8th July 2013
Is it really already July? I have spent the last couple of weeks preparing for, dancing at, and recovering from what has been billed as ‘The Best Glastonbury Ever’.
Being a first timer, I obviously agree with this, and plan on returning next year (if at all possible) to see if it can be beaten.
However, I have realised that as a new blogger, I have been dreadfully lacking on the organisation front. I did not prepare any blogs before I went away, and I have been lucky enough to be doing lots of nice things. I am therefore very behind (cross voice) and my camera and phone are full of photos that I want to share.
While I get ready to fill everyone in on what I’ve been up to (and mainly what I’ve been eating), I thought I would post a little collection of my favourites bits and bobs from the last year. I only started writing this blog in April, and it does seem a shame for anything pre-dating it to be lost to the iPhone archive.
I hope you enjoy them! (And I promise some high quality ‘food porn’ photographs are coming up very soon!)
