Grumble, Grumble, Aaaaah!

I'm not really a very grumbly person but in day to day life I do come across things that nark me a bit.  So, following on from my notebook post a few days ago (here), I decided to make myself  a 'Grumble' notebook

...using magazine cuttings for the cover.  

This is the inside cover:
Good, eh?

Even the notebook I used to make this 'grumble' book gave me reason to complain:

See this front cover?:
I opened it up:
...and found that all the pages had been put in the wrong way up!

Which meant that I had to cover the back cover instead!

Just one of life's little irritations (products designed or made badly) that I want to make note of in this little book of mine. I'm hoping by putting them in here I'm doing a form of getting them off my chest. Well, that's the theory anyway.  

I did decide after making this that it put me in a negative frame of mind and all day I kept finding things I could put in it.  Think I'd better start making my 'Happy' notebook pretty sharpish! 

Have a great weekend. 
Thanks for looking and for any comments,

I like the idea of your grumble notebook but actualy think for me it wold be counter productive as I would find loads to put in it!!! I think I am better of trying to think of a positive thig each day or to try and fill a happy book. Your images are excellent xxx

OMG! I'd have it full in a flash - I think I'm the original 'grumpy old woman'. I think the books are a brilliant idea but for my sanity's sake think I'll start with a 'Happy' one. xx

Hiya Nicky thanks a huge bunch for taking time out to reply to my question about B&W pics. DD is a fan of Picnik so will have to get her to explain it to me (or just try myself may be easier!) xxx

I think I'd need one the size of an encyclopedia LOL. It's a great idea but only if you do get it off your chest. Jaqui x
