Sunday 30th June
Windsor Championship show, or Hardrock Calling festival with The boss, Bruce Springsteen headlining at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium! Let me see! Oh yes, if I am quick and stupid can we do both in one day? !
Left home 7.20 am with a clean Farley, arriving at Home Park Windsor by about 8.45 am (£10 to park yikes! ) . He was entered in Post Graduate dog with 7 others. Well behaved but not in with a shout today. Packed bags and legged it home for Noon. Grab the first bite and drink of the day and then driven to Stratford by Jezz so I could have a snooze in the car!
Arrived Olympic site and seemed to wait ages whilst they sorted out car parking, and then a lengthy walk into the venue (the second long trek of the day). Enjoyed fabulous music , sunshine, amazing iconic scenery in sunset and snacks until late into the evening. the Boss is a legend and so much energy, I wish I had half of his! Whilst stuffing my face with a chicken curry wrap turned round to find Boris Johnson , London Mayor, plus crumpled suit and bike, immediately behind me. I resisted the temptation to take a picture.
Long walk back to car, and very long wait to try and get out of the venue, hit traffic outside of Wembley (Robbie concert finished at same time) , and home by 2am. Who says two into one doesnt go!
Thank you to Lynne for looking after the hairies for us, and making our outing possible.
I was raised with dogs always about the house. Cairn terrier, German shepherds, Belgian shepherd, Bull mastifffs, Dachunds, min poodles. As soon as I could - the search was on! What bred would suit me? Then I saw a shaggy dog - the rest is history!
