I love receiving goodies/treats that I can't get here in Ireland. I'm a big chocky fan and would love to swap for:

I'm always up for one-on-one swaps if there is anything I can send you from Ireland drop me a pm....
I promise to always send on time and put lots of thought + effort into what I send. I will also always rate positively when I recieve something, and am quite understanding of things getting lost in the post or problems with late postage.
