Keeping calm with a cuppa.
All you can do when you are frustrated at lack of help from those who say they will help – read Typepad here. I know I asked for input re new blog last week and I am all gung-ho to get started on my new look site, but alas due to my own lack of technical ability I am completely reliant on typepads help and they are at present ignoring me.
I find myself in the land of techno trouble this week. What with Typepad and the blog giving me nail biting hassle, my mobile phone has decided that it shouldn't be left out and joined the party too. For the past week I am finding myself either not being able to reply at all when friends text me, or I text back okay but phone gets thoroughly overexcited and sends three or four texts all at once. The recipient is left thinking I'm a complete nutter – okay so that's not too unusual a circumstance for me, but it is driving me bats – look there I'm batty as well now, it's just getting worse!
Ten things that drive me batty;
Phone not working and the feeling that such a small inanimate object is getting the better of me and chuckling to itself as it messes with my texts.
Those automated phone calls that come through while you are cooking and covered in flour etc, all the hassle of rushing to phone and getting stuff all over it only to find there isn't even a human on the end of it, uuurgh!
Cats wanting in the moment you've let them out.
Realising you forgot to post a letter when you went into town for the express purpose of doing this.
Losing car keys, house keys, purse, mail – anything really that seems to sneak off and hide from you whenever you are in a hurry to leave the house.
Socks – why do they insist on partying in the washing machine and losing their partners before coming out after a wash – where do they go? Is there some mystery Sockland out there where all the single socks go, they just party there amongst themselves waiting for the other half to swing on through the vortex and join them in the footsome conga.
Keyboard skitters – yep you read it right, keyboard skitters when you type one thing and your fingers and keys just don't seem to connect and it all comes out w8jh o88 thinys a99 over the place, hmmm see what I mean?
Calories – why are all the nice things in life just chock full of evil calories. Why should chocolate be cursed with calorific content and bran flakes be sweetness and light.
Housework – mostly cat hair appearing like tumbling weed blowing accross the plains of my flooring, all the background of a western and not a cowboy in sight. Socks, yes the damn things appear on the floor too, constantly seeking out their elusive other half.
Cats now meowing at my feet wanting out again.
Yep then things to rant about this morning. Come on let's hear your top ten bug bears for today.
