Hi, it's me, Joe.
What a weekend I've had! It's been the bestival of times… and the worstival. Well, actually, it was mostly the BEST really, I was just trying to make a clever literary reference.
I've just got back from my first ever festival – and I loved it! Camp Bestival, set in the gorgeous setting of Lulworth Castle in Dorset, is just the most amazing place, filled with groovy kids just like me, all aching and itching for fun! There was so much for us kids to do: there was a carousel, and a helter-skelter, and giant letters to clamber over, face painting, dress-up, an Insect Circus (and you didn't need a microscope to see them), as well as Zippos. Every so often my mummy would try and drag me off to see some band (Marc Almond, anyone?), but I usually managed to get her back into the Kids Garden pretty quickly.
My favourite place to hang out was the Isle Of Boden – a really cool tent, hosted by those lovely folk at Boden, with loads of activities, a rock school, a disco, colouring in… They also had this really cool Mini Bodenmobile that was decorated with crazy psychedelic flowers – and you could step instead and get your photo taken. Just too cool, man. They also had bedtime stories with Billy Bragg. Actually, I don't really know who he is, but my mummy seemed impressed. Or was it just the Cherry Boden Bellinis…?
The only worstival thing was the trek across the site to get to our campsite when my mummy made me get out of my buggy cos she couldn't push me up the hill. Yeah, well maybe if you'd had one less Bellini, mummy!
More of my adventures coming soon…
