I have a list! It just wasn't in my bedroom last night.

Morning all :)

Buttons. 10-06-2018 07:48 AM

Morning Lillie and the rest :)

Aubergine 10-06-2018 07:49 AM

Hooray for lists!

Morning. :)

I've tidied the flat and the second load of washing is on. It's getting warm here already!

chinahorse 10-06-2018 08:07 AM

Hey buttons. Up to much today?

Blimey you've been productive aubergine!
I have stripped my bed sheets and have some of those on.

Not sure a out the temperature here but we have cloudless blue skies now. It was overcast not so long ago which is impressive.

Buttons. 10-06-2018 08:24 AM

Hats off Aubergine :) It's sweltering here too. I feel sorry for my dog-she has fur :P I'm in a Harry Potter T-shirt and it's still too hot-what happened to Britain? Bring on winter.

Well done Lille :)

I'm just going to roast to death-renued sympathy for my dog who has fur :P

Did buy a screwdriver awhile ago but according to support workers it's gone walk about so despite the fact bought a fan can't put it together so have to wait. Not risking supermarket on a Sunday :P

chinahorse 10-06-2018 08:35 AM

I'm sure you're looking after her and ensuring she has plenty of water buttons. Apparently freezing meat broth and giving it to them is a good way to help them cool down.

Oh no! Support worker may be able to use a butter knife or spoon though. That's how I put my fan together.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 10:59 AM

Morning everyone

chinahorse 10-06-2018 11:46 AM

Morning :) how're you?

It's gone gray and horrible here :/ just as I'm finally ready and able to go into town. So I've made a cuppa with my last bit of milk.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 11:52 AM

Im ok thanks!

Its pretty grey here too :/
Do you have an umbrella?

chinahorse 10-06-2018 11:59 AM

I do but I need to buy heavy things so wont be able to carry an umbrella too.

Someone make me get off my ass and go to town?

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 12:09 PM

That's a predicament.
Ive been caught out with that too

Always best to get it over with imo

chinahorse 10-06-2018 12:10 PM

My get up and go got up and went without me though beckie :'(

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 12:14 PM

You can do it!

chinahorse 10-06-2018 12:36 PM

*grumps* I'm out now.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 01:11 PM

Well done!!

Im just back from asda
Got a driving lesson later.
New instructor and new area so a bit nervous!

Buttons. 10-06-2018 01:48 PM

Well done Lille :)

And that sounds fab Beckie, although understandable to be nervous :) I'm sure you'll do fab :)

I've had supernoodles, dog has gotten rid of the latest fly in the house and am watching TV. Pretty alright Sunday :)

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 01:53 PM

Thanks :)

Sounds like an ok day Buttons!
Watching anything good?

chinahorse 10-06-2018 01:54 PM

Sounds like a chill afternoon buttons.

Hope the lesson goes well beckie :)

I'm back. Got home and immediately remembered I hadn't gotilk so went to the corner shop. Only managed to go to savers but that was the most urgent.

Buttons. 10-06-2018 01:54 PM

It is :) Bit of Josh Widdecombe's stand up. Not my favourite but still find it funny.

Glad you got what you needed Lillie.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 02:01 PM

Well done for getting that done Lillie!

I like Josh Widdecombe!

Buttons. 10-06-2018 02:03 PM

So do I, just can't betray Russell Howard :P

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 02:04 PM

Russell Howard is life

chinahorse 10-06-2018 02:07 PM


Josh widdicombe does my nut in.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 02:13 PM

Does anyone watch taskmaster?
Its hilarious. And Russell Howard is in the latest season

Buttons. 10-06-2018 02:18 PM

Russell Howard <3

No haven't caught it yet Beckie. Worth watching then?

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 02:23 PM

It makes me laugh out loud, not many programmes can do that!
Its presented by Greg Davies and he basically makes comedians to do random and difficult tasks.

not_so_insig 10-06-2018 02:42 PM

I have made shortbread and slimming world houmous. Needed more salt and pepper, less lemon juice and more paprika in the houmous. Shortbread is crumbly but otherwise fine. Who wants some? I am just having a rest before tackling the Welsh rarebit muffins.

Buttons. 10-06-2018 03:16 PM

Oh my days Beckie definitely need to download then! I like Greg Davies :)

Glad you're enjoying your food Dawn, never been a fan of hummus so wouldn't know the difference but rest sounds good.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 03:22 PM

You should download it!

I LOVE houmous!
I should try and make the sw version.

Driving lesson at 4.
Had to not drink for the last hour so I don't end up needing the toilet halfway through my 2 hour lesson!

Buttons. 10-06-2018 03:25 PM

I will take it into consideration and learn how to spell houmous apparently :P

I know you'll do brilliantly Beckie. Although appreciate the loo issue so probably a good plan for now. I'd get a drink after you've done the lesson though, don't want to get dehydrated especially in this weather -_-

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 03:32 PM

I think it can be spelled either way!

Thank You my dear :)
I wont dehydrated. Got plenty of coke zero in :p

Eska 10-06-2018 03:43 PM

Afternoon all

Hope the lesson goes well Beckie

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 03:44 PM

Hi eska!

Thanks :)

Buttons. 10-06-2018 03:50 PM

Afternoon Eska hows things?

not_so_insig 10-06-2018 04:06 PM

I can't make welsh rarebit muffins :-( . It requires a egg and I have none.

chinahorse 10-06-2018 05:35 PM

Oh no! Not got a corner shop?

not_so_insig 10-06-2018 05:57 PM

There's a shop in the next village but I cba to walk in the heat. I am going to town tomorrow so I will get some eggs then.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 06:12 PM

Driving lesson done!
Was quite good
Although I did end up realy needing the toilet halfway through :p

chinahorse 10-06-2018 06:25 PM

Fair enough dawn.

Oh no beckie! Glad it was good other than that though.

one_step_closer 10-06-2018 06:46 PM

Well done Beckie! In the book I'm reading just now the surgeon catheterised himself when he was a junior because he had been to the pub and didn't want to have to keep excusing himself to go to the toilet during surgery. He let the urine drain into his shoes. Tip for your next lesson.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 07:05 PM

Thanks guys!

I did something fairly similar to that Lindsay!
Me and a nurse friend were very drunk and I asked her to catherterise me so I didn't have to keep going to the toilet!
Except she had the proper stuff so the urine just went into a bag.
Fun times :p

one_step_closer 10-06-2018 07:32 PM

I think I'd rather just go to the toilet...

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 07:34 PM

In hindsight, it probably wasn't a great idea :p

one_step_closer 10-06-2018 07:37 PM

Drunken times plus some medical knowledge might not always be good! Reminds me of Casualty/Holby when they attach each other to drips.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 07:40 PM

Not always the best idea!

Aubergine 10-06-2018 07:45 PM


I have been asleep pretty much the whole day! Peopling has exhausted me this week! Quieter week next week. Phew.

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 07:47 PM

Peopleing is tiring!

one_step_closer 10-06-2018 07:49 PM

I was going to say peopling could be prescribed as a sleeping aid but actually it might be too stressful.

Will you manage to get some sleep tonight?

Cacoethes 10-06-2018 07:55 PM

Too stressful I would say!

Driving made me sleepy

Aubergine 10-06-2018 07:56 PM

Beckie! How are you?! Well done on the driving lesson! :)

Peopling really is very tiring. I didn't get the cooking done today! I've just put a pork joint in though, so I'll at least have done a bit and I've got a couple of meals in the freezer from stuff I've made before, so it's not the end of the world. :)
