I am home. And very happy to be. It was a sunny lots of sun. We were all like lizards. I am feeling tanned, which is always a nice feeling! I have taken lots of photos, but they will be developed in a couple of days. So for now all we have are my sketches. 
I did a lot of drawing on this holiday, I get a bit bored lying in the sun for hours so I decided to paint instead. So to give you a taster here are my drawings, sorry if they aren't very clear, they are quite hard to photograph...

Above is our friends house, outside on the veranda, the house was called Casa Paloma. I loved this spot, my fave in the hole house.

On the second night there was an absolutely massive storm, like 4 hours long, continuous fork lightning. It was terrifying, but also rather exciting. Anyway after supper we drove up to the light house to see the stormy sea. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The sky was completely black, now and it would flash and it would be bright as day. The white lighthouse sat on the edge of the cliff with nothing around. You could barely see the sea through the rain, but the light on the lighthouse shone for miles. It spun illuminating its path and as we drove away from it I watched it shine on the moor like land until we left it over a hill. It was just so eerie and amazing that I just had to visit it again in the day to see what it actually looked like. We went the next day and I drew these two pictures of it. (One is of the bottom and the other of the top, because I couldn't fit it all on one piece of paper!)

This was the kitchen at the house.

Tree beach. We came here and had a picnic. It was so nice, and you could see the mainland (Ibiza) in the distance.

This was my favourite beach. It was called Regatta Beach I think. Sadly we only came here on our last day so I only went once but it had a lovely combination of rocks and sand. Also you could see the lighthouse on the cliff in the distance which was pretty cool.

Anyway thats all for now, Hope you like.

Hello lovely people. Tomorrow is a very exciting day. Me and my mum are going on a last minuet holiday to Formentera...a beautiful island a 30 minuet ferry journey off Ibiza. I am so thankful for this  because I was beginning to dread the awful lead up to school. So anyway I wont be around here for a week...I feel it will be a cleansing week without internet and I will feel good about life at the end (I know great optimism and I am sure after a week back in school I will be all glum again but for now all is good). 

Peace out.
See you in September.

Moon Glasses.

Yesterday I spent the day with my Grandma at her house in Cumbria. She has lived there since my dad was a long time. Every time I go I make it my mission to find something really cool and old. I went to rummage through her attic and found some great little gems! 

Above are my grandmas "moon glasses" as she called them. She told me she used to have so many pairs of crazy sunglasses, but that people would sneak them into their bags after picnics because she said she was "quite the sunglasses queen".

I found a whole pile of old vogue's amongst some old country life's. All are from various years in the 1970's. They are so fun to look at, the fashion is sometimes quite funny! Below are some pages from a few of them...

Hope you like.

A Teddy Bear's Picnic.

My friend Io has been living with us the past few days whilst her parents were on holiday. We got up to some crazy stuff. Yesterday was her last day with us and so we decided to make an awesome picnic and go and eat it! Turned out the magnificent feast we were planning didn't really work out due to a sever lack of food in the fridge, so it ended up being couscous and salad with some flapjacks and rather old meringues...but hey it looked nice :) So we put on our fur and gathered the family and wandered out into the rain for our happy picnic under "Twotrees" which is my favourite tree in the world. Anyway enough talk here are some photos...

Lately I have been feeling surprisingly wintery. After about the third week of summer I was kind of over it! Its kind of sad really, I think the majority of us spend most of our time wishing for something we don't have...and with me I tend to wish for the opposite season to the one I am in. So anyway whilst trawling through all my old photos I came across these proper wintery photos I took last enjoy...if you feel like me this should cheer you up! 

This is our hut on a hill by our house called the fondu hut...because we have fondu in it a lot.

This final photo is one of my favourite and my mum call it 'Our little bit of Canada.'

Hopefully you weren't looking for something to make you feel summery, if so, I am very sorry for bringing down your mood haha.

Hope you like.

So for the past few days I have been staying with various friends because my parents went on holiday (without me...I know so unnecessary) anyway so I am at my friend Eliza's house at the mo. We went wild this morning and decided to dress up as crazy punks! It was so fun and I love the look so much...I feel I may just have to become a punk for a bit! Anyway here are some photos (taken by Eliza's awesome sister Minna)...enjoy:
