Morning tamobhuuta how are you?

tamobhuuta 14-05-2024 11:08 AM

I'm ok thanks, just having a cup of tea after mass. It's quite sticky outside, I was too warm in my coat which I'd worn because I was promised torrential rain! How are you?

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 11:23 AM

I am sad because my replacement TV box (the other one packed up the other day) hasn't arrived :-( . It might come tomorrow but it was supposed to come today. So am annoyed at Royal Mail. I have no plans for today so I could have spent today setting it up.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2024 11:33 AM

That's very annoying. What will you do instead?!

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 11:37 AM

I am going to watch TV on my phone. If masterchef is available on iplayer then I will watch it.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2024 11:40 AM

Enjoy! I'm going to find police shows to watch - and doctors of course! I might do some painting.

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 11:44 AM

What you thinking of painting?

tamobhuuta 14-05-2024 12:05 PM

I'm working on Jesus going into hell...

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 12:08 PM


one_step_closer 14-05-2024 12:31 PM

Hi everyone.

I had to wear a jacket out too, Tamo. It was hot but raining a little. There's lots of police shows on at the moment.

Maybe your delivery will arrive later on today, Dawn. Sometimes here there is a separate delivery time for some things.

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 01:51 PM

Probably not because the tracking doesn't say it's out for delivery Lindsay. It hasn't even reached the local delivery office :-(

one_step_closer 14-05-2024 02:58 PM

That's annoying. I had that with a delivery company called XDP or something like that. My parcel was meant to be delivered on the 3rd of this month but on the 3rd it was still at the carrier facility being processed.

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 03:56 PM

It has come. Just that Royal Mail hadn't updated their tracking. Came about 3 pm and it's taken me all this time to get it setup and sign into the various apps. Made sure it worked by briefly watching Keeping Up Appearances. :-D

one_step_closer 14-05-2024 03:58 PM

That's good, Dawn. I'm glad you didn't have to wait any longer.

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 04:01 PM

So am I. It is a recordable box so the only thing I have left to do is test the recording capabilities.

one_step_closer 14-05-2024 05:33 PM

Can't you just watch things on catch up players?

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 05:35 PM

I watch Challenge a lot and that's not available on catchup. Also I can't stand adverts and with the exception of iplayer there's adverts on catchup.

one_step_closer 14-05-2024 05:37 PM

Oh right. What sort of shows are on Challenge?

not_so_insig 14-05-2024 06:13 PM

Quiz shows and gameshows. For example bullseye and blockbusters.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2024 07:31 PM

Hurray for TV box!

I finished my painting :)

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 06:56 AM

Morning everyone. Unusually I get the first post of the morning!

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 07:22 AM

Morning osc! I thought I would be first to post. how come you're here so early?

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 07:29 AM

I was in a&e last night and got home at 1.10am but couldn't sleep so I just got up just before 6am.

How are you today? What are your plans?

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 08:05 AM

Sorry about your trip. I'm glad you're physically ok. I've read your rv. I hope CMHT call. I'm ok thanks, got therapy later, not sure if it's the last one.

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 09:14 AM

Thanks, Tamo. Has the therapy helped you? Do you think when it finishes you will be able to continue with the techniques etc that you have learned?

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 11:43 AM

I'm not sure, it's all gone very fast!

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 11:43 AM

Yeah it was fast. How many sessions will you have had in total?

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 11:46 AM

About 5? And I think that was more than it was meant to too!

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 11:48 AM

Wow that's really short term.

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 11:50 AM

She's talked about modules so I don't know if there are more modules to come...

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 11:55 AM

Make sure you ask her any questions you have.

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 12:14 PM

Yeah I will. It's beautifully sunny here, what's it like there?

not_so_insig 15-05-2024 12:34 PM

Afternoon all.

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 12:53 PM

It's a mix of sunshine and grey clouds here.

Hi Dawn, how are you?

not_so_insig 15-05-2024 12:58 PM

Apart from being sneezy I am ok thanks Lindsay. Bit wondering what to do with myself as other than wash my hair and putting the rubbish out i have no plans.

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 12:59 PM

Hi insig, how are you? How's your weather?

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 02:09 PM

I'm a bit stuck with what to do with myself too, Dawn. I've just been sitting staring into space for a while.

not_so_insig 15-05-2024 02:33 PM

I have just finished my book. Now to decide what book to start on next.

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 03:10 PM

Did you enjoy the book? Do you know what you might want to read next?

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 03:25 PM

Hi guys. What kind of books do you like insig? Sorry you're struggling osc. Therapy was good but has left me feeling vulnerable.

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 04:10 PM

Do you have techniques to use when you feel vulnerable?

not_so_insig 15-05-2024 04:21 PM

Yes I gave it 5 stars on good reads. I don't know whether to continue the series (it's part of a series) or start on a completely different genre.

Tamobhuuta I will pm you because if I answer the question on a public forum it will link me to here.

tamobhuuta 15-05-2024 06:14 PM

Osc I had a cup of tea with my dad, that helped. How's your day going?

one_step_closer 15-05-2024 09:14 PM

That sounds like a good tactic. I'm glad you know things that help. I've been watching some TV that I usually like but I'm too low to enjoy things at the moment. Will need to go offline soon to have a period of no screens before bed.

tamobhuuta 16-05-2024 08:18 AM

Morning everyone.

not_so_insig 16-05-2024 09:32 AM

Morning tamobhuuta how are you?

one_step_closer 16-05-2024 12:41 PM

Afternoon everyone.

How are you Tamo and Dawn?

not_so_insig 16-05-2024 02:06 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay for asking. Slowly trying to clean my flat and waiting for a delivery.

one_step_closer 16-05-2024 02:07 PM

You do a lot of cleaning and waiting for deliveries!

not_so_insig 16-05-2024 02:23 PM

I am a messy person!
