Oh yes I have plenty in.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 02:50 PM

Spoilt for choice then!

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 02:54 PM

Trouble is that it's all frozen and none of it cook from frozen hence why I have to plan now.

It sounds wet and windy outside I dont want to go and do my recycling. Plus I am not sure what week it is.

one_step_closer 20-10-2021 03:15 PM

RYL bin night. I haven't checked which bin goes out tonight yet.

Weather here is sunny and windy.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 03:48 PM

Ah ok. That complicates things!

I got caught in some rain and there are some very big dark clouds over town. But it's sunny and windy and quite warm over my house!

It's the general rubbish for me this week.
I only know because my black bin is crammed full and green bin is only half full

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 03:49 PM

I am waiting for the email from the council. It comes around 3 pm. I think it's recycling tomorrow.

one_step_closer 20-10-2021 06:18 PM

We have a recycling bin for plastics and glass and another one for cardboard and paper and another for food and garden waste. As well as the normal bin. They're all big bins and get emptied on different weeks.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 06:36 PM

That sounds complicated lindsay!
I'd never remember which bin went out when!
We just have a black bin for general rubbish, a green lidded bin for all recycling and an all green bin for garden waste.
Which hasn't been collected in months due to driver shortages.
Its caused quite a stir on the local fb pages!

nonperson 20-10-2021 06:41 PM

We have to pay for the garden waste bin here.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 06:53 PM

That's annoying!

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 09:50 PM

We have to pay for garden waste too here but I don't pay because I don't have a garden.

Cacoethes 21-10-2021 10:23 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 11:55 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 21-10-2021 11:56 AM

Been better.
But got work today so got to pull myself together

How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 12:04 PM

Sorry you aren't feeling well. Don't be afraid to take the time off if you need to. But I hope if you go it's helpful.

I am ok. Slept like a baby! No plans.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 01:24 PM

Afternoon all. I am planning to go to the park at the bottom of the road later with my mum.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 01:35 PM

Also we have reached 4800 pages!

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 02:21 PM

Go us!

I hope you have a nice time with your mum.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 03:44 PM

I went around the park. I am still in considerable pain so I didnt stay out too long.

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 06:40 PM

Sorry to hear that insig. I hope this evening is better.

I'm having an anxious day.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 09:56 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 11:17 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 11:47 AM

Same as yesterday pretty much
But another day of work to get through

How are you?

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 12:28 PM

I'm ok. I might talk to my spiritual director if she's not busy.

I hope work goes okay.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 01:06 PM

She wasn't available so I left a message.

nonperson 22-10-2021 01:37 PM

Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 01:47 PM

Hi np, how are you?

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:09 PM

Hey Tamo. I'm... cold and unmotivated but not at work.

I hope your spiritual director gets back to you. Does she usually respond quite quickly?

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 02:21 PM

I empathize with the cold. I am wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt, a vest and a jumper dress.
Is there anything you need to do today?

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:35 PM

I'm still in pyjamas and a jumper so that'll be why I'm cold. Jumper dress sounds cosy!

I need to shower and do a food shop probably. Maybe make a phone call...

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 02:41 PM

I hope you find some motivation. Chores are hard.

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:51 PM

I've started a shopping list with stuff to make a tagine. =)

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 03:54 PM

I love a good tajine. What's going in it so far?

nonperson 22-10-2021 04:04 PM

I have never cooked or had one before but I got a free sample of spice mix for it. Going to use mostly veg - swede, carrots, parsnip, onion, garlic... and maybe some lamb, I'm undecided about that at the moment.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:19 PM

Hello everyone!

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:23 PM

Howdy Beckie. How's your day been?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:28 PM

Busy, stressful and tiring!

How about you?

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:32 PM

At least you're not on the evening shift.

Quiet and unproductive here...

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:33 PM

Very true!

Did you have much to do today?

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:47 PM

Not particularly. Off work today so only had chores to ignore. Was going to go food shopping tonight but I think I'll give that a miss.

What're you going to be doing with your evening?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 07:53 PM

Fair enough!

I need to shower but I'll do that after QI
Need to find time to clean because I'm at mum's tomorrow then work on Sunday and Monday then house inspection on Tuesday
Will probably have to clean after mum's and asda tomorrow

nonperson 22-10-2021 07:59 PM

Eep, cleaning sucks. Best to do it in stages when you can. I'm sure it doesn't need to be spotless?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:01 PM

My neighbour did a clean for my birthday so it's only hoovering, a bit of mopping and some dusting. Nothing too bad!
It won't need to be spotless. They've been happy with it so far!

nonperson 22-10-2021 08:33 PM

Ah that sounds ok then. Just do the obvious bits they'll see.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:37 PM

I think that will be the plan!

I have showered!
Can't wait for bed

nonperson 22-10-2021 08:46 PM

Well done. Got an early start tomorrow?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 08:53 PM


Not really.
I can get to mum's whenever.
I'll have to check bus times. They keep changing!

Have you got anything planned for tomorrow?

nonperson 22-10-2021 09:04 PM

Ah that's good. Takes the pressure off when there's no specific arrival time.

Nope, no plans. Might try to do food shop early in the morning if I can.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 09:16 PM

Indeed it does

Sounds good

I think I'm going to head off to bed early
So so tired

nonperson 22-10-2021 09:25 PM

Sleep well. Enjoy tomorrow =)
