Cacoethes 20-02-2021 06:22 PM

Oh no! That's not good :/

Good thanks

nonperson 20-02-2021 06:32 PM

One of the strings is frayed so it won't go up and down properly. And it gave up opening and closing a while ago so I guess I'll be in darkness until I fix it. =P

Was it a low energy sort of day?

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 06:52 PM

Is it easily fixable?

Yeah we just chilled and played some mario kart and did some bedroom makeover tidying preparation!

nonperson 20-02-2021 07:06 PM

Well, it's fixable, I'm not sure how easy it will be. Apparently I can use a lighter to join together the old and new strings where it's frayed. o.O And replacement tilt mechanisms seem to be a thing too so I shall look into that.

Ooh, bedroom makeover sounds exciting.

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 07:17 PM

Fingers crossed it's an easy thing to do!

Yep! She has new paint and bedroom furniture.
The pink was babyish apparently

nonperson 20-02-2021 08:41 PM

Back from food shop. *thumbs up*

What adult colour has she chosen then? =)

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 08:45 PM

Yaaay! Well done!

It's kind of a bluey purple. It's nice!

nonperson 20-02-2021 08:49 PM

Ooh that does sound nice actually.

I need to paint my bedroom. There are swatches on the wall that have been there for years...

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 08:54 PM

Hopefully she'll like it when it's on the wall!

What colour?

nonperson 20-02-2021 08:57 PM

Well the swatches are all various shades of grey because the room was originally going to be the "man cave"... but I'll probably go for a fresh sort of green.

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:03 PM

Sounds good!
I've never actually painted a room but it looks fun

nonperson 20-02-2021 09:12 PM

I painted my living room and did a stencil on the chimney breast. Did the first coat of the bathroom and got bored... so the ex tried to finish it but he left it patchy so that needs re-doing really (really annoys me every time I use the toilet in there, lol)

It is fun, a bit messy... but like most things at the moment, more effort than it should be =/

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:17 PM

I think I'd be annoyed with that too!

Yeah things are a lot of effort.
I really need to tidy the living room but blah

nonperson 20-02-2021 09:20 PM

He did the edges really thickly for some reason so you can see it outlining every wall, round the ceiling, round the mirror, round the door... gah! My fault for being lazy and not finishing it though I suppose.

Ugh, tidying. Will it take long to do?

My living room isn't too bad, just a crap load of plants everywhere. But the kitchen is full of giant boxes of cardboard at the moment that I really need to put outside. And I can't see the kitchen table for all the various stuff dumped on it. =P

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:23 PM

That sounds super annoying!

No, not at all. It's just finding space for it and actually DOING it.

I have like 4 big amazon boxes in my living room that I need to rip up.

I used to have a big dining room table and it was also definitely used as a dumping ground! :p

nonperson 20-02-2021 09:29 PM

Maybe we should make a tidying pact for tomorrow then!

I honestly don't know why I have a kitchen table, it never gets used when there's just me here now. And it didn't really before either... o.O It was from the ex's family so the more I cover it up the better! XD

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:32 PM

Sounds like a plan!

Haha! Have you thought about getting rid of it?

nonperson 20-02-2021 09:35 PM

Alright, tidying is the plan for tomorrow then.

Yes but that is also effort! And it's kinda useful to "put things on".

I kinda want to list what's on it because it is all so random XD

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:46 PM

Sounds good!

True!
And yes I can imagine it is useful!

I want to know what's on it!

nonperson 20-02-2021 09:55 PM

Ok...

I dunno where to start...

Batteries
Sharps bin
Amazon parcel that I never opened that contains a net for the pond
A book I need to return to my supervisor that I've had over a year
Various hats and gloves
Face masks
Two pumpkins
A peace lily
My new housing contract that I should probably look at...
Various pay slips and mail that is probably important
A misting bottle
A cheese lid that came with my birthday hamper
Secateurs
Work trousers that were the wrong thing that I never returned
Lots of boxes of seeds that I've collected over the years and done nothing with
Sea glass and stones from my trip to Falmouth years ago
No More Nails glue gun thing
Catfood
Box of latex gloves
And a box of unused plant pots
My work bag
Empty fruit bowl
Bubble wrap


And I think there's some more stuff underneath but I can't be arsed to rummage and disturb everything else.

I don't know whether to be amused or ashamed by that list!

Cacoethes 20-02-2021 09:59 PM

That is very random!

I'm off to bed now. Carers have just been.
Good night and sleep well!

nonperson 20-02-2021 10:01 PM

So random

Night night!

tamobhuuta 21-02-2021 10:01 AM

Hi people, anyone up yet? I woke up earlier than usual because I am anxious about my jab later.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 10:43 AM

I'm up.

nonperson 21-02-2021 10:55 AM

Me too. Been awake ish since 5:45...

Hope the jab goes well, Tamo.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 11:03 AM

5:45?!
On a Sunday?!

nonperson 21-02-2021 11:15 AM

Yeah, just... don't. My body hates me.

Went to bed around 1:30 as well...

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 11:19 AM

Ugh that suuucks

nonperson 21-02-2021 11:28 AM

S'alright. Tired is my normal state of functioning. =)

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 11:31 AM

Do people actually wake up well rested? I think it's a myth

one_step_closer 21-02-2021 11:36 AM

I hope you can settle after your jab Tamo. I hope the jab goes fine.

Waking up well rested is definitely a myth!

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 11:48 AM

Hi lindsay!

How are you?

nonperson 21-02-2021 02:55 PM

I'm cold and tired... =(

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 02:58 PM

That's not good :(
Can you nap?

nonperson 21-02-2021 03:02 PM

Maybe but I'll probably just end up sleeping all evening too.

I'm just being whiney.

tamobhuuta 21-02-2021 03:07 PM

My jab was fine and I'm not feeling any bad effects.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 03:07 PM

Ah yeah that is a danger with napping!
Have you done any tidying?

That's good tamo

nonperson 21-02-2021 03:14 PM

Glad it went ok, Tamo!

No tidying... I've showered and done some laundry though. How's your tidying going?

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 03:15 PM

That's good! Well done!

I have done my tidying :)

not_so_insig 21-02-2021 03:18 PM

Hello all. Today's is the last day of being in my 30s. I have had a shower and washed my hair. I have used a new shampoo.

tamobhuuta 21-02-2021 03:27 PM

Oooo what flavour is the shampoo? Happy returns for tomorrow!

not_so_insig 21-02-2021 03:32 PM

It's a L'Oréal one. Had it ages.

Thanks tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 03:44 PM

Sundays are so boring

tamobhuuta 21-02-2021 04:51 PM

My Sunday is pretty much the same as the rest of the week. Except I try to watch Mass online. And we have started series 2 of Once Upon a Time :)

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 04:54 PM

Are you enjoying it tamo?
I really liked once upon a time

one_step_closer 21-02-2021 05:14 PM

Well done for everyones achievements.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 05:15 PM

Thanks lindsay

What have you been up to today?

one_step_closer 21-02-2021 05:20 PM

Went to Tesco and did my usual Sunday housework. Still need to clean the cats bowls and mats once they finish their 6pm meal.

Cacoethes 21-02-2021 05:25 PM

Well done for doing those things :)

tamobhuuta 21-02-2021 08:25 PM

Well done osc.

I'm really enjoying it.
