day three*

15 Aug


*posted a couple of days late due to spending the weekend in oxfordshire at the wilderness festival, where there was absolutely no internet connection (which was awesome!).

1. james’s mum’s “wellies”

i was hesitant to accept at first, mainly because she’d already let us borrow her car, tent, sleeping bags, towels and pillows and also because i apparently forgot that i was in england and therefore, it was going to rain.  which, of course, it did. all night. and when i had to go pee in the middle of the night, i was especially grateful for the rain boots.

2. john-paul flintoff

 he was one of the speakers who i watched today and he wrote a book called “sew your own” and taught us how to sew our own books. which i did, as you can see (from an old selfridges bag). i’m looking forward to perfecting it and i’d also really like to learn how to sew in general. so, a book and a goal! wowza.

3. my new hat

this hat was sooooooo warm and it totally changed my experience of the festival. obviously i was pretty cold, as i usually am. i think this hat will totally change my experience of england, germany and winter in general. i’ve heard it snows here.
