  1. It has been a wee while since I have looked at the boards and I have just tended to dip in and out. Times have been grim, like getting evicted and having a really bad period of depression and self harm, and I decided to keep myself to myself. However I now have a computer and I am feeling well. Those that have followed my posts in the past will be pleased to note that I have a very busy house as I have 2 kids living here and the others are always staying over, As all the kids turned 18 the dynamic changed abd it looks like I am the parent they all look to when the chips are down. It would not have been here if it was not for the virtual support I got on here. There is no way I can quantify it, and Neil and Scottie really helped in letting me review festivals, but the opportunity to open up in a safe environment has meant the world to me Anywho, blah blah blah, I will be posting more
  2. I am expecting a letter soon telling me how much of this 350 million a week I am entitled to.
  3. After years of turmoil I have had my youngest staying over for Christmas. It's been 10 years and she has grown up but it was still great having four of them for a meal. Thanks to everyone for the support you have given me over the years.
  4. The over riding thing I have learnt is not to hold grudges. At various times someone is not talking to me but I always keep the door open. If we have a spat it is usually forgotten the next day. Life really is too short. I kicked my daughter out last year. It was the hardest thing I have ever done but when she got a council bedsit I went over and wired her cooker in and did other bits and bobs. I can't think of any situation that would ever stop me talking to them.
  5. Some parents just seem to be natural twats. I had an awful time with my mother. An example of her warped mind was in relation to my grandmother. They stopped talking to each other so we were forbidden to talk to her. We would get a good hiding if my mother found out which was particularly difficult as we only lived 5 doors away. Crazy times.
  6. The simple answer is space. A caravan and car take up more. Also the ground is sometimes not suitable for a caravan i.e. uneven and soft and can get stuck. Also access to the site may be unsuitable
  7. double post.
  8. One l. Festivalling can be broken down to festival-ling. A ling is a type of fish and I don't think you want to attract an audience of marine fish.
  9. I have had my youngest daughter to stay. After all the years of crap it is an absolute joy. She is now 17 and after 10 years of shite there seems to be some form of normality
  10. I just used fly killer instead of deodorant. I am not that annoyed as it seems to smell a little better. Still at least I will be fly free.
  11. I bought Go Set a Watchman a couple of weeks ago but have not started it yet. It's the prequel to To Kill a Mockingbird which is in my top 10 favourites and I don't want to be disappointed
  12. Not aimed at you but feeling guilt of money spent on booze is an early sign of a problem.
  13. A great amount. The people at 36 Degrees are normal people. People in Manchester have organised food convoys. I know a guy that used to drive his transit to Bosnia with aid supplies. But it does not have to be at an international level and can be just at a community level, say starting a collection for food banks. Charity begins at home.
  14. I fired it up last night as the instructions said give it a 2 hour burn to get a carbon black coat. But with what you said in mind I did ask the neighbours first.
  15. I know someone who fell into a dirt toilet/latrine. It was very unpleasant. I once knew someone so scared of our Sergeant Major he crapped himself on parade. He simply became known a Shit pants after that.
