Well, I had completely forgotten how Latitude Festival has very little phone signal and NO 3 or 4G. So I wasn’t able to blog as I went along. Not that I really had time to do that anyway.
I had a really lovely time. We all did. By the drive home I really felt like if shed some if not all of my bitterness towards Ben and GF and the situation. We were just three people and two children enjoying the festival. I enjoyed their company and (hopefully they enjoyed mine). We were a family. A bit of a bizarre family. But a family nonetheless. The children really enjoyed themselves too. It’s been tricky getting them back into a normal bedtime routine as they’ve been so used to staying up late.
Here are some of my favourite moments of Latitude Festival 2015:
Getting Lala her fairy dress and seeing how cute she looked in it and how much she loved wearing it
Watching Lala do her bum-wiggling dance and seeing other people chuckling at it
Listening to bands with Joshua and him suddenly saying “I know this one mummy”
Staying up until 3am with Ben chatting and listening to music on my iPhone which was totally on form playing excellent music
Meeting the lovely Louisa and her friends on the Friday night and spending the rest of the night dancing to Guilty Pleasures with them
Going on the Big Wheel and then the Helter Skelter with Lala
Listening to Portishead, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds (including some Oasis songs), and The Manic Street Preachers (although I did get a bit sad during their set as it reminded me of my youth, mostly spent with Ben)
Watching the kids doing a song/dance routine while we were packing up
Also I did a good deed. Lala found an iPhone 6 on the grass on Sunday night. I charged it and the next day someone rang it and I arranged to post it back to the owner on Tuesday. Good deed for the weekend done!
So here are some of my favourite photos from the festival.
