I managed to get the very last bag of compost in Asda! Means I don't have to go out at all for the entire weekend now. =)

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 10:08 AM

That's good news np!

Morning everyone
I am upset today because I was going to go for a socially distanced visit with Jasmine today but woken up with a rotten cold so not going :'(
And the crisis team just called and said they are coming between 10-12 so that's fun :/

chinahorse 06-06-2020 10:19 AM

That sucks beckie :-( could you video chat and do crafts together or read a book?

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 10:22 AM

That's a good idea Lillie
I'll suggest that to my mum

tamobhuuta 06-06-2020 10:35 AM

That sucks Cacoethes. I like China's idea.

My big sister is coming for tea in a minute, and I've got an online meeting throughout the day.

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 11:02 AM

That sounds nice tamo

not_so_insig 06-06-2020 12:46 PM

Hopefully you have had a visit from the crisis team by now Beckie.

One of my postcards to Russia has arrived. Plus my Ebay purchase has been sent so hopefully it will arrive soon. I am waiting for another parcel but that is being sent from Romania so Idk what Romania post is like.

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 12:53 PM

I have but they interrupted a very crucial part in a show I was watching so I was annoyed :p

Are they exciting parcels dawn?
I have exciting parcels coming today

nonperson 06-06-2020 01:14 PM

You should have asked them to wait, Beckie. =P

Ooh exciting parcels for all.

nonperson 06-06-2020 01:22 PM

Oh my goodness. The news reader just said "Mancock" instead of "Matt Hancock"... *snort*

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 01:24 PM

I should have!

Ahahahahaha!!! That's hilarious!!

nonperson 06-06-2020 01:27 PM

Almost as good as a few weeks ago when a different reporter said that the German football players would be disinfecting their balls at half time!

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 01:34 PM

I love the news sometimes!
And sometimes the subtitles get things so wrong!

not_so_insig 06-06-2020 02:17 PM

My parcel from Romania is some postcards for postcrossing. Normally I get my postcards from the local tourist information centre but of course that's closed atm. Not that I have been to town since March. My ebay parcel is a blank canvas so that I can do some painting. Normally I would have got it from town but of course nearly all the shops are shut and the bus service has been greatly reduced here.

tamobhuuta 06-06-2020 03:23 PM

I didn't get to spend much time with my sister because of my online meeting but I enjoyed the meeting.

I had cheese cake!

chinahorse 06-06-2020 03:28 PM

What was the meeting about tamo?

I've been to town. The supermarket was crazy!!

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 03:33 PM

Yum cheesecake!

Oh dear Lillie!
Did you get what you needed?

I thought I wouldn't have to go until Monday but looks like I'll have to go tomorrow. Not looking forward to it!
I will be having an appointment at some point anyway

nonperson 06-06-2020 04:23 PM

Supermarkets are best avoided during the day at the weekend, in my experience. Not sure what they're like during the week. It's probably worse today because it's raining and no one wants to swarm to the parks and open areas to sunbathe/picnic/litter/walk/cycle/get in my way... so they're going to the shop instead. =P

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 04:37 PM

I actually just went to the shop because it means I won't have to go tomorrow and I think Sundays are worse.
I got straight in, no queue like there was yesterday.
Was quite busy though

There were 2 fire engines on my usual route to asda and they cordoned off the road, so I had to make a slight detour. Very rude of them!

nonperson 06-06-2020 04:42 PM

Omg yes Sundays are terrible. I'm still recovering from when I went on a Sunday a couple of weeks ago. Last night at 9:30 was pretty good. =)

Oh dear. Hope nothing serious happened. Can be nice to take a different route sometimes though!

chinahorse 06-06-2020 04:47 PM

This was next level crazy.no onw on the door so way to many people in the shop. Boxes of stock everywhere blocking the way. Barely any tills open. I did have to get different to what I normally would in some thi gs but got what I needed.

How rude indeed beckie!

nonperson 06-06-2020 04:54 PM

Yeah that's what happened to me, no one controlling the numbers of people going in. Glad you managed to get what you needed though.

