    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

    Given that it's the middle of October and I haven't seen any anywhere this year, I've reached the conclusion that Pumpkin Spice Baileys has been discontinued

    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).

    And I have a new irritation: people who use speakerphone when it's just them talking, as if their boring conversation is so important we should all listen to it.

    I don't in public, but I do at home, because my damaged wrists make it a bit painful to hold a phone to my ear for any length of time.

    He was standing outside. Maybe it's some kind of trend? Do they do it on reality TV so the cameras can hear the thrilling conversation about their wedding cake disaster or their vajazzle appointment or whatever? (Disclaimer: I don't want reality TV.) My mum told me she'd seen someone doing it the other day.

    Well, I had a look, and I can't say that 'happy to see me' was the first thought that I had!

    I just thought 'coat hooks'!

    And quite stumpy little coat hooks at that!

    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?

    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
