    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

    This shouldn't be an irritation but I sorted out some designer outfits that were stored away for special occasions and they no longer fit. I'm happy with the figure I have now but when I think about how much I paid for them and that a couple have only been worn once or twice, it does make me think hmmph!

    I don't have a 35 inch waist.

    I'd settle for either, but not both together please,

    You never know if your figure might change, and then you might regret it.


    I gave away all my big jeans and expensive bras when I lost weight a while ago, because I wasn't ever going to put weight on again, but then I was ill and laid up continuously in bed for months and months and months ( well, two years, really). and had to stop my exercise classes, and put loads back on.
    I could have done with the bras in particular.

    My daughter keeps sending me pictures of dried up river beds to show me what my face is going to look like when I'm old

    It is very slow this morning, I wonder if it's to do with the planned maintenance tonight?

    My irritation for the day would be that this site seems to be getting ever more full of spam, trolls or multiple AE accounts, which the forum team don't seem to have the resources to deal with, so probably worth taking a self-imposed break from here for a while.

    I think I may have tweaked my back a bit yesterday, over reaching to paint the top of an awkward piece of fence, it was hurting a lot this morning but feels like a different pain to what is normal for me at the moment

    Just logged on this afternoon and was hit with a wall of SPAM.

    I'm trying to report fly tipping on our council Web page. When I hit submit, it directs me to another page but there is nowhere on that page for me to report the rubbish! The cynical side of me wonders if they don't actually want to have to deal with it!
