Anyhoo... many things have happened since I last updated. (In April, eek!)
I'm now the assistant manager of the Novel Cafe in Lancaster, where I've worked for just 4 months! :D Okay, so there are only like, 8 staff, but still. It looks good on my CV, so whatevs.
I have 5 dreadlocks now, and I think I'm leaving the rest of my hair loose... I couldn't make up my mind whether to be dreaded again, so this way I get the best of both worlds! ('Like half rice, half chips' as my landlady said.) No proper phoots of this yet, unless you can make out a dread or two in the 3 Wishes photos further down in this entry. Which brings me to....
3 WISHES FAERY FEST 2012!

It was a bit of a last minute thing, but my dad bought me the ticket as a very belated birthday present (this is down to me not choosing a birthday present back in February, rather than him not getting me one!), so despite not having time to put together any costumes, I hopped on the 8 hour Megabus down to Plymouth with Monsta & Moon, and then took another 3 buses before finally arriving in Torpoint, at Mount Edgecombe House. Phew! Oh, beautiful and lovely new fae friends Chelsea and James hopped on the Megabus in Birmingham, and journeyed with us from there.

We had a few adventures in the wild, and clambered up one of the follies, as is our tradition.
The Foxglove Queen
The Toad Queen
The Foxglove Queen in her tower
Swamp times were also had.
Just another normal day in Faery...

On Saturday night The Dolmen played.
On the last night there was a Faery 'rave' to which Chelsea, Natalee and I did the Goth Dance :D
It went down pretty well. Natalee was quite taken with the dance, and I believe Linda has video evidence of the three of us making fools of ourselves in the rain and moonlight! (I hope it never surfaces!)
Chelsea, me, Natalee.

On Monday morning, after all fae frivolities were over, we took the Cremyll ferry back over to Plymouth, and sat outside at Starbucks (I know; our bags were too heavy to venture any further) and sketched and drank frappes, and flirted with the pigeons.
