Moreover I had, as always, a nice and fun class, and we made many interesting excursions. But at the same time a crazy boss killed the joy to such an extent that I finally had to make the bitter decision to find something else to do. I don't miss my work place, but I do miss all the great people. Consequently, at the beginning of my summer holiday I didn't know exactly what my future might be like, but this didn't prevent me from enjoying the summer in Oslo and having nice trips to Estonia and Greece.
Fortunately I landed on my feet in August, as I was offered a job at another Adult Education Centre, with equally nice students and colleagues, and moreover an administration in their right mind. Here I'm happy and hope to continue working next year as well. In my autumn holiday I went on a short trip to Paris, and I also got the chance to meet my brother and sister-in-law in Bergen - and not least: see little Bo for the very first time!
This autumn the new class and I have made several nice excursions, and I've also had many cultural experiences both downtown and at home, with a theatre card and the cable company's generous tv package, respectively.
Although my health is still ok, there have been some minor malfunctions this year, resulting in some small operations in my mouth and my eye. But I guess that's what you must expect when you've reached the 40-year mark...
Christmas has been nice and relaxing, with some pleasant get-togethers both before and after the festival itself. I wish all of you an eventful and fruitful New Year. See you in 2009!