Cacoethes 06-06-2020 04:58 PM

That sounds horrendous!

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 10:15 AM

Morning everyone
Its been very quiet in here!

chinahorse 07-06-2020 10:45 AM


You up to much today?

The cat is sat on my lap and we are eating pringles. Which is cute but he is sat on my heavily stapled and infected thigh. Ouch. But he is so happy and cute I cant move him.

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 10:48 AM

Not really.
Had an appointment this morning at the put of hours nurse and carer has just left.

Yay to pringles! Boo to cat sitting on wound. That sounds painful!

chinahorse 07-06-2020 11:08 AM

That was an early appointment.
More Harry Potter?

Hes moved a bit so we are both comfy.

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 11:11 AM

It was!
I actually had to get up early which was annoying
Maybe later. Not really in a harry potter mood atm which is odd!
I'm watching Highway Cops about police in New Zealand. It's quite entertaining

Awww that's good

chinahorse 07-06-2020 11:31 AM

Snap. Though I've seen it before.

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 11:39 AM

I've not seen this one before.
I don't watch it that often

nonperson 07-06-2020 09:00 PM

I just finished watching The Rise of Skywalker. Emotional rollercoaster much.

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 09:11 PM

What did you think of it?
A lot of people hated it but I liked it!

nonperson 07-06-2020 09:25 PM

I'm going to have to watch it again but I did enjoy it.

I liked all the cameos =) Not so sure about Kylo Ren at the end or Hux and I've always found Rey a bit meh but it didn't spoil it. It's the ultimate battle of good vs evil and nothing can ruin it in my opinion!

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 09:35 PM

I agree!

My brother used to admin an fb page called 'Emperor Palpamemes' and now that's all I can think whenever someone says palpatine

nonperson 07-06-2020 09:58 PM

Oh my goodness... Emperor Palpameme. I don't know whether to laugh or cry!

Cacoethes 07-06-2020 10:45 PM

Makes ms me laugh still

tamobhuuta 08-06-2020 11:03 AM

Morning all x

Cacoethes 08-06-2020 11:21 AM

Morning tamo

I'm in the massive queue for barclays atm
It's not moving fast either!
And there's been an incident in the town centre
Looks like a fire happened and there are firemen in helmets and police :/

tamobhuuta 08-06-2020 01:47 PM

Oh dear that all sounds very stressful. Did you get what you went for?

Cacoethes 08-06-2020 02:00 PM

Yes I did thanks!
Though I was queueing for 45 minutes!
There was no fire but apparently a chimney crumbled and fell down and narrowly missed someone.

not_so_insig 08-06-2020 02:05 PM

tamobhuuta there's no Doctors next week. Not sure if it's been taken off air due to coronavirus or just it's summer break. There's an extra long episode on Friday though.

tamobhuuta 08-06-2020 02:08 PM

Oh no! I always forget about the summer break. Thanks for telling me :) how are you?

I'm glad you got what you needed. That sounds scary!

Cacoethes 08-06-2020 02:20 PM

It is scary!
And I had to go the long way round to asda because the area was blocked off
That's the second time in 3 days my route has been disrupted by fire engines!
The first time was because the bingo hall was struck by lightning

tamobhuuta 08-06-2020 02:27 PM

Wow it's all go in your town!

Cacoethes 08-06-2020 02:35 PM

I know! Just 2020 doing its thing I suppose!

not_so_insig 08-06-2020 03:27 PM

I have washed my windows. They have been needing doing for an month now.

tamobhuuta 08-06-2020 05:03 PM

Are they clean and shiny now?

My sister had an hour and a half hour psych appointment! I'm bracing myself for Thursday.

not_so_insig 08-06-2020 05:32 PM

Yes they are shiny now. I was waiting until the council cut the grass as it always makes my windows dirty when they do it. They cut the grass on Wednesday.

nonperson 08-06-2020 05:37 PM

Don't even know when I last cleaned my windows...

not_so_insig 08-06-2020 05:52 PM

I dont tend to do them very often but it badly needed doing. Fortunately I had only 4 windows to do.
