{ Festival! }

For my birthday Warren got us some tickets to the Reading Festival to watch Florence and the Machine. And that's happening tomorrow kids. So tonight we are off to a little town outside of Reading - where Warra has booked us into a "boat-hotel" on a river (free bicycle hire and all!). We were at the Reading Festival last year and it was epic. This year, I decided to make Warr a little festival survival pack - which I will give to him when he gets home from work.  In the pack so far - Photobucket
Face wipes - because "even though we aren't camping, these somehow feel appropriate". 
They are dusty and brilliantly-grimy. 
You should always be prepared. Photobucket
Yes. we neeed these. 
Photobucket Photobucket
We also neeeeeeed festival bling. I probably neeeeeeeeed this more than Warren.
The more neon, the more better. (wow that sentence, am i already drunk?)Photobucket Photobucket
"for your new purchases" - Warren will buy "festy-glasses".
We know this about him, because of the sunglasses addiction.
Other essential festival survival pack items include - 
a stash of small packs of tissues. Mainly essential for girls. You will need these. Trust me.
Family-size packs of gum.
Snacks for on the train.
Also packed in my bag is:
leopard print
neon everything
gumboots/wellies/rainboots (the dust, the mud, the potential rain - you'll want dry feet at 2am)
and a bajillion rolls of film.
I decided to wrap them all up in magazine pages, because -

  • its a festival
  • bright and random is the way forward
  • magazines are awesome
  • i have no wrapping paper

I made a "Reading Fest" gift bag - which was so easy to make even your granny could do it. But more on that another time.

I sealed it with some of the awesome ribbon that was given to me by (which you can read about in this post)

We are leaving tonight on a one times train outta here. So very excited to see Florence, The Shins,  Miike Snow and Kasabian headlining and the rest of the line up here.

I like the wrapping it in magazine pages. I once wrapped a wedding gift in black because it was all I had when I lost the proper paper, but it looked pretty cool with some string. Have the best time tomorrow - say Hi to Florrie for us!

Replaced the cartridge, very same issue with
grinding. Don't know exactly what to do due to the fact that its 6 years aged, and no real repair work spots. I could tear it apart and check out it. Many thanks.

To begin with, I'm an Indian as well as a woman. My grandfather practised twice daily, each day to stay alive. So yoga is theoretically within my blood. Any comment about your clothing option is insane. No person can do advanced postures wearing loads of clothing. Secondly, as a teacher, just how can your students determine what that you are expecting them to do without having to be able to see your system and mimic the action?
I don't know you
but everyone that's met you where I practice has nothing but positive items to say with regards to you. People should pay more care about their small minds than your small shorts.
Lastly, stop your explanations and apologies. Any effort to react removes you skill to act along with far too much to accomplish educating people about their physical practice. You could possibly pissed a number of people off by doing something they didn't during hindsight well unless you intended to hurt or exploit
them, this is the joy of people. There are only twice you happen
to be criticized (1) when you are doing a problem (2) when doing something right.

Don't know just what to do due to the fact that its 6 years aged, and no genuine repair work places. I may tear it apart and consider it. Thanks.
