I am watching Gino's win your wish list. There's too much talking for my liking. That's what I hate about modern game shows too much talking and not enough action.

FabulousMike 04-08-2018 11:14 PM

Definitely need more action!

nonperson 04-08-2018 11:17 PM

I miss Pointless being on tv at the moment. I hope it comes back on soon.

FabulousMike 04-08-2018 11:18 PM

Pointless was far too pointless.

not_so_insig 04-08-2018 11:19 PM

That's why I fast forward about half the crystal maze. Too much talking.

nonperson 04-08-2018 11:20 PM

Nooo, Pointless was fantastic.

Normal game shows are boring and so right/wrong... but Pointless actually makes you think.

not_so_insig 04-08-2018 11:21 PM

Yes I miss pointless too. Rick edwards is very wooden on impossible

nonperson 04-08-2018 11:27 PM

I haven't watched it and find Rick Edwards a bit wooden all the time!

not_so_insig 04-08-2018 11:34 PM

I keep on falling asleep most of the time I watch Impossible.

chinahorse 05-08-2018 08:48 AM

Morning :)

one_step_closer 05-08-2018 12:07 PM

Morning and afternoon Lillie and everyone else.

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 12:12 PM

Hi Lindsay

one_step_closer 05-08-2018 12:16 PM

Hi Dawn, how are you doing?

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 12:18 PM

I am ok thanks.

one_step_closer 05-08-2018 12:19 PM

Are you getting up to much today?

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 12:23 PM

Nope. Usually I go out on a Sunday but my dad has gone to a big car sales place in Cheshire with my brother. So my mum and I decided to stay in instead of going out.

I have also seen my first red kite of the year and 2 butterflies.

chinahorse 05-08-2018 12:41 PM

Nature spotting Dawn?

nonperson 05-08-2018 12:46 PM

I love Red Kites, they're my favourite bird. There's a big population of them around here.

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 12:53 PM

Hello everyone

nonperson 05-08-2018 12:56 PM

Hi Beckie. How's it going?

chinahorse 05-08-2018 12:57 PM

Hey guys. How are you both? Up to much?

nonperson 05-08-2018 12:59 PM

Working again today. Just as hot and scorchy but it's been a bit busier at least so not as bored! This afternoon's going to be hard to get through though.

How are you, Lillie?

chinahorse 05-08-2018 01:04 PM

Ugh, sounds horrible and sweaty NP! I hope it goes quickly for you.

I'm very low. Am trying to motivate myself to leave the house with chocolate biscuits. Have done loads of house work though and I even blow dried my hair with the fan on as well :P

What do I get my mums partner for her birthday? Shes a barber, 46ish, like dogs, motorbikes, camping in her landrover and dvds. Does not do girly or bath stuff.

nonperson 05-08-2018 01:06 PM

Chocolate biscuits are a great motivator. =)

Erm, get her..... a pot shaped like a dog so that she can keep all her scissors and stuff in! Or some camping accessories? I'm sure there are nifty gadgets available for campers.

chinahorse 05-08-2018 01:24 PM

I just so much cba to go to town :(

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 01:26 PM

Im ok thanks guys

I don't know how you cope np!
I nearly died just walking to asda!!

Sorry you're feeling low Lillie
Well done for doing stuff though!

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 01:44 PM

Since I cba making a new thread does anyone know of a decent mascara? Preferably under a tenner. I rarely wear makeup so don't know of any decent stuff. Must be waterproof. Ideally stocked on amazon and prime eligible.

nonperson 05-08-2018 01:57 PM

Sorry can’t help you there, Dawn. I’ve never worn mascara in my life!

I’m not sure how I cope either, Beckie. At least I’m just standing still rather than doing my normal job.

Buttons. 05-08-2018 01:58 PM

Tried this before Dawn: https://www.amazon.co.uk/REVLON-Ultr...rproof+mascara

Buttons. 05-08-2018 02:06 PM

Also well done on coping Np :) I'm sweating cobs here and just sat in my living room.

nonperson 05-08-2018 02:16 PM

I’ve now abandoned the gate and am now camped out under a shady tree. Further to walk but at least I’m not cooking.

Buttons. 05-08-2018 02:18 PM

Knew you would go for a Shady tree Np :P

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 02:23 PM

Shady trees are the way forward!!

Not sure on that dawn.
My criteria for mascara is just 'black' and 'cheap'!

nonperson 05-08-2018 02:23 PM

Haha! I really am that kind of dodgy person. However I’m wearing too much yellow hi-vis to be fully dodgy.

Aubergine 05-08-2018 02:29 PM

I'll have a new birchbox at home when I return! I asked for my unescorted leave and they said I have to wait until the next shift are on. I have no idea why. Rude.


How are you all?

nonperson 05-08-2018 02:34 PM

Hi Aubergine. What’s a birchbox?

I think I’ve technically abandoned my post. Oh well. Starting to get the cold shivers though... Not good.

How are you?

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 02:36 PM

Staff really don't make sense sometimes Aubergine!

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 02:37 PM

Thanks Buttons for the suggestion of mascara.

I have registered with postcrossing. Have an address in Germany to send to. Now I have to find a postcard shop in my local town. We don't get many tourism in our town. I just hope that the local tourist centre sells one preferably of the main church.

Aubergine 05-08-2018 02:38 PM

It has makeup samples in it. :)

I'm OK. Sleepy. Might nap. There's lots of napping done here.


Abandoned your post? I don't blame you! It's far too hot to be stood in the sun.

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 02:43 PM

It's not that hot here. Then again I am indoors.

nonperson 05-08-2018 02:53 PM

My phone is saying 28 degrees.

Someone just bought me an ice lolly =D

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 03:00 PM

My phone is saying 28 too

Yay ice lolly! That was nice of them!

not_so_insig 05-08-2018 03:08 PM

According to my phone it's 27 degrees.

nonperson 05-08-2018 03:14 PM

It was one of the off-duty managers. I’d be flabbergasted if a member of the public did it.

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 03:17 PM

Would be a bit random for some stranger to just give you an ice lolly!

nonperson 05-08-2018 03:18 PM

I could start charging for giving out directions and advice and ask to be paid in lollies.

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 03:23 PM

Good plan!!

nonperson 05-08-2018 03:25 PM

Except there’s hardly anyone around now. =(

Cacoethes 05-08-2018 03:39 PM

Awww
When do you get to go home?

nonperson 05-08-2018 03:42 PM

5pm. So not long now.

Someone was meant to come and give me a mid afternoon break but they’ve not turned up!
