I keep reading on Swedish blogs that summer is over, that it is “late summer” (sensommar) and people feel that autumn has started!? I am sorry, but NO!!! Summer is definitely NOT over yet! I understand that for Swedes who holiday in June-July, and for whom the schools start this week or next, it might feel like summer is over, but I beg to differ. First of all, because V and I and my sister have holidays, and second of all: it is going to be 28 degrees on Sunday!
V and I arrived last Friday to Copenhagen airport and took the train to Lund where we stayed with my sister. She made a bed for V in her Ikea foot stool but in the end he slept in the bed with me (and she on the sofa)
On Saturday my friend L who lives in the south of France and who just happened to be back in Sweden right now as well came to my parents’ place with her 2-year old daughter and French boyfriend. It’s difficult to get a 1-year old and a 2-year old to look in the camera at the same time! (not to mention their mothers!)
And once again I protested when my father told me of his plans to cut down the old plum tree, and once again he got annoyed with me! Yes, I can see that the trunk is almost hollow, that parts of the tree are not very healthy and it doesn’t give fruit but it is not dead yet and I think that old trees are beautiful… but ok, it is his (and my mother’s) tree!
