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

    Isn’t the festival owned/founded by the levellers? I think they play every year. Yeah it sounds good, bit like Kendal really in reference to stage and tent timings. I’ll give it some thought. Lucy I’d love to do them all! I truly would. That’s my retirement plan... by a little camper and just tour all summer. Thanx for the offer of contacting your buddies! Here’s me planning festivals and camping hols, I don’t even have the time off yet Best get it sorted seeing as they’re all paid for haha
  2. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Cheers mate. I’ve just had a scroll through it. Seems a chatty bunch! Still not convinced about it tho. Have you been before? Is there late night stuff going on?
  3. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    I do hope you will come along LucyLoo. It will be so much fun x
  4. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    No I haven’t been before, the IOW made it off limits and I probably wouldn’t have gone if I wasn’t camping in Weymouth straight after. There’s no way I could do that drive after a festival on my own. I did it from Larmer tree and it nearly killed me!! I also wanted to do Beautiful days after I visit Dee and Splodge but I don’t want to do it on my own. At least at Bestival I knew Georgie was going or I could join a solo group. Beautiful days is a lot smaller tho so not sure if they will have fb groups. I was also looking at Bearded Theory!! I’m off that week in May.
  5. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Morning all! Last night I booked Bestival. I’m actaully as excited about this as I would be for Glastonbury!! Currently researching Circus fancy dress.
  6. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Ok thanx Georgie. I’ll plan to go alone and if anything else happens it’s a bonus. Cheers lovely x
  7. Orbital?

    Worth it tho!!
  8. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Still the best dressed there Mr Crazy!! Did you have a good time? Would you do it again?
  9. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Morning all @lucyginger yay for looking into it. I’m very probably more than likely to go if I go alone. The beauty @naughtygeorgie is going to ask friends of hers if they mind if I bunk in their camp. Very excited. @mr gumby that all sounds delicious! I’m eating cold pizza for breakfast after being awake since 4am (dreaded night shift brain).
  10. Orbital?

    Hahaha!! Brilliant Just what the best nights are made of!

  12. Orbital?

    So how was it??? So jealous I'm in jail right now! Did S2H go with you?
  13. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Ah shucks Mr G... I think that's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me!! Made my eyes water a touch. Thanx Dude That sounds like an ace weekend Crazyfool. Are you taking any of your specially customised clothes? A few of my colleagues go to these Butlins weekends and they all say it's fab. Have fun mate!
  14. Bestival 2017

    That was a great read thanx Sean. I've never been to Bestival before but I'm coming down that weekend to camp in Weymouth for 11 nights so I think I may have to go.
  15. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Thank you Yog, Honestly, means a lot.
  16. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    As usual Yog you are a true gent. Kath doesn't yet feel guilt, she thinks everyone else is to blame for her predicament. I also don't feel guilt as I've carried her for a long long time, but now my attention needs to be with the children. I just wish she would sort herself out. It's heartbreaking tucking the kids into bed and they're crying for their mother.One of those things though, nothing much I can do except be there for them and listen to them. Thanx Lovely
  17. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hi @Yoghurt on a Stick, please feel free to bang on about your house... It's exciting for you. I know it's really not funny but I can't help but laugh at the image in my head of Mrs Yogs legs dangling through the ceiling . So yes, I can believe the house needs alot of work doing. That was a big move for you two! But it sounds like you have the perfect neighbour too, and at least you now feel safe in your new home. How is the local pub? I haven't really been anywhere Yog, my friend is a raving alcoholic and has lost everything, including her two girls, my godchildren! Problem is she won't admit she has a problem. I have recently been cleared by social services to have access to them and have them overnight so I'm trying to add a bit of normalcy to their lives.
  18. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hi Lovelies! Oh How I have missed you all. I am on night shift so have finally had time to read through the last 2 months of posts I have missed. Some very sad and some very funny comments. Hope everyone is doing ok. @vintagelaureate, hope your daughter continues to improve. Work will get easier in time. @Yoghurt on a Stick I have so missed reading your stories. You actually make me laugh out loud! Comedy genius!! Yayyyy @mr gumby, congrats on the new job and welcome back to adulthood! You musy be finding it strange after 5 years staying at home with Gumby Jr! And happy belated 40th to Mrs G and @shuttlep. @lucyginger do you fancy doing Bestival with me? I really want to go but don't want to go on my own. If I do go on my own would it be ok to come stay with you for a night on the Wednesday rather than the Friday as planned? Kepp smiling you gorgeously fabulous people x
  19. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    I do believe I've just had one of the best weekends of my life outside of glastonbury. The wedding was just beautiful... and bonkers. What a party. My body hurts from dancing like a lunatic. Windermere is such a fantastic place and the dome house is just awesome!! Joyce and Phil looked absolutely amazing, and they have the most loveliest family and friends. This won't be a weekend I'll forget any time soon. May your life together be full of happiness. It was so great to see @lucyginger, @ICGenie, @deebeedoobee, @pilton digger, @stuartbert two hats, Deb and Simon, Richard and JP. A real Glastonbury reunion. See most of you at boomtown!!

    My sister and I have been for afternoon tea today. The jam/cream debate continued. I say cream then jam, she said jam then cream. Now judge for yourselves... hers was a bit of a mess and mine was OCD tidy. @dizzymoo that's a fantastic result for your son! Congratulations to him! @lucyginger so sorry to hear you're going through real life shit. It is actually shit. I've had a shitstorm at work (literally!!) and dealing with an alcoholic friend and my close mate diagnosed with bowel cancer. Life isn't fair sometimes. Hugs to you lovely one. @Spacey, if I decide to go to Beautiful days would you fancy camping together? I really don't want to go it alone. Send me a message with your fb name and I'll add you. Thanx to the rest of you for the reviews. It does sound lovely!!
  21. VFestival 2017

    I guessed that too but I think it's rude of people to downvote others for their personal tastes. And the OP is a newbie. And I like to remind members that gold members can see who's downvoted.
  22. VFestival 2017

    why the downvote @rhg_99?
  23. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    I shall look for a jolly man in a colourful outfit if i do go! Oooh to be in Minorca... I'm at work on nights surrounded by the smell of urine and faeces!! You enjoy
  24. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Now that festival I'm very interested in Mr G! At least I think that's the one... Is it in Exeter? I think I may have to go there next year. I sort of have a plan coming together... Boomtown, camp in Weymouth, then off to Beautiful days.I can justify the drive then. Problem is I don't like doing these things alone so I need to find some company! Let us know how it goes please. How was beautiful Weymouth? My favourite restaurant in the world is there, Ming Wahs. It's family run and they are just so lovely.
