You know when you get an amazing opportunity to take your whole family away for a weekend family festival? And then one of them goes and gets chicken pox? Yep. That. This weekend (in my head) I had planned the most amazing family adventure at the Wychwood Family Festival taking place at Cheltenham Racecourse. It was going to be great! In the end? It resulted in my other half watching The Villa lose in a hotel with a poxy tot whilst I had Mummy adventures with my boy. And shhhhh don't tell them. But? It was ruddy amazing!
There were so many amazing places to eat on the site. From crepes to burgers to Mexican to churros. We had took a picnic but obviously went and eased in a pick n mix whilst we listened to the music. Oh it was lovely. Unfortunately due to the pox we couldn't hang around for the bigger bands over the weekend but the Motown section on the Saturday afternoon was amaze! Maybe aided by a bit (lot) of Pimms.
I was really lucky to have been brought this Pimms by my good chum Elfa's hubby who took pity on a slightly sweaty Mum who hadn't slept for four nights. Elfa blogs over at Californian Mum in London and I brought us matching floral headbands for the day. As that's what all the cool kids wear isn't it? It was amazing to catch up and watch the vlog to see us have some proper girly giggles.
The Sunday weather was rainy which was a shame as my girl had scabbed over and perked up enough to pop on the site to see child tamer Justin Fletcher. But before it started we hid from the drizzle to take part in a drumming workshop which we loved! Note the husband looking cool in his child headphones. Ahem. I caught up with Jocelyn who blogs at The Reading Residence and we had a good laugh dancing to Justin, in the rain in our Mum coats!
The first thing I did when I got home was phone my Mum and suggest we all go next year. We aren't a camping family so we would definitely book a local hotel again. The feeling of the whole weekend was so happy and friendly. There was loads for the kids to do and I shall never forgive the pox for ruining it a bit. But it was ace to spend some time just me and my boy? And next year? We shall make up for it!
Watch what happened over the weekend here!
