Without a doubt one of the great things about 

summer in London is the music festivals.

With my masters finished 

I’ve  reclaimed my social life

and hit Wireless  for

beats, dancing and good times.


Acts ranged from the bizarre …

Ke$ha – glitter, people in full size penis and pear suits,

growling she eats men alive  covered in fake blood. 


Through good sets from Aphex Twin, Katy B,

Janelle Monae

and the Streets…

But… Chase and Status

The Chemical Brothers stole the show…


with their energy-filled

banging dance sets 


only missing a full version of Galvanise …

Festival essentials… friends, beanies, plaits

The air at West Green Farm is thick with the heady smell of

ripening fruit.

Wander past gooseberries,

clumps of rhubarb 

and tart blackberries…

Till you find row after row of

spring-green strawberry plants.

Laden with


ripe strawberries

which whisper

 “eat me and implore you to pick them.

I might not have been at Wimbledon

but I bet you the


I was popping in my mouth were


than those on

centre court.

The sun is shining

The weather is sweet

What better way to

spend a
LaZy MoRnInG?
