My boiler broke over the winter! My house got down to about 10 degrees.

Cacoethes 27-06-2018 10:57 PM

I've had that happen too.
Really awful!!

nonperson 27-06-2018 11:08 PM

I really don't like a super hot house in the winter though so I wasn't too bothered. =)

Hate how central heating makes the house feel... Well, the warmth is nice... but it's so stifling. =/

Cacoethes 27-06-2018 11:13 PM

That is true.
But when my boiler broke down it was an especially bad winter! The snow was really awful!
Took the landlord ages to fix the (ancient) boiler!

I'm off to bed now guys!
Night night

nonperson 27-06-2018 11:17 PM

Sleep well. =)

*sits in the corner and twiddles thumbs*

Charlie051 28-06-2018 09:25 AM

Good morning lovelies. How are you today?

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 12:37 PM


I've done something to my shoulder during the night and it really hurts!

Eska 28-06-2018 02:19 PM

Oh no Beckie! That doesn't sound comfortable.

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 02:39 PM

Nope it's really not!

How are you eska?

Eska 28-06-2018 02:42 PM

I'm ok! Enjoying the sunshine. On my way to a job interview! Eeek.

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 02:53 PM

Ooo good luck!!!

Eska 28-06-2018 03:48 PM

Thank you! I think it went ok. Fingers crossed...

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 03:56 PM

I'll have my fingers crossed for you!!

Eska 28-06-2018 04:46 PM

Thanks lovely!

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 04:47 PM


What are you up to this afternoon?

Eska 28-06-2018 05:46 PM

Finishing packing! I'm running away to the mountains tomorrow. It's all pretty much sorted, just a few finishing-off bits left. I might watch the second half of last weekend's grand prix before I start though!

How about you?

Charlie051 28-06-2018 05:50 PM

Im sure it did eska :)

Sorry to hear about your shoulder, i hope you feel better soon!

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 06:09 PM

Awesome! Hope you have a great time!

Thanks charlie :)

Charlie051 28-06-2018 06:10 PM

Have fun on your trip :D my replies seem to have a delay on them >< :p

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 06:24 PM

What are you up to this evening?
Or afternoon?
I think when I looked it up, 5pm was the afternoon/evening cut off.

nonperson 28-06-2018 06:52 PM

Yes we decided that evening was after 5pm!

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 06:56 PM

Thought so!

Dinner time for me.
Just a jacket potato and beans tonight!

nonperson 28-06-2018 06:58 PM


I'm going to do another round of mushroom, pancetta and pesto pasta. <3

chinahorse 28-06-2018 07:02 PM

Ew no can't do jacket potatoes. Had them 3x a week for 9 months.

I am a melty puddle of stress.

nonperson 28-06-2018 07:18 PM

I have phases with jacket potatoes. Too warm for them right now. They're more of a winter comfort food.

Sorry to hear you're a melty puddle. =( Can you have a relaxing evening to de-stress?

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 07:29 PM

I just fancied something super easy!
Did a Tesco online shop and got lots of ingredients for recipes from my slimming world meals for one book!
Trying to stick to plan this week!

Sorry to hear that Lillie
*offers hugs*

nonperson 28-06-2018 07:33 PM

Nothing wrong with super easy. =)

I've found a new favourite quiz show, although it's with celebs and not real people - Richard Osman's House of Games.

not_so_insig 28-06-2018 07:35 PM

I had a text message from Lorraine. She's ok but melting in the heat like everyone else.

nonperson 28-06-2018 07:36 PM

Aw, nice to hear from her. Say hi and to give Molly a cuddle from me! =)

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 07:42 PM

I like Richard Osmond.

Glad to hear she's ok
I miss her!

Eska 28-06-2018 07:55 PM

Aw, I'm glad she's ok. Give her our love!

one_step_closer 28-06-2018 08:01 PM

<3 Lorraine.

I ordered a fan from Argos when I was in bed last night. It's being delivered this evening.

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:03 PM

I bought fans last year after one of the heatwaves! So glad I have them now.

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 08:04 PM

I have a fan in my bedroom

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:06 PM

I got a small one for the bedroom and a pedestal one for my living room/kitchen as it's all open plan. It's a bit noisy and a bit too powerful really but I'm not complaining right now because it's doing a perfect job!

zombiehunter 28-06-2018 08:08 PM

that's me all packed and ready for my 5 day adventure to the highlands :-D

one_step_closer 28-06-2018 08:10 PM

Did you pack a fan Zombie? :laugh: Hope you enjoy your adventure.

zombiehunter 28-06-2018 08:12 PM

I'm a big heavy metal fan if that counts :-p

no I have sunscreen (factor 50) and midge spray though hopefully with the sun this warm it'll keep the midges away

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 08:12 PM

My living room is pretty cool anyway so don't need a fan

Sounds good zombie!

Wish I was going somewhere fun!

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:16 PM

I have a team building activity day tomorrow - enforced fun and I don't have to go anywhere for it, but at least it'll be a bit different to my normal work day. =)

zombiehunter 28-06-2018 08:27 PM

*packs coco away in my rucksack*

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 08:32 PM

Changing it up is good sometimes!

Yay I get to go too! :-D

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:33 PM

I want to come too. =(

zombiehunter 28-06-2018 08:34 PM

*puts NP in his rucksack*

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:36 PM

Yay. RYL party time in the highlands. =D

Cacoethes 28-06-2018 08:36 PM


nonperson 28-06-2018 08:46 PM

I might be extra super lazy and put a pizza in the oven instead of cooking.

zombiehunter 28-06-2018 08:48 PM

its ok to be lazy when the weather is roasting

Charlie051 28-06-2018 08:49 PM

Pizza's never a bad idea!
Anyone watching the match tonight? Cheering for England over here

nonperson 28-06-2018 08:51 PM

But lazy cooking is every night for me, regardless of weather. =/

Hi Charlie. Nah, I'm not interesting in watching seeing as my sweepstake team aren't in it any more!
