  1. I've been posting on here since 2003! 😮
  2. I bought and read his book 'Left Again at the Womble' about him volunteering through Shelter serving pints at Glastonbury 2011 as I was about to do the same for the 2019 festival. Helped me prepare for what was about to come, although like others I found myself shouting at the book as Rick seemed to mainly drink coffee and not explore some of the less popular areas (in that one at least) RIP Rick.
  3. Glad it’s not just me that’s noticed it...the people who’ve been arguing against me are the same ones who have 5-6,000 posts in this thread alone!
  4. interesting.... https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-about-the-events-research-programme-erp-paving-the-way-for-larger-audiences-to-attend-sport-theatre-and-gigs-safely-this-summer

  6. What I don't get is why people who were rarely in meetings before COVID/WFH are now constantly on teams calls and unavalible.

She is in her mid-20's, lives 15 mins from our place of work, has no children or any other reason that makes working from home easier.

  9. Not for me, been my worst nightmare come true.
  10. Labbatts was another popular one when I first started drinking in pubs!
  11. I'm sure they were all doing a Facebook check in or a picture of their pint to go on Instagram! 😄
  12. Made me laugh coming home from work on the bus on Monday...we stopped at some lights by a big river front pub in Oxford and at one of the tables there was a group of six people all sat together, none of them talking to each other and just playing on their phones! You would have thought to have gone to all that effort to 'socalise' they would actually talk to one another!
