Cacoethes 20-08-2022 03:10 PM

It made me jump for sure!
No idea how it happened. Will have to clean it up at some point. Just seems overwhelming.
I'll send the letting agent an email on monday. Hopefully it's just a case of replacing the glass.

I do seem to be very good at choosing clothes online! Even when i have to order a different size, they always end up.fitting me! It's quite spooky actually!

Oh no np! It sucks to lose good people.
Are you getting new students?


That is indeed very random!

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 03:15 PM

I can see why it seems overwhelming, especially with how you're feeling. Just be careful with the glass. Maybe you could shout over your neighbour!

I hope it is just a case of replacing the glass. I always think things are a bigger deal than they usually are as with thinking you'd need a whole new cooker. I really need to start thinking repair rather than replacing the whole thing. I usually just buy new things if they break but I can't be doing that now.

Do you need any more clothes or is that you sorted?

nonperson 20-08-2022 03:15 PM

It's good you don't have to organise the repair yourself. Maybe just sweep all the glass into a pile out of the way for now?

I'm not sure you would know the song, Lindsay but Beckie definitely should!

And yeah we get three new students every year. I've been told one of them I'll really get on with.

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 03:31 PM

My neighbour is coming to do a clean on Monday, i did consider leaving it until then but I'm not that much of an awful person XD

I used to be the same with just replacing broken things. But I'm better at sorting things out now

Nope I'm all sorted now!
Just waiting on the shoes and a small shoulder bag.
Oh and i may need a light cardigan. I won't be cold during the day but thinking i may be a bit chilly at night? But then we're not going to be outside so idk

Yeah I'll just get a dustpan and brush and sweep it. It's all in the oven and everything. Ugh.

Oh yes i certainly do know the song! And it is now in my head :plain:

That's good!

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 04:27 PM

I saw your photo, is there much glass on the floor or is it all in the oven. It might be easy enough to clean it out of the oven seen as it's gathered in a relatively small space.

Glad you've got your outfit sorted.

one_step_closer 20-08-2022 04:32 PM

I listened to the song. Now that part is stuck in my head! Why did I do it?!

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 04:56 PM

It was mainly in the oven.
I've cleaned most of it up, it's just that there's a load in the gap between the oven and the door and i can't figure out how to get it all out! In the meantime, i can't fully close or fully open the oven. Ugh. Why is being an adult so hard.

Haha! It's a good song tbf

chinahorse 20-08-2022 06:50 PM

Evening folks :-)

Cacoethes 20-08-2022 06:51 PM

Hey Lillie!

How are you?

chinahorse 20-08-2022 08:48 PM

I've been better. But have just forced myself out to lidle. As I had only wine milk and out of date butter in my fridge. Not sure anyone could make a meal out of that! Or even a snack.

How are you this evening?

nonperson 20-08-2022 09:41 PM

Lillieeeeee <3

I'm still out like the social butterfly I seem to be nowadays. No idea what this music is and the dance floor is empty. Not drunk enough for dancing yet =P

nonperson 20-08-2022 09:41 PM

And by nowadays, I mean the last two days haha

chinahorse 20-08-2022 10:02 PM

At a party? I hope there's food.

I'm ringing about bed.

Pi.R^2 20-08-2022 10:10 PM

Beckie, so much sympathy for your glass-based chaos; sounds like a nightmare!

Well done for making it to Lidl Lillie!

Enjoy your buzzing social life np =D

My parents just came round to learn how to look after our chinchillas while we're away and OH MY DAYS they made it seem so much harder than it is to clean a cage :P

nonperson 20-08-2022 11:57 PM

They just want to get it right!

My mum's the same when she comes.to.look after Geordi. It's like, feed him, give him cuddles, give him a lap and he'll be fine.

I'm home finally.

Wouldn't call.it a buzzing social life. It was good fun 6h9ugh and I did actually get up off the comfy sofa at the back and dance a bit. I'm gonna pay for this this tomorrow or the next few days in sure.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 06:57 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 21-08-2022 09:10 AM


I'm so tired... D=

How're you?

Zurg 21-08-2022 09:18 AM

Morning Beckie and NP :-)

How are you both today??

My bunny Alberte has retreated to her cage. I suspect she's a bit cross with me because i wouldn't let her eat my couch….

nonperson 21-08-2022 09:41 AM

Hey Zurg. How're you?

I'm... not in my 20s any more.

I think Alberte has good reason to be cross with you. =P

tamobhuuta 21-08-2022 10:15 AM

Congratulations np!

Naughty Alberte.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 10:33 AM

Hey guys!

I'm ok. Had a good pilates class.

Have you got much to do today np?
Hopefully you can rest!

And the animal abuse continues zurg! ;p

nonperson 21-08-2022 10:35 AM

It's not my birthday, tamo. =P

It was meant as a comment that I am old and not as resilient as I was back then.

How're you today? Was it your sister's party yesterday?

nonperson 21-08-2022 10:37 AM

Oops. No nothing to do today. Going blackberry picking this afternoon so I will definitely be resting until then. Might have a nap at some point.

