To be honest Christmas isn't a religious holiday for most people anymore. Giftmas describes it much better!

I used my minute to eat an extra flapjack. =)

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 09:39 AM

Morning everyone!

Work was mental last night!

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 11:23 AM

I can imagine. I'm ok. Having coffee then tea. Have you ever had white chocolate spread? It's quite nommy.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 11:27 AM

No I haven't! I'll have to try it

My friend has just ordered costa for us
I have a gingerbread latte

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 12:01 PM

Nice one! I think I had that last year.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 12:11 PM

It's really nice!

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 12:28 PM

I want to try this:

Quality Street® Toffee Penny Latte with Light Dairy Swirl

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 12:43 PM

Oooh that sounds nice!

not_so_insig 04-12-2021 01:09 PM

I had that on Monday tamobhuuta. It is nice.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 03:17 PM

I will try it next Costa trip.

one_step_closer 04-12-2021 03:17 PM

I wish I liked coffee so I could have all those yummy sounding drinks. And so I can wake myself up.

nonperson 04-12-2021 04:11 PM

I may have misheard the radio advert but I think it said somewhere is doing a chocolate orange hot chocolate!

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 05:34 PM

I think Costa is doing that.

I had a mince pie and feel Christmasy.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 06:34 PM

We've been for our Christmas lunch!
Soooo full!

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 06:51 PM

Did you have turkey?

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 06:56 PM

And a black forest waffle for dessert!

nonperson 04-12-2021 07:27 PM

Pigs in blankets are where it's at.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2021 07:36 PM

Those sounds great. Idk what we veggies are going to have. And I hate Christmas pudding.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 07:37 PM

We also had pigs in blankets!

I'm not a fan of Christmas pudding either

nonperson 04-12-2021 08:59 PM

I like christmas pudding but only in small quantities. Home made is vastly better than store bought too.

I'm not sure what to do about christmas dinner this year, like normally I'd be all over the pigs in blankets but I feel I'm not going to enjoy them so much this year because I'd feel guilty now that I've pretty much gone meat free. And I'd feel silly saying to my parents to do me a veggie version.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 09:04 PM

That is a predicament!
It's Christmas though, so guilt stuff is allowed!

nonperson 04-12-2021 09:52 PM

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too.

Cacoethes 04-12-2021 10:03 PM

'**** it, it's Christmas' is universally recognised!

nonperson 04-12-2021 10:05 PM


Cacoethes 05-12-2021 10:04 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 05-12-2021 10:49 AM


How's everyone today?

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 11:29 AM

Not bad thanks!
We are going to 'Sunday on the square' today.
Lots of live music and Christmas stalls!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-12-2021 12:01 PM

Hi np and Cacoethes. Hope you're both well.

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 12:21 PM

Hey tamo :)
How are you?

I now can't go to the Christmas market because I've been struck with a mystery illness (definitely not covid!)

nonperson 05-12-2021 02:13 PM

Oh no, mystery illnesses are the worst. Something you ate yesterday?

I had to rush around emergency tidying the house this morning for my friend who came for a brief lunch.

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 02:17 PM

My friend thinks possible blood sugar crash.
It's not like an 'eaten something weird' illness
I've never experienced anything like this before!

Well done!
Did you have a nice time?

nonperson 05-12-2021 02:41 PM

Ah yeah hypoglycaemia feels ****ing awful. I know you might not want to but eating something less sugary and more carbohydratey will help bring your sugar levels back to normal and keep them there.

It was ok, nothing special and only for half an hour because she's working near to my house today. But it did force me to tidy up so I can see my kitchen again.

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 02:43 PM

I don't think I have anything carbohydratey. My friend is out, I'll ask him to pick up a sandwich or something.

Well that's a good thing at least!

nonperson 05-12-2021 02:43 PM

Regarding the eye thing, that sounds like what happens to me when my sugars drop. Sometimes the feelings don't go away for a while even after your sugars have stabilised.

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 02:56 PM

That sucks
It's really annoying!
And does not help the nausea!

nonperson 05-12-2021 03:16 PM

It's a peculiar feeling for sure.

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 03:22 PM

It is indeed!

I was too late for my friend to get a sandwich but he has frozen roast potatoes. That should work!

one_step_closer 05-12-2021 04:08 PM

I hope they are nice crispy roast potatoes. Hope you feel better soon.

My kitchen door won't close and I've tried my best to make my kitchen cat friendly but I'm worried Crookshanks will get into something. I started by pushing the table over the door to keep it closed but then I had to go in and out the front door and back door any time I needed to get into the kitchen. I put in a repair request but I don't know when they'll be able to come. Such a worry!

How is everyone elses day going?

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 04:10 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

Oh no! That is a worry!
Hope they don't take too long to fix it!

one_step_closer 05-12-2021 04:13 PM

It's not an emergency so it will be during the week anyway. I hope they can get back to me quickly so I know when I need to be in. I have to collect a parcel from the delivery office in another town and it has weird opening hours.

Are you managing to relax or focus on something Beckie?

Cacoethes 05-12-2021 04:19 PM

We have weird opening hours at ours too!

Not really
My eyes are still being weird
But I have potatoes now!

one_step_closer 05-12-2021 04:23 PM

What do you put on your potatoes if anything?

nonperson 05-12-2021 04:33 PM


Cacoethes 05-12-2021 05:10 PM

I didn't have anything on the potatoes but usually gravy!

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 09:35 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 06-12-2021 11:59 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you? Any plans for today?

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 12:03 PM

I still feel dreadful physically!
Don't know what's going on!
No plans

How about you?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2021 12:12 PM

I'm feeling bad mentally but I need to sort myself out because my godmother is visiting later.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 12:14 PM

Hope you have a nice visit
