    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

    Thank you, I came to the same conclusion. The concern was the paisley pattern

    That I've caught the last half of the last of three programs about the Camino pilgrimage (OK undertaken by celebrities, but) for the second time, and then it is followed by Michael Portillo on a Cornish train.

    I cant find my E cig

    I was using it whilst on the sofa last night. Usual and automatic routine when I go to bed is to unplug Mr Sukis e cig, plug mine in , turn of the tele and hit the nest

    So it should have been plugged in charged when I got up

    But nope, Mr Sukis was still there

    I have the sofa pulled to bits - not there

    Ive checked bathroom - not there

    Ive even ripped the bed apart - not there

    I CANT FIND IT AND IM MORE THEN JUST A LITTLE IRRITATED

    Hope you find your e cig Suki, and in the meantime buy a spare one woman, you know it makes sense!

    The short: Amazon and Yodel!

    The long: Ordered bird cage on Amazon from Marketplace seller on Prime one-day delivery which was supposed to arrive today. The seller sent it by Yodel next day delivery. Yesterday it was received at Hatfield sorting centre. Now one would think that from Hatfield it would be delivered by courier to me in Peterborough. But no, Yodel took it off to Shaw depot in Oldham!

    Why the delay is relevant is because my new green cheek conure is arriving by pet courier tomorrow and if there is no cage the courier will take it back.

    All is not lost though: I got a cage locally and I'll return the cage which Yodel is transporting all over the Midlands and recoup my money. As far as I'm concerned Amazon is done in now. Prime membership cancelled.

    Excuse me for a few seconds while I go AARRGGHH

    Constantly having to chase up various specialists to do with my daughter (social services, wheelchair services etc). Having an operation for her booked in, having the date of it changed, then having it cancelled all within a few weeks & still waiting for an update on when it might actually happen now!

    I was extremely busy at work today and the constant interruptions really didn’t help.

    Like this gem...(via text message)

    “Hi...can I drop in to pick up a xxxx form?”

    Me: “Yes, we’re in the office on Monday and Friday mornings, 9am-12pm”

    “Great! Can I come in tomorrow?”

    Me: **bangs head repeatedly on desk**

    Struggling for something to write in a sympathy card to my cousins on the death of my aunt

    She was 90, they are both in their 60s and I have not had much to do with any of them for 40 years.

    I did see my aunt about 12 years ago and one of my cousins came to my mums funeral 10 years ago.

    I am unable to attend aunts funeral next week due to other commitments that I am very loath to cancel/postpone.

    I feel rotten just signing my name on the card but I just can't think what to say.

    "I was so sorry to hear that Aunty Wizard had died, and I regret that I am unable to attend the funeral, but I will be thinking of you both."

    Then, is there anything you particularly remember about this Aunty? Something funny, or kind or helpful that she did for you? If so, you could add something like:

    "One thing I remember about Auntie Wizard was x years ago, when she..................... That has stuck in my memory all this years".


    Then, if you know that certain other relatives will be there, you could add:

    "Sending regards also to relative x, y and z.

    With condolences,

    Wizard"

    I'd just keep it fairly formal.
    "Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of your mother, my aunt.
    I'm afraid that I won't be able to attend the funeral due to existing arrangements I have which unfortunately can't be changed."
    (And sign it.)

    At least that's what I'd do.

    So I pulled the suite apart then decided whilst it was over the show Id vacuum it all, rescued a pile of cat toys and bits of biscuits, a dummy, a pen and 50p, tried to put it back together again and failed ( big corner unit and it all slots together ) so sat there sulking watching the cat attack the cushions until DH came home. Was when I picked up the throw to put back, I found the e cig

    That was the same throw that was the first thing I picked off the sofa and threw across the room

    Twathole ex has gone and got himself a puppy. I heard the news while sat with the cat on my lap, the cat he abandoned when he left. Can't believe he can so easily replace his beautiful, hilarious cats with a scruffy mongrel.
