10 things about me

1. I love travelling, reading books, cooking, gardening, and crafting. I used to travel a lot – unfortunately, I don’t have much opportunity these days.
2. I am from West Ukraine. I have Ukrainian and Polish roots.
3. I am a daughter, sister, wife, aunt, mother, and entrepreneur and love it!
4. I have quite a few pets, a cat, 2 degus and lots of tropical fish (corries, guppies, neons, and sword tails) but really, I’m a dog person!
5. I have 2 children. Although there are 2 years between them, people quite often ask me whether they are twins.
6. I respect honest, loyal, kind, reliable and perseverant people. I really value friendship and do anything to help the friend in need (without making a big deal about it). I don’t tolerate two-faced people. Cross me once and I’ll dismiss you from my life without a second thought.
7. My youngest child was born with several heart problems and other physical issues. She had open heart surgery when she was 3 weeks old. I now feel I know as much about the heart as your average medical professional. She is on medication to keep her heart working to an acceptable level; she will require more surgery on her heart in the future.
8. My name is Oksana but everyone calls me Roxy (a friend couldn’t pronounce my name and called me Roxy, and it's stuck to this day)!
9. I am lazy, not to the point where my feet stick to the floor or there are no clean cups, however, I’m just chilled and laid back. I save my energy for important tasks as I just don’t like wasting my time.
10. I am a really shy and private person. Sometimes I’m terrified of meeting new people. I hide this by trying to come across as confident, but I probably overcompensate and end up being very loud. Basically, I’m an introvert but I try really hard to be nice in social situations. It doesn’t always working out because I always speak my mind without sugar coating!

and 2 bonus

11. I started my cleaning business in 2010 because I couldn’t find a decent and reliable cleaner. The idea was to do something for a few months to keep me busy, while I was on maternity leave with my second child. I didn’t spend a single penny to set up the business, which took off and is still going. I believe this is because I pride myself in providing a personal approach to my customers and ensure that they receive the highest quality standard of service.
12. I love doing crafty things and am very good at it. If something is not quite working out I will spend as much time as is needed to learn how to do it correctly and will try over and over again to make it perfect. It is either perfect or nothing!
