  1. Have had a long time to reconcile both of these, but the loss of Taylor and Lana is never going to not sting. In so many other ways the lineup is a improvement, and I've developed an appreciation for lots of acts in the intervening years that I hadn't initially been psyched for... But still.. I know Taylor will appear again at some point but Lana I'm less certain. At least I have the memories of that amazing February 13th 2020 when she was announced.
  2. All paid up, email confimation received, bank account lighter.. and it's SUNNY! WHat a great day.
  3. You stole my response! Thief!
  4. I've barely slept. My kitchen refurb has just started and within half an hour was revealed that the whole thing needs rewiring. I did not have breakfast. Feeling a bit delerious.. but this positive spin this morning has put a smile on my face.
  5. May not have been any new material, but Kendrick's blowing the rest of the gang out of the water.
  6. I'm going to try and stay up for it, but had no annual leave left to take so have to be at work bright and early. I was designated a Patriots fan by my best friend/roommate when I moved to the University of Rhode Island. The season I was there was a Giants/Pats super bowl (XLVI), and that was super fun in the weeks leading up to it as the majority of students were fans of one or the other and the whole campus was obsessed in the build-up.. less fun after the game.
  7. You know what I did before? I didn't click the link 😬 problem solved! And yes, you're correct - @March Harereally is just that selfless of a guy. Volunteer and lead booker for us hopeless folks trying for tickets.
  8. Have tried @March Hare's postcode too πŸ‘€ - nada.
  9. Hadn't tried that page specifically, but same result in a roundabout way - all I get on that email are my registration details, nothing about bookings.
  10. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ whatever I'm trying, I'm getting "not recognised". Just checked my registered address though so at least I know that's right, and the last email I got from Glasto was the one in September to say my deposit has been rolled over. Will just wait and hope all is well come March 1st!
  11. Can you only use this if you are the lead booker? Because.. i'm getting nothing 😨
  12. Have reiterated my annual leave booking ... asked for it in an email when I first got the job, but don't want to be taking any chances.
  13. Been moping about the apparent Macca absence, but the reminder that this potentially frees me up to see Dua - wherever she is - has put a smile right back on my face.
  14. Macca being apparently out is a kick in the groin that I was not expecting, and am really really pained by. Losing Taylor and him... gutted.
  15. Chuckling in the midst of all this that he considers Taylor's output to be "endlessly upbeat" πŸ™ƒ
  16. Only three episodes in to Yellowjackets so enjoying all the praise the rest of the series has gotten. I am easily creeped out, admittedly, but already finding that just thinking about the show too long puts a shiver up me πŸ˜…
  17. A few thoughts: - Really chuffed to see Love get some love. Think it is oft overlooked but a significant favourite of mine. - Inclusion of Lust for Life reminded me of the demo version. If anyone hasn't heard it, you should: - Can't argue with no.1 either. Difficult to explain just how transportive that track is for me. Will never ever tire of hearing it, and as soon as I hear those bells, it can't be skipped.
  18. I've only known two Americans who were familiar with/had heard of Glastonbury, one because she lived here in the UK for a year, and the other because he is quite "into music" and had come across references to it online. The latter is the boyfriend of my best friend in the States. They're planning on visiting here in the summer, and I had to gently let her down when she threw into conversation that "Ty suggested we pick up some Glastonbury tickets if we're over at the right time!" "Oh, sweet summer child... one does not simply 'pick up' tickets to Glastonbury..."
  19. On the Bruce topic, I noticed Nils' tweet a few weeks ago and got the vibe that a tour was looking to be off the cards:

    Campsite Poll

    First two visits I was in south west corner - south-west corner of Paines and then in one of the South Parks. Thought these were fine, until in 2017 we were in Michael's Mead as a friend had access to the facilities in Spring ground. Had a great overlook of the site, was quiet and close to JP and super accessible for the Pyramid. I'm sold and will be heading in that direction next time (although there is the chance we may actually camp in Spring Ground this time, which is also fine by me).
  21. That's a stunning achievement! Well done you! I've been so crap at reading this year, and I've really appreciated just how much I enjoyed all the reading I managed in 2020, so I'm quietly making the goal for myself to read another 52 in '22 🀫 Also, think I saw 'Good girl's guide to murder' on your Goodreads and I thoroughly enjoyed that this week! Good to know that if I'm on a slow down at any point in the year I can just turn to the sequels πŸ‘
  22. On top of a wonderful Christmas weekend spent with numerous family members, my boyfriend proposed to me on Friday. I said yes. It's very exciting and overwhelming!
  23. The good news is that I will shortly be getting in my car and driving home to my family for Christmas πŸŽ„ partner and I have lft'd everyday for the last week, and just done two different ones half an hour ago that have all come up negative - which is as confident as I can feel. Have been reminsicing, naturally, about how similar and how different last year was. I'm really glad the board is back now so that I can say thanks again to everyone on here who was so supportive and friendly when I was really going through it last year, unable to see my family. I hope everyone is able to enjoy the festive days however they feel comfortable to do so ❀
