    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

    Painful spasms in my left hand probably caused by having it in an awkward position all morning yesterday.

    Am annoyed because I got a pizza out of the freezer to defrost this morning (not one you can cook from frozen) and forgot I already had three convenience meals in the fridge.

    Arthritis

    Not content with already taking up residence in my neck, its now moved in on my left wrist and elbow

    Getting older is a pain, literally

    I had a couple of things to buy in WH Smith's last week, so while I was in there, I had a look round, and ended up buying three gadgety things as well.

    When I got home, removed the gadgety things from the Fort Knox packaging, they all turned out to be useless pieces of cheap carp.
    About £20 down the drain.

    Bloody Tesco

    Last time I went (fortnight ago) I bought a pack of hedgehog food. Today they had none on the shelves so I asked an assistant and she said it had been "withdrawn from sale due to the space being needed for the dog and cat Christmas stockings"

    So that meant an unscheduled diversion to Pets at Home where they did at least have some on the shelves, even though the price would seem to suggest it's gold plated

    This unscheduled diversion....the A4 was down to 1 lane while they do yet more road works causing a massive jam that stretched back a couple of miles so took ages to get there and back, that has made me very late getting home and now I can't be arsed to take the dog out
