The only store you could ever need. Music and coffee on tap. what more could you want (a bigger bank balance maybe?)
I have to admit to being a bit out of practice on surviving a festival and although Common People was a two-day event we only went for the Saturday, too much sun, too much excess and too much money spent on day-one put us off going back for the second day but it was a lovely day. What’s not to enjoy, live music, friends and a drink (or several).
The line up was good and although I’m a little embarrassed to admit it I was really looking forward to seeing Chaz and Dave, and as far as a good old knees up in the park goes they didn’t disappoint. There were some great bands there and Little Brother Eli have become a favourite. Observations? The cost of alcohol at festivals (and gigs in general) is still, and probably always will be, a rip off – £22 for a (plastic) bottle of Pinot Grigio and no matter how much of a good idea it seems at the time do not succumb to glitter face painting – I’m still finding glitter in places it should never be two months later. 🙂
We seem to have a Plague of Ladybirds in the new house. Within seconds of opening a window they’re everywhere. There are a lot of infestations that could be worse.
- They’re Cute
- They’re Red
- They’re Pretty
- They Eat Aphids (lots of Aphids – up to 5000 in an average Ladybird lifetime)
- They have white feet (who knew?)
