I know we're lucky to live in a developed country so please don't attack me or anyone else for posting on this thread but sometimes things happen that can still be annoying.

So what daft first world problems wind you up?

The water coming into the toilet cistern is very cold atm but the air in the bathroom is warm so condensation forms on the cistern then drips onto the floor making puddles.

The spin cycle on my washing machine makes it hard for me to listen to From Our Own Correspondent on the kitchen radio!

Ha ha MawBe, you've made me laugh out loud!!

The induction hob beeps irritatingly if you replace a saucepan on it after draining the contents.

Oh MawBe, I am with you on that one!

Min is similar, Mawbe. I can't hear my Spotify music from the Sonos system in the kitchen because the tumble dryer is making such a racket! grin

Not liking what I am served for dinner.

Not having a good strong wifi signal to mess about on the internet with.

I’ve lost a ring, from my right hand, in the house, this morning. It’s a bit loose and my hands are a bit cold, we’ve turned the house upside down, can’t bloody find it!

have you stripped a bed? could it be in the seal or filter of the washing machine?

have you checked in the shower plug thing? and bath plughole/sinks/

My local Waitrose have sold out of Nduja paste.

In the guest bathroom(s) as well as the en-suite.

I’ve run out of bird food and I can’t risk a shop. Poor things keep looking for me sitting on the garage roof looking at me in the kitchen. 👀🦅🦜 even the Parakeets are out there making a helluva racket.

Waitrose don't deliver Ricard.

Missfoodlove Sat 23-Jan-21 12:02:22

metlotgran I heard she had featured it on her cookery show.
I’ve been buying it for a few years and never had an issue!
Bloody Nigella.

Have you been in the freezer and checked?? I lost a ring and found it at the bottom of mine. It must have slipped off when I went to fetch something and then made it's way to the bottom basket over the next few weeks. One day I opened the door to the freezer and there it was glinting at me. smile

You have quite ruined my dy Grumppa 😢😢😢

Jaxjacky Sat 23-Jan-21 12:12:02

Relief, husband just gone to make a fry up, noticed I’d cleaned the hob, ring was in the little sink tidy thing for sponge etc.....phew, note to self, don’t do cleaning!
Thank you for your ideas, bathroom, bed and bin were checked...chair and sofa moved. I am so relieved, it’s called a keeper ring, my husband bought it for my 60th as apparently I’m a keeper 😍 so great sentimental value.

JaneJudge Sat 23-Jan-21 12:13:32

I'm so pleased it is has been found smile

annodomini Sat 23-Jan-21 12:24:59

I had to Google Ricard. Does that make me an oik?

boheminan Sat 23-Jan-21 12:30:36

Bed changing day, so a 10 minute fight with the duvet to put on clean cover. Never starts Saturdays off wellsad

Apparently this week she featured a recipe for Bitter Orange tart ?! Was it on Wednesday ?

DH came into my dressing room when I was doing my make up to touch up the paintwork (the walls not me) bloody irritating - cant get a moments peace. I did give myself a bit of a telling off!!
