Another week over

This week has been very busy at work and I have been struggling a little bit with my sleep. This is not the best combination, but hopefully things will stabilize and my sleep will sort it self out. The first is a luttle unlikely, but the second usually do. I did manage to pay my mother a visit and to go see a friend of mine one evening, but apart from that and band I have not been up to much after work.

While I described last weekend as busy, but good this weekend has mostly been a lazy one. Friday I was so tired coming home from work that after a little walk outside and some shoe shopping I just spent the rest of the evening on the couch watching Netflix. After such a lazy evening I went to bed early.

The going to bed early was a good thing as my habit of waking up early in the morning is not just present during the weekdays. So I had a nice quiet morning drinking coffee, reading blog posts and doing some work on my own blog for later. Friday came with so much snow that they had to close the runway at the airport for a few hours, but Saturday morning most of it was gone here in the center of town. I ran a few errands and then took to the sofa again, to watch some skiing and relax. I also made sure I got a good walk in seeing as the weather was sunny and the snow looked nice. The evening was yet again spent on the sofa with my man, Netflix, sushi and a beer or two.

Today is going to be spent on blogs, watching skiing on TV, hanging out with my friend and her little baby and going for a walk. To me this is a perfect weekend to balance the hectic week I had. I feel like, so far, I am keeping up with the goals I set for the year. Yes, I could always have done more or better, but I believe that by changing things slowly it’s easier to keep things up.

I hope the weather stays nice for the next week so that walking outside will be as good as this week. I don’t see things calming down at work for the week to come, but I am managing. I have caught up on some sleep this weekend and feel like I have the energy I need to meet a new week in the best possible way. The week will also bring with it the release concert for my friends new album, and I am very much looking forward to that.

Hope the week and weekend has been treating you well and that you are all doing your best to keep up with the goals for 2018. Unless you have found out that they didn’t work for you.

Update 

Hi all,

I am in fact still alive and kicking. But I have been very busy and a bit stressed lately. In addition to being a very busy time of year in general I have been traveling a bit both with work and privately. Hopefully I will have some time to update you more on this soon.

As if things was not busy enough now, I decided that I wanted to buy a bigger place and I have put my beloved little appartment up for sale. Had I fully realize how much work this would be I’m not sure I would have done it.  For those who want to see where I live here is a link to the add.

Hope all that all of you are doing well.

Weekend of rehersals again!

This weekend and all of next week I will be going to rehersals and playing concerts.  My band are going to go to Bergen the weekend after this to participate in the Norwegian National Brass Band Championship.  It’s going to be a very busy week, but hopefully it will be fun. I’m very much looking forward to going back to Bergen as I used to lived there for five years and I will get the opportunity to meet up with friends from my student days.

Work is also quite busy these days so time will probably fly by the next while. I’m really enjoying work and I’m getting more sure I made the right choice going there. Great people and interesting tasks.

The weather here has gone warmer for a while and the ice and snow is gone.

So that’s a little update from me. What is happening with you?

Busy but happy!

These last few week has been very busy for me. First there was a lot of rehersals and concerts with my band leading up to a competition last Saturday. We were very happy with our performance and so was the adjudicators who awarded us with a great third place!

After the competition there was no rest, because we entered a very busy week at work and I had to spend most of my time there. And this weekend has mostly gone to help my brother build a new kitchen.

This has been very busy, but at the same time I’m enjoying myself.  So I’ve been busy, but happy. I have had some time this weekend to catch up on some of your lovely posts and in my busy time I’ve missed you all. But I should have more time to hang out with you guys now!

Hope you’re all doing great and that the weekend is treating you well.    

What am I Missing? – Drop me a link!

Everything is starting to get ready for the competition this weekend. I’m very much looking forward to the whole event. It’s one of two yearly events where I get to meet up with friends and acquaintances from all over the country. Work is busy, but I enjoy it a lot.

Being this busy I don’t have the time to read as many blog posts as I usually do, but as I said in my previous post I don’t like to miss out on things. The WP reader only shows you a limited amount of posts and when you’re not visiting all the time you can’t keep up! So if there is anything you’ve written that you think I should see or you come across something I should read when I get the time.
