Morning all. Weather update: it was hot again here last night but not as bad as it could have been.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 11:31 AM

It's a bit chilly today which I am thankful for!
I am wearing a cardigan out!!!
And also standing in a very long queue at asda to top up my gas and electric!

tamobhuuta 14-08-2020 11:39 AM

Fun times, well done for getting out. I might be going to Costa again, my turn to buy.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 12:05 PM

Thanks! I am home now

Mmm costa!

nonperson 14-08-2020 01:05 PM

I've taken a last minute half day off work today so am home now. Might venture to Asda this afternoon... Dunno how busy it'll be. =/

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 01:13 PM

Asda was pretty busy this morning
Hope it's ok for you!

nonperson 14-08-2020 01:24 PM

Think I'd rather get it out of the way rather than drag myself out again this evening or tomorrow when it's definitely quiet.

The google popular times thing says it's a little busy right now and dips a tiny bit at 3ish.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 01:39 PM

Yeah probably best to get it out of the way!
Good luck on your quest! Hope you get something yummy!

nonperson 14-08-2020 01:50 PM

Ice lollies are on the list. =)

And pizza.

And I'll probably add a few more tasty goodies as I go along.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 01:59 PM

Oooo nice!

nonperson 14-08-2020 02:08 PM

It's a pizza sort of weekend.

I dunno what to buy for other meals though... Getting a bit bored with my usual stuff.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 02:16 PM

Have you got any recipe books laying around?
I have one slimming world one and I like to cook random things from that!

nonperson 14-08-2020 02:33 PM

I only have a student cookbook from years ago, haven't looked at that for a long long time. That's about my level of cooking though... but at the moment all I usually manage is stuff in the oven or microwave.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 02:42 PM

Student cookbook sounds good!
Should be nice and easy
I understand about oven and microwave food though

nonperson 14-08-2020 02:55 PM

I'm a bit bored of salad on the side as well.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 02:56 PM

Ew salad!
I love vegetables but not in a salad!

tamobhuuta 14-08-2020 03:03 PM

I have a student cook book that i never used until this year!

nonperson 14-08-2020 03:04 PM

By salad I just mean lettuce and tomatoes... and sometimes "five bean salad"... and croutons. And a heap of mayo. >.>

And veg is usually limited to green beans, sweetcorn and occasionally broccoli.

I'm not very adventurous.

Student cookbooks are not just for students. =)

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 03:15 PM

Yeah that type of salad is yuck to me!
And there's no point in buying mayo as I won't get through all of it before it goes off!

I have a slimming world meals for one cookbook which is very handy! Especially as I am back to slimming world now :-D

nonperson 14-08-2020 03:25 PM

Tomatoes are so good though.

I get through too much mayo. And I buy the big jars! =/

Hm, maybe I'll take a look at that book. Could be useful.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 03:35 PM

I agree tomatoes are very good!
Just not in a salad :p

It's worth a try!

nonperson 14-08-2020 03:38 PM

But they are salad! Even on their own. =P

I should really be getting myself together to go to asda...

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 03:58 PM

To me a salad is lettuce!

You said 3pm was going to be less busy so go go go!!!

nonperson 14-08-2020 04:02 PM


Cacoethes 14-08-2020 04:12 PM


tamobhuuta 14-08-2020 04:43 PM

I like mozzarella and tomato salad, if we're feeling posh we add basil leaves.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 04:44 PM

Mozzarella is so yummy!

tamobhuuta 14-08-2020 06:01 PM

L is making some this evening :)

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 06:10 PM

I'm having stir fry

tamobhuuta 14-08-2020 06:54 PM

Oh no, the cheese has gone wrong!

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 07:04 PM

Oh noooo!

It is raining

nonperson 14-08-2020 07:04 PM

Back from shopping... *collapse* x.X

How can cheese go wrong? o.o

I also like tomato and mozzerella salad, with a little pesto dressing. Yum!

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 07:19 PM

Well done np! How was it?

Mmm pesto

nonperson 14-08-2020 07:20 PM

Quite busy. =/

Wish I'd bought mozzerella now! I did get Angel Delight though. >.>

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 07:37 PM

At least it's done now!

Ooo angel delight! I am jealous!

nonperson 14-08-2020 07:43 PM

It is done.

Also think I missed a torrential rain shower while I was in there. The ground was soaked.

Need to order moulds now so I can freeze the angel delight into lollies.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 07:47 PM

It rained quite a lot here

I've never tried that!

nonperson 14-08-2020 07:55 PM

It was something my mum used to do when we were kids and I want to give it a go. Hope it's as good as I remember!

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 07:59 PM

I may have to try that one day!

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:10 PM


Can someone stop me spending more money today please x.x

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:16 PM

I wish I could but I'm in the same boat!!!

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:19 PM

Eeek, oh dear. =/

I mean, like food and cat food and flea treatment were essential purchases... but there have been some non-essential ones too. Argh.

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:20 PM

I also want to buy an Australian bush hat!

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:21 PM

I only had 1 in my account for days until today so you'd think I would have learned my lesson but nope!

EDIT: ninja post! Australian bush hats are cool

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:24 PM

Well, hope it was useful stuff at least!

I knowww. So cool. And I need a wide brimmed hat for sun protection, right? =)

Dunno if it'd suit me though and my head is annoyingly small (plus big ears and ponytail) which makes finding a normal sunhat that fits is a nightmare so...

Yeah I'm gonna stop trying to convince myself to do it now >.>

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:28 PM

Yeah it was.
And some new shoes!

Are there any shops about that you could try one on? Though I guess not many shops would have them

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:46 PM

Ooooooooooooooh new shoes. =D How often is pay day?

Nah, there's 0% chance of me going to any shop right now other than the supermarket.

It's annoying. I want one so badly but would probably look ridiculous and be way too self conscious to wear it in public anyway!

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:52 PM

Every 2 weeks and every month. But it's benefits so not a huge amount and I still have bills and stuff. I hate being an adult!

Fair enough!

Could you get one and return it if you didn't like it?

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:58 PM

At least that's fairly regularly. I used to get paid weekly so it was a big shock going to monthly pay!

Yeah probably could return it but that in itself is a stressful palaver even without masks and viruses. I'll just think about it some more. =P

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 09:04 PM

I can imagine!

That is true. I never return things because it's so much hassle!
