Cacoethes 24-07-2022 12:31 PM

27 here apparently!
Next week is supposed to be ok weather wise!

nonperson 24-07-2022 12:32 PM

Yep low to mid 20s until Friday.

I'm a bit worried my washing is going to ping off the line and end up over the fence...

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 12:42 PM


Oh no! That wouldn't be good!
I do wish i had outside space to hang out laundry.
It smells so much better when it's been hung out to dry!

not_so_insig 24-07-2022 12:48 PM

I have an communal line in my block of flats but I never use it.

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 01:29 PM

I sometimes hang my washing outside but worry it will just collect pollen.

NP, I meant to ask how is Geordie?

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 01:34 PM

Also, I looked up 'pilates bed' and if the right one is coming up it looks like a torture device.

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 01:36 PM

Haha! Yep it does look a bit like a torture device! XD

nonperson 24-07-2022 01:39 PM

Hey Lindsay. Geordi's getting on ok. No more puss =) He's gone off his food a bit though. I wonder if it's the antibiotics... We've got our follow up appointment tomorrow so I'll ask then.

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 01:39 PM

I'm going to buy one to use on my enemies, I'm sure I can find a creative way to torture them. :laugh: Nah, I don't have any enemies.

What are you doing right now?

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 01:40 PM

Ninja NP.

I'm glad Geordie is improving. I hope he's eating better soon.

Maybe weirdly I've never seen any pus coming out of Crookshanks anal glands when they have burst. I think there was some left inside but it was at the time when owners weren't allowed in the vet. It would have been disgusting yet interesting to see them squeeze the pus out!

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 01:43 PM

Do it lindsay! XD

I am sad because I've just watched the last episode of criminal minds (again!)
I've been binge watching it from the start
15 seasons, roughly 20 episodes per season!
Going to have to find something else to waste my life on now! lol

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 01:45 PM

Oh no, that's a shame. You've watched Nurse Jackie haven't you? That's the show that left me feeling sad that it had ended. Oh and Wentworth Prison.

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 02:06 PM

Ah yes i liked nurse jackie! That was a good series!
I liked what i saw of Wentworth. Haven't watched it properly though!

Currently now listening to songs by shinedown on shuffle!

You up to much?

not_so_insig 24-07-2022 02:48 PM

Hello all. Has anyone tried a hair mask? I am considering buying one from amazon.

nonperson 24-07-2022 03:04 PM

I'm also listening to Shinedown, surprisingly. Spotted the lyrics in your r/v, Beckie ;-)

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 03:06 PM

Love a good lyrics post :tongue2:

not_so_insig 24-07-2022 03:46 PM

I have now bought a hair mask from amazon. Along with other stuff.

one_step_closer 24-07-2022 04:46 PM

You'll need to let us know how the hair mask goes Dawn. You're an Amazon addict!

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 04:54 PM

I too have an amazon delivery coming today!
I have slowed down on the amazon front though!
I have now stocked up on all toiletries so won't need anything for a while now.

nonperson 24-07-2022 06:59 PM

How do you always get Sunday deliveries?

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 07:00 PM

I get paid on Fridays so i order then or on Saturday!

nonperson 24-07-2022 07:07 PM

But I order stuff on Saturdays and it won't come until Monday =(

not_so_insig 24-07-2022 07:22 PM

Do you have a prime account nonperson? My stuff should come tomorrow.

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 07:25 PM

It really varies sometimes
Even with prime it depends on the product whether it's delivered next day or not

not_so_insig 24-07-2022 07:37 PM

Yes like last week I wanted an condolence card for my friend. They were all saying delivery Friday on Monday despite being prime eligible. I ordered it and they delivered it Thursday when I was out.

Cacoethes 24-07-2022 07:55 PM

Yeah it can be a bit random

Cacoethes 25-07-2022 08:04 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 25-07-2022 10:54 AM

Morning all.

one_step_closer 25-07-2022 02:31 PM

Afternoon, what are you all doing? How are you all?

not_so_insig 25-07-2022 02:37 PM

I am waiting for my amazon parcel. I am also suffering from hay-fever symptoms today so am sneezing a lot.

one_step_closer 25-07-2022 02:45 PM

I hate hay fever, I know how horrible it can make you feel so I hope yours starts to pass. Luckily I'm not too bad with it, at the moment, but it often gets annoying later on.

When is your parcel coming? Is it something that will cheer you up?

not_so_insig 25-07-2022 04:54 PM

It's become a lot better than this morning. I have had my amazon parcel most of it was boring stuff like hair mask, hair conditioner and a meat thermometer. I also got a cd and book to do with mindfulness. Alexa didn't provide me with an mindfulness exercise.

Also my bakewell pudding came today unexpectedly so might eat that later.

Pi.R^2 25-07-2022 08:46 PM

Bordering on rule-breaking and of course you should discuss with a pharmacist first but word on the street is that fexofenadine (previously prescription-only for hardcore allergy queens like myself) is available OTC now for all you hayfever folk.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 08:19 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 26-07-2022 10:24 AM

Hi :) how are you?

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:32 AM

Meh. I'll live


one_step_closer 26-07-2022 10:42 AM

*hugs Beckie if ok*

Morning everyone.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:44 AM

Thank you lindsay <3

Have you got much planned for today?

tamobhuuta 26-07-2022 11:26 AM

That doesn't sound good Cacoethes. Let us distract you!

How are you osc?

My job for the day is a shower.
I'm really pleased that my sisters' birthday presents have arrived.

Pi.R^2 26-07-2022 11:28 AM

Morning! What are your sister's birthday presents tamo?

I had to make three phone calls this morning and I deserve a standing ovation.

tamobhuuta 26-07-2022 11:34 AM

Hurray! You get a congratulatory badge :)

Big sister R got a rainbow light up mermaid barbie.
Younger sister N got a wooden pirate duck.

Also August is L's birthday and I've ordered her a bracelet with a bee on it.

Pi.R^2 26-07-2022 11:39 AM

Why thank you!

Oh, I misread the location of your apostrophe- multiple sisters having birthdays. Those sound like nice gifts; the bracelet sounds extra lovely :)

Are you psyching yourself up for your shower?

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 11:39 AM

*gives Jenna standing ovation*

They sound like good presents tamo!

tamobhuuta 26-07-2022 11:52 AM

That's ok Pi :)
I'm really pleased with them.

I'm just done with my coffee so it's time to pray, then I will DEFINITELY have my shower.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 12:25 PM

I need to shower also
But i like to shower in the evening after dinner

tamobhuuta 26-07-2022 01:36 PM

I would but wouldn't bother to dry my hair before bed. If I do it in the day I can let it air dry.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 01:41 PM

I always let it air dry.
I shower straight after dinner which is enough time for my hair to dry before bed

Pi.R^2 26-07-2022 03:16 PM

I have very strong opinions about showering in the mornings! I had to shower in the evening a little while ago and had to seek advice from an evening-showerer as I didn't like it. I also air dry my hair, which takes several hours so twice a week I rock up to work with still-wet hair *shrug*

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 03:29 PM

I like to relax in the mornings to psych myself up for work!
However, when i have had to shower in the morning, i do like it. And my hair always looks better

not_so_insig 26-07-2022 03:31 PM

I prefer to shower during the evening as I like to watch TV (usually quiz shows) when drying my hair. There's none suitable which you can follow when you have the noise of the hair dryer on during the day.
