About Me

I live In New Zealand. I am in my 50's.

Since I was a child I have corresponded with pen pals around the world swapping letters, postcards, friendship books, stickers etc. i am hoping to gain new pen pals and lifetime friendships through swap bot.

I have done a lot of traveling a round the world but still love to see new places from countries I have been too or not yet been too.

Since early 2018 I am not collecting as much as I used to because I am seriously into removing clutter from all areas of my life. Check out my blog.

My favourites likes are: reading, sunflowers, penguins, bright colours, buttons, beaches, kites, quilt history, women artists before 1950, art history esp impressionism scriptures from the bible. historical churches and other buildings. classic cars from 50's, 60's etc. social issues/justice, writing to pen pals.

Favorite Music

Old music from the 60s, 70s, 80s etc. Bryan Adams. Christian music. Any really apart from Opera and Rap. I like Michael Buble.

Favorite Books

I like reading books on Self improvement, Inspirational, Social issues, Justice and true stories of people making positive differences in the world.

I read a lot of Christian fiction.

I enjoy reading art history books especially on women artists.

2018 I am reading books on clutter/declutter and minimalism.

James Patterson is my favourite crime writer. Debbie MacComber for her stories..

As a child I used to love reading stories by , Enid Blyton. Marcia Martin , Donna Parker series. Sue Barton series books. Monica Dickens. I collect them and still love reading them.

2018 I thought I would start reading another genre. So far I have been reading a few fantasy books.

Favorite Crafts

Quilt history. Knitting for charity. Drawing. Learning new crafts.

Favorite Movies

Love old movies like musicals and from the 50's, 60's etc. Also modern day movies.

Favorite Television

Don't watch a lot of t.v. If I do it will be sports, drama usually UK production, documentaries on animals, the earth and countries. Also like mainly UK comedy.

Mail

Mail.

i don't mind receiving postcards either naked on in am envelope. personal message preferably in an envelope.

As I live at the bottom of the world sometimes my mail may take longer than normal mail so please don't rate me down because of that. Notice that postcards take longer than letters.

Dislikes

Dislikes. PLEASE DO NOT SEND TEA.
I dont drink tea or coffee as I dont like the taste so please dont send me any thank you. Also customs may refuse your mail if they find mail containing tea bags. Thank you.

About Me

NON RATERS.

I dont like naming non raters but over time I have had so many people not rate me, especially in email swaps. i also understand that life gets in the way and that there is more to life than swap bot rating but mainly I have done this for my own memory.

mellyrose89. melanie f from australia. 2 swaps she did not rate me for, one was for Christmas card swap for the group bookworms and pen pals.

Nachtauge Jennifer W from Germany. swap: Nana prep 31 day free workshop. Has already got 5 ones from other swappers as I write this.

This is crazy, but I was actually an extra in "Everything Must Go!" That was probably one of the last big movies to be filmed here. The AZ Legislature didn't renew the film incentive, so they fly over us to NM now. Fun being in the film. They used my car also, but I've never been able to spot either of us in the film.
