Sorry for the radio silence, it's been quite a while since I posted anything. How's it been going in the Land of the Internets?
I've had the busiest, craziest, most stressful and fun times I've had in quite a while lately. There's been a whole HEAP of stuff going on, most of which I won't bore you with but this weekend just gone, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the London Swing Festival where along with my swingy friends, I danced my little socks off, not to mention an inch or two off my waist. I've never had so much fun in my life!!
Six hours+ dancing every single night for four consecutive nights. I'm exhausted I can tell you but it's been the most thrilling, exciting weekend in the history of weekends. I feel as though my dancing is on another level - how can it not be after dancing with so many fabulous leads :)
Saturday night was themed "Best of British" so Amy and I hand made our own skirts, rosettes and fascinators as shown below. The material for the skirt and rosettes was from a company in Cornwall, with little red London buses and phone boxes all over it. Cute! Much like our escapade to Bestival last year (where funnily enough, we discovered Swing Patrol :)), nobody really understood our outfits unless we stood side by side. At least we didn't have to pretend to be sisters this time.
I'll post some more photos soon once Amy's emailed them to me. I didn't take any of my own snaps as I was too busy dancing my butt off but I know a few of the gang have some excellent pics!
So, that's the latest update for you. I'm trying to recover from the weekend's antics at the moment but I'm feeling buzzed and more motivated than I have done in a while. That's the beauty of finding a passion, no matter how unexpected. It moves you to do the things you love in other areas of your life. Like blogging :)
I'll be back soon, hopefully it won't be so long this time!
