About Me


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).


Please let me know if you have not received anything before you rate, but give the postal system enough time to send first. I will re-send if swap hasn't arrived. Same goes for any Email, and message swaps.

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.

I'm from the UK, and a Lancashire lassie to boot! A lone pagan, 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. I ocasionally get Corpal Tunnel, and Wrist Tendonitus and handwriting can be difficult, or none existant. Addressing envelopes could be messy!

LIKES

Reading Fantasy, New Age, Urban Fantasy, Motorcycles, Supernatural, Mythology. Family History Research (extensive searcher for over 20 years), Card Making and other crafts, Pen Paller for a long time - have 7 current pals, Local History, English Civil War, Medieval History, Viking History and Beliefs, Butterflies, Dragons, Faeries, The Sea, Frosty Days, Rainbows, Scotland, The Lake District. Steampunk, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Gothic. Celtic Art, Pre Raphellite Art - John William Waterhouse, Rosetti, Cats, Tattoos, Paganism, Witches. Castles, Museums, Ruins, Isle of Man. Tudor Mint 'Myth and Magic' figure, unusual Victorian Glass, and 'Arts and Crafts movement' collector and a lover of anything unusual and out of the ordinary, cooky, erratic and very wierd sense of humour.

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.

HATES

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.

RATING BEFORE HAVING THE CHANCE TO RESEND. Nothing worse than being rated low and never to have been given the chance to sort it out first. Overseas post is terrible, so please be patient.

SWAPS I TAKE PART IN

My own swaps are sent out on the day partners are allocated, or as soon as possible after. I am, however, not responsible to what happens to them after they go into the post box, as with anyone else who swaps, but I will check to see if the item has arrived.

Also, I am in the UK, so please give any mail that I have to send overseas enough time to arrive.

MY SWAP RULES

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.

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.
