Soooo sorry for the long absence from the blogger world. I've been very very bad about not only writing a blog post but reading others *hangs head in shame*.
But I hope to change this. I need better internet at home otherwise I have to bring my laptop to work and it do it after working hours.
Anyway :) I moved into a house with 2 friends, Melanie who is originally from Germany, and Riku who is originally from Finland. The house is in Skollenborg about 15 min from Kongsberg where I work. It is on a farm (no farm animals darn lol). Nice and quiet out in the country. Lots of farm land around with a population of around 300 or soo lol. Kongsberg is huge compared to Skollenborg lol.
I decided that my room needed to be repainted!! Yeah my eyes got kinda cross-eyed too. This is a nice sized room but with 2 bloody mary reds on the walls it made the room very dark and blah lol.
Can't tell by that is a small wood burning heating oven :)
I have a whole wall of closet space woot :)
Those curtains have come down but not mine up yet :)
I decided this light purple would look better on those walls against the wood walls and floors.
And like this:
And viewed from doorway:
Hopefully my curtains will go up today :)
This is our sorta garage lol. My car actually is too long to fit in lol. But that is ok lol.
My new car being worked on :)
My new car 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-180 stationwagon. It needs some work lol.
Getting new back brakes.
Riku my handy dandy mechanic and one of my housemates :)
Trying to derust this poor tire.
Everything is rusted. Looking forward to new shiny brakes :)
Riku had a hard time getting everything taken apart due to all the rust.
Now broken down until several parts.
This is what the brake pad looked like lol.
This is a brand new one. LOL quite a difference :)
Ohhh look at the shiny :) (see 4 pics up lol)
Being put back together :)
I did learn a lot watching Riku put taking apart and putting the brakes back together :)
See all better again :) See it is still shiny. Wonder how long that lasts lol.
The front brakes need to be changed too. They weren't as far gone. So should be easier to work on. Already the bulbs have been changed. Some other stuff needs to be done including washing and vaccum cleaning. Well considering how much rain is involved you would think it would be totally clean lol.
I want to take pics of the house and area close by, including the river and the beach we have (which is under water at this point lol).
Hope you enjoyed pics. Will post again soon :)
