How was it insig?

I went into town to get my glasses.

one_step_closer 13-10-2021 03:23 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Did you enjoy your swim Dawn?

What do your glasses look like Tamo?

(I've seen yours on Fb Dawn, I like them).

Where have you disappeared to Beckie?

not_so_insig 13-10-2021 04:11 PM

Yes I enjoyed my swim thanks Lindsay.

nonperson 13-10-2021 06:33 PM

Evening all. How's everyone doing?

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 07:56 PM

Helloooo everyone!

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:13 PM


Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:27 PM

I totally typed it in Mrs Doubtfires voice :p

I saw 6 GROUPS of joggers on the way home. And that was just on the road leading to mine!

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:29 PM

Well how else would that word be read/typed/said?! =D

Joggers are bastards. They're all out earlier now because it gets dark and cold earlier.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:41 PM


They are *nearly* as bad as the lycra tw*ts on bikes

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:47 PM

Oh don't ****ing get me started on them.

It's either joggers with earphones in so they can't hear when a car is driving right behind them and can't get past on the single lane road... or cyclists in big groups that feel like they're more entitled than me to take up space on the road than anyone else. Bastards.


How was work?

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:49 PM

Yes exactly!
Why do people suck so much?!

Work was incredibly quiet!
So the day went super slowly.
How about you?

nonperson 13-10-2021 09:00 PM

People = ****

I mean you guys here don't count obviously. My friend was talking to me today about how I don't "put myself out there" when it comes to friendships...

Ugh it's rubbish when days go slowly but it makes for an easier day. I still had no supervisor so it was a more chilled day but I have two days on my own now so that sucks.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 09:04 PM

Very true!

Making friends as an adult is really hard!

That's true.
It was definitely easier!
Being alone at work does suck
Especially when it's quiet because you kind of just have to stand there awkwardly with no one to talk to!

nonperson 13-10-2021 09:13 PM

Making friends has always been hard...!

Yeah I mean at least I don't have to stand still and wait around for work to come to me... I have plenty to get on with but it's hard to motivate myself. People sometimes pop in for a chat but it has to be brief really. It sucks because there are some cool people that I can actually talk to fairly easily but they're out working in the garden most of the time so it's only fleeting conversations!

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 09:17 PM


Finding motivation can be so difficult.

nonperson 13-10-2021 09:37 PM

Sometimes having a massive long list of jobs doesn't help with motivation, but sometimes it does. It's weird.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 09:44 PM

Yeah I get that
I like to cross things off lists.
It's very satisfying

nonperson 13-10-2021 09:48 PM

It is really satisfying.

I have a white board with jobs and a diary of daily lists and don't seem to be able to cross any of it off lately!

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 09:55 PM

That must be so frustrating!

nonperson 13-10-2021 09:56 PM

Some of it is more of a "wishlist" of jobs to achieve than an actual list of things that need doing, heh.

Kinda wish I was in a bigger team sometimes.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 10:02 PM

I suppose that's not *too* bad

Yeah. I find being in a bigger team a lot better

I'm off to bed now!
Got to get up a bit earlier so I can go to asda before work tomorrow
Nighty night!

nonperson 13-10-2021 10:06 PM

Sleep well. =)

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 09:56 AM

Morning everyone!
I'm too tired to go to asda
Will have to go on Saturday!

tamobhuuta 14-10-2021 12:34 PM

No harm in that.

It's shower time again today.

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 12:52 PM

Fun times!
I also need to shower after work. Boo

one_step_closer 14-10-2021 02:18 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope you feel less tired on Saturday so you can go to Asda, Beckie. Will you be off work so have plenty of time?

No shower for me thankfully! Although I admit I rarely shower I usually just wash my hair every couple of days. I hope your shower is ok Tamo.

tamobhuuta 14-10-2021 03:05 PM

It was ok thanks osc. How are you?

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 04:53 PM

Hey lindsay!

Thanks. I will probably go and see the fam on Saturday but will be able to go afterwards. I'm not at work this weekend!

I got to leave early today :-D

How is everyone? Anyone been up to much?

one_step_closer 14-10-2021 05:53 PM

I'm glad your shower was ok Tamo. I'm just my usual. How are you?

Weekend off and spending time with your family sounds great Beckie. And getting home early today just tops it off!

I finished a book so hoping I can get into another one.

Nearly dinner time anyone?

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 06:06 PM

It does indeed lindsay!
I am in at 10:30am tomorrow though.
I dislike setting up the bar. And litter picking the garden!

Was it a good book?

one_step_closer 14-10-2021 06:08 PM

I guess there are always good parts and bad parts in any job.

I rated the book 4 stars (really liked it) but it was also a bit confusing with lots of characters and time changes.

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 06:13 PM

Very true

Ah I can see why that would be confusing!
I'm glad you enjoyed it though!

tamobhuuta 14-10-2021 06:45 PM

I've been binging HP I've almost finished Prisoner of Azkaban.

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 06:48 PM

Always a good choice!

I have showered

nonperson 14-10-2021 06:57 PM

Evening all you clean and showered people, and also the unshowered people.

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 06:58 PM

Hey np!
How are you?

nonperson 14-10-2021 07:05 PM

Hey Beckie. I'm tired and weird. But got to see my old dog today so that was nice. How're you?

The Worst Witch 14-10-2021 07:09 PM

Hello all showered and non showered people :)

I can't decide what I want for tea. Any suggestions? I made pizza with the kids today and was gonna take home leftovers but they ate all my cheese! :O

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 07:12 PM

Aww that's nice np

I'm ok thanks!
Just watching a bit of QI.
I tried watching squid game but I found it boring

Hey Alison!
Nice to see you!
Have you got much in?

nonperson 14-10-2021 07:15 PM

Hi Alison. =)

I was going to suggest pasta but that might need cheese too?

The Worst Witch 14-10-2021 07:16 PM

Thank you :)

No, I need to do a food shop tomorrow, was too tired after placement today. I think I might have soup somewhere, that might be a shout.

The Worst Witch 14-10-2021 07:17 PM

Also, Beckie, do not mention squid game unless you want a big long rant about why it is everything wrong woth this world

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 07:23 PM

Soup is good!
What kind of soup?

I just don't get the hype!
It's basically a boring Battle Royale

nonperson 14-10-2021 07:28 PM

Soup is always a good shout!

The Worst Witch 14-10-2021 07:31 PM

I've had to stop the older children (primary school age) from playing it in the playground and letters have gone out to parents across the region saying how inappropriate it is to let your kids watch it. Wtf?! I get I might be uncool, but why would you let your primary school aged child watch it at all?!

Soup is good, especially since its cold today. I might have to dig out my hand warmers and gloves soon

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 07:32 PM

No that's really wrong!
Should absolutely NOT be being watched by kids!

I've put my heating on for a bit!
Only the second time this season so far!

nonperson 14-10-2021 08:12 PM

I feel like someone was telling me about these squid games recently... but can't remember who or why.

I've put my heating on too, I'm really cold this evening. =/

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 08:21 PM

Squid game seems to be the new Tiger King.
As in, EVERYONE is watching it and recommending it.
I only put it on because people at work were raving about it but it's meh.

It does seem to be very cold tonight!

nonperson 14-10-2021 08:26 PM

Ah I see. I've never seen Tiger King... FOMO doesn't seem to work on me, lol.

Cacoethes 14-10-2021 08:28 PM

I didn't really rate tiger king either tbh
Maybe I'm just old D:
