Wednesday Glastonbury 2013 review

On site at 10:15am and helped a friend pitch their tent in the family camping field. Couldn’t believe how fast it was filling up. Here’s a tip if you’re looking for a space next year: you have to navigate past other people’s tents, but there’s a surprising amount of room to the right of the path as you’re going up the hill; so it may not be necessary to keep going up if you don’t want to……

It quickly became hot and burny, so used some suncream at the info point as we weren’t prepared for such sun. Lovely! Wednesday is all about the shopping. Whilst everyone is busy pitching tents and getting settled, I’m out there getting the best bargains before the stalls get busy. My favourite is the 3 for £10 box outside Bohemia. I love their clothes, but watch out for imperfections – these are all shop rejects for one reason or another. In 2011 I accidentally bought a shirt with no buttons! This year I have a dress with a stain on the back, but if it doesn’t wash out, I’ll dye it black.

I also recommend BonBon along circus row. I bought a brilliant £5 bargain in the shape of an ex-covent garden opera house medieval style costume. AND I got a free glitter makeover! So I spent the day shining with gold sequins all over my face. Utterly fantastic. Fished loads out of my bra later, but hey ho.

There were several map changes this year. The moving of the Left field tent was a surprise. Not too bothered as I’m not a fan of Billy Bragg, but there are a couple of comedians I’d like to catch this year if I can.

Food-wise.  I felt a little ripped off at paying £5 for a garlic mushroom crepe in the market area. (Kids had a chocolate and a chocolate and almond one.) It had hardly any filling (about 3 mushrooms), but was still surprisingly filling. In the evening, however I had a hog roast with apple sauce in a soft baguette, also for £5 and was huge! Much better value for money and tasted delicious. It was at the top of Glebeland – I love that field. The Ooh Lala Cafe there looked good value too – will try and eat there at some point.

Came home about 7:30pm after a little snooze in the circus field! Quite a good bit of P.E. happening there with trampets and bars and some-such, which was fairly entertaining. Was tempted at seeing if I could still do a somersault, but too afraid of landing on my face in front of a crowd, so didn’t risk it.

10:45pm Paused Marple: A pocket full of rye; jumped out of bed and opened curtains to watch the fireworks and see them light the phoenix and massive bonfire. Shit. Fully intended to go to the Sacred Space to watch that, but had forgotten all about it. MUST remember next year.

Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset

We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….

Looking for a car rental company in central Somerset? Review of KNW Self Drive in Wells
May 11, 2018
I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t sure whether to write this blog post. Being negative about local companies is not really the direction I want to take this blog. However, due to its recent anniversary, I looked back at my first posts, and they were mainly reviews designed to be useful to the general public. I like the idea of being useful. If no-one writes mundane reviews of things like luxury car hire companies and their prices like the ones of Limo hire Walsall prices,  then no-one is going to know that it might be worth looking at other places instead of KNW Self Drive to hire a car for the weekend….
Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday

The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
