Same, it's very restful. If I don't get too cold I'll go sit on the back doorstep for a bit and watch it.

I'm tired, had a really rubbish hypo in the night so sleep was even worse than normal!

How're you?

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 09:07 AM

Sounds like a plan!

Oh no! That doesn't sound fun.
I hope you manage to get some rest today.

I'm good thanks! Definitely needed that early night last night!
I'm enjoying a self care day today!

nonperson 14-09-2021 09:35 AM

Quiet days all around then =)

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 09:49 AM

Quiet days are needed sometimes!

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:01 AM

And the rain has kinda forced it to happen. Can't strim and mow the lawn and harvesting the potatoes will have to wait.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:05 AM

Oh what a shame :tongue2:

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:26 AM

A total shame!

Kinda wanted to do the potatoes though. I could drag the bags into the dry and empty them out under the porch maybe.

Oooh then I could do stuffed jackets for dinner because that's good rainy day comfort food.

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:28 AM

Although I think they're meant to be left for a while before eating. Hm. Potato dilemmas.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:31 AM

I know absolutely nothing about growing potatoes!
But jacket potatoes are a good rainy day food
With plenty of cheese on them!

nonperson 14-09-2021 10:34 AM

I don't know anything either, this is the first time I've grown any. And having just looked up what I think is the variety I've got, they won't make good jackets! They're like long knobbly finger shaped ones...

Could just boil them and dump a load of cheese on top. =P

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:43 AM

Oh how disappointing!

But yeah, that's a good option too!
Cheese makes everything better!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 10:51 AM

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 10:54 AM

Hi tamo

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 11:02 AM

Any plans for today? I'm going to watch TV.

nonperson 14-09-2021 11:09 AM

Morning Tamo. How're you?

I've dragged the potato bags out of the rain (just in time as it's got really heavy now!) so I declare it to be Potato Harvest Day. And will keep everyone updated whether you all want to know or not. =P

I also topped up the bird feeders and hoped no one could see me outside in my pyjamas and welly boots. It's a good look.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 11:09 AM

Just tv for me too!
And a phone call from the universal credit people at 4.
Oh and put my washing away when its done!

What are you planning to watch today?

Ninja post np!

Well done!
Yay for potato harvest day!

Haha! Love the PJs and wellies combo!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2021 11:11 AM

I remember making bird feeders at school. Good luck with your potatoes.

nonperson 14-09-2021 12:01 PM

My favourite look is shorts and wellies. =P

Oh I need to do washing too.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 12:04 PM

Shorts and wellies is good too!
I used to go out in weird clothes and wellies all the time when I lived with the fam because of the horses!

My washing should be finished soon.

nonperson 14-09-2021 12:12 PM

I mow the lawn in shorts and wellies in the summer, stops my shoes getting covered in grass clippings. Totally get it when looking after horses. Practicality over fashion!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 12:16 PM

That's a good idea!

Oh yes definitely!

one_step_closer 14-09-2021 02:24 PM

I'm too self conscious to wear weird combinations of clothes. Although I do have neighbours over a tiny fence so they would see me so it would seem like the best option to dress normally. And I am 100% normal.

Do you have loads of potatoes NP?

nonperson 14-09-2021 02:57 PM

I'm also self conscious, Lindsay. I make sure no one sees me when I'm outside in weird clothes.

Haven't done the potatoes yet!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 03:02 PM

One of the managers has just given me a load of e learning to do.
Already failed the covid safety one (by one question because I hit the wrong button!!!)

nonperson 14-09-2021 03:16 PM

Can you retake it?

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 03:49 PM

Yeah just I've just done it!
I epically failed the 'proud of our beers one'
But I took some notes and I've passed it now!
There was so much information and so many videos!!!
I *think* I've done all I need to do

nonperson 14-09-2021 05:54 PM

Well done! =)


A better haul than I was expecting but not great considering I had three bags, once of which was mostly full of chafer grubs, yuck. And definitely won't be able to make jackets with them XD

Did find a heart shaped one though =P

And it's no 45 stone pumpkin but still impressed with the size of this tomato!

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 05:57 PM

Yay for potatoes!
You could probably make several days worth of a yummy potato salad!

That is one huge ass tomato!!!

nonperson 14-09-2021 06:01 PM

Ooh yeah I'll have to do some homemade potato salad. =D

My hands are quite small but yes, yes it is! I think it's going to be dinner tonight with mozzarella and a drizzle of pesto oil and some garlic bread. Nom.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 06:03 PM


Oooh that sounds yummy!

nonperson 14-09-2021 06:14 PM

Now to find the (minimal) effort to make it.

Cacoethes 14-09-2021 06:22 PM

It will be so worth the effort!

Cacoethes 15-09-2021 08:41 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 15-09-2021 11:22 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 15-09-2021 11:38 AM

Hi tamo!
I'm ok thanks.
Just arrived at work waaay too early (need to work out bike times!) So I'm sitting outside.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-09-2021 11:52 AM

I'm *hoping* my godmother will be able to visit, but it depends on traffic.

tamobhuuta 15-09-2021 01:33 PM

I hope work is going well.

one_step_closer 15-09-2021 01:38 PM

Afternoon Beckie and Tamo.

I hope work goes well Beckie, I find it hard to be on time for anything, I'm always really early. Hope you can work out bike times unless it helps to sit outside for a bit before going into work.

Fingers crossed Tamo, I hope your godmother will be able to visit this time.

Cacoethes 15-09-2021 06:38 PM

I hope you saw your godmother tamo!

Hi lindsay!
I'm always early too!
I don't mind sitting outside for a bit

Work was good!
It was a steady flow of people so there was always something to do!
Not like Monday where there was just no one!

Cacoethes 16-09-2021 08:22 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-09-2021 10:12 AM

Hi Cacoethes :) how are you? I am so spasmy, I collapsed and then poured coffee down myself.

Cacoethes 16-09-2021 10:25 AM

Hey tamo
I'm good thanks! Although very tired which is unusual for me

Oh no! I hope you're ok

tamobhuuta 16-09-2021 10:30 AM

I've now taken lorazepam because it really helps my spasming for some reason. Do you have any plans today?

Cacoethes 16-09-2021 10:35 AM

Benzos would do that

Just work.
Already been to asda
How about you?

tamobhuuta 16-09-2021 10:51 AM

Are you enjoying work? I should probably have a shower.

Cacoethes 16-09-2021 10:58 AM

I am!
I love working there.

Shower sounds good :)

not_so_insig 16-09-2021 11:10 AM

Hello all. I have the hearing voices group this afternoon and then an appointment with my cpn. Boo!

Cacoethes 16-09-2021 11:15 AM

Hi dawn

tamobhuuta 16-09-2021 11:15 AM

What's the group like? I hope your CPN is helpful.

not_so_insig 16-09-2021 11:44 AM

I have put my tea in the slow cooker. Lamb steaks and potatoes today. If I can find the mint sauce then I will have some too with my meal. Though who knows when I will actually eat it because idk how long my cpn will be. Plus bus times.

Mission today: buy chocolate. Idk what sort but definitely chocolate.

There's a more detailed description in mh of our group. Thanks tamobhuuta.
