    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

    Socks for the feet, IMDb for the unknown actress, bath/heatpad/paracetamol for your poor creaking body...and I can't help with the rest.

    What was the weird word? I had to look up how to spell column and piled earlier because my brain wouldn't co-operate.

    Actress...... don't know her surname.

    Can't have a bath because my damaged wrists aren't able to push down on the sides when I want to get out, so I'd have to stay in it for ever.

    Word....... it was just strange....a strange construction of a normal word.


    However, I have just taken some paracetamol.

    Plus, at some stage I will have to get up to go to the loo, so I'll put the bins out then.
    As for the shoes....... I shouldn't really be buying any anyway. Even really beooooooooooootiful ones. Plus, whenever I buy anything from the States, something always goes wrong, so I have escaped that hassle, I suppose.

    When I can't remember someone's name, I look up the programme on IMDb and look at the folk's photos. Pretty much everything I watch there's a moment of, "Oh, it's that guy...what do I know him from?"

    It wasn't me that did the strange thing to the word, was it? I have a tendency to forget how words are supposed to work and accidentally abuse the English language. It usually makes sense in my head, but not in other people's ears.

    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.

    ..............

    Right! Time to put those bins out, then back to bed for the duration.

    The loud neighbour has just started hammering again. He's been in all day, but he waits till the evening to start being noisy. Hoping it's not going to go on till after midnight again, else I'm going to have to start tutting and/or seething again.


    I'm strangely annoyed that the prickly neighbour--who kept pestering my contractors on the odd weekends they were doing work on the flat--hasn't said anything to this new guy about the late night banging, the door slamming or the loud hallway conversations. Not sure why I deserve special attention.

    Maybe he doesn't think you'd thump him?

    My contractors were all blokes, though, and at least one of them quite intimidating-looking (he's actually lovely). I look a bit intimidating (buzzcut, bit butch).


    My best guesses are a) he doesn't like a woman living here (I'm the only one, so it's the only obvious difference) or b) he had some kind of problem with the bloke who used to live in my flat (I heard a rumour that he caused some sort of problems) and decided to sort me out before I became a problem.

    Just get on with it Watts

    On the plus side a neighbour has just rang to ask are we having any problems with the plumbing, we have for over a week but I did not think it was worth getting anyone in as they were not that bad, anyway they have contacted the water board so hopefully that will get sorted soon

    Probably explains why I have a problem with filing home related paperwork.
    It goes in a pile, not a file ....

    Also irritated that I've had a bad start to the week as per my number three threads and although I have now had three coffees, my appetite has gone.

    What the hell - another coffee or two is unlikely to kill me .... aaaarrrrgggghh!

    Many things.
    The clock in the doctor's surgery is still wrong. I have so far resisted the urge to take it off the wall and change the time myself. Also, touching that germ infested self check in screen, yet they provide no hand sanatizer unit.

    Young chavvy men who walk around with one hand permanently down inside the front of their jogging bottoms/pants. Dirty !!!!!!s.

    But most annoying was yesterday my son and I we're almost killed by some idiotic tart who drove through the pedestrian crossing at 60mph even though there was a "green man" Grrrr, angry face!

    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.

    Actually a flatpack viking longship might mean you could send the rubbish downriver & let someone else deal with it? A sort of elegant flytipping? (Anyone got a weblink to this flatpack anyway? I may have a corpse to burn in one shortly.)
