All apples other than Pink Lady are disappointing.

Cacoethes 27-09-2018 08:57 PM

Gala apples are my favourite!

nonperson 27-09-2018 09:00 PM

I dunno what Gala apples taste like... but they have to be crisp and sweet for me to eat them. None of that fluffy/powdery apple texture.

Cacoethes 27-09-2018 09:06 PM

Gala apples are sweet
Not so crisp though, they are quite soft.
I did go through a pink lady phase but definitely gala now

Eska 27-09-2018 09:13 PM

Braeburn all the way.

Cacoethes 27-09-2018 09:19 PM

Not a fan of braeburn
Too sour!

Aubergine 27-09-2018 09:32 PM

I'm with Person on the apple thing!

nonperson 27-09-2018 10:09 PM

Jazz apples are also an acceptable alternative.

I have made a baking blunder... It's turning into a bit of guesswork on the actual cooking time and also I need to chill some more shortbread dough but I've run out of baking trays so tried to put it on a fridge shelf... but had to take the shelf out first because the baking paper is too flimsy to lift... but now can't get the shelf back into the fridge!

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 11:30 AM

Morning guys

I hope you sorted your baking troubles np!!

Eska 28-09-2018 12:20 PM

How did the shortbread turn out? Did you manage to get the shelf back into the fridge?

Beckie, how is your day going?

nonperson 28-09-2018 01:44 PM

Yeah it’s all good, thanks guys. =P

Not my best shortbread but still tasty.

I’ve eaten so much cake today. =)

one_step_closer 28-09-2018 01:54 PM

Hi everyone, cake sounds very good. :-)

What's everyone getting up to?

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 01:58 PM

Mmmm cake!!

I'm at the gym cafe having a coffee and resisting all the cake and cookies and flapjacks on display!
Did over an hour in the pool today so feeling good!

What's everyone up to?

one_step_closer 28-09-2018 02:04 PM

Beckie, you are so strong resisting cake! Well done with your swim. Are you exhausted? Hope you're enjoying your coffee. Got anything planned afterwards?

I went to Lidl and looked at books in charity shops although I have more than enough books. Will maybe go a walk later on. It seems warmer here today but the news/weather said it's supposed to be colder. Strange.

I watched Hotel Transylvania last night. Not very impressed sadly!

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 02:07 PM

Thanks!!
I am enjoying my coffee.
Got to go to the shops but that's about it.
Should probably clean the house but meh


The weather people are never right!

Aw did you not like it?
I do! Lol

one_step_closer 28-09-2018 02:14 PM

Meh to cleaning the house, I agree. Although I am trying to hoover most days now due to flea situation. Do you have anything specific to get at the shops?

I think I'm maybe just not a film lover in general but I expected Hotel Transylvania to be better than it was. Don't think I'll watch the other 2.

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 02:21 PM

Just lunch and dinner stuff.
And milk and fabric softener.
Nothing exciting!

That's fair enough!
We all have different tastes

one_step_closer 28-09-2018 07:14 PM

Did you get your shopping done Beckie?

I ended up having to go to the vet for their recommended flea treatment because I hoovered and the cats were not happy (didn't realise this brings fleas to the surface) and I was sad and worried about them so I phoned the vet and they said the stuff I had been using (Bob Martin) doesn't even work and it might be getting taken off the shelves.

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 07:19 PM

I did!
Although didn't get the fabric softener because it was too heavy to carry back with everything else.

