Posted:I got badly burnt too, forgot to spray the rest of me later in the day, after I'd put suncream on my shoulders in the morning, oops.

just got back about 20 min ago (5am) after dropping sam and jo off and having a tea break at each.

much love to all, had a wonderful time, hope to get to know people I've just met better soon. People I've met before, always need more time with you smile

Well done to the Flame guys, its a lot of work putting on an event and everything seemed to go pretty smoothly so you must have all worked pretty hard.

We really enjoyed putting on our show and generally chilling throughout the festival. Cant wait for next years biggrin

Posted:yay! bounce i like that picture too aimee coz my belly looks happy biggrin


i had a lovely weekend, it felt like a miracle to remember what happy was!! ubblol

thankyou so much FLAME for putting it on, for Fraser for the transport and the love, to all my very special friends for making me feel loved and, and to the weather for not being crap!! sunny

All the shows were fantastic, i loved chimaera, loved Fiery Jack heart, loved the magic dude on sunday ( i forgot his name, he was brill), and I loved the fire jousting too!!

The bands were awesome, i would say 10/10 weekend except for one thing: the catering.
please next year can you provide something better than a chip van? veggie burger for breakfast is a bit yuck!

hug thanks again!! bounce it's taking me ages to sort out my photos!! xx

To all the people that helped out by setting up, being on the gate, toilet cleaning, etc, thank you for all the work you put in that allowed me to just sit in a beautiful field with gorgeous friends and chill out.

The shows were fab and the atmosphere was fantastic.

Yippeeeeee for there being a re-run next year smile
