it's one of those subscription mystery boxes you get, I ordered myself the gaming one cos this months one has stuff from DOOM and metal gear solid in it :-D

Eska 30-09-2018 06:40 PM

Sounds fun!

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 06:55 PM

Loot crate sounds awesome!!

one_step_closer 30-09-2018 07:06 PM


You have all had very day like days.

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 07:09 PM

What have you been up to Lindsay?

zombiehunter 30-09-2018 07:10 PM

hi OSC :-D

Eska 30-09-2018 07:10 PM

I haven't had a very day-like day... I've mostly been on the sofa.

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 07:31 PM

Thats what sundays are for!

Eska 30-09-2018 07:34 PM

Good good

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 07:47 PM

I'm quite chilly!

nonperson 30-09-2018 08:21 PM

Me too. Cat's hogging the blanket though. =(

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 08:23 PM

Oh no!!

nonperson 30-09-2018 08:33 PM

Might be able to tease a corner of it out from underneath him. =P

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 08:33 PM

Cats really do rule the world!

nonperson 30-09-2018 08:53 PM

I wish that was really true. A cat world would be just perfect for me.

Cacoethes 30-09-2018 08:57 PM

I prefer dogs over cats but a cat world would be fine with me also!!

nonperson 30-09-2018 09:03 PM

I think a dog world would just be chaos. They wouldn't know what to do unless someone was telling them. Cats have the smarts to organise a world all by themselves. =P

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 09:23 AM

Thats true np!

Morning everyone.
I am tired!

Eska 01-10-2018 10:06 AM

Morning Beckie! Did you not sleep well?

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 10:14 AM

Nope. Kept waking up and not being able to get back to sleep.
On way to clozapine clinic but my bus apparently left 10 mins early so we all missed it!
Could have got another bus if I'd known earlier!
But now have to wait for the next, slower bus.

Eska 01-10-2018 11:32 AM

Oh, that all sounds frustrating! Did you manage to get there ok?

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 01:58 PM

Yep. I was 40 mins late but the nurses didn't mind. They are pretty chill!
Just home and had lunch.
Will go to the pool later.

How are you eska?

Eska 01-10-2018 02:27 PM

Aw that's good of them.

Enjoy your swimming!

I'm a bit stressed out by flat stuff. It's supposed to all be getting sorted out today but I don't know whether it will be.

one_step_closer 01-10-2018 02:47 PM


I hope you have a good swim Beckie.

Eska, hope things with the flat get sorted. Stuff like that is very stressful.

I went to a relaxation group. I knew I would hate it but I went because my CPN wants me to try more things. Really don't think I'll go back. Formal relaxation and socialisation is not for me. I was too panicky to do anything.

Eska 01-10-2018 04:24 PM

It is stressful indeed! I didn't hear anything from my solicitor for most of the day and was on the point of calling to find out what was going on when they emailed me.

Lindsay, that sounds hard and I don't think it's something I would enjoy either! I think you should be proud of yourself for going all the same though, you gave yourself an opportunity to see what it was like and that's a good thing.

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 04:59 PM

Back from my swim!

Flat stuff van be very stressful
Hope it gets sorted soon!

I hate that sort of thing too Lindsay
Well done for giving it a go though!

nonperson 01-10-2018 05:55 PM

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 06:04 PM

Hey np
How are you?

nonperson 01-10-2018 06:29 PM

I'm... cold and a bit tense. =/


one_step_closer 01-10-2018 06:34 PM

Is the weather cold there today? It's very cold here again. What's making you feel tense?

nonperson 01-10-2018 06:36 PM

It's been sunny but gets really cold in the evenings now. I do have a window open though! Cant be arsed to get up and close it. =P

And ugh, just work stuff is making me tense. Lots of organising and contacting people to do... Struggling to switch off. =/

How are you?

one_step_closer 01-10-2018 06:41 PM

Is there a spell for closing windows? You should probably get up and close it before the room becomes an igloo or something.

Is this stuff you have to do tomorrow? Could you make a written list and then try and put it to the side?

I'm ok. Feeling confused about the days recently, the weekend especially didn't feel like the weekend. I think I might have been a bit more busy or something. I have a bit more on this week than I usually have.

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 06:41 PM

I am cold too!
Going to make a hot chocolate.

Sounds stressful np.
Anything that usually helps you relax?

one_step_closer 01-10-2018 06:44 PM

Mmm hot chocolate. Do you have the normal stuff or some kind of special flavour?

nonperson 01-10-2018 06:47 PM

I make lists at work so I've left them there but still can't switch off. Weirdly enough there is something else happening tomorrow that is going to be stressful but that's not what I'm currently tense about, grr. Might go upstairs, get changed and play some piano before putting dinner on.

Hope you can find some time between the busy bits to have some time to relax, Lindsay.

Mmm, hot chocolate.

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 06:47 PM

I have a peanut butter one to try that my mum gave me. She didn't like it so I'm hoping it tastes ok!
I also have normal hot chocolate if I don't like it

Eska 01-10-2018 07:12 PM

Peanut butter hot chocolate sounds weird. Then again I have rocky road hot chocolate and it's great!

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 07:16 PM

It was a bit strange
Not a fan
Back to my normal hot chocolate!
Rocky road sounds nice!

Eska 01-10-2018 07:19 PM

It really is, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 07:24 PM

Well, another pair of leggings have bitten the dust!
I think I'm only down to one or two pairs now which is bad because I wear leggings literally every day :ermm:

zombiehunter 01-10-2018 07:30 PM

that's what you get for wearing leggings, wear baggy jeans instead :-p

Eska 01-10-2018 07:32 PM

Oh no! That's sad Beckie :( I have a couple of pairs of leggings I hope will last a long time and a third pair that was cheap and is already giving up. I would be very upset if they all wore out. I can totally understand wearing them every day! Don't think I could get away with it at work though sadly.

Eska 01-10-2018 07:32 PM

Zombie where do you even find baggy jeans these days?

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 07:38 PM

I love leggings! They are so comfy!
I am too fat to wear jeans comfortably :p
I should invest in some better quality leggings

one_step_closer 01-10-2018 07:42 PM

Do you wear something on top of your leggings though? I always imagine leggings not to be very warm.

nonperson 01-10-2018 07:46 PM

Leggings are too tight. =/

Cacoethes 01-10-2018 07:49 PM

I have one pair that are quite thick with a soft inside. I should get more of them, they are warm!
I don't notice the cold in them.

one_step_closer 01-10-2018 07:52 PM

Yeah leggings do look very tight. I always wear jeans except at the gym when I wear joggers.

Eska 01-10-2018 07:56 PM

Beckie I can recommend Underarmour and North Face for good quality plain black leggings. In fact I am wearing a TNF pair right now!

I don't wear leggings with just tshirts but with longer shirts/long jumper/short ish dresses, if that makes sense?

nonperson 01-10-2018 07:59 PM

I spend a lot of time in joggers nowadays... Much more comfy for lounging around the house in than jeans. I'm turning into a proper chav. =/
