    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 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.

    Try having seagulls crapping all over your windows night and day. And a landlord who refuses to a) clean the windows and b) put netting up to dissuade the flying fiends from nesting here.

    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.

    It's because I freak out about it raining and having to run outside. It's okay in the basket for a day, I've done it before.

    I did manage to convince myself to hang the sheets out since they dry quickly--extra points since I usually refuse to hang sheets out due to bug paranoia. Went back out to bring it in...a bird has done its business all over my fitted sheet, so it's back in the washer again.

    I'm annoyed with my brain. I've mostly finished the Great Room Swap ("mostly" because I'll undoubtedly be fussing about and moving things for days to come. I should feel happy now that it's over, as the process was a PITA and my hands are aching, but I've spent the last couple of hours trying to not cry over absolutely nothing. I prefer the rooms this way around, so I don't get what I'm freaking out over.

    Because we pay a service charge. Which used to include window cleaning, but then for some reason it stopped.

    I think you might be right. I was worn out before I even started, so two days of hoiking furniture and arguing with screwdrivers probably wasn't my best plan ever. I'm also struggling a bit with feeling like things aren't quite where the should be.

    I do love my "new" room, though. My "old" room was like a cell (bed, CoD, nothing personal), but now I've got all my books and ornaments and stuff around me.

    Wahay! 1000 posts! Yey!

    My empty headed friend

    We just met as me and Bails were coming back from our walk. The friend had been jogging, didn't have her dog with her.

    "Don't touch Bails, she has kennel cough, don't want your dog to catch it" Says I.

    "That's ok, I'm jumping straight in the shower when I get in, I can give her a stroke with no danger to my dog" says she. Proceeds to make a fuss of Bails.

    2 more friends and their dogs arrive. I pull Bails to one side, friend number 1 goes over and strokes their dogs and wonders why I'm shouting at her to "step away from those dogs!!!"

    Jeeeez

    Reminds me of the time on holiday when I was standing on a narrowish walkway with lapping water either side, and I kept wobbling! Having moving water on both sides was strange, and made my brain feel that I was on a moving structure when I wasn't!

    My dog!! When we're walking in the New Forest, great big open spaces, why does he spend so much time either treading on my heels or wandering slowly about in front of me.

    And I can't find the bag of jelly beans that I bought in Lidl yesterday

    Today's Money Moral Sleepy Penitent Dilemma: I'm knackered and lying on the couch. I want to go to bed and read, but that requires me to get off the couch. How can I solve this terrible conundrum?

    Also, I just realised "peni-tent" sounds a bit like a neologism for the structure a gentleman might form with his blankets if he became excited in bed. Now that I've noticed this, I can't unnotice it.

    ignorant **** of a teenager on a bike

    he was not riding it when I walked past with the dog, just sitting talking to his mates, just as I got passed them I heard him say 'watch the dog go crazy when I make a move' and sure enough he did a trick and my poor dog went crazy, they all laughed
