Thunder and lightning

Well, a few hours ago, the weather tried to break here in Zurich. From my desk and with a wonderful view of the mountain, the sequence went like this:

sky goes from blue to darker blue
sky goes dark and grey
Thunder etc
Rain starts heavily
Rain then stops
Clouds roll back off the mountain, but little whisps of clouds continue to rise up through the trees
Sky lightens
Back to hot and muggy again :-( And all within about an hour...

Come on weather, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU!! We want to cool down!

Anyway I was glad to escape the office, I've had an up and down week, but I'm hoping things will start to improve. Good points? I've been making and receiving lots more phone calls in German... this is still a bit of a challenge for me, as I struggle to catch peoples's names and then I have difficulty understanding the swiss german. It's so much harder when you can't watch somebody's face...

But hey... it's now the weekend and I'm just off to catch the train to the airport in time to get LX304 to London. hurrah! I'm staying with my best mate Sal and will spend the weekend catching up with her, shopping, meeting friends and most importantly having a meeting with the organisation that I researched for my degree. It'll be a busy weekend, but hopefully a productive one. I get back late on Sunday night.
