I can recycle the cardboard tubes here Beckie. It annoys me how different councils can recycle different things. For example my parents live in a different county to me and besides obvious things like glass and tins I have to ask them if they recycle anything else. Also they have a wheelie bin where everything recyclable goes in whereas in my county you have 2 different recycling container systems depending on where you live. For example I have a box for tins and plastics, a separate box for glass and a paper bag. Whereas my brother who lives in the same county as me has a trolley which has a stackable boxes for plastics/tins, glass and paper.

I have a wheelie bin. I can put everything in there except glass. My old house in Herts had a box for glass but we don't have that here. It's ok though because i don't use anything glass really!

one_step_closer 08-07-2022 05:05 PM

I'm surprised you can't recycle the toilet roll tubes Beckie. I have a bin for paper/card, one for plastic/glass/tins, one for food/garden waste, and one for general waste.

Do you only have one normal bin and one for plastic? Where's the glass meant to go?

Cacoethes 08-07-2022 05:16 PM

I could put the cardboard tubes in the recycling wheelie bin. For some reason I'd just never thought of it! ALL recycling can go in the wheelie bin except glass.
You have to take glass to a bottle bank. Which there are lots of tbf
There's a few at asda and a couple near the drs. And other ones a bit further away.

one_step_closer 08-07-2022 05:19 PM

So you have one normal bin and one recycling bin? I wouldn't want to get everything mixed into one bin.

(This is too much of an adult discussion for us young people!)

Cacoethes 08-07-2022 05:26 PM

Yep! And one for garden waste like grass cuttings and stuff.
Having one bin makes it easier! Can just chuck everything in there and you don't have millions of boxes to drag to the kerb!

It really is!!!

Zurg 08-07-2022 07:03 PM

Remember kids; recycling is good for the planet, mm'kay???

Living in a flat like i do, means we have common bins outside. I Think we have 3. One for paper/cardboard, one for plastic/glass/metal and one for everything else. You sort the trash in your own flat in whatever Way suits you best, then bring it outside and put in its designated bin. And no, this does not work at all!!! Because people in general do not care about anything. Not even saving the planet!!! :-(

Cacoethes 08-07-2022 07:11 PM

It is indeed!

Some people really don't care.
I used to have someone put bagged dog poo in my recycling bin.MY RECYCLING BIN!!! It would have been acceptable (but i wouldn't be happy about it) to put it in the general waste bin! There are literally 2 dog poo bins about a 3 minute walk away. People are.lazy! But i guess it's good that they are at least trying and not just leaving it on the pavement. Could have put it in their own bin though :plain:
But that stopped when my neighbour moved in. She probably caught them doing it and had a go at them XD

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 08:02 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 09-07-2022 08:18 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you today??

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 08:32 AM

I'm ok thanks!


tamobhuuta 09-07-2022 10:00 AM

Hi Cacoethes and Zurg, how are you?

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 10:11 AM

Hey tamo

I'm ok thanks
It's very warm today!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-07-2022 10:27 AM

I'm ok. I fell asleep in my clothes last night :/

Zurg 09-07-2022 10:31 AM

That's okay Tamo. Sometimes you're just very sleepy and it catches you by surprise <3

It's quite cool and very windy here Beckie.

I am doing a shitload of laundry. I wonder if i'll be finished….?? It feels really overwhelming but i Think if i have had worse if i search my memory system a bit ;-)

not_so_insig 09-07-2022 11:03 AM

It's warm here too. It's supposed to be 28 degrees tomorrow yuk!

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 11:47 AM

Lucky you zurg!
Apparently it's 22°here but feels MUCH hotter!

Good luck with your laundry!

Ugh. I've got an exercise class tomorrow as well.
But it is in the morning so hopefully won't be too hot.
I imagine the gym would be air conditioned anyway? Idk

one_step_closer 09-07-2022 02:17 PM

Afternoon everyone, how are your days going?

21 degrees here at the moment. I've only been out to get my prescription then straight back home to stay in.

tamobhuuta 09-07-2022 02:33 PM

My phone says 25 but it feels much hotter.

one_step_closer 09-07-2022 04:51 PM

I never know how to judge the heat and what to wear when I go to the chemist.

