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.

All fingers and thumbs

Published: Sunday 2009-04-19.

Those who know me know that I am not a very handy person, but in a new flat there are things that needs to be worked on nevertheless. I am proud when I manage to assemble an IKEA shelf, or something else at that very advanced level…

With our flat comes a terrace on the roof. It has been beneath a couple of decimetres of snow this winter, but now that the spring has arrived the snow has melted and it is about time to make it ready for the nice summer days to come. Since it is new we need to cover the planks with a couple of layers of oil, so yesterday we began a bit by cleaning it. It is not very fun to be up there scrubbing the planks for an hour, but you do feel quite content afterwards. Now we need to get some oil, and then there is about to find some suitable furniture.

I think it will turn out nicely, even if one is all fingers and thumbs like me…
