About Me

** I'm cutting down on swaps as I'm expecting my first child in January 2022. Hope to be back in the near future**

** I always send my swaps so when not received please contact me before rating. I'm happy to resend**

I'm a 37-year-old, living with my husband in a large city in the south of the Netherlands. We have a 6 month old kakariki ( bird species from New Zealand) named Blitz 🐦.

I am a World War II reenactor for almost 12 1/2 years (haven't had an event for over a year though) Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

Always willing to do a private swap!

JBuchner rated for MMHWH - Cup of Tea for Me Swap #7 on May 31, 2021
Comment: Indeed a very sad Harry Potter scene. I guess we all liked Dobby! Actually my absolute favorite character is Snape. Draco comes in second. I like characters with a strong storyline as in not being either good or bad but more complex. So thank you so much for this wonderful card! Take care!

... SO MUCH, for the delightful surprise Thank You package of fun surprises!!!!!!!!!

The timing is wonderful, as I’ve been feeling deflated with the tea swaps I’ve participate in, since most have not sent me anything! I do enjoy preparing packages for others and feel joyful doing so; it’s just nice to actually receive happy mail, too! . . . And you’ve done just that for me!!!

I AM So Grateful for you and your fun package! I love everything: the various teas, washi samples & cute mermaid keychain; I look forward to trying the teas, while playing with the washi tapes. β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ˜‡
