Perhaps this should be written in neon lights on the MW strap line -as a reminder
I like the idea of your 'most stressful' thread/poll bbh. That one has to be right up there. I was clutching my saltire like it was a comfort blanket and couldn't put into operation the usual coping strategies I use in the privacy of my own home. Actually by the end I had become oblivious to the fact I was in public I was so stressed so I dread to think what I was doing - but short of closing my eyes there was nowhere to run nowhere to hide. Unfortunately those immediately round me weren't really caught up in it the way most of us were.
Lol know exactly what you mean. Was clutching flag, leaping up and down, yelling, pulling at m hair- -totally forgot I was in public but like you say, very different to being at home where you can pace up and down etc. Very stressful match tho ultimately wonderful.
