About Me

Living in Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands, with my husband and two sons (14/15 yo). And our rabbit Tony. I work as a nurse at our University hospital in town where I run the daily business of the infection diseases department with my collegue.

Favorite Television

When watching tv I like series like House MD, NCIS, Criminal Minds and Outlander. Further more I love cooking shows such as Masterchef Australia.

When it comes to movies I like to watch Harry Potter (books as well..), Lord of the Rings (book as well), Avenger movies,.. Sometimes funny comedies and most certain movies like Up, Ice Age etc.

Favorite Crafts

I like to crochet and recently started knitting. With crochet I make amigurumi, blankets, shawls. Working on a temperature blanket at the moment. In knitting I like lace shawls and I am learning to knit Fair Isle. It is truly amazing. I started postcrossing a few years ago because I love to get snail mail and it's very special to find cards from all over the world in my mailbox!! Furthermore I like geocaching. Having found over 600 caches in several countries, and some trackables moving about.

likes/dislikes

So what do I like...

I like food!! Not much that I do not eat.. I like candy, love liquorice (as real dutch girl..), chocolate, crisps, nuts, you name it.. Besides that I like things that are about food, such as recipes, recipe cards, postcards with pictures of food or recipes on them.

I like tea and coffee. Hard to send coffee though but when it comes to tea I like spicey teas, black tea, fruity teas, well, almost any tea. Just not too fond of the herbal ones like chamomille or other flowers..

I like nice scents, such as lavender, vanilla, cinnamon. This may be used in candles, scented bags or soaps. When it comes to soap btw, Lush has very funny stuff!!

I like postcards, I am on postcrossing as well. Love cards sent naked.

I like crochet/knitting patterns. Though these are found easily on the internet. Favourite colours are night blue, petrol, moss green, dark red, rust/copper, gold.

I like flowers, especially red poppies, lavender and cornflowers, candles (normal and scented), and herbs and spices from foreign countries (cinnamon, kardamom, vanilla, ginger,..).

I do not like anything religious, so please do not send any religion related things. It will be thrown away.

Colourwise I don't like taupe, "army" colours (don't know what they are called, the brownish-greenish colours).

No allergies to anything here.

Flakers!!

Sad to have to mention this, I already had 2 people who didn't send their stuff...

Comment: Whee! I got it! Thank you so much! It was lovely and thoughtful of you to suggest this swap. I'm sorry it took my post so long to get it forwarded to me. But you have brightened my day and right when I needed it, so maybe the delay wasn't a bad thing. I really appreciate your gift. I love the tea. I love the chocolate. Thank you. :)
Response: Glad you finally got it. I was about to ask if I should resend... Your chocolate is real nice, I enjoy every little bit of it (and there are lots of little bits :-)).

You are a great swapper. You are a good person. You make so many of your partners happy with your thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity. I'm really sorry for the way things have been handled regarding that foodie postcard swap. It bothers me greatly that things spun so far, so unnecessarily and so quickly into the negative. Things like that just shouldn't happen - especially to an amazing swapper like you. I hope it didn't add too many clouds to your sunny skies. Your days should all be happy ones. :)

Hi! I've got you for the tea and cookie swap! Just read your posts of the board- so would you rather have a pack or one cookie?

Hi,

I joined your "After Christmas treat box"-swap and I got you as my partner to send my package too. Im so thankful that you live in Europe, otherwise it would have cost a fortune to send! I hope you will like my package. Will send it tomorrow!

Love, Anna
