Do they still do that dark pink coloured Fanta?

nonperson 25-05-2020 03:53 PM

Oh my goodness, Asda was horrific. The world outside is horrific... People parked on the verges because the car parks are full.

So glad to be safe at home again but I'm so angry. >.<

one_step_closer 25-05-2020 04:18 PM

That sounds like hell NP. Can you find ways to relax now you're home? Did you get your shopping done?

nonperson 25-05-2020 04:54 PM

I did get it done. Did miss a few things off entirely though because the queues for the tills were coming up those aisles.

I'm watching Disney now and trying to forget. I want to contact Asda and complain but it seems they're only accepting phone calls at the moment. =(

Cacoethes 25-05-2020 05:41 PM

That sounds awful np
I'm sorry it was so bad
Watching Disney is a good plan

I've ordered KFC.

OMG Beckie I'm so jealous!

Cacoethes 25-05-2020 06:27 PM

It came in like 15 minutes!
Very impressed
Was soooo tasty
But now my room smells of KFC!

nonperson 25-05-2020 06:34 PM

Mmm, gotta love that KFC smell though. =)

Cacoethes 25-05-2020 06:47 PM

It does smell good!

The Worst Witch 25-05-2020 07:00 PM

Hey guys

I don’t like KFC, its yucky. I’m waiting for Macdonalds to open

Cacoethes 25-05-2020 07:09 PM

Quite a few McDonald's round here have opened for drive thru and delivery.
A few of the girls here got McDonald's the other day

one_step_closer 25-05-2020 07:44 PM

Double cheeseburger. :thumbup:

not_so_insig 25-05-2020 07:52 PM

Domino's :-P

chinahorse 25-05-2020 08:31 PM

I really want a starbucks

one_step_closer 25-05-2020 09:06 PM

I've got chocolates. *shares*

Cacoethes 25-05-2020 10:11 PM

I like a big mac! Or a bacon double cheeseburger. Yummeh!

Oh I miss starbucks too! A frappuccino would have been lovely today

Yum chocolate! Thanks lindsay!

So my neighbours are starting to ignore the fact the lockdown is still going on. One had a visitor and normally I would not give a crap but it forced me into parking way too close to the blind corner so had something come round that corner during the half hour my car was there, poor Casey Junior (my car) would of got hit. Which would of had the knockon effect that I wouldnt of been able to get to work tomorrow (i work in a hospital so have no choice but to be backwards and forwards with Casey Junior every day)


I call her Casey Junior cause thats the name of the train from Dumbo and theres a scene where the train is trying to get up the hill and is like "i think i can i think i can" and i can imagine my car doing that so i named her Casey Junior

Totally with you!

I only really like Mcdonalds chips and you won't ever find me in a Starbucks! KFC and Dominos and chippy are definitely my favourite takeaways.

Great name for your car, whisper. I love Dumbo and that little train puffing up the hill! =)

The Worst Witch 26-05-2020 01:18 AM

Dominios has been open all lockdown here, I do like it but its expensive.

Its my birthday today (or it will be when RUL fices its clock)

one_step_closer 26-05-2020 11:04 AM

Happy Birthday Allison! <3

tamobhuuta 26-05-2020 11:39 AM

Happy birthday WW x

I slept so well but I'm needing coffee to wake up properly.

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 11:59 AM

Happy birthday alison!
Hope you have a good day! Or as good as you can with a lockdown birthday

whispershadow 26-05-2020 12:24 PM

Happy birthday WW, have a great day :-)

one_step_closer 26-05-2020 01:22 PM

Do you have anything planned Alison?

What's everyone else up to?

I'm heading to work again soon.

not_so_insig 26-05-2020 01:54 PM

I am waiting for my Tesco shopping order which is coming between 2 and 3 pm. I have to do some cleaning before the Tesco man comes.

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 01:57 PM

I am doing nothing
Was hoping to get to the shop but the ward is unsettled so it probably won't happen

The Worst Witch 26-05-2020 02:02 PM

Not really, will go for my usual walk with V and then she’s making ny favourite tea since we can’t go out

She bought me a huge snuggly blanket, I love it!

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 02:17 PM

Aww that's nice :)

nonperson 26-05-2020 02:29 PM

Ooh, happy birthday, Alison. =)

not_so_insig 26-05-2020 02:53 PM

Happy birthday Alison!

tamobhuuta 26-05-2020 02:57 PM

Busy day for me - phone call from my godmother soon, then hopefully a walk later.

not_so_insig 26-05-2020 04:00 PM

Blooming heck it's warm outside. I felt quite bad whilst putting my shopping away. I feel dizzy now.

The Worst Witch 26-05-2020 04:37 PM

Thank you everybody :)

Its really warm here so V and I went for a walk along the river, it was nice. She bought me myfavourite chocolates too, win! They’ll be gone by tomorrow lol

one_step_closer 26-05-2020 04:40 PM

It's warm here but with a breeze. Although I could have done without wearing my zipper when I went out.

People who make chocolates last are not human!

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 05:19 PM

I've just been out to the shop
It's quite warm but not TOO warm

chinahorse 26-05-2020 05:22 PM

Just been fit tested for a proper FFP3 mask. What a strange hot suffocating experience.

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 05:50 PM

That doesn't sound pleasant Lillie

chinahorse 26-05-2020 06:04 PM

You wear the mask and then a hood that looks like something for bee keepers. Thwn they spray stuff into the hood and you do various movements and read out loud etc. Then eventually you have to take the mask off in the hood still. I didnt believe he was actually spraying anything until that point.

nonperson 26-05-2020 06:17 PM

I have to wear those masks too and we luckily got fit tested without the giant hood thing. Dunno how they did it though, they must have been measuring something. I had to do exercises like going up and down a little foot stool, felt so silly. Did the spray stuff taste really bitter?

chinahorse 26-05-2020 06:18 PM

Yeah, its sweetener apparently.

chinahorse 26-05-2020 06:19 PM

Possibly why when we did the first sensitivity test I could only just smell it and not taste it. The second sensitivity test after all the exercises etc holy crap the taste was hideous.

No steps for us but bending at the waist repeatedly while holding the hood on was a definite highlight.

nonperson 26-05-2020 06:25 PM

I've heard it tastes really bad!

Do you have to wear the face masks all the time at work?

chinahorse 26-05-2020 08:27 PM

When treating patients yeah. So that will be fun as it was horrid and sweaty and unbearably hot after just 8 minutes and I was wearing a maxi dress and sandals. I don't want to think what the mask, visor, scrubs, gloves and long sleeved gown will be like.

Cacoethes 26-05-2020 08:27 PM

That sounds horrific tbh

tamobhuuta 26-05-2020 09:34 PM

So glad my life doesn't include unpleasant safety equipment!

I did go for a walk. It was really hot and my mum insisted on trying to get me not to slump.

whispershadow 26-05-2020 10:06 PM

its too hot here :-(

chinahorse 26-05-2020 11:32 PM

I feel ya on that one whisper, itsabout a bajillion degrees in my flat. Well the thermostat in the living room says 24.

tamobhuuta 27-05-2020 12:12 PM

I had my air-cooler on all night.

one_step_closer 27-05-2020 12:12 PM

Morning everyone, how are you all today?
