About Me

PLEASE NOTE: I am currently waiting for surgery on my foot. I have Accessory Navicular Syndrome and will be having an extra bone removed. The surgery should be taking place in Feb or March 2019. During this time I will not be taking part in so many swaps. My leg will be in plaster followed by a boot. I'll also be on crutches. I don't have a car, so going to the post office will be a challenge. If you're swaps are delayed during this time please bare with me ๐Ÿ˜Š

My name is Laura. 35 from UK. I have three children and two cats. I live in a seaside town in Kent England. My house that I share with my three children and cats is located on a hill, with views of the sea in the distance, a castle and the local football stadium.

Our home has gardens front and back which I love. When we moved into the house the weeds were taller than me! Now it's lovely and I really enjoy planting various different plants and watching them grow. My favourite flowers are Fucsias, primrose and pansies. The idea behind my garden was to have perennial plants that flower at different times of the year so there is always colour. I think I managed to achieve that quite well. The back garden is where my children play. But this summer we had an inflatable hot tub, which we all enjoyed.

I don't work at the moment due to illness. I have a condition called Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, which causes alot of pain, frequent dislocation of my joints and sprains that take months to heal. I've also battled with Depression and Anxiety for many years.

I am not s people person. However if I'm friends with someone I am very loyal and trustworthy until the person upsets me and refuses to work through the problem. I have absolutely no time for two faced people. With me what you see is what you get. There is no hidden agenda. I'll help anybody, I'll listen and try to understand other people, but if I'm not shown the same courtesy and the issue isn't resolved then I'm done. If there's a problem, just talk to me and I'll try and resolve it.

I can't stand people who have bad manners. When I hold a door open and someone doesn't say thank you, it really annoys me.

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ“Food & Drink โ˜•๐Ÿฝ

My favourite food to eat is an English Breakfast. Which is bacon, egg, sausage, beans, eggs and mushrooms.

I also love pizza! ๐Ÿ• vegetarian with pepperoni. Which obviously defeats the object of the pizza being vegetarian ๐Ÿ˜‚ but it tastes so good!

I also love a Sunday roast!

I don't drink alcohol unless it's Christmas day and I may make myself a Shandy.

I love coffee! Not a great fan of tea, but sometimes I'll drink it if I fancy it. I like two tea bags and plenty of milk.

Comment: Laura, thank you so much for the great swap I received from you! Your description of your garden was so clear that I had no trouble at all envisioning the beauty of the petals falling from from the trees. I had a Red Hot Poker plant once, but unfortunately, it did not survive the winter for me. I saw some at a garden center for sale and was really tempted to buy one, but decided to wait as I am re-working some of my flower beds and wasn't sure quite where I would want it. Thanks also for the extras: the colorful envelope with the floral card and the Gardening Word Search. This was a great swap! Best wishes to you!!!
Response: You're welcome. My red hot poles have started to flower again this year. I have a few of them in the front garden. One was there when I moved in. The others I planted from bulbs. Right now those daisy type flowers are in full bloom and cover the garden. Most of my flowers are perennial so they are green all year and flower at different time. Love it

Hello there!

I absolutely LOVE sprouts. I cannot wait to have them for Christmas- I don't see how people don't like them!! But a friend told me that frying them makes them nicer so I'll have to try it that way to change people's minds!!!

JATWCT: are you a sprout lover or hater?

sarahjp on Dec 18, 2018:

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

I celebrate Christmas with a tree and opening up presents on Christmas morning!! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!!

Sarah :)
