It's raining again...

...and I'm not referring to Supertramp's song.

Just when I thought I could pack away my cable-knit cardigan, the thermometer drops to 16°C this I'm sitting at my desk with a stripy scarf wrapped round my neck once again.
You know, I used to like this kind of weather back in the city, because it meant I could sneak out to the corner coffee shop and indulge in a cup of piping hot coffee and a chocolate croissant without feeling guilty - because as everyone knows, you need to eat in order to keep warm, right?
I also used to love sitting by the window and watching my fellow pedestrians struggle against the wind and rain with their wonky umbrellas, while meditatively sipping my coffee.
There's not much point going outside nowadays, since 1. there's no people watching here and 2. it's just too much of a hassle to trudge along the main street that leads to the town centre for a mediocre cup of instant coffee granules!
Besides, I'm only a few steps away from our high-tech 'Dolce Gusto' by Krups taking centre stage on the kitchen counter ;-)
On a happier note - I just received a new translating assignment, which always perks me up no matter what the weather!
