    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

    Schools breaking up tomorrow. The naughty kids never go on holiday and they and their parents spend more time at my work. More time screaming.

    Roll on 28/29 August. Then means less than a fortnight before my holiday

    Annoys me too.
