Southsea Fest

Last Saturday was Southsea Fest, a music event held along 2 streets very very close to our house. Most of the bands were small, local, unsigned bands - we managed to see suprisingly few of them!
We met up with friends and spent the day wondering around with them, drinking far too much vodka and beer! The bands we saw were:

- Andrea Kenny & The Cavalry - good
- Katie Malco - good
- Peggy Sue - okay
- Doll & The Kicks - good but possibly knew it too much???
- Little Fish - not really my thing
- Official Secrets Act - pretty good
- Kry wolf DJs - too drunk to remember but had a good dance!

10 years ago....

Ten years ago today I was lost.... I had just come to a new town hundreds of miles away from home with very little notice, leaving all my friends and support behind, leaving my Dad behind and feeling shit for it. I still hated the world for taking my Mum away from me 3 years before and felt lonely, incredibly lonely.

Then tomorrow came, the 22nd September 1999, and I met my husband to be.

In ten years he has made me what I am today - a much stronger woman than the girl he met. He helped me achieve my goals and ambitions, he helped me fight the world, he helped me become a doctor.

Thank you Phil - thank you for putting up with me and my annoying habits, the endless tears and all my pessimism. Thank you for the hugs, for believing in me and for making me smile. I don't know what I would have done without you. I wouldn't be who I am now.

I love you.

(And yes, technically we met on the 18th but we got together on the 22nd)

Cupcakes and music

Spent the evening eating curry then cupcakes (Lavender and Chocolate & Peppermint), deciding who we are gonna see tomorrow at Southsea Fest, then watching Strictly.... I expected Joe Calzaghe to be good!!!! Now need lots and lots of sleep so I don't spend the whole of tomorrow yawning like I did today.

Did get to see my hospital's new intensive care unit today, where I will be working in 4 months time - is huge and filled with equipment which means nothing to me - scary!

Right, off for sleeps.

This past weekend we spent in a country park on the Isle of Wight. It was our first festival outside of Glastonbury which we were worried about - not much can beat that! Well it was a lot different to Glasto - it felt much more civilised, partly as we stayed in a Podpad, not a tent and because there were flushing toilets and absolutely no rain! It was much smaller than Glasto and mainly a dance music festival - and thats what it did best - I have not danced so much in years!!! The fancy dress day was brilliant - so much people watching to do! I loved getting my face painted and wearing false eyelashes and peacock feathers in my hair. I was ready to come home after 4 nights - normally you have to drag me away from Glastonbury - but would definately go again - just maybe next year hold off the Raspberry Sambucca!
