About Me

I am retired and enjoying the time to do the things I want to do, including travelling, reading, cooking, crafting and catching up with friends. Drinking coffee is fairly high on my list, too! I share a house with a friend, a cat (Coco) and a dog, Meg, so things are fairly busy and lots of fun around here :)

Favorite Music

Probably the only kinds of music that don't really rate with me are heavy metal and of all things, country music. Not sure why! I went to a Lee Kernigan concert once and that was the end of me, never again! Maybe just a song here and there . . .

Favorite Books

Love books and spend far too much time reading! Crime, fantasy and Regency romance (starting with Jane Austen) are favourite genres, but I will just about read anything if it takes my fancy or someone has recommended it. Scandinavian crime writers are a current hit!

Favorite Movies

Favourite movies are period pieces and ones with stories that attract my interest, such as 'Saving Mr Banks' about PL Travers is one example, but there are plenty of others! I also like going to Star Wars movies, loved the Harry Potter series and thought Avatar was pretty special.

I don't watch horror movies at all and will not go to a cinema to see a thriller, mainly because I screamed out loud once and scared people in the three rows around me! Thrillers are now for home viewing!

Favorite Television

I love watching TV and enjoy things like Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon, The Connors, Murdoch Mysteries and Vera (the books for both of these series were also excellent) and home shows such as Better Homes and Gardens and The Living Room.

Some of the reno shows are also fun: Good Bones, The Masters of Flip and Home Town to name a few. Not all of them appeal though! Others include Hughsey, We Have a Problem and Have You Been Paying Attention?

Favorite Crafts

Card making is a favourite craft, particularly making Christmas cards. I just love all the bits and pieces you can buy and have quite a bit of stash that just relates to the silly season!

This year I also plan to make birthday cards, something I have never really done and probably should do - to use up some more of that stash! I have made ATCs in the past and occasionally completed the odd scrapbook page, which is something else I need to get into more as there is a trip from 15 years ago waiting to be finished in scrapbook form. It's now done, so I could do those trips to Singapore and New Zealand, as well as the most recent trip that took in Iceland, Greenland and Scotland!

Cross stitching is another interest, along with beading.

Love

Cats, of course!

The dog I share the house with - Meg's not mine, but she is gorgeous!

Buttons: they were a bit of a feature on the Christmas cards I made last year. Fun and a bit different!

Most colours, just not pink. Lime green is a favourite, not that I wear it. Like yellow, it is a very happy colour!

My footy team's colours are red, blue and yellow and they are the Adelaide Crows, playing Australian Rules football. If this helps with anything!

Stickers of cats are always welcome (who knew there were so many?), along with Christmas stickers. Other favourites are ones that say things like 'Happy Mail', etc, that I can then use to decorate envelopes I send out. I like most things, I suppose, apart from teacher, scratch 'n' sniff and religious ones.

I am also a member of Postcrossing and have been for (currently) about 200-odd cards! I enjoy getting cards from around the world, seeing the sights I have yet to see and even ones I already have! I love it that people share bits of their lives and that there is such a diversity of people on the site, from all walks of life. It is so very interesting!

Please avoid sending

Food items. I have been recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes (and can't say I am thrilled about it, either!)

Flavoured teas or coffee. I am boring and just drink my preferred brand of black tea.

As for coffee, I tend to go to a fabulous coffee shop less than 5 minutes walk away for a daily cappuccino. I only have the one, just every day!

Favourite Postcards

Cats (domestic) would be the all time favourite, followed closely by those of dogs! Just love my animals!

Another favourite are postcards that feature nature rather than man-made structures.

Other than that, I like seeing where other people live or a place of interest to them.

Comment: Thank you for all the sticky items you sent to me! It's so sweet to include many cat-related stickers and I definitely will use all the stickers (no matter cat-themed or not). Wish you and Coco all the best :)
Response: Coco, who's sitting on my shoulder at present, says thankyou very much! The purr in my ear is very loud and the typing one fingered!

Comment: Thank you for the cute Christmas card and for the random reindeer facts. I had never thought about gender of the reindeer. 🙂. Interesting.
Response: I can't say that I have ever thought about it either! It just went with the card! We will never look at reindeer in the same way again!!!

Comment: Thank you so much for the kitty PC - it came to me just at the right time - really needed it. The platypus is mt fav animal because it's pretty much nature's hot dog. I relate to it, but this message will get long if I explain here. I can PM you if you're still curious :)
Response: 'Nature's hotdog' is a good description for a platypus, I reckon! I am glad that the kitty pc added something good to your day and I hope things are going well for you currently. Thanks for the rating and the heart. All the best, Tracy.

Comment: What a beautiful postcard!! Sorry mine hasn't arrived yet! I'm just waiting until I get paid so I can get some petrol to go to the post office and get some stamps.
Response: I will look forward to receiving yours, but I am so pleased you liked mine! I had fun doing it, given colouring is not usually my thing! Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: Thank you for the interesting card and the very cool stamp! Here we are enjoying fall weather - it won't be long before it's cold, windy and hopefully, snowy. Best wishes to you!
Response: And I am sitting here in the warmer weather! I thought that card was weirdly amusing, while the stamp is huge! They have just put the postage costs up here, so I guess a bigger stamp is justification! Thanks for the rating and the heart. All the best, Tracy.
