Christmas Game

Keeping up the Christmas tradition of playing quiz games, this time "När och Fjärran", a game from the travel program on TV. My sister Cissi took the initiative and invited Lova and her family. The game is just as much luck as knowledge about other countries. That's at least how I justify the fact that I didn't win. ;)

Christmas 2006

Me and Wen has been down to Värnamo to celebrate Christmas with the family.

The greenest Christmas I can remember.

But the rest was as usual.

Tina with a lamp.

Perhaps not the most successful group picture ever! :) But contains all the familiar faces.

Merry Christmas!!

Last day of the new job

Yep. It is true. I've been let off. :-) But it is not as bad as it sounds. I was hired by a recruitment company who pimped me out to a consultant company which in turn sold my soul to Ericsson and Sony Ericsson. The 13th of December that company was shut down by their Norwegian mothership and I will be expunged on the 28th.

But... this is in fact sort of good news. The consultant company wants to hire me the first day I'm without job, with some additional benefits. Well, no contract signed yet so we'll see. There is also a slight chance that there are projects in Beijing coming up, but most likely not in the short term. Since I will still get salary for January from the old company, I will in reality receive twice the pay then. :-)

I've been working for about one month now and it has been dead boring. I've gotten so used to do what I want, when I want, so it is kind of hard to adjust doing something that I not necessary wants to do. I don't really feel like programming test systems for telecom companies. But... I need the money and something to do. They seem to appreciate the work I'm doing and that is a big bonus. And the pay will change our life quite drastically. We will probably become fat and fill our house with electronic gadgets.
