I love where my house is. It's a 20 minute walk to the town centre AND it's 100metres from a coop.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 12:57 PM

Morning guys
I've just woken up

I like where I live because its a 10-15 min walk to the town centre
But here there is only one very overpriced corner shop and that is it!

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 01:00 PM

Morning Caco.

I've got back in bed.

nonperson 09-11-2019 01:19 PM

Afternoon Beckie. Were you being pestered again all morning?

And you're all making me jealous with your closeness to shops.

I'm also semi back in bed! Well, laying on it anyway.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 01:23 PM

I'm under the duvet with the heater on and listening to the radio.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 01:39 PM

I too am back in bed

Yep I have been pestered lots this morning!

My weather app said potential disruption due to rain but there is no rain in sight!

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 01:40 PM

Looks like it might rain here

chinahorse 09-11-2019 01:43 PM

I have both heaters on and the electric blanket. Think if I went back to bed I'd not get out again!

Jealous of ypu being so close to a coop tamo. I have to go to town as the nearest shop is pretty much in town. I used to live 30 seconds from a corner shop and I miss that.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 01:45 PM

My brother is trying to get a job there, so he's about 30 seconds from his work!

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 01:51 PM

Theres a coop near the pool at home so I sometimes go in there. I prefer asda though!

You must be cold Lillie!

Think I might get out of bed and make coffee.
Doubt there will be any hot water in the thing though
And the lady that does the food is ssuupperr strict about what happens in her kitchen so probably won't be able to use the kettle!

chinahorse 09-11-2019 01:55 PM

Haha that would be possibly one of the shortest commutes ever!

House is freezing.

No harm in asking if you can use the kettle beckie.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 01:55 PM

I don't know what it's called but wards I've been on have had like, tanks of hot water on the wall so there was always hot water.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 02:02 PM

Hope you manage to warm up Lillie!

I managed to sneak into the kitchen while she was off doing something else :p

We don't have one of those tanks. We have like an urn type thing that has to be filled up.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 02:16 PM

That's a pain. What drink are you having?

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:22 PM

Beckie, you rebel!

I've just had a chicken cupasoup to warm up.

Looks like the rain has arrived here.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 02:24 PM

I had a cappuccino. Got some sachets from the overpriced corner shop! Might have to get some more today when I can be bothered to get dressed

I am a total rebel :p

Mmm chicken cupasoup!

Still dry here!

chinahorse 09-11-2019 02:25 PM

Mmmmmmmm both tasty choices!

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:26 PM

Ick, cappaccino.

Chicken soup cures all ills, especially with noodles.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2019 02:28 PM

I have veg cuppa soup

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:36 PM

I need to get some different flavours in tonight's shop and start stocking up for the winter.

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 02:45 PM

I have snow! It snowed during the night. My parents have it too. I dont think that the buses are running through my village as I havent heard much traffic.

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:47 PM

How deep is it??

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 02:48 PM

Cuppa soups all round then!
I do prefer chicken super noodles for an instant snack though
I love noodles in general

Ooo snow

one_step_closer 09-11-2019 02:51 PM


nonperson 09-11-2019 02:51 PM

Now I want super noodles....... Got some in the cupboard as well!

one_step_closer 09-11-2019 02:54 PM

Do you have a proper stocked cupboard NP? The only things I almost always have in my cupboard are beans, stock cubes, and pasta.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 02:55 PM

I always have stock cubes and pasta
And other random tins of things I probably won't use ever. Like chick peas. Actually I should make houmous again when I get home.

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 02:57 PM

It's somewhat deep. I have dug out my hat, scarf and gloves.

one_step_closer 09-11-2019 02:58 PM

I bought chick peas once to make hummus but then realised you need a shzuzer (that's the way I say it) to smush them up.

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:58 PM

Nah my cupboards are usually pitifully empty... I don't tend to stockpile.

I always have stock cubes as well, probably because I don't use them that often though.

nonperson 09-11-2019 02:59 PM

Hehe, shzuzer! I don't have one of them either.

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 03:00 PM

I keep a well stocked freezer and have lots of tinned beans. One winter I was stuck inside for a week and had nothing but chicken for a week.

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 03:02 PM

I have a blender, slow cooker, food processor and a electric mixer. Plus a pestle and mortar and an tassimo machine.

one_step_closer 09-11-2019 03:03 PM

Are you a secret chef or something Dawn?!

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:04 PM

Or a collector of gadgets. =P

one_step_closer 09-11-2019 03:09 PM

Now I have the Inspector Gadget song in my head.

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:11 PM

Argh noo, now I have too!

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 03:11 PM

I just like to cook and bake when the voices allow. I am far safer using the tassimo machine than the kettle. I just need someone to enjoy my cooking as I like to bake for others. I have more herbs and spices than my spice rack will hold.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 03:15 PM

I only tend to get ingredients to cook something specific.
I love to make beetroot houmous, I have a hand blender that does the trick!

not_so_insig 09-11-2019 03:17 PM

I like beetroot hummus too Beckie! I cheat and use pickled beetroot and jar of mint sauce.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 03:19 PM

I use fresh beetroot.
Now I want some!

And I also have the inspector gadget theme tune in my head now
Thanks guys -.-

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:21 PM

It was Lindsay's fault. =(

I still want super noodles but I've already had lunch... Are they suitable for an afternoon snack? =P

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 03:23 PM

Dammit lindsay!! :p

I'd say so np!

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:33 PM

Ok, that's settled then. Noodles for snack time and something to look forward to.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 03:40 PM

Yay noodles!

I am watching Chernobyl still.
Only got one episode left though

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:41 PM

I've heard that's quite good.

I've started watching Heroes again. Forgot how good it is. =)

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 03:47 PM

It is good

I love heroes!

nonperson 09-11-2019 03:53 PM

Me too. Not sure I made it all the way to the end though.

Cacoethes 09-11-2019 04:11 PM

I watched it years ago so can't remember lots of it
I wonder if I can get it on Now TV.
I'll have a look once I finish Chernobyl

nonperson 09-11-2019 04:14 PM

It's not on Now TV (I checked recently!) but it is on Amazon video, if you have that.
