I am ok thanks. Sitting inside daren't go out.

How are you?

Eska 30-01-2019 05:04 PM

Hi everyone

not_so_insig 30-01-2019 06:00 PM

Hi Eska

one_step_closer 31-01-2019 02:04 PM

It's oh so quiet, shhh, shhh. (Bjork).

not_so_insig 31-01-2019 02:22 PM

I am here!

Eska 31-01-2019 04:23 PM

Hiya! I'm in work and have run out of things to do

not_so_insig 31-01-2019 04:26 PM

Oh dear that's not good Eska.

Eska 31-01-2019 04:38 PM

Eh, it's ok. Just means I have to entertain myself for a bit.

one_step_closer 31-01-2019 06:52 PM

Hello Dawn and Eska.

I hope you managed to entertain yourself Eska. Are you finished for the day now?

What have you been up to Dawn?

nonperson 31-01-2019 07:23 PM

Evening all.

not_so_insig 31-01-2019 07:26 PM

Nothing much has been done today as it's been too cold and lethal to go out. Just watching telly and sleeping.

one_step_closer 31-01-2019 07:28 PM

It is mega freezing. Anything good on TV?

Hi NP, how are you getting on?

not_so_insig 31-01-2019 07:55 PM

Nothing interesting on the telly tonight.

nonperson 31-01-2019 08:00 PM

Star Trek DS9 is on now followed by Sliders. That's good TV! I might carry on watching Doctor Who on iPlayer though.

I'm getting on ok. Pondering dinner.

not_so_insig 31-01-2019 09:46 PM

I had home made pizza for dinner. With a garlic and herb dip (Also home made). Was yummy.

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 12:29 PM

Pizza sounds great.

How is everyone today?

nonperson 01-02-2019 12:33 PM


Mm, I really want pizza. It's snowing and I'm cold and not really sure what to do with myself today.

How're you?

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 12:40 PM

Doing things inside in the warmth sounds better than being cold. It's actually sunny here but really cold. Is there something you might like to do that you haven't had time for before?

I'm trying to be ok. Not got anything important to do today so will just see if I can alternate between TV and reading mostly.

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 12:43 PM

Better deal with the beeping washing machine first though.

nonperson 01-02-2019 01:06 PM

I hate beeping washing machines. Mine doesn't, thankfully.

Yeah I'm descaling taps and stuff, while internetting and watching tv. Exciting.

Kind of want to go for a walk in the snow though... but I don't want people to see me. =/

nonperson 01-02-2019 01:26 PM

iPlayer is not my friend today. Trying to watch Doctor Who but it's gone from the main screen and when I search I have to scroll back through each episode from series 11 to get to series 3!! And so far out of three attempts I've not made it past series 7 because the blasted thing keeps freezing!!!! I bet it works fine on my laptop but I want to watch it on my tv... FFS.


nonperson 01-02-2019 01:31 PM

Oh apparently it stops mid way through series 7... with no other episodes available? Wtf. *frown* Technology is ruining my day.

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 02:47 PM

Technology is a good friend until it goes wrong. Have you managed to sort out something to suit you?

If you go for a walk with your hood up you can try to pretend to yourself that no one can see you.

nonperson 01-02-2019 03:58 PM

I've found some recorded stuff to watch in the meantime. Stupid technology. =( Shows how reliant we are on it though...

I haven't been out yet but I still might. Putting hat on, hood up and music on is a good idea. The trouble is my house is in a work area so I have to get from my gate through the work yard without being spotted! Not that it'll matter really.. but eh. x.x

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 05:09 PM

I know, it's scary. When my TV reception is bad or the wifi is being slow or something it feels almost like the end of the world.

I can relate to not wanting to be seen. I hope you manage to get out if it's going to be good for you.

nonperson 01-02-2019 05:43 PM

Yeah, I had a powercut for about 40 mins a while ago and didn't know what to do with myself.

Left it too late to go out... It's getting dark now and the snow's not as good as it was this morning anyway.

one_step_closer 01-02-2019 06:46 PM

What are you going to do with your evening?

nonperson 01-02-2019 07:21 PM

More tv. =/

chinahorse 01-02-2019 07:32 PM


one_step_closer 01-02-2019 07:37 PM

TV is an ok plan.

Hi Lillie, what are you getting up to?

I've just noticed it's snowing again.

not_so_insig 01-02-2019 07:42 PM

Clive Swift aka Richard Bucket has died :-( :cry:

nonperson 01-02-2019 08:55 PM

I saw that in the news too, Dawn. I thought you'd be sad.

His son is quite a famous tv gardener/presenter. I didn't know the connection for quite some time but they actually look quite alike!

not_so_insig 01-02-2019 10:28 PM

Yes they do. I have a signed photo from Clive Swift.

chinahorse 02-02-2019 10:48 AM

Bertie just got post lol.

nonperson 02-02-2019 12:35 PM

Ooh what was it?

chinahorse 02-02-2019 12:45 PM

A voucher for pets at home

nonperson 02-02-2019 01:02 PM

Ah I was wondering if it was that! I always ask Geordi if it's ok for me to open his post from there. He's expecting post from the vets soon...

chinahorse 02-02-2019 01:23 PM

You're very polite asking geordie! I didn't ask bertie. Oops.

It's taking me forever to get going today.

nonperson 02-02-2019 01:27 PM

He doesn't really have a say in it tbh. =P

Eh me too. I need to clean for parents visiting tomorrow and go pick up my prescription but I've just been sat on my bum since getting up.

What do you need to be doing?

chinahorse 02-02-2019 01:46 PM

I sat on my bum for 3 hours so I get you.
I've just cleaned up the kitchen, done the litter tray and showered and hair washed. Need to go get a voucher from town for the leaving do I'm going to tonight. And buy some laundry stuff. I'm sat back on my bum now I'm drssed thpugh cuddling bertie

one_step_closer 02-02-2019 02:19 PM

The Pets At Home app is good for helping not to lose vouchers.

How are you all managing with your tasks?

I'm going to hoover after the cats have their lunch.

not_so_insig 02-02-2019 03:18 PM

I always had trouble with the pets at home app kept on crashing. In the end I uninstalled it.

one_step_closer 02-02-2019 03:20 PM

I think they might have updated it recently.

How are you today Dawn?

not_so_insig 02-02-2019 03:40 PM

Apart from being cold I am ok thanks. My finger is better too.

chinahorse 02-02-2019 04:06 PM

Glad your finger is better. Have a hot drink dawn?

I have the pets at home app and think it's good.

I'm now home and have done my jobs and got some food and got the gift voucher for the girl tonight. Now am chilling on the sofa.

What's everyone up to?

nonperson 02-02-2019 06:42 PM

Also chilling on the sofa. I have more cleaning to do for tomorrow but I've knackered myself out today so I'll do it in the morning instead. Got to go food shopping later too...

Where are you off to tonight, Lillie?

one_step_closer 02-02-2019 06:49 PM

I hope you have as good a night as possible Lillie. Chilling on the sofa should definitely resume tomorrow if you're able.

Good luck with the food shop NP. Get yourself something lovely and then come home and relax again. :)

nonperson 02-02-2019 06:53 PM

I was going to get myself something desserty/chocolatey to eat when I get back. Not sure what though, hm.

chinahorse 02-02-2019 06:54 PM

Hope the food shop goes well np and boo to cleaning.

I'm going to my friends dad's bar for drinks for someones leaving do. Should get up and ready but am too cosy with bertie on the sofa

one_step_closer 02-02-2019 06:59 PM

Maybe you'll have to make up your mind when you're in the shop NP.

That's a tough situation to prise yourself away from Lillie.
