glastonbury! ♥

hellooooo :D
muddied, sunburnt, blistered & aching i return from glastonbury
as you might expect, i had an absolutely incredible time with my 2 best friends
we met lots of new people & i turned the grand old age of 17!
and yes, it probably was the best birthday ever :)
i was an incredible lucky girl because three of my favourite favourite favourites --
jason mraz, pete doherty & bon iver
-- were playing this year, & i got to see them all!
jason mraz was very exciting because i was stood right at the very front, directly opposite him
& the entire gig had such an amazing, feel-good vibe to it
at the end he sang 'every little thing is gonna be alright', & people were still singing it on the way out!
when bon iver played i was again right at the front, directly opposite him
& it was the best hour of my life, by far.
i had a tear in my eye the whole time, & when he played Re:Stacks, i wept like a baby! :)
it was absolutely phenomenal.
pete doherty was of course wonderful (other stage was a bit too big for him though, methinks)
& i also saw florence and the machine, regina spektor, the streets, black eyed peas, scott matthews & good old tom jones!

see how close we were?! very exciting!
i took lots & lots of pictures
but there aren't many of me -- or at least, not ones i'm willing to post here! haha!
as you might expect, i wasn't in the best state most of the time :D
so i don't have many pictures of what i wore, or what other people wore
but i can tell you that flower headbands were very popular indeed!
i usually just matched a dress with a pair of knee high socks and wellies
& i was much too busy having a good time to worry about what i looked like :)
let me know what you got up to this weekend!
i hope you all had a really time
i know i did :) ♥
