I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

I’d like to thank….

Be In The place - a book set at Glastonbury Festival

loads of people!

I decided not to do a big acknowledgement page at the front of Be In The Place; the mention about John Peel seemed appropriate by itself. However, there are some people I’d like to thank (hoping this doesn’t sound too much like a big-headed acceptance speech!): Chris, my husband, for pretending to listen when I talk out loud about the plot and for actually offering good advice when I turn off the telly in the middle of something and say, “Do you think Laura should do this? Or that?” Rain and Jude, my beautiful children for kindly amusing themselves during the summer holidays when Andersen press asked to see the full book, and me suddenly realising I needed to improve it again with another edit; and also for being gorgeously proud of me and telling all their friends that their Mummy’s a new author. E-festivals.co.uk for allowing me to talk about Glastonbury all year round and eavesdrop on everyone else’s conversations on the message board. Alan Dearling for providing me with a wealth of ‘new traveller’ information; and Greg Martin for taking his time to help me and sending me his essays on the subject. Of course, Michael Eavis and his team for putting on the best event in the world and giving me chance to experience an amazing holiday nearly every year. I couldn’t ask for a better place to set my first novel.
I’d also like to say thank you to everyone for buying my book. (Ok, this really is starting to sound cheesy now!) Not just the people who are interested in it, but the people who don’t really need to buy it – the people in my husband’s office, the Mums I see in the playground, my kid’s teachers, friends and family; those who have congratulated me and wished me luck with it. Your support has overwhelmed me and I am very grateful for it. Thank you.

How to make a woodland fairy wedding gown – The story behind the dress

If you’re new here, I should begin by saying that I make dresses for my business, Threads of a Fairytale. My husband, Chris and I had the photoshoot in mind before I even started making the dress, so I knew exactly what I wanted to begin with, which is fairly unusual for me! So the dress originated as a vintage pure silk Indian tunic that more-or-less fitted me. It’s a gorgeous mottled moss green pure silk fabric with lovely metallic dots – called Mukesh work – which give a beautiful shimmer in the light. Then I went round my various stashes of fabric round the house, gathering bits and pieces that would blend well with the colour…..

Visiting Godrevy Beach, Cornwall – the story and the photographs
September 30, 2019
Continuing the braless theme of my recent fashion post; I didn’t even have time to put one on on the Saturday morning we visited Godrevy beach. As we approached the National Trust hut at the carpark entrance, I covered my chest with one arm, and hung the other out the window to flash my membership card at the volunteer. The bed at the back of the camper van was still out and it must have been obvious I hadn’t been awake long…
