THE MAGIC OF THE JUST SO FESTIVAL

What a wonderful weekend we had at the Just so Festival in Cheshire. As soon as you walk under the Just So Sign and enter the festival site you feel like you are stepping into a magical world. A chance to forget about all the ‘normal’ day-to-day stuff and get lost in the most creative and imaginative place. Where you can dress up and where pockets of theatre and performance pop up from time to time. Where there are drawing workshops and you can try your hand (or should I say foot) at learning the Charleston or enjoying a silent disco. Everyone seems to be there for the same reasons; to kick back, connect with their loved ones and spread a little bit of love and laughter. I think they are some pretty good intentions to have for a weekend.

What a wonderful weekend we had at the Just So Festival in Cheshire. It was packed full of family fun. We made lots of great memories that there are almost too many to share with you in one blog post.

Where there are sing-alongs and stories being told by the campfire. Where you are allowed to do things that you might not usually be allowed to do at home; have a pillow or jelly fight, have a midnight feast, build a structure with jelly beans.

It’s that time of year when it’s almost time to wave good-bye to Summer and greet Autumn with open arms. If you are not quite ready to let go of those long summer days just yet, then the fact that you could win tickets to a fantastic festival may cheer you up.

In this house we are very much trying to hold onto that slower rhythm we have found this Summer. We have had a taste of the good life, and we like it. Luckily for us though, we get to sit with this ‘Summer feeling’ for a little bit longer, as we are off to The Good Life Experience in 3 weeks time. A family holiday and fun at a festival is a pretty good way to extend the Summer if you ask me.
