Blue is lovely. Nice and calm and fresh.

My living room and bathroom are the only rooms that are painted. The rest is that typical magnolia wall colour.

nonperson 15-05-2020 08:21 PM

Haha, Beckie. I love Big Hero 6!

chinahorse 15-05-2020 08:32 PM

Evening all :-)

nonperson 15-05-2020 09:14 PM

Evening Lillie.

I made a spectacular chilli con carne tonight. =o

chinahorse 15-05-2020 09:25 PM

Well done! Sounds fab.

nonperson 15-05-2020 09:40 PM

I thought it might be rubbish because of using a different packet mix to usual and mega cheap ingredients because the normal stuff was all ravaged in the supermarket and I added a teaspoon of cocoa powder to take the sweetness out and cooked it forever because it was so watery for some reason... Yum. =)

chinahorse 15-05-2020 09:44 PM

Sounds yum. And you discovered a new way to do it!!

I've never had packet mix chili. Always just make the same base and chuck in random stuff. Cant get it to taste right without the beef stock and mince though. Doesnt have any depth to the flavour.

Cacoethes 15-05-2020 10:14 PM

That sounds tasty np!

nonperson 15-05-2020 10:21 PM

It was very tasty.

Yeah I tried it with Quorn before and it just wasn't the same. Can Quorn be overcooked? I'm wondering if cooking it longer would help.

Packet mixes are a bit of a cheat but they taste nice and are easy.

chinahorse 15-05-2020 10:28 PM

Ive never managed to overcook quorn mince no, other soya ones can disintegrate a bit.

nonperson 15-05-2020 10:42 PM

Hm I might give it another go some time then, with my newfound chilli making skillz. =P

Buttons. 16-05-2020 12:37 AM

Chilli is awesome!!!! And aw bless you missed me!

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 07:51 AM

Why did I wake up at 7:30am?
So annoying

chinahorse 16-05-2020 09:40 AM

Welcome to my life beckie. Have coffee!!

What films will you watch today? Is it a good food day? I always find weekends can be a bit eek when it comes to hospital food.

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 09:43 AM

I have had coffee and am more awake!
Mainly because the staff kept coming in and bothering me

I haven't decided yet. Will have a flick through disney plus and now tv and see what I fancy
Not sure what the food is today but I had a cooked breakfast which was a bit meh. I swear the 'egg' has never been near a real egg in its life!

chinahorse 16-05-2020 09:45 AM

Bahahaha plastic eggs!! Least you eat meat. Veggie options are even more horrendous usually.

I might watch big hero 6 today. Or wall E. Is wall E on Disney plus?

one_step_closer 16-05-2020 09:56 AM

Morning everyone. I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 10:28 AM

That's true Lillie
The veggie options are very limited

Yes wall e is on disney plus!

Morning lindsay
Hope you have a good day too!

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 10:31 AM

Hey guys, morning. I slept so badly, waking up every hour, but never long enough to take zopiclone.

Who's got plans for today?

Eska 16-05-2020 10:32 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 10:35 AM

Hi Eska, how are you?

Eska 16-05-2020 10:39 AM

Not doing too badly thanks :) How is today treating you?

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 10:40 AM

It's ok thanks, just tired, need another beverage.

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 10:56 AM

Hey eska!

I've just made another coffee

nonperson 16-05-2020 10:58 AM

Morning everyone.

Lively in here today. =)

one_step_closer 16-05-2020 11:08 AM

Hi Beckie, Tamo, Eska, and NP.

I didn't sleep very well either Tamo.

I was just about to go out but I made the mistake of sitting down and now I have one cat on my lap and one cat on my shoulder.

nonperson 16-05-2020 11:10 AM

You're really pinned down! I have a cat on my lap too.

nonperson 16-05-2020 11:11 AM

And as soon as I typed that he got up and left!

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 11:14 AM

Our cat loves being a shoulder cat.

nonperson 16-05-2020 11:16 AM

I can carry Geordi around the garden on my shoulder, he likes that. =)

It's de-fleaing day today, I'm waiting for the moment when he's least expecting it and unable to squirm away. >.>

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 11:33 AM

Aww kitties!

Good luck with that np!

nonperson 16-05-2020 12:29 PM

I'm giving him a false sense of security by treating him to a special lunch. >.>

He even seems to know when I'm reaching for the vial of Frontline!

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 12:41 PM

Cats are clever!

nonperson 16-05-2020 12:44 PM

Oh not always! They can also achieve some incredible levels of dumbness at times too. XD

one_step_closer 16-05-2020 01:24 PM

I just did my cats flea treatments a couple of days ago I think and it was surprisingly easier than usual. Church has had a skin reaction though. :-(

Good luck NP.

How are you doing Beckie?

nonperson 16-05-2020 01:27 PM

Poor Church. =( Geordi sometimes loses the hair on his neck where it's applied, but not always.

one_step_closer 16-05-2020 01:29 PM

And we wonder why cats don't want their flea treatments!

What's everyone doing about wearing masks in supermarkets and smaller shops? I need things but instead I've decided to wait a week for delivery because I'd want to wear my mask in Tesco but I'd be worried about what the people not wearing masks would be thinking about me.

nonperson 16-05-2020 01:46 PM

I'm also very worried about what people think if I don't have a mask.

I don't have one at the moment... and I wasn't intending on wearing one, I don't really know to be honest! Might make a better decision about it based on the next time I go to the shop.

I think if you need stuff, just go and get it even without a mask. Don't worry what people think, you won't be doing anything wrong. It's not compulsory and there's so much contradicting advice about wearing them anyway that who knows if it really is safer to do so.

not_so_insig 16-05-2020 02:59 PM

I dont know regarding the mask situation as I have only once been in a shop since lockdown began. I think it depends upon where you live as to the advice given eg Wales has different rules regarding exercise to England.

one_step_closer 16-05-2020 03:33 PM

I just don't want people looking at me.

How is everyones day going?

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 03:50 PM

Take a mask with you, just in case?

chinahorse 16-05-2020 04:27 PM

Hey :-)

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 05:26 PM

Hi china, how are you?

chinahorse 16-05-2020 05:33 PM

Worn out.

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 05:39 PM

Can you chill out this evening?

chinahorse 16-05-2020 05:47 PM

Yep. Trying not to give in and nap or go to bed now as it's way too early

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 05:56 PM

I make myself stay up to at least 8pm...

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 06:26 PM

Hey guys
Just got my phone off charge
Had a shower and put on clean PJs!

tamobhuuta 16-05-2020 06:29 PM

Well done for having a shower. I love being in pyjamas

Cacoethes 16-05-2020 08:42 PM

Me too. So comfy!
