    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 doctor not calling on me because she thought I was still in seeing the nurse, I waited an extra 20 minutes past my appointment time while she sat in her room with no patient

    Why does emptying my vacuum cleaner always make such a mess that I then need to vacuum up again?

    I don't know the answer; I was asking a question.
    To go with it though, why is a bagless vacuum cleaner dirtier than one that uses bags?
    A bag's simple enough; the ones for Henry for example have a nice tidy tab that stops dust escaping as you bin the bag but megabucks Dysons?
    It doesn't matter how careful you are, nothing short of disappearing outside (and preferably far away) will stop the airborne detritus from covering either you, your floor or both.

    I bought 3 roller sleeves yesterday, never thought anymore about it until this morning when I found these particular rollers only fit a specific handle which I didn't have. Crafty marketing ploy by B&Q

    However, I took it as a challenge and managed, with the aid of me Dremmel and a cable tie, to adapt an old handle and it works fine. So to you B&Q

    If I had one of these 25 years ago I would have decorated this house a damn sight more often that I have done.

    Calling a patient to arrange a follow-up appointment. This is an NHS hospital clinic, which obviously has more patients than appointments, just as I obviously have nothing better to do all day........

    I say "Thursday 26th at 11am?" And they immediately say "Can't do Thursdays"
    So I say "Ok, I've got Friday at 11.20"
    They say "What about Monday"
    I say "We don't have a clinic on Mondays, we're only here Tuesday to Friday"
    They say "What about the Monday after that?"
    I say (through gritted teeth) "Nope, nothing then either, it's Thursday or Friday or you'll have to wait for at least 3 weeks"
    So they then say "Ok, I'll take the Thursday one"
    I say (joyously) "Okey dokey, we'll see you at 11 on Thursday"
    And they then say "Have you got anything in the afternoon on Thursday? Or on a Saturday?


    That's when I hang up the phone and go and scream in the toilet
    "I may be many things but not being indiscreet isn't one of them"

    Had mackerel with mustard and dill sauce earlier. It had a whoopsie label so was cheap. Now I have the runs.

    Have you ever found anyone so preposterously snobby and pompous that you need to keep inventing new words to describe them I am starting to sound like Leonard Sachs introducing one of the acts on the Good Old Days when describing this person

    Wore a nice white t-shirt today and within an hour of putting it on I've managed to spill tea down myself. Does Tea stain? I hope not. It's a nice t-shirt.
