    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

    I get NHS dental treatment, but have to pay. A few weeks ago when I had a check up (£21-60), the dentist cleaned them at the same time.

    I love the fact that my washing machine beeps to tell me it's finished.

    Wouldn't it be great if you could reboot a brain by turning it off and on again?

    oh, hang on.......that's called 'sleep', isn't it?

    To be fair, after a very very slow and dozy morning, I got a shocking amount done. Everything's unpacked and I've only got a few bits left to find a home for.

    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.

    I was hoping the weather would have finished its tantrum by today, but it's still kicking everything about.


    I bought some over-door hooks. They don't fit properly (my own fault for not measuring). They also look like they're very happy to see me and it's a little intimidating (I'm a lesbian, we don't usually have to deal with that sort of behaviour).

    I'm pretty certain that I posted at approximately 4am this morning on a totally harmless thread about what the last text you sent was. Did I dream it?

    I've just realised I need one more item of furniture. It's going to take over a week to get here, though, so I can't be officially finished until then.

    I posted there too, but at about 0800. May I assume that it's gone then?

    Edit - Indeed has gone. There was also one that was about the Last Text That You Received which has disappeared too. The poster who started the threads is still here.

    Bolster pillow: great for when your back/hips are playing up, but an utter PITA to store away. I'm scared to vacuum bag it in case it doesn't refluff. Haven't squished my duvet for the same reason, even though I only use it for a couple of months a year.


    ETA - I have given in and ordered the vacuum bags. So now my irritation is that I seem to be haemorrhaging cash at the moment.

    Don't panic this is not one of my silly jokes! This actually happened 3 hours ago..

    Me) "Doctor Doctor I've come for my Flu Jab!"

    Doctor) "Is there any particular reason why you want a Flu Jab?"

    Me) "Yes, I don't want to catch Measles this Winter"

    Of course I didn't answer his question in this way as he didn't seem the sort of chap who would respond favourably to witty sarcasm.

    However I find it irritating that he put me in a position where I had to censor all my natural instincts and come up with a credible response. I finally settled on.."Uh well er..I have it every year"

    That's all Folks!

    I'm awful for panicking and giving inappropriate answers. I probably would have told him I have a needle fetish or I heard they were in fashion this season or something.
