Can you believe it's T in the Park time again. I scanned this photo from a leaflet we received this week to let you see the size the festival is. It has grown and grown. we are expecting over 1000,000 festival goers. All our roads around Balado will be closed from Thursday till Monday afternoon, it does make getting about a bit difficult. It is strange all this money coming into our little town and yet there is no money for plants for our flowerbeds in the centre town a few dozen plants are not all that expensive. During the winter the council has been round a dug up all the shrubberies to save on maintenance and just left them empty and bare it all looks very sad and this is just the start of our cutbacks. There has been a big furore as a fully mature beech hedge was chopped down by mistake. It will be replanted in the Autumn but how long will it take to replace what we had.
I seem to have deviated from the subject of the festival Stuart and I may try to go out on the back roads to get some pictures to show you but it is very difficult the last time we went near we were stopped by the police and that was not very nice you would have thought we were trying to get in free God forbid.
In my last entry about my latest walk I was asked if it was wheelchair friendly yes it is a wee bit of an incline but no steps and there is a shorter walk taking in just one loch. Hope this clears up this for you.
Think that's about it for today so till next time take care and I hope the weather stays dry for everybody coming for the festival.
