working with what i’ve got

Another Splendour in the Grass related post. Sick of them yet? Well, you better get used to it because I’ll be dropping the “S” bomb for at least the next couple of weeks. Pre-event = excitement and planning. Post-event = reviews, photos and post-Splendour depression. Anyway, this is more outfit planning. From the looks of these posts so far, you might say I’m being pretty vain. It’s meant to be about the music right? Well, FYI, I already have my timetable planned down to the minute. Food/bathroom/random breaks included. I am a planning machine. Plus all that camping and food stuff is boring in comparison.

Please excuse the unironed state of some of the clothes (mainly the tee dress). Ironing is the bane of my existence. Although I guess you could say that this would be a true representation of what my clothes would look like after being squished in a duffle bag for days. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up stomping around in a pair of gumboots for the duration of the festival. And wearing essentially the same thing three days in a row. I CAN’T WAIT.

Also, my computer has chucked a hissy fit and is getting repaired. Right now I’m on a little netbook that is alien to me. I have none of my files etc. (HOW AM I GOING TO LIVE WITHOUT ITUNES?) Luckily though, I had some posts saved from the weekend. Like this one. And ones with more photos from my latest roll of film. So I’ve got a fair bit of fodder for the next couple of days, at least. See, told you I was a planning machine.

  25. evie apples July 22, 2010

    no worries over here, i've been dropping the s-bomb like crazy (and will continue to do so until i've completed exhausted it!).

    our lists are very similar…pity we couldn't combine the powers of our wardrobes to create some kind of super-suitcase. if only so i could steal that burnt orange-y asos dress. that would be rad.

    am still working out my timetable…so many clashes! so little time!

  26. Geoff_D July 22, 2010

    Watch out, folks, the computer's fixed now. (Small but deadly problems only.)
