Thanks. How’s your evening going Beckie?

not_so_insig 21-04-2018 10:57 PM

Hello everybody

Cacoethes 21-04-2018 11:12 PM

Not great
I want to sleep and yet I cannot sleep!

Pomegranate 21-04-2018 11:19 PM

Urgh, hate night like that. Relaxation apps can be quite helpful though if drugs aren’t working. Any ideas why you can’t sleep?

Had salad- was awesome. Just rubbed the cat with ice cubes....my flat is soooo sticky and baking. Leo just lay there purring and nudging the ice!

Cacoethes 21-04-2018 11:32 PM

I'll try a relaxation app.
I've had sleeping pills but they don't seem to have had an effect!
I'm quite restless and fidgety so i think that's why.
Might go and ask for some lorazepam

Glad you enjoyed your salad!

Naww bless him!
I wish I had some ice cubes! :p

nonperson 22-04-2018 03:27 AM

Not sure what my cat would think about having ice cubes rubbed on him. Good idea though. =o

Buttons. 22-04-2018 03:54 AM

Ha ha I think my dog would lose her mind with ice cubes.

chinahorse 22-04-2018 09:25 AM

Apparently freezing some of their treats or broth and giving them to your pet is a good when it's hot. Though it's not hot here at all anymore. :(

I did sit outside having cocktails last night which was lush. Felt like being on holiday.

nonperson 22-04-2018 10:51 AM

Yeah I used to freeze watered down dog gravy into ice cubes for my puppydog. =) Don't think the cat would be too impressed with that sort of thing though.

Glad you enjoyed your holiday-like cocktails. =P

one_step_closer 22-04-2018 11:30 AM

It's raining here. I miss the sun already.

What are you all getting up to today?

nonperson 22-04-2018 11:38 AM

Morning Lindsay.

We had some rain over night but it's sunny again today but not nearly as hot as it has been.

Just chores today for me - laundry, food shopping and gonna go mow the lawn in a moment. =/

What about you?

chinahorse 22-04-2018 12:05 PM

Boo to boring chores NP. I need to clean the rest of my house today too so I feel you. But that can wait. I've just washed and put on clean jarmies and may have a nap :-P

I miss the sun too lindsay :( why does it always come when I'm mostly at work?!

nonperson 22-04-2018 12:13 PM

You can both have my sun, I don't want it!

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 12:56 PM

There was loads of rain last night but it's back to being boiling hot again!

nonperson 22-04-2018 01:17 PM

It's hotter than I thought outside.... =(

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 01:23 PM

I’m staying indoors today I think. Dehumidifier is definitely helping with stickiness.

How’s everyone’s day going?

nonperson 22-04-2018 01:39 PM

My house is quite cool, luckily. It has big thick old walls keeping the heat out.

Day's going ok, mowed lawn, done laundry and fed the birds and pheasant. Just got to shower and do food shopping now - the hardest bits. =(

How's your day going? Just staying in hiding from the heat today?

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 02:23 PM

I'm also staying indoors today!
The lounge door is open so theres quite a nice breeze

Sounds productive nonperson!

I am hiding from heat too.
Don't really know what to do with myself!

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 02:43 PM

My dad just asked me to go round his- declined.

Glad you’ve got a breeze Beckie

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 02:43 PM

That sounds really productive NP! Well done.

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 02:44 PM

Sunday's are for relaxing, not peopling!
Not surprised you declined Emma

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 02:53 PM

Exactly! I’m all peopled out. Would be nice if ‘normal’ people understood the impact of peopling! :-p

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 03:07 PM

Would make things a lot simpler!

one_step_closer 22-04-2018 03:10 PM

I'm cold, I will have all of your sun!

I'm glad you were able to say no to your Dad, Emma. We need to figure out a strong definition of the effects of peopling.

Aubergine 22-04-2018 03:14 PM

Ugh. Peopling. :P

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 03:15 PM

Hi Lindsey, hi Aubergine :-)

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 03:18 PM

*sends sun to Lindsay*

Peopling is hard!

nonperson 22-04-2018 04:30 PM

Chores all done for the day!

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 04:33 PM

Well done :-)

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 04:34 PM

Well done!!

nonperson 22-04-2018 04:36 PM

Well, still a few bits to do but all the horrible outside tasks have been achieved.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 04:38 PM

Thats good!

I am doing nothing.
Not much goes on in hospital at the weekend

nonperson 22-04-2018 04:39 PM

Does much go on in the week?

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 04:47 PM

There are some groups going on during the week.
Yoga, art, DBT....
I keep meaning to go to them but sleep wins!

nonperson 22-04-2018 05:16 PM

Sleep always wins, and is probably just as good for you as yoga.

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 05:31 PM

Im not a big fan of yoga

Just had dinner.
It was satisfactory!
The meals kind of remind me of school dinners

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 05:35 PM

I never ate the ward food lol, unless it’s the pasta!

What was on the menu tonight?

chinahorse 22-04-2018 05:36 PM

Sleep is the best! Just had a 3 and a bit hour snooze :)

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 05:40 PM

That sounds epic!

nonperson 22-04-2018 05:43 PM

That's a full on sleep rather than a snooze, isn't it? =P

chinahorse 22-04-2018 05:43 PM

It totally was! I'm still sleepy though lol. But need to get up and cook some dinners for the week and at least dust and call my gran.

Why is life always so busy?!

Are you guys up to much?

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 05:48 PM

I’ve barely moved from the sofa today, although I really really need to clean and tidy (I didn’t do much the other day).

Poor Leo is still suffering with the heat :-(

Cacoethes 22-04-2018 05:50 PM

The food here is pretty good by hospital standards!
It was either a chicken thing, a salmon thing or quiche with a variety of potatos and veg. Mix and match kind of situation.
And date and apple crumble with custard.

That's quite a nap Lillie!
Hopefully you'll manage to get stuff done!

one_step_closer 22-04-2018 05:51 PM

I think we should all let the cleaning fairies do the work. I did a not so thorough job of the hoovering then changed my bedding.

I'm looking at a list of free Kindle books and saw a title called Scalping Is Fun and thought ????

I can't imagine heat right now.

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 05:51 PM

Hmmmm, that actually doesn’t sound too bad! There was a lot of mince based dishes the last few times I was in and they looked and tasted like crap!

one_step_closer 22-04-2018 05:53 PM

Beckie, at first I thought you were saying that your dinner was something where you couldn't really tell what it was just that it might have been chicken, salmon, or quiche!

chinahorse 22-04-2018 05:53 PM

If I get out of bed you have to get up from the sofa emma? We can do this!!

The food doesn't sound too bad beckie. Ar least there's options.

Pomegranate 22-04-2018 05:56 PM

How about I get up whilst I make dinner and hang up washing/do another load? :-p

Buttons. 22-04-2018 06:06 PM

Hospital food isn't that bad, I nearly always like the soup :)

one_step_closer 22-04-2018 06:08 PM

Pudding is the best though! Cake and custard.

How is your day going Buttons?
