Ah ok

I'm really glad you enjoyed it!
And you should be so proud of yourself!
I'm proud of you, sounds like you did really well!

I see.
When they changed my boiler it took them 8.5 hours because there were unforseen circumstances!
I hope yours is simpler!
Devon?! How random!

nonperson 22-09-2021 08:16 PM

Thanks. I am proud. Might post a pic some time. =)

8.5 hours?! I really hope it's not going to take that long!

Cacoethes 22-09-2021 08:32 PM

I'd love to see a pic!

It was only because they had to replace ALL the gas pipes. And take a load of tiles off.
Was a tough job!

nonperson 22-09-2021 08:59 PM

I've got a million photos to sort through and email to people so I'll add it to the list. =P

Eek. Well I haven't got any tiles to cause a problem at least.

Cacoethes 22-09-2021 09:02 PM

Definitely do!

That's good!
Hopefully it will be a simple job!

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 10:01 AM

Morning everyone!
Got a lie in today!
I still woke up at 7:30 but managed to get back to sleep

nonperson 23-09-2021 11:05 AM

Morning all.

Good to hear you got a lie in, Beckie.

My brain did not comply with a lie in today! >.<

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 11:08 AM

Morning guys.

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 11:09 AM

Morning np and tamo!

How are you both?

That's annoying np!

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 11:19 AM

I'm ok. I've got a friend coming over for coffee later. You?

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 11:24 AM

Sounds good!

I need to go to asda and then I've got work at 6.
Was supposed to be a day off but they really needed someone for tonight.
I don't mind. I like work and it's more money!

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 11:30 AM

I hope it goes OK. Have fun at Asda. What's top of your list?

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 11:36 AM

Thank you :)

I just need to top up the gas card because it ran out yesterday
But I will also get coke zero while I'm there because it's always good to keep a stock of it!

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 11:38 AM

Coke is good but it is best with spiced rum.

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 11:40 AM

I'm not a huge rum fan

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 11:41 AM

I don't understand you!

nonperson 23-09-2021 11:47 AM

Coffee with your friend sounds nice, tamo. =)

I'm having a nothing day. Got some minor life admin things to do (really exciting stuff like ordering more flea and worming stuff for the cat). Thinking about doing some very gentle yoga to stretch out my aching limbs... but that might just go as far as being a thought. =P

Go check out my photos in the picture thread!

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 11:59 AM

Lol tamo!
I don't like most spirits apart from in cocktails!
Or pink gin and lemonade.

Nothing day sounds good np!

I'll go and check out your pictures now!

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 12:03 PM

Np the display looks amazing! Well done!

nonperson 23-09-2021 12:08 PM

Thank you. =D

My bum is already going numb from sitting on the sofa for too long but I don't want to mooooove.

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 12:12 PM

Haha! I know that feeling!

not_so_insig 23-09-2021 12:49 PM

Morning all. The zoo was good yesterday but my feet ached like hell last night. I did a lot of walking. Still a bit foot sore. For those of you on Facebook I have uploaded the photos I took.

nonperson 23-09-2021 01:31 PM

What was the animal highlight of the day, Dawn?

I've just done 30 mins of yoga. =)

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 02:45 PM

Well done np!

I'm just back from asda.
I saw some baby pigeons on top of a traffic light!
They were feeding from the parent's mouth

tamobhuuta 23-09-2021 02:46 PM

Aw that's cute.

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 03:00 PM

Indeed!

nonperson 23-09-2021 04:18 PM

Have you ever seen very very young baby pigeons?

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 04:41 PM

I've seen pictures!

Have you seen one?

nonperson 23-09-2021 04:49 PM

Yep! Geordi's caught a few before that I've rushed over to the wildlife hospital. The first time he bought one in I was just like WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CREATURE?!

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 04:52 PM

Haha! They are kind of weird looking

nonperson 23-09-2021 04:57 PM

Totally weird and ugly, just like baby swans... except they grow into pigeons, nothing as graceful as a swan, lol.

Edit: although baby swans are not ugly at all in which case the Ugly Duckling story is based on complete nonsense... o.O

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 05:02 PM

Very true!

Just realised I'm going to miss taskmaster tonight.
Should have thought of that before I agreed to work! Lol

nonperson 23-09-2021 06:06 PM

Noo, you'll have to watch on catch up.

I'd forgotten it was starting tonight!

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 06:07 PM

Will probably watch it after work tomorrow!

Haha! Will you be watching it tonight?

nonperson 23-09-2021 06:17 PM

I will try, if I remember.

Doesn't Bake Off start tonight too?

Cacoethes 23-09-2021 06:22 PM

I'm not sure
Bake off isn't my sort of thing
I enjoy the memes though!

nonperson 23-09-2021 06:29 PM

Google says Tuesday was Bake Off day.

I usually start watching it and then give up. Noel Fielding is on it! Or was, I don't really know any more. o.o

Cacoethes 24-09-2021 09:55 AM

Morning everyone!

shadow-light 24-09-2021 11:37 AM

morning peeps


i am trying to force myself to do an assesment for an online course that I have already had two extensions for and not today in the deadline :laugh:

i'm usually obsessively good at sticking to timetables/deadlines but I just cannot seem to cncentrate on this one and I think I keep overthinking the questions :ermm:


what you lot up to?

tamobhuuta 24-09-2021 11:47 AM

Hi shadow and Cacoethes. I hope you can finish your assignment shadow.
How are you Cacoethes?

nonperson 24-09-2021 12:23 PM

Hi all.

tamobhuuta 24-09-2021 12:54 PM

Hi np, how are you?

one_step_closer 24-09-2021 01:05 PM

Afternoon everyone. I hope you get things done and also have time for yourself.

tamobhuuta 24-09-2021 01:24 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

nonperson 24-09-2021 02:56 PM

Holy crap - Shannon Miller has apparently just joined this site. She was my idol when I was doing gymnastics, lol.

Hey Tamo, I'm ok, just done some yoga. How're you? Was coffee with your friend nice yesterday?

Hi Lindsay - hope you can do some nice things for yourself today too. <3

one_step_closer 24-09-2021 03:33 PM

I've done all my three monthly things - cleaning the washing machine, cleaning the hoover filters etc. Also did some washing before I used the cleaner and put away the dry washing which has been on my clothes horse for days and still isn't actually dry because my washer dryer never dries properly. The washing comes out warm and damp. And did some hoovering.

Can you keep your balance doing yoga NP?

tamobhuuta 24-09-2021 03:58 PM

I'm ok, I finally took my washing out the dryer.

nonperson 24-09-2021 04:36 PM

Very productive, Lindsay!

I'm pretty bad at balancing to be honest. =/

Cacoethes 24-09-2021 06:22 PM

Was talking to someone at work this morning
Me: I need to catch up with taskmaster
Colleague: oh, my dad likes that
Me: *ages 50 years*

nonperson 24-09-2021 07:49 PM

Nooo. It's not an old person's show! Most of the people on there are young and new and hip and I've never heard of them and I'm pretty sure much older people wouldn't know them either.

On a semi side note, I watched the very first episode of brand new Never Mind the Buzzcocks last night, hosted by Greg Davies and has Noel Fielding as a captain!

Also Beckie I'm going to buy some stabilisers for your bike.
