I'll have to order a 4 one when I get out then!

chinahorse 19-05-2020 05:57 PM

Think I got mine off amazon beckie.

Glad you're feeling better Dawn.

I had such a stressful morrisons trip earlier and I cant calm down. And I've lost one of the balls from one of my industrial bars.

one_step_closer 19-05-2020 06:28 PM

I just have a boring black one that I put a sticker on that says 'it's ok if you need meds every day.'

My cats are too fat for extra treats!

I'm glad you're feeling better Dawn, hope that's you back to being well again.

Can you make a duvet fort Lillie and hide in there? What usually helps calm you down?

chinahorse 19-05-2020 06:36 PM

Trade cats? I'm trying to fatten mine up and it's not working. Have ordered him some high protein food and will try that and see.

Cool sticker.

I will make tea. Cat is onthe bed so no disturbing him.

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 10:04 AM

Hi, anyone here?

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 10:18 AM

Hey, I'm about Tamo. Are you ok?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 10:26 AM

Yeah I'm ok, how are you? How was your night?

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 10:32 AM

I slept ok anyway. Did you get some sleep? What are you getting up to today?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 10:47 AM

I did thanks, only woke up twice. I think I will go for a walk later. Are you up to anything?

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 12:26 PM

I hope you enjoy your walk. It's a nice day for it here, what's the weather like with you? I'm going to try and go to Tesco later.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 12:49 PM

Hey guys
Only got up at lunchtime
It's so hot!!!

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 12:54 PM

Lovely blue skys here. It's so warm I'm not wearing a jumper!

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 01:12 PM

It is TOO warm!

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 01:23 PM

Is the hospital heating still on?

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 01:45 PM

Yep! It never gets turned off, just turned down. And only maintenance have control over it

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 01:45 PM

Hospitals are trying to get you to sweat out any illness.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 01:46 PM

I think that may be it!

I'm going to be allowed out to the shop later!
First time doing something normal in 3 months!
Also first time leaving the hospital for non a&e purposes in 3 months

chinahorse 20-05-2020 01:55 PM

Yay beckie. Be good and enjoy the coke.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 02:07 PM

Thank you!!
How are you Lillie?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2020 02:14 PM

Good luck Cacoethes. Stay safe!

chinahorse 20-05-2020 02:24 PM

I'm ok thanks. Boots had all my prescription which is a rarity. My playsuit broke though so I've paper clipped it back together lol.

Hows things tamo?

not_so_insig 20-05-2020 02:26 PM

Afternoon all. My internet went down last night but thankfully is back again. Have to go to the postbox today to post some postcards for postcrossing but am currently waiting for my Amazon parcel. In theory it should fit through the letterbox but knowing my luck as soon as I step outside the Amazon man will come.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 02:55 PM

Thanks tamo!
Going to the shop was so good!
So sad that I got this excited about it lol :p

Glad that boots had all your prescription Lillie! Boo to broken play suit though

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 03:19 PM

Yay for going to the shop! I would have been excited too!

Is a playsuit like a dress?

I hope you get your Amazon delivery ok Dawn.

chinahorse 20-05-2020 03:33 PM

What did you get at the shop beckie? And dontbe daft it's a big thing in your current situation.

Its erm like a cut off boiler suit lindsay. So instead of the skirt bit of the dress its shorts.

not_so_insig 20-05-2020 03:41 PM

My amazon parcel has arrived. It's 2 greetings cards as my dad's birthday and father's day are next month so I got some cards whilst I remembered. Doubt I will see my parents by then so I guess I will have to post them. Idk what to do about a present though.

chinahorse 20-05-2020 04:19 PM

Thatll fit through your letterbox surely? Unless you've got those ones that are like a bed sheet size. Hmm would he expect a present? Or could you do something nice together when thjngs are open again?

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 05:43 PM

I just got coke zero and a sokata flavour fanta! I don't know what was in it because the label wasn't English but it was nice!

nonperson 20-05-2020 05:54 PM

That's a risk, Beckie! I don't think I'd try anything unless I knew what was in it. Glad it was nice though. How did you find the whole social distancing stuff?

