Since my weekdays are currently consumed by the 9-5 (plus commute...), I'm determined to ensure my weekends are are strictly fun. No moping around the house listening to the Smiths, but catching up with friends that I don't get to see when I'm in Liverpool. It is steadily becoming tradition to attend Brownstock festival with my friends from sixth form, as its timing winds up the end of summer perfectly. Jess invited me along for lunch on Sunday afternoon, and, with festival virgin Danielle alongside, we only got a little bit lost.

Sitting on the back of a tractor being driven by a toddler was an interesting experience, but it just goes to show how much of a family affair the day was: from Jess tweeting away, to Adam cooking the roast and freezing smoothie lollies. I sat in the sunshine listening to Jakob Deist, Itchy Feet, and Stealing Signs, while Danielle played with Rags, who we've unofficially dubbed the Brownstock dog. I wasn't asked to blog about the day, but I had such a good time and took so many photos it would be a shame not to share them. And, a cheeky exclusive for you, here's the newest additions to the line-up...

  3. That toddler looks a bit shifty to me, I don't think I'd trust him lugging me around on a tractor.
    You don't look shifty though, in fact you look rather lovely

  4. I love moaping to The Smiths! I feel the same, I hate to waste a weekend and try and do something even if it is just go for coffee with friends or a walk in the park. Love the playsuit, they are great for activities bacause you don;t need to worry about flashing anyone ;) but they are a nightmare in a festival portaloo xx

  6. I need more festivals with cows in my life. As long as there is no cow mess everywhere, because that's just not cool, I have bad experiences with cow mess. Just what you wanted to know right? (; And the fact that toddlers can drive tractors is insane; I need to become a farmer soon. xx

  17. So summery! You look so gorgeous and cheerful down south. Liverpool is still as miserable, humid and overcast as ever! And enjoy your weekends! I know working and interning from 9-5 isn't a barrel of laughs. Hope you are having fun anyway!
