Thank you :)

one_step_closer 10-04-2020 09:00 PM

Woop! Woop!

Cacoethes 10-04-2020 09:05 PM


What's everyone up to this evening?

nonperson 10-04-2020 09:07 PM

Well done Beckie. =)

I did an hour of weeding. Will put pizza in the oven in a sec (haven't exactly deserved it today but who cares!) and then have a quick shower myself.

tamobhuuta 10-04-2020 09:08 PM

I'm watching TV then having an early night.

one_step_closer 10-04-2020 09:10 PM

An hour of weeding sounds like torture. Pizza is a good reward.

I might watch that Gordon, Gino, and Fred thing for some very easy and lighthearted viewing.

nonperson 10-04-2020 09:13 PM

Not all of that time was weeding actually, I finished sawing down a shrub first. It was quite comfy sitting on the edge of the lawn pulling the weeds out.

Is that a cooking show?

one_step_closer 10-04-2020 09:14 PM

I think they're going on a road trip. I've been told they act like little boys and prank each other.

nonperson 10-04-2020 09:19 PM

Ohhh I see. I can imagine that actually. Does sound like lighthearted entertainment. =)

I'm going to put Red Dwarf on, I think.

Cacoethes 10-04-2020 09:22 PM

Thanks np

Well done on the weeding
Knew you could do it!

That sounds like a fun show lindsay
Hope you enjoy!

Red Dwarf is hilarious

tamobhuuta 10-04-2020 09:31 PM

I've only seen a little bit of Red Dwarf but I did enjoy it.

nonperson 10-04-2020 09:49 PM

The earlier series are the best. There's a brand new feature length episode on Dave.

My pizza did something weird in the oven! Two of the edges flopped down between the bars of the oven shelf, like a sort of Dali style pizza!

Cacoethes 10-04-2020 09:51 PM

I knew that it was on but didn't get to watch it unfortunately
I'll have to watch it when I get home

How very odd!

nonperson 10-04-2020 10:04 PM

It's on UKTV Play if you have an account there. Could watch it on your phone maybe?

I haven't seen it yet. Catching up on the last two series first.

And yeah never seen a pizza do anything like that before! I think the problem was that the stuffed crust unrolled itself somehow. Still tasty though. =)

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 12:32 AM

I don't have an account but I can set one up!
I'll see if I can get it on the ipad tomorrow

Glad it was still tasty!

nonperson 11-04-2020 10:50 AM

I think they've got all the old episodes on there too. And Taskmaster which you should watch if you haven't before!

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 11:23 AM

Morning np. Up to much today?

chinahorse 11-04-2020 11:25 AM

Morning guys :-)

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 11:29 AM

Hi china, how are you?

chinahorse 11-04-2020 11:35 AM

Not great. And theres a huge bee in the surgery I'm in.

nonperson 11-04-2020 11:38 AM

Hey Lillie and Tamo. =)

It's meant to be 25 degrees here today so I may stay inside until later. Trying to decide whether to do an online Harry Potter pub quiz this afternoon or not. And should get off my bum and do some yoga soon.

What about you both?

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 11:49 AM

Oh no, bee!!!

It's meant to be warm here too. I don't have any plans.

nonperson 11-04-2020 11:58 AM

Can you waft the bee out? =/

chinahorse 11-04-2020 11:59 AM

I tried np with a broom bit it's not cooperative.

nonperson 11-04-2020 12:01 PM

Hmm... glass and paper?

one_step_closer 11-04-2020 12:16 PM

Morning everyone. It's dull and drizzly here at the moment.

I have no bee chasing away advice.

chinahorse 11-04-2020 12:26 PM

It might eat me np. Its the biggest queen bee I've ever seen.

Its bright sunshine and warm here. Wish it was grey and drizzly!

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 12:30 PM

I like the sunshine but when I went in the garden just now I had to stay in the shade.

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 12:47 PM

I love taskmaster. Makes me proper lol!

Very warm and sunny here too
Luckily we have 2 courtyards that are open all the time so I can go and sit outside whenever

I called my nanny up this morning
It's her 80th birthday and she's stuck inside alone
She hasn't left the house in over a month

nonperson 11-04-2020 01:44 PM

Hope you got the bee out by now, Lillie? It won't eat you, I promise! I had a giganormous one in my house the other day too, probably was a queen... I wafted it out with a magazine.

You definitely need to watch Taskmaster then Beckie. Everyone needs more lols at the moment. =)

Happy birthday to your nanny! I hope your phone call cheered her up.

It was cloudy here this morning but the sun's out now.

Does anyone fancy a Harry Potter quiz this afternoon? Same one I did 2 weeks ago. Questions are streamed live on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNL...MV-BOGEiL4hHA/ but you have to sign up for "tickets" to get the answer sheet I think, here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/3pm-t...s-101978394122

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 02:05 PM

I should definitely watch more taskmaster
I haven't seen any of the latest series so need to catch up!

Thank you! She said the call did cheer her up.
She will be getting many, many phone calls today I imagine! She has a ton of friends
I was the first to call though
Just wish I could have sent flowers like I usually do

Would that be possible to do on a phone?

nonperson 11-04-2020 02:10 PM

It says you need two devices (one to watch on and one to answer on) but I think you could do it on one as long as the youtube sound would play in the background (it turns off on my phone if I switch to another app). Or you could just watch the questions and answer them in your head? =)

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 02:16 PM

Ah I can't do it then
YouTube won't play in the background unfortunately
It really should do by now!
I still might watch it though

nonperson 11-04-2020 02:20 PM

I think if you pay for youtube then you can, it's annoying.

It'll be a good watch anyway. The guy last time was clearly not a Harry Potter fan and couldn't pronounce anything properly. =P And then following the chat conversation was funny as everyone was getting irate and telling him when he'd asked a question and gave us all wrong answers to choose from.

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 02:22 PM

Ugh. I'm not paying for bloody YouTube!

Haha! Sounds entertaining!

one_step_closer 11-04-2020 02:30 PM

Suns out now!

I am rubbish at all quizzes.

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 02:51 PM

It's so hot now!

I'm not bad at quizzes generally
They just did one here but I didn't take part

not_so_insig 11-04-2020 03:03 PM

I am boiling. My kitties are going mad both running around the flat at like 100 mph.

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 04:08 PM

It's 24 apparently
And the heating is still on here
Apparently it is all year round

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 04:17 PM


Cacoethes 11-04-2020 04:22 PM


chinahorse 11-04-2020 04:46 PM

That's way too warm!

I'm so bored. We've had one phone call all day and that was at 9am.

tamobhuuta 11-04-2020 05:18 PM

How long till you get to go home?

one_step_closer 11-04-2020 05:22 PM

That sounds like a very boring day.

What's everyone else been up to?

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 06:18 PM

That sounds very boring Lillie!

I have also had a boring day.
Not much going on here
How about you lindsay?

one_step_closer 11-04-2020 07:00 PM

I just had some housework to do and general nothing muchness.

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 07:04 PM

Boring day for you too then!

chinahorse 11-04-2020 08:05 PM

I am home.

What everyone had for dinner then?

nonperson 11-04-2020 08:29 PM

Nothing yet. Should do the baked salmon I was going to do the other day but didn't.

What are you having/what have you had?

Cacoethes 11-04-2020 08:32 PM

My brother's girlfriend has just dyed his hair and beard green out of boredom
