Sorry Lindsay. I didn't see your ninja post before I ran off. How thick is the snow?

Haha, yes that is the height of entertainment round here it seems!

Also I have been to the shop and now I have more waiting around to do. Might nap. =/

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 03:09 PM

Afternoon all!

maii 30-12-2023 04:17 PM

Morning All


Hi, Ahimsa, how are you?

one_step_closer 30-12-2023 04:36 PM

The snow wasn't that thick and it has now been raining for ages.

What has everyone been up to?

maii 30-12-2023 04:44 PM

Snow .. Cool!


Not up to much, I guess.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 05:48 PM

Good afternoon everyone. I think I've finished my triptych! I will show it to this evening's visitor for feedback but I'm pleased with it.

Oo snow! We've got rain and wind.

Your car wash sounds very disconcerting Pi.

not_so_insig 30-12-2023 05:49 PM

Hello all.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 05:50 PM

Hi insig how are you?

not_so_insig 30-12-2023 05:54 PM

I was ok but my dad had a go at me so now I am not so good.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 05:57 PM

I'm sorry, that's not good. Hugs if wanted.

maii 30-12-2023 06:09 PM

Sorry, insig:(

maii 30-12-2023 06:09 PM

How are you, Tomo?

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 06:15 PM

Hi maii I am ok thanks, dinner in a minute. What about you?

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 06:28 PM

Ooh what are you having?

I'm exhausted, I didn't wake up til after 1 but I've tidied and vacuumed half my room, been to Asda, put away a load of washing and done another one, and changed the bedding and made a fruit salad.

I'm thinking 5 more things to tick off my list and then a hot bath!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 06:55 PM

Lentil shepherds pie with vegetables, I didn't like the flavour so I was glad of the vegetables. Did i just say that?!

Well done for jobs.

one_step_closer 30-12-2023 06:56 PM

Well done with finishing your painting, Tamo, that was quick!

Sorry your Dad has made you feel bad, Dawn. I hope you can find a way to put that to the side.

After all that a hot bath will be needed, Beth!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 06:57 PM

I've been planning it for ages, even on the wood I've made changes.

Pi.R^2 30-12-2023 07:05 PM

Evening all! Tamo, are you vegetarian? If so, what's the food offering like on your ward? I've heard horror stories for vegans :P

Beth, are you familiar with James Acaster's 'no more jobs' sketch?

I'm not, is it a short one? He really irritates me - I'm sure he's lovely but he makes me irrationally annoyed every time I hear his voice!

(I will send you a jpg via messenger to show you how obsessed I am with James Acaster, hence my outrage!)

Luckily for you, I cannot even find the clip so cannot demand you watch it! But basically he talks about how life is just jobs jobs jobs and then at bedtime you declare "no more jobs" until morning when you do jobs again until you die and then it's permanently no more jobs. And I thought of that with you nailing your list of jobs!

not_so_insig 30-12-2023 07:33 PM

Thanks everyone. Sorry I disappeared I was having my tea.

Pi.R^2 30-12-2023 07:39 PM

^but did you see Beth not liking the love of my life??

not_so_insig 30-12-2023 07:44 PM

Yes I did Jenna. I must admit that I don't know who he is.

long road 30-12-2023 08:02 PM

Oh no Dawn! now Jenna will send you James Acaster videos incessantly!

Hi Everyone, had a bit of a rough day from both a physical and mental perspective so not been about.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 08:04 PM

The selection for veggies isn't too bad, I'm just a picky eater.

How did you know...

Sorry you've had a rough day. Hope you've been taking good care of yourself!

I'm a super-picky eater too - I'd be an absolute nightmare :P

You are just that predictable :tongue2:

Doing my best to look after myself, been resting a lot.

Pi.R^2 30-12-2023 08:22 PM

Haha!

Well done for looking after yourself as best you can. I hope tomorrow will be easier.

Also come back Beth!! You're allowed to not like my favourite comedian! Worried I've scared you off =S

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 08:54 PM

Waiting for meds time again!

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 09:02 PM

I'm here, sorry I went to do tasks. I've redone all the bedding and done some batch cooking.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 09:03 PM

That's very efficient.

I am in the queue. John the orangutan is keeping me company.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 09:10 PM

Also in exciting news, we're getting a kitten :)

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 09:23 PM

Oh my goodness that is exciting news!! When?!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 09:28 PM

Tomorrow! I'm worried he won't like me when we eventually meet because I won't be there when he arrives.

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 09:47 PM

Don't worry about that, honestly. I got my cats over lockdown and they met no one for 8 months. Now when my dad comes to fix something, one of them is on his knee within minutes

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 09:50 PM

Aw that is reassuring.

Pi.R^2 30-12-2023 09:58 PM

Aww, a kitten! How exciting! Have you seen a jpg of it yet?

tamobhuuta 30-12-2023 09:59 PM

Yes, he's adorable. A British short hair, with a touch of bengal apparently.

Ahimsa 30-12-2023 10:01 PM

Ahh my boy is half bengal!

He sounds super cute, does he have a name yet?

I'm going to have a bath and go to bed, I need to dye my hair tomorrow (remember I was going to do it weeks ago, and then every day last week? - yeah its not done)

Pi.R^2 30-12-2023 10:40 PM

Excited for you tamo! First for you to see lots of jpgs and mpgs of him settling in and then for you to meet him properly :)

Night Beth!

Ahimsa 31-12-2023 02:41 AM

Yeahhhhh I decided to turn up at my friends flat at 9:30 (I know the door code for the building) as I knew she needed cheering up so I've just left hers!

Ahimsa 31-12-2023 03:44 AM

I've decided to make brownies.

also yes its almost 3am we don't talk about that.

Cacoethes 31-12-2023 05:43 AM

Hellooo everyone!

Popping in because it's 5:42am and L is still asleep.
I want coffee but it's a studio apartment and i don't want to wake her up with kettle noises.

Yesterday it was 17c and so sunny!
It feels like the end of summer instead of December!

Hope everyone is doing ok and HAPPY NEW YEAR in advance! :-D

long road 31-12-2023 11:00 AM

Morning!

How were 3am brownies Beth?

Sounds like you are having fun Beckie!

Zurg 31-12-2023 11:25 AM

Morning everyone.
Jen, at least you and i have managed to show up at a decent time!!! ;-)
What the bloody hell are you guys doing up all night/way too early in the morning???!!!?!
Well, i had an awful night with very little sleep. So staying up late tonight will be interesting…. I hope my mum has stocked up on the coffee. I need to bring a million things with me as Mr. Bun-bun is coming too. He doesn't like fireworks and i refuse to leave him home alone <3
Are you going to see some awesome places today, Beckie???

long road 31-12-2023 11:38 AM

That because we are quality personages Zurg!

Oh no to very little sleep! Hope there is much coffee in your future. I am drinking a cup right now.

So sweet you won't leave Findus to be scared alone <3

I am trying to gauge what capactI have for doing things today. And then what I want to do with that capacity..Not sure if I will stay up to see the new year in yet.
