I am so annoyed........

I was busy tidying up the ditch on Friday, but had to pick the garbage up first.  I know it's not Tim Hortons fault, it's their lazy customers fault, but I am so fed up of picking up empty coffee cups from oury property.  Those along with water bottles, juice boxes and beer bottles are thrown down on a daily basis.  I would dearly love to put a big sign up saying:

I DON'T THROW GARBAGE ON YOUR PROPERTY, SO PLEASE STOP THROWING IT ON OUR PROPERTY! 

As dh says that would only make matters worse, but even so.

Then when I went to watch Eastenders on BBC Canada at 12 noon, only to discover it wasn't on.  Would  you believe they have taken it off the air until September????

"EastEnders will return to Canadian television exactly where it left off in Sept. 2010 – please check your local listings at that time for more information."

What the heck, it's bad enough we are already over two years behind as it is, now we'll be even further behind??  I should send them an email.

I only watched the last three minutes of the England vs Algeria game and honestly it was three minutes too much.  I mean what on earth is wrong with them, the English Players?  They seem to be half asleep, or totally not into the game at all.  Unless they pull their socks up and knuckle down I don't think they will be going anywhere in the World Cup!!

Other than that though, things have been super busy again on Friday.  I was busy again in the garden edging and cutting grass.  Managed to get two big loads of laundry washed, dried and ironed, and some tidying up done.

We had an anniverary dinner at Swiss Chalet, nothing exciting, as we had a few errands to run in town, including doing some grocery shopping.  The rest of the weekend is going to be busy, but I am hoping to pop in to visit everyone's blogs at some point.

Enjoy your weekend,

Gill

I know the frustration you feel about people tossing things onto your property. We have the same problem at times, I just don't get "liter-bugs! ~Enjoy your weekend!!~

It does annoy me when people just throw rubbish! Especially into someone elses property! Snarl :/
I am glad that you enjoyed your anniversary though!
I watched that appalling football game, it was sooooo boring, I was losing the will to even sit up!

I'm glad you went out for your anniversary, my parents used to always go away for the weekend for theirs and leave us with our grandparents! They always went to the same inn, so much that they put their name on a plaque there along with all their other most frequent guests!

Ooh, I hate picking up what other people throw from their cars. Or just toss away as they walk past the house. I know it's not personal. Somehow that makes it worse.

I feel your annoyance at BBC...CBC is always bumping Coronation Street, too.
It just isn't the same watching them on the computer monitor.

Happy Anniversary from me too Gill.

I agree with you re the England football team but I do not watch football. I'm lucky that husband is happy to just watch the highlights (though they must have been few)and I just go on to bed. A x

A belated happy anniversary!
I understand your frustration with the trash....there is a pullout on the canyon road just past our cottage that people pull over to and then think they are going to party there, regardless of the time of day...or night! I want to yell, "Do I park in front of your house and play my bluegrass or classical music? I do not! So go park on your own street and see how long till your neighbor's hand you your head on a platter!!"
Since TrapperDude won't let me do that, he just takes a few shots at the "snake I just saw over in the pasture" and that usually runs them off!!
There are benefits to living in the country ;)

I sure know the feeling of picking up other people's trash...and also someone coming along and letting their dog leave their mess in your yard. Either one will send me on a rant...
