That's sensible to be emergencies only, Lillie. Hope you can use the extra time to get some rest.

I just spent an hour working on a project..... The programme crashed and I hadn't saved it. Doh.

Shirayuki 23-03-2020 05:58 PM

that sucks, I really hate when that happens, don't you?

Cacoethes 23-03-2020 06:31 PM

Ah that's so annoying np!

It was salmon bake for dinner
And chocolate sponge and custard for pudding

chinahorse 23-03-2020 06:47 PM

So annoying np!

Not my cup of tea at all beckie.

Blumming pharmacy washt an hour and a half early!

nonperson 23-03-2020 07:04 PM

What's salmon bake?

Lillie, that's more annoying than my problem! Everyone seems to be operating whatever hours they like at the moment.

Cacoethes 23-03-2020 07:27 PM

Salmon bake was basically chunks of salmon in a cheesy sauce. Was actually quite nice!

That is annoying Lillie!

I have just had a shower and put on brand new PJs. Feels good!

Koala hugs 23-03-2020 07:38 PM

jumps into thread
salmon bake sounds a lot like fish pie. ive tidyed my bedroom n folded two loads oflaundry hung up another load and have another load in the machine getting fidgety and slightly hyper but its all good coz ive gotta do all the dishes later (with one hand as i somehow managed to injure my wrist by holding the phone??!! that was two days ago n it still hurts)

one_step_closer 23-03-2020 09:20 PM

Using the phone is bad for you!

Cacoethes 23-03-2020 09:59 PM

So we're on lockdown now apparently

Koala hugs 23-03-2020 10:09 PM

definitely one step closer. 'scuse the spellings.
lockdown = scary to me

Cacoethes 23-03-2020 10:43 PM

Scary to everyone I would imagine

chinahorse 24-03-2020 07:52 AM

My observations of lockdown as an essential healthcare person travelling to work; more people on the road than the past few days,more people on the bus, more people on the street in general. :/

one_step_closer 24-03-2020 10:29 AM

That's madness Lillie.

I'm hoping the GP surgery gets back to me soon so I can pick up my meds less frequently than daily.

How are you all?

nonperson 24-03-2020 10:36 AM

The pictures of the London tubes this morning are awful.

People are also spitting and coughing in Police officer's faces too. What is wrong with people. =/

one_step_closer 24-03-2020 10:37 AM

That's really cruel and disgusting. I don't understand it either.

Do you have anything planned for today NP?

nonperson 24-03-2020 10:40 AM

Not particularly. Try to keep up with my new daily routine, maybe get in the garden for a bit, re-do the computer work I lost yesterday.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 24-03-2020 11:20 AM

Morning all. Those people spitting at police are plain stupid - they do know it's an offence, right?

My dad is making a pot of tea :)

tamobhuuta 24-03-2020 12:35 PM

I'm hoping to watch Robin Hood, if I can get Disney plus to work.

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 12:47 PM

Morning guys
I've only just woken up
They had to bring my meds to me this morning because I was so fast asleep and they never do that!

nonperson 24-03-2020 01:53 PM

Tamo, I love the Robin Hood cartoon. Kinda wish I hadn't dithered on getting Disney+ now cos I've missed the discount.

Oh dear, Beckie. =/ Must've needed the sleep though. Do you feel rested?

tamobhuuta 24-03-2020 02:32 PM

I'm going to watch Doctors in a minute. Anyone else a fan?

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 02:37 PM

I do not feel rested at all!

I really want Disney +
I want to watch the mandalorian

I find doctors a bit boring

nonperson 24-03-2020 02:55 PM

I used to watch Doctors on and off, I think. Never got into it though.

not_so_insig 24-03-2020 02:59 PM

I used to watch Doctors until they moved Neighbours to Channel 5 and put them at the same time.

nonperson 24-03-2020 03:14 PM

You could always watch it on iplayer, Dawn.

I can't figure out how to get Disney+ on my tv... *frown*

The Worst Witch 24-03-2020 04:33 PM

Really stupid question potentially, but what is Disney+? Is it just essentially a streaming service like Netflix, but only for Disney films and shows?

