I'm going on holiday with my family.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 01:48 PM

That's good though right Hazel?

Yay tamo! Hope you have a marvellous time!

nonperson 21-05-2021 06:47 PM

Evening all. It's finally the weekend!

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 06:51 PM

It is indeed!
I'm just catching up with taskmaster
What you up to?

nonperson 21-05-2021 06:57 PM

I'm woefully behind with Taskmaster... Haven't watched any of the latest series.

I'm currently just watching TV with the cat on my lap.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 07:02 PM

Oh nooo! You must watch!


nonperson 21-05-2021 07:10 PM

I find it hard to be in the mood for it... which sucks because it might help with that mood!

He's moved so now I have no excuse not to go and get changed.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 07:11 PM

I know what you mean

Gooo and get changed! :p

yes and no... yes as now the job centre can shush for a bit, it will help financially, and I can focus on my PIP claim and getting treatment and stuff sorted

but... my brain has decided that them basically saying I am to ill to even look for work means I'm "broken"

I am aware this is maybe a slightly dramatic reaction, but it is what it is... I think it's just a shock as I never expected them to believe me :laugh: or at the very least I expected them to make it into a bit of a fight

shadow-light 21-05-2021 07:29 PM

I also enjoy taskmaster :D this series has been particularly good too

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 07:33 PM

I know the feeling
I've been on benefits forever and I hate being ill and not being able to work!

It has indeed!
I love Mike Wozniak

shadow-light 21-05-2021 07:36 PM

ye, I keep forcing myself ito work and it never lasts... I think I need to accept that I need to just not work for a bit and get my head sorted

Mike Wozniak is NOTHING like I expected him to be :laugh:

I also enjoy Jamail (I'm 99% sure i've misspelt his name) and his reactions to Alex

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 07:43 PM

Sounds like a good plan

I know! He's definitely my favourite

Jamali is hilarious!

shadow-light 21-05-2021 07:46 PM

you ever seen Man Down? It was written by and stars Greg Davis, and Mike Wozniak is in it. I am honestly starting to think his chaacter in that was loosely based on the real Mike :laugh:

nonperson 21-05-2021 07:51 PM

Oh you guys have reminded me that I have watched some of this series after all, but only the first episode!

I'm also changed and the oven is on for dinner.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 07:58 PM

No I've never seen that Hazel
Might have to give it a go!

I hope you manage to catch up soon np!

Yay well done!

nonperson 21-05-2021 08:14 PM

I'm sure I'll catch up eventually. Might have to do a series binge watch.

shadow-light 21-05-2021 08:27 PM

i still need to get round to watching task master series 1, 2 and 3 at some point

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 08:37 PM

Let us know when you do np so we can discuss it!!!

Yes you do Hazel!

nonperson 21-05-2021 09:22 PM

I think it gets good from series 4... but then again series 1 did give the world Tree Wizard ;-)

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 10:29 PM

I LOVED tree wizard!

nonperson 22-05-2021 12:29 AM

I know, that's why I said it ;-)

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 03:20 AM

Awww you remembered!

Tree wizard tree wizard! Oh my god it's anothe balloon!!

Pomegranate 22-05-2021 04:08 AM

New task master cast was released as well!

nonperson 22-05-2021 10:11 AM

Oh I really am so far behind then!

How's everyone this morning?

shadow-light 22-05-2021 10:38 AM

I have literally zero idea who 2 of them are :laugh:

tamobhuuta 22-05-2021 11:27 AM

Hi guys! I'm on holiday and when I got up to go to the loo I got lost in my bedroom, didn't know right from left.

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 11:54 AM

Morning everyone!

shadow-light 22-05-2021 12:03 PM

anyone up to much today?

usually I am busy on a weekend - becaus the boyfriend is off work and so I can actually leave the damn house as not on my own, but today he's at work till midday so... ye...

feels like so long since anyone has said "I am on holiday"!

got much planned or more just a different scenery/seeing people type thig?

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 12:04 PM

Nope! Apart from waiting for deliveries.
I've had one. Two to go!
I got some very pretty new Converse!

