In wintertime...

...cocoa is on top of the list, how good does this look!? It's extra tasty when you go skiing and you get back to your cabin feeling exhausted after a big day in the slopes. Mmmm...

Cold, and 4 weeks till Xmas...

Just struggling with some layouts at work at the moment. Very hectic here, working long hours with stressful days..
It's getting really really cold, bought a new warm jacket the other day, I look like a giant... Snowed yesterday and today the sun's shining, well, for the few hours it's up.
Last weekend: played tennis (nowadays a highlight of my life), hung out with Vickan (priceless!) and did some freelance work (rubbish).
1st of December on Sunday, insane, I've been in Sweden for almost 5 months.......!! Not a day goes by without making plans to go back to Australia.. At least I get to open the first box in my chocolate calendar on Sunday! ;)

What do people want to do for New Years btw?

ICom portrait

Just discovered our new portraits are up on the intranet, thought I'd share it with you...
Thursday afternoon and I cannot wait for the weekend to arrive! No massive plans, just want sleep ins...
Some activities are on the cards tho, saturday - tennis, shop for a WARM jacket, and soccer/cocktail party with Vickan. Sunday - most likely hungover, possibly another game of tennis, hard to resist when it's sooo much fun!!
Not much has happened during the week, I get up early in the morning and come home late so not much else to do but work..
Half of November is finally gone, worst month of the year. (Best one in Australia?)

Monday morning

This is my temporary desk, moving soon to sit with the Art Directors but for now it works fine. My computer screen is massive compared to my own little tiny laptop... How good is that!
Weekend was good, no partying, just tennis, picking up some friends from a wedding and freelance work. Still very tired tho but I guess that's pretty standard for a Monday morning.

First week over

About to finish off my firt week at IKEA Communication. It's been.... slow. Not very well organised, got my computer TODAY. Excellent. However, I'm prepared to start work on Monday but could as well have been in Spain charging my batteries and build up some excitement for next week.
Anyway, I got a flat in Malmö for 3 months, it's a gorgeous 1 bedroom flat, abt 5-10 mins ride with bicycle from Central Station. Moving in dec 1st. Can't wait, commuting to work takes abt 2 hrs from where I am now..
Weekend plans: Tonight Friday - dinner and wine with mum, too exhausted to go out, getting up at 5 am is a pain...
Tomorrow - tennis, that's it. Sunday - some freelance work, gym and go to bed early for another 5am start on Monday morning.
Don't expect any drunken calls this weekend. Will try and have a healthy one....

In Malmö

Went south for a day of shopping and chilling in cafes. Great day, sun's shining and it's almost like Spain..... Except 20 degrees colder.

New job,

Well, I'm now an Art Director assistant at IKEA Communications, it's great, awsome opportunity, but everyone else seem more happy about my new job than I am? So why's that? First of all, I think I made myself more prepared to move back to Australia than I thought. Emotionally I was already there... And now when I got this job it messed up my mind a bit.
No Spain either, I'm starting on Monday.

I've given the whole thing a couple of days, and I'm starting to feel better about it, I'm even getting excited about the job! Only problem now is to find a flat, THAT could be a big challenge...

Anyway, we're still considering New Years in the ski slopes, we just need to organise accommodation and who's coming..

Next visit to Sydney will hopefully be in February-March 08.
