Glaston - Ready!



Tickets - check, camera - check, my body weight in cider and cans of gin & tonic - check, fake fur coat - check, bikini - check, a bag crammed with insane & impractical clothing - check.

1960s floral catsuit (£10, eBay 2011), headband (25p, Peacocks sale, 2010), vintage Ted Lapidus sunglasses, 1960s vinyl vanity case (20p, jumble sale) and a shed load of bastard jewellery

The sun is shining and we're off to Worthy Farm in less than an hour. I should be an old hand at festival-going by now but I'm just as ridiculously excited as I was the first time.

Feck me, I'm finally going to see The Rolling Stones!!!!!


See you in a week (unless you've got tickets and I'll see you there).
