I'm ok thanks!
Taking the boys to have their nails clipped today.
It's only a 25 min walk but feels much longer because they are so heavy!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 11:15 AM

Hello :)
Have fun at the vet Cacoethes!
How are you Pi?

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 11:19 AM


Have you got anything planned for today?

Pi.R^2 27-12-2022 12:46 PM

Beckie, I'm a lazy car owner so 25 minutes walk even without carrying guinea pigs sounds like a big effort to me =P Hope the vet trip goes well!

How are you tamo?

I have Christmas part III today as my sister is coming up with her boyfriend.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 01:36 PM

A lot of people who drive have said 'i can't imagine walking that far!'
When really it's not that bad!

I am home. The boys were perfectly behaved and we were in and out in minutes! I really thought pippin would be his usual drama queen self! But nope. Both stayed perfectly still!

I hope you enjoy Christmas part III!

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 02:17 PM

Hi everyone. I read that the met office is recording a 'technical white Christmas' due to snow flurries. It's icy and rainy here today but we still have weather warnings for ice and snow soon.

I'm glad your fluffies were well behaved at the vet, Beckie. I hope your arms aren't sore after carrying them for so long. I've never thought of guinea pigs being heavy. It's about a 25 minute walk from my house to Tesco so it can be difficult with heavy bags but I always walk there and back unless I have cat litter, then I get the bus back.

How's your day going, Tamo?

Christmas part III! I hope it's a good one, Jenna.

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 02:21 PM

Afternoon all. Why is tv so ***** over the Christmas? Just films which a) they have been on the telly before (in some cases every year) and more importantly b) i dont have the concentration for films. Might see what is on the streaming services.

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 02:25 PM

Hi Dawn, I hope you find something good to watch. I hate Christmas TV but I have an indoor aerial and it doesn't work in this weather so I have to use catch up TV players. When my brother was over he was on Netflix constantly. I've had enough of Christmas TV.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 02:29 PM

My boys are especially big!
Not overweight, but you can tell they love their food! Lol
Especially pippin. He's bigger than Merry!

Yeah i don't blame you getting the bus! Cat litter is heavy!

I haven't found the tv to be too bad.
I do like kids films though

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 02:29 PM

Yeah I have had enough of Christmas tv too. I have noticed that if it's not films then it's repeats.

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 02:33 PM

I've had enough of Christmas full stop! (yes I know that's an exclamation mark not a full stop :-D )

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 03:15 PM

Well, it's all over now!
Only about another week and things will be back to normal!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 03:47 PM

For me Christmas isn't over until Epiphany, the 6th of January.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 04:10 PM

Is that a religion thing?

I'm feeling snacky. But i have no snacks :(
I don't think i can be bothered to go to asda!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 04:27 PM

Yes, that's when we celebrate the three wise men coming to see the baby Jesus.

Think of all that lovely fresh air!

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 04:28 PM

Ohh cool!
Do you do anything to mark the day?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2022 05:02 PM

A nice dinner, mince pies etc

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 05:11 PM

Did you not have any food for Christmas Beckie? I got some biscuits and chocolates.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 05:17 PM

Sounds nice tamo!

Not really. I'm not usually big on snacks.
And things like selection boxes and boxes of chocolates are so expensive for what they are!

not_so_insig 27-12-2022 05:25 PM

Oh that's a shame.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 05:36 PM

Yeah. Sadly just can't justify £4 on chocolate!
Could get several meals for that! Lol

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 05:39 PM

I'm also feeling snacky. Shouldn't have eaten all my chocolate gifts so quickly. I've ordered from Asda arriving tomorrow.

Dawn you are making me want biscuits!

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 05:47 PM

If i had money, I'd probably order from asda on ubereats! Feeling very lazy lol

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 05:53 PM

Will you be able to go to Asda tomorrow? It's ok to be lazy especially at this time of the year.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 06:15 PM

I have work tomorrow but I will probably go before work. Definitely won't feel like going afterwards, no matter how much I intend to!

one_step_closer 27-12-2022 07:02 PM

If I was working I'd be the same. I hope you make it to Asda before work and get everything you need/want. What are you doing this evening?

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 07:13 PM

I'm sure I will!

I'm just chilling.
Just showered and put washing away.

How about you?

Pi.R^2 28-12-2022 12:24 AM

I like the expression ‘feeling snacky’ and will be adopting it going forward as i am very often feeling snacky!

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 09:59 AM

Tis a good expression!

Morning everyone!

Zurg 28-12-2022 11:17 AM

Morning Beckie :)

How are you today?

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 11:41 AM

Not bad thanks!
Just back from asda. Leaving for work soon. Boooo!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 11:46 AM

Hi guys

Zurg 28-12-2022 12:05 PM

Hi Tamo :)

I'm okay. But i feel extremely tired so i can't promise the day won't include a nap at some point..

Zurg 28-12-2022 12:05 PM

Hope work goes Well!!!

Are you doing anything today, Tamo??

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 12:07 PM

Nowt wrong with a nap.
I'm waiting for my dad to visit.

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 12:12 PM

Nap if you need to!

Thanks! Just hoping it won't be super busy.
It's that weird period of time between Christmas and new year so who knows??

one_step_closer 28-12-2022 02:33 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope work goes well, Beckie. Did you get some things you wanted from Asda?

I hope you can have a good nap that helps with your tiredness, Kat. As long as you will sleep at bed time too.

Has your Dad visited yet, Tamo? I hope you enjoy/enjoyed seeing him.

I had an Asda delivery to be delivered between 3pm and 5pm but it actually arrived at 1.15pm.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 02:40 PM

It's good you don't have to wait for it osc.

I had a lovely time with my dad.

Zurg 28-12-2022 02:47 PM

Hi Lindsay :)

Never Got around to nap. Felt sad and lonely and decided to clean up and organise some stuff instead. Mr. Bun-bun was most helpful. He inspected empty boxes, sniffed everything and digged an awesome cave-wannabe-thing in my weighted blanket on my bed. Now i am totally done for!!! So is Findus the bun-bun XD

Think i shall attempt to relax a bit for the rest of the day.
Glad it was a nice visit Tamo!!!
Did you get lots of nommy stuff Lindsay??

one_step_closer 28-12-2022 02:47 PM

I'm glad it was good to see your Dad. :-) Is anyone else visiting today?

one_step_closer 28-12-2022 02:50 PM

Ninja Kat.

Do you feel any better after your cleaning and organising? I'm sorry you're feeling such painful emotions. Good on Findus for helping you. He's not damaged your weighted blanket though, has he? Resting sounds like a good plan.

I got some Minstrels (are they a thing you know?) and chocolate covered peanuts.

not_so_insig 28-12-2022 03:52 PM

Hello all. I received 6 letters today. Plus an parcel.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 04:28 PM

Ooo mail! Was it interesting post insig?

My mum is coming at 7pm

Yummy minstrels.
Busy day Zurg!

not_so_insig 28-12-2022 05:19 PM

Yes it was very interesting. Though I had a letter from the dwp but fortunately it was a letter about my cold weather payment.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 05:25 PM

That's a relief!

one_step_closer 28-12-2022 05:44 PM

Nice post is one of my favourite things :) I'm glad the letter from the DWP wasn't a scary one, Dawn.

I hope you have a nice visit from your Mum, Tamo. I'm glad people are there for you.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 06:48 PM

I am so grateful for them, I need that link to home.

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 06:54 PM

I am back from work.
It was busy, but not massively.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 07:05 PM

That's good. Ready to relax then? What are you up to this evening?

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 07:10 PM

Not up to anything. Just gave the boys their dinner
