Morning Beckie how are you? Did Jasmine have a good time yesterday with you?

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 11:06 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Yes we had a nice time :)

How was your day?

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 11:08 AM

It was good thanks. Any plans for today?

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 11:44 AM

Just had a late breakfast. No solid plans!
I think mum is going to drive me home around 2. She doesn't want to be driving in the dark!

It is absolutely boiling! Their house is an 'eco house' which means it just retains heat. One side of the house is all floor to ceiling windows!
It was 26C upstairs this morning and mum said that was cold! Genuinely feels like a summers day.

You got any plans today?

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 11:52 AM

I have just washed and dried my hair. I have my aunt and uncle coming later. A bit anxious about them coming though.

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 12:14 PM

Hope it will be ok
I was anxious about Christmas but it turned out ok

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 01:05 PM

Thanks xxx

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 02:28 PM

I am home!
Have enjoyed Christmas but it's nice to be alone again!

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 02:33 PM

I'm home for a few hours. The house is so cold compared to the ward! I'm wearing 4 layers and I'm under the super floofy blanket my brother gave me for Christmas.

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 03:08 PM

Welcome home both of you!

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 03:38 PM

Thanks dawn!

I've just been to asda. Town is obviously empty as the only thing open is asda! And the phone shop. Random!

How is it going with your aunt and uncle? Or is that later?

I got a new blanket for Christmas too! A sherpa fleece one.

one_step_closer 26-12-2022 03:48 PM

Hey, I hope Christmas is going well for you all. Reporting that we have a white Boxing Day here.

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 03:51 PM

Yay for snow! Apparently some places had snow yesterday.

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 03:57 PM

So very nearly a white Christmas!

There was a random patch of slush on the train station bridge! It's not left over from the other week because it wasn't there the other day! Very odd.

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 06:20 PM

Hmmm odd!

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 06:35 PM

It was rather!

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 10:18 PM

No snow here. It's been dry and not too cold.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 08:51 AM

Morning everyone!

Pi.R^2 27-12-2022 09:26 AM

Morning! How are you today Beckie?

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 09:37 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Taking the boys to have their nails clipped today.
It's only a 25 min walk but feels much longer because they are so heavy!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 10:15 AM

Hello :)
Have fun at the vet Cacoethes!
How are you Pi?

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 10:19 AM


Have you got anything planned for today?

Pi.R^2 27-12-2022 11:46 AM

Beckie, I'm a lazy car owner so 25 minutes walk even without carrying guinea pigs sounds like a big effort to me =P Hope the vet trip goes well!

How are you tamo?

I have Christmas part III today as my sister is coming up with her boyfriend.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 12:36 PM

A lot of people who drive have said 'i can't imagine walking that far!'
When really it's not that bad!

I am home. The boys were perfectly behaved and we were in and out in minutes! I really thought pippin would be his usual drama queen self! But nope. Both stayed perfectly still!

I hope you enjoy Christmas part III!

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 01:17 PM

Hi everyone. I read that the met office is recording a 'technical white Christmas' due to snow flurries. It's icy and rainy here today but we still have weather warnings for ice and snow soon.

I'm glad your fluffies were well behaved at the vet, Beckie. I hope your arms aren't sore after carrying them for so long. I've never thought of guinea pigs being heavy. It's about a 25 minute walk from my house to Tesco so it can be difficult with heavy bags but I always walk there and back unless I have cat litter, then I get the bus back.

How's your day going, Tamo?

Christmas part III! I hope it's a good one, Jenna.

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 01:21 PM

Afternoon all. Why is tv so ***** over the Christmas? Just films which a) they have been on the telly before (in some cases every year) and more importantly b) i dont have the concentration for films. Might see what is on the streaming services.

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 01:25 PM

Hi Dawn, I hope you find something good to watch. I hate Christmas TV but I have an indoor aerial and it doesn't work in this weather so I have to use catch up TV players. When my brother was over he was on Netflix constantly. I've had enough of Christmas TV.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 01:29 PM

My boys are especially big!
Not overweight, but you can tell they love their food! Lol
Especially pippin. He's bigger than Merry!

Yeah i don't blame you getting the bus! Cat litter is heavy!

I haven't found the tv to be too bad.
I do like kids films though

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 01:29 PM

Yeah I have had enough of Christmas tv too. I have noticed that if it's not films then it's repeats.

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 01:33 PM

I've had enough of Christmas full stop! (yes I know that's an exclamation mark not a full stop :-D )

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 02:15 PM

Well, it's all over now!
Only about another week and things will be back to normal!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 02:47 PM

For me Christmas isn't over until Epiphany, the 6th of January.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 03:10 PM

Is that a religion thing?

I'm feeling snacky. But i have no snacks :(
I don't think i can be bothered to go to asda!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 03:27 PM

Yes, that's when we celebrate the three wise men coming to see the baby Jesus.

Think of all that lovely fresh air!

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 03:28 PM

Ohh cool!
Do you do anything to mark the day?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 04:02 PM

A nice dinner, mince pies etc

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 04:11 PM

Did you not have any food for Christmas Beckie? I got some biscuits and chocolates.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 04:17 PM

Sounds nice tamo!

Not really. I'm not usually big on snacks.
And things like selection boxes and boxes of chocolates are so expensive for what they are!

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 04:25 PM

Oh that's a shame.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 04:36 PM

Yeah. Sadly just can't justify 4 on chocolate!
Could get several meals for that! Lol

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 04:39 PM

I'm also feeling snacky. Shouldn't have eaten all my chocolate gifts so quickly. I've ordered from Asda arriving tomorrow.

Dawn you are making me want biscuits!

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 04:47 PM

If i had money, I'd probably order from asda on ubereats! Feeling very lazy lol

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 04:53 PM

Will you be able to go to Asda tomorrow? It's ok to be lazy especially at this time of the year.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 05:15 PM

I have work tomorrow but I will probably go before work. Definitely won't feel like going afterwards, no matter how much I intend to!

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 06:02 PM

If I was working I'd be the same. I hope you make it to Asda before work and get everything you need/want. What are you doing this evening?

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 06:13 PM

I'm sure I will!

I'm just chilling.
Just showered and put washing away.

How about you?

Pi.R^2 27-12-2022 11:24 PM

I like the expression ‘feeling snacky’ and will be adopting it going forward as i am very often feeling snacky!

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 08:59 AM

Tis a good expression!

Morning everyone!

Zurg 28-12-2022 10:17 AM

Morning Beckie :)

How are you today?

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 10:41 AM

Not bad thanks!
Just back from asda. Leaving for work soon. Boooo!

How are you?
