Hey guys.
Had my visit and it was lovely.
He's gonna try and come next Sunday depending on what trains are doing.

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 04:48 PM

Greetings!

Hope you are all having good days and enjoying your visitors (or lack of visitors, sorry Lindsay!)

one_step_closer 15-04-2023 04:51 PM

That's great, Beckie. I hope he is able to come again. What are you doing now?

Just rub it in, Jenna! Did you have any visitors today?

Cacoethes 15-04-2023 04:58 PM

Hey jenna!

I'm just resting now.
Been sat up a lot today and I'm shattered!

one_step_closer 15-04-2023 05:02 PM

Will you watch something/listen to music while you're resting?

Cacoethes 15-04-2023 05:20 PM

Yeah got some music on :)

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 05:24 PM

Oh, you outninja’d me Beckie! Glad you had a nice time with your friend :)
Lindsay, hell no, no people today thank you very much! How are you doing?

one_step_closer 15-04-2023 05:25 PM

What are you listening to? I hope you have a peaceful evening and sleep well.

I'm just going offline to do some reading and watch a bit of a dvd. See you tomorrow.

Ninja Jenna! As above to you too.

nonperson 15-04-2023 05:51 PM

Aw I'm too late to let Lindsay know I'm in the No Visitors Today club as well.

Ahimsa 15-04-2023 06:08 PM

Hi all!

Also no visitors for me, I've just got back from work!

nonperson 15-04-2023 06:43 PM

I might rephrase it as the No People Today club.

long road 15-04-2023 07:31 PM

Today is a Nothing day and also a No People Today day for me. Unless you count my partner but he is always here!

Last night was a lot. So today has been deliberately
Nothing. With a very whacky sleeping pattern.

*Waves sleepily to the thread"

Love it!

I just made GF vegan custard creams and assumed you all like to know.

Cacoethes 15-04-2023 10:28 PM

How is that even possible??

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 10:31 PM

Well, GF flour, vegan butter, everything else is normal! I don't like them but made them for K and they report that they are excellent so I'm thrilled =D

nonperson 15-04-2023 10:33 PM

There's probably nicer things to spend the time recreating than a custard cream... although I suppose there's a chance that they've been improved by altering the entire recipe... O.o

Edit: not entire recipe but you get the gist.

Cacoethes 15-04-2023 10:35 PM

Wow! I'm in awe of all the GF and vegan products they have now. It's excellent that they're finally catching up with other kinds of diets!

I do love a custard cream.

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 10:35 PM

Well I know what not to bake for you...

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 10:36 PM

^that was aimed at np!

nonperson 15-04-2023 10:37 PM

I think I OD'd on them when young... I'm not sure I'd choose to eat one even if it was the last biscuit on Earth.

Jeez. What did Beckie do to deserve that harsh response :tongue2:

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 10:38 PM

Indeed Beckie! The man who runs a vegan shop up here has been a vegan for like 40 years or something and it must have just been so difficult and not fun even 10 years ago let alone any further back.

Haha, strong feelings!! What would I bake for you then?

nonperson 15-04-2023 10:49 PM

Brownies.

Pi.R^2 15-04-2023 11:01 PM

Excellent, I make tasty brownies! Need to try out creme egg brownies again at some point where you put a thin layer of what is essentially creme egg filling on the top and then I don't remember what you put on top of that!

nonperson 15-04-2023 11:05 PM

They sound amazing!

Ahimsa 15-04-2023 11:14 PM

Hi all,

I fell asleep!

nonperson 15-04-2023 11:46 PM

Back to bed soon then?

Pi.R^2 16-04-2023 08:37 AM

Morning! Hope everyone slept well and didn't have someone next to them complaining about being so tired it hurt at 5am and when suggested that they should maybe stop talking so they could go to sleep, merely stating 'I cannot' and continue talking...

tamobhuuta 16-04-2023 10:05 AM

Oh dear, not good Pi. I rub my good night's sleep in your face.

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 10:13 AM

Hahaha! That would defo be me as a partner XD

I slept past 10am!!!
I haven't done that in literal years.
I can't even remember the last time i slept past 8:30am!

tamobhuuta 16-04-2023 10:57 AM

How do you feel after your lie in?

nonperson 16-04-2023 11:15 AM

Morning all. That is really not acceptable at all, Jenna...

I slept averagely... My only problematic sleep partner was the cat trying to sleep on my face.

Pi.R^2 16-04-2023 11:16 AM

Haha, what a problematic cat!

Congrats on the lie-in Beckie- are you feeling well-rested?

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 11:22 AM

I feel rather groggy tbh!

Out of all the spots in the house, why would he want to sleep on your face??

nonperson 16-04-2023 11:26 AM

Because then we're both not alone <3

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 11:37 AM

That's so cute <3

nonperson 16-04-2023 11:43 AM

To be honest I think he does it when he gets too hot under the covers and/or fed up of me rolling around and kicking him off the bed =P

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 11:43 AM

Haha! A not so subtle telling off then! :p

Pi.R^2 16-04-2023 12:10 PM

Haha! You seem to have such a friendly cat - I guilted my parents into getting a cat one time and he was such a little grump who only acknowledged our existence when he wanted food.

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 12:31 PM

Sounds pretty standard for most cats

I've just watched chicken run

Sounds like my cat!

nonperson 16-04-2023 01:00 PM

He's not a normal cat, that's for sure. =)

I have not seen Chicken Run in forever!

Pi.R^2 16-04-2023 01:25 PM

Lio has overly-friendly cats too, which I'm threatened by. (I mean, on a preservation of life-level they are also threatening due to how sneezy they make me!).

nonperson 16-04-2023 01:31 PM

Aw, that's just sad that you can't enjoy them the way they want to enjoy you =(

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 01:35 PM

Chicken run is a classic.
Apparently there's a 2nd one in the making!

Ahimsa 16-04-2023 01:52 PM

Hi all,

How is everyone?

I'm just on my lunch break at work.

Cacoethes 16-04-2023 01:53 PM

Hello!
What's for lunch today?

one_step_closer 16-04-2023 01:53 PM

Hey everyone.

Yay for cat chat! Crookshanks is warming my lap right now and purring and I'm having to angle my laptop in an uncomfortable position just so he can put his chin on the arm of the couch. Cats must come first!

I've watched Chicken Run but can't remember much about it. A film with chickens in it sounds dull.

I close my bedroom door so Crookshanks can't go in and destroy and try to eat anything. I'd love to have him in bed with me but on trials he just does the destroying and trying to eat things. And I don't have a partner so get the whole bed and peace to sleep. :-)

Edit: how is your day going Ahimsa? Do you have something tasty for lunch?

Ahimsa 16-04-2023 01:53 PM

Leftover takeaway from last night, I was too tired to cook!

I brought my laptop to work, so I'm spending my lunch break doing the things I should have done last night.
