Considering the fact that I saw someone buy three trolleys full of wine and beer the other day, I don't think it will be a problem.

Yeah, that's our destination :) Got an old card which is most likely expired, but guess it's easier to get a new one with the old card than filling in all the info again. New sleeping bag is on the cards as well. Looking at the weather I might be buying a winter one haha.

I didn't think there would be, but sometimes when they've got offers on they limit items to a certain amount per customer. Guess it depends on the cashier/management whether they enforce it.

To be fair, I'm taking a three season bag with me. I got a whole three man section to myself, but I always find that the bigger tent space per person, the colder it gets at night
I went a way for some time, but I guess I should come back and annoy people due to attending this year

Managed to get a pretty decent Vango one for just over £19. Got some of those self inflating sleeping mats too which I think keep you a lot warmer. If I get cold I'll just be stealing the boyfriend's body heat :twisted:

Last day of work today, done all my office work at home so all I need to do is touch base with my team and I am on my annual Bloodstock 10 day sabbatical (four days recovery).

I know this is really sad but I have had maybe 3-5 dreams in the last month about being at the festival but incredibly under prepared, resulting in me missing all the bands I want to see.

Last shift tomorrow and then off to Glasgow with my family for the night on Wednesday to stay in a hotel near the bus station.

Up at 6am on Thursday, say cheerio to the family and then get the BOA bus at 7am from Glasgow bus station.

can't wait! :rock:

Excitement's kicking in now, after being 'meh' for months.

Weighed myself today and was surprised i've lost quite a bit of weight, then it dawned on me I'm probably going to put it all back on at Bloodstock :lol:

Will try to be healthy, but like that's going to happen :lol:
