The more I think about this year's Glastonbury, the more I think it might have been the best one ever. I missed the rain, a little - mostly when I was frantically looking for shade as I felt my skin pricking and burning after spending more than five minutes in the sun. And on Friday, when I had to miss most of the bands because I got sunstroke. Sunstroke is rubbish, in case you didn't know that.
But being too hot and too ill to touch alcohol most of the weekend (so much undrunk cider! Woe!) was a small price to pay for such an incredible time. Ray Davies was incredible (nothing beats singing Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon in the middle of a group of people... on a sunny afternoon), as was Stevie Wonder (when he got the crowd to sing Happy Birthday to Glastonbury, I cried a little bit). Muse were awesome (although the epic performances of their earlier stuff just served to point out how rubbish their new album is in comparison) as were Two Door Cinema Club, Miiike Snow, We Are Scientists and Shakira.
There's nothing like a Glastonbury sunset...
...or Glastonbury food. The fajitas are legendary.
Or a multicoloured elephant?
Or any of this random, weird loveliness?
My New Look satchel was the perfect size and held up brilliantly to being massively over-filled.
And Sha's little red backpack (which cost her 50p from a car boot!) was ideal, and envied by all. Well, me. So cute!
The dust, I think, kept my hair from getting greasy, although slight quiffing and lots of braiding kept it off my skin, which I'm sure helped. Plus, cute accessories.
That said, when I looked in the mirror at the service station on the way home, I did recoil in horror. Not good. We ended the weekend with sparklers and sky lanterns at the Stone Circle, and took in the view one last time.
And while I think doing it for more than five days would kill me, as soon as I've got home, showered and experienced the delights of a mattress again, I'm dying to get back there.
Glastonbury. You're utterly, utterly insane. Filthy. Unexpected. Joyous. Magical. Can we do it again next month please?
