    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

    Got an answer from MSE Towers about my lack of a spam button.
    Apparently I am part of a 'group' of members that has had the spam button removed.
    Can't say that I'm thrilled about that

    I blame Madame Sleazoir - she must be responsible, because after I unfairly accuse her of moving it from it's position in a pile of umpteen other letters, and go on at her, it will almost certainly magically appear! Happens every time, and it's never there the first time or ten that I look!

    Or I could blame Brexit of course......
