Cacoethes 12-09-2022 01:08 PM

I'm ok thanks

one_step_closer 12-09-2022 01:53 PM

Afternoon people. How are you all? What have you been up to?

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 01:57 PM

Hey lindsay
I've been to asda
Not really much else to do with very little money!
Caught up with rings of power and now watching she hulk.

How about you?

one_step_closer 12-09-2022 02:08 PM

Is TV keeping you occupied? I can imagine it's hard to find things to do when you don't have a lot of money. There are things you can do though. Did you get anything nice from Asda?

I had a terrible sleep, the last time I looked at my watch it was 4.50am and I didn't get to sleep till way past that time. So I slept in. I'm worried about missing the morning because I'm catching up on sleep. I spend so much time in bed not sleeping. Anyway, I'm waiting on an Asda delivery and a Pets At Home delivery.

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 02:27 PM

Yeah kind of.
Just the usual stuff from asda really.

That sounds really frustrating.
I wish i could suggest something helpful!

What time are your deliveries?

not_so_insig 12-09-2022 02:43 PM

I am feeling very physically unwell. But better than this morning and yesterday. Sat outside on my bench until it started raining which has helped. Am slowly tidying up my flat. I am ok as long as I take my time.

not_so_insig 12-09-2022 02:45 PM

Also waiting for a delivery too but according to tracking it's coming between 4 pm and 6 pm.

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 02:51 PM

I'm finally watching thor: love and thunder!
Wanted to see it in the cinema but no time/money
Yay disney +!!

one_step_closer 12-09-2022 05:06 PM

My Pets At Home delivery came and then straight after my Asda delivery came. Good timing.

Look after yourself, Dawn. I hope you feel better soon.

I'm glad you're getting to watch the film now, Beckie. Disney + does sound like it has some good stuff on it.

tamobhuuta 12-09-2022 05:10 PM

Thanks for the heads up insig!

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 05:10 PM

That's good!
I hope you have some nice things in your asda delivery

Disney + is awesome!

one_step_closer 12-09-2022 05:15 PM

I really want to see Hocus Pocus 2 which will only be on Disney +. Do you like the original Hocus Pocus?

How has your day been, Tamo?

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 05:27 PM

I haven't watched it in a while.
I did like it though

The Worst Witch 12-09-2022 06:15 PM

The original hovus pocus scared me even though I watched it for the first time at the grand old age of 35. I won’t be watching the second one, unless girlfriend wants to watch it.


Cacoethes 12-09-2022 06:17 PM

Haven't seen you in here in a while!
How are you?

The Worst Witch 12-09-2022 07:08 PM

I’m alright, tired after a busy weekend. How are you?

not_so_insig 12-09-2022 07:11 PM

My parcel has finally arrived. Had to chase the delivery driver as instead of my parcel I got a baby seat initially. Got my parcel though.

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 07:47 PM

I'm ok thanks.
Just trying to find ways to fill the days when not at work!
Sitting watching tv all day just doesn't do it for me

The Worst Witch 12-09-2022 07:52 PM

Any plans for your 3 weeks off, apart from Amsterdam?

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 07:58 PM

Will probably go and stay with my nanny for a bit in a couple of weeks. Not sure when though because i have a couple of appointments dotted around.

The Worst Witch 12-09-2022 08:00 PM

Cool :). I hope you have fun

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 08:17 PM

Thank you! :)

Have you got much going on?

The Worst Witch 12-09-2022 08:29 PM

Not really. Went to stay with my aunt this past weekend so that was nice, saw my cousin. Apart from that, just plodding along :)

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 09:29 PM

Sounds good!

Yep that's pretty much what I'm doing lol!

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 09:27 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 13-09-2022 09:56 AM

Morning all. I entered a competition a few months ago and I have won an odeon voucher.

tamobhuuta 13-09-2022 10:10 AM

Ooo exciting, what do you think you'll see?

Hi Cacoethes :) how are you?

