I never get my washing dried on the same day despite having a washer/dryer combined. The washing comes out damp and hot and there is no option to just put the dryer on again. I put my clothes on a clothes horse and they are dry by the time I do the next washing.

tamobhuuta 30-05-2024 07:00 PM

Some of my washing is up on the bannisters and a doorway.

tamobhuuta 31-05-2024 09:51 AM

Good morning all.

one_step_closer 31-05-2024 12:49 PM

Afternoon Tamo, how are you today?

tamobhuuta 31-05-2024 02:10 PM

I'm ok. Mass wasn't till 12 so had a leisurely morning. I watched doctor who while I had lunch. How are you? Up to much?

one_step_closer 31-05-2024 06:17 PM

The day is going by and RYL has been extra quiet. We need people!

I went to the chemist and local shop and washed my hair and hoovered. Finished a book I was reading too. Oh and I finally tidied some of my bedroom floor which was covered in cardboard, blankets, and soft toys mostly. I sound like a teenager!

tamobhuuta 31-05-2024 07:01 PM

Lol, well done!

not_so_insig 31-05-2024 07:11 PM

Hello all. I have been busy. I had to deal with the window people again.

tamobhuuta 31-05-2024 07:49 PM

How did it go?

not_so_insig 31-05-2024 08:16 PM

It was ok. I only has to deal with them for 5 min.

tamobhuuta 01-06-2024 10:02 AM

Good morning.

one_step_closer 01-06-2024 01:15 PM

Afternoon Tamo, how is your day going so far?

long road 01-06-2024 01:41 PM

Been thinking of you all. Sorry not been around much.

Just ate some bourbon biscuits. Will leave a plate here for you to share

not_so_insig 01-06-2024 02:05 PM

Afternoon all.

Oooh biccies *grabs some*

one_step_closer 01-06-2024 04:00 PM

No need to apologise, Jen. Thanks for the biscuits!

Have you been up to anything exciting, Dawn?

tamobhuuta 01-06-2024 04:02 PM

Yum yum! I am ok, been to the Signed Mass. I thought about staying for a cup of tea but wasn't brave enough. How are you all?

one_step_closer 01-06-2024 04:11 PM

It's ok to leave if when you don't feel up to things, Tamo. It's good that you can see when you're not up to things and not force yourself into them. Did you have some tea when you got home?

I'm tired and have a headache. Feel like I can't occupy myself. Had this month's worth full of drama this morning when my neighbour accidentally set fire to one of his bushes. No more please!

tamobhuuta 01-06-2024 04:14 PM

That's a big drama! Did it all get sorted safely? I had a cup of tea and watched the new casualty. I recommend TV for passing the day!

one_step_closer 01-06-2024 04:16 PM

Yeah it eventually went out. Luckily it was a bush they are thinking of digging up anyway not a pretty rose bush or something. I still have the most recent Casualty to watch. Will watch it this evening. I don't like watching TV through the day.

tamobhuuta 01-06-2024 06:15 PM

I try to do other things but I get drawn in sometimes.

one_step_closer 01-06-2024 06:21 PM

TV is a good distraction and there are some interesting shows to watch.

I've just been looking at cars online. I miss driving and want to drive again but there's no point getting one because I wouldn't go many places and I'm an anxious driver plus getting an MOT etc puts the fear in me.

tamobhuuta 01-06-2024 07:44 PM

I'm scared of driving too. For me there's one worry (among others) that I'll spasm and crash the car.

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 10:59 AM

Morning all

long road 02-06-2024 11:20 AM

Morning Tamo! How is your day shaping up?

I am heading out to the garden shortly to drink my coffee in the sunshine

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 11:41 AM

That's nice. I'm ok, having a cup of tea with my dad. I'm hoping to work on a painting for fathers day.

Zurg 02-06-2024 11:48 AM

Hi all :)
I'm terrible at randomly disappearing. Sometimes my head goes into overdrive and sometimes one of the alters takes control and we generally have a conflict of interests going on….. I hope you're all as well as you can be <3
I'll try to be more persistently present

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 11:49 AM

Hi Zurg, good to see you. Sorry you've been having a rough time.

Zurg 02-06-2024 11:55 AM

Hi Tamo.

I should be used to it by now but i still really suck at dealing with life's difficulties. I suppose all i can do is to keep trying though.
How is the weather at your end??? It's been insanely warm and humid here. Both me and the zoo are unable to deal with that!!!

one_step_closer 02-06-2024 12:05 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Enjoy your coffee and sunshine, Jen.

I'll have to commission you to paint me something, Tamo! What are you going to paint for your Dad?

Hi Kat, so good to see you! Sorry you've been having a hard time. Are you doing any better now?

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 12:13 PM

It's a beautiful blue sky here Zurg.

I think I'm going to do Mary and baby Jesus. I asked him who his favourite saint was and he said Santa Maria so I think an Italian theme?

one_step_closer 02-06-2024 12:35 PM

Sounds interesting, Tamo. How long does it usually take you to get a painting finished?

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 01:41 PM

A couple of hours every day for a few days. Got to decide on lay out, do sketches, different styles of painting, get faces right! It rarely finishes how it started out, I'm not a very consistent artist!

one_step_closer 02-06-2024 04:31 PM

Well as long as you enjoy the process.

How is your day going so far?

tamobhuuta 02-06-2024 07:47 PM

Good thanks, how has your day been?

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 09:15 AM

Morning all. How are we?

Zurg 03-06-2024 09:46 AM

Morning Tamo.
I feel sort of bad so trying to look after myself today.
How are you???

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 10:13 AM

Good idea, what do you think you'll do?

I'm good thanks. Got up at 8 to wash my hair and put meds in boxes. Going to Mass at 12.

one_step_closer 03-06-2024 12:42 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Take very good care of yourself, Kat. We are here if you need to chat.

Hope you enjoy Mass, Tamo.

Zurg 03-06-2024 12:46 PM

Well, i attempted a wee nap but all the birdies are very, very happy and very loud today so it was an impossible mission. I've mainly just been a couch potatoe so far. Going to the shop in a wee while for some minor grocery shopping. I am planning to get some cake :D
Findus is a loaf bun today. He is all puffed up on the carpet. He did get very excited a bit ago when we emptied and tidied his litter box :)

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 01:34 PM

Aw what a cutie. What cake do you think you'll get? I love chocolate but it's not my favourite cake...

not_so_insig 03-06-2024 02:44 PM

Hello all. I have been wild swimming today. Spent a long time in the water.

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 03:09 PM

Did you have fun insig? What's the water like this time of year?

not_so_insig 03-06-2024 03:51 PM

It's not too bad this time of year temperature wise. Certainly a lot warmer than January. I enjoyed myself.

one_step_closer 03-06-2024 04:41 PM

Cake is very good medicine, Kat.

What is your favourite cake then, Tamo?

Are there scary little fishes in the lake where you swim, Dawn?

not_so_insig 03-06-2024 04:51 PM

Yes there's fishes in the lake. I saw some dragon flies today too.

one_step_closer 03-06-2024 06:05 PM

I don't think I'd like to be in the water with fish and bugs!

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 06:14 PM

The fishes might nibble you!
I'm not sure what my favourite cake is. I quite like coffeecake. What do you like?

one_step_closer 03-06-2024 06:18 PM

I like most cakes but maybe not coffee cake and not fruity ones except for things like fruit cheesecakes.

tamobhuuta 03-06-2024 08:07 PM

Cheesecake with coulis!
