A big hello and a sorry for the long absence!!!

It's been far too long since my last post, nearly a year!
My life changed a bit, and for a while the miniature hobby was something I had no time for, or wanted to think about .
My french house was nearly finished and the work remaining was the exterior.....it still remains!!!!
These days I have been spending my time in Stavanger, a town on the west coast of Norway. 
I  quitted the library job, my flat is sold and i have rented a new one in this town.
Today I got a phone call  from one of the jobs I applied for, and I made an appointment for my first job interview!!! 
In this city I have relatives, a brother and a sister, both older than me..probably wiser too!!! :)
I have miniature friends, and hopefully I will be able to blow some life into some of the activities this town once had; a miniature club! It still exist ....but I don't think or know if there is any activities these days...
It will still be some time until you will see any miniature pictures from my hand....need to move my stuff, get settled and get a job first! But I have ideas and some unfinished stuff...so, one of these days!!!
Here is a picture of the kitchen in my new flat, quite a modern looking one. I guess it will change my interior style a bit, but I am still hanging on to my old books, my french aubusson carpet and Laura Ashley lamps!!!

See u soon!!

This is the landscape of my new home, i'ts on an island, but attached with bridges to the mainland and just a 10 min drive from the big city!!
A special cold and windy day in the center of the city harbour !!

Synnove !!!!! I am so HAPPY to see you again ! you cannot imagine how many times I thought of you but I knew you were in the move and I didn't want to intrude.
But I am overjoyed to read a post from you and see that a new life is beginning.

Ohh..Rosanna, thank u...it has been some difficult months since we last talked. But I hopefully things will improve now... settling down here with family and children nearby will be so much better for me. This is a vibrant, busy town, and it has so much more to offer of everything then the deep forest of Hedmark.
A big hug for u too Rosanna :))))

The warmt of your comments here today feels very good... I think the best thing about blogging are all of u!!!!!
Kisses and hugs!!!

Flora sa...

Dear, dear Synnøve, I am also very happy to hear from you :-)
I was certain that life was truly committed to you 100% (this is always the reason, when you are forced to stay away from the blog: either lack the time or energy shortage, or lack inspiration ...).
Now I hope you will be done soon to fix your nest, so you can go back to thinking small :-)
I wish you one thousand for the job and new life (perhaps in that village were waiting for you to give new life to the mini club ...)
Of course, mini hugs,
Flora

The Old Maid sa...

Great to read you again Synnove! Welcome back:)

synnøve sa...

Dear Flora and "the old maid", how nice to see u :))
Ur perfectly right Flora, it was lack of time and energy and lack of inspiration as well....I simply lost interest!!
I know some others who have felt this too, and its often in combination with changes of ur life situation.
But I know one thing; when u first start doing this minihobby...it's impossible to quit completely!!
A big hug to both of u ;))))

Nina in Germany sa...

miniacollection sa...

I wish you to be very happy in your new home. It will be nice to be close to your relatives. I hope you will soon find a job.
You're right facebook is not the same as blogland, a different way of communication.
Hugs

synnøve sa...

Thank u Susan and Margaret :))
I think my desition to move here is a really good one!!
I have a really good feeling about this city :)..lots of nice relatives, and easy access for my children to visit ;))
I really love the look of my new flat and I wish u all would be able to come to a housewarming party!!!
I already received a call for a job interview, and today I was with my niece in a store, and one of her friends told me they had an opening for a position working weekends and evenings...and they have really nice clothes and a 55 % employee discount!! This city has no problem with unemployment, so I am not worried about work!!! Yes I will work weekends in addition to a regular job!!
I am so happy to be in the mini mood again...
And Linda..of course I remember ur b.day :) I hope u had a marvelous day ;))
