England 4th of July 2000.
On July 3rd Ozzy & I arrived at the hotel, Tony’s house in the middle of the night. We went there a week earlier to let them know we would arrive at midnight. I wanted to go to Rock Werchter festival in Belgium on July the 3rd. but Mike told me that Newquay would be better, he would also book an hotel in my name. Choice was easy made after this offer, so No Rock Werchter then.
When we arrived, I texted Nell (My Dutch friend who I know fromt he Colin Farrell Fansite) to let her know we arrived. She was there with 3 friends from America. Alicia, Sydney & Kristin. I also text Stephan (another Dutch friend, who I met at Rock en Seine festival and Amsterdam) to let him know we arrived, he brought his friend Rik
and I let Laurie know we arrived, she was there with Laurence. (Both Belgium ladies)
July 4th 2009
The next morning, Stephan, Rik, Ozzy & I met up for breakfast at about 11ish at Marble Arch. After searching for a place that was open at that time of the day we found an Italian place. We sat there for a while until the doors opened of the Festival.
When Ozzy & I decided to go to the festival, Stephan & Rik went shopping, Rik won money a couple of days ago, he spend it in London, good boy!! Ozzy & I checked out the festival, We sat down at 1 of the pick-nick tables and 4 people asked if they could join, of course they could! Only Kelly, Ben, Kirsty & James never left. They thought the same way about us LOL They were hping that we found them annoying, but we didn’t really haha.
Time for Paul Oakenfold…. but on what stage did he play? ow OK… 2nd stage, just as The Streets… Oh my it was so warm in the tent… we left. We needed a drink. Then after not having any phone connection for a long time…. I received a message of Stephan, Nell & Laurie at the same time…
Nell was sitting under a Butterfly wing. We went over there to meet up,
and I told Stephan & Laurie to meet up with us under that wing. After a few minutes we were there all together… sitting in the sun, chatting a bit, relaxing a bit, eating & drinking…
Until 3 hours before the Streets would start, Ozzy & I decided to go to 2nd Stage, so did Stephan, Rik, Laurie & Laurence. Nell and her 3 friends decide to come later. It was very warm in the tent, I still decided to try to get to the front… It wasn’t too warm there it was actually OK…. but I was the only one who did that.
The others didn’t believe me. They joined me just before the Streets would start… then they felt it themselves that it wasn’t too warm up front… I could have told them, “Can you help me to get to the front”? No I can’t. Where were you when I needed help?
Anyways it’s time for The Streets…
What a great gig again!!! I loved the show!! Thanks Rod for the bottles of water!! No “Blip on a Screen” tho… but the gig was brilliant!!
Time to go back to the butterfly, to meet up with Nell and her friends again. The butterfly wings were all in front of the main stage… not very close but we could see the stage, so we joined Dizzee Rascal & Basement Jaxx there.
Ted promised to meet up for a drink. The festival was called O2 Wireless, but there was no connection at all…. interesting… so my message wouldn’t sent, things happen for a reason, maybe it just shouldn’t have happened.
Laurie told me that Laurence wanted to meet Ted, but why did Laurence not tell me she did?! Glad we did not meet up with Ted, I got to know Laurence a lot better and found out that it was actually Laurie who wanted to meet him. Sad to use Laurence’s name for this.
What a great festival!!
Laurie & Laurence joined us for the walk, their hotel was 1 street closer then our hotel.
Sunday July 5th
We went home again. And saw a tweet from Ted.
