A Mini Glastonbury

Last night we ended up with a Mini Glastonbury in the Garden.
Ben and his friends, had all gone to their friend Jamie's, 18th Birthday get together last night. When I got a phone call about 9.30pm from Ben, asking if they could move the Party up to our house. Which I agreed too. The Field where they were having the Party, belongs to Jamie's parents, but there is a Public Footpath that runs through it, and runs right along the river. Unfortunately, a few Yobs who had nothing better to do, and had nothing to do with the Party, decided they would go down there and try and pick a fight. Ben got his friend to call the Police, who came down and told this element, to go away. But by then, I think they were all concerned, that they would come back later. So Mick went down to pick some of them up with the Sound system. Jamie's Dad Giles, brought a car full up and then more cars and bikes arrived.
Then about an hour later, Ben realises that in his haste to organise everyone else, he's left his Tent and sleeping bag back in the other field. He thought his mate had put it in our car, but hadn't! So a couple of them went back down, but it had gone! I think it's been chucked in the River!
Anyway, they ended up having a lovely time up here and quite a few of them left about 4.30am this morning, when they eventually turned the Music off. The rest, as you can see by the pictures, either climbed into a tent or literally went to sleep on the Grass. Where I photographed them at 7.30am this morning.. Ben wasn't silly he came indoors and crashed on the Sofa.
Apparently, Ben's friends think I'm a really cool Mum, for letting them all come here. Well Ben what can I say, I am to please...LOL xxxx

Thank goodness the 'unsavoury univited guests' didn't cause serious problems. I love the photos of the unexpected campers on your lawn, and I'll bet that you are indeed a 'cool mum' :)

Kathi said...

Sounds like a good evening for all, except maybe a tired mum?
I remember when my boys would invite all of their friends to camp out at our house! Always a mess, but always a good time!

Debbie said...

Nikki, there was Girls here as well. The one in the blue sleeping bag on the floor is a "GIRL". There were a couple of others in the tents... And they were so drunk they didn't care where they slept..xxxx

So good they could call you and come home to a safe spot to camp! It is a blessing when our children can call us to the rescue if they need us even after they are 'half-grown'. We had a tent once but I don't know what happened to it. My husband is not big into camping--he likes his comfy bed and his air conditioning!
