Mrs Big Wig is on the case

As you know I spent the weekend at the Cornbury Music Festival, and as you also know, being a proper doughnut I lost my camera with all my pictures on it. So, being the resourceful type, I decided to contact the festival organisers and see if my camera had been handed in. I don't know how I managed it, but I ended up being put through to Mrs Big Wig, the top honcho of the Cornbury Festival. Oh yeh, I mix in the circles.

"Hey, aren't you the big boss of the festival?" I asked her after recognising her name.

"Yes, I am certainly in charge of putting everything together," she replied.

"Bloody brilliant festival," I said, "best organised one I have ever been to, and you can be sure I am gonna be returning with a whole load of newbies next year."

I could virtually hear her blushing down the phone, "you think so?" she asked, "that is lovely of you to say."

"The provision of portable toilets was particularly noteworthy," I added, and then immediately sensed that I hadn't homed in on her personal piece de resistance.

"Thank you," she replied somewhat tersely, "and how is it can I help you?"

"Well, I was just wondering if a pink Casio camera had been handed into lost property?" I asked, still swaying from the fact that I was talking to someone with the ability to attract the biggest bands in the country to her festival.

"Tell you what, I will be getting a 'lost property' report first thing tomorrow, and I will have a look and see if your camera is on there. If it is, I will give you a call," she replied.

Cool. Mrs Big Wig was looking for my camera. Given that she is in charge of organising the Cornbury Festival, if anyone has camera-finding superpowers, it will be her.

'Why are you banging on about Mrs Big Wig and your camera?' I hear you cry.

Simple. I have decided that I am not going to do any posts on the Cornbury Festival until it has been confirmed that my camera has been either found, or definitely gone forever.


  1. I will write to David Cameron immediately and get him on the case as far as the litter in my street is concerned. Thanks for your tips on going straight to the top. (Hope the camera arrives soon.)

  2. It's the only way to go Fran - straight to the top, no messing about!
