DPD did the same to me yesterday!
They said it was signed for. Turned out someone in the road behind me signed for it.

If any of my neighbours had it, they have rang me by last night. Everyone knows everyone here.

OH put a chicken in the oven this evening...straight from the freezer. TAd as I grumbled to myself "how does one get to late thirties and not know that you can't just shove a chicken from the freezer into the oven". After a quick Google search I'm now TAd that I managed to get to my late thirties not knowing that you can.

TA I now have a craving for one of my all time favourite snacks. Two pieces of toasted brown bread with a layer of real butter, sliced banana and a layer of peanut butter

A relative told me that another relative was ill (not seriously) and that I should text him and asked if I had his number. I said I had his number but I didn't commit to texting him because we don't have a good relationship and my text might not be welcome.

Anyway, I was talking to the first relative today and she asked if I had texted and I said no, to which she replied that I really should and that he'd like to know I was thinking of him. I eventually relented and sent a token cliched text that I immediately regretted and now I'm annoyed (even angry) with the first person for pushing me.

Basically, being put under emotional pressure to do something you don't really want to do.

Went to order a lamp from a shop last night, picked up a few other bits in their january sale. Get to checkout and half of the order can only be collected, the other half can only be delivered. 'Fcuk sake' I think to myself, 'why can't it be one or the other? fine I'll go in and collect the ones that need to be collected'. Go to arrange collection at the local shop, DENIED. We can arrange click and collect from all our England, Scotland and Wales shops but not any Northern Ireland shops.
No reason given but I'm kinda assuming it's Brexit? I dunno though. Not sure what customs could be due on a jug and a kitchen roll holder. And to add insult to injury, the feckin lamp that I wanted to buy in the first place is one of things you have to collect so I can't even get it.

Next door are building an extension, the builders merchant lorry arrived at 5am this morning to drop off stuff. It was so loud I was tempted to report them to the local night time noise team. I'm fairly sure it's illegal to make noise like that before 7am.

Not to mention under current restrictions they probably aren't supposed to be there anyway. It's more annoying now because I'm back to working from home and normally get 7-10am in working before she wakes.

If a lorry woke me at 5am I don't think I'd be responsible for what I'd do!

People who stop in narrow entrances to fix their clothes or wait for someone else while blocking the way / or forcing people to squeeze past them. F*ck sake nearly a year and they still don't know or don't care about social distancing.
