I couldn't wait that long for a package.

I bought things from The Book People when they were closing down but the things never arrived and there's no way to contact them any more to try and get a refund. I'm mega annoyed.

one_step_closer 03-02-2021 02:57 PM

I might have scared the book people away though because they didn't reply to my last message which I sent when I was unwell:


Is there any way you can search for a tracking number? If you're going to be able to that, it was an important person to repost the box. I can't do the lnfo whlie people people are stying in or crying and falling. Pleasentry your best.


not_so_insig 03-02-2021 03:01 PM

Tbf the package that took 4 months to arrive was an ebay one and I thought it was lost in the post. I had another one take 3 months again that was from within the UK.

tamobhuuta 03-02-2021 03:25 PM

I had rice and yogurt for lunch.

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 04:00 PM

The boiler guys said they'll be a few more hours at least so I went to asda!

nonperson 03-02-2021 04:08 PM

I might start ending my emails with "Please try your best" >.>

Hours?! Did you manage to get something for lunch?

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 04:11 PM

What's happened np?! :/

Yep I got a hoisin duck wrap and some cookies! And some other stuff

nonperson 03-02-2021 04:14 PM

Nothing! I just liked how Lindsay signed off her email =P

Yum! Have you got dinner beside you just in case they still haven't finished by then?

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 04:30 PM

Ah ok!
I thought someone might have annoyed you!

Unfortunately no. I got tortellini for tonight. But I *think* they are beginning to pack up. I'm not sure

nonperson 03-02-2021 05:29 PM

Oh people are always annoying me! XD

I hope they've packed up now.

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 05:34 PM


Nope. Still here. Looks like they were just tidying up a bit

nonperson 03-02-2021 06:18 PM

Goddamnit, are they every going to finish and leave you in peace? =(

There's a clap for Captain Tom and the NHS tonight at 6pm for anyone who might be interested in taking part or listening in.

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 06:29 PM

I think they said they're nearly done! Just doing the electrical bits now.
My new boiler connects up to the wifi 0_0

I won't clap because anxiety but I will listen out and have a minutes silence (if the boiler guys permit me to!)

nonperson 03-02-2021 06:37 PM

Ooh fancy. My tumble dryer connects to wifi too. Not entirely sure why.

Yeah, I don't clap either and only have one neighbour so I'd likely be clapping on my own... but I do like listening to the clapping in village across the pond.

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 06:43 PM

That's a fancy tumble dryer! Why would a tumble dryer need to connect to wifi though?

Must be quite a close village then np!

nonperson 03-02-2021 06:47 PM

I have no idea. Never connected it to the wifi though, don't see the point!

I suppose technically it is my village but I'm not in the main bit of it. =P

My thumb is really sore. Cut my nails last night and then promptly jabbed something right under the nail at work this morning and now it's looking a bit bruised. *whine*

I'm also hungry. And grumpy. =P

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 06:54 PM


Are you home now np?

nonperson 03-02-2021 06:58 PM

Yees, home at about 4:45!

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 07:05 PM


What's for dinner?

nonperson 03-02-2021 07:19 PM

Kinda wanted more pasta but cba to cook it so I've shoved some fish and chips in the oven instead. And had a cheese snack to keep me going for the next 25 minutes. =D

What tortellini have you got?

Also I didn't hear anyone clapping for Captain Tom. =(

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 07:25 PM

Sounds good!

Spinach and ricotta :)

Neither did I.
Did do my minute's silence though!

nonperson 03-02-2021 07:29 PM

I stood outside for about a minute in silence so that sort of counts. Everyone can pay their tributes in their own way.

Mm spinach and ricotta is the best. Do you have it with a sauce?

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 07:35 PM


It is!
No I don't tend to use a sauce. Do you?

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 07:48 PM

I finally have my kitchen back!
And my new boiler is wonderful!
I'm so old. I get excited about boilers now...

nonperson 03-02-2021 08:07 PM

Haha, well boilers are important and even more so when it hasn't been working properly for ages!

And sometimes I have a sauce but generally not. Just lots of cheese on top.

not_so_insig 03-02-2021 08:12 PM

Yay Beckie. You will have to let us know if your house if any warmer.

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 08:23 PM


I had lots of cheese on top :)

It is lovely and warm thanks Dawn!

tamobhuuta 03-02-2021 08:43 PM

I'm glad your boiler is sorted :)

Cacoethes 03-02-2021 08:45 PM

Thanks tamo :)

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 11:09 AM

Morning guys

one_step_closer 04-02-2021 11:40 AM

Morning Beckie, how are you and your new friendly boiler?

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 11:45 AM

Hey lindsay

I'm ok thanks. And the boiler is wonderful!
How are you?

one_step_closer 04-02-2021 11:51 AM


I'm just the same as usual but got cookies from Tesco.

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 11:51 AM

Yay cookies!!
What kind?

one_step_closer 04-02-2021 11:54 AM

Chocolate chip. I like their honeycomb ones but the only had chocolate ones left. Let's see how long it takes me to get through the pack! I don't know how people can have multipack treats at home and only have one a day.

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 11:57 AM

Haha! Yeah I'm the same. I don't know how people can do that either!

not_so_insig 04-02-2021 12:40 PM

People seem to be running late today. The bin men are late and the postman is late.

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 12:47 PM

Our binmen were early!

not_so_insig 04-02-2021 12:50 PM

Lucky you Beckie!

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 01:00 PM

I don't really mind when the bins are collected
As long as they do get collected!

nonperson 04-02-2021 01:09 PM

I want to go home. =(

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 01:15 PM

Awww np :(
When do you get to go home?

nonperson 04-02-2021 01:26 PM

4:30 =(

And half an hour for lunch at 1.

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 01:29 PM

Ugh that sucks :(
I wish I could come and rescue you! <3

nonperson 04-02-2021 01:42 PM

Thanks <3

I don't think anyone would notice if I went home.

nonperson 04-02-2021 01:43 PM

That wasn't supposed to sound so self-pitying! Just meant I think I could get away with it. =P

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 01:44 PM

Maybe you could take a longer lunch break to give yourself a rest if no one would notice?

Haha! :p

nonperson 04-02-2021 01:54 PM

I need to see people after lunch to give them jobs out of the rain >=(

I've been having little on off breaks all morning. It's that sort of day.

Cacoethes 04-02-2021 01:56 PM

Ah ok. That's annoying

Sometimes that's what's needed

one_step_closer 04-02-2021 01:57 PM

Taking little breaks sounds like a good plan. I hope everything passes quickly and you can get home.
