Dependent on the mood I'm in, I like all sorts of music from Classic (Bach, Beethoven, Tschaikovsky),
Vocal Jazz (Standards - Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington) and Pop Music (as long as it's not -what we call- 08/15) to Country or Worldmusic (from Africa or Turkey).
My absolute favourite is "The sacred diary of Adrian Plass" - I've read it several times and still giggle while reading. - In general I like historical fiction, crime and humor.
I like british films, as I like their sense of humour. One of my favorites is "Keeping mum". I also like films that are based on a true story, e.g. "Kalender Girls", The Kings Speech, Florence Foster Jenkins.
I like series, especially Crime (e.g. Major Crimes, Rizzoli & Isles) All-time favourite: Gilmore Girls Couple of German and austrian films/series, e.g.In aller Freundschaft, 4 Frauen und ein Todesfalll
I used to be a teacher, but went back to university a couple of years ago to study psychology, which is great. I am married and I have two kids (a girl (2y) and a boy (4 months)). My friends and close family are very important to me - I love music, arts and craft, going to the cinema and playing badminton. I also like playing games (like card games, for example). I hate cooking. If I had a joice I would rather clean up afterwards that doing the actual cooking. However I like baking.
I can't really say I have favorite crafts. But I certainly like mixed media, messing around with colors, working with clay, stamping... I like trying new things. That's exciting: Always looking for new experiences... I love journaling and I'm getting into ATCs right now. I would enjoy mail-art, too, but haven't found a partner yet. I also enjoy sewing.
I always stick to my commitments, which means: I sign up. I send. And I rate. I usually send on the last day, and sending overseas via snail mail can take a looong time.
If you don't receive anything within reasonable time, please send me a note before rating to sort things out. I will do the same.
Thank you and happy swapping!
