Hopefully that means the boiler will be fixed quickly then.

Hey Lindsay. Hope you can have a good day too.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 11:17 AM

Morning lindsay
Hope you have a good day too!


tamobhuuta 30-01-2021 11:42 AM

Hello all x

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 11:44 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

Grrr I could have done asda by now and he still hasn't turned up!

not_so_insig 30-01-2021 01:41 PM

Hopefully he has turned up by now Beckie.

I have snow! Fortunately it's minor and certainly not as bad as last weekend so fingers crossed I will have my tesco order on Tuesday.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 01:50 PM

He has! I'm getting my new boiler on Monday or Tuesday :)
I've been to asda and got shreddies and an easter egg (and other stuff but those were the fun things)

Hopefully it won't get too bad Dawn!
We had a teeny bit of snow but its turned to rain now

not_so_insig 30-01-2021 01:56 PM

I am hoping for rain tomorrow too. It's only essentials so it won't matter too much if I don't have my tesco shopping order. Including easter eggs because they're essential right?

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 02:09 PM

Easter eggs are totally essential!

one_step_closer 30-01-2021 02:20 PM

I have an Easter egg coming in my Asda delivery this evening.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 02:24 PM

Easter eggs for all!

nonperson 30-01-2021 02:30 PM

I'll have to get one tonight so as not to feel left out. =P

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 02:40 PM

Yes you will np!

tamobhuuta 30-01-2021 06:44 PM

I Want An Easter Egg.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 06:57 PM

You should get one tamo!

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 11:32 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 11:49 AM

Morning lindsay
I'm ok
Was woken up by carers at 9:30 but went back to bed!

How are you?

nonperson 31-01-2021 12:23 PM

Afternoon people.

I somehow was organised enough this morning to get to Tesco for 10 minutes past opening. It wasn't too busy. Weird driving there in the daylight though.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 12:29 PM

Afternoon np

Well done for getting to tesco!
Did you get everything you need?

nonperson 31-01-2021 12:33 PM

Yup, didn't need a lot so it was quick.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 12:37 PM

Good good!

Have you got much planned for the rest of the day?

nonperson 31-01-2021 12:53 PM

Nope, just laundry and trying to avoid thinking about going back to work tomorrow. =(

What about you?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 12:57 PM

Aww no, work :(

I really have to at least look at the OU stuff!
Course officially starts today and I have done no reading at all.
It's a module I really don't want to do but have to. Statistics. Ugh

nonperson 31-01-2021 01:03 PM

Yeah, work. x.x

Erf, I remember doing statistics for my degree! It's definitely not the most exciting of modules.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 01:16 PM

It really isn't.
And I hate anything vaguely maths-like.

nonperson 31-01-2021 01:34 PM

I used to find maths quite methodical and easy. I think now it would give me a complete mental and physical meltdown... =/

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 01:39 PM

That's what it does to me!
I hate maths with a passion!
I can do it if I try.
My mum said it's because I found everything else really easy at school (I did) but maths I couldn't do straight away so it sent me into a panic!

nonperson 31-01-2021 02:01 PM

Well you've got time to get your head round it now so hopefully that will help.

Are you just doing the one module?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 02:03 PM

Yes that is true!

Yes I am because this is the only module I need to complete my first year.
I usually do 2 modules.

nonperson 31-01-2021 02:24 PM

That's probably a good thing, like being able to focus on just one difficult module and get it out of the way without the stress of a second one too.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 02:33 PM

That's a very good point!

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 03:13 PM

I'm glad you're getting back into your course Beckie. Statistics is a lovely way to start back!

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 03:19 PM

Thanks lindsay :)
Haha, yes indeed...

How are you today?

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 04:12 PM

Low and hopeless.

How's your day going?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 04:16 PM

I wish there was something I could do to help. I really do <3

Not bad thanks. Still haven't got any studying done but I've made great progress on pokemon platinum :p

nonperson 31-01-2021 04:53 PM

Is it too early for dinner discussion?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 04:55 PM


nonperson 31-01-2021 04:57 PM

Good! What's on everyone's plates tonight then?

not_so_insig 31-01-2021 05:08 PM

I had chilli and rice for my tea

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:10 PM

I totally approve of that meal, Dawn. =)

My tv just turned itself on... o.O

not_so_insig 31-01-2021 05:12 PM

Spooky nonperson!

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:14 PM

Actually I think it was in a sort of standby mode and just re-woke itself, which isn't so spooky after all. Freaked me out though!

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:17 PM

That's what my old TV did when it was breaking!
Very creepy at 3am!

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:20 PM

Eek, yes I can imagine!

Luckily this was Nowtv so it just started up with the home screen thing. It's gone a bit wonky with its screensaver settings lately, so just goes black if I don't select something else to watch. That's why I assumed it was off.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:28 PM

Ah ok!
That makes sense

I don't know what to have for dinner
I don't have much in because I was too excited about easter eggs and shreddies to remember to get most other things!

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:30 PM

Haha. I dunno, I think you just listed two very good ingredients for dinner right there. =P

I also don't know what to have.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:33 PM

Haha! True!

Did you get nice things in your shop today?

My nanny has just called to tell me she's randomly deposited 200 in my account to cheer me up.
Very grateful and it has indeed cheered me up!

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:38 PM

Oh that's lovely of her! Going to treat yourself?

My shop wasn't that nice. Mostly just sandwich things and cereal bars for work.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:43 PM

Yes I think so!

Ah ok. That's disappointing!

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:48 PM

Did you treat yourself to a dress before with her money?

I was sent plenty of nice food things during the week though.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 06:03 PM


Oh that's good.
