Totally would if it wouldn't get me kicked out by the landlord!
They are very fussy!
They nearly kicked me out because I wasn't cleaning up to their standards! Even though the house was far from a mess!

Pomegranate 29-12-2021 06:48 AM

Thank **** my landlord gave zero ****s and never did an inspection in the eight years I lived there!

Right, I’m gonna try and nap for a couple of hours. Maybe you should leave phone downstairs and try the same? You’ve got a lot of time to kill before Friday :-p

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 06:50 AM

Mine does an inspection every 3 months :plain:

Okie dokey!
Good luck with your nap!
I've given up on sleep/am too scared to.go into my bedroom so I'll probably just continue being bored and watching crap TV!

Pomegranate 29-12-2021 06:55 AM

Remember what you read about excessive tiredness causing some of the symptoms you’re experiencing?

#just sayin’
#still got the bluntness :-p

Pomegranate 29-12-2021 06:55 AM

Sofa is a pretty good napping place

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 07:07 AM

Ok ok that's fair enough! :tongue2:

I could indeed nap on the sofa!

In other news, hi!

Hope everyone has a day, and there are some good things in it.

I’m meeting up with my friends who live in Ireland today.

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 10:12 AM


I hope you have a wonderful time Lio!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 11:24 AM

Hi guys.

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 11:26 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 11:38 AM

I am ok, though it took me a while to get to sleep. How are you?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 11:55 AM

I haven't slept at all

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 12:00 PM

Oh no! I can't remember ever having not slept.

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:09 PM

Its been happening to me a lot lately!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 12:11 PM

Do you lie in bed or get up?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:20 PM

I lay in bed for about 3 hours then got up

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:25 PM

Omg I fell asleep and missed loads of activity here!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 12:28 PM

Hi np, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:35 PM

You did np!
Did you sleep ok in the end?

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:40 PM

People need to come to this thread more. *points at all the people*

Hey Tamo =)

Yeah I slept ok enough, kept waking up though, probably got about 4 or 5 hours. =/

I'm about to go attempt gluing the catflap back on the wall...

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 12:42 PM

Gluing the cat flap?

tamobhuuta 29-12-2021 12:43 PM

We've got a lock on ours...

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:51 PM

4 or 5 hours isn't *too* bad I suppose!
Though waking up during the night is annoying

Have fun with that!

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:59 PM

Nah, that's an ok amount of sleep. I can function. Not that there's anything happening today to really function for.

Didn't make that clear - I don't mean gluing it shut, tamo! XD

The cat flap goes through a really thick wall, it's like a tunnel! It's kind of double flapped - one on the outside hole and one on the inside... but the inside flap bit has no drill holes, they're not meant for this kind of set up, so I just glued it on a good few years ago but it's eventually worked its way off so I need to do it again!

Not sure if my No More Nails is all blocked up or not. This could be messy... =|

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 01:03 PM

That does sound rather messy!

nonperson 29-12-2021 02:13 PM

Not messy at all when the glue has dried solid inside the tube...

So I've done some tidying and stuck draft excluder tape around the cupboard under the stairs.

What're you up to?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 02:21 PM

Time to get some new glue?!

Well done!

Nothing really!
Managed to get someone to pick up my pcr test but she can't come until later. So I'll do it later.
And I'm waiting on an amazon delivery

nonperson 29-12-2021 03:01 PM

Yep new glue is on the list for tomorrow.

I'm also waiting on an Amazon delivery. Apparently they're 1 stop away but haven't moved for about 5 minutes.

nonperson 29-12-2021 03:02 PM

They're here!

nonperson 29-12-2021 03:04 PM

I'm not at all being creepy and watching through the crack in the curtains. I thought Amazon drivers were really pushed for time - this lady was walking so slow down the path that she was looking around at my garden o.O

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 03:10 PM

Mine has just arrived too!

Maybe she was giving herself a little break?

A lady from the local good neighbours group has.come to pick up my pcr test to post.
Glad that's out of the way!

nonperson 29-12-2021 04:40 PM

Ah that's good. Hope the results come back quickly.

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 04:48 PM

Thanks! Me too!
I just got a text from my gp surgery saying if I need help with any of my symptoms then don't hesitate to contact them.
I was feeling lots better but the cough is now getting worse :'(

How are you doing np?

nonperson 29-12-2021 04:53 PM

That is nice of them. Coughing is horrible, hopefully it won't get any worse but it's so different for everyone.

I'm ok ish which might be a lie but I really don't know. I've had a sandwich and am trying to watch that Wheel of Time thing on Amazon.

Ooh, do you still have NowTV? There's a load of new Harry Potter stuff on there to celebrate the 20 year anniversary including a four part house quiz thing!

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 04:59 PM

It is. I hate coughing.
At least my temperature has gone down!

You know you can always talk to me if you need to!

No I don't have now tv anymore :'(

nonperson 29-12-2021 05:14 PM

That's a good sign about your temp going down.

Thank you. I don't know how to articulate anything most of the time.

Oh nooo, I suppose you can't get the free trial now either?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 05:37 PM

No I cannot :(
I'll probably have to wait until it's on prime or something

nonperson 29-12-2021 08:56 PM

Well that sucks D=

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 08:57 PM

It does! :(

Someone from work added me on fb 0_o

nonperson 29-12-2021 09:06 PM

Is that weird?

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 09:12 PM

Not really
But it makes me freak out in case they find something weird on there :p
Even though the majority of my posts are set to 'close friends'
So like, even my family don't see most of my fb!

nonperson 29-12-2021 09:42 PM

Shouldn't be a problem then =)

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 09:43 PM

It's always a worry that something might have slipped through the net! Lol

What are you up to?

not_so_insig 29-12-2021 10:28 PM

Hello all. I have been to the seaside today. Had a meal out.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:03 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:55 AM

Aw I love the seaside.

Morning all.

I've got my car booked in to get new tyres in about an hour. I'm not struggling to breathe at the thought of it, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not... >.<

How're you, Beckie? And everyone else?

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 11:06 AM

It'll be fine np!
New tires are important!

I'm ok thanks!
Another day of doing **** all all day! *sigh*

tamobhuuta 30-12-2021 11:55 AM

Hi np and Cacoethes.

nonperson 30-12-2021 11:59 AM

Tyres are important, especially as I have a rather rapid slow puncture at the moment. I'm in the waiting room at the moment. Might have a heart attack.

How's the cough? Are you starting your course back up on January? Maybe you could do some reading for that?

Hey Tamo, how're you today?
