    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

    So for the second week in a row, whilst walking across the park to go swimming i've had a group of kids shout at me and tell me i'm a fat !!!!!. Don;t get me wrong i've been fatter longer than the brats have been alive but it still makes me feel like crap. Its not like i'm not aware of the fact i'm fat (hence trying to do some exercise to lose weight). Its why i stopped doing couch to 5k cos i got sick of little brats making comments. I was bullied badly in school and every comment just takes me back there. Which is ridiculous i'm a 30 year old woman i shouldn't care what kids say. But it still hurts

    I have eaten EVERYTHING. I don't know if we're close to the full moon and my transformation is almost upon me, but I've been ravenously hungry and managed to eat a whole pizza (cheese feast, stuffed crust), followed by a Yorkie, followed by toast.
    I'm not going to be able to do my jeans up tomorrow.

    The workmen have damaged something electrical and Southern Electric have come to repair it. Our electric won't have to be switched off but the repair is outside my house. The damage was done at lunchtime, they've been outside, 3 vans, since 3pm. All they've done is stand around effing and jeffing and ordering their chinese. The work is going to start at 11pm and will take about 4 hours

    I understand not doing it at dinner time but it happened at 1ish. The building work will resume at 7.30am, it's going to be a long night and day

    Very irritated at being woken up at 2am by neighbour's dripping gutter. Could even hear it over the radio. Couldn't get back to sleep for ages.




    Apparently, fish sausages were made in mediaeval times.

    This is a mediaeval fish sausage recipe:-

    QUOTE
    Source [Koge Bog, Martin Forest (trans.)]: LV - To make sausage of chopped fish. If you want to make sausage of this fish then take cloves, nutmeg flowers, small raisins, saffron and mix it with each other. Make of it sausages each one finger long and put in seething water and let well seethe. When they are well cooked take them up and put over them a brown sauce. Take thin ale, vinegar and gingerbread, let this well seethe and throw in herbs to taste. If you want it quite good take good wine and small raisins (called corinths). UNQUOTE


    There a lot of recipes for them online, and some sound nice.

    They are made in Japan, and seem to be a traditional dish in Scotland.

    They were introduced during the First World War too.

    I don't know why I've never heard of them, in that case.
    (The ones in those packets look horrid, though. Even though they've been sterilised! )


    By the way, 'corinths' is thought to be the origin of the word 'currant'.
    Interesting, rather than irritating.
    Just saying.

    Still feeling less than my usual self but horrified by fish sausage photos, much intrigued by medieval recipe (saffron? Ye gods status foodstuff or what!) & wishing I could hug you MU!
    Them little mouthy blighters will eventually reap what they are sewing, but in the meantime, keep on walking, swimming, living a healthy (and intelligently MSE!) lifestyle and plan to enjoy the best revenge - a life well lived.
    Of course it hurts, but in the long term their folly will hurt them far more. Even as it don't half sting you at the time, but do plan for the long game.

    MU - I know it doesn't make it hurt any less but try to remind yourself that you'll always be lovely, whatever your size, and they'll always be stupid little !!!!!s.

    I'm irritated by how much it rained last night/this morning. I'm going to a festival tomorrow and am worried that the whole site's going to turn into a churned up bog.

    Sadly, people with weight problems seem to be the latest fashionable thing to 'bash'. (It used to be single mothers). The media has a lot to answer for. I hope you won't let it put you off going for your swim MU. Exercise releases feel-good endorphins.

    The correct retort is "I can lose weight but you will always be ugly"

    The amount of Thank You Teacher crap we sell.

    One of my friends is a teacher and they have asked pupils not to give presents. The school didn't reveal the reason to parents. She told me last year, one of them received 28 TYT mugs with 5 designs.

    I know that some think the teachers are ungrateful but how would you like it yourself. Then its storing them!

    I seen loads of TYT stuff in charity shops
