Now I don't have to get out of bed any more.
Until you leave your phone in the front room.

I have a problem finding a good enough reason to get out of bed in the mornings. Well, eventually I do get out of bed, only because there`s no-one to bring me my coffee! I find this a very good reason to get out of bed.

If I make the bed, then I won`t be likely to return to it.

If I wash my face and brush my teeth, and my hair, and get dressed, then it`s almost guaranteed I`ll not return to bed.

But once I've drunk my coffee, I have a problem deciding whether or not to turn on my computer, or do something else.

My life is SO difficult, with all this control I have to exert daily.
I don't see the problem. Get up, make coffee, bring back to bed, switch on laptop, and your morning's just getting started. Repeat with a second coffee an hour later, only then start thinking about "getting up" properly.

I'm tired just reading that. I need a nap.


(P.S. Been there, done that. Sleep is a very good way to kill time until bedtime.)

We'll have him posting here soon: my wife gave me cold chicken breast for dinner, and on top of it cold fries which are absolutely disgusting!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

With this hot weather we're having I'm not sure if I want a beer in the garden, a beer on the balcony or a beer down by the lake, or all three, or maybe a grill with a beer.

You didn't mention the panda eyes you'll get from the 3d specs... So I assume it's not a 3D set. Looser.

I've reported this to a mod to move your post to the 2nd World Problem thread. HTH

Next up: a complaints thread that someone broke into your car and stole your tic tacs but left your handbag and the money in it.

It's too breezy to wear a t-shirt and too sunny and warm to wear a sweater. Thanks, Obama.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The sun is shining but I`m wearing a jersey and jeans and going outside means I have to change my clothes! And if I change my clothes, I can`t even work in the garden because I pulled out all the weeds yesterday, and the sun is too hot to lie on my deckchair. Life can be so frustrating.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

There is a huge carton box in the garden to put in the trash but I can't because the kids and the cat have too much fun with it. But they don't care about the play house...
