SOME FORM OF WEATHER EMER­GENCY

bro­ken com­bine har­vester and you would do well to book the fol­low­ing week off work.

MONEY DOWN THE DRAIN

There is no set bud­get when it comes to fes­ti­vals. The wal­let­bust­ing ticket aside, you will throw money at ev­ery even­tu­al­ity. Hun­gry? That’s £7 for a plate of noo­dles. Thirsty? Forget the warm case of beer you can’t take in; you’ll be up at the bar pay­ing £6 for a pint of marginally colder stuff. Rain ru­in­ing your body paint? That’s £10 for a wa­ter­proof pon­cho please!

My daugh­ter looked me in the eyes and said: “Yes, I still want to go.” Turns out I’d done a bit of a sales job. But not just on her, on my­self too. We’ve done a deal – she can go with her friends, as long as I can go too. Then if she needs me, she’ll know where to find me; shout­ing my head off, jump­ing up and down in the mosh pit.

Toni Kent’s books, Rea­sons to be Cheer­ful Part One and Two, and comedic po­etry – I Need a Wife – can be found on Ama­zon
