About Me

I am proud of my 900+ 5 ratings I always send my swaps so when not received please contact me before rating. I'm happy to re-send

I'm a 36-year-old, living with my husband in a large city in the south of the Netherlands.

I lost my teaching job back in Dec 2019 and due to being in the middle of an IVF treatment and Covid-19, I tutor students online.

I am a World War II reenactor for almost 12 1/2 years (haven't had an event for over a year though) Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

Always willing to do a private swap!

Comment: Your Happy Mail arrived today! LOVED the selection of stamps you sent - so many countries that I don't have stamps from yet. My daughter enjoyed looking through them with me as well.
