New Years Eve

This year we had yet another fantastic New Years Eve, this time at home. Berglind had been afraid that the night would be completely different than in Iceland, that she would miss “Áramótaskaupið” the Icelandic Annual New Years Comedy Show and it would not be any fun.

Day out in London

Christmas Grocery Shopping

Christmas Shopping

We got our food delivery today and it was a hell of a lot of food, candy, wine and everything in between.  I have never seen as many bags in one go EVER, but I am happy everything was delivered, not everyone was so fortunate with their food deliveries this Christmas …

Charlotte is off work until new year, but she had to have a peek at yesterday’s sales at GAME.  I wonder whether she is smiling because the Christmas sales are good or because she is happy to be off work …. hmmmm
