I want to see my friends
I miss my friends

Aww I love that!
Some of her stuff is verging on twee but that one's great. I went to see her when she came to Bristol a couple of years ago – the only gig I've ever been to in a launderette!  :o

Ooh ooh ooh I went to a gig in a launderette once! With Crinkylion and Slowcoach!

Wow! And I thought it was unusual. Who did you see?

In other launderette news: at least 25 years ago, I went into a launderette to actually wash my clothes. Two blokes came in, completely pissed, one says to the other 'Go on, just like the advert, do it,' and other one stripped naked, put his clothes in the machine, took them out and get dressed again. I don't know whether he was actually wearing Levis.... I do remember that when I told my sister, she got quite interested and wanted to know which launderette! I had to tell her that this bloke looked nothing at all like that Levi's model...

Errm, is that too wildly off topic, do we need A Random Thread for Weird Things that Happen in Launderettes?

We saw Blue Rose Code at the Old Cinema Launderette in Durham. It was superb.

The only things that have happened to me in launderettes are washing powder allergy and a creepy Italian bloke.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

The whole world is YACF. The place where nothing stays on topic but there is a topic for everything. Isn't that right?

One of my daughters once got chatted up by a creepy Italian bloke but it was in Italy and not in a launderette. She got away by convincing him she was really French and from a long way away, not France. The advantages of a college education  ;D  (her French is actually a lot better than mine in spite of never having lived here).

Apparently I may be stabbed by early 2021 but you snapper whippers may not be done until 2022. So what do we do? Do we have a masqued ball?

A lot depends upon how the virus spreads over the next four or so months.  I'd not like to second guess that for now.

Until then though, stay safe.

Where do you fancy going?

I could see what we can book for Silverdale in May.  Lots of camping, cycling, walking and other touristy things such as Leighton Moss RSPB, gateway to The Lakes, etc.

Silverdale sounds great, I'd be up for that - I know things are still uncertain and Covid is dragging, but yes sometime this year.

Also heading for Scotland sometime this Summer would be a good idea this year with the restrictions on travelling abroad and costs of tests / possible quarantine - more would probably be up for it this year

Speaking as a former regular visitor to the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland, Dumfries is barely north midlands of the UK. 
However, experience tells me that it is difficult to get folk to travel too far.   It is even difficult to get the north east of England membership anywhere much south or west of Appleby.

Travel there by coach it's cheaper! I took my bike on the coach last year, its a foldup so I was okay whatever, but when National express staff heard I had a bike they was okay with it they wanted it in a bag. The official policy says no unfolded bikes. Also because of social distancing last year they were only half filling coaches so more space for bags and elbow room.
