About Me

( .)> My name is Samantha a.k.a. Sammoning.

~I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm currently 25 years old. I live in an apartment on my own and have a voluntary job in administration for a few days a week. I also live near The Efteling, a wonderful themepark, I visit it frequently!

~I'm in a long distance relationship, I met my partner online. A few times a year I travel to England by train to visit him (and to buy foreign postcards!)

~I've been on a break from April to November 2017. But with the holiday season coming up, I wanted to be back here! I love this time of year but I don't have many people in my life to share it with. Time to take the matters into my own hands!

About Mailpeople and rating

~~~The mailpeople

Mail gets delivered here on Tuesday to Saturday.

Mail gets picked up on Monday to Friday at 5pm.

~I noticed outgoing mail usually takes longer than incoming mail from the same location.

~I mark my swaps 'sent' when I finish writing them (and they will go in the mailbox the NEXT day.)

~~~My rating pledge

~You can count on me to fulfill swaps with my best effort and before the deadline.

~I will never leave a bad rating without contacting you first and I will rate fairly and swiftly (but not always on the day I receive, because life.)

~Please contact me if you feel something has gone wrong, so we can find a solution together.

My hobbies

~Knotting friendship bracelets And not just your average summer camp stripy ones ;)

~Collecting erasers. This just happened one day, and now I have a few boxes full!

~Reading nowadays I mostly read in English, instead of my native language Dutch.

~Drawception it's an online telephone-style drawing game I recently discovered and I'm addicted now!

~I play RuneScape, a multiplayer online fantasy game. I will always keep very fond memories of it.

I'm so glad you received the card back! Although it took quite a while :/ Anyway, it made it's way to you! :D

Your beautiful envie for the AN: September WTA arrived in today's mail and it's wonderful! The cards are perfect! One of my favorite mantras is "Be the tortoise, not the hare," and being the tortoise bears many gifts, like the ones on the postcard! Also, sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. They have such happy faces. It's such a delight to happen on a field of them when driving along country roads. Thank you so very much!

Tinker60 on Aug 17, 2016:

Thank you so much for the great PCs you sent me in the PTG WTA for July -- they are all great! The tulips an waterfall ones are so pretty, and the Atomium is so interesting. . . and thanks too for the extra of Leo :-) I hope you'll join the WTA for August that is up in the group's forum. . . it's always more fun when we get lots of players!

Fullsteampowell on Aug 12, 2016:

Thank you for the extra Roulette postcard! I feel the same way about SwapBot as a social comfort, and it's nice to know I'm not alone. It's been a rough year for me, but sharing treats makes me feel better.
