Posted:Slap me down if I'm being blind, but I done some searches & couldn't find a Green Gathering 2005 thread... So here it is!

Gotta be my fave of all the festies, I been going for 10 years now! The best way I can describe it is the greenfields of Glastonbury, without the rest of the comercial monster that Glasto has become. It's a full on tree hugging, crystal rubbing, green thinking escape from reality. biggrin

This is where I first saw fire swinging & got my first staff & is always the bigest source of inspiration for me. The people you meet there are just so friendly! I had an ace time stewarding for it in 2003, but this year stuff like the EJC's taken priority & I don't even know if I can get the time off work for it, but anyways I'm still curious... Who's going?

thank you all for a lovely time.
and for finding me ubbrollsmile - 2bags, Frodo, Mister Strugnell, Becci (plus munchkin) twas a pleasure as always........ I am such a lucky girl to have such wonderful people to play with biggrin

Hels you babe - festies/camping/general adventuring is always more complete with a Miss Bells to bump into - cheers for fantastic company as always. (and for allowing me to make my only funny joke of the weekend wink )

Dave it was awesome to chill with you for a bit - and yes, Dave in Drag was most definately one of the highlights for me too ubblove ubblol

Eva sunny it was great to finally catch up with you! Hopefully it won't be so long this time before we play again. You and your fairy wings are beautiful ( I am making some this afternoon biggrin) - thanks for much bouncy fun and general loveliness.....

And, uber importantly, all the Chimaera wonderfuls who let me come - fire was beautiful, camp perfect, spikey hair, cider, drums and 12 foot staff of death eternally imprinted on my mind, not to mention raining graymen (dave) and other peculiar happenings.

ooooooo I want to go back! Big Green - fantastic biggrin

I am having such fun reading all these posts and imaginating my kids there. I always thought it was sorta sad when mummies had a vicarious life through their offspring but now I realise it is one of the great payoffs of having great adventurous kids. ubblol

ooooh I wish I had been there to meet you though FNF, cos since I saw a vid of you spinning I just think you're soooo purty!! and sweet spinner! biggrin
