How frustrating. I would be annoyed too. i'm sorry that you haven't got your parcel today. Hopefully you will be able to go with your Mum and get it.

not_so_insig 29-11-2018 10:37 PM

Yeah trouble is that I have no idea whereabouts it is otherwise I would have gone on the bus. I am anxious to get it because it's a second hand item so it's not like I can get another. I am annoyed about the eBay seller not responding too.

Aubergine 29-11-2018 10:43 PM

Are you able to talk to eBay about the seller not responding? Hopefully the person will get the voicemail and phone you back, so you can get the address and pick the parcel up.

Eska 30-11-2018 12:49 PM

A patient's wife just brought in a box of chocolates for me, just because I rearranged an appointment for her husband!

not_so_insig 30-11-2018 01:21 PM

The man who had my parcel came with it. Now to contact the seller and say that they should complain about ups as they delivered my parcel to an address 2 miles away! If it wasn't for the fact that my phone number was on it I would have never had it.

I'm glad you are appreciated Eska!

I'm glad you finally got the parcel Dawn.

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 04:36 PM

Hey guys

Eska 30-11-2018 04:42 PM

Aw thank you Lindsay!

Hi Beckie. How's life?

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 04:44 PM

Could be worse!

How about you?

Eska 30-11-2018 05:12 PM

I'm ok. Not awesome but not bad either.

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 05:50 PM

Not bad is good!

Up to much?

nonperson 30-11-2018 06:31 PM

Evening all.

(I said that yesterday too and then prompty fell asleep...)

Buttons. 30-11-2018 06:42 PM

Evening all :) Hope everybody is well.

I'm chuffed that the hairdye actually took properly today so I now have blue hair again :)

nonperson 30-11-2018 06:49 PM

Hello Buttons! Feel like I haven't seen you for ages.

What sort of blue is it?

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 06:54 PM

Saw on fb buttons, your hair looks awesome!

Hello np!

I'm putting my tree up
Its my first big tree since living alone for 5 years!
Always only had mini ones but fancied a big one this year

nonperson 30-11-2018 07:00 PM

Hey Beckie.

Have you got enough decorations for your tree if you've upgraded the size?!

Buttons. 30-11-2018 07:04 PM

Hi Np :) it's...lighter blue going darker down my hair, hard to describe. How's you?

Thanks Beckie, same question as Np.

Buttons. 30-11-2018 07:05 PM

Also why, for the love of beans, has an icecream van come down my street tune and all at 6pm at the end of November? 0.o

nonperson 30-11-2018 07:06 PM

That is rather odd, Buttons. Maybe it's singing for your amazing hair. =P

I'm alright, I suppose. You?

one_step_closer 30-11-2018 07:08 PM

Hello all evening visitors.

Blue hair is cool, and it sounds extra cool with varying shades.

Enjoy your big tree Beckie. :)

Ice cream vans aren't really about ice cream any more.

nonperson 30-11-2018 07:10 PM

Hi Lindsay. =)

What are icecream vans about now? I haven't been to one for years...

chinahorse 30-11-2018 07:11 PM

Evening all :)

Buttons. 30-11-2018 07:11 PM

That is one of the most cynical things I think I've ever seen you say.

one_step_closer 30-11-2018 07:13 PM

I'm not understanding, Buttons???

Don't ice cream vans now sell things like cigarettes and stuff?

Hi Lillie, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 07:15 PM

I have quite a lot of baubles!
I have a box of random decorations that I must have bought at some point.
And some lights I forgot I had.
The perils of impulse purchasing!
So I do have enough decorations

Ice cream van is random

chinahorse 30-11-2018 07:16 PM

Ooooo christmas decorations are such a good impulse buy though beckie.

one_step_closer 30-11-2018 07:16 PM

Do you have a star/angel for the top of the tree?

Buttons. 30-11-2018 07:22 PM

I'd never heard of them doing that! You learn something new every day!

Beckie I have very few words for you-Harry Potter decorations.

nonperson 30-11-2018 07:32 PM

I saw an awesome picture of Harry Potter Christmas trees recently but I can't remember where I saw it now...

It was in someone's living room... four trees decorated for each house and there were banners and everything. =o

chinahorse 30-11-2018 07:40 PM

I've seen a Christmas sorting hat type tree on fb

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 07:42 PM

I do not have a star or angel yet!

Harry Potter decorations would be awesome
I have some pokemon themed ones somewhere that I painted a few years ago

I saw that too np!

Aubergine 30-11-2018 08:12 PM

Hiya. :)

nonperson 30-11-2018 08:13 PM

Random HP question: Is Grindelwald meant to be pronounced with a V or a W? I keep hearing it both ways and don't know which is correct.

nonperson 30-11-2018 08:13 PM

Hullo ninja-posting Aubergine. =)

Aubergine 30-11-2018 08:24 PM

Hey Person. How's it going?

nonperson 30-11-2018 08:26 PM

It's going ok... trying to stay awake so I don't burn my dinner in the oven.

How're you?

Aubergine 30-11-2018 08:38 PM

Oh! I hope you manage to keep your eyes open. :)

I'm OK thanks. Got a non-electirc bike to train on today. Second hand, but she only got it just before the summer and was too lazy to use it. Haha! I looked online and it's ~200 new and she charged me 60. :D

chinahorse 30-11-2018 08:57 PM

Wow! What a bargain aubergine!

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 09:02 PM

That's an awesome bargain!!

Ive been pronouncing Grindelwald with a v but not sure if that is the correct way!

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 10:07 PM

One of my more random cravings
Tinned spaghetti hoops
But not the hoops
Just the sauce

Aubergine 30-11-2018 10:17 PM

Do you have any, Beckie?

I've slept on the sofa the past two nights. I've never done that before! It felt more appealing than going to bed. :P I think it was because the heating was on in my front room and I had my heated throw in here and the bedroom was freezing...

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 10:20 PM

No :(

That's fair enough aubergine!
Its hard to move when you're all cosy

Aubergine 30-11-2018 10:32 PM

Oh boo. :(

Just trying to think of something for my secret santa at work. Think I may get the Brexit cookbook. :D

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 10:33 PM

Brexit cookbook?!

Aubergine 30-11-2018 10:37 PM

Yup! ;)

You up to much?

I am wondering whether to go to bed now or whether to risk ending up sleeping on the sofa again. :wow: I am super cosy.

Cacoethes 30-11-2018 10:50 PM

Sounds interesting!

Im about to go to bed

Moving is hard though when it's so cold!

Aubergine 30-11-2018 11:15 PM

It really is, isn't it?!

chinahorse 30-11-2018 11:22 PM

I moved to bed and am too tired to sleepm

Aubergine 30-11-2018 11:27 PM

Ugh. That's a horrible feeling, Lillie. I get like that sometimes. *ghu*

Cacoethes 01-12-2018 01:56 AM

I dont know why I'm still awake
Very unusual for me!
