    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

    You are about the 5th person I know who's sprouted a cold sore in the last week - is everyone particularly run down or are you all snogging behind my back?

    Not helpful, OMT, although the person who sent it, probably thought it would be. At least it wasn't a link to some £100 a bottle miracle cure all drink x

    Well, thyme can have beneficial properties for some things, possibly respiratory conditions etc., but I think you'd have to drink a lot of it. Also, it would be better to use fresh thyme, and that means growing your own.

    However, Lupus? Where's the evidence that thyme can help Lupus? Not to mention the other conditions in the list of ailments. It also says thyroid problems. ???





    Edit. Done a bit of googling, and thyme does have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. It certainly wouldn't hurt to use it, but on a condition like Lupus, it would be very debatable whether or not it would be useful.

    The nausea is pretty constant. I don't vomit as much now if I stick to safe foods but sometimes, yesterday, for example, even they can aggravate things.

    Thank you

    Thyme & honey sounds delicious but effortful & all I've got is the back-to-school snuffle with bonus Dietrich voice. Oh aye & if I cough I apparently sound like a train hooting.

    When I feel well enough to give chase, I shall _admonish_ the youngest. If I remember.

    Went to a McDonald's at a retail park near Bolton recently. My dad sat at a table while I went to the counter. Some old bag working there hassled my dad saying are you just going to sit there.

    My dad decided to make getting a pork pie out of a packet to be like a krypton factor challenge and did this right next to my pot noodle and yes he did knock it onto the floor.

    How A$d4 manage to ruin even the most foolproof of foods such as salted peanuts.

    What is more irritating is that I've bought the exact same thing before and now remember how bad they were. I need "DON'T BUY ANY A$D4 OWN-BRAND PRODUCTS" tattooed somewhere prominent

    Whilst I understand that the logistics of timetabling for 1000's of students is difficult, my son's uni hours are so annoying. He has asperger's and really struggles with public transport so I drive him to uni and back, it's only a 10 minute journey. He's just received his new timetable and it's rubbish. He's got to go in for 1 hour on tuesdays and 2 hours on thursdays from 4-6pm
