100 Days.. part 3

June 29th, Tuesday - Dalston Junction - 6.30pm - Just off the bus on the way to dinner with my dear friends, my 'date' for the evening (on hire) is the amazing Bea Sweet. This mural is 'so her' - so a real MUST. X

June 30th, Wednesday, 4.45pm - West End. Haribo Castings. Attitude.

July 1st, Thursday 7.55pm MARRAKECH - I sat on my first day in the square and watched the dancers perform for the western tourist as the sun sets. Mixed feelings spread through me as I follow the flowing white cotton and swirl of bodies.

July 2nd, Friday, 7.30pm MARRAKECH - Day two... and yes she is loaded and ready! Henna to the ready. I thought I had got away without being branded by the henna ink but sadly no, her demon twin grabbed my hand and covered it in strange symbols resembling 666

July 3rd, Saturday, 2.30pm MARRAKECH - This sits just outside the entrance to the Kasbar.. love at first sight

July 4th, Sunday 12noon MARRAKECH -' that picture postcard image'... love the shadows that fall behind the signage

July 5th, Monday, 6.45pm MARRAKECH - The Tooth Fairy in person. Now I know why I am scared of the dentist

July 6th, Tuesday, 10.30am MARRAKECH - Love love this. The decaying beauty, the romance of the colours and designs. Love Love Love.

July 7th, Wednesday. 2.30pm MARRAKECH - a tranquil hide away. A school for pupils of Ben Youssef. We followed the green tiled roofs in a maze. There were about 100 small rooms off the square for the students. It had an amazing feeling being there. - The Medersa Ben Youssef is an example of 16th century Andalusian-Arab architecture. It was originally built as a religious college and was in use as such until the 1960s. It is now fully restored and contains a beautiful marble washing pool, as well as some fine examples of wood, plaster and stuuco work

July 10th, Saturday - 2.45pm Belsize Park. Lorenzo, my Italian Husband and ex flatmate moved out today in the blazing heat to a shoebox of a bedsit. Surrounded by over 40 black binliners sipping MY champagne, we celebrate being in his new home. I missed him the moment I left him.

July 18th, Sunday - 3pm Latitude - The House of Fairytales. Lead by the amazing duo Robin & Partridge this was for me the best place at the festival. A magical space in the thicket where enchanting creatures kept us entertained throughout the day with music and frantic forest dancing,

July 19th, Monday - 6am Latitude - my last goodbye walk around the grounds before I packed up tent and trudged through the London Underground in the sweltering heat. I did this every morning while I was there, so my adventures started early each day
