Hi everyone - I hope you're all doing well.

Peacock here is a free (and paid) streaming movie and show network, but hardly any selection for us free users nowadays. :indifferent:

not_so_insig 11-12-2022 08:16 PM

We used to have a Peacocks in the city centre but it closed several years ago. We have a Primark though. Plus a Smyth's toy store.

nonperson 11-12-2022 08:34 PM

Evening all.

Hope you're all staying warm!

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 08:35 PM

Np! Its been forever!

not_so_insig 11-12-2022 08:36 PM

It's flipping brass monkeys outside nonperson. I have been to the seaside today.

nonperson 11-12-2022 08:41 PM

Beckie! Not quite forever =P

It's the same here, Dawn. I was out walking around a garden today. The frosty/misty views were amazing.

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 09:01 PM

No, it HAS been forever! :tongue2:

Yep was freezing. Jasmine moaned the whole time we were walking :plain:
It wasn't even a long walk! Only 30 mins!
But i guess if you're used to getting chauffeured around, it seems like a long walk!
Well, the walk back was a bit longer because we went into town before home.

nonperson 11-12-2022 09:14 PM


Youngsters like to moan about anything!

But then again, oldies do too I suppose. And Brits especially like to moan about everything. It's not like we've not been cold before and don't know what to expect in winter!

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 09:20 PM

Well, if we didn't have the weather to moan about, what would we talk about at hairdressers and in shops??
It does get a bit tiresome when you end up having the same conversation about the cold with every.single.customer. Though i guess it's nice to mix it up a bit from 'is pepsi ok?' And 'sorry we don't have J20'
If i had a for every time I said those things, I wouldn't have to work anymore!

nonperson 11-12-2022 09:30 PM

I don't talk to anyone in hairdressers or shops!

But the real question is WHY DON'T YOU HAVE J20?!

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 09:39 PM

I'm a chatterbox. I talk to everyone everywhere XD

I honestly don't know!
We have mango and passionfruit juice, pineapple coconut and lime, apple, orange and cranberry. So most people just go for the mango and passionfruit instead of J20.
I think we should have it, people ask for it all the time.

nonperson 11-12-2022 09:48 PM

Haha XD

I guess those things aren't really any different. J20 is just synonymous with any mixed fruit juice really. Must be hard explaining it to customers though!

nonperson 11-12-2022 09:49 PM

I have hiccups...!

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 09:56 PM

Some people get proper upset about it. It's weird!
And about the pepsi.
Like I have any control over it :eyeroll:

Oh no!
I've always found yogurt stops my hiccups!

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 10:11 PM

We got snow!
I'm waiting for night meds. I want to go to bed.

Cacoethes 12-12-2022 09:44 AM

Morning everyone!

Quite a bit of snow.
The walk to work is going to be fun!

not_so_insig 12-12-2022 11:39 AM

Morning all. It's flipping freezing. Unfortunately I have my coronavirus booster jab today so I have to go outside today.

Cacoethes 12-12-2022 11:45 AM

It is freezing. I have work and groovefit.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2022 01:59 PM

I made a mini snowman yesterday evening!

tamobhuuta 12-12-2022 03:11 PM

I thought it might be snowing again but I think it's just leaves falling off trees.

one_step_closer 12-12-2022 03:27 PM

It has been snowing overnight here too, and it was yesterday so it's lying. Walk like a penguin over the icy bits! (Takes too much focus for me).

I'm glad you're getting your booster, Dawn. Hopefully it will keep you well. Wrap up. Then you'll have to take stuff off to get to your arm!

Mini snowman, how cute. :-D

tamobhuuta 12-12-2022 04:55 PM

How's your day going osc?
My godmother came to visit. She gave me fudge and a Christmas card.

one_step_closer 12-12-2022 05:43 PM

That sounds like a nice extra to your visit!

I got up later than I wanted to but got my to do list done. Didn't have too much on it. Got loads of post too, I like post when it's not scary post just things I've bought and things other people have sent to me. And I bought a Muse t-shirt and a Blink 182 t-shirt. Must stop buying things.

Cacoethes 12-12-2022 07:00 PM

Hey everyone!
Back from work!

nonperson 12-12-2022 07:23 PM

T-shirts are worth buying. It's nice to treat yourself to new things, Lindsay.

Cacoethes 12-12-2022 07:50 PM

^ I agree

not_so_insig 12-12-2022 08:51 PM

I have been for my coronavirus jab and I posted Lorraine's present. Hopefully it will arrive as there's royal mail strikes this week. Plus nurse's strike. My cpn is coming tomorrow so I won't be going out tomorrow. Plus I have amazon.

