Nice work! I saw your post about the chocolate too. Congrats on resisting! I'm not so sure I could've done the same. Since knocking alcohol on the head, my body has been craving sugar like mad... and mainly in the form Reese's and Cadburys. :laugh:

Cacoethes 09-06-2023 07:54 PM

Faster i send it, faster i get money!

Reeses is amazing tbh!
Cadbury isn't as good as it was sadly!
But i found that asdas own plain milk chocolate (like for baking) is really good! And it's a big bar for something like 33p!

StepSoftlyGhost 09-06-2023 07:57 PM

Yeah, it's certainly gone downhill since it was bought out. All these weird hybrid chocolates coming out, when they should just streamline it and make it better. And bigger too! Is it just me or are the bars getting smaller by the week?

Cacoethes 09-06-2023 07:58 PM

Yeah they definitely are!
And freddos are a ridiculous price now, but smaller!

tamobhuuta 09-06-2023 08:09 PM

I remember the 10p freddo.

Cacoethes 09-06-2023 08:23 PM

Yep, me too!
They're like 25p now!

EDIT: googled, they're actually 30p! What a rip off, when you can get big bar from asda for 33p!

not_so_insig 09-06-2023 08:45 PM

I remember penny sweets I am that old.

Cacoethes 09-06-2023 08:48 PM

I think I'd been in some shops that did penny sweets when we lived in london!
So 1995-2000ish

Same here. I dread walking past pick 'n' mix stands now with my kid in case he wants any and I need to re-mortgage the house!

nonperson 09-06-2023 09:20 PM

Evening everyone.

Did someone say Reeses? *drool*

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 06:09 AM

Reeses is sooo good!

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 10-06-2023 10:08 AM

Morning. How are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 10:23 AM

I am very warm!
It's 22C already! Just waiting for the bus to see Jasmine.

How are you?

long road 10-06-2023 10:24 AM


I am off out shortly to roleplay in person with friends until 4:30pm. Really looking forward to it we are trying a new system where we are in a space station

tamobhuuta 10-06-2023 11:13 AM

Have fun both of you. I've got big sis coming round this afternoon. Looking forward to sitting under the gazebo :)

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 11:19 AM

Hope you have a lovely time jen!

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 12:52 PM

Afternoon everyone, I hope you all have good days. Looks like you have some nice things planned.

It's the Gala day here and I was hoping to avoid the procession but nope. I kind of had to watch it twice because I was stuck at first then walked to the chemist but it was shut to watch the procession so I had to wait till it was finished and they opened again. Was difficult because there were huge crowds everywhere and I needed to get to the post office before it shut. Glad to be home but I was a bit anxious about the time and feeling run down but I had to do all my housework before I sat down. All done! I did see those zorb ball things at the fun fair bit that were in a big paddling pool and little people were crawling inside them. They also had a cool bouncy castle that was all covered and was black inside. They never had cool stuff like that when I was a child.

Then got a lovely card from Beckie in the post. :-) Yesterday my brother mysteriously said I will be getting two deliveries today and to open the Amazon one last.

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 02:08 PM

That sounds very annoying lindsay!
Glad you got home ok!

Glad you like the card!
Ooh parcels sound exciting!

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 02:17 PM

How's your day going, Beckie? Are you meant to get bad weather tomorrow? It's supposed to be thunder storms here.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 02:20 PM

They used to have the zorb balls on water on the pier at my favourite seaside place. Now they have all sorts of kids rides which causes a bottleneck in places in the summer. Last time i went there i got overwhelmed due to the crowds.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 02:28 PM

Also if anyone is planning to go out whilst it's warm remember to take a drink with you. Some mh meds make your prone to dehydration and overheating. Also some mh meds make your skin sensitive to sunlight so slap on some suncream on if that's the case.

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 02:39 PM

Good advice, Dawn. How are you doing today?

I just got the parcels from my brother. He sent me some dried flowers with a card saying 'some other colours to consider when all appears blue' and luckily the second parcel was a vase (shaped like a female face and on the gift note he wrote 'a clear head for bright thoughts.' So kind but I only asked him for a card! I'm not surprised he got me gifts instead, I don't think he would know what to write in a card.

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 02:39 PM

We've had a severe weather alert for storms from thurs to sat. Which makes no sense XD
Been there since Thursday. But it's 29!
Forecast says 'possible stray storm' in the afternoon. And Monday too.
Hope not. I'm at work on Monday!

that's lovely of your brother lindsay!

