Cacoethes 27-08-2021 05:37 PM

Oh no!

one_step_closer 27-08-2021 06:44 PM

I hope the rest of your travelling goes smoothly Elmer.

What is everyone doing this evening?

Cacoethes 27-08-2021 06:47 PM

I'm working and really cba!
But I'm here now and it's not going to be fun because half the staff are stuck in standstill traffic thanks to an earlier accident!

one_step_closer 27-08-2021 06:49 PM

Oh no, I hope they arrive soon. Work can be cab but I hope you get into the swing of it and not mind it so much.

nonperson 27-08-2021 07:11 PM

Hope you've arrived by now, Elmer?!

Hope work improves, Beckie! I'm sure the staff will turn up eventually.

Hey Lindsay. I'm up to nothing this evening although I'm pondering doing my food shop tonight instead. What're you up to?

Elmer 27-08-2021 08:20 PM

I’ve arrived!

Hope everyone turns up Beckie

Hi Lindsay (?) how are you?

NP, be a maverick, go tonight! (Then you don’t have to go tomorrow)

nonperson 27-08-2021 08:35 PM

Yay, glad you made it! =D

I'll be breaking the rules of shopping two weeks in a row! Last weekend I went early on Saturday morning =o but I want snacks and tasties for tomorrow and also want a lie in (though will probably be awake at 6am as usual) so I will be going tonight. Just writing a list now.

[Luna] 28-08-2021 10:12 AM

Good morning lovelies <3

nonperson 28-08-2021 10:20 AM

Morning Luna. =) How're you?

[Luna] 28-08-2021 10:23 AM

I'm okay thanks. How are you? You got much planned today?

nonperson 28-08-2021 10:28 AM

I'm also ok, thanks. Woke up earlier than I would have liked though. I have three whole days off in a row now which is unheard of so I plan to do absolutely nothing =P Apart from some intermittent tidying and mow/strim the lawn... maybe. How about you?

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 10:43 AM

Morning Luna and np!

[Luna] 28-08-2021 10:43 AM

Sounds great, Hope you msnsge to get some well deserved rest.
We have a BBQ to go to later for our Nephews birthday.

[Luna] 28-08-2021 10:43 AM

Hey Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 10:56 AM

BBQ sounds good!

I'm not feeling 100%.
Headachey and still nauseous.
But I'll live!

tamobhuuta 28-08-2021 11:45 AM

Hi everyone :)

I hope you feel better soon Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 11:49 AM

Hi tamo
How are you?

Thank you :)
I've had a lemsip which will hopefully help

tamobhuuta 28-08-2021 11:52 AM

It's a long time since I had a lemsip. I am ok, I'm hoping to go for a walk later.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 11:53 AM

That would be nice.
What's the weather like where you are?
It is very grey here

[Luna] 28-08-2021 12:00 PM

Lemsips are lifesavers. Hope you start to feel better soon!

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 12:03 PM

Thanks Luna!
Lemsip is great

Its just started raining *grumbles*

tamobhuuta 28-08-2021 12:58 PM

It's quite nice here.

I need to get dressed.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 01:11 PM

Its stopped now!

I've just been to asda!
Going to shower in a bit

one_step_closer 28-08-2021 01:53 PM

Afternoon, hope your days are going well. Lemsip is yuck.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 02:13 PM

Hi lindsay!
Hope your day is going well too!
I quite like lemsip

nonperson 28-08-2021 02:15 PM

I'm not sure I've ever had lepsip o.O

Hope you enjoy your BBQ, Luna. And your walk, Tamo!

How was Asda today, Beckie?

Hope your day is going ok as well, Lindsay <3

No rain here but it feels like it might.

I'm showered and have done some washing up and fed tomatoes and topped up the bird feeders. Go me.

Watching the Paralympics now =)

That's a lot of sentences o.o

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 02:21 PM

Asda was fine!
Not too busy for a change

I am also showered
Well done for the productiveness np!

nonperson 28-08-2021 02:38 PM

Maybe everyone's off doing things for the bank holiday weekend so they're not in the supermarket for a change.

Thanks. Going to keep chipping away at the kitchen. It's been a state for longer than I want to admit.

I'm a bit pissed off now though - I think Tesco have diddled me out of the white chocolate chips in their "triple chocolate" shortbread... It's just double chocolate >=(

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 02:40 PM

Ah maybe

Good luck!
I always find it best to do things in bits
Not too overwhelming then

How very dare they!
You should complain

nonperson 28-08-2021 02:47 PM

I've been doing it in bits but there's such a backlog it's been making no difference.

I know right. Like, just when you think things can't get any worse, Tesco cheats you out of chocolate! XD

Can't be arsed with complaining officially. Just going to whine about here. =P

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 02:52 PM

I'm sure it is making a difference.
Maybe a small difference but still a difference!

Fair enough!
I'd be annoyed too!

nonperson 28-08-2021 02:58 PM

It's still tasty. =)

Might make Angel Delight later!

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 03:05 PM


I totally forgot to get angel delight today! D:
What flavours do you have?

nonperson 28-08-2021 03:10 PM


Chocolate and butterscotch to make layered ice lollies with and there will be loads left that won't fit in the moulds >.>

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 03:14 PM

I may get some tomorrow.
If I go to asda again.

You'll just have to nom the rest of it!

nonperson 28-08-2021 03:38 PM

Yes, yes I will. =)

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 03:40 PM

I hope you enjoy it!

My washing is finished
Time to put it away *groans*

nonperson 28-08-2021 05:01 PM

Erf, that is the worst job.

Look! Photo mostly for Elmer's benefit. =P

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 05:04 PM

It is

Oooh they look good!
I am jealous!

nonperson 28-08-2021 05:08 PM

Is it done?

They're a bit messy - I imagined neat little stripes but didn't account for the splodging down the sides XD

Had enough for two little ramekins which I've frozen too and another one that I'll have later today with some crumbled Twirl on top.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 05:13 PM


Sounds delicious!
I should have bought chocolate today

nonperson 28-08-2021 05:17 PM

Aw no chocolate =(

Have you got any tasty treats?

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 05:31 PM

Yep. Sad times.

I have some muller corners. The new creations ones which are very tasty!

nonperson 28-08-2021 06:02 PM

They count as treats then!

Is it work time soon?

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 06:07 PM

Yep. Got to leave in about 10 minutes!
Shame really as horrible histories is on TV

one_step_closer 28-08-2021 06:08 PM

Does angel delight freeze like a lolly?

I hope you have a good shift Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-08-2021 06:11 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

nonperson 28-08-2021 06:12 PM

Hope it's not too busy tonight for you, Beckie!

Lindsay, yes Angel Delight freezes really well! It makes excellent lollies.

tamobhuuta 28-08-2021 06:59 PM

Angel delight is vegetarian! This makes me very happy.

nonperson 28-08-2021 07:57 PM
