Eska 25-03-2018 09:05 PM

Hi Lorraine and Aubergine, how’s it going?

not_so_insig 25-03-2018 09:07 PM

Hi there

Sketchy 25-03-2018 09:21 PM

Hi Eska. Hi Dawn. How are you both?

I’m ok thanks. Just watching some tv before bed.

Pomegranate 25-03-2018 09:35 PM

Hey, how is everyone?

Eska 25-03-2018 09:45 PM

I’m a bit meh but never mind.

How about you, Emma? Are you home now?

Pomegranate 25-03-2018 09:47 PM

Yeah, home thanks- finally.

Any reason for feeling meh?

Sketchy 25-03-2018 10:03 PM

Sorry you are feeling meh Eska. I hope things get better for you.

Hi Emma. Bet you are glad to be home.

Buttons. 25-03-2018 10:04 PM

Sorry you're feeling meh Eska *hugs*

Glad you're home Emma :)

I just woke up after a post pizza nap which convinced me thoroughly not to do so again-had a dream in which I had to use hamsters to smuggle pizza into Switzerland 0.o

chinahorse 25-03-2018 10:21 PM

Oh wow Buttons!! You literally couldn't make that up! :-P

Buttons. 25-03-2018 10:24 PM

Ha ha Lillie I can imagine the film version now 'hamsters on a plane'

Pomegranate 25-03-2018 10:25 PM

I’m sure I’ve seen worse films!

Buttons. 25-03-2018 10:39 PM

*now slightly determined to make this film happen*

chinahorse 25-03-2018 10:43 PM

I can totally help you to find suitable erm actress hamsters

Buttons. 25-03-2018 10:52 PM

Well so long as they're not diva hamsters :P

chinahorse 25-03-2018 11:00 PM

Of course not! Thats why we will hold casting calls.

Buttons. 25-03-2018 11:02 PM

If I have only one reason to live it is now to watch hamster auditions, including but not limited to sneaking slices of margherita pizza past security onto a plane-with style.

chinahorse 25-03-2018 11:06 PM


pizza talk makes me think I should probably cook and eat something more than a slice of unicorn birthday cake and wonder if I have a frozen one in

Buttons. 25-03-2018 11:18 PM

That sounds like a good plan Lillie.

chinahorse 25-03-2018 11:55 PM

Well I have one in but no motivation to consume it. So I had some more cake, tomatoes and a toaster breakfast muffin. Highly balanced :P carbs, fats, more carbs, sugars which are carbs, and a smittence of vitamins :P

Eska 26-03-2018 08:39 AM

Morning people :)

Buttons. 26-03-2018 09:18 AM

Morning Eska how are you?

Eska 26-03-2018 10:37 AM

I may have just fallen back asleep for a bit...

I'm ok. Watching the formula 1 from yesterday. How about you?

not_so_insig 26-03-2018 11:24 AM

Morning all.

Eska 26-03-2018 12:03 PM

Hi Dawn, how are you?

not_so_insig 26-03-2018 12:22 PM

I am ok thanks Eska. I am watching the kitties inspect the new scratching post.

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 02:05 PM

Afternoon everybody!

Buttons. 26-03-2018 02:13 PM

Afternoon :)

chinahorse 26-03-2018 02:14 PM

What's everyone up to?

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 02:23 PM

Just sat at home waiting for CC to call me back- if she remembers lol.


not_so_insig 26-03-2018 02:30 PM

Hello all.

chinahorse 26-03-2018 02:42 PM

Got cc number to give her a nudge? I swear I kow your name but I don't know if you go by your name pomegranate??

Up to much Dawn?

I've just made a cuppa to have with my unicorn cake and put my thermostat in the fridge so my heating comes on without me having to alter it lol.

not_so_insig 26-03-2018 02:45 PM

I am not dressed yet but just had a knock on the door. Turns out it was the meter reader man. Talk about totes awks!

chinahorse 26-03-2018 02:47 PM

It won't be anything they haven't seen before lol!

But you have your meters externally read?! I currently have to read my own and then in May I'm getting ones put in that read themselves.

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 02:50 PM

You’re very brave Dawn. I don’t answer my door lol

Already called her Lillie but she said she was too busy to talk and would call me back so fingers crossed. My name’s Emma :-p

chinahorse 26-03-2018 02:50 PM

See I knew that!

not_so_insig 26-03-2018 02:52 PM

Yep I get them read once a year. I really don't want smart meters because I know that it will trigger my paranoia on a really bad day because I know that they send signals. So I am avoiding having them put in as much as possible.

I had a delivery today so bang goes my day of seeing nobody. I am stressed because of too much people.

chinahorse 26-03-2018 03:27 PM

Does it help to think that both people you're seeing dawn are people you literally don't have to talk to if you don't want?

Ah I see emma. Maybe give it till like an hour before she goes home and if she still hasn't called back then call again? In the meantime anything we can do to help?

Buttons. 26-03-2018 03:31 PM

Well done for dealing Dawn, know it can be hard.

Emma hope you get a ring back.

My CPN was supposed to ring today according to home treatment team who I rang over the weekend and won't be ringing again as the woman said and I quote 'so you're sad your dog died...well at least it's replacable' 0.o I keep thinking my CPN who I like and who does care will ring me when people says she will but she is very busy and I'm probably not a priority so...

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 03:34 PM

That’s annoying Dawn.

No but thanks Lillie. Not even sure what she can do or what I want from her but several different people have suggested I need to speak to her.

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 03:34 PM

That’s horrible Buttons!! Will you phone your CPN if she doesn’t call?

Buttons. 26-03-2018 03:42 PM

Yeah. I won't bother calling. There's no point.

Anyhoo on a more cheerful note it is properly warm here despite the forecast being bad so quite grateful for that!

not_so_insig 26-03-2018 03:52 PM

That is horrible Buttons. Some people don't get that pets are part of the family. Besides you might not want another dog as it took my neighbour 3 years to get another after her dog died.

Buttons. 26-03-2018 03:54 PM

Exactly. If I do get another dog it would deliberately not be like her, because I can't stand the thought of replacing her. Also the fact that they called her an 'it' she wasn't an it she was a beautiful female dog with a beautiful personality called Lady and she's not a ****ing 'it' *breathes*

Buttons. 26-03-2018 03:54 PM

Anyway, nice weather yeah? :P

chinahorse 26-03-2018 04:08 PM

Oh buttons *squishies* Lady was just as you described her. And it's an absolutely awful thing. I'd have a mind to complain about the HTT person.
I would gently poke you to call your cpn. You are under her for your mh support so she needs to provide that.

Ah I see Emma. Well maybe ask them next time?
What're you up to now anyways?

It's that usual dingy grey here where the sea and sky are the same colour. And I have the heating on all day for laundry drying purposes mostly.

Buttons. 26-03-2018 04:20 PM

Well at least for once the North West wins on good weather :P

chinahorse 26-03-2018 04:42 PM

Rare. Very rare!!

I don't know if I want to read or watch a dvd.

Buttons. 26-03-2018 05:28 PM


Hmm I know that feeling. Maybe think of the genre you most want and go with which book/film goes with that?

chinahorse 26-03-2018 05:36 PM

Hmm yeah- may have to be a film, im a bit tired to read. my err 3-4 hours sleep in my armchair is catching up with me.

Pomegranate 26-03-2018 06:16 PM

My CC just turned up! Nearly had a heart attack. She was here an hour and a half though.
