I have decided, despite feeling pretty rubbish, to get 10 things done before bed tonight. Please support me in my endeavours. If I get them all done, I am treating myself to a trip to York tomorrow (I only live a half hour drive from there) and a new ring from my favourite shop there.

1) 1 load of washing - to be washed, dried and put away.
2) 1 form filled in from my pile
3) 1 floor mopped
4) Clean the toilet and sink
5) Measure the doors (I'm meant to be looking to replace them because most of them are broken)
6) Get the tiles out of the car (I found 3 boxes of tiles for free on a reuse Facebook page)
7) Put the ladder back in the garage, it's been propped up against the wall for a week waiting for me to put it away
8) Clean the window ledge in my room
9) Do some washing up
10) Empty the kitchen bin.

A fellow Northerner!!!
Also go go go, you've got this! Are you doing it in order?

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 04:38 PM

Crookshanks usually ignores the important things that need done when he's on my lap! I hope you can do your roleplaying and enjoy it, Jen.

I hope the rest was helpful, Dawn and you find something to entertain yourself with.

That doesn't surprise me about Beckie, she's a chatterbox! *hands trophy to Beckie*

You can do it, Ahimsa. Keep focusing on the trip to York and new ring. I'm rooting for you!

Oh soz, practically a southerner actually. I'm just south of Newcastle :P

Well that makes no sense, I am a quiet little mouse.

Who's the first??
I'll fight them!

Nah. It's because i have no life :hehe:

long road 07-04-2023 04:59 PM

I am listening to Green Day on my headphones. I made it to the sofa. Not sure about outside as it's 5pm already and roleplaying starts at 7:30pm.

It's is sad the uni student thread posts be gone.

Ooh throwback! I used to love Green Day! What song is your favourite?

Why are the uni thread posts gone?

Cacoethes 07-04-2023 05:03 PM

My favourite is usually American idiot or Boulevard of Broken Dreams but currently I am blasting Basket Case on repeat as it fits how I am feeling.

I assume they got deleted but I don't know the full story. I used to post in there back in the day

I am super jealous!

My friends I used to go to gigs with saw them without me years ago but I have never seen them live!

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 05:16 PM

Guys, be proud of me!

That's 5 (and a half) of my 10 things done!

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 05:16 PM

I'm guessing some of the uni thread posts fell off the edge of RYL?

You have a wonderful RYL life, Beckie! Isn't that enough? :laugh:

I used to listen to Green Day too. Do they still record new stuff?

Thank you cat, I understand your message completely.

I thought she made a very good and eloquent point. She is only 4!

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 05:17 PM

Ninja Jen and Ahimsa.

You're really powering through your tasks, Ahimsa. Well done.

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 05:18 PM

Do your cats ever Google search for things?

Well, they tend to just walk over the keyboard because they have no boundaries.

long road 07-04-2023 05:20 PM

As long as the cats don't work out how to order things from the internet. Then all your money will go on treats and toys!

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 05:20 PM

Crookshanks used to be like that but not so much any more. He has walked over my keyboard when I was on Google and it came up with strange searches.

one_step_closer 07-04-2023 05:21 PM

I think there's a joke where a parrot ordered things from Amazon through Alexa although it might have been real life.

If I remind you that hugs and replying to introductions counts as a post, that might give you a clue??
You are just over 17 000 posts away =S

Yeah, for Very Southern people I say my city name, then when they look confused I say 'near Newcastle' before giving up and just saying that it's near Scotland!

Also great job on the to do list!

Even people in my city have never heard of my village!!

Pi.R^2 07-04-2023 06:45 PM

Aww!

Right, no one talk to Jen if she comes to the thread, she’s supposed to be napping! She just tricked me into talking to her for forty minutes because I was on my favourite topic of conversation: The Recent History Of RYL

I am bad with names. Who is Jen please?

long road 07-04-2023 06:55 PM

Laughs maniacally

I am Jen.

I did meditate though, napping was not occurring

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 07:18 PM

Pi.R^2 07-04-2023 08:39 PM

Zurg 07-04-2023 08:44 PM

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 08:56 PM

long road 07-04-2023 09:48 PM

Also well done ahimsa! Lots of to do listing!

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 09:55 PM

I got everything done guys!!!

Pi.R^2 07-04-2023 10:06 PM

Good job! Standing ovation!!

Pi.R^2 07-04-2023 10:08 PM

Anecdote: one time in Wetherspoons an unnamed RYL member in a wheelchair told another unnamed member that she’d give her a standing ovation if she ate a sachet of mustard and she did and the standing ovation was given (with some effort!) and now standing ovations are the highest honour you can achieve

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 10:17 PM

Oh wow!!

The cats are all in a snugglepuddle! <3

long road 07-04-2023 10:36 PM

Congratulations a snuggle puddle sounds cosy. I want a snuggle puddle.

Ahimsa 07-04-2023 11:37 PM

I'm going to make a list of tasks to do tomorrow (aside from my charity shopping trip of course!)

If I post it here, it's some accountability.

1) Sort the pile of letters on the desk
2) Take the glass jars and bottles to the recycling
3) Buy a new kitchen bin
4) Dust the shelf unit
5) Clear out the fridge
6) Do the next load of washing
7) Go through 1 drawer and organise it
8) Drop the spare car key at my parents
9) Organise the cupboard under the sink
10) Organise the tea cupboard

Pi.R^2 08-04-2023 10:06 AM

Oh they all sound like No Fun Jobs!! Except maybe item 1, I’d do that. The rest, no thanks.
Good luck with your list today!

Ahimsa 08-04-2023 10:26 AM

They are official NO FUN jobs, thats why I haven't been doing them and they now need to be done.

tamobhuuta 08-04-2023 11:41 AM

Good morning peoples x

long road 08-04-2023 01:09 PM

Afternoon! How ls everyone?

I had a rough night with my FND and didn't sleep until 7am. But despite physical stuff feeling surprisingly chipper.

How was the streamed good Friday service Tamo?

not_so_insig 08-04-2023 01:43 PM

Hello all. I am feeling freezing today. I was the same yesterday when I was in my flat. Have had to turn central heating on and make myself a coffee.
