A lot of things are annoying me at the moment. Like when it rains all week and because I work outside, and on the sea, I’m stuck inside. I step outside my door., and somebody has let their dog stop there so I either have to deal with the dog (usually out of control) or what it has left behind, if not that, get run over by an incompetent cyclist who is too scared to ride on the road, and is careering all over the pavement. Trying to avoid neighbours, we’re getting new ones again (what are they going to be like? The last lot were OK but their friends were not). Going out for dinner with another couple, and the guys can chat about anything but as soon as I as much as open my mouth, the other woman starts to paw all over her partner (I should have said ‘are you guys OK?’ but I was too polite). I was left going through the contents of my bag for something to do. Shopping, now don’t get me started, we used to have a great local charity shop that used to turn up lots of interesting collectables but now all their volunteers have been replaced by dealers who snaffle everything, I was buying toys to fix up and sell on our fund raising stall, not a chance anymore, just like with the local car boot sale, gangs of guys are turning up with a van and buying whole bootfulls before the public get a look in. Trying to canvass for an arts project only to be met with ‘Sorry, we’re just here to raise our kids’. whooooo It’s all hard work.
