Yes i read that.
I think pilates is about toning muscles and yoga is about flexibility. But quite similar.

Yes it looks like it!
It's going cloudy again XD

nonperson 27-06-2022 04:22 PM

Sunny again. =P

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 04:35 PM

The weather is being such a troll today!

nonperson 27-06-2022 04:38 PM

It's the first day of Wimbledon. The random weather all makes sense now.

one_step_closer 27-06-2022 04:39 PM

I'm not good at holding my stomach in for the exercises that require it. Well done for doing the yoga NP (I nearly wrote Yoda there).

Has anyone tried Tai Chi?

The weather here is dry and dull but it has also been sunny and rainy. I think the rain is supposed to continue for a few days with some areas having a flooding warning.

one_step_closer 27-06-2022 04:40 PM

Ninja NP. I know nothing about Wimbledon. Do you watch it?

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 04:43 PM

Not a huge fan of Wimbledon or tennis in general tbh!
If they replaced all the ball boys with golden retrievers though...I'd watch that.

nonperson 27-06-2022 05:22 PM

I was semi brought up on Wimbledon so I always watch it.

Never tried Thai Chi but it looks interesting. My nan used to do it. =)

The retrievers would get hurt by the speeding balls =(

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 05:25 PM

Not if they caught them first!
I bet my family's collie, sparkles, would be able to catch the balls mid air! She's a speedy agility dog with a tennis ball obsession

nonperson 27-06-2022 06:30 PM

At 120 miles an hour?

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 06:39 PM

Wouldn't put it past her XD
She'd at least manage to grab it when they bounce the ball before serving

nonperson 27-06-2022 06:48 PM

Ahaha, now that would be funny watching them rapidly trying to serve before a dog steals the ball.

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 07:10 PM

I would DEFINITELY watch that!

nonperson 27-06-2022 07:18 PM

Flyball meets tennis.

not_so_insig 27-06-2022 07:50 PM

I have ordered from Just Eat. First time of doing so and it was cheaper than Domino's.

nonperson 27-06-2022 07:58 PM

Most things in general are cheaper than Dominos =|

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 07:58 PM

Should be a thing np!

I hope you enjoy it dawn!
Domino's is indeed expensive!

not_so_insig 27-06-2022 08:02 PM

Yes I hope so too. There's a local app which is the same thing as Just Eat but they don't accept PayPal and I cba adding my card details. So that's why I went with Just Eat.

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 08:10 PM

Fair enough!

not_so_insig 27-06-2022 08:13 PM

In general unless it's amazon then I dont deal with a company if they don't accept PayPal.

Cacoethes 27-06-2022 08:22 PM

I don't like to use PayPal. Don't know why

nonperson 27-06-2022 08:23 PM

I use Paypal if it's offered, if not I use my card. Simples. =P

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 07:33 AM


not_so_insig 28-06-2022 11:01 AM

I am confused. I had a text from dpd saying a parcel is on it's way today. I am expecting 2 parcels that might come via courier
One is from China and tracking says it is still in China. The other hasn't been sent yet. Worryingly the tracking number says the parcel is in Edinburgh! So I am guessing it's a text that was sent to the wrong number. The text was legit and not a scam.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 11:03 AM

I wouldn't worry
Either you get a parcel or you don't

not_so_insig 28-06-2022 11:05 AM

Yes but what if it's one of my parcels that I am expecting and it's been sent to the wrong part of the country? I don't want to lose my money.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 11:08 AM

Then you could contact whoever you bought it from?
Sometimes tracking info doesn't get updated
I've definitely had surprises from delivery companies

nonperson 28-06-2022 11:19 AM

Never order stuff from China. It's usually more of a ballbag than it's worth. And normally some cheap knockoff.


Cacoethes 28-06-2022 11:24 AM

Hey np!
How are you?

I'm about to leave for my nail appointment.
Been waiting AGES for this!

nonperson 28-06-2022 11:25 AM

I'm tired.

Are you getting anything fancy done?

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 11:27 AM

Can you have a chilled day?

