Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, So despite having written up the rest of April, I haven’t sorted photos…fear not- everything else from May is safely in my journal so the catch ups will come- from Hrísey! But as I find myself on the last day of my residency in the east reflecting on my time… Read More 4 months on…
Poppets, lovlies and dear ones, I apologise for my absence on the blogosphere. I hope you haven’t missed my weekly updates too much- I truly have missed writing them. After a months hiatus how do I begin to round up the last 6 weeks?! An intense period of work and deadlines, book ended by trips to… Read More Big news from a little fjord, and April adventures, Part 1
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, So my blog is having to take a little bit of a backseat at the moment, with good reason. It’s been a really busy time, but I will get back on track once I can. I’ve had to switch my focus souly on to art (after all, the reason I… Read More Easter greetings from the fjord!
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Here I was thinking the last week of March was a complete wash out. I was completely without voice for two days (which anyone who’s ever met me will know was complete torture! You think I write a lot- it’s nothing compared to the amount I talk!), so sensibly rested… Read More 2 months in and nothing to write home about?! No chance!
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, A short blog today (and yes I genuinely mean it this week. Under 500 words- it’s a miracle!), as I’ve been struck down with the plague so am confined to isolation and bed rest- but I still wanted to get something on here and share some thoughts. Thank goodness for… Read More A cautionary tale about caring for your Icelandic sweater
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Given the extra blogs, and much needed post-adventure down time, I don’t have a massive amount to report (by my standards!) on the last few days. However, I did want to get back to my regular Sunday spot. So here’s a brief round up, complete with two pudding based anecdotes-… Read More Sometimes, there is just the need for emergency custard in a foreign land..
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, I have returned from my weekend of adventuring and have just about come back down to earth. We covered many miles- practically the whole north east of the island- and saw more than I could have imagined in such a short space of time. I can’t quite believe it now… Read More Nine go north- a mini adventure. Akureyri- Raufarhöfn- Seyðisfjörður (and all that’s inbetween!)
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, As I am going away for the weekend I thought I would post a little early (especially as I seem to have so many photos this week!), and then of course you’ll get an EXTRA blog shaped treat early next week once I return from my adventure- you lucky people!… Read More Cheeky bonus blog: Stony faces and treats for the eye-tummies!
Poppets, lovlies and dear ones, Here’s your Sunday Icelandic fix from my strange little fjord. A new month- how did my first residency changeover happen so fast?! A week of farewells to my unconventional and wonderful February family and new friends to find as March marches on and I continue my adventure. After a Sunday evening… Read More Farewell to February; crumpets, and a horse-meat lasagne
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Here’s hoping you are suitably full of Sunday lunch, and in need of a little end of week entertainment. Coming to the end of my first month and ending with a bit of a bang. And just when you thought you were due a quieter week of news from Iceland…!… Read More “You can’t see the northern lights through a window!” and other stories
