    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

    The DAB radio in my wife's car has decided that we can only listen to Radio 2 now, so until I can work out how to get Planet Rock (me) and Absolute 90s (wife) back we are stuck with it.

    Why oh why do I have school dreams when I've been retired for 11 years now?

    I was panicking last night, as I was out and about, then remembered that Mike Law, the English HMI, was coming to my A-level class that afternoon.

    Relieved to wake up.

    Any other retired people have work dreams?

    Yep. I wake up in a panic because I have parked my lorry and can't remember where it is. Searching everywhere, running around looking for it, what do I do now, how do I get home? More like a nightmare than a dream. When I open my eyes I think thank goodness, there is no lorry, I have been out of it for ten years.

    Me too, and they are never 'nice' dreams either.
    I'm usually lost somewhere, searching for colleagues or buildings. I wake up feeling exhausted and it takes me a while to realise that "I was only dreaming".

    Today's irritation is the number of people I hear ending sentences with "To be fair".

    It seems to be a fairly recent phenomenon.

    Doing better than the current works between J2 and J3 on the M6 to supposedly make it a "smart motorway" - they've been going on for almost a year now.

    I'll take your M6 J2-3 and raise you my M5 J1-2.

    Work originally started in June 2017 due for completion in autumn 2018, autumn 2019 may be optimistic based on the rate of progress so far. As an added bonus there are speed restriction and lane closures at the M5/M6 and M5/M42 junctions for absolutely no logical reason so even if you're getting off before the roadworks you still get massively delayed.
