I won't go on about it as I know its boring if you weren't there but just wanted to share this pic (and maybe a few more later if thats OK?) and say that yet again Glastonbury was fantastic. I've scrubbed all the mud off, feel a bit dazed and am still letting it all sink in. Some of my highlights include Primal Scream, they bounced on stage and was increrdible all the way through with a brilliant small gospel choir as backing singers, Bog Boi - shutterbug and Ms Jackson (need I say more?), Jimmy Cliff, Tinie Tempah (such a cutie), a naked man on stage in the cabaret tent, Beyonce was just beautiful, the silent disco (if you are as scepticle about this as I was, then don't be - just do it, its fun I promise) dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip and also Pulp popped up as special guests. There was difinetly loads more but right now my brain is hurting so I'm off to get a coffee and hide under my desk, I might go for a walk in the rain later with my wellies on and sleep in my garden to try and re-live it.

The weather isn't as good as last years summer solstice so I thought I'd share a few more photos of sunny Mallorca instead. We were on a boat the majority of the holiday and I couldn't resist taking many many photos of the water. It was constantly changes colours with the weather/time of day/depth, you could take a photo of he water the most gorgeous green colour (see 2 posts below) and then half an hour later the sun had gone in and it was a gorgeous deep grey colour. Endless inspiration and just complete gorgeousness. Basically what I am trying to say is brace yourself for seascape overload in the near future, or when I have had a chance to edit them all! Getting back to the weather, can you do me a favour and keep your fingers crossed for good weather (or at least as little rain as possible) over the next few days, or I'm going to be very soggy and miserable when we go here.
I'm still puzzled about the black highlights, I really want to know why it does this. Its happened here, here and here and others that I havn't scanned. There must be a clever scientific reason for this and I know I've asked before but can anyone shed any light?

I don't know if I have mentioned before but my Mum is pretty handy with the old paintbrushes - in fact, I may be biased but she is amazing. The top one is my favourite one ever but she's gone and sold it so unfortunately it'l never hang proudly in my house! Click the link to see some more:
also, if your interested this snap of her studio won me a runner up prize once:

After spending a week without the internet, I have definitely been making up for it this week! I thought that I might be able to sustain a sensible level of usage but it just didn't work. I have found a whole host of new (to me) sites and blogs which I want to share but am short on time at the mo so it'll be something I'll do soon. Meanwhile I've been messing about with some images I took whilst away, hope you like.

Actually I think you will find I have! I just happen to be naturally pale so what you guys call "not very brown" is, in actual fact the most tanned I have ever been in my entire life!!!!! So please do not greet me with "did you have a nice time, oh you're not very brown" I'll either cry or give you a death stare - consider yourselves warned.
ps. I know its bad for you and I always wear sun tan lotion and seek out the shade etc etc etc (believe me its not a pretty sight when I don't!) but it nice to be a little sunkissed when you've spent a week in the sun!

Last week I had a whole week off without the internet - no checking emails, looking at any blogs/websites/facebook/flickr. A compeltely computer free week, in fact my phone ran out of battery half way through and I didn't charge it up until last night. I can completely recommend it, switching off is good. The only downside though is that I have spent most of today sifting through a mountain of emails. But never mind it was worth it! So I am just stopping by to share a few photos of Palma de Mallorca which is where I escaped too and was gorgeous.
Also does anyone know how to get inside the fuji instax mini camera to clean the rollers? As you can see, mine has developed a spotting effect which I kind of like but probably should try to clean the rollers up to stop it?
