Favourite magazine

Crochet magazines

Cooking magazines

People' s magazines

Please, no knitting, gardening, card making, cross stitching, embroidery, beading or quilting magazines. I AM SIMPLY INTO CROCHET at the moment. Thank you!

Not good with paper craft and glue ( am quite messy and don' t like the feel of glue on my fingers!!) Also rubbish with polymer clay!!

About Me

French woman living in England, married with 3 children and one little dog! I work as an LSA (Learning Support Assistant) in a secondary school.

If you don' t receive a swap from me, send me a message first before rating!! Communication is everything!!

After reading quite a few other profiles, I realised I had not told you much about myself, just facts!

I find it hard to describe myself but I' ll try! I enjoy being quiet, reading a book (cookery, crafty, or simply a good story), reading profiles on Swap- bot!, writing letters or my diary, sewing, knitting...depending on my moods... I like doing things on my terms and I HATE rushing, which I do most mornings to take the children to school!

When I am in the mood, I go the opposite way and turn the music up, dance in the living room and am bubbly, daft, chatty, gossipy even!! I enjoy cooking with cream and chocolate. I don' t believe in diet foods, I always read the labels and am not a fan of E numbers or low fat food! I hate diet drinks! I think it is important to eat properly, without excess and have a real treat every now and then! I enjoy my food.

I garden with my 11 year old son and three friends. We rent 3 allotments and grow constantly during the months of February to November! We use the lasagna gardening method! Check it online, it' s magical and very easy! ( no digging!!!). We have been very successful. We garden weekly! I love growing vegetables, my favourite being French beans, leeks, tomatoes and potatoes. We grow lots of berries and make jam, jellies and crumbles)

Favorite Television

I enjoy Home & Away, Neighbours, MKR ( My kitchen Rules), I' M a Celebrity, Get me out of Here!!, The Great British Bake Off, Who do you think you are?, Long Lost Family...and comedies, and love stories!!

Hate watching sport on TV, especially football and tennis ( feels like the same game over and over again!)

Favorite Music

I love most musics, not too keen on Opera or Heavy metal but like anything in between. My favourite band/ singer are Yothu Yindi, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, Abba, and French music.

Favorite Books

Really enjoyed reading A town like Alice and Head over Heels by Sam bailey.Also love the Bridges of Maddison County. Lately, I have been reading boring books, I need some inspiration please, I don't like anything gory or violent. Just a good story, well written and moving.


Bad quality chocolates ( like cheap milk chocolate),


Cats scare me, they always stick their claws in my thighs!! Ouch!!








Family recipes,

anything handmade,

crochet/food magazines,

seeds for my garden,

fabric ( especially Liberty!!!)


anything useful,

anything warm, unusual, funny,


anything that takes me to a different place through taste/ smell,

good books

seasonal decorations/ ornaments

good quality chocolate, anything nutty or fruity, hot drinks ( tea/ coffee/ chocolate...)... Really love meringue and nougats and nuts!

I also enjoy food that contains alcohol!!

I enjoy Pilates

Crochet books (with charts!)

Cookery books

But most of all, I love my friends and family

POSTCARDS : I prefer a naked postcard with one landscape view ( day or night time) or a recipe on the front. Please, write the date on it and your 3 favourite places to go to ( on holiday/ vacations)! I " stole" this one from somebody on this site so thank you, it' s a good idea!! Please, don' t send me dull coloured postcards, like beige or white and very light yellow... They make me sad!...Take me with you on your travels! Show me the sea and the land and the food you are discovering!Thank you!



Earrings!!! All types, but no clip ons! I have pierced ears!!! Love food earrings!

Any colour, any material except plastic.

Favourite colours are red/ brown/ orange / ye!low and turquoise! Love opals!!

Also really like seed bead earrings and micro macrame earrings!

Favourite movies

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! , Elf, The Bridges of Madison County, The Joy Luck Club, The Untouchables, Twilight, The Theory of Everything...


Say one word and you may appear stupid, say nothing and you may appear clever!

Go where you want, die where you must!

Comment: Hi Charlotte, Thank you for the nice card showing the schools of Oxford. My wife and I have been there but I didn't have a PC. I didn't have any trouble reading it. The poor guy I sent mine to said he couldn't read most of it. My writing is bad enough with my dominant hand so no surprise. Best wishes, Neal
Response: Glad you managed to read it, now I have received a NDH post card, I realise my handwriting wasn't too bad but it took me a lot of concentrating to write it! Glad you liked it!
Comment: Dear Charlotte, thank you very much for your postcard of Oxford, one of my favourite cities in UK. Visited it several times, fond memories.. also thank you for the great ' The Old Vic /Hamlet ' stamp ♥️

I really like Stromae too, i listened him a lot when he first came out on TV around 2010. And now he's still producing good songs.

I am so glad you loved the chili! It is a favorite at my house!

I had so much fun getting you items for the advent calendar. It makes me extremely happy to know you are enjoying each day. Maybe we can do a private swap next year for an advent calendar? May your Christmas be extra special since you are extra special yourself.

I just received a terrific package from Charlotte. It was delayed because of her daughter's illness but it was absolutely worth waiting for!
