Unmarried and unchildrened twenty-something (rapidly approaching 30… eep!) English girl currently living in Karlsruhe, Germany. I moved here in September 2006 to be closer to my boyfriend, who I met on a year abroad 2 and a half years before that. We have now reached the stage where the time we’ve actually spent in the same country is more than the length of our long-distance relationship. We got a flat together in May 2010.
I have 3 younger siblings – a sister, 2 and half years younger than me, with whom I actually share two parents, and two half brothers, one on each side of the family. The brother on my mum’s side is 7 years younger than me and has now graduated from university, which makes me wonder where all the years have gone. On my dad’s side we have the baby of the family – at 23 years younger than me he’s young enough to be my own child! I never claimed my family was normal…
I work at a translation company, which is usually interesting but can be stressful.
I like pub quizzes, baking, cross stitch, owls, stars (I appear to have accumulated four different scarves with stars on…), seahorses, tortoises (and turtles, and terrapins), hearts, travel, making lists and reading, among other things. But you’ll find all that out if you stick around.
So that’s me. To read about the blog click here.
