A year in pictures – Day 241

29 August 2017

Such a sad day. We had to pack up our tents and all our camping equipment and get ready to go out separate ways.

I have appreciated spending time with our friends so much. By and large I don’t feel like I miss out on anything by living in Guernsey but I miss people more than anything! Having 10 days with some of our best friends, and then a long weekend seeing even more of them has been so wonderful.

I feel restored, rejuvenated and reconnected. That’s what makes Greenbelt special.

This picture is of nearly all of the children (minue one!) who we were camping with. I love it. Missing you all x

A year in pictures – Day 240

SuperheroesI have some wonderfully bonkers friends – these are two of them.

A mother and daughter superhero duo.

Wonderful friends who I haven’t seen for years but with whom I can pick up where I left off.

A year in pictures – Day 239

My lovesWe have been incredibly fortunate with the weather this year and Boughton House is a really gift when the weather is beautiful.

There is plenty of lovely shady places to sit where the kids can run about and play together.

I love this photo. It sums up all the wonderful things in my life, and as Greenbelt is where I met The Mister it seems very appropriate.

A year in pictures – Day 238

Visitors!Today we had one very wonderful visitor to Greenbelt.

This wonderous man is one of The Little Miss’ godfathers (the other one also turned up the next day!) and I was not expecting to see him at all.

The chance to spend some time together, chilling out, relaxing, talking, laughing and just being all together. This is what makes this festival truly special.

A year in pictures – Day 237

GreenbeltWe haven’t been the Greenbelt for four years and I was beyond excited to be here!

The kids were excited to be at the festival, making new friends and listening to the music. Wonderful stuff.

2016 Project366 (Day 200)

Little and large

I sang in a lovely concert tonight at The Town Church but I have absolutely no photos of that at all!

Instead here is a picture of my first tomatoes. Little and large and they smell delicious!

2013 Project365 (Day 239)

The GodmotherToday (Tuesday 27 August 2013) we left Cheltenham and drove to bristol where we had a visit to Ikea, Asda, Tescos and Mothercare. (Can you tell we don’t have proper shops in Guernsey?!)

We then drive to Weymouth where we were staying overnight before catching the boat home to Guernsey tomorrow.

Before we left Cheltenham we had breakfast with my best friend birdie and her family. She is also The Little Mister’s godmother so it is lovely to see them together. I miss living nearer to them but it makes any time together even better.

2013 Project365 (Day 238)

Beer and HymnsToday’s (Monday 26 August) lineup at Greenbelt was much better! Fat and Frantic kicked off proceedings at lunchtime and then The Mister and I hotfooted it to the Big Top for Beer and Hymns. In the past it has been one of my favourite events, but it didn’t really happen last year and there was some lame excuse about the beer tent not being big enough etc. This year Greenbelt proved that something can be sorted out if they want it to becasue the Big Top was made into a temporary extension of the beer garden. Beer and Hymns was hot, sweaty and fabulous. The Little Mister spent most of his time in the sling and he seemed to enjoy it.

The night was rounded off by Duke Special and the Greenbelt orchestra. It was absolutely fabulous and a great way to end the weekend.

So, that; it for another year. A different Greenbelt for us, but a very enjoyable one. I have to admit that I enjoyed not camping as I felt like my time on the festival site was well spent. I loved seeing all my friends and it is always the chance to touch base with some of my dearest friends. Listening to good music and hearing good talks is always a bonus, it is the people I want to see.

2013 Project365 (Day 237)

5 years today!Today (Sunday 25 August 2013) we spent all day onsite at Greenbelt although there wasn’t an awful lot that really appealed to me. The evening lineup on mainstage was just so loud that it totally turned me off. The Little Mister and I went to communion which I quite enjoyed for a change. First thing in the morning I also appeared on Radio Guernsey talking about Greenbelt!

The most important thing about today though is that it is five years today since The Mister and I got together. Five of the happiest years of my life, and marked by a picture of our best achievement so far!

2013 Project365 (Day 236)

The Juggler's AssistantToday we went onto site at 10ish and stayed all day. For part of the afternoon we looked after our friend’s daughter Elizabeth. She is generally pretty entertaining and was the jugglers assistant at one of the sideshows. She is such a confident, cheerful little girl and she is a pleasure to have around.

This evening we heard the rather amazing Boxettes who do close harmony and some incredible beatboxing and then we went to hear Graham Kendrick play in the Big Top. He mainly did his old favourites and I was genuinely quite impressed at his performance, especially when you realise how old so many of those songs are! Also some of them are really quite good and generally theologically sound. Of course, the biggest hit of the show was Shine Jesus Shine!
