Hey fam

How is everyone?

Cacoethes 23-07-2021 08:58 PM


I'm good thanks.
How are you?

nonperson 23-07-2021 10:33 PM

Someone ate all the strawberries and cream fudge D=

not_so_insig 24-07-2021 12:39 AM

I may have ordered some fudge from the company you lot are going on about *cough*bad influence*cough*

nonperson 24-07-2021 12:49 AM

It's that Beckie who's the bad influence ;-)

What flavour/s did you choose, Dawn?

not_so_insig 24-07-2021 02:15 AM

I ordered cherry bakewell, Scottish tablet and strawberries and cream.

nonperson 24-07-2021 07:25 AM

Good choices!

I tried the cherry bakewell one but it didn't have enough cherries in it for my liking. Still tasty though.

Elmer 24-07-2021 08:41 AM

I love fudge. Slab do huge vegan bars and I am so so tempted.

I hope everyone is OK this morning and enjoying the cooler weather. We have a thunderstorm :)

nonperson 24-07-2021 08:53 AM

Morning Elmer and everyone.

Fudge is so good.

The cool weather is nice. No thunder here, just drizzle. But it's so dark out there and I need to go out in it very soon but it's just making me want to hibernate.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 10:14 AM

Don't be blaming me! I've just improved your lives with fudge :tongue2:

Morning guys!

It was so nice to be able to sleep UNDER the covers instead if sprawled out on top of them

nonperson 24-07-2021 10:55 AM

Ah that is a good point. You've done us all a favour really!

Yes it was nice to sleep under the covers! I don't think I sleep well when I'm left to freestyle without the restraint of a duvet.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 10:58 AM

I have! :tongue2:

I'm the same. I hate not having a duvet to contain me!
I don't know how some people share a bed in that heat!

tamobhuuta 24-07-2021 11:47 AM

I would hate sharing a bed. I too slept the whole night under covers. Now it's drizzling and I'm confused as to why my mum has hung her washing out.

nonperson 24-07-2021 11:50 AM

The answer is to have a really big bed and be able to sleep with a sizeable gap in between bodies.

Doesn't work if you have a bed hogger though...

Haha, maybe she's hoping for sunshine and warmth later? There's a person here who hangs washing out in all weathers, even when it's freezing in the winter!

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 12:10 PM

That is a bit strange tamo!
Line dried washing does smell great though!

Ah ok! My last boyfriend was a hugger so I always got way too hot at night!

nonperson 24-07-2021 12:42 PM

Mine wasn't a hugger but was always in the middle of the bed...

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 12:45 PM

Ugh how annoying!

tamobhuuta 24-07-2021 01:29 PM

Has anyone got plans for today?

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 02:09 PM

Just been to asda.
It was so busy!
That's all I have planned today
Oh and put my washing away. But meh

How about you?

not_so_insig 24-07-2021 02:11 PM

I am going to my parents house later but other than taking care of my kitties I have no plans.

tamobhuuta 24-07-2021 02:27 PM

Are your kitties OK?

My big sister is visiting :)

Well done Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 02:33 PM

Thanks tamo :)

nonperson 24-07-2021 03:51 PM

I think everyone goes to the supermarket and shops when the weather is bad.

I'll be doing my food shop later.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 03:57 PM

Yeah that's true

Fun times
What are you getting?

nonperson 24-07-2021 04:04 PM

Literally everything. Need to do a major restock of the freezer and general supplies.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 04:06 PM

Ah. A big shop then!

nonperson 24-07-2021 04:22 PM

Yep so it'll be an Asda trip because they have the self serve tills you can take trolleys through.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 04:29 PM

Yes that's always handy!
Someone blocked the basket check outs with a trolley today. Was not amused and I made a huge show of squeezing past it and glaring at them

nonperson 24-07-2021 04:37 PM

It's so annoying when they do that. Why don't they just go to a normal till where there is space!

Asda doesn't sell the rice cakes I like though, grr.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 04:43 PM

They even have self service tills specifically for trolleys now with the refurb so it's like wtf?!

Ah that's a shame.
I hope you find an acceptable replacement!

nonperson 24-07-2021 04:55 PM

It's irritating when different supermarkets do different things.

I'm going to pick up a fan from Argos on the way past too. Wish I'd just bought it from there in the first place rather than now having to mess about returning the mega noisy one to Amazon. I might have to go into a post office, argh!

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 04:57 PM

It is

Good plan.
That is a pain. I've never returned anything to amazon so I don't even know how you do it!
Ugh post office

nonperson 24-07-2021 05:10 PM

I'm not sure either. I suppose the first thing to do is request the return label...

I've done returns in the past where you just drop the parcel somewhere like a BP garage and it gets collected.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 05:15 PM

Hopefully it will be easy!

They do sell fans in asda too.
I saw some today

nonperson 24-07-2021 05:41 PM

Well so far I'm having issues printing the bloody return label so not a good start... Then I either have to take it to a post office or a parcel drop box thingy but I think it might be too big... It's all pre-paid though so I just have to hand it in and run.

I thought they'd be out of stock because of last week's weather! I only ordered from Amazon because it would be delivered to me (pure laziness) and now Argos because it's on the way to Asda, I know the system in there and they do the same one I have already which is very quiet but I'm fed up of moving it up and down the stairs!

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 05:57 PM

Ugh what a pain!

I thought they would be sold out too!
But there were loads in there
Best to go with what you know though!

nonperson 24-07-2021 06:23 PM

Yep, learned my lesson about buying a well reviewed but unknown fan from Amazon! XD

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 06:59 PM

Always a risk with Internet shopping!

nonperson 24-07-2021 09:03 PM

The guy in Argos was just like "What a surprise, another fan!" Haha.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 09:08 PM

They must be selling tons of them right now!

nonperson 24-07-2021 09:10 PM

I saw some people walking out with one too.

Cacoethes 24-07-2021 09:11 PM

We are supposed to be getting another heatwave in August :'(

nonperson 24-07-2021 11:14 PM


My new fan is also super noisy... Maybe the old one used to be that loud? Now I don't know what to do about the other one, gonna have to sound test it again I suppose!

Gah, what dramas!

Cacoethes 25-07-2021 10:16 AM

Oh noooo! D:

morning guys

tamobhuuta 25-07-2021 12:10 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you? Any plans?

Cacoethes 25-07-2021 12:12 PM

Morning tamo!
I'm ok thanks :)
No plans today! Will get out for a walk at some point though because its cooled down loads!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 25-07-2021 12:19 PM

I'm ok. I was so tired last night that I fell asleep in my clothes. I might have a shower this afternoon.

Cacoethes 25-07-2021 12:25 PM

Did you have a good sleep?
Shower would be good. I need to have one too

tamobhuuta 25-07-2021 12:41 PM

I'm going to MAKE myself have a shower.

Cacoethes 25-07-2021 12:49 PM

The carers haven't turned up yet...
