Afternoon everyone, how are you all getting on?

tamobhuuta 16-05-2022 02:31 PM

I'm ok, waiting for meds after my blood test. How are you?

one_step_closer 16-05-2022 04:52 PM

Some practical things are going ok but still struggling.

What are you doing with your evening?

Cacoethes 16-05-2022 05:28 PM

Hey everyone!
I'm getting to finish work 30 mins early :-D
Good shift, even if I did have to serve my psychiatrist. Awks

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 06:40 AM

That must have been difficult Beckie.

Morning all. Looks like I beat Beckie again :laugh:

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 07:22 AM

Morning! Yes you did!

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 11:00 AM

Morning. Do the early peeps just go on RYL as soon as their eyes open? :laugh:

I prefer to get some other things done before I go online.

How is everyone today? It's my turn to wait in for parcels.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 11:09 AM

Nah i was up for a good 20-30 mins when i posted!

I'm good!
My bed came and was built by 2 really lovely guys!
I have parcels to wait for but currently in a coffee shop. Been to library, vape shop, asda and waiting for prescription. Hence coffee shop

tamobhuuta 17-05-2022 11:12 AM

I'm going for a coffee later.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 11:17 AM

Sounds good!

I have an iced caramel latte that tastes like creme brulee!

tamobhuuta 17-05-2022 11:19 AM

Mmm tastey. I'll have some kind of hot latte

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 11:28 AM

It's waaay to hot for a hot latte!!!

tamobhuuta 17-05-2022 11:45 AM

Never too hot.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 12:04 PM

It's 22c!!!
Glad I'm home and can cool down!

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 12:51 PM

You've done loads Beckie.

It's far from hot here. It's dull and cold. I wanted to put my washing out but there's meant to be rain showers at points too.

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 12:56 PM

It's 19 degrees here. I was awake early because I was hot. Unfortunately I am waiting for an amazon parcel otherwise I would go outside.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 01:00 PM

Yep! The only problem with doing stuff early is that i now have nothing to do for the rest of the day!
Apart from put washing away and put sheets on the bed. But both of those will only take like 10 minutes!

It blows my mind how it can be sooo sunny and hot here and cold in another part of the UK!
I do hope it cools down later though. I have glow beatz tonight!

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 01:21 PM

Sometimes it's hotter in Lorraine's part of Scotland than it is in Wales. But not today according to Google.

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 01:36 PM

Do you know when your parcel is coming Dawn?

I know Beckie, I prefer to get everything done at the start of the day but then don't know how to occupy myself afterwards. At least you have your class later on.

One of my parcels has arrived. I had to get a new phone because my current phone battery keeps going to 1% minutes after I've charged it to 100%. Hoping I've saved everything to icloud so it can be transferred to my new phone. Setting it up at the moment.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 01:39 PM

Yep, really looking forward to glow beatz!

Just put the duvet cover and pillow covers on.
Need to let the mattress topper settle in a well ventilated room apparently so haven't put the sheet on yet.

My parcels have arrived!

That's annoying lindsay!
What phone did you get?
I love getting new phones

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 01:45 PM

The excitement for bed time grows!

Anything exciting in your parcels?

I got an iPhone 12. I never get the newest one. I stick to iPhones because I know how to work them. The one I'm having battery problems with is a 7 and I've had it for a long time so can justify getting a new one.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 01:53 PM

Oh yes!

Just toilet roll (60 rolls!) and new bras.

Fair enough! I don't know a lot about iphones but isn't the 7 really old?! Impressive that you've kept it that long!
I stick with android for the same reason, I know how to work them!

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 01:58 PM

I have android too.

My parcel is supposed to come any time between now and 3 pm. It's got Tim Tams, cat food, a Hetty Wainthropp dvd and a book. Oh and something I am not sure if it's against the rules to mention.

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 02:25 PM

My parcel is here.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 04:28 PM

I'm going to die at glow beatz XD

not_so_insig 17-05-2022 04:56 PM

Take plenty of coke zero with you Beckie!

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 05:00 PM

I actually take water! Which i have put in the fridge in my little cool bottle thingy. It stays very cold!

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 05:06 PM

Well the latest iPhone is 13 so the 7 is old but it's been good to me up until now.

Do you ever not have parcels coming Dawn?!

I hope you get on ok with your class Beckie. Do they have air conditioning? Drink all your water!

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 05:12 PM

Ah that's good!
I'm terrible for new phones. As soon as my contract is up, i upgrade to the latest Samsung! Shouldn't really do that!

Thanks lindsay :)
No air conditioning unfortunately!
She just opens the 3 double doors (fire escapes)
I will get very warm!

one_step_closer 17-05-2022 05:14 PM

I just go for pay as you go instead of contract phones.

Don't be pushing yourself too hard then if it's going to be really warm.

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 05:24 PM

Sensible. It's a lot cheaper!

I'll be fine :)
I can always slip outside if i need to
I want to get there early so i can get a spot at the back
I was late last week and had to go in the second row from the front!!!

Cacoethes 17-05-2022 07:25 PM

There are no spots at the back! D:
I got second from back which is better than last time!
The instructor said she enjoyed having me close to the front lol!

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 07:54 AM


tamobhuuta 18-05-2022 11:46 AM

Hi how are you?

one_step_closer 18-05-2022 11:48 AM

Morning both, how are you?

How was sleeping in your new bed, Beckie?

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 11:53 AM

Hey guys!

I'm ok thanks!

Sleeping on my bed was AMAZING!!!
I slept so well!

one_step_closer 18-05-2022 11:57 AM

That's really great. And you managed to get out of bed!

not_so_insig 18-05-2022 01:51 PM

Hello all. It's very hot here.

tamobhuuta 18-05-2022 03:50 PM

Hi insig.

I am ok but frustrated because my sister has gone off with dangerous intentions.

one_step_closer 18-05-2022 04:50 PM

Is your sister back Tamo? I'm sorry you're having to go through this.

It's been quite hot here too, although I wore my jacket when I went out in the morning.

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 05:19 PM

Boiling here!
But finished work early so having a nice cold rekorderlig.

Been a very slow day!

tamobhuuta 18-05-2022 05:44 PM

Yeah my sister is back safely. How are you?

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 05:45 PM

That's good tamo

nonperson 18-05-2022 07:19 PM

Evening all. How's everybody?

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 07:23 PM

Hey np!
I'm good!
How are you?

nonperson 18-05-2022 07:34 PM

Good to hear.

I'm alright, tired and achey though.

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 07:54 PM

Yeah same tbh!

It feels later than Wednesday!

Oh i totally outed myself as a complete weirdo today.
I disclosed to my colleagues that i have a favourite glass wash (the one on the right) and apparently that is very very strange!
But i don't think it's any different than having a favourite spot on your hob!

nonperson 18-05-2022 08:14 PM

This week is going too quickly for me.

Haha, I don't think that's weird at all!

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 08:16 PM

I feel like it's going slowly!

Thank you!!
People at work were just looking at me like...wtf?!

nonperson 18-05-2022 08:18 PM

There's just not enough hours in the week to get things done at the moment.

Ah I got one of those wtf looks from our student today too! =P I don't particularly care.
