I still haven't seen that! >.<

Stellata 04-09-2019 08:59 PM

Hi everyone.
I'm ok. Bit subdued.
Did my washing, went to Asda, read and slept.

Spaghetti with meatballs for dinner!

Eska 04-09-2019 09:02 PM

I’m in the middle of yesterday’s bake off.

Cacoethes 04-09-2019 09:03 PM

You must watch it np!!

Hi Katie
Sounds like an ok day
And spaghetti and meatballs sounds yummy!

I don't watch bake off

I have hiccups

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 09:20 AM

Morning everyone

Looks like I won't be able to go to the dance fitness class as apparently I will have a parcel coming soon
Very annoying!

Stellata 05-09-2019 10:20 AM

I hope its a good parcel?

I have writing group. I want to go to the library first but I woke up late arrgh.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 10:26 AM

It's just toilet roll.
I buy it in bulk from groupon!
So much cheaper

Hope writing group is good

Stellata 05-09-2019 10:27 AM

Not exciting but pretty essential then!

Thanks.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 10:33 AM

Yep!!
Just hope it comes before I go to meet my CC later

tamobhuuta 05-09-2019 10:55 AM

Has your parcel arrived yet Cacoethes?
Hope you have a good time Stellata.
I'm trying to get out of bed.

Eska 05-09-2019 10:56 AM

Morning everyone

Hope your parcel comes in time Beckie.

Is the writing group held near the live, Katie?

Eska 05-09-2019 10:56 AM

Ninja post Tamo! Getting out of bed is hard. You can do it though!

nonperson 05-09-2019 11:06 AM

Morning everyone.

Just dropping in to wish you all a nice day.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 11:06 AM

No sign of parcel yet!

Good luck with getting out of bed tamo, it can be very hard!

How are you eska?

Eska 05-09-2019 11:10 AM

I'm ok. Just in the waiting room for an appointment.

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 11:25 AM

Hello everyone. I'm so tired. Hope you're all doing ok.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 11:43 AM

Hope the appointment goes ok eska

I am also tired lindsay
Can you nap?

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 12:48 PM

Hello all.

I woke up with cramp today. :-(

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 12:54 PM

Apparently my parcel will be delivered between 3pm and 7pm
Wish they had told me that this morning!!

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 01:18 PM

That is really annoying Beckie. Will you be seeing your CC at that time?

I can't physically do naps. Feeling a tiny bit less tired now though.

You seem to get cramp quite a bit Dawn. I hope it eases soon.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 01:21 PM

Im seeing my CC at 1pm and then I'll go for a swim as we are meeting at the pool cafe.
I've selected leaving it in a safe place and will unlock my outdoor cupboard and hope they put it in there!

Glad you're feeling less tired
You up to much today?

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 01:28 PM

That's a good plan. Was there an option to specify where the safe place is? I hope it goes well with your CC and you enjoy your swim. Are you going to try for your new swimming goal?

I was supposed to be going to the gym group but haven't managed. :( Will try and go to Tesco in a bit.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 01:57 PM

Yes, i can't remember what I selected but it was either shed or outbuilding. I'm sure they'll work it out!
Thanks :)
Yep I'm going to try for a mile today!

Going to Tesco sounds good
What will you get?

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 02:58 PM

Good stuff Beckie. :)

I didn't make it to Tesco but picked up a book I had reserved at the library.

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 03:54 PM

Am back. I have been to poundland because I wanted some jiffy envelopes. Or rather Poundland version of them.

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 03:58 PM

Did you get anything else?

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:00 PM

No I didn't. Nearly got some cakes but they were £2 so I thought sod that. Probably would have got them if they were a £1.

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 04:01 PM

It's annoying how not everything in pound shops are actually £1 now.

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:04 PM

Yeah. I thought I can get a box of cakes for a £1 in Tesco. Plus they weren't by a well known brand. It's a bad layout in my local poundland too I had to walk half way through the store before I could get what I wanted.

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 04:06 PM

A lot of the things aren't even worth £1 and you can get things like hand wash cheaper elsewhere. I like the sweets though. :) Is it a big Poundland?

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

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:08 PM

I am just relaxing watching tv and planning what to have for tea. Wanted to go swimming but thanks to my body being a troll I cant.

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:09 PM

Yes it is a big Poundland

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 04:09 PM

That's a shame. I hope you can go swimming soon if you want to. Have you not got something in your slow cooker already? You always seem very well prepared!

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:12 PM

No because I was out I cant put anything in my slow cooker. It takes an minimum of 4 hours so it requires a certain amount of pre planning.

not_so_insig 05-09-2019 04:25 PM

My cats have clearly missed me while I was out - they won't leave me alone!

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 04:40 PM

Hey guys I'm back

Was hard talking to my CC because I had a plate of scones directly in my eyesight for the whole time so I was more focused on them than talking to my CC

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 05:14 PM

Aww kitties. :-)

Haha Beckie! I think I too would have been distracted. Did you get on ok? Did you go for a swim? Has your package arrived? Questions!

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 05:22 PM

I did get on ok thanks
Did go for a swim
No package yet!

How are you?

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 05:24 PM

That's good.

Does that mean you should be in when the package arrives then? It's usually better that way I think.

I'm not great to be honest. And I'm hungry again! Spaghetti on toast for dinner later. Do you know what you're going to have for dinner?

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 05:29 PM

Yep I'm in for the rest of the day now

Sorry you're not feeling great
Sending positive vibes!
Spaghetti on toast sounds good
I'll probably have jacket potato again
Got some potatoes i need to use up

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 06:49 PM

I didn't like the spaghetti so just ate the toast. Potatoes take ages to bake from scratch, I use the ready baked frozen ones.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 07:29 PM

That's a shame about the spaghetti
Yeah they do take ages.
Ready baked frozen ones sound better!

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 07:46 PM

Those ones only take 5 minutes in the microwave. A huge difference!

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 07:51 PM

That is a massive difference!!

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 08:03 PM

Did you have a jacket potato tonight? What is your favourite filling?

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 08:10 PM

Yes I did
My favourite filling is cheese and beans but I had tuna with a bit of salad cream mixed in. It was yummy!

one_step_closer 05-09-2019 08:11 PM

I haven't had salad cream for ages. Yum. They call it sandwich cream now though, right?

Edit: Just read they didn't go ahead with the change.

nonperson 05-09-2019 08:16 PM

I partially cook potatoes in the microwave and then put them in the oven for 20 minutes. That makes it quicker and tastier.

Cacoethes 05-09-2019 08:17 PM

I haven't had it in ages either
It was on special offer in the co-op so I thought why not!
I hadn't heard about the sandwich cream thing
Why the potential change I wonder?

I nearly exploded a potato in the microwave once so it's put me off!

nonperson 05-09-2019 08:19 PM

Did you not pierce the skin enough?
