The truth...

Last week I was posting 3 truths and a lie and now it's time to reveal the truth...

  1. I've never read a single Harry Potter book: true - but I listened to the audiobooks of them all
  2. I've already visited Africa, but otherwise stayed in Europe: true - I've been to Morocco as a toddler, so I've been in Africa. And that's the only trip so far that brought me out of Europe
  3. I'm fluent in 3 languages, including my native language German: lie - I'm only fluent in English and German, due to lack of practice I forgot almost all of my French and Spanish. Just have passive knowledge there
  4. I have never eaten shellfish: true - and I never will, as I'm allergic to fish and all kinds of seafood. The allergy was detected when I was little and eating fish fingers for the first time, so they are the only fish I've ever eaten.
The only one who guessed this right was Gryphon, congrats.

Week 1 games - part three

Finally I got around to posting the last part of this....

I have look through my spoilers and spoilees projects on Ravelry and had a hard time to decide about a favorite one, as they have made a lot of great things.

Helga Ze Horrid is my spoiler and I just had to favorite her Smily-longies, now I just need to find a little one who could wear them, as my son is already too old. But friends of us had their third child lately, so I might have an opportunity to get them done.

And my spoilee Lavender Ollivander has made some really beautiful crochet items. After looking at them for a while, I decided that her Spidey-Ghan is my favorite, as my son loves Spiderman. I had shown this pattern to him and asked if he wanted it, but he decided that it would be 'cooler' if I made it in black and white. Kids can be crazy sometimes.

Week 1 games - part one

I don't have too much time right now, so I'm just going to post part one of the games for this week for now - but I hope to get to the second part soon.

What is in my trunk?
  • English-German dictionnary as English is not my native language and even if I'm pretty fluent, there are words I just never heard before
  • eleven books as I love to read whenever I find the time to do so
  • Evangeline mittens in progress - got the yarn and pattern from my spoiler last term
  • eaglewood chest for my valuables
  • enchanted lock to keep my valuables safe inside the chest
  • essential oils
  • eraser
  • eggshells of a dragon egg
  • egg cozy patterns
  • elegant dress robe, just in case
That's it for now, I'll be back soon with more
