A bit about me

Well, now that I've moved in here I guess it's time for some kind of introduction. As you probably know by now my name is Helga and I live in Sweden. I work part-time as a medical secretary and study part-time, at the moment an Internet-based course in theology (or more correctly the science of religions as a translation of the Swedish title). I love to learn new things and I will probably go on as an eternal student and as long as I can go on mixing work and studies I will continue. Of course I would like to "become something", but I don't have any specific goal for the moment, when the right job opportunity comes my way I'll know what I want to do.

I share my home with two cats, a Bengal male, Dani, and an Ocicat female, Ninni. I love cats and there's almost always been one or more cats living with me. These two have shared my space for three years now, Dani's been here since April 2004 and Ninni moved in in November 2004. Most of the time they are good friends but as all friends they have their fights now and then. Ninni is very much the one in command, Dani often leaves when she comes and wants a warm place to sleep in.

Other things that interest me are gardening; I have an allotment garden where I spend a lot of time in the spring, summer and autumn. Now most of the work is done and it's time to start waiting for the seed catalogues to arrive in January, to begin planning for next years planting.

Other hobbies are cross stitch and other crafts (knitting, crocheting, sewing, making jewelry and much more), even if cross stitch is a favourite evening past-time. Reading of course, both fiction and non-fiction; love science fiction and fantasy novels, history books of all kinds, gardening books (of course) and subjects like philosophy, psychology and much more. I'm interested in aromatherapy and try to make my own body care products and soaps. I like to have music around me and now when I've found Internet radio I like to listen to different kinds of radio channels, depending on which mood I'm in or what I'm doing, there's always something that suits.
