…It’s been months since I last blogged, here. I could try and woo you with tales of extreme excitement and better things to do but the truth of the matter is, real life just got in the way. I started a new day job, worked away for a month, had the holiday of a life time (even though we’ve just booked again for next year!), organised a festival, had some upsetting news, made some cakes, cleaned the house and generally got on with it. There have been freelance nicities along the way, in the shape of Jubilee festivals and make-up for shows. With autumn upon us (hooray!) and aforementioned festival imminent, I thought I would put fingers to keys, again, and pop a little blog up, here.
The most exciting thing to have happened, in recent moths, was our holiday to Nice & Monaco. We fulfilled a life-long ambition to go to the Monaco Grand Prix where we got so close to the action, pits & drivers. The whole experience was everything and more than you could imagine it would be. The yachts were massive, the casino was glamorous (yes, i paid €20 for a glass of champagne), the women were beautiful, the cars were monsters and the men all smelled nice. We even brushed shoulders, quite literally, with Antonio Banderas! My heart sank when we had come back but I promptly got a new tattoo to commemorate the experience.
And so, on to the Welsh Rockabilly Festival, which takes place in just two week’s time. Everything is coming together nicely, will all acts ( bands and burlesque) booked and final touches being made. All the details can be found here. Do come and join us, it’s going to be rip-roaring fun!
Mr Flamingo and I are off to Goodwood Revival, this weekend. You may recall we went last year so we’ll be more informed about what to do, this year. Weather permitting, I shall be going for a mid 1960s look. If the weather’s rubbish, it’ll be raincoat and wellies!
So, that’s six month of my life, in a nutshell. What have you all been up to?
