    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Post your irritations!

    I had some yummy Twizzlers delivered at work today - I have eaten most of them. I feel sick. Not just a bit queasy but I actually wish I could go and be sick.

    I still want to eat another Twizzler.

    Thank you, you're both making me feel much better about my ability to eat stupendous amounts of cake. Well, my inability to stop eating even after I know I've had more than enough really...

    Well, they've done it to me again. Stopped producing something I really like.

    This time it's Sainsbury's Caramel Panna Cotta.

    Went into my Sainsbury's Local earlier, got a Prawn Makhani and wanted the Panna Cotta for dessert. Not there, no sticker on the shelf, so asked an assistant. Yup, my worse fears realised, they have stopped stocking them, permanently, having done a big shift of products.

    Now, given that I don't like chocolate, remember?, and a lot of desserts are too sickly, these Panna Cottas, (Panne Cotte?) were one of the few things I really liked. Sainsbury's had been stocking them for years and years. At one point they changed the recipe, and they became sickly sweet, so I stopped buying them, but then a while later, they changed the recipe back again.

    (Other supermarkets do Panna Cottas (Panne Cotte?) but they aren't nice at all, even though they look exactly the same. They are much too sweet).

    I am rapidly running out of things I really like.

    They still have them showing online so hopefully it's just that branch which have stopped stocking them.

    It's a shame you can't freeze them or you could order enough to meet the minimum spend for delivery and know that you're not going to run out of them any time soon.

    I was thinking exactly that. They are unfreezable.

    If it is just that branch, I will breathe a sigh of relief.

    I was right fed up when they stopped stocking my favourite Sacla pasta sauce across all the stores.

    And my favourite handwash.

    I'm expecting my favourite beer to go any day soon.
    And my favourite hair taming cream.

    Isn't that something made by Bernard Matthews and banned from school canteens?

    My bus journey home....

    First off I had a choice of two buses and for some reason my dumb brain chose the more expensive option. Then after seeing the cheaper option leaving the depot immediately I sat for another 10 minutes waiting for the bus to move....last person gets on and guess what? On a non full bus he decides to plonk himself next to yours truly, he also decides he needs two thirds of the seat assuming he must be some sort of giant I check and no this is no giant, you would have no need to sell your cow at market, buy some magic beans and grow a bean stalk to visit him. Anyway then the traffic decided to be hyper slow and busy as well just to rub it in. I sat there squashed up against the window with a face like Grumpy Cat thinking in my head "no it's fine I don't mind sitting on the window sill you just take the seat".....

    My irritation....I don't want to moan about the rain....but I'm going to.
    I don't mind the rain but when it's warm as well and you have to wear a coat it's a pain. Plus me wellies really make my feet hurt so I decided to walk round the lake as it's hard paths and I thought I'd get away with trainers. Wrong. Massive path-wide puddles

    The pre-cut salad I like has now been put in a resealable bag. What's the point of that? It goes brown approximately 10 minutes after you open the bag, so if you try to save it for tomorrow it'll be minging.

    Not exactly. I sometimes get it into my head that if I don't eat everything now someone will steal it or it'll go off, so I have to eat it all while I have the chance. It's one of my more annoying compulsions. It's worse on the days when my food's delivered and I suddenly have all this food in front of me.

    Now I think a lot of people have different thoughts on things.
    I cannot enter a crowded shop, I think all the people will take all the oxygen, Same with crowds.
    I am terrible with escalators, I just cannot use one if anyone else is near me. Not a good thing in many places that I have to go.
    So we are all different.
