yessss!

Wychwood here I come :D 

Great decision FC.  For Wychwood there will be space for you both in either my caravan or the attached awning.  I go up the day before (the Thursday) and spend the night at the adjoining Caravan Club site to charge the leisure battery and top up my water tanks.  You'd be welcome to come up in my car that day or drive up separately and find my caravan on the site on Friday. A couple of my Glasto Gang will probably be coming and Neil from EFests is usually there with his family.  It's a delightful mainstream festival but remember to take your bathers in case you get the chance of a spell in their hot tub.

I passed my driving test today, first time (albeit 16 years since I had my first lesson). Can’t believe it!

brilliant stuff! if it makes you feel any better, I'm still to scared to learn (I'm 57) because I'm so spatially challenged. I knock things over with anything I happen to be carrying, step back into people, get lost easily...I keep translating that into driving, and it puts me off.

Congratulations, enjoy your freedom and independence (jealous)

:)

Out of interest do you need to drive as you say you do not enjoy it

My parents live 200 miles away and we also occasionally take the ferry over to Ireland and drive across the country - after 8 years of my husband doing all the driving it’s only fair I take a turn! Also gives me more options with jobs etc when i decide to move on from where I am now.

I'd forgotten how much I really enjoy a good punk gig.

The Anti Nowhere League supported by The Warriors at the weekend was just brilliant.

I'm moving closer to home :)

 

Started a new job recently and although it's a bit of a paycut, the cost of living is a lot lower where I'm moving so it'll make little difference. Closer to friends and family with less working hours :)

Nice one guy. I don't think that you'll be getting that warmth in the next week or so, though! That;s great that it started up straight away though.

Yes old son and the car has JUST been MOTed.. So that's a weight off my head.. Book van in for mot in may so that my mate does the actual job.. I want to know it's safe but when they start finding stupid things like a loose bolt etc then fall it it gets you down and in the pocket.. When all that is needed is a five minute job.. So that's next.. 

I'm off to finish a booze and glory clock then hopefully a grateful dead one as well... 

No snow here which is great.. G

The thaw has come. The pipes have thawed and we've got water again (temporarily via a neighbour's supply) but the joy of going to the loo and being able to flush the toilet is hard to match.  And my car started!

And something most of us (including me) take for granted. All credit to WaterAid

I've been a WaterAid donor for many years - thanks originally to Glastonbury.  The occasional glass of prosecco is all very well but water is such a precious commodity.

Being let out of hospital. While in there I was told that should  the procedure  that they needed to carry out go wrong then there was a  very real likely of me dying. Then they said that that was likely to be the case if I didn't have  the procedure done there and then, in any case.  Bit of a no brainer really. I was given the option of them going in though my thigh, or  via my neck, I opted for the neck, because a neck scar looks much harder!

Congrats on being let out of hospital, hope you're well on the way to recovery yog.
