New favourite act of laziness from my oldest

“why have you got the syrup out”
“was going to have crumpets but I can’t be bothered to open packet so I’m having it with toast instead”….genius

Electric Fields time,been coming here with my boys ever since the Comlongon Rocks day’s,I no longer partake musically as they can no longer afford the hovercraft,hand painted snakes and igloo made out of tablet that I insist on.

Rory decided he needed a tent an hour before he was due to leave by which time most places had sold out

and I was greeted with “you’ve just missed the last one in the sale” at most shops.I scampered around Dumfries muttering obscenity’s to myself eventually getting one at The Range. It was so expensive he’s paying me back until his kids have left school.

Zack has never really appreciated the bands,I get 15 minutes then get dragged away to something else,don’t really see Rory at these anymore,when I suggested going as a family he was so taken aback he almost woke up. Caught a bit of Exra Furmen (led to some difficult gender questions from

Zack) then had to buy a plastic gun to appease him as they they had confiscated his rifle and hunting knife at the gate.Went on the big wheel were I pretended not to be scared when it stopped at the top and Zack started swinging it laughing at me crying …thought it was impossible to go right around but he had a great jumping from carriage to carriage (this happens every year but he grew a beard as a disguise)

“please don’t make me do that again” (look great on a t shirt) give him 5 years and he’ll love it.

Went to find the car later in the dark but luckily we had left a window open and “Mr Bun Bun” (been the in Zack’s mouth since he was a baby) was in the front seat so there was a lack off growth around the car ,birds had just fallen from the sky and the paint on surrounding cars had started to peel making it easy to find

Rory’s been making noises about getting a hamster which seems fairly pointless having a feral sibling to look after

“I’m desperate for a wee”

He’s hopping up and down clutching himself like Michael Jackson,we wait 15 mins and get right to the front of the queue

“it’s ok dad,I’m fine now” slightly huffily

We go and play with ball for another 30 minutes,he’s desperate to go still bouncing around like a particle but still doesn’t go.

I spend a bit of time explaining we are at a festival and there’s bound to be loads of people around (unless I’m playing in which case you could happily run around naked with your pubic hair alight and not get seen)

Day 2 Made the massive mistake of getting Zack a massive ball at the beginning of the night and ended up carrying it at around for the duration ,managed to see The Coral,Teenage Fan club and Noel Gallagher.I sat Zack down and explained the significance of seeing Noel and that was something
