It's ok Beckie I had to Google what year it is because I was convinced it was the year 2023.

Cacoethes 17-08-2022 08:56 PM

Thank you Jenna! :-D

Well, the last couple of years have been pretty f*cked up so who even knows anymore

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 07:58 AM


not_so_insig 18-08-2022 07:59 AM

Once again I am the first person to post and once again I am bloody boiling. :mad:

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 08:22 AM

I'm afraid i got there a minute before you dawn

tamobhuuta 18-08-2022 11:21 AM

Ninja posting!

Morning :)
My sister had to go to A&E last night but she's OK now. I was really worried. Hopefully she'll be too exhausted to do anything today!

How are you?

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 12:44 PM

Oh no that must be so worrying tamo

I'm ok
Just had pilates and been to asda
Now got a big gap before taekwando!

Have you got much planned today?

one_step_closer 18-08-2022 02:04 PM

I hope you and your sister are ok, Tamo. Look after yourself.

When is taekwando Beckie? (Don't know if I've spelt that right, computer says big red line.)

tamobhuuta 18-08-2022 02:05 PM

No plans, just enjoying the sunshine with a book. Did you enjoy your activities?

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 02:07 PM

It starts at 5:10pm
So got quite a bit of time to wait!

one_step_closer 18-08-2022 02:12 PM

That is quite a while. I'm not good with waiting, I just want to get on with things! Are you managing to occupy yourself?

What book are you reading, Tamo. There's no sun here. Is it a nice warm sun?

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 02:23 PM

I'm not good at not doing stuff but i don't have anything to do until then!
Trying to tell myself that it's ok to rest. I have been doing quite a lot lately.

one_step_closer 18-08-2022 04:37 PM

You can do things while you're resting, there are actives that are like rest too, not that I have any suggestions off the top of my head.

How are you all? As in people here now and people who pop up.

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 04:45 PM

I've started learning dutch on duolingo.
But may switch to Spanish or Italian.

one_step_closer 18-08-2022 04:47 PM

Are you not liking the Dutch? Learning a new language is a really good activity.

Cacoethes 18-08-2022 06:19 PM

The Dutch is good and i think I'm picking it up quite quickly! Think I'll stick with it actually

Taekwando was really good!

Have you got anything planned for this evening?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:31 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 10:02 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 10:06 AM

Ok thanks. Got my nail appointment in an hour and i am excited!
Also excited because i booked Amsterdam for September!

How are you?

Zurg 19-08-2022 10:35 AM

Morning all :-)

I have been enriched with a very fluffy, wee lady bunny yesterday :-)
She's adorable (and a tad destructive…!!)

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 10:40 AM

Hey zurg!

BUNNY!!! That's awesome!
What's her name?

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 10:42 AM

Those will be fun Cacoethes.

Aw how cute Zurg.

It's back to grey weather here today so no reading in the sunshine.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 11:02 AM

It's very clear and sunny here!
Windy though which is actually quite nice. Not too hot.
My nail lady is running a bit late so I'm waiting in the garden. She runs her salon from a cabin in her back garden. There are bunnies in the garden :-D

Zurg 19-08-2022 11:12 AM

Miss fluffybun is called Alberte. She was named Findus by the shelter until they discovered upon further inspection that she was a Girl XD

How often do you need to get the nails done, Beckie??
Hope it's at least not too hot anymore, Tamo!!!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 12:08 PM

Nails, Amsterdam, bunnies. I am excited for you all!

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 01:06 PM


I get them done every couple of months.

Thank you lindsay!
How's your day going?

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 02:09 PM

I was a big girl and went to the co op all by myself!

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 03:24 PM

Well done tamo!

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 03:38 PM

Have you had your nails done yet?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 03:55 PM

I love them so much!
I've had nails done, been to retail park and been to town.
Its been nice having a chilled day where i don't have to be rushing around to get to things at certain times.

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 04:58 PM

Well done, Tamo. Did you get anything nice?

I'm glad your day has gone well, Beckie and has been more chilled even though you've had things to do. What did you choose for your nails?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 05:04 PM

Thanks lindsay
I have sparkly kind of burgundy/purple apart from 2 naila on each hand that are black but with stars in the same burgundy/purple colour as the other nails. :-D
I have also bought a top online. Should be coming tomorrow!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 05:08 PM

Sounds cool. What's the top like? I hope you like it IRL.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 05:42 PM

I don't know how to post pics on here but it's plain black but it's got like black see through (opaque??) Sleeves/straps.
I'm not describing it that well lol
I asked my friend's opinion and he preferred that one. I did too. Even if it doesn't look good, it's next day delivery so i can easily just send it back and order one of the other options!
I've also bought some combat type boots with a chunky high heel. I hope i can walk in them!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 05:48 PM

Oh yes, don't want any tripping or having to ditch them for bare feet!

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 05:51 PM

Yep! I will have to practice!
They aren't ridiculously high so hopefully I'll be ok!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 05:52 PM

I'm sure you'll be fine. What are you doing with the rest of your evening?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:10 PM

Not a lot.
Just watching random films!
How about you?

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 06:14 PM

That all sounds very fancy!

one_step_closer 19-08-2022 06:17 PM

I'm supposed to be reading but can't focus. Will put the TV on soon, there's a documentary about a women's prison I want to watch.

What film are you watching now, Beckie?

How's your evening going, Tamo?

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:24 PM

I really need to stop spending money now XD

I love things like that lindsay

I'm watching moonfall. The moon falls out of orbit, earth gets ****ed up. From what i can tell, there is something alive in the moon. NASA has gone to sort stuff out.
I seem to be in a sci fi mood today. With a hint of apocalypse

Zurg 19-08-2022 06:31 PM

According to doctor who, the Moon is in fact an egg that's about to hatch!!! I might be back later with more interesting facts!!! XD

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 06:35 PM

That's what it reminded me of too! XD

Zurg 19-08-2022 06:46 PM

My bunny is offended because i've obstructed her access to the kitchen by closing the door….. She is sneaky!!! I don't trust her out there alone!!!!
The present silence indicates shenanigans….. but i am too comfy on my couch to go and investigate….

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 07:01 PM

How very dare you!
She's probably chewing something to pieces to punish you

Zurg 19-08-2022 08:18 PM

I know Beckie!!! It borders on animal abuse!!!!

tamobhuuta 19-08-2022 08:32 PM

I bought chocolate :) om nom nom

chinahorse 19-08-2022 08:41 PM

Ooo, what sort? Chocolate wins.

Cacoethes 19-08-2022 09:00 PM

You should be ashamed of yourself Zurg ;p

Yum chocolate!


chinahorse 19-08-2022 09:08 PM
