Well I guess introductions are in order!
I am not going to write excessively long as I guess the more you read the more you will get to know me, but then again, as anyone who has ever received an email from me can attest to, I tend to go on quite a bit, and turn what could have been a small paragraph into a novel. I believe this stems from my days at University when I had to drag out essays to a certain amount of words, and write lots of stuff about something I knew little about!
Ok – enough about that (see what I mean though?) What about me?
Well, I’m Cecilia, and I am in my early thirties (although my mind keeps thinking I am still 26).
I live in Scotland with my husband in a tiny flat which is really small and has got way too much stuff in it. We are trying to save up for a mortgage but with the market here being ridiculously expensive I have resigned to the fact we will be living a crammed life for a few years more.
Like the majority of the population around these parts, I work in a 9-5 office job within the Oil and Gas Industry.
Originally I am from Scandinavia; however I moved here to study way back when and ended up staying put. Mainly because I met my husband here but also because after a certain amount of time, you manage to establish a pretty god network of friends, jobs, and just daily life, so it’s not just a matter of packing up and “moving back home” – Scotland is home to me now, however I still get homesick from time to time to my “other” home. It can be tough.
I like to try everything and anything, but I find I go through phases of doing things. For example, I have spurts when I do loads of baking and cooking, or at times I do a lot of reading. I have spent several years trying to do different crafts, anything from cross-stitching, to jewellery making, but have never stuck with it. Since 2009 I have found the one thing I really enjoy – knitting! Maybe I’ll show some of my stuff on here.
Well, I think I will leave it here. I’ve already written far too much! Do feel free to leave me a comment or drop me an email if there is anything you are wanting to speak to me about!
