About Me

Due to the Coronavirus, I have decided to stop sending mail via snail mail for so many reasons. I'm sure our postal workers are going to find themselves in a situation where I don't want to add to their workload. I have one outgoing snail yet to do that I will endeavour to do.

'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 11 & 14. We now have a golden retriever puppy called Cooper. I love to cook and I'm a keen photographer.

I try to swim twice a week, run once a week, and Saturday mornings are now Zumba and Pilates.

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 Music

I love a good mix of music, an indie/rock girl mainly but add someone like Adele and Sam Smith to the list also.

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

Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely pockets that you made for me. I like your paper selection and the butterfly touch that you added. Thanks for the tags and extras that you included. Fun fact: my maiden name is Johnson. You are the first Johnson I’ve met from the UK. A few weeks ago I met some gentlemen from the UK at a Technology conference. They were from the Wakelet company. Have a great weekend!
Response: Thanks for your kind words, a fun fact for you, I used to live in Dallas so not to far from your neck of the woods. Thanks for the rating and heart.
