The Florida Mall

Just a quick note about this shopping mall in Florida…

The advice on The Dibb was to travel an extra half an hour to a different mall, (can’t remember the name, sorry), but we couldn’t be bothered! So we went here. My thinking was to go shopping on a Saturday because the theme parks are meant to be busiest then, however, I’m not sure this was the right thing to do as the mall was so busy. It was packed and felt quite uncomfortable. To be honest, I was also a bit disappointed in it and didn’t buy anything for myself. J C Penny’s was the best shop there, and we bought Rain’s prom dress (forward planning for nearly a whole year ahead!) and a party dress for Jude to keep her happy. The shop had their ‘Home Coming’ dresses out and on 40% off sale, so we took advantage of that and got some bargains. Rain’s also happy that no-one else at school will have the same dress! As a treat for being so good on the holiday, we also bought Rain a pair of knee-high converses and Jude an Abbey Dawn hoody; also both a bargain compared to British prices. Hot topic was a bit of a let-down though because they only had band branded t-shirts and no other cool clothes as it was a fairly small shop. I’m glad we got the things for the kids because their reactions really cheered me up, but I couldn’t help being a bit disappointed that there was nothing there for me – the clothes were so boring. Even the H&M was full of really dull clothes – not like its shops in Britain at all. Never mind.

The story of the photographs – Glastonbury Festival 2016
July 7, 2016
You are probably aware by now that this year’s Glastonbury Festival was quite a muddy one! Unfortunately I can’t find anywhere to buy camera cases that fit my Panasonic Lumix GM1 when it has a long zoom lens attached. So, as I have a sturdy leather case for the kit lens that came with it – 12-32mm (24-64 equiv) – I decided not to risk damaging my others. It was a good decision because the cover did get quite a bit of mud on it! However it means my photography was a bit limited this year. Not just by the lens, but unless you were there, I don’t think you can ever understand what it’s like to try and get around in that thickness of mud. It is almost up to your knees in places and sucks you down like it’s superglue, so even just taking a few footsteps to the right to get the best angle simply isn’t doable, let alone running to the most photogenic field when the sun sets! So I didn’t get as many good photos as I would have liked, but here are the best ones….
Where to go in the South-west for May Day weekend
April 29, 2016
I love the May day bank holiday. Ever since I read The Secret World of Polly Flint by Helen Cresswell when I was nine or something, I’ve had a magical feeling in my bones when May the first comes around. “A maypole in the month of May, is magical, or so they say!” And it’s a good time to go faerie spotting, though I’ve had no luck yet. I’ve also washed myself in the early morning dew (how very pagan of me) but whether or not it’s made me beautiful, well, I’m not really one to say! Here are a few ideas for events happening this weekend in the south-west of England. Some are quite famous, but hopefully there’s some you haven’t heard of before and would like to visit…
