It has been very hard to write my traditional Christmas letter this year. The year started well but when my fiancée decided to leave me in the autumn, the world came to an abrupt end. I have been quite depressed. I have move to an apartment in Stenungsund, close to where my son Martin lives with my ex-wife.

In January I started to sing in the choir in the Lundby congregation in Gothenburg. The Lundbykören is well-known and has a good quality. The music you might hear (it takes some time to load) is a live recording of Advent by Otto Olsson, from the Advent Concerto in the fully crowded Lundby Church.

In the autumn I joined another choir in Lysekil, some 130 km north of Gothenburg. We performed the Christmas Oratorio part I-IV by Bach just before Christmas. You might spot my in the picture below.

Helen has move to Lund in the south of Sweden and studies at the technical university to become a mechanical engineer with industrial design as her main topic. She is doing very well. She is very active playing in the Bleckhornen Orchestra and is member of a choir.

Martin has started his first year in the high school in Stenungsund studying the natural sciences. He is active playing badminton. He is very good at his PC making fantastic 3D game worlds in Unreal Tournament. He has even been offered a job in the US to do programming. They did not realise Martins age.

The job at ÅF-Energi & Miljö has been quite slow. But the jobs I have had have been very interesting.

During 2003 I have had the pleasure of working with new and old clients:
AGA-Linde Gas, Stenungsund
Preem Refinery, Gothenburg
Ferring AB, Malmö

My golfing has not been so intense as usual, living in Gothenburg and the course in Stenungsund some 45 km away.

On Christmas eve I am invited to spend the evening with Martin, Helen and Anna-Lena. I am really looking forward to this.

I wish you and your nearest a Merry Christmas
A Happy New Year.
