Even though it was a very mild, fairly snowless winter this year, spring still feels as amazing as ever when it shows up. Cherry blossoms, sunglasses, roadtrips to our country house and that superblue sky. Of course, I could do without the pollen (I'm not normally allergic, but this time.. oi.), the grimey dirty look of everything and frequent weather-related headaches, but oh well.
Also, I've got a new job with my employer: as of May 1, I am the Internal Communication Manager for the Nordic Region. Very exciting, and a bit daunting - it's a completely new role for my subsidiary company, so there's a lot of exploring to do to figure out what, exactly, my job will in the long run. For now, I have the dual-role of my new job + fulltime training supervisors this month while we look for my replacement.. so, let's just say I'm busy, these days. It's a good kind of busy, at least.
Saw The Avengers last week, loved it. Saw Iron Sky a few weeks ago, loved that as well. Gearing up for a lot of summer music festivals (standout acts: garbage w/shirley manson, patti smith, björk, lady gaga, feist, florence + the machine, marina and the diamonds, and lots of other good stuff), and in august, our german friends are coming up to see kent perform).
Other than that.. mostly busy celebrating spring. So.. I'm gonna post oodles of photo's from our country house (well, the garden, mostly), some very happy cows, and the valborg bonfire! (Am home nursing a cold, so that might explain the oodles of pictures.)
