and so the story goes...
Me & my friend Kelly got in to work last Friday morning, neither of us planning on going to V Festival. Kelly's boyfriend was there with his friends, as seemed to be everyone else! With no plans for the weekend, and the knowledge that:
1. Kids in Glass Houses were there (one of our favourite bands!)
2. Bruno Mars was there (who Kelly really wanted to see again, after seeing just a few nights earlier!)
3. Lostprophets were there, Kelly had never seen them, and I saw them twice in 2007 and they were amazing!
So...we both mentioned wishing we were going, briefly discussed the prospect of buying tickets...then our hopes were crushed! There was just ONE single ticket left on sale...yes, one lonely ticket! Sadness set in :(
We considered our options, now desperate to go! Risk finding a tout there? Buy on Ebay and pray they arrive and are genuine?
Eventually we called a ticket broker with great feedback, and the deal was made, 2 tickets for Sunday at Weston Park :)
7am the next morning I was woken from my sleep on the sofa (I fell asleep there the night before!) by LOUD banging on the door, I wondered what was going on, then thought TICKETS!! So, in shame, I ran and answered the door, in the day before's clothes and make-up (gross!) and the tickets were in my hand!
The tickets were genuine, HURRAH!
So now, here is my little review and some photos (including OOTD) :)
