You better be ok. =)

Off to Asda today?

chinahorse 12-07-2020 01:06 PM

Would getting out help beckie? Im hoping it will for me.

Ive only hung laundry out so need to go poke my arm out and see if its sandals or shoes.

nonperson 12-07-2020 01:09 PM

I'd say sandals for here! Not that I have any.

I need to go hang some laundry out now actually.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 01:11 PM

No asda today.
I don't need anything for once!

Getting out might help. I will go for a walk later

I haven't been outside yet but it looks warm!

nonperson 12-07-2020 01:21 PM

The one good thing about the sunshine is it brings out all the butterflies and bees in the garden.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 01:21 PM

Butterflies and bees are always good!

nonperson 12-07-2020 01:25 PM

They're peaceful to watch. I put bird food out this morning too so hopefully there will be some birds to watch as well.

The cat's just come in covered in cobwebs... o.O

The Worst Witch 12-07-2020 01:33 PM

Morning everyone

I forgot it was Sunday today so I’ve missed T and L going food shopping, bleh :(

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 01:35 PM

Aww lovely!
I want to get a bird feeder to put outside my window.
Only problem is I only have a front garden type thing and I don't want it to be vandalised. Even though this is a nice quiet area so it will probably be fine.

Hmmm I wonder what he's been up to!

Ah that's annoying Alison!

nonperson 12-07-2020 02:03 PM

You can get small ones that stick on the window. I doubt anyone would want to touch or steal anything covered in bird poop. >.>

He's been investigating dark cobwebby corners!

That's a shame, Alison. There's another Sunday coming up in a few days time though. =)

The Worst Witch 12-07-2020 02:41 PM

What is it with cats and dark corners?! Sooty has been chasing butterflies today, I’ve had to rescue at least 3 already today.

Yeah, this is true. Its not a disaster, I just feel bad for disappointing L because he looks forward to seeing me on Sundays. T had to calm him down apparently because he was upset, but I might see if she’s free later and pop round this evening.

nonperson 12-07-2020 03:04 PM

Why do they have to chase butterflies. They're too pretty and rare to chase...

That sounds like a good plan instead. I'm sure he'll be fine.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 03:09 PM

I might have to look for one of those np!

Aww bless him. Hopefully you'll be able to see him later

nonperson 12-07-2020 03:15 PM

This sort of thing: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meripac-Com...4559698&sr=8-5

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 03:17 PM

That looks cool!
Such a discount, £12.80 to £12.79 :p

not_so_insig 12-07-2020 03:18 PM

My now deceased neighbour put some bird feeders in the communal garden. I have only once seen any birds on them.

nonperson 12-07-2020 03:20 PM

Every penny counts, Beckie. ;-)

Birds will come if there is food there consistently.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 03:28 PM

That is true np!

Birds are all over my mum's bird feeder!

chinahorse 12-07-2020 03:42 PM

I have trees both sides with birds nests in them. Oh my days I want to shoot them some mornings.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 03:45 PM

I can imagine Lillie!

nonperson 12-07-2020 03:46 PM


I like bird song. And the parakeets squawking and the owls hooting aaaand even the jackdaws, to an extent. =P

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 03:50 PM

My family have a family of owls in one of their fields and they wake them up in the morning!

chinahorse 12-07-2020 03:59 PM

I dont mind owls. But tiny birds high pitched chirps are irritating in the extreme.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 04:06 PM

Yeah there was one here the other week.
Woke me up at like 5am and I couldn't get back to sleep

tamobhuuta 12-07-2020 06:53 PM

I love the sound of wood pigeons.

Cacoethes 12-07-2020 06:56 PM

Someone on mumsnet ruined wood pigeons for me.
Their call sounds like 'my toe hurts, Betty' if you listen to it.

tamobhuuta 13-07-2020 11:50 AM

Morning everyone. I had a late night (half ten!) But slept quite well after that.

The weather is lovely here but my sister says it's going to get hot.

I'm planning to do nothing in my loungewear.

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 12:17 PM

Morning tamo

It's warm outside, I've just been to asda
I practically ran in case I got the email to say my TV is on the way but alas, no email.

tamobhuuta 13-07-2020 12:32 PM

I don't know how people cope without TV.

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 12:43 PM

I'm using my laptop currently but it's just not the same!

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 01:25 PM

Afternoon all. I have stomach ache :-(

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 01:29 PM

My TV is coming today!
Glad I ran to asda this morning

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 01:38 PM

Yay Beckie (my phone autocorrected it to Buckie!)

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 01:48 PM

How's your stomach ache?

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 01:56 PM

It's still very painful.

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 02:01 PM

Sorry to hear that

My TV should be coming between 2-4pm

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 02:34 PM

Fingers crossed that it comes soon.

Did you get it from amazon?

tamobhuuta 13-07-2020 02:39 PM

I hope your stomach feels better soon insig.

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 02:43 PM

Thanks dawn!
I got it from ebay but it is brand new

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 03:18 PM

I have a parcel coming from amazon tomorrow hopefully.

tamobhuuta 13-07-2020 03:30 PM

Is it an exciting parcel?

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 03:49 PM

No it's cat food.

[Luna] 13-07-2020 04:30 PM

Hey all

tamobhuuta 13-07-2020 04:32 PM

Oh. I'm disappointed.

My godmother was going to phone me about 3pm but she hasn't yet. I'm ok though, I've read a bit.

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 04:40 PM

Hi Luna
How are you?

My delivery still hasn't come.
They have 20 mins to come within the time frame they gave!

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 05:04 PM

It came! :)

[Luna] 13-07-2020 05:08 PM

Get anything exciting Beckie?

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 05:24 PM

A new TV!
My old one broke

not_so_insig 13-07-2020 07:24 PM

Hope you're watching TV Beckie!

Cacoethes 13-07-2020 07:27 PM
