Live blogging from Milford 2017: Tuesday 12th September – 9.45 p.m.

Suyi Davies Okungbowa

Suyi smallMorning starts off quite wet, then suddenly gives way to this beautiful amount of sun we’re not expecting. Some take this opportunity to slink away to Mordor and return without any Gandalf Eagles (looking at you Vaughan and Dolly). Some, like me, try to enjoy the warmth before the skies change mood again (and they do flip into the Darth Vader of skies before evening).

Crits start earlier because we’ve got six today. Contrary to our expectations that it’s gonna be gruelling, I find it even more thoughtful than yesterday. It seems Milford gets better by the day; if this goes on, I could end up on a real high on Friday, and Saturday could easily find me experiencing premature withdrawal symptoms. Cue tears and wailing and clinging to the pillar outisde the Plas.

My story’s up for crits tomorrow. Here’s to feeling the same way afterwards.
