Fri-Yay: Kendal Calling bound

Good morning guys!

I had all good intentions to get back to my blogging Mon-Wed-Fri schedule this week but alas, it didn't happen because 1) I'm lazy 2) I couldn't be bothered taking photos and 3) I've been far too invested in crime dramas to open up my macbook. So instead of something pre planned you're getting a spontaneous catch up post about what I'm up to this weekend - HI!

I'm actually heading over to Cumbria this afternoon to attend Kendal Calling (You might recall me going there last year but if not you can read the post here) a small festival held at Lowther Deer Park. The line up isn't really blowing my skirt up this year although I am really excited to see The Stereophonics and Feeder again.

This year we made the decision to stay in a hotel instead of the campsite as we are the only people out of our friend group going this year and I cannot tell you how pleased I am at past me for making that decision - If you live up North you will have noticed the non stop rain that we've had this week, meaning the site will most likely be extremely boggy and gross.

No thanks.

So instead we will be heading to The Sun Inn in Penrith, a twenty minute drive from the festival site. The hotel has warm showers, flushing toilets, comfy looking beds and a lovely looking restaurant - much more appealing than three days of baby wipe washes, dirty portaloos, the hard ground and scabby looking burgers if you ask me!

I'll be home on Sunday (Thank God, I don't think I would be able to hack three days in a muddy field) and Monday - which I have off work - is going to be dedicated to cobbling some blog posts together ready for the coming week (aswell as waiting in for my Tesco food shop and going to the docs for blood tests #Glam).

And I guess that's it - I'll be back on Monday with a five good things post and there will be a couple of other bits and bobs coming to you over the course of the week (that's if I get my act together anyways).

 Au Revoir!

Five good things #10

1. My family.
The last few weeks have been really really rough on my family and the only good thing to come from this crappy crapshow is that we are spending a lot more time together. My family are
a lot of fun and I love spending time with them so yeah, I hope it carries on <3

2. A fresh cut and colour
After a few months of having shoulder length hair I've finally had it cut short again. I do like it longer but it annoys me something rotten so I'm glad to be rid of it to be honest. I also had my roots bleached - YAY! Having a hairdresser for a momma is as awesome as it sounds.

3. New plant pals
I've kept my zebra cacti alive for five months now so I decided it was time to graduate to some spiky cacti. I got the two above from B&Q from the 'Thank the teacher' section - The big one was a fiver and the little one was £4. I had good intentions to only buy the one but I couldn't resist the little guy with the moustache and sombrero!

4. Primark t shirt midi dresses 
Midi dresses were something I never thought I could rock but turns out I can. I picked up a really nice calf length t shirt dress in khaki from Primark and I loved it so much I went back and bought a black one. They're great for the all over the place weather we are having at the moment and are so easy to style (I tend to go with black boots and a leather jacket).

5. Fearless
I spent my Sunday binge watching Fearless, a 6 part ITV drama starring Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy). I won't spoil it for anyone but I thought it was amazing and she was fabulous in it. It starts out as a simple who dunnit but it's nowhere near as straightforward as that. A must watch in my books.

Happy Monday!
