It's a 10 minute walk which is good but there is always a queue. I wonder if that will be reduced now that it's 'freedom day'.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 12:18 PM

That's not too bad
Hopefully there won't be a queue!

Ugh. Freedom day. I do not agree with it

[Luna] 19-07-2021 12:25 PM

Yes scary times. I hope and pray this doesn't lead to a fourth lockdown.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 12:31 PM

That would be awful
But it probably will. Unless BoJo just decides to plough on regardless which wouldn't surprise me

[Luna] 19-07-2021 12:34 PM

Honestly wouldn't surprise me if we just have push through from now on... but it's Boris' so who the **** knows??

not_so_insig 19-07-2021 12:35 PM

In Wales we still have to wear a mask except in pubs and restaurants. All other indoor settings such as shops, hospitals and public transport you have to. Even if you're going to England to Wales or start in Wales but going to England.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 12:37 PM

Boris could do one of his miraculous U turns

not_so_insig 19-07-2021 12:41 PM

That's from August 7th as it's still a requirement to wear one now in all situations.

[Luna] 19-07-2021 01:28 PM

Well, I'm off out to face the heat. wish me luck...

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 01:34 PM

Good luck!

nonperson 19-07-2021 02:17 PM

It's not really the wearing of masks that's the issue, Dawn. Other than the self isolation rules we pretty much have no guidance to follow. Everything is reopening and it's down to businesses to decide on capacities and face masks and stuff. And a this despite cases and deaths going up. Masks not being compulsory any more is only a small part of that.

nonperson 19-07-2021 02:20 PM

And good luck, Luna!

There seems to be a small breeze and some cloud coming over now.

[Luna] 19-07-2021 02:40 PM

Thank you. Luckily I got in the queue when it was still in the air conditioned post office rather than standing outside - always a win.

Back home with my army of fans lol

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 02:42 PM

That's good Luna! Well done!

I've just booked a ticket to see the croods 2 on Thursday (to avoid my letting agent who is doing a house inspection)

[Luna] 19-07-2021 02:44 PM

Ah nice, that sounds like a nice little trip out. I miss the cinema. You gonna get popcorn?

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 02:46 PM

Yep! I've missed it too.
And yes I will be getting popcorn! :-D

[Luna] 19-07-2021 02:48 PM

Yaay, can't beat cinema popcorn. Yum!

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 02:56 PM

There is no popcorn like cinema popcorn!

nonperson 19-07-2021 04:00 PM

Sweet or salty though?

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 04:05 PM


nonperson 19-07-2021 04:06 PM

It has to be. =)

Tesco's finest popcorn is pretty good. I got a mango and chilli (I think?) one from there once. So sweet!

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 04:24 PM

Oooh that sounds interesting!

nonperson 19-07-2021 06:07 PM

I don't think they do it any more. It was mango and Chilli with coconut bits.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 06:17 PM

That sounds yummy!

nonperson 19-07-2021 06:36 PM

It really really was! So sweet, the chilli level was just right. Easily ate the entire bag in one go =P

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 06:42 PM

Well how else do you eat popcorn?! :tongue2:

nonperson 19-07-2021 06:52 PM

Exactly! But they still like to put a portion size on the bag, like 12 servings or something.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 07:02 PM

It's ridiculous really
They KNOW we're going to eat the entire thing so why mess about with portion sizes?!
It's like on chocolate bars and they say 1 serving = 3 pieces. Please!

not_so_insig 19-07-2021 07:50 PM

I hate it when they say something is share size. I ain't sharing my chocolate with nobody.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 07:55 PM

Exactly Dawn!

[Luna] 19-07-2021 11:27 PM

Amen to that Dawn!!

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 11:10 AM

Morning everyone!
Another hot one today. Ugh!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 11:23 AM

Morning Beckie, it sure is!
What are your plans today? is it today you're off to the cinema?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 11:35 AM

My only plans were asda and post my brother's birthday cards and I've done that!
No that's Thursday.

What are you up to today Luna?

[Luna] 20-07-2021 11:50 AM

Not much. Trying to work through the things I didn't do yesterday but the heat is making me feel very unmotivated.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 11:56 AM

The heat is awful!
All you can really do in this heat is collapse in front of a fan!

tamobhuuta 20-07-2021 12:15 PM

Maxi dress day again.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 12:20 PM

Good plan tamo!

My phone is warning of thunderstorms.
I really hope we get one!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 12:30 PM

Definitely going to see how productive I can be on the sofa lying in front of the fan haha

[Luna] 20-07-2021 12:31 PM

Fingers crossed for some angry clouds

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 12:31 PM

Haha! Don't blame you!

Yess definitely need some angry clouds.
The air needs to clear!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 02:31 PM

My brain is glitching today. Cannot focus at all.
How are you guys getting on?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 02:36 PM

That sucks
I hope you're taking lots of breaks!.

I'm just applying for more jobs
Though I'm running out of options!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 03:21 PM

Urgh job application take so long to fill out. What sort of things are you applying for?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 03:29 PM

They really do!
I'm applying for everything! Apart from care jobs because criminal record.
So mainly shops and restaurants.
I really really want to work!

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 05:13 PM

I have had my tesco shopping order. One 1 substitution which was acceptable. Took me an hour to put everything away because of the heat.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 05:13 PM

Tesco didn't have my ice cream yesterday.
I was displeased

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 05:19 PM

Did they substitute it Beckie? They had mine.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 05:30 PM


not_so_insig 20-07-2021 05:40 PM

Oh that sucks. You definitely need ice cream in this weather.
