About Me

Finland UK

My name is Minna and I am a 36 years old girl from Finland. I live in the UK at the moment. I am a mum of one very active little girl and she has taken over my life. I am hoping to get back to swapping in the new year. :)

I enjoy writing letters, I write long and chatty letters and would expect to receive the same back.

I feel like some people in Swap-bot have no life and they get very upset if something is a bit late. I am not one of those people, I have a life and life happens and therefore I will never rate anyone 3 or 1 for a late swap. If you have not received something from me, could you please first ask me before you go and rate me. I always send my swaps! :)



I love animals but don't have any pets at the moment. I like all kinds of animal stuff, specially funny animal postcards (black & white). One of my favourite animals are penquins.


I like any kind of stickers but no reward stickers, please.

Wasgij puzzles


I really enjoy watching movies and I usually like all kinds of movies. My favourite ones are French movies (specially comedies). "Amelie" and "Closet" for example. Other movies I like are "Back To The Future" movies, "Star Wars" and Christmas movies.

TV shows

I love my couch and I watch a lot of TV. Here's some of my favourites. Come Dine With Me (Dave Lamb!!), Harry Hill, BB, Agatha Christie's Poirot and Miss Marple, BBC's Pride and Prejudice and Emma, Keeping Up Appearances, Terry & June, Malcolm In The Middle, Frasier, Friends, Sex and The City. There's so many! But my all time favourite series is Los Serrano. Most of you probably have never heard of it...unless you are from Spain or Finland. :)

The Office

I must give The Office a seperate space as that's how much I love that program! And I'm talking about the original The Office not the american one. Brent

By now you've probably realised that I'm a bit of a couch potato. But I do love some sports too. I do Clubbercise. I would love to continue rollerblading but in UK it's a bit difficult. I used to go to the gym (I wouldn't put it as a like though) but I don't get much time nowadays. My favourite sports to watch on telly are ice hockey and ski jumping. :D


I could spend hours in a book store or library. My favourite books are Harry Potter books. I also like Patricia Cornwell's books about Kay Scarpetta. I like reading biographies and my favourite so far has been Michael J. Fox's.


My all time favourite is Asterix. I can read those over and over and never get bored. :) Newer favourite is Nemi, who has saved me from lot of depression on hard times. :) Other cartoons I like are: Mutts, Calvin & Hobbes, Dilbert (read it and you'll know what my work is like) and Baby Blues to mention few.


I have no specific favourite. I prefer writing paper that you can use the both sides of it. I like all kinds of cute animal note books and memo sheets.

I love buying different colour pens and have just bought new pencil cases so I can "accidently" buy loads more pens again. ;)


Dark Blue, Dark Purple, Black&Red compination


Cute owl stuff is always welcome. :)

Lip balms

I have many but I am always happy to receive more. No coconut or coffee ones, please.

Bath stuff

I have only lately started having baths. It's not very usual in Finland. We go to sauna. I would like to receive bath bombs and other bath stuff.



Anything with even tiny bit of coffee...yuck!

Lacey, ruffle, pink girly stuff.

I can deal with pink if it's not too girly.


What can I say...discusting.


Just don't like the taste. My fiance loves it though, so if you send me something with coconut, he will be happy. ;)

  • Stationary
  • Stickers
  • Penguin stuff
  • Pens
  • Postcards
  • Sweets
  • Cute socks
  • Craft stuff
  • Journaling cards
  • Washi tape

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic

Johnny Stimson feat. Gisel - End Of Time

All my troubles wash away when I feel you breathing. Everything in its right place. I will gladly give you all my day. Even when the darkness falls around us and our bodies both let go, I just wanna wrap my love around your heart and soul.

I wanna hold you when it all comes down. Wanna be with you when the lights go out. I wanna spend forever by your side. I wanna love you till the end of time.

I'll follow you into forever, you''ll never have to be alone. I'll hold you close and never let you go.

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic Swap

Artist: Lost in the Trees Song: Lady in White

I’ve loved this band since I discovered them. The lead singer’s voice is hauntingly beautiful.

I’ve spindled in golden arms Such beautiful sorrow

The cyclone’s song falls around our homes Our hands reach for tomorrow

Always You always Hear the rainfall at night

Always Your eyes always Are repeating white light

I will give you your space We will speak tomorrow

Where the rivers rise and the birds crawl There is where I’ll hold you
