Blog of the Week: When I’m tired…

Blog_of_the_week_badgeIt’s Blog of the Week time on Netmums and we couldn’t help but laugh at this post from Pass the Gin.

Here she shows us some of the little things that start to get on her nerves when she is tired. Look familiar? What would you add?


In every family there are niggles, little annoyances which may result in huffiness, in muttering under your breath, but from time to time, they get too much, and instead of just frustrating you, or even being endearing little flaws, they start to really piss you off.

Today is one of those days.  I’m tired.  Just when I think we’re making progress with The Chunky Monkey he does a four wake-up overnighter.  For nothing other than wanting “a big kiss big cuddle”.  But Mr Aimee isn’t home yet, he’s at the gym, and by the time he’s home I just want my pizza and bottle of wine he’s bringing, so I thought I’d share with you guys.  Oh, and I’m too tired to type so apologies for the lazy picture post.

Things That Piss Me Off When I’m Tired.


Pots on the counter when the dishwasher is ready to be loaded.

The word “MUMMAY”


Cling Film.

So, what about you, what makes you a bit “stabby” when you’re tired?

    “no words necessary” for that picture but I bet a whole heap of woman smiled and inwardly groaned at the picture!

  2. gemma richardson says:

    All of these really annoy me I totally see your frustration also to top it of for me is the bathroom bin I seem to be the only one who sees that it is full, and the toilet lid been left up arrgh these little things really niggle and so easy to do so why not do them lol

  3. Nehir Armstrong says:

    When In am tired and still trying to do something has to be done; the other people stepping around without doing anything and pretending they are doing more then I have done!

  4. Mentalmum says:

    Oh god, the plates left above an empty dishwasher drives me mental!! Also, the other day as I was leaving for work I handed DH a Bag for Life that was loose in the car – he looked at it like “er, and I do what with this?!” “Put it away in the cupboard!” I said. It was on the hall floor until this morning…….grrrrrrrrrrr!

  5. LOVE this! I did something similar a while back but blamed it all on my husband not being tired:

    WHY WHY WHY can’t he just open the pigging dishwasher door and put the cup IN it?!

  6. suzanne3childrenandit says:

    Oh cling film does it to me, every time, just as I’m making the sandwiches in the morning…..and I’m always tired at 7am!!! And of course people sleeping when they’ve had the full 8 hours grrrr!

  7. cazerina says:

    The misters socks scattered on the floor right next to the laundry bin, empty shampoo bottle by the bath rather than the bin. My DVDs now living all over the floor because my 17month old is busy ‘exploring bis enviroment! Oh and when Im pushing the pram and always manage to get stuck behind Sammy the snail but infront of Usain Bolt!

  8. “People who have had a good solid nights sleep being asleep.” I love this I often feel the same! 🙂

  9. Expat Mammy says:

    thanks for the recommendation

  10. Proper rofling on the cling film 🙂

    What annoys me? Part opened packets in the fridge when I don’t know when they were opened. “Sorry you were out” cards. I am unreasonably annoyed at having to fill up my car with fuel. Not due to the cash but the annoyance factor of it. I hate getting diesel-y hands and I hate the grumpy staff who take ages to authorise the transaction and the traffic. Urgh. (Even though I only fill up once every 3 weeks at the moment.)

  11. lisa-marie tagg says:

    what annoys me is when I have just tidied the living room and the oh and the kids come in and throw there stuff on the floor =S and when the oh has finished playing with his Xbox he puts the pad in the kids toy box with the wires hanging down then he will tell her off for touching it. I am always having a go at him for doing it. I hate it when it is the oh’s turn to have a lay in and I have to get up at 5am with the kids even though he got up the weekend before and let me have a lay in and when my lg gets up in the night my oh will go down stairs and make a bottle then give it to me and he will go back to sleep and leave me to feed her =(

  12. Un says:

    Can I just say the little hand dunking the biscuit is the cutest picture ever …….sorry not to the point at all . …

  13. Ellie says:

    Damp towels left screwed up all over the house then when he can’t find his he nicks mine!!! grrrrrrrrrrr!!

  14. This! A thousand times this! And dirty laundry on the floor when the basket is four steps away. Oh and stuff on the stairs that needs taking up but is invisible to anybody but me!

  15. sam says:

    How funny. I’d like to add:
    Half putting away kitchen items (remove them from the drainer and place them NEXT TO the cupboard they belong to!) Grrr.
    Asking everyone if they need to loo before I go, so I can ensure a peaceful slot to ‘ahh hmmm’ do my business…only to be interrupted by a dancing 4 year old who has suddenly decided that he needs a wee/poo and I have to get off! (Is this only me?)
    Being happy that the washing up is done, only to find the next time I cook, that the dirty grill pan/baking tray has been put back in the oven dirty!
    Great thread!

  16. Dee says:

    Emotional blackmail in bed making me feel guilty he has ‘needs’!
    Switching the channel RANDOMLY when watching something especially when something good is about to happen!
    Making comments about my driving, or just women drivers in general.
    Whining, whinging.. Enough said.
    About to drift off for nap when either phone rings or someone at the door!
    Inconsiderate drivers parking!
    Not being able to flush toilet after someone’s just used it.
    Shoes sprawled across floor and not put properly on one side.
    Walking behind someone slow who then suddenly stops!
    Trying to hide a yummy treat from prying eyes (and ears!)
    The neighbours dog constantly barking outside.

    There are hundreds more but i’ll get myself depressed just thinking about them!!
    Someone else have a go!…

    • The kids and the hubby taking clothes off and dropping them in a puddle on the floor (for the fairies to pick up?)
      The silent stand off in bed in the morning when you both pretend to be sound sleep and not to have heard the kids/dog crying for attention waiting to see who will crack first
      Putting milk back in the fridge when there is only a quarter of a piddly millimetre left
      Again …cling film…is it designed to make us swear as it refuses to unwind in one piece? All we want to do is wrap the sodding sarnies and get on with the morning
      Leaving all the cupboard doors open

      Oh sorry….could go on but shouldn’t

    I can relate to all things posted already.
    I did a four hour commute and an eight hour shift in between. Got home to find half dog hair had changed my beige carpet to black, dishwasher half full of both clean AND dirty items, remains of snack making (bread crumbs). All over the kitchen surface and no milk for even one cup of tea! I was so ticked that I grabbed the Hoover. Hubby comes in and asks ‘are you done yet’ lucky for him my rifle was out of range!!!!!!!!!

  18. marga says:

    My husband actually tells me off if I don’t “unglue” a new loo roll if the one on the holder is nearly finished. Seriously?
