Obviously loving the damp, dull summer we had. There were millions in the garden when I moved into my house, beer traps sorted them. At least they will die happy!

Had an exhausting day at work and now we're sitting here unable to hear our own tv over the neighbours...again. Honestly, they've made our lives misery with their noise since moving in 9 months ago. Loud music and blaring tv including all day last Christmas day.

Rte one and their never ending bucket of doom. Just sat and watched two hours of TV with my elderly dad who would worry about stuff he sees on telly. An hour of the news, covid covid covid, followed by nationwide, a look at the effects of covid on tourism, followed by ecoeye and a reminder that climate change is here and anyone who survives covid will either drown or die in a forest fire.

I know these are important issues but would it hurt to try and make people smile every now and again?

Constant picking as I prepare dinner means I'm not actually hungry when it's ready.

It might be good to try to distract him. Some channels show old favourites, repeats of old series, for example, that might help.
All the doom and gloom would drag anyone down especially if he is a worrier anyway.

People who drive with the palm on the steering wheel action.

You're not driving a forklift with one of those little turning knobs you numpty.

How does it work in hot weather with sweaty plams? Accident waiting to happen I tells you

This is more than a TA. Reading about the suffering in Yemen and how small babies and toddlers are dying of hunger, that situation has gone on for far too long. I made a small donation to Unicef but really no one should be starving to death in this day and age.

This sounds mean.
However do you know when you encounter an individual and your nice to them and you’ve a chat with them and you might meet somewhere casually in a group and they think they are automatically your best friends.

My friend is texting me asking if I can go out next weekend for my birthday. It's so sweet of her to arrange something but I just don't feel comfortable going out at the moment. I don't know how to tell her, it feels so mean

I wouldn't sweat over it, just explain your position and tell her how much you appreciate it. I have found among my group of friends that we have had different levels of comfort in what we could/ should do at different times over the last six months
