So, I'm back from Latitude (well, I was back yesterday, but battling my mother's computer to blog wasn't a top priority). I think it rained more in Suffolk than most other parts of the country, apart from Friday when we had glorious sunshine. We had fun. We drank a lot of wine, and Pimms. And saw lots of bands, and poetry and comedy. Highlights include the Friday night in the Cabaret tent where they put on a 1961 themed night, dressing the tent as the Razzle nightclub- we were taught the jive and the twist, watched The Two Wrongies (very wrong), and had a good laugh. Also, the live episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks was rather funny too.
Best bands: Echo and the Bunnymen, Foals (though was nearly crushed in the mad tweenage crowd), Suede, Chapel Club.
Celebs spotted: Two- Alexa Chung (exchanged a knowing smile with her), and in D's words "the blonde sister from Lark Rise" (Pearl and Ruby Pratt they're called in the series).
Number of people seen faint: Two.
Happy News: My mum went for a scan last week to see how the chemo was working and apparently it is, and there "no sign of active disease" anymore. So hurrah!
Here is an outfit that is all entirely new, I don't have this happen often, but I was lucky enough to receive some gift cards from my birthday for New Look and UO. (My mum took the photos, cue "smile and look into the camera Rachel!!")
(please excuse weird colour toes, and all different shaped photos)
Also the lovely Brittney from Flow Disruption tagged me with the "Lovely Blog Award" and I have seven facts to reveal. This is just off the top of my head so it's rather random.
1. I have a teddy bear called Rancid (..) and have had since around November 1986. He got his name because I vomited on him, apparently. He's gotten smaller and more threadbare (or threadbear (sorry)) over the years, and now lives with my mum (well, on her bed).
2. I was once invited to attend an "Entente Cordial" event (celebrating 100 years of Franco-British agreements) in Paris in 2004, as part of a group of seven from my school. I went to the Elysee Palace and Matignon, and was in the same room as Tony Blair (blah), and Jacques Chirac, then President. Woo!
3. I have a scar on my left thumb with seven stitches, from when I picked up a piece of broken glass in the sink (youch). This happenend on the 31st of July 2000.
4. I seem to be able to remember random dates and things even ages after the event, so I'm often saying things like "no, no, it *was* in 2003" (hence the above).
5. Please don't ever feed me celery, because I will not, ever, eat it. Yuck.
6. I communicate with my cat by meows, he's very talkative
7. Sorry I can't think of a seven right now (cop out, I know).
I tag anyone who cares to reveal seven facts :)
