  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    They're Taunton lads, aren't they? I had hoped to catch their set at John Peel, but sadly my litter picking shift ended giving me only about 10 minutes to get from pyramid to JP before they finished, so I opted to go back to the crew field for a shower. Hope to see them in the future, if they return. How did their set go? I've been to a few early doors sets at the JP, and they've varied massively, from a small but euphoric crowd, to a big but unimpressed one!

    Hi Yog, I don't know if you remember, but quite some time ago, I mentioned having made some compilation CDs of what I call 'goosebumps' songs. Songs that just make the hairs on my arms and neck stand on end. This was one of them. It's one of a small number of tracks where I think the cover is even better than the original. I particularly like the interweaving of Van Morrison's Into the Mystic. On a very strange day, the fact you have posted it has given the song an extra poignancy. I heard this morning that Mrs gumby's dad had passed away, and have spent the day at the hospital, and then at my in-laws house, doing what I can to support her, her mum, her sisters, and the grandchildren. It's been a shit of a day, but that song has brought a tear to my eye, in a good way. Thank you, Yog, thanks very much.

    I like your style! Outwardly respectable, but subversive underneath. Nice one!

    I'm getting there, thanks Lucy. I'm also back at work tomorrow, at 5 a.m. Then I've got to do parenting while Mrs gumby goes to work, so I guess I'll just have to suck it up and get on with it! Hope your first day back goes ok

    I'm too ill to finbarr. Sick twice in a week, takes the piss, really...

    Thanks Sharon, It's well and truly gone now, but I'll try to remember that for next time

    It was actually a CD of the new Stereophonics album, along with a voucher for tickets to see them in June. She's wanted to see them for years, but never has.

    Thanks, Yog. Started last night, and I've spent nearly all of today in bed. Missed Xmas dinner, but hoping there'll be some leftovers tomorrow, and I'll be able to manage some. Dragged myself up for long enough to open some presents, and watch others open theirs, but now I'm going back to bed. Made Mrs gumby cry when she opened one of her parcels, which was touching. Hope you've all had a fun day.

    Well, what a wonderful time to be hit by gastroenteritis. Hurrumph!

    I remember, many years ago, going to Sunday school, and really enjoying the song about Gladly, the cross-eyed bear.

    I have also been hit by a plague this week, but I had the joy of norovirus (or something similar), rather than flu. Felt like crap, but just about back to normal now. Two more shifts to get through before Xmas, both starting at 4 a.m, but then I'll be off until 3rd January Hope everyone who's under the weather gets sorted before Monday, and you all have a fab Christmas!

    We're about 50-60 miles almost directly west of lucy, just near the point where Somerset, Dorset and Devon meet. Not sure about camping in Weymouth next summer yet, but I'd say there's a good chance. It'll be in August if we do, as the farm we visit only does camping for that one month each year.

    You could do with working on your sweet talk technique, too, but I suppose I'll let you off this once.

    I'm not a machine, you know, Yog! I can't be expected to just jump up and finbarr you at the drop of a hat, whenever the mood takes you. I admit that I enjoy a good finbarr now and again, but I'm just saying it would be nice if you could go to the trouble of building up to it sometimes. You know, some candles, maybe a nice meal or something, rather than just expecting finbarrs on tap, without any effort on your part. I think you need to reconsider your approach to this particular area of our relationship, before I'm forced to start looking for someone who is willing to earn my finbarrs! *Flounces dramatically from the room, in the style of Blanche DuBois*
