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,

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
The Beauty Bargain you need to know about today!
January 7, 2017
I am a fan of Boots No 7 beauty products – on the whole they work very well for my skin, so I was pleased to spot this gift pack in the Boots January sale called the No 7 Beautiful Skin Collection. Originally £14, it’s now half price at £7, which makes this a real bargain. It contains small size tubes and bottles of Radiance Exfoliator; Day Cream; Night Cream and Cleansing Lotion. But the main one to note is the full size bottle of Overnight Revitalising Eye Balm. The same size retails normally at £12, so if this is a product you’re likely to use, then the whole pack is an absolute steal. I’ve just bought two packs! My local Boots had stacks the other day, but only a few today, so get out quick to grab this while you can! Or I’ve just found it online. On a side note, they’re also doing a three for two on Boots No 7 beauty products in their usual price range at the moment and you’ve got one more day to use the £5 off beauty products and £3 off make-up vouchers they’re handing out at the till. (You’d have to work out if the three for two is better value as you can’t use both offers at the same time.) So there you are – just a very quick beauty tip I thought you might like to know about!
