  1. I'm spiralling right now. I've been really struggling the last few weeks, not even specifically with sadness but almost a complete lack of emotion. I don't cry like I used to. I just don't feel strongly about anything. I can never decide what I want to do. I can't get things done that I need to. I'm spacing out at work and know I'm losing hold of stuff. And right now I'm just unable to sleep. Just thinking about a million different things. Thinking about how it was around this time a year ago I started getting concerned. Thinking about how much more freaked out I'd have been if I'd known

  3. I heard that earlier and I thought I'd misheard! Really strange messaging.
  4. Not at all surprising, but still sad just for the state of things and the uncertainty for so far into this year. I don't even feel able to say "roll on 2022!" with the same confidence I had about 2021 when '20 was cancelled, because nothing feels guaranteed anymore. The only guarantee is that when Glastonbury next happens it will be a party for the ages. And I also know that even without Glasto '21 to look forward to, I'm going to be on this site just as much as I have been this whole year. Honestly I'd be kind of lost without it at this point.
  5. Yep have really enjoyed Frank Turner's output over the last year, never expected anything less given the situation really. Brian Fallon from the Gaslight Anthem has also put on some lovely lockdown shows and a lesser known artist whom I adore, Joe Pug, has smashed it on the regular too. Bit of a different track but I've bought a few of the performance streams put on by the Liverpool Philharmonic too. Tasmin Little's rendition of The Lark Ascending was a tearjerker.
  6. Sky news guy just commented on William Harrison's demise 31 days after taking office, and quipped "I don't think there's much chance of that happening here, haha" Mate. There's a pandemic on. Careful with your words!
  7. So wait, the eight-hour looping confession video and ten days of chaos is not happening anymore? Well goddamn it..
  8. Yep, this is absolutely my number one and basically only priority - being able to visit and stay with my parents.
  9. Yep, this is so evident where I work and has been in each different office, and sure it's the same all over the place. You get the long-term staff who have worked in the same office for 30 years bragging about how they "haven't had a day off sick" in 5/10/15 years (delete as applicable) but who will always say "Ohh, you really shouldn't be in here when you're that ill!" - and then when someone takes a day off, they'll be making out they're just skiving, which discourages people from taking time off. It's so unhealthy and unhelpful for everyone.
  10. That's wonderful news! Really pleased for you and your Mum.
  11. I absolutely get what you mean. Weirdly, my boyfriend and I were watching it for the first time last year around and over the time I should have been at Glasto. But aside from that, I think as you say it's the rolling countryside, and I think the slight hint of magic and mysticism of finding these things from times long past. Particularly the opening of season 2, with the 'flashback' with the anglo saxon. Easy to imagine such a time around the Tor. Also, probably just something about being completely at peace and in your happy place, in a field 🙂 Damn. Now I want to watch it aga
  12. I'm so sorry, that is so sad - for everyone closed to all those involved. You're a bright presence for everyone here, and I'm sure for your friends too. Hope you're okay.
  13. Yeah, my Mum's looking to book a house for us some time in the summer. As it's my 30th this year and Mum's 60th the plan was for the family to go to Italy (Mum & Dad, me and my partner, brother & sister-in-law and baby) but we felt that was no longer a likely prospect, so have turned out attention to somewhere closer to home. All those that were saying "just give up Christmas and wait *just a few more months*" ... well, that's what we're doing. Obviously we'll only be going in the end if it's permitted in the guidance, but we need something to look forward to. If I have to look a
