When the lovely people at Home Bargains heard we were going to Glastonbury Festival they sent us some goodies to take along…
The Flower sunglasses were gladly received and worn around the festival – definitely not something I’d wear usually but were great for the festival feel and at £1.99 it doesn’t matter if drunkenly you drop them on the floor and break them! (I didn’t do that of course!) A friend of mine loved them and was going to go buy herself a couple of pairs.
We immediately packed the Fold up rucksack so we could carry down our things each day but unfortunately we overloaded it with
cider drinks! and the handles came unstitched, whoops. But was a fab cheap bag which is better suited to carrying your ponchos and light items but for the price of 99p is amazing! We will be going to purchase a least a couple for future use. What we did use for carrying our drinks down was the Festival cooler bag £2.49 which I loved! It got absolutely covered in mud and when it was empty on the last night my hubby tried to persuade me to chuck it away but I refused and carried it to Shangri-La and Arcadia and it came home with us still covered in mud! And still in perfect usable condition, once clean!
The Camping enamel bowl, 89p and plate – I didn’t actually get round to using as I kinda forgot to pack food as well as
alcohol drinks! But looks a better choice than the plastic ones I bought last year which have gone a bit misshapen! So think I’ll go get a few more to have a set for the family.But I did use the 12pc Cutlery set 99p for making coffee and pasta mug shot things (that I did remember!) and at one point we bought a loaf of bread and some butter for the small sum of £5!! And managed to make toast!
Baby wipes, 59p were well used for wiping mud from ourselves and everywhere else!! The poncho is a bargain for £1.29 as when it rains at a festival they charge anything from £3-£6 for one! I had a lovely pink unicorn one so didn’t use this one and when my hubby did need one he didn’t bring it down on the day! hence knowing the prices you can pay!
A couple of other things we didn’t use were the Camping Pillow 79p as we took our own pillows from home – that’s the luxury of space taking a camper but definitely a must for packing light if your tenting it and the Foldable water bottle 79p was fab but we tended to take bottles of drink down with us so we could just chuck bottles away as the less to carry the better!
Well at the end of this post we sound like alcoholics! In hindsight we drank very little and only in the evenings but had to pack each time to carry down for the whole day and tried not to spend money on alcohol down there at £4.50 a pint!
