  1. Trust me, there’s another side to this that’s developing that people aren’t seeing. I’m off to the pub tomorrow, I’m fine with any risk, but this is honestly different to anything that’s come before.
  2. Thank you. It’s been such a strange week that I just felt like I needed to add my bit. The NHS gets some stick but I feel quite proud to be a part of it this week.
  3. I feel like it’s a rite of passage to at least have one comment on this thread. I’ve been trying to avoid coming here but it’s like slowing down for a car crash, I can’t help Myself. As someone who works front line in the NHS this is a very surreal time. We’re just starting to see the ramp up of people who are needing intensive respiratory support and we’re struggling even now. Even last week I thought that what was happening in Italy and elsewhere wouldn’t happen here, now I’m not so sure. We just don’t have the capacity or specialist equipment to cope with the influx. Most people will be fine but even the 1% getting ill in a period of one month is bad news. It will come but we just need to do our best to drag it out. As such, I struggle to see glastonbury happen now - we might be ok by June but the call has to be made soon and I fear that’ll be next month at the latest. And I’m ok with that - some things really are more important and as much as I was looking forward to 5 days forgetting about all the shit that we’ve had to face this last year this is a global crisis that we’ve never seen before. Peoples lives will change, business will close, we’ll be talking about this for years but let’s just hope that we’re all back here looking forward to 2021.
  4. Hang on. I’ve not been for 7 years and they’ve got rid of the flushing toilets!

    2020 New Music

    Listened to the new Andy Shauf record today - neon skylines. Has a bit of a Paul Simon feel to it. Was nice with the sun out.

    Ditto this - I’m making sure I check in regularly here to pick up some gems
  7. This is so true. Started my running again in September along with reducing the calories and have lost 6Kg so far. The running has been great for fitness and my mental health but I swear by the Myfitnesspal app for logging calories. It's amazing how much those snacks build up when you're honest with the logging. Oh and drinking less beer - this has also helped loads!

    Rum club

    El Dorado 12 and 15 if you can stretch to it are fantastic rums. Also worth a try is the Angostura Rums.
  9. I saw her in a small venue near London Bridge earlier in the year and she was great. I'd quite like to see her on the farm so fingers crossed she turns up somewhere next year.
  10. Anyone here a fan of Tusks? The new album was out a few weeks ago and she's playing a small show in London at the village underground in November .
  11. So I'm going to jump into this early as I will get tickets for next year! Managed to loose a good few kilos a couple of years ago by doing the couch to 5k and then building up to half marathons. Did myself a mischief last summer though and never really got back into the swing of things. Tried a little leg stretch at the weekend and it was awful - right back to square one again. The extra weight gain has also not helped so it's back to basics and will build it up slowly. In an ideal world I'd be 15 kilos lighter but I'd settle for 10 come next June. Good luck all. Will follow this thread for the motivation required.
  12. How many times did they headline. I thought 2 - it was 3.

    Resale Club 2019

    True. I don’t really know what I’d do. Probably drive to Glastonbury town. Get a cab a bit closer then hit the fields under darkness. I guess the perimeter is crawling with security though. I’ve always fancied the wooded area in the south / south west. Ladder would be an issue though.
