I don’t appear to be very good at the titles of these posts..they’re very boring.
We had a power cut this morning! Word from the Post Office is that the transformer (Optimus Prime I believe) was on fire this morning and the silly woman, who’s garden it was in, threw a bucket of water over it. Never throw water on an electric fire..find some carbon dioxide and put that on it. It appears to be fixed now because I’m up at running aren’t I? I thought I was at an advantage on my laptop because I had battery, I forgot that I would need the Wifi to get onto the internet.
I am so much less irate today 🙂 Hardly irate at all infact! My shoulder’s stopped hurting as well so that’s fabby. The low blood counts by the way are due to the Sutent and could take up to 6 week to get back to normal (hold the phone..no crowded places for 6 weeks?! Nightmare.), if they say I can’t go on holiday then I will say stuff you. Yes yes yes I know, I know! I will be more annoyed if I get ill and I know I DON’T know better so give me a bit of credit.
I have been reading a magazine today talking about all festivals great and small and it turns out there are at least five festivals a stones throw from me, including Big Chill. An affordable vintage, quirky, retro shop sounds like quite the fantastic idea to entertain the tourists nearby so I am so so so up for my shoppe! I have some fantastic ideas for display and all sorts!
If you’re interested then the festivals nearby are:-
Big Chill at Eastnor Deer Park, 4th – 7th August, £165 for the weekend (although there are special rates for residents/children etc – not so much discount as when they weren’t taken over by Festival Republic but whatever.)
Winterwell at secret location nearby, 17th – 19th June, £100 for the weekend (growing due to word of mouth advertising – cute!)
2000trees at Upcote Farm in Cheltenham, 14th – 16th July, £59 for the weekend (although they are now sold out..)
Wychwood at Cheltenham Racecourse, 3rd – 5th June, £115 for a weekend adult (or £122 on the door)
Barn on the Farm at Over Farm Market in Gloucester, 8th – 11th July, £48.94 for a full weekend plus special Friday ticket (now sold out but you can buy the Saturday-Monday ticket for £39.20)
Took me ages to find a picture but this is from my friend Alice’s archive..Those tents look like carnage! When Toby and I went to V festival a couple of years ago we B+B’d it!
