Hello everyone, how are your days going?

That sounds like an interesting soup NP. I'm having roasted veg and bacon soup tonight (not home made).

nonperson 15-03-2022 07:28 PM

"Interesting" is definitely the word for it, Lindsay XD Not the best soup I've ever made but not the worst!

Roasted veg and bacon soup sounds really nice.

sorry to wade in but that could very easily be COVID. Please at least do an LFT, especially if you're going to be near vulnerable people.

I'm going to wade back out because soup is my least favourite thing and you lot are talking about soup!

tamobhuuta 16-03-2022 12:27 PM

Good morning.

not_so_insig 16-03-2022 02:30 PM

Afternoon all. I have taken an lateral flow test and like I suspected it was negative so it's the common cold. My dad has a cold and I was in the car a lot during the weekend with him so I suspect I caught it from him. Thanks Jenna for nagging me though. My head is clear today and was yesterday plus lemsip helps so I didnt think it was covid as I dont have a loss of sense of taste or smell.

It's a chilled soup in Tesco, not their own brand but can't remember what brand it is. I keep going back for it, it's really nice.

one_step_closer 16-03-2022 02:55 PM

How is everyones day going?

not_so_insig 16-03-2022 03:14 PM

I feel ok at the moment Lindsay. Been battling with amazon as they didn't deliver my parcel on Monday. I shall hopefully have a refund. Yet I ordered something at the same time as my missing items and that turned up. All the items were prime eligible so it's their incompetence.

one_step_closer 16-03-2022 03:26 PM

Amazon seem to be in a bit of a mess right now. I hope you do get your refund. So you have some missing items or were they just late?

not_so_insig 16-03-2022 03:34 PM

I have 3 missing items Lindsay. I ordered 4 items at the same time on Sunday but only 1 arrived on Monday. Annoyingly it was the cheapest item that turned up. One item I was desperate for on Monday was one of the ones that didn't turn up so I had to order it again. It was also the most expensive.

one_step_closer 16-03-2022 03:38 PM

Wow, that's a big mess! I tried to tell a driver I had cancelled the thing they just gave me but he was running back to his van and didn't hear me. In the end it wasn't the cancelled item and I know they're trying to be safe because of covid but they don't even acknowledge you. They could just stand back from the door. Half of the time they don't even look back so I might not have been in and they wouldn't have known so the package would remain at my front door for anyone to take.

not_so_insig 16-03-2022 03:49 PM

Yes amazon delivered a parcel to me when I wasn't in about an month ago. They left it outside the communal door not even on my doorstep all day. Luckily most people are honest around here and it was there when I came home about 6 hours later.

one_step_closer 16-03-2022 05:52 PM

Do you ever get deliveries from Hermes? Seems they've changed their name now, I thought it was a scam at first, I was getting all these messages telling me something was out for delivery but it did turn up and it was just Hermes changed to Evri.

not_so_insig 16-03-2022 07:16 PM

Yes I do sometimes Lindsay. I used to get them a lot from a clothing website I use but they changed to yodel. Now I get them occasionally when an ebay seller uses them instead of royal mail as it says on their listing. I hate it when that happens.

Also a certain member of this goddamn forum did troll me via messenger when they saw my, ahem, contributions here and said that apparently daal is considered to be soup. Said member knows that I like daal.

nonperson 16-03-2022 08:40 PM

Well, would it help you to know that I don't have a blender so my soups always have to be chewed. I agree that thin soup isn't nice. How is daal soup though? O.o

not_so_insig 17-03-2022 01:20 PM

Afternoon all.

one_step_closer 17-03-2022 03:58 PM

Hey Dawn, how are you today?

not_so_insig 17-03-2022 04:46 PM

I feel ok cold wise. I am knackered because I went around the park twice and used a very heavy hoover on the communal corridor. It was very messy as there is workmen working on an flat in my block and they made one hell of a mess. It looks much better now though it took half an hour to make it respectable. I still have to put my doormat back and clean the door handle and knocker.

one_step_closer 17-03-2022 06:10 PM

Sounds like a very tiring day. Will you be taking it easy this evening?

not_so_insig 17-03-2022 06:19 PM

No I will be doing my cleaning. I suspect that I will be taking a lot of rest stops.

one_step_closer 17-03-2022 06:20 PM

Hopefully you'll have a nice restful sleep tonight after all your hard work.

tamobhuuta 18-03-2022 10:12 AM

Morning x

one_step_closer 18-03-2022 03:32 PM

Afternoon. How are you Tamo and whoever else ventures here?

tamobhuuta 18-03-2022 04:03 PM

I'm ok, waiting for a call with my advocate. How are you?

one_step_closer 18-03-2022 05:28 PM

Have you had your call yet?

I'm in a bit of a weird head space. Got everything on my to do list done anyway.

tamobhuuta 19-03-2022 11:48 AM

Well done :)

I did have my call, we decided to pass my complaint to PALS.

Good morning everybody!

one_step_closer 19-03-2022 01:35 PM

Afternoon Tamo. Are you ok with passing the complaint to PALS?

tamobhuuta 19-03-2022 02:44 PM

I think so.

How are you?

one_step_closer 19-03-2022 03:37 PM

I hope you get what you need from it.

I'm a bit anxious and low.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 19-03-2022 04:03 PM

That's not good. Do you have anything to distract? Just to get you through the day.

I'm good, my big sister is here.

one_step_closer 19-03-2022 04:32 PM

I'll be fine. I'm used to it.

Is your big sister visiting or does she live with you?

tamobhuuta 20-03-2022 10:37 AM

She lives with her husband but she visits most weekends

And a good morning to you all!

one_step_closer 20-03-2022 03:24 PM

I'm glad you get to see your big sister Tamo.

Afternoon everyone, how are you all (if/when you turn up)

one_step_closer 20-03-2022 03:29 PM

I'm the only member online right now. Maybe people have a life especially when it's sunny.

not_so_insig 20-03-2022 04:04 PM

I have noticed lately that I am the only member online at times. Sad really. I slept until the afternoon and have washed my hair. I havent done much otherwise.

one_step_closer 20-03-2022 05:51 PM

You don't need to be doing loads every day. I hope you're enjoying a relaxed day. It is sad the way RYL is going, I wish it would pick up.

tamobhuuta 21-03-2022 12:09 PM

Good morning everybody.

one_step_closer 21-03-2022 01:25 PM

Afternoon Tamo. How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-03-2022 02:05 PM

I'm ok. I got a phone call cancelling an appointment I didn't know I had!

one_step_closer 21-03-2022 03:24 PM

Oh well that's kind of lucky then! Did you get it rearranged?

tamobhuuta 21-03-2022 04:22 PM

No not yet.

How's your day going?

one_step_closer 21-03-2022 06:06 PM

Is it going to be rearranged from their end?

I've not been managing a lot today. What have you been up to?

not_so_insig 21-03-2022 08:43 PM

Hello all.

tamobhuuta 21-03-2022 09:09 PM

Osc, i have no idea!

Hi insig.

tamobhuuta 22-03-2022 11:00 AM

Good morning x

one_step_closer 22-03-2022 05:33 PM

Evening. I've had a busy day so I'm just managing to get online now.

How have your days been?

not_so_insig 22-03-2022 07:43 PM

I had a busy day too. Out at 1.15 pm didnt get back until 5.40 pm. Poor cats were wondering where I was.

not_so_insig 23-03-2022 09:04 AM
