After the day where they said we had only two proper days of summer (about 2 weeks ago now), we did have a few really lovely days. Not that it did me much good, since I had to work long shifts on those days. Last Friday however, that all changed.
For a start I didn't have to work and instead went to town with my friend and Mouse. We saw the swords, we went shopping, we had a great time. By the end of the day though, the clouds had rolled in and the first drops started to fall.
They haven't stopped since!
Heavy rain, some sunshine and more heavy rain. This morning I was caught in a rain/hail shower as I was getting from the bus to the canteen. Running did not help much, nor did the temperature. I was cold when I got back on the bus an hour later and actually had to turn the heating up.
Since I haven't got much inspiration to make this a better post than is, I thought I would take some random photos to go with the non-story. Both photos are taken from my living room. The first shows the lights of the stadium (the big light is reflection of one of my lamps). Our local football club may be out of any international league (lost to some Polish club), but a nearby football club is doing just fine thank you very much. And tonight they are playing Barcelona! Not too shabby. See, women do tend to do better (it's the ladies from Avaldsnes against the ladies of Barcelona in the Champions League)!!
The second photo is of something I have shown before. It's the oil platform and I said at the time I could see it from my living room. Here's the proof!
