Morning everyone.

Vets are expensive, they should be less so because we are trying to look after our pets.

Hope you get on ok today, Beckie.

I am still thinking yuck to fruit toast even though I have never tried it. Do you put any kind of spread on it?

Hi Dawn and Tamo, how are you both?

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 11:44 AM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. Waiting for a parcel however.

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 11:55 AM

Something exciting? When is it due?

long road 08-11-2023 11:57 AM

I put butter on it like a toasted tea cake.

I too am waiting fora parcel, have a new balnket arriving today

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 11:58 AM

What's the blanket like? Hope it's nice and cosy.

long road 08-11-2023 12:03 PM

Its a purple, white and green large check pattern. Colours kind of remind me of moorland with the heather. And should be fluffy and cosy. It's made of polyester as I am allergic to wool.

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 12:25 PM

Sounds nice. Where did you buy it from? I have a Goosebumps blanket that my brother bought me for Christmas one time.

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 12:27 PM

I am expecting a Yankee candle and a Yankee advent calender Lindsay. I am not sure when it's coming as the tracking says 8.30 to 10.20. Whether that's am or pm idk. If it's am then it's terribly late. It's coming via ups which I don't have much faith about.

long road 08-11-2023 12:59 PM

I bought it from John Lewis but it's from a company called Radley. I have one blanket already but wanted another for extra cosyness.

long road 08-11-2023 01:52 PM

I am watching classic doctor who. All the old episodes are on iPlayer because of the 60th anniversary.

tamobhuuta 08-11-2023 02:15 PM

How are you finding the classics? I tried 1 on dvd but I moved too slowly for me and I couldn't hear the speech properly.

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 02:59 PM

My parcel has just come!

I quite like classic Doctor Who. My favourite Doctor is Peter Davison.

long road 08-11-2023 03:09 PM

I have the subtitles on to help with working out what they are saying. Not the biggest fan of the first doctor as I find he can be a bit devious and a bit misogynous (but I suppose that is the programme showing it was made in the sixties) but still finding it fun to watch. Especially if I don't take it seriously.

I have had my parcel too, my new blanket is super soft

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 03:20 PM

Aww that's good it's soft Jen.

Don't forget that it's ryl bin night. My council went on strike for 9 weeks. They collected everything last week but that was a one off. Trouble is they're back to their usual rota but idk if they're collecting the ordinary bins or not this week #confused.com

long road 08-11-2023 03:21 PM

It's very warm too. I am snuggled under it just now.

Not bin night for me. My bins are collected.on Fridays. Could you check the internet Dawn? My council has the bin rota online.

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 04:07 PM

Last time I looked they didn't have any rotas online. However someone has posted on the local Facebook page and it's ordinary bin day tomorrow as well as recycling.

not_so_insig 08-11-2023 04:38 PM

Made a scary phone call.

Cacoethes 08-11-2023 04:45 PM

Sent a scary email

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 05:06 PM

Went to a scary appointment.

Hope all peoples fears were worth it!

Cacoethes 08-11-2023 05:12 PM

I also went to scary appointments!

A terrifying day for us all!
Hope yours went ok lindsay

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 05:17 PM

It was alright.

What are you doing now?

Cacoethes 08-11-2023 05:20 PM

I'm watching doctor who

one_step_closer 08-11-2023 05:22 PM

I am not watching Doctor Who! Never have.

Cacoethes 08-11-2023 05:26 PM

I love doctor who!

What are you up to?

tamobhuuta 08-11-2023 05:53 PM

Well done on scarey things everyone.

long road 08-11-2023 05:58 PM

Well done for facing up to the scary things everyone.

I have spent my afternoon hiding from the world on my sofa. I have watched a lot of classic doctor who. And made myself massala chai using sticky chai (black tea, spices and honey) and milk. It was delicious!

Cacoethes 08-11-2023 06:46 PM

Thanks guys!

That does sound delicious jen!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2023 08:03 PM

Gotta love chai.

long road 08-11-2023 08:16 PM

I got it from a fancy tea shop called bird and blend. I made a bit of a mess making it though! Didn't have a tea strainer so had to use my big sieve and spilt a bit!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2023 09:26 PM

Oops! I've heard of them, apparently they're very ethical? Or is that someone else?

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 07:00 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 09-11-2023 09:53 AM

Morning all. I have covid jab today. That makes the third jab in less than a week. Thankfully I am not due my depot otherwise it would make it 4!

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 10:34 AM

I have a psych appointment today

one_step_closer 09-11-2023 01:01 PM

Afternoon everyone. Hope your jab goes ok, Dawn. Hope your appointment goes well, Beckie.

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 01:28 PM

Appointment was fairly pointless!
I'm having a baileys hot chocolate at work now

How are you lindsay?

tamobhuuta 09-11-2023 01:54 PM

Good choice of beverage Cacoethes.

long road 09-11-2023 02:14 PM

Hey everyone!

How are you doing?

I am finding things a bit tricky.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2023 03:38 PM

That's not good. Can we help or do you need serious board help?

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 04:51 PM

Thank you tamo!
It was delicious

Sorry to hear you're struggling jen

one_step_closer 09-11-2023 04:53 PM

Glad you enjoyed the hot chocolate, Beckie. That's a shame you felt the appointment was pointless. I call those appointments DISappointments.

Sorry you're having a hard time, Jen.

Have you been doing anything nice, Tamo?

I'm just trying to be ok as usual.

tamobhuuta 09-11-2023 05:09 PM

The voices came back so we had an argument and I cried and had prn. Fun times.

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 05:09 PM

Lol at disappointments!
That's brilliant! XD

one_step_closer 09-11-2023 05:14 PM

That must have been so distressing, Tamo. How are you now?

I do very much like my term of DISappointments!

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 05:23 PM

May have to steal it lindsay :tongue2:

Hope the prn helps tamo

tamobhuuta 09-11-2023 05:59 PM

The prn is helping :)

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 06:03 PM


long road 09-11-2023 06:47 PM

Hey sorry I disappeared.

I rang a helpline around 3pm but while on the phone to them had a seizure and so after I came to and said goodbye I had a big long nap as was shattered.

Might post more on serious board not sure.

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 06:56 PM

Im at taekwondo.
The amount of people that leave their cars idling is ridiculous
So bad for the environment

long road 09-11-2023 07:10 PM

That is bad. Are they in the cars waiting on people?

Cacoethes 09-11-2023 07:30 PM

Yes they were waiting for the other class to get out
And some waiting to go in but not wanting to stand outside for 2 minutes.

Anyway. I have been banned until i get a drs letter. So *thumbs up emoji*
