Standing on the terrace has become like looking over the bow of a ship – water, water everywhere. The sun flashes through occasionally – usually for no longer than it takes to reach the window and look for some clear sky.
On your left, Exhibit A – the weather forecast just over a week ago; and then Exhibit B - today’s forecast.
Up until a few days ago, I would have said that the best thing about the rain was that it kept my hayfever at bay. Since then, the pollen has pushed through so now the entire household is sniffling and sneezing – and for me, somewhat drowsy as that’s what hayfever does to my system. Gustav now knows that he needs to head much further south from Sweden to find spring weather this year. I just hope that it settles down before we drive Malmö-wards in three weeks.
