All normal people can do is work and watch TV
Foreigners never realise life in the UK is not happy. Winter is basically 8 months so you can't do stuff; whereas in other countries most of the year you can be outside.
In other countries I can actually go out and do stuff like special events and maybe some theatre, but in the UK everything has to include a component for the ridiculous high property prices and high wages so it seems to me that all people do is go to work and then come home and watch TV. In a city I could find some special events and maybe some theatre. I once thought I could stay in the UK city in the summer, but it's impossible to find anywhere to stay; there are no temporary accomodation options and due to high property prices long term rent is still much more expensive that hotel rooms in some countries. In Asia I can select super simple hotels and in the summer in Europe I would free camp. I can stay with my parents village, but there is almost nothing to do. People just go to work and then come home and watch TV ... there isn't anything else to do cos it's either too expensive or too difficult to get to. There is only pub and one shop for 3,500 people in the village, but people don't use them as they are super expensive compared to the big super market in town. Work & TV. Sometimes I might talk to someone in the street but guaranteed they will be over 60 and more likely 70/80/90. The region is like an island not very connected to the rest of the country, it's not like you can go to the theatre or event in a city without becoming a car owner.
All normal people can do is work and watch TV .. Most of the joy in people's life comes from work. I like working. So in the UK I have often worked at festivals in the summer.
Bad weather and nothing to do. too cold, too expensive, too boring
Winter in the village sucks ..seems to me that all
