Preparations for the Winter

Well since it’s -5 C outside, the ground is white and powder snow is blowing around it was time to change to my winter jacket. A few days earlier I turned on all the radiators in my apartment to full. It’s winter…

New pictures

I finally have found a better place to display my pictures. I have removed most of my stuff from Spaces. Well my new picture page is http://dojle74.pixbox.se/ . It’s in Swedish but you can add 100 MB worth of pictures each month and that is just the free version…

The calm before the storm

It has been an exceptionally beautiful day, well at least before I got to work. The sun was shining and it was around +7 C and no wind. Well now it’s cloudy, +4 C and no wind. It’s still good weather for this time of year. Well that’s just the calm before the storm.

The storm that is expected to hit some time tomorrow are the kind of storm that brings 1-2 feet of snow and loss of electrical power in large areas, nice…

At work again

Well here I am again with 4 evening shifts ahead of me. Today’s usual X3M-lunch took place at a restaurant named Fransmanni (translated: Frenchman). It may be a bit expensive but the food and the service all makes up for the price =).

Laundry day

Oh what fun it is laundry day. Well since I have the day off it seems like a good day to wash, bedclothes mainly so it doesn’t go in the washing machine with one wash. I washed the covering with the first wash and now the other bedclothes are in the washing machine.

Another rainy day

I seem to write a lot about weather. But the say a picture tells more than a thousand words and if I describe the weather you can see the scenery in your imagination where I am.

But anyway, it was last night shift so I slept away the morning and after I ran some errands in the city I left for Pörtom to visit my mom. It’s not that I do a lot of things there in this weather but I like to check up on here every now and then and she likes the company. Anyway I carried in some wood for the furnace so it wasn’t all chit chat over the coffee table. But now I’m back home.

A rainy day

Well we got the winter tyres on and it has rained all day. The snow that fell earlier this weekend has all rained away. But winter tyres are good to have on. The mornings can be cold and the roads icy even when it’s warm and rainy daytime.

Winter tyres

After spending Saturday shopping I came home and thought I would spend a few hours on the couch. I have the night shift so I like to get as much sleep as I can outside working hours without spending all day in bed. Well my dog didn’t think so.

Anyway tomorrow we are going to change to winter tyres. We can borrow a garage so we don’t have to do it outside in the cold.

More snow

The snow just keeps falling down. Fortunately it’s warm enough for the snow that falls on paved roads to melt. That means I don’t have to drive very slowly tomorrow morning when I drive home from work. I haven’t changed to winter tyres yet…

Look, it’s snowing

It’s the morning of the 20 October and it’s snowing =). I like the winter. I try to forget that it’s cold and windy. Picture an early winter morning with a clear sky and the sun has just risen over the horizon. Snow fell the night before and the landscape is draped in untouched white snow. That is a beautiful picture…

4 night shifts

I’ve decided to add a picture of my dog Ella due to popular request ;-). Anyway it’s a mixed breed dog. Its exact components are unknown but I would say the main component is a breed called “finsk stövare”, I haven’t found a translation to English since it’s a Nordic/Finnish breed. Similar breeds in England are called Harriers. They are of the Hound class, which is mainly used for hunting. The second distinguishable component is likely black Labrador Retriever. Both Labrador and Harriers are both bigger and heavier built than Ella so there are other unknown components in Ella’s breeding tree.

Anyway I got 4 night shifts ahead. Since colder weather is expected these 4 night shifts might not be so calm as they have been during the summer…

Cap and gloves

While I walked my dog today I noticed it’s time to find a knitted cap and gloves. It was a cold wind outside today. The winter may be near…

Since I wrote something about that I should update my English blog more often this is it. And hopefully I’ll get a few subscribers too =).

Well last time I wrote I had two morning shifts left. Well today is my day off after that. I got sort of tomorrow off too since my night shift starts at 22:00. I had planed to play some World of Warcraft today but since “my” server is down for maintenance until tomorrow 18:00 it has to be another day.

Other than that I visited my mom in the morning. Then back to the city and our usual Wednesday lunch. We were only four people this time but we didn’t go to a big restaurant either. After that it’s been a pretty slow day…

Two morning shifts left

So now I got two mornings shift out of four left. It’s an early morning tomorrow morning since I got to be at work 7:00.

Come out and play

I don’t write my blog in English too often mainly because it’s not my mother tongue. English is a very expressful language but whenever I write something in English it’s usually not without a dictionary.

When I write something I try to convert my emotions and thoughts into writings and if you got your nose in a dictionary half the time that doesn’t work very well.

I’m also a perfectionist, I want to get things right. Maybe it would be easier to write if I didn’t look up every word I was unsure of…

The flu

I’ve got the flu. It feels like I’ve got a fever too but my body temperature is normal.
