No plans just taking things very easy.

not_so_insig 23-05-2023 02:32 PM

I saw it on Facebook but I know that not everyone has Facebook or sees the same things as me. Just in case someone thought it was a mistake save phoning the dwp. Or doesn't do online banking.

not_so_insig 23-05-2023 02:36 PM

Oh and while I remember Doctors is on next Tuesday tamobhuuta. It's only the Monday and Friday it's not going to be on next week.

tamobhuuta 23-05-2023 02:42 PM

Excellent news. I think it's a shame they never do Fridays. I suppose they can't afford it?

not_so_insig 23-05-2023 02:46 PM

Yes it seems the vast majority of the BBC's daytime schedule is repeats. I have given up on the Broken Biscuit Company during the day.

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 03:25 PM

Hey guys! I've had blood test now waiting at starbucks for my mum to finish her gym class!
Have they always sold beer at starbucks??

not_so_insig 23-05-2023 03:29 PM

I dont know as I have only ever been in Starbucks once and that was at a ryl meet about 20 years ago.

tamobhuuta 23-05-2023 03:29 PM

I didn't know they did that!

long road 23-05-2023 03:35 PM

I have never seen a Starbucks selling beer. Although if it's at a train station maybe that is why? Because people are allowed to drink beer on trains so target market and all that?

Well done on getting your bloods done.

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 03:38 PM

There are 3 different types of beer in bottles!
I guess aimed at commuters on the way home or the weekend crowd.


tamobhuuta 23-05-2023 05:03 PM

Beers in Starbucks is weird.

I've been watching doctor who. Clara still annoys me but my brother assures me the next companion is better.

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 05:53 PM

Hey all. I don't know what to say! Just hello (which autocorrect changed to help which could also be relevant).

I really like Peter Capaldi's second companion.

I am not really with it today.
Sounds like you aren't having the best day either if help would also be relevant.

not_so_insig 23-05-2023 06:03 PM

Hope you're well Jen and Lindsay.

Jen I think that I have friend requested you on Facebook.

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 06:07 PM

Sorry you're not doing great too, Jen. I hope you're managing ok.

long road 23-05-2023 06:09 PM

Eh I am not managing well but not not managing at all.
Going to lie down again for a bit I think.

I shall check Facebook at some point Dawn. I do only go on there once a week at most these days though and rarely post anything.

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 06:12 PM

Take care, Jen. Do what safe things you need to do.

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 06:29 PM

Hope everyone feels better soon!

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 06:37 PM

Thanks. How are things with you today, Beckie?

long road 23-05-2023 06:41 PM

Thanks Lindsay and Beckie. I am sure I will be back to my normal in a day or two. Just got to try not to let how I am feeling physically in that time to take me too far down mentally. Which is easier said than done but I am trying.

Ahimsa 23-05-2023 06:42 PM

Evening all.

I'm sorry things are tough

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 06:52 PM

Hi, Beth. How are you doing today?

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 06:58 PM

I'm ok thanks.
Though a bit sick of the dogs barking already! And I've only been here a few hours!

Just try and remember what an excellent weekend you had Jen and how well you did!
There's bound to be some fallout from it.

Hi beth! How are you?

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 07:03 PM

Oh no, are they very vocal? Hopefully you'll get used to it.

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 07:05 PM

They bark at EVERYTHING!
Even the horses in the field behind the garden, that have been there their entire lives....and birds...and also they bark at absolutely nothing sometimes. When it's pitch black outside and they couldn't possibly see anything :plain:

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 07:07 PM

Annoying. I'm glad Crookshanks doesn't bark!

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 07:23 PM

It's incredibly annoying.
I'm sure I'll learn to live with it! Kind of have to lol

nonperson 23-05-2023 07:23 PM

What kind of dogs are they, Beckie?

My neighbours chihuahuas bark at me all the time.

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 07:47 PM

A giant schnauzer and a blue merle welsh border collie!

