2015 can get the f*%@ out

2015-new-year

 

It’s that time of year again when we say ‘goodnight’ to the old, and ‘leave the curtains closed’ in the morning (afternoon) of the new.

2015 has had it’s ups, downs & horizontals but once more tis the time for new beginnings, so in the words of Bill Keane:

 

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, which is why we call it the present.”

 

…that being said, remember when partying over New Years eve that water is your friend, guzzle down a load of the stuff during the night to help avoid a pain-filled spinner beginning to the year, like the people in the pic below. Ouch!

The most important thing to know at the Notting Hill Carnival

notting-hill_freakdeluxe-co-uk

Carnival is almost upon us, 2 days (actually 2.3 days) of steel pans, colourful costumes and dancers embarrassing policemen, a brilliant tradition.

Now you might be thinking that the most important info to have at carnival is a map, so you can find your way around, you’re wrong, sort of. Perhaps it’s knowledge of the weather, so you don’t get caught out in another freak hail storm, you’re incorrect, kinda. Or maybe it’s updated travel info, nope nope no…but yeah. The most important thing to know while at carnival is where the toilets are, especially if you’re a woman who doesn’t like squatting in the street, or if you have young children.

The Annual Notting Hill Carnival Celebrations Take Place

Lovely spot for a snog.

There’re always a number of portaloos dotted around, which is handy in an emergency, however the thought of using them is only slightly better then pissing in a bush. Regardless it’s good to know where they are, along with the businesses and homes in the area that will let you use their toilets for a small fee.

Below is a map of all the confirmed toilet stops in the area, we will continue to update the map as and when we receive new details.

data=gHhPpPhmymHch7LaKBV9MmedCvD946jj8S8poI_nXKRvNdK2-evNbANoDgAmtXQy7jow499mYdj4YYOU_YIQYaDmBa9bclABI8acfpM

 

We would also recommend carrying some wet wipes, hand cream, the smallest purse/wallet you can find, minimal electronics & a plastic bag that can double as an umbrella. You’d be amazed at how much some households charge for a square of toilet paper!

If this map helps to prevent just one person from wetting themselves, or saves at least one front door from being pee’d on then our work was worth it…we live in hope.

Have a brilliant time at carnival, stay safe and stay within 5mins of a toilet

StreetFest 2014, Fish Island East London

StreetFest Scene from 2012

I love April and May for their many Bank Holidays, days for rest and recuperation or partying madness. If the latter is more your thing then may I recommend StreetfFest.

A day of live music, street dance, graffiti art, eating, sport and even a beach cocktail bar (I know where I’ll be spending the majority of my day) fun and frolics are bound to be had. What’s that I hear you say, you have kids and there’s no way you’ll find a babysitter in time, no problem children are welcome too.

Starting at 1pm till 11pm you can drive to the venue or, as I’ve just found out and am extremely excited by, the event organizers have arranged a shuttle bus service to & from Fish Island from Stratford Station, starting from 12.30pm for £2 each, that has to be better then paying £50 an hour for parking…I may have exaggerated just a little.

You can also shop and get a make over, so if you were thinking street dance and cocktails are for you think again.

Oh one more thing Goldie and Ms Dynamite are headlining, I don’t know about you but I love Goldie, if for no other reason than the guy is fun as hell.

There’re of course lots of other events taking place in London on New Year’s Eve, but I can’t do all the work for you now can I!

Whatever your plans remember to have fun, be safe, drink lots of water before going out (I hear that helps stop you getting too drunk too quickly, or just don’t drink too much) and have a great New Year, see you in 2013.
