    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 also find it irritating with some websites. When you reset a password, it gets rejected as it is either the same or very similar. So you remember Snuggles1 so change it to Snuggles2 - it refuses it.

    Then go and spend ages on thinking and remembering a totally new password.

    Politicians who scurry out their Westminster lair when there is an election coming up and promise you the World for four weeks to cling on to their grubby little power, proclaiming to stand up for the common working man....before scurrying back to their insular palace once the election is over.....

    Success with gmail at last. Not a coincidence that we've had a new router. The engineer took one look and said it was the cause of all our problems, albeit very recent, and replaced it.

    Must be more powerful as everything in full gear and a better picture on the TT television.

    But ........... when we got home and checked for message, damn landline wasn't working!

    Got it sorted. When I asked the adviser to ring me on it, as a test, she asked if I 'know the number of by heart'!

    That Tuesday seems ages away - the earliest I can get x-ray results and based on those, whatever is required.

    Though its my day off today, rang in sick so my supervisors got extra time to ring around colleagues or ask those who are in today to change their hours. if need be.

    Sky adverts on every channel at every ad break

    I realise that they are putting money into other companies pockets but there can't be many people left in the country that have not heard of them. If people wanted to pay for their crap instead of the crap the rest of us get for free then they would have signed up by now.

    So much rain.

    I want to return a library book and it's raining. Mind you, it's 12 years overdue as it is so I suppose a couple of days won't make a difference.

    Talking of adverts, the Macdonalds ad for the South Carolina Stack uses this image of a woman made up to look like Dolly Parton, do they not know that she is from Tennessee?

    This morning's 'Dontone's irritations'

    Getting emithers/seeing headlines about the following subjects -

    Pippa Thingy's wedding

    Cheryl Thingy's relationship/sprog/anything else remotely uninteresting about her, but needs to be reported.

    That Stephanie woman and that lad with the tattoos that keep breaking up/getting back together.

    I can't be the only one who really doesn't give a to$$ about these people. So why do the tabloids think that we want to know how much a toff's wedding is going to cost, or what daft name a celeb has given their baby?

    Or in other words............... WHO CARES?!?!?!?

    That's it for this morning Carry on.

    I have an under counter fridge and freezer.

    Fridge - always mostly empty

    Freezer - always mostly full

    So thought can I just replace the fridge with a under counter fridge/freezer but more storage freezer wise.

    Can I find one? No

    Can I buy another freezer? No, kitchen is too small and I have no shed/garage.

    I've spent years sporadically searching for a fridge-freezer with a little fridge and a big freezer (we use loads of frozen food, but hardly any fresh). Can't find one. There's loads of big fridge/little freezer ones, though. I just can't imagine having that much fresh stuff. Unless you have a family of 8, half of it would go off before you could eat it.

    If ever manage to move out, I think I'll end up with a tall freezer and a counter-top fridge.
