5 things

I have been tagged by sweet Maja in her blog Multipuli in a funny blog game. I like games, so I ofcourse I play! Its not an easy one, answering 5 random things about myself, you start thinking, what do I wanna share? Easier said then done. I always love how other people come up with these quirky funny answers and ofcourse I want mine to be the same:-). So here it goes:

5 things you didn't {want to} know about me

1. I am happy when the sun shines, so I can wash 3 loads a laundry a day and hang every thing outside knowing it will be dry in no time.It makes me happy, I find myself smiling whilst hanging the laundry and who knows why, its still a mystery.

2. I love books, I like seeing them in shelves, I like having them, a house without books is no house for me. Then I see these lovely DIY projects involving peaces of books. I would love to make one however I have never torn up a book...I do not know if I can.

3. I have a habit of breaking things, P truly finds that annoying. (Last night I broke the toiletseat whilst leaning at it, seriously. P Hasn' t seen it yet he is still sleeping now).
I try to fix it before P finds out, he doesn' t like borrowing me stuff afraid I will break it and he always uses the same argument...When we just moved in together P brought a long a huge tv. I put a plant on top and watered it...but as I am clumsy I watered the TV as well and the TV did not take it well and never worked again. My friends find these a really funny story. Yes, originally I am blond!

4. I love boxing. Its not something I thought I would ever like, I used to play field hockey. The first time I started boxing I would not hit the punching bag hard, I thought it would fall over. But still the next day, huge muscle ache. I have been doing that now for over a year and nothing and I mean nothing beats, beating the crap out of a punching bag! Brings me many positive things: less headaches, empties my head, gives me more energy, a better condition and a more toned body, which is good consindering the bikini season is coming up.

5. If anyone would off me a job in Portugal I would not hesitate and say yes! I have fallen in love with my second home and we would love to move there, unfortunately good jobs are hard to find. But I follow portuguese classes so my portuguese will hopefully be perfect one day (a person can aways dream :-))

Ofcourse I am curious about other people too, so I would love to learn 5 things from and pass the challenge on to these 5 amazing ladies:
Teresa from Photo Scenarios
Karolien from Studio Meez
Hermine from Journal de Jours
Camilla from Nao me mande flores
 and Claudia from Wide Eyed Tree

Have an amazing sunday!!
