Jubilee Fashion

Are you having a street party or a get-together with neighbours to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee? Or are you off to London to support Team GB in the olympics and would like something patriotic to wear? I’m afraid this is a shameless advert for the Union Jack dress I’ve made and is for sale on my etsy shop, OshunCreations. 

If you’re after some ideas for the Jubilee, this is what our village is getting up to…

We’re having a massive communal lunch where everyone brings a plate of food to share; punch and judy shows, a musical parade through a couple of smaller village streets; bouncy castles and an inflatable gladiator thing; tea and cakes in the afternoon and hog roast and bands playing in the evening. All fundraised by the people of the village.

I’m in charge of the fancy dress competition, so if anyone has any ideas for famous people of the last 60 years, please let me know as I still don’t know who my youngest daughter is going as. (My eldest has a fab idea, but it’s secret!)

The Story Behind the Photographs – Morvah mine

Chris and I took two days off work before the bank holiday weekend, and drove the camper-van down to Cornwall. We had three nights and four days away altogether and in that time we saw Jeremy Loops play at Perranporth; met up with family; took several photos for Oshun and for the blog (such as the one at the top of this page); relaxed a bit, and even found time to take some photos just for the fun of it. The great thing about wild camping is that you can wake up right next to the most wonderful wild places, including this ruined tin mine. One of my favourite photos from the day I chose to have blown up and printed onto canvas for our living room. It was a beautiful morning and the pathway towards the sea was just magical….
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
