The last 2 days have gone in a blur, and the hand is coping well, I’ve even started thinking the steroid has worked in the left hand. And hip is coping too.

Camping is more enjoyable now my hip is replaced, but I learnt the hard way about leaning forward in the camp chair. Do NOT do that ever ever ever!! Ouchies.

Like this, never do it with a hip replacement, I have no restrictions from surgeon, but I think my body has set its own!!

So it’s up and at them again, off to the event. We heard from others that the vendors had complained about Jasmines queue, so we had to queue until doors opened, walk through then queue out the other side, so we didn’t block any stalls.

Thanks to Ian and Kelly for getting a photo of me and Hubby and Ian. The queues were less busy than Saturday,and we got some gorgeous postcards and even Disney ones too.

This time we had some noodles to eat, so we cooked them in the back of the car, with coffee to drink we were sorted, and getting ready to explore Glastonbury.

With that done it was time to head back for our last night in the tent, how has it gone so fast?? We’ve had times we’ve been chilly, but wrapped up and with our heater we’ve been lucky.

So many many things to see and explore in Glastonbury, there is never enough time it seems.

Saturday is event day, so up early to see what the day holds. Have to be at the event by 10.30am so we got there at 10am.

Getting there to queue as we are wanting the exclusive Sparkling pink rose fairy pin made by Jasmine Becket Griffith

Shy as ever I didn’t really get any photos, I kick myself for it now of course. Met some twitchlings (other Jasmine fans that also watch Jasmine paint on twitch) which was lovely.

We bought a Day of the Dead bag, I love the detail in her dress. And bought a calendar, as it’s a perfect way to have 12 pictures. Of course we got the calendar signed in December for Richards birthday.

We ate fish and chips in the car, to shield ourselves from the chilly wind, and had a drink or two. Awaiting the zombie releases!! Spooky szn has started.

Everyone was in good spirits, and it was nice to see so many out to support the children’s charity.

We left with full bellies and sore cheeks from laughing so much. What an epic day.

It is my favourite event to go to, a #KarenKay event. A Faery Fair set in Glastonbury, and this time it’s a 2 day event, with my favourite artist #JasmineBecketGriffith showcasing her artwork once again.It is also celebrating 10yrs since it’s started, so I think all the vendors that make this event what it is, are going to feel pretty special about it too.Setting off on the Friday at the crack of dawn, it should be a giggle. Camping at a nearby (25 minutes drive out) campsite that has electric hook up and even an indoor pool. We went there last year, so it’s not new to us.Cappuccino made, pumpkin spice added, I’m feeling all autumnal and halloweeny. Side note (ewww my pumpkin spice syrup was awful, even know same make as usual)

Stopped off at Avebury, to walk the stones, feel the energies and have a picnic too.Gentle strolls to break up the day, before we continue off to the campsite in Glastonbury.Recreated some old photos of the first time we came to Avebury, back when we had 4 small daughters in tow.

Tent up, all snuggled up and now for first night tea, a grand fry up, just what is needed after a long long day of travelling and setting up.

Check out all the space, we use to use this for all of us, from 6 people to 2. It was nice to have space to spread things out too.

Some beers and giggles and connect four finished off our first night. Tomorrow up early to go to the #FaeryFair

Day 114 post #hipreplacement Bionic Camping.

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

So phones off, social media break and family time here we come!! See you in a few days time xx

Glastonbury here we come!! Faery Fayre

Family Adventures, Travel

We are off to Glastonbury for a flying visit. My favourite artist is holding a stall at the Faery Fayre it’s none other than Jasmine Beckett Griffith herself.

And I’m so excited!! Nervous and overwhelmed too. We are camping, but I’m well rehearsed for maximum luxury for hips and back, so that doesn’t worry me. Just lack of energy and pain thresholds do, but I guess they are what they are, I can’t change that. And I’ve waited years to see her. Cue fangirling moments!!

As you can see I own various oracle cards of hers, and I often use as backdrops for my jewellery. I also have 2 canvases, and 1 large print. I have a few things signed. But I’m hoping to take my colouring book, and a deck of cards to be signed.

Back in 2008 I also had a tattoo inspired by her #DarkRibbonFairy to cover an old shark (what was I thinking? Tattoo)

Halfway as tattoo done in 2 parts.

Finished

Much happier now the sharks covered. And my fairy is called Siren.

So now all I need to do is Sleep, ready for the big drive down there, and hope the weather isn’t too bad for use. Will post more once I’m back xx
