Finally things starts to settle down and I can finally start to do some coding again.

I have now successfully moved to Malmö (bringing all my stuff), gotten the most necessary things in order, started to find my way around in this town (still gets lost quite often though) and most importantly gotten my girlfriend Mia and all her things down here.

Getting Mia down here was quite some trouble. It took 5 days, including over 20 hours of driving, two ferry trips of one night each, packing and depacking everything and hoping that the very used car-trailer I had rented wouldn't break down and that none of her 7 birds would get into panic and kill itself during the travels. That was also preceeded by a lot of paperwork, mostly for Mia but also some for me.

We still have a lot to do since the appartment still is a big mess with boxes and furniture everywhere, but we're getting there quite quickly now and I feel that we both start to feel more relaxed.

Mia was worried that her birds would be nervous and feel bad about the place for the first few weeks, but surprisingly they felt at home right away and were singing happily after just a few hours. That's a good sign if any! :)

On the downside I lost quite a lot of e-mails about two weeks ago, including some important letters and bladeenc patches. I'll write about it on the BladeEnc page later and hope that they will be resent to me.
