It's a standalone thing as far as I can tell!
If it's not you can catch up with things pretty quickly

nonperson 22-06-2021 07:54 PM

Covid jab all done. It was much more organised and quicker than last time, although much busier and a man kept trying to force me to take a sticker afterwards like I was a child o.O

shadow-light 22-06-2021 07:59 PM

some people would kill for those stickers :laugh:

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 08:16 PM

I would have loved a sticker!!!

Tonight's carer did all my washing up and wiped down the surfaces in the kitchen.
Maybe they're not all *completely* useless :p

tamobhuuta 22-06-2021 08:19 PM

L is so kind, she got me a crochet-your-own Professor MacGonagall kit!

nonperson 22-06-2021 08:19 PM

I probably would have taken a sticker if it didn't mean breaching social distancing to take one! Most people were taking them and asking where they could stick it, haha.

Bloody hell, Beckie. Why did you let that one leave?!

nonperson 22-06-2021 08:19 PM

Omg Tamo that sounds amazing!

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 08:24 PM

Awesome tamo!

I should have asked her to do a bit of vacuuming too :p
She was really nice!

that one is a keeper!

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 08:35 PM

Definitely Hazel!

Morning all.

I am awake because someone from dpd knocked on my door at 9 am! Unfortunately I was asleep so didn't get to the door in time. Now I am wondering who on earth sent me a package. Although dpd sent me a card with a tracking number I don't recognise the sender. Dpd are coming back tomorrow which is annoying as **** because I was supposed to be going to the hearing voices group tomorrow so looks like I cant go because I have to wait in all day for this mystery package. Unfortunately dpd haven't sent me an email saying it was coming either :-( I cant seem to change the delivery day either otherwise I would change it to Friday when I'm in all day.

I am expecting an amazon parcel but that's coming today supposedly. But they're using their own courier not dpd. Confused.com

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 10:12 AM

Morning dawn!

shadow-light 23-06-2021 10:16 AM


I camt remember the last time a courier has actually needed to see me... they dont even knock anymore, ever since covid started they just leave stuff at the door.

Have they given you a time for tomorrow's delivery at least?

nonperson 23-06-2021 10:22 AM

Ooh a mystery parcel. I'd go to the group anyway, Dawn. They'll just leave another card if you're not in. Is your name definitely on it? Maybe it's not even for you of you're not expecting anything!

All the couriers I've used lately just leave the package at the door too.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 11:00 AM

I think dpd are usually better than amazon and hermes etc. With the chucking of parcels on front door steps!

tamobhuuta 23-06-2021 11:15 AM

Hi peoples!

nonperson 23-06-2021 11:23 AM

Morning Tamo and Beckie.

Amazon just threw my latest parcel over the gate last week so when I came home I opened the gate and smacked right into it. Luckily it was nothing breakable in there!

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 11:43 AM

Morning tamo!

Oh no np!
My last few amazon deliveries they've knocked on the door, left the parcel and then i can only assume they sprint back to their van because I answer the door pretty quickly!
I have a delivery coming today via hermes. I can't remember what I ordered!

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 12:23 PM

I have managed to get the package delivered on Friday so I can go to the hearing voices group tomorrow. I still have no idea what the mystery package is. I suppose that they deemed it unsafe to leave it on my doorstep as I live in a block of flats and it could be nicked. Though if they rang the doorbell then it would have woken me up and therefore I would have answered the door as my knocker isn't very loud.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 12:29 PM

That's good

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 12:32 PM

I reckon the council spent about 5p on a job lot of knockers as Idk anyone that can hear them they're that useless.

nonperson 23-06-2021 01:14 PM

I think people just don't knock them very hard because they're not expecting anyone to be in or don't want to wait for someone to answer.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 01:16 PM

Maybe invest in a doorbell dawn?

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 01:35 PM

I have a doorbell Beckie just that the dpd man didn't use it. Neither did the amazon man but at least he knocked the door instead of using the knocker so I got my parcel.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 01:49 PM

Oh ok!
You could put a note on the door saying 'please use the doorbell'
That might help

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 02:01 PM

I might do that Beckie. Anyway my amazon parcel consisted of a pack of batteries and some round canvases. I got a discount on the canvases because yesterday was prime day.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 02:06 PM

That's good

I'm finally allowed to pick up my own medication from the pharmacy!
Still have to have the carers check it but it's good that I don't have to rely on them to pick it up

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 02:16 PM

That's excellent news Beckie! At least you don't have the hassle of relying on carers to pick up meds as they've been useless on that score.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 02:20 PM

Thanks dawn!

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 02:24 PM

I take it you haven't managed to get rid of carers yet?

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 02:29 PM

Nope. Still working on it!

not_so_insig 23-06-2021 03:22 PM

A kiddies slide has appeared in the communal garden. No kiddies live here and I have never known any come visiting. It's an old slide too as it's faded. It's mighty strange.

nonperson 23-06-2021 03:27 PM

Maybe someone donated it.

I'm having ice-cream because why not =P

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 03:27 PM

That is very odd!

Ninja post np!
What kind of ice cream?

nonperson 23-06-2021 03:36 PM

A mini Magnum double raspberry.

Bought the mini box and didn't realise you get mini double chocolate ones in it too. So I feel a bit cheated!

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 03:37 PM

I haven't tried the raspberry one

nonperson 23-06-2021 03:39 PM

It's sooooo gooooood. Om nom nom. =D

Was highly disappointed when I picked out a double chocolate one yesterday.

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 03:46 PM

That does sound disappointing!
Double chocolate is still good though!

nonperson 23-06-2021 03:48 PM

Oh it was good. Just wasn't what I was expecting. =P

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 03:59 PM

Fair enough!

I am continuing my binge watching of taskmaster!

nonperson 23-06-2021 04:17 PM

Which series now?

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 04:23 PM

Series 4!
I love noel fielding!

nonperson 23-06-2021 06:43 PM

Aha, the exotic sandwich series XD

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 06:52 PM

Haha! Yes!
I'd forgotten all about it until I watched it again! XD

I've just started series 5 now!

nonperson 23-06-2021 07:31 PM

Mel's exotic sandwich has me in fits of laughter.

The songs are good in this series!

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 08:09 PM

Yeah it was so funny!

I can remember almost nothing about this series!

nonperson 23-06-2021 08:47 PM

It'll be like watching it for the first time then. =)

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 08:48 PM

Yes it will!
Now taking a break from taskmaster to watch QI!

Are you watching anything good?

nonperson 23-06-2021 09:16 PM

Warehouse 13. Nearly at the end though =(

Cacoethes 23-06-2021 09:28 PM

Aww I hate when you get to the end of something good!
