Festival madness

Well, it’s been a crazy time since we arrived at Wickham festival early yesterday morning. We’ve had a bit of a mud-fest and it’s caused total chaos. Although it’s been a bit challenging, it’s been great to be part of the event so far. I just wish I’d brought a pair of wellies and not (previously white) trainers. These have raised a few smiles and chuckles with the event staff.

There have been various mishaps, the worst being the main stages not being opened due to the heavy rain and electrics. This has been difficult and disappointing for the staff and some of the vendors located nearby. Then there were the loos that wouldn’t flush all day and filled up (gobsmackingly disgusting) because the waste tanker got stuck in the mud. Eventually they flushed at around 5 in the afternoon.

Here’s a couple of photos: the motorhome that got stuck and had to be towed out by a tractor as well as a digger (far left). Today when the sun came out – a great shot across the venue. It’s a really lovely festival – nice atmosphere and very friendly. It seems many of the people who work here have been coming for years.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
