    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

    Perhaps a haggis had escaped from the zoo?

    Those aren't proper haggises. Their legs are all the same length!

    They also seem to use farting in the same manner that squids use ink. Or maybe for a speed boost.

    The space bar on my keyboard is making a funny noise, I tried to repair it and made it worse

    Even when you start a thread by admitting you're an idiot and you made a mistake, there's always someone who feels the need to point out that you're an idiot and you made a mistake.

    Woke up 9am today to feel better, heard that noise till about 12, then it calmed but started feeling groggy as if I ate something bad.

    Guess it was the curry I had last night, and still hasn't gone away.

    At least I got my first post in 4 weeks today! (well special delivery item and some junk leaflets, no actual mail for me)

    I'm having no luck with tea today.

    Cup #1: gave the teabag a squeeze (shush ) and it exploded, so my tea was full of bits.

    Cup #2: left it to brew and promptly forgot about it, so it's now cold (will microwave it after dinner).

    I seem to be doing the cup #2 thing a lot lately. Need a new brain.

    We 'need' a storage box for balsa wood. It has to cope with 3' long (90 cm) chunks of absorbent wood, so needs to be lidded & sealable.
    Wrapping paper boxes are a mere 2' long & the Christmas Tree box can cope with an 8' tree but is Far Too Big.

    I'm wondering if you can get a Body in one...

    I believe the two species of haggi with different lengths of leg are the highland varieties, (the clockwise and anti-clockwise varieties), due to walking on slopes, etc.

    However, I believe there might also be a lowland variety that has equal length legs.

    What a day!, had a parcel to post 3 miles away but 2 buses to get there 3 if I go to town first, had some things to sell in town first so decided to give enough time for it but was sidetracked a little so only had like 35 minutes in town to sell my items, still thought tolerable as wanted to put the cash from the sale into bank before it closes at 4.30

    Told some problem in store and to wait 10 minutes no more than 15 and they would call me across, I waited at least 20 and then went back to till myself, meant by time I got off 2nd bus I missed the once a hour connection to where I was delivering the item (I sold something and costs nothing to hand deliver) then I thought I had 20 minutes till bank closed so went there first, turned out bank closed at 4pm despite website saying 4.30!!!

    Thats the worst that happened today as such, but also everywhere I went kids everywhere as shops busy, when I got to first town I barely walked 100 yards before kids ran into me, barely 10 feet more and more kids, then barely another 10 feet, then when I was waiting in that shop kids kept running into me and not one time did their parents tell them off.

    Old person pushed in front of me at all 3 bus stops I was at today as well, but one of the most annoying things in one sense was I got my daily sandwich and drink before final bus home, I bought a lovely new white bath mat, my drink dripped onto corners of new mat so looks like it needs washed already before its even on floor!

    I have eaten approximately everything.

    Also, I set a load of alarms to try to prompt myself into following a routine. I didn't do any of the things at the proper time and didn't do two of them at all. Um, try again tomorrow.

    Some of my nails are a bit long and making it awkward to type. I know the solution is to cut them but I need them for scraping off the odd splashes of paint I keep finding

    Fell over again
    Dog was to blame this time, he went chasing after something and pulled me over I wasn't watching him and he had run to the full length of the 8m lead so had a good head of steam.

    I've lost count of the amount of times Bailie's had me over And yes, those extending leads are brilliant until the dog pulls at full stretch then once they do you have no control Bailie wears a head collar as well but still manages to pull like a train, it must hurt her but...no sense, no feeling

    Ooohhh, forgot to ask, are you OK? No bones broken?
