Radio Silence


The festival of all festivals!
Hey there my lovelies!  Sorry for the radio silence last week, I was in deepest Suffolk with no internet, and it was bliss! (I know as a blogger I shouldn't say that, but it was!  We all need downtime sometime, right?).

The Boy and I, and lots of lovely friends, went to the A-MAZING Latitude Festival at Henham Park, in Suffolk.  It's an amazing festival full of music, poetry, literature, art, dance and lots lots more.  Have you ever been?   

I was hoping to take lots of amazing photos of all the different elements of Latitude but got so sucked into all that was going on that I ended up only taking a few. We mostly took in bands and a bit of poetry and a few other cultural bits and pieces.  Of the bands we saw my favourites were; Cold Specks, Metronomy, First Aid Kit, Alt-J, Yeasayer, Wild Beasts, Bat for Lashes, and my all-time festival favourites, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros!

Anywho, here are a few of the photos I took.

As you can see we were incredibly lucky with the weather and spent most of the fesital in shorts and t-shirts with only a very light rain shower each day.

The Boy and I stayed on in Suffolk for the week after the festival in order to spend some time with my family, see my Nan in hospital, and visit a few of my favourite haunts in Norfolk and Suffolk.  We managed to get a good few days in, despite the onset of permanent rain, but then I came down with a stinking cold.  Booooo! A week on and I'm still poorly, hopefully I'll feel better soon.  Luckily no-one else seems to have caught it so that's good.

Did you go to Latitude this year?  I'd love to hear what your favourite bits were.

Hope you all had a lovely week. xx
