Cornbury Festival 2013

So I got myself a free ticket to Cornbury... I say free, I actually worked rather hard for it! 

I worked on a vintage stall raising money for Helen and Douglas House. H&D provide hospice and palliative care to children and young adults, for more info visit

I worked the Friday and Saturday; I sold lots of vintage goodies, bought myself some vintage goodies and the highlight for me was seeing the Overtones and Imelda May!! 

Lots of people ask me why I don't sell vintage or do something similar for a living...I often ask myself this... Well now I have my answer... I'm too lazy! It's a lot of hard work and can be quite stressful, I like my academic, nine to five with rounders at lunchtimes!! Ill stick to the buying!! :D

Here it is in pics...

 Fridays outfit.

Vintage goodies.

Saturdays outfit.

The fabulous Imelda May!! 

And finally my best bargain... Pale blue 60s mod suit in mint condition!! 

I can't wait to wear it!! Tad hot here in the UK at the mo!!

I haven't constantly been on my new iphone...

I haven't just spent my life on Instagram and twitter! 

I've been busy with WI and we now have a knit and natter group and I've learnt to crochet!

I've also been busy gardening and on the allotment! 

And I've been busy riding Audrey to above mentioned activities! 


Sorry I've been away a while...

I am very sorry for the long absence...  I have no excuses. I got a new iPhone and have become hooked on Instagram and twitter! I've been disloyal to blogger!! 

I have now added it to my phone and intend to get back on track!! I haven't even been reading much so I look forward to that!! 

I've missed you blogosphere! I will treat you better!!

What I wore in March....

Hello Lovelies,

Wow how are we nearly half way through April already?! I have been a busy little bee.

I have two new exciting things keeping me busy... the first is Northern Soul. My friend has got me hooked on the scene and I can't get enough.

The second is the WI.

I have started up a new WI group in my area after not finding a group that suited me. We are called the Tea Birds. I am going to do a post all about them later. I am loving being part of the WI.
