Thanks Lindsay.

one_step_closer 12-05-2020 06:01 PM

What's everyone having for dinner? I had a boring salad.

Cacoethes 12-05-2020 06:22 PM

I had steak stew with dumplings
Was ok

chinahorse 12-05-2020 06:46 PM

Salad is dull!

I'm having pizza. In the oven now:-)

Cacoethes 12-05-2020 08:44 PM

Jealous!

tamobhuuta 12-05-2020 08:47 PM

My mum made a chick pea curry, it was good.

Mmm pizza, what flavour?

Ophiuchus 12-05-2020 09:17 PM

Well, Detroit: Become Human doesn't want to work past the end of the second chapter, so that sucks worse than a 1,000 year old vacuum cleaner.

But I'm playing Control which is weird and vaguely creepy and has an excellent soundtrack.
So, silver linings.

You're all making me hungry, btw.
And I've eaten already.

one_step_closer 13-05-2020 10:57 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 11:57 AM

Hi osc! How are you? I'm doing ok, had a good sleep.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 12:21 PM

Hey guys :-)
Anyone up to much?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 01:38 PM

Hi china.I'm ok, promised my mum I would do some dusting. How are you?

chinahorse 13-05-2020 02:14 PM

Dusting is a boring job.

I'm crocheting and watching Moana.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 02:16 PM

Dusting is fine, it's hoovering that sucks.

one_step_closer 13-05-2020 03:22 PM

I don't actually know the best way to get rid of dust. Dry cloth? Wet cloth?

chinahorse 13-05-2020 03:24 PM

Damp cloth. Traps the dust :)

one_step_closer 13-05-2020 03:35 PM

Thank you Lillie. :thumbup:

I hoovered today and have been out for a walk.

Has anyone got plans for the rest of the day?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 03:52 PM

I use a feather duster and a dry cloth.

not_so_insig 13-05-2020 04:53 PM

I use a dry cloth unless it's glass. Then I use windolene.

I have been for a walk to the next village via the park at the bottom of the road. I woke up with cramp this morning so the exercise helped my leg.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 06:02 PM

I missed Doctors so I'm hoping to watch it now.

one_step_closer 13-05-2020 06:06 PM

Oh no, all the options of dusting! I'll have to try them all and report back.

Did you enjoy your walk Dawn? What's the weather like?

I hope you get to watch Doctors Tamo.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 06:31 PM

Glad the walk helped Dawn.

Hope you get to watch it tamo.

Haha thatllkeep you busy lindsay.

I have cooked dinner and did the dusting while I was waiting. As its pertinent to this conversation I use antibacterial spray and a damp cloth. But doing that and washing up has ruined my nail varnish.

nonperson 13-05-2020 07:41 PM

Antibac spray and sanitiser are ruining my hands. =(

tamobhuuta 13-05-2020 07:50 PM

My hands are dry just because of normal soap.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 08:12 PM

You have to use something decent like E45 every time you wash your hands when you wash them a lot. I also very very rarely sanitize and will wash, dry and moisturise instead. Only way I've found to keep your hand from cracking. And I wash my hands a lot at work. At least 4 times an hour usually.

nonperson 13-05-2020 08:13 PM

Yeah same really! Plus my hands often get wet at work and that dries them out too.

nonperson 13-05-2020 08:15 PM

Moisturiser doesn't stay on my hands at work really. Plus can't use it when touching some things. I'm going to cake my hands with special vaseline stuff now though and be slippery all evening.

nonperson 13-05-2020 08:16 PM

Will eat more chocolate first though.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 08:16 PM

Livestock barrier creams like those for cow udders are meant to be fantastic. Not tried it myself. Dont waste money in that o Keefe stuff. Burna due to the urea and doesnt work any better than any bog standard emollient.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 08:17 PM

Can you not wear gloves at work?

nonperson 13-05-2020 08:22 PM

I wear fabric gloves for some things but they're too thick for everything. And the plastic ones make.my hands sweaty and gross.

Weirdly some of the barrier creams actually have a bad effect on young plants so I don't want to risk using that, touching things and then having it all die, lol.

not_so_insig 13-05-2020 08:30 PM

I did enjoy my walk thanks. The weather has been warm with a slight breeze here today. I sat on the bench (the benches are more than 2 metres apart) and listened to the local clock striking.

chinahorse 13-05-2020 08:34 PM

Ah fair enough np. And lol I'm loving the world moaning about how sweaty and uncomfortable full PPE is. Welcome to my life. Was funny having CPN jn my house yesterday in full PPE. Suppose it was just out of context?

Was thinking more a barrier cream to put on overnight?

nonperson 13-05-2020 08:48 PM

Oh yeah I really should.make more of an effort to put it on overnight.

Yeah I quite often have to wear full PPE and respirators and a full plastic suit to spray chemicals in summer so I also know how awful it all is. Definitely would be weird seeing someone like that in your house though!

chinahorse 13-05-2020 09:10 PM

Plastic suit sounds hideous!

At least my actual uniform is a lot like wearing pjs and slippers.

nonperson 13-05-2020 09:19 PM

Ooh sounds comfy!

Yes the plastic suits aren't the best. We had bright yellow ones once, it was like being a baked banana, hehe.

one_step_closer 13-05-2020 09:19 PM

Crookshanks licks the emollient off my hands so I only get to use it in bed at night.

I think seeing my CPN in full PPE might upset me.

nonperson 13-05-2020 09:31 PM

Mmm, that can't taste very nice.

PPE can definitely look really shocking, especially if it's not something you're used to seeing.

Cacoethes 13-05-2020 09:55 PM

There were guys in full PPE doing temperature checks at Venice airport when I went early February. Back to Gatwick and absolutely nothing!

nonperson 13-05-2020 10:09 PM

And nothing at all like that when I went to the US in late Feb or flying back to Heathrow. It just hadn't got that bad in the UK at that point, I guess.

Cacoethes 13-05-2020 11:20 PM

I suppose so
They should have at least had something though
All they had were posters saying if you'd been to China recently then let them know! And the signs were just printed off and only in English

tamobhuuta 14-05-2020 09:59 AM

Good morning people. I would have had an excellent night but woke up needing the loo. But I got to hear an owl!

chinahorse 14-05-2020 10:05 AM

Owls are such amazing animals.

one_step_closer 14-05-2020 10:57 AM

Aww owl <3 Do owls live everywhere? Stupid question.

Morning everyone.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2020 10:59 AM

I don't know osc. Maybe a question for Google.

one_step_closer 14-05-2020 11:01 AM

What are you going to be doing today Tamo?

tamobhuuta 14-05-2020 11:04 AM

Not much, my CPN texted me this morning do ask if he could call, I said yes. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 14-05-2020 11:20 AM

Morning everyone
I was woken up by the cleaners wanting to come in
Also the psychology assistant and I have an appointment with the psychologist at 1pm. A video call apparently

tamobhuuta 14-05-2020 11:59 AM

I hope the phone call is helpful Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 14-05-2020 12:04 PM

Thanks :)

tamobhuuta 14-05-2020 01:13 PM

I wish my CPN would call!
