    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

    The drunken teenieboppers have been at it again
    Empty Buckfast bottles all over the place and wrecked rubbish bins with their contents strewn all about. These bins are chained to a post and have a concrete slab fixed to the base but the kiddies still managed to smash them

    Was just doing an online survey where you had to play an audio file then select which animal you heard from the multiple choice answers.

    Even though I knew it was cows I chose sheep

    I'm tired, and I really wasn't in the mood to start yet another survey only to get kicked off after 10 minutes, so maybe that subconsciously affected me?

    Last night, the noise started just before 8pm, went on past 3am apart from a calmer period from 1.30am-2.45am where I heard loud drunken noises outside, I reckon they went for a drink.


    At the 3am point I dragged myself to bed and managed to sleep though the noise though took me almost anohter 45 minutes due to the laughter


    Today woken about 10.30am by over half a hour of hoovering on laminate with hoover smashed into walls, guess the lady was hungover.


    Going to report this to the council again, its not on, I was away Monday-Thursday and they have had extreme noise every night since then.

    My fingers were so cold when I came back from walking the dog that I could not get blood out to test my sugar levels and that was with wearing gloves when out

    It's not like you can even sponge it off with a paper towel, the unctuousness will have seeped in to every fibre. The smell must be overwhelming. You should have been sent home on compassionate leave, really.

    We have no kitchen, it's in bits in the garden. Day one of a three week replacement schedule and fed up already.

    The cat is having his dinner in the living room. He's actually coping better with this than we are!

    It was hot, I had just ate two slices of bread with when I thought of a simply hilarious comment to type into the chat window at work, in typing that I knocked the soup over, it was slimy and had lots of shredded chicken in, not a great look. I have since noticed these jeans have a rip in the !!!! as well, basically I am a tramp

    Lovely!

    For me - a couple of weeks ago, I read that it's important to keep your balancing muscles in good nick so I did a quick stand-on-one-leg test and my left leg balance is so laughable that I couldn't even last one minute.

    I googled tips on how to improve and one easy idea is to stand on one leg while you clean your teeth then swap legs at the next cleaning. Great, I though, I can do that without much effort or extra time and it'll soon become a good habit.

    Well, the right leg teeth-cleaning balancing act is going ok.
    But my attempts at left leg balancing are covering my bathroom in toothpaste as I flap about trying not to fall over.
    It's on the taps, it's sprayed on the mirror, it's in globs all over the counter, it's dribbling down the front of the cabinets and it's splatting on the floor.
    It's not going well.
