Have you seen the jpg of me from a meet where I swapped hats with a policeman???

Lol, snobby guinea pigs :P

I loved when you said in your RV about not being able to stop thinking about the doughballs! I really hope you get them! We got a 20 M&S voucher from someone we didn't even invite to our wedding and K disagrees that it should be spent on five vegan cake jars from there...

Also I assume you know from your guinea pig facebook groups but just in case - make sure you check there to see which P@H stuff is actually guinea pig safe! They sell loads of stuff that is unsuitable for chinchillas :eyeroll:

Pi.R^2 22-12-2022 06:16 PM

Ninja Lindsay! I'm now giggling about 'special sausage' I'm afraid...

one_step_closer 22-12-2022 06:18 PM

I wondered if that might happen, Jenna. You met my expectations!

Yes please!

Can you also drive me there, get someone to fill up the petrol and maybe make it warmer and less dark outside? =)

Special sausage, lol XD

Cacoethes 22-12-2022 06:31 PM

I'm not busy tomorrow really!
Just a few shops and need to get present wrapping done because I'm at work on Saturday!

I feel like i have seen that jpg! Not for a while though!
The meets were fun
Now covid isn't a thing anymore, do you think we could reinstate actual meets? I've actually been meaning to ask for a while!

Honestly these doughballs were insane!!!

Vegan cake jars sound amazing tbh!

Yes I have read about some pets at home stuff being dodgy! I will ensure I check things over thoroughly!

Lol. Special sausage

not_so_insig 22-12-2022 07:10 PM

Hello all. I had my flu jab today. Apart from a sore arm I am ok. It's been wet and cold here most of the day.

tamobhuuta 22-12-2022 07:30 PM

L did bring the wrapping stuff but unfortunately not my sister's presents so I'll have to do them tomorrow.

Cacoethes 22-12-2022 07:41 PM

Pippin has woken up and chosen violence.
He keeps ripping the paper off the chew tube. I'm not even sure how!

Pi.R^2 22-12-2022 08:32 PM

Haha, sounds like Pippin is in a mischievous mood!
That’s a shame you’re missing a gift tamo. Have you bought any particularly interesting gifts?
Also i sent you a reminder of the police hat jpg Beckie because i like spamming people with jpgs!

Pi.R^2 22-12-2022 08:33 PM

Np is viewing the thread! Does that mean you survived the shop??

nonperson 22-12-2022 08:33 PM

Naughty Pippin >=P

I survived the shop! It was busy but not too bad and the petrol station is no longer a big scary unknown. And I have mozzarella sticks.

I've had a non-vegan cake jar thingy from m&s before. Very sweet! Must try to look out for the dough balls when I'm there next.

nonperson 22-12-2022 08:34 PM

Haha, yes. Took forever to type my survival report.

Pi.R^2 22-12-2022 08:38 PM

Yay! You have lived to tell the tale!! And hooray for mozzarella sticks!
Oh and in theory yes to meets Beckie, i just think we may struggle to ever get enough people for any given location :(

Cacoethes 22-12-2022 08:40 PM

He is!

It is indeed an excellent jpg!
Idk why but reminds me of my selfie in handcuffs smoking a cigarette. Well, it wasn't technically a selfie. I tried to take a selfie but the handcuffs kind of prevented that. So the police officer took the photo XD

Well done for surviving np!
And I'm very jealous of the mozzarella sticks!

That's true jenna. We are all rather spread out nowadays!

Pi.R^2 22-12-2022 09:45 PM

Why have i not seen this jpg?????

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 05:29 AM

Morning all!

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 08:55 AM

Have you not seen it jenna??
I guess if you're not really a user of fb!
I'll try and dig it out

I had a lie in this morning. Until just after 8:30!
It's pouring down with rain

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 09:19 AM

I don't think so!
Good morning :) Glad you had a lie-in!

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 09:30 AM

Just remembered that I had a dream that I'd received a PM on here, but turns out I haven't so that's the end of that.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 09:44 AM

Unless you checked and deleted a pm in your sleep??

Zurg 23-12-2022 09:45 AM

Dang Jenna. When i have a Dream about something that feels immensely real life-ish, i always become so damn confused when it doesn't match up with reality. Often i also can't remember whether i've actually told people about something or just dreamt i told them… i am old and confusion is a legit thing!!!

Also, hi everyone :)
How are you all today?

