I like dogs too but wouldn't want to have to walk them lots or pick up their poo. I'm too lazy for walks.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 06:21 PM

Picking up the poo is the worst bit!
I'm too lazy for walks too really, but if I had a dog I'd have to walk!

nonperson 03-11-2021 07:26 PM

Because I've been home nearly constantly for five days the cat thinks it's food time all day long... >.<

Dog poo is the definitely the worst bit.

I actually miss dog walking. It becomes routine and it's nice having a little fluffy buddy to walk with and did me good to force me out of the house for quiet time/walking time/adventure time.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 07:40 PM


Dog walking can be really nice
Definitely good for the old mental health!

nonperson 03-11-2021 07:45 PM

Agreed. Although for me dog walking was always a bit stressful because of my massively badly behaved giant puppydog. So y'know...

But the moments where we had unexpected adventures or discovered new places or just sat down together somewhere peaceful are all good memories.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 07:58 PM

We have one of those! Sparkles (collie) is very well behaved. Charley (giant schnauzer) is not. She likes to swim in the river then jump up at anyone who dares walk past!

Aww that does sound good :)

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 09:47 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 04-11-2021 10:56 AM

Morning. How's it going?

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 10:59 AM

Not bad thanks!
Just had someone pick up one of the storage boxes so I'm glad that's out of the way!

How about you?

nonperson 04-11-2021 11:06 AM

Ah that's good they weren't sitting around for ages.

I'm just sat here with a cat on my lap, pondering the day.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 11:09 AM

I still have one to get rid of because it has a huge crack in it so can't really give it away.
It's quite big though!

Do you have much to do today?

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 11:11 AM

Hello both.
I'm glad your boxes are sorted Cacoethes.

Np in the morning I spend a bit of time thinking about my mission for the day.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 11:15 AM

Hey tamo

I don't tend to think about my day
I just do stuff lol

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 11:18 AM

How odd!

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 11:22 AM

Like, i know what tasks I have to do for the day but I don't really think about them!

nonperson 04-11-2021 11:25 AM

I think about everything, too much.

Thinking about phone calls I need to make, when to shower, when/what to eat, my increasingly-ignored list of chores, life, blah blah blah. My head doesn't stop! And that's why I don't ever get any of it done because I spend too much time being paralysed by thinking =|

I think it's a good thing to set an intention for the day, tamo. We used to do that in yoga classes, like... did we want to feel stretched, or feel strong and balanced physically/mentally or feel focused afterwards. It was interesting.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 11:30 AM

That sounds tough np
I wish I could suggest something!

I think it is good to set an intention for the day

I just got really bad cramp in my foot
Most unpleasant!

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 11:35 AM

I hate foot cramp, it makes it hard to walk!

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 11:44 AM

It does!
Its gone now thankfully!

nonperson 04-11-2021 12:16 PM

I don't like that sort of cramp that builds up slowly, then you get rid of it but then it keeps happening over and over!

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 12:34 PM

I don't think I've had that, thank goodness.

not_so_insig 04-11-2021 12:37 PM

Morning all. I have had a postcard today. It was sent in June but the sender sent it surface mail so that explains why it took a long time to get here. It came from Hong Kong.

nonperson 04-11-2021 12:46 PM


Cacoethes 04-11-2021 12:51 PM

I know that's awful np!

I've just arrived at work!
I started to panic because I could smell smoke but then remembered the fire lol

nonperson 04-11-2021 01:13 PM

Are you in charge of it today? =P

Hope your shift goes quickly.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 03:50 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope your shift goes well Beckie.

What have you all been up to today after much deciding?

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 04:32 PM

I showered!

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 04:47 PM

Well done Tamo :-D

Is that your big thing done for the day and now you can relax or do you have something else to do?

nonperson 04-11-2021 04:48 PM

I also showered!

And that is all I have been up to really apart from looking up new cat beds.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 04:53 PM

I'm not having a shower today!

Does Geordie need a new bed or is it a treat?

nonperson 04-11-2021 05:07 PM

He needs a new radiator bed and I kinda want to get one to go on the sofa so he doesn't keep sitting on me all the time. Trouble is I can't choose - there are too many options.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 06:45 PM

Ah, too many choices is hard. Do you think he'd choose to sit on a cat bed next to you or would continue to sit on you?

nonperson 04-11-2021 07:19 PM

Well I've put an old pillow covered in one of his blankets next to me as a trial and he's curled up and happily snoring away on it right now! Might not need to buy anything after all. =P

Although I like the idea of a cat sleeping bag, haha.

nonperson 04-11-2021 07:48 PM

OMG, I've just had an Amazon parcel turn up that I'd declared missing and got a refund for... 11 weeks ago.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 07:51 PM

Hey everyone!
Work was pretty busy and guess who was on her own again after 3pm?!

That's odd np!

At least you have it now!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:03 PM

Are you supposed to be on your own?

Very odd. I already bought a replacement when this one didn't turn up so now I have 2 spare toilet roll spring things!

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:07 PM

The whole point of me being on bar is so I'm not on my own! (That's what they told HR anyway....)
It happens pretty much every shift though

Oh! Well you can never have too many :p

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:15 PM

Also, apparently I say 'sauvignon blanc' in a really posh way?
I say it like 'sohhvignon' with the long o.
But everyone else says it like 'savignon' like with a sav instead of oh??

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:19 PM

I'd bring it up with HR again to be honest. If they're not adhering to the things to keep you safe then that is careless and unacceptable.

You might need to ask google how to pronounce that. I'd probably say SAV too but wouldn't be surprised if that was the common unsophisticated way of saying it!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:23 PM


You're right!

The French man waffles on a bit but says Savignon is mostly Australian but still acceptable ish.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:33 PM

I don't really want to bring it up
There's Usually people around anyway
There's a booth opposite the bar which is basically a staff table so there's Usually someone sitting there doing manager stuff

So I am basically doing it in a posh way then!
I blame my middle class upbringing! Lol

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:35 PM

Understandable, but if you feel like it's not right it's always worth just having a casual chat with someone if you're worried.

And nah not posh, it is the proper way to say it.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:47 PM

Nah it's all good.
As long as I have someone to take over when I need 5 minutes of fresh air

I like to say things properly!

It is very cold
Honeycomb coffee time I think!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:52 PM

Good. =)

Honeycomb is yum.

I'm pondering soup...

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:59 PM

It is yum!

What kind of soup?

nonperson 04-11-2021 09:03 PM

I dunno, something tinned. Can't remember what I've got in the cupboard but can't be arsed with anything else tonight.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 09:08 PM

I know the feeling!

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 09:08 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 05-11-2021 10:38 AM


First frost of the year last night. It's still on the grass, brr.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 10:39 AM

It is sooo cold!
I don't want to come out from under my blanket!
