Don't make pizza from scratch but we buy bases and sauce and add our own toppings and cheese. So I chopped the toppings.

I used to the make the dough and the sauce from scratch but don't have the energy these days!

Lasagne and garlic bread us a winning combi. He he he Findus in the bun cave!

I just have soft toys to cuddle in bed instead of any pets.

Ahimsa 03-04-2023 10:42 PM

Hey all,

Pizza sounds yummy, what did you put on it?

OSC, what animal is Crookshanks? :)

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 07:18 AM

Morning guys.

Its so early!! I got to sleep about 5, I've just got in the car for work :(

Zurg 04-04-2023 08:37 AM

Snailzilla is mostly a bit cold and moist to hold. It feels funny when she moves around on my hand. Snails Will instinctively try to eat anything they touch/sit on so she usually tries on me too. They don't have teeth but kind of a rough tongue that can tear up tiny pieces of vegetables and fruit so they can eat it. When she tries eating me it feels like a wee tickle XD
She doesn't appear to be totally crazy about baths but i Think she does enjoy it every once in a while.
She's 4 years old this spring :D

What is everyone up to today??
I'm going with my mum (who has a car. Quite handy!!) to the pet store to load up on stuff before the Easter holidays. A lot of shops in Denmark are closed on thursday and friday. And on sunday and monday too, during Easter.

tamobhuuta 04-04-2023 09:58 AM

Morning guys.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 11:59 AM

Hi everyone.

Ahimsa, Crookshanks is a cat, nothing as exotic as the things in Kat's zoo. I hope work goes well.

I hope you get everything you need, Kat. I don't think many shops close here, they just have reduced hours.

How are you, Tamo?

I didn't get to sleep until some point after 3am. Managed to get up at 9.30am before my support worker called to see if I'm coming to the gym group which I'm not because I need to take Crookshanks to the vet for his booster injection and check up. I hope I can easily get a taxi this time.

tamobhuuta 04-04-2023 01:38 PM

I am ok thanks osc. I hope you get to the vet ok. Sorry you had trouble getting to sleep.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 01:40 PM

Thanks. What have you been getting up to so far today?

tamobhuuta 04-04-2023 01:41 PM

Just my normal things. Watching local news now, doctors next.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 01:52 PM

Enjoy :-)

long road 04-04-2023 03:11 PM

Snailzilla sounds so cool! If I ever get a pet though I think it will be a tortoise.

I had ham, pineapple, mushroom and red onion on my pizza with cheddar and hard mozzarella as the cheeses.

Hope your Crookshanks is better behaved than Hermione's at the vet OSC!

I managed to get outside by routine time and had a call with my neurophysio this morning. Have an in person appointment arranged for next week to learn some stretches. Had a rest and am now chilling watching TV and drinking tea.

Pi.R^2 04-04-2023 03:25 PM

Cross about pineapple on pizza. That is all.

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 03:29 PM

Awww yay another cat owner! I have four ��

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 03:31 PM

Wheesht Jenna. Pineapple is fine on pizza.

I approve of your toppings, Jen, except maybe mushroom.

Crookshanks doesn't mind the vet too much, he walks out his carrier and tries to explore the place while I'm trying to keep him on the table.

Sounds like a good day, Jen. I'm glad you've managed some positive things. How is your pain today? What are you watching on TV?

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 03:32 PM

I couldn't cope with 4 cats I don't think! 2 was enough for me before Church died but I'm not planning on getting a friend for Crookshanks.

long road 04-04-2023 03:50 PM

I didn't make you eat the pineapple pizza Jenna :p.

As we always do chose your own toppings for pizza at my house people can have whatever they like on pizza. Most things on my fridge are fair game unless they are specifically for another meal. So Jenna you can have a pineappleless vegan cheese pizza and OSC you don't have to eat any mushrooms!

I switch it up with different toppings each time one of my main go to's is roast butternut squash, mushroom and red onion. I reckon butternut squash is probably more controversial than pineapple!

Glad Crookshanks is mostly well behaved if inquisitive!

Got tired so stopped watching TV and have come to bed to rest and listen to a podcast but I was just watching time team. Pain wise it's noticeable but pretty low grade. And hopefully physio appointment next week will help with pain management.

tamobhuuta 04-04-2023 03:52 PM

I would love to try butternut squash on pizza.

I hope you feel better soon long road.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 05:36 PM

I don't know if I've ever tried butternut squash.

What podcast are you listening to, Jen? I hope you find more ways to manage your pain.

Crookshanks has a heart murmur. :sad:

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 05:55 PM

I'm sorry to hear he has a heart murmur. How is he doing?

After my meeting last week about not making me jump, my manager grabbed my arm today to tell me something and made me jump.

I also FINALLY heard back from my police officer, to say exactly what my ISVA told me over a month ago. (because my officer HADNT told me).

She also hasn't responded to my emails from January, February and March. My ISVA asked if she wanted me to chase her to reply but I told her not to bother. its just more for her to ignore.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 06:02 PM

Oh, they are so sweet Ahisma! I see some birthday cards, what ages are they all?

That's not helpful with your police officer, is anyone else better with stuff? Have you got things planned to get you through tomorrow?

Crookshanks is just his usual self. I've to check his resp rate once a week and if it gets higher contact the vet and he might be put on meds.

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 06:03 PM

My older two have just turned four, and the younger two are two!

Nope, there's just little old me.

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 06:04 PM

Do you know what support you need? How do you manage things yourself?

I hope your cats can provide some comfort at least.

Zurg 04-04-2023 06:22 PM

I hope you'll be okay tomorrow, Ahimsa. I hope you can reach out to whomever feels safest if you need.

