Thanks for popping in.
Although the internet here in Glastonbury is pretty weak,
so I'm not sure whether I'll even be able to chat to you!
Ah well, give it a go...
Friday's blog a private peek, right?
Well there's no doubt in my mind that we made the right decision.
No no no! I'm not talking about the referendum!
I'm talking about staying on a caravan site about 6 miles away from the festival!!!
We went over there yesterday, on a little reconnaissance mission....
Blimey O Riley!
It had to be seen to be believed!
The mud was the first thing that hit you - literally!
Happy to have remembered long tight wellies...
But then there were others, who after a few sherberts, just went for it!
We ran into Mandy with her sewing machines.
People were just having a blast!
Here we have two friends all set for a happy time.
And this young group was chomping across the field singing and laughing too....
Kept trying to hook up with Leonie & Co, but the place is so vast! It would be more by luck than planning!!!
At one point, I escaped into a little craft tent...
And spent a very pleasant, relaxing hour or so making a basket!
Emily was a super teacher. Nothing like a cuppa and a bit of basket weaving...
Tomorrow, I shall show you a step by step of what I made...
Thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, today, I've signed us both up to make wooden spoons!
Apart from being extremely mindful and therapeutic, you can sit down for an hour or two out of the chaos that is Glastonbury!!!
The weather was lovely, and the ground was already drying out by the time we left at 10pm.
Mind you, the party was just kicking off, so as I said, we definitely made the right decision to stay off-site!
As we were leaving, there were still young kids dragging their trollies and 12-packs of hooch in.
There was a time I would have been raving and dancing in the mud too! And in fact I did, but sadly don't remember much of it! But that's a story for another day....
Music starts today, so we have made a plan...
The rain has just started.... but it's only forecast for the weekend, then next week will improve..
Ah well, we're here. We've committed. May as well make the most of it. It will be what we make it.
And the festival.
Have a great weekend,
Love and hugs,
