I have real trouble spelling calendar, I never know if it's the a after the l and the e after d. Lucky there is autocorrect.

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 04:58 PM

It is a tricky word to spell tbh!
Thank goodness for autocorrect. Especially helpful when you're drunk XD

one_step_closer 01-12-2022 05:12 PM

From what I've seen from drunken messages it isn't always accurate! :laugh:

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 05:19 PM

Not always! But it definitely helps a lot!

one_step_closer 01-12-2022 05:22 PM

From experience? What are you up to this evening?

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 05:24 PM

My drunken posts/texts are at least readable with autocorrect! It would just be jumbled letters otherwise!

nonperson 01-12-2022 08:21 PM

Vicar of Dibley quote...

Geraldine: Now then, Alice, tell me. Exactly how many chocolate advent calendars is the maximum a greedy person should have?

Alice: I don't know. I would have thought thirty.


Cacoethes 01-12-2022 08:43 PM

Love vicar of dibley!

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 09:42 PM

Zurg, if you read this, I've just come across an fb page called 'bunnies are ars*holes' (no * in the group name!)
You should put bun on there XD

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 08:14 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 10:16 AM

Morning, Beckie. How are you today?

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 10:35 AM

Bit annoyed because jas was meant to be coming to mine today but plans were changed last minute!
So i now have nothing to do today

How are you?

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 10:41 AM

That's a shame. Can you have a rest day? I know you don't like not doing much though. Just watch some TV or something?

I'm just feeling unwell due to Covid. Glad I can't somehow pass it through the screen to affect internet peoples! I don't have to isolate from you all.

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 10:44 AM

I'm going to go to the retail park I think!
See if I can find an outfit for the funeral. And i need to top up gas and electric.
Work have a Christmas market on today so I may pop up there too!
But i need to wait for mum to send me some money first!

That sucks :(
Is this the first time you've had covid?
At least the isolating rules aren't so strict now!

not_so_insig 02-12-2022 11:52 AM

Hello all. I am going wild swimming later on today. Already ate my advent chocolate for the day. The postman has been today so they're not on strike today.

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 12:32 PM

I hope you have a successful day, Beckie. You always find something to keep you occupied.

Yeah, this is the first time I've had Covid. The advice here just says to stay in until you feel well. I wouldn't have known I had covid if I hadn't had spare tests from before. I was at first mainly light-headed and dizzy and didn't think that was a symptom but tested just in case. Now you have to buy the tests. I think it says not to bother with the tests any more but how are you going to know if you have covid or not?

Enjoy your swim when you go, Dawn. I don't know how you deal with the freezing water. The next strike is on the 9th I think. I haven't seen any posties round here today. What picture did you have on your chocolate?

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 12:52 PM

I have to! Would go mental just watching TV all day!

I don't think it really matters so much anymore.
If you're ill, you're ill. Doesn't matter what it's called!
People at work have come in with covid

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 02:05 PM

Hmm. I know there's not the big hype about covid any more but I wouldn't want to pass it on to vulnerable people.

How's your day going?

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 02:15 PM

I know. Tbf they weren't allowed in the kitchen
And taking that much time off work would result in severe financial hardship! If it's between coming to work a bit ill and losing your house/car/not being able to eat etc. I'd probably choose work!

Couldn't find a funeral outfit.
You wouldn't think it would be so hard to find a black dress!

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 02:18 PM

We're having some really hard times in the world right now.

Were you just looking for a dress? Could you wear a blouse and trousers?

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 02:41 PM

We are indeed

I looked at most things but there really wasn't anything i liked.
It's all sparkly party wear at the moment!
Found one nice dress in River Island but it was 50!!!

tamobhuuta 02-12-2022 03:55 PM

That's a bit steep.

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 04:04 PM

I did find a nice dress on boohoo.com for less than 7 though! So that's a win! Next day delivery.

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 04:45 PM

That was lucky, next day delivery too. :thumbup:

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 04:49 PM

Just hope it looks ok!

