But i still can’t think positively !!

So about two years ago during the depths of lockdown I paid £5 into this and heard nothing.

I got an email this morning saying that because some people couldn’t attend (my first thought was it’s the rail strikes??) I was on the reserve list and could get entry.

So of course instead of going whoop whoop and celebrating, the mardy Bum that is depressed little AET goes into a massive deep depression and throws a strop that he can’t possibly go cos of the rail strikes and couldn’t possibly drive down to London because he’d only get lost and would get stressed driving in central london.

Anyway cut a long story short. One train an hour is running to London and I’m going with my brother.

So nice things sometimes happen.

That's going to be fab AET and I hope you have a great time. My favourite PSB song ever is Being Boring. The lyrics are so sentimental.

They always do that as the encore whenever I’ve seen them before. I think it’s a song about losing friends to AIDS.

It’s a Sin is my favourite cos it’s a banger and to me it’s about the guilt about being gay, and I prefer their dancier stuff but Being Boring is def up there!!

Great to hear you got sorted! Sounds like a quality time is to be had.

I bet you could have still made it on the megabus! After getting of one of those to London things always seem better!! Some canny coach trips to be had that have accommodation included too.

As far as having bother driving to London I’ve found sat navs to be an excellent investment along with Airbnb’s with parking, long stay parking near hostels, I’ve even used an Airbnb type app for parking.

I went to a Johnstone’s paint trophy final between Peterborough vs chesterfield a few years ago.

I was the designated driver.

Never again. Got completely lost on the north circular.

I’ll stick to fen roads thanks

possitivity ,thats nice to hear aet,have a great time
Positivity indeed. Woke up this morning and all I can think about is s***ing bricks about getting on a train. I’m such a nervous traveller. I’ve got to go into the office today - I’m worried I won’t get away.

This is the anxiety - it’s crippling.
And then you can enjoy them again on Sunday on TV headlining the Other stage at Glastonbury. I will be there

I believe tonight is a warm up for that. Enjoy. I saw the whole show in Birmingham a few weeks ago and it’s great. I’ve got that one on record on my sky box already !!

Good for you AET....you will have a fab time. I know exactly how you feel though. When I put on your last thread about my big opportunity next week I've nearly turned down....I'm going to be on a TV game show and my episode is recording next week. God knows why I applied...I think it was the 4 gins...and I can't believe I've been picked after going through all the processes. But I've worried massively and now I too am having big stresses about driving to Manchester on my own etc etc....exactly the same feelings what you have mentioned. Mad isn't it, such positive things happening to us both and anxiety is trying to destroy that too

That's wicked Legz,I'd love to do something like that.
You'll regret it forever if you don't do it now !
Which one are you going on ?
I'd love to go on the chase and meet Bradley Walsh, he's a legend !

Sometimes you need to do something out of your comfort zone to give you a massive injection of positivity and self confidence.
I remember how nervous I was when I gave my first presentation to a room of about 20 people,I'd never done public speaking before and to say I was nervous would be understatement of the century.
Whilst I was far from perfect I felt ten feet tall after it and the more I did it the better I became!
