    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 worse really than taking a slither out of your finger but with this one there was nothing actually above the skin.

    Reminds me of a year ago in hospital with nurses trying to put in a line...if they failed twice (fairly common) then someone else had to have a go.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    I'm running out of juice but didn't think to go to the vape shop today. The shop below me sells juice but it's low quality Chinese stuff.

    Not going out again.

    Have you tried doing a mono contact lens trial Coffeehound and Old Mother Tucker?
    Did not think it would work but it is brill.
    You wear 1 contact lens (in my case for reading) and the brain adapts and processes the information so you can have simultaneous short and long sight.
    You adapt really quickly.
    Ask the optician - SS do free trial on this.


    I was just fed up with needed umpteen reading glasses and putting them on taking them off all the time.
