Today a remarkable thing happened. Something we weren’t expecting to see in Sweden. Something we didn’t think happened in Sweden…

That’s right, we woke up and it was raining!!!!

No ringing today and not much of anything else either.

Måndag den 16 september 2013

For the last week the weather forecast has showed rain on Monday morning – today. This would normally be a bad thing, however this has been a summer of unusually good weather and as a result we have completely forgotten what it is like to stay in bed past sunrise. We have only missed 3 days of ringing since the beginning of July! So, when checking the forecast before going to bed, we were a little disappointed to see that all had changed, the rain would pass overnight and the morning will be fine and dry, albeit a little windy. So once again, beep-beep-beep goes the alarm this morning!
