Re: I just nearly fainted!

Ooh, my sister and I shared a copy of this. I wonder if she still has it? Unless, of course. this is it :lol:

Actually, I would quite lik to have it in my possession now, especially since my kids play instruments and hers don't. I ought to ask her....

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

In no way belittling the impact this can have on the elderly / those with underlying health issues but I have found myself thinking (worrying?) about the potential missing out on the show due to the virus. Definitely a case of first world problems and all that.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I do enjoy reading how we all have different tastes among the Boys' songs.

I've discovered the I don't wanna is the track on Hotspot that I play 2 or 3 times in a row so I guess it must be my favourite!
Not sure if that makes it a good single choice but I'm not complaining.

Re: Anyone else not heard the new album yet?

I'm doing something slightly odd for Hotspot. I was ill too when the album arrived and couldn't face listening to it immediately... and then I had an interesting idea. There are some records in my collection that I got to know as instrumentals first, and then heard the versions with vocals later......

Re: Final results of poll on feelings about the "greatest hits" tour

What a total shame is that? Can't comprehend why / how people (adults?) could do that.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Yay - mine arrived this afternoon :-)

I see what you mean about the signatures - they do have an air of 'how many of these things do we have to sign?!'
Still, probably a better job than I would have done under the circumstances.

Going to have my proper listen now. :-D

Oh, I also meant to say, I noticed some rather fine lyrics too, which I'm chuffed about. :-)

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I've only had one cursory listen via YouTube on the kids' notebook speakers as I'll listen properly once my CDs actually arrive... However, based on that listen, I'm pretty happy. I have to say no songs leapt out and grabbed me but neither did I find myself disliking any. I really loved the instant ...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Had the unexpected text from Ingram Micro yesterday to say it’ll be delivered by DPD today and that they’ll send me my one hour time slot by 11:00. Naturally that didn’t happen. Now the DPD website is saying that they’ve received my order details but have not yet received my parcel. I’ve never had ...

Just found this silicone trivet in Home Bargains for £1.00. Looks strangely familiar...
I like it :-)
I didn't even realise you got silicone trivets - good idea.

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

Do we know if this is still available to order? I thought the cut-off date had passed but it still seems to appear in the shop.
Thanks :-)

Re: Sad news - Iain Bell

That is so sad to hear. I lost my Mum to cancer when she was just 42 so that was almost my 'norm'. It's still shocking to hear of losing someone so young. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Re: It's a sin guitar playing help

Ahh, that makes sense to me now, thanks for the explanations :-).

I should really have been able to work it out for myself but she seemed just as thrown.

Just need her to do some decent practice now :)

Re: It's a sin guitar playing help

Hi again I just found this, which should hopefully help my daughter with her strumming... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QehnAarHvgc I still don't understand how it all works - he's using a capo but she doesn't (although he seems to have the same chords) but then I know nothing about guitar.
