A Fete Worse Than Death

Hello hello one and all,

And how are we this miserable Wednesday afternoon? I have once again been foiled by the weather and have got my outfit totally wrong. Yesterday too hot. Today too cold. I have had to steal some old socks I found in a drawer (possibly from a look book shoot as I think they're a little too glittery to be Squat's although I could be wrong...) Well in any case I am now sporting a rather fetching thonged sandals, knee high socks combo. Not very fashionable I'm afraid but I've never felt the need to suffer for my art.

Ok that's not entirely true, I have worn some pretty ridiculous things in the past.... I don't know if anyone remembers a little TV programme called Clarissa Explains It All. Hmmm well I went through a pretty awkward stage of dressing like a cross between Clarissa and Liam Gallagher. Oh god and then there was the semi-grunge stage, DMs a Fido Dido T-shirt and a string vest style jumper over the top. Oh well, you can't win 'em all right? Right?!

Still onto things far more fun than my fashion faux pas..... a fete worse than death!

Some of Squat's clever friends are organising a series of "summer" (I use that term very loosely) fetes, starting this Sunday 16th August at The Queen of Hoxton here in our very own fair city.

So what's it all about? They've taken all the best bits of a Village Fete and combined it with fun and games, a roof terrace, barbecue, local designers (like us) and djs. Pretty good huh. Yes, I rather thought you'd agree. You're so very smart like that.

Now I know not everyone lives in London, but if you do, or you have friends that do, then jolly well pop down I say! Follow the link and find out all about it for yourselves.


It's going to be lots of fun I promise PLUS you get the chance to get your hands on some billy bargains from among others, the one and only, Ghulam Sakina! Woo hoo. I know. So bring your wallet, bring an appetite and bring some friends for goodness sake. It's the perfect Sunday afternoon filler.

Onto some rather more glum news - for you, not me - I'm only going on bloomin' holiday tomorrow aren't I which means no more ramblings for over a week. Ahhhhh how will you cope? Goodness knows but stay strong my friends. Eat cake, shop online and if you get the chance to watch My Monkey Baby on More4 do that. It is WEIRD.

Ohh ohh ohh and if you're feeling in a theatre mood go and see "The Girlfriend Experience" at The Young Vic. It was written by another one of Squat's very clever friends Alecky Blythe. We went to see it last night and it was phenomenal. It's funny, touching, poignant and gives the audience an incredible insight into a world we often try to forget exists. I give it a full 2 thumbs up.


Anyway my dears enough from me. Don't forget the fete and get your bums down to the theatre. I'll speak to you all very soon. Oh oh oh and don't forget about the Cake comp!!!!!

Much love as ever xxxxxxx
