About Me

Hello! Hola! Hei! Ajhoy! Halló! Saluton! πŸ‘‹

I'm an American expat living in Super Wonderful Scotland! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ³σ £σ ΄σ Ώ

I've got two cats, who I adore. They helped me keep sanity during the lockdown. 🐱😼

I started ice skating last year. I'm hoping to be able to join a women's ice hockey team at some point. I may take up roller skating in the off season. β›ΈοΈπŸ’

I love the Czech Republic and I'm trying to learn Czech. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ (I just signed up for a zoom online Czech class. I'm so excited!)

For 2021, my goals are * Do another endurance walk (50km +) * Learn how to play the recorder. * Re-learn the clarinet * Learn out to sew * Read more!! * Learn how to do roller skating tricks.

Favorite Music

Ska, Pop, Piano Rock are my favourites music types - although I will listen to anything.

I don't like Rap, Hip Hop, R&B and Jazz.

I love listening to: Walk off the Earth, Watsky, Lenka, Ben Folds, Kate Nash, Billy Joel, William Shatner, The Fratelli's, Cowboy Mouth

Favorite Crafts

Fused Glass, Polymer Clay, Photography, Jewellery Making, Cake Decorating, Ceramics, Loom Knitting, Resin Jewellery, Baking, UV Resin

I love crafting and love the challenge of learning a new craft.

Favourite TV & Movies

TV: NCIS, Hell's Kitchen USA, Ink Master, Downton Abbey, Deadliest Catch, Castle, Firefly, Naked and Afraid, anything with Gordon Ramsey, X-Files

Movies: Comedys mostly. I also like Documentaries and historical dramas.

DVD Wish: TV box sets. I don't care what season or show. I don't always have a couple hours to watch movies and by watching a tv show I can finish it without having to go back.

Favorite Books

I prefer non-fiction books. - Science, Natural History, Archaeology, Animal Behaviour, True Crime, Biographies, Autobiographies, History, Crafting, Cook books

My favourite themes include: Tudor History, London History, Cat Behaviour & History, Polymer Clay Crafting, Maritime History, General Crafting, American History, Language Dictionaries (except German, Danish & Spanish - I have lots of those.) Books on Beer & Coffee (history & cooking)

You have no idea how stunned I am with your gift for the "I collect...send to the person above you"Tag. Everything is absolutely beautiful and perfect. The glass pendant is so delicate and I am so moved you made the key ring just last week with me in mind. Thank you so much for so much kindness.

Received the "My Requests" tag from you. Thank you so much for the emoji socks- they are cuter than I envisioned. Also, thank you for the great stickers! How do you like living as an expat? My husband and I have been considering moving to Panama once we retire, as our money will go further. Though there is the language issue... Thanks again, Tracy β™₯
