Is this a veiled boast?  :D

If you mean my post then Oh no.... didn't mean it to be; although had had a couple of glasses of wine so wrote without thinking too much...The house has been a fridge for the past eighteen years, to the point of utter misery.  And it's in the Grim North, to boot . Single glazed, draughty windows that rattled in the wind; gaps in frames stuffed with folded sheets of A4 paper; panes siliconed down shut so bathroom and kitchen filled with steam when boiling or bathing.... it is a long awaited big deal.

Maybe I tried (and failed) to do two things at once. I'd read Grey's post further back saying we were only being kept alight due to Fun & Games and The Dungeon. (And a mention of people sticking a nose in and then leaving.) Wanted to say something about what's going on in my world at the minute rather than just leaving without doing...

My favourite ones are HOWARD LEIGHT Laser Lite Earplugs. They look like this:



Remember to change your earplugs often (daily, ideally), keep them in a hygienic place, wash your hands before putting them in. Occasionally give your ears a break from wearing them or otherwise wax can become compacted. Also, there is no guarantee you will hear your alarm in the morning, as the earplugs block out about 30 decibels of noise.

I use these and find them great! Can hear my alarm fine; use my phone on full volume.

 It's like all the hungry from the days and days when I didn't eat is ganging up on me. I can't shove enough in my face today and there is no food in the flat. I can't do a big shop because as soon as I get in the supermarket I immediately have a panicky meltdown. I've tried writing a list but I just have absolutely no idea what I need.  My brain is a horrible foggy mess at the moment, it keeps getting hijacked by all these intrusive thoughts.  I feel like I'm living in this weird Twilight fantasy world, and shaking my head back to reality is really difficult,the more I push the thoughts away, the more insistent they get and I keep getting dragged back into the wormhole. The other day I walked out the flat without my keys because I couldn't grab hold of a thought for long enough to get what I needed. It's a bit worrying really.
 Meanwhile I have a son to feed and absolutely no idea what I'm going to give him.
 Sorry about the moaning. Sometimes it's easier to vent on here, although I'm sure you all think I'm crazy.  God knows I feel it.

 For some reason I'm back on the old rollies again. I didn't smoke for ages, but suddenly I need the nicotine.

the thing about earplugs is you have to be extremely careful about ear infections
the plugs shut off noise but also natural inner ear function
plug that touches even a pillow or a duvet esp if a pet sleeps on the bed or if your fingers aren't completely clean and bacteria is introduced and then you seal that in for a night

instead of artificial foam products silicone or organic beeswax are best
ear drops with tea tree oil

and using lube with glycerine might encourage bacteria growth

In this country if guns were not allowed at this point, only the bad guys would have 'em. Since Hurricane Andrew in 1992, many women in Florida have hand guns. 25 women were raped in Miami. Can't google it as this was kept out of the news. Word spread through a female Broward County Judge who thought we should all know. That personally helped me after Hurricane Wilma when we had no phone service, trees in the roads, etc., as I had a rather tall, large, man outside my screened Florida room.  He hesitated when he saw my gun. The 4 women staying with me, as we do when these things happen, were quite grateful.

We have much crime for several reasons. One, population. UK,a little over 65 million;USA, a little over 324 million.
Even rats in a crowded cage go crazy.

gun murder is definitely lower in UK even % wise but there is knife murder, etc---still lower.
