  1. Having an Actual Holiday.
  2. Sad news. And such a pity that their last 'home' gig is in Oxford's New Theatre. Seated. Rubbish. Should have been the Town Hall.
  3. These Anker ones are fab. I took two last year and they kept two iPhones going for a full week (Monday - Monday) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Upgraded-Anker-Generation-Panasonic-Technology/dp/B00D5T3QK4/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1477651120&sr=1-8&keywords=anker+portable+charger
  4. I used to be PA to a Director at my company, and she used to ask me to set up 'socialisation meetings' with other Directors so she could just, y'know, sit and tell them stuff. Otherwise known as 'a chat'. Business speak is w*nk.
  5. Mr P&P mentioned something about 'abroad' and 'beach'... I'll let him sort it out!
  6. It means 'we're going to butter up the Executive Committee by telling them how super duper this new project is, and once they think it's a no-brained we'll hit them with the cost benefit analysis that shows how much cash this shit is costing us'
  7. Tipis appear to be back on sale...
  8. Pablo Honey is my favourite Radiohead album.
  9. Mine's booked in perpetuity. My manager knows I would resign on the spot if I wasn't allowed the time off. The only downside is that I have two weeks booked off in June 2018 that I will have to fill somehow. A 'proper' holiday, perhaps.
  10. Definitely booking my train in advance. Saves a packet - as does buying a split ticket rather than a direct.
  11. A real loss to that part of the site - loooooong walk from the top of the Big Ground to the (virtually inaccessible due to mud) row of composters at the bottom or the long drops near the Kidzfield. I expect the flushers used too much water. I don't know why they didn't replace them with an equal number of composters though.
  12. Go to The Wood, preferably at night. It's gorgeous. Eat a Goan Fish Curry and drink some good cider. Spend at least half a day in the Theatre and Circus area, and especially spend some time with Bramble FM. See New York Brass Band, Mik Artistik, and at least one band you've never even heard of - they might be your new favourite act. If you're bored or not having fun, move on. Sit, not hover. Talk to strangers.
  13. The 'main' Cosy Camper is in the main markets - not far from the Meeting Point http://www.cosycamper.co.uk/festival/glastonbury/ Good on them for the Green Agreement. Let's hope purchasers stick to it so Ian the Worm doesn't have to make another video showing hundreds and hundreds of abandoned tents... There's Camplight too - pre-erected pitches at the bottom of Pennard Hill, although I think reviews are variable.
  14. Not too early. Never too early. I've had an infection in my face/jaw so it hurts to eat anything harder than porridge or soup right now, plus superstrong antibiotics have nuked my tastebuds. I've been fantasising about Goan Fish Curry, and Manic Organic breakfast specials all week...
  15. I've emailed the charity organiser to let her know I'm happy to work and booked the time off work. I'll be without MrP&P next year as he doesn't want to go (epic mud combined with litterpicking did him in I think!) so I need a smaller tent I can carry and pitch on my own. Next week I'm off to the Lake District so I'm planning to have a look if there are any decent tents in the sales in the myriad camping shops in Keswick.
