It brought home to me how much background noise I usually live with, even in what is a quiet place. I tend to have the radio chattering away all day long without really listening to it, but today I didn't bother. There's a sort of background hum in our lives all the time that we don't even notice; the fridge rumbling gently, machines switching on and off. I found it not as unpleasant as I'd feared but could I stand it all the time?
All right for a while
