I looked at the calendar today and realised that, in four weeks time, I would have been in Sweden for one year. I don’t know where the time has gone as the old saying goes ” Time flies when you’re having fun”.
When I arrived in 2010 the temperature was already cold, and I thought back to my first visit to where I live now and I remember September to be, like it is now, very sunny.
Last winter was unusually cold, even by Sweden standards people say that it was a particularly cold winter. I was not expecting too much in the way of summer, but I saw a different side of Sweden. People seemed in a happy mood, it seemed everyone was having fun.
I think that Sweden is much like the UK where four seasons have merged into three. I can’t remember the last time that the UK had a decent summer, and this summer was the coldest on record since 1992. I didn’t find the winter too cold, maybe that’s because I have had some tough cold winters in my life. What did surprise me was that the snow was always gentle, and it snowed for months!
So I look outside the window I see the leaves are changing into autumn colours. It is like a sea of green has been burnt, the leaves have been scorched into a rainbow of burgundy, red, and purple.
The cold winter of last year has been predicted again for 2011, and I hope that in the next eight weeks, I get to see the autumn site Sweden. I hear it’s the most beautiful season for scenery.
Finally, I apologise for being a bit lax in updating this blog but there are many things going on in my life right now that keeping me extremely busy. I have a new book being published in October and I am extremely busy writing a script. However, many people have emailed me saying how much they liked this blog and how much it has helped them with thinking about moving to Sweden.
I am not going to say that he’s been an easy ride because it hasn’t. It has been one ups and downs, but one thing I can say is that it will be a journey that will go on and it is a journey that will be documented fully.
So thank you for reading so far and I hope that this blog has helped some people make a decision about moving to Sweden, if not then I think you enjoy reading!
