Hi all

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 02:14 PM

Hello tamobhuuta how are you?

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 02:16 PM


My fire stick has decided to disconnect from the internet and won't connect again!
Which means no Netflix! :s

tamobhuuta 04-06-2019 02:16 PM

I am Ok thanks, bit worried about seeing my CPN this afternoon though. How are you?

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 02:28 PM

Good luck with your appointment tamobhuuta.

Cant you watch Netflix on your laptop Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 02:51 PM

Hope it goes ok tamo

My laptop is on its way out so it probably wouldn't deal with Netflix very well
I was just getting into a new show as well!!

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 03:06 PM

First world problems Beckie!

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 03:07 PM

Very much so!!

It's just started pouring down!
Glad I don't have anywhere else to go today

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 03:21 PM

It's raining here too.

I have been sorting out my books. I have found 6 duplicates so I am selling some books once I have taken photos of them.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 03:32 PM

Well done for doing that
I desperately need to sort out my bookshelf
It's become a bit of a dumping ground!

one_step_closer 04-06-2019 04:18 PM

Oh nooooo Beckie! Will you be able to get a new fire stick or whatever?

Hope your appointment has gone/goes well Tamo.

Where do you keep all your books Dawn?

one_step_closer 04-06-2019 04:22 PM

OMG I missed out NP! How are you? Apologies.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 04:26 PM

I'm watching Netflix on my laptop
Some issues but it seems to be coping now *touch wood*
I don't know what to do about my fire stick!!

How are you lindsay?

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 04:32 PM

I have recently acquired 2 bookcases so some of the books are in there otherwise the rest are in boxes in the cupboard in the bedroom. I have numbered some of the boxes so that I know which books are in which box (that's how come I found 6 duplicates) as I have made a list of where the books are. I am going to try and sell the duplicates on Facebook first before Ebay.

Oh and I found a book I was looking for last year but never managed to find then.

one_step_closer 04-06-2019 04:33 PM

*sellotapes technology together* That should fix it!

I'm trying to be ok. I got pizza for dinner though. :-) How is your day going apart from technology despair?

one_step_closer 04-06-2019 04:34 PM

You can never have too many books. :-) Although I actually feel like I have an overwhelming amount when it comes to choosing which one to read next.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 04:41 PM

Yay pizza!

My day is going fine thanks
CC dropped off the recovery college prospectus which looks interesting

How rude! =P I only popped in briefly while on lunch and then ran away again.

I am... confused. I've just got home to find that the dealer I bought my car from (assuming it is them...) has sent me a cheque for 50 and I have no idea why!

not_so_insig 04-06-2019 05:06 PM

Lindsay I write a review on my blog when I have finished reading my books.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 05:15 PM

Thats strange np!!

nonperson 04-06-2019 05:18 PM

It's totally strange! They're meant to be fixing damage on my wheel but haven't been in touch for a month to arrange it so I'm wondering if they're paying me to get it done myself somewhere? That's the only reason I can think of. Still weird though even if it is that. o.O

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 05:31 PM

That could be a reason
It is still odd though!

nonperson 04-06-2019 05:34 PM

I'm hoping it might mean they'll ring me at some point to explain... because it will save me calling them which I've been putting off for ages.

nonperson 04-06-2019 05:40 PM

Someone ate all my chocolate chip cookies yesterday... >.<

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 05:41 PM

I hate calling people too

Oh no!

nonperson 04-06-2019 05:42 PM

When I say someone... I mean me.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 05:48 PM

Oh dear

nonperson 04-06-2019 05:50 PM

I could try to blame the cat but that would be unfair. =P

Toying with the idea of going out for emergency chocolate but lacking in effort!

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:00 PM

Poor cat :p

Going out is effort
But chocolate may be worth it!

I'm full of angel delight

nonperson 04-06-2019 06:06 PM

Ooooo haven't had that in years!

Which flavour?

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:09 PM

I usually do a layer of chocolate and a layer of butterscotch but they had no chocolate flavour :(

nonperson 04-06-2019 06:13 PM

Chocolate or butterscotch are the best flavours. A layer of each sounds amazing!

My mum used to make it into lollies.

one_step_closer 04-06-2019 06:25 PM

Isn't recovery college stuff what Katie is doing?

I first tried Angel Delight after Beckie inspiration but I wasn't impressed. I might not have whisked it for long enough though.

Dawn, PM me your blog address if that's ok. I like books and blogs muchly.

NP, how dare you eat all of your cookies! I have chocolate chip muffins which will likely all be eaten by me today though.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:28 PM

How did she make it into lollies?
Just freeze it?

I'm not sure.
There are lots of classes
Might give it a try!

Ooo muffins!

nonperson 04-06-2019 06:33 PM

Yup I think she just made it normally, put it in lolly moulds and froze it!

You can buy ready made pots of Angel Delight too, Lindsay.

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:42 PM

I will have to try that!

nonperson 04-06-2019 06:51 PM

I highly recommend. =P

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:53 PM

Does sound good!

I'm so tired and it's not even 7pm!

nonperson 04-06-2019 06:54 PM

Me too. Could just roll sideways and fall asleep right now.

I don't know what to have for dinner either...

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 06:58 PM


Have you got much in?
I had tortellini

nonperson 04-06-2019 07:03 PM

I have tortellini too! Had forgotten that. No sauce though...

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 07:10 PM

What kind of tortellini do you have?
I had four cheese
No sauce either

nonperson 04-06-2019 07:25 PM

I've got garlic and herb. No sauce is nice sometimes, with lots of cheese. =P

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 07:30 PM

Definitely lots of cheese!

Stellata 04-06-2019 07:37 PM

Hi everyone.

I have good news re my voluntary work!

Cacoethes 04-06-2019 07:39 PM

Hi Katie!

That's good!

Stellata 04-06-2019 07:40 PM

Thanks Beckie!

nonperson 04-06-2019 07:47 PM

Ooh well done. I was wondering how your interview went. =)

Stellata 04-06-2019 07:49 PM

Thanks np. I was told I wouldn't hear for 2-3 weeks but heard back today!

nonperson 04-06-2019 07:51 PM

They must have liked you a lot then. =P When do you start?
