    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 6:20 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

    He has been a bit moody since the chemical neutering wore off and a certain lady dog along the road was in heat up until last week and that affected him badly as I think it would have been his first boost of testosterone from that side of life
    Vet thinks I am right not to get him neutered proper though as he would just turn into a whimpering wreck.

    Sounds like he got out the wrong side of his dog bed this morning.





    Honestly, I just want to stick my earphones in and hide, but I've got another bloody parcel due. Why do I order so much sh*te? I'm just trying to keep myself distracted (idle hands are not my friend).



    Were you actually in? Did you suggest knocking instead of taking a photo next time?

    I don't know where else to put this but bit of a shocking story of a 9 year old dying from Flu, you would not think it was possible for a kid that age to be killed by Flu

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-45874198

    I usually get the flu jab every year just in case....

    That actually reminds me: when I called customer services to find out what had happened to my parcel, I told him I had no idea where the place in the photo was. He said, "Well, I'm in Newcastle, so if you don't know where it is I've got no chance!"

    It was a bit weird because the automated phone thingy told me it was putting me through to my local depot--my local depot is (I think) in Birmingham or thereabouts.

    I'm irritating myself, I wish my brain had an on/off switch. I live in a housing association property, the electrician's coming next week to test the electrics, it's a 10 year check up, and they've now phoned to make an appointment for a surveyor to come as we're getting a new kitchen. Whilst I'm really grateful to get this my anxiety is really bad and I've got about a million things going round in my brain.

    I'm determined to keep the appointment but I've got so many questions about how I'll manage without a kitchen for 5 days and how I'll cope with 4 strangers in my house

    The 380 bus I get every night decided tonight to park on the stand used by the X20 meaning of course the Identical looking X20 was parked on the 308 stand, this idiot jumps on it, pays his fair and realises it is heading towards the Motorway rather than the normal way, just before it gets to the Motorway it stops at some lights so I rush downstairs to ask what bus it is, X20 he says and apologises for being on the wrong stand, he then did something he probably should have not and said I could jump off there, so I jump off and I am stuck in the middle of a two lane road and between me and the road is another double decker bus with a driver watching the lights and not expecting a pedestrian on his right hand side, anyway lucky for me he caught a glimpse of me just before the lights changed so I ran across in front of his bus, to say he was not impressed would be an understatement, anyway as I had then spent all my change I had to walk 4 mile home. Got home and found MSE telling me my ip was blocked a reboot of the router seems to have fixed that, this really is proving to be a !!!! of a week

    Edit: Not sure where the Fairy Lights quote came from be nice if she returned to these parts though

    Stuff that turns up in your house and you have no idea where it came from.

    Yesterday it was a fork in a design/pattern I have never seen before. It was just sitting there in the fork pot. Pretending itís been hanging out with all the other forks for years.
    Where has it come from?!

    My irritation for this morning is that I can't think of where to go on our long walk today, I have nothing specific to do.
