It seems a long time ago we heralded the coming of spring but since then the weather has been anything but spring-like with days of rain and cloud reminiscent of how it is in the UK all year round.
Today though is 20C and sunshine and everyone is hoping it’s going to stay that way. Good for us because we’ve got friends + kids coming round in about an hour and the adults can make the most of the terrace for drinkies whilst the kids join Zosia on the trampoline.
It’s not just Warsaw that has tardy good weather. I’ve been in Berlin and Stockholm this week and they have exactly the same complaint.
We’re off to the UK next week to see the family. First time in the UK for about 18 months. Aside from family and friends, it’s good to go from time to time to shop for things we can’t get here in Warsaw. The shopping lists are often quite weird. Here is how the current one is shaping up:
- Sudafed kids – Boots
- Folding glasses – Boots
- Watch (Swiss railway) – John Lewis
- Gravy granules – Tesco
- Post my driving license
- Dress shop – Nottingham
- Outlet store?
- Gap jeans – Nottingham
- “In Treatment” DVD
- English books for Zosia
