I also had a nap
Just got my phone off charge and need to lie down again as I am very tired!
Still obsessing over macaroni cheese :p

tamobhuuta 11-11-2019 06:07 PM

I had a lie down on the sofa earlier but didn't actually sleep. L is getting me a Costa on her way home! Great day!

not_so_insig 11-11-2019 06:38 PM

No snow here Lindsay just cold.

Lorraine texted me to say that she got her parcel. She's putting part of it in her happy box which pleases me a lot.

I have been using my slow cooker again. A whole chicken went in it today. Will strip it once Pointless is finished. I use the dark meat for curry.

one_step_closer 11-11-2019 06:52 PM

Gingerbread = yum, but I don't know about a latte.

Am I the only person who hasn't napped today? :laugh: I hate napping.

That's really nice Dawn. :-)

chinahorse 11-11-2019 06:56 PM

Gingerbread hot chocolate is where it's at!!

Napping is glorious.

tamobhuuta 11-11-2019 07:03 PM

That sounds yummy. I really liked Costa's bonfire latte but they've swapped it for gingerbread.

not_so_insig 11-11-2019 07:09 PM

I have gingerbread latte pods for my tassimo machine. They're Costa too.

It's flipping freezing here. The wind has died down however.

tamobhuuta 11-11-2019 07:13 PM

My feet are chilly again, even though I'm wearing woolly socks and slippers. But I still prefer autumn to summer.

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 07:38 PM

Gingerbread lattes are lovely!

It was cold and windy when I went out earlier.
Very warm on the ward though

My obsession has changed from macaroni cheese to spag bol

zombiehunter 11-11-2019 07:55 PM

Lacuna coil on Wednesday :-D

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 07:57 PM

That's a name I've not heard in a while!

I was meant to be seeing heilung today but stuck in hospital

chinahorse 11-11-2019 07:57 PM

Saw that name of live forum view and was wondering why you were happy about getting contraception :-P

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 08:03 PM


zombiehunter 11-11-2019 08:06 PM

why are you in hospital coco?? you need me to spring you??

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 08:13 PM

Because I am currently deemed too mental to function in society.
Yes please do!!

zombiehunter 11-11-2019 08:17 PM

ah so you are in the puzzle factory and not hospital hospital

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 08:40 PM

Ha! Puzzle factory

one_step_closer 11-11-2019 08:46 PM

Do they create puzzles or solve puzzles?

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 09:16 PM

Why not both?

not_so_insig 11-11-2019 09:24 PM

Someone I know calls it the Brazil nut factory.

Cacoethes 11-11-2019 09:26 PM

Also a good name for it!

not_so_insig 12-11-2019 10:43 AM

Morning all.

I am waiting for the washing machine engineer hence why I am up early. Fingers crossed that he can fix it!

It's also very windy here but thankfully it's not interfering with the dish.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 11:17 AM

Morning insig and everyone. I've had a lovely lie in but now it's time to get up.

chinahorse 12-11-2019 11:22 AM


Hope the engineer can fix it Dawn.

Glad you've had a nice lie in tamo.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 11:40 AM

How are you china?

chinahorse 12-11-2019 11:58 AM

I'm ok enough thanks. Actually not too exhausted as I slept through the night for the first time in forever!

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 12:00 PM


Fingers crossed about the washing machine Dawn.

I'm glad you enjoyed your lie in Tamo, are you doing anything exciting today?

That's really great Lillie! Do you have much to do today?

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 12:27 PM

Nope, not doing anything today. You?

chinahorse 12-11-2019 12:30 PM

Hey lindsay. Up to much?

I have nothing much to do today at all. Should hoover downstairs and mop the kitchen floor. Clean the bathroom and clean myself (but I'll do that this evening I think). Got laundry on which I need to hang up soon. And lots of crochet to do. One needs to be finished soon and the other by Christmas. Probably about 40 hours work left all together. And ideally I'd like to do a 3rd blanket by heists as well.

Cacoethes 12-11-2019 12:35 PM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 12:59 PM

You are doing a lot china!
How are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 12-11-2019 01:02 PM

I'm not thanks

How are you?

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 01:14 PM

I'm ok, full of cold .

chinahorse 12-11-2019 01:25 PM

Not what beckie??

Boo to colds.

Bertie is guarding the front door after a flyer was pushed through it.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 01:30 PM

Aw that's sweet

not_so_insig 12-11-2019 01:33 PM

Still waiting for the washing machine to be fixed.

2 of my postcards have arrived via postcrossing.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2019 01:46 PM


one_step_closer 12-11-2019 01:48 PM

Do you watch TV or something when you're crocheting Lillie?

Hope you're ok Beckie.

Poor you Tamo. I hope you feel better soon.

Where are your postcards from this time Dawn?

I can't get a taxi in the morning to take the cats to the vet tomorrow for their dental so they're having to go this evening and stay overnight. I feel sad and sorry.

chinahorse 12-11-2019 01:52 PM

Is it fixable though dawn?

I always have the tele on from the moment I get up. I can't deal withput noise.

Oh no lindsay! Have ypu tried every taxi company?!

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 01:53 PM

They are all doing school runs as I thought would be the case. There aren't that many taxi companies in my area.

I don't think I'd get anything done if I had the TV on all the time! Is there anything good on right now?

not_so_insig 12-11-2019 01:54 PM

I sent one to Russia and one to Germany. Not recieved one.

Lillie I am still waiting for the engineer to turn up!

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 01:57 PM

Ah right. Are you waiting on any arriving to you?

Did the engineer say what time they might arrive? It's annoying waiting in for people.

not_so_insig 12-11-2019 02:03 PM

Not that I know of re the postcards.

The tracking says that they're coming today between 9.20 am and 1.20 am. I am annoyed because I have been awake since 8 am and I could have had a lie in. I have been shaking for hours and been to the loo tons of times due to the anxiety of waiting.

chinahorse 12-11-2019 02:21 PM

Waiting is horrible. Hope they turn up soon!

Oh, that's sucky lindsay. Thpugh probably the same where I live now. I'm used to big city life and forget small places only have 1 or 2 companies.

I don't pay much full attention to it most of the time. The only thing I've properly watched and not done other things with is his dark materials.

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 03:07 PM

I hope they've arrived by now Dawn.

How is your day going Lillie?

chinahorse 12-11-2019 03:09 PM

Alright ta. Had a crochet break and mopped and hoovered downstairs and cleaned the bathroom.

But this occurred (too lazy to write so pasted from a message). Bertie is upset. Because he jumped in the bath I was cleaning with the shower. Despite me telling him not to 3 times and preventing him at least once. And despite ninja reflexes I got one of his back legs slightly damp.

not_so_insig 12-11-2019 03:09 PM

No still haven't arrived Lindsay. I am still going to the loo multiple times due to nerves.

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 03:14 PM

You've been very productive Lillie. You know it is entirely your fault that Bertie got wet, absolutely nothing to do with him. :laugh: Cats are so silly. Has he forgiven you yet?

That's really rubbish Dawn, poor you. I hope they can fix your machine whenever they arrive.

chinahorse 12-11-2019 03:18 PM

Haha according to bertie most things are my fault.

one_step_closer 12-11-2019 03:20 PM

Cats can't ever do wrong, and when they do they try and pretend it didn't happen. Mine do something weird and then have a quick wash like, let's just forget about what I just did!
