I'm taking a short break from Swap bot to catch up on ratings, and at the moment mail is suspended to AUS & NZ from US and CAN. hoping it will be over after the holiday season.
Please let me know ASAP if you don't receive something. Obviously some things are much slower with postage, but i do send everything on time and would rather try to make things right. thanks :)
Hello! I'm 37 and live in NZ with my partner, our four cats & chocolate Labrador!
I really enjoy reading, going to the gym, writing and receiving mail, playing games and going on walks. I love board games and computer games, the games i generally play at the moment are : Animal Crossing, Guild Wars 2, My Time at Portia and Stardew Valley
Plus i don't mind a little bit of home reno every now and then.
Not sure what to write about? I love talking TV shows, Books & Movies. I play a lot of Animal Crossing. I would love to hear about your pets! Do you have some cool scenery you like to visit?
I love postcards, If sending Naked postcards, a card you think i will like will be great - but i also like:
art postcards (from your gallery or wherever!) I especially like van gogh
scenery/castles/beaches (I really like turtles and seahorses)
sea-based, ocean life, lighthouses, etc
animals and butterflies; especially deer, bears, and mammals we don't see in NZ (all the mammals basically lol)
Harry Potter, my favourites are luna, neville, the golden trio, basically everyone else lol
marvel or other fandom based cards
Pretty cards that you think are pretty! I especially love cards from etsy with illustrations and artwork, architecture & floral themes
(please don't send blank location cards for blank card swaps unless it's part of the swap, i only collect cards that are written)

Star wars i really like Padme, Leia, Jyn Erso & The Mandalorian & Child
I like a lot of books! My favourite genres are Crime, mystery and urban fantasy. I don't always love paranormal romance though LOL it's gotta have a plot :)! I prefer some escapism and happy books - fun fiction rather than serious classics most of the time.
Favourite series - very comfy reading - The Innkeeper series by Ilona Andrews

I do a fair amount of penpalling and love to join penpal swaps, but try to minimise it as I like to ensure i have enough time and energy to write return letters!
Don't feel I will be offended if at any point you decide to not return or stop returning letters, I understand how life can get in the way and that sometimes you just don't click!!!
I'm equally happy just writing or receiving a letter for the sake of letter!
Hopefully you won't have to worry too much about dislikes, but:
“There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.” ― Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic
