Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Back at work

Published: Monday 2008-10-27.

After a fortnight’s paternity leave I am back at the office again. Even if only for a couple of days a week while I use up the remains of the vacation I didn’t take this summer, but it still feels a bit weird. The feeling is a bit mixed, in part it feels like I am missing out on valuable time by not being at home, but in part it also feels good that life is returning to normality, despite the big changes that have happen.

I am looking forward to the “real” paternity leave next summer, when I am going to be at home for eight weeks, plus the vacation. Alone. I guess that is when it will finally dawn on me what it means being a parent, the concept is still a bit abstract, the fact that suddenly a little girl has moved into our lives.

Nja, ensam blir du väl inte? Jenny kommer väl också att vara hemma om dagarna... ;-) Annars är det fusk.
