in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

Wow just seen this...16 weeks of having sole control of the remote and deciding what music to play next. It must have been good for a little while at least! But I do hope you are reunited on schedule.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

There's only so many times you can play Status Quo's Piledriver before you start wishing for your loved one to return :D

"Oh baby, been away for far too long." I'm actively avoiding playing it!

It's very strange. I'm not inclined to watch much TV - we don't watch much generally and when we do it's things we both like. The first couple of weeks I watched a few things but oddly I don't get the same level of enjoyment watching solo.

And strangely I've not been listening to much music, which is very unlike me. I've had a couple of days where I've listened to three or four albums but most days I don't listen to anything. Just despondency, I guess.

Still, I haven't got desperate enough to listen to Morrissey, so it's not all bad.

It'll be 19 weeks on Monday...

I hope to God it doesn't ever get to the Morrissey stage :cry:

Just when I'm letting myself feel optimistic Easyjet starts dicking around with the dates they put live only a fortnight ago. The flight I'm booked on disappeared from their schedule on Saturday.

This morning it's back on there but my optimism has been dashed. I won't be certain I'll be heading out there until I'm on the plane. I really don't need the stress right now.

My friends checked in last evening for their long haul flight back from NZ. I'm delighted for them.
Nonsense to the aggressiveness, I've seen more aggression on the my little pony message board......I mean I was told.

Thanks. That's a really nice thing to have said.

My flight looks to still be on the schedule. I just hope to God that there's no further lockdown. Well, unless it happens when I'm over there!
