I've returned things to the petrol station before to be picked up, that was quite useful and easy instead of needing to go to the post office.

Or just gather all the useless stuff up once in a while and take it to a charity shop or for recycling.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:19 PM

That sounds easy enough
I'm not sure where my nearest returns point is. If we even have one!

I just burned my finger and it really hurts!

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:21 PM

It's different for every place you order from, I think.

Oh no! Run it under cold water. =/

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:29 PM

That makes sense.
Actually I think I may have returned something before at a tiny newsagents about a 30 min walk away.

I did. It's throbbing still!
Making tea is dangerous
I somehow manged to submerge my entire middle finger in a cup of tea. Don't ask me how!!

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:33 PM

Eek, can you wrap it in ice? i don't really know the first aid procedure for a finger dipped in tea!

I just watched half of Salad Fingers "Spoons" and had to stop. x.X

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:36 PM

It's slowly getting better.
I think I'll live!
I have hiccups again :plain:

Salad Fingers is incredibly creepy.
I was traumatised for years after my babysitter showed it to me and my siblings one evening

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:39 PM

I hiccuped while drinking said tea and it went all down my front
I should not have made tea

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:41 PM

Yeah... maybe something cooler would have been a better choice. =/

I've not watched this for probably 10 years. And I'm sitting with my hands half over my eyes, squeaking with terror.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:42 PM

It really would have been
I think I just need to give up and go to bed!

You never grow out of fear of salad fingers

nonperson 14-08-2020 08:44 PM

Aw no need to give up entirely!

I thought I might have built up some resilience to it but I am wrong.

Cacoethes 14-08-2020 08:50 PM

I'll be going to bed soon anyway because my meds knock me out and I'm not as hyper anymore!

There is no resilience. Only fear.

nonperson 14-08-2020 09:02 PM

Aw ok.

That is true...

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 09:01 AM

Morning guys
My alarm woke me up in the middle of a good dream :plain:

Np, I hope you managed to sleep after your salad fingers ordeal!

tamobhuuta 15-08-2020 09:38 AM

Morning Cacoethes, morning everyone.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 09:48 AM

Morning tamo

My carer hasnt turned up yet.
I got up early for nothing!

tamobhuuta 15-08-2020 10:00 AM

Grrr how frustrating, I hope you don't have to wait much longer..

Any plans for today?

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 10:42 AM

She turned up and said she was early so I guess weekend times are different!

I'm going swimming today :-D
How about you?

tamobhuuta 15-08-2020 11:02 AM

I'm already feeling anxious so i will try to relax snd stay occupied.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 11:13 AM

That's a good plan

It's so cold!

tamobhuuta 15-08-2020 11:37 AM

Yeah I am loving the cooler weather.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 11:41 AM

Me too!
I can't stand the heat!

nonperson 15-08-2020 03:21 PM

No salad fingers nightmares, Beckie!

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 03:25 PM

Good good!

Been up to much today?

nonperson 15-08-2020 03:32 PM

No I'm still in bed and woke up half an hour ago. =/

Have you been swimming?

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 03:44 PM

You must have needed the sleep!!

Yes I have!
And got the booking thing sorted (again!) So I won't have to pay separately again

nonperson 15-08-2020 03:47 PM

I did need it but didn't properly sleep until 10am.

That's good! It's so irritating when the booking system is faulty.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 03:50 PM

Oh that's annoying

Ikr! It's the second time its happened to me (but for different reasons) so it's like the universe doesn't want me to go swimming!

nonperson 15-08-2020 04:30 PM

Well you've shown the universe who's boss. =)

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 04:38 PM

I have indeed! :p
With a little help from an awesome receptionist!

I've just watched beauty and the beast (new one) and now watching The Meg. I love shark films!
What are you up to?

nonperson 15-08-2020 04:41 PM

There are a handful of awesome helpful receptionists out there. You're lucky to find one of them.

I haven't seen either of those. I'm watching Doctor Who. =)

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 04:50 PM

I am very lucky!
She couldn't sort it out while I was there but kept at it and called me to say she's sorted it and gave me the new password. I am very grateful!

Doctor who is always a good shout!
Which doctor?

nonperson 15-08-2020 04:59 PM

David Tennant. It's the last episode of the second series with Rose... *sob* =/

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 05:04 PM

He's the best Doctor.
Awww that episode is so sad!

nonperson 15-08-2020 05:07 PM

I agree. It gets me every time. =(

I think this series was new Doctor Who at its peak.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 05:08 PM

I agree with you!

nonperson 15-08-2020 05:17 PM

I do like the series with Donna though. =P

I got half way through the latest Jodie Whittaker series but lost steam. Should pick it up again though, I was sort of enjoying it.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 05:19 PM

I didn't like Donna that much tbh!

I haven't watched much of the latest series. Wasn't really enjoying it

nonperson 15-08-2020 05:25 PM

I think she had a good "story" and sad at the end.

Yeah it's been hard to get into. I'll watch it eventually but not in any rush.

I can't believe it's nearly 5:30pm already... My day's all screwed up. x.x

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 05:31 PM

Yeah I keep meaning to watch it

I know! Usually the days go so slowly for me but today hasn't!

nonperson 15-08-2020 05:38 PM

Maybe because you were busy swimming? Breaks up the day a bit.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 06:02 PM

Probably!
It's good to keep busy

nonperson 15-08-2020 06:27 PM

It is.

My day has been so unbusy! Been up 3.5 hours and already want to go back to bed again, lol.

Cacoethes 15-08-2020 06:37 PM

Hopefully you'll still sleep well tonight!

nonperson 16-08-2020 08:50 AM

Much better sleep last night. =)

How's everyone this morning?

tamobhuuta 16-08-2020 09:47 AM

Hi np, i am ok thanks, slept well. How about you?

Cacoethes 16-08-2020 09:50 AM

That's good np :)

I'm ok thanks.
Also slept well!

tamobhuuta 16-08-2020 09:54 AM

Who has plans? My big sister is coming round later.

Cacoethes 16-08-2020 10:50 AM

no plans apart from doing some washing

Hope you have a good time with your sister

tamobhuuta 16-08-2020 11:18 AM

That reminds me, i need to do washing.

Cacoethes 16-08-2020 11:29 AM

I hate doing washing.
I'm always scared the washing machine is going to blow up!
It's an irrational fear of mine
