Oooh new toy :cool:

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 02:29 PM

Yes! If it ever arrives....

nonperson 05-02-2021 03:30 PM

I'm still waiting too, although not for anything so exciting. I do have cat food and a new scratching post arriving tonight though (the scratching post is exciting for the cat and I'm excited for him to have a new one!) Yodel says it'll be delivered between 18:42 and 20:42... o.o

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 03:38 PM

It came!

That's very precise delivery times!

nonperson 05-02-2021 04:07 PM

Ooo! I bet it's so shiny and fast.

Yes, precise and late!

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 04:14 PM

It is!

Yes it is rather late!

nonperson 05-02-2021 04:40 PM

Yodel seems to have good tracking though. They've got 41 more stops before they get to me!

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 04:52 PM

Wow that is good tracking!
My issue with yodel is they usually put parcels inside a bin if you're not there. They did thay with my ou stuff.

It's raining a lot.
It was so nice and sunny all day until about half an hour ago!

nonperson 05-02-2021 06:16 PM

Yeah Yodel aren't known for being the best. 12 stops away now though! It's making me nervous.

It's been really nice weather all day here too. I got caught in torrential rain leaving work, got soaked just getting to the car!

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 06:19 PM

Hopefully they drive fast!

Oh no!

nonperson 05-02-2021 06:34 PM

9 stops now =P

I don't mind getting soaked at the end of the day. There was a really cool rainbow too.

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 06:41 PM

Keep a close eye on them!

Aww rainbow!

nonperson 05-02-2021 06:45 PM

It went all the way over, could nearly see where it touched down at both ends and my house was right in the middle. It was nice. Cheered me up after a lady shouted at me on the way home =/

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 06:52 PM

Why did a lady shout at you? :/

nonperson 05-02-2021 07:00 PM

She thought I was driving too fast. Cars and people share the same road so I had to pull out to get round them and she just flapped her arms at me to slow down. Wasn't going fast, like 30mph max, and there was plenty of room. I think she was just pissed off because she got caught in the torrential rain and my car came within a mile of her dogs.

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 07:04 PM

Ugh what a moron

nonperson 05-02-2021 07:51 PM

I know =/

Parcel arrived early! Cat likes his scratching post. =)

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 07:58 PM

Awesome! :)

I'm still waiting for carer for my 5pm call...

nonperson 05-02-2021 08:06 PM

Wow they're really late. Are they ever on time?

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 08:12 PM

Nope! They have only been on time like 2 or 3 times

nonperson 05-02-2021 08:23 PM

Keeping you on your toes then. =/

Cacoethes 05-02-2021 08:25 PM

Indeed.
I tried to call a couple of times but no one was picking up....
They'd better not be late for my night time call!

nonperson 05-02-2021 10:07 PM

Maybe things will improve with their timing as the covid situation improves. =/

nonperson 06-02-2021 10:02 AM

Morning all. <3

How's everyone?

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 10:07 AM

Morning np!

I'm ok thanks.
How are you?

nonperson 06-02-2021 10:13 AM

Alright, a bit tired. Trying to find motivation to go clean the car =/

Got any plans today?

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 10:14 AM

Fun times!

I'm going to see Jasmine today :-D

nonperson 06-02-2021 10:18 AM

Oh yay! Now that is fun. Car cleaning is not.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 10:27 AM

You're right there!

I used to love cleaning my mum and step dad's cars when I was younger. Though I don't think I'd find it much fun now

nonperson 06-02-2021 10:43 AM

I don't mind it when I get started, it's quite satisfying once it's all shiny again. But like most things nowadays it just seems harder to keep on top of it... =/

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 10:54 AM

Yeah I know what you mean.
How long does it usually take?

tamobhuuta 06-02-2021 11:55 AM

Morning all. My job today is to put books on shelves.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 12:08 PM

Morning tamo

I'm not going to see Jasmine anymore
Mum has woken up with a dodgy stomach but I'll be going tomorrow

one_step_closer 06-02-2021 12:26 PM

I love putting books on shelves! Part of my shelves are bare right now because no charity shops are open so I'm quite sad.

Sorry your Mum isn't feeling well Beckie. I'm glad you'll see Jasmine tomorrow though. What are you going to do instead today?

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 12:31 PM

I'll definitely go for a walk or two today. And I've put some washing on.
Apart from that, not much!

What are you up to today?

one_step_closer 06-02-2021 02:20 PM

Some housework. Can't do anything right now though as there is a cat on my lap.

Walking is good. Do you have nice places to walk?

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 02:23 PM

I've been for a walk.
Yes there are some nice walks around here.
My favourite is walking along the river to jordans mill to get a takeaway coffee. It's a long walk though so I didn't do that one today

not_so_insig 06-02-2021 02:57 PM

Ooh I had an postcard with Jordans Mill on it Beckie via postcrossing.

nonperson 06-02-2021 02:57 PM

The car took me 3.5 hours *cry*

not_so_insig 06-02-2021 03:00 PM

My fabric conditioner drawer keeps on getting blocked on my washing machine and I think I have solved it.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 03:06 PM

I think I remember you posting about that one Dawn!
It really is lovely up there. Their cafe is brilliant when it's open.

Oh no np!
At least it's done now, well done!

nonperson 06-02-2021 03:13 PM

It looks so clean and shiny and awesome now =D I'm very proud of myself. The inside is still a mess though.

River walks are nice. Are there boats to watch?

tamobhuuta 06-02-2021 03:16 PM

A river walk sounds lovely.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 03:17 PM

You should be proud of yourself!

No boats unfortunately but it's still a nice walk

nonperson 06-02-2021 03:22 PM

I was nearly very sad and going to take a picture of its shininess to show everyone, haha.

Being near water is quite soothing.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 03:24 PM

Haha! :p

Yes it is

nonperson 06-02-2021 03:42 PM

Speaking of water, it looks like it's going to rain soon.

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 03:45 PM

It does indeed.
I hope it does
I like the rain when I don't have to go anywhere in it!

nonperson 06-02-2021 04:11 PM

It's going to rain on my nice clean car! Not allowed. Not allowed!

Cacoethes 06-02-2021 04:13 PM

Oh no! D:
That's definitely not allowed!

It's raining here now
