Sorry you're feeling ill. It's good not to spread the germs.
I've got my monthly prayer group.

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 11:41 AM

Thanks tamo

I hope prayer group is good!

one_step_closer 03-10-2021 12:44 PM

I hope you're feeling fully better soon Beckie.

I hope you enjoy your prayer group Tamo.

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 12:53 PM

Thanks lindsay

Are you up to much today?

one_step_closer 03-10-2021 12:57 PM

I've already washed my hair and done a lateral flow test (negative thankfully). Need to change my bedding and put a wash on. Nothing exciting. I was going to go to Tesco but it might be cold and I can't be bothered.

What about you? Taking it easy?

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 01:04 PM

Well done for washing your hair. I need to do that too.
I'm glad your test was negative!
It's sunny here but still a bit chilly.
But it's always colder in Scotland so maybe stay in if you don't desperately need anything!

I am taking it easy.
But I did do some washing, put away washing and took the rubbish and recycling out.
I do feel a lot better. Should be ok for work tomorrow!

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 08:48 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 11:06 AM

Hiya, how are you?

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 11:12 AM

I'm good thanks!
About to leave for work

How are you?

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 11:24 AM

I'm having a coffee. And it's my birthday!

nonperson 04-10-2021 12:10 PM

Happy birthday Tamo!

*decorates the thread with balloons and cake*

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 12:11 PM

Thanks np. I love balloons!

nonperson 04-10-2021 01:16 PM

Who doesn't!

Are you doing anything different or special to celebrate?

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 01:25 PM

Happy birthday tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 04-10-2021 01:48 PM

Happy Birthday Tamo, I hope you have a good day.

Hope your shift goes well Beckie.

How are you NP and Dawn?

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 01:57 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay.

one_step_closer 04-10-2021 01:59 PM

I'm glad to hear that. What are you up to today?

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 02:06 PM

I have looked through my wardrobe to see if there's anything to give to the charity shop (there wasn't!) and I am sorting through my art supplies (again to go to the charity shop).

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 03:04 PM

L has made cake and we're having takeaway for dinner.
I did that insig, I think i threw out maybe some pyjamas.

one_step_closer 04-10-2021 05:11 PM

A lot of charity shops here say to call before you bring donations. It's nice to donate things though. Won't you need your art stuff Dawn? Do you just have too much or are you stopping?

That sounds good having cake and a takeaway Tamo. I hope you enjoy/have enjoyed it. What kind of cake is it?

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 05:49 PM

I bought an easel for my 10 year SI free anniversary reward and it came with some paints and pastels. I am very fussy about my art supplies so they're not the quality I use. So I won't use them and it was actually more expensive to buy the easel without the art supplies than with. It also came with some canvases which I am going to use. It's unused so I thought that the charity shop might as well sell it rather than being unappreciated/gathering dust.

nonperson 04-10-2021 06:02 PM

Cake and takeaway sounds perfect for a birthday treat. What takeaway?

I'm ok enough thanks, Lindsay. How's your day been?

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 06:19 PM

We had red velvet cake and dinner is Indian.

That's a good reward insig.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 06:21 PM

Happy birthday tamo!

Is something up with fb and WhatsApp?

nonperson 04-10-2021 06:35 PM

Yep it was just on the news, something about it all being down. Facebook had to report it on Twitter, haha.

Elmer 04-10-2021 06:45 PM

It's alarming how much control fb and its apps have over my life. I've resorted to Twitter and Reddit for my doomscrolling.

I hope you're all OK.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 06:49 PM

Oh noooo! D:

I'm ok apart from lack of WhatsApp and Facebook!
Hope you're ok too Lio!

Elmer 04-10-2021 06:52 PM

It's a crisis I have to admit.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 07:02 PM

It really is
How long has it been down?

nonperson 04-10-2021 07:02 PM

Fuel and Facebook crises... The world really is coming to an end.

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 07:10 PM

Yes Lorraine and I usually WhatsApp each other so we are resorting to text. I have gone off Facebook but I use it for local news so idk what is happening lately.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 07:12 PM

The end is nigh!

Elmer 04-10-2021 07:15 PM

I’m too addicted to Instagram. I feel truly lost.

I’m in a not really tutorial. Should pay more attention.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 07:23 PM

I'm not really that into Instagram.
It's mainly fb and WhatsApp for the work group chat

What's the tutorial on?

Elmer 04-10-2021 07:24 PM

It's about how to use the software, but my wifi keeps cutting out so I'm going to just watch the recording and try to get my act together to change my internet provider as this is an ongoing issue

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 07:33 PM

Sounds like a good plan!

Me and Luna went to an in person tutorial once.
Except we were late and felt too self conscious going in so we went to the pub instead

nonperson 04-10-2021 08:29 PM

lol Beckie XD

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 11:28 PM

Facebook is working for me but WhatsApp isnt.

The OU arenít doing any in person events this academic year, which is a shame.

Everythingís back! Iím not sure if Iím relieved or missing out on a journey of self discoveryÖ

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 08:14 AM

Yaaay Facebook and WhatsApp!

Good morning guys!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 10:16 AM

I wasn't affected by the kerfuffle, I didn't want to use fb anyway.
Morning guys.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 10:17 AM

Morning tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 10:45 AM

I am ok thanks. I think my godmother is calling this afternoon which will be nice. How are you?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 10:46 AM

Glad you're ok
That will be nice :)

I'm still in lots of pain but otherwise ok!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 10:51 AM

That sucks. Can you take painkillers?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 10:52 AM

I've been taking paracetamol regularly for days. Doesn't touch the pain!
I spoke to a paramedic at drs today and I need another x ray.

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 10:57 AM

Morning all. My parcel is due to arrive today sometime. Unfortunately tracking doesn't give a time. It sounds wet and windy here today so it's a good job that I dont want to go out. I have a purring cat next to me.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 11:04 AM

My cpn will be coming at some point soon
And a parcel at some point

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 11:11 AM

I'm looking forward to a parcel for my mum because she said it's a present for me!

Sorry the paracetamol isn't working Cacoethes.

Is your parcel exciting insig?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 11:18 AM

How exciting tamo!

Thanks. The paramedic recommended deep heat so I'll get some of that tomorrow
