It was really good!

Yeah he's the only one I know as well!

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:41 PM

I recognise Chris Ramsey for some reason and Judi Love was on Strictly this year but I don't remember her from that.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:44 PM

I literally have no clue who they are!
But it will be good anyway because it's taskmaster!

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:05 PM

Definitely. =) When does it start?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 08:08 PM

March 2022.
So aaaggeess away :'(

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:28 PM

That is ages. 2022 seems like a weird number. Only just got used to 2021.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 08:31 PM

I'm still in 2020!

nonperson 28-11-2021 08:53 PM

2020 and 2021 seem to have been combined into one very long year tbh.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 09:04 PM

Yeah exactly
And now masks again!
Tbh I never stopped wearing a mask in shops or on public transport but bit scary that it's all becoming a thing again!

nonperson 28-11-2021 09:11 PM

Yeah. I've not stopped wearing a mask either and we've had to at work as well.

So many people weren't wearing masks on the tube the other weekend, despite all the constant reminders about it. I wonder how many people my "close contact" did manage to infect with their covid. I think it was probably the mask that saved me from getting it.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 09:27 PM

We don't have to at work which is weird.
And the new rules exclude pubs and restaurants?
It's very odd.

Yeah on the bus yesterday literally no one was wearing a mask! It's only the old people that seem to

not_so_insig 28-11-2021 10:22 PM

It's been compulsory for ages to wear a mask in shops and public transport in Wales. But I have noticed youngsters don't bother wearing masks on buses.

nonperson 29-11-2021 11:13 AM

No one's said it yet so I'm gonna...


tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 11:22 AM

Here too! How are you?

nonperson 29-11-2021 11:23 AM

Cold. =P


Cacoethes 29-11-2021 11:37 AM

I was beaten to it!

And yes! It is ****ing freezing!!!
I put the heating on before I even got out of bed! (Thank you, fancy wifi heating!)

How are you guys?

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 12:01 PM

I'm ok. My godmother can't visit because her arm is still too sore to drive. We're going to phone instead. And I really need a shower.

Anyone else got plans?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 12:08 PM

That's a shame

I have to take the bike to halfords to be repaired
About a 25 minute walk which isn't too bad

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 01:23 PM

Can you cycle back or do you have to leave it there?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 01:27 PM

It's an easy fix so that'll probably be able to do it in 2 seconds
It's just the handlebars don't line up with the wheel.
And I think something is off with the chain too.
I'm still not going to ride it back though. I'm too nervous.
A friend who is a bikeability instructor is going to help me build my confidence

tamobhuuta 29-11-2021 02:47 PM

That's good. I never learned to ride a bike.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 03:29 PM

how be people?

I am 99% sure it's the same termperature ouside as inside my house today... until about an hour ago could literally see my breath. I technically have stuff to do but even I am finding it too cold to focus :laugh:

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 03:31 PM

I rode the bike half of the way back!
Had palpitations the whole time!

Oh no Hazel!
It is very cold today

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 03:53 PM

Well done for doing that Beckie, hopefully you can build up to more time on your bike.

It is very cold and I can't use blankets because Crookshanks either pulls out the threads or he steals it as soon as I stand up. I'm ok for now, not moving around the house just sitting in a corner on my couch with a jumper on. Also it's hard to do things with a blanket and you have to expose your hands to type.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 03:57 PM

I think I might light the fire... been putting it off as we are almost out of coal, but screw it my fingers are actually blue and my blanket seemingly does nothing

also yay for fear facing by riding the bike! Just build back up slowly, you'll get there

buy Crookshankes their own mini blanket? :P

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 04:00 PM

Sounds like very good reasons to light the fire. Will you be able to get more coal soon?

Crookshanks had his own mini everything but he likes to sleep on my lap whether I have a blanket or not. Right now he's upstairs on his donut bed.

shadow-light 29-11-2021 04:04 PM

universal credit goes into my account of wednesday so I should be able to maybe get some then. Though to be honest probably won't be able to get any until the weekend because it involves leaving the house :sigh: might see if I can get a friend to bring me some on wednesday if I send them the money... I have several important zoom meetings on Thursday so rather not be slowly freezing during them

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 04:19 PM

Thanks guys

I hope you manage to get some coal Hazel!

Have you got the heating on lindsay?

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 04:40 PM

I hope you can get enough coal to keep you going for a while Hazel.

I don't have the heating on but I do now have a snoozing cat on my lap.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 04:42 PM

That'll warm you up!

one_step_closer 29-11-2021 07:06 PM

I've had the heating on and then off again once there was less of a chill. Cat has abandoned me. How is everyones evening going?

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 07:10 PM

I did the same.

Not bad. Just watching QI

nonperson 29-11-2021 07:32 PM

Evening. I finally called around and found somewhere with insulin so am just waiting to collect a couple of vials. Not enough but better than nothing.

Trying to be calm and keep breathing but it's a different place and parking was awful and it's dark and ugh.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 07:34 PM

Well done np!
I was starting to worry about you!

Sorry it's so stressful. Will you be home soon?

nonperson 29-11-2021 08:05 PM

Thanks. I'm home. =)

Never thought I'd be so pleased to be putting insulin in my fridge. I've got to pick the rest up tomorrow.

I also finally booked my flu jab too.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 08:10 PM

Good good!

So glad you got hold of some!

Yay! Look at you! Getting **** done!

nonperson 29-11-2021 08:27 PM

I know. So unlike me.

It's made me feel all peculiar though x.x

Like I've overfilled my quota for the day and now my body is having an adverse reaction!

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 08:36 PM

Yeah I know the feeling!
Can you rest for the evening?

nonperson 29-11-2021 09:10 PM

Yep, nothing else to do now.

I fell asleep watching Dr Strange last night so might put the rest of that on.

Well done on fixing and riding your bike again, btw. =)

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 09:11 PM

Sounds good!
I love Dr strange.

Thanks :)

nonperson 29-11-2021 09:30 PM

It's not a film I've paid too much attention to really. And I don't know why.

not_so_insig 30-11-2021 10:54 AM

Morning all! Looks like I beat Beckie to the thread this morning.

nonperson 30-11-2021 11:04 AM

She's slacking!

It's positively tropical outside today =D

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 11:14 AM

Oh nooo!
I'm losing my touch :tongue2:

It is much warmer today!

How are we all?

tamobhuuta 30-11-2021 11:32 AM

Hi everyone :) anyone got plans for today?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 11:38 AM

Hey tamo

No plans for me
How about you?

nonperson 30-11-2021 12:12 PM

Just work for me today.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 12:28 PM

Fun times!

tamobhuuta 30-11-2021 12:30 PM

I'm going to the doctor's later, just for routine obs.

I forget, what do you do np?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 12:45 PM

Hope it goes ok tamo
