101 personal hells!

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

Television, urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

Being too hot and not being able to take my socks off.

Having kids whining on at me for sugary marketed crappy food with brightly coloured plastic toys inside, instead of my gorgeous wee one asking me to pick blackberries with her and Daddy and telling us she thinks we're the luckiest family in the whole world >chokes back sobs!<

Never getting any time alone with Mr D'ville to have adult conversations.

Radio 4 being taken off the air.

having to live in a place without a garden, that would give me a very Margo-esque attack of the vapours :shock:

Finding this in my new house

Having 2 men coming into my house and turning my livingroom into this

And to save a bit of money, weilding a club hammer and a crow bar and turning my own dining room into this

And being charged £15k for the pleasure of it.
Welcome to my world :cry: :cry: :cry:

New housing developments with Truman show style mono-bloc roads!

People who can't get the fact that one may not want to always hold a valid passport.

Fake-old stuff, see first point regarding housing developments.

A world with only bad architecture, planning etc.

roll on 29th oct. I'm moving to a proper house, with proper bricks, and non-bouncy floors. where mosquitos from the pond below my livingroom window don't bite the f*** out of us every summer, where the neighbours arn't arsy snobs and where i dont worry that my bath will fall through the floor at any moment.
