Well what a great summer I have had and I feel thoroughly spoiled. As you know we went to Corfu and met a snake who fell in love with my crutches.
Then went to V festival and managed to rave..ye really...fine site a 52yr old steroidal woman "dancing" whilst hoping she doesnt fall down. The disabled help there wasn't too good in my opinion.
But just got back from Leeds festival where i saw the legends that are Foo Fighters, Vaccines, The Cure and Kasabian and this festival is backed up by an amazing charity called Attitude is Everything. They are a charity that help people with any disabilites eg mobility, hearing, wheelchairs, crutches to gain access to live music. You can imagine how hard it can be heaving tents and camping gear into a busy festival in muddy ground. So they let me park in the disabled parking right beside the disabled camping field with toilets and showers and free info tent with hot chocolate etc!! They also helped us carry our gear and put up the tent!! wow they were amazing and they have platforms where you can sit and look over the crowd. They also ask for peoples experiences re theatre , cinema access etc so I would recommend them as a good support for live music events. I am gonna try to fund raise for them and the girls are gonna volunteer to help next year so it was a very positive experience.
So put up a photo of us having fun!! This was right at the end of the festival when it closed after Kasabian so it had been pouring down ha ha
Oh and packing again and off to Glasgow for my Uncles 60th birthday......I know pace myself!!,,,well I will this winter ha ha, so signing off sore, aching, skint and very happy lol and hope you all have a good day out there.