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 04:53 PM

Fingers crossed. It's funny seeing some things people buy online that are nothing like they showed on the site or are tiny things instead of normal size. I'm terrible for not understanding measurements but I've not had any real disasters with it so far.

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 04:55 PM

Yes i love those posts!
Mostly from Wish. Lol
I rarely look at measurements. I do look at reviews though and they usually give clues!

one_step_closer 02-12-2022 05:02 PM

Yeah. I prefer reviews that also include photos so you can have a bit more of an idea of how things look IRL.

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 05:21 PM

Yes! Those are always helpful!
At least for the price, it won't be the end of the world if it doesn't fit!

tamobhuuta 02-12-2022 05:56 PM

Hi peoples! I'm starving, waiting for my star of a mum to bring me burger king.

Cacoethes 02-12-2022 06:29 PM


Beats my dinner of asda essentials cheese and tomato pasta! XD
Though it is really nice tbf
And only 90p!

not_so_insig 02-12-2022 06:51 PM

Hello all. I didnt go swimming in the end as the person I go with was unwell. But I had an unexpected parcel and amazon. My mum was there so had to sneak my amazon parcel away from my mum as would only get an lecture.

tamobhuuta 02-12-2022 07:48 PM

Can I ask what the parcels were?

not_so_insig 02-12-2022 08:24 PM

A postage box was one of them. I dont want to say what the other is on a public forum (don't worry it's nothing illegal or immoral). Just that I dont want it mentioned on Facebook and I have some rylers on there.

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 08:35 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 03-12-2022 09:44 AM

Morning Beckie.

It's cold here and it snowed while i was fetching parcels and doing some grocery shopping. My fingers have yet to defrost in spite of gloves.

How are you?

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 09:49 AM

Oh nooo!
It is pretty cold!
Pouring down with rain here!

I'm ok!

tamobhuuta 03-12-2022 10:21 AM

Hi guys. According to my phone it's 6 here but feels like 3.

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 11:08 AM

6 here as well!
Just put the heating on. Mainly for the guinea pigs tbh!

not_so_insig 03-12-2022 11:45 AM

4 degrees here according to Google (my phone doesn't show my village but the next one). Plus alexa agrees with me.

nonperson 03-12-2022 12:53 PM

Afternoon all.

BBC weather says it's 7 degrees in my closest town.

one_step_closer 03-12-2022 01:06 PM

It's supposedly 5 degrees here and dropping with time. All I know is my house is freezing and I'm trying to stay warm with a blanket and a cat. I had to go and collect my prescription today because they don't deliver on Saturdays. I just had to stand outside and they passed it out to me but I felt worried being out while I'm still unwell. My frickin trousers keep falling down too, they're drawstring ones and I really should get ones you can use a belt with but it's hard to find one with actual pockets and enough pockets that I need.

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 01:06 PM

Saying 7 here now too!

Just got an 8kg box of hay delivered but nowhere to put it!

What a pain lindsay!
Do you have a hot water bottle?
Mine really helps!

one_step_closer 03-12-2022 01:11 PM

Just put the hay in the middle of your living room like it's a table or a decorative thing.

I do have a hot water bottle but can't move to get it right now. It's the top half of me that's getting cold.

What has everyone been getting up to?

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 01:22 PM

Haha! Could do!

Ah i see.
Have you got the heating on?

nonperson 03-12-2022 01:27 PM

I think it's acceptable to move a cat if you're not warm enough!

Get some long sleeved t-shirts/thermals and layer up under a jumper and a blanket.

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 01:32 PM

The electric throws are supposed to be good too!

one_step_closer 03-12-2022 01:34 PM

I don't have the heating on. I'm wearing long sleeves under a jumper but at night I wear long sleeved PJs with 2 jumpers and my dressing gown.

I have an electric throw but worry that Crookshanks will chew through the wires.

I might need some thermals.

How are you all keeping warm?

tamobhuuta 03-12-2022 01:37 PM

I'm wearing an oodie.

Cacoethes 03-12-2022 01:40 PM

I just have a t shirt and jumper on. And a hot water bottle. I have the heating on for short bursts!
