I am middle-aged mom of two, a psychiatric nurse and ... I love books!
I love cozy mysteries, travel stories and books about food (not cookbooks as such) and modern writers like Anne Tyler, Paul Auster, Julia Glass etc, but I also love a good classic!
I read both in Finnish and English.
Most of the books in my wishlist are in English, but I would be as happy to get the same book in Finnish :) I update my wishlist very often.
Here's what else I like:
* CHOCOLATE , especially unusual taste or chocolates with filling (rather than plain) like chocolate with pineapple or Irish cream truffle or Frys Turkish Delight!
* I love the combination of sweet and savory, like chocolate covered prezels or something like that.
* I also love to try new food, cookies, drinks, spices etc. I love stuff with wasabi or ginger!
* I love to cross-stitch and quilting, usually just don't have enough time
* Notebooks, nice good pens and pencils, decorative tapes etc are always nice surprise too, and I enjoy hand-creams, body butters and such, the small sample packets are just fine. And I love woollen or cotton socks, size 40 / 6 uk/8,5 us
* A nice pillowcase or hand towel would be appreciated too :) All colours and patterns are fine.
* We have the Nescafe Dolce Gusto - coffee machine, so if you have extra coffee , tea, cocoa capsules for it (for ex. type you didn't like after all), I'd be happy to try!
* I like books about food (like memoirs) and cookbooks and kitchen equipment too!
* If someone has The Muppet Show - stuff (used) - especially Fozzie bear - I would be willing to swap it to something (like books, chocolate, you name it!) because my daughter is a big fan and we don't have much of those here in Finland. Just p.m. me! She also loves Doctor Who and other geek stuff.
