Today things got better especially when we let the children stay up till late for the main stage at Wilderness. They loved the shiny lights and loud music and danced better than me.
Today I had a migraine and didn't sleep much at all last night (in the tent) and it was super hot, and Owen was very grumpy and so it was all quite terrible at the festival. The evening was nice when the annoying children finally went to sleep and I got to sneak out for some Art Macabre live drawing and hot chocolate with Peter.
Today we went to Wilderness Festival and set up camp! Owen was extremely grumpy, I think the whole day of television yesterday broke him.
Today we stayed home all day packing for Wilderness Festival tomorrow! Owen had to watch telly all day and finished the entire season 1 of Dino Dana!
Today I took Owen out to Witney to buy groceries. It was the first time I parked at the busy Waitrose car park. Owen was really good and patient while I shopped, I really enjoy taking him out. In the evening, I made more concertina sketchbooks and refilled my watercolour pans.
Today Harriet was fussy and annoying. We went to Witney for lunch at a cafe near the green. The children had a lot of fun just running in the field. Owen was very nice, sensitive and thoughtful to me and I was grumpy because Harriet was naughty and I was tired.
Today it rained and rained and was getting cold again. Peter had a lie in. We stayed home and didn't do much. Owen was amazingly good and helpful with Harriet.
Today we went to Riverside Festival and I really enjoyed the live music at the preschool tent (mostly by parents and friends of parents). Owen and Harriet didn't seem as impressed. In the evening I chose to do drawings instead of having a shower (so tired I couldn't do both). It's been raining and was not hot today. Peter surprised me by cleaning off the 2 year old mould from our bathroom ceiling!
Today the children didn't wake us up in the night or morning! Miracle! Sadly I had to get up for work. Bet they will wake at dawn on the weekends again.
Today I sketched during lunchtime with Georgie on her beautiful handmade paper. It was tricky painting on the unsized paper but so much fun trying to adapt to this medium. And it's so nice to find someone who's equally excited about these.
