No i was going to my mum's.
Only spent a short time there because jasmine didn't want to do anything because it's too hot and she and my step dad were going to the pub anyway for some music thing. So it was a quick visit! Mostly just chatted to mum.
Waiting for the bus home.
Then gonna go to sainsburys.

Thanks lindsay

Hope both your days are going ok

tamobhuuta 13-08-2022 04:21 PM

My sister has gone off again, everyone is off looking for her. No news is bad news.

Update: good news, the police found her :) smiley faces all round

one_step_closer 13-08-2022 04:40 PM

I hope you can relax for the rest of your day, Beckie. Be kind to yourself.

I'm glad your sister has been found, Tamo. Does she not respond well to treatment? She seems to run away a lot. How are you?

I need to trim back some bushes that are going through my fence and might be poking people who walk past but it's too hot. I hope we do get this thunderstorm that is predicted.

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 05:51 PM

Thanks lindsay
I'm home now
Tired and massive headache

I'm glad your sister is back tamo
Must be worrying

It is way too hot. I've just walked back from sainsburys (only a mile but it felt like much more in this heat)
Supposed to rain all week next week
I really hope it does!

nonperson 13-08-2022 06:27 PM

They (the weather people) have delayed the rain until Tuesday now D=

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 06:29 PM

How dare they!

nonperson 13-08-2022 06:52 PM

I know. They're sadistically toying with our emotions when our delicate little brains are already fried from the heat.

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 06:55 PM

Cruel. Very cruel

nonperson 13-08-2022 06:59 PM

They've gotta get their kicks somehow, I suppose.

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 07:12 PM

Guess so!

Have you been busy today?

nonperson 13-08-2022 07:16 PM

A little, or busier than I thought I might be. Worked a couple of hours this morning, then seeing as I was back early I harvested some potatoes and picked some french beans which have now been blanched and frozen and done a couple of other life admin things, bit of washing up etc etc. Watching the Harry Potter channel on Now... now.

Was it nice seeing Jasmine albeit briefly?

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 07:25 PM

Sounds productive!

Yeah it was ok. She was a bit fed up because of the heat and i am very emotional so not a great day overall

nonperson 13-08-2022 07:49 PM

Ah I'm sorry =/ Maybe next time will be better.

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 08:16 PM

I'm just so tired

tamobhuuta 13-08-2022 09:08 PM

It's her PTSD, she gets really bad flashbacks and gets to the point where death seems the only choice.

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 06:23 AM

Hope she's ok tamo

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 14-08-2022 10:10 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 10:37 AM

I'm ok i suppose
Have been to pilates and asda and just showered.
Don't really know what to do with myself now until i leave for work at 4:15pm.


tamobhuuta 14-08-2022 11:14 AM

I'm ok. My room was too hot again so I slept downstairs. I woke up early so I'm ahead of myself. I've got a friend coming round later so i need the house to look presentable.

Do you like reading? Watching TV? Doing puzzles? I would suggest a walk but maybe not in this heat! Though you could take a bottle of water.

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 11:15 AM

Hope you have a nice time

tamobhuuta 14-08-2022 11:17 AM

Sorry, i edited my post just before you posted.

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 11:28 AM

It's ok!

I've started rewatching snowpiercer.
Should keep me busy for a while.

tamobhuuta 14-08-2022 12:56 PM

What's snowpiercer?

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 01:17 PM

It's a series (and also a movie) about a frozen earth and the only survivors are on a train that never stops going round the earth. Different classes of passengers. There's a murder. Class wars and stuff. I like post apocalyptic type things. I'm hoping the new season will come out soon

one_step_closer 14-08-2022 02:24 PM

That might just scare me, Beckie.

I hope everyones day is going ok. The thunderstorm here is predicted to arrive at 5pm.

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 02:55 PM

I want a thunderstorm!

nonperson 14-08-2022 03:29 PM

Me too =(

Is Snowpiercer only on Netflix?

