I hope you feel better soon :(

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 12:35 PM

Me too lindsay!

I hope you're feeling better soon lindsay.

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 03:06 PM

I'm in the garden getting some fresh air.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 03:16 PM

Fresh air is good!

I've done my washing, been to asda and the pharmacy
I'm also treating my washing machine to a clean lol
Bought some washing machine cleaner powder stuff

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 03:19 PM

Well done. I have had to put my scapular to soak. That's religious pictures on a string that you wear round your neck.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 03:28 PM

Thanks :)

I've never heard of a scapular before!

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 03:38 PM

They're unusual even with Catholics. I got one because my prayer group belongs to the Carmelites.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 03:43 PM

Sounds interesting!

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 03:48 PM

It's nice to have with me, a reminder when I need it.

What are you up to?

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 03:55 PM

That's good :)

Not a lot really!
Need to put my washing away but currently just watching tv.
I will shower in the evening

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 03:58 PM

What are you watching?

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 04:07 PM

Police interceptors.
I'm not really watching it though
I'm mainly doing random internetting and the tv is on because I need background noise.

tamobhuuta 12-10-2021 04:10 PM

I often have the TV on while I'm doing wordsearches.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 04:26 PM

I find it hard to concentrate on one thing for too long!

I'm glad you explained that because I was confused as to how you were soaking your shoulder blades...!

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 06:02 PM

Lol np!

nonperson 12-10-2021 06:19 PM

But I googled and they are spelled differently, couldn't remember if I was making up a bone name.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 06:22 PM

I knew it sounded familiar!

nonperson 12-10-2021 06:26 PM

I actually thought it was the collar bone but got the general shoulder area right at least! I liked learning all the bones in PE =)

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 06:35 PM

I don't think I was there during those lessons in PE but I have a general interest in anatomy!
I once had to buy an anatomy book to prove to a psych nurse that the kidneys were either side of the spine and NOT towards the front of your body (like each side of your belly button)

nonperson 12-10-2021 07:10 PM

It's sad that had to be proved to her...

I think we only did the bones of the body in GCSE PE which seems a bit weird and late to be learning that sort of stuff.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 07:15 PM


That makes sense that it would be in GCSE pe
But agree it should be taught earlier!

I wasn't really in school from year 8 upwards so i missed a lot! The hospital schools only really covered the basics

nonperson 12-10-2021 07:41 PM

You didn't miss much really. Can't say I use much of what I learned in school!

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 07:45 PM

I suppose so!

How are you doing anyway?
Had a good day?

not_so_insig 12-10-2021 08:07 PM

Hello all. I have had new glasses today.

nonperson 12-10-2021 08:50 PM

My day was quite good, lots of laughter and silliness at work. It was nice.

Hi Dawn. Are you liking your new glasses?

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 08:55 PM

That sounds good np!

nonperson 12-10-2021 09:04 PM

Supervisor might be back tomorrow though so there won't be the same lols.

Cacoethes 12-10-2021 10:41 PM

That's a shame
It's never as much fun with management about!

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 09:24 AM

Moooorning everyone

tamobhuuta 13-10-2021 12:07 PM

Afternoon :) how are you?

not_so_insig 13-10-2021 01:16 PM

Afternoon all. I have been swimming before.

tamobhuuta 13-10-2021 02:08 PM

How was it insig?

I went into town to get my glasses.

one_step_closer 13-10-2021 02:23 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Did you enjoy your swim Dawn?

What do your glasses look like Tamo?

(I've seen yours on Fb Dawn, I like them).

Where have you disappeared to Beckie?

not_so_insig 13-10-2021 03:11 PM

Yes I enjoyed my swim thanks Lindsay.

nonperson 13-10-2021 05:33 PM

Evening all. How's everyone doing?

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 06:56 PM

Helloooo everyone!

nonperson 13-10-2021 07:13 PM


Cacoethes 13-10-2021 07:27 PM

I totally typed it in Mrs Doubtfires voice :p

I saw 6 GROUPS of joggers on the way home. And that was just on the road leading to mine!

nonperson 13-10-2021 07:29 PM

Well how else would that word be read/typed/said?! =D

Joggers are bastards. They're all out earlier now because it gets dark and cold earlier.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 07:41 PM


They are *nearly* as bad as the lycra tw*ts on bikes

nonperson 13-10-2021 07:47 PM

Oh don't ****ing get me started on them.

It's either joggers with earphones in so they can't hear when a car is driving right behind them and can't get past on the single lane road... or cyclists in big groups that feel like they're more entitled than me to take up space on the road than anyone else. Bastards.


How was work?

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 07:49 PM

Yes exactly!
Why do people suck so much?!

Work was incredibly quiet!
So the day went super slowly.
How about you?

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:00 PM

People = ****

I mean you guys here don't count obviously. My friend was talking to me today about how I don't "put myself out there" when it comes to friendships...

Ugh it's rubbish when days go slowly but it makes for an easier day. I still had no supervisor so it was a more chilled day but I have two days on my own now so that sucks.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:04 PM

Very true!

Making friends as an adult is really hard!

That's true.
It was definitely easier!
Being alone at work does suck
Especially when it's quiet because you kind of just have to stand there awkwardly with no one to talk to!

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:13 PM

Making friends has always been hard...!

Yeah I mean at least I don't have to stand still and wait around for work to come to me... I have plenty to get on with but it's hard to motivate myself. People sometimes pop in for a chat but it has to be brief really. It sucks because there are some cool people that I can actually talk to fairly easily but they're out working in the garden most of the time so it's only fleeting conversations!

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:17 PM


Finding motivation can be so difficult.

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:37 PM

Sometimes having a massive long list of jobs doesn't help with motivation, but sometimes it does. It's weird.

Cacoethes 13-10-2021 08:44 PM

Yeah I get that
I like to cross things off lists.
It's very satisfying

nonperson 13-10-2021 08:48 PM

It is really satisfying.

I have a white board with jobs and a diary of daily lists and don't seem to be able to cross any of it off lately!
