Fairport's Cropredy Convention

What a fabulous time I had at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention Festival last weekend! It was 3 days of great music, great friends, great food and great times! Everyone was in a festival mood and what glorious weather we had. 3 days of brilliant sunshine, though Friday was almost too much sun! I survived without getting burnt as I continuously bathe myself in sun cream as well as my little man. 

My hubby was brave and didn’t use any (he didn’t need it with his Native American blood!). It always seems to rain each year, so I am not going to complain about too much sun!
I started going to the Cropredy festival about 20 years ago, making it an annual tradition. This all got scuppered up when I moved to the States, but I have been back at it for the past 5 years now! This year was the first one where Oakley could run around, and did he ever! He had an absolute BLAST! 

He loved it, and made many many new friends, both young and old. He loved the children’s play area, and kept pointing towards it when we were sat down. He chased lots of girls and lots of dogs! I thought he might have gotten the blues this past week from the let-down of a normal ‘boring’ week! (But, nah, he is such a happy little boy, he kept keep on smiling!)

The favourite bands I saw were Squeeze, Larkin Poe and Bellowhead. Not to mention Fairport Convention themselves of course! 
Of course, there was the traditional Richard Digance stint, which involves lots of laughter and lots of Morris-hanky waving!
