4 years ago today I met Henrik. That man is the best thing that ever happened to me. Henrik is a saint. He puts up with all my crap (including much moaning about his country!) and always remains jolly and positive. I am very lucky. After school today we went for a walk to check on the progress of the melting ice/snow, and I am pleased to report that I believe spring has arrived. Finally! We went out without coats and it was 14c, the sun was shining and the birds were singing .We were almost buried by an avalanche of snow sliding from our neighbours roof but we lived to tell the tale and are now about to enjoy a nice juicy steak. Yum.