Hoping to get the pink Floyd triangle with rainbow thing. I forget what the actual name for it is. Prism?
It's from the dark side of the moon album cover

nonperson 28-06-2022 11:41 AM

Yeah, nothing to do again today. Just gonna watch tennis, descale taps and clean the shower.

I know the one. Yep it is a prism.

not_so_insig 28-06-2022 11:43 AM

I didnt realise it was from China as it was from a third party seller on amazon. I assumed it was from Europe. I didnt find out until it was despatched.

nonperson 28-06-2022 12:11 PM

That's tricked me before too.

And yesterday I was about to buy some shorts on Amazon and only realised something dodgy was going on when they tried to charge me a tenner for postage and that it would arrive in August!

No thank you.

one_step_closer 28-06-2022 12:23 PM

Hey everyone, I hope you're having a good day.

Enjoy your new nails., Beckie.

A lot of the descriptions of products on Amazon etc say they are from the UK but turn out to be from China. That's just wrong.

nonperson 28-06-2022 12:27 PM

It's very wrong. The brand names usually give it away as well sometimes.

one_step_closer 28-06-2022 12:32 PM

I once went to what looked like a legit shoe website with legit prices and bought some blue Adidas shoes and when they arrived they were fakes and weren't even blue. I didn't get my money back. I need to try to remember to look at Trustpilot if I'm on a website I'm not familiar with. This company had terrible reviews obviously. I can be pretty stupid when I see what looks like a good deal.

I'm having to wait in for a gas check this afternoon. I hope they don't come too late and aren't here long. Not that I have anywhere to go. It's strong winds and rain today. Sounds like it's just getting started with the rain.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 01:48 PM

I have had my nails done!
They are awesome!
Well, apart from one little finger! The nail ripped when getting the old extensions off. So she couldn't do that one. But have an appointment on Friday to give it time to recover and then do it!

Buying stuff online is always a risk!

one_step_closer 28-06-2022 02:10 PM

I hope you'll be posting pictures, Beckie. What are you getting up to now?

Gas person has just arrived.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 02:16 PM

I will!

I was going to go to a charity type place to drop off some strong supermarket bags for their food bank (i have loads that i don't need) but it looks like it could pour down with rain any minute so I'll go another day.
So I'm just waiting in for an amazon delivery and it's glow beatz tonight!

Hopefully they won't take too long lindsay!

nonperson 28-06-2022 02:34 PM

I'm also waiting for an Amazon delivery today.

I dunno why but this nail talk makes me cringe a bit. I'm not squeamish when it comes to broken nails (mine are usually terrible), I think it's the thought of extentions and stuff. For some reason it really creeps me out!

I hope they're not super long bitch claw type ones, Beckie! >.>

I bet the prisms look awesome though =)

Hope the gas check goes ok, Lindsay!

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 02:42 PM

Fair enough!

Noooo i can't stand the really long ones!
Mine are at a length that some people can grow naturally. I can't though because my nails have always broken before getting to any length!

nonperson 28-06-2022 02:52 PM

I didn't think they'd be like those awful long ones. Do they feel chunky and like... there? That's a weird question. I just can't imagine what it's like.

I can grow mine long, they're like super strong for some reason.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 03:00 PM

Definitely not! My nail person said she HATES when people ask for the super long ones! Lol

I do notice them, simply because I'm not used to them! Not chunky though!

Maybe you get lots of vitamin E? I think that's the hair and nail one

nonperson 28-06-2022 03:46 PM

Hmm maybe.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 03:55 PM

I used to bite my nails a lot.
Stopped years ago but they still don't grow to any good length! It's annoying

nonperson 28-06-2022 04:00 PM

Long nails are overrated =)

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 04:12 PM

I suppose so!

Have you got any plans for this evening?

nonperson 28-06-2022 04:33 PM

Well, actually I've been toying with the idea of going for a walk to a particular landmark and watch the sunset.

Cacoethes 28-06-2022 04:35 PM

That sounds like a lovely thing to do!
