Well I am Catherine from the UK, England. I live in the North on the east side of England. I have 7 niece's and nephew's, so I enjoy being a auntie to them all, even when they can be a handful at times :) I have worked at the same company for 21 years and I sometimes wonder do I need to change? Love penpalling, travelling, reading (very slowly turning into a book worm), crafting and learning new crafting hobbies currently learning this pocket letter art and I belong and run a Yahoo swapping group that only do ATC's and DECOart and been doing that a few years now too and also love swimming, walking, going to the Cinema to watch endless films, love postcards esp to the places I have travelled from.
Also IF PEOPLE ARE SENDING POSTCARDS TO ME, PLEASE TRY AND SEND CITIES/TOWNS, IF NO TOURIST TYPE AVABILY POSTCARDS, THEN PLEASE TRY AND USE YOUR IMAGINATION OF WHAT I MIGHT LIKE ie ANIMALS OR ANYTHING ELSE Thank you. JUST TOURISTY if possible THANK YOU. Stamps don't mind if they have been marketed or not IF SWAPPING, BUT NOT THE COPY KIND YOU BUY FROM SHOPS. MUST COME OFF AN ENVELOPE OR BOUGHT FROM YOUR POST OFFICE.IF you don't have fancy no worries It can't be helped, but try and not have franked stamps thank you. I use to hate collecting fridge magnets but now everytime I travel I pick one up to remind me of the places I have been. Did I tell you I love to travel?? If only i won the lottery I would travel the world till I have no money left to play with :) I have always dreamt that I would work in fashion as I have a degree in this area, in this dream I would work behind the the scene of the film industry.
PLEASE NOTE, I HAVE TWO INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS. ONE IS FOR MY TRAVEL PHOTO'S AND THE OTHER IS FOR MY SWAP-BOT/PEN PAL, AS PROOF THAT SWAPS GO OUT ON TIME. SO IF YOU LIE TO ME and I find out, I WILL BAN YOU AS I ALREADY HAVE PROOF OF MY MAIL. Been burnt to many times so now I have to take this approach sadly. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A LOOK OR ADD ME HERE ARE MY TWO ACCOUNTS!! cashmcgowan2012 (is my travel photo's) cash_decoworled (my swap-bot, pen pals and deco accounts)
I love all kinds of music to be honest. It's kind of all over the place. From Snow patrol, Keane, Chrches then they is the happy fast music like Scooter, dance music, slowly going to till Enya, Paloma Faith, Jem to the very hard rock music Linkin Park, Sigur Ros, and they is the pop music like Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding and Madonna
just love, love, love to read and will read anything that is put in front of me. So, I really don't have a favorite writer, but I usually go for Sci-fi, Thriller and horror books the most then the rest goes on recommendations or the price of books/kindle.
just love, love, love going to the Cinema and will see anything that worth paying for So, I really don't have a favorite directors, but I usually go for Sci-fi, Thriller and horror films the most then the rest goes on recommendations. I'm like a kid that needs to be fed stories and try to imagine a different world from mine :)
I just LOVE to travel. I'm always looking for a bargain holiday to travel to and been to so many places and there's still lots of places to discover still on my wish list. As a child I came from a poor back group and could never travel abroad so most hols was in the UK (loved them) but at 15 I discovered travelling with my step-dad and took me and my family to Tenerife, by 17 I went to switzerland with the Girl guides and at 18 I was away to India and never looked back since then. Since then I have been to, India x2, Thailand, Malaysia, USA, Belgium, France, Holland x2, Finland x3, Sweden, Estonia, Italy, Germany x2, Crete/ Santorini (Greece), Switzerland, Czech republic, Ireland x2, Portugal, Spain (mainland), Latvia, Tenerife x5 (canary Islands) and Austria. I'm now looking for my next big adventure
