I went out a couple of weeks ago to buy my very own firework kit box. After a trawl of a couple of DIY stores, I was still empty handed :( I was struggling to find the right shape and size of tool box, and the few I did find were too flimsy for sitting on (a very useful part of having a box with you on shows).
Eventually, I arrived at Homebase. Here I found a really good selection and tried out sitting on them in the store to check they were sturdy enough (I'm not weird - honest):
My very own...
What will I be storing in my box? Well, it's a bit sparse at the moment...
Knee pads, eye protection goggles (I also have a visor on my helment), headtorches, nips (wire cutters), sharpie pen and rigging gloves (not pictured). These essential pieces of kit will also be joined by spare warm layers of clothing, a couple of hats and some sugary/cake-y snacks.
This weekend is the busiest of the fireworks season (5th November and all that jazz), so expect radio-silence on the blog until the middle of next week when I will finally have caught up on sleep and warmed up!
PS - In other news, the camera which I briefly dumped in the sea during last weekend's sailing adventure does not seem to have survived the experience! I left it to dry for four days, but that obviously wasn't enough!
