I think I’ve come to terms with the fact that I won’t be confused with Kate Bosworth in teeny lace shorts and delicate daisy-chain jewellery but I’d rather not look like a mum-on-a-school-trip, all sturdy shoes and SPF 50. Obviously the weather is a tricky little fiend, we could be basking in record-breaking June temperatures or using our sleeping bags as a second jacket if a frost sets in. I can’t even envisage the packing complications if heavy rain is predicted…please god no.
Toiletries – thank the lord for the holiday section in Boots which stocks a mini-everything. Toothpaste, shampoo and face wash can all be purchased in petite. Don’t forget these other must-haves:
Avene Cicalfate – antibacterial cream for sunburn, spots, bites, scratches….
Cheap sunglasses – you’ll break/lose them. Leave the posh ones at home:
Rehydration salts – hangover remedy:
Antihistamine – could come in handy if you’re a city-dweller and find you’ve got an aversion to country air and/or grass pollen:
Most things you can trade with friends so don’t pack for every eventuality. One thing is certain, Glastonbury will be more trainers and backpacks than hair stylists and vintage couture. Phew.
