I wish I had went out earlier on, I'm not used to being inside all day.

I'm just putting up with the TV on till my brother heads home.

tamobhuuta 26-12-2019 06:09 PM

TV is a lifesaver

Indigo. 26-12-2019 06:10 PM

I'm sorry the weather is obstructing your plans Lindsay and Tamo.

I'm reading a Harry Potter advent fanfic. I've read it before and it's really sweet. It has 70K words so it should keep me busy for a while!

tamobhuuta 26-12-2019 06:13 PM

That sounds fun!

My grandmother got me an illustrated version of the Goblet of Fire for Christmas.

one_step_closer 26-12-2019 06:14 PM

70k words sounds like a huge amount!

tamobhuuta 26-12-2019 06:15 PM

That's like a whole novel!

Indigo. 26-12-2019 06:27 PM

I love this kind of fanfiction that is basically a novel-length story and just so well written and engaging! There are quite a few Harry Potter ones like this.

Tamo, that sounds lovely :)

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 06:48 PM

That's a lot of words!

That's nice tamo :)

I'm watching ratatouille

tamobhuuta 26-12-2019 06:58 PM

Is it good Cacoethes?

Indigo. 26-12-2019 07:04 PM

Ratatouille is a lot of fun!

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 07:04 PM

Yep it is!

one_step_closer 26-12-2019 08:16 PM

Me and my brother were watching it too. He has left now so I've switched the TV off. Peace!

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 08:17 PM

Glad you're getting some peace now!
Can be hard when people are over and you can't do what you want

one_step_closer 26-12-2019 08:20 PM

Yeah it is. I think I was a rubbish host too because I mostly just let him do whatever he wanted, although he doesn't like Christmas so I was trying not to put any pressure on him.

What are you getting up to now Beckie?

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 08:26 PM

I'm sure you were fine. Sounds like you did what was right for him

I'm just watching TV and waiting for bed time

Indigo. 26-12-2019 08:29 PM

Glad you can get some peace & time to yourself Lindsay. It sounds like you were conscious of your brothers needs X

I am also waiting for bedtime. I felt close to falling asleep earlier but now I'm awake again.

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 08:31 PM

I'm not really tired
Just fed up of being awake!

Indigo. 26-12-2019 09:26 PM

Same! Don't have a lot of ability to focus rn.

Cacoethes 26-12-2019 09:37 PM

Me too
I'm off to bed now
Night all!

not_so_insig 26-12-2019 09:50 PM

Same here. There's naff all on the telly.

Indigo. 26-12-2019 09:55 PM

Night Beckie!

I'm having some tea & some food now, hopefully it'll help me feel more sleepy!

Buttons. 26-12-2019 10:14 PM

Tea and food sounds good Indigo what are you having to eat?

I’m tried to figure out how even in a double bed my dog has managed to steal the majority of the bed space -_-

Indigo. 26-12-2019 10:32 PM

I'm having cheese and crackers! I rarely eat cheese (lactose intolerance) so it's great to have some (I have meds thankfully).

Buttons, that's cute but I bet rather annoying. I remember a few years ago, it was super cold & my dog just took my blanket off me in my sleep and wrapped himself in it! XD

Eska 27-12-2019 07:22 AM

Morning everyone :) Buttons I hope you managed to reclaim enough space to sleep ok!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2019 10:05 AM

Good morning :) another lie in for me . I hope you all slept ok

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 10:18 AM

Morning guys

chinahorse 27-12-2019 11:41 AM

Morning. My friend and I had a super long lie in and are watching a film.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 11:50 AM

Which film Lillie?
Hope you enjoy it!

chinahorse 27-12-2019 11:59 AM

Little.
It seems okay.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 12:04 PM

I went to see that in the cinema
It was ok!

chinahorse 27-12-2019 12:09 PM

It's too cringey for me to be enjoying.

Indigo. 27-12-2019 12:35 PM

Hi all. I've also had a lie in.

I haven't seen that film Lillie, sorry you're not enjoying it.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 12:54 PM

That's a shame Lillie

Hi Lucy

Indigo. 27-12-2019 01:02 PM

Hey Beckie. How are you? X

Today is weird and foggy/drizzly.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 01:14 PM

I'm a bit blah
Will be ok though!

It seems to be ok here
Are you going to the shop today?

Indigo. 27-12-2019 01:16 PM

Same here Beckie *hugs*

I am going to the shop, yes. I think I'll manage it today!

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 01:36 PM

Thank you *hugs back*

Good good!
I also need to go to the shop

Indigo. 27-12-2019 01:46 PM

How I wish the shop would come to me! But that wouldn't work for buying like three things.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 02:12 PM

You could get a delivery, but not for 3 things!

one_step_closer 27-12-2019 02:39 PM

Some places have those things like Uber for going to corner shops or something, right?

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 02:48 PM

Not a clue lindsay!
Nothing like that in my area anyway.
We don't even have uber

Indigo. 27-12-2019 02:59 PM

We don't have Uber either(we have Uber Eats though).

My uncle came to visit from London and was very confused by the lack of Uber! Taxis are a thing though. But it literally takes me 2 minutes to walk to the shop. I specifically chose this location so it wouldn't be too difficult to go to the shop if I need to, just need more motivation!

one_step_closer 27-12-2019 03:09 PM

There's nothing like that in my area either.

Motivation is hard to find!

not_so_insig 27-12-2019 03:35 PM

I dont have uber, uber eats or deliveroo where I live. But I do have papa John's and Domino's.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 03:55 PM

We don't have ubereats.
And the only things on JustEat are about 8 Indian takeaways.
We do have a dominoes though

Motivation is hard to find, I agree!

Indigo. 27-12-2019 04:00 PM

I live in a fairly large (for Wales!) city with maybe three universities, and I suspect this is the reason for Uber Eats. A lot of potential for students to order, you know? I think you can even order McDonald's through it!

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 04:07 PM

That would make sense!
We've only recently got a McDonald's and it's up at the retail park, not the town centre so I don't bother with it. Uber eats would be useful!

not_so_insig 27-12-2019 04:11 PM

I have zoom which has KFC.

tamobhuuta 27-12-2019 04:17 PM

We only have Indian or Chinese takeaway and we always go to our favourites straight, not using ubereats.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 04:31 PM

There's lots of takeaways in the town and some do deliver but you have to call up and pay cash which I won't do!
