Morning all.

How are you doing today Beckie?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 09:46 AM

Morning Dawn!

I'm good thanks!

How are you?
Any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 10-07-2022 11:39 AM

Hello :) how are you?

not_so_insig 10-07-2022 12:10 PM

I am ok thanks Beckie. I am going out somewhere but dunno where yet.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 12:41 PM

Hey tamo

How are you?

Glad you're ok dawn

I've just been to a very intense exercise class and now i am going to die on the sofa for the rest of the day XD

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 02:07 PM

Just rest please, Beckie. No dying! Did you enjoy your class?

I hope you enjoy yourself wherever you go, Dawn.

How is your day going, Tamo?

It looks way too hot for me to venture out today.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 02:24 PM

I am resting, don't worry!
I did enjoy it thanks!

It is way too hot lindsay!
27 here
I'm going to change my bedsheets today but going to wait until it gets a bit cooler so i don't pass out while doing it XD

Are you having a chill day lindsay?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 02:31 PM

One app says it's 21 degrees here and the other says 23 degrees. I've already changed my bedding. Do we have another RYL day? Sundays being bedding change day? We should create one so we can all encourage each other.

I'm trying to decide whether to phone Duty or not. I probably shouldn't since things have calmed down a bit for now. They're likely to get worse soon though and I won't be able to call. I really annoy myself. Right now I'm trying to keep Crookshanks cool but he won't go upstairs where the bathroom window is open he prefers to sit on my lap downstairs where I'm not opening any windows because of the pollen.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 02:37 PM

That is an excellent idea!
Sunday seems like a good day to do it!

If you feel like you need to phone then i say go for it!
I'm sure they'd rather you call now than call when things are at their very worst.

Have you got those cooling mat things you could keep downstairs?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 02:42 PM

I tried them before and he didn't like it. He's off my lap and on the floor now. I think he knows how to keep himself cool anyway.

What are you getting up to in your rest mode?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 02:48 PM

I'm sure if he was uncomfortable he would let you know

Just watching criminal minds and considering going to asda. But probably won't because #reasons

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 05:52 PM

I hope you're doing what's best for you.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 05:53 PM

Hard to know what that is sometimes

I have changed bed sheets, put washing away and showered!
Now i can chill until bedtime

It is still far too hot

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 05:55 PM

It is hard to know sometimes.

You've done lots, definitely time to chill. Is it cool enough in your house?

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 05:57 PM

Yeah my house stays quite cool luckily!

How about yours?

one_step_closer 10-07-2022 06:02 PM

Yeah mine is cool enough. It's just a wooden house with external insulation. When they put the insulation on they said I'd notice it was less cold in the winter but I've never noticed, it just feels as cold as usual.

Cacoethes 10-07-2022 06:05 PM

I have no idea how this house is insulated. The house isn't old so it's probably fairly energy efficient

nonperson 10-07-2022 09:31 PM

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 07:47 AM

Haha! Yes i saw that was on!

Morning everyone!

nonperson 11-07-2022 11:08 AM

I tuned in just at that moment! =P

Feck it's hot already. Don't go outside guys.

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 11:15 AM

Morning all.

I was going to town but the heat put me off. I do not cope well with the heat. Last thing I want to do is to collapse and end up in hospital. I am currently sitting in front of the fan. Fortunately the only thing that's time critical is getting something from the sorting office.

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 11:23 AM

Sadly i have no choice but to be out! Just arrived at work
At least we have air con inside but the walk here was unpleasant!

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 12:26 PM

Be very careful in this heat Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 12:32 PM

I will. I'm going to make sure to stay hydrated!

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 01:21 PM

Good plan.

one_step_closer 11-07-2022 02:48 PM

Everyone look after yourselves.

I forced myself to go to Tesco (about 25 mins there and 25 mins back) and it was horrible. Plus I decided against a recipe I was going to try so I didn't even get much. Gave them some books for their charity book shelves though.

That image of Mrs Doubtfire is making me want cream cakes!

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 02:51 PM

Tamobhuuta there isn't any Doctors this week or next. I think it's finished for the summer.

tamobhuuta 11-07-2022 02:53 PM

I know! Life is hard!

one_step_closer 11-07-2022 02:59 PM

Would you re-watch the ones that are online or do you have something else you can watch?

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 03:13 PM

It is 31c!!!
It's nice inside though with the air con on.
I've been avoiding going outside!

tamobhuuta 11-07-2022 05:00 PM

I had to go out for my clozapine which was a mission.

Osc I'm rewatching once upon a time! It's just really fun.
Well done on Tesco, it's over now! Time to look after yourself :)

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 05:37 PM

Lindsay I hope you got some ice cream whilst in tesco.

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 05:43 PM

Also psa they're shutting my road next Tuesday to Thursday. I think that they're replacing the phone poles then so if I disappear for several days it's because my phone line is down. I dont get a terribly good mobile phone signal here so I can't post. I also don't have unlimited data so I am going to go online less. I thought I would say because I don't want to worry people.

nonperson 11-07-2022 05:59 PM

I'm jealous of your aircon, Beckie. It got up to 38 degrees in the glasshouses today! I wasn't in there thankfully.

one_step_closer 11-07-2022 06:16 PM

I didn't get any ice cream in Tesco because I know I would eat loads of whatever I got and it would be gone within 24 hours which is bad. I hope you don't have too many problems with your phone line, Dawn.

You have air con, Beckie? Lucky you!

I don't know how you manage to work in this heat, NP.

nonperson 11-07-2022 06:24 PM

There's a degree of acclimatisation involved to be honest. You do kind of get used to it. I'm quite ready for autumn though...

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 07:15 PM

I think if we didn't have air con i would have called in sick XD
We had a long power cut today which was awkward because the tills all shut down so we couldn't put any orders through or take payments.
And the kitchen took a while to get back up and running. It came back on though!
We time travelled. The till said it was August 2012

nonperson 11-07-2022 08:45 PM

Did that mean the air con was out too?

Wow, August 2012.

Something similar happened at work here last week too. It must be going round. Don't think any time travel occurred though.

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 08:48 PM

Sadly yes!
The kitchen suffered most. They all had to go outside because it was like 100 C in there without the air con!

Yep. Jasmine would have been one month old!


nonperson 11-07-2022 08:51 PM

Aw baby Jasmine =)

I was still at my old job living at home. And probably mostly watching the London Olympics.

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 09:02 PM

Ah yes, the Olympics!
I managed to avoid all that stuff!

nonperson 11-07-2022 10:07 PM

I like that stuff. Apart from the crazy hype.

Cacoethes 11-07-2022 10:09 PM

I'm not a fan of sports in general!
I mean, i can appreciate the amazing athleticism but i just find it boring to watch
Each to their own i suppose!

not_so_insig 11-07-2022 10:23 PM

I only like horse sports. The only other thing I watched at the last Olympics was the triathlon.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 09:22 AM

Morning everyone!

I had a vivid dream about pumpkin pie.
Apparently you can't buy it anywhere at this time of year (makes sense because pumpkins) so i am sad

tamobhuuta 12-07-2022 11:22 AM

I lurve pumpkin pie.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 11:31 AM

Me too!
So good!

Morning tamo

tamobhuuta 12-07-2022 11:48 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 11:49 AM

I'm ok thanks!

How are you?

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 11:49 AM
