Cacoethes 23-10-2021 08:39 AM

Thanks np

Morning guys

nonperson 23-10-2021 11:08 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 12:07 PM

Hi both, how are you?

one_step_closer 23-10-2021 12:27 PM

Hi everyone, I hope you have a good day. How are you all?

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 12:59 PM

Hi osc :) I am ok, how are you? Any plans?

one_step_closer 23-10-2021 03:49 PM

I'm still struggling, I've spent most of the day just staring into space. I did go for my prescription as usual though and washed my hair.

How is your day going?

tamobhuuta 23-10-2021 04:01 PM

Can I send you a virtual hug? Well done for getting out, and for having a shower, I know how hard those can be.

I've just been watching YouTube comedy clips. I might try reading next.

Cacoethes 23-10-2021 07:21 PM

Hey guys

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 08:53 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 24-10-2021 09:39 AM

Morning Beckie and all. How are you?

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 09:44 AM

Hey np

I am really dreading work today!
Alas, I must go

How are you?

nonperson 24-10-2021 09:53 AM

Alas... What hours are you doing today?

I'm a bit meh...

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 10:09 AM

When it's busiest because of the sunday roasts

Sorry to hear that
Do you have much planned today or can you just chill?

nonperson 24-10-2021 10:13 AM

That sucks. Maybe being busy will make the time fly by? Remember to ask for help if you need it.

Nah nothing except chores to do today. Currently watching the gymnastics world championships.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 10:23 AM

I hope so!
I will.
There should be quite a few of us on the bar because of how busy it gets.
There are 4 main jobs: serving, making drinks for the restaurant, collecting, washing and putting out glasses and clearing the bar.
It's hard to balance them on busy days.

I hope you don't have too much to do!
Sounds good!
Gymnasts are amazing

nonperson 24-10-2021 10:29 AM

Ah that's good there will be a few of you. Do you have to do all of that or do you assign specific jobs to certain people?

I've got nothing urgent to do, not at work tomorrow so don't need to wash uniform today. Although I suppose the kitchen is getting kind of urgent. I don't have any clean cutlery or plates... =|

Gymnasts are very cool. So fearless. I was never like that, I guess that's why I wasn't a very good gymnast!

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 10:36 AM

We have to do it all
Just depends who is kind of free at whatever time

Oh no! You definitely need cutlery and plates!

Jasmine used to do gymnastics. She won a trophy for it once!
But she grew out of it and prefers other things now!

nonperson 24-10-2021 10:39 AM

I suppose it's best when you find a way to work together seamlessly.

I do kind of need those things...! Just cba to do anything about it...

Ooh well done her! It's good she gave it a go even if she didn't stick with it. Doesn't suit everyone.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 10:53 AM

It's all a bit chaotic most of the time!

I know the feeling
I force myself to wash up as soon as I'm done using them because otherwise the sink would be full!

She enjoyed it at the time but grew out of it.
She just does dance and horse riding now

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 11:13 AM

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 11:14 AM

Hi tamo
How are you?

I'm leaving for work now
Wish me luck!

nonperson 24-10-2021 11:19 AM

Morning Tamo. How're you?

Good luck Beckie!

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 11:28 AM

Good luck Cacoethes!

I am ok. I went to bed early and slept really well. How are you? Any plans?

nonperson 24-10-2021 11:59 AM

Good to hear you slept well.

I'm a bit meh, tired, should shower, no plans other than watching the gymnastics... How about you?

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 12:59 PM

Is the gymnastics on the TV?

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 01:00 PM

I'm going to Mass this evening.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 01:02 PM

I hope you have a good shift Beckie.

Having a good sleep is such a great feeling! Will you be doing much today?

I'm sorry you're feeling meh NP. Does anything help at all? Maybe if you start something you'll get into a rhythm. Of course lots of breaks are needed too if it doesn't put you off. Maybe you can have a break when you've finished the things you need to do. I know it's hard.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 01:02 PM

What time is Mass Tamo?

nonperson 24-10-2021 01:17 PM

The gym is only on iPlayer I think, Tamo.

