The calm before the storm

I'm back at work and the Finnish Meteorlogical Institute has issued an orange awareness level for this region and two neighboring regions for wind and snow/ice which means that: The orange awareness level means that the weather is dangerous. Unusual meteorological phenomena have been forecast. Damage and casualties are likely to happen. Be very vigilant and keep regularly informed about the detailed expected meteorological conditions. Be aware of the risks that might be unavoidable. Follow any advice given by your authorities.. It's a nice evening to be at work during this winter's first worst case scenario blizzard. But seriously, the peak of this storm should hit us sometime during the night and I go off at 22.00 and extra people are called in to deal with the storm.

Back at home in the real world (I call it the real world now) there is only one thing that matters, our daughter. I'm amazed how life has changed for the better although sleep is a relative thing nowadays and you often smell milk puke. I love it.

Father's Day

Tomorrow is Father's Day in Finland. It’s a weird and good feeling because I’m a father this time. It’s been a while since I’ve actually celebrated Father’s Day by being personally involved in it since my dad passed away 6 years ago.

Our daughter is only a month a old so she doesn’t grasp the concept of Fathers Day yet but I think Nina have arranged some kind of surprise, she wrote so in her blog =).

Anyway I’m working the morning shift tomorrow but after that ends we are going to Nina’s brother’s place, her parents are there too. It’s cake and coffee, it’s a nice way to celebrate Father’s day with family.

Back to reality

Well, I'm back at work after four weeks in baby world. I did find a "good" reason to call home and I might be overdoing the daddy thing =)
