    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

    Despite having made my views clear on whose job it is to clean the loo, I am still the one doing the job.

    Have I raised grubby scum or do they think I've developed an intriguing gastric disorder? Not amused, here, but with a clean loo.

    Of the assorted American things that have migrated over here, Black Friday is one of the foremost I'd ship right back. My inbox has been swamped with offers from businesses I have traded with once in the last 5 years - I'd hoped GDPR would shorten the time spent binning emails!

    The hydraulic thingy they started with wasn't up to the job and they went in crooked ( we have backfilled land which has some of the biggest boulders Ive ever seen, how we are going to get rid of the ones dug out I don't know) so now they have some heavy duty machine out there and its THUMP, THUMP, THUMP every three seconds THUMP

    24 feet they have to go, would have been easier to have dug a basement

    Argos

    I was given a 25 voucher last christmas which I'm still stuck with. Every time I've bought something this year which I thought Argos might sell I've checked their site with the aim of using the voucher, without fail they're at least 20% more expensive than elsewhere for all the low value items I've looked at and at least 10 more expensive for high value ones. I'm amazed they're still in business.

    My parents are aging, my baby sister also but I have decades of her to go, whereas my parents have hopefully as much as an Argos voucher more.

    Guess who is demanding we make time to see her this weekend as we go to see the endangered species.

    Argh. Only your family can stomp on your corns quite like this.

    My OH decorated and unsentimentally painted over the children's heights that I had recorded on wall over a period of 8 years. Fcuker. I'm hoping that I can sand the paint off to reveal them again.
