Cacoethes 31-07-2020 09:01 PM

Yep! So annoying!

nonperson 31-07-2020 09:03 PM

I wish it was easier not to care about having hairy legs. =/

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 09:13 PM

I know!
When did it become a thing where people have to shave their legs?!
I curse the person who thought it up!

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 09:14 PM

I think leg shaving is a feminist issue.

Also, in gross news, i have a toe infection.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 09:27 PM

Yeah it is

Oh no! Is it painful?

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 09:29 PM

No, it's not painful but it looks all wrong.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 09:34 PM

That must be uncomfortable. At least it's not painful though

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 09:36 PM

Yeah :) what are you up to this evening?

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 09:47 PM

Just watching Would I Lie To You currently. It's funny!
How about you?

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 10:43 PM

I'm watching TV till my room cools down. Currently 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown. It's good fun.

Personal question - how often do you all shower?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 01:37 AM

I love that show!

Not often enough tbh! I tend to wait until my hair gets unbearably greasy or if I have to go somewhere like my mum's or depot

one_step_closer 01-08-2020 11:16 AM

Morning, how are you all?

tamobhuuta 01-08-2020 11:56 AM

Hi osc, i am sleepy because my room was so hot. How are you?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 12:21 PM

Goooood morning people!

My room was hot too! My fan just seemed to be moving hot air around but it did help a bit!

I'm good thanks Lindsay. How are you?

nonperson 01-08-2020 01:01 PM

Morning all.

I haven't been able to get on here for some reason for the last half hour or more - every time I tried my browser told me I had no internet! But I was using google and Amazon so that wasn't true. Weird.

I'm also sleepy. Weird night's sleep (my fault) and weird dreams.

As for showering, I shower every morning before work and afterwards but only if it's been really hot... and I TRY to shower once a day at weekends but that doesn't usually happen unless I have to see anyone. My hair gets greasy really quickly and I can get really grimy at work. =/

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 01:10 PM

Afternoon np!

How very odd! Glad it's fixed now!

When I was at work I showered every evening after work. Had to do it right after I got in because my feet hurt so much if I sat down I'd never get up again!
That's 12 hour shifts for you!

nonperson 01-08-2020 01:23 PM

Everything's still a bit slow now.

That post also took forever to go through too so although it says 12:01 and I did actually press send when it was morning! Just so you all know. >.>

Eek, 12 hour shifts are awful. Luckily I don't have to do super long days any more. Used to in my old job.

What time's your swim booked for today?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 01:45 PM


Yeah 12 hour shifts aren't great!
And I used to get there an hour early because public transport is stupid.

1:30. So I'll leave in about 15 mins. I'll probably get there like 10 minutes early but would rather be early than late so I can definitely get the full hour in!

nonperson 01-08-2020 01:55 PM

Yup, make the most of it. =)

Did you used to treat yourself to a coffee or something afterwards?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 01:57 PM

I did but the café isn't open yet :(

Just did a food shopping delivery but there was no availability until next Sunday! Got a lot of yummy things though! I'm cheating on asda with tesco because asda had no slots at all

nonperson 01-08-2020 02:01 PM

That was going to be my next question. Shame. Have something nice when you get back home instead!

*gasp* No loyalty, Beckie. No loyalty. =P

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 02:22 PM

I need to go to asda afterwards so I shall get something nice then!

I know, it's so terrible of me!

At the pool now. Catch you later!

nonperson 01-08-2020 02:24 PM

Have fun! =)

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 04:55 PM

Swimming was awesome!
I wanted to stay longer than my hour unfortunately they are only hour slots.
It was great because no screaming kids and there were lanes set out nicely and it was really empty!

nonperson 01-08-2020 05:33 PM

That's so good it was organised well and it must make a huge difference without any kids too.

Will you be going every day?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 05:39 PM

I wish it could be like that forever!
And they had a medium speed lane which is perfect for me!

I'm going to try to if I have nothing else on!

nonperson 01-08-2020 05:50 PM

Good stuff. =)

What's on for the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 05:52 PM

Nothing much really!
Might go for a walk later.
I'm already bored at home!

How about you?

one_step_closer 01-08-2020 06:11 PM

Can't be worse than being bored in hospital though?

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 06:15 PM

That is very true!
Hospital bored is a lot worse!

How are you lindsay?

nonperson 01-08-2020 06:37 PM

Hey Lindsay. =)

I'm watching a 1958 Sinbad film while doing some designs for work. Need to brave the shop later which I'm worrying about a bit. =/

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 06:41 PM

What's worrying you about the shop?

nonperson 01-08-2020 07:58 PM

Going! Plus wearing a mask for the first time, though in theory it should make me feel safer.

Cacoethes 01-08-2020 08:00 PM

I'm sure you'll be ok.
Good luck!

nonperson 01-08-2020 11:53 PM

It was ok. I have a fridge full of food again.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 01:55 AM

Yay! Well done!

nonperson 02-08-2020 10:15 AM

The mask was a bit annoying and the one way system was gone but it went alright.

Morning all. I'm off for a mini snack picnic with my friend in a bit.

How's everyone so far today?

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 10:52 AM

Masks are annoying! They make my glasses steam up :plain:

That sounds lovely np! Hope you enjoy!

I'm ok. Woke up at stupid o clock again!
Probably the heat. I'm not tired though.
Oh and I just murdered the curtain but fixed it!

tamobhuuta 02-08-2020 11:28 AM

Morning all. I had a difficult night, i had nightmares which is unusual for me.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 12:05 PM

Nightmares are awful
Hope tonight is better for you!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 02:27 PM

Have you tried putting the mask on first then putting your glasses on top Beckie? That what i was recommended as I had the same problem.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:31 PM

Yep done that! It helps slightly but not enough for me to be able to see properly!
So irritating!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 02:36 PM

Is the mask tight enough? I found that it also helped because mine was too loose.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:38 PM

Yeah my masks seem ok!
The steamy-ness goes away after a while but the intial steam is just so annoying!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 02:39 PM

I am outta ideas.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:41 PM

Lol thanks for the ideas anyway! I think my glasses are too loose so that may be why. Need to get the arms tightened up I think!

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:44 PM


Picnic was nice. I was forced to run around with a football by a 3 year old though, until she had a tantrum about something else >.>

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:04 PM

Glad the picnic was nice np!
Haha! That's 3 year olds for you!

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:09 PM

Yup. =)

Then she was like "why are you taking off your jumper?" and I was like "because you made me run around!"

It was kinda sad though because, although she understands social distancing really well, the 16 month old doesn't and he kept wanting to show me things and give me things and I had to keep backing away and try and make a game of it, instead of making him think I was ignoring him. =(

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:11 PM


Awww bless. I hope he wasn't too upset by it
