I don't have much I need to do. Some food shopping. Wanted to return a dress that doesn't sit right but I suppose that will have to wait. Also have the inevitable laundry and housework to do.

Are you up to anything nice yourself?

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:54 AM

Going to attempt a cycle now. I say attempt because I think there will be lots of people around but I kinda want to see what's going on.

Other than that, nothing planned really. Maybe some gardening at some point. =)

Hello everyone

nonperson 19-05-2018 11:34 AM

I fell off my bike! *CRY* :crying:

I need sympathy...!!

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:35 AM

That's a nice idea to see this gs a bit np.

Morning beckie :)

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:37 AM

Oh no NP! You ok?

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 11:38 AM

Oh no nonperson!
Are you ok?
*sends many sympathies*

nonperson 19-05-2018 11:49 AM

Yeah I'm alright, I actually really very chipper about it!

I only made it about 5 metres and just went SPLAT. No idea what happened.

I've seriously scuffed up my elbow though... and a few other bits and pieces.

I just keep laughing at what a fool I am!

chinahorse 19-05-2018 12:22 PM

Lol Oh dear! At least you can laugh about it.

I'm trying to stay awake to see the dress but I'm so so tired.

nonperson 19-05-2018 12:23 PM

Have a quick 15 minute power nap =P

chinahorse 19-05-2018 12:27 PM

Lol ill power through. I need to hang up laundry and pee anyway.

Have you managed to patch yourself up?

nonperson 19-05-2018 12:31 PM

I cleaned it a bit and put a bandage on when I first did it... and then went straight back out cycling... So since being home I've just taken the bandage off.

I think I'm a bit clueless when it comes to proper first aid. There's probably all bits of tarmac and floor in it still. I'm gonna have to cover it up for work, I think... but no idea how I'll do that...!

one_step_closer 19-05-2018 03:48 PM

Oh dear NP, hope you're ok.

Anyone doing anything exciting?

nonperson 19-05-2018 04:00 PM

Hi Lindsay. How's things?

I'm about to go wash the car... with one arm!

one_step_closer 19-05-2018 04:10 PM

That sounds a little tricky! Happy one armed washing!

I was out buying some PJ bottoms earlier, didn't realise there's a local football game on as well as the royal wedding so some people may have been torn between what to do. I have no interest in the wedding or football so am trying to somehow amuse myself.

nonperson 19-05-2018 04:13 PM

Lots of big events on today. FA Cup final, Scottish League Cup final... and of course the royal wedding but that's all over and done with now. Just the after parties that will keep going.

I shall be back later! Hope you can find something to do. =)

one_step_closer 19-05-2018 04:18 PM

See you later :) Try and stay accident free yeah?!

nonperson 19-05-2018 06:17 PM

Haha, I did stay accident free! And the car is now sparkly white again... I even cleaned the inside a bit.

However my elbow is bleeding again and developed a rather large swollen lump. =(

chinahorse 19-05-2018 06:26 PM

Wow you did well with one arm!! Put some ice on the lump!!

I've had a bit of a nap and not done much else :/ I feel too poorly to do anything major but not poorly enough to be doing nothing. And Gargh I can't ring anyone for a chat either.

nonperson 19-05-2018 06:35 PM

It was sort of one-armed... My left arm started aching a lot so I switched a few times. Probably a bad idea but it's done now and I feel I've achieved something! =P

I think you should use it as a really good reason to do nothing. You deserve a good rest! I can attempt to keep you entertained if you like? =)

chinahorse 19-05-2018 06:45 PM

Mist be nice for it to be clean while it lasts! :-P I could never have a white car.

I feel useless for doing nothing though :/ suppose I have done the washing up and 2 loads of laundry and cleaned half the bathroom as I ran out of cleaner lol. Need to put my clean sheets back on. Just feel very Meh :/ and I can't stop eating.

nonperson 19-05-2018 06:48 PM

It looks so good in white, I couldn't resist.

You've done loads! You probably need the energy from the food to beat your bug.

chinahorse 19-05-2018 06:57 PM

What kind of car is it?

Meh maybe. And lol I've hardly done anything. Might have to get dressed again and pop to the shop. I've ran out of squash as I've useen half a bottle today.

What're you up to?

zombiehunter 19-05-2018 07:00 PM

*wanders the **** in*

nonperson 19-05-2018 07:00 PM

Newish Ford Fiesta. =)

Can't run out of squash!

I'm watching some old skool Whose Line Is It Anyway on youtube. =)

chinahorse 19-05-2018 07:10 PM

Oh nice np, not too big or small. That show rings a bell but I can't place it. You enjoying it?

Hey zombie!!

zombiehunter 19-05-2018 07:15 PM

hi china :-D

nonperson 19-05-2018 07:18 PM

Yeah it's really old and I think it was old repeats when I used to watch it originally. It's a comedy improv show hosted by Clive Anderson. He gets people to act out scenes and make up songs on the spot with a theme, etc. It's one of the few things that makes me laugh out loud!

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 08:12 PM

Hello everyone!

nonperson 19-05-2018 08:26 PM

Evening Beckie. =)

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 08:29 PM

Hi nonperson :)
How are you?

nonperson 19-05-2018 08:31 PM

I am sore and bruised (came off my bike this morning) but otherwise ok. =P

How are you?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 08:39 PM

Ah it's so good to laugh np!

Hey beckie :)

The shop only had lemon squash. Acceptable but not my fav.

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 08:40 PM

Hope you heal up soon np!!

Hi Lillie!
What's your favourite squash?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 08:49 PM

Ribena for a treat but for everyday either cherries and berries or apple and blackcurrant.

nonperson 19-05-2018 08:51 PM

Cherries and berries is always my squash of choice.

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 08:54 PM

I like apple squash
I only have summer fruits in at the moment
Although I mainly drink coke!

chinahorse 19-05-2018 09:04 PM

Tbf if I was less strict with myself I'd mainly drink Pepsi max lol.

Oooh yeah apple is good too!

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:10 PM

Well, I only drink coke. And coffee.
I only drink the squash when I take a bottle to my exercise classes :p

Eska 19-05-2018 09:11 PM

Hi everyone!

I don't like squash :/

Nonperson I hope you feel better soon.

Beckie I'm sorry I didn't reply before - life got in the way! Yes, feel free to PM me any time at all.

Lillie, how are you doing?

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:15 PM

Hi Eska =) and thanks. =P How are you?

I take with me squash every day to work. It tastes better than water when it's warm so thats why I do it, although I still do it in the winter. Otherwise I only drink plain water at home, or very occasionally tea. Can't really stand fizzy drinks at all!

Creature of habit. =P

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:17 PM

It's ok eska!
Its sorted now thanks :)

I hate water.
It makes me feel sick

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:22 PM

But it's so pure and not fizzy... it goes down smoothly and is all fresh and clean and lovely!

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:23 PM

No it's awful!

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:23 PM

And fish pee in it

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:23 PM

Ok now I'm feeling nauseous...

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:24 PM

But surely fish pee is better than all the chemical crap that's in fizzy!

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:29 PM

Not so fresh and clean!!

Nah, I need my daily dose of awful chemicals!!!
I did give up fizzy drinks when I was pregnant with Jasmine. I had legit withdrawal symptoms!

one_step_closer 19-05-2018 09:30 PM

I find plain water makes me feel quite sick too, unless it's really cold and I'm very thirsty.

Pepsi Max all the way! I have been good today though and just had cranberry and raspberry water.

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:38 PM

I'm not a fan of pepsi max.
Will drink it if there's nothing else!

That's very good lindsay!
A lot better for you!
