    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

    Right leg pain moved down at base of tibia, towards inner side. Combination of walking on uneven surfaces on holiday - esp Mostar and running about at work on feet all day as my team leader went home sick and not the other TLs knew all the procedures in my department are to blame.

    I'm so sick of the number of Daddy Long Legs spiders in my house at the moment!

    There is one on the outside of the window next to my desk almost at my eye level mocking me right now!

    I just prefer them to stay outside and not come in my house.

    I went to bed the other night, turned off the light and then heard one flying around the room!

    "Guns don't kill people, people kill people".
    Of course, guns have so many other totally harmless uses. If you fill a sack with them you've got a perfectly adequate pillow. Or, you can shoot a bowl of egg whites to create an easy meringue. Or...um, well it is mainly killing things, isn't it?

    Had to put up with a lunchtime dentist appointment to get a filling only for them to just put in a temporary one. I have to go back in 3 weeks to get the job done properly and guess what itís a lunchtime appointment again.

    Blooming iplayer is freezing and/ or buffering all the time!

    I've arranged an upgrade to fibre, but am a bit cross. Surely to goodness we should be able to use one TV in a house without trouble?

    The mass mourning and even worse, the candlelight vigil for the victims of the shooting in LV, it seems almost as artificial as the city itself.
    I know I should just ignore the coverage but it is everywhere and difficult to avoid it

    I think it's an Iplayer problem. My internet is generally pretty fast and I can watch netflix/amazon/4od without any problems but I can't watch anything on Iplayer without it stopping to buffer several times. I don't know why, there's probably a fancy technical term to explain why Iplayer is a bit rubbish.
