I'm glad it was nice tamo

I'm probably going to do pharmacy tomorrow.
I'm absolutely shattered!
I would have gone straight from the station (halfway between mine and town) but pharmacy is closed between 1-2.

long road 01-02-2024 03:37 PM

I had a lovely time at the seaside. And had a takeaway coffee as well. The sound of the sea was very soothing.

Back home now and rather tired so about to attempt to nap.

Glad it was a good send off Tamo.

Make sure you rest and try and look after yourself Beckie!

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 03:50 PM

I'm glad you had a nice time jen :)

I'll try! I'm not good at resting XD

Elmer 01-02-2024 03:56 PM

Seaside sounds really lovely.

I hope you can manage at least some rest Beckie.

Hello :) just dropping in to say hi and that I hope you all find at least a little joy today. My little joy is the epic chocolate cake I baked for my housemate's birthday.

tamobhuuta 01-02-2024 04:02 PM

That is joyous!

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 04:34 PM

I went to the pharmacy and aldi because i got bored XD

Ooh that sounds delightful lio!

one_step_closer 01-02-2024 04:45 PM

I'm glad you got to the seaside, Jen. :)

Beckie, you just can't sit still can you? :laugh:

Glad the funeral was ok, Tamo.

Hi Lio, a chocolate cake is a wonderful thing!

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 04:47 PM

I can not XD
I have nothing else to do now until i go to L's tonight, so I'm sitting still now

Have you been up to much lindsay?

one_step_closer 01-02-2024 04:53 PM

What are you occupying your brain with? Are you doing anything special with L?

I've been doing some housework and reading.

Elmer 01-02-2024 05:01 PM

It is a delightful cake.

Glad you're sitting still for a bit now Beckie

I hope you're enjoying your book Lindsay, well done for housework :)

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 05:09 PM

Watching taskmaster from the start
Or half watching. I think i have slay-dhd ;p
Nothing special. Gonna tick off a movie from our list and just chill probably

Sounds like an ok day lindsay

I love cake

one_step_closer 01-02-2024 06:42 PM

I hope you had some of the cake, Lio.

How do you pick which film to watch, Beckie?

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 06:52 PM

We have a list of films. Usually we randomly talk about stuff which reminds us of films to watch!
So we just choose from those

one_step_closer 01-02-2024 06:53 PM

Is it a long list? I hope you enjoy today's choice.

Cacoethes 01-02-2024 07:01 PM

It's a fairly long list!
I think we're going to watch The Lorax tonight

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 08:04 AM

Morning everyone

long road 02-02-2024 10:27 AM

Morning Beckie!

Did you watch the Lorax last night or another film? What did you think of the film?

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 11:44 AM

Morning people, how are you?

long road 02-02-2024 12:08 PM

Morning Tamo!

I am not ok but I am trying to be ok

How are you?

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 12:14 PM

Hugs if wanted. I am ok, made myself get up at 9.15am, seeing my CPN at 2pm.

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 12:43 PM

Morning guys!

We did watch the lorax! Great film

Just back from my driving lesson. Now aldi and pharmacy.

Sorry to hear that jen

Hope it goes ok with cpn tamo

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 01:10 PM

How was the driving lesson? Have fun shopping.

one_step_closer 02-02-2024 01:14 PM

Hi everyone.

Glad you enjoyed the film, Beckie. Did you have a good driving lesson?

I hope you can feel better, Jen.

Hope it goes well with your CPN, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 01:44 PM

Thanks osc. How are you?

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 02:08 PM

Driving lesson was good thanks!
Got all my shopping done also.
Had to do asda and aldi.
Did asda first, then pharmacy and my meds were just being checked, so i said i needed to pop to aldi. Pharmacy L asked if i wanted to leave my other shopping there rather than drag it around aldi! She's so lovely!

How are you lindsay?

long road 02-02-2024 04:35 PM

Afternoon all.

