comedy and loves stand up. We both love camping and I love gin! All of these things and more were catered for.

I was thrilled to finally meet an author I've chatted to for year online, Philip Ardagh (failed miserably to take a picture of of his fabulous beard too!) I also bought several books by Patrick Gale, an author that had been recommended to me some time ago. After attending an interview with him, and chatting to him at the book signing I'm really looking forward to reading 'A Place Called Winter', but first I'm reading a collection of his short stories, 'Gentleman's Relish' many of which have a distinct 'Tales of the Unexpected' feel about them.

Plenty of gin was drunk (by me - DD is only 15 after all) and music was danced to. It was a glorious festival, in glorious surroundings, and we were blessed with sunshine. Totally relaxing, I cannot wait until next year.
