    The V weekend (edited version)

    Thursday night: We finally got going at 7pm, chugged along the A14, M6 (stopping at services ‘cos Tricia was bursting for a pee, and drinking Stella does not help this. Nor apparently, does me talking about gentle mountain streams, but I digress…) Found ourselves outside the Bradford Arms about 2 miles from Weston Park along with a convoy of other campers etc. The nice pub people didn’t mind us all camping in their carpark for the night (although looking at the mess left in the morning*, they probably do now). After the pub stopped serving and kicked everyone outside, the […]

    I'm back from V

    No major injuries too 🙂 (well, my back is killing me ‘cos I actually DANCED MY FUCKING ARSE OFF!). I’m desperately in need of a bath (had a poo* when we stopped at some services – pity the next one in after me…I’d saved that all weekend 🙂 ) Top act I saw of the weekend? Pendulum without a doubt (although it was this point my back went), Killers were awesome as ever, Oasis had a great set Saturday too – I reckon I managed to see about 35 bands, drank a metric shitload of alcohol, slept very little…and had […]

    V Festival

    Woo! I’m going 🙂 Paid for my ticket today (£185) so should get it Wednesday/Thursday. Should be a great weekend – lots of good music, mucho beer, maybe some recreational substances 🙂 And the bonus for me this time around is: I’m not responsible for looking after Harriett (AKA Lightweight) – that’s Glynn’s job this year. So now all I have to do is get my tent out and make sure it’s still all there, throw some clothes in a bag, and that’s me ready to roll. Hopefully the weather’s gonna be good this year – it’s sunny and hot […]

    Not again

    I hate Mondays. I’ve said this enough, so most people who know me, know this. Lately though, I’ve been getting the mid-week blues – last Wednesday and now today – I just feel so useless. I really do just want to go somewhere and be alone for a while – talking to people is a struggle, trying to smile isn’t really worth it, so I’m wearing my “leave me the fuck alone” face today. I’m still deciding whether to goto V festival this year – I WANT to go, but would rather go with someone and share the weekend than […]

    Happy days…

    Great week (so far) at work – lots of orders coming in, work going out – all is good 🙂 V Festival tickets go on sale March 6 – I’m definitely going this year, so gotta grab them when I can rather than relying on the roulette that is Ebay nearer the time (August 22-23 😉 ). So anyway, I’m trying to save some money for my Morocco break. It seems so easy – I stay in, do housework and don’t spend money. What actually happens is: I stay in, stare at the housework waiting to be done, eat more, […]

    Now, this SHOULD be a blog saying how awesome V Festival was…

    Bleah – but I didn’t go…does it show that I’m still feeling a little bit miffed about it? To add insult to injury, I was sitting at home last night, having spent a few hours (since leaving work actually) in the bar when I got a call from Harriett – could she come round and borrow my computer to check out something on t’interweb? Being the nice guy I am (and also quite stoned), I said yes. So she turns up and starts looking for tickets for Leeds/Reading and Creamfields festivals 😐 Tickets go on sale for V Festival 2009 […]

    Woohoo! 😀 I WAS planning on going to V Festival this weekend, but circumstances beyond my control (begins with ‘H’, has 8 letters, and ends in ‘arriett’) prevented this – so I’m quietly fuming. One day I’ll learn to be a proper bastard and stop listening to other people. Anyway, Friday – let’s check what’s what: Bi-weekly backup? check Pay? OK, I was paid in advance last week, so check Coffee? Thanks, I’d love one…wait, maybe I’ve had too many already 3 and a bit hours to go… *looks around* and about 30 minutes worth of work. Hmm…I could always […]
