I have tried golden crunch creams! They are lush

Get biscuits lindsay!
I'm not sure if people are panic buying those or not
Man I'm so far removed from reality in here

chinahorse 17-03-2020 12:57 PM

Not yet beckie. Mainly theres no eggs, bread, pasta, flour, loo roll, tinned soup or anti bacterial products.

Loads of pasta sauce though and cheese though so I hope people are going to enjoy their dry af pasta.

nonperson 17-03-2020 02:05 PM

No cold and flu and decongestant stuff in my Asda yesterday. And also no chopped tomatoes of any kind.

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 02:24 PM

That's odd Lillie. What are these people having with their pasta?!

Argh how annoying np!

My nanny is self isolating for 12 weeks. She's been at it a few days and is already going stir crazy! She's a very social person and is out every day so this is tough for her.

nonperson 17-03-2020 02:28 PM

Does she know how to use Skype or anything like that, Beckie?

nonperson 17-03-2020 02:29 PM

Also, they must be having chopped tomatoes with pasta!

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 02:36 PM

Nope she's not good with technology!
She has a mobile phone but has no idea how to use it other than answering calls!

They must be np!
Or pesto. What's the pesto situation?

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 02:38 PM

I hope it gets easier for your nanny C

I have a question though-

why are people buying toilet rolls? the virus does nothing to your stomach

How is everyone?

probably np

EyelinerAndCigarettes 17-03-2020 02:44 PM

I couldn't find any pesto the other day which made me very sad :( I found 1 pack of spaghetti though so I'm currently living off spaghetti and sauce and cheese! yummy

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 02:44 PM

I guess it's because they might have to self isolate so they need enough toilet roll to last them 2 weeks or however long they are isolating for

Anything involving pasta is a good meal!
Sad about the pesto though :(

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 02:45 PM

yummy! how are you Eyeliner & Cigarettes?

That makes sense, how are you C?

chinahorse 17-03-2020 02:53 PM

Yes but people are buying like 48 loo rolls. That'll last 2 years not 2 weeks.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 17-03-2020 02:54 PM

I'm not too bad thanks :)

tamobhuuta 17-03-2020 02:54 PM

I'm home!

I had left over pasta for lunch.

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 02:57 PM

I'm ok
Less annoyed than yesterday but still annoyed because ward round is still cancelled
I can't get out of here or get leave without ward round!

It is excessive Lillie!

Yay for being home tamo!

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 02:59 PM

Exactly! Maybe they plan to self isolate themselves for that long?

It must feel good to be home after so long

How are you Tamo?

I feel a huge talk about pasta coming around-

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:00 PM

Why'd they cancel ward round?

Maybe you can ask a nurse if she comes around to talk to them for you?

tamobhuuta 17-03-2020 03:01 PM

When I was little I loved ravioli in a can.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:02 PM

I've never had ravioli-

Whats your favorite type of pasta now?

tamobhuuta 17-03-2020 03:08 PM

Spaghetti with quorn meatballs and tomato sauce.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:11 PM

Ooh yummy! Meatballs are great!

I don't like tomato's much though

chinahorse 17-03-2020 03:15 PM

I need to go to the post office and get cat food and ugh. Cant face it. But if I get the virus (matter of time with my job) then I need to have enough food in for Bertie bum. Oh and get electric before I go onto emergency credit.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:18 PM

Whats your job China?

Hopefully not though

chinahorse 17-03-2020 03:19 PM

Dental nurse.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:20 PM

Oh, do you like it so far?

chinahorse 17-03-2020 03:21 PM

Been doing it for over a year and a half. Yeah I like it.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:23 PM

Also, hows Bertie?

chinahorse 17-03-2020 03:34 PM

Overjoyed that I called in sick today and he can spend all day snuggling with me. He quite a clingy cat anyway.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 03:37 PM

That sounds good ^^

How are you though?

chinahorse 17-03-2020 04:16 PM

I am physically fine thanks.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 04:17 PM

hope you feel better

any plans for today?

not_so_insig 17-03-2020 04:31 PM

I have had 4 things being cancelled this week due to coronavirus. I have my Tesco shopping order later on today. The only things that are essential are lemonade, cat food and toilet roll so who knows if I will have any of the above.

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 04:52 PM

Apparently the consultant will be in tomorrow so hopefully ward round will happen this week.
Then maybe I can get leave!

not_so_insig 17-03-2020 05:17 PM

Here's hoping Beckie.

chinahorse 17-03-2020 05:40 PM

Hopefully they will beckie.

Next door is playing loud music and I have eaten all my chocolate. (the work Im doing is so boring chocolate is required as bribery)

not_so_insig 17-03-2020 05:50 PM

My Tesco shopping order came early. I have no toilet roll :angry:

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 05:50 PM

I'm also going to appeal my section

What chocolate did you have Lillie?

Why not Dawn?

not_so_insig 17-03-2020 05:55 PM

Because of people panic buying they had none in Tesco.

chinahorse 17-03-2020 06:06 PM

I had giant white chocolate buttons.

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 06:09 PM

I want giant white chocolate buttons!
Yum!

chinahorse 17-03-2020 06:15 PM

Fb me where you are and Ill send you some :)

one_step_closer 17-03-2020 06:39 PM

I went to Tesco and got the second last pack of toilet roll. I approached it very slowly just to make it known I wasn't panic buying.

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 06:42 PM

You're a star Lillie!

Well done for getting some lindsay! That must be a relief!

nonperson 17-03-2020 07:03 PM

I also managed to find chopped tomatoes in Tesco this afternoon. Think I just happened to turn up at the right time as it was barely touched.

Bad news is that I'm now having to stay home for 12 weeks...!

Cacoethes 17-03-2020 07:08 PM

Oh no np!
Hope you'll be ok!
At lesst you have chopped tomatoes now

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 07:23 PM

I hope you'll be ok np!
Well your pasta won't be dry-


Random Question!!

Do any of you guys know the musical Mama Mia?

nonperson 17-03-2020 07:28 PM

I hope I'll be ok too... Don't think it's sunk in yet. I like the idea of being off work... but meh, maybe not for that long.

I know of it... and everyone knows the songs even if they don't know the musical.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 07:32 PM

Whats your favorite song np?

nonperson 17-03-2020 07:33 PM

None of them! Not an Abba fan.

Shirayuki 17-03-2020 07:34 PM

I didn't mean the Abba covers though-
