My fellow blogger and twitter friend Octavia from Read.Sleep.Repeat recently did this and it inspired me to share some random stuff about me, somethings you might now, some might not!
20 Facts About Me!
1.- I am a nurse and I work in an Oncohaematology ward. Yes, it is tough but it is also inbelievably rewarding.

3.- I'm from Spain and my bf is from New Delhi, India. We met in the Star Wars message boards of all places, geeking out about the upcoming Revenge of The Sith movie in 2004... And yes, we are in a long distance relationship.
4.- I'm a science fiction geek/nerd/dork/howeveryouwannacallit. My biggest loves are Star Wars and Firefly.
5.- I am member of the rewards programs of three different airlines. AirFrance/KLM, British Airways and Emirates. Travelling to India at least twice a year means sometimes I upgrade to business class on miles alone!

9.- I am NOT a morning person at all! If I have to work morning shift I wake up thinking of taking a nap! I'm totally a night owl, and I rather stay up till 5 am than wake up at 5 am!
10.- English is my second language, but I started watching cartoons in English when I was 3 cause according to what I told my mum "I like them better, mummy!".
11.- I have a very ecclectic taste in music, I was (and still am, just in a different degree) a huge Take That fan, and I also love rock and heavy metal! I also love classical music, some pop music and I absolutely adore Irish folk music!

16.- I'm a huge suporter of the handmade movement and I love buying everything I can from artisans and small businesses.
