Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Well here we are- about to board my flight on my final morning in Iceland- the end of chapter one. I have been lucky enough to spend the weekend in my new home in Reykjavik. I have had some time getting to know my new housemates and discovered a mutual… Read More TTFN Iceland!
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Before my move to Hrísey, I made a quick road trip with Cara; this included a couple of pool visits, an overnight stop in Akureyri and a visit to the folk museum. The folk museum was somewhere, like the Library of Water, that had been on the list and I… Read More An island off Iceland: Hrísey in June.
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, Two blogs in one day- what on earth is going on you may ask?! It’s amazing what I can do when I put my mind to it. And when I am procrastinating with my packing! Here we go again… May was a strange disjointed month booked ended by trips to… Read More Comings, goings and absolute MAY-hem
Poppets, lovelies and dear ones, I have been sitting on this blog post for rather a long time. I am unbelievably behind and have had a few photographic issues, but here, on my last full day in Iceland, is the next April instalment. In order to catch up a little faster, I have kept to… Read More Applications, amazing friends and an unexpected rap battle. Belated, April adventures continued..
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..
