27/2/17 - Will be away from Swap-bot from 7th April until 17th April, no swaps scheduled, but will sort any problems out after 17th.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL ME KATHY, I HATE IT. MY NAME IS KATH, (there is NO 'Y' on the end, so don't add one).
Just a heads up - I'm in the UK and our dates are not in the same format as the USA. Ours run date/month/year and not month/date/year.
Also, Saturday pm is our last post collection for the weekend, and they are pretty erratic with that. Whilst I try to avoid this time, sometimes I can't. So sent dates and postmark dates may vary by a day, depending on what time the post collected.
I'm from the UK, and a Lancashire lassie to boot! A lone pagan hedge witch, and biker, I live with my partner of 35 years, No kids or pets, but love cats especially big fluffy ones and tigers. Retired and loving it. Published Poet.

Would love anything featuring the above, but am not fussy. There is a Wish List below.
I had heard about Swap-bot from others on pages on face book, and as I love giving and receiving mail that has surprises in. I thought that I would give it a go. Also to learn about different places and cultures - what other people like and don't like, and just to make others happy.
What am I hoping to get out of it? a sense of happiness in swapping, to have some fun, and to get some lovely mail. I am a conscientious swapper, and if I sign up for a swap, I will send. I DON'T FLAKE.
BEING CALLED KATHY, OR MY FULL NAME - KATHRYN, please don't do it. Smoking, rude people, bad manners, racism, anything plain white, yellow or brown, amphibians, green beans, mushrooms, cooking, getting up early, boring postcards.
NONE RATERS. Not very nice, it is rude and not good when someone has taken the trouble to send you a swap, and it is the only way to tell if the swap has arrived at its destination. Nothing worse than being rated low and never to have been given the chance to sort it out first.
SWAPS I TAKE PART IN
My own swaps are sent out on the day partners are allocated, or as soon as possible after. Postal swaps are brand new items, or a couple of days old, they are sent out clean and well packed. I expect the same in return.
I am, however, not responsible to what happens to them after they go into the post box, as with anyone else who swaps.
Also, I am in the UK, so please give any mail that I have to send overseas enough time to arrive, if nothing has turned up five weeks after my send date, please let me know before you rate, and I will re-send.
Same goes for any Email, and message swaps. I will re-send, if you have not got anything. Just let me know before you rate.
I will only re-send larger items once. I take photographs of the envelope, postage cost, address ect as proof of postage. For some countries, prices for tracked items are far more expensive than the item itself, so I will only do this as a last resort.
MY SWAP RULES
9/2/17 - Rating criteria for all my future swaps will be 4.99. Present rating criteria for swas on dashboard will not be changed. If you have a lower rating and still want to take part, I may be able to set up a private swap. Message me.
Don't ask me to change a swap criteria so that you can take part though. Sorry, but, my swaps, my rules. You are welcome to set up similar swaps, but don't blatantly copy word for word. that is downright nasty, and I will report you to Admin.
If you are going to be late with your swap, please let me and your partner/s know as soon as you can. I won't have to chase you then, and it is only courtesy. I do send out a reminder to all participants in my swaps, if they have not sent by a day or two prior to the deadline, just in case they have forgotten.
When I host a swap, I will only angel swappers who have not flaked on that particular swap. If you flake and your partner flakes, I will not angel. If you send and your partner flakes I will angel.
I reserve the right to ban anyone who has any of the following:- Recent 1s or 3s that are your fault (the last 3 months). Unresolved 1s or 3s (the last 12 months). Three, or more 1s or 3s, sorted or not, in the last 12 months (counting from last sign up date of swap).
You must also be an active member of Swap-bot - i.e. You must have signed in at least 3 days before the sign up date of my swap.
If you do flake, you will be banned from any other of my swap.
Group Swaps - see individual swaps for rules.
These are my swap rules, if you don't like them, don't join my swaps.
I won't rate a 1, unless absolutely necessary.
Sorry to sound harsh with all this, but I'd rather be upfront and honest with my swap rules.
