Cool. I don't know what to do this evening either. I've got about a billion things on the go on my tablet and two audiobooks. And an actual book.

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 07:23 PM

Oh wow! Plenty of choice then!

I have a few things to do tomorrow.
Pilates in the morning, then blood test which is unfortunately a train and bus ride away! And need to clean the boys out. Though my bin is full to the brim and collection is a day later this week!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 07:27 PM

You'll have to jump up and down on it to squish it in.

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 07:45 PM

I physically cannot get anymore in!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 09:04 PM

Oh dear!

I just gave my mum a picture I did of her favourite seaside for her birthday and she knew where it was without me telling her!

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 09:21 PM

I may have to sneak the extra bin bag into a neighbours bin!

Aww that's lovely!
My mum is like that with pretty much anywhere in Norfolk! She'll know it straight away!

Zurg 28-12-2022 09:22 PM

Woah Tamo!!! Time to be proud of your talent and ability!!!! :D

Sorry about the bin situation Beckie. Sneak out late at night and put some in the bins of your unsuspecting neighbours. (mwauahahahaaa!!!)

I don't know if i did too much today or if life is just difficult right now. Had a meltdown a few hours ago. Should probably have taken prn…. Don't feel too great. Sitting in bed with a coffee next to me and trying to allow my emotions to be present but not overwhelming. That is some seriously difficult **** and i am far from sure i'll ever master that….

tamobhuuta 28-12-2022 09:52 PM

I hope things calm down for you Zurg.

Cacoethes 28-12-2022 10:01 PM

That's the plan!
I don't think anyone would actually mind. As long as it's the right bin, rubbish is rubbish and it's all going to the same place!

Sorry you're not feeling great zurg.
Use prn if you need to! And maybe an early night?

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 10:14 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2022 10:35 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 12:06 PM

I'm ok thanks.

tamobhuuta 29-12-2022 12:49 PM

Not great but I've had PRN so my mind is calming down. The nurse on obs has been checking up on me even though I'm on hourly which is kind of her.

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 01:04 PM

Glad you have prn and the nurse is being nice!

I've just cleaned out the guinea pigs. Put the bin bag in neighbours bin!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2022 01:19 PM

Lol did you ask permission or are you hoping they don't notice?

Pi.R^2 29-12-2022 01:23 PM

On purpose??

Glad you've had some PRN tamo, I hope things feel calmer soon.

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 01:38 PM

Didn't ask permission. She's usually the one putting bin bags in other people's bins when there's no space! And she has told me to do that before! So I guess I do kind of have permission!
She's put all the bins out already. So unless she checks it or wants to put another bag in before tomorrow, she won't notice.

Yes jenna! My bin is packed full!

About to head off for the train then bus for my blood test. Ceeb.
They're short staffed at my gp surgery apparently so all blood tests are being done at hospital now. Annoying!

How are you jenna?

tamobhuuta 29-12-2022 01:53 PM

Fair enough then!

How are you Pi?

one_step_closer 29-12-2022 03:48 PM

I would never put rubbish in a neighbours bin, sneaky sneaky!

I hope you're feeling at least a bit better, Tamo.

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 03:53 PM

It's all going to the same place anyway!
A bin is a bin!

I am on the train back home. I don't think i have anything else to do today apart from shower later!

How are you doing lindsay?

Oh and one of my false nails came off. I was hoping it would hold on until after the new years party but sadly not. Devastated.

one_step_closer 29-12-2022 04:01 PM

Would none of your neighbours go in a rage about it? I'm just about to put my bin out and fill the bird feeders. Most of my neighbours already have their bins out because they put them out yesterday. They must not know it's been moved to the following day.

Do you not have glue or something to put your nail back on? Are you going to be partying with work/family for new year?

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 04:29 PM

Don't think so!
I don't really know any of my neighbours that well. And neighbour i do know well often splits excess rubbish into different bins anyway so they're all used to it!
Everyone round here is pretty chill tbh.

I do not :(
And idk if my nail lady would struggle to remove it if i used a random glue. They are gel extensions, not acrylics. Idk how it works tbh!
Yep I'm going to the work NYE party. Casino royale theme this year!

one_step_closer 29-12-2022 05:59 PM

The neighbour that you know well seems to do everything!

I hope you enjoy the party, have you got an outfit prepared?

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 06:24 PM

She does!

Yes i have. I got a dress from prettylittlething. On sale of course! I was going to get some heels but will probably just wear my dolly shoes. Heels hurt, i can't walk in them and once the floor in the bar gets wet, it's hazardous af so probably safer to wear flats anyway! I also may have to walk home.

Zurg 29-12-2022 08:18 PM

Evening all :)

I had to take Findus to the vet again today as he had gotten poorly again :(
My mum was taking my brother home so she couldn't drive me. I chose to go by bike as that is the fastest and less stressful option for bunny. It was very very windy and i had a bunny backpack on with a very annoyed and struggling bunny within. That was interesting… The vet gave him another round of meds. We came back home and he has been resting since. Well, apart from begging for treats at any given opportunity ;)

It's a bit diffcult emotionally, trying to handle this in the middle of a depression so i took some prn when we Got back. My support woker offered to come by today but he has a nasty cold so i told him to stay home and get better instead.

