"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

What trend do you find annoying?

Is there anything that is popular at the moment that you find annoying? For me, it's the way that certain things are shared on social media, as it feels as though all I see at the moment are pictures of things that people have shared rather than anything that I actually want to see, like what my friends are up to.

What about you? What do you find annoying?

    I find the obsession with gazing into mobile phones particularly annoying. Some people don't look where they are going, and in restaurants and cafes many people sit and don't even talk to eachother.

    Yes that's true. I hate it when I meet up with a friend and they spend the whole time on their mobile phone when I wanted to catch up with them!

    I find older people don't tend to be like this. The past few days in Cornwall, I've found far fewer people who are looking at their mobile phones. But I have seen fewer young people.
