I have received a free sample of shower gel in the post today. Wasn't expecting it. Guess that means I have to have a shower now but you know effort.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 11:09 AM

My boiler appears to have packed in so I only get hot water for about a minute before it turns freezing cold
Showering has been most unpleasant lately!

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 11:35 AM

Showering is soooo much effort.

not_so_insig 19-09-2020 01:53 PM

I had a shower with my new shower gel. It didn't smell of anything and it was the same colour as my toothpaste. Let's hope I don't get the two mixed up.

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 01:57 PM

That's a shame

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 06:43 PM

L and my sister went to buy coffee capsules and they brought me back a Costa. Good times.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 07:33 PM

I've just got back
We had a barbecue!

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 08:11 PM

Nice one.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 08:26 PM

Even though it was sausage roulette as the chilli ones were put on with the normal ones and I can't deal with spice!
But I didn't get a chilli one.
Bit of excitement for the day there :p

nonperson 19-09-2020 09:44 PM

Sausage roulette XD

tamobhuuta 20-09-2020 10:32 AM

Guten morgen alles! (I'm feeling German today)

nonperson 20-09-2020 10:40 AM

That's sort of apt as I'm watching a programme about WW2 at the moment. =x

Morning Tamo. How're you today?

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 10:58 AM

Morning guys
The crisis team very rudely woke me up so I am up now

nonperson 20-09-2020 11:05 AM

Don't they know Sundays are for sleeping in? =(

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 11:19 AM

Tbf I did lie in for quite a while anyway but still! I was woken up!

tamobhuuta 20-09-2020 12:00 PM

I got up at 10am and I'm still in my pyjamas.

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 12:02 PM

I always have to get dressed after waking up.
I don't know why!

nonperson 20-09-2020 12:45 PM

I often do a half dressed/half pyjamas combo.

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 12:50 PM

Why the hell not?!

I forgot to mention one of our activities yesterday.
We found an old video camera and plugged it into the TV and watched some videos from the ancient year 2000! It was hilarious and cringey!

nonperson 20-09-2020 01:06 PM

Oh my, that is quite some time ago! What were you doing in the videos?

But aww, Y2K... the year of me leaving school and starting college and discovering my "alternative" look... and the millennium bug that didn't happen. I'm glad my family didn't have a camcorder.

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 01:11 PM

The ones we watched were Christmas. I would have been around 9 years old!
We were just doing general kid things. And my little bros birthday is Christmas day so birthday things for him. And mum correcting his grammar at 2 years old! Maybe that's why he's the clever one....

I remember the millennium bug! There was such panic!
I wish my family didn't have a camcorder. There will be some proper cringe ones of me putting on shows and stuff..eeep!

nonperson 20-09-2020 01:18 PM

Oh me and my sister used to put on shows too but we were never recorded, luckily!

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 01:24 PM

Lucky you!
I am not looking Forward to when those ones get brought out! :p

tamobhuuta 20-09-2020 03:07 PM

That video sounds cute.

Cacoethes 20-09-2020 03:12 PM

It is quite cute but extremely cringe worthy!

yoyogirl 20-09-2020 07:57 PM

I’m so bored...going fishing is on that show is the most boring show I have ever seen my life and we’ve just seen a tv show on making car, as well as endless football and car programmes. I am yawning my head off

chinahorse 21-09-2020 10:28 AM

Morning to you all. Miss ya!

tamobhuuta 21-09-2020 10:29 AM

Greetings my friends! How are you china?

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 10:42 AM

Good morning guys

Miss you too Lillie!

one_step_closer 21-09-2020 11:04 AM

Morning everyone. How's your day going so far. You've only got 57 minutes to trash with the morning.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 11:14 AM

Morning lindsay
So far I have accomplished nothing
I'm going to go to asda during the doctors lunch break so I know no one is going to call during that time

How about you?

chinahorse 21-09-2020 11:50 AM

Surely they will call your mobile anyway?

Hows it going Tamo?

Hey Lindsay, Ive had a lazy morning and stayed in bed until half8! And have now stripped the bed, done and hung up 2 loads of laundry and had a bath and am doing coursework and have just rang about a refund Im owed from the bus company.

My tumble dryer is meant to come in the next 3 hours- so excited! And my friend is coming around half 12 I think? (We work together and are a support bubble so its not illegal)

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 11:56 AM

Yeah but it's not really a conversation I want to be having in asda!
They called and discharge meeting arranged for tomorrow.

Wow that's a lot Lillie! Well done!
And a tumble dryer is very exciting indeed!

chinahorse 21-09-2020 11:59 AM

Ah thats a point, didn't think of that.

Doesnt seem like a lot to me. Im back doing 40 paid hours a week and 12.5 hour days out the house working my ass off so am used to being extremely busy, this doesnt seem it.

My tumble dryer is black like my washer and fridge and bin and small appliances. Super excited.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 12:41 PM

I think it's a lot anyway.
But then my days are pretty empty.
I am in awe of you Lillie!

Oooo that sounds cool!

nonperson 21-09-2020 01:11 PM

I'm excited for your tumble dryer too, Lillie. Mine is by far one of the best things I have ever bought.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 01:17 PM

I love my washer dryer.
Couldn't live without it now!

chinahorse 21-09-2020 02:34 PM

Its here and installed! Thankfully it fit in the gap and isnt as deep as a washing machine so could shove it back further to get the water draw out around the radiator. My friend helped me lift it up too :) I want to put my earlier laundry in it but its a warm day so I hsould let it dry on the rack until this evening.

Im shattered now, my friends left too and I dont want to do more coursework.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 02:38 PM


Do you have a due date for your coursework?

chinahorse 21-09-2020 02:42 PM

The entire RoE is due to be submitted in final mid october. So if I want any chance for the tutor to review any of it I need to get it done soon. But its made up of written tasks- which I did ages ago and write up of practical tasks that someone witnesses. But my work witness isnt watching anything. And Ive 90% of the practical things to do. SO Ive started just writing them and will tell my witness to just sign them because its too close to the deadline now. And the tasks are things I do every single day anyway.

I may nap first though for a bit. Am absolutely exhausted.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 02:43 PM

Fair enough.
Sounds frustrating that they aren't watching you do anything when they're supposed to

chinahorse 21-09-2020 03:55 PM

My work all over. Say one thing and do another.

I couldn't nap :-(

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 04:08 PM

Ugh. Sorry about that. Sounds so annoying

Oh no :(

nonperson 21-09-2020 05:54 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 06:00 PM

Hi np

How are you?

nonperson 21-09-2020 06:08 PM

Meh. Wondering why simple tasks are never simple. x.x

How're you?

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 06:12 PM

True. Hope you manage to get it sorted

I'm ok. Just a bit....disturbed I guess

nonperson 21-09-2020 06:28 PM

That doesn't sound so good. =/

Cacoethes 21-09-2020 06:35 PM

It's not really
The microchip in my neck has been going crazy today and I don't know why.
It is bothering me

nonperson 21-09-2020 07:08 PM

You should probably talk to someone about that.
