Mmm, I haven't been visiting as regularly as I used to, but I often find myself reading posts on which I feel I'm too ignorant to comment.

We've been having similar problems over here, albeit very much illegal. I've also seen ads for garden sheds and even an inflatable mattress on the floor of a double bedroom - with two other tenants in the bed. Where is everyone supposed to live?

Hey ma, Catholics and acquaintances don't have a monopoly on candles, do it if you feel like it.

Still checking in regularly, even if I rarely comment!

Name: Eamonn

Location: Ireland

Age: 26

Current preoccupation: the usual what-to-do with oneself. Honestly this also covers the past preoccupation! But I'll stay away for the moment from the grand stuff of life to say that I recently picked up the mandolin again after several years, and now have to master the art of proper directional picking...

A much easier Housman poem to memorise:

    When the bells justle in the tower

    The hollow night amid,

    Then on my tongue the taste is sour

    Of all I ever did.

I know an older gentlemen who can recite over forty Irish poems owing to being forced to memorise them back in school. The result is sweet, but the process sounds like torture.
