I love a good tajine. What's going in it so far?

nonperson 22-10-2021 04:04 PM

I have never cooked or had one before but I got a free sample of spice mix for it. Going to use mostly veg - swede, carrots, parsnip, onion, garlic... and maybe some lamb, I'm undecided about that at the moment.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:19 PM

Hello everyone!

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:23 PM

Howdy Beckie. How's your day been?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:28 PM

Busy, stressful and tiring!

How about you?

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:32 PM

At least you're not on the evening shift.

Quiet and unproductive here...

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:33 PM

Very true!

Did you have much to do today?

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:47 PM

Not particularly. Off work today so only had chores to ignore. Was going to go food shopping tonight but I think I'll give that a miss.

What're you going to be doing with your evening?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:53 PM

Fair enough!

I need to shower but I'll do that after QI
Need to find time to clean because I'm at mum's tomorrow then work on Sunday and Monday then house inspection on Tuesday
Will probably have to clean after mum's and asda tomorrow

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:59 PM

Eep, cleaning sucks. Best to do it in stages when you can. I'm sure it doesn't need to be spotless?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:01 PM

My neighbour did a clean for my birthday so it's only hoovering, a bit of mopping and some dusting. Nothing too bad!
It won't need to be spotless. They've been happy with it so far!

nonperson 22-10-2021 08:33 PM

Ah that sounds ok then. Just do the obvious bits they'll see.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:37 PM

I think that will be the plan!

I have showered!
Can't wait for bed

nonperson 22-10-2021 08:46 PM

Well done. Got an early start tomorrow?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:53 PM


Not really.
I can get to mum's whenever.
I'll have to check bus times. They keep changing!

Have you got anything planned for tomorrow?

nonperson 22-10-2021 09:04 PM

Ah that's good. Takes the pressure off when there's no specific arrival time.

Nope, no plans. Might try to do food shop early in the morning if I can.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 09:16 PM

Indeed it does

Sounds good

I think I'm going to head off to bed early
So so tired

nonperson 22-10-2021 09:25 PM

Sleep well. Enjoy tomorrow =)

Cacoethes 23-10-2021 09:39 AM

Thanks np

Morning guys

nonperson 23-10-2021 12:08 PM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 01:07 PM

Hi both, how are you?

one_step_closer 23-10-2021 01:27 PM

Hi everyone, I hope you have a good day. How are you all?

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 01:59 PM

Hi osc :) I am ok, how are you? Any plans?

one_step_closer 23-10-2021 04:49 PM

I'm still struggling, I've spent most of the day just staring into space. I did go for my prescription as usual though and washed my hair.

How is your day going?

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 05:01 PM

Can I send you a virtual hug? Well done for getting out, and for having a shower, I know how hard those can be.

I've just been watching YouTube comedy clips. I might try reading next.

Cacoethes 23-10-2021 08:21 PM

Hey guys

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 09:53 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 24-10-2021 10:39 AM

Morning Beckie and all. How are you?

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 10:44 AM

Hey np

I am really dreading work today!
Alas, I must go

How are you?

nonperson 24-10-2021 10:53 AM

Alas... What hours are you doing today?

I'm a bit meh...

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 11:09 AM

When it's busiest because of the sunday roasts

Sorry to hear that
Do you have much planned today or can you just chill?

nonperson 24-10-2021 11:13 AM

That sucks. Maybe being busy will make the time fly by? Remember to ask for help if you need it.

Nah nothing except chores to do today. Currently watching the gymnastics world championships.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 11:23 AM

I hope so!
I will.
There should be quite a few of us on the bar because of how busy it gets.
There are 4 main jobs: serving, making drinks for the restaurant, collecting, washing and putting out glasses and clearing the bar.
It's hard to balance them on busy days.

I hope you don't have too much to do!
Sounds good!
Gymnasts are amazing

nonperson 24-10-2021 11:29 AM

Ah that's good there will be a few of you. Do you have to do all of that or do you assign specific jobs to certain people?

I've got nothing urgent to do, not at work tomorrow so don't need to wash uniform today. Although I suppose the kitchen is getting kind of urgent. I don't have any clean cutlery or plates... =|

Gymnasts are very cool. So fearless. I was never like that, I guess that's why I wasn't a very good gymnast!

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 11:36 AM

We have to do it all
Just depends who is kind of free at whatever time

Oh no! You definitely need cutlery and plates!

Jasmine used to do gymnastics. She won a trophy for it once!
But she grew out of it and prefers other things now!

nonperson 24-10-2021 11:39 AM

I suppose it's best when you find a way to work together seamlessly.

I do kind of need those things...! Just cba to do anything about it...

Ooh well done her! It's good she gave it a go even if she didn't stick with it. Doesn't suit everyone.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 11:53 AM

It's all a bit chaotic most of the time!

I know the feeling
I force myself to wash up as soon as I'm done using them because otherwise the sink would be full!

She enjoyed it at the time but grew out of it.
She just does dance and horse riding now

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 12:13 PM

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 12:14 PM

Hi tamo
How are you?

I'm leaving for work now
Wish me luck!

nonperson 24-10-2021 12:19 PM

Morning Tamo. How're you?

Good luck Beckie!

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 12:28 PM

Good luck Cacoethes!

I am ok. I went to bed early and slept really well. How are you? Any plans?

nonperson 24-10-2021 12:59 PM

Good to hear you slept well.

I'm a bit meh, tired, should shower, no plans other than watching the gymnastics... How about you?

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 01:59 PM

Is the gymnastics on the TV?

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 02:00 PM

I'm going to Mass this evening.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 02:02 PM

I hope you have a good shift Beckie.

Having a good sleep is such a great feeling! Will you be doing much today?

I'm sorry you're feeling meh NP. Does anything help at all? Maybe if you start something you'll get into a rhythm. Of course lots of breaks are needed too if it doesn't put you off. Maybe you can have a break when you've finished the things you need to do. I know it's hard.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 02:02 PM

What time is Mass Tamo?

nonperson 24-10-2021 02:17 PM

The gym is only on iPlayer I think, Tamo.

Thanks Lindsay. I know just starting something would help. I want to make tagine for dinner tonight so maybe that will be enough incentive to get the kitchen tidied in preparation... Going to start with a shower and some lunch first.

How're you?

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 02:29 PM

Afternoon all. Tesco's website is down has been for over 24 hours. People are mostly getting their orders according to the Internet. Just can't amend or change slot as which is a tad annoying because I want to change my slot. Fortunately I have nearly everything for the week added.

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 02:29 PM

Thanks np, I might give it a go. I really enjoyed the gymnastics in the Olympics.

Osc, Mass is at 5pm in Italian. How are you?

nonperson 24-10-2021 03:49 PM

Why do they do it in Italian?