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 04:59 PM

I have Disney+ now :-D

Yes it is.
But you can also get marvel and other franchises associated with Disney.
I've just watched moana

nonperson 24-03-2020 05:01 PM

My tv is too old to get the app. >=(

I don't like watching on small devices or laptop. Apparently it will come to NowTV eventually so I guess I'll wait and be jealous of everyone else.

Or buy a new tv.

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 06:30 PM

I've just been watching it on the iPad.
I don't know if I'll be able to get it on the fire stick when I get back home. I can't get now tv on it which angers me

Probably best to buy a new tv :p
Or you could connect your laptop to the TV provided your TV has a hdmi port

nonperson 24-03-2020 07:02 PM

The tv I have is fine for now. Ugh no, good suggestion but I'm not one for cables and such everywhere. I want super ease of use, lol.

You could just get the NowTV stick, that's what I use.

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 07:16 PM

I forgot about the nowtv stick. I'll have to get one when I get home

nonperson 24-03-2020 07:39 PM

Good plan. =)

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 08:48 PM


What are you up to?
I've just made my millionth coffee of the day because there is nothing else to do but drink coffee and tea

zombiehunter 24-03-2020 08:57 PM

ive been distracting DOOM eternal on the ps4 beer Netflix and metal

plus my good buddy jack daniels is over tonight

nonperson 24-03-2020 09:13 PM

I re-did the work I lost yesterday. Then it got too late and dark to go for a walk so I went to pester the cat and play piano for a bit. Just putting some dinner on.

I know what you mean, Beckie. I don't want to admit to how many biscuits I've eaten today. =/

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 09:17 PM

Sounds good zombie!

Well done for doing the work np
Hopefully it's saved this time!

What kind of biscuits were they?

nonperson 24-03-2020 09:25 PM

Definitely saved this time! I saved it every few minutes to make sure I lost NOTHING.

Dark chocolate Hobnobs of course!

The Worst Witch 24-03-2020 09:30 PM

I love dark chocolate hobnobs, but my favourite biscuit has to be dark chocolate mcvities!

Hi. I guess I should introduce myself, I’m Alison. I live with 3 cats and my flatmate, currently studying to be a nursery teacher (or I was before the coronavirus hit). Finding this time a bit nerve wracking because we’re not allowed out on placement with kids (obviously) so I don’t know if I’ll graduate this year or whether or not I’ll have to make up time over the summer or not. Anyway, hi!

The Worst Witch 24-03-2020 09:35 PM

Also, the coronavirus has cancelled everything except my deadlines for coursework (only got extensions on practical units) so I’m looking to be distracted from all the mountains of work I have to do

nonperson 24-03-2020 09:42 PM

Hi. =)

I don't think anyone knows what's happening with graduating and exams at all levels at the moment. Uncertainty about things really isn't helping the situation. It will get worked out eventually and for the time being everyone just has to take a big breath and accept that what will be will be. Easier said than done. =P

More importantly, what are dark chocolate Mcvities? Are they more like digestives?

The Worst Witch 24-03-2020 09:46 PM

Yeah, they’re chocolate digestives essentially, I just have weird names for things :P

nonperson 24-03-2020 09:51 PM

Ahh I wouldn't turn down a chocolate digestive but I think hobnobs are superior!

Cacoethes 24-03-2020 10:35 PM

Dark chocolate anything is good!
And most biscuits are good too tbh :p

I've just had some toast and a horlicks

Hopefully all will become clear with uni stuff soon!

Koala hugs 24-03-2020 11:06 PM

Mmm toast and a Horlicks sounds good really good wish I'd bought Horlicks at Tesco earlier

The Worst Witch 24-03-2020 11:26 PM

Eww, horlicks!

chinahorse 25-03-2020 09:50 AM

Morning. Ive already washed up, done the litter tray and had a nap and its not even 9am.

one_step_closer 25-03-2020 10:14 AM

Productive Lillie. Do you have anything planned for the rest of your day?

chinahorse 25-03-2020 10:19 AM

Have some phone calls to make. Then if its ready Ill go and get my script fvrom the pharmacy.

How about you?

nonperson 25-03-2020 10:43 AM

Morning everyone.

I've had a lazy morning so far. Been up ages but just having breakfast.

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 10:50 AM
