The weather is awful, it's not even August and the nights are drawing in. My husband has an irritating cough and the cat has disappeared.

Hopefully the drops will unblock it by next week KatyK. For megabucks you can have a kind of vacuum extraction. I forget the proper name for the process. I had to have it done when my GP nurse was booked up and we were going on holiday.

A moaning thread, bliss. I don’t feel so alone now.

boheminan Thu 01-Aug-19 10:15:26

still no bloody eggs....

KatyK Thu 01-Aug-19 10:11:05

Oo good I can moan without guilt. I have a blocked ear. I can't have it syringed until I have been putting drops in for two weeks. It only started yesterday and I have something important to do next week and I can't hear properly. I need to be able to.

Can I moan about having a moaning thread?

Bellanonna Thu 01-Aug-19 09:59:47

Really making me laugh! I love the hourly pain bulletins
(familiar!) and the repeated step-by-step recipe prep (not familiar, unfortunately).

I have come down the road for a manicure/pedicure lovely...........unfortunately I am an hour early!!!!

Lona Thu 01-Aug-19 09:57:31

This thread has made me laugh and spill tea down my tshirt, so I'll have to put the washer on when I don't really want to and now I feel grumpy!

Love this thread grin

I am starting to regret the decision to have a party in the garden this weekend...stress level rising. Too much work, too much worry. Why oh why did I ever think it was a good idea.

Lessismore Thu 01-Aug-19 09:25:42

Some stunning moans here, the 10 biscuits, the non communicating receptionists, the scraggy petunias, the eggless chickens,the over involved vegetable chopping husband......I am particularly drawn towards the poster who mentioned Christmas.

Today, I am seeing a film I don't want to see, it's a small moan but it's still early.

Teetime Thu 01-Aug-19 09:16:07

My back is painful, I bit my tongue at breakfast and it really hurt, I'm fat again and fancying chocolate all the time and I hate golf!

Oh dear! sad Life gets tedious don't it!!

Moles have dug up my new flower bed, uprooting some of the plants.

Cat has been weeing against the head of my bed.

Forgot to post a birthday card on my morning walk so have to go out again with aching knees and ankles.

Yesterday was tempted by a pack of luxury biscuits in Tesco. I have eaten about 10 of them so far! 77 calories each. shock The rest might end up in the bin, but I hate waste.

ginny my ex SIL is also one of those. Still not coming up with child maintenance. It is the only way he now has of being controlling.

Bathsheba Thu 01-Aug-19 09:12:33

Well I have a huge moan this morning: it's 1st August.. We’re in the 8th month of another year and it’s all going far too fast 😱😩😭

fizzers Thu 01-Aug-19 09:10:59

My eye is itching , so I think am developing conjunctivitis

My hiatus hernia is playing up and I've not eaten anything

Due to the recent rain my garden is full of newly sprouted weeds and it's to wet to do anything about it.

I have to wait in all day today and possibly tomorrow for an Amazon delivery

that's all....

vena11 Thu 01-Aug-19 08:55:16

I have nothing to moan about yet but then day has just started , give it time.

ginny Thu 01-Aug-19 08:52:05

Ex Son in law is an absolute *!!**. Sadly he is slowly alienating DGS who now at 16 is able to see the sort of character his Father is. sad

Auntieflo Thu 01-Aug-19 08:43:54

This greeted me when I went to the loo this morning,

oh and I’ve got super glue on my fingers!

Katyj Thu 01-Aug-19 07:18:16

The plumber and electrician rang to say they can't come.Just had a new kitchen, but haven't got a sink, washer , oven or hob working yet, looks like takeaway again! Mums in rehabilitation with a broken hip throughly fed up and threatening to leave. And it's raining .Could go on forever, but I'll give someone else a chance.

TerryM Thu 01-Aug-19 07:01:45

My back is aching and my big toe hurts
*Love the thread

Bopeep14 Thu 01-Aug-19 06:51:27

Life is pretty rubbish at the moment.
Ill health for both me and my husband both seeing specialist it’s costing a small fortune in parking fees.
Have to start house hunting again ,one of our children’s relationship has broken down, so they are moving out. Sad.

absent Thu 01-Aug-19 06:45:01

Mr absent has been in great pain with arthritis in his shoulder since Tuesday evening – it is now Thursday evening here. He delivers hourly bulletins throughout the day, but not yet during the night. It is only a matter of time.

I spent nearly two hours yesterday trying (and eventually succeeding) to collect his prescription for the magic medication recommended by the rheumatologist for acute incidents. I do not drive so all the trekking forwards and backwards to the medical centre and pharmacy was on foot. One round trip would have done it if only there had been any communication between the two receptionists.

I have a tedious cold which means I sneeze twice every other minute and my voice sounds like Louis Armstrong. My nose is lit up well in advance of Christmas and every time I cough I sound as if I am shovelling coal.

aggie Thu 01-Aug-19 06:17:53

I can't sleep and I have no reason to get up early today , forgot to water the tomatoes yesterday but they aren't ripening anyway . Garden is parched , who said raised beds are a good idea , they dry out in a blink , we have no rain , just drying wind . I have to crochet to keep the bisuit barrel at bay ....sigh

Pantglas1 Thu 01-Aug-19 05:32:12

Oh gransal how funny! I’ve also got one who needs a gold star for anything culinary although he does other jobs unasked. I really shouldn’t moan......

SalsaQueen Thu 01-Aug-19 00:07:15

It's rained all day, the bastards who employ me have shut the day centre that I run (with no warning, nothing), due to lack of funds. At the age of 60, I'll soon need to find another job. I've put on 3lbs this week, and I've got a headache.
