12 random facts about me

  1. When I was younger I was so sure I would never get married or have kids and now we've been married for 12 years and we have two girls, 11 and 8 years old.
  2. I used to always wear all black (I was a huge Metallica fan) , but luckily I have learned to love other colors too.
  3. When I took my hubby home to meet my family for the first time, my granny was expecting a heavy kind of guy (my walls were covered in Iron Maiden & Metallica posters) and she was pleasantly surprised that he was quite normal...
  4. I have a degree in International Accounting from the Hanken School of Economics although all my friends studied science and technology. It gave me an opportunity to study languages even if I've forgotten most of the German and French I read.
  5. I enjoy belly dancing and playing darbuka even if I haven't done it regularly for a while. I was a part of my teacher's dance group and we used to perform.
  6. I love listening to music: pop, rock, heavy, Arabic, jazz, almost anything goes.
  7. I sing in the car when I drive and believe me, I really shouldn't!
  8. I love to read: some romance, mysteries, fantasy, suspense, science fiction, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, horror, a little of everything. I really hate these labels they have to put on everything!
  9. I'm an only child, but I kind of got a brother later on when we moved in with mom's boyfriend and his son.
  10. I was a couch potato for a long time before I got bitten by the exercise bug. I've never been more fit in my life than right now!
  11. I love knitting, beading and doing jigsaw puzzles.
  12. I enjoy being home alone.


  1. When I was younger, I never thought much about getting married. However, I just knew I would not/could not have kids. One of those weird feelings that now I am so glad was wrong. I can't imagine life without my 6 and 8 year olds. I was also an only child and always wished for a sibling. And I love being home alone, too :)

  2. Metallica? really? I never would have thought. I love finding out little tidbits about people. And you didn't mention photography, you take such wonderful photos!

  3. Gunillia, we share some interests the only exception is the exercise bug:-) Have a nice day, Inge

  4. Such fun details about you :) Thanks for sharing!

  5. My parents divorced when I was young and that's probably why I didn't want to get married.

    Photography should have been in #11, but I kind of forgot it...I must be getting old!?!

    You never know when the exercise bug will bite you!

    I'm so glad you enjoyed my random facts! I had fun writing them.

  6. After you added the Goth/Tart picture on your comments at the Hive, I knew I had to come over and check out your blog! I think we are big fans of a lot of the same authors! I LOVE Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris... Glad to meet you!

  7. Nice to see you over here too Cynthia! I couldn't resist adding the pic, it's perfect!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
