|Our tent in the foreground. The area behind was soon populated with campervans.|
|I'm definitely upgrading to one of these tents before the end of the summer. My back was killing me climbing in and out of the small three man tent.|
|That's the main stage with the blue top.|
|There were loads of activities for children, including this meditation session on the night we arrived.|
|Beth, on the far right, had a great time with her new best friends. We were all camped beside each other.|
|There were still some setting up going on here. Stalls on the left and eateries on the right.|

|Music concert. During the workshop, they wrote lyrics for a song called Best Friends Forever. Still stuck in my head!|

We had an absolute cracker of a weekend. I'm now looking for a bigger tent that I can stand up in. I bought an air bed for the festival, but it took up all the space in the tent, making things (like getting dressed) difficult.
Best buys for the weekend: Beth's waterproof trousers with braces (it rained quite a lot) and the single ring gas stove. So simple to use!
Unfortunately, Beth has a bad cough this weekend and we are confined to the house. Nothing to do with last weekend, the cough/cold has struck a few in my family. Thankfully, I'm ok so far (knock on wood). She is on the mend, but the weather is terrible here so we're not going out anywhere!
I learned how to bleed the oil burner this week. Very proud of myself! Saves me the expense of calling out a plumber :-)
Time to get back to the sick child... The Sylvanian Families are also calling!
