Had a wander around the bookshop next door (convenient) already and bought a book which I have been wanting for ages and Booker longlisting makes no difference...I still wanted to tackle The Wake by Paul Kingsnorth, who by coincidence will be doing an event at the festival over the weekend.
I have also started to adorn my festival hat with frivols...
Team dovegrey are gathering, Fran H-B and Barbara arrived today and Curzon arrives with us tomorrow. Becky and her seven-year old daughter Evie will take on the knitting, the Happy Campers are tent-pitched, kitted out and running round already, and the Knit Angel and the Weatherman are installed and keeping busy.
We are ready.
