Don't care. Horse riding is just a person sat on a poor animal making them prance around?

They're both equally dumb things and equally skillful things. *shrug*

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 12:15 AM

Yeah I suppose so!
Each to their own!

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 09:08 AM

Morning guys!

not_so_insig 09-06-2021 12:44 PM

I can't find my glasses. I have looked everywhere i think they can be. I am blind as a bat without them. Fortunately I have a spare pair so am wearing them. But they feel uncomfortable. Where the devil could they be?!

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 12:53 PM

Quiet in here today! .

Oh no Dawn! What a disaster.
I can't see without my glasses either

one_step_closer 09-06-2021 01:35 PM

Hi everyone.

I don't watch any sports.

I hope you find your glasses Dawn.

What are you doing today Beckie?

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 01:43 PM

Hi lindsay!

I had an assessment with the complex needs service.
He was very confused about pretty much everything I said. Like he was genuinely surprised about my answers to questions. It was quite amusing!

How are you?

one_step_closer 09-06-2021 01:55 PM

Sounds quite strange! Do you think it went ok?

I'm trying to be ok.

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 01:57 PM

It was a bit!
Like, this dude was a psychologist, I really should not have been confusing him that much XD

*hugs if wanted*
I hope you can be ok soon
I know things are hard though

not_so_insig 09-06-2021 03:46 PM

I cant find my glasses :angry:

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 03:47 PM

At least you have a spare pair!
If I lost mine I'd be screwed because this is my only pair!

one_step_closer 09-06-2021 05:22 PM

I have a pair from my previous prescription. Don't know how effective they would be! I wonder where your glasses are hiding Dawn, must be frustrating.

Cacoethes 09-06-2021 05:49 PM

Why is life so boring?

not_so_insig 09-06-2021 06:50 PM

I have eventually found my glasses. But not until about 6 pm. Found a really cheesy cd in the process plus some Christmas cards.

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 10:19 AM

Iiiiiiit's morning!

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 10:28 AM

It is indeed!

How are you tamo?

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 10:34 AM

I'm ok, gonna have a cup of tea. But I just got a reminder that my appointment next week is at 8.10am!

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 10:37 AM

Cup of tea sounds good
Do you have to actually go to the appointment or is it a phone one?

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 11:01 AM

It's a phone call, thank goodness.

Do you have plans?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 11:06 AM

That's ok then!
You can have an appointment in bed!

Nope! Just doing some washing.
And will go for a walk at some point
How about you?

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 11:09 AM

Just my normal routine, including exercise and Desperate Housewives.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 11:14 AM

Sounds good!

I've been getting so bored during the day

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 11:54 AM

I never get bored, my brain keeps me occupied.

I've changed my mind, I'm not exercising because I hate exercising on my period.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 12:02 PM

I've been bored a lot recently!

That's fair enough! Periods suck.
I'm glad I don't have them!

tamobhuuta 10-06-2021 12:14 PM

I envy you!

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 12:17 PM

Contraceptive injection. Haven't had a period in 8 years!
It's great! Lol!

one_step_closer 10-06-2021 12:22 PM

Boredom and periods are not fun. I'm quite bored a lot through the day too Beckie.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 12:32 PM

Hello lindsay!

It's times like this I wish I had friends who lived closer
Then we could go on adventures!
I would go on an adventure alone but I am broke lol!
London st Pancras is only 40 mins away by train so I could go on a London adventure!

one_step_closer 10-06-2021 12:36 PM

A London adventure might be good. I have nothing near me where I can have an adventure, or people to have an adventure with. Adventures are confusing with where people can go because of COVID anyway. Scottish rules are different I think. Maybe just another walk for you today?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 12:47 PM

That is true!
My Morocco ticket was cancelled because of covid. That would have been an adventure!

Yep it's gonna have to just be a walk!

Have you got any plans for the day?

one_step_closer 10-06-2021 02:58 PM

I'm supposed to be doing housework and replying to a pen pal letter but my mind won't let me. I managed to get out to buy cat bowls because I dropped one in the sink and it chipped. I usually go for a walk in the afternoon but I've not been able to for a while now.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 03:04 PM

Is it motivation you're struggling with?

one_step_closer 10-06-2021 03:13 PM

I don't really know, everything just seems too much, too hard, on top of trying to cope with my MH stuff.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 03:19 PM

I get that. Sometimes just existing feels too difficult and exhausting.
I Really hope you feel better soon <3

one_step_closer 10-06-2021 05:22 PM

Thanks. How has your day been so far?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 05:32 PM

Boring! I have been out for a walk but even that was boring! Done some housework. Trying not to impulse buy plants and more clothes! (Accidentally ordered some clothes yesterday!)
I'd probably kill the plants almost immediately anyway! I'm no good at stuff like that!

nonperson 10-06-2021 06:01 PM

I hear London is a good place to go adventuring at the moment because there aren't many (or any?) foreign tourists.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 06:16 PM

That is a good point np!
I'm going to Brighton with the bestie at the end of the month so that kinda counts as adventuring!

How are you np?

nonperson 10-06-2021 07:30 PM

Brighton is definitely a good adventure!

I'm ok, bit warm...! Much better mood than yesterday and I just earthed up my potatoes that I'm attempting to grow this year so kinda excited about that.

How're you?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 07:34 PM

I don't think I've ever actually been to Brighton!
I lived in Eastbourne for a bit

Yay that sounds exciting!!!

I'm good thanks! Just bored bored bored!

nonperson 10-06-2021 07:42 PM

I only remember going once but may have been other times. Exploring the lanes is fun.

Sorry about the boredom. =( What would you like to be doing?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 07:46 PM

I would like to be doing soo many things!
Like exploring different places but I have no money :(
My thoughts are just zooming about the place
I need a hobby!
I feel the urge to buy plants but a) I have no money and b) I'd probably kill any plant i get within a week!

nonperson 10-06-2021 08:07 PM

Plants are an investment but don't have to be expensive.

What about stuff on YouTube? Like exercise classes or learning a language or... I have no idea what else is on there but there has to be something that would catch your interest.

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 08:09 PM

That's a really good idea!
I've always wanted to learn a language

Carer just turned up. Without having picked up my medication. Surprise surprise

nonperson 10-06-2021 08:18 PM

It'll prepare you for future adventures =)

Ah they are so organised. What was the reason for not doing it?

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 08:22 PM


They said they were notified too late
I said I told them this morning and then called at 3pm and she looked very confused and said they weren't notified until after the pharmacy closed at 5pm :eyeroll:

nonperson 10-06-2021 08:45 PM

That age old problem of simple communication...

Cacoethes 10-06-2021 08:52 PM

I'm going to call my cpn tomorrow and tell her what has happened.
If I can't get rid of the carers right now then maybe she can call the pharmacy and let me pick up my own meds again!

Cacoethes 11-06-2021 10:16 AM

Good morning guys!

tamobhuuta 11-06-2021 11:00 AM
