About Me


13/9/17 I have received a postcard with no details on whatsoever, apart from my name and address, if you think this may be yours please PM me.

Hi, I'm Leanne from the UK. I'm 30, live with my boyfriend, our son who is 8, and a cat, Tipsy. I work full time as a Veterinary Laboratory Technician, but I do have a few hobbies :) I like photography, macro and animals/plants mainly, but I like all sorts bar portrait. We like visiting national heritage sites & museums - we have a family annual pass for the National Trust so we visit quite a lot and make use of it nearly every weekend.

Some of my geekier hobbies include playing Xbox, my GT is Pirate Jimbob, some of my favourite games are Fallout and Skyrim.
Love all things Criminology/Forensic.
Comic conventions - although I don't read comics, I still like going for the film/TV aspect, me and my sister always like to dress for the occasion. I have attended:
Star Wars Celebration London '16
Destination Star Trek '16
MCM Birmingham '16
London Film & Comic Con '16
German Comic Con Frankfurt '17
London Film & Comic Con '17

I will be attending:
MCM London '17
Walker Stalker London '18

I currently write to multiple pen pals, participate in postcrossing, and I like to collect washi tape, stickers and postcards. Crafts wise, I make cards, scrapbooks, Pocket Letters and ATCs.
Whenever it say's profile based etc, I am literally happy to receive anything as long as it's not on my dislike list, I do have a special request list if that's something you might have in your stash!

Anyway please bear in mind that I live in the UK, so may take a while in the post. I'm no flaker, I will only join those I have made a commitment to, so please do contact me if something still hasn't arrived in a reasonable time - this can be weeks! I do try to send as close to the assigning date to get a head start, but if in doubt, I don't bite :)

Do not rate me a 1 just because that option has become available, be an adult and talk to me first. I am always happy to resend if something has got lost, but I also need to know if you haven't received anything so I can claim from the PO, as I obtain proof of postage for everything I send, anything other than a postard which needs resending will be sent with tracking

I generally rate the day I receive unless I'm away. I don't do drama/sob stories/BS, if you're going to be late just be straight up and let me know before the deadline, I know we all have lives!

Always happy for you to combine swaps, as long as it's not for a naked postcard :) Please always put something to identify yourself so I know who to thank!

Shout out to my sister @Bexican137590
