Ok first off I HATE living in a seaside town, miserable, seasonal work, cut off from the rest of the world, half the people have drinking problems, high suicide rates, you have to travel an hour to a city or buy on line if you want anything beyond food. (no clothes shops, a&e department etc), people have a very limited world view, university is to be frowned upon. (this is why I console myself with nice shoes..) and now to top it all off, it's damp, very very very damp. I first noticed mould on my books, then my gloves, then..... my paris 100 boots. Call me dramatic but i'm p*ssed. I'v just bought 6lbs of silica gel to try and combat the damp. excuse me while I go cry.
