General Chit Chat and NO Virus Talk

Other

Following from how topics change, lets just talk to our LD friends. What are we all up to, other than being confined to house.

Where I am, northeast, it is a lovely sunny and mild day and I wish the builders over the road would b****r off. I'm about to go for essentials but will come back.

Today I'm chilling. Yesterday I cut the grass, which was really exhausting, but it was lovely to be out in the warm sun. Perhaps I'll start some seeds off in pots - I had a bumper crop of tomatoes last year and I'm determined to match it this year. Isn't it amazing how our moods change with a few hours of sunshine?

Ann1984 Something odd going on. The 'facial' thing was there this morning @ 9am but totally gone now @ 10am and it had a few replies but non from OP. Is it 'N' or do you think it might be 'us'?

My son can now reach the shelf where his books are kept. So each day he brings me a book from his shelf for me to read. He has 2 books that play a tune and so far these are his favourites! So we listening to twinkle twinkle and if you're happy on a loop as he loves pushing the button ! My husband made pancakes for breakfast and our dog is loving the extra cuddles. I've also done a wash and the dishes have been done too.

It is very difficult to talk about what we're doing, if we are confined to the house but at the moment I am typing a comment on a Latest Deals chat topic - the excitement I feel is overwhelming - as I was writing "overwhelming" my phone rang and it was a blind friend who is also "under house arrest" we had quite a long and interesting chat. That's why it has taken me so long to write this comment.

Loislane I love baking and cooking from scratch when I'm in the right space in my head, lol. I'm having a lot of mickey taking at the moment because since Sept I've only been out of the house about a dozen times (including the garden πŸ˜‚) due to mental health. Finally I'm OK again and ready to get out and about and now we're all in. Oh, the irony πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I'm in the sunny bright North East too, Thought it was an ideal day to start taking down curtains & blinds, clean all windows etc as iv been intending but it was just a brief thought. I decided watching Outlander with a cuppa & biscuits was more appealing, so that's what I'm doing. Think I might do ironing afterwards or I might just listen the that podcast I want to.

See it's working - a chat about nowt. Just returned from Morrisons, 10 min queue to get in (not a problem and only letting 10 in at once), no queue to checkout just follow the yellow cross road. Got eggs (main item), fish, veg and toilet rolls for M in L (major necessity) there and back in 45 minutes - I walk. Wish I still had a garden. PS No free flowers 😞

I can't help but think that what you were doing because of the thing we're not supposed to talk about, is very questionable lilyflower ☺☺☺

I suppose me mentioning it is too.☺☺☺

I have spent the last few hours trying to sort things out for a subscriber to my YouTube channel who wanted the contact details of a friend of the person on my channel who was a friend of his, if you realise how confusing it can be doing this via a blind person without disclosing any contact details online, you'd realise why my brain is hurting and why I'd go back to bed , if I could, I can't because one has to get out of bed before one can return, and I've been too busy to get up yet. I have a very busy afternoon ahead of me too. . . which will last until after midnight.

This "house arrest" thing is very hard work. But never a dull moment.☺☺☺

lilyflower That tradition of forming an orderly queue (or "standing in line" - as people in Trumpland call it) seems to be dying out, I notice at bus stops when the bus comes it's usually a case of "nearest to the door first" nowadays. Very annoying when a bus you don't want pulls up before the one you do want and you're near the door of the first one, probably not a problem in your neck of the woods though Lily, have you got more than one bus up there yet? ☺☺☺

lilyflower I'm not without food yet, I reckon I could survive a few weeks without getting any more, the only thing I could be short of for next week is milk, but there are people much worse off. I actually think it's probably worse for people who are NOT on their own. It will probably be a month or even longer before that cat's in real danger, there again someone might get it first.☺ Image