Will you get to do stuff when he gets home?

shadow-light 22-05-2021 12:07 PM

maybe... we probably have to go visit his parents as we havn;t seen them for 2 weeks... I hate visitiing his parents, I feel nasty saying that but it's true. At least it's not this house though as so sick of this house

the deliveries anything fun? Also... I thought you weren't meant to be spending more money :P

tamobhuuta 22-05-2021 12:26 PM

I'll just be relaxing . But we are going to the pub for dinner later.

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 12:30 PM

Well, it'll be a change of scenery if nothing else

I got some new Converse and some new dresses and Harry Potter pajamas and fluffy socks!.
No I am not meant to be spending money...:p
The consultant said I need to sit down with staff and look at my finances :ermm:
I am WAY to scared to do that!!.

That'll be nice tamo :)

nonperson 22-05-2021 01:18 PM

Harry Potter pyjamas are surely a necessary purchase!

However, finances are important so best to get it under control sooner than later I think. You've got some nice treats for now so maybe uninstall the apps from your phone/tablet temporarily?

/nagging =P

Relaxing on holiday definitely sounds nice and the pub dinner too, Tamo!

I never used to like visiting the bf's parents either, Hazel =/

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 01:28 PM

Hell yes!!

That's probably a good idea np!

Are you up to much today?

nonperson 22-05-2021 01:32 PM

It is a really good idea ;-)

Nah. Went for a nice walk with my friend and her kiddos (got to hold a very cute little person's hand for a while) and I really should be weeding the garden but think today is not the day (excuses excuses :wow:)... and food shop later of course.

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 01:42 PM

Haha! :p

Aww that sounds nice.
It's far too cold to be out in the garden!
Oh no! The dreaded food shop!

nonperson 22-05-2021 01:50 PM

Yeah, very cold and wet. If I procrastinate for a bit longer it'll actually start raining and make the decision for me. What's one more day of ignoring the weeds... It is getting so bad though, I have a month-ish until the annual garden "competition"/inspection and it's looking worse than ever and my motivation is lower than ever... =/

And yeah, dreaded food shop. Might try to go a bit earlier this evening though.

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 02:25 PM

Ah, I've fallen into the 'what's one more day' trap before!
Motivation is tough to find though

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully it won't be too busy!

nonperson 22-05-2021 02:44 PM

I get caught by that trap all the time, never seem to learn.

It was alright last week when I went earlier in the evening.

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 02:46 PM


That's good

shadow-light 22-05-2021 03:49 PM

Within 10 seconds of arriving at the bf's parents house we were being moaned at :wow:

shadow-light 22-05-2021 03:52 PM

I used to do food shopping at around 3am as the shops were empty :laugh:

I find about 3-4 PM isnt too bad, and around 7 isnt too bad either

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 04:20 PM

Oh dear Hazel!

I can't remember the last time I did a food shop. Even when I was at home!

nonperson 22-05-2021 04:30 PM

Aw, you'll be back at Asda soon, Beckie.

Yeah, 7ish is what I'm aiming for today. Usually I go at 9pm when it's extra quiet.

Anyhoo, I'm just having lunch because I've spent the last two hours "fixing" the oven. It packed up while trying to cook some nuggets for lunch... blew a bank of trip switches so I pulled it all out and cleaned up the 8 years worth of dust and grease and food residue and onion that had slipped down the sides and dog food from underneath and a receipt and a 10p coin! So gross. Took apart the plug in case the fuse had gone in there because it wasn't even turning on when I reset the trip switches...

...turns out I didn't actually turn the individual trip for the oven back on... so it would have been a 30 second job instead if I'd just looked properly... but at least it's all clean now.

nonperson 22-05-2021 04:48 PM

Ok so the oven is not fixed... it is not heating up. Guess that's why it tripped out. >.<

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 04:54 PM

Oh noooo!!
What a disaster!

nonperson 22-05-2021 05:06 PM

And also stupid me threw out the defrosted nuggets which I still could have cooked had I remembered the top oven/grill that still works!

I'm clearly on a roll of dumbness this afternoon >.<

Cacoethes 22-05-2021 05:07 PM

Eeep! Not good!
