As promised - Oxegen

Oxegen festival was a couple of weeks back now - how time flies when you're having fun/working/going to t'gym/catching up with folk/watching shit tv/shopping online*. I was there with work for the Schuh Welly Exchange, which I've mentioned on here before. You'll get the gist from the tent front though...

Here are the wellies just waiting to be tried on!




It was great fun chatting to people at the festival and also having the opportunity to be involved in something that's working for a good cause - people literally couldn't believe that all they had to do was hand over their festival muddied shoes and we'd give them a brand new pair of wellies. Woop!

But it wasn't all work...

Oh no, we had time for some eating, drinking exploring and, of course, for some bands and dancing!


Dancing like a loon...

Dress (£5 in sale) and sunnies: H&M, hairband: bought in San Fran on honeymoon. Pal: Dave
Neil and I comparing massive wine bottle sized hands...
And as I mentioned, we had a great time checking out bands - mainly bigger folk since it was mostly in the evening that we were free...

Two Door Cinema Club. And people.
The Strokes. I die. Mr Scribbler was forewarned that if I didn't come home it was because I'd run off with Fabrizio Moretti, AKA one of the finest men EVER.

Liam slept all the way through the Beady Eye set. They were better than I expected.

The Arctic Monkeys. Also better than expected and Alex Turner got hot too! Score. Basically music festivals turn me into a perv.
The Foo Fighters. Honest. No, really!
We enjoyed that lot. This lot not so much...
I suspect U 100%, absolutely can beat a burger...especially their burgers.
Mr Mankini. Tell your eyes I'm sorry. They say a problem shared is a problem halved though. So, by rights, for everyone of you who sees this, my eyes will gradually heal. Yes, I realise I'm the one who took a picture of it.

I saw a bloke in one of those mankinis at Glasto, he was off his head and the strap was off centre. He had the physique of Johnny Vegas and it was the most horrific sight ever! x

Ohhhh, gross! Did you have to share that?! I was all ready to write a nice comment about how much I like your stripy dress and now I have to go and be sick in a bin.