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 02:41 PM

Does that mean you might have to wear your jacket?!

tamobhuuta 10-06-2023 02:43 PM

31 here, not a single cloud. Well done osc for persevering.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 02:44 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. I received a parcel today. It was a dolls house. I had the exact same one as a kiddie.

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 02:48 PM

Are you coping with the heat ok, Tamo?

What are you going to do with the dolls house, Dawn? I still have one that my Dad made from scratch when I was a child.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 02:53 PM

Probably display it Lindsay. It is a lot bigger than what I remember it.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 02:55 PM

It's 26 degrees here. We are supposed to get thunderstorms here today and tomorrow though it's supposed to be hit and miss. Fortunately my flat is cool as its solid built.

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 03:20 PM

29c here.

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 03:45 PM

I don't know what the temperature is here and I can't be bothered to check! I'm a nice temperature inside my house.

tamobhuuta 10-06-2023 04:54 PM

I am hot but ok :)

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 05:08 PM

What are you all doing with the rest of the day?

long road 10-06-2023 05:20 PM

Hello! I am home from roleplaying had a great time and we scared off the robot dragon that was terrifying and murdering people. And got enough XP to get to level 2!

Now I am going to have a nap in front of my fan as being out of the house for 6 hours is a lot for me. I even climbed the stairs to my friends bathroom twice and I live in ground floor flat stairs are not a daily occurrence for me!

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 05:29 PM

Wow, Jen. Sounds intense! Well done for getting to level 2 even though I don't know what that means! :laugh: I'm really glad you enjoyed your day. I hope your nap is a good one.

long road 10-06-2023 05:33 PM

Level 2 means we get some extra special powers To use next time we play and we become tougher. It was amazing fun. Yes I know I should be napping...

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 05:53 PM

Extra special powers sound good, use them wisely! I hope you are napping now or I will get my stompy foot out again.

long road 10-06-2023 06:30 PM

I didn't manage to nap, brain declined to let me, but I did lie down resting for almost an hour. Think I am hungry as I am cold when it is very hot so have had a snack and will try and nap again after we have had dinner.

I will do my best I help the universe with my special powers

Cacoethes 10-06-2023 06:40 PM

I'm going to miller and carter for the first time!

long road 10-06-2023 06:46 PM

Ooh fancy! For a date?

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 06:56 PM

Brains are annoying sometimes. I hope your rest helped a bit and you can have a proper sleep at some point.

I've never heard of Miller and Carter.

long road 10-06-2023 07:08 PM

Miller and Carter is steakhouse. So they do steaks, grilled meats and fishes, burgers that kind of thing.

With FND my brain is often a troll. Like right now it has tightened the muscle along the outside of my big toe and it's locked in a weird position and a bit painful

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 07:12 PM

That sounds very sore. Is it a bit like cramp?

That sounds like a very posh restaurant, are you going to dress up, Beckie? Or is that not a thing?

long road 10-06-2023 07:18 PM

A little like a cramp or like when you have sprained a muscle like a stabby pain.

Beckie is already wearing a dress today so technically she is already dressed up!

one_step_closer 10-06-2023 07:22 PM

She is going to the restaurant today?

Does anything help when that happens, Jen?

long road 10-06-2023 07:42 PM

I assumed because she isn't here right now. I don't know though.

Sometimes massaging it or stretching it helps, sometimes heat and if pain gets bad painkillers. Massage has got it to low level pain so avoiding meds for now.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 08:57 PM

I hope Beckie is ok and nothing serious has happened to her.

I have transferred all the songs I bought in the past year to my lost but now found ipod. Only 38 songs which isn't that bad.

long road 10-06-2023 09:14 PM

How much empty space do you have on your iPod with which you are now reunited?

My old 5th gen iPod nano is full and I haven't updated it since around 2015. Nowadays zi have stuff downloaded on my phone or I stream through Amazon music. iPod is taken when I go away though as a good backup and to save battery on my phone if I am travelling.

not_so_insig 10-06-2023 09:25 PM

Over 75gb I have left on 3 of my ipods. The other has 35gb but it's an ipod with less memory.

I use my ipods to fall asleep to. I found that if I used my phone it would randomly text people when I am asleep or I would wake up with back ache the next morning from lying on it all night.

long road 10-06-2023 09:38 PM

That makes sense. I hadn't thought of doing that, I use my phone because I like to listen to a wide variety of things when I try to sleep (podcasts, Audiobooks, music) and I change it up a lot. But I do sometimes go to turn back on what I am listening to after a sleep timer or chose something new to listen to and end up on the internet