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 03:33 PM

Yeah i think so np

I have to leave for work in 45 mins
Gonna feel weird doing a 5-close when I've only been doing 10:30-6 or 12-6!!!

nonperson 14-08-2022 03:47 PM

Ah that's a bummer. It sounds like something I'd watch.

Shift work has got to suck if you keep doing different shifts. =/

Are Sunday evenings quieter or will the heat bring all the people out?

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 04:01 PM

I think you'd like it

I'm covering for someone today so hopefully it won't be a regular thing!

It's been really busy this week because of the weather. We have a huge beer garden.
And of course the sunday roasts. But they will have run out of roasts by the time i get there tbh

nonperson 14-08-2022 04:10 PM

Yeah I like post apocalyptic stuff too.

That's good it might be a one off! That's too late to be working imo =P

I hope it goes ok and that all the bored people who don't know what else to do with themselves in this heat stay away =)

one_step_closer 14-08-2022 04:43 PM

I hope your shift goes ok, Beckie.

How has your day been NP?

nonperson 14-08-2022 04:58 PM

I dunno, just been plodding along with stuff. Couple of hours of work this morning and then the usual uninteresting laundry/washing up sort of chores. =/

Managed to put my duvet cover back on with remarkably little drama though, which is a surprise. Small wins, eh? =)

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 10:08 PM

I'm home!
It was completely dead tonight!
Didn't need to worry at all
Still late to be out for me though!
And i got driven home which was nice

Well done for doing the stuff np!

nonperson 14-08-2022 10:12 PM

Welcome home!

Which sounds weird...

Welcome home to RYL?

I'm glad it was quiet!

Cacoethes 14-08-2022 10:27 PM

Thank you!

I should probably go to bed because i start at 10:30 tomorrow morning (which isn't even early tbh)
I am tired though

nonperson 14-08-2022 10:54 PM

Eep yes, go to bed.

I'm considering bed too, although i have nothing to get up for tomorrow

Darkwings44 15-08-2022 04:19 AM

hi everybody!!! =)

Cacoethes 15-08-2022 07:23 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 15-08-2022 09:53 AM

Hi people :) how are you?

not_so_insig 15-08-2022 11:57 AM

Morning all. I am very hot.

tamobhuuta 15-08-2022 12:08 PM

Boo. I'm in my room with my fan on full blast. Do you have to do anything today?

not_so_insig 15-08-2022 12:33 PM

No thankfully I don't other than some household chores. But they can wait until it is cooler. I am not waiting for any amazon parcels today but have tesco coming tomorrow when it's cooler hopefully.

one_step_closer 15-08-2022 01:30 PM

Hi everyone.

Did anyone get a thunderstorm last night? I did but it didn't really come to much and it's still quite humid today, drizzling a bit.

How are your days going?

I think my brother might have bought me an air fryer. It's very kind of him but right now at least I won't be using it because I'm very low. When I had money I kept buying him the things he wanted or needed. He has more money now but I don't like him spending it on me, he can't have enough to buy an air fryer for me. Now I know what he must have felt like when I kept buying him things.

Cacoethes 15-08-2022 02:15 PM

Hey guys.
No thunderstorm here.
There was one predicted for 5pm but it appears this is no longer the case :(

one_step_closer 15-08-2022 03:29 PM

The thunderstorm yesterday was predicted for 5pm but came way later.

You can't trust the weather/weather people.

not_so_insig 15-08-2022 03:33 PM

I havent had any thunderstorms.

tamobhuuta 15-08-2022 04:09 PM

It's warm but muggy outside, I reckon warmer than predicted. We haven't had a thunderstorm yet. I'm having a cup of tea with my peoples in the garden.

one_step_closer 15-08-2022 04:45 PM

Do you find tea helps to cool you down, Tamo? I know you're supposed to drink hot drinks on hot days.

not_so_insig 15-08-2022 07:00 PM

It's raining! But still very hot.
