oh, and i was also wondering, is there any possibility that we could make a regular time for us wales people to meet up? like the first saturday of every month or something (that was just an example btw)?

i realise that sometimes people will have other plans, or there will be something going on or whatever, but like a general thing and if loads of people can't go to one of the meets then we can reshedule it. just an idea so that we can have more meets.

ummmm...........anybody have any suggestions as to what i can put here?!

Bad luck on the Job loss. I hope something turns up soon for you. If not, you look like someone that can make things. Get creating and start selling stuff online.

You do know if you volunteer and work at Play you will get your ticket money refunded? I know you have to pay upfront, but if you do a few shifts you'll get that money back.

How many people from South Wales are going this year? Could you lot Car share to cut the costs of travel?

Hey stacy,
Sorry for not getting back to you this week, I went away for the weekend last week and decided to stay for the rest of the week, hence not logging on...

How you been? not so good by the sounds of it, frown I read you lost your job, sorry to hear that, im sure you'll find something else pretty fast. I believe everything happens for a reason. So it may not be all that bad. biggrin

So when you free and up for a spin? Im not really free over the weekend, have to entertain the mother inlaw, as its her birthday tomorrow, and also got some redecorating to do, but next week is ok, either the park or the juggling club on thursday if your up for it? juggle

NON, Hello, how you doing ? you going on thursday??

it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

To work at play you just need to contact Dunc/Strugz/Durbs/Bluecat..... They will be able to let you know what you need to do.

I've not been to any meets lately due to crappy health. I'll have to get Jon to drag me along to one soon though because I've all but forgotten how to spin.

I would offer people a lift to Play with us but I think we have 5 people in our polo already. My only other suggestion is put up a request for car space on the play thread. There will be a whole load of people going from Bristol...which isn't as far by train. Maybe one of them will have space for you.

Helloooo.... hope everyone had a cool bank holiday weekend! i went to blowout festival down cardiff bay, which was fun, although a tad wet... how was the camarthen one?

seems the weather has turned rubbish again for the time being, hope that firegathering turns out nice though for those of you going!

Frankie > not sure about thursday yet, don't think i have any other plans, so it could be a good opportunity to go if you want to, send me a text or something, will ask nat also. Of course if it gets nice and sunny again by the end of the week it might be nice to go to the park of an evening instead smile

Sorry to be the sensible one, but getting piercings done at festivals is not a good idea. For one keeping it clean after it has be done is not easy in a field and 2 in big crowds of dancing people it's very easy to get a new piercing caught on someone else and ripped out. OUCH!

ubblol ubblol ubblol

Any decent piercer will NOT pierce anyone who has drunk alcohol in the past 24 hours due to the blood being thinner, and the client bleeding all over the place.

good point Jonner!

and I agree with Miss Skully, even having healed piercings at a festival isn't that fun, especially in the mosh pit! (do kids still say mosh pit?)

my friend had 4 piercings ripped out of the tops of his ears at Reading. eep!

have to butt in... any suggestions, i got my neck done in cardiff, have it done at oriental arts by simon, he's awesome.
DON'T DON'T DON'T have it done at Blue Banana (sorry ULG i think you said you wanted a job there... they did my neck the first time and seriously ballsed it up...) and the nice ginger man in splot (who's name or place i can't remember, but his business card has a duck on it) is lovely but said he only did it with a straight bar, and that went a bit funny and grew out after a month and a half. but he did say it would.
but i'm sure it will be lovely having it done at a festival as well.
*steps down off soapbox*
hello everybody! i joined a while ago then lurked for a bit then didn't talk to anyone... but i went to juggling club for a bit before easter then stopped cs of exams... and to be honest hadnt been for a bit anyway... but, then i am pmd about a meet (thank you ULG!) so i'm here to gatecrash!! if that's all ok by everybody. so there biggrin

*is online*

Pitman's at firegathering this weekend, and depending on the when's and where's i might be able to come for a bit, but not guaranteed as it is big birthday weekend in my house (2 of my housemates birthdays) and thus i will be mostly drunk, hungover, or tidying up... so what exactly is the plan?

... and can we please not talk about piercings in my thread in such detail, it's oh so offtopic... but mainly because i'm quite squeamish about them, i don't like needles and the idea of any bit of metal being ripped out of skin, almost makes me want to vom... thankyou muchly please, bye bye now biggrin
