How are you doing? Up to much today?

Stellata 21-03-2019 10:21 AM

I'm going to my Writing Group then getting something nice for dinner.

Stellata 21-03-2019 10:21 AM

How are you doing?

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 11:49 AM


How are you Eska?

Stellata, I hope you enjoy your writing group (what name am I allowed to use for you on here?) What might you get for dinner?

tamobhuuta 21-03-2019 12:10 PM

Morning all. I'm going to try reading today.

Eska 21-03-2019 02:01 PM

I hope it goes well! Any idea what you will read?

I'm ok. Just been napping.

tamobhuuta 21-03-2019 02:29 PM

Hope you had a good sleep! Idk what to read, been through all my books and none appeal.

not_so_insig 21-03-2019 03:42 PM

Hello all. I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road. Noticed an statue which I haven't done before.

tamobhuuta 21-03-2019 03:50 PM

What was the statue of?

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 04:00 PM

Hey guys

Eska 21-03-2019 04:41 PM

Hey Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 04:52 PM

Ok thanks

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 05:37 PM

Hello again.

Have you found anything to read yet Tamo?

How has your day been so far Eska?

Is it a new statue Dawn?

Did you go swimming today Beckie?

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 05:42 PM

Yep went swimming!

What have you been up to lindsay?

tamobhuuta 21-03-2019 05:47 PM

Read a bit of a book on my kindle, about Carmelites (a religious group)

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 06:49 PM

Is it good?

not_so_insig 21-03-2019 07:06 PM

No it's not a new statue Lindsay it's just that I have never noticed it before.

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:30 PM

Hey everyone.

I might have a fun new game for this thread! Does anyone want to play "Guess the age of my lungs?"

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 07:31 PM

Good for you Beckie :) Did you enjoy your swim?

Tamo, I think my local library just had an info session about Carmelites. Are you liking the book so far?

Dawn, I am wondering how you could miss a statue!

I was at the gym group but we went for a walk which was good.

Hey NP, that sounds like a not so fun game. Are you not well?

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:35 PM

Hey Lindsay.

Nooo I am well. Had my annual work health check today and my lungs are in particularly good condition. The nurse gave me a "lung age" which is rather surprising.

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 07:39 PM

Thanks Lindsay! :)
I did enjoy it thanks

Glad the walk was good

That's interesting np!

Stellata 21-03-2019 07:41 PM

Is your lung age close to your real age, or?

What's the statue of?

The books sound good.

I'm having a pie. Must go and get it now. It's my birthday today so a special treat!

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:42 PM

Really not close to my real age. Apparently I have the lungs of a 22 year old! I'm really very oddly proud about that. =)

Happy birthday, Stellata. Enjoy your birthday pie!

Stellata 21-03-2019 07:43 PM

Oh and folks can call me Katie. :)

Thanks np.

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 07:44 PM

Happy birthday Stellata! :-D

That is something to be proud of np!

Dont know what my lungs would be
I smoked for years so maybe not so good
Although I did give up 2 years ago

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 07:45 PM

Oh, that's good news NP! Although you have spoiled the game by giving us the answer!

Happy birthday Katie. I hope you enjoy your pie. :-)

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:46 PM

Someone else I work with who is much younger than me has 40 year old lungs because of asthma.

Maybe best not to find out what age yours are, Beckie! Super job giving up though. =)

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:47 PM

Sorry Lindsay. I was too excited to keep it to myself, hehe. ;-)

zombiehunter 21-03-2019 07:47 PM

evening all

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 07:48 PM

That's alright NP, it's a good achievement and should be shared!

Something good changes in your lungs 24 hours after stopping smoking, doesn't it?

Hi Zombie, how are things?

not_so_insig 21-03-2019 07:51 PM

Lindsay it's on a path I don't normally take that's how come I haven't noticed it before.

Tamobhuuta apologies for not answering your question before I missed it! It's an montage of coal miners as there is mining history. When they were building a building across the path an mine shaft opened up and had to be filled in. Apparently my flat is built on a old mine shaft!

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 07:53 PM

Ah, what made you take a different path today?

zombiehunter 21-03-2019 07:54 PM

things are awesome thanks OSC :-D

I don't know if you heard but I now have two jobs :-D

also I was in town today and saw two junkies being huckled by CID

nonperson 21-03-2019 07:55 PM

Hope they filled in the old mine shaft first before building on top of it.

It's always nice exploring new paths. I've spotted a few lately I want to investigate some time too.

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 08:00 PM

Great Zombie :-) Yeah I did read you have two jobs now although I can't remember if you said what your new job is?

Bet that was entertaining in town, always something going on.

I also like exploring new places but I usually worry I'll get lost or end up somewhere strange so I don't bother!

zombiehunter 21-03-2019 08:01 PM

its at the same place as my mum but i'm out in the van helping with deliveries

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 08:03 PM

Cool. How long have you been doing it? Are you liking it?

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 08:04 PM

Yes I think lungs recover quite quickly after stopping smoking
Not sure on the details though!

2 jobs?!
I can't even find one!

Stellata 21-03-2019 08:05 PM

Thanks Beckie and Lindsay.
My pie is delicious - goat's cheese, sweet potato and spinach. Yes, I went to Waitrose!

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 08:05 PM

Damn Zombie Hunters stealing all our jobs. :tongue2:

Ooh, that sounds like a very tasty pie.

zombiehunter 21-03-2019 08:06 PM

I started yesterday OSC

you can come work for me coco :-D

nonperson 21-03-2019 08:09 PM

Beckie you can come and work for me for 9 months as maternity cover if you like!

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 08:10 PM

Two good offers there Beckie, how to decide???

Stellata 21-03-2019 08:15 PM

Indeed a very tasty pie!

Jobs? What are they?!

tamobhuuta 21-03-2019 08:15 PM

I am enjoying it but it's hard to read today.

one_step_closer 21-03-2019 08:17 PM

Difficult to concentrate? Do you have a child's book or something really easy to focus on?

Cacoethes 21-03-2019 08:25 PM

Sounds like a very posh pie Katie!

I'll do both jobs! :tongue2:

I have fresh sheets and PJs for tonight :)

nonperson 21-03-2019 08:25 PM

I quite like reading things I used to as a child. They're familiar and not complex so makes it easier to focus.

nonperson 21-03-2019 08:26 PM

Can I employ one of you to wash my car on Saturday?

zombiehunter 21-03-2019 08:30 PM

if you pay me in beer its a deal
