    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

    Or maybe we've entered an alternate universe where things are almost but not exactly the same ....

    But April is the time that Andrea said they'd be pulling the plug on the older green skins, and people who were on those would be put on the latest green skin, which I'm on anyway.

    If you're not already on New Masthead Fixed Width (recommended) you soon will be , unless you're on the blue one.

    It's funny, but I thought there was something vaguely different. Don't remember just when, but in the last couple of days.
    What though is another matter. TBH I don't take that much notice. The forum skin is "there", but unless it's particularly nausea inducing you don't "see" it.

    Is it perhaps brighter?

    Or less bright?

    Two of the old green skins that are going are 'bright' and 'less bright'.

    I don't know. I had the impression there was possibly something missing, but what I can't see. Then again I go on two or three forums, so I'm really not sure.
    I'm using the default skin.

    Dogs. Why do we have them? Why does it seem to be their main aim to kill us?

    I took Bailie out the front on to the green at lunchtime to facilitate peeing. She peed. Then she spotted a doggie friend that she wanted to say hello to so she pulled, really bloody hard. I pulled back and had it all under control until my feet lost grip on the sodden, muddy quagmire that is supposed to be the grass.

    It was like in the cartoons. My feet went from under me and somehow when I fell my legs and feet went right up in the air and I landed heavily on my back, mostly on the right hand side.

    The end result is an incredible amount of agony whenever I try to cough, sneeze, move, breathe

    Waiting for a delivery. I hate it. When something doesnt arrive at the earliest realistic opportunity i get more and more stressed for every extra day it doesnt arrive.

    It hurts just thinking about it!

    Might be best to be safe rather than sorry though ... hurting when you're breathing doesn't sound good!

    I'm probably bruised and winded, that's all.

    Annoyingly it's the same side (but at the back) that I injured a couple years ago, again by falling over I'd cracked a couple then and it feels similar.

    I hope you sleep OK tonight

    I do feel your pain though, my dog has had me over a few times now and one of them resulted in a cracked rib, I know what that feels like from past experience.
    It's not just pulling me over, I have fallen over backwards twice because he has suddenly stopped pulling and I wasn't ready for it then fell backwards because I was leaning that way when he was pulling
