    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

    I don't like spiders much, especially when it's dark, so i dare not read the new post on the spider thread. (But i kind of want to)

    Buying a book on EBay which was described as 'like new', only to find that it's in such poor condition I can only really give it to a charity shop. Faded cover, brown discoloured pages, spine creased, etc

    Also, not so much an irritation but a bit surprised to see that one of our regulars has been banned. Never seen him write anything that breaks forum rules!

    Helping a friend to deliver phone books after he hurt his foot should have seen me post on the smile thread about getting some pocket money but my legs are sore where the bags containing the books were rubbing so I am left posting on here instead
    Plus I have another day to do

    If you like I could post the sweet one here? It's a video clip.

    10 minutes ago heard a large group of people come in, heard furniture dragged in earlier to upstairs flat, and kids running and playing (its past 9pm at night and they have kids running about the entire flat!)

    Don't know what to think, are they having friends/family round late again or are they getting lodgers in hence the furniture being moved who have their own kids!

    Struggling to get motivated to go out and finish these deliveries for my friend
    I have 4 more 'walks' to do to deliver about 230 phone books, all are quite close to home but still the thought of the bags banging against my already sore legs is putting me off making a start
