Archive, Family Adventures, Hip replacement

Marking the day, as today is the day we are driving around 4hours to go to Cornwall to camp!!

Yay!! Happy days, excited to say the least. Keen to see how the hip behaves, and how I cope with the long long drive too. (I’m a passenger at least)

But I will be prepared with plenty of ibuprofen, the gel, and cushions, and probably a hot water bottle.

So the last few days have been mad dash packing, hunting things down, cursing and feeling overwhelmed. But it’s all worth it, in the end.

Heading to Tintagel for a special event, a Karen Kay Fairy Event

Tintagel Faery Ball & Fairy Fayre – Saturday 4th May 2019

Venue: King Arthurs Great Halls, Fore Street, Tintagel, Cornwall, PL34 ODA, UK

Wow part 3 already, but I took so many photos to share, I thought it’s best to split the posts up so I don’t overwhelm you readers.

So last 10-11th March we drive down to the #SpringAvalonFaeryFayre to see Jasmine Becket Griffith and visit the Fayre, we planned to sleep overnight and we were camping!!

Rich found a perfect site, not too far away from Glastonbury, around 20min drive, so it did sadly mean we couldn’t visit pubs to drink in Glastonbury, but we had beer and whiskey for the tent (to keep us warm) along with electric hook up, this meant we had a heater, and electric kettle (bonus) we had artic sleeping bags too.

Our home for one night, honestly I could of stayed a week it was so lovely, peaceful and just perfect!!

Bathrooms well kept, power points, showers, hairdryers, vanity units, and artwork on walls. Kitchen areas well kept too. Cheeky bathroom selfie and hubby outside second kitchen area further up the site.

Included is also a pleasant woodland walk, to visit the onsite pool and games room, and restaurant. This site has it all.

After walks and setting up, watching the sun go down with a beer, we knew it was time to head back to Glastonbury for some tea. After much hunting, we came across some hidden sidestreets and found a chippy. Opting to eat in, we had the BEST chips ever. After those we headed back to the site for Whiskey nightcaps and much needed sleep. What an epic day!!

In a previous post I explained that the weekend of 10th + 11th march I spent a glorious 2 days in Glastonbury, seeing my favourite artist Jasmine Becket Griffith, getting things signed and photos too. Along with visiting other stalls at the fayre, and sightseeing around this beautiful and quaint town. Every shop window was amazing, each spoke to me, the crystals, the witch tools, books, everything was incredible.

Have you ever seen such colourful vibrancy and energy in a shop window? I know I hadn’t.

Old buildings, new buildings, unusual buildings, it had it all, and I was thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.

Every side street was a treasure waiting to be discovered. You definitely need to explore and step off the main high street, you’ll discover some amazing sights. Walking through archways, crystal walls, the atmosphere is magickal, and it did my spirits the world of good just being here.

Next time I will show you the campsite and more Faery Fayre. But for now I’ve chewed your ears enough….

After a whirlwind decision to drive to Glastonbury to go and see my favourite artist Jasmine Becket Griffith

All packed and ready we set off at 6.30am Saturday 10th March 2018. We aimed to get there before 10.30 when the fayre opened, so we could hopefully be rewarded with a limited edition chalice well fairy pin badge. But we had to be in the first 80 people there!! Not really hoping too much, but aimed for it anyways.

After some intense parking, the tightest spots imaginable, we arrived at 10am just enough time to gather ourselves together, quick loo break and go for it. Nerves were HIGH at this point!!

At 10.30 we entered via the disabled access, and I saw her immediately!! As I scanned the room I saw a huge queue!! She’s a popular lady, and honestly though the queue was long, it was lovely to see like minded people, that all appreciate the art of Jasmine. And I must say it’s my 1st ever event like this, and I loved being around such diverse range of people and ages. The outfits were amazing. I would of took photos of people, but I was honestly scared and didn’t want to look rude. I’m also Hella shy so couldn’t ask permission either.

Getting closer, and now nerves have really kicked in, I’m shaking, I feel sick, I’m sweating!! Ahhhhhh

We arrived at Strangeling UK stall first, and here we bought a 3D poster, a Calender, and Alice bag. With these we got the BADGES!! one each as we purchased separately and we even got a FREE FAN thanks to Jasmine’s Husband. It matches my bag!! Now we are next to meet them.

Here she is signing Hubby’s calendar on his birth month December. This makes it extra special.

Then here is hubby with Jasmine herself.

I can’t tell you how amazing this experience was for me. I’m feeling extremely spoilt, and very lucky!! I LOVED this event, I can see me coming again that’s for sure.

Coming up soon is camping, and fayre part two……
