Hope everyone has an enjoyable Christmas……we certainly did.
It is one year since I slipped a disc in my again, and at the time I thought I would not be able to get out and about in the forest during winter again, but that is fortunately not the case.
I do not feel secure enough on skis, so I am now using snow-shoes.
I have only been on a couple of short walks around where we live, but I have already discovered some old buildings that I did not know existed (I wonder who used to live there?).
As of the 31st December I am unemployed again, as my three month job as project leader has finished. I have applied for several jobs, but have been unsuccessful. Everyone one wants you to have qualifications, and because I chose to leave school at sixteen and begin work in the field of nature conservation, I do not have a degree or such.
I am considering starting up my business again and running 5 day wilderness courses at my cabin, so that people can have the same experience as I had when I first came to Lapland.
