Despite us being in pre-op isolation at the end of summer, when the wonderful team at Bugaboo asked us if we fancied popping over to The Big Feastival, we just couldn't resist one more day of fun before hospital life inevitably took over. The day started off wonderfully, enjoying the children's area of the festival site, the 'Little Dude's Den', which features the Bugaboo and Little Bird By Jools tents as well as numerous other kids food, drink and activities (a petting zoo, a My Little Pony bus and the all important big top hosting all our favoruite characters to name a few) but as the grey clouds loomed over the Oxfordshire rolling hills we headed round to the Cheese Hub to seek some shelter and feel good music from the man himself, Alex James.

What followed has to have been the worst storm of 2016 - I have never seen rain, thunder and lightening like it. Sadly the main stage entertainment was paused for safety reasons but that didn't stop us enjoying all the food! We grabbed a beer and halloumi fries (which were rightfully voted one of the top 10 foods at the festival) before finding my favourite Mac n Cheese van. Due to Ivy's health, we sadly felt we needed to leave 2 hours into the wet weather. We were absolutely gutted but so glad we could experience some of our favourite festival before the rain dampened our spirits completely. Let's hope its third time lucky in 2017!
