I'll live

Fingers crossed for you lindsay

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 06:22 PM

I watched another cheesey Christmas film, I think it helped.

one_step_closer 02-12-2020 07:17 PM

Long wait in the rain for a taxi home. But we're back and Crookshanks is snoozing on my lap.

What film did you watch Tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 07:25 PM

Amazing Christmas Romance.

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 11:12 AM

Morning everyone, it's snowing here!

How are you all?

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 11:30 AM

Morning lindsay
It rained here overnight but that's it here

I'm ok. Tired but can't get back to sleep annoyingly.
I hate it when they wake me up for meds!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-12-2020 11:44 AM

No snow for us. I'm just having breakfast. No special plans for the day. Maybe today will be the day I hear from my CPN!

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 11:58 AM

Fingers crossed tamo!

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 01:42 PM

It's stopped snowing now and it's sunny but some lying snow, the rest is really deep slush.

I also hate having to get up for meds. In hospital I force myself to get up and dressed before meds so I don't have to be woken up by the staff. Have you got some Coke Zero to give you a boost?

I hope your CPN phones Tamo.

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 03:10 PM

Yes I have plenty of coke zero. Had a delivery yesterday!

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 03:28 PM

Where do you get it from?

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 03:30 PM

Or pepsi max from beelivery if I'm really desperate!

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 03:37 PM

Amazon <3 I got Easter eggs on Amazon way after easter. I've never heard of beelivery, is it a local thing?

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 03:47 PM

Amazon is great!

I'm not sure actually. It's great. They will deliver a selection of things to you within the hour!

not_so_insig 03-12-2020 05:28 PM

It's a national thing this beelivery because it delivers to me.

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 05:54 PM

I thought it was

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 06:32 PM

Sounds good, I might need to look it up.

What is everyone up to this evening?

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 06:39 PM

Watching criminal minds again!

How about you?

nonperson 04-12-2020 11:18 AM

Morning all.

If anyone needs a giggle today, just imagine me falling butt first backwards into a wheelbarrow and flailing around trying to get out again.

I'm embarrassed to say that this was not a comedy sketch and is actually a true event that happened this morning so I feel the need to share! Although I'm very glad no one saw it happen IRL. I also tipped an entire trolley of newly potted plants over at the same time. What a mess! =P

tamobhuuta 04-12-2020 11:32 AM

Oh no np!
I've been awake a while but decided to stay in bed and listen to Harry Potter.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 12:16 PM

Morning guys

That did give me a giggle np!
That's something that would happen in a cartoon!

one_step_closer 04-12-2020 12:32 PM

Lol NP! I hope the rest of your day is accident free!

Is it the audiobook you're listening to Tamo?

Hey Beckie.

nonperson 04-12-2020 12:40 PM

Glad it gave people a laugh. =P

Hey Beckie.

Yes, half blood prince

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 12:54 PM

Hi lindsay

Have any of you got any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 04-12-2020 01:02 PM

I'm having a shower...

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 01:14 PM

That's a good plan tamo!

I'll probably have a shower too

tamobhuuta 04-12-2020 01:43 PM

I'm all clean!

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 01:46 PM

Yay well done!

I'll shower after dinner
I like to shower in the evening

one_step_closer 04-12-2020 02:53 PM

I washed my hair yesterday so won't be having a shower today. Well done to everyone who has managed/will manage a shower.

Did anyone have snow today? There's loads here but my neighbour said it's going to rain and wash it all away.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2020 03:14 PM

No snow here :( we almost never get snow.

I was showering later but it's too dark then so I have to shower earlier.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 04:12 PM

No snow here either!
We never get snow. Just rain

Fair enough tamo

one_step_closer 04-12-2020 05:48 PM

It's very rainy and windy here now. I never watch the weather report, I just take whatever comes so I'm sometimes surprised to see what the weather is doing.

What's everyone having for dinner?

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 05:55 PM

Me too lindsay

Not sure what's for dinner yet. It's in 5 minutes
How about you?

one_step_closer 04-12-2020 05:56 PM

Can you not smell it and try to guess?!

I'm going to have a baked potato with cheese. I wanted to have beans and cheese but I have no beans.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 06:20 PM

It all smells the same!
It was beef casserole with mash and veg. And rice pudding for dessert. It filled a hole

Beans and cheese is the optimum baked potato topping!
But just cheese is still good!

one_step_closer 04-12-2020 06:32 PM

I used the frozen baked potato that you put in the microwave and it came out mostly cold :( I ate some of it anyway. I always have that problem, should stop buying them.

Sounds an ok dinner for you, except the veg and rice pudding.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 06:43 PM

That's annoying!

Yeah it was fine.

yoyogirl 04-12-2020 06:54 PM

Finding things a right struggle

nonperson 04-12-2020 07:14 PM

Sorry to hear that, yoyo.

I'm fecking freezing.

nonperson 04-12-2020 07:24 PM

Random question: does anyone know where can I buy a nice empty gift box online? All I'm finding are packs of a million and I just want one!

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 07:38 PM

Have you tried paperchase or similar?
I assume you've already tried amazon?

nonperson 04-12-2020 07:44 PM

Yeah, tried Amazon but it's all multi packs.

Hadn't thought of looking at Paperchase online! That would be my normal go-to shop for these sorts of things but the highstreet is a big no at the moment.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 07:49 PM

Yeah don't blame you.
Hopefully they'll have something online!

nonperson 04-12-2020 07:52 PM

I could get a couple of nice cards for my nans too. Paperchase was a good shout.

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 08:05 PM

Sounds good!


nonperson 04-12-2020 08:06 PM

Dunno why I didn't think that they'd have an online shop. =P

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 08:10 PM

EVERYWHERE has an online shop these days!

nonperson 04-12-2020 08:13 PM


Clearly can't function this new online world. ;-)

Cacoethes 04-12-2020 10:55 PM

I do waaay too much online shopping!
Mainly amazon....

My phone weather app is warning of snow and ice. It does this every year and no snow ever appears!
