Huray for Norway and Azerbadjan!



Well, it didn´t go especially good for the swedish song Yesterday. 21 of 25 songs. Norway won and no country has ever gotten so many points before( It´s a great song written and performed by a very talented Young norwegian. After he won the norwegen final he was attacked by nazists screaming he was the worst thing that ever happened to the norwegian song contest. You see he is born in Belarus and fled from there when he was five years old. So I wonder what the nazis thinking now :-) :-) ) Iceland, that came second didn´t even get half the amount of points. But we are happy anyway, because we came third too. How You wonder? Well the song from Azerbadjan were written and performed by sweeds :-) Well we musn´t forget AySel that sang the song too, she´s from Azerbadjan and one of the most beautiful women I´ve ever seen!


The Swallows has finally arrived at work. They nest on the beam under the big roof we have outside the factory. Love them but they are messy birds. Their droppings falls on everything we have outside. But they are protected all over Europe so we can´t do anything about them. But to be honest, we would miss them if they weren´t there every year!



Today I was alone at work and when I stood there and painted I realised that we didn´t have enough paint. So I got a chance to phone the owner after all :-) Personally I think that someone should check these things before the weekend so they can get more paint before it´s to late.
The weather has been teriffic all day. Sunny and warm. The clouds came almost as soon I got home like it did yesterday, but it´s warm so I´m not complaining.



The beams and the roof makes perfect nestingplaces for them. Now I´m only waiting for "my" couple that builds a nest just above my window on the upper floor.


The sock mystrie is solved! I have wondered whay all my books on the bottom shelf in my bookcase always is scattered on the floor. It seemes that someone (probably a ginger coloured cat in this hose) uses the place behind the books as a sort of treasure box :-) So now all my sock are back again :-)
Have a great day now!

Sorry about the song Christer, I'll have to google the winner and see if I like that one too. So the cat hid the socks all the time. Better get the cat Temptations. Those cat treats work wonders over here with my two Himmies. But I'll have to say, cats have a devilish personality so don't be surprised if they fool you again. Lovely vid of your countryside. Have a good day now.

Så det var katten som var skyldig..
Fin liten video du gjort, förstår om du hellre sitter o luktar på blommorna än riskerar få svalbajs i huvet ;-) Men jag såg att de kommit till Västerplana också...
Första sommarn jag bodde här var det fem som flög fel.... hade ett himla sjå o få ut dem igen :-)
Ha´t himla gôtt....

I made two comments...the first on the song...in which I said "We heard that Norway won the contest" and I also said you were most gracious to say you were happy for them! That is what I said...and it up and disappeared!! Anyway...there you have it...see you tomorrow!

Jasså var det Norge som vann, själv slocknade jag efter själva sånggenomgången och sen har det varit fullt upp med annat så det där hade jag missat totalt. Vad bra då behöver jag inte offra tid på att leta resultat nu när det är fullt upp med ogräsrensning ;)

Hi Z&M!Teodor and his brother is almost always outside, they only come in to sleep. So I can´t for my life figure out why he wants those socks :-) But ginger cats are a bit peculiar to be honest. He drules a lot to and likes to smear it out in my face too :-) :-)
have a great day now!
Christer.

Hej Nina!
ja den orange har sina idéer, dregalr dessutom rätt kraftigt :-) Gillar att smeta ut dreglet i ansiktet på mig när han får en chans dessutom :-) :-)

Ingen svala har någonsin flugit in här i stugan, men på jobbet händer det att de tar sig en tur eller två inne i fabriken :-)
Ha det gott nu!

Hi Mona!
So the cyberspace ate Your comment again! I hate when that happens. Nowdays I write my comments on a word dokument before trying in a blog. I´m never able to write the same thing twice :-)

I´m really happy for Norway, it´s a really good song and he sings it perfect. A funny thing with these songcontest songs is that we never hear that kind of music the rest of the year. They are only three minutes long so it´s difficult to do them any different than they are.

It will be a very short video if I should film only my kitchen stairs. The stairs are very small :-) But I´ll show it in my next video if I remember too. My memorie plays me tricks from time to time :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Tjänare Maria!
Såg också bara sångerna, sedan var det dags att sova eftersom jag skulle jobba dagen därpå. Men de sade det på radion redan när jag vaknade på morgonen :-)
Ha det gott nu!

Hi Woody!
Cat burglers are the worst! and in the family too :-) :-)

I love the swallows and as You say, they take a lot of bugs and they fertilize my flowerbed below :-)

Your right, they mess it up a lot in the paint shop! But it sort of is the same all over the factory. They lack the gift of planning ahead more than five minutes it seemes :-) I can´t figure out how this place still survives in the crises we have now!
have a great day now!
Christer.

Tjänare Anja!
Det var så skönt ute att jag gärna stannat hemma och tagit en långpromenad med hundarna. Kanske hade vi haft turen att få skrämma upp ett par tranor eller så :-) :-)
Ha det riktigt gott nu!
Christer.
