Cacoethes 06-12-2021 07:41 PM

I've just put my heating on

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 08:06 PM

So have I Beckie. I had an email before from sse saying that they wanted meter readings so I submitted them and I am in credit with both gas and electricity so I thought **** it I can afford not to freeze.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 08:21 PM

I'm on a pre payment meter thing which I prefer to paying monthly

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 08:23 PM

I cba going out to get credit all the time. Plus it's more expensive than paying direct debit. My paranoia won't let me have a smart meter.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 08:27 PM

Each to their own!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:11 PM

Sometimes there's no choice though. My electricity is direct debit and my "gas" is on a meter.

I've been out to buy Christmas trees this evening. =)

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 09:17 PM

Oooh exciting!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:29 PM

Well they weren't for me but it was fun anyway.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 09:32 PM

Who were they for?

It is fun shopping for trees though!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:57 PM

For my friend and her sister. We get them free at work so I donated mine.

We were the only ones there and there was a fire.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:01 PM

Oh that's good!

Oooh that sounds lovely!

nonperson 06-12-2021 10:06 PM

And Mariah Carey came on the radio as I parked up. Pure Christmas magic... :blink:

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:12 PM

Not Mariah carey!!!

nonperson 06-12-2021 10:19 PM

I knowww.

I also heard a godawful cover of a Christmas song this afternoon on the radio. So bad that I can't even remember the song or the band now...

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:38 PM

There are some really bad covers out there!

We have them at work mixed in with the normal music :ermm:

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 10:34 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 11:42 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 11:44 AM

I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 11:46 AM

I am ok. Another drooley night and a cold morning. Do you have any plans for today?

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:02 PM

It is very cold
No plans for me
How about you?

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 12:09 PM

I'm not sure. I should go for a blood test but that will take a lot of effort.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:11 PM

It is a lot of effort.
But probably something important

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 12:43 PM

The nurse person said it would probably be fine but it's part of the yearly obs. At least it's a short journey.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:44 PM

Ah yeah.
Short journey is ok though

one_step_closer 07-12-2021 04:07 PM

Has no one been hit by storm Barra? It's high winds and thick cold snow blowing in it here. I had to walk for a while to the post office delivery office and my face kept getting hit by chunky snowflakes.

not_so_insig 07-12-2021 04:17 PM

It was very wet and windy before but has calmed down a lot now. I got wet waiting for the bus before.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 05:22 PM

It's very windy and rainy here too!

nonperson 07-12-2021 06:54 PM

The wind hasn't been as bad here as everyone was making it sound. Lots of heavy rain though.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 06:56 PM

I hope the wind dies down before we have to put the bins out tomorrow night!
Otherwise there will be rubbish and bins all over the place!

not_so_insig 07-12-2021 07:43 PM

I hope so too Beckie as I live in a windy spot. I recently lost a paper bag so don't want to lose another. It's ordinary bin day this week so fingers crossed that they'll collect it as I really struggle with the wheelie bin.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 07:49 PM

It's recycling for us
So if it tips over it'll be loose recycling everywhere!

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 08:33 PM

We decided to put off my blood test because of the weather.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 08:40 PM

Don't blame you!

not_so_insig 08-12-2021 08:55 AM

Morning all! I am up early because I have a boiler check today. Unfortunately they gave an all day slot so idk what time they're coming. It sounds very windy outside so I am glad of an excuse not to go out.

not_so_insig 08-12-2021 10:17 AM

I can officially confirm that it's wet and windy here outside. Unfortunately I have to go out at some point to do the bins so fingers crossed it's better then.

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 10:18 AM

Hate the all day slot thing!

It doesn't seem too bad here

not_so_insig 08-12-2021 11:55 AM

It's even worse than yesterday Beckie.

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 12:05 PM

Maybe it'll hit me when I leave the house!

tamobhuuta 08-12-2021 12:06 PM

Hi insig and Cacoethes. Weather is better here.

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 12:07 PM

Hi tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 08-12-2021 12:10 PM

I'm ok ish. I'm going to try a blood test again. I need to shower too but I don't know if I have the energy.

not_so_insig 08-12-2021 03:46 PM

I have had my boiler checked. It's ok.

Are you working today Beckie?

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 05:27 PM

Yes I was working but I got home early because it was so quiet!

Glad your boiler is ok!

one_step_closer 08-12-2021 05:28 PM

How has everyones day been? It's been much calmer weather wise here than it was yesterday.

one_step_closer 08-12-2021 05:29 PM


Cacoethes 08-12-2021 05:38 PM

The weather is definitely calmer today!
The bins are out and so far standing steady!

one_step_closer 08-12-2021 06:00 PM

I hope everyones bins stay standing. It's horrible when your bin blows over and flings out your rubbish for all to see and for you to pick up off the street. My plastics bin blew over recently but it wasn't a bin day so it was in my garden so was easier to put all the rubbish back in it.

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 06:06 PM

It's absolutely awful!
Where my bins live is quite sheltered from the wind so I don't have that issue

nonperson 08-12-2021 07:37 PM

This storm has been pretty uneventful here really. A bit windy but nothing concerning.

I'm feeling kind of smug for the first time ever that I have deviated from RYL bin day and got moved to a Monday collection when it wasn't windy!

Cacoethes 08-12-2021 07:38 PM

You are lucky np!

I'm sure I heard a bin falling over noise earlier but I haven't looked because I don't want to be responsible for it!

How are you anyway?
