    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

    Oh, dear, owing to weather warnings Anglia are cancelling 'services'.

    Why can they not cancel 'trains'?

    Unless they offer other 'services', of course. Hmmm.

    People that panic on forecasts of snow then clear the shelves of bread Do these people actually have food in the house? I have enough food to last me 3.5 weeks - maybe not things that go together, but something

    You can live without bread for goodness sake. My parents have a couple of those bread mixes which take up very little space in the cupboard.

    Well, if you don't mind me joining the thread, my right arm has been playing up for about three weeks. Only when I turn it, or lift things like a heavy pan, but it's rather annoying. No idea what it is, or what's caused it, either. Too trivial to see the quack about (probably an internal bruise or something) but irritating, nonetheless.

    I'm not a doctor either which is a good thing considering the number of seemingly decrepit contributors to this thread.

    Had a migraine that lasted from when I woke up on Saturday morning to when I went to bed on Sunday evening.

    I have been having 'one of those weeks' with my Crohns disease and that was why the hospital wanted the sample.

    Due to the light headed feeling I get from my sleep kit I lost track of time last night, assumed it was 1am and even then between 10pm-1am felt more like 30 minutes than 3 hours then looked at clock and it said 2.15am! really I am feeling so light headed on this kit

    Wanted to go to bed anyway but realised had to be up at 9am which I did though felt exhausted, quickly had a shower and went out of the house at 9.25 some junkies/alcoholics already off their faces at that time of morning and bus arrived and thought I will be a few minutes late, got to appointment 1 minute late to find I had the wrong day.

    Well I think that was more the person giving the appointments fault as I have been going on a Monday for the past month and they told me it was earlier this time as they had another appointment, turns out they meant 10am Wednesday!(which I can't do)

    So could of got a better nights sleep, and also if I had known I could of made a same day doctors appointment rather than wait till Friday and hope I get one!

    EDIT : Oh and just as I finished typing that I heard the dog barking non stop and still going as of now, heard a woman shout at the dog and booming male voices. So much again for the neighbour claiming her dog doesn't make noise and she never has male friends round.

    Its annoying there because it happens to be on the day off I have where I got up early and its being ruined by the neighbours.
