Glastonbury Festival Here I Come!

 
We're setting off for Glastonbury at just after 10pm tonight. Gilbert's all packed and ready, there's banging tunes and sour sweets for the journey, and I've quadruple-checked that we've definately packed our clothes this year.


I'm wearing the 50p "California" gingham maxi dress I found at last Saturday's car boot sale along with my trusty cowboy boots, a fabulous hot pink Jaeger belt my gorgeous friend, Nikki sent me and a pink felt flower I made myself.



Jon always complains that I pack more clobber for a music festival than I do for a month in India but it just has to be done. 


Remember my white vinyl suitcase from last Thursday's boot sale? Well it's just perfect for my hats, makeup and jewellery. Well, a girl can never have too many accessories!



Keep your fingers crossed for luvverly sunshine (and a win for England team tomorrow afternoon).
See you soon!

  16. Oh how I love Glastonbury. Have an absolutely wonderful time, it sounds like you will be dressed to the nines for the occasion. I would also love to be able to go to a festival in a camper van, just that little bit more luxe.

    You'll have no problem finding the football. I was at Glastonbury during the 1998 world cup and watched England play Columbia in the pouring rain in the cinema field. It was a brilliant atmosphere, I've only experienced better being at the actual matches.

    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy and safe journey

  21. I am so jealous of your camper van. SO JEALOUS. Especially now as I try to squeeze a week's worth of clothes, accessories and warm clothes into two rucksacks. :( Next year, I really need to purloin a caravan from somewhere.

    Back to the packing...
