    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

    The technology in my house which is ceasing to function in a sort of domino effect.
    As in, the desktop is on its way out, never mind there's always the laptop.......oh dear, the laptop isn't charging, where's the smartphone....the app needs updating - phone doesn't support the latest iOS upgrade.
    Etc. If I vanish completely, you'll know why.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    It was too hot last night so didn't sleep well.
    Had windows open and a flipping blackbird was giving it large at 4.30. I like birds, but just wish they would have a lie in occasionally.

    Of course at 7, she wants a lift to work ..... so no peace for the wicked!

    Cricket?
    Is this some sort of insect racing game?

    I expect the Aussies have got bigger crickets. . .

    The local council deploying any tactic they can think of to do people with health conditions out of their bus pass. They only issue them for a year instead of 5 years. They then require you to renew 3 months in advance effectively meaning they only last for 9 months. For me i had to call them and then they tell me they wont contact my gp anymore and I have to spend £30 getting proof from my gp myself. Then I have to call them again. So that will be another call where i am kept on hold for ages costing me a fortune. I think anyone who can afford bus fares who qualifies would say stuff it instead of going through all the hassle. This is no doubt what the council hopes people will do.

    The whole system is illogical. A wealthy pensioner gets a bus pass by default while somebody with a health condition who has a higher chance of being on a low income can be robbed of their bus pass even though the rules say they qualify. Or at least they are subjected to hassle and stress to get it.

    Had someone get on the bus who moaned at the driver for being late.
    They then spent ages rummaging for the means to pay, making the bus even later!.
    Oh the irony.
    People, the time to get your money, pass or phone out is when you see the bus coming, not when you are facing the driver.
