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 you can find the books I read 2007 (113 books), 2008 (131 books), 2009 (128 books), 2010 (119 books), 2011 (147 books), 2012 (130 books) and 2013 (160 books). http://tiiti67.vuodatus.net/
And here's some photos of my everyday life:
Here's what else I like:
* CHOCOLATE , especially Cadbury,Hersheys, or some local companies. Not "multinationals" like Nestle, I can get them here. I love unusual taste and chocolates with filling rather than plain. I'd love to try chocolate with pineapple, for example. And I love Irish cream truffle too!
* 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 etc.
* I love to cross-stitch and quilting, usually just don't have enough time
* Notebooks, nice good pens, 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
* We are getting the Nescafe Dolce Gusto - coffee machine for X-mas, so if you have extra coffee capsules for it (for ex. type you didn't like after all), I'd be happy to try!
* If someone has The Muppet Show - stuff (used) they don't need - especially Fozzie bear - I would be willing to swap it to something else (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!
