Good weather

Finally we have some good weather.  To celebrate we are spending the day at Inga and Robert's place.

Away at work

I bought the kids a used desktop to help them with editing videos. Seems only right that we help them do stuff they are good at.
That being said, Kasper gave me his old laptop. It is useful to me since mine was dropped on the floor and really is useless now. This laptop is only slightly more useful. While I can read the screen it is important to not try to have to many windows open at once, or the thing crashes. Anymore then 2 windows being at least 1 too many.
So I brought my new laptop to work today. Even a beasty old slow laptop that must be plugged in at all times, seems to have a hole where the disk drive was and does not have wifi (just have to plug it into the internet) is easier to write on then my phone.
I mean I love my phone but typing emails on it is seriously annoying.
Davíð left this morning for some work thing in England. I don't know how I feel about this. Part of me is a little sad because I miss the guy, we have been working opposite shifts a lot these days and have only been able to say a quick +hi+ and +bye+ to each other. The other part of me is crazy jealous that he is going to be in a hotel room with a bathtub. I miss bathtubs. So much. It is probably just as well no one sends me on a work trip that I have to stay in a hotel with a bathtub. I wouldn't get any work done and would probably return home looking like a raisin.
Other news:

  • As we speak, Cassie is on her way home from Australia
  • I actually have a day off work tomorrow
  • Stefán returned from his first big scouts jamboree a very happy kid
  • Kasper is looking forward to spending the next long weekend with his girlfriend, her parents rented an apartment in the city and he is invited to stay with them
  • Leópold and his friend Guðmunder have a playdate tomorrow. They are going to Leópolds Amma's house in the country
  • We found Robert's birthday present. Sure it is a couple of weeks early but we are bringing it out to him in the morning. That's right, we got him a kitten, but don't tell him yet. 

Intense interest

These were some seriously hungery for bread horses.  I guess the gluten free diet of grass just wasn't leaving them with that satisfied feeling of a good sandwich. Luckily we arrived to save the day with a loaf of bread.

I am finally enjoying some good weather in Iceland.  No wind. No rain.  Just sun and warmth. But as I look at the grass I am sitting on I realize this lawn seems to grow everything but grass.

Insurance against trolls.

Sjóva, the insurance company we are with, seems to be offering coverage for damage done by trolls. I think I am going to have to read over our policy again.

Free range chickens

As they should be - see? No fence! It always makes smile to see the chickens roaming around free at Vidiholl. Leopold loves finding the chicken poo and accidentally stepping in it. I do not, for one minute, believe it is an accident.

Playground trip

I took the boys to a playschool playground today. The main goal being to use up some of leópold's extra energy and getting Stefán out of his room. Looks like a success.

Broken David

Crazy about this guy.  Also feel bad for him today. Allergies :(

Afternoon coffee

Atp tent party

While I am still at work I look forward to going home. We are hosting a bunch of people over the all tomorrow's partys music festival. Its going to be so much fun. Among our guests is a guy from Edmonton.  The same age as us even. We dont know him but it sure is a small world. Another guest is named James Robertsson.  Seriously.  My husband's name is David James Robertsson.  Well I thought it was funny.

I finally added the blogger app to my phone.  You see, my husband dropped my laptop on the floor last month. This has seriously cut back my time online. Possibly for the best. But I have a lot of down time at work and now I feel I can start putting it to use.
