Business in Stockholm

Whatever it was that Markus got I got it too :sick: I spent pretty much all of last week curled up on the couch under a mountain of cough drops, nose drops and kleenex. I’m still not 100% well, but at least I don’t have a fever any more. Yay for that I guess *sneezes*

But I’m glad it hit me last week and not now because tomorrow I’m going to Stockholm! :rock:

A project I’ve been involved with is nominated for an award so me and my boss are going down there to attend the event. Apparently it’s a whole day of seminars and exhibitions and in the evening there will be dinner and drinks for everyone. I’m really excited! I don’t really expect us to win since the competition is stiff to say the least, but it’s cool enough to be nominated and in the final round :D Guess I’ve done something right, hehe.

I just hope my sinuses doesn’t hurt too much on the plane, I’ve heard it can be a pain to fly when you have a cold. I have some extra strong nose drops to use right before take-off though so I hope that helps.

Anyway, it’s 8 o’clock here right now and I’m gonna go pack some stuff and charge the camera battery… wish me luck tomorrow! :D

EDIT Oct 19
I’m back now and while we didn’t win our category (like I expected) we did get a honorary award! After the regular prizes had been given out we thought it was all finished but then the moderator remained on stage and said that they wanted to give a special price to a special project that the judges had found to good to let it pass by unnoticed :yay: Gotta go home now and get some sleep. But YAY!

Here are some photos from the event :)

    Aww glad that you are better. <3 And yay for Stockholm :D Been planning to go there myself in December. And since last time I was there, I didn't really have chance to shop, this time I'm totally going to shop. Only thing I don't expect is the boat trip… -_-

      I want to go to Stockholm just to shop and look around too! Hopefully I’ll be able to before the year ends… But what’s wrong with taking the boat? Is it just that it takes so long? I’m no fan of flying so I think I’d rather take a boat than a plane ^^;

        While I’m not known as person who says no to alcohol drinks, there are moments when I’m totally not into drinking and boat is one of them. Whole boat full of drunks and I just end up locking myself in the cabin with water bottles. :P

    Kul med nomineringen! Hur gick det? Var resan bra i övrigt?

      Gick jättebra (som jag skrev i uppdateringen) :D Resan var bra förutom att det var riktigt pissväder i Stockholm. Och att planet hem gick kl 8 på morgonen, vilket var lagom kul när man varit ute sent och firat kvällen innan… :P

      We had made some materials for a local publishing house :) Had a great time in Stockholm (apart from the really bad weather).
