looks like it will be another great weekend in June - Barrels of free beer in the middle of a field with some of the best musicians in Kent and plenty of free food (thursday)look forward to seeing all my mudcat mates again.

Unlikely to be any free beer this year as we will have drunk it all by then, and the food is not strictly free, it is provided by the campers on a 'bring a dish to share' basis. It's still a great weekend though and all are welcome.There is a small fee for camping and a collection towards running expenses (Portaloos, wood, marquee etc.) on the Saturday night.

15th - 19th June this year, who's going?

I first went to Folkmob's Knockholt campout about 12 years ago. It is a superb field - with excellent facilities. Folkmob provide real decent toilets and a fire to keep everyone warm throughout the whole of the evening. You can watch the sun go down - the stars at night - and the returning early morning sun. Guess how many songs and tunes you can get through during that.

Also, if you get fed up with canned beer and burnt food you can take the short walk down to the Tally Ho Pub for midday meals, early supper or just a real decent pint.

Looking forward to seeing old chums!.

I don't know the cost of the grottbottis, but if what I have heard about the wood is right a levy of a quid a head on each attendee would cover that.

Rachel on Morphine awaiting doctor? she has had bad back for years Richard?
If its a disc that gone we can both forget Knockholt if its muscle spasms then a muscle relaxant injection and painkillers with do the trick.. she bent down to poick up a iron off the floor to do some irining next thing "BANG" " NOT THE iRON HER BACK???

Flipping heck - yes, I spent some years faddling about while doctors investigated a disc problem - in the end a sports physio said "lose weight and get fit - which at that stage I did, clanking iron about and stuff, little though you would so think today, and it's been more or less OK ever since. As you say, muscle spasm yields to relaxants and painkillers - and anti-inflammatories help both types.


Moral - don't have babies (it's what kills most womens' backs, that and carying them around on one hip and large handbags) and don't do ironing!


One of my usual sources for chillies failed me for Scotch Bonnets today so even harissa paste is doubtful and I won't be there Thurs for the feast unless I prep something here and drive up specially - and logcutting will be Friday PM at the earliest.

I haven't ironed for years. I mostly dress in t shirts... Any creases fall out with wear. Bad news about Rachel's back. If it's disc trouble - been there, and had to retire early from work at 37! I know she is slightly older than that, so, it could be a disc. With luck it heals, (mine was not completely done in),merely prolapsed, but I occasionally get arthritis. It's hurting now, just in sympathy. Also, gone down with sore throat, just as himself is recovering....if better, and weather good, will be there on Thursday.

I went out to the shops, thinking it will rain soon, but none here thus far. Not feeling well enough to come to Knockholt though. Pete, take great care with that lady of yours please. Don't let her sit / lie/ stand for any length of time. Have a good Flock Fest !

I am back in trouble with my kidney stone again - I know now that I only have to wait for the pain to stop so I can do that, but I was going to make an interim trip to Knockers to cut the wood with my chainsaw and I probably won't be able to get up there with the vardo until Friday.

Unless the pain goes off.

Is there anyone personally known to me and safe with a chainsaw who could borrow mine and make the trip to do that, or is this year's wood small enough that it can wait?

Actually, the pain may be going off a bit now, but better to have a plan B just in case... - so contact me first before just rolling up.

As for me, I've been hallucinating on Diazepan and Tramadol, not to mention the morphine which is still in my system. Apparently, according to my children, I've been ranting about multiplying spiders and killer trees. Who needs magic mushrooms!!! Went to osteopath this morning and things are definately easier in my lower back. Hope to get down there sometime in the next day or 2. It's not my disc,it's muscle spasm so no serious harm donexx

Well done Rachel.

If it's muscle spasm and there is no current disc damage (check with Dr and physio first), try what saved me back in the late 80s - strenuous loss of weight (I lost about 4 stone on allegedly dangerous "micro-diets") and at the same time was clunking metal about in a gym - being careful however with situps which are hell on backs.

I even got quite pleased with my body shape back then!

Thanks, Richard. I needed the incentive to shed a few stone. Pete's been trying to help me, bless him. It's not a cosmetic thing, although I'd love to be a size 12 (i.e. pre-children!), but at my age..the grand old age of 46, it's time i took care of myself for my health's sake. So it's joining David Llyod gym and taking up cycling again.

You can't possibly be 46!

Not being funny (I mean look at me) but don't go to a poncy gym. Go to the local place where the freaks go. They are serious. And they will just love to help an innocent female!

Cycling is hell on back (think of posture). I suggest a different sustainable exercise - I (then) did walking and jogging and got into exploring rights of way (hard for you Londoners).

Ok, walking it is then. Got a trip planned in the Yorkshire Dales (Pennine Way) in August. Think I'd get bored in the gym anyway.
As....for me being 46, working in a women's refuge with a load of hypervigilent, and unregulated children; where everyone looks haggard and stressed,I have the privilege of leaving that place every evening, putting my feet up in the bath and having a large glass of wine and some visualisation techniques. Works wonders. The elixir of youth.

Gym actually makes you feel good - the whatever it is chemicals the body produces when working really intensely leave you feeling quite "pumped up" for a few hours. It was a good feeling. It will also strengthen the relevant muscles in the back and that may well be important for you.

As well as prowling around with the dogs for about half an hour a day (back then) on weekdays and for about an hour a time at weekends with an ordnance survey map, every weekday I used to walk briskly for half an hour each way from the bus-stop or train stop in London to the office. I stayed ten stone for several years that way, between about 1988 and 1992/3 (ie age of 40 to 45). The working lunches at Tarlo Lyons with sandwiches with fattening fillings and my hatred of wasted food were my undoing! Downhill all the way after that.

I have no idea what a "visualisation technique" is.

By the way do set a cookie on your computer or remember to sign in by name every time or the mods will get grumpy!