Are you working today?

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 10:49 AM

Sounds good np!
Loads of kids have been blackberry picking on the footpath next to the railway (my route to town)

Back at work tomorrow after 6 days off!
Doesn't seem like a long time but it feels like I've been off forever!

tamobhuuta 21-08-2022 11:28 AM

Oops np! I am old too. I had a good time with my sister but I didn't stay long, I got tired. I hope you have fun blackberrying.

I hope you enjoy your last day off Cacoethes.

I am ok.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 11:34 AM

Glad you had a good time tamo


one_step_closer 21-08-2022 02:19 PM

Hi everyone.

Nice to see you, Lillie.

Hope you're ok, NP!

Too much to catch up with here.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 02:26 PM

Hey lindsay!
Yes its been quite busy in here today!

How are you?

one_step_closer 21-08-2022 02:31 PM

I'm not sure. Got up later than ever because I stayed up late for a delivery of a doughnut box. Still have some doughnuts left so that's a win! *shares* I better not get into a habit with this.

How's your day going?

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 02:48 PM

Ooohhh doughnuts!
I could totally go for some doughnuts right now

It's ok thanks. Just booked a free consultation for personal training sessions. 8am which means I'll have to set off at 7:15am (it's near work) but it should be good!
It's not until the 8th September though.

Zurg 21-08-2022 04:17 PM

Lindsay, you do know that whatever you eat during the weekend doesn't actually count in the calorie book, right??? ;-)
That's my theory and i'm sticking to it!!!!

Oooh, blackberries??? Mmmmm. Yummy!! And i know what you mean about being out at night!!! Even when i was indeed in my 20'ies i never even felt like i was in my 20'ies. I've always been old/had the body of an old person XD

Glad it was a nice birthday, Tamo!!!!

I'm hungry.
There's a hole in my couch…..!!!
I am unsure what these two pieces of information are doing here.
In my defense; i'm old and easily confused….

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 04:18 PM

I've always been old too zurg!

one_step_closer 21-08-2022 05:01 PM

I'm in the always been old gang too.

Did bunny get to your couch, Kat or have you been snacking on it?

I prefer raspberries to blackberries.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 05:14 PM

I do too lindsay

I have just had a shower and put my washing away.
Been such a boring day!

one_step_closer 21-08-2022 05:16 PM

If every day was exciting and busy you'd be overwhelmed. Life is generally boring I think. Except when you go on your trips! Well done for doing the boring things you had to do today.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 05:21 PM

That's true!
I did enjoy pilates this morning but that was at 9am and feels SO LONG AGO! Almost like it wasn't even today!

Zurg 21-08-2022 06:20 PM

Lindsay, sadly i must confess i don't enjoy munching on furniture. Even though the fibres would be good for me….

I know the feeling Beckie!! It feels like i Got out of bed 4 days ago and not this morning.

Boring is the theme of my life in general. But i prefer it that Way. I am too old and too easily stimulated to live an exciting life. I need coffee to wake me from my nightly comatose state…!!! Hibernation ftw!!!

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 06:30 PM

I have read about a woman with pica and she has eaten several sofas in her lifetime. Can't be very nice for her digestive system though!

I wish i could hibernate sometimes. But my body has decided that i get up early now :plain:

nonperson 21-08-2022 07:33 PM

Can't imagine eating a sofa...

I prefer raspberries to blackberries as well.

Blackberrying was good fun. A really chilled out afternoon and then I went back to my friend's for a bit which was nice.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 07:36 PM

I googled it. She has eaten 7 sofas in 21 years.

Sounds like a perfect sunday np!

I have arranged a first meet up with A Normal Person.
Advice on how to act normal for a bit? I have until the 30th to prepare.
I can only act normal in very small doses!

nonperson 21-08-2022 07:45 PM

I think you're asking the wrong group of people XD

Just absolutely be yourself. Set a time limit or ready an excuse to leave, like you have somewhere else to go?

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 07:55 PM

Ah. Yes. XD

I'm hoping she ends up being not COMPLETELY normal. I guess not many people are these days anyway!

nonperson 21-08-2022 08:09 PM

No, that is true. Normal isn't a thing at all. People's quirks are what make them unique and interesting.

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 08:12 PM

I wholeheartedly agree!
I do hope we get on. Would be nice to have someone to spontaneously meet up with in town rather than having to plan things months in advance!
She seems lovely anyway.

nonperson 21-08-2022 08:48 PM

Then I'm sure it will be absolutely fine =)

Cacoethes 21-08-2022 08:53 PM

Thanks :)

Bed time for me now!
I shall see you tomorrow
Night night

nonperson 21-08-2022 08:56 PM

Sleep well!

Cacoethes 22-08-2022 06:51 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 22-08-2022 08:09 AM

Morning Beckie.
How are you?? :-)

Cacoethes 22-08-2022 08:11 AM

I'm ok thanks

How are you?
Have you eaten anymore of the sofa? :tongue2:
