About Me

About me well..... Im a solo parent to 3 energetic boys. Oskar ( Ozzy) 12, Logan 9 and Otis 6. Most days I feel like whacking them on the head with a big stick...but I refrain LOL.

I have been working in a Primary School, for the last 3 years and whilst some days are harder than others I do enjoy my work.

♥ I will re-gift anything that I am given if I have no particular use or a dislike for it. I will not pass anyone elses work off as my own and always stick a note when im re-gifting stating who made the item.

If you have a particular aversion to me re-gifting anything that you send please let me know and I will refrain from regifting it.

Flakers and Questionable Swappers

I do not tolerate liars, I will rate HONESTLY if you are late with no contact before send date or no reasonabale excuse...or your reason changes as the 'story' develops. I am not a hard swapper to deal with.

If you get caught outrightly lying about swaps I will not be happy and it will be reflected in your rating.
