A Celebration Day

Today is a day for celebration.

I can fit into my jodphurs again.  I bought them in Iceland in 2012 and I have managed to wear them all day, even riding Klængur today.

You have no idea what a big deal this is.

Those jodphurs have sat in a drawer for the last four years taunting me with their non-forgiving waistband.

Since my “little episode”, my diet has changed and I have lost some weight though no one, to date, has said anything so it could well be my imagination.  My leather belt has gone in 2 notches but, again, leather can stretch.

So, in honour of this momentous day, I have trawled through the photos I took during my visit to Iceland all those years ago.

And it blows.

And this was our first meeting with Taktur – he was a 2 year old.

And Esja – she was a yearling.

Daisy and I loved Iceland.  We need to return.


I may spend this evening searching for flights.

    So frustrating – for some reason I can’t see the photographs! Any ideas why this should be, Frances; I’ve never had a problem with any of your others.

    Pleased to say I can now see them – your photographs are all good but these are stunning!! Thank you, Frances – made my day. xx

    At least something pleasant happened from your “little episode”. Hopefully all gets sorted out healthwise and you are happier for it.
    Iceland is beautiful.
