Have you got a b&m or home bargains near you? I think they're quite good at craft stuff?

I really need to go to work though!
And if I get through work without incident then I'm probably not ill enough for hospital

tamobhuuta 10-12-2021 12:20 PM

Hi everyone.

not_so_insig 10-12-2021 12:33 PM

I have received your card today Lindsay. Tyvm.

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 12:38 PM

Hi tamo!

The doctor is running late

tamobhuuta 10-12-2021 12:50 PM

That's frustrating. Ours are always running late.

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 01:12 PM

He was only 15 mins late which wasn't too bad

On way to work now!

one_step_closer 10-12-2021 01:19 PM

You're very welcome Dawn.

I hope everyones day goes ok.

I'm stuck in for my kitchen door being repaired within the next 6 hours.

not_so_insig 10-12-2021 01:30 PM

I know how frustrating it is waiting for tradesmen Lindsay I was like that on Wednesday when I was waiting for the boiler people. Fingers crossed that they come soon.

one_step_closer 10-12-2021 03:02 PM

Luckily they came just before 1pm but then had to go back to wherever they store parts etc because he didn't have the part he needed. It took him less than 5 minutes to sort it once he came back so that was good. Now I need to get Crookshanks back into knowing he's not allowed in the kitchen.

How is your day going Dawn?

nonperson 10-12-2021 03:29 PM

Glad he managed to sort it quickly for you, Lindsay. Is Crookshanks easy to train?

one_step_closer 10-12-2021 03:36 PM

No, he just tries to do things he's not allowed to do. I just need to keep my hand out while I'm opening the kitchen door to stop him coming in. While the door could only be closed but not shut he did wait outside when it was his food time like he had been conditioned not to come in and his food will come out.

How's things with you NP?

nonperson 10-12-2021 04:25 PM

Ah so maybe he does know the rules then. =)

I'm ok... Got a day off today. Dunno what to do with myself. =/

How're you?

one_step_closer 10-12-2021 06:14 PM

Those kind of days can be annoying. Have you found things to do yet?

I'm not feeling great mentally today.

nonperson 10-12-2021 06:25 PM

Just been googling a load of things really and watching the new Young Sheldon series.

I'm sorry things aren't good for you today =(

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 06:54 PM

Hey everyone!

nonperson 10-12-2021 08:49 PM


How's everyone?

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 08:57 PM


I'm ok thanks. You?

nonperson 10-12-2021 09:21 PM

I'm alright... Tired though and pondering more pesto pasta.

How was work today? What did the doctor say?

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 09:26 PM

Sounds like a plan!

Work was very busy but like not in a stressful way so it was fine!
Doctor was puzzled! Said it sounds a bit like vertigo but he's not sure. But if it gets bad again then come back and they'll try some meds.
It was so embarrassing though. He asked me to walk in a straight line and I couldn't do it!

nonperson 10-12-2021 09:39 PM

Ooh vertigo is rubbish. My mum gets that from time to time so I've heard all about the nausea.

Did you have to touch your nose and say the alphabet backwards too? >.>

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 09:43 PM

It is really rubbish!

I had to touch my nose and back to his finger a lot. I really struggled with that too!
Didn't have to say the alphabet backwards!
He did originally say go to hospital for a brain scan but I told him I've had both head CT and head MRI in the last few weeks so he said it's fine

nonperson 10-12-2021 09:47 PM

Hmm what a mystery.

Cacoethes 10-12-2021 09:50 PM

I really thought it was hypoglycaemia at first but its just carried on! Obviously not as bad as it was because I can now function but yeah

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 08:41 AM

Morning everyone :-D

nonperson 11-12-2021 10:36 AM


Cacoethes 11-12-2021 10:39 AM


How are you?

nonperson 11-12-2021 11:06 AM

Alright, I suppose. You?

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 11:07 AM

I'm sooo bored already!

nonperson 11-12-2021 11:14 AM

Got nothing much to do today then? =/

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 11:23 AM

Nope! Just asda and pharmacy.
And I'll probably clean the house

Have you got anything planned?

nonperson 11-12-2021 11:40 AM

Nope, just dreaded food shop later... maybe. And general chores.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 11:46 AM

Best to get it over and done with though!

nonperson 11-12-2021 11:53 AM

I know, it's either do it tonight or first thing tomorrow morning.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 12:00 PM

Do you have to do a big shop?

nonperson 11-12-2021 12:06 PM

Nah not really so it should be quick.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 12:09 PM

That's good!

I pretty much only need to get coke zero

not_so_insig 11-12-2021 12:12 PM

Hello all.

nonperson 11-12-2021 01:07 PM

I need to get more pesto and lunches for next week. Pretty well stocked up on everything else, I think.

Afternoon Dawn. How're you?

tamobhuuta 11-12-2021 01:38 PM

Hey guys :)

not_so_insig 11-12-2021 01:53 PM

I am ok thanks nonperson. Plucking up the courage to go outside though.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 01:56 PM

I am back from asda and pharmacy!
Asda was mental!

tamobhuuta 11-12-2021 02:56 PM

I haven't been outside yet.

not_so_insig 11-12-2021 02:59 PM

I have been outside and got wet.

nonperson 11-12-2021 04:19 PM

I have also not been outside yet. It looks grey and miserable out there though.

Shops are always extra mental at this time of year, everyone's got to buy so much extra food.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 04:36 PM

I was still in and out in under 10 minutes!
I am very good at dodging people! Lol

nonperson 11-12-2021 04:42 PM

You're like the Flash =o

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 04:47 PM

Haha! I am! :tongue2:
I don't like hanging about!

nonperson 11-12-2021 05:02 PM

I wish I had that ability. I'd have been to the shop and back and unpacked it all by now.

Cacoethes 11-12-2021 05:05 PM

I went with a carer once who wanted to look at literally EVERYTHING!
We went round the entire shop! And then he stood for about 15 minutes trying to decide which teddy to get his girlfriend. It was painful!

nonperson 11-12-2021 05:07 PM

Ugh I can't stand that. They're the people that get in my way.

Although sometimes I get baffled by too much choice and stand staring at the shelves for too long. =|
