About Me

Hi, I'm a postcrosser from Ireland, who loves all things startionery related. I enjoy making my own envelopes and baking. I don’t use social media, my preference is snail mail, in addition to postcrossing, I participate in reddit gift exchanges. As I am working from home now, I get to check my postbox in the morning, instead of having to wait until I’ve got home from the office 😊

I know from postcrossing sometimes mail fails to be delivered, so please get in touch if you are expecting something from me that does not turn up, and I will resend

I rate the day I receive, so if I have not rated a swap you sent to me, it simply means I have not received swap yet. If a long time has past, I will send you a message to let you know πŸ˜€

I lived in London for 9 years, but returned to Ireland a few years ago, where the pace of life is more relaxed.

I’m married, and we have a 5 year old son.

I love to travel, I love France, even the simple pleasure of time spent in a French supermarket, as they have the best chocolate aisle πŸ˜„. I enjoy researching and planning holidays. I'm a big fan of US National Parks, due to their variety and inspiring landscape.


I have visited

Andorra, Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Egypt, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal, Scotland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden & Wales

USA - Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, South Dakota, Utah & Wyoming


In the future I would love to visit JapanπŸ‡―πŸ‡΅

Music - 🎡 I like to listen to all sorts of music, really it depends on my mood. My Spotify has plenty of variety, I do not listen to Jazz and rap much 🎢

I enjoy walks on the beach, going out for dinner. Life is busy, so I find that don’t have much time for reading.

I have a sweet tooth, I love chocolate, although not white chocolate so much. I love to try chocolate that I cannot get in my country. I like chocolate with flavours too (orange, mint, coconut, coffee, nuts etc) . I’m such a chocolate fan, that if I make porridge/oatmeal I add cocoa powder, flaked almonds and fresh raspberries, so it’s more a dessert than breakfast πŸ˜ƒ. Happiness is cake, coffee and a chat with a friendπŸ˜„.

Favorite colors - Purple, lilac, blue, teal, pink

Comment: Thank you for the lovely cards and stickers - even the envelope it came in was pretty. I'm a programmer in medical software and have been hiding out since last March - but Sunday my husband and I ate out for the first time since then at a place called "Rodeo Goat" Only in Houston, TX! (and no, they serve beef not goat) - Happy Swapping!

PrincessP rated for Share your Country #7 on Apr 4, 2021
Comment: Wow Wow Wow! Thank you so much Mary :D I adore everything you sent to me. When I opened the jewel of an envelope I was hit with the yummiest fennel/aniseed smell from the teabag - I love aniseed so this was amazing. Everything you chose to send me is so great :) Unfortunately the magnet got a break in it, but my partner is already on the job of repairing it and it will take pride of place on our fridge. Most of my ancestry is Irish, so I can't wait for the day I can travel there - your package was wonderful :D THANK YOU!
Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed the swap, I guess the injury to the magnet was a result of so many airmiles travelled πŸ˜€. Thanks for the heart ❀️
