    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

    Watching Victoria. The character played by Dame Diana Rigg - Duchess of Buccleuch was only 30 when she became Victoria's lady in waiting. So why cast a 79 year old?

    Not blaming Diana Rigg

    What is the mistake you make, out of interest

It just does not stop until you open the door " yes I know you have finished, I heard you "

    I am all aches and pains tonight, my lip is still sore from last week and my elbow hurts but worst is my left heel, the hard skin has split and I can barely put any weight on it to walk.
    Trouble is that my dog doesn't understand, he still wants to go his usual walks

    Why do I have "romance" dreams about the weirdest people?!

    Well, first of all my stupid brain read that as left hand and not left heel. So I was wondering why you were walking on your hands

    Secondly, I feel your pain, sort of. I've done something to me left ankle and it knacks when I walk. I've got it strapped up but it's still making dog walking extremely tricky

    My washing machine does that too. It has a timer on it so I program it during Economy 7. I thought the timer on it was the time it started, like my previous one. No, it is the time it finishes. As I discovered within a few days of owning the new washer.

    Their rice pudding that they keep where the cream cakes are is very nice. Costs though, it's £2.10.

    I like the Met one because it gives hourly forecasts and lots of detail about temp., wind speed, precipitation likelihood etc. etc.

    I'd say it's been pretty accurate most of the time, just has the odd blip!

    Seem to remember hearing the BBC are ditching the Met office at some point?

    I like this site for weather

    https://www.windfinder.com/forecast/manchester_airport

    Quite a lot of info in a digestible format. Sort of.

    My weather app is to look out if a window - it's either raining or going to rain. Worryingly accurate much of the time.

    Trying to reassure the family that a very short run down to London & back is Perfectly Safe Really. I'll be there about 4 hours & yet the stats are being solidly ignored in favour of gloomy prognostication, admonitions to sort life insurance (not that quickly arranged, child) & supportive questions as to where's the Will.
    Mine's absolutely fine & going to & coming back from London.