I am going grocery shopping soon. Mmmm, food…. And snacks…. And coffee…. :P

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 10:04 AM

I'm ok

Jasmine is coming over this morning
I may still go to the retail park. Though she hates walking so will probably moan the whole time. And it's raining!

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 10:07 AM

Morning everyone x

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 11:24 AM

I am contemplating trying to brave the city centre today. I have a donation for the charity shop but it's not like super urgent that I go. I would like to go to m&s but urgh crowds.

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 12:01 PM

Dad went to the supermarket yesterday and said it was rammed! How brave are you?!

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 12:08 PM

Not to brag but I don't need to delete PMs because I get a massive inbox with all my other dastardly powers :P

You could get Beckie's dough balls!!!

I've decided the best way to deal with the stress of food shopping is to avoid it until tomorrow. That'll work right???

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 12:09 PM

I have decided to go. Besides m&s might not have what I want.

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 12:17 PM

Good luck!

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 12:34 PM

I almost made it on the bus. I remembered that I forgot the charity shop item at the bus stop and then by the time I went back i missed the bus. So I am waiting for the next one.

one_step_closer 23-12-2022 12:59 PM

Hey everyone. I hope your days are going to plan.

It took me ages to find a pudding in Tesco that wasn't use by the 25th. I got chocolates for my brother but also the same ones for me so I won't eat his. I'm terrible with having treats/snacks in the house so I try to buy only a very small snack for the day but not this time!

Elmer 23-12-2022 02:18 PM

So I've read all the replies and def sniggered at 'special sausage'.

I hope all your days are going to plan.

I mainly replied because I need to ask Beckie if her brother works in a town beginning with H because I have a friend in that exact job, she's doing her PhD, and now I need to know if she knows your brother

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 02:27 PM

I have been to the city. It wasn't too packed thankfully so didn't get too stressed. The charity shop was closed so couldn't donate my stuff but I managed to get to m&s. I got what I wanted from there so I count it as an mostly successful trip.

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 02:30 PM

I'm glad you were successful :)

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 02:33 PM

Thanks tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 23-12-2022 04:49 PM

Getting things ticked off your list is a great feeling. I'm glad you got things done, Dawn.

nonperson 23-12-2022 05:04 PM

Evening folks.

I'm surprisingly chipper this evening. It was my last full day of work today =)

This is usually my way of dealing with food shopping but I know, and I think you know, the answer is always no.

one_step_closer 23-12-2022 05:06 PM

Yay NP! I'm glad you're feeling good. Do you have to work shorter periods through Christmas or do you have full days off?

nonperson 23-12-2022 05:10 PM

I have three full days off now then I'm working four part days where I just need to go in a couple or times a day to do what I need to, then I've booked off the first week in January so I get some proper time off.

one_step_closer 23-12-2022 05:14 PM

Sounds good. Have you any plans for your time off?

nonperson 23-12-2022 05:16 PM

Nope, not really. Probably just hole up and hibernate.

one_step_closer 23-12-2022 05:17 PM

If that's good for you then that's ok! Do you have to meet with your family over Christmas?

nonperson 23-12-2022 05:33 PM

I'm not sure if it's good or not to be honest! I don't "have" to see family I suppose but feel obliged to, so I'm going home for Christmas day and boxing day to see my parents and am undecided about going back over new year to see my sister. Can't decide whether it's worth all the travel or not but it would break up the time a bit.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 05:47 PM

Got to be honest Lio, I have no clue where my brother lives or works XD

I am now child free and waiting for the bus home after dropping her with mum.
I need the toilet but no toilets are open!
Hope the bus actually turns up lol

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 05:48 PM

Oh and i got my doughballs!
Convinced jasmine to walk to the retail park with the promise of costa

nonperson 23-12-2022 05:52 PM

Yay for dough balls! Not so yay for no toilets... I always want to go more when I know I can't... =/

Did you have a nice day with Jasmine?

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 06:52 PM

I am home now. Luckily got the fast bus home. So only just over 30 mins!

Yes it was good thanks!
Though i still haven't wrapped any presents. Ugh!
But Mrs doubtfire has just started!

nonperson 23-12-2022 07:03 PM

Ah that's good it was a short journey.

Glad you had a nice day! Ooooh Mrs Doubtfire. I've just put it on too. Seems like the right TV choice for tonight =D

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 07:07 PM

Mrs doubtfire is ALWAYS the right tv choice! :-D

nonperson 23-12-2022 07:14 PM


I'm trying so hard not to post my usual helloooooooooo gif XD

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 07:18 PM

Doooo it! You know you want to!!!
