How're you today?

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 09:56 AM

Not bad ta, just woke up. Theres only so long the cats will let me have a lie in before they want fed ha.

How are you?

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 10:03 AM

Morning everyone

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 10:04 AM

Hey Beckie

How are you today?

nonperson 25-03-2020 10:09 AM

Morning Beckie.

Cats are demanding aren't they. =) Mine has food out all the time so I don't have that problem but he demands attention all the time instead.

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 10:20 AM

Yeah, but I love them all the same :). My youngest one (he’s nearly 2) sat on my lap while I was doing a video chat with my tutor, hehe.

How old is your cat np? What’s his name?

nonperson 25-03-2020 10:26 AM

He is 7 now! His name is Geordi, like the character from Star Trek, heh.

chinahorse 25-03-2020 10:26 AM

Oooo kitty talk! I love kitty talk :)

How many do you have? Whats their names? (what should I call you TWW?)

tamobhuuta 25-03-2020 10:32 AM

Good morning everyone. I slept badly :( but I got a letter from DWP saying my benefits are increasing by like, two pounds!

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 10:43 AM

I’m Alison :)

I have 3. Titchy and Junior are 10 and 9 respectively and belonged to my flatmate before I moved in with her, and we got Sooty together in 2018 so he’s bearly 2 :)

tamobhuuta 25-03-2020 10:52 AM

Aw cute. I think our cat loves being the only pet, he gets all the attention.

nonperson 25-03-2020 11:06 AM

Titchy, what a name. =P

2 years old is a good age, they're grown up but still act like kittens sometimes.

I also think my cat likes getting all the attention, but I think he would enjoy catty company for when I'm at work usually.

chinahorse 25-03-2020 11:20 AM

How did the older two react to the new baby Alison?

Same np. And my new landlord has had me sign a thing that I'm only allowed bertie.

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 11:36 AM

Actually, really well. You’ve to separate them for a few days and keep them in separate rooms, so V (flatmate) had junior and titchy in with her and I had soot in with me. Within a couple of hours they were both wanting to meet him, and now they’re inseparable. Soot still likes to come in with me at night time, and will get jealous if one of the other two come in to ‘his room with his mummy’ but thats only at night time :)

How old is Bertie? They can definitely be good company for each other, but yeah hard to find somewhere that will take more than one.

chinahorse 25-03-2020 11:39 AM

Aww am glad they all get along :-)

Bertie is 1 year and 5 months.

chinahorse 25-03-2020 12:53 PM

We are sunbathing outside in the yard. Tied bertie to the bbq leg and brought his climbing tower, water and litter tray out too. Hes still laying on the floor.

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 12:58 PM

Sunbathing sounds good!

chinahorse 25-03-2020 01:02 PM

Its lovely. :-)

Bertie just freaked out over a woodhouse

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 01:55 PM

Bless him

chinahorse 25-03-2020 02:05 PM

We have them in the house sometimes. Hes seen them before!

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 02:36 PM

Cats are weird

So are dogs.
Mum's dogs will bark at literally nothing and once a fox ran right across one of their fields close to the house and absolutely nothing from the dogs.

nonperson 25-03-2020 02:42 PM

Next door's dogs keep barking at me today. =/

chinahorse 25-03-2020 03:46 PM

How annoying np!

I've very mildly started to sunburn shave come in and am watching tv.

Also have eaten half the house. Isolation will make me fatter than buddah.

nonperson 25-03-2020 03:59 PM

I was outside for a couple of hours this morning but think I escaped getting burnt! Was dosing off on the sofa just now and then my boss rang me for a catch up!

I also can't stop eating at the moment. =/ *hides biscuits*

chinahorse 25-03-2020 04:21 PM

How rude of your boss!!

I'm in bed and probably going to nap now. I'm not sleeping at all well at night.

nonperson 25-03-2020 04:26 PM

Best to grab a nap whenever you can then. =)

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 04:31 PM

How very rude of your boss np!

Know what you mean about food. I don't have any snacks but as soon as they put biscuits out, I'm there!

Have a nice nap Lillie

nonperson 25-03-2020 04:33 PM

Totally rude.

What sort of biscuits do they put out for you?

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 05:05 PM

That is rude np!

We went to Asdas. Took 2 hours because of the queue to get in, then people were getting frustrated with me because I was being slow on the self scan (am autistic and can’t use them). Now sat at my desk with my uni work, how fun!

nonperson 25-03-2020 06:02 PM

Shopping is never a fun experience... Hope you managed to find everything you needed and some treats too. =)

tamobhuuta 25-03-2020 06:14 PM

I hate supermarket shopping, I could never go by myself.

Cacoethes 25-03-2020 06:19 PM

The biscuits vary. They are packs of 3 so we have jammie dodger type ones, custard creams, bourbons, digestives and shortbread type ones.

Shopping sounds awful at the moment
I hope I get out of here soon but I'm still not looking forward to having to go out to get essentials which I will definitely need!

nonperson 25-03-2020 06:23 PM

Mmm shortbread biscuits are yum.

I don't know if the panic buying has reduced much yet or not but supermarkets are doing more to try and get things on the shelves and to stay on the shelves now. Although there are still no delivery slots.

Shirayuki 25-03-2020 06:26 PM

I don't think the panic shopping phase is over quite yet np, although Costco has started refusing returns of water and toilet/paper towels because people were hording them-

which means there are now toilet rolls (sometimes) and water ^^

How are you guys?

nonperson 25-03-2020 06:27 PM

Hey Shira.

I'm trying to decide whether to go for a walk or not. =/

How're you?

Shirayuki 25-03-2020 06:28 PM

I want to go on a walk too but its raining out

I'm alive, you?

nonperson 25-03-2020 06:32 PM

I'm still trying to decide.

Plus it's getting dark and I now have a cat on my lap so I guess the decision is made.

Shirayuki 25-03-2020 06:37 PM

Guess the cat helped quite a lot ^^

nonperson 25-03-2020 06:42 PM

He's gone out now though!

Shirayuki 25-03-2020 06:43 PM

Well, now you have to debate on whether or not you want to go out again!


chinahorse 25-03-2020 06:48 PM

NAh too dark to go out now np.

My cat is doing the wall of death around the house.

nonperson 25-03-2020 07:04 PM

Definitely too dark. I don't even have paths or street lights to guide me here.

Uh oh, trouble ahead?

Shirayuki 25-03-2020 07:06 PM

oh no, what's wrong?

The Worst Witch 25-03-2020 07:56 PM

I did manage to find everything, I got easter eggs! I was worried I wouldn’t since they’ll be needed in a few weeks but I managed to get one for V, one each for my friends little boys (2 and 9 respectively) and one for my dad.

Oh no, the wail of death! Poor Bertie!

nonperson 26-03-2020 09:05 AM

Mm, Easter Eggs.

Morning all.

chinahorse 26-03-2020 09:12 AM

I want an Easter egg!!


one_step_closer 26-03-2020 09:29 AM

I had a box of chocolates. I feel a bit sick.

nonperson 26-03-2020 09:31 AM

Oh dear. Easter eggs make me feel a bit sick too, they're so sweet.

nonperson 26-03-2020 09:32 AM

Also... Lillie:


one_step_closer 26-03-2020 09:34 AM

Happy Birthday Lillie! That is a magnificent sign there NP.
