The Prodigy at Glastonbury Festival 2009

Playing on the Other Stage at Glastonbury 2009

They certainly lost the battle of who to see amongst all the clashes on the last night of the festival. The crowd was their smallest I’ve seen at Glastonbury before, but it was full of the hardcore fans, so it was a fantastic atmosphere.

To be honest, I would have preferred to see Blur. We did see them before in 1995, but it was so long ago, I hardly remember it, and we aren’t likely to ever see them again, but I was outnumbered by the rest of the family who would all rather see The Prodigy. We started at the Pyramid stage for the beginning of Blur (who were great) and then raced round and actually got there in time for the beginning of The Prodigy’s set.

We’ve seen them twice before at Glastonbury, once at Reading and once at V. I think I’ve preferred them before when Keith was the main stage presence. They’ve obviously decided that Maxim is now taking over and I didn’t like it so much. I’m going to sound really old now, but all he did was swear. Every other word was the F word and you could tell everyone was getting tired of hearing it. It just sounded like he was trying too hard to look cool or somthing. It really got on my nerves and that spoilt the performance for me; it was constant.

So; complaint out the way; I still enjoyed myself and the group did a fantastic show full of energy despite being ten years older since we last saw them (I can’t believe that!). Keith still picked up the vocals on his songs and was fantastic. They did an even mix of new tracks from their latest album and classics like Outer space, Breath, Firestarter, smack my bitch up and smoothly missed out their less popular albums completely. Me and the kids danced the whole time and really enjoyed ourselves.

Entertainment, Music,

Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
