Oh yes.

Or maybe not do best, but are the most entertaining.

Cacoethes 13-09-2021 07:44 PM

Yes probably!

I'm so tired I'm considering going to bed!

nonperson 13-09-2021 07:52 PM

Early! But if you need the sleep then there's no point forcing yourself to stay awake.

Cacoethes 13-09-2021 07:56 PM

I know!
Yes that is true.
I'll probably go to bed after would I lie to you.
It's probably because of the seizure on Sunday.
Always knocks me out for a couple of days!

nonperson 13-09-2021 08:09 PM

Understandable. You didn't have much time to rest today afterwards.

Cacoethes 13-09-2021 08:16 PM

Not really!
Right. I'm off to bed, super early!
Hopefully I will be able to rest my brain tomorrow!
Good night!

nonperson 13-09-2021 08:27 PM

Sleep well. =)

nonperson 13-09-2021 08:42 PM

Now who shall I talk to....... =|

nonperson 13-09-2021 09:27 PM

Myself. =)

nonperson 13-09-2021 09:33 PM

Hello people who are reading/watching. Come say hello!

*is not making a very creepy eyebrow expression right now...* >.>

not_so_insig 13-09-2021 10:05 PM

Hello nonperson. I have been making an inventory to what's in my freezer. Found an ice lolly and a cornetto so it's not too bad. Otherwise I have been making my bed after washing my bedding.

nonperson 13-09-2021 10:14 PM

Hi Dawn!

A cornetto is a good find!

Ugh, changing bedding is always a pain in the arse. I should do mine really.

not_so_insig 14-09-2021 07:09 AM

Yes it was a right pain to do.

Morning all. It seems that I am the first to post on this thread today.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 08:29 AM

Morning Dawn!
That's twice in a row I've been beaten to it!

How are you?

not_so_insig 14-09-2021 08:30 AM

Apart from being in some pain I am ok thanks Beckie. Are you working today?

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 08:37 AM

I hope the pain eases today Dawn!

Nope no work today!
It's pouring down with rain so it will be an inside day today!

nonperson 14-09-2021 08:53 AM

The rain is nice. I've got the back door and window open so I can listen to it.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 08:54 AM

I love listening to rain
It's so calming!

How are you this morning np?

nonperson 14-09-2021 09:01 AM

Same, it's very restful. If I don't get too cold I'll go sit on the back doorstep for a bit and watch it.

I'm tired, had a really rubbish hypo in the night so sleep was even worse than normal!

How're you?

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 09:07 AM

Sounds like a plan!

Oh no! That doesn't sound fun.
I hope you manage to get some rest today.

I'm good thanks! Definitely needed that early night last night!
I'm enjoying a self care day today!

nonperson 14-09-2021 09:35 AM

Quiet days all around then =)

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 09:49 AM

Quiet days are needed sometimes!

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:01 AM

And the rain has kinda forced it to happen. Can't strim and mow the lawn and harvesting the potatoes will have to wait.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:05 AM

Oh what a shame :tongue2:

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:26 AM

A total shame!

Kinda wanted to do the potatoes though. I could drag the bags into the dry and empty them out under the porch maybe.

Oooh then I could do stuffed jackets for dinner because that's good rainy day comfort food.

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:28 AM

Although I think they're meant to be left for a while before eating. Hm. Potato dilemmas.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:31 AM

I know absolutely nothing about growing potatoes!
But jacket potatoes are a good rainy day food
With plenty of cheese on them!

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:34 AM

I don't know anything either, this is the first time I've grown any. And having just looked up what I think is the variety I've got, they won't make good jackets! They're like long knobbly finger shaped ones...

Could just boil them and dump a load of cheese on top. =P

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:43 AM

Oh how disappointing!

But yeah, that's a good option too!
Cheese makes everything better!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 10:51 AM

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:54 AM

Hi tamo

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 11:02 AM

Any plans for today? I'm going to watch TV.

nonperson 14-09-2021 11:09 AM

Morning Tamo. How're you?

I've dragged the potato bags out of the rain (just in time as it's got really heavy now!) so I declare it to be Potato Harvest Day. And will keep everyone updated whether you all want to know or not. =P

I also topped up the bird feeders and hoped no one could see me outside in my pyjamas and welly boots. It's a good look.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 11:09 AM

Just tv for me too!
And a phone call from the universal credit people at 4.
Oh and put my washing away when its done!

What are you planning to watch today?

Ninja post np!

Well done!
Yay for potato harvest day!

Haha! Love the PJs and wellies combo!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 11:11 AM

I remember making bird feeders at school. Good luck with your potatoes.

nonperson 14-09-2021 12:01 PM

My favourite look is shorts and wellies. =P

Oh I need to do washing too.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 12:04 PM

Shorts and wellies is good too!
I used to go out in weird clothes and wellies all the time when I lived with the fam because of the horses!

My washing should be finished soon.

nonperson 14-09-2021 12:12 PM

I mow the lawn in shorts and wellies in the summer, stops my shoes getting covered in grass clippings. Totally get it when looking after horses. Practicality over fashion!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 12:16 PM

That's a good idea!

Oh yes definitely!

one_step_closer 14-09-2021 02:24 PM

I'm too self conscious to wear weird combinations of clothes. Although I do have neighbours over a tiny fence so they would see me so it would seem like the best option to dress normally. And I am 100% normal.

Do you have loads of potatoes NP?

nonperson 14-09-2021 02:57 PM

I'm also self conscious, Lindsay. I make sure no one sees me when I'm outside in weird clothes.

Haven't done the potatoes yet!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 03:02 PM

One of the managers has just given me a load of e learning to do.
Already failed the covid safety one (by one question because I hit the wrong button!!!)

nonperson 14-09-2021 03:16 PM

Can you retake it?

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 03:49 PM

Yeah just I've just done it!
I epically failed the 'proud of our beers one'
But I took some notes and I've passed it now!
There was so much information and so many videos!!!
I *think* I've done all I need to do

nonperson 14-09-2021 05:54 PM

Well done! =)


A better haul than I was expecting but not great considering I had three bags, once of which was mostly full of chafer grubs, yuck. And definitely won't be able to make jackets with them XD

Did find a heart shaped one though =P

And it's no 45 stone pumpkin but still impressed with the size of this tomato!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 05:57 PM

Yay for potatoes!
You could probably make several days worth of a yummy potato salad!

That is one huge ass tomato!!!

nonperson 14-09-2021 06:01 PM

Ooh yeah I'll have to do some homemade potato salad. =D

My hands are quite small but yes, yes it is! I think it's going to be dinner tonight with mozzarella and a drizzle of pesto oil and some garlic bread. Nom.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 06:03 PM


Oooh that sounds yummy!

nonperson 14-09-2021 06:14 PM

Now to find the (minimal) effort to make it.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 06:22 PM

It will be so worth the effort!
