  1. Have that at Alton Towers and you would make a mint. As long as people have their flying legs on
  2. Off topic but I have a Jimmy Saville tale. During Operation Yew tree, or whatever, they tried to see if Saville had abused at other hospitals etc. One that came up on their radar was the hospital I had done my nurse training, De La Pole Hospital. I was mortified to think that he may have fiddled his way in and that did leave me affected even though I could not recall him visiting. The hospital has been demolished and with it many of the records but most of those interviewed could not remember him visiting. Barnard House was the childrens unit at the time and it was closely guarded within the hospital, in the sense that people stayed away but an eye was kept on the kids, and all the staff had experience with kids. Anywho it was an all clear but for a brief moment I felt ashamed and a little sick.
  3. Who is Louis Walsh??? I had to seriously Google him. The search engine btw not a euphamism.
  4. I watched Westworld the other day. Fucking immense is all I can say about it.
  5. 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
  6. I am expecting a letter soon telling me how much of this 350 million a week I am entitled to.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. double post.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
