It's not really the wearing of masks that's the issue, Dawn. Other than the self isolation rules we pretty much have no guidance to follow. Everything is reopening and it's down to businesses to decide on capacities and face masks and stuff. And a this despite cases and deaths going up. Masks not being compulsory any more is only a small part of that.

And good luck, Luna!

There seems to be a small breeze and some cloud coming over now.

[Luna] 19-07-2021 01:40 PM

Thank you. Luckily I got in the queue when it was still in the air conditioned post office rather than standing outside - always a win.

Back home with my army of fans lol

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 01:42 PM

That's good Luna! Well done!

I've just booked a ticket to see the croods 2 on Thursday (to avoid my letting agent who is doing a house inspection)

[Luna] 19-07-2021 01:44 PM

Ah nice, that sounds like a nice little trip out. I miss the cinema. You gonna get popcorn?

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 01:46 PM

Yep! I've missed it too.
And yes I will be getting popcorn! :-D

[Luna] 19-07-2021 01:48 PM

Yaay, can't beat cinema popcorn. Yum!

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 01:56 PM

There is no popcorn like cinema popcorn!

nonperson 19-07-2021 03:00 PM

Sweet or salty though?

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 03:05 PM


nonperson 19-07-2021 03:06 PM

It has to be. =)

Tesco's finest popcorn is pretty good. I got a mango and chilli (I think?) one from there once. So sweet!

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 03:24 PM

Oooh that sounds interesting!

nonperson 19-07-2021 05:07 PM

I don't think they do it any more. It was mango and Chilli with coconut bits.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 05:17 PM

That sounds yummy!

nonperson 19-07-2021 05:36 PM

It really really was! So sweet, the chilli level was just right. Easily ate the entire bag in one go =P

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 05:42 PM

Well how else do you eat popcorn?! :tongue2:

nonperson 19-07-2021 05:52 PM

Exactly! But they still like to put a portion size on the bag, like 12 servings or something.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 06:02 PM

It's ridiculous really
They KNOW we're going to eat the entire thing so why mess about with portion sizes?!
It's like on chocolate bars and they say 1 serving = 3 pieces. Please!

not_so_insig 19-07-2021 06:50 PM

I hate it when they say something is share size. I ain't sharing my chocolate with nobody.

Cacoethes 19-07-2021 06:55 PM

Exactly Dawn!

[Luna] 19-07-2021 10:27 PM

Amen to that Dawn!!

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 10:10 AM

Morning everyone!
Another hot one today. Ugh!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 10:23 AM

Morning Beckie, it sure is!
What are your plans today? is it today you're off to the cinema?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 10:35 AM

My only plans were asda and post my brother's birthday cards and I've done that!
No that's Thursday.

What are you up to today Luna?

[Luna] 20-07-2021 10:50 AM

Not much. Trying to work through the things I didn't do yesterday but the heat is making me feel very unmotivated.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 10:56 AM

The heat is awful!
All you can really do in this heat is collapse in front of a fan!

tamobhuuta 20-07-2021 11:15 AM

Maxi dress day again.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 11:20 AM

Good plan tamo!

My phone is warning of thunderstorms.
I really hope we get one!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 11:30 AM

Definitely going to see how productive I can be on the sofa lying in front of the fan haha

[Luna] 20-07-2021 11:31 AM

Fingers crossed for some angry clouds

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 11:31 AM

Haha! Don't blame you!

Yess definitely need some angry clouds.
The air needs to clear!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 01:31 PM

My brain is glitching today. Cannot focus at all.
How are you guys getting on?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 01:36 PM

That sucks
I hope you're taking lots of breaks!.

I'm just applying for more jobs
Though I'm running out of options!

[Luna] 20-07-2021 02:21 PM

Urgh job application take so long to fill out. What sort of things are you applying for?

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 02:29 PM

They really do!
I'm applying for everything! Apart from care jobs because criminal record.
So mainly shops and restaurants.
I really really want to work!

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 04:13 PM

I have had my tesco shopping order. One 1 substitution which was acceptable. Took me an hour to put everything away because of the heat.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 04:13 PM

Tesco didn't have my ice cream yesterday.
I was displeased

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 04:19 PM

Did they substitute it Beckie? They had mine.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 04:30 PM


not_so_insig 20-07-2021 04:40 PM

Oh that sucks. You definitely need ice cream in this weather.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 04:43 PM

I might get some tomorrow when I've finished cleaning

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 04:47 PM

Good plan! From asda I take it?

I have ordered my 10 years SI free present from amazon. Should come tomorrow. Plus some rechargeable batteries for my house phone.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 04:49 PM


What have you ordered?

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 04:53 PM

An easel. It comes with canvases and art supplies. Didnt particularly want the art supplies but the easels were just as expensive without the art supplies than with it. I thought I might as well get the stuff if I am gonna buy it.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 04:55 PM


not_so_insig 20-07-2021 05:22 PM

I am very fussy when it comes to paint so it might end up going to the charity shop if they're low quality. Lorraine is very fussy too when it comes to art stuff.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 05:25 PM

Fair enough

nonperson 20-07-2021 05:32 PM

Anyone remember that really cheap school paint in the squeezy bottles? It was a weird chalky texture!

not_so_insig 20-07-2021 05:36 PM

Ah yes I do.

Cacoethes 20-07-2021 05:40 PM

I always preferred the pva glue that you could peel off your hands. Hours of fun!
