*10 things about me:*

I'm also Sabuja at Flickr!

  1. I'm 36, married and without children;
  2. I have a black kitten called Farruca;
  3. I would love to learn some more languages such as japanese, chinese, russian... At the moment I'm learning Portuguese Sign Language;
  4. My grandmother was a primary school teacher, both my mother and my father were primary school teachers and my sister just finished her studies to be a primary school teacher! :)Well, my husband is a French/english teacher, currently teaching English to Primary School students...;
  5. Stubborn as I am, I never wanted to be a teacher, so I tried other several things instead. I ended up as a translator and finally gave up and became an English/French teacher (in Secondary and high School)! :D I discovered that I love it but at the moment I'm also teaching English to Primary school kids...;
  6. When I was a teenager I dreamt a lot about traveling, know other countries, people and cultures; perhaps even marry to a foreign guy and live abroad... now, I swap!;
  7. love to do lampwork beads... I already have the basic materials to do it, I'm planning on start doing it in the 2008! :)
  8. I love cooking but I hate to do the dishes (in fact, I hate doing all the household chores :(...)
  9. I love chocolate;
  10. During cold and rainy days, I love staring at the fireplace, eating roasted chestnuts and drinking "jeropiga" (a sweet/spirited wine, better than Oporto or Madeira wine!);D.

I hope this will help my secret friends!

:) I like :)

ï?™ almost every colour, being all shades of purple my favourite, but also blues, deep red and grey...

ï?™ cats and dogs and almost all animals

ï?™ anything related to paper: stationary, handmade paper, origami paper, stickers

ï?™ scrapbooking materials: rubber stamps, embellishments, glue dots and adhesives, chalks, brads, peel-offs and rub-ons

What really makes my day are craft supplies of any kind! :D

:( I don't like :(

ï?™ I don't like orange much and I also don't like some shades of green,

ï?™ I also hate clowns!
