Amazon gets far too much of my money. =/

Yeah the weather reports have been warning of snow all week. It's cold but not snow cold.

Good morning all. How's everyone?

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 12:15 PM

I have a delivery coming as we speak!

It's bloody freezing on the ward
I had to get up at 4am and ask for an extra blanket

I was good until they remembered I was meant to be out of my room!
So I'm in the lounge now with Christmas music on. Kmn

How are you np?

nonperson 05-12-2020 12:41 PM

I also have a delivery coming and have got the Amazon page open at the moment!

It's nice and sunny out so I thought I might sit on the back door step and have breakfast but it was SO cold that I gave up before even sitting down. Boo...

Are you not allowed to sleep in your room??

I'm ok... Tired and a bit unfocused. Don't know what to do with myself... =/

one_step_closer 05-12-2020 12:50 PM

Morning/almost afternoon, everyone. It's so easy to get carried away with shopping online. I actually haven't done much recently though, I buy anything and everything when I'm in hospital.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 01:03 PM

Amazon ftw!

I can sleep in my room thankfully. Just not allowed in it during the day :plain:

Do you have any tasks to do np?
Which reminds me, I need to catch up with the latest taskmaster!

Afternoon lindsay!
It really is. I definitely do more online shopping when I'm in hospital

nonperson 05-12-2020 01:13 PM

Plenty of tasks to do... just no desire to do them. I haven't seen this week's Taskmaster yet either actually.

Afternoon Lindsay. =)

nonperson 05-12-2020 01:15 PM

OMG, have Steps reformed?! I've just seen an advert for a new(?) album. O.O

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 01:32 PM

Fair enough! I get that

I have no idea! I don't keep up with news in general

nonperson 05-12-2020 02:06 PM

Neither do I for the most part.

They look really old.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 02:35 PM

I can imagine! Its been how many years now?

I've just watched taskmaster
Was trying hard not to laugh in the lounge full of people!

tamobhuuta 05-12-2020 02:45 PM

Hi everybody.
I'm enjoying ticking off my Christmas present list.

not_so_insig 05-12-2020 02:59 PM

Yes Steps have reformed a few years ago. They had an arena tour and an album in 2017.

Is it me or have the phone scanners been active lately? Every day I have had 1 scam phone call on my phone.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 03:02 PM

I still haven't got my Christmas presents.
Jasmine wants a Switch so me and mum are going halves on it because they're expensive!

I don't get scam calls Dawn. Don't know why!

nonperson 05-12-2020 06:29 PM

Wow I'm three years behind the news then. =P

I'm fairly organised with Christmas this year so far. For the first time ever. o.o

I get a few scam calls from time to time. Had one this morning actually to my landline but I never answer if it's a number I don't know.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 08:15 PM

Someone stop me from ordering stuff online?!

nonperson 05-12-2020 08:40 PM

I would if I knew how!

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 08:42 PM


It always gets worse when I'm in hospital!

nonperson 05-12-2020 08:49 PM

Understandable! There's not much else to do =/

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 08:55 PM

My bank account is really suffering. And I had to pay my rent today too! (Not the fun kind of spending money)

nonperson 05-12-2020 08:59 PM

Erf, rent. Maybe try to add things to your wishlist instead? I do that a lot then look back and can't remember why I wanted to buy half of it.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 09:02 PM

That's a really good idea! I'll do that

nonperson 05-12-2020 09:07 PM

Good. =P

Bill Bailey just did an awesome argentine tango to Phantom of the Opera on Strictly. =o

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 09:13 PM

I keep meaning to watch phantom of the opera. It looks good

nonperson 05-12-2020 09:16 PM

I've never seen it or many musicals to be honest.

<--- Uncultured. =P

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 09:21 PM

Same tbh!
I'm not big on musicals.
I liked the greatest showman though

nonperson 05-12-2020 09:40 PM

Haven't seen that. Not sure how I feel about Hugh Jackman singing. Wolverine does not sing. =P

Literally cannot watch things like Oliver but I love Mary Poppins.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 09:47 PM

I watched greatest showman once right after watching one of the x men films. It was very confusing!

I love Mary Poppins too

nonperson 05-12-2020 09:48 PM

Omg I can imagine. o.o

It's like a childhood comfort film. =)

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 09:51 PM

He is very good in greatest showman though

Yeah it is :)
Have you seen the second one?

nonperson 05-12-2020 09:53 PM

Oh yeah I hear all the reviews are very good!

I think I've seen part of it... Not in any rush to watch it though. Have you seen it?

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 10:17 PM

I have seen it. It was pretty good
Not quite the first one though!

nonperson 05-12-2020 10:20 PM

I think I remember thinking that the new Michael Banks character wasn't very Michael Banks.

Cacoethes 05-12-2020 10:46 PM

He wasnít really

Iím off to bed now guys
Nighty night!

nonperson 05-12-2020 10:52 PM

G'night Beckie. Hope you sleep well.

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 11:25 AM

Good morning x

one_step_closer 06-12-2020 11:31 AM

Morning Tamo, morning everyone. How are you all today?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 11:42 AM

I'm ok thanks, just hoping today will be less anxious. How are you?

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 12:25 PM

Morning guys
I've only just woken up
Nurses let me sleep in!

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 12:34 PM

Did you sleep ok Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 12:35 PM

Eventually. Didn't get to sleep until 3am because the voices were bad.

Do you have much planned today tamo?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 12:45 PM

Not really. Gonna try to watch Mass later but my concentration is terrible (even watching TV is hard)

I'm glad you got some sleep. Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 12:55 PM

I get that

No. Just put some washing on

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 01:10 PM

That's an achievement :)

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 01:14 PM

Thanks :)
Just had lunch. There were no sandwiches so I had a roast dinner
What are you having for lunch?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 01:27 PM

No idea, probably toast.

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 02:40 PM

What do you usually have on toast?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 02:42 PM

Butter today but sometimes jam or peanut butter. Or both....

Cacoethes 06-12-2020 03:12 PM


yoyogirl 06-12-2020 04:08 PM

Yay Rory my nephew is over and I can’t wait to see himself it’s a little annoying with dog barking doesn’t have clue that there is baby in the family but it’s lovely to see my brother and partner.

tamobhuuta 06-12-2020 04:40 PM

Aw that's sweet but shame about the dog!
