"What irritates you Monday" is a meme thought up by Delores from The Feathered Nest.
Here, on a Monday, we get a chance to vent our little, or not so little, things that irritate us.
It doesn't have to be something on that particular Monday, it can be anything that irritates you any day of any week.
Today, I didn't have any irritations when I woke up, so thought I'd give this a miss, but as the day went on....
It began with the nagging strong ache in my hip and thigh. I've had it for weeks now, so I decided it was time to take some extra panadol, and maybe a couple of anti-inflammatories as well with breakfast.
It didn't help at all which didn't really surprise me, so by lunch time I got out the strong pain relief tablets that I get from the chemist and took a couple of those as well. Within an hour I was feeling nauseous from the chemical mix and didn't feel at all like going into town.
So why would I? Well....I was expecting an electrician today to replace my rangehood, but he rang and said he'd had an emergency call and could we reschedule? Of course, no problem, come on Thursday.
Which meant that the things I'd been planning to do in town on Thursday would now have to be done today, because the rest of the week is taken care of time-wise.
So me and my nauseous tummy hopped on a bus, which was too warm, headed into an office which was even warmer, then home again on another too warm bus....
So now I'm irritated. Cranky even. And still nauseous five hours later. Time for some ginger tea.
