    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

    What you need is a cordless phone so you can just throw it at him

    I have injured myself yet again. Very painful neck and shoulder on the left hand side
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    He's started working with headphones on so he can't hear the phone ring

    I'm annoyed by the new guy at work. I'm sure he's good at his job but he's a right know-it-all and a few of his emails have come across as though he thinks that nobody else knows how to do their jobs.

    This is a slightly odd irritation. I'm not religious, I don't believe in ghosts, I'm not superstitious (unless you count OCD rituals). Despite all this, I always feel mildly comforted when I find the odd hair/whisker belonging to my late cats. It's nice, but I don't really understand it, and that makes me a little crazy.

    The hair gives you a reminder of the affection you got from your puddy-tats, and it's that memory that is comforting.

    Nowt wrong with that.

    Maybe it can be optional? A sort of free-floating day that you can capture and harness to whatever function you want it to have?

    Good news - Latey McLateface is on annual leave so I don't have to look at his stupid dumb lateface for a few days.
    But my other colleague, (who doesn't have a nickname yet, suggestions welcome) is working hard to fill the irritation void.
    He's started working with headphones on so he can't hear the phone ring which is a pretty idiotic move when a big part of your job involves answering phonecalls.
    And then when I have to put a call through to him I have to shout his name repeatedly until he finally hears me, pulls one headphone out and says; "Hmmm?"

    There's a scary bright yellow thing in the sky and I have to go outside. More of the pleasant grey dimming things required.

    Me and the OH have just sat outside on our bench having coffee, looking at the hills, and feeding a robin. Just about warm enough without a coat in the sun and out of the wind.
    Very nice it was too.

    Do you prefer the glass doors on modern front loaders, or the solid lid type on twin tubs?

    "Your washing is finished, would you like to take it out?

    ...Ohh! hohoho! You didn't think I'd let you get away that easily did you? Oooh cheeky!

    No, you and me are going to spend some quality time together standing pointlessly in the kitchen."
