Well… there you go then matey


Today was the last day of the festival so our broadcast finished about 2 hours ago.

Today has been a rocker. I woke up and got stung by some little fucking twat in my shoe. To be fair i was in it’s territory (In a field in Cheltenham). I squashed it mainly because it scared me and insects don’t usually bite me and it was spooky. I think i woke up with shock this morning too. I was cold, not just normal cold, i mean sick cold. Really horrible shaky so i put my coat on, I still kind of feel cold in a way. its like im a bit shivery inside.
I had a bit of a rest and then helped Robin bring the tent down. We blitzed that one. I was ace at getting the tent in the bag. Boom. 
We went to the studio for Robin to do his show but i was feeling really rubbish about lots of things. I think i needed some alone time anyway (I do this sometimes) and probably could do with some sleep. All my internals were achy after tearing it up at the headphones disco last night. I didn’t stop dancing at all. So with the tiredness and feeling ill i had lots of things in my brain that needed extinguishing, like the songs i couldn’t get out my head, being worried about silly things and needed lots of water, some lunch. the plan was to recover and come back later for the show. On the way back i felt really weak. I think i was going to spew the world out, or crawl home like i was missing in a desert. 
I got “home” and put a film on that i was going to fall asleep to but it was so interesting i stayed up. It was about Joe Meek and i got too into it, which resulted in some weird dreams including riding on busses and a manager who had offered me cakes as a trademark screwjob trait. This wasnt good sleeping material so have i got news for you was popped on.
When i re-woke i finished Have i got news for you and then made my way back to the festival. not much happened after that. Pete Harper (From bands Danny and the bachelors and Thrill Collins) repeated my name a number of times again (Which im pretty sure has something to do with the X-factor) and interviewed the rest of them.
I then went to the final show of Wychwood 87.7 FM where it was Dan VS Alex. 
I was thinking about sticking around for the headphone disco but i was feeling a bit ill. I went back and walked. back. So now im just laying on the bed. it hurts to move, but i should eat something and sleep. If i could discribe today in weather form – dry but cloudy with patches of rain which clear up near the end of the day.

Im feeling a bit down though at the moment. I’m not sure why, its not to do with the radio ending. But its probably because i want sleep. I’m sure ill be better in the morning. im all cold again now, so im gona wrap myself in everything. Night yo!
