    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

    Disappointed more than irritated

    The resident pair of swans on our lake. After the resident male spent most of February seeing off an interloping male our pair disappeared, I assumed to make cygnets. However, they didn't reappear after a few weeks and I started to get worried.

    Then one evening a few weeks ago I caught sight of them on a neighbouring fishing lake, the female was just getting into the water, the male was standing guard. I then assumed they had relocated to have their young on a much cleaner lake and the young were already in the water, out of my line of sight. (The Anglers Association pay for an oxygenator to be used on their lakes to ward off the blue/green algae that invades every summer, thus giving better quality, cleaner water in the fishing lakes).

    But.....they have now reappeared on the main lake....no young

    I can only assume they either didn't manage to reproduce or the mahoosive pikes in the fishing lakes ate the babies

    Nothing is irritating me one jot; all is serene and I look forward to new adventures in the weekend.

    A couple of minor irritations to get in before this thread goes the way of it's predecesors.

    Made jam today and it has not set properly so I may have to boil it up again.

    The dog just jumped up at me while I was injecting my insulin and the needle broke, I managed to get it out with tweezers but it was very messy and I'm not sure just how much insulin got into my system.
    Every man is innocent until proven broke.

    The needle itself is 0.25mm dia by 6mm long and of course it was right in when it broke so I had to do a bit of digging with the tweezers and that was what caused the mess

    No worse really than taking a slither out of your finger but with this one there was nothing actually above the skin.

    Reminds me of a year ago in hospital with nurses trying to put in a line...if they failed twice (fairly common) then someone else had to have a go.
