so we head off to Glastonbury on Tuesday evening, and while we'd normally spend the day leisurely packing the car (or van as in most previous years) this year we have a funeral to attend at 3pm, then the 'party' after and then back home to get changed and sort Bambam out for the journey. It's the first time we've done such a long trip with him, so we're doing it overnight on the way there and he'll just sleep through but on the way back it'll be a daytime jaunt so the week after we get back will probably be hell until we get him back into his routine.

i think we have everything organised and just have to remember our mantra of 'tickets to get in, money to buy anything we forget'.......if i can convince my brain of this i'll be less stressed out! i think i'm nervous because of being so far away from home with a little one in tow.......and as usual he will be fine and breeze through the weekend and i will comeback needing a holiday to recover from my holiday.

The raised bed we built will have to come down because the neighbour is being awkward........but i don't have the time or energy to go into that now.

right......Bambamis having a nap so i'm off to re-check the pile of stuff to go into the car while drinking a much needed cup of tea!

sad days

my nan passed away on Saturday night............

such sad days we are having at the moment. Another old drinking buddy has gone to join Daz at the great gig in the sky........and a mother and her young son were killed in a crash on the main road outside the town. This upset me, but even more so when i found out it was the lady who used to live in the flat underneath my sister. She used to wave as we walked past her kitchen window when visiting and really smile when Bambam waved back. I've always been emotional about this kind of thing, but since becoming a mother i'm much more sensitive to it all.
I really am ready for Glastonbury, need to feel the energy of the earth there and get my spiritual batteries recharged......
