Plasters – Glastonbury Festival advice!

Those sticky things you put on yourself when the skin is torn, blistered, grazed or cut. Or just for some sympathy.

This is my review on plasters. Not so strange if you’re donning a pair of ex-army boots this summer that you only dig out for festivals. Actually this review could be quite useful for all manners of new footwear.

Yes this isn’t the sort of review you’d probably find in normal people’s websites, but it will be useful for people heading to Glastonbury, or indeed any other festival where you have to walk for miles every day. Or indeed anyone who likes hiking, rock climbing or skipping.
It isn’t an extensive review, but I went running the other day for the first time in exactly a year. (I do this before Glastonbury every time in an attempt to lose weight in case it is hot enough for little clothes (usually matching pink bra and tutu)) However I wore the same trainers as last year, which I have worn every day as slippers since; and thus got massive blisters on the soles of my feet. The following day I wore my most cushioned pair of shoes, which proceeded to give me blisters on the side of my ankles; so the day after that I wore flip flops, which gave me blisters on the top of my feet. Not good when heading for a festival where you walk 3 miles carrying everything on your back between the car and chosen campsite.
So during those few days I have been wearing plasters and the review is thus: Sainsbury’s waterproof plasters are completely and utterly shite. Do not ever bother buying these; they have absolutely no sticking power and have begun falling off on one side before you’ve finished peeling off the backing on the other side. Boots fabric plasters are slightly better. They will probably be ok on cuts on the skin that get little or no friction; such as the face. Sainsbury’s fabric plasters have triumphed. Very stretchy and flexible fabric and sticky and sturdy enough to survive even the rubbiest of rubby shoes. I recommend these plasters highly. And they are not too sticky so that the pain factor when peeling off again is actually relatively low (relative to the tape they put over cotton wool after blood tests). Just right!

Oh yeah, also, from past experience, those Barbie waterproof plasters are rubbish too.

Health,

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
