      Must be suffering from some kind of brain injury! Or maybe a symptom of coronavirus?

      Good job you like watching "Tangled" then GBG :)

      I got at least this right. I got into the barbers about two days before they were closed, and had a shorter cut than usual. 

      But we got more cash out in case there was a cash crisis. We thought the IT services might not cope with the demand for card payments, but hasn't thankfully happened yet. 

      I am fortunate as Julie is pretty good at haircutting. Not sure how she is going to take to stepping into the shoes of the podiatrist though 😬😬

    4. gingerbreadgirl

      gingerbreadgirl

      ooh cheese and marmite sounds good! no it's just a couple of slices of bread with some cheese in the microwave with some ketchup... i say toastie cos it sounds a bit more respectable :D

      So glad we have gas-fired  central heating. Never did like the storage heaters at mum-in-law's flat.

      It would have been hilarious if you'd posted that on Facebook, and if I was said friend I'd have totally liked the post for it's sheer honesty :lol:

      Haha yeah my friend probably secretly feels the same way :D 

  14. Just hoovered the extractor fan and now it is peeing water onto the floor 😬

      I never use extractor fans they always just seem like they make noise and that's it! 

      Never had a router so can't help you at all there! Hopefully you get it sorted :)

    3. taurean

      taurean

      Extractor fans have an on off override usually above the bathroom light switch. 

      And they only work when the light is on. 

      I would say there was some water ingress from outside trapped in the hole. There is supposed to be a 2-way flap on the outside which only opens when the fan is running, to let the air out. 

      Sounds like that flap is stuck open. 

    4. gingerbreadgirl

      gingerbreadgirl

      Thanks Roy. Yes I can turn it on it just doesn't clear the steam very well which is why I hoovered it. I don't think it's to do with the flap as it only happened after hoovering it however it seems to be stopping now which is good. 

  15. is it too early to go to bed? :D 

    1. Avo

      Avo

      No, its perfectly Ok - its dark outside after all isn't it?

    2. gingerbreadgirl

      gingerbreadgirl

      yes exactly :D and by that logic i will be going to bed at 4pm from now on, hurrah! 

  16. Has eaten far too many weetos

    1. taurean

      taurean

      Probably the words "far too many" are the issue here 😁

    2. Storm

      I’ve corrected it for you.

      ” Has eaten many weetos”

  18. When you find a spider in a hard to reach place and have no choice but to burn the house down and emigrate :D 

    1. Avo

      Avo

      I think certain members of my household would think that is a totally reasonable and proportionate response :a1_cheesygrin:

    2. gingerbreadgirl

      gingerbreadgirl

      Exactly it's entirely necessary! :D

      Leave them fire burner, spiders are fab (apart from dangerous ones). I'm currently still plagued by tinier and even more annoying unidentified crawling things on walls near front door.

  19. Has encountered about twenty million spiders in the last three days.

      J has got one here in the kitchen. 

      But she has worked a reframe - it's now a pet, along with all the garden wild animals. 

      She hasn't named it yet, but it'll come 🤣

    3. Ashley

      Ashley

      Living in the country I get loads of spiders and I don't mind them at all, I usually let them roam around. But I hate tiny insects and on the wall near my door I have lots of tiny ones crawling on the inside wall around front door when hot like yesterday. Urrgghghh
