    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

    Human being is imminent. I am irritated with myself because I'm only posting this in an attempt to distract myself from vomiting, crying or hiding. This is getting ridiculous.

    Yes, Penitent, you can do it! We're rooting for you!

    Think of us as on your shoulder, willing you on.



    I can empathise, though, because I do get a bit anxious when waiting for workmen, deliveries, etc.
    Not to the same degree, but I do get anxious, and most of the time it turns out to be not too bad after all.

    Over the last few weeks I have won several Lucky Dips with my lottery numbers. Just won another one.

    Enough with the Lucky Dips! It's about time I won a PRIZE!

    Thanks, guys, I have survived. I'm a sweaty mess and I feel like I'm vibrating, but I managed to not cry during the conversation (I'll take my victories where I can get 'em). Now comes the obsessing...I hate my brain.

    Missed a call from my GP surgery. Called them right back. They know what I'm waiting to hear back about, but they don't know who called me, so I'll just have to wait and see if they call back. Would it have killed them to maybe ask around the office?

    Five days ago I bought a hyacinth in a nice glass vase for only £3. It was in tight bud.

    In the warmth of my room it soon started to open, and yesterday it was fully open and scenting the room.

    However, as hyacinths do, it was leaning and drooping, so I stuck a stick in the vase and tied the stem to it with a loop.

    It was at its best and looked very nice.

    The loop came loose, though, and it was drooping again, so I pulled the loop tighter, and a bit tighter, and..............
    decapitated the bally bloom, which fell onto the floor.

    .






    I stuck it back in the earth in the hope it would last, but today it looks like it's given up.

    Oh well, I've still got the bulb, which might bloom again next year, if I remember to pot it.

    We had (was it) 60 quid once when it was for getting 4 IIRC.
    I'm well down on the supposed odds. . .

    Now onto 11th day of extreme noise from neighbour a seperate irritation is she either outright lies, shifts the blame or tries confusing me to get out of the blame, i.e tells me she is at work say 9-5 therefore any noise I hear in those hours can't be from her flat as shes not there, but in same conversation talk about how her babysitter is in the house for kids to come back from school. All forms of deflection, that party that lasted to 5am at weekend oh it was unplanned and she couldn't turn guests away as they went out of their way to surprise her, so a "unplanned" party the only day in months she sends her kids for a sleep over at their friends so the one day it happens is a "coincidence" yeah right

    Hoseasons. I've been phoned twice this week [courtesy calls allegedly] but obviously I've had my phone switched off to save the battery/ or driving/ or both.
    They eventually send me an e mail telling me I really should get :- 1. Travel insurance - £31 for one week, in Britain. 2. Cancellation insurance - £47 as we're all likely to fall ill/ die/ abducted by aliens usually just a week before travel.
    And I had to pay for the messages on voicemail.

    Runny peanut butter

    I filled the dogs toy with peanut butter for his after walk treat but the pb was so runny that when he tried to lick it out of one hole, it pushed ahead of his tongue and came out of another hole and is now all over my carpet

    Thankfully he spotted this and has gone back to lick it up.
