Away With The Faeries 2016

June 20th, 2016

We had another amazing weekend away with the faeries!

This was our 4th year and we know for sure we will be back again next year 😀

This year was lovely, I usually take loads of photos. This year I did take hundreds but I found I got caught up with having fun being a mer-fae and chatting to friends that I have made over the years

It Is lovely to have a meet up with everyone and meet new people who are coming for the time, after a year or so of going I found that I started seeing the same faces and recognising people, as the years have gone on some of those people have become good friends for us and the children. You do find yourself wondering were some of the people who have been over the years are if you dont see them.

We love seeing the stallholders and food vendors, who come year after year it is always lovely to see them and recognise each other, I am amazed that some of the regular entertainers recognise the children, not just mine others too, it makes it extra special for them, you can see their faces light up with happiness that they have been remembered!

Now we are home and washed some of the faerydust away, I find myself reflecting on it and really being happy that we have a place we can go and relax and just be who we want to be!

I am of course exhausted, I have my wheelchair with me, for me just attending is tiring, BUT I wouldn’t change that for anything, I danced a little and hurt a lot after, major leg, back and hip cramps now, and it may set me back a little…I would do it all again, and I will next year! (if i can) I selected who I would dance to carefully so I didn’t use up all my spoons! (energy) and this year I had the amazing help of my smart crutches! this was great it meant I could stand and have support and dance a little, not really moving me feet or jumping about but still feeling more free to dance with less pain! I really do recommend them.

I have a few photos to share, not as many of costumes as I would have liked as I was just soooo relaxed and happy and in the moment of being with friends and care free, I just didn’t feel the need to keep snapping away, I will share most of these soon, but for now I need a lot of rest and recovery before I share our memories Karen Kay has given us with 3 wishes faery festival!

here are a few just for now
