Summer Vibes Festival at Uckfield (E. Sussex)

At Uxford Field, behind Tescos, 15th July 2006

I’ve just got back, but it carries on till midnight, so get yourself down there – there’s still time! I think it’s fantastic that a group of young people have put together a free festival and today it really did have the perfect summer vibe. Just the fact that it was totally free was amazing – I really do hope the group called The Young Ones continue this year after year.

There was a small stage for the bands – and the ones I heard were pretty good (especially Chia Chia), another set up at the back of the field which I think was being called the acoustic tent, and if I’m honest, there wasn’t a lot else. I’m surprised there weren’t more craft stalls, as that was what I mainly went for – I doubt the pitches cost too much so I thought it would be perfect. I bought a lovely Perusian necklace for only £4 – bargain! (So craft stall holders – sort it out for next year!)

There were a couple of chill out tents – the Sky tent being full of cushions and mattresses and a bunch of teenagers rolling all over them! An African themed tent, and African food. The best place for kids was at the top of the field at the Art tent – full of crafty things that my kids loved – especially decorating cakes.

But mainly it was a really chilled out atmosphere and the place was full of cool and beautiful people.

3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
Where to go in the South-west for May Day weekend
April 29, 2016
I love the May day bank holiday. Ever since I read The Secret World of Polly Flint by Helen Cresswell when I was nine or something, I’ve had a magical feeling in my bones when May the first comes around. “A maypole in the month of May, is magical, or so they say!” And it’s a good time to go faerie spotting, though I’ve had no luck yet. I’ve also washed myself in the early morning dew (how very pagan of me) but whether or not it’s made me beautiful, well, I’m not really one to say! Here are a few ideas for events happening this weekend in the south-west of England. Some are quite famous, but hopefully there’s some you haven’t heard of before and would like to visit…
