“Promise me you’ll always remember you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” Christopher Robin to Pooh – “Winnie The Pooh” A.A. Milne

Unfortunately I am not nearly as brave as I pretend to be, and strength depends on the time of day and well, how smart is questionable and dependent on Redbull and vodkas consumed.

And so I took on Sonisphere with a Redbull and Vodka in hand, a very confusing tent and a sports car that would probably get stuck in the mud.

First up was a run. Gates open and then it was a quest to be first on the front stage barrier to be squashed on there for the next eight hours. Some say I have an odd sense of what counts as fun. I never carry a handbag but on these occasions a girl has to make an exception. It proves useful to stuff an eight hour survival kit in, poly rain macs, cameras, spare battery, some other crap, lip stick and the most important item, large bottles of ready mixed Redbull and vodka, it takes the sting out of being speared on a barrier for eight hours.

Did I mention we were also in full Rocky Horror outfits!
