Oh that doesn't sound ideal Beckie!

There's loads of takeaways here. A lot of them aren't that great. I tend to just pick food up from the ones I like, rather than order.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 06:05 PM


That sounds sensible Lucy!

not_so_insig 27-12-2019 06:50 PM

There's no takeaways within an reasonable walking distance where I live. There used to be a chip shop but it closed down.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 06:54 PM

Space Jam is on!

not_so_insig 27-12-2019 07:13 PM

The Wizard of Oz was on before.

Buttons. 27-12-2019 08:13 PM

Weirdly the wizard of Oz freaks me out a bit from when I was a kid and yet I adore Wicked. Sad times about lack of take away Dawn!

I watched Look Who’s Talking Now for first time yesterday and finished it off this morning can not Believe I never saw this as a kid/ in general!!!! It’s awesome!

I had weetabix for my dinner as cba making any effort and feel a tad nauseous.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 08:14 PM

I have never seen any of those things!

Fair enough Buttons!
Weetabix is a perfectly acceptable dinner

Buttons. 27-12-2019 08:31 PM

You are a disgrace Beckie.

And Thankyou :) I enjoyed it. Though think the dog has concluded I’m most evil owner in the world for not sharing :p

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 08:37 PM

Dogs are never happy when we eat and don't share!
Mum's 2 dogs were the same at Christmas dinner

Buttons. 27-12-2019 08:46 PM

Yeah she’s had a bad day for it- had left over chocolate cake earlier and I’ve never seen such a tortured expression on her face but somehow I prefer a sulking alive dog than a poisoned with chocolate but happy one :p

Buttons. 27-12-2019 08:46 PM

Am I right in thinking your mum’s dogs are Alsations Beckie?

Indigo. 27-12-2019 08:48 PM

I agree Weetabix is good. And dogs get so cross when you don't share!

I like Wizard of Oz and Wicked! I collect a specific type/brand of dolls and I've got a limited edition one that is meant to be the Tin Man.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 08:50 PM

No, she has a giant schnauzer and a welsh collie Buttons

tamobhuuta 27-12-2019 09:44 PM

Our cat is the same.

Weetabix is good with a ton of sugar.

Buttons. 27-12-2019 10:00 PM

Where on Earth have I got that from then Beckie? I must have Alsations in the brain thanks to to madam currently using me as a sofa now she’s barked the place down. I used to love weetabix with a ton of sugar when I was little Tamo but went off it as an adult. Might still have it in porridge though I’d have to experiment.

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 10:13 PM

Not a clue Buttons!

I like a good amount of sugar on weetabix and porridge!

Indigo. 27-12-2019 10:42 PM

I don't like sugar (I like sweet stuff though just not putting sugar in stuff?) I always have golden syrup with my Weetabix :)

They all sound like great dogs! How I wish I had one!

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 10:45 PM

Hmmm I've never heard of golden syrup on weetabix! I imagine that would be very sweet!

I wish I had a dog too Lucy

Buttons. 27-12-2019 10:48 PM

O rly! You didnít mention that in messenger *parcels up madam*

Cacoethes 27-12-2019 10:53 PM

Not a dog that sh*ts in the house though :p

Indigo. 27-12-2019 11:22 PM

It is quite sweet! But I don't put too much, as it's quite strong XD. I love golden syrup!

My dog was so good, I'd rescued him off the street and he was already house trained (had to re-home him when I moved, he has so much space to run around now).

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 10:25 AM

Hi everyone, hope you all slept well. I got up a little earlier than usual, to fit in more coffee before church.

chinahorse 28-12-2019 11:06 AM

That's a good reason to get up earlier tamo!

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 11:07 AM

Morning guys

Buttons. 28-12-2019 11:26 AM

Morning all :) hope you enjoy church Tamo.

Anyone else got plans for today?

Indigo. 28-12-2019 11:26 AM

Morning everyone!

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 11:31 AM

Hey Buttons and Lucy!

one_step_closer 28-12-2019 11:54 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

I'm hoping my parcel I missed yesterday is at the post office today.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 11:56 AM

Hey lindsay
Is it a fun parcel?

one_step_closer 28-12-2019 12:01 PM

Yes, it's a glitter lamp. I broke the one I had and I'm missing it.

Are you getting up to much Beckie?

Indigo. 28-12-2019 12:21 PM

Glitter lamp sounds great Lindsay!

How's everyone today?

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 12:28 PM

Glitter lamp sounds fun.

Friends time!

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 01:24 PM

Ooo glitter lamp!

I'm back at minor injuries but kung fu panda is on the TV so it's fine

Indigo. 28-12-2019 01:44 PM

I'm sorry you're at the hospital Beckie. So am I. Forever waiting here!

Wish I were watching TV tbh, but I've now got crosswords so will be entertained.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 01:47 PM

There's no TV in our MIU that's unfair.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 01:49 PM

Thanks Lucy
Sorry you're in too!

I can't stand crosswords!

Ah that's a shame tamo
Flushed Away is on now yay!

Indigo. 28-12-2019 01:49 PM

I don't know if ours has one! I'm in a different part of the hospital (section of Emergency Dept) but there are definitely no TVs here. Bored out of my mind so far!

Indigo. 28-12-2019 01:49 PM

*hugs Beckie*

I do actually enjoy crosswords, they keep me busy/distracted.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 01:53 PM

I can't do crosswords, they're too difficult. I do like wordsearches though.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 01:56 PM

*hugs* to you too Lucy

Word searches are more tolerable!

Buttons. 28-12-2019 02:00 PM

I like arrow words.

I tend to keep my phone charger on me if I suspect may need hosp for any reason so can read books on there and bug facebook to death :p

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 02:07 PM

Good idea Buttons

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 02:10 PM

I should have brought my power bank.
But I'm still at 85% so should be ok

chinahorse 28-12-2019 02:47 PM

I bought some new jarmies today :-)

Indigo. 28-12-2019 03:25 PM

Also should have brought a powerbank. My phone is low on battery and can't charge it and use it at the same time :( It was 80% last night, been here since 8PM.

Yay for new jammies Lillie

Buttons. 28-12-2019 03:48 PM

New jammies are always a winner!

Hope your various phones hold out! Indigo you could always be cheeky and ask someone with a charger if you can stick your phone on airplane mode and charge it for a few mins, I’ve done that before and had other people ask the same of me.

chinahorse 28-12-2019 03:57 PM

They are fleeced and look cosy and say santa paws on them! Hope they fit. It was a 8-10 or 12-14 situation. :/ so either bit small or too big.

Indigo. 28-12-2019 03:57 PM

I have a charger Buttons, sorry wasn't clear before, couldn't type properly. My phone charges slowly and I can't sit close enough to use it so I keep getting anxious & disconnecting it. I didn't try it on airplane mode though so might do now, thanks!

one_step_closer 28-12-2019 03:58 PM

*sends emergency power banks*

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 04:10 PM

New PJs sound amazing Lillie!

I'm on my way home now and still at 79% so I think I'll survive!
