After being told several times over the weekend that I must be MAD, it suddenly struck me on Sunday, that perhaps I actually am.

According to Wiki, a group of children is either a “flock,” or a “bundle”. Doesn’t sound right to me. Surely some of the other group names feel more fitting?

Anyway, we’ve just got back from a fabulous weekend at Elderflower Fields Festival with some lovely friends and a ‘flock’ (or ‘bundle’) of kids. Our squawking ‘flock’ consisted of about 12 kids or various ages between 1 and 11. They all got on so well, not a squabble or moan all weekend. Continue reading ‘Letting the ‘flock’ fly free’

I’ve been going to festivals for years, since the care free days of hurling myself over the fence at Glastonbury with nothing but a fur coat and a bottle of vodka. Think I’ve pretty much been to most of them in one way or another, working, playing and having fun. There’s nothing quite like it, and even since I had kids I still feel happiest in a field somewhere….. surrounded by smiles.
