Didn't it give you the option to have it delivered at the same time?

not_so_insig 14-12-2021 09:23 PM

Yes but for some reason they despatched it today.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 09:32 PM

Hm. Weird!

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 09:38 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:14 PM

Gosh you were up early Beckie. I am going to get my meds today hopefully as soon as the amazon order comes.

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:14 PM

Hi :) I just woke up! How are you?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:17 PM

I was up at around 8 but lay in bed for a bit!

I hope your amazon order comes soon dawn!
When's it due?

Hi tamo!
I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:23 PM

I'm ok - we've got our Christmas tree but I don't know when we will put it up and decorate. Do you have plans for Christmas?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:24 PM

I'm going to my mum's for Christmas :)

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:26 PM

A bit worried because I have had 2 letters with my full name on
I dread letters with my full name on. Especially as I think one is from the dwp.

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:34 PM

Official letters are scarey.

Does that mean you get to see Jasmine?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:36 PM

I HATE dwp letters!
Always scary!

Yes it does tamo :)
I'm hopefully seeing her this weekend too if mum's not busy
Last week they went to see my nanny

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:37 PM

I am off to my parents for Christmas. My cats are off on their hols too.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:41 PM

Lovely :)

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 01:08 PM

I have plucked up the courage to open the letters. One was the dwp telling me about a change in money coming in and the other was a letter regarding my coronavirus booster jab on Monday. The only other thing I had was a Christmas card but that didn't have my full name on so I knew I was safe.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 01:12 PM

That's not too bad then!

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 01:39 PM

Yep. I have just received my amazon order. It was the same person who delivered yesterday so at least she knew where to find my address.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 01:49 PM

That's good

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 01:54 PM

It means that I have no excuse not to go to the chemist now once they reopen from lunch.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 02:28 PM

Boris is going to be holding a press conference at 5 apparently

one_step_closer 15-12-2021 04:04 PM

Nicola Sturgeon is saying limit people in your house at Christmas time. It's just going to be me and my brother and he'll probably be sleeping over too. It all makes me worry, I'd rather be alone and not get covid.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 04:08 PM

Can you get him to do a lateral flow test before coming?

one_step_closer 15-12-2021 05:57 PM

Yeah I will ask him to. I'm just generally anxious about this new variant and how easily it seems to spread.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 06:04 PM

Yes it is quite worrying.
It's supposed to be milder than the original covid though

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 06:37 PM

I have been to the chemist via the park at the bottom of the road and washed my hair. I have also put the recycling boxes out.

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 10:34 AM

Morning everyone!
Had a bit of a lie in this morning!

tamobhuuta 16-12-2021 11:35 AM

That's good Cacoethes. I got up at my normal time. How are you?

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 11:37 AM

I'm ok thanks
You?

tamobhuuta 16-12-2021 12:03 PM

I'm ok. Worried about getting my mum's birthday present, it's right after Christmas. Have you done your shopping?

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 01:07 PM

Presents are always difficult!

Yes I have!

tamobhuuta 16-12-2021 01:40 PM

Well done :)
What are you up to today?

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 01:47 PM

Thanks :)

Not much!
I've been to asda. Should clean the house really
And need to shower tonight
How about you?

tamobhuuta 16-12-2021 07:43 PM

Nothing really but I'm enjoying a Christmas film.

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 07:56 PM

That's good :)

The only Christmas film I like is muppets Christmas Carol!

tamobhuuta 16-12-2021 09:43 PM

I never saw that, must have not been in their target market. It was American, right?

Cacoethes 16-12-2021 09:49 PM

I grew up with the muppets Christmas carol and muppets treasure Island!
I think they are American yes

One of my brothers just got engaged :-D

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 06:18 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 17-12-2021 11:39 AM

Congratulations to your brother :)

And hello! How are you?

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 11:46 AM

Thanks :)

Hello!
Was up at 3:45am so a little dazed but ok!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 17-12-2021 12:36 PM

How come?

I'm ok, looking forward to Confession in a bit. Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 12:49 PM

No idea!

I hope you enjoy it!

I've just arrived at work
Start in 10 mins

tamobhuuta 17-12-2021 02:21 PM

I hope you have a good time.

one_step_closer 17-12-2021 04:54 PM

Quiet in here. Lacking Beckie and NP!

How has everyones day been?

not_so_insig 17-12-2021 05:44 PM

I have had my mum here. Am waiting for my jacket potato to cook.

tamobhuuta 17-12-2021 06:00 PM

I have packed almost all my presents.

not_so_insig 17-12-2021 06:11 PM

I have wrapped all of mine.

nonperson 17-12-2021 06:28 PM

I need to wrap mine at the weekend now that they've all arrived in the post today. Arse hole Amazon driver literally threw them over my gate though so I smacked the gate straight into them when I got home.

How's everyone this evening?

Trying to decide whether to complain to Amazon or not because that is often harder to do than it is worth!

shadow-light 17-12-2021 07:33 PM

all my pressents have been wrapped and delivered :P

THough to be fair there were only 4 of them as we don;t really do christmas

YellowCalx 17-12-2021 07:40 PM

I have bought a whole grand total of 4 presents so far. I still have no idea what anyone wants so if they don't hurry up and tell me they're all going to end up with socks.

shadow-light 17-12-2021 07:42 PM

socks are useful at least
