    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

    • Local council held a taxi company summit because of Uber and didn't invite anyone to represent residents/services users *
    * But this is Coventry City Council, have to save 100 million so change bin collection days and yet can still authorise every piece of spare land being built on by student accommodation providers.

    These days a lot of it is just flavoured with smoke chemicals, and isn't actually 'smoked' in the actual sense of the word.



    I've been irritated today by people on the road who think I'm in the wrong for obeying road signs.
    And people who beep at me because I'm not pulling out. Well, I'm not pulling out because there isn't a big enough gap in the busy traffic to pull out safely. Yes, it did take longer than usual, but I'm not going to cut someone up or risk a prang because there's a lot of traffic.
    Needless to say, when I was able to pull out, the beeper behind me pulled out and cut me up.

    Two things, the upstairs kids as usual who never seem to be in bed my 8pm despite their parents telling me months ago they go to bed 8am and no later and wake up at 8am no earlier, shame I heard crashing and banging just a few minutes ago and kids laughter in living room and 10.20pm last night!


    2nd I cooked my tea (well a ready meal) walked to close blinds in living room and it all tipped out, first on my glass cabinet and then all over my carpet.


    I do have a carpet shampoo machine but due to conctrete floors it makes things worse than before it started!

    With recent decorating I've been using water based "gloss". It's fine but it won't stand up to a lot of abuse (which is what it gets here!). So I thought on this room I'm doing I'd use oil based gloss instead. Bad idea. I forgot what a pain it is. Just went to 2nd coat what I did yesterday and it's not blummin dry

    The room itself is small, there's no heating on here as it's not cold enough to see your breath yet so the paint obviously will take ages to dry. I've left 2 fans on in there now, hopefully that will help.

    And I've run out of roller sleeves. And fine grade sandpaper. And cheese.

    And me fridge door is being annoying.

    I think that's it so far
