Well that taught me a lesson.
It’s been four weeks today since I moved to Sweden and when I was back in London and I had a wonderful method of sorting out all of my items. The list was simple
Now my winter choice were the clothes I have been wearing for the past two weeks, I was stupid enough to think that these winter clothes would suffice during a Swedish winter, oh how wrong was I?
The past few days has seen more snowfall than the entire winter in the UK for several years. I am lucky enough to have a pair of waterproof boots with me but my real winter boots are still at home, along with my winter jackets, my thick jumpers and anything else that I did not have the foresight to bring with me. What was I thinking?
Swedish winters are harsh, I’ve been through two before but never for a sustainable period of time, I was going to bring over three 30kg boxes of clothes and then have a sort out but I think I am just going to have one box shipped over now and immediately have all of my winter clothing in their! If I were to purchase what I left behind in the UK I would be looking at around a 6000 SKR H&M Bill this weekend, so it will cost around £80 for a 30kg box (anyone looking at moving stuff over I researched around 20 companies and found a great one to use, pm me or leave a comment for details)
So this is autumn or Fall if you’re from the States, its -8 and it’s snowing. Will be really interesting to see what winter has in stall for me!
