Hello again, Dear Reader,
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.
I have been through the disappointment of sale failure before, and can live with that - but what rankles me is the fact that for 25 minutes of today's sale I could not even access the See Tickets website due to traffic volumes.
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.
Although I missed out on the Wolf Alice gig, I did venture up to Shoreditch last week to the Village Underground and after getting hopelessly lost because of building works saw my old pals Summer Camp. They put on a good show and the support acts were interesting. Although my view was brilliant, my selected spot made for awkward photo taking, but some some results were OK and can be seen <here>.
And finally... There is the County Cub Scouts Cooking Competition coming up in a few weekends, so as representatives of Reigate District, our Cub Pack will have to "up our game" and practice cooking a new two course menu.
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!
