Birthday!

It’s my birthday today, would you believe it! I’m going home today, so there will be no birthday photo today, this family photo will have to do.

I took it for the family reunion last weekend. I thought it was compulsory, but nobody else did this so perhaps I misunderstood something.

But I’m glad I did. Because now we have a recent family photo, although the young lady is not on it.
We have decided to take photos like this regularly from now on (I can’t understand why I haven’t done this before), the next on is due when my son leaves for boarding school in the fall.

Ég á afmæli í dag og ég er enn á ferðalagi, eins og svo oft áður á þessum degi.

Þess vegna kemur þessi fjölskyldumynd í staðin fyrir afmælismynd í ár.

Ég tók hana fyrir ættarmótið síðustu helgi. Ég hélt að það væri skylda og hafði töluvert fyrir því að koma familíunni saman, en svo var enginn annar með svona mynd, svo ég misskildi sennileg eitthvað.

En ég er bara ánægð með það. Við erum nefnilega búin að ákveða að taka svona myndir reglulega (ég skil reyndar ekki hversvegna ég hef ekki gert það fyrr). Sú næsta verðu tekin áður en drengurinn fer í heimavistarskólann í haust.
