hello my friends. OMG Leeds fest was the most amazing ever but the well second hardest festival I have ever done!!
The hardest was the year about six years ago when we got flooded out of Glastonbury.
This year we camped with "Attitude is everything" on the disabled site and I met SO many new friends, who i called Pot Noodle Man, my Babbees, Wobble Man, Huggie, Heavy Metal girl, I think you can guess from our nicknames what they were like! But Thursday it started, first a 2 and a half non stop thunder and lightening storm, so immediate floods etc. We had a problem that the rain came down so quickly the silent disco tent collapsed and unfortunately three were hurt but not seriously ( i was stewarding so very busy night). Then WE had a baby, as in leeds fest staff and a lady lol, not on my shift thankfully!.
But the mud kept coming. Rained non stop for five days. Being seasoned festival types me and Katy had prepared and our tents were flooded in the porches but dry in the bed areas, so all her friends crashed into katy tent and the Katy and her boyfriend came into mine with me and my brother and the laughs we had!!
Green day stormed it as did a new band called the stripes who are SO cool, i felt a bit weird though cos they are 15 years old!! Unbelievable band and one to watch!
Had a few funnee moments when drunk kids came up to me asking me the way to the silent disco about midnight, i saw them ,as we were going back to the tent ,about three minutes further on asking another steward the way as they had forgotten what I said, then further another 5 mins asking another steward, we all had a great laugh and wondered if those kids ever actually made it to the disco~!!
Back now, but we have so much stuff covered in mud but we all have flu!!! so it can stink for a few days more lol. RA not so bad after the steroid for my flare so i coped well and my life saver of a high camp bed worked again!!
Hope you are all keeping well and pain free and will look round the site tomorrow when i am not so Kn......red!!!! A
