Water and beer now packed, last bits of clothing adding to the groaning heap and batteries laid out for charging.

Half day today so I can get a run in before the weekend, so only a few hours and two meetings to go.

Must remember a folding chair.

8.

Finally starting to register something on the excito-meter. I didn't realise how badly-organised all my kit was, but I'm gradually piecing it all together. In the interests of comfort, I shall be bringing separate evening wear - my latest spring collection! :giggle:

I haven't even started to pack. Too busy this week!

In the interests of ease, what do we all think about driving to the local chippy instead of fiddling around with cookers and all that?

As we're finishing after dark, this might be preferable.

Chippy does it for me. It'll be dark when we get back to the tents, so, less fussing with scoff leaves more time for drinking.

After dicking about with kit all day, 90% of which is for other people or for group use, I'm finally sorted and up to an "8" now.

OK, everything's down from the loft. I just need to move the borrowed PA system from my dance events to get to the pyro container.

Chippy! Yay!!

Kit's in the car, floor to ceiling, front to back. :slap:

Room for a driver though, so that's nice. Weather will be perfect, might even see the sun on Saturday. Putting this at 9.5 - lost half a point as there are a million things I should be doing this weekend rather than indulging myself. But meh.