Still finding things hard but maybe a little better than this morning. In waiting mode for a GP phone call that should be happening around 4:45-5pm

one_step_closer 02-02-2024 05:24 PM

Having good pharmacy people is always nice. :) Mine are lovely too.

Hope your call goes well, Jen.

What have you been up to, Tamo?

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 05:43 PM

Hope the phone call is helpful jen

I am extremely tired
Tried to nap but not happening. Can't pull myself out of bed though!
Got questionnaire through from the occupational health dr. The good old PHQ9 and GAD7. Haven't had to do those in a while XD
I'm showing up as 'moderate depression' and 'moderate anxiety'
Neither are accurate. The symptoms i ticked are definitely due to other things. There's lots of overlap.

What are you up to lindsay?

long road 02-02-2024 06:27 PM

Didn't find phonecall super helpful. GP is definitely in my corner though just not much he can do.

Not sure what to do now.

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 06:44 PM

That's a shame

one_step_closer 02-02-2024 06:49 PM

Even if you can't sleep rest is a good thing, Beckie.

Sorry to hear that, Jen.

I'm just internetting for a bit and then will watch some TV. There is a documentary about the real story behind the Amytiville (don't know how to spell) Horror on iplayer.

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 06:53 PM

Just wish i could sleep properly!
I usually sleep really well at L's. Until after 7am sometimes! But last night i didn't :(

That sounds interesting! Hope you enjoy it

one_step_closer 02-02-2024 06:56 PM

I don't understand how there are people who can fall asleep within 7 minutes or whatever and sleep through the whole night. That would be amazing!

You watching anything this evening?

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 07:18 PM

I've tried to do some work on an art project but spasming made it difficult. I'm really hoping the neurologist has some answers next week.

Cacoethes 02-02-2024 07:26 PM

That sounds like heaven tbh
I envy those people!
I'd really like to have a lovely long lie in! Until like 9 or 10. That would be amazing.

I'm watching taskmaster again!

Fingers crossed tamo!

tamobhuuta 02-02-2024 09:17 PM

*is one of those people*

Hope you're having good evenings. I'm getting anxious so I'm going to try to sleep.

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 07:41 AM

I am jealous tamo!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 03-02-2024 11:12 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 11:22 AM

I am feeling quite ill today unfortunately
I am completely wiped out. I managed to clean out the boys though.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-02-2024 12:06 PM

Sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself. I am ok, going to the Signed Mass at 1pm and big sis is coming over.

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 12:10 PM

Thank you
I'm trying but it's frustrating not doing anything!

I hope you enjoy mass and seeing your sister!

one_step_closer 03-02-2024 12:46 PM

Morning almost afternoon everyone.

Sorry you're not feeling well, Beckie. I hope you can find low energy things to keep you occupied and you feel better soon.

Enjoy your day, Tamo.

long road 03-02-2024 12:47 PM

Hey everyone!

I am having a rest day myself. FND has caught up with me.

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 12:48 PM

Hey lindsay

Thank you
Just watching taskmaster and dosing up on lemsip currently!

How are you? Any plans for today?

Sorry to hear that jen

one_step_closer 03-02-2024 12:55 PM

Hope your rest helps, Jen.

You seem to use Lemsip for everything, Beckie!

I'm still not good. Been to the chemist, washed my hair, and cleaned the kitchen although not very well.

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 12:59 PM

Because lemsip always clears things up waaay quicker than just using paracetamol or whatever

Well done for doing things!
Doesn't matter if cleaning isn't done very well, you've made an effort and that's what matters

one_step_closer 03-02-2024 01:02 PM


Lemsip tastes too disgusting for me to drink it.

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 01:05 PM

I don't mind the taste.
Worth it to feel better quicker!

one_step_closer 03-02-2024 01:08 PM

What's happening on Taskmaster?

Cacoethes 03-02-2024 01:18 PM

A lot! I'm on series 4 now, which is a good one. Noel fielding, mel giedroic (can't spell the last name!) Joe lycett, hugh dennis and lolly something...a good line up!
My favourite series is the one with jo brand and david baddiel though
