Dude, I have no choice in the matter. My mum goes and takes all my washing on a daily basis. If I ask her to let me do it myself she gets kind of hurt, because... I don't know why.

If I ask my mum to let me wash my own stuff, she lets me wash my own stuff.

Then I have to wash my own stuff :(

Forgot to add actually... Mum put up a status earlier today saying that my grandmother would've been 70 today. I have days where I miss her so much it hurts, days where I feel it's so fucking unfair that she had to die the way she did. Especially since there were arguements about me not seeing her often enough back then because of my former "gaming addiction". I'm glad I had the travelling today to keep me busy though. I'll probably never stop feeling guilty about that tbh.

Try not to feel guilty about it. I think everyone/most people feel that way when a loved one passes. My grandmother lived next door to me all my life and lived all alone. I could have spent so much more time with her than I did and I still feel bad about it, but I do little things like go and look after the flowers on her grave and it makes me feel a lot better :)
I'm sure she'd want you to be happy, don't be so hard on yourself!

Same here. Deep Purple are one of the few major bands that I like that I've not seen. I tried to get tickets to see Jon Lord's Durham Concerto at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, but it sold out immediately.


I've seen Deep Purple twice, but with Don Airey (and Steve Morse rather than Blackmore) both times. I would have loved to have seen the MKII lineup, but now I'll never get the chance. Same goes for the "Rising" lineup of Rainbow.

:(

I don't know the circumstances about your grandmother, but I know the feeling of guilt you have when you don't feel you spent enough time with her. Especially now.

See, a few years ago before my grandfather passed away (he'd be 82 this year), he fell down a small flight of stairs because he had a stroke. And then had another one in the hospital. So for the last few years until this May he's been bed-ridden in a nursing home. He couldn't walk, he couldn't eat without help, he couldn't use the toilet without help, he couldn't dress himself, heck he could barely talk. Thats how damaged he was.
When I was taken to the home to see him the way he was for the first time, it pretty much broke me. I have never seen anyone that miserable in my life. It was heartbreaking seeing how much he wanted to just die. And this went on for 4 years. I just couldn't bare seeing him like that. So I never did until this year. And now I completely regret not spending more time with him.


But, in retrospect, I think everyone wishes they spent more time with people that are now gone. It just means you're human. You'll be alright.





Sorry for the essay there. That was harder to write out than I thought :(
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Went to get new jeans, now feeling like utter shit about my weight gain and going up in size. It might be trivial but it's really upset me. Blah.

Might sound silly but buy the jeans in the size you want to be and use it as motivation.

I have jeans in that size, it's the size I used to be but I can't fit in them at the moment at all :( I needed new jeans because I can't comfortably fit into any of my old ones.

(This weight gain only happened over the past few months, fairly suddenly. Hence me being so shit about it)

I'd say just buy one pair in the bigger size for you to be comfy in now, as feeling like you're squished into a small pair won't help you feel better. That way you've got something comfortable you can wear whilst you're trying to lose weight and then you can get back to your old jeans once you've done it :)

also, if you lose weight, the bigger jeans will be super awesome comfy lazing about in jeans :D I'm wearing a pair at the moment
