Yes there's thunderstorm warning here too Lindsay but all we have had so far is a light showers.

Cacoethes 03-07-2021 08:04 PM

Hey guys I'm back!

There was a shower of rain at my mum's. My phone has been warning of thunderstorms for 2 days now!

not_so_insig 03-07-2021 08:11 PM

Did you have an nice time at Jasmine's?

Cacoethes 03-07-2021 08:20 PM

Lovely time thanks!

How's your day been?

nonperson 04-07-2021 10:07 AM

Morning everyone.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 10:39 AM

Morning np!
How are you?
I've missed you!

nonperson 04-07-2021 10:50 AM

Aw <3

I'm tired and a bit meh and need to clean and tidy the house for an electrical inspection tomorrow x.x

How're you?

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 10:52 AM

Fun times :/
*sends motivation*

I'm ok. Watching old episodes of the bill!

nonperson 04-07-2021 11:04 AM

Yeah... the guy needs to get to all the plug sockets so I can't have him/them (I don't even know who) crawling around in dust and fluff and spiders and grossness... I pretty much cleared the kitchen table yesterday though *shock* =o

Ooh that's such an old show.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 11:10 AM

Ah yeah.
Wow! Well done!

It is!
I've just seen someone watching Jeremy Kyle on a massive chunky TV! Lol
And the phones!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 12:08 PM

Hi guys.

nonperson 04-07-2021 12:09 PM

Ah the good ol' days XD

Were they all corded house phones?

nonperson 04-07-2021 12:10 PM

Hey ninja Tamo! How're you?

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 12:11 PM

Hi np :) I'm ok. Do you have any plans for today?

nonperson 04-07-2021 12:18 PM

Yes, I have the incredibly fun and enjoyable task of cleaning the entire house >.<

...which I am clearly not doing right now.

Glad you're ok =) Are you up to anything today?

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 12:24 PM

Good luck with the cleaning! Just a normal day for me, including Desperate Housewives.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 12:24 PM

Hi tamo!

It was those brick phones np!
And the teenagers had to take an actual camera with them to a party because the phones had no camera!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 12:26 PM

It was the stone ages!

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 12:42 PM

It was!
I feel so old.
I used to watch the bill when I was a kid! Before I even got a mobile phone!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 12:44 PM

I remember my first mobile - a Nokia 3310

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 12:48 PM

Good old indestructible Nokia 3310!
My first phone was a little Samsung. It did actually have a camera! I was the first in my family and at school to have a camera phone.
Picture quality was bloody awful though! XD

nonperson 04-07-2021 12:49 PM

It's so weird to think that youngsters today don't know a world without mobile phones/internet/wifi/flat screen tvs...

I made the mistake of talking about old DOS computer games with one of my students last year. Never going to forget the look I was given when I explained that DOS was the "operating system" before Windows was even a thing. Now that really shows my age!

nonperson 04-07-2021 12:54 PM

Oh and my first mobile was a 3310 too! With a bright blue case. I remember the days of the case shattering all over the place when it was dropped!

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 12:59 PM

I know!
Kids these days don't know how good they've got it.
Never missing a tv show due to catchup tv, being able to pause tv and skip ads, being able to find out an answer to any question within seconds....

Yep! Everything would fall out!
Now if you drop your phone you just have to hope and pray that the screen hasn't smashed!

not_so_insig 04-07-2021 02:02 PM

In Keeping Up Appearances Hyacinth gets a mobile phone. It's so big and thick compared to modern phones. It didn't have a contacts list as Hyacinth actually dials the number at one point. Some phones didn't have text messaging in the 1990s.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 02:09 PM

How weird!

I've been applying for jobs!

not_so_insig 04-07-2021 02:12 PM

It was 1995 when Hyacinth had a phone. Hyacinth panics when she thinks it isn't on charge. Some things never change.

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 02:23 PM

What kind of job are you looking for Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 02:30 PM

Anything really!
I've applied for several customer service roles and a couple of bar staff jobs because I haven't done that before! And the pubs in town are generally pretty quiet because we have so many!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 02:56 PM

I hope you find a good fit.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 02:59 PM

Thank you :)
It's going to be difficult as I have so many long gaps in my CV but all I need is an interview to show them how willing I am to work and I'm sure I'll have a chance!

nonperson 04-07-2021 03:10 PM

That's exciting, Beckie! Fingers crosses you get some interviews =)

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 03:18 PM

Thank you np!

How's the cleaning going?

nonperson 04-07-2021 03:24 PM

Slowly. And I hate feeling so grimey from cleaning. It makes no sense. Cleaning should make me feel clean!

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 03:26 PM

I know the feeling!
But at least you're getting it done!

I've just had a message from one of the pubs asking if I'm still interested and that they want to discuss the next stage with me! :O

nonperson 04-07-2021 03:33 PM

Ooh speedy reply =o

not_so_insig 04-07-2021 03:34 PM

I have washed my hair.

nonperson 04-07-2021 03:36 PM

Nice one.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 03:41 PM

Very speedy np!
Hopefully that means they haven't had many applications and I have a chance!

not_so_insig 04-07-2021 04:20 PM

Oooh my postcard to the Netherlands arrived.

That reminds me i must register a postcard that I had the other day.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 04:29 PM

I was promised a thunderstorm today but I only got 30 seconds of rain!

not_so_insig 04-07-2021 04:43 PM

I have had a heavy downpour but no thunderstorms yet.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 04:44 PM

I have a job interview for tomorrow! :O

nonperson 04-07-2021 04:49 PM

Just had a heavy downpour here. Had to close the back door because it was coming in sideways under the porch! No thunder though, think it's missing the south and heading up the east of the country/ North Sea.

Whoa! =o Interview practise time??

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 04:51 PM

Yep!
I've already asked my brother for tips as he's had a job in a few pubs. He gave me a couple of buzzwords to slip in and to just relax!

nonperson 04-07-2021 04:59 PM

I imagine interviews for pub jobs are fairly informal.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 05:01 PM

I think so.
He said they were pretty casual.
I really wasn't expecting a response so soon!

nonperson 04-07-2021 06:46 PM

Probably better to have a quick response than wait around for ages to hear anything!

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 06:52 PM

True!
I've been reading up about possible questions for pub interviews
I hope I remember it all!

How's the cleaning going?

nonperson 04-07-2021 07:13 PM

I've just got both rooms upstairs to do and then the bathroom. =(
