*hands out motivation*

Chocolate hobnobs are also top tier!

nonperson 19-06-2020 05:31 PM

Dark chocolate hobnobs particularly.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 05:35 PM

Oh yes definitely!

What's everyone's plans for this evening?

nonperson 19-06-2020 05:37 PM

Ooh glad you agree. Dark chocolate can be a bit controversial.

Weeding and something for dinner. Exciting. =/


Cacoethes 19-06-2020 05:43 PM

I like dark chocolate!

Good luck!
Something for dinner and TV for me. Also very exciting!

tamobhuuta 19-06-2020 05:49 PM

I'm going to watch Mass on the internet then have curry for dinner.

The Worst Witch 19-06-2020 05:50 PM

Im okay thanks, glad things are moving forward in terms of lockdown easing. Were slightly behind you in terms of what were allowed to do.

What have you been up to? Anything exciting??

nonperson 19-06-2020 05:53 PM

Sounds good, Tamo. You have curry a lot, I'm jealous.

What's everyone else's dinner plans?

I'm never up to anything exciting. Been sat here for 2.5 hours trying to get outside. I suck. :pinch:

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 05:59 PM

I haven't decided on dinner yet
Maybe fajitas

You can do it np! I get that motivation is hard sometimes though

nonperson 19-06-2020 06:02 PM

I've got a deadline to get it all done by Monday when it gets inspected... Finding it hard to even care today though. =(

I will try to get a tiny bit done at least.

I also haven't decided on dinner. Maybe soup.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 06:05 PM

Ugh inspections are so annoying

nonperson 19-06-2020 06:08 PM

Yup, but if there wasn't an inspection I probably wouldn't look after the garden at all.

tamobhuuta 19-06-2020 06:11 PM

I hope you do enough for the inspection.

We love curry in this house.

The Worst Witch 19-06-2020 06:12 PM

We’re having spag bol. I remembered to defrost some mince, I usually forget!

nonperson 19-06-2020 06:13 PM

Thanks. It'll be fine, probably.

Who doesn't love curry! =)

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 06:21 PM

True np!

Curry is awesome. As is spag bol!

nonperson 19-06-2020 06:26 PM

Spag bol is also an excellent dinner. Haven't had that for a while.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 06:50 PM

Neither have I

nonperson 19-06-2020 07:11 PM

I used to be really good at it and now can't seem to make a tasty one. Lost my knack.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 07:17 PM

I've not had it in ages so I don't know how I am at it!
And I'm not counting the general hospital spag bol because that was just weird

nonperson 19-06-2020 07:24 PM

I don't imagine that was anything like spag bol at all!

I think what happens is that I don't do it very often so I make it different each time and don't follow a recipe or anything!

Alison will have to tell us her method =)

nonperson 19-06-2020 07:25 PM

I just dropped my phone and cracked the new screen protector that I only put on yesterday! Waah.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 07:29 PM

It wasn't! The bol part was really oily and the spag part had mostly dried out. Not great!

Oh no! At least it wasn't the actual screen though!

tamobhuuta 19-06-2020 07:38 PM

I have quorn in bolognese, it's just as good as meat imo.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 07:44 PM

I sometimes prefer quorn

nonperson 19-06-2020 07:49 PM

Eww that sounds grim, Beckie.

The screen is already cracked underneath so I'm not entirely sure why I'm bothering with a protector! Suppose it will stop it getting worse.

I'm not convinced by Quorn mince yet.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 08:16 PM

It was pretty grim!

Oh that's not good! It will prevent it getting worse though!

nonperson 19-06-2020 08:24 PM

Considering how often I drop it!

I'm watching Ralph Breaks The Internet =)

The Worst Witch 19-06-2020 08:27 PM

V and I (whoever is making it) put a beef stock pot in ours. We ran out and couldn’t get any for a couple of weeks and it did taste horrible.

I hope you all enjoy your dinners!

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 08:28 PM

I drop my phone lots too but my case is rubber and goes round the side a bit so it just kind of bounces!

Great film choice!

nonperson 19-06-2020 08:31 PM

Maybe I need a more rubbery case...

It is. There's a chance it might make me cry though but hey ho.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 08:35 PM

Ninja post Alison! So beef stock pot is the key!

Awww np!

not_so_insig 19-06-2020 08:35 PM

Anyone watching Corrie? They just made an reference to Hyacinth Bucket in it. Made my day.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 08:55 PM

I don't like corrie

nonperson 19-06-2020 09:03 PM

Ooh beef stock pot.

Never watched Corrie. Glad it made your day though, Dawn.

The soup I just ate has made me really warm!

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 09:13 PM

Good warm or too hot warm?

not_so_insig 19-06-2020 09:13 PM

Anyone like Come Dine with me? I am watching tonight's episode and they showed an local lager beer towel in the background even though it's from Hertfordshire.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 09:15 PM

Can't stand come dine with me

not_so_insig 19-06-2020 09:17 PM

Is there any telly you like Beckie?

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 09:21 PM

I actually like a lot of things!
Emergency services documentaries, a lot of comedy programmes on Dave, border security, most programmes on E4 like big bang theory and the goldbergs. Holby and casualty. Probably more!
I just don't like most soaps or reality shows

tamobhuuta 19-06-2020 09:45 PM

I used to love holby and casualty but can't follow them so iatch doctors instead. But they have finished for the summer :(

nonperson 19-06-2020 09:47 PM

Soup made me too hot! Back to normal temperature now. Phew.

I kinda like the Goldbergs too. Only pick up the odd episode every now and then though.

I can't stand any reality shows. I watch TV to escape reality, not to watch morons on!

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 09:51 PM

Yeah I don't watch it religiously.

Exactly np!

The Worst Witch 19-06-2020 10:10 PM

My spag bol was nice :). So glad I managed to get stock pots again. Although still no frosties, not even the own brand ones :(.

V and I have just started watching OITNB. I did watch a few episodes before I met her, but stopped watching it for ages. We also finished the big bang theory a couple of weeks ago. Tbf, we watch mostly crime shows - our favourite being snapped which is about women who murder.

Cacoethes 19-06-2020 10:40 PM

Glad it was nice :)
Shame about the frosties though

I love OITNB! So good.
I like crime shows too

The Worst Witch 19-06-2020 10:47 PM

We tend to watch real life ones - she’s changed her degree now, but when I first met her V wanted to be a criminologist. Its weird because I used to hate crime shows (too scary) but now I watch them without any trouble amd she watches stuff she’d never dream of watching usually. The most recent example was the IT Crowd, she thought she’d hate it and she loved it haha.

I’m hoping the frosties strike will end soon! L is coming food shopping this week so I’ll get to see him too. Apparently the tantrum he had last week when he couldn’t see “his Alsin” was not worth the hour of peace his mum got leaving him at home lol

chinahorse 20-06-2020 12:14 AM

How strange that theres a shortage of frosties! Hope you get some soon.

I am hungry. The ward has no other veggie food now I've eaten the egg sarnie.

The Worst Witch 20-06-2020 09:17 AM

Morning guys

chinahorse 20-06-2020 09:18 AM

Morning, hope you had a good sleep.

Cacoethes 20-06-2020 10:31 AM

Morning everyone

Hope you all have a good day!