A chihuahua would annoy me. At least mum's dogs aren't high pitched and yappy!

nonperson 23-05-2023 07:54 PM

Oooh nice mix.

They're ok once you get to know them but yeah, not my dog of choice either!

Ahimsa 23-05-2023 08:06 PM

What are they called Beckie?

Pi.R^2 23-05-2023 09:13 PM

Evening gang!
Any news or fun facts?

one_step_closer 23-05-2023 09:15 PM

Hey Jenna. I have no news or fun facts unfortunately. I'm just popping on quickly before no screens time. How has your day been?

long road 23-05-2023 09:32 PM

A person on you tube made a living car by covering their car in Chia seeds and letting them sprout.

Is that a fun fact?

Cacoethes 23-05-2023 09:40 PM

They are called charley and sparkles!
Jasmine named sparkles when she was a toddler.

Fun fact: when you try and decant porridge from a massive bag into a smaller bag, it makes a mess, no matter how careful you are! :tongue2:

Pi.R^2 23-05-2023 09:41 PM

Jen that’s a wild fact!
Beckie lol :P.

Pi.R^2 23-05-2023 09:42 PM

Lindsay, my day was a rollercoaster but one nice bit was getting a lovely thank you card :)

Apologies for not fulfilling the assignment as my fact was wild not fun :p

He he he, I am imagining you have to shout sparkles while out dog walking. Is sparkles the collie or the schnauzer?

Cacoethes 24-05-2023 06:52 AM

Sparkles is the collie!
It's a small community so i think everyone is used to the name being shouted now!

Morning everyone!
The fam left at 2:30am so I've put some music on the alexa and trying to remember everything i have to do XD

Pi.R^2 24-05-2023 07:30 AM

Morning Beckie!
Do you have a list of tasks?

Cacoethes 24-05-2023 07:53 AM


I do!
I think I've done most of them so far. Given dogs breakfast, given charley her meds, let chickens out. Just need to get dogs raw food out to defrost and fly spray the feral horses that don't like fly spray....that's gonna be fun....
And water the plants that are not planted yet. And give the dogs a run around in the field.
Currently sitting in the garden with a cup of tea. It's so nice out! It's actually been raining in Spain for about a week, so they might as well have stayed here XD

Are you at work today?

long road 24-05-2023 10:11 AM


I keep waking up naturally earlier and earlier. Woke up at 8:30am today when even a few weeks ago I would struggle to wake up before my alarm at 10:30am. I guess my routine is working in that regard but I am still not falling asleep until 1am at the earliest 2am, 3am more likely.

It's sunny here too. Who needs Spain eh? Good luck with the horses. Do you have eggs to collect this morning? You could enjoy some for breakfast or lunch.

Cacoethes 24-05-2023 10:26 AM

Hopefully with the earlier mornings, you'll feel more tired earlier too!

There were no eggs this morning but mum already has plenty.
And some lovely seeded bread, which is my favourite bread. So maybe an egg sandwich for lunch!
The dogs keep sighing, like their life is so taxing XD

Have you got much planned for today?

tamobhuuta 24-05-2023 11:01 AM

Morning guys. Egg sandwich sounds yum. It's beautiful here.

long road 24-05-2023 11:04 AM

Alas I usually use up some of that tiredness by succumbing to a nap sometime in the early afternoon...

Egg Sandwich sounds good.

Not masses planned. Heading out for a coffee in the garden shortly and then this afternoon partner's sister is visiting. We get on really well so it should be a nice afternoon. And then this evening roleplaying of I am up for it.

tamobhuuta 24-05-2023 11:06 AM

That sounds like a nice day :)

Cacoethes 24-05-2023 11:09 AM

Nap is a tough one!
On one hand, you need a nap because of physical health, on the other, it doesn't help the sleep issue! Tricky.

Sounds like a nice day jen.

Hi tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 24-05-2023 11:15 AM

I am ok but anxious. Standard.

not_so_insig 24-05-2023 11:15 AM

Morning all.
