It’s getting warmer

Unfortunately Teres is still in hospital and they now suspect that she has a blood clott on one of her lungs.

At least the weather is improving and it has been only – 5 today. So I was out with Kelly.

She played in the snow

And then we sat and drank hot chocolate

We made a brief visit to Jokkmokks marknad (temperature was – 26), but there were so many people there and with a five year old to look after, I was not able to take any pictures.


I’m not the one who is sick this time.

Kelly and Teres have had influencer again (a different strain this time) and last night I had to rush Teres to accident and emergency (50kms from where we live) because she was having trouble breathing.

It turns out that she now has double pneumonia and is being kept in under observation, and is being given intravenous antibiotics.

The temperature is still between -20 and -30 degrees and we have had more snow, but only a few millimetres (still not enough to use the snowmobile).

If I am still well and Teres is out of hospital; I shall be visiting Jokkmokk’s Marknad this coming weekend and will write about my visit next week.

Another busy week

I have worked 7 days again and the family a sick, so I am looking after them which means that I haven’t had chance to get out and about.

At work I have been building small wood stores (the one on the left is completed)

which will be placed where we have fire sites along paths and snowmobile trails.

The temperatures are still between – 20 and – 35 and we have had a few millimetres of snow.

Working 7 days a week.

We have very little snow this year. Its not currently possible to use the snowmobile.

The temperature has been down to – 33 and the average for the last two weeks has been – 25.

Monday to Friday I work for the local council during weekends I am test driving cars for Nissan, so I am not getting out and about at the moment.

The days are also still short with sunrise at about 10am and sunset at 2pm.

Still not 100%

I’m still not working as I have not yet recovered from the flu but I am gradually getting better.

At least the sun is appearing above the horizon again and the days are getting longer.

I hope I will have a little more to write about next time.


The year hasn’t begun so well as we all have influenser and yesterday evening I ended up at A&E because I couldn’t breathe.

Fortunately I am much better today.

Father and mother Christmas came to visit us again on the 25th

And gave out presents to the family.

They even stayed and ate Christmas Dinner with us.

And I will just finish this post with a night shot from the front of our house.
