We saw the northern lights!
They didn't show up well on photos - it's weird because they look so clear and glowy and luminous in real life. I guess there's really not much light involved, it only looks bright next to the black of the sky.
We drove to Akureyri today, it was fun and productive - we got some batteries for Amma, printed some photos and found the mysterious 'horse and man cream' that Ross' dad got while he was over here in summer... It felt like a treasure hunt! Unfortunately Vicki's computer wasn't fixable in one afternoon, so she'll have to reboot it when she gets home - can't win them all.

I managed to avoid eating the worst foods by hanging out upstairs with my little cousins - pretty awesome kids.
I can remember when I was younger, I had a total fascination with the loft at Amma's house, and the trapdoor and the dangerous stairs... I guess it's universal, because I spent the evening trying to keep them from overbalancing through the trapdoor onto their horrified parents' heads. Finnur was scary, he kept trying to squirm away from Ross - not realising that Ross was the only thing holding him up. Good times.
Anyway, we've had some lovely family times, nearly time to go home!
