I live in Victoria, Australia. I worked in the law for 40 years. I retired 12 years ago to care for my dear mother, Vera, who is almost 99 years young. Three years ago she entered a nursing home as she is lost the ability to walk but is otherwise very with it. I spend my time doing all my favourite hobbies. These days I wonder where the time does go to - how did I fit everything in when I was working. Now there's a dirty word "Work" I've forgotten what that is.
I like Art journaling, stamping, card making, ATC's, ATCoins, knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, cross-stitch, oil painting and gardening in my very small garden.
Queen, 50's, 60's 70's Rock and Roll, County, Rhythm & Blues, Billy Joel, ACDC, Classical music of any kind but Beethoven in particular.
Harry Potter Series. I like to read biographies, mysteries and crime.
Finding Neverland, The American President, Overboard, Harry Potter, Miss Potter, Night at the Museum series, The Narnia series. I find all of these are my "Happy Place" movies. If I'm feeling down I can put any of these on to make me feel better, Any Johnny Depp Movie.
Friends, CSI, NCIS, Castle, - to name a few. I watch almost anything. I'm usually doing something else while the shows are on but I do look up if it sounds like something interesting.
I like watching all tennis tournaments around the world. I love documentaries I like the English show Escape to the Country, it's what I would like to do too.
I like all colours but especially purples, mauves, dusty pinks and muted greens - colours that give things an old fashioned feel. I also like bright joyful colours. Christmas colours of red, green & white.
My mother. Absolutely anything Christmas, Snowmen. Witches, Wizards, Dragons, frogs, hearts, Art journaling, Card making, cross stitch, gardening, oil painting. Seeing what other people do. I love life in general.
I DISLIKE - Anything religious or political in the mail. ATC's and Inchies with just stickers slapped on them- I prefer some thought to go into things made for me in swaps. I put a lot of work into anything I make to swap, so would expect others to do the same.
I ALWAYS SEND my swaps as soon as I receive my partner's name . Please let me know if you don't receive my swap before you rate me, so that I can fix the problem. Thank you
