I am also chilly. Got my dressing gown on and wrapped in a blanket. My only plan is the Italian Mass which I'm hoping will still not be busy.

Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 12:32 PM

Sounds cosy!
I am also wrapped in a blanket.
And my heating has been on all morning!

Fingers crossed it's not too busy!

I'm just doing some washing and catching up with taskmaster

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 12:36 PM

Mostly when I do washing I forget it and leave it in the machine.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 12:47 PM

Luckily I never forget it!
I get it out when it beeps and put it by the stairs for next time I go up

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 02:50 PM

That's very organised. First I have to remember to take it upstairs, then I have to actually put it away.

My sister has come round :)

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 02:55 PM

I just have to do it right there and then or I never will!

Aww that's nice!

Elmer 28-11-2021 05:26 PM

Laundry is such a big thing, for such a little thing. And takes three weeks to dry at this time of year.

In case anyone was interested, I am, in fact, stranded in the Midlands.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 05:37 PM

Very true
Luckily I have a washer dryer so I don't have to wait for it to dry!

Oh nooo!
Do you know when you'll be able to get home?
Is it because of the weather?

Elmer 28-11-2021 05:42 PM

Ahh, very lucky.

The weather yeah, a sudden, not insignificant amount of snow has happened. Home tomorrow morning hopefully.

nonperson 28-11-2021 05:42 PM

Noo for being stranded! I'm assuming you have somewhere to stay?

With the wind chill it was -4 this morning when I went out. I'm now wearing a thermal top, t-shirt, jumper, hoodie and beanie and have the heating on.

Also I've said this many times before but my tumble drier is honestly the best thing I have ever bought. Absolute game changer.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 05:46 PM

Fingers crossed for you Lio!

I am also wrapped up and have the heating on!

Yes absolutely! I love mine too

I am watching 'Raiders of the lost shark'
It is the worst shark film I have ever seen
I love it!

nonperson 28-11-2021 05:56 PM

Is it literally Indiana Jones v sharks?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 06:03 PM

It's not related to raiders of the lost ark AT ALL!
It's completely random and I could do a better job acting than these people!
Someone just screamed 'FLYING SHHAAAARRRK'
Now a flying shark has just taken down an aeroplane.

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:10 PM

Ah I thought there might be some similarity at least based on the title.

Totally believable :eyeroll:

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:14 PM

It was absolutely awful.
Makes sharknado look Oscar worthy!
Just my type of film!

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:24 PM


And not mine at all!

Have you seen there's a new Hawkeye series on Disney+ ?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:30 PM


Yes I did hear about that!
Need to watch it!

Oh and I also caught up with the end of this series of taskmaster. The list for the next series is out already! It's Ardal O'Hanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsey, Judi Love and Sophie Duker

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:36 PM

I have not watched any of the last series... =(

But yay, Ardal O'Hanlon will be good! Don't know any of the others.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:38 PM

It was really good!

Yeah he's the only one I know as well!

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:41 PM

I recognise Chris Ramsey for some reason and Judi Love was on Strictly this year but I don't remember her from that.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:44 PM

I literally have no clue who they are!
But it will be good anyway because it's taskmaster!

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:05 PM

Definitely. =) When does it start?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 08:08 PM

March 2022.
So aaaggeess away :'(

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:28 PM

That is ages. 2022 seems like a weird number. Only just got used to 2021.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 08:31 PM

I'm still in 2020!

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:53 PM

2020 and 2021 seem to have been combined into one very long year tbh.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 09:04 PM

Yeah exactly
And now masks again!
Tbh I never stopped wearing a mask in shops or on public transport but bit scary that it's all becoming a thing again!

nonperson 28-11-2021 09:11 PM

Yeah. I've not stopped wearing a mask either and we've had to at work as well.

So many people weren't wearing masks on the tube the other weekend, despite all the constant reminders about it. I wonder how many people my "close contact" did manage to infect with their covid. I think it was probably the mask that saved me from getting it.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 09:27 PM

We don't have to at work which is weird.
And the new rules exclude pubs and restaurants?
It's very odd.

Yeah on the bus yesterday literally no one was wearing a mask! It's only the old people that seem to

not_so_insig 28-11-2021 10:22 PM

It's been compulsory for ages to wear a mask in shops and public transport in Wales. But I have noticed youngsters don't bother wearing masks on buses.

nonperson 29-11-2021 11:13 AM

No one's said it yet so I'm gonna...


tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 11:22 AM

Here too! How are you?

nonperson 29-11-2021 11:23 AM

Cold. =P


Cacoethes 29-11-2021 11:37 AM

I was beaten to it!

And yes! It is ****ing freezing!!!
I put the heating on before I even got out of bed! (Thank you, fancy wifi heating!)

How are you guys?

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 12:01 PM

I'm ok. My godmother can't visit because her arm is still too sore to drive. We're going to phone instead. And I really need a shower.

Anyone else got plans?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 12:08 PM

That's a shame

I have to take the bike to halfords to be repaired
About a 25 minute walk which isn't too bad

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 01:23 PM

Can you cycle back or do you have to leave it there?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 01:27 PM

It's an easy fix so that'll probably be able to do it in 2 seconds
It's just the handlebars don't line up with the wheel.
And I think something is off with the chain too.
I'm still not going to ride it back though. I'm too nervous.
A friend who is a bikeability instructor is going to help me build my confidence

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 02:47 PM

That's good. I never learned to ride a bike.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 03:29 PM

how be people?

I am 99% sure it's the same termperature ouside as inside my house today... until about an hour ago could literally see my breath. I technically have stuff to do but even I am finding it too cold to focus :laugh:

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 03:31 PM

I rode the bike half of the way back!
Had palpitations the whole time!

Oh no Hazel!
It is very cold today

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 03:53 PM

Well done for doing that Beckie, hopefully you can build up to more time on your bike.

It is very cold and I can't use blankets because Crookshanks either pulls out the threads or he steals it as soon as I stand up. I'm ok for now, not moving around the house just sitting in a corner on my couch with a jumper on. Also it's hard to do things with a blanket and you have to expose your hands to type.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 03:57 PM

I think I might light the fire... been putting it off as we are almost out of coal, but screw it my fingers are actually blue and my blanket seemingly does nothing

also yay for fear facing by riding the bike! Just build back up slowly, you'll get there

buy Crookshankes their own mini blanket? :P

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 04:00 PM

Sounds like very good reasons to light the fire. Will you be able to get more coal soon?

Crookshanks had his own mini everything but he likes to sleep on my lap whether I have a blanket or not. Right now he's upstairs on his donut bed.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 04:04 PM

universal credit goes into my account of wednesday so I should be able to maybe get some then. Though to be honest probably won't be able to get any until the weekend because it involves leaving the house :sigh: might see if I can get a friend to bring me some on wednesday if I send them the money... I have several important zoom meetings on Thursday so rather not be slowly freezing during them

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 04:19 PM

Thanks guys

I hope you manage to get some coal Hazel!

Have you got the heating on lindsay?

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 04:40 PM

I hope you can get enough coal to keep you going for a while Hazel.

I don't have the heating on but I do now have a snoozing cat on my lap.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 04:42 PM

That'll warm you up!

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 07:06 PM

I've had the heating on and then off again once there was less of a chill. Cat has abandoned me. How is everyones evening going?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 07:10 PM

I did the same.

Not bad. Just watching QI
