    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

    Been to Lidl this afternoon.
    About ten percent of the other customers were walking around either talking on their mobiles or texting.
    What are they doing? Updating their FB page with "I'm in the veg aisle" or something?

    Had to rearrange a signed for item to be redelivered by Royal Mail on Saturday morning but I don't know when our postie will be round with it so I can't go to Morrisons or run my errands in town until they've been

    At least I've got plenty of milk for breakfast...

    Decided I wanted something from Argos, bit groggy today (over the cold but still tired) went out 3 minutes to 5 hoping to get a bus from main road to town, as I got there the on the hour bus that goes past my house arrives which slipped my mind so could of saved walking careful on the ice/snow.

    Got to town thought I was lucky as had 12 minutes until Argos closed, the item which I did reserve Thursday I couldn't collect yesterday as the store closed 2 hours early due to weather ended up being out of stock!

    Then went to get bus home after having my daily sandwich, I forgot as its Saturday the bus leaves 2 minutes earlier so I am about 25 feet from bus door and it pulls out! Never mind I think as a different bus that goes same route is due 5 minutes later, that bus was 4 minutes late!

    Not end of world just annoying.

    I had to stop before crossing a road on the way home this morning and of the 3 cars that I had to wait for, the first driver was using a mobile phone, the second driver was eating what looked like a burger in a bun and the third was drinking from what looked like a coffee cup.
    The worst of it was that all were having to drive slower because the road was icy and had not been gritted overnight.

    Read a link on Facebook from Wales online, pensioner couldn't afford hearing up their home - can't post link as it's open as an app instead of url.

    Anyway the 3 volunteers who noticed give Macdonalds manager 30 to warm up and for coffee for hours. Many commented McDonald's was disgraceful for accepting this - assuming it was just that visit, one of the trio commented it was for future visits also.

    Anyway someone posted couldn't the trio have just paid the 30 heating to last a few weeks - weeks?! I would take a guess a week at most if lucky 2!!! Not enough, daily visits to Mcdonalds keeping warm for a few hours will last a lot longer.

    Couple of operator error type annoyances.

    On Friday evening I realised my cordless drill/driver was a bit flat so I put it on charge. When I went to get it on Saturday morning it hadn't charged because I hadn't docked the battery into the charger properly

    And the last dog walk tonight....it's been raining all day, there is no way I'm gonna get away with trainers and non waterproof over trousers in all that muck. So, on went full wet gear, waterproof trousers, waterproof coat and the hated wellies. (I dislike wearing wet walking gear and wellies as they make me feel like the Michellin man, very bulky and restrictive, and the wellies feel like those weighted boots the astronauts or divers wear, so make my legs ache and generally knacker me )

    Anyway, at least I won't get wet thinks I. And I didn't.....until I walked through a deep puddle when I realised the left wellie had a leak around the Achilles tendon mark on the back of the ankle

    So now I'm not only fed up, I'm wet too

    I went to use my headphones for the time in ages, and they were fine for a while and then the battery went.
    And I don't know where I've put the charging cable for them.

    Decided to replace the screen on my old iphone (6 year old model in case people think I have a iphone whilst on benefits) should of been a 5-30 minute job, took it apart within about 2 minutes, had the screws organised for reassembly but couldn't get the new screen ti sit right, one of the 3 connectors kept popping off no matter what I did, after like 2 hours I decided to test my old screen to see if it had issues, connected it within 30 seconds so made me think there must be a issue with new screen.

    I did manage to connect the new screen a few times but it never held down so I knew the screen itself worked, and tested the old screen and each time got it on within a minute.

    Eventually managed to get new screen to hold down for a bit so screwed it in which was another nightmare, but now the touch part wasn't right and noticed one of the connectors had come loose again.

    Decided after that to put my old screen back on temporarily whilst I return new screen, but end up loosing all 3 of the screws that hold the cable in place, 1 of the screws that goes on the base of phone and 1 of the battery holder screws.

    And of course because how stupid iphone contacts are i can't just pop sim into a phone for a few days and have all contacts have to install itunes and upload them.
