About Me

I will be away travelling until the end of August. Any swaps will be recorded in my absence so that I know when they were received. If they are a Type 1 swap, I will rate while I am travelling, any Type 3 swaps will be rated on my return.

I rate all swaps as soon as I receive them, if I have not rated you, it has not been received.

We are a proud foster family, currently made up of Mum, Dad, Teen, Preschooler, Toddler, Baby, Baby, and Grandma.

All of my children are special needs (heart conditions, ASD, FASD, anxiety, PTSD etc).

We also have dogs, and chickens, and we keep bees.

I have been swapping and penpalling for over fifteen years through various groups, I find it a great stress reliever.

Thank you!

Thank you for taking our likes/dislikes into consideration. With all of the kids who come and go, we can generally find someone who will fit or like most things :-)

We LOVE reused/recycled items. As long as it is in good pre-loved condition, we live by the motto of 'waste not, want not'.
