Friday Friday oh its only Thursday

                

Good afternoon, I really did think it was Friday for a few moments there I have just been down to the village and that is my usual Friday outing but this week things are different this is T In the Park weekend when 80,000 music fans per day will be descending on our little village again. The weather today is perfect pouring rain and wind just as it nearly always is why does the rain try to spoil everything. The fields will be like swamps after all the rain we have had this month already and overnight and this morning will just have completed the job. The forecast is not great for the start of the music festival but it should be better by Sunday. While I was out the rain had just stopped and there was just a spit or two, in the chemist there were two girls being very hopeful buying sunglasses but I really think they would have been better with wellies. All the little shops are geared up with ponchos, sunscreen ,Wellington boots tent sleeping bags and not forgetting the beer. One of the stores was selling sledges to pull your beer along, on very novel idea. Stuart and I used to take a run up the hill behind Balado where the festival ground is to see all the lights the big wheel and all the tents are, but now the police close off all the roads around it and you have to be a resident to get passed it is annoying but it has become so big now compared with earlier years. I hope it all goes welland everybody has a great time, and the wind stays in the right direction so it blows away most of the noise, sorry but it is not my kind of music.

I think that’s about all for now, still have the feeling its Friday. Till next time, Love,

It always seems to rain for music festivals, Glastonbury is always a sea of mad.  Wonder if we are going to get any summer this year?

I don't think the young people who attend these things seem to mind.  They actually probably look upon it as a bit of the experience!  (Think Woodstock here!)  I am hoping that the weather turns to sunny and warm for our holiday in Cumbria next week!
