Attempting to chillax and keep it together.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 03:47 PM

Sounds like a good plan

nonperson 24-12-2018 04:44 PM

Erf... so unmotivated and unChristmassy...

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 04:48 PM

It doesn't feel Christmassy for some reason!
Have you got much done np?

nonperson 24-12-2018 04:53 PM

Nah it doesn't... I don't even have decorations up.

Erm, had a nap earlier... but I'm showered now and changed the bed. Gonna do some wrapping in a bit.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:02 PM

I have a tree up but still doesn't feel like Christmas eve!
I am usually with the family on Christmas eve so maybe that's why!

Well done!

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:05 PM

How come you're not there today?

I'd probably feel more Christmassy if I was home too.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:08 PM

Because I didn't think there were buses today.
Turns out there were!
But illusive brother has just got a car so he's going to drive me as he lives fairly close. What a luxury!

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:13 PM

Oh that's weird! Nice that you'll have a personal chauffeur instead though. =D

I have to drive myself tomorrow... boo.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:18 PM

It is weird.
I thought it was sunday timetable today which means no buses at all! But I saw one in town. Very strange
It'll be a nice treat to get a lift to my mum's! Usually takes about 1.5- 2 hours on 2 buses.

I wish I could drive myself!

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:21 PM

Maybe they were just doing a reduced Monday service instead.

How long will it take by car?

It's about a 1.5 hour drive for me, but there will no traffic on the motorway tomorrow morning so it may take less. =)

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:25 PM


It will take about 45 mins by car

Thats quite a while to be in the car
I used to have 2 hour driving lessons and it was so draining!

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:27 PM

45 minutes is a good journey length!

I don't mind the drive. I put music on and quite like it as long as there's no traffic.

Driving lessons are different though because you're still learning and having to pay SO much attention which makes it even more exhausting.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:30 PM

That doesn't sound too bad then!

Yes that is true!
There are about a million and one things to pay attention to!

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:37 PM

That shouldn't really change when you pass your test... >.>

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:44 PM

That is true!

Buttons. 24-12-2018 05:48 PM

*remains safely on pavements*

nonperson 24-12-2018 05:48 PM

Cars can easily get onto pavements. >=)

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 05:50 PM

And rude teenagers that can't possibly walk behind their friends for 2 seconds so you can get past :plain:

Buttons. 24-12-2018 05:59 PM

*reminds self never to be within driving range of Np*

That is annoying Beckie! I also remember me and support worker trying to get along the pavement where a group of kids had left their bikes, asked them to move and get severely sworn at.

nonperson 24-12-2018 06:02 PM

I wouldn't run you over, Buttons. =(

Buttons. 24-12-2018 06:03 PM

Thankyou Np that is good to know :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 06:03 PM

So far I've watched monsters university, zootropolis and now mary poppins

Some kids do, my neighbours' kids are great. Others can be little shits.

I missed Monster University? I love that film. I'm recording Mary Poppins.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 06:08 PM

Some kids can be ok!

Yep you did miss it!
It is a good film

Buttons. 24-12-2018 06:08 PM

Sod it, now watching Mary Poppins :)

Buttons. 24-12-2018 06:09 PM

If someone could just magic my takeaway order an hour early that would be me happy :) A spoon full of sugar and stir fry noodles.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 06:14 PM


Ooo what have you ordered?

Buttons. 24-12-2018 06:18 PM

Salt and pepper chicken and stir fried noodles with onions and shiz. I did think about beef and egg fried rice but changed my mind. What are you having for dinner?

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:19 PM

You missed the Olympia highlights Beckie!

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:20 PM

I am having a chippy tea!

Buttons. 24-12-2018 06:22 PM

Mmm chippy tea.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 06:25 PM

Both of your dinners sound awesome!
I'm just having a baked potato and beans

Oh no I forgot about olympia!

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:25 PM

Nobody has said it yet but Merry Christmas eve!

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:26 PM

Olympia highlights should be on iPlayer Beckie.

I did say it this morning!

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:30 PM

I must have missed it Buttons apologies

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 06:32 PM

I hope my kitties are ok because they are in the cattery over Christmas.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 06:32 PM

Ill have to catch up on it at some point!

Got to get up early tomorrow.
Illusive brother is picking me up around 8am

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 07:14 PM

I have had my chippy tea:-D

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 07:15 PM

Was it good?

I've just had my baked potato!

not_so_insig 24-12-2018 07:18 PM

Yes it was lovely.

I like doing jacket potato and beans in my slow cooker.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 07:19 PM

I need to use my slow cooker more
Only used it once and that was last year!
Did do some delicious ham in it

nonperson 24-12-2018 07:23 PM

Ohhhh I've missed all the good films on BBC1 today... although Mary Poppins is still on (didn't realise that was such a long film).

I can't stop watching Pokemon. =/

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 07:25 PM

Oh no!
Yeah it is quite a long film!

Pokemon is awesome

nonperson 24-12-2018 07:28 PM

It is awesome. =D I've been sorting Pokemon to evolve on Pokemon Go as well.

It's Pokemon's fault I've got nothing done today! >.<

nonperson 24-12-2018 07:30 PM

Mary Poppins is also awesome though.... Hm. I keep seeing adverts for the new film, still not sure what I think about it yet.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 07:30 PM

I'm not sure about it either

Yes its definitely pokemons fault! :p

nonperson 24-12-2018 07:33 PM

I've kinda given up doing anything productive now.

Wrapping and recycling might have to be done tomorrow morning.

Cacoethes 24-12-2018 07:38 PM

Fair enough!
What time are you setting off tomorrow?

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 09:41 AM.
