I was cold last night too. Particularly my feet.

tamobhuuta 07-01-2022 12:16 PM

It's 5 degrees here.

one_step_closer 07-01-2022 02:53 PM

There's thick snow lying here.

tamobhuuta 07-01-2022 04:03 PM


nonperson 07-01-2022 04:27 PM

Ooh snow is so pretty.

No snow here, also about 5 degrees though. The wind was bitterly cold when I was outside a while ago. Having a hot chocolate to warm up now.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 05:03 PM

I've finished work early!
Just having a mango and raspberry rekorderlig before I head off home!

nonperson 07-01-2022 05:34 PM

That's cool, Beckie. Does no one go to pubs after Christmas?

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 05:45 PM

Nope! Everyone is broke and doing dry January!

one_step_closer 07-01-2022 06:07 PM

I don't understand what temperatures mean it's cold when they're above 0.

Are you warmed up now NP?

That drink sounds interesting Beckie.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 06:13 PM

It's a very sweet drink!

one_step_closer 07-01-2022 06:15 PM

Can you still taste the alcohol though?

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 06:17 PM

Yeah you can. Just about!

one_step_closer 07-01-2022 06:18 PM

Well that's an eww from me then! Are you still there or at home?

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 06:21 PM

I'm home now.
Luckily I was in time for the bus so I didn't have to walk so far.

nonperson 07-01-2022 06:33 PM

All I can taste is sweetness with Kopparberg and Rekorderlig, not alcohol at all.

I'm still cold despite having a cat on my lap and the heating on. Might go make some soup in a minute, that will warm me up.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 06:39 PM

It is probably mostly sugar!

Soup will help!

shadow-light 07-01-2022 07:00 PM


How be people today?

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 07:07 PM

Hey Hazel!

How are you?

nonperson 07-01-2022 08:16 PM

Finally finished making soup. I dunno why it takes me so long.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 08:42 PM

What kind of soup was it?

nonperson 07-01-2022 09:02 PM

Potato, leek, carrot and chorizo.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 09:06 PM


I had scotch broth.

nonperson 07-01-2022 09:27 PM

Ah I used to have that one a lot.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 09:29 PM

It's tasty!

I need to buy more soup tomorrow
I only have a tin of carrot and coriander left

nonperson 07-01-2022 09:47 PM

Yuck. =P

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 09:51 PM

Yeah I've gone off it tbh!
That's why it's the only one left! Lol

nonperson 07-01-2022 10:19 PM

I did wonder if that was the case =P

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 10:26 PM

I need to get more lentil.
That's my preferred soup at the moment!

nonperson 07-01-2022 10:33 PM

Lentil and bacon was one of my favs.

Cacoethes 07-01-2022 10:38 PM

That is a good one!

My mum used to make a delicious soup.
It had pearl barley in it.
Sooo good.
She is a fantastic cook though

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 09:52 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 08-01-2022 11:12 AM

Oh pearl barley is a weird sort of thing, isn't it? I was trying to think of what that was when we were talking soup yesterday.


I can't believe it's Saturday o.o

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 11:19 AM

Yeah it is weird!

All my days are messed up still!
Combination of isolating and working random shifts. Especially as I'm working tomorrow and I haven't done a Sunday in soooo long!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 11:26 AM

Hello both.

nonperson 08-01-2022 11:26 AM

My weeks are usually pretty structured so having two weeks off plus me travelling to people and people travelling to me has really thrown me. I swear it was Thursday yesterday. =/

Yeah I'm ok I suppose. You?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 11:41 AM

I hope your shift goes well Cacoethes.
Do you have any plans for today np?

nonperson 08-01-2022 12:00 PM

Didn't see your ninja post there, tamo. How're you?

No plans today. Just a food shop later.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:03 PM

Hey tamo

That must be really confusing np!

I'm not working today tamo.
Today I have to see the crisis team, go to asda and pharmacy and piercing place.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:03 PM

I'm ok. Just powering through my morning anxiety. It's no way near as persistent as my afternoon/evening anxiety.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:10 PM

Ah OK. I hope you can get all that done!

We're taking down the Christmas tree this weekend.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:15 PM

Was it a real tree or plastic tree?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:20 PM

It's real. And big. And excessively decorated.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:45 PM

Oh wow!
Good luck with that then!

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 01:42 PM

Did you have a Christmas tree?

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 02:09 PM

Well, I had a 1ft tall rainbow tree! To put on my windowsill

not_so_insig 08-01-2022 03:30 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 04:05 PM

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 08-01-2022 04:07 PM

Hello Beckie are you working today?

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 04:16 PM

Nope. I'm working tomorrow though

Are you up to much today?

nonperson 08-01-2022 08:18 PM

Quick, someone talk to me so I can delay food shopping.
