When I were a lad, you got one bath a week and there were no showers. Consequently this "four days and no shower help how will I cope?" thing is rather alien to me. I find a quick wash and deodorant solves the smell problem.

Sounds interesting. I might pop along. Not camping with the ship group this year I'm afraid. A friend of mine qualifies for the disabled + groups area so I'm joining her and a couple of others there.

Are we talking about the same festival here? Admittedly the queue for signing up for showers is very long and tedious on Friday night (that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back from last year), but there were still loads of slots left when I eventually got to the front of the queue, so I think I'm going to wait till Saturday morning to book showers (every day, otherwise I'm miserable) and avoid the queue. I'm not expecting any problems at all.

OK, once you get there they're hardly the height of luxury, but they're good enough for the purpose, after 2 years of wimping out and arranging to use the shower of someone wonderful (hello!) who was staying at the Pittville campus, I can't think what I was making a fuss about.

Hi All!

Just popping in to say can’t wait to get there tomorrow, packing now =]. Camping in Area 10 with my noisy youth group but will no doubt retreat to the Tiny Tea Tent or most probably the Organic Beer Tent at the earliest opportunity, maybe stop by to say Hi! The weather forecast looks amazing, too good to be true?? But it’s been a long time coming…

See ya’ll there…

I've had vanishingly few showers in the last seven years, because I hate them*. I only use them at swimming baths or if I'm in a real hurry. Bath every time.

*Because you can't relax and read a book in them, which is the main attraction of a bath. And the shower curtain feels like some monstrous membrane when you brush against it. And the part of you that's not under it is cold. And if it's hot enough for the water getting to your legs to be still warm, it's too hot on your head. And because it's quiet in a bath and noisy in a shower. That's why.

I usually book myself one shower over the weekend - and it is the most blissful shower - being able to wash my hair makes a big difference!

hope abis washing endeavor is not proving too traumatic, pissing down with rain here yet again.
still not worked out how to confess to the house owners by letter that their gazebo is now in the tree. Maybe I will just tell them to go look out the window.

Not long to go, i really really hope there isnt this rain all weekend, i know its means to be nice bu i am feeling all gloomy about it.

Very unprepared. Will pack in the morning.

Will pop in the to meet in the evening if I can, not sure what time we will be arriving though ...

yay for GB

Just done my pre-festival shop. Bought slightly too much as usual, so if anyone needs some spare super noodles......

Red Cross Housemate is changing my bandage tonight, one more band practice, a quick sleep, then we're on our way!

And the sun has just come out here.

Hopefully! Though apparently we're not allowed to sell them ourselves, they've got to go through the shop, and we've not figured out how that works yet.

I think it is a private company running the selling of CDs and the forms had to be in by August 1, but perhaps they will take in last minute entries (I hope so cause I have some DVDs to sell).

Now I understand that advert when everything explodes from the car when you shut the boot.

We seem to be carrying enough stuff for a CAMPING holiday.

This is not like the jeans, T-shirt and enough cash for a burger a day that I remember from years ago.

Still, Maturity has its advantages, and my wife says that my advantage is her. [Smile] [Cool]

I suppose I should think about packing. And getting a bit of food to take with me. And figuring out how I'm actually getting there, I guess that's kinda important.

Bah, details, details...

Unfortunately not. I'm getting there.

Just went into the living room to find my Virgin Media Bill so I can rant at them (they've over charged me) and while looking for it, I knocked my matches onto the floor. This made me think `ah yes, matches, they're quite useful for lighting one's trangia!'. Especially since I no longer have a lighter in my handbag -- I leant it to a Methodist and never got it back. But even then I would fancy lighting a trangia with a lighter.

We are all set and are as organised as a bunch of ex Youth Workers can ever be. We plan to arrive at 10am tomorrow [Killing me] and will sort the still not arrived tickets on site, and get tickets for the 2 little ones.

I really ought to have tried out my borrowed tent, but I don't think Mrs Q will be too impressed if I put up a tent in the middle of the living room at 11.20 at night. Well, there'll be lots of time to practise tomorrow. Just before I pack [Disappointed]

I knew there was something we had forgotten.

Packing.

Washing & drying of clothes to take with us seems to have been omitted also.

Ah, well (makes another cup of tea, while wondering if she really can make one pair of jeans last the whole weekend.)

I think that we are most ourselves at our best, because that is what God intended us to be. The us we really like, the us that others love to be with. Moth
