Maybe I'll watch it this weekend.

That's what catch-up is for =)

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 10:19 AM


Morning everyone!
Had a bit of a lie in this morning!

tamobhuuta 08-10-2021 12:11 PM

Lie ins are good. Do you have any plans?

I got up 15mins early! Today is just a normal day.

one_step_closer 08-10-2021 01:31 PM

Did your lie in make you feel more refreshed, Beckie? I hope work is going well.

Was it a 15 minutes where you know you'd just lie in bed awake so you just got up Tamo?

What's a normal day for you?

I got soaked going to pick up my prescription.

tamobhuuta 08-10-2021 02:30 PM

I woke at 8.45 and went back to sleep then woke up again at 9.45 and decided I might as well get up.

Sorry you got so wet osc!

tamobhuuta 08-10-2021 04:35 PM

Just had a very frustrating call with my CPN!
How's everyone else?

one_step_closer 08-10-2021 04:37 PM

Calls are awful in general. Sorry your call left you feeling frustrated. What are you going to do with the rest of your day?

tamobhuuta 08-10-2021 05:00 PM

Stay distracted, probably with TV and wordsearches, they work best.

What are you up to?

nonperson 08-10-2021 06:35 PM

It's the weeeekend =D

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 07:50 PM

It is indeed np!!!

I got home to a big box from moonpig
It had a balloon, prosecco and Thorntons chocolates in!
It was from my auntie, uncle and cousins!

nonperson 08-10-2021 08:34 PM

Ooooh nice! I didn't know moonpig did boxes of stuff.

Let the birthday celebrations commence =P

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 08:36 PM

Neither did I!


nonperson 08-10-2021 08:39 PM

And what will those celebrations consist of?

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 08:53 PM

Seeing the fam during the day and pub in the evening with the bestie who has come for the weekend!
We have just ordered takeaway!

nonperson 08-10-2021 08:57 PM

Ooh excellent celebrations then!

What takeaway?

I've just cooked a very questionable lasagne...

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 09:21 PM


It's a peri peri chicken place
I'm having a chicken burger with halloumi and cheesy chips!

What makes it questionable??

nonperson 08-10-2021 09:38 PM

Mmmm yum.

Too much white sauce and not much fake meat, that I didn't fry for long enough first but it's been in the oven since so should be ok? o.O

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 10:15 PM

I think that should be fine!
I'm terrible at cooking though...

nonperson 08-10-2021 10:23 PM

I'm not bad at cooking when I make the effort to do it.

But it did turn out fine. =)

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 10:27 PM

Yay that's good!

nonperson 08-10-2021 10:35 PM

Plus loooooads of leftovers.

Cacoethes 08-10-2021 10:55 PM

Some for tomorrow then!

nonperson 08-10-2021 11:04 PM

And the rest of the weekend! XD

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 09:02 AM


Morning everyone!
I am 30!

nonperson 09-10-2021 11:23 AM

Happy birthday!

I think I heard that life was meant to begin at 30. ;-)

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 11:27 AM

Thank you! :-D

Haha! Hope so :p

nonperson 09-10-2021 11:46 AM

Start your 30s as you mean to go on!

tamobhuuta 09-10-2021 11:47 AM

Congratulations Cacoethes! I felt so old when I turned 30.

I was planning on going to Confession but didn't set an alarm :(

nonperson 09-10-2021 11:52 AM

I think 30 always seems like a big deal but actually I felt like it was the turning point of not caring what the number says. Then again, 30 was quite some time ago so I may have forgotten my actual feelings towards it. XD

Oh no, tamo! When can you go next?

tamobhuuta 09-10-2021 11:57 AM

Friday morning.

How are you?

nonperson 09-10-2021 12:19 PM

Ah a bit of a wait then. =/

I'm alright... just had a very late breakfast.

What will you do with the rest of your day?

tamobhuuta 09-10-2021 12:30 PM

Anything good for breakfast? I had a pancake, very tastey. My big sister is coming round later so I want to be dressed for that.

What does your day look like?

nonperson 09-10-2021 12:39 PM

Mmm pancakes are always good. I just had boring and slightly burnt toast and jam!

I should get showered and dressed too and do dull chores like wash and change bedding. It's going to be a quiet day. And I don't even need to go out food shopping tonight either.

one_step_closer 09-10-2021 01:16 PM

As people always ask - do you feel any different being a year older? I hope you enjoy your day with your family and friend.

Mmm, pancake for breakfast. I'm too lazy in the morning to make things like that. I usually just have cereal. I hope you have a nice visit with your big sister.

Is a quiet day ok for you NP?

I've just washed my hair and need to hoover which I'll do after lunch.

nonperson 09-10-2021 01:26 PM

I get that question every year from my dad, followed by "You're catching me up, lol"... *eye roll*

Yeah a quiet day is good, I think. I'm still catching up from too much peopling and doing things last month so quiet is much needed.

What's for lunch?

one_step_closer 09-10-2021 02:41 PM

I hope you have a nice relaxed people-less day then.

I had a ham and cheese toastie for lunch. Have you had your lunch yet?

tamobhuuta 09-10-2021 03:30 PM

I had soup, one of my favourites. Toasties are also yum.

nonperson 09-10-2021 04:07 PM

Toasties are so good. Kinda wishing I'd done one for my lunch. I've decided on cheese filled jacket potatoes but they're taking ages to make!

tamobhuuta 09-10-2021 04:47 PM

Even better with baked beans.

one_step_closer 09-10-2021 05:01 PM

I've gone off beans and cheese with baked potatoes, I prefer them just with cheese.

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 05:30 PM

Hey guys!
I'm back from the fam's!

one_step_closer 09-10-2021 05:46 PM

Did you have a nice time?

nonperson 09-10-2021 05:59 PM

My cheese filled potato skins were awesome eventually and I'm highly amused that they came out pink because I used special red cheese, haha. XD

Hi Beckie. =)

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 06:06 PM

They sound delicious!


nonperson 09-10-2021 06:50 PM

When're you off to the pub?

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 07:34 PM

Here now!
We have 4 cocktails to get through!
Espresso martini and pink gin martini!
2 for 1 deal lol!

nonperson 09-10-2021 07:50 PM

You can't blame it on the deal. XD

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 08:52 PM

Now have frozen daiquiris!
And pink gin spritzs.
And I had a chambord royale!

nonperson 09-10-2021 09:39 PM

I have absolutely no idea what those things are.

I've heard of daiquiris but don't know what they are, and gin, obviously.

Cacoethes 09-10-2021 09:47 PM

I don't know what they are either!

I have a gin berry fizz now!
