Hello Silence how y’a doing?!

Do you hear that? That is the sound of nothing at all!
Mr PE back at university, and the child’s back at nursery.
Just me and my old pal Silence and boy have we some catching up to do!

Mr PE is not in my good books today. He woke me up an hour after my early night to announce the line up for the Avalon stage at the Glastonbury Festival. The worst thing is that as he stood there reeling off a list that is not dissimilar to Purple Elephant's top ten favourite bands in the whole wide world ever, ‘Levellers, Seize the Day, Justin Sullivan (New Model Army) etc etc’ for a moment of pure bliss I smiled a contented smile and said ‘I can’t wait!’
And then I remembered…

I then tossed and turned for an hour thinking of all those larger louts that turn up year after year, chucking their litter about and shitting on the toilet seat, never even heard of the Green fields or the Avalon Stage. Probably only there to salivate over Kylie Minogue’s arse. (I mean Kylie f***ing Minogue at Glastonbury?)

So I finally fell asleep only to be woken at 4am by a wide-awake child who insisted that it was morning and she was hungry and thirsty. So I made her a glass of water and a quick sandwich and she then proceeded to insist that I was trying to poison her with beetroot juice!
I just love my family to bits!
