    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

    Now, I know I had a bit of flat-packing to do, but I kept the banging to a minimum, didn't start until after 10am and stopped before 6pm. The bloke who moved in just after me is hammering something now. It's nearly 10pm FFS. This is the same neighbour who doesn't understand the concept of closing a door and has been repeatedly banging the communal door so hard I can feel the vibrations.

    Why not knock on his door, ask to borrow his hammer, then don't give it back?

    Knocking the door isn't an option, unfortunately (mental health stuff). I'm going with the fine British traditions of tutting and seething.

    This morning when I walked Bailie it was hammering with rain. It's too hot to wear full wet gear and I couldn't wear a waterproof coat without wearing waterproof bottoms as the rain runs off the coat and makes your trouser legs wet.

    So I opted for wearing just a normal, non waterproof, coat. Wrong
    The rain went straight through the coat and soaked me through to the skin within about 5 minutes. And me bottoms got soaked as well
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I know what you mean though, I did most of my dog walking yesterday with no clothes on under my waterproofs, just my undies and socks.

    Yeah, that's the sensible thing to do but I'm a bit paranoid about something happening to the bottoms, like them ripping or falling apart and then I'd have to do the walk of bottomless embarrassment

    Having seen a day & a half of my annual leave devoted to driving from town to town hiking around charity shops for stuff for son to move into his own place with, my husband now has ironing board envy.

    I tried to watch Notting Hill, having heard such good things about it for years. I lasted a whole 14 minutes. It's utterly mind-numbing.

    I think this is the only one of his lots-of-famous-folk romancey things I've seen...I might have watched Bridget Jones a few years ago--I genuinely can't remember if I watched the actual film or just a trailer for it.


    Didn't he write Blackadder? Blackadder is brilliant, but this is just...it's the film equivalent of toast that hasn't been toasted properly, so you've get yourself all set up for toast and suddenly you're just eating warm bread.


    Hugh Grant just seems to be playing Hugh Grant.

    Those films are always a version of Britian that I do not recognise, maybe they are meant for the American market with those Wacky Brits

    I liked Blackadder, nice poignant ending....

    if it was Richard Curtis toast it would probable come with crushed avocado on linseed and quinoa bread

    You know, I rather like avocado, but I've never had it on toast. Maybe it's because I'm at the wrong end of the millenial age range? Wait...I had guacamole on toast once! I'd bought it to try and wasn't sure what to do with it, so I stuck it on toast. Does that count?

    I can't get on board with quinoa, though. It tastes funny and it looks like some kind of worm egg.

    Mrs. Sleazy delights in telling me that she doesn't do ironing, and that I do it better. I can't argue, but I just don't do it.

    I look like a sack of potatoes whatever I wear anyway.

    Squeeze me you two. I bought some quinoa and berry stuff yesterday and was planning to 'enjoy' it tomorrow!

    I've had quinoa before and find it 'ok'.

    I have lots of irritations today.

    A couple of threads have irritated me.
    A weird word.
    I've got food to use up before it goes off, but I'm not hungry.
    My feet are cold.
    There's a woman on TV and I can't remember which programme she's from.
    A shoe site seems to have lost its UK site and all the prices are in dollars and it won't deliver to the UK.
    Another shoe site, with gorgeous shoes, won't let you buy anything without opening a b****y account, so sod that.
    Lots of bits of me ache.
    I've got to put the bins out and I don't want to move.
