yes (assuming its Camp Bestival) we are going too. Thinks a mumsnet meetup would be a good idea as long as we can all find each other!

Crunchie Sun 13-Jul-08 17:46:22

Well I went to my mates house to discuss things to take and it was
1) Tent (massive 5m bellone!!)
2) Bunting
3) Rugs

She has style thats for sure

We are alos discussing what cocktails can be made up in advance and decanted into diet coke bottles to transport them

Long island iced tea....

thelollipoplady Sun 13-Jul-08 17:57:49

... and is anyone dressing up? DH keeps pointing me in the direction of Naughty Alice dresses and Queen of Tarts outfits hmm

Crunchie Sun 13-Jul-08 18:18:44

Well DD's are taking
short
cut off jeans
tshirts/jeans which have been 'glittered'
Spanish skirt
fairy wings/wand/tiara
scarves
top hat

I am not dressing up specifically, just taking dresses/shorts/jumpers/wellies/crocs.

Problem with long island iced tea is that it needs coke in it which may go flat after 24 hours, I am thinking woo woos, or 'juice' based drinks

We will be the ones in the MASSIVE tent, 2 small tents inc cath kidston one, with 6 kids, 4 adults, and bunting oh and rugs

If you google 'Camp Bestival Map' it takes you to a map of the site that's really useful to have

The website is virtually impossible to use for information so we resorted to googling

Sophie .. do you know anything about parking? I have huge concern that we might park and be trapped in for the 3 days which concerns me as there's a chance that we might have to leave on sunday .. are they sorting the parking so that you can remove your car when you need to do you know?

Twiglett Wed 16-Jul-08 08:35:42

we're not dressing up, because we are grown-ups grin

<visions of oops wandering round and licking random women just to check>

sophiewd Wed 16-Jul-08 16:22:35

Twig - will check for you later or tomorrow and get back to you.

Slightly worried as main stage is not up yet. We willbe the ones with the big 40 year old Silver cross pram.
