"I can't get no satisfaction."

I certainly couldn't get very satisfactory photographs of the action on the Pyramid stage last night at Worthy Farm. It was frenetic;
the colour, the flag waving
and thousands of people all there to have a great time.
I watched it all from the comfort of the sofa in our sitting room!
And didn't the boys put on a good show!

They didn't stand still for a minute.

I did a bit of strutting around the room, just to keep Mick company.
Not half bad, for a bunch of old blokes.
Go on, shout it!

Late to the party.

For the last couple of weeks I've been late to Patti's party at Not Dead Yet Style, arriving on Monday evening to find the venue full. So here I am coming early to join in the fun wearing a linen top by Flax and a pair of old linen pants from Boden.
Just a slight jar with my favourite colour nail varnish, 'Funtime Fuschia' and a ring that I bought in Turkey - they said the stone was 'lal.' Does that translate as glass?!
I'm crumpled but happy, because the sun is shining!

Tee shirts

My usual clothes for working in the garden are tee shirt and jeans but I wore this outfit to visit friends because we were going to hear all about their recent holiday in Cuba. We had lent them guide books and been very enthusiastic about our time in Havana last December, so we were hoping that our various recommendations had been helpful.
There wasn't much for a tourist to buy in Cuba, apart from Che Guevara tee shirts!
Do you see the little star on his beret? I keep thinking that it's a bit of fluff or a crumb and try to brush it off!
Friends and family came last weekend.
Do you talk with your hands?
I'm quite a well-behaved listener
but once I start talking my hands are all over the place.
Don't ask me what I was talking about because I haven't the faintest idea!
I have several inexpensive white tees - they are good on their own and can also be jazzed up a bit with a chunky necklace.

New shoes

We've had sunshine for a WHOLE WEEK and everything in the garden is lovely. At the weekend I treated myself to a pair of summer pumps.
Pink suede to match (sort of) my trusty Boden cashmere cardi.
