Here and there a patch of snow...

Yay! We're in Iceland again! And oh my gosh it is cold!



And the last few days have been all about snow! Monday we played a show at Koko with The Temper Trap, but as you may have heard, the weather got crazy in London that night! It took us an hour and a half to get from Walthamstow to Camden (you could probably walk quicker, as long as you weren't trying to lug a keyboard and bass amp). It was quite scary on the roads, no one had proper tyres or dare I say it, driving skills? We saw quite a few red buses parked on the sides of the road, and a huge bendy bus parked across two out of three lanes of traffic.  Annoying!

Ross and I were a bit unexcited about the show, as we had to fly out early the next morning, but once we got there, it was awesome! The venue was beautiful, the sound was great and The Temper Trap guys are really really nice - they're doing amazingly well for themselves at the moment, and they really deserve it. Instead of heading home early as planned, we stuck around and watched them play, and it was great fun. A night well spent.



So yesterday morning we woke up after very little sleep (in Vicki's case - none!) and had to get to Gatwick. We left early just in case there were any public transport issues, but luckily it was all good. Our flight was delayed by about an hour, but heaps of flights were cancelled, so we pretty much won! It took us all day and some buses and some friendly relatives and a ride in a tiny tiny plane, and then we were finally in Sauðárkrókur!



It is lovely as always to be back - there's some gorgeous fluffy snow on the ground and Christmas lights everywhere!  We went up to the graveyard today, we're visiting some family tonight to try some stinky fish, and Amma and Sigga have been making us feel right at home...




Life is good.