Zurg 12-12-2022 09:21 PM

Evening all :)

Beckie, i completely forgot to ask this so… How is Merry and Pippin doing???

How is everyone elses's pet(s) doing??? :D

Bonus info: i'm eating caramels covered in chocolate. Yum!!!

Cacoethes 12-12-2022 09:25 PM

They are great thanks!
Jasmine came over yesterday and now wants guinea pigs XD

Ooohh yummy!

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 08:16 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 13-12-2022 10:41 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Zurg 13-12-2022 11:02 AM

Hi Tamo and Beckie :)
How are you both?

It sure is cold this morning!!!

one_step_closer 13-12-2022 11:38 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

I've just read that you still need to open your windows in winter to avoid mould and condensation. It's too cold for that! I keep having to top up my gas so often.

Today I need to pick up a parcel and then go to the gym group, need to time it right so I'm not hugely early for the gym group.

What's everyone else getting up to?

Zurg 13-12-2022 12:02 PM

Hi Lindsay.
Yeah, the damp in my Windows has never been as bad as this winter. I tried cleaning it off yesterday and used an anti mould spray. Ideally i Think i should do it every day as long as these temperatures persist but i don't have that kind of energy….

I want to let in some fresh Air now and then but i end up closing the door and Windows after 5 minutes. My birds don't handle cold well so i need to be sure they won't be too cooled off. And of course my snail, snailzilla requires constant heating (she's a very delicate lady!!!)

Boo to gym group!!!! Or just gym.

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 12:06 PM

I've never had to deal with any damp or mould thankfully!

It is cold. I was at the gym this morning.

I ripped off a nail when i was putting the washing in and now I'm upset :(
It's bleeding a lot. Now gonna have to see if my nail lady can fit me in for a fix before xmas! She's super busy though!

tamobhuuta 13-12-2022 12:11 PM

My mum visited :) and I think I have ward rounds :(

not_so_insig 13-12-2022 12:34 PM

Morning all. I am finding that my bedroom windows condensation is worse this year too zurg. Like you say Lindsay it's way too cold to be opening windows.

I am waiting for amazon. Hopefully they will come with all my packages. Apart from a dead arm I am ok after my jab. My cpn is coming later to jab me too.

Zurg 13-12-2022 01:51 PM

That's a lot of poking for one day, Dawn!!! Someone should reward you with cake.

I hope the ward round Will be okay, Tamo.

And i recommend a band aid, Beckie. Screw that!!! TEN band aids!! It is Christmas, after all :P

not_so_insig 13-12-2022 02:37 PM

Band aid is a name of a charity group of singers that sang a Christmas song about Africa here in the UK zurg. Now I have feed the world going around in my head.

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 02:59 PM

Nah it's fine! It would just come off anyway!
I have a split in my thumb which is far more annoying and painful!

not_so_insig 13-12-2022 03:20 PM

Amazon have been. Got everything that I ordered. I am now going for a shower and making myself a hot chocolate because it's very cold despite having the heating on. Plus I have to tidy my flat before my cpn arrives.

one_step_closer 13-12-2022 06:00 PM

Anyone doing much this evening?

I've got a delivery coming somewhere between 6.30pm and 8.30pm so I can't get into my PJs and numerous layers until it's been.

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 06:57 PM

I also have a delivery coming. But it just says 'before 10pm'.
I also have glow beatz. The delivery is alcohol so I'm not sure if they'll be able to leave it in the usual spot if I'm out!
I had gym this morning, been to asda and put washing away. I don't feel like I've been all that productive though. I also had 2 appointments but one was phone and one was zoom so i don't think they really count as doing things.

Zurg 13-12-2022 06:58 PM

I have often recieved parcels wearing PJ’s and a robe. I occassionally also wear my morning robe in the day. It is quite comfy and handy when i take out the trash and it's cold outside :)

I've had a shower. Put on comfy clothes. I am soooo ready for a coffee!!!

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 07:16 PM

Yeah tbh i receive deliveries in PJs too.
I doubt the person even notices! Especially this time of year when it's dark and cold and busy!

Zurg 13-12-2022 07:26 PM

Better to be in pj's than being naked o_o

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 07:27 PM

Very true!

nonperson 13-12-2022 07:29 PM

Random question Beckie - is your alcohol delivery from Amazon?

Cacoethes 13-12-2022 08:12 PM

Yes it is!

nonperson 13-12-2022 08:59 PM

Ah. They're not allowed to just leave it like usual. I had a mare with an Amazon driver yesterday for not being home and not planning on being home and he wouldn't deliver to a difference address!