Oh no Lindsay!
Is there an alternative treatment you can use?

not_so_insig 28-09-2018 07:44 PM

Bob Martin doesn't work. Best thing is to buy front line online from a pet med website because it's cheaper than the vets. You can buy front line spot on from pets at home if time is a problem otherwise if you want the spray it's online. I use vetuk or viovet website. I know that you have stuff now but it's a heads up for the future.

nonperson 28-09-2018 07:51 PM

I get Frontline from Amazon.

nonperson 28-09-2018 07:55 PM

And also both the Bob Martin spot-on and Frontline have the same amount of the same chemical so they should both work the same! I wonder why they don't. =/

not_so_insig 28-09-2018 07:56 PM

Amazon only sells the spot on as due to vet license laws you have to go to a vet specific website for the spray. Also I saw on the telly people have had fake front line from amazon marketplace whereas pet med websites won't sell fake stuff.

nonperson 28-09-2018 07:59 PM

Spot-on works just fine and I've never needed or used a spray. The Amazon stuff has always been genuine. *shrug*

not_so_insig 28-09-2018 08:05 PM

Tbf it was third party sellers not amazon themselves. I use the spray myself as one of mine has a thick coat and I find that pentrates the coat better.

zombiehunter 28-09-2018 08:10 PM

time to blast some MEEEEEEETAAAAAAAAAL \m/

nonperson 28-09-2018 08:13 PM

*headbangs*

zombiehunter 28-09-2018 08:16 PM

*utheadbangs NP* \m/

nonperson 28-09-2018 08:22 PM

Is that a metal term I don't know? o.O

zombiehunter 28-09-2018 08:25 PM

I invented it :-p

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 08:34 PM

I've just downloaded some new music
I heard a great cover of 'zombie' by the cranberries by nightcore in the tattoo shop the other day and I love it

zombiehunter 28-09-2018 08:37 PM

have you heard the cover of zombies by the cranberries by bad wolves?

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 08:40 PM

Thats the one i listened to
Its under both nightcore and bad wolves
Its awesome

nonperson 28-09-2018 08:56 PM

I don't like it. They played it too much on Kerrang!

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 08:58 PM

I used to love Kerrang when we had Sky at home!
Would watch it all the time

nonperson 28-09-2018 09:01 PM

It's on freesat too. =)

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 09:03 PM

I don't have it.
For some reason my tv deleted a load of channels and I cant get them back!

nonperson 28-09-2018 09:05 PM

I have also got that problem!

Or the channels have moved and I can't rescan for some reason...

Cacoethes 28-09-2018 09:06 PM

It is very strange!!
I miss Dave

zombiehunter 28-09-2018 11:35 PM

i was watching commando :-D

nonperson 29-09-2018 09:32 AM

Oh no, Beckie. You can't get Dave? That is truly a disaster. I've just lost some of the +1 channels but not the normal one, or I've lost the normal one but still have the +1! Confusing.

Does anyone watch Taskmaster on Dave?

Cacoethes 29-09-2018 11:16 AM

I don't have the +1 channels either

I LOVE taskmaster!!
Its hilarious

one_step_closer 29-09-2018 01:49 PM

Hello. How are you all?

Me and the cats are stuck in my brother's bedroom for a bit after I sprayed the flea stuff in the rest of the rooms because you have to ventilate for an hour. Luckily we only have about 5 minutes to go because they are digging at the door trying to get out. I have no idea how they survived in the cattery for so long.

nonperson 29-09-2018 02:12 PM

Eek, cats do not like being contained.

Or in the case of my cat, he doesn't like being locked out of places either... like the bathroom cupboard.

Cacoethes 29-09-2018 02:46 PM

That doesn't sound fun Lindsay!

I'm at my mum's.
Jasmine has gone to the football with the boys all day but I came anyway to see my mum. Sister is here too but she's being a teenager!

nonperson 29-09-2018 02:58 PM

Hope you're having a nice time despite the teenage tantrums?

I'm trying to write a shopping list...

Cacoethes 29-09-2018 03:16 PM

She's just had a strop because she couldn't find the pepper to go on her bacon sandwich.
Oh to have her problems!

one_step_closer 29-09-2018 03:56 PM

Teenage strops are often similar to toddler strops.

I hope you're having an alright time Beckie.

Did you get the list written NP?

nonperson 29-09-2018 04:18 PM

Partially written. But I gave up and I’m now sitting outside while the dog wanders around my garden. Can’t be arsed to walk him today plus his owners are getting back soon so I’ve been throwing a ball around the garden for him.
