Has anyone seen that meme that shows a low battery and it says you'd never let your phone get like this so why do you let yourself? I think many people let their phone batteries get low!

Indigo. 28-12-2019 04:39 PM

Been in that exact same situation Lillie. Hope the my fit well. They sound lovely. .

Thanks Lindsay and yes I have seen that meme! But seeing as my phone is frequently at 6% after i forget to plug it in overnight...I guess any of my batteries may run out. I'm akwask keeping busy.

not_so_insig 28-12-2019 04:54 PM

Hello all. I am busy doing nothing. Just messing about online and listening to music on my phone.

one_step_closer 28-12-2019 04:56 PM

What music are you listening to Dawn?

not_so_insig 28-12-2019 05:02 PM

Northern Soul Lindsay. I dont have much current music on my phone.

Indigo. 28-12-2019 05:11 PM

Don't know Northern Soul Dawn but I hope you're enjoying their music !

nonperson 28-12-2019 05:20 PM

Hi everyone.

not_so_insig 28-12-2019 05:21 PM

Northern Soul is a genre not a band Lucy. I am listening to various artists. Probably the most famous song of the Northern Soul genre is Tainted Love.

not_so_insig 28-12-2019 05:21 PM

Hello nonperson hope you are ok.

nonperson 28-12-2019 05:28 PM

Other than Christmas being a total wash out for my entire family, I am now feeling slightly more human again...

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 05:59 PM

Glad you're feeling better np!

I'm finally home

one_step_closer 28-12-2019 06:36 PM

Hi NP, are you home now?

Take it easy for the rest of the evening Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 06:45 PM

I will lindsay :)

How are you?

Buttons. 28-12-2019 06:55 PM

Hope airplane mode helps Indigo :)

Hi np hope you can destress a little now.

Interesting quote Lins.

Indigo. 28-12-2019 06:56 PM

Glad you're home now Beckie!!! Hope you can get some rest tonight.

Ooh Dawn I see, I love Tainted Love!!!

Sorry Xmas wasn't great NP, glad you're feeling more human!

How are you Lindsay?

Indigo. 28-12-2019 06:58 PM

Thanks Buttons, I feel asleep and left it on charge and now it's on 30%. How are you?

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 07:09 PM

Must be difficult Lucy

Indigo. 28-12-2019 07:11 PM

*hugs Beckie* at least my phone is more alive now! I'll probably be here a few more hours at least. Now waiting for food.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 07:35 PM

Thanks *hugs back*

What have you got to eat, do you know?

Indigo. 28-12-2019 07:49 PM

It was sandwiches - I had a nice turkey sandwich and a cup of tea. When I get home, I'm having more tea! The food has been good tbh, much better than last time I was here and had some

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 07:52 PM

Thats good then!

I currently have a cup of tea

chinahorse 28-12-2019 09:28 PM

I have tea too. Decent tea. Friend I stayed with over Christmas had bad tea and yucky powdered sweetener that I know she bought just for me so I had to use it.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 09:31 PM

Yay for decent tea!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 09:31 PM

That was very polite of you china.

chinahorse 28-12-2019 09:35 PM

Had to really. Just limited how much I drank.

And I'm soooooo easy tea wise. Any big brand tea bag (I buy tetley) but literally any big brand and tablet sweetener is fine. I dont however like posh teas or anything like breakfast tea. Not strong enough. And she had long life milk thatd been bought for me too. Blergh.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2019 09:48 PM

Yorkshire tea are the best tea bag.

Cacoethes 28-12-2019 09:49 PM

I agree tamo!

Indigo. 28-12-2019 10:02 PM

I have Tetley and Earl Grey and loads of herbal tea at home.

It sucks your friend didn't have the tea supplies you like Lillie! At least now you can have your own :)

Buttons. 28-12-2019 10:57 PM

I like most ordinary tea and I like my green tea. Mum and I tried some other nice herbal ones that were nice as well but can’t recall the flavours. There’s another one supposed to be good for my medical problems and it’s now bugging me because I can’t remember the name of it but don’t care enough to go to the kitchen to check. Hibiscus maybe? Does that sound right?

Cannot stand coffee full stop end of story despite trying to. Can’t stand even tea in a cup that’s had coffee in it that hasn’t been washed within an inch of it’s life and I really dislike the smell.

Indigo. 29-12-2019 01:03 AM

I love most types of herbal tea! I really like ginger, chamomile, and peppermint. I even like some fruit teas. I've never had milk in my tea because it's not really a thing with herbal tea, plus I hate milk.

I do love coffee though. It's okay not to like it, Buttons! We all have different tastes :) Hibiscus is great, a dark burgundy red and a bit sour?

Buttons. 29-12-2019 01:08 AM

Thankyou for accepting my none coffee stance!

Yes you’ve just described it definitely hibiscus!

Indigo. 29-12-2019 01:18 AM

Of course :)

Nice. I do like hibiscus, should get some to adds to my tea cupboard! XD

I finally got home from the hospital a couple hours ago. I was there for ages and barely slept & now finally back in my bed at home!!!

Night everyone X

chinahorse 29-12-2019 09:04 AM

Morning all.

nonperson 29-12-2019 09:14 AM

Morning Lillie. How're you?

Buttons. 29-12-2019 10:10 AM

Morning everyone!

How’s things LIllie, np?

I just had my breakfast can you guess what it might have been? :p

nonperson 29-12-2019 10:34 AM

Super noodles?

I really don't think I should be at work today... Nearly vommed just from being upright and walking.

chinahorse 29-12-2019 11:17 AM


one_step_closer 29-12-2019 11:22 AM

Morning everyone. How are you all?

Weetabix, Buttons?

Oh no NP! Have you caught what your family was ill with?

tamobhuuta 29-12-2019 11:30 AM

Sorry you're unwell np, maybe you shouldn't go into work, they wont want you to pass on germs.

nonperson 29-12-2019 11:39 AM

Oh yeah, probably crumpets.

Yeah I got my family's illness on Thursday and have been in bed for two days... Someone else covered my work.on Friday and Saturday but no one was around today and I thought I'd be much better by now than I actually am.

I'm lone working so no one around to pass it on to. Just need to check one more thing then I can go home.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:15 PM

Morning guys

I would guess crumpets Buttons!
That's what I had

Sounds like home will be the best place for you np!

I've only just got up

not_so_insig 29-12-2019 12:25 PM

I have woken up with stomach pains. Not fun. It's due to time of the month.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:29 PM

Captain Underpants is on.
It's funny

tamobhuuta 29-12-2019 12:30 PM

That's horrible insig, I hope they pass.

nonperson 29-12-2019 12:32 PM

I have no idea what Captain Underpants is.

But I am home now.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:35 PM

It was a comic type book when I was a kid.
Apparently the writer did them as kind of a **** you to his teachers because they said he'd never get anywhere with captain Underpants but the books were actually really popular!
I've never seen the film before though

nonperson 29-12-2019 12:37 PM

It's always nice to prove people wrong. =)

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:41 PM

It is indeed!

What have you got planned for when you get home?

nonperson 29-12-2019 12:48 PM

I'm already home and watching Harry Potter.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:51 PM

Which one are you watching?
