Urgh to football.

Cacoethes 01-10-2020 08:38 PM

I'm only interested when Norwich are playing and even then I don't care for watching the actual game. Just the scores.
Unless I physically go to a game because the atmosphere is amazing

tamobhuuta 01-10-2020 08:42 PM

I don't think I've ever been to a football match.

not_so_insig 01-10-2020 08:45 PM

I am not interested in football and I don't have access to sky sports anyway.

Cacoethes 01-10-2020 08:47 PM

It's lots of fun tamo!

tamobhuuta 01-10-2020 08:50 PM

If you say so Cacoethes..

Cacoethes 01-10-2020 08:51 PM


tamobhuuta 01-10-2020 08:53 PM

What are you doing this evening?

Cacoethes 01-10-2020 09:05 PM

Going to bed now!
I am unusually tired.

Goodnight everyone. Sleep well :)

tamobhuuta 01-10-2020 09:08 PM

I'm off to bed now too. Sweet dreams!

one_step_closer 02-10-2020 08:44 AM

Morning everyone. You should think about getting a spare pair of glasses (with your current prescription). I have a spare pair but I've never used it and I hope I won't have to.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 11:57 AM

That would have been the sensible thing to do lindsay!
I have some sunglasses but that's not going to help with the current weather!

yoyogirl 02-10-2020 12:03 PM

I am thinking of getting a new iPhone 8 Plus shortly

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 12:19 PM

Samsung ftw!!! :p

nonperson 02-10-2020 12:38 PM

Afternoon all.

My dad likes his Samsung phones too.

one_step_closer 02-10-2020 01:04 PM

I just keep getting iPhones because I know how they work.

nonperson 02-10-2020 01:09 PM

Hey Lindsay. =)

Yeah I was very frustrated when I switched to Android for the first time! Even now I still try to do things the iPhone way.

I keep thinking about changing back to an iphone again.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 01:22 PM

Don't do it np! Iphones suck!
But that may be because I don't know how they work :p
I have an ipod and ipad and am happy with those.
So idek why I'm so against iphones.

Currently sat in the opticians.
They said they can either try to bend them back into shape which has a high chance of breaking them or pop the lenses into new frames. I've said try bending them (it's cheaper) and if they break then I'll go for the new frames option.

nonperson 02-10-2020 01:33 PM

They work the same as an ipad just a bit smaller. =P

I hope the bending works! Definitely worth a try with that first.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 01:45 PM

I'm still suspicious :p

Yes worth a go. She's been at it for a while now and I haven't heard any snapping yet. She's using some sort of machine because I can hear it. She's not doing it near me.

nonperson 02-10-2020 01:56 PM

Do they warm the frames up first before bending?

one_step_closer 02-10-2020 02:06 PM

Yeah, I think that's what they do. But I've never seen such a wonky frame needed fixed!

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 02:47 PM

They fixed them! It's a miracle!
I can see properly again!

nonperson 02-10-2020 02:54 PM

Woohoo =D

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 02:56 PM

It really is a miracle. They were very wonky!
Lindsay has seen the photo!

Now I have all my errands done I can fill up my hot water bottles and relax!

What are you up to this afternoon np?

nonperson 02-10-2020 03:12 PM

Hooray for relaxing time. =)

Have you acquired more hot water bottles?

I'm up to nothing. I'm not at work though so that's good. Kinda just want to sleep but I should go food shopping and get it out of the way... and so that I actually have something to eat for dinner.

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 03:14 PM

Hi everyone

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 04:00 PM

I have 2 hot water bottles now!

You should go food shopping np. I always say it's best to get it over and done with. Especially as you still have time to get there before the after work rush!

I've just applied for student finance to restart my open University degree. So I'm hoping it all goes through ok..

Hi tamo

nonperson 02-10-2020 04:05 PM

Hey Tamo. How're you?

Ooh that's exciting, Beckie. How quick will you get to know how the application goes?

I know I should go shopping. The thing on google that says how busy it is says "not too busy" right now. Just so much effort and stress... =/ I think I need a full face mask just in case there are tears, lol.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 04:12 PM

They said it could take up to 6 weeks but I hope it doesn't take that long!

I know, shopping can be super stressful but it's like a plaster, you just have to rip it off all at once and it doesn't hurt as much!

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 05:21 PM

My Harry Potter tour has been cancelled :(

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 05:24 PM

Oh no :(
So sorry tamo. I know how much you were looking forward to that

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 05:32 PM

I've been preparing myself for it being cancelled but it's still very disappointing.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 06:14 PM

I can imagine

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 06:15 PM

How was your day? I'm glad your glasses are fixed.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 06:24 PM

I was fairly busy today and been out in the cold for most of it!
The weather is horrible today.
I've just had some lovely warming lentil soup though.
I think they've changed the recipe because it tastes different
My life is so thrilling

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 06:25 PM

Ooo i love lentil soup! We're having lentil curry.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 06:32 PM

Me too! A lentil curry sounds nice. Only if it's not spicy though! I can't deal with spicy at all!

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 06:33 PM

Me neither, my dad has instructions not to use anything spicey.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 06:40 PM

Ah that's good!
In that case it sounds lovely!

tamobhuuta 02-10-2020 06:47 PM

And now I'm drinking pretend champagne!

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 07:09 PM

Oooo nice!

nonperson 02-10-2020 07:25 PM

Longest shopping trip ever. o.o

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 07:27 PM

Why so long np?

nonperson 02-10-2020 07:38 PM

Two lots of roadworks plus early friday rush hour traffic so it took half an hour to get there, then somehow spent an hour in the shop, then had to get petrol too and then another nearly 30 minutes on the way back. o.o

Also Tamo I'm so sorry your tour got cancelled. =( That place is so amazing. Can you re-book?

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 07:50 PM

Oh wow!
I was wondering why you weren't about!
Well done for surviving that

nonperson 02-10-2020 07:58 PM

It surprisingly wasn't too stressful despite all of that. And the lady at the till actually ID'd me and called me pretty which made it all worthwhile, haha.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 08:03 PM

Awww that DOES make it worthwhile!
I never get IDd anymore. Woe.

nonperson 02-10-2020 08:11 PM

I haven't been ID'd in years. I guess it's because of wearing a mask, maybe my eyes didn't look as old as usual today.

not_so_insig 02-10-2020 08:12 PM

I havent got ided in the past 3 years but apparently I look 10 years younger than I am. I was ided buying an lottery ticket in my 30s! No way I look under 16.
