Found a few last pics of Iceland on my camera taken through the car window on our 3 hour drive to Reykjavik. Basically I am putting these up for me as I am missing the place so much! Some areas were covered by snow and others not.
Although this article is old for those of you interested it is a great read about Iceland and the initial collapse http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/economics/article5329762.ece
and these links highlight some of the issues surrounding Icesave http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/dd0831a4-fafa-11de-94d8-00144feab49a.html?nclick_check=1 and http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jan/09/icesave-iceland-britain-investors
Now for more mundane things I have been working on titivating my house to put on the market...I will continue on with that, fixing up all those things that you just put up with until you need to sell the place. This week has been scraping flaky paint off the laundry and bathroom ceiling....today I am painting them and tomorrow I paint the used to be white picket fence that has turned a nice orange bore water stain colour! Thankfully the weather has cooled down a tad to 28 today.
Lastly a couple snaps of my flowering cactus... flowers only open in the evening and are gone by daylight.
