Ah bulk buying is wise.

I usually keep an eye out for when they're on offer so don't normally run out. Need to do a small shop later anyway so will pick some up then. I've got just enough to do what I need today anyway.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 10:11 AM

I bulk buy deodorant and hand soap too. And toilet roll!

Ah that's good!
Will you be going in the evening?

nonperson 25-10-2021 10:25 AM

I buy bulk toilet roll too, was very smug at the beginning of 2020. =)

Not sure, might try to go late afternoon because there's bits I need for dinner.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 10:29 AM

Haha! Me too

Well, it's half term so there won't be the after school rush. But maybe an after work rush.

nonperson 25-10-2021 10:38 AM

I was thinking 4:30 when everyone finishes work here and I can sneak out unnoticed (the downfall of living at work) which will hopefully be before the main work rush.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 10:51 AM

Sounds like a plan!

Just today to get through then I have 2 days off!

nonperson 25-10-2021 11:09 AM

Woohoo! Should be quieter today, right?

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 11:10 AM

It should be
But it is half term so maybe a bit busier than a usual Monday

nonperson 25-10-2021 11:47 AM

Do you get a lot of kids there?

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 01:24 PM

Afternoon everyone, seems busy here today. I hope you all have a good day.

nonperson 25-10-2021 03:21 PM

Only because I'm not at work, Lindsay. =P

Hope your day is going ok as well.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 03:23 PM

Are you getting up to much?

I hoovered, that's all.

nonperson 25-10-2021 03:28 PM

Just laundry at the moment which just involves waiting for the washing machine to finish, heh.

Should probably make a phone call as well, ugh >.<

Hoovering is important and a good task to achieve!

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 03:31 PM

Can you set a goal to make the phone call before the washing machine is finished, like a challenge to get it out of the way? I know it's hard though.

nonperson 25-10-2021 03:39 PM

I'm going to have to wait until the washing machine is finished because my kitchen/living room is open plan and it'll be too noisy to be on the phone if it starts spinning! It hasn't got long to go.

It's not super urgent to make the phone call so if I don't do it today it'll have to be next Monday and I think that will be ok.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 04:44 PM

Sounds like you've got a plan with the phone call. Do you know what you might have for dinner?

not_so_insig 25-10-2021 04:50 PM

Hello all. I had a bad night. Fortunately I have defrosted my tea last night so I dont have to worry about it.

nonperson 25-10-2021 04:58 PM

I'm going to make tagine tonight, Lindsay. =) Really should get a move on, how is it 5pm already?!

That's good you don't have to worry about tea, Dawn.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 04:58 PM

Sorry you had a bad night Dawn, I hope tonight is better.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 04:59 PM

I don't know what tagine is.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 06:50 PM

Hey everyone
What a day!

nonperson 25-10-2021 07:44 PM

It's like a Moroccan casserole as far as I can tell. I've never had it before.

Was it a busy one, Beckie?

not_so_insig 25-10-2021 09:20 PM

Thanks Lindsay I hope so too.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 08:05 AM

It was busy at lunchtime then calmed down then got busy again np!

Morning everyone

nonperson 26-10-2021 10:18 AM

Morning. I appear to have forgotten how cold is it outside the house.

tamobhuuta 26-10-2021 10:19 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Yesterday my big sister came round and stayed for dinner :)

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 10:58 AM

I wasn't cold when I left the house

I'm ok thanks. Just arrived for my CPA.

That sounds nice :)

How are you both?

tamobhuuta 26-10-2021 11:31 AM

I hope the CPA goes well.
My godmother is coming to see me, it's been a while because of the nightmare on the M25.

nonperson 26-10-2021 01:12 PM

Hope it's going ok, Beckie.

Best time to be on the M25 is Christmas morning, not a car in sight.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 01:27 PM

Thanks guys
It was meh

I've been on the m25 on Christmas day!
Sooo empty! But we did count 5 broken down vehicles on the way to wherever we were going!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 01:59 PM


best time to be on any road is 3am. It seem to be before all the delivery vans and HGVs are everywhwere (about 4am to 7am) but after all the night stift workers have switched over. basically everywhere is empty at 3am, roads, shops, often even the internet :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 02:21 PM

Very true Hazel!

nonperson 26-10-2021 03:09 PM

To be honest sometimes we're all awake at similar times during the night but just don't come online. We could definitely repopulate the internet at 3am!

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:18 PM

I always come online if I'm up during the night!
Basically all my waking hours I'm either here or at work
What a thrilling life I lead

shadow-light 26-10-2021 03:20 PM

i try not to come online if awake in the middle of the night. apparenlty it's "bad sleep hygeine" :eyeroll:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:31 PM

It is definitely bad sleep hygiene!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 03:35 PM

pff who needs hygeinic sleep

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:42 PM

My sleep hygiene is really bad
Olanzapine ensures I have sleep regardless!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:15 PM

i seriously suck at sleeping... fairly sure my brains "natural" sleep time is from about 5am till about 11am, which obviously doesn't work with like life... not that I have all that much going on in my life right now, but still feels "wrong" somehow so I end up laying in bed (often playing on my phone or listening to a podcast0) from about 11pm until I finally feel tired at about 4ish then turn phone off

then try to still get up at a "resonable" time :laugh: I am getting better at refusing morning appointments though so that's making it a bit easier

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 04:25 PM

That's another sleep hygiene no no!
You shouldn't get into bed unless you are actually going to sleep apparently! Or use your bedroom for anything other than sleep.

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:32 PM

ye... but i tried all the sleep hygeine stuff for years and found little benefit so gave up on it :P

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:33 PM

also my house is FREEZING at night so like hell I am sitting downstairs until 4 am :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 04:41 PM

Yeah me too.
Pills are the only thing that work!

Fair enough!

nonperson 26-10-2021 05:47 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 05:54 PM

Hey np
How be you?

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:13 PM

Cold. =(


Cacoethes 26-10-2021 06:17 PM

Are you at home?
I just had the heating on for an hour to warm the house up.

I'm ok.
Just watching QI

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:20 PM

Yeah I've been home for a while. I just need to go get changed and maybe putting the heating on for a bit would be a good idea.

I'm watching Big Bang Theory.

Old or new QI?

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 06:26 PM

I hope you warm up swiftly!

Love a bit of big bang theory

New one
Well, i think it's still old but it's Sandi, not Stephen

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:41 PM

I had a warm cat on my lap but he left!

That's how I classify QI too. Sandi is new, Stephen is old.
