I may have only just got out of bed properly but I am feeling positive today. And its sunny.

Cacoethes 02-04-2020 12:15 PM

Fingers crossed for you!

Glad you are feeling positive Lillie! :)

chinahorse 02-04-2020 01:10 PM

Cleaned the house :-) amazing how quickly it gets dirty when you're in it a lot. Havent done the bathroom though. Cba.

Blooming porridge exploded in the microwave grrr

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 01:17 PM

Well done for cleaning lillie!

I need to do my room at the weekend.

chinahorse 02-04-2020 01:22 PM

Thanks :-)

Weekend is bedding change for me.

nonperson 02-04-2020 01:32 PM

Afternoon all.

Oh no, porridge explosions are awful!

Oddly enough my house is staying so much cleaner although I'm in it all the time. Not because I'm cleaning more but just because I'm not going to work and dragging all sorts of dirt and muck and soil home with me!

I have no dirt under my fingernails either. My hands are disturbingly clean and soft.

Cacoethes 02-04-2020 03:54 PM

Well done for the cleaning Lillie!

Usually clean and soft hands would be a good thing np :p

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 04:08 PM

I'm finding my house is cleaner too, and I'm not doing as much washing either so my electricity bill is happy with me hehe.

I did get lots of work to do over the easter holidays, boo.

nonperson 02-04-2020 04:21 PM

My hands are never clean and soft though, Beckie! It is a good thing, just hard to get used to. =P

Boo indeed to lots of Easter work, Alison. =/

chinahorse 02-04-2020 05:05 PM

I'm doing less laundry too Alison not quite caught up yet though. Usually wear 3 outfits a day which amounts to a lot of washing. (Work uniform, travel to work clothes and pjs)

Least the work will keep you busy?

Aldi was horrific. I have enough food now to last about 3 to 3.5 weeks and after that I will starve or eat take away until the world is normal again.

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 05:50 PM

It should do. Have put it all in a folder for now, will look at it properly later.

Aldi here too was manic this morning. I’m getting really fed up of having to go shopping early in the morning or everything is out of stock

not_so_insig 02-04-2020 05:53 PM

My mum got me a load of toilet roll and cat food. So if I cant get a Tesco shopping order I will be ok as my freezer is full.

chinahorse 02-04-2020 06:01 PM

The only thing aldi didnt have here was pasta. There was loo roll but no choice. They seem to have resigned themselves to the fact they won't get more stock and are using the shelves for cider.

nonperson 02-04-2020 07:13 PM

I'm going to have to brave a food shop soon, I've maybe got a week's worth of food left. I won't mind if there's no pasta but plenty of cider. =)

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 08:47 PM

I’ve been going every day because we live a stones throw away from all the big supermarkets and we don’t have a car. I don’t know if I should be going out everyday though?

nonperson 02-04-2020 10:45 PM

You're allowed out for exercise every day, but food shopping should be done as infrequently as possible.

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 11:21 PM

So would getting a taxi to deliver it be ok? Or should I ask for help?

nonperson 02-04-2020 11:28 PM

Are taxis still running? You'd be within two metres of the driver. I don't know what the answer is... You should be able to carry enough back in one go to last a few days at least?

The Worst Witch 02-04-2020 11:40 PM

Yeah, taxis here are doing food shops for vulnerable people who can’t get food shops because of no delivery slots amd all you pay for is the shopping. Alternatively could carry stuff! Thanks np

tamobhuuta 03-04-2020 11:26 AM

Good morning everyone x

nonperson 03-04-2020 12:44 PM

Morning Tamo and everyone.

chinahorse 03-04-2020 01:35 PM

Hey guys. Work is so boring. How are you all?

tamobhuuta 03-04-2020 01:49 PM

I'm ok, watching TV now but will have a quick pray with my sister soon. Then of course I've got to watch doctors!

one_step_closer 03-04-2020 02:20 PM

Afternoon. I hope you're all getting on ok.

tamobhuuta 03-04-2020 02:45 PM

You up to anything osc?

chinahorse 03-04-2020 02:52 PM

Are they still filming drs?

I had a halloumi wrap and piri piri fries for lunch. Tasty!

not_so_insig 03-04-2020 03:00 PM

No they're not filming Doctors, Eastenders, Holby City or Casualty BBC wise. ITV have stopped filming Emmerdale and Corrie.

one_step_closer 04-04-2020 11:44 AM

Hey everyone. How are you all?

nonperson 04-04-2020 11:47 AM

Hey Lindsay.

Bit sad this morning. How're you doing today?

one_step_closer 04-04-2020 12:00 PM

Oh no *hugs if ok* Can we do anything to help?

I'm itchy, my eczema is flaring up. And I'm dreading the rest of the day.

Do you have anything planned for today?

nonperson 04-04-2020 12:08 PM

Thanks. The state of the world is getting me down, don't think anyone can help with that. =/

Ugh, itchiness is so irritating. Have you got cream and stuff for it?

No plans. Really should attempt to go outside today though.

tamobhuuta 04-04-2020 01:21 PM

Np can you make a list of good things about the world? Number one, you are a wonderful human being.

nonperson 04-04-2020 01:37 PM

Thanks Tamo. Number 2 - so are you. <3

I dunno, I'm even seeing sadness in the sunshine at the moment.

Serendipity. 04-04-2020 01:39 PM

Sorry things are getting you down np. I'm feeling that way today too.

Oh dear Lindsay, I hope your eczema settles down a bit soon.

I'm at work for the weekend and it's very quiet. But I do have jelly babies!

nonperson 04-04-2020 01:41 PM

Sorry you're feeling down as well.

Is quiet good? What do you do?

What's your favourite colour jelly baby? =)

chinahorse 04-04-2020 01:48 PM

I'm boooooored and fed up.

nonperson 04-04-2020 01:50 PM

At work or home?

chinahorse 04-04-2020 01:52 PM


nonperson 04-04-2020 01:53 PM

Rubbish. =( Time for more Disney+ and crocheting?

chinahorse 04-04-2020 01:56 PM

This afternoon. Only 5 mins till lunch so not enough time to do anything really.

nonperson 04-04-2020 01:59 PM

That's something to look forward to later then. And also not long to wait til lunch. What's on the menu today?

chinahorse 04-04-2020 02:03 PM

I have red pepper,baby plum tomatoes,a carrot, sweet chili hummus and a pitta.

nonperson 04-04-2020 02:05 PM

Sounds nice. =)

Maybe I'll add pitta bread to my shopping list.

chinahorse 04-04-2020 02:12 PM

It's my fav sort of lunch.

Have to get hummus if you get pitta though

nonperson 04-04-2020 02:25 PM

Yeah, quite agree. I'm a bit love/hate with hummus. Can't decide if I really like it or not so I don't get it very often.

chinahorse 04-04-2020 02:35 PM

Flavoured stuff is nice. The original is like wallpaper paste.

Serendipity. 04-04-2020 03:02 PM

I don't mind the original but flavoured is better!

Np, I'm a support worker in supported accommodation. But we're having to limit face to face contact so it's quiet, which is a bit sad really!

tamobhuuta 04-04-2020 03:22 PM

I love hummus. With roasted vegetables in a pitta. And falafel. Mmmm.

one_step_closer 04-04-2020 03:33 PM

Mmm...food. I had a bagel with garlic soft cheese and ham with a tomato on the side.

nonperson 04-04-2020 03:45 PM

That sounds like my sort of lunch, Lindsay.
