Yeah i get that
It is tough being a bit mentally spicy
Miss out on all sorts sometimes :(

Ahimsa 09-12-2023 09:51 PM

silly brain!

I mean I have tea and stollen and my cats so that's lovely!

How're you getting on Beckie? Was it nice with L today?

not_so_insig 09-12-2023 09:57 PM

I don't count each day it's just something that keeps me going Lindsay. But I find it helpful to know what day it is/what bills are going out. I got into debt many years ago so knowing how much I have to spend helpful to avoid going into debt.

Ahimsa 09-12-2023 09:57 PM

Hi Insig

not_so_insig 09-12-2023 09:59 PM

Hi Beth.

Ahimsa 09-12-2023 10:00 PM

How're you doing?

not_so_insig 09-12-2023 10:06 PM

I am ok thanks.

long road 09-12-2023 10:19 PM

The cats will see your tree Beth. And probably try and attack it XD

I don't have set favourite Christmas films. But I enjoy Home Alone, Muppets Christmas Carol, Polar Express etc. And i once watched a good but rather odd one where Whoopi Goldberg became Santa.

I like to watch the Inside the Factory Christmas Specials too.

Ahimsa 09-12-2023 10:20 PM

That film sounds a bit bonkers LR!

long road 09-12-2023 10:27 PM

Rather bonkers!

I just googled it to check I didnt dream it!

Ahimsa 10-12-2023 07:15 AM

Annoyingly I'm awake - I'm usually up at this time for work, but I'm not working today and can't get back to sleep. I'm exhausted though.

Morning anyone else who's awake.

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 09:13 AM

Morning beth
How're you doing? Apart from annoyed at being awake!

one_step_closer 10-12-2023 11:57 AM

Morning, Beth. I hope you're feeling better today. I'd love to see your tree if there is a way! I can't even have a tree because of Crookshanks which is annoying.

Hi, Beckie. How are you?

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 12:01 PM

Hey lindsay!
How are you this morning?

I'm ok. Tired!
And hoping to get out alone today.
They said yes, but they have to double check notes or something.
Fingers crossed!

one_step_closer 10-12-2023 12:03 PM

I'll keep my brain fingers crossed for you as long as you are going to do sensible things while you are out if they let you. *waggles finger*

I'm not sure how I am other than needing a pee! Will have to disturb Crookshanks who is on my lap as usual.

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 12:06 PM

Thank you!
Just want to go to tesco! Nothing nefarious XD

Well, yes, sounds like you have to move him in that situation!

Ahimsa 10-12-2023 12:32 PM

I got back to sleep, yay!

I'm going to meet my best friends new baby today, he's 11 days old - and I've known my friend 20 years, we went to school together so thats super exciting! What has everyone else got planned?

OSC, are you on Facebook? I can send you photos?

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 12:59 PM

Sounds like a good day planned beth! And yay for sleep!
Hope you have a good day

I pestered my way off the ward.
Annoying people into submission really does work XD

Ahimsa 10-12-2023 01:06 PM

Yay for being annoying!!

long road 10-12-2023 01:44 PM


Good pester power there Beckie!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 01:54 PM

Good afternoon everyone. Well done on getting back to sleep and annoying staff respectively. I hope you got your wee osc. How are you lr?

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 02:08 PM

Thanks guys!
I had a costa and got some snacks!

How is everyone?

long road 10-12-2023 02:11 PM

Still feeling full of cold. So taking it easy again today. Really want to be feeling well by time my brother arrives on Wednesday evening to visit.

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 02:14 PM

Hopefully if you continue taking it easy, you'll feel ok!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 02:28 PM

Look after yourself lr.

My mum brought me Costa :)

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 02:30 PM

Nice! What did you get?

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 02:37 PM

Gingerbread latte and a blueberry muffin. You?

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 02:44 PM

I had a caramel latte

long road 10-12-2023 02:49 PM

Ooh I am a fan of Costa coffee. My partner is just making me one of my fancy coffees at home. Hope you too enjoyed yours

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 03:01 PM

Nice! Hope you enjoy it jen!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 03:24 PM

I did enjoy it. I hope you enjoyed yours!

I'm watching a Christmas film based on an alpaca farm :)

long road 10-12-2023 03:32 PM

It was tasty.

Just watching the final doctor who special.

I love alpacas Beckie!!!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 03:44 PM

I'm looking forward to the new doctor.

long road 10-12-2023 04:10 PM

Me too. The trailer for Christmas special looked super fun!

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 04:50 PM

I watched the new special last night
Was really good!

one_step_closer 10-12-2023 05:15 PM

You are all always talking about Doctor Who!

Yes Beth, I am on Fb. Want me to PM you my full name? Hope you've enjoyed seeing your friend and the baby!

I might be going to Costa in a couple of weeks time for the gym 'group' Christmas treat but I don't like coffee so I'll have to get a non coffee thing.

I hope you feel much better by the time your brother visits, Jen. Please can you change your name to Ken because my finger still goes for the K rather than the J when I go to write your name!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 05:31 PM

Osc, Costa do a nice hot chocolate.

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 05:34 PM

They do indeed do a nice hot chocolate!

I forgot to mention, i saw a coach earlier with 'choo choo I'm a train' on the front!
It was a rail replacement bus. I've seen a meme with that before but didn't think a company would actually do it!

tamobhuuta 10-12-2023 05:56 PM

Lol that tickled me.

Not changing my name Lindsay #sorrynotsorry
*Sings* 'I'm just Jen, if I was someone else I'd be Ken...'

long road 10-12-2023 06:17 PM

Love the choo Choo bus!

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 07:23 PM

The choo choo bus made me smile :)

one_step_closer 10-12-2023 07:39 PM

The Choo Choo bus is real!!!

Cacoethes 10-12-2023 07:42 PM

It is! I wish i could have got a photo but it was going too fast!
