Do you remember that superhero show he was.in? I can't remember the name of it. Had Hugh... someone in.it too who has been on taskmaster as well.

She would totally PWN taskmaster!

Also Lindsay, have you never had a Cherry Bakewell? It's not the same as a Bakewell tart though... But some might say better?

Then there's also Bakewell pudding which is completely different and equally delicious.

It was My Hero. Hugh Dennis is the person in it. I watch Not Going Out which he is sometimes in.

nonperson 28-04-2022 10:11 PM

That's the one! Used to ;love My Hero.

Not going out has that annoying person in it so I can't watch.

Really rubbish on the names of people tonight. The main guy character.

tamobhuuta 28-04-2022 10:21 PM

I think crumpets are British.

nonperson 28-04-2022 10:23 PM

oh tamo why did you have to say the C word! =P

The real question regarding crumpets is marmite or cheese or jam?

not_so_insig 28-04-2022 10:41 PM

I am surprised that the word isn't censored tbh.

nonperson 28-04-2022 10:45 PM

Crumpets should be censored? XD

nonperson 28-04-2022 10:45 PM

"Jam on crumpets" should be censored imo

And marmite.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 09:17 AM

Me and my brothers loved my hero!
So funny!

I'm not a fan of not going out.
Do.you mean lee mack? I don't find him that funny

Mmmm crumpets!

Morning everyone!

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 11:04 AM

Also, with all this talk about crumpets, i had to get some from asda this morning!

not_so_insig 29-04-2022 11:54 AM

Morning all. I had a disturbed night's sleep.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 12:24 PM

Me too

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 01:44 PM

Afternoon, I hope you all have a good day even if you didn't sleep well. The Scottish version of crumpets is the best.

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 01:52 PM

Arrgh, there are mixed messages about if the TSB in a place near me is open or closed for good. The one where I live is definitely closed for good. I was planning on going to the bank in L today but the phone line says it's permanently closed even though I've seen the doors open but maybe it has closed since. I'll need to go to the bank in M but it takes ages to get there so I'll need to go another day.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 01:56 PM

Banks are closing all over the place!
It's very annoying!
And the opening times are all over as well

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 03:30 PM

It's really not convenient. How is your day going?

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 03:31 PM

Not bad thanks!
Just had my nails done!
The length is going to take some getting used to again but i love them!

How about you?

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 03:36 PM

I don't know how anyone can do anything with long nails. I'm glad you treated yourself and are pleased with them.

I'm not doing much. I never do anything good. Feeling really low as usual.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 04:11 PM

They aren't even that long!
Like people have natural nails the length i have the gel extensions at!

Sorry to hear that lindsay.
Can you think of anything nice you can do for yourself?

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 05:57 PM

Oh yeah I saw on Fb.

I can't think of anything nice to do for myself.

What will you be doing with your evening?

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 06:10 PM

It doesn't have to be something big. Maybe like making a hot chocolate for example? Doesn't have to be that, that's just something that i do!

Crisis will be coming soon then I'll have a shower. Put my washing away and change my bed sheets.
That's about it!

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 06:21 PM

I can't even think of a tiny thing. It doesn't matter.

That's a lot to be getting on with. I hope you have a nice evening and sleep well.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 06:44 PM

Thank you :)
Sleep has been hard lately.
Need to get up early tomorrow!
Mum.and step dad are.going to a wedding so i need to get there before 10:30
And it takes about 2 hours altogether to get there. Assuming buses are on time!

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 07:37 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 30-04-2022 08:33 AM

Morning Beckie :-)

Are you on the road by now????

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 08:37 AM


Yep on the bus! Bright and early!

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 11:03 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 30-04-2022 12:11 PM

Hi people :)

Zurg 30-04-2022 02:34 PM

Hi Dawn and Tamo :-)

What have you been up to today??

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 02:42 PM

Hi everyone, how are you all today?

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 03:02 PM

Hello everyone. I have been catching up on telly.

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 03:03 PM

What have you been watching, Dawn?

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 03:45 PM

Classic Coronation Street, a programme about a lighthouses, the Yorkshire Vet Lindsay.

Zurg 30-04-2022 04:47 PM

I love shows about vets. Or rather, i love the animals in the shows about vets ;-)

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 04:58 PM

Hey everyone.
My brother gave me a lift ALL the way home!
So I'm back early!

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 05:31 PM

Did you enjoy your day Beckie?

Animals are great :-D do you have any pets Kat?

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 05:40 PM

I did thanks!

Animals are great

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 05:47 PM

Do you have a favourite animal Beckie? I read a book about animal heroes once and they were so brave.

Zurg 30-04-2022 06:09 PM

Yay Beckie!!! A lift is always nice :D

I do have pets, Lindsay. 2 zebra finches, 1 canary, a giant african landsnail and an auarium with tiny fish, shrimps and snails. I am currently planning to get a bunny. It might be a while still, i need to get an awful lot of different stuff in preparation. I just want a fluffy pal <3

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 06:22 PM

Wow, you could open to the public to see all your animals. A bunny would be great too.

On a different note, we were talking about sending you some UK snacks. Well I'd be up for it anyway. If this sounds good to you would you be ok with giving one of us your address?

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 06:29 PM

Horses are my favourite animal! Always has been!

Your pets sound cool zurg!

I'd be up for that too! YOU NEED GINGER BISCUITS!!!

Zurg 30-04-2022 08:22 PM


Sure, i'd be okay with giving you my address. I doubt any of you would suddenly show up unannounced but even if you do, i'll ask you in for coffee :-)

When i lived in supported housing, the other people i lived with had a standing joke that i could earn a bit of extra cash by charging people for coming in and visiting my zoo, lol. My flat there was a student flat and it was very small but i filled it with pets of all kinds. I had canaries, bugdies, Guinea pigs, mice and a hamster while i lived there. I might be a wee bit obsessed with animals….!!!! Most of my friends Think that it's cool. Except for the giant african landsnail. Only a few people Think that is cool. But i Think she's lovely!!! I have named her snailzilla and i make sure to pet her every day so she is aware that i love her!!!

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 08:50 PM

I may or may not show up unannounced :tongue2:

I think the giant snails are kinda cute in their own way!
When we were kids we used to race snails lol
Kept us busy for hours! XD

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 09:24 AM


I was hoping to sleep in today. I even took a zopiclone as well as my usual sedating meds in the hope it would keep me in bed longer but nope, up at 8 yet again!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2022 11:45 AM

Was your sleep restful?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 11:47 AM

Not particularly! Lol

How are you?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 02:44 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Kat, is there anything you know of that you'd like to try that we could send you apart from ginger biscuits of course?

Sorry you didn't get to sleep as long as you wanted to Beckie. What have you been filling your time with today?

How are you Tamo?

not_so_insig 01-05-2022 02:45 PM

How about Monster Munch? Or Welsh cakes?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 02:56 PM

I've pretty much been doing nothing!
Lots of stress going on lol!

Monster munch is a good one
