    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

    By the way, I have never cheated. Been cheated upon, got my satisfaction when she begged me to take her back. On your bike, literally, because I kept the car.......and the house. Couldn't be happier now, new long term partner and a big grin on my face.

    I'm irritated because I'm getting irritated by things I shouldn't be getting irritated about.

    My new washer-dryer is very impressive. It has a timer and it beeps. Unfortunately, it also has a rather odd definition of "cupboard dry"--hot, but sopping wet.


    I was totally going to get on with the last bit of unpacking/sorting today, but even paperwork and putting things in cupboards seems to be a bridge too far today. I put the laundry on and returned to bed. Will try again later.

    Speaking of beeps, I hate that my microwave beeps when I push the buttons to set the time, so 3 min 30 secs would be six beeps (3x 1 min button and 3x 10 sec button). It's both annoying and unnecessary. All I need is one beep to tell me it's finished cooking.

    I can understand that people like to have their headphones on when out jogging but to have the volume so loud that they can't hear a warning about a cyclist approaching them from the rear is just stupid.
    The said cyclist not only had headphones on as well but was looking at her phone while cycling along.

    The resulting near miss should have made me smile but I was busy trying to control my dog whose barking at the cyclist was the only thing that either of the 2 of them heard, if he had not barked there would have been a definite collision.
    Every man is innocent until proven broke.

    I put a few things away, but then I must have spent a full minute just sitting there with a knife and fork because I forgot to take my "food" out of the microwave.

    I think it would probably be best for everyone if I just build a blanket fort and re-emerge tomorrow, sort of like a turn-it-off-and-on-again tech fix.

    This weather's obviously causing issues--just heard my 4th or 5th siren of the day. I hate windy weather and I can't get get my head around calling a storm Callum--it makes it sound like it's going to get drunk and vomit on its mum's petunias. No-one's going to take a storm called Callum seriously.

    No, it drains into the waste pipe, it's just being a tw*t. It turns out the cure is to ignore the fancy sensor and just set it to dry for x minutes.


    ETA - I actually had a condenser dryer in the old place. It worked very well and I liked not having to mess about with the giant hose.

    I am not sure if I am irritated with myself for getting coffee and cake for a third day in a row

    I blame the fact the new office is much closer to many branches of Greggs and my new contactless credit card which means I get all this food free

    When I go to The Arms and read down the threads, I feel like I'm at the wrong end of a very strange interrogation.

    Had check up at dentist and what a surprise she wants me to see the hygienist. Why dont they save time and let the hygienist do check ups and i am sure if theres anything that warrants the dentists attention they can say so.
    They just love wasting my time.

    However well I clean, scrape and floss my teeth, the hygienist always manages to find something, so I save time by always booking both together.
