About Poppy

Hi, I am Poppy.

I am minimum 30 years old, at least I was 30 when starting this blog, and might have been too lazy to change this information since then πŸ™‚

Originally I am from Hungary, but moved to Denmark in 2006, in order to study in one of Europe’s best business schools. I had this nice plan of getting a valuable diploma, go back home and get a nice job, but then this Danish boy entered the picture, with the most beautiful green eyes, and you can all guess what happened next πŸ™‚

I am just an ordinary girl-next-door, living in Denmark, a mother of two, sharing the happy moments, the sad moments and the poopy diapers with the love of my life, who is probably also the biggest nerd I have ever met πŸ™‚ Our daughter was born in 2009 and or son exactly 23 months later, in 2011. For this blog I am going to refer to them by the nicknames we used for them while they were still in my belly: Cherry and Paddington. We have just recently bought our dream home, and to make it complete, we’ve just brought home our very first family dog, a chocolate brown labrador girl.

I am a dreamer, I fold paper birds, I make baby pants, I sew horses on skirts and dresses, I bake an apple pie or some chocolate cake, sometimes I screw them up a bit, and I am just trying to keep our home together, while I’m still looking for my dream job.

This is my virtual happy place. Welcome!

  1. hi Poppy! Nice you visited my blog! why donΒ΄t you writte something about HUngary and I post it there? Besides the Marzipan, what do you miss most? πŸ™‚ Boldog karacsony kivanot!

    • Hi Grazielaa, thanks for stopping by! I write about Hungary whenever a topic gets actual in my life πŸ™‚ Luckily we live in an age where I can get all the nice Hungarian specialities I miss basically everywhere in the World, by post or something like this. So the “thing” I miss the most is my family.

  2. Hi Poppy! I’ve really loved keeping up with your posts over the last few months, they always make me smile! πŸ™‚ I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award. Reading the other comments, I see someone else already nominated you… but I’ve nominated you again anyway! πŸ˜‰ Joanna x

    • Thank you very much Joanna πŸ™‚ Nice to know I make you smile :)It is a shame I can only accept the award once ;)Congratulations on your nomination, I will chech out your answers! Hugs

  3. I came across your name because you made a comment on a blog by someone who was reading literature from all the countries in the Olympic games.You made some suggestions from Hungary.

    On my blogsite I invite people from different parts of the world to talk about the literature from their country – the feature is called A View from Here. The idea is to give people more awareness of literature in translation and literature from outside US/UK.

    Would you be interested in taking part to represent Hungary? The way it works is that I send you some questions and you answer however you want to. Here is a page where you can find countries covered so far – that might give you an idea of what I am looking for. The View from Here : Literature From Around the World

    If you don’t think this is for you, would there be someone else you could suggest who might be interested?

    Hoping you say yes of course!

    • Hi Karen. Thank you for finding me and for your comment. I would love to participate πŸ™‚ I have been living in Denmark for a while now, as you can see, so I don’t really have my finger on the pulse of Hungarian reading trends, but I will try my best. Luckily still have family and friends there I can ask:)
