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

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 06:43 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 08:00 PM

tamobhuuta 27-04-2021 08:09 PM

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 11:15 AM

Spasming majorly!
Any plans?

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 12:22 PM

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

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 12:59 PM

That's really cool.

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 01:16 PM

Plus I had a card from France arrive today.

tamobhuuta 28-04-2021 02:48 PM

Cool. How's your day going?

not_so_insig 28-04-2021 02:59 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 03:28 PM

Hurray for parcels :)

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 09:25 AM

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

shadow-light 29-04-2021 09:33 AM

sounds like a productive morning so far

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 09:40 AM

Good start Cacoethes .

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 09:42 AM

Thanks guys!

What have you both been up to?

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 09:49 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 09:50 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 09:51 AM

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

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 09:57 AM

Is there something you would like to do?

What's the tea like?

Cacoethes 29-04-2021 10:07 AM

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

shadow-light 29-04-2021 10:15 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 10:21 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 10:39 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 10:50 AM

My dad buys loose leaf tea over the Internet.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 10:54 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 11:02 AM

I'll have it I love chai.

shadow-light 29-04-2021 01:54 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 03:27 PM

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

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 08:13 PM

I had homemade pizza for dinner!

shadow-light 29-04-2021 08:23 PM

i'm making scrambled eggs :)

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 08:40 PM

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

shadow-light 29-04-2021 08:44 PM

Full disclosure is was meant to be an omelette

tamobhuuta 29-04-2021 08:48 PM

Ah well...

I like omelette but have never made one.

shadow-light 30-04-2021 08:20 AM

i used to keep chickens and my stepdad worked on a potato farm. As such I can make basically any egg or potato based foods :laugh:

[Luna] 30-04-2021 09:07 AM

Morning guys,

We're having our radiators replaced next week so I'm having to clear out my office and it's soooo tedious.

shadow-light 30-04-2021 09:49 AM

I'm meant to be clearing out all the kitchen cupcoards today, they are such a chaotic mess





I am still working through orange is the new black, and I would just like to say that season 7 and the immigration stuff is genurinely heartbreaking... like seriously I cant remember the last time a TV programme mae me cry :laugh:



I am going to need to find something lighter after this :P

tamobhuuta 30-04-2021 10:15 AM

Morning everyone.

[Luna] 30-04-2021 11:00 AM

Morning Tamo, how are you?

tamobhuuta 30-04-2021 11:25 AM

I'm doing a bit better thank you. How are you?

Cacoethes 30-04-2021 11:33 AM

Morning guys

I was woken up for meds then covid swab. Ugh.
Back in bed now where I'll likely stay for the rest of the day

[Luna] 30-04-2021 12:01 PM

I'm sorry you're feeling so low Beckie.

tamobhuuta 30-04-2021 12:36 PM

Leaving hugs x
