About Me

I'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

Things I don't like...

Tea, I don't drink it, so please do not send.

Things that smell overly sweet


I will always send when I have committed to a swap-bot, if you have not received anything from me, please let me know and I will resend. If I have not rated you it is because I have not received it. Thank you for your consideration. :)

Handmade - If the swap is to send me unwritten notecards/postcards, I would prefer shop bought - Thank you.

I like my postcards to be written and stamped, no envelope unless the swap states so. Please look at my l like list to get an idea of postcards, i would like to receive.

If we exchange blank postcards in an envelope, please no touristy postcards as I tend to use these to send onto others:)

Unless I am in a swap for handmade postcards, no thank you. No free/ad postcards either, thanks.


i love colour combinations: grey/pink, pastels, yellow/black, orange/blue, pink/turquoise, black/white, purple/silver or grey. My favourite colour's are turquoise, green and blue.

sunnysimo rated for EML: Postcard with a Prompt #10 on Oct 17, 2019
Comment: Thank for the lovely card! I really love to try scotch pancakes with butter and jam....we have here pannekoeken sort of pancakes, but they are thinner and we eat them with sugar ore sort of syrup and Im the only one in the family who eats it only with jam. XD When its rain its lovely to sit inside..I have a big craft room where I can spend hours then. In the summer I craft more in the garden. =) Working in the craft room is easier because I don't have to walk in and out everytime. lol I really love how you write! You're handwriting is very pretty. =) I also love the stamps. Greetings Simone
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and for the rating and heart. I've never thought of my writing as pretty but sometimes I just need to slow down and it comes it okay. Thanks
Comment: Thank you! I just love the postcard and the stamps, too.
Response: Thank you for your rating and heart, glad you liked it.
