Work is crazy busy, and I've got choir tonight, Social Circle tomorrow, and dinner guests on Friday... yow. Guess the family website updates won't be finished this week either.
I detect a lightening in the sky, which makes me happy as this morning's drive through yet another dark drizzly grey grey grey rainy WET landscape was just a drag. The little river that bisects Flyinge has completely overflown its banks and there is standing water everywhere. My fingers and toes are wrinkled in sympathy.
I was realizing last night that before I moved to Sweden, and only just in the past few years, have I gotten to know several Australians and become friends with a few of them. I never gave much thought to Australia before and never met an Australian that I can remember before the friends I've met in the AWC and here on LJ. One of my best friends and her husband moved to Sydney 3 years ago, amid much lamentation on the parts of their friends and family ("It's so far away!"), and I've wanted to go ever since. It just sounds like such a wonderful place, and produces such interesting and fun people. And no, I'm not sucking up to ozswede and courtesy. I mean it. The 23-hour flight isn't so appealing, but I suspect it would be more than worth it. Hopefully, someday I'll get my wish to go down under.
