    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

    Irritated by yet another dog related injury, she dropped a massive log on my bad foot yesterday and it's very sore this morning

    People sending me stuff with Royal Mail signed for. Particularly when they have timed despatch so the postie tries to deliver it on a Friday. They won't let me reschedule for Saturday (today) so I have to reschedule for next Saturday instead. I'm having to wait two weeks to get something I bought last weekend.

    It's surprising how often this happens.

    I have been trying all day, on and off, since i got up to get the central heating to work.

    No joy.


    No hot water either.


    At least i have a couple of electric heaters to take the chill off.

    I have 5 DVDs added to my shopping basket on Amazon, Amazon locker is full - fair enough.

    However bit of testing, added Amazon Echo - locker is free for this but not the DVDs.

    Removed Echo and added firestick - locker is free for this but not the DVDs.

    EDIT: Further investigation, to be eligible:

    All items in your order must be available for dispatch within 24 hours. Although an item may be listed as "In Stock", we may not be able to dispatch that item right away. For items that can dispatch within 24 hours, the product detail page will show a message similar to "Want this item by tomorrow? Order in the next 30 minutes".
    The firestick as above had the message:
    Want it delivered by Wednesday, 28 Nov.? Choose One-Day Delivery at checkout.
    Added a random DVD that had the message:
    Want it delivered by Monday, 26 Nov.? Order within 1 hr 2 mins and choose One-Day Delivery at checkout.
    This was available to deliver to an amazon locker.

    Looking the ones I wanted in my basket that said full - none had the above messages Very annoying, but in order to fit through the letterbox and not delivered to a random neighbour (purpose of the locker). I will now order them separately - email that one is dispatched, I will order another and so on.

    I woke up a few more times than usual last night. The weirdest one was when I was trying to suppress laughter in my dream, then I did one of those laugh-snorts and woke up halfway through. I'm now concerned that I was laughing out loud in my sleep at 2am and the neighbours might think I'm even madder.

    Don't like Saturdays (nothing much to do for me).

    Worse was years ago when I was briefly in the Inner Hebrides when everything 'stopped' on Sunday as well unless you went to church or for a gentle stroll! No shops, no ferry, no pub, no nothing. So a two day enforced and silent break every week.

    I spent a bit of time working in Germany. You couldn't do anything noisy on a Sunday.

    The fact that the excellent live Channel Four F1 coverage ends today and from next season the only live coverage will be on Sky TV with money winning out again, the only live race on free TV will be the British Grand Prix, I believe Channel Four get some sort of highlights package, always preferred C4 coverage to the much more serious Sky coverage.

    <staggers in from Long Drive> y'know a silent Sunday sounds like bliss?!

    Have met additional family &, to my considerable ire, heaps of family documentation have emerged that I have never seen. Seems that some trees are only shown to Family rather than family.

    Ruddy cats

    I have metal gates into my garden, the kind that are made from bars. I had covered the bottom half of both with chicken wire to discourage cats but during the late summer I cut small holes in the bottoms of both so the hedgehogs could get in and out of the garden.

    And now bloody cats are getting in and scoffing all the very expensive hog food so I've just had to go out and block the holes up again.

    Hopefully most of the hogs are hibernating by now so they won't need access in and out.

    Slug.
    Very big slug.
    In my sink.

    On reflection I'm less irritated and more completely freaked out.

    My chair broke

    It has sunk to the bottom and won't rise up so I either sit too low at my puter or I use cushions to raise my position up but I can't get comfortable on them
