    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 emptied and dismantled the wardrobe and I think I may now be dead. If so, I'm irritated with the afterlife, which seems to mostly involve lying down and having a sore finger.

    Hayfever. I thought I'd managed to avoid it this year because it hasn't been bad at all until now, but today I feel like someone has climbed inside my head and is aggressively tickling me with a feather.
    I keep doing very violent sneezes that startle cats and the elderly.

    Mind you, I believe you can get it even if you've been inoculated, just not so badly.


    That Bailie! I think she's secretly in love with the Vet; she seems to want to spend a load of time there!

    It's very contagious and one of those things where your dog is infectious before showing any symptoms so I have no idea where she caught it or who from.

    Problem now is she has to be kept on a lead and well away from other dogs for ages

    Ive been really busy all morning, sorting banking, including new account, paying credit card. Etc. Hoovered kitchen, conservatory and dining room and washed said floors.

    Slumped to have lunch and read the paper, when someone is clearly having a patio jet-washed! Like a giant hornet!

    I should probably be irritated at whoever decided it was a good idea to discard the chewing gum on the side of the bus seat I sat on this Morning but the best I can offer is a shrug at people these days...

    How dare they go where I want to go? Who gave them permission?
    You never see anyone over the tip in the evenings but today, because Bailie's got to stay away from other dogs it was rammed

    I have a newly located, cooler bedroom. Unfortunately, everything hurts and I've still got to sort out all the stuff in what's now the storage room tomorrow. Also, due to the height/awkwardness of some furniture, all my clothes had to stay in the storage room. I suppose I could pretend I'm posh and I have a dressing room/walk-in wardrobe.

    On a less irritated note, my new blackout curtains are wonderful. Very glad Argos does next day delivery.

    Irritating. Commercial radio or more pacifically the constant repetition of mind numbing commercials that seem to want to pander to the lowest common denominator within a society that seems increasingly unable to think for themselves.

    The statement "Be a stunner for summer" from Slimming World really grates with me at the moment, it implies (nay, states) that you can't be a 'stunner' unless you are slim

    I never, ever imagined that so much of my adult life would be spent telling cats to behave.

    Stop it.
    Stop fighting.
    Yes, well, you might only be playing but he doesn't seem to like it very much does he?
    No, you can't have biscuits for breakfast, stop clawing at the container and eat your meaty chunks.
    Put your claws back in.
    I ONLY BLOODY HOOVERED THIS MORNING AND NOW YOU'VE GOT FUR EVERYWHERE
    No, you can't eat the phone charger.
    No, you can't chew on the end of the charger and pretend you're a phone being charged.
    No you cannot have biscuits for....oh screw it, you can have biscuits for breakfast but don't expect me to pay your vets bills when you get scurvy.

    Why oh why do you want to go out again?
    And why don't you use the cat flap?
    And why do you use the corner of a carpetted room to wee, when there is a) an outside, b) a toilet tray with fresh litter, and c) failing a and b, a hard floor just a few feet away from the carpet you chose to wee on.
    So no, I am not in the mood for a cuddle.

    The weather is mocking me, It was bright and sunny this morning, so I put a load of washing in. It's now overcast, so the wet washing will have to sit in its basket until tomorrow morning. (On the plus side, I prefer to hang washing out really early to alleviate outside-related fear, so it's probably for the best.)

    Can you not put washing out when it's overcast? It will still dry. Better than mouldering away in a damp basket until tomorrow, I'd have thought.
