this weekend was sports festival at one of my schools. this is a really big deal round these parts. they rehearsed for it all week. real lessons were cancelled so that they could perfect their three legged race, their hula hooping and their rope jumping skills ( 35 people. one rope not to be sniffed at). most of the games looked like the kind that you play only when drunk. you know tying (30) peoples legs together and then watching them run. running round traffic cones clutching long poles. making human pyramids. etc etc although all of these were practiced and practiced and performed with the dedication of true athletes! man they must have been tired by the time the actual day came round. banners were made, pom poms where waved, horns were blown and marching bands played. i do not remember anything like this at my school ...did we even have a sports day? was i too busy being the arty, gothy girl to notice?!

o what a golden week indeed! we camped on a beach, which i can happily report we had to ourselves with the exception of a few surfers. it was miles away from civilisation . we had beach bonfires beneath the stars in a perfectly sized and positioned sand dune every night, cooked delicious sea food, played games and got satisfactorily sunburnt. if more of this is what i have in store this summer im a happy girl. pictures to follow.... in the meantime; music + excellent video.
