Life is not a festival 1

Well, alackadaddy, I’m on the road again.

The previous night saw the end of what seemed endless work stress. But it was liberally seasoned with emotional trauma and alcohol. I know I’m supposed to be going to the Small World festival in Kent and I am pretty sure I sorted out a lift the night before but I was too drunk to remember.

You can see in the photo all I need to travel light and do gigs: a tent, sleeping bag, busking amp, guitar and microphone with stand. Sorted.

It’s so heavy on my back though. I feel like I’m about to perform a one-man musical martyrdom operation.

I decide to jump into a cab and go round to my mate Rowan’s who said he would give me a lift. Or did he? I wasn’t sure. The dreaded booze….

Two minutes from his house, he rings me on my mobile.

“Cosmo, you ready? We’re off!”

Festival magic has begun
