    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

    No, that's far too dignified. I'd google for a picture but I think Mr Google would think I was some kind of pervert.

    Oh yes - I forgot about the "presenting" bit!

    Our house was basically three months of "Yowl" "No" "YOWL" "NO" "YOOOWWWLL" "GET OFF HER!"

    Fed up with those """""" neighbours and their excuses, after being fobbed off so long I got council involved and got a cheeky note through my door stating they are having a party tonight AS IS THEIR RIGHT TO DO SO.

    So decided to blast my music out and see how THEY like it.

    Its all thats stopping me just thumping them.

    I wish! Rocket basically wanders round the house trilling and yowling - especially at night. She is massively affectionate - especially at night and early morning.

    It's very, very noisy!

    My internet cut out when I was in the middle of typing an important email. The save draft thing has only saved the first of three paragraphs (I assume the 'net cut-off while I was typing and I didn't notice), so now I need to remember what I typed.

    The scavengers grabbing everything and barging people out of the way around the whoopsie section in Asda. Never seen anything like it before. One staff member found it great entertainment and was just stood there laughing while their colleague struggled to stay on his feet while reducing stuff.

    My brain won't shut up. I'm starting to wish I hadn't started looking into moving out, because my brain won't focus on anything else. The things I would do for a decent night's sleep...

    I still have a headache. I am pretty sure it's a sinus infection now.

    I have not been well since having flu back in early Jan - really, really getting fed up now.

    My mum bought some presents for her friend (who I've never met). She then started explaining how "we" needed to take the tags off, etc. ("we" means "you"). I told her I wasn't going to do it and she got huffy with me, saying she'd have to do it herself later. I already wrapped all the presents she bought for people at Xmas (including one of my own). She seems to think that because I already do all the household chores, deal with the bills, sort out repairs, etc., that I'm her PA. It's weird, I'm the one who's ill, but I seem to provide more care for her than she does for me.

    I just can't keep up with looking after an entire house, so I suggested that if I'm awarded PIP I could hire a cleaner to help me out a bit, since that's the bit I most struggle with. She said no, because she doesn't like cleaners. She refused to explain why. On the plus side, she's stopped complaining about the floor being dusty.

    Okay, maybe I'm not regretting looking into moving out.

    Do you think, if I listed ERNIE as my deity on the next census and maybe offered to perform rituals and exalt him, that he would give me enough money to buy a slightly less manky flat?

    Had to miss college today, been in severe chest pain from the noise, slept 13 hours in the end and only woken by one of the other neighbours (a junkie) ringing my buzzer demanding to get in, really hate where im staying now.

    Then got call from the council stating the neighbour has refused mediation, can't give me exact reasons but says theres no chance now of its happening.

    I assume neighbour has gotten upset at me not liking the fact she had a party to 5am last weekend and having over a dozen kids in her flat running about on laminate and a barking dog last night till 10pm!

    Somehow SHES the victim.

    I keep seeing all these FB posts from Christians about boycotting eggs that don't say Easter. Did I miss the bit in the Bible where Jesus squatted down and laid a chocolate egg?

    the fact that you cant buy tracksuit bottoms to fit people under 7ft tall. even alot of the kids range are far too long. we just want some for hanging around the house in.

    Anyway it wasn't jesus that laid the chocolate egg it was the easter bunny

(They look long on one of the photos, but they're not that long on me, especially not after they've been washed and tumbledried.)
