Things that Wind Me Up

In an attempt to get more comfortable in front of the camera, I’m joining in with Vlog Stars, a challenge organised by Colette and Katy. Every month, the girls set a theme and the prompt for May is Things that Wind Me Up. I filmed my little bit this afternoon as I was about to pick up the children from school. I had less than 10 minutes so it was a tad rushed, but hey! As I was checking the footage, I realised I am rather expressive when I get animated! I did a few print screens and voilà my annoyed faces:

Things that Wind Me Up

Anyone who knows me is aware I’m passionate. OK, I might be a little feisty at times. I used to be particularly spirited, but I have calmed down a lot since having children. There are still quite a few things that wind me up. I might be offending a few people here, sorry!

What kinds of things wind you up?

    This has really made me laugh! Feisty is good Mel! I too am constantly confronting young people about swearing near my two little chaps or being loud in the park when the baba is sleeping (can you tell I’m sleep deprived and on edge). Hubby hates it when I do it but we both know who wears the trousers! What winds me up – have I told you about the amount of record players that have come through my front door recently…..????

      Ha ha, I meant to ask you about the record player situation last week and I forgot!!!

    You’ve made me smile today, thank you for that. I agree with you on so much. The one thing that really bugs me at the moment is when you see someone texting whilst driving, it’s so dangerous – literally drives me mad. xxx

      Now you’re getting me started again! I can’t stand those people you can see texting as they’re driving. They look just like school kids who are trying to cheat: they think no one can see what they’re up to, but it’s obvious they’re not focusing on the road… Dangerous driving at its finest…

      Haha, it was fun doing some screen shots and seeing my face contort into weird shapes!
