Yesterday, I wrote but decided not to post, a pretty downbeat blog about how nothing was going right. Today, I pulled my socks up, got out my sewing machine and the cotton shawls I brought back from India and made two kaftan tops and a wrap skirt. Also repaired a pair of trousers and sewed a clasp onto my favourite blanket to turn it into a poncho for chilly evenings. Now I´m all set up for the Boom Festival. Although I´m about twice the age of the average attendee, I should now look more like a respectable older hippie, than a frumpy old mum!
