What is it that gets to you, the screams of passion, the humping, sorry missed the T of Thumping, or is Bunny watching not your thing, cos I must admit I like watching my Bunnys, and thinking about the Stews, Pies, and my favourite, Rabbit Casserole with prunes.
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.

This week I have mainly been annoyed by the eggy smelling water coming out of the tap in my caravan, suspect bacteria in the hosepipe, the rooks are now digging up my potatoes after I chopped off the haulms due to blight, so will have to cover them up again, my onions have been blasted by rain and wind, chomped by the bloody rooks and now they have got sooty mould, oh yeah and my sweetcorn in the polytunnel has turned into some kind of mutant with multiple stems and heads, will have to post a picture, I didn't genetically alter them honest.

Idiots who can't be bothered to walk an extra 10 feet to use the zebra crossing where drivers are looking out for them, preferring to save their energy and cross behind a stationary bus where half the drivers can't see them and aren't expecting them.

People who don't wait for the green man to come on before crossing the road when there are parents with young children trying to teach them how to cross the road safely.

People who jump the barrier to cross the railway lines.

England's inability to take any kind of control of this test match.

Drivers who drive right up behind you with no regard for stopping distances of any kind.

Berry,I hate being sick too!Luckily I'm usually quite healthy,but I do make a lousy patient!lol Do you smoke?Reason I ask because I used to smoke,and gave up 10 years ago.I loved smoking,but.....it made me ill all the time.Chest infections,coughs and so on,and I only smoked 20 cigs per week!!!Weak chests run in our family,and after being ill on a regular basis,I decided to give up.Best thing I ever did!

Election campaigns....nasty business and seem to last a lifetime.

People in apartment blocks who decide to get drumkits - and that 8am is a good time to practice at the weekend. At 10am they then have their friends come round with electric guitars, which they amp and turn the volume up on.

They then decide to 'practice' the same 3 songs for the next 7 hours...

That really annoys me today!

Gas companies who think I'm a liar.
Units used for last 2 months.... used 3 units last month and 2 the month before that.. They have tried to increase my D/D twice in the last 3 weeks for 'winter', would add I am approx £95.00 in credit!
Have told them twice in the last 2 weeks I have another heat supply (woodburner) and today they send someone to read the meter.