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 10:39 AM


I'm ok thanks.
I really need to start filling my time with something other than learning Spanish and watching tv!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 13-09-2022 10:44 AM

Learning Spanish is good though! I am ok. I think I'm going to have a shower but I've not decided yet. I need to stay distracted because stupid thoughts have crept in the past couple of days. We're talking really stupid lol.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 11:04 AM

Yeah i guess so!
Just feels weird sitting in the house all day!

I know the feeling! Have you got many things to keep you distracted?

tamobhuuta 13-09-2022 11:17 AM

I'm reading a good book, that keeps me distracted as long as I can concentrate. Also TV and audio books help. I like to pray regularly but sometimes my head makes some of that too hard.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 11:29 AM

Good that you have these distractions set up :)

There's an lgbt+ coffee morning at geek retreat in B on Friday. I wish it was sooner!

tamobhuuta 13-09-2022 11:35 AM

A few days can feel like an age.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 11:57 AM

Yep! Especially when you have nothing to do!

not_so_insig 13-09-2022 12:00 PM

All the supermarkets are shutting (bar those in London) on Monday in case people didn't know. Tesco have said that online orders won't be fulfilled. The smaller convenience stores run by supermarkets and forecourt stations will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm. So if anyone needs any shopping done or needs to amend/place an shopping order then it's best done on the Sunday or Tuesday.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 12:48 PM

How inconvenient

not_so_insig 13-09-2022 12:50 PM

Also I dont know if it's the same across the country but pharmacies are shut here so if anyone has any meds to pick up then they're recommending that you do it on Friday.

one_step_closer 13-09-2022 02:35 PM

It may be inconvenient but it's for a good reason. It's just one day, right?

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 02:57 PM

Yeah and i probably wouldn't need to go to asda that day anyway. It just seems a bit ott and in my opinion, not a good reason to shut everything down. But that's in my opinion. I appreciate others will have differing views

nonperson 13-09-2022 04:27 PM

I think what a lot of people are failing to realise is that this is one of the biggest events in the history of our country, whether they agree with the royal family or not. It's just one day. Treat it like an extra bank holiday if you wish and ignore all the extravagance, but it means an awful lot to a huge amount of people and closing the shops for a day to show a bit of respect is not exactly a big deal.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 06:03 PM

I did day i appreciate others have differing views.
Those are mine personally.
It's not a big deal to shut the shops for one day. But is also inconvenient having things shut, regardless of the reason.

nonperson 13-09-2022 06:24 PM

I wasn't directing that at you or anyone here specifically, Beckie. Just the general whining masses. Just trying to make a point of what is more important - personal inconvenience or an act of respect.

Gonna go away now.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 06:30 PM

Fair enough!
I may have been unnecessarily defensive!

I do see your point though.
I am slightly worried about travelling into London on the 19th though. Unfortunately unavoidable.
Luckily i don't have to be there for a specific time

The Worst Witch 13-09-2022 07:27 PM

Do you have to go to London Beckie? I’d avoid it if at all possible.

Evening everyone.

NP, don’t go away! You’re allowed to express your opinion, just like everyone else.

nonperson 13-09-2022 08:33 PM


I know, Alison. I'm just not particularly talkative at the moment and I guess the situation is a lot more personal for me because of where I work and live. *shrug*

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 08:45 PM

Yeah i do. Eurostar is early Tuesday morning and I'm staying at my friend's in London for easier access to st pancras. No way of getting there that early from home on Tuesday morning.

I'm sorry if i caused any offence np.
That certainly was not my intention
I accidentally offended my best friend regarding this also.
I do need to learn to keep my mouth shut at times!

nonperson 13-09-2022 09:07 PM

I'm not offended. You can say whatever you want.

Would travelling down on Sunday be an option?

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 09:17 PM

I'm glad you're not offended.
My social skills aren't fantastic some of the time

My friend is busy until late on Monday so unfortunately not.

nonperson 13-09-2022 09:34 PM

Neither are mine!

Ah that's a shame. Just allow plenty of time then.

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 09:43 PM

I can just about keep up an acceptable level of social-ness when talking to customers. Rest of the time....nope!

Yeah i will.

All kicking off in the work group chat!