I hope Crookshanks Will be okay, Lindsay. I'm sure he has many more kitty years to live and demand cuddles for <3

Pineapple on pizza=epitome of universal food evolution!!! Ha!!! Jenna!!! In yo face!!!!

Jen, you have enlightened me to the Well hidden truth that almost anything vegetable wise can go on pizza!!! Yay!!! :D

one_step_closer 04-04-2023 06:46 PM

Do you have favourite pizza toppings, Kat?

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 06:56 PM

I'm thinking I may go to Asda and get a pizza before I go read the pub quiz tonight.

It's just one of the unwritten rules of RYL to try to start aggro about pineapple on pizza wherever possible!

Pi.R^2 04-04-2023 10:06 PM

I just went to link you all to the dramatic pineapple on pizza threads from The Good Old Days but both have been deleted so only I can enjoy them!!

Cacoethes 04-04-2023 10:16 PM

Pineapple belongs on pizza

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 10:40 PM

I got Asda pizza.

They have pineapple on them.

Ahimsa 04-04-2023 10:52 PM

I gave in to some urges earlier :( I'm okay though now.

I've put fresh bedding on so even though tomorrow is THE BAD ANNIVERSARY I will at least wake up cosy.

tamobhuuta 05-04-2023 11:24 AM

I put fresh bedding on too!

Good morning.

one_step_closer 05-04-2023 01:28 PM

Afternoon everyone. Sunday is RYL bedding change day but I will let you both off.

I'm thinking about you Ahimsa, please take care of yourself.

Are you doing anything today, Tamo?

long road 05-04-2023 02:51 PM

Afternoon Everyone,

I slept in later today, needed it though.
Got roleplaying later, we just levelled up.

Ahimsa 05-04-2023 02:55 PM

I'll be at work on Sunday though.

I'm okay, as I can be. I'm upset and angry and hurt. My cats are looking after me.

tamobhuuta 05-04-2023 04:20 PM

I went Easter egg shopping for my family.

one_step_closer 05-04-2023 04:30 PM

I hope you had a good sleep and it has helped, Jen. Enjoy your roleplaying. :)

I hope you're being kind to yourself and dealing with things as safely as you can, Ahimsa.

How many eggs did you need to buy, Tamo? Did you get one for yourself? I love Easter eggs.

tamobhuuta 05-04-2023 04:57 PM

3 eggs but normal choccies for N who doesn't want to be overwhelmed by chocolate, and L who prefers Ferrero Rocher!

one_step_closer 05-04-2023 05:03 PM

Ferrero Rocher are yum. I like the white ones with the coconut too.

tamobhuuta 05-04-2023 05:04 PM

I hate them!

one_step_closer 05-04-2023 05:06 PM

Oh no, that is not right! How is that even possible? :laugh:

Ahimsa 05-04-2023 05:41 PM

I'm going to redo my hot water bottle and make hot chocolate

long road 05-04-2023 06:10 PM

I accidentally had a nap. It was a nice nap but I didn't plan on it.

I ordered Easter eggs on my shop earlier in the week but they didn't arrive :(

Hope your hot chocolate and hot water bottle helps at least a tiny bit Ahimsa

tamobhuuta 05-04-2023 07:11 PM

I was feeling urghly so I wrapped up in my weighted blanket with tea and safe bear.

Ahimsa 05-04-2023 09:06 PM

Does safe bear have a name Tamo?

Im going out tomorrow night with some work friends, my "safe person" is likely not going now because shes unwell.

tamobhuuta 06-04-2023 10:31 AM

His name is Crumpet. This Christmas he will be 20.

How do you feel about going out Ahimsa?

Morning guys!

Zurg 06-04-2023 10:48 AM

Morning Tamo.

I spent yesterday playing with mini humans all afternoon. I was all used up when i Got home.
Just been to the flower shop around the corner to get an Easter plant/flower for my mum. I also have a chocolate Easter bunny for my brother.

I hope you're okay, Ahimsa. Do you want to go out still even though your friend is ill???

What are you up to today, Tamo??

tamobhuuta 06-04-2023 10:56 AM

Did you find nice things?

I don't know what I'm doing. There's the Maundy Thursday mass this evening but I don't know if I'll be awake enough and be able to cope with the people, it will probably be busy.

Zurg 06-04-2023 11:04 AM

Yeah, i found a nice Easter decoration with some pretty flowers in it. A bit more expensive than i planned but i hope i'll manage :)

I haven't been to church in a very long time. I'm really terrible at getting up in the morning and have been so for a long, long time. Most of the ceremonies start at 10 am sunday morning and it seems impossible to both get up and get ready in time. Or maybe i'm just a bit pathetic….
Today's ceremony is at night. I have never been on this day and i feel a bit anxious so i'm probably staying at home. I used to go on good friday but it always makes me feel so sad. The entire ordeal with the death of Jesus is very sad and i end up trying to concentrate really hard so i won't cry….

tamobhuuta 06-04-2023 11:16 AM

It's ok to cry :)

I can't get up in time for morning services either, my usual Sunday service is at 5pm!

one_step_closer 06-04-2023 02:01 PM

Hey everyone.

I hope if you choose to go out or not, Ahisma, it's the right decision for you.

I've never heard of a bear called Crumpet, tamo! It's made me want crumpets but don't worry, I won't eat your bear.

Did you get any Easer things for yourself, Kat? I sent my brother an Easter egg from Amazon but he wasn't in and they left it with a neighbour. The neighbour wasn't in when my brother went to get it so I hope he has it now and the neighbour didn't decide to nosey at what it was and eat it.
