    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

    It makes more sense.
    Trouble is with locking / unlocking is it's a bit like striking a match to see if it will light.
    Well not exactly perhaps but it's an absolute. locked or unlocked.
    You have my sympathy though. I have a bit of trouble with getting it through to myself that doors are actually locked.

    Mine has a second press to double lock. No alarm on mine. Not too much of a problem here hopefully.
    If you leave it for x seconds though, and press lock again, it just rapidly flashes the lights. It's a reasonably modern Peugeot.

    There are a few things it doesn't have that more modern cars do.

    For instance, I'd like it to automatically shut windows and sunroof when I lock it.
    I'd also like it to have automatically retracting wing mirrors.

    I'd kill for a heated front windscreen. (I loathe spraying/scraping ice).

    I'd also like it to sense when I'm returning to it and then shout "Hi gorgeous! I've really missed you!"

    It hasn't got many of the niceties that proper modern cars have though. It's a Peugeot Partner Tepee. basically a posh van with windows. We like it. It's very practical, and "high up" compared to a saloon.
    We're luck enough to be able to garage it, so the ice scraping thing is rare.

    The weather people on UTV

    I swear they are positively gloating whilst telling us how cold we are going to be this weekend

    One even said ' you really won't believe how cold you are going to feel this weekend'

    I'm feeling like I want to throttle him

    It amazes me that Melania hasn't slipped a cyanide capsule in to his milkshake yet.

    Well, we've had really cold weather before.

    Apparently the last arctic roll of doom thing we had was in 2010.

    I think I can vaguely remember it, but only because my car wouldn't brake at a crossroads and just slid on the ice into the middle of it....... very scary, but luckily, no cars coming across from either way.

    Why does my tablet connect to WiFi better when I am in Wetherspoons?
    Wouldn't connect properly when I was away, wouldn't connect at home this morning, but seems ok here .... (maybe I'll move in here).

    On a plus note, I had been referred to a weight loss program and my first telephone appointment with the nutritionalist was yesterday. She told me that my fairly regular Wetherspoons breakfast of either veggie sausage rolls in a bun or scrambled eggs on toast were ok.. She did comment that I ought to change the Latte's for something less calorific though , so today I've been on black coffee with a little milk added.

    Now I'm irritated because I've talked (sic) too much ...

    I don't believe it!

    I've bitten the inside of lip again this morning.

    Not once but twice!!

    All this biting of my mouth seems to be when i'm eating/chewing bread or toast.

    Maybe it's time to give it up?

    Don't those muppets have enough of our money? I mean, Sport Relief is going to be starting soon (if it hasn't already)...

    Thankfully, I'll be doing everything I can to avoid Sport Relief thanks to its connections to the BBC and all the Yewtree investigations.