Trying to be okay. Booked an appointment with my new gp surgery. They didn't have one until early february. Suppose that's better than my previous clinic that often didn't have any available appointments for 2-3 months in advance…

Trying to be kind to myself with a foot spa. God knows that's long overdue. Better get my feet out now and dry them up. Being female is hard work!!! Soooo many neverending beauty/self care routines… i wonder what men do in their spare time…??? ;)

Cacoethes 29-12-2022 08:40 PM

Poor findus!
I hope he (and you!) Feel better soon!
I'm glad you managed to get a gp appointment

Being female is indeed hard work!

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 10:19 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 10:47 AM

Morning! How are you?

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 10:51 AM

Not bad thanks

Zurg 30-12-2022 10:58 AM

Morning Beckie and Tamo :)

Are you guys doing anything today?

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 11:04 AM


I have to go to asda, as usual! And then work.
How about you?

Zurg 30-12-2022 11:14 AM

I'm doing laundry. I feel like i have a mountain of dirty clothes/towels/bed sheets etc. This Will surely end up taking 3 hours or something o_o

I want to go shopping too *sulks*
Only, i don't want to drag my ass all the Way up there to the shop. And be around people in sheer panic, shopping for booze for new years'. I really don't need to Stock up on anything either…. Damn!!! Better stay home and Camp out in the laundry basement all day :D

one_step_closer 30-12-2022 11:20 AM

Morning everyone, I hope you all have a good day. Bucketing with rain here with a weather warning.

I hope your shift goes well, Beckie and you also get what you need at Asda.

You need to try and do something nice for yourself too, Kat.

I'm waiting in for Royal Mail picking up a parcel from me. They're coming between 10am and 2pm, I hope they come soon because I need to go for my prescription and wash my hair.

I ordered something off eBay and didn't like it when it arrived so I started the return process and the seller tried to convince me to keep the item and he'd give me 10% of the cost back and told me not to give negative feedback. No way! I've dealt with people like this before and I will carry on with the return and take it to higher people if I need to.

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 12:28 PM

I'm also doing laundry!

I went to asda and aldi

It's raining here.too. and rather windy!

Well done for standing your ground with the ebay person!
Sounds pretty dodgy!

one_step_closer 30-12-2022 01:22 PM

I did my laundry (but I call it washing) yesterday. I do it every couple of days and not to brag but I put the dry washing from the clothes horse (or do you call it an airer?) away on the same day. No piles of clothes waiting to be washed or put away lying there for days!

Some roads are flooded here, the sun has just come out though.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 02:48 PM

The weather here is miserable.

My dad came to see me this morning and my mum is taking me out for half an hour this afternoon.

one_step_closer 30-12-2022 05:42 PM

I hope you enjoyed/enjoy your time out despite the weather, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 06:04 PM

We didn't go proper out in the end, just to the cafe area at the front.

How's your day going?

one_step_closer 30-12-2022 06:11 PM

Did that mean you didn't have to go outside? Did you have something nice from the cafe?

I got everything done that I needed to do today, just have my fingers crossed that the couple of returns I sent work out ok. It's back to rain and heavy winds and I'm wearing two jumpers because it's cold. Will try and do some reading when Crookshanks has been fed.

What are you doing with your evening?

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 07:36 PM

The cafe was closed but Mum had brought coffee and muffins from the Costa at the service station so I didn't have to go outside. This evening I'm listening to audiobooks. I just caught up with The Dark is Rising on the BBC and next I'm going to listen to more of Night Watch. What are you reading?

Pi.R^2 30-12-2022 08:32 PM

Evening all!
Hope you had a nice time with your mum tamo and well done on getting everything done Lindsay :)

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 08:36 PM

Hi Pi, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 08:50 PM

Good evening!
I am back from work. Just put on 'Prince Andrew: the musical'

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 08:52 PM

I saw an ad for that on Facebook, it doesn't appeal. How was work?

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 09:05 PM

I'm enjoying it! Love satirical humour! Poking fun of royals/politicians etc!

Was ok thanks! Actually pretty chill for a Friday! I guess everyone is saving their money for tomorrow night!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 09:17 PM

Are you doing anything for New Year's Eve?

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 09:21 PM

Yep! Going to the work thing.
Gonna be busy. Tickets have sold out! Will be fun though!
Are you going to stay up until midnight?
When i was in hospital for new years 2020, we all got party poppers and burst into handover and popped them!
I went to bed early but got woken up by fireworks

tamobhuuta 30-12-2022 09:30 PM

No way am I staying up til midnight! I hope you have fun :)

Cacoethes 30-12-2022 09:30 PM

Fair enough!
Thank you :)

Zurg 30-12-2022 09:47 PM

With the amounts of fireworks tonight you'd legit Think some people have mistaken this night for new years….. This annoys me. I have never really liked fireworks. They are too loud, they make a nasty smell cover the entire city and it looks like **** everyhwere the following day. And animals get scared of them. Which in my opinion would be reason enough to Ban them!!!

Hope the party tomorrow Will be fabulous, Beckie!!!
And i hope you can go to bed whenever you want to, Tamo!!!
And Lindsay, i recommend two kittens on your lap, turning on the heat, a cup of very hot tea and please don't add anymore because there is always a risk of accidentally self igniting!!!