My hay fever is being annoying.

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 05:24 PM


Zurg 09-07-2022 06:36 PM

Come here!!! We have 17 degrees!!! And Wind!!! And the occasional rain!!! :D

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 06:42 PM

Sooooo jealous!!!

nonperson 09-07-2022 08:07 PM

I'm definitely jealous of Zurg's weather. =(

I got stung on the head by a wasp this evening at work. *thumbs up* D=

Zurg 09-07-2022 08:22 PM

NO!!! NP!! You have been injured on duty!!! And by a vicious, serial killing, unsympathetic creature!!! You should be awarded a medal for bravery and persistence!!!

nonperson 09-07-2022 08:42 PM

Yeah I probably need to report it as an "incident". I only walked casually past the nest, it was a completely unprovoked attack.

I really do deserve a medal!

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 09:04 PM

Oh noooo np!

nonperson 09-07-2022 09:06 PM

I do not recommend scalp stings.

I'm also slightly amused/concerned that any members of the public passing by might heard me swearing like a trooper because I was right by the gate when it happened.

Cacoethes 09-07-2022 09:12 PM

Well i think it's a perfectly acceptable thing to swear about!

nonperson 09-07-2022 09:12 PM

Oh so do I =P

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 07:55 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 10-07-2022 08:39 AM

Morning all.

How are you doing today Beckie?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 08:46 AM

Morning Dawn!

I'm good thanks!

How are you?
Any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 10-07-2022 10:39 AM

Hello :) how are you?

not_so_insig 10-07-2022 11:10 AM

I am ok thanks Beckie. I am going out somewhere but dunno where yet.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 11:41 AM

Hey tamo

How are you?

Glad you're ok dawn

I've just been to a very intense exercise class and now i am going to die on the sofa for the rest of the day XD

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 01:07 PM

Just rest please, Beckie. No dying! Did you enjoy your class?

I hope you enjoy yourself wherever you go, Dawn.

How is your day going, Tamo?

It looks way too hot for me to venture out today.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 01:24 PM

I am resting, don't worry!
I did enjoy it thanks!

It is way too hot lindsay!
27° here
I'm going to change my bedsheets today but going to wait until it gets a bit cooler so i don't pass out while doing it XD

Are you having a chill day lindsay?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 01:31 PM

One app says it's 21 degrees here and the other says 23 degrees. I've already changed my bedding. Do we have another RYL day? Sundays being bedding change day? We should create one so we can all encourage each other.

I'm trying to decide whether to phone Duty or not. I probably shouldn't since things have calmed down a bit for now. They're likely to get worse soon though and I won't be able to call. I really annoy myself. Right now I'm trying to keep Crookshanks cool but he won't go upstairs where the bathroom window is open he prefers to sit on my lap downstairs where I'm not opening any windows because of the pollen.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 01:37 PM

That is an excellent idea!
Sunday seems like a good day to do it!

If you feel like you need to phone then i say go for it!
I'm sure they'd rather you call now than call when things are at their very worst.

Have you got those cooling mat things you could keep downstairs?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 01:42 PM

I tried them before and he didn't like it. He's off my lap and on the floor now. I think he knows how to keep himself cool anyway.

What are you getting up to in your rest mode?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 01:48 PM

I'm sure if he was uncomfortable he would let you know

Just watching criminal minds and considering going to asda. But probably won't because #reasons

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 04:52 PM

I hope you're doing what's best for you.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 04:53 PM

Hard to know what that is sometimes

I have changed bed sheets, put washing away and showered!
Now i can chill until bedtime

It is still far too hot

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 04:55 PM

It is hard to know sometimes.

You've done lots, definitely time to chill. Is it cool enough in your house?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 04:57 PM

Yeah my house stays quite cool luckily!

How about yours?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 05:02 PM

Yeah mine is cool enough. It's just a wooden house with external insulation. When they put the insulation on they said I'd notice it was less cold in the winter but I've never noticed, it just feels as cold as usual.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 05:05 PM

I have no idea how this house is insulated. The house isn't old so it's probably fairly energy efficient

nonperson 10-07-2022 08:31 PM

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 06:47 AM

Haha! Yes i saw that was on!
