Deborrah 01-02-2021 05:08 PM

Thank you <3 So what's everyone up to today?

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 05:21 PM

Not a lot really.
Fairlt busy day tomorrow though.
Probably got boiler guy coming, have electrician coming and depot appointment and carers 4 times a day. So I don't really know how I'm going to fit everyone in!

one_step_closer 01-02-2021 05:23 PM

My brother sent me Schitts Creek so I'll watch that later after I've watched Paramedics On Scene.

one_step_closer 01-02-2021 05:23 PM

That is a lot of things going on Beckie. I hope it all goes smoothly.

Deborrah 01-02-2021 05:25 PM

That sounds like a busy day Cacoethes
I have yet to watch that one_step_closer.

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 05:27 PM

I've heard that's good lindsay.


Yep. I'm kind of hoping that boiler guy doesn't come tomorrow because it's just too awkward!
I couldn't really have the electrician and boiler guy in the house at the same time with the current situation. Idk

Deborrah 01-02-2021 05:45 PM

I'll have to get my heaters replaced and my oven replaced, and my chimney swept. I feel your pain! Trying to maneuver so that they all come on a different day.

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 06:10 PM

Oh what a pain!

nonperson 01-02-2021 06:32 PM

Pizza fixes everything. =)

Deborrah 01-02-2021 06:32 PM

Very tempted to get a pizza actually, ha :D

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 06:35 PM

It does indeed np!

I've just had a shower. Novelty still hasn't worn off after dealing with hospital showers for 3 months!

nonperson 01-02-2021 06:39 PM

And especially because it's one of the few things that isn't needing fixing in your house? =P

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 06:47 PM

Haha! Yes that too
But don't jinx it!!! :p

nonperson 01-02-2021 06:57 PM


Cacoethes 01-02-2021 07:14 PM

We'll wait and see whether my shower mysteriously breaks down :p

How are you np?

Cacoethes 01-02-2021 07:28 PM

Argh the 'perf with surf' advert drives me mad!

nonperson 01-02-2021 09:32 PM

I hate that advert too. It makes me have murderous thoughts towards the person who came up with the idea.

Just had a two hour nap on the sofa.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 09:00 AM

Me too!

I hope you managed to get a good nights sleep after napping!

Morning guys

nonperson 02-02-2021 09:49 AM

I napped for another two hours and then went to bed and slept all night. Still bloody tired though.

I'm sat in the car park waiting for my blood test appointment. Turned up really early for some reason.

How're you?

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 09:54 AM

Sleeping well but still being tired is the worst

Hope your blood test goes ok!

I'm ok thanks. Just waiting for the electrician.

nonperson 02-02-2021 09:56 AM

Oh I forgot you've got everyone turning up today. Really hope it goes smoothly.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 10:03 AM

Boiler guy still hasn't called so he probably won't be turning up today thank goodness!
But the electrician and carer turned up at exactly the same time! They are here now

nonperson 02-02-2021 10:28 AM

Eek so many people at once. How long do the carers stay for? Will the electrician be done quickly?

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 10:38 AM

The carers only do my meds then leave luckily.
I think the electrician is going to be here for a while.
He's set up a massive table full of stuff 0_0

nonperson 02-02-2021 10:51 AM

Eek. Sounds like serious work going on.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 11:05 AM

He's replacing the main thingy. I can't remember what it's called! Wouldn't know what it is either way tbh!.

tamobhuuta 02-02-2021 12:53 PM

You two sound busy.

I am still in my pyjamas.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 01:00 PM

Fairly. Probably not as busy as np!
Got to leave for depot in 20 minutes.

I wish I was still in my pyjamas!
Are you up to much tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-02-2021 01:22 PM

Just usual stuff.

nonperson 02-02-2021 01:28 PM

I'm kinda contracted to be busy. Also wish I was still in pyjamas!

one_step_closer 02-02-2021 01:42 PM

I hope everyones days are manageable and successful.

tamobhuuta 02-02-2021 02:24 PM

I just put my meds in their dosette box!

How are you osc?

not_so_insig 02-02-2021 02:34 PM

I am waiting for my tesco shopping order to come.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 02:45 PM

I'm back!

Hey guys

one_step_closer 02-02-2021 03:00 PM

Do you have a weekly box Tamo? Mine is daily so easy enough to do.

What time is your order coming Dawn?

Welcome back Beckie, what are you going to do now?

I'm feeling really hopeless. Had another Easter egg though.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 03:03 PM

I need to book a tutorial for my OU stuff but apart from that I'm just watching TV.

Sorry you're feeling hopeless lindsay :(
Ooo what kind of easter egg?

one_step_closer 02-02-2021 03:05 PM

It was a Malteasers one.

Is it snowing where you are? I'm just sitting watching the snow out the window.

nonperson 02-02-2021 03:07 PM

Snow is so pretty.

It's about 13 degrees down here at the moment! Tropical compared what's happening up north.

one_step_closer 02-02-2021 03:08 PM

It seems like we take it in turns with the snow.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 03:10 PM


Ooo snow!
Nope none here, like np said it's 13!
Rather warm compared to the last couple of days

not_so_insig 02-02-2021 03:41 PM

My tesco order came but I didnt get any easter eggs despite there being substitutions allowed. I is disappoint :-(

tamobhuuta 02-02-2021 03:45 PM

Mmm Easter egg

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 03:57 PM

That's a shame Dawn

I may get an easter egg when I go to asda tomorrow

nonperson 02-02-2021 05:10 PM

Captain Tom has died from covid. =(

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 05:14 PM

I heard.
So sad :(

not_so_insig 02-02-2021 05:24 PM

It is sad. May he rip.

nonperson 02-02-2021 05:24 PM

Very sad. And worse for the fact that it was covid... His little messages of hope really struck me for some reason.

Cacoethes 02-02-2021 05:27 PM

He did well though, 100 years old!

nonperson 02-02-2021 05:33 PM

Really well. The news just showed a clip of him on Blankety Blank back in 1983. Quite amusing. =)

not_so_insig 02-02-2021 05:43 PM

I am using my slow cooker again. This time lasagne in it. I wonder if it's ready yet because I was a bit late putting it in.
