Reading Festival 2012

Had a wicked week volunteering at Reading Festival 2012!
We were working on the campsites, stewarding and looking out for fires etc.

Went with 7 of us, were on the same shift pattern but on different shifts - wasn't too bad though 'cos made friends with everyone on our shifts.

Saw Paramore + The Cure on Friday night...
Were walking along, heard these (Me First and the Gimme Gimmes) so went into the tent and they were wicked! Did rocky covers of songs you completely wouldn't expect - Tomorrow from Annie, Somewhere Over The Rainbow and I Believe I can Fly.
Then after them we went over the Justice who were siik aswell! Have a video of DANCE on YouTube

And one advantage of working on the campsites... We were allowed to recycle all the free booze + take it home with us ;)

Growers; Lots of boys!

I seem to be good at hatching and growing cockerels!
Theres 2 Silver Birchen pekins, 2 Cotswold Olives (Araucana crosses), 2 Araucanas and 3 Frizzle Silkies; 2 of which I think are boys.
This cute little Quigley baby (Frizzle Silkie) is going to live with one of my customers and 10 hybrid girls... Will need a couple months growing before moving in with his wives though!
