    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

    I appear to have a cold, been feeling up and down for past week, and had a irritated ear at first, then dry throat at weekend today full on blocked nose.

    Snotty sniffers again. Is it really that hard to blow yout nose?

    I also need to consider my gloves, I need to take at least one off to get a tissue out of my pocket and use it accordingly but if I leave my glove off to be ready to get another tissue, my fingers get cold and that is not a good thing to happen for someone with diabetes.

    For about 2 years until last June, I was commuting almost 2 hours with 3 buses and 2 trains each way a day for work, and it was having affecting me.

    When you're outside it's understandable/acceptable but there's no excuse for the number of people who sit on trains/in my office and sniff every 30 seconds. Seeing as I'm on day 4 of giving up smoking I think it'll be a miracle if I see the week out without screaming at someone and lobbing a packet of tissues at them.

    My mum

    I have no idea why she does this. Sends me an e-mail with a link or two with - could you please order this for me - and if its clothing includes size and colour if more than one colour option. I understand that with Amazon as my parents share my Prime membership with me.

    Sent me an e-mail last night and stated they are £6. Went on the link and now they are £18! Why can't she or my Dad - who buys loads of things online order the items then? This website has no minimum spend.

    Found something similar on another website and its £1 less than the minimum spend. It took me ages to find something either for myself or Dad as sale stuff of things we liked weren't in our sizes - typical. In the end, I remember some slippers I was considering before Christmas, but they didn't have my size in the shop.

    Just googled nuisance koalas, and it appears they are quite good at getting into homes and garages.


    Someone came home to find this................





    QUOTE Their dog was barking at the koala, who was rather placidly ignoring the ruckus and seemed to be enjoying getting warm in a comfy spot on the sofa.

    The ladies took photos of and with their little home intruder while they waited for help to come in the form of the Hunter Koala Preservation Society care and rescue. Simone Aurino, a member of the group, arrived to relocate the koala, who was named Tuff !!!!!!.

    Aurino said that they are getting more frequent calls to help deal with “nuisance” koalas (really, how can anything that cute be a nuisance!?) that are getting on people’s roofs, and into garages and yards. She further explained that, “[t]hey’ve (koalas) got quite long talons and any cornered animal will defend themselves, so they (the homeowners) did the right thing by keeping their distance.” (I guess that explains the use of the word “nuisance”).UNQUOTE



    To be honest, I'd be delighted, although I might not be too happy if was destructive or pooed everywhere!
    All you have to do is phone the rescue people, and then make sure all your doors and windows are shut properly when you go out!

    I didn't think that people used them much nowadays. I normally just use my contactless bank card

    I've got a Season Travelcard on it for commuting which I buy using a cashback credit card so - plus I've had it since 2005 before contactless was around.
    I got the replacement sorted in the course of the day and transferred the season so I'm only out one bus journey. In theory I can claim it back - just need to get the evidence off the contactless card I used instead. What annoys me is there's no clue as to why it failed - I didn't do anything I haven't done hundreds of times before....
