NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

Recommended Posts

I'm stone cold sober. I tried to drink earlier this evening but couldn't manage it. It's actually a good start to 2018, as I need to be more industrious this year, and being sober more often is part of that strategy. For those with New Year resolutions I hope that you all succeed in achieving what you want to achieve. :)

I'm sat watching the highlights on BBC 2 with my youngest in my arms. 

Who knows what 2018 will bring? Be the best you can be, and see where life takes you. 

Good luck and good fortune to all. 

I'm also very much sober @Yoghurt on a Stick, I haven't had a wild NYE since 2013. I outdid myself that year. It's a story of smoke machines, confined spaces, disco lights, a tandoori, an 8 person rave and a missing piece of jenga. :D

Hello vintagelareate,

I haven't gone out on a NYE in years. Mind you I don't do a lot of going out nowadays anyway - it's too expensive to do so, and I've already done my fair share of going out. The only good NYE that I can actually recall was going to a mates party in London in 1999. 

Your 2013 NYE sounds interesting, especially the missing piece of jenga. Well, that and the smoke machines, confined spaces, disco lights, tandoori, abd the 8 person rave. :)

I forgot to say that i saw your panda a couple of weeks ago. You were right it was brilliant.

Over to you gumbs.

So glad you saw one! I loved Edinburgh, such a cool city.

Disapointed at the lack of Finbarr by Gumballs though.

Afternoon all, and a happy , healthy and darn right awesome 2018 to eac( and every one of you

group of friends round last night, cheese, wine, bubbles, watched the local fireworks at midnight and then danced in my slippers in the lounge until 3am. Brunch cooked  this morning then all settled down to watch the Glastonbury highlights, which bought back some superb memories.Casserole nearly cooked so that fill feed the buddies and then I’ll them back home, and there ends 12 days of catering for friends and family and visitors or various varieties 

Now onto festival planning for 2018, was thinking latitude, now someone has thrown No 6into the mix... Anyone been to No6 that can comment, not one I have ever really considered

Sorry to hear that mr gumby. I had wondered what was going on as I noticed another Finbarr a little while back, and thought that you'd be all over it like a rash. Get well soon. :)

I've been a bit quiet on this forum recently but still lurking in the background. Merry New Year all of you!

No Glasto this year :crying: might pay the site another visit and have a little weep.

Gumby are you feeling any better today? I hope so!

Hope everyone else is ok too! I've spent the whole of this year so far in my pyjamas. Unfortunately I am back at work tomorrow so will have to do proper clothes!

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

PLEASE SHARE : YELLOW HORSEBOX STOLEN FROM MY DRIVE LAST NIGHT. Pretty hard to miss this bright yellow thing. If anyone has any leads to get back this dj stage, let me know. It's full of kit and removed from Boscombe. Police have been informed and checking cctv. What a great start to the year.
UPDATE> white renault traffic van seen at at 5.21 heading down alley so keep eyes peeled for it towing big yellow horse box

That is such a pisser, and a poor start to the New Year. I hope the cctv can hone in on the number plate of the van. I'm unsure as to share on Facebook, but will try for you. Was it and the kit insured?

I have just received an email indicating that I have won a competition that I entered late last year. The prize is two first class Interrail tickets for people of me and my wife's age. The competition was run by a very reputable website (as far as I can tell). I was directed to the Interrail website where I filled out all our details. So, now I wait. This could go two ways, as far as I can see - the first is that it's legit, and we get two 1st class tickets. In which case it's going to be a yahoo moment. The second case is that it's some sort of scam. I know that I want it to be the first case, but also genuinely believe it to be the first case. 

If you want to know who held the competition, it's these folk;

Time, as ever, will tell.

Thanks all 

No the insurance was just too much.. Where we live it's a nightmare... But it must have been a planned thing cos it's was all clamped and had other things to put people off but we know that a Renault traffic was used and that it took about 5 minutes to take.. Hopefully there will be pics of the van on cameras cos all the main Rds are camerad up to the max and they had to go through them... Only thing is the old bill aren't that interested.. But Sharon got to the local paper yesterday and there going to be in touch with our son to day.. Fingers crossed.. 

Were off out now to check out some places were it could be and where you don't really want to go but hey ho.. 

Have a safe day All

Good luck @guypjfreak - hoping it turns up for your son.

@Yoghurt on a Stick any news on your winnings? It sounds great.

Hello vintagelaureate,

I've had some email interaction with one of the founders of the site that held the competition. He displayed his pleasure at our good fortune when I told him that my wife was about to have kittens with excitement at winning the prize. As far as the prize goes I was directed to Interrail's own website where I had to fill in our details. I'm kind of expecting them to take a day or two for processing things and then get in touch. Or it could be the case that, at some point, we'll just get two tickets come through the post. Then again, it could be that somebody in the Far East is currently working on a false set of passports using our details! Who knows? Nothing ventured, nothing gained - or lost, as the case may be.
