    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

    Christmas wall stickers. As someone I know moved into a property where wall art stickers were in most rooms. A total pain to remove. So which bright spark thought it would be a good idea to use the concept for Christmas?

    I don’t even know which section this should be in as it is so ridiculous.

    A Pennsylvania state house debate took an unusual turn when Republican representative Daryl Metcalfe called out his colleague for touching his arm.

    By the way, watch the reaction of the woman sitting next to Metcalfe when he starts.

    Baking a tea bread this afternoon, chopping up the dates, and the hazelnuts, rubbing the fat into the flour, adding the cinnamon, the eggs, the milk, the sugar and baking it for an hour or so.

    Only to find I'd forgotten the baking powder, so it looks (and will probably taste) like a housebrick.

    Kids, all year round but the run up to Christmas is a nightmare im no Scrooge but parents let their kids run about in shopping centres, train stations, town centres and they run in front of people and expect the adult to move and if you don't the kid gives you a confused look as if to say why aren't you moving right in parents/grandparents view and none tell the kid off.


    Last week had a hot drink spilled on me by a kid busy looking in shop window then start running and into me and didn't even say sorry, neither did the parents, walk down the street and another small kid playing football whilst yelling at top of voice, then just on from that another kid run into me.


    That and the parents, most often the mums pushing prams around and expecting people to get out of their way if not squash themselves into a wall so they can have enough space for 2 or 3 people on each side of them to pass, and if you don't rudely say to their friends about how the person who didn't move was ignorant/rude and didn't understand that a person with a pram has priority.

    Why is it that the job you think will be easiest turns out to be the most difficult?

    I had 1 tile behind the taps that was cracked. That'll be easy enough thought I. Would it come out? Would it heck as like. I ended up breaking the next tile as well

    Fortunately I'd had the foresight to leave a spare tile out in case of disasters such as this. Excellent thinks I, just put the new tiles in.


    But.....the ruddy tiles need cutting (I hadn't realised they weren't full size, been a few years since I tiled that bathroom) and in the interests of trying to keep as much clutter out the way as possible I put all the tiling gear back in the shed. And it's buried under 5 tons of other rubbish

    See you in about 5 years I would think

    Ah well, you see.....sort of like a catch 22 here.

    The whole point of me doing the bathroom was to replace the non removable bath panels with removable ones. Which meant nothing could be stored under the bath as there was no access.

    However, now there is access......but there's a load of insulation stuff under there to stop all the draughts so the tiling stuff is still in the shed
