Dark days

The British Summer. IS. A. JOKE. I haven't seen the sun properly for three weeks, I keep warm in wooly jumpers, under blankets and by drinking copious amounts of tea. I'm knitting again as I might have to wear that scarf sooner then I thought. I watch The Moomins to cheer myself up. We've even still got our winter duvet (comforter) on the bed for chrissakes! I wish the British summer was a job so I could quit it. I'll be handing in my notice if it doesn't pick up by next week.

This flickr set makes me long for Swedish summers. They were the best.
And seeing this really rubs it in.


  1. Your photos+Sandra's photos=Really really fantastic!!!

  2. yeah the weather is horrible here..nothing like SUMMER

  3. I realte completely... Weather has been awful here too. I long for some summer sunrays, beach time and holiday vibe :)

  4. jag skickar solen till dig nu, den är ju orättvis som lämnar dig i en kall soffa! väldigt väldigt vackra bilder tycker jag. blir lite svalare av dem ;)

  5. thanks parisa :)

    yasu: I bet you can't wait to get to Paris! Although I've read some statistic that says that it rains 6% more per year in Paris than in London, but 6% isn't worth quibbling about ;)

    omg esti, you have had it much worse than we have, that is a lot of rain!!! call me weird but I would find it far more exciting if it rained that much (as long as houses don't get flooded), I'd be out there in my wellies and waterproofs... but we all love a bit of sun don't we... especially in june!

    tack sandra, det funkade, solen ar har och hanger idag yippie!!

  6. vad gör du i englandet?
