stimpfield 08

So, I've finally got round to posting about stimpfield:
a home-grown, back-yard, lo-fi, d-i-y, festival dreamed up by louise and me.

It was such a fun day, and well worth the endless planning. The invitations were tickets, and guests were instructed to bring themselves, their tents, their wellies and a musical instrument of their choice, along with an mp3 player for the silent disco.

Each guest recieved a lanyard with a detailed site map on the back, incase they managed to lose themselves in the garden!
There were games of cricket, pass the parcel (the prize being original stimpfield merchandise), inflatable bowling and sack racing accompanied by giant bubbles, face painting and silly amounts of glow sticks.

much fun indeedio!

Roll on stimpfield 09!

My boyfriend and i spent last week up in north yorkshire with the cows and the sheep, which was rather nice.

On our last night up there, we went to the last night of the proms at Castle Howard: a classical music spectacular if you will.
The rain managed to hold off so that we could enjoy our pic nic and not get soaked whilst waving our flags to the William Tell Overture and other such delights.

And... i couldn't resist - The T Pot!

ey-up, ee-by-gum and all that other northern nonsense!
