Hello all. No horsey action on the telly tonight but there's some on Friday through to Monday at various points throughout the day. They have collected the bins and I have no workmen today in my block of flats so that means that I can go ahead and clean the communal area.

chinahorse 19-12-2019 02:05 PM

Latte sounds nice beckie. Sorry about the tooth.

Hope going through the list helps tamo.

I've just washed and dried my hair and now it's raining outside. Grrr. Drying my hair takes too long for it to be messed up by rain.

not_so_insig 19-12-2019 02:29 PM

It's not raining here Lillie. But it's very dark.

chinahorse 19-12-2019 02:35 PM

Lucky you. Not showing any sign of stopping raining here. I'm waiting until the end of my laundry then will have to put on a hat and umbrella and go out.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 02:37 PM

Ugh that sucks Lillie
Hope it stops soon!

It's just started to rain here.
Luckily I've just got home

tamobhuuta 19-12-2019 02:45 PM

It's raining here, doesn't look like stopping. But I quite fancy a walk.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 03:20 PM

It's pouring down now!

not_so_insig 19-12-2019 03:37 PM

I have cleaned the hall area. Because of the amount of dirt I had to use the corded Dyson whereas normally I use the cordless Hoover. I had forgotten how heavy it was. I am relaxing now.

not_so_insig 19-12-2019 03:52 PM

Now it's raining.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 04:14 PM

Stopped raining now!
We should rename this the weather update thread

chinahorse 19-12-2019 04:27 PM

Can you all stop sending your rain to me? Its a waterfall out the sky here.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 04:32 PM

Sorry Lillie!

tamobhuuta 19-12-2019 04:43 PM

Apologies china.

It stopped raining for a bit so we went for a walk.

Shirayuki 19-12-2019 05:00 PM

hi guys, sorry about that even though its been snowing here

not_so_insig 19-12-2019 05:18 PM

It's definitely raining here. Plus there's a cold biting wind. My fingers are numb even though I just went to the postbox which is less than a 3 min walk.

chinahorse 19-12-2019 05:19 PM

You're forgiven!

Buttons however isnt. I've just demolished an unholy amount of crumpets because she made me want them!

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 05:23 PM

It was meant to snow here a few days ago but no sign!

Oh dear Lillie!

chinahorse 19-12-2019 05:40 PM

Too warm to snow now thank goodness.

I'm at a loss what to do with myself now I've finished the blanket.

not_so_insig 19-12-2019 05:47 PM

What should I have for tea? Choices are pasta bake, nachos, pasta with tomato and basil sauce, cheese toastie, bacon sandwich, scrambled egg on toast or jacket potato with beans.

chinahorse 19-12-2019 05:49 PM

Pasta bske

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 05:58 PM

It has been unusually warm today

tamobhuuta 19-12-2019 05:59 PM

Jacket potato

nonperson 19-12-2019 06:13 PM

Pasta bake. =)

I will have leftover chilli at some point.

Also... three day weekeeeend now. =D

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 06:28 PM

I'm either going to have lentil soup or pasta and pesto.
Not hungry yet though

Yay for 3 day weekend!
Got anything planned?

chinahorse 19-12-2019 06:33 PM

I just nearly set the washing machine on fire. :-|

nonperson 19-12-2019 06:34 PM

Both nice choices.

Nothing much planned. There's stuff to do tomorrow - wait in for a parcel, see my friend, bit of christmas shopping... but otherwise nothing.

nonperson 19-12-2019 06:34 PM

Eeek! How?!

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 06:36 PM

Oh no Lillie! How??

Sounds chilled np

chinahorse 19-12-2019 06:39 PM

Melted one of the bases of my slippers. It must have got caught by the door or something. Now my machine and load and whole house smell burnt rubbery.

nonperson 19-12-2019 06:44 PM

Oh dear. =/

tamobhuuta 19-12-2019 06:45 PM

Ew that's not good China.

I washed my hair!

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 06:54 PM

Oh that's not good at all Lillie :/

chinahorse 19-12-2019 06:54 PM

Well done tamo.

Yeah its grim. Lit my girl gingerbread candle so hopefully that'll help.

nonperson 19-12-2019 07:49 PM

Hope it is helping mask the smell.

I feel about ready for bed... =/

chinahorse 19-12-2019 07:58 PM

Curl up on the sofa instead?

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 08:04 PM

Or go to bed.
Never too early if you're feeling it.

I managed to cook just the right amount of pasta which is unusual

one_step_closer 19-12-2019 08:10 PM

How many times do I have to tell you to weigh your pasta Beckie?

chinahorse 19-12-2019 08:11 PM

Blimey. Some skill there beckie.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 08:23 PM

I know I know! I don't know how much pasta is correct though!

Ikr Lillie!

Also, happy birthday lindsay! *brings out cake*

one_step_closer 19-12-2019 08:27 PM

It tells you on the packet. :tongue2:

Thank you. What kind of cake is it?

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 08:29 PM

I did not know that!

Whatever kind of cake you want!

one_step_closer 19-12-2019 08:33 PM

Have a look and I bet it tells you. I think it's 75g per person.

Well then it is chocolate cake! *shares*

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 08:38 PM

Sounds about right

Yay chocolate cake! :-D

one_step_closer 19-12-2019 08:39 PM

I find that 75g is too much if you're having pasta with bolognese or something more substantial than just sauce.

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 08:50 PM

Yeah I'd definitely go less if I was having bolognese

chinahorse 19-12-2019 09:10 PM

Also like depends how hungry you are? I know I can eat way more or way less depending.

Ooooo chocolate cake.

tamobhuuta 19-12-2019 09:14 PM

Chocolate cake, hurray!

Cacoethes 19-12-2019 09:15 PM

That's true Lillie

Everyone seems to approve of the chocolate cake!
