IT’S BEEN SNOWING. And as expected the nation is completely falling apart. People are sleeping on motorways, there’s no diesel left, and Toys R Us is closing down. Which does seem a bit extreme. Norway gets snow all the time and they still have toy shops.
Oxford has got away with it mostly, but even as an exiled northerner I will admit that it’s been cold.
What better time to look forward to another soul-stirring summer at festivals including:
(And plenty more yet to be confirmed!)
We’re still there. We moved a few hundred yards round the corner from our original spot. We wanted a better view.
Enjoying a well-earned break. He did too much yoga in Sri Lanka and his hip is hanging off. He’s now in New Zealand paying £10 for a mocha. Hopefully he’ll have some good stories for the
November has almost been and gone, and as you’d expect it’s been quite lively for everyone’s favourite Amigos.

Our veteran van Deborah has had a tough time. Somehow, someone failed to see a huge, white, long-wheel-base Mercedes Sprinter parked on
There is more to street food than Citroen H Vans and pizzas named after wrestlers.
Actually there isn’t, and for the most part that’s what makes it so easy. Anyone can start a street food business.

3pm – Set off to Hampton Court. Event finishes at 6. I’m well ahead of the game.
5.30pm – Still sat in the van. M25 has had me right off.
6.30pm – Arrive
