'yes they did leave them' 'yes i like that one best too' 'yes they are very me aren't they!'
So not long after we'd moved in, and after we'd discovered a gas leak and had that repaired, and after we'd had the car radiator leak and also had that repaired, we went here.....
Mum ( that's me) really did go to Iceland! Sorry I felt the whole Iceland joke really needed a mention. We stayed in an apartment in Reykjavik for a week. It was spectacular! When we arrived the weather was cold and a bit rainy, rather like England, and in the course of a week we experience pretty much every weather condition you can think of ( ok not a heatwave, and no tornados, typhoons etc ) ranging for blazing sun to a blizzardy whiteout, from 5 degrees to -14 in the space of a couple of days.
We visited the Blue lagoon, and outside thermal spas, we explored the Golden circle and saw waterfalls and geysers that took my breath away. We saw sunrises and sunsets, we sketched, we wrote, we played card games, we crocheted ( well that was just me ;) ) and had a bloody marvellous time!
Apologies for the large number of showy off pics, but it really was brilliant and we might never go again, so I fully intend to make the most of the experience! A rather nice start to 2015.
