It does!
Its gone now thankfully!

nonperson 04-11-2021 12:16 PM

I don't like that sort of cramp that builds up slowly, then you get rid of it but then it keeps happening over and over!

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 12:34 PM

I don't think I've had that, thank goodness.

not_so_insig 04-11-2021 12:37 PM

Morning all. I have had a postcard today. It was sent in June but the sender sent it surface mail so that explains why it took a long time to get here. It came from Hong Kong.

nonperson 04-11-2021 12:46 PM


Cacoethes 04-11-2021 12:51 PM

I know that's awful np!

I've just arrived at work!
I started to panic because I could smell smoke but then remembered the fire lol

nonperson 04-11-2021 01:13 PM

Are you in charge of it today? =P

Hope your shift goes quickly.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 03:50 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope your shift goes well Beckie.

What have you all been up to today after much deciding?

tamobhuuta 04-11-2021 04:32 PM

I showered!

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 04:47 PM

Well done Tamo :-D

Is that your big thing done for the day and now you can relax or do you have something else to do?

nonperson 04-11-2021 04:48 PM

I also showered!

And that is all I have been up to really apart from looking up new cat beds.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 04:53 PM

I'm not having a shower today!

Does Geordie need a new bed or is it a treat?

nonperson 04-11-2021 05:07 PM

He needs a new radiator bed and I kinda want to get one to go on the sofa so he doesn't keep sitting on me all the time. Trouble is I can't choose - there are too many options.

one_step_closer 04-11-2021 06:45 PM

Ah, too many choices is hard. Do you think he'd choose to sit on a cat bed next to you or would continue to sit on you?

nonperson 04-11-2021 07:19 PM

Well I've put an old pillow covered in one of his blankets next to me as a trial and he's curled up and happily snoring away on it right now! Might not need to buy anything after all. =P

Although I like the idea of a cat sleeping bag, haha.

nonperson 04-11-2021 07:48 PM

OMG, I've just had an Amazon parcel turn up that I'd declared missing and got a refund for... 11 weeks ago.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 07:51 PM

Hey everyone!
Work was pretty busy and guess who was on her own again after 3pm?!

That's odd np!

At least you have it now!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:03 PM

Are you supposed to be on your own?

Very odd. I already bought a replacement when this one didn't turn up so now I have 2 spare toilet roll spring things!

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:07 PM

The whole point of me being on bar is so I'm not on my own! (That's what they told HR anyway....)
It happens pretty much every shift though

Oh! Well you can never have too many :p

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:15 PM

Also, apparently I say 'sauvignon blanc' in a really posh way?
I say it like 'sohhvignon' with the long o.
But everyone else says it like 'savignon' like with a sav instead of oh??

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:19 PM

I'd bring it up with HR again to be honest. If they're not adhering to the things to keep you safe then that is careless and unacceptable.

You might need to ask google how to pronounce that. I'd probably say SAV too but wouldn't be surprised if that was the common unsophisticated way of saying it!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:23 PM


You're right!

The French man waffles on a bit but says Savignon is mostly Australian but still acceptable ish.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:33 PM

I don't really want to bring it up
There's Usually people around anyway
There's a booth opposite the bar which is basically a staff table so there's Usually someone sitting there doing manager stuff

So I am basically doing it in a posh way then!
I blame my middle class upbringing! Lol

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:35 PM

Understandable, but if you feel like it's not right it's always worth just having a casual chat with someone if you're worried.

And nah not posh, it is the proper way to say it.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:47 PM

Nah it's all good.
As long as I have someone to take over when I need 5 minutes of fresh air

I like to say things properly!

It is very cold
Honeycomb coffee time I think!

nonperson 04-11-2021 08:52 PM

Good. =)

Honeycomb is yum.

I'm pondering soup...

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 08:59 PM

It is yum!

What kind of soup?

nonperson 04-11-2021 09:03 PM

I dunno, something tinned. Can't remember what I've got in the cupboard but can't be arsed with anything else tonight.

Cacoethes 04-11-2021 09:08 PM

I know the feeling!

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 09:08 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 05-11-2021 10:38 AM


First frost of the year last night. It's still on the grass, brr.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 10:39 AM

It is sooo cold!
I don't want to come out from under my blanket!

nonperson 05-11-2021 10:47 AM

I reluctantly got out of bed because I was being pestered for food =( And have put the heating on as well so I'm not feeling too chilly at the moment.

What're you up to today? Or rather - do you need to emerge from under the blanket at all?

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 10:53 AM

I refuse to put the heating on in the mornings I've got work because I'm going out soon anyway.
Glad you've warmed up!

Unfortunately I do. I have work at 12 :'(

Luna! How are you?

nonperson 05-11-2021 10:55 AM

Yeah, that makes sense. I'm not going anywhere so need some warmth!

Work has a fire so that's a good enough swap? =)

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 10:58 AM

It was absolutely boiling at work yesterday!
Heating on plus fire!

nonperson 05-11-2021 11:11 AM

Well that's a lot of dumbness right there =/ You don't need both.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 11:13 AM

Well, it is a very big pub and the fire is only in the bar area
I don't think the restaurant was that hot!

nonperson 05-11-2021 11:24 AM

Oh that makes a bit more sense, I suppose. But still, could turn off the heating where the fire is or something.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 11:28 AM

Yeah they could do!
I may suggest it!

tamobhuuta 05-11-2021 11:53 AM

We had frost too. I'm wearing the world's warmest hoodie slash dressing gown.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 12:00 PM


I have to leave soon
Into the freezing cold D:

Also. I've had too much coffee and my stomach isn't happy with me

tamobhuuta 05-11-2021 12:23 PM

Wrap up warm!

tamobhuuta 05-11-2021 01:28 PM

I'm wearing leggings and trackie bottoms.

nonperson 05-11-2021 04:31 PM

Double layering is a good idea. Reminds me that I need to order some thermals for work...

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 07:51 PM


The walk home was horrendous!
Fireworks going off all around me!
So loud!
Also TWO buses I would have been able to get drove past me 10 minutes into my walk. They usually come at 6pm meaning I miss them but must have been running really late. GAH!!!

nonperson 05-11-2021 08:07 PM

Hey. Ugh, unlucky about the buses. =/

I've just been out to watch some fireworks. It's not nice when they surprise you though.

Was work ok otherwise for a Friday?

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 08:13 PM

Sooo unlucky!

How were the fireworks?

Yeah it was fine thanks.
Busy over lunch then settled a bit. Then it was starting to get busy again around 5.

How's your day been?

nonperson 05-11-2021 08:17 PM

Glad it wasn't too busy, I guess it'll get worse after 6pm!

I thought it was a good display this year. It's only a very small local one, like 15 mins or so. Cried the entire way through because I'm weird x.x

Day's been ok, went over to see my friend for a while this morning instead of her coming over here for a walk. Her 2 year old boy is seriously the cutest little person ever.

Cacoethes 05-11-2021 08:25 PM


Awww bless you. I'm glad it was a good display though.

That sounds good!
