Watching the footage from Glastonbury took me back four years to my first trip to the festival. I was overweight and underfit, struggled with the camping, and knackered each day by the tramping about in wellies. I hated not feeling clean and I felt properly wiped out by the cost of everything.
But I had fun, after a fashion, and in most respects thanks to Amanda’s amazingness - and its funny how – looking at the footage – the discomfort in itself acquired a sort of nostalgic charm.
I’d like to go again, or to another festival – better equipped this time – if we can work out a way of making it fun for Emily. I’ve had the Big Chill and Bestival recommended to me as family-friendly, will need to give it some thought….
