*hugs* I hope this Christmas will be a good one for you.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 06:58 PM

Thank you <3
I just hope I'm not working!

one_step_closer 02-11-2021 06:59 PM

What's everyone doing this evening?

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 07:07 PM

Just put my washing away
Now watching QI

How about you?

one_step_closer 02-11-2021 07:11 PM

I'm mostly staring into space. Will put some catch up TV on in a bit and watch an episode of Grey's Anatomy after that. I have a cat on my lap right now and I think it's too early for TV now anyway.

nonperson 02-11-2021 07:17 PM

I'm back. Went for a short walk with my friend and then decided to go for a drive so I didn't have to come home straight away. Normal tv routine for me tonight...

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 07:28 PM

You catching up with anything in particular lindsay?
It feels a lot later than it is!

Welcome back np
Did you enjoy the walk?

nonperson 02-11-2021 07:30 PM

It gets dark too early now. =(

Yeah it was nice to get out and see another person, it was a bit too short though.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 07:40 PM

It does

Will you go for another walk soon?

nonperson 02-11-2021 07:43 PM

Probably Thursday but she'll let me know about tomorrow after work.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 07:46 PM

It's good to get out with people :)

nonperson 02-11-2021 07:48 PM

Sometimes. Or at least in small doses when it's my choice.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 07:54 PM

Yes absolutely!

nonperson 02-11-2021 07:57 PM

I dunno how you deal with so many people at work.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 08:07 PM

Neither do I tbh! Lol
I've always been incredibly socially awkward so a job in a pub shouldn't really be for me!
But I make it work

nonperson 02-11-2021 08:11 PM

I think it's easier to be less socially awkward if there's a job to do, rather than being thrown into a room of strangers and told to communicate with them. It defines the specific level of interaction required when it's job based!

Like I can talk to people about my work and show them around and talk to members of the public because they mostly want to know or say the same things so that's fine.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 08:15 PM

Yes I think that is right!

And in a pub, the interactions with people are usually pretty short. You take an order, you get the drinks, you give them the drinks!
Apart from yesterday when a regular required a therapy session....

nonperson 02-11-2021 08:18 PM

Oh dear. Did you sort them out? Or send them over the road? lol

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 08:23 PM

I listened and made sympathetic noises :p

nonperson 02-11-2021 08:27 PM

I guess that's all they want sometimes, just to have someone listen.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 08:33 PM

Yeah. Bless him!
Hes just very sick of his job and family! Lol

nonperson 02-11-2021 09:05 PM

Poor guy. That's an all too common problem!

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 09:09 PM

It is!
Probably why he spends so much time at the pub!
And drinks like 8 pints of fosters in a row

nonperson 02-11-2021 09:24 PM

Eek. I'm sure he'll tell you more some time.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 09:31 PM

Most likely
He likes to talk about football as well
I know nothing about football!

shadow-light 02-11-2021 09:35 PM

football is overrated, I tried watcing it when I was a joiner so that I could join in the conversations... it is soooo boring

I mean I played it as a teenager, its ok to play... but it is so dull to watch

nonperson 02-11-2021 09:37 PM

I think that depends on the game really.

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 09:41 PM

I like physically going to matches
That's fun
On tv, not so much

shadow-light 02-11-2021 09:43 PM


i have been to 2 matches, I mainly got overwhelmed :laugh: to be fair I do have a very rubbish attention span for most things though so maybe its just me

Cacoethes 02-11-2021 09:50 PM

Yeah they can be overwhelming!
My attention span isn't great either tbh
Can't focus on anything these days!

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 08:54 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 03-11-2021 10:10 AM


Cacoethes 03-11-2021 10:16 AM


How are you?

nonperson 03-11-2021 10:27 AM

Mrs Doubtfire, every time.

Tired, surprisingly sore after yoga yesterday...

How're you?

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 10:31 AM

Hell yeah!

Do you have much to do today?

I'm ok thanks!

nonperson 03-11-2021 10:50 AM

Nah nothing to do except the usual list of chores that I'm ignoring...

Anything planned today?

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 11:07 AM

Fun times!

I need to go to asda and pharmacy. And sort out (throw away) 2 boxes of random crap I found in the depths of my airing cupboard!

tamobhuuta 03-11-2021 11:27 AM

Morning all. No joint tea time this morning because N has her counselling but I can still have coffee, maybe even teabag tea.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 11:29 AM

Morning tamo

Sounds good!

tamobhuuta 03-11-2021 11:32 AM

How are your chores going?

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 11:42 AM

I'm going to go to asda and pharmacy soon.
Waiting for my friend to reply with his address so I can send his (very late) birthday card. It's a cool card. It's a pop up hogwarts castle one!

nonperson 03-11-2021 12:31 PM

Ooh I got that card (or at least similar one) for my mum this year!

I've done some washing up and cleaned up the cat flap ready for reattaching to the wall.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 12:59 PM


Well done!

I've been to asda and pharmacy. Just about to sort the boxes now!

not_so_insig 03-11-2021 01:09 PM

Afternoon all. Beef and ale casserole in my slow cooker today.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 01:12 PM

Found the most random things in those boxes!
Including a piece of paper from the hospital where I was born with all my birth details on it!
And my signed ticket from Monty Roberts (the horse whisperer)

not_so_insig 03-11-2021 01:28 PM

That's random Beckie

nonperson 03-11-2021 01:54 PM

Were your birth details correct? Now that would be something interesting to discover if they weren't!

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 01:58 PM

Yep all correct (as far as i know.....)

nonperson 03-11-2021 02:01 PM

Phew =P

Also totally going to start calling you Bekkii from now on.

Cacoethes 03-11-2021 02:07 PM

Oh god don't XD
So cringe
