Bank Holiday zine weekender...

Last Bank holiday weekend it was my birthday, it was also a weekend of fun, hangtimes and zining!!

It kicked off at Sheffield zine fest on the Saturday.
Sheffield Zine Fests is one of my favourites, it always has a nice atmosphere and I get to see a load of my favourite people at once!

It was also the debut of the My Mad Fat Zine (a zine about My Mad Fat Diary) that I made with my long time zine pal Holly, it's the first zine we've made together since 2001!!!

Sharoon Rooney approved!!!

It was a sell out!
(some copies still left here though!)

Then back to Manchester for birthday pizza and 90s dancing.

The zine theme continued on Sunday.

As part of Sounds From The Other City, Salford Zine Library took over the Deli Lama café for some zine readings. Steve from SZL started the day off with a reading from his Lil Rem Stadt zine (which was so good).

Em and myself read pieces we contributed to Poor Lass zine and Holly read from her Bruce and my Dad zine.
Then we hot footed it to a church to watch Tacocat followed by a run over the road to see Martha in a warehouse!

A quick band practice then topped off with a late night roast dinner down Toby Carvery.

An awesome birthday weekend!
