They're at school though so maybe it couldn't work?

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 11:19 AM

I'm sure my school was used as a polling station at one point?

one_step_closer 12-12-2019 12:16 PM

I have also voted, was a bit anxious about it. It's so formal and important!

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 12:19 PM

It is!
Well done for going

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:21 PM

I agree it's scarey. Ours is in a church hall.

one_step_closer 12-12-2019 12:21 PM

What are you doing today Beckie, apart from trying to avoid the letting agent?

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:28 PM

Who else is sleepy?

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 12:31 PM

I need to post my nanny's Christmas present and then I'm going to my mum's.

I am oddly not sleepy despite not having slept properly in days!

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:34 PM

I hope you have a good time with your mum. Will you see Jasmine? I'm sure it's nice not to be tired but sleep is important!

chinahorse 12-12-2019 12:40 PM

Sounds nice to see family beckie.

I'm waiting for the post. And for someone to WhatsApp me back about going to vote. I suspect shes too anxious to go alone so suggested we go together. Bug didnt reply to my message asking what time.

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 12:42 PM

Yep I will see Jasmine when she finishes school :)

I agree sleep is important
I just can't seem to do it!

Hope she replied soon Lillie

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:43 PM

I hope you hear from your friend soon. Voting doesn't close till 10pm (I think)

chinahorse 12-12-2019 12:44 PM

I sent the reply at the same minute she asked me. Grr.

I wanna go before the kids get out of school though tamo.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:45 PM

That's wise

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 12:47 PM

How annoying!

I also avoid being out when the kids get out of school
I won't be able to avoid it today though!

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 12:53 PM

My polling station is in the park at the bottom of the road. Though oddly there's a chapel in my village which is just as far to walk which is used as a polling station. It's pissing it down here as I have been to get the recycling boxes and bag plus check whether they emptied the wheelie bin.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:54 PM

We're lucky, the rain is slacking off.

chinahorse 12-12-2019 12:54 PM

Why is using a chapel odd?

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 12:57 PM

The rain here has stopped luckily as I'm leaving now!

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 12:57 PM

That's good.

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 12:58 PM

I meant that I dont get why my polling station is in the park where it's just as quick to go to the chapel Lillie

chinahorse 12-12-2019 01:05 PM

Voter numbers probably Dawn.

Glad its stopped Beckie!

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 01:19 PM

Got into town super early because I was expecting a massive queue at the post office but there was no queue!
So I'm having a caramel latte

chinahorse 12-12-2019 01:34 PM

Very nice!

Moonlight Princess 12-12-2019 01:47 PM

Lillie would postal voting be easier?
Aww I'm going to have a chill day I think because I just had to do a presentation for uni and I was bricking it somewhat!

chinahorse 12-12-2019 01:59 PM

Probably for my friend. Going doesnt bother me.

How did the presentation do?

nonperson 12-12-2019 02:21 PM

I've got voting stress, argh. =(

chinahorse 12-12-2019 02:28 PM

Dont worry np, whoever you vote for is a pile of ****!

chinahorse 12-12-2019 02:29 PM

Net curtains are up. Took me ages. Also features blue tack.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 02:29 PM

It is stressful. There's no party I completely agree with so I'm going for the least bad.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 02:37 PM

I'm watching Christmas Tail on 5

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 02:50 PM

Caught the tail end of the local weather forecast and I am supposed to have snow on Saturday and Sunday.

tamobhuuta 12-12-2019 02:55 PM

Is that good or bad insig?

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 03:06 PM

It's pouring down!

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 03:10 PM

Bad tamobhuuta because where I live gets the snow really bad and the roads and pavements become lethal.

Cacoethes 12-12-2019 03:28 PM

I've had a productive day so far.
Voted, posted letter and booked a dentist appointment for next week

chinahorse 12-12-2019 03:56 PM

Good time for the dentist beckie. Shouldn't have to wait too long if you need anything done it's usually fairly quiet presumably ad no one has the money or time before christmas. Emergencies tend to be actual emergencies as well!

I know! That's most of the problem. It makes me feel so awful. =(

Plus I've never been to a polling station before so that's stressing me out too.

chinahorse 12-12-2019 04:09 PM

You can 'spoil' the paper and not vote for anyone if you want too.

And the polling station isnt so bad. Just give your name and address to the people, go off and make the vote and then fold it in half and pop it into the black box usually by where the people are sat.

I got some white chocolate buttons as a reward for going out.

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 04:14 PM

I have been to vote. It's flipping freezing here. Rain has stopped thankfully.

nonperson 12-12-2019 04:20 PM

I'm registered for postal voting but I missed the post but can take it into the polling station instead... so the normal rules don't apply. =/

Freezing and still raining here!

one_step_closer 12-12-2019 04:38 PM

There was a 'suspicious device' at a polling station near me. It didn't turn out to be anything serious, although they did a controlled explosion. Some people.

not_so_insig 12-12-2019 04:40 PM

I have 2 cats on me so they must be feeling cold.

nonperson 12-12-2019 05:26 PM

That's so bad, Lindsay. Was it left on purpose?

chinahorse 12-12-2019 05:42 PM

It's sad that because of the state of the world I wasnt surprised to read that Lindsay.

Buttons. 12-12-2019 06:11 PM

I also voted for the lesser of evils (in my view)

Also made small start on packing.

nonperson 12-12-2019 06:17 PM

The world is so rubbish at the moment... =(

When do you move, Buttons?

Buttons. 12-12-2019 06:31 PM

In theory 2nd week of January. Viewing the inside for first time tomorrow!!! So excited!!!

nonperson 12-12-2019 06:38 PM

Ooh that's not long then! I hope you like it when you see it, although I'm sure you will because it's going to be such an improvement. =)

chinahorse 12-12-2019 06:42 PM

Going to make life so much easier for you buttons :-)
