After weeks, well actually months of D.I.Y. I thought I deserved to treat myself to a little fun. I doubt if I will ever get to Glastonbury but we do have our own Boardmasters Festival here in Cornwall set on the cliffs near Newquay, the perfect setting. There were various stages with lots of different music to suit everyone and luckily perfect weather. Yes I am old enough to be mum to most of the people there, but do you know what, I don't care. I will continue to go along to watch live gigs and jump around with the youngsters for as long as I am able. I hate the whole now you are 'this' age you should be behave in 'this' way. Life is too short, we have to squeeze every bit of fun out of it we can, we don't get a second chance. As long as we don't hurt anyone else, go for it I say.
Faithless were the headliners on the day we went and were amazing. They are no spring chickens themselves, having been together for 20 years, longer than a lot of the audience have been on the planet. It is not the bearded ones type of music so he headed over to the Keg and Pasty stage where local bands played, including a fabulous Ska band called Rudis Message who had everyone up dancing. He enjoyed a pint and pasty while I danced around like an excited puppy.

On Sunday our band played in Wadebridge Carnival. We stopped for coffee on the way in a lovely Cafe called Strong Aldofos before heading into the town. Wadebridge is not far from Padstow, but doesn't get so busy. It has a lovely community feel to it where everyone seems to know each other, and has some nice little shops. If you are going to Padstow it is worth a visit, you can even hire a bike and cycle there along the cycle path. The evening ended with a spectacular firework display, I still get excited by fireworks :)
I am exhausted today but it was lovely having a couple of days that didn't involve a paint brush. I hope you've had a good weekend.
