Sunday at Glastonbury....

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
Getting ready for the final day of Glastonbury.
Missed Adele yesterday, but we saw her at the O2 in March - otherwise I would have waded through mud to singalong with my fave!  Actually, must have picked up a bug at the Open Days, and have been cough cough coughing all week, so probably would just have mimed. Don't think anyone would notice here somehow....
Looks rather cloudy out there, but we really must go for day 3!

Here's one of my favourite pictures and moments from Friday...
The Acoustic Stage with Barclay James Harvest...

We sat outside, eating homemade apple and summer fruit crumble from the famous Cakehole next door. The music from my teenage years spilled out of the tent like words rolling off the pages of a good book. 

So today, KT Tunstall, Laura Mvulla, Newton Faulkner and Coldplay are on my list, and Dave has a whole other list I've never heard of!  But I'm sure we'll come to some arrangement. If I miss a few, it's not the end of the world! We've got their albums anyway! And there's no way we're splitting up! Where would be the joy in standing alone in a crowd? No no no. Better to watch him watch a band he loves.

Have a great Sunday.

Love peace and joy,
Barb xxxx

  11. Hello bloggy friends, hope you are all OK today. Thank you for your extra Phoebe hugs, she never turns down a hug so was very happy. I am going to try and sneak away again today, just have to avoid the sad eyes! XX

    1. Hi Donna - glad to hear that Phoebe has enjoyed her extra hugs, here is another one for her - in case she is upset that you have left her side to do some crafting - love Gilly xx

    2. Hi Donna, I hope you avoided the sad eye treatment and got some craft time. I too was singing and dancing to Adelle last night, brilliant wasn't she. I'm doing the same now to ELO, we saw them live this year and they were fabulous -and of course Coldplay later- a great evening. Sending hugs for you and Phoebe xxx

      Delete
    3. Yes I managed for a while but she noticed quite quickly that I had left the room, then she started the sad little bark of loneliness! So she had to join me in the craft room which she does do normally but is finding the floor too uncomfortable. I put down a pillow for her but she just looked at me as if I was mad to suggest she stay on her pillow instead of laying on my feet! XX

  14. Hi Barb and Dave,
    have a lot of fun on your last day...
    You can´t believe how many street fairs, concerts (Southside or Rock am Ring for example), bike races etc. were cancelled this year because of the weather.
    I can´t remember when this happened before.
    What an incredible negative year this was in different cases and I can´t wait to leave 2016 behind.

  17. Enjoy the music whilst making memories for the future with a loved one. Had Adele on last night and really enjoyed it, she is who she is and fame and riches do not seem to have changed her, a beautiful singer. Sounds like you have a good list to choose from today. Bet your muddy wellies are living outside your caravan. Love and hugs, Jeanette xxx

  19. Hi Barb,
    Have a fab last day, all good things must come to an end - unfortunately.
    Adele was brilliant, but don't like her language - there's no need for it - and young children there

  28. Hi Barbara, hopefully you're in the middle of having a brilliant day at Glastonbury, and the weather, mud, and your ill health have been pushed to the back. I think, I know, sharing good/happy times with someone you love and/or have a connection with IS the most important, best part. Good things/times are for sharing. Seeing and feeling the other person/s happy, and enjoying themselves and having that connection with them, there's nothing better. Sadly I don't have that now, and it sure does make a huge empty hole inside when there's something good. A good idea for you to be sitting outside the stage areas, still being part of it all, but it being more comfortable/less claustrophobic for you, and lets you share the experience better with Dave. Hope you have a safe journey home, and without the long queues this time. Hope your bug clears up soon, and all the wet, mud, and thousands of people sharing their bugs around haven't added to it! Love Brenda xx

    5. Thanks everyone xx
      I did a wee bit of Groovi, eventually! I think I'm done now with the piece using only the starter kit, it's not going to go any whiter. Hopefully I'll be able to get it better using the fatter balls, but that would have been cheating for this as they don't come with the starter kit. Not that I'm going to be sending it to Barbara for the telly, not good enough for that!

      Still watching the news all the time though. We've got good politics up here, and our politicians are a different breed to the Westminster ones. Our First Minister and her cabinet are on it, got a plan of what they need to be doing, unlike the UK version. Unfortunately it's dependent on the EU and its member countries, and it's unchartered territory. So it's going to take them a while to negotiate just to work out what our options are. But at least there's something going to start now, unlike the UK lot. Do you want move up here, we're not fighting, we're trying to sort out the mess we've been dragged into, if we can. But maybe too much damage has already been done, we're not immune to the financial and business impact it's had, unfortunately. I feel sorry for the you English guys that are now Governmentless because they're all either resigning, fighting each other, or in the case of George Osborne abducted by aliens!!! Who's running England/the stuff that's not been devolved to us?

      How's your pain and swelling been today Sheila? Any signs of it easing any at all yet?

      Delete
    6. Hi Brenda,
      Glad you've been Groovi - ing today. You should send your Starter Kit piece in, I'm sure it will be good enough. Love and hugs to you and Daisy, Alison xxx

    7. Thanks Alison. Don't know if I'm brave enough for that!! xx

    8. Afternoon Brenda I'm in a lot of pain today and yesterday the swelling is bad also the consultants secretary rang me today going to fax a plan to my Drs to help me .my dr has now closed down the surgery so we have been passed to different Drs and surgery which is very daunting I've got an appointment this afternoon to see a GP so will message you later how it has gone thank you for caring it means so much hugs for you and daisy .
