Cacoethes 27-04-2021 12:05 PM

Oh no! That's just going to make me panic at ALL post!

shadow-light 27-04-2021 12:12 PM

ah, sorry... if it helps you can usually tell by the return address before opening

but ye, all post and phonecalls scare me at the moment so can fully relate.

Cacoethes 27-04-2021 12:28 PM

Not your fault don't worry! It's THEIR fault!

I hate phone calls too.
Had to answer one from the doctors this morning

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 01:04 PM

I was really brave yesterday and had a phone call with a GP.

Cacoethes 27-04-2021 01:06 PM

That's good tamo :)

shadow-light 27-04-2021 01:31 PM

the absolute worst thing (ok maybe not the worst but one of the worst personally) of the last year is that everything is now phoneall based so I'm getting several "have to answer" calls a week

not_so_insig 27-04-2021 02:51 PM

Afternoon all. I am waiting for my tesco shopping order.

not_so_insig 27-04-2021 05:44 PM

Well my tesco shopping order came so I have lots of yummy things. Plus lemonade. I am like Beckie with her diet coke addiction but with lemonade instead.

shadow-light 27-04-2021 06:34 PM

i used to be similar with irn-bru, but now my addiction item is ginger beer... mainly as cheep irn-bru isnt great but cheap ginger beer is still good :P

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 06:49 PM

I LOVE ginger beer. I also like dandelion and burdock.

shadow-light 27-04-2021 06:50 PM

same! Also a mix of dried dandelion, burdock and ginger roots make an awesome tea

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 07:43 PM

I'd not thought of that, I'll have to give it a go.

It was a really sweet episode of Doctors :)

not_so_insig 27-04-2021 09:00 PM

tamobhuuta Doctors is on next Tuesday so it's only Monday it's not on

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 09:09 PM

Hi everyone

Cacoethes 28-04-2021 12:07 PM

Hi tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 12:15 PM

Spasming majorly!
Any plans?

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 01:22 PM

Hello all. My postcard to Russia arrived today. It only took about 2 months.

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 01:59 PM

That's really cool.

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 02:16 PM

Plus I had a card from France arrive today.

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 03:48 PM

Cool. How's your day going?

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 03:59 PM

It's ok thanks. Had an amazon parcel which contained paint (the sort you paint pictures with not house paint) and a personal care product.

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 04:28 PM

Hurray for parcels :)

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 10:25 AM

Morning everyone
I actually had breakfast this morning for some reason
And I've just showered!

shadow-light 29-04-2021 10:33 AM

sounds like a productive morning so far

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 10:40 AM

Good start Cacoethes .

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 10:42 AM

Thanks guys!

What have you both been up to?

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 10:49 AM

I got up at 9.15am which is very early for me. I was too hungry to lie in. Now I'm having coffee.

L bought me some M&S hot chocolate, it tastes posh.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 10:50 AM

so far this morning I have taken the bin out and turned the laptop on... to say I have been up since 7 I really should have dne more but I have no idea what to do

shadow-light 29-04-2021 10:51 AM

oh, and made some danelion, burdock and hawthorn tea. Which I am currently drinking

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 10:57 AM

Is there something you would like to do?

What's the tea like?

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 11:07 AM

I'm really impressed by all your nature teas Hazel!

shadow-light 29-04-2021 11:15 AM

hard to describe the taste to be honest... bit like a mild root beer

the fun of being taught herbalism at the young age :laugh: my Gran was very into herbal remadies when I was a kid and it's only grown in me into a love of foraging

and not really sure what I want to do... in one of those restless but unmotivatied moods. Might go for a walk later, looks like it might rain soon so will wait until after that

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 11:21 AM

The only things my mum ever made was an elderflower drink, rosehip juice and i think also dandelion and burdock.
I didn't like any of them as a child!

shadow-light 29-04-2021 11:39 AM

oh i love elderflower :P

I just had a loose leaf tea delivered and they sent a different one to what I ordered... sent them an email so will have to see what happens

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 11:50 AM

My dad buys loose leaf tea over the Internet.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 11:54 AM

its annoyingly hard to get anywhere else to be honest. I m certain shops used to sell it... like normal supermarket type shops, no tth espciailist pricey shops that I have to go into town for :laugh:

I wouldn't mind, but they;ve sent a chai... I'm not keen on chai

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 12:02 PM

I'll have it I love chai.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 02:54 PM

the tea people have replied to my email, they are sending the tea I actually ordered and an extra free small sample of a third tea and said to keep the incorrect tin!

So I will soon have ALL the tea

so that's all good, I hate contacting customer services so had to really force myself to email them...

I can see where the confusion came from, I had ordered "gingerbeer tea" (which is rooibos tea with ginger, lemon and lime) and a sample bag of gignerbread chai to try out of curiousity. And they basically sent a sample plus a tin of the chai. So I think they just saw ginger and got mixed up.

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 04:27 PM

Free tea?
I watched doctors, Valerie might be an HCA.

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 09:13 PM

I had homemade pizza for dinner!

shadow-light 29-04-2021 09:23 PM

i'm making scrambled eggs :)

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 09:40 PM

I don't like scrambled eggs, I don't know why.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 09:44 PM

Full disclosure is was meant to be an omelette
