About Me

UPDATE!! On my maternity leave. ** I have just started a full time job and find it hard to find time for anything but work and my daughter. I am going to take a little break from Swap-bot and come back when life has returned to a bit more routine. I will finish the swaps I am in of course.** ** UPDATE!! I have just been made redundant from my job so I might be slightly behind in my swaps as life has gone upside down suddenly. Apologies!**

Finland UK

My name is Minna and I am a 39 years old woman from Finland. I live in the UK at the moment. I am a mum of one very active little girl and she has taken over my life. I am hoping to get back to swapping in the new year. :)

I enjoy writing letters, I write long and chatty letters and would expect to receive the same back.

If you're going to be late sending, please contact me. I understand that life happens. If you have not received something from me, could you please first ask me before you rate. I always send my swaps! :)



I love animals but don't have any pets at the moment. I like all kinds of animal stuff, specially funny animal postcards (black & white). One of my favourite animals are penquins.


I like any kind of stickers but no reward stickers, please.

Wasgij puzzles


I really enjoy watching movies and I usually like all kinds of movies. My favourite ones are French movies (especially comedies). "Amelie" and "Closet" for example. Other movies I like are "Back To The Future" movies, "Star Wars" and Christmas movies.

TV shows

I love my couch and I watch a lot of TV. Here's some of my favourites. Come Dine With Me (Dave Lamb!!), Harry Hill, BB, Agatha Christie's Poirot and Miss Marple, BBC's Pride and Prejudice and Emma, Keeping Up Appearances, Terry & June, Malcolm In The Middle, Frasier, Friends, Sex and The City. There's so many! But my all time favourite series is Los Serrano. Most of you probably have never heard of it...unless you are from Spain or Finland. :)

The Office

I must give The Office a seperate space as that's how much I love that program! And I'm talking about the original The Office not the american one. Brent

By now you've probably realised that I'm a bit of a couch potato. But I do love some sports too. I do Clubbercise. I would love to continue rollerblading but in UK it's a bit difficult. I used to go to the gym (I wouldn't put it as a like though) but I don't get much time nowadays. My favourite sports to watch on telly are ice hockey and ski jumping. :D


I could spend hours in a book store or library. My favourite books are Harry Potter books. I also like Patricia Cornwell's books about Kay Scarpetta. I like reading biographies and my favourite so far has been Michael J. Fox's.


My all time favourite is Asterix. I can read those over and over and never get bored. :) Newer favourite is Nemi, who has saved me from lot of depression on hard times. :) Other cartoons I like are: Mutts, Calvin & Hobbes, Dilbert (read it and you'll know what my work is like) and Baby Blues to mention few.


I have no specific favourite. I prefer writing paper that you can use the both sides of it. I like all kinds of cute animal note books and memo sheets.

I love buying different colour pens and have just bought new pencil cases so I can "accidently" buy loads more pens again. ;)


Dark Blue, Dark Purple, Black&Red compination


Cute owl stuff is always welcome. :)

Lip balms

I have many but I am always happy to receive more. No coconut or coffee ones, please.

Bath stuff

I have only lately started having baths. It's not very usual in Finland. We go to sauna. I would like to receive bath bombs and other bath stuff.



Anything with even tiny bit of coffee...yuck!

Lacey, ruffle, pink girly stuff.

I can deal with pink if it's not too girly.


What can I say...discusting.


Just don't like the taste. My fiance loves it though, so if you send me something with coconut, he will be happy. ;)

Comment: Thanks for the swap. That is on my ‘to watch’ list but I haven’t been able to watch much for months so the list keeps getting longer.

Hi Minna!

It's lovely to "meet" you! Just dropping by to say Hi! Hope you have a lovely day :-)

jessnewson98 on Apr 6, 2021:

Hiya Minna!

Your profile is very cool (I'll admit to googling "Wasgij Puzzles" because I had no idea what they were but I realise there a brand of puzzle, right?).

I've never seen either version of The Office, but my friends keep telling me to, so after reading your profile I might just have to!

Anyway, I hope your week is amazing!

I really enjoyed reading your profile. I’ve never seen the non American version of The Office but I really don’t like the American version. I love writing long chatty letters and sending postcards and goodies. Would you like something from me? Have a great day!!!

CapitanSmirk on Apr 5, 2021:

Good morning!

I noticed you like Harry Potter, me too! I especially love the audio books, the narrator is awesome! Anyways I hope you have a wonderful week!
