Did you get started with things NP?

Lots of websites seem to be having issues recently. Will you be able to take the order without being able to change the delivery slot, Dawn?

Do you understand Italian Tamo?

I'm still a mess but managed to have a shower and have to clean Crookshanks' bowls and mats tonight.

nonperson 24-10-2021 06:23 PM

Virtual hugs for you, Lindsay. Well done for showering.

I also showered and lunched but have been curled up on the sofa ever since. Can't face the kitchen or cooking tonight.

one_step_closer 24-10-2021 06:29 PM


Do you have something you can eat that you don't have to make? Well done for showering and eating, both important things. Are you doing things to keep your mind busy while you're on the sofa?

nonperson 24-10-2021 06:36 PM

Yeah I've got tinned soup or frozen stuff I can stick in the oven. I'll decide later.

I've been watching the gymnastics coverage, not sure if that's been keeping my mind occupied or not really!

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 07:03 PM

Yes Lindsay I can take my original slot. I have an man coming to measure my living room for new flooring at potentially the same time as the tesco man. But the floor man said a 4 hour slot so if he turns up late then it's ok. I have a lot of shopping so normally I dump it in the hall where the flooring man has to walk. My mum is going to be there so she can deal with flooring man and if not she can help put the tesco shopping order away.

tamobhuuta 24-10-2021 07:20 PM

We've got a small community of Italians. I don't really understand so I take along my English version as well. Now I've been going a while I am picking things up.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 07:49 PM

Finally home!
It was a mental shift but we had a good team so it was stressful but not too horrendous
No one could give me a lift home though
So I walked home in the rain

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 08:10 PM

Glad you had a good team Beckie. Sorry it wasn't that great though.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 08:17 PM

Thanks Dawn
Need to shower now

Have you been up to much today?

nonperson 24-10-2021 09:09 PM

Goddamnit why am I not cut out for spicy foods...!!

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 09:12 PM

What did you have?
I can't deal with spice either!

nonperson 24-10-2021 09:14 PM

I don't know why I thought Nandos garlic sauce was mild! My sister gave me some sachets of sauce leftover from her takeaway and I thought it'd be a good idea to have with my chips... Had to dump half a jar of mayo on top to make the food palatable!

not_so_insig 24-10-2021 09:21 PM

I have only washed my hair and watched tv today Beckie. The next village where I live is on TV tonight the park at the bottom of the road might feature. The next village was on Location Location Location last year.

Cacoethes 24-10-2021 09:21 PM

Oh no!

I've just showered

That's cool dawn

nonperson 24-10-2021 09:25 PM

Don't people say cleanliness is next to godliness?

Being on TV is overrated... my recent appearance won't be deleted from iPlayer for another 10 months... >.<

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 08:34 AM

Lol np

Morning everyone!
I am up early to clean but am consuming large amounts of caffeine first

nonperson 25-10-2021 10:22 AM

The caffeine will definitely help.

I'm having to change my laundry plans as I just realised I didn't buy any detergent, whoops.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 10:49 AM

It has!

Oh no!
I bulk buy laundry pod things off amazon. I bought 2 big packs last time (when I was last in hospital about 5(?) months ago and I still have of a pack left!

nonperson 25-10-2021 11:07 AM

Ah bulk buying is wise.

I usually keep an eye out for when they're on offer so don't normally run out. Need to do a small shop later anyway so will pick some up then. I've got just enough to do what I need today anyway.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 11:11 AM

I bulk buy deodorant and hand soap too. And toilet roll!

Ah that's good!
Will you be going in the evening?

nonperson 25-10-2021 11:25 AM

I buy bulk toilet roll too, was very smug at the beginning of 2020. =)

Not sure, might try to go late afternoon because there's bits I need for dinner.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 11:29 AM

Haha! Me too

Well, it's half term so there won't be the after school rush. But maybe an after work rush.

nonperson 25-10-2021 11:38 AM

I was thinking 4:30 when everyone finishes work here and I can sneak out unnoticed (the downfall of living at work) which will hopefully be before the main work rush.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 11:51 AM

Sounds like a plan!

Just today to get through then I have 2 days off!

nonperson 25-10-2021 12:09 PM

Woohoo! Should be quieter today, right?

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 12:10 PM

It should be
But it is half term so maybe a bit busier than a usual Monday

nonperson 25-10-2021 12:47 PM

Do you get a lot of kids there?

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 02:24 PM

Afternoon everyone, seems busy here today. I hope you all have a good day.

nonperson 25-10-2021 04:21 PM

Only because I'm not at work, Lindsay. =P

Hope your day is going ok as well.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 04:23 PM

Are you getting up to much?

I hoovered, that's all.

nonperson 25-10-2021 04:28 PM

Just laundry at the moment which just involves waiting for the washing machine to finish, heh.

Should probably make a phone call as well, ugh >.<

Hoovering is important and a good task to achieve!

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 04:31 PM

Can you set a goal to make the phone call before the washing machine is finished, like a challenge to get it out of the way? I know it's hard though.

nonperson 25-10-2021 04:39 PM

I'm going to have to wait until the washing machine is finished because my kitchen/living room is open plan and it'll be too noisy to be on the phone if it starts spinning! It hasn't got long to go.

It's not super urgent to make the phone call so if I don't do it today it'll have to be next Monday and I think that will be ok.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 05:44 PM

Sounds like you've got a plan with the phone call. Do you know what you might have for dinner?

not_so_insig 25-10-2021 05:50 PM

Hello all. I had a bad night. Fortunately I have defrosted my tea last night so I dont have to worry about it.

nonperson 25-10-2021 05:58 PM

I'm going to make tagine tonight, Lindsay. =) Really should get a move on, how is it 5pm already?!

That's good you don't have to worry about tea, Dawn.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 05:58 PM

Sorry you had a bad night Dawn, I hope tonight is better.

one_step_closer 25-10-2021 05:59 PM

I don't know what tagine is.

Cacoethes 25-10-2021 07:50 PM

Hey everyone
What a day!

nonperson 25-10-2021 08:44 PM

It's like a Moroccan casserole as far as I can tell. I've never had it before.

Was it a busy one, Beckie?

not_so_insig 25-10-2021 10:20 PM

Thanks Lindsay I hope so too.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 09:05 AM

It was busy at lunchtime then calmed down then got busy again np!

Morning everyone

nonperson 26-10-2021 11:18 AM

Morning. I appear to have forgotten how cold is it outside the house.

tamobhuuta 26-10-2021 11:19 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Yesterday my big sister came round and stayed for dinner :)

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 11:58 AM

I wasn't cold when I left the house

I'm ok thanks. Just arrived for my CPA.

That sounds nice :)

How are you both?

tamobhuuta 26-10-2021 12:31 PM

I hope the CPA goes well.
My godmother is coming to see me, it's been a while because of the nightmare on the M25.

nonperson 26-10-2021 02:12 PM

Hope it's going ok, Beckie.

Best time to be on the M25 is Christmas morning, not a car in sight.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 02:27 PM

Thanks guys
It was meh

I've been on the m25 on Christmas day!
Sooo empty! But we did count 5 broken down vehicles on the way to wherever we were going!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 02:59 PM


best time to be on any road is 3am. It seem to be before all the delivery vans and HGVs are everywhwere (about 4am to 7am) but after all the night stift workers have switched over. basically everywhere is empty at 3am, roads, shops, often even the internet :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:21 PM

Very true Hazel!
