The initial ticket sales for the Glastonbury Festival 2016 have been and gone with no success for this fan.
The first sale for 15,000 coach package tickets on October 1st lasted 15 of your Earth minutes.
Today's sale of 120,000 general admission was at 09:00 this morning, and was all done by 09:31.
All is not lost, however - there is a resale of tickets not taken up next April, and if that doesn't come off there are other good festivals around - maybe it will be the year to experiment.
It has been a strange week or so. I have been struggling with a cough and cold and actually took a day off sick a couple of Fridays ago.
I missed a Cub Scout meeting and a District Push Cart event.
I had to miss a gig in Brixton so I had a chance to recover.
The cold element is persevering, but at least the cough element has abated.
The week after that we have a Pack Holiday at Frylands Wood Camp Site - no canvas and in a hut, so it sounds luxurious.
I hope I have shaken this damned cold by then!
