Big and little Feastivals


Friday 28th to Saturday 29th August

Friday morning and Robyn and Tom went off to Jamie Oliver and Alex James’ The Big Feastival. A festival of music and food. It’s on Alex James’ farm which is in a village just a couple of miles from us. I wanted to go too but all the tickets were sold, organised Robyn had bought hers months ago!!

So I met my sister Lynda in Cafe Nero instead! She had come over from Hook Norton on her bike ðŸšē She brought with her two pieces of cake that her husband John had made. Lemon Drizzle and Fruit. They were both delicious. Thank you. We sat for quite a while chatting and then I showed her how to get a jigsaw puzzle app on her iPad. Apparently she’s now addicted to it, a bit like me :/ My nan and my mum both used to do jigsaw puzzles all the time (not on a computer obviously), seems like we’ve caught the bug from them.

On my way home I saw a family friend who hadn’t seen me since before transplant. We were chatting and he said I was looking well and stuff like that. He told me that when he saw me last he didn’t think I had that long left to live, he thought I looked that bad! Blimey I didn’t know I had looked that ill :/ Made me think a bit when I got home and upset me a little.

On Saturday we went in to Banbury so Gary could pick up his new glasses. He was very excited, he would be able to see again!!! 👀

Did a bit of other shopping too. When I was away with Robyn I bought a bag as I had a gift card to use. I really wasn’t sure about it at the time and still wasn’t when I got it home, so I took it back. I want a bit of a ‘special’ looking bag and one which my precious iPad can fit into, as I take it everywhere with me. I have a bit of a thing about bags and I’m always teased by my family about this. I’ll keep on looking though 👜

Then we went over to the ‘little Feastival’ which a local hotel puts on in their grounds which are very close to The Big Feastival. It’s free, there’s just a few local bands playing and you can sit and have a drink in their garden. Luckily it wasn’t raining.

I was recognised there from the article and photo in the local newspaper. I knew the man years ago but we hadn’t really seen each other for a long while. He waved me over and said ‘I saw you in the paper. I thought I recognised the face’!! So we had a bit of a chat with him and his partner.

Back to Gary’s for pizza and X Factor 🙂
