    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    B&Q, you are rubbish! However, your lack of coloured gloss might have turned out to be a blessing in disguise, we will see!

    This is the bathroom. Under the bath, the sink and behind the loo was all boxed in and tiled over. Problem is you couldn't get the boxing in off without smashing the tiles off. So now I have the time to sort it I've taken it all off and changed it to tongue and groove panels so they are easy to take out if required. But I wanted to paint them the same colour as the door and windowsill which is "Willow", a green paint. But as usual B&Q have stopped stocking it.

    However, they did have emulsion in the same colour so inspiration has struck, I am going to try doing the panels in a colour wash so the grain of the wood shows but they will still have a bit of colour to them.

    You do know that some places do a colour match service, and you can get paint made up in any colour you want?
    I expect you do know.

    Yes, I could get it but had to order it. And I was worried the colour would be too.....solid? So a wash might be better. If it's rubbish I can paint over it!

    My irritation? Katie Hopkins has only just lost her job in the last couple of days.

    Still, I did tweet her this:

    Oh, and another MothballsWallet irritation: The Christmas TV schedules have been released and, from what I've heard so far, they sound like an absolute snooze fest... :yawn:

    I'll be watching YouTube or DVDs or listening to music instead.

    Or perhaps doing lots of Slicethepie or Qmee surveys to earn money.

    ParcelForce Track your parcel

    It says that my parcel is on schedule for delivery today. Somehow I doubt it.

    It says that at 06.47 I was sent a text message advising me that delivery would be today. I wasn't.

    It says that at 13:07 I was sent a text message advising of my delivery window. I wasn't
