I know things aren't really bland without spice or pepper.

It's when spicey hot is the only "flavour"... that's pointless.

Happy birthday Beckie!

chinahorse 10-10-2018 09:08 AM

Morning guys. :)

nonperson 10-10-2018 10:11 AM

Happy ‘World Mental Health Day’ everyone!

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 12:41 PM

Thanks Dawn!

Morning everyone

Indigo. 10-10-2018 12:58 PM

Hey guys! (For those who don't know me, I'm Lucy :) )

How's it going?

Happy Birthday Beckie!

chinahorse 10-10-2018 01:05 PM

Hey again, hows it going Lucy?

I'm still sleepy despite another hour in bed. But I don't want to spend all my time off work in bed and I have appointments so have had to get up.

Indigo. 10-10-2018 01:10 PM

Lillie! I'm at my friends' house, also a bit tired and dreading walking all the way into town later.

It sounds like you've got a bit of a busy day ahead! I hope it's not too tiring X

not_so_insig 10-10-2018 01:51 PM

Yay! Another welsh woman!

Indigo. 10-10-2018 02:04 PM

Hello there! Yay for Wales <3 The weather is so nice here today, which I wasn't really expecting!

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 02:06 PM

It's quite here too!

one_step_closer 10-10-2018 03:56 PM

How is this Wednesday? The days seem all wrong to me recently.

It's warm here too, strange. I'm getting a bit freaked out by the whole global warming thing! I went to buy some things to make my brother a winter care box but I'm wondering if winter will even arrive.

Anyone doing anything exciting?

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 04:44 PM

I know what you mean Lindsay!

I'm sure winter will hit us soon!
When we least expect it

Went to see musculoskeletal doctor person today.
Been referred to physio so that's fun.
She said it's treatable though which is good!

Indigo. 10-10-2018 06:08 PM

I hadn't even realised it was Wednesday until now!

It has been rather warm lately. Although a winter care box sounds lovely! I love autumn and winter but tend to get quite ill during these seasons because of SAD.

Beckie, getting referred to physio sounds like progress. I hope it helps.

I'm just hanging out with my girlfriend, watching stand-up comedy videos.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 06:23 PM

That must be hard Lucy

Thanks! Hopefully I'll get an appointment through soon.
Also hoping its not scary physio lady I saw a few years ago....

Stand up comedy is cool!
Who are you watching?

nonperson 10-10-2018 06:27 PM


I opened my back door because it's BOILING... but there's some godawful beeping coming from somewhere outside. >.<

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 06:43 PM

It is very warm!
Beeping sounds annoying though!

nonperson 10-10-2018 06:46 PM

It's stopped now, thankfully.

Beeping/buzzing is something that really irritates me. I could hear it over the washing machine AND the tv!

There's also a chance it was just in my head...

Indigo. 10-10-2018 06:49 PM

It is, Beckie, but I've got one of those special lamps for SAD and I'm hoping to try it out this year.

I hope the physio is nicer this time around!

We're watching Dara O Briain, Chris Ramsey, and a couple others. Our other partners are going to one of Dara's shows and we kind of want to go too.

nonperson - That sucks, I can relate. We opened the window the other day, and there was super loud construction work just outside :/

nonperson 10-10-2018 06:53 PM

Ooh construction work is one of the worst noises.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 06:59 PM

I love Dara!
Mock the week is one of my favourite shows

Yep construction work is awful!

I've just re dyed my hair and now my hands are purple....

nonperson 10-10-2018 07:00 PM

You might have started a new fashion trend there, Beckie.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 07:07 PM

I don't usually end up with purple hands so not sure what happened this time!!

nonperson 10-10-2018 07:18 PM

Will it wash off eventually?

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 07:20 PM

Bloody hope so!

nonperson 10-10-2018 07:23 PM

At least it's getting cold enough now to wear gloves if you need to hide your hands. =)

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 07:28 PM


It seems to be coming off gradually with every hand wash so I think I'll be ok!

Indigo. 10-10-2018 07:31 PM

I'm enjoying all the stand up, especially Dara!

Beckie, you should try warm water and washing up liquid, and rubbing with a cloth. That has worked for me before.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 07:32 PM

Oo that's a good idea!

nonperson 10-10-2018 07:45 PM

And something scrubby like sugar? It'll make your hands nice and smooth too.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 07:49 PM

I don't think I have any sugar!

nonperson 10-10-2018 07:53 PM

Oh, well forget that idea then... =P

chinahorse 10-10-2018 07:55 PM

Face scrub?

I went for a routine eye test and ended up in eye a and e. Had to cancel my pain appointment too. Now seeing neuro on monday. A very odd day. And I sorta panic picked some new glasses so I hope both pairs turn out to be ok.

nonperson 10-10-2018 08:02 PM

Oh no, are your eyes ok? =/

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 08:04 PM

Don't have any face scrub either!
Seems to be fading nicely though!

Oh no Lillie, that sounds stressful!

chinahorse 10-10-2018 08:11 PM

That's good beckie.

They have enlarged blood vessels and discs but probably are just how I am but considering the headaches is why I'm seein neurosurgery. The eyes are ok enough though.

And I'm knackered and stressed as hell as I didnt have my pain letter or a pen so had to ring hospital switchboard and then couldn't get through to pain. So eventually got a number for appointments who sent an email then I managed to get through. And urgh.

nonperson 10-10-2018 08:13 PM

Probably best to get it checked out, maybe they can help with the headaches.

Try to relax now. You got through in the end. Contacting hospitals is always a palava!

Indigo. 10-10-2018 08:15 PM

Oh Lillie, I hope it's nothing too serious :(

I hope it comes off soon, Beckie! I've had blue/purple/red nails so many times from washing my after I'd dyed it.

zombiehunter 10-10-2018 08:16 PM

i went to see venom today, it's ok, not as bad as the critics said but still ok

Indigo. 10-10-2018 08:18 PM

Lillie, hopefully you can rest and relax tonight!

I want to watch Venom at some point but I'm a bit skint rn, so don't think it's gonna be any time soon.

chinahorse 10-10-2018 08:20 PM

It's probably stress related or wearing significantly out dated glasses related. And I've got nothing done today at all.

Glad it was ok enough zombie.

one_step_closer 10-10-2018 08:22 PM

I hope you're ok Lillie.

I have no idea what Venom is.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 08:23 PM

I want to see Venom too!
But am also skint lol

Eska 10-10-2018 08:29 PM

Hi everyone

zombiehunter 10-10-2018 08:37 PM

hi eskamo coco and OSC

OSC venom is the new film based on the marvel comics character of the same name

Indigo. 10-10-2018 08:49 PM

I really like Venom as a character so am interested in seeing their portrayal in the film.

not_so_insig 10-10-2018 08:55 PM

Hello all. I have not been swimming today due to the fact that I am on time of the month. I am probably not going for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road due to the fact that it's supposed to rain tomorrow.

Cacoethes 10-10-2018 08:56 PM

I like most Marvel films so will definitely be going to see it!

chinahorse 10-10-2018 08:59 PM

You'll not melt in the rain Dawn!

Venom doesn't grab me like others have :/ there's not been much in the cinema really lately.

zombiehunter 10-10-2018 09:00 PM

*hides in time of the month proof bunker til its safe to come out*
