I don’t have time for a proper blog post this evening, so you’ll just have to make do with a photo. Here’s what I woke up to yesterday morning:
Unfortunately, by the evening all the white stuff had gone and everything was just wet. But it was pretty while it lasted.
More snow forecast for later in the week. Maybe we’ll get some that actually decides to stay put…
Apparantly it’s snowing in the Black Forest. Actually, it’s been snowing up there for about 3 weeks, but apparantly now the snow has moved down. Presumably that means it’s not only snow at the top of the mountains now.
So did I ever mention I live near the Black Forest? Not near enough though apparantly – here it’s been raining non-stop for 2 days. The weather forecast for today is – yup, you’ve guessed it – rain. I’d almost rather have the snow, even if it is only October and therefore (in my eyes) still autumn. Snow should be reserved for winter. But then again, I think rain should be reserved for early spring (to help the new plants grow) and days when I don’t have to go to work. It’s not like the weather gods have ever listened to me though. Not even when I was very young and would say the rhyme:
Rain, rain go away,
Come again another day.
Rain, rain go to Spain,
Never, ever come again.
(The idea being that Spain was too sunny for its own good and desperately needed our rain as well as its own)
It’s probably a good job the weather gods never paid any attention. If I’d had my way the UK would be waterless and Spain constantly flooded.
One of my friend sent me a request on Facebook to take part in something called Dragon Wars. The only comment I feel I can make to that is why??? Some people clearly have too much time on their hands…
So today is not Friday. Yes, I’m sure you’re all aware of that. I just thought I’d remind myself. You see I’ve spent all day convinced that it was, then feeling incredibly disappointed whenever I remembered that I actually have one more day at work before the weekend. *Sigh*. I like my job but I could really do with a holiday. A proper one I mean. One where I actually get to relax, rather than a 3 day trip home, complete with 9 hour stay at Dublin airport and 10 billion activities to cram in to 72 hours.
So apart from not being Friday today has been a rainy day in the land of the Deutsch. In my part of the land anyway. Actually it’s been chucking it down since 11 o’clock last night, which was ok when I was indoors. Not so good when I missed the 12 minutes past 5 tram home and had to wait 10 minutes for the next one. Luckily I was catching my tram from the side of the station where the roof doesn’t leak. Unfortunately it was that type of rain that’s so slanted it’s practically horizontal, meaning I got wet anyway. So that was fun.
On a brighter (but not necessarily more sunny) note: I got an award.
Look! Isn’t it pretty!
I got it from the very lovely sleepyjane whose blog you can visit either by clicking on her name or using the link on my blogroll. Go on, go. You really should, she’s very entertaining.
And now I believe I’m supposed to pass it on to other people. Sooo…. Katyboo, Welsh Girl and Hails, this one’s for you. Go share the love.
And now I have to figure out what I’m going to make for tea tonight. Whatever it is there needs to be another to feed me and the boyfriend with some to spare for tomorrow’s lunch…
