They're selling a Keeping Up Appearances t-shirt on Truffle Shuffle and I always think of you when I see it Dawn!

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 03:49 PM

We had to watch keeping up appearances in hospital because one of the older ladies wanted to watch it
No one was impressed

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 03:52 PM

Oh dear!

There's usually one person in the ward I go to who has total control of the remote.

Are you making full use of your remote control Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 04:01 PM

Generally people were pretty democratic with the remote
It was made harder by the fact it was a smart tv so we had the added choice of Netflix and amazon etc.

I am indeed making full use of my remote!

not_so_insig 04-12-2019 04:07 PM

We only had freeview in our local psych unit but it received an english region so people moaned about not getting local news.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 05:31 PM

It's dark so early now!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 05:56 PM

It is dark!

Bert's and I were having a nice nap.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:02 PM

Naps are good!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:06 PM

Yep :-) didnt realise how tired I was.

Have you managed to do some tidying?

not_so_insig 04-12-2019 06:08 PM

I am back from the vet. It's not too bad cold wise here.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:10 PM

Yep I have managed to do some tidying and unpacked all my hospital stuff.
Need to try and sort dentist and hair appointment tomorrow

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:11 PM

Bloody freezing all day here. I am very glad to be home.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:16 PM

It's not been too cold here really
I was quite warm out in my coat today!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:16 PM

Eek no! Poor outside worker you. I prescribe tea in the bath with a wooley hat on!

Ah good good beckie. Hope you manage to get them sorted.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:24 PM

That's a good idea Lillie!

Thanks :)

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:25 PM

If you need poking into action tomorrow let us know.

That sounds awful! :laugh:

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:28 PM

I probably will!!

Have you got much planned tomorrow?

Ninja post np!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:30 PM

D: my actual idea of heaven is being warm in the bath.

Erm is it the 5th tomorrow?

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:31 PM

My phone informs me it is.

I have an eye test and a psychiatrist appointment and need to see if they did my sick note at the gp and find out what's going on with getting a plumber to fix my loo,and pick up my painkillers from the chemist.

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:33 PM

I only like baths in the summer. And not a huge tea fan but I DO love a good wooley hat! =)

I've also got an eye test this week... Saturday though.

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 06:40 PM

Getting out of a bath is cold. Same with showers though.

The one thing I remember from physics at school is that you get cold because the water is turning to gas.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 06:41 PM

I'm not a huge bath fan tbh

Busy day then Lillie!

I've just cooked some Christmas tree shaped chicken nuggets

That's interesting lindsay!

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:42 PM

Which is why they're nice in the summer but not winter. Fine once you're in but it spoils it having to get out again.

It's not so bad in the morning though because the bathroom's all steamy so stops the evaporation on your skin. =P

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:43 PM

Oooh chicken nuggets. They'll taste even better in Christmas tree shapes. Kinda like those turkey dinosaurs.

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 06:45 PM

Decorate your nugget trees with tomato sauce!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 06:46 PM

They sound amazing beckie! Novelty shapes alter the tastiness of the food.

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 06:46 PM

I'm disappointed because people online kept going on about Poundland truffles being a good alternative to the expensive Lindor ones so I got some and they are yuck.

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:47 PM

Oh that is sad. =(

Lindor is amazing. I suppose it's expensive for a reason. =/

Best idea ever!

nonperson 04-12-2019 06:57 PM

Oh I missed that post. Totally agree it's the best idea ever! =o

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 07:00 PM

I did decorate them with tomato sauce and they were yummier than normal chicken nuggets!!

That's a shame lindsay
The lindor ball things are on special offer in asda atm but still expensive

tamobhuuta 04-12-2019 07:05 PM

I could eat a box of Lindor by myself.

nonperson 04-12-2019 07:05 PM

Me too. =D

Have you got a favourite flavour, Tamo?

chinahorse 04-12-2019 07:05 PM

Even the chocolate bar versions of lindt balls are expensive.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2019 07:06 PM

The normal red ones

nonperson 04-12-2019 07:19 PM

The red ones are the original and best.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 07:20 PM

One of the nurses bought me a lindor chocolate bar when I was first admitted
So good!

nonperson 04-12-2019 07:27 PM

I'm wondering if it's acceptable to hang christmas tree chocolates on house plants...

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 07:32 PM

I would say so!

nonperson 04-12-2019 07:35 PM

I may get a tad festive then and do that. =)

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 07:42 PM

Do it!

There are soooo many perfume adverts on at the moment

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 07:46 PM

Definitely NP!

I know Beckie, they start and I'm like 'this looks like it's going to be a perfume advert' and it is. It's so easy to tell.

nonperson 04-12-2019 07:52 PM

The Amazon adverts are doing my head in at the moment too.

Cacoethes 04-12-2019 07:59 PM

It is lindsay
They are so ridiculous

Yeah they aren't great either np!

nonperson 04-12-2019 08:01 PM

And all the eHarmony adverts, plus all the variations... so cringe-worthy.

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 08:03 PM

I now have some kind of perfume advert music in my head.

nonperson 04-12-2019 08:04 PM

The Amazon song is in my head. >.<

one_step_closer 04-12-2019 08:05 PM

I can't remember the Amazon song so please don't elaborate!

chinahorse 04-12-2019 08:05 PM

The amazon advert where the couple buy their grumpy neighbour a gift but doesnt show what the gift is then it cuts to deal about an Alexa and it's not a friggin Alexa it's a long package does my head in. Just tell me what it is!
