Does anyone watch location location location? It's in my neck of the woods today.

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 09:11 PM

Ah ok!
Maybe I'd be able to tolerate it then

chinahorse 02-10-2019 09:21 PM

I'll report back what it's like tomorrow beckie.

It's weird seeing where you live on tv.

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 10:02 PM

Yes please let me know!

That's cool Dawn

chinahorse 02-10-2019 10:29 PM

Relocated to bed and I can't be bothered to sleep. I didn't know that was a thing.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 12:10 AM

That is a bit odd!

chinahorse 03-10-2019 07:13 AM

Morning. Hope you all slept well.

It's freezing! Just put my bin out and you can see your breath. Not much warmer in my house mind. But the sunrise is making the sky beautiful colours.

nonperson 03-10-2019 08:15 AM

Morning Lillie and everyone else.

It is so cold! I missed the sun rise here.

chinahorse 03-10-2019 08:23 AM

How's things np?

tamobhuuta 03-10-2019 09:47 AM

Morning np and china. It's rainy here. My plan for the day is to visit my sister and put away my washing. And harass my CPN!

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 10:21 AM

Morning, it's very cold. I've put my heating on for a tiny bit.

How are you all?

Good plans Tamo.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 10:46 AM

It is pretty cold!

Hope you have a good day guys

nonperson 03-10-2019 12:04 PM

Hey again everyone.

I've been out for a walk and now am sitting wrapped up in coats with a hot chocolate while I leave the door open to try and coax my neighbour's cat in!

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 12:16 PM

Mmm hot chocolate!

I'm actually not cold now
Even though everyone else is!

nonperson 03-10-2019 12:32 PM

Silly everyone else. Maybe they just want something to complain about. =)

What's on the telly today, Beckie?

chinahorse 03-10-2019 12:55 PM

Has the cat come in yet?

I'm having lunch hich bertie is desperately trying to steal.

nonperson 03-10-2019 12:57 PM

He's around in the garden and came about a metre into the house for food.

Oh dear. Are you eating anything he'd actually want to eat, or is it a case of he just wants it regardless of what it is?

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:01 PM

Slowly gaining his trust then.

He does like cheese but mostly just wants to eat if I am.

nonperson 03-10-2019 01:03 PM

Yeah he came trotting across the lawn quite rapidly earlier when I called him!

Ah, just being a greedy guts then. =P

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:09 PM

Awww that's cute.

Bertie is such a gobblebox!

nonperson 03-10-2019 01:11 PM

Gobblebox! Love it. =P

Geordi's a gobby box, he doesn't shut up.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 01:16 PM

Lol gobblebox!

Ah bless him

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:19 PM


Bertie is quite chatty too.

Am nomming chocolate orange mini.

nonperson 03-10-2019 01:21 PM

Ooh yum, I'm so jealous.

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:24 PM

They are tasty.

I forgot milk :-(

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 01:24 PM


Oh no Lillie!

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:28 PM

I have to go out to the Dr's at 3 so can get some then. I don't wanna go out again though. Just want to hibernate and nap.

nonperson 03-10-2019 01:29 PM

Got time to nap before you go out?

chinahorse 03-10-2019 01:34 PM

Can't nap if I set an alarm. Can never relax enough.

nonperson 03-10-2019 01:58 PM

Yeah I know what you mean.

Turns out I've also got to go out... Managed to get a very last minute appointment for a shoulder assessment and ultrasound. In a bit of a panic now...

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 02:59 PM

I'm the same

Hope it goes ok np

not_so_insig 03-10-2019 03:54 PM

Hello all. I have a sore throat but it's getting better. I went out and it was windy and cold. The wind was bitter I needed gloves but didn't have any.

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 04:18 PM

Hi everyone. My belly is saying 'feed me' yet again.

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 04:28 PM

People who use RYL on their phone: how do you put up with it being tiny and not being able to see everything that you're writing unless you zoom and scroll and stuff?

If I am admitted to hospital I'd like to try and stay about here a bit but I hate coming on here on my phone. If I can't find a way around it I might just post in this thread on the odd occasion but I likely won't be able to reply to everyone who has posted in the thread.

not_so_insig 03-10-2019 04:31 PM

It's not tiny for me Lindsay. It could be to do with my phone as I have a Samsung Galaxy s9 plus.

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 04:33 PM

Ah. I think I'm just used to a huge laptop screen so it seems tiny to me.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 04:33 PM

I always use ryl on my phone!
Doesn't bother me at all
What phone do you have?

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 04:34 PM

iPhone 7. It's annoying trying to write long things here on my phone. An actual keyboard is easier than a touch screen I think.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 05:07 PM

I've not used an actual keyboard in ages so I'm more used to the phone now I think!

not_so_insig 03-10-2019 05:08 PM

I am the same Beckie

tamobhuuta 03-10-2019 05:10 PM

Have you tried turning your phone on its side?

chinahorse 03-10-2019 05:13 PM

I use it on a really old Samsung they don't even make any more. Sometimes it's faff me about but mostly it's ok. Suppose you just get used to it?

Hope the appointment went ok np.

I got a sick note thankfully. Dr was like how do you know you were delusional- me I had a 6 year old following me called Alice that everyone ignored. Gp, ah yeah thats a bit odd. :-P

nonperson 03-10-2019 06:26 PM

I was going to suggest turning it on its side too, Tamo.

I mostly use RYL on my laptop too and find phone typing so irritating! I'm always typing a . instead of a space as well.

Appointment went ok but now I have more phone calls and a million other appointments to make. And I've been poked and prodded and had to drive too much today which has made everything more hurty. =(

Glad you got your sick note. Feel like I shouldn't laugh at your GP but when written like that it is quite funny. =P

chinahorse 03-10-2019 06:30 PM

Glad it went ok no. Another step forward. Sorry you're ouchy now though. Does a hot water bottle of anything help?

It was meant to be funny! I found it amusing anyway.

Can't decide what I want for dinner.

nonperson 03-10-2019 06:35 PM

I might take some ibuprofen, that seems to dull the ache a bit. A hot water bottle might actually be good but I don't have one here. I am going home at the weekend though and I think my mum still has my old one somewhere! Good idea, Lillie, thanks. =)

It is amusing. I like little stories written like that! Gotta laugh about these things sometimes too.

What are the options for dinner? I should also sort myself out with something too but am building myself up for another phone call first.

zombiehunter 03-10-2019 06:54 PM

1 my slipknot tickets arrived yesterday and to say i'm excited is an understatement :-D

2 the static x gig last night was awesome :-D

3 I just had a fry up for my dinner :-D

nonperson 03-10-2019 07:01 PM


I was about to ask if I could come to yours for dinner but seems I'm too late.

chinahorse 03-10-2019 07:01 PM

If you have rice and a sock you can make a temporary hot water bag np. Just think once the phone call is done you can chill.

Good good zombie.

I went for pumpkin soup and toast.

nonperson 03-10-2019 07:05 PM

I do have a rice sock somewhere actually. Made my phone call too. Think I'm ready to collapse now.... but need food first.

Ooh yum. How spicy is the soup?

one_step_closer 03-10-2019 07:19 PM

I didn't think of turning my phone on its side. :thumbup:

I'm glad your appointment went well Lillie. Soup and toast??? Did you dip the toast in the soup or have it on the side?

You've been doing so much NP. I hope that in the long term it helps.

How did you even manage to get Slipknot tickets Zombie?! My brother stayed up all night and they were sold out within minutes.
