.

I work in an infant school (age 4-7) in a specialised unit for children with learning difficulties. (and I do not need school stickers :).)

I love the seasons and what the calendar year brings, in January - Burns Night, though in Feb, I'm not big on Valentines.

March/April - the arrival of spring, flowers, blossom and Easter. April is also my birthday month.

Summer - means more time at the beach, picnics, bbq, days out :)

Sept, Oct and November - Autumn, love this season and then Halloween, being a Scot, the true meaning of Halloween.

I love Christmas and all the that it brings, Advent, mince pies, Christmas pudding, cake, cards (vintage, winter wonderland, a card that reflects where you are from, owls, reindeer, traditional) Panto, mulled wine, Family and Friends.

Favorite Books

Here be Dragons and everything else by Sharon Penman.

Crime and thriller novels

Harry Potter

Anything by Jane Austin

L M Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables

Harry Bosch

Lord of the Rings

Narnia books

Northern Lights Trilogy

colours

My favourite colours:

Turquoise, mint green, teal, pastel pink/green/blue/gray, neutral colours, rose, autumn colours,

Christmas colours: Red, teal, copper & gold

I think because I'm such a seasonal person I find my colours change as the season's change.

No thank you...

TEA, TEA and TEA as I really don't drink it, coffee is my thing.

though I love to cook, I have no interest in recipe cards.

please no plastic washi.

I do love a piece of chocolate and would rather a small quality piece over quantity. In regards to sweets (candy) if it's a little extra to pop into the mail that's fine but I will always hope for a piece of chocolate over sweets.

No thank you to gum.

cute stickers of any kind, I really do prefer nature stickers but plants should not have faces on them :D

I have no interest in foot products at all.
