Hey everyone

Stop procrastinating! Go and do stuff!

Ophiuchus 28-03-2020 01:18 PM

You're not the boss of me! :P

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 01:29 PM

Yes I am! :p

Anyone want to do a Harry Potter online pub quiz with me? Starts at 3pm. You just have to sign up for the links to the live feed and the answer sheet.

Fine. You're the boss of me.
I stopped procrastinating. Took me the entirety of Doctor Strange to edit my stuff, but it's done.

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 04:59 PM

Aww I missed it np!
My phone probably wouldn't have been able to cope anyway
It's being really laggy for some reason

Yay well done!

nonperson 28-03-2020 06:01 PM

You needed two devices anyway, Beckie. One to watch the live stream on and one for the score sheet but I guess you could have done it all on one really.

It was a bit of a shambles in the end! But a fun shambles. The stream got cut off half way through by Youtube for playing too many film clips and some of the answers were wrong. I got 60/63 though. =P

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 06:34 PM

That’s an impressive score!

one_step_closer 28-03-2020 06:39 PM

Nice one NP. :-)

nonperson 28-03-2020 07:28 PM

It wasn't very hard really, still good fun though.

Trying to decide whether to go for a quick walk or not...

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 09:52 PM

Did you go for a walk?

nonperson 28-03-2020 10:37 PM

I did not... But the clocks go back tonight so that might make me more inclined to go in the evening.

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 10:49 PM

Keep forgetting about the clock thing

not_so_insig 28-03-2020 10:51 PM

Actually the clocks go forward not back.

Cacoethes 28-03-2020 11:00 PM

I'm off to bed
Night guys

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 11:18 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 12:18 PM

Morning Lindsay.

I’m shattered. Stayed up playing Spyro last night with V, we didn’t go to bed until like 4 am ha. How are you?

nonperson 29-03-2020 12:32 PM

You're right, Dawn. Everyone knew what I meant though.

Morning all.

I did nearly an hour of yoga this morning, the first full practice in a very very long time. Feeling it now, going to ache more tomorrow, I think!

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 01:41 PM

Anyone know where to get cat litter that isn’t amazon? I was gonna get it off there but they’re charging double the price for it

not_so_insig 29-03-2020 02:15 PM

Pets at home website but there's about an hour's wait to get into the site. Also viovet.

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 02:17 PM

The deliveries from Pets At Home are taking up to 2 weeks to arrive.

Are their stores shut?

not_so_insig 29-03-2020 02:21 PM

No pets at home are still open as they're considered essential but the animals are not on the shop floor.

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 02:23 PM

I’ll have a look, thanks :)

nonperson 29-03-2020 02:46 PM

I use Petplanet for cat food and stuff. Lots of food out of stock on there and Pets At Home when I looked yesterday.

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 02:50 PM

I can get cat food just not litter. I always make sure the boys have food before I do.

Just not feeling good day (won’t elaborate on here as its general chat) amd started worrying. Now I can’t stop

nonperson 29-03-2020 03:14 PM

What sort of distraction type things can you do to break the worry cycle?

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 03:24 PM

I’m reading my book.

Do you like reading np?

chinahorse 29-03-2020 03:24 PM

I've got cat litter from jolleyes before. Doeant give you a set delivery day is why I dont get it from there more often.

Bertie is driving me crazy.

nonperson 29-03-2020 03:28 PM

Hope it's helping, Alison. What book is it? I do like reading, but struggle to concentrate a lot of the time.

What's he up to, Lillie? =/

chinahorse 29-03-2020 03:29 PM

Walking around the house wailing because he wants to go outside. Put him outside. Wails to come in.

nonperson 29-03-2020 03:34 PM

Ah. Wish I knew the answer to that predicament...

Geordi's asleep in the airing cupboard.

chinahorse 29-03-2020 03:41 PM

Aww bless him.

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 03:42 PM

Its a book by Cathy Kelly. My mum and I loved her, we used to swap books. I’ve read every one of her books. I like doing things that still remind me of her now the edge of grief has mostly settled down.

I know what you mean Lillie! Soot is walking around the house death wailing because everyone except me and him is asleep.

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 03:45 PM

I'm glad you have a way to connect to your Mum, Alison.

Feeding times have changed here just for today since the clocks went forward. The cats seem to understand.

nonperson 29-03-2020 04:01 PM

Are they getting their food an hour early?

tamobhuuta 29-03-2020 04:11 PM

It just snowed here!

nonperson 29-03-2020 04:14 PM

There was a snow flurry here earlier and I thought I was imagining it!

My mum had hail apparently. o.o

chinahorse 29-03-2020 04:19 PM

Very odd weather at the minute. Blue skies and sunny here.

Ivejuat come to lie knmy bed and try and nap because I didnt sleep well and disturbed thecat and now hes grumpy at me.

tamobhuuta 29-03-2020 04:31 PM

I hope you have a restful nap china.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 04:40 PM

Hey guys
Blue skies and sunny here but also windy and presumably cold

I've been in bed all day apart from getting up for meds and lunch

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 05:19 PM

Its cold here but it is sunny.

Just came back from Sainsburys and was stopped by the police. At least they’re taking it seriously now.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 06:22 PM

That's good that they are taking it seriously
I just wonder how they will know how much exercise people are doing
Like whether they are going on more walks than one or whatever

chinahorse 29-03-2020 06:46 PM

Its more to act as a deterrent to people surely? Like people are less likely to drive to the beach to walk their dog, or police now have the power to disperse teenagers in the park etc. I dont think if you quietly went out for two 30 min walks on your own every day in a spot with no people and stayed apart from those you did meet theyd care that much.

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 06:59 PM

People are still gathering at parks in towns nearby me. The sunshine is bringing them all out. I don't know if some people realise how serious things are.

chinahorse 29-03-2020 07:21 PM

You can report them to the police.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 07:51 PM

That makes sense Lillie

People are stupid

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 10:54 PM

People are stupid!

All the families and things have been taking their children to the park and things, they've had to close the gate on our local park because it was overrun by families. This is not a holiday, people are dying and everyone is treating it like one big holiday. It's disgusting.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:07 AM

Morning all.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:31 AM

Hey np. One day my phone will not autocorrect you to no. Today however is not that day.

I've cleaned the bathroom and showered. Whatre you up to?

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:50 AM

I don't mind being no. =)

That's more productivity than I've managed so far. I've had breakfast and am now sitting with the cat on my lap pondering what to do.
