Exhausted but happy

We returned last night from the Limetree Festival . What a weekend! We all had fun ( ok, mum wasn’t too happy when it was about 4 degrees outside and was freezing sleeping in the tent but j was warm and toasty!) and M liked having her face painted, we all danced, squelched in the mud ( it was torrential rain pretty much all day saturday), cooked over a camping stove, went for nature walks … it was just fabulous.

J had a couple of meltdowns but mainly I have never seen him so happy. hardly any sensory calming behaviour, little anxiety at all and think it is one of the best things we have ever done.  The smile on his face below says it all:-Will definitely be booking next year. But right now I need a cup of tea ( without grass in it) and a nice soak in the bath.

N.B. the title of this blog comes from my son’s very literal understanding of ‘ magic carpet ride’ ….. he believes this to be a ‘car pit’ ( as in ‘ sand pit’) and demonstrates this with a plastic lid and toy car. The magic comes in when the toy car is covered with the lid and it disappears!
