The summer is almost over. Another school-year has started and kids are unhappy again. The mornings are getting darker as we move forward to winter. The weather is getting colder and gloomier.
How was the summer of 2012? Sunny, warm, happy, rainy, hot, windy…?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but here in Finland the summer was just so not great. I wouldn’t even call it a summer. I spent the whole summer waiting for it to arrive with the warmth and the sunshine it usually offers, only to get disappointed when it didn’t happen.
The whole summer was a huge fiasco with all the rain and clouds. The few (like maybe 10) sunny days we had were ruined by awful sunburn. This was supposed to be the year I started to like summer, but no, it’s still my least favorite time of year.
The few good things this summer were the summer Olympics in London, Tammerfest (although it rained) and one special weekend at a friend’s summer-house (although it rained and I got eaten by mosquitoes).
I give the summer of 2012 two thumbs up!
What did you think of the summer this year? Did you do anything fun? Leave a reply!
