Adriana, I was just tagged with these same questions by Paula (Sewconfused) and I tagged you, only I didn't know how to go about this tagging business, so I was just hoping for the best and thought that maybe if you happen to stop by, you'll notice it, LOL:-))

I know, I know I'm still pretty hopeless with the compu stuff, sorry.

You must be so happy to have your parents over, hope you all have great time. Wouldn't it be just too cool if they could move over there too.

I had a co-worker who's half bulgarian, her name is Juliska, at least that's what we called her, she was just awsome, great company, we sometimes send e-mail to each other and I really miss her not being there anymore:-(

I love that you worked as a waffle maker!

Nice to read something more about you.
I knew you were born somewhere in Europe, but I didn't know it was Bulgaria. Hey, we were almost neighbours :-)

I love Varna it is absolutely beautiful city. I love the sea garden, one of the best parks in my memory. And a nice mixture of quiet and lively.
I still love Sofia but is getting so crowded over the last years...

Ok, I don't know if I ever will get to answer to this meme on my blog so I'll just leave you a few facts right now, LOL!
10 years ago I was working on my current job but taking an university degree on Electronics at the same time (so little time to sew back then, sigh!).
On my to-do-list is buying groceries, cooking dinner, cleaning up my room, doing laundry and finish underlining my current sewing project!
I enjoy cookies and chocolate (ahem)
If I were a billionaire, I'd have my own business (fashion related)
Places I've lived: besides a coulpe of cities in Portugal I've spend 5 months in S. Paulo (Brazil).

Ok, I promise I'll try to answer to this meme at my blog too, whenever my life gets less hectic!!
