  1. eFestival Music Awards 2017

    Just realised I put Future Islands down for best Glasto performance this year, when I meant to put Flaming Lips. It's been a long week! (Future Islands were bloody good, though!)

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

    It's a company called PetSafe, which sounds most reassuring to me. Presumably, if a small domestic animal takes it upon itself to attack your flaps, you can be confident of being protected. Not sure if they do any other body parts, though!

    Morning all! Apropos of nothing, apart from the fact it's Friday, I thought I'd share this with you. My first job this morning was to fit a new pet door, and I couldn't help sniggering a bit when I saw this in the instruction booklet!

    Thanks Lucy, it was a good day. I've now finished my first shift in store too, and think it'll be really good for me. It might take a while to get used to shop work again, compared to parenting, but I'm really looking forward to it @pauladam, hope your ankle mends soon. On the plus side, if there's any time of year when zombie shuffling is de rigeur, it's now!

    Hello! Although, in fact, I've already left! We finished a bit early, so I'm just leaving Salisbury, having changed trains there.

    Evening all Spain was lovely, warm and sunny. Bit of a shock when we got back to Gatwick! All the unpacking and washing is done, and gumby jr is back at school. I'm off to Southampton tomorrow, for a training day for my new job. Leaving the house at 5.30 in the morning, so I'm off to bed now! Hope everyone is doing well, night night!

    Off to Spain tomorrow, so thought I'd pop in and wish you all a very good week. Not sure what t'internet will be like where we're staying, so I may not catch up with things until I get back. Cheerio for now!

    Who fancies some port at Glasto '19, then? Should be ready for bottling around February, then a year or so to mature, should be just right!

    To be fair, the poo train's engine is seriously bangin'

    You, sir, are a legend! I can (vaguely) recall a similar episode that happened to me one year at Glasto. The year is a little bit hazy, but I think it was probably 2014, as that's the only time I've been solo, and I don't remember having to endure any withering looks of pity and embarrassment the next morning. It may well have been on my way back to my tent after the efests meet. I was ambling through the market areas, somewhere between William's Green and Pyramid, I think, when I heard what sounded to me like some catchy electro tune. I paused, to let my brain absorb it, and found my limbs moving in time, so I went with it. As I was a little worse for wear, it wasn't long before I needed to pause and get my breath back, and that's when I noticed the refuse truck reversing behind me.

    Ooh, we just had a power cut! Got the house lit by candles just before the lights came back on. Bit disappointed now, it looked rather nice! Ophelia seems to be causing a bit of a stir Thanks, @dizzymoo. I'm going to be working for Lidl. Not particularly glamorous, and unlikely to make me rich, but it'll be good to interact with adult humans for a change! You're quite right, by the way, a tomato is a berry, as are aubergines and cucumbers. Don't think I'd make wine out of any of them, though!

    I'm also going Iberian! It's my mother in law's 70th next month, but she decided that rather than having a party, she'd like a family holiday. We've booked a villa about an hour east of Malaga, for the in laws, their 3 daughters plus partners, and the 5 grandchildren. Should be good timing for me, a chance to relax and refresh before I start my new job a few days after we get back Whereabouts on Mallorca are you headed? Only been there once myself, to Cala Marçal, but it was a lovely trip.