Thanks Lindsay. I know just starting something would help. I want to make tagine for dinner tonight so maybe that will be enough incentive to get the kitchen tidied in preparation... Going to start with a shower and some lunch first.

How're you?

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 01:29 PM

Afternoon all. Tesco's website is down has been for over 24 hours. People are mostly getting their orders according to the Internet. Just can't amend or change slot as which is a tad annoying because I want to change my slot. Fortunately I have nearly everything for the week added.

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 01:29 PM

Thanks np, I might give it a go. I really enjoyed the gymnastics in the Olympics.

Osc, Mass is at 5pm in Italian. How are you?

nonperson 24-10-2021 02:49 PM

Why do they do it in Italian?

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 05:13 PM

Did you get started with things NP?

Lots of websites seem to be having issues recently. Will you be able to take the order without being able to change the delivery slot, Dawn?

Do you understand Italian Tamo?

I'm still a mess but managed to have a shower and have to clean Crookshanks' bowls and mats tonight.

nonperson 24-10-2021 05:23 PM

Virtual hugs for you, Lindsay. Well done for showering.

I also showered and lunched but have been curled up on the sofa ever since. Can't face the kitchen or cooking tonight.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 05:29 PM


Do you have something you can eat that you don't have to make? Well done for showering and eating, both important things. Are you doing things to keep your mind busy while you're on the sofa?

nonperson 24-10-2021 05:36 PM

Yeah I've got tinned soup or frozen stuff I can stick in the oven. I'll decide later.

I've been watching the gymnastics coverage, not sure if that's been keeping my mind occupied or not really!

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 06:03 PM

Yes Lindsay I can take my original slot. I have an man coming to measure my living room for new flooring at potentially the same time as the tesco man. But the floor man said a 4 hour slot so if he turns up late then it's ok. I have a lot of shopping so normally I dump it in the hall where the flooring man has to walk. My mum is going to be there so she can deal with flooring man and if not she can help put the tesco shopping order away.

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 06:20 PM

We've got a small community of Italians. I don't really understand so I take along my English version as well. Now I've been going a while I am picking things up.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 06:49 PM

Finally home!
It was a mental shift but we had a good team so it was stressful but not too horrendous
No one could give me a lift home though
So I walked home in the rain

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 07:10 PM

Glad you had a good team Beckie. Sorry it wasn't that great though.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 07:17 PM

Thanks Dawn
Need to shower now

Have you been up to much today?

nonperson 24-10-2021 08:09 PM

Goddamnit why am I not cut out for spicy foods...!!

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 08:12 PM

What did you have?
I can't deal with spice either!

nonperson 24-10-2021 08:14 PM

I don't know why I thought Nandos garlic sauce was mild! My sister gave me some sachets of sauce leftover from her takeaway and I thought it'd be a good idea to have with my chips... Had to dump half a jar of mayo on top to make the food palatable!

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 08:21 PM

I have only washed my hair and watched tv today Beckie. The next village where I live is on TV tonight the park at the bottom of the road might feature. The next village was on Location Location Location last year.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 08:21 PM

Oh no!

I've just showered

That's cool dawn

nonperson 24-10-2021 08:25 PM

Don't people say cleanliness is next to godliness?

Being on TV is overrated... my recent appearance won't be deleted from iPlayer for another 10 months... >.<

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 07:34 AM

Lol np

Morning everyone!
I am up early to clean but am consuming large amounts of caffeine first

nonperson 25-10-2021 09:22 AM

The caffeine will definitely help.

I'm having to change my laundry plans as I just realised I didn't buy any detergent, whoops.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 09:49 AM

It has!

Oh no!
I bulk buy laundry pod things off amazon. I bought 2 big packs last time (when I was last in hospital about 5(?) months ago and I still have of a pack left!
