Hey no :laugh:

Morning everyone.

You're very productive all the time Lillie.

Cat on lap means you can't move NP.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:00 AM

Morning Lindsay. =P

It does mean I can't move but I do feel like I should be doing something more productive.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 11:03 AM

You could do some arm exercises.

You don't really have to be productive all the time though.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:11 AM

I'm unproductive most of the time. =/ And I'm used to being active all the time at work so feel like I should be up and doing something.

I might get a hot beverage and finish some colouring I started yesterday.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:12 AM

I set goals for the day and then usually achieve 1 or 2 of them and feel like a failure.

Hmmm take 900 photos of the cat like I would?

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:14 AM

I'm the same, Lillie. Achieving one thing is still something though!

I did take some photos of him the other day and have charged up my old DSLR so he'll probably be my test subject. =)

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:15 AM

I hope we'll get to see :-)

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:16 AM

For sure.

He's so hard to photograph though - dark face and pale body, it's an exposure nightmare!

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:18 AM

You'll have to hone your skills!

I just got a letter about my PIP. They are increasing it by one pound a week lol.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:26 AM

Definitely. =)

Ooo yay! That's like an extra pack of biscuits a week.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:32 AM

Not gunna lie itll be a bottle of pepsi max probably.

Am gunna use the current situation to try and start eating properly again. Now I cant just live on junk I buy on the way to work.

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 11:44 AM

Morning guys
I kept getting bothered by various people this morning so I am awake against my will

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:46 AM

I know what you mean about getting back into healthy food habits. I'm trying to exercise some portion control to make supplies last longer.

I'm going to run out of chocolate soon though.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:47 AM

Morning Beckie. That's rubbish! What're you going to do now you're up?

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:50 AM

Oh boo beckie.

Lol no. I ran out of snacks on day 1. Good thing I have to leave the house twice a week for work.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:57 AM

There's not even a shop anywhere nearby that I can pop into during my daily(ish) walk for exercise!

chinahorse 30-03-2020 12:10 PM

That sucks. I can post you some stuff if you want?

nonperson 30-03-2020 12:16 PM

Nah that's ok. =)

I can call on some local resources if need be and I'm gonna have to venture out and do a big shop at some point too.

tamobhuuta 30-03-2020 12:30 PM

Hi everyone. My achievement for the morning was putting on clothes.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 01:12 PM

Well done tamo.

I've put some laundry on and am doing crochet. Will have lunch soon and then maybe a nap. And I need to take my chipped horrid nail varnish off.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 02:04 PM

Well done everyone for doing stuff. :thumbup:

I hoovered and put the washing on.

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 02:06 PM

Well done for doing stuff guys!

I wanted to go to morrisons for snacks and coke zero but they are now not letting anyone off the ward at all. But for some reason this girl is allowed off the ward with her mum for 8 hours.
Why is that ok but walking to morrisons isn't?!

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 02:07 PM

That is quite annoying Beckie. Do you have any snacks at all?

not_so_insig 30-03-2020 02:28 PM

Afternoon all. I woke up at 2 pm. Unfortunately I am in pain today due to time of the month. I might dig out my hot water bottle.

nonperson 30-03-2020 02:42 PM

I've changed the bed, flipped the mattress and done the hoovering.

Cat is back on my lap so I think that's put an end to my productivity. =P

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 02:59 PM

I have no snacks and no coke zero :(
I told the nurse that it's unfair that people can go out with their families but we can't walk down the road to the shop. She's going to put it to management.

Well done np!
Well yes, you can't move a sleeping cat!

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 03:29 PM

Oh no Beckie :( I hope you can get to the shop. I have an Asda order soon, will virtually share my things with you.

Poor you Dawn, I hope you can get some relief.

That's a lot NP.

nonperson 30-03-2020 03:55 PM

How did you manage to get a delivery slot, Lindsay? =/

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 04:04 PM

It's not looking likely that I'll get to the shop anytime soon

I hope your asda order has everything in it lindsay!

Ophiuchus 30-03-2020 04:16 PM

I finally managed to get an Asda order by staying awake until 1am when they released the new slots.
It's an awkward time, but it's done, so...!

Urgh to the time of the month, how annoying.
I hope it passes quickly for you.

I'm waiting for Ubisoft to answer their live chat >_>

not_so_insig 30-03-2020 04:56 PM

I have a hot water bottle now on my stomach. I am freezing though so had a latte.

tamobhuuta 30-03-2020 05:07 PM

Proper latte from a machine or sachet?

Ophiuchus 30-03-2020 05:27 PM

It is COLD today!

I just tried making chocolate milk (why yes, I am an adult...) with that crusha stuff.
It was not good.

Koala hugs 30-03-2020 05:34 PM

nesquick is preferable to crusha any day :P hope everyone is ok.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 05:42 PM

I booked this slot at Asda at some point last week I think. Missing most of the stuff I needed. I'll have to brave Tesco on foot.

Did you get through to Ubisoft Ophiuchus? I want chocolate milkshake now, a proper one. I just have banana powder I think it is Nesqiuk.

What is everyone doing this evening?

Ophiuchus 30-03-2020 05:42 PM

Yeah, totally getting Nesquik next time.
I mean....*insert mumbling about adulting here*

Step, you ninja posted!
I did, not sure if I actually got anything sorted, but I got through.
Bit of a bugger that you have to brave Tesco, I hope they're not too busy!
Hoping Asda have everything I ordered, otherwise husband is going to have to Rebel up and brave the shops this week.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 08:07 PM

The supermarkets are generally ok now. Apart from the whole what if they judge me for what I'm buying and call the police cos its non essential thing I have going on.

tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 10:20 AM

Morning everyone x

Ophiuchus 31-03-2020 10:27 AM

Hi Tamo. You okay?

tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 10:35 AM

I'm doing well thanks Ophi, waiting for my dad to make us a communal pot of tea, how are you?

Ophiuchus 31-03-2020 10:36 AM

Mm, tea sounds good!
I'm okay, thanks. Not sure what I'll be doing today. Feels like a nap kind of day, though.

tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 10:41 AM

Nap days are gooooood. I don't know what I'm going to do today. Probably watch TV, I find it helps my anxiety.

The Worst Witch 31-03-2020 10:48 AM

Hey guys

chinahorse 31-03-2020 10:52 AM


tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 11:08 AM

Hey Witch, hey china! How are you?

The Worst Witch 31-03-2020 11:14 AM

I’m okay, how are you?

tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 11:25 AM

I'm good thanks. Any plans for today?

chinahorse 31-03-2020 11:29 AM

I'm blergh. Should get washed and dressed. Cat is driving me insane. Hes taken to crying a lot.

tamobhuuta 31-03-2020 11:34 AM

Aw poor kitty. Sorry you're not feeling great china. I'm still in my jamas too.

chinahorse 31-03-2020 11:35 AM

Think hes confused why I'm home and am not acting like his personal play slave 24/7.