I'm so hot and sweaty and dirty and disgusting that I don't know what to do with myself. *whine*

chinahorse 20-05-2020 06:12 PM

Was it blue beckie?

Shower seems like a solid plan np

not_so_insig 20-05-2020 06:29 PM

I will text my mum and see what she says about a present. Sadly there's no buses to my parents house due to coronavirus so I will have to post as you cant meet anyone outside your household in Wales not even outside. Unless it changes by next month.

I had an shower and washed my hair. Gotta tidy up because my cpn is coming tomorrow and it's also bin day today.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 06:36 PM

I'm a rebel :p
Social distancing was quite difficult seeing as no one seemed to care about it!

The bottle was blue Lillie but the drink wasn't

I also vote shower!

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 06:36 PM

Happy RYL Bin Night!

My bin is already out. I was very happy last Thursday when my cardboard and paper bin was emptied.

one_step_closer 20-05-2020 06:37 PM

That's false advertisement, there should have been blue stuff in the bottle!

nonperson 20-05-2020 06:40 PM

Totally a rebel!

I keep forgetting to put my bins out... and they've changed it to alternating weeks too. Still the same day though! =)

I will shower in a minute. Nearly ready to move now. >.>

chinahorse 20-05-2020 06:45 PM

I always forget what week is what np. If I totally forget my landlord does it and I do his if I get there first.

How rude of it beckie! Google tells me its elderflower and lemon. Which seems a tad exotic for fanta.

I need to shower too. But am cooking dinner first.

nonperson 20-05-2020 06:53 PM

I've had to write "blue bin" and "black bin" on my calendar but I don't always look at it. >.>

That's nice you do each other's bins. =)

Elderflower and lemon sounds nice! I like elderflower and lime so it must be similar and probably really refreshing in this heat.

My plan is the other way round - shower and then do dinner. It's not working as an incentive to move though, hm.

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 06:59 PM

I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't blue tbh!

I'm glad I don't have to worry about bins right now!

Whats for dinner Lillie and np?


chinahorse 20-05-2020 07:03 PM

I had a handy print out when I moved in but I've no clue where I put it. Now I just wait until someone else puts theirs out first.

Never tasted elderflower.

chinahorse 20-05-2020 07:03 PM

Pizza. Because nomnomnom

not_so_insig 20-05-2020 07:04 PM

I had cheese and marmite toasties for my tea. I might have an yoghurt later. A Muller corner one.

nonperson 20-05-2020 07:10 PM

I get all my bin info from my local council's website, might be worth a look on yours, Lillie.

I'm thinking sweet potato chips and something for dinner.

Yum, pizza!

Elderflower is quite sweet, I think. Not sure I've had it on it's own, always with lime in a cordial or cider. Yumyum.

chinahorse 20-05-2020 07:12 PM

Yeah I think it has a thing where you enter your postcode and it tells you but I'm not that invested. Copying others seems to be working ok.

Mmmm sweet potato chips are ace.

Wiki da am tempted to get something elderflower flavoured now.

nonperson 20-05-2020 07:16 PM

I usually buy a bottle of some sort of elderflower squash for the summer, I think Robinsons did a fancyish one at some point that was quite nice. Or Belvoir but more expensive.

chinahorse 20-05-2020 07:24 PM

But what if I dont like it and then have a whole bottle?!

not_so_insig 20-05-2020 07:57 PM

I signed up to bin collection reminder emails so I don't have to remember what day it is.

nonperson 20-05-2020 08:03 PM

Haven't got a service like that here.

I am cleeeean. =)

Good point, Lillie. Erm... send it to me? =P

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 08:05 PM

Yum pizza!

Sweet potato chips are always good

I never used to like elderflower
My mum used to make elderflower cordial from scratch and it was yuck but clearly I like it now!

nonperson 20-05-2020 08:19 PM

It's probably very different when it's homemade!

Cacoethes 20-05-2020 09:15 PM

Everyone else loved it!
