I hate festivals

Don't shoot me, I hate festivals

Hasn't stopped me going to them. But as I peruse Glastonbury online from the safety of my bed, it occurred to me there are other things I don't like but do, sorry did for pretty much my whole life which are festival related

- glamping (oxymoron)
- going to bed stupidly late
- being sick (as a result of taking too much of a substance my body couldn't handle)
- pressure to do things I don't want to to please people or out of fear of missing out (FOMO)

I mean the list goes on, and on. But what I really want to say is this

I'm happy, truly happy for people who do like festivals I wish you all the joy in the world at them  they just aren't for me I'm going to say no thank you from now on.

And I'm sodding grateful not to be peeing in a field off my head having lost my "squad"

We do however have a teepee in the garage that I want to do a family camp in. Chaos but the right sort for me.

Love to all the soberistas out there
