I got myself into a bit of a tizzy the last few weeks, wondering where I was going to get all the money from
£300 for the edfringe programme, £150 for flyers, £125 for an advert in the Free Festival programme, to say nothing of actually living there for the month
I’m also taking my girlfriend and 6 month old baby daughter with me this year, so that’s added expense, and less flat share options, I mean I know she sleeps through the night, but potential flat sharers probably think I’m lying. Especially if they have kids of their own, judging by the gleeful way most parents greeted my excitement when I first found out Luci was on her way. “welcome to the club”, “you’ll never sleep again”, “now your life is over” etc etc made me wonder why these people ever had kids in the first place.
Anyway, like the fool that I am I’ve booked us into a campsite, yep, a campsite, with a 6 month old, lets hope its warm, in Edinburgh, in Scotland, by the north sea. Don’t think I’ll tell the girlfriend just yet (!)
Looked into funding options, like the arts council, but it would take me till august to wade through their application form.
Then decided to buy loads of free booze to flog, using Tescos “double the difference” campaign, but they’ve sussed me out and dropped the campaign. Actually that’s probably more to do with people sussing them out, as being more expensive than they try to let on!!
So am going with a 2 minute video on wefund.com and running a “singles night” instead.
That’s all for now folks
