Another short visit...
Hello friends! It good to see that many people keep coming back to this site every day - I already feel like I know many of you! It's also nice to see people posting comments for the first time... I myself feel I'm getting addicted to this blog (even though I have never done any blogging before), thinking about what I'm going to write all throughout the day.
Today's post will again have to be rather short, out of necessity: I've just got back home (it's 1 a.m. here), and tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. I have an appointment with the dentist. I shied away from going to the dentist for seven years, but when I finally forced myself to go (some 4 months ago), it turned out that it's not so scary at all; however, since then I've had to make regular visits every week, and tomorrow's appointment is a part of that routine. Hope it'll go smoothly...
Many of you asked me about the weather in Poland. We are now into the last month of calendar spring, and there can be no complaining about the spring this year: it's been very warm and sunny, with temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius. The last seven days were particularly beautiful - temperatures around 26-27 and not a single cloud in the sky. To me, this part of the year is the most exciting: everything grows so fast like it's gone mad, birds come back for the summer, and the weather is usually pleasantly warm but not too hot: just perfect for any outdoor activity, like cycling, rollerskating, and so on.
Other seasons in Poland can be nice, but they not always are. Everybody wants the summer to be hot and sunny, which would allow one to spend the summer holiday - main holiday of the year - at the seaside. And if we are lucky, we get two sunny months with temperatures around 30 degrees. Last summer, we had a couple of days with about 40 degrees! That was unusual, and possibly a result of the global warming as well...
Autumns can be pleasant and colourful, with trees turning from green to yellow to red - what we call "golden Polish autumn" - but once all the leaves have fallen and the weather gets chilly and damp, we're into 2 or even 3 months of depressing grey late autumn/early winter. Most people hate that time of the year!
Winters used to be really cold and snowy, with temperatures normally below zero, but often reaching minus 20 or even 30, recently however we've had some winters with almost no snow at all! Must be to do with the global warming again.
Wow, Sophie posted her blog while I'm writing this, and she has replied to all her comments... I will soon do the same, I hope! Good she hasn't given me any homework, I can go to bed now :)
I am a night owl much more than a morning person, as you must have realised by now, but I'll need to get some sleep anyway... I'll be back soon, though!
