Thanks Dawn!
No one ever lives near me, lol!

not_so_insig 13-03-2017 09:46 PM

Nobody lives near me either. An ex member used to though.

Cacoethes 13-03-2017 09:59 PM

I don't think anyone has ever lived near me!
I live in quite a small town. I don't even think anyone here lives in the same county.
There must be though, there are so many members someone must live in the same county!

I'm debating on whether to try and pick at a lasagne ready meal as it's nice brand and goes off tomorrow but still trying to find this mysterious appetite I seem to have lost.

chinahorse 13-03-2017 10:04 PM

I think you should Katy might end up enjoying it!

Cacoethes 13-03-2017 10:09 PM

Definitely give it a go Katy! Nothing to lose!

Buttons. 13-03-2017 10:32 PM

Managed a few bites before my stomach just sort of went No. It's better than wasting it all chucking entire thing in bin tomorrow I suppose.

Cacoethes 13-03-2017 10:36 PM

It's good that you gave it a go.
Are there any foods at all you feel like eating?

Sketchy 13-03-2017 10:46 PM

It's good you tried it Katy. I agree with Beckie. Is there anything you feel like eating? A favourite food?

Buttons. 14-03-2017 04:09 AM

Only thing I'm actually eating and semi enjoying is weetabix tbh and sometimes soup. It's so frustrating as now I'm nearly a month free of booze so can afford foods I used to like which I've ended up stopping buying because it's such a waste of money.

Anywho hope everyone is sleeping well :)

[Luna] 14-03-2017 08:27 AM

Morning guys <3

chinahorse 14-03-2017 09:02 AM

Morning love how're you? Up to much today

[Luna] 14-03-2017 09:13 AM

I'm ok. Just tired and sore. I need to go to the shops, do some of my assignment and tidy up. How about you sweetie?

Buttons. 14-03-2017 09:35 AM

Careful not to overdo yourself Luna.

Morning all, how are you Lillie?

[Luna] 14-03-2017 09:40 AM

I'll try not to.
How are you Katy?

Buttons. 14-03-2017 09:55 AM

Tired but meh.

You?

[Luna] 14-03-2017 09:58 AM

What are you up to today?
I'm just heading into town. It's chilly today.

[Luna] 14-03-2017 10:24 AM

So hard to stay awake on the bus!

Buttons. 14-03-2017 10:27 AM

Nothing exciting. I quite like chilly days so long as wrapped up warm :)

Buttons. 14-03-2017 10:27 AM

Know that bus feeling!!!!

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 11:53 AM

I agree Katy, chilly days are good. I cannot stand being too hot!

I have buildery people in again. Thank god it's only one person today. My flat was completely taken over by like 4 people and loads of equipment yesterday.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 12:03 PM

Morning guys.

I've just arranged for my washing to be picked up.
I've got like no clothes or underwear or socks left so I hope they can do it same day!! :/

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 12:23 PM

You are soo organised Beckie :tongue2:
When are you getting this new washing machine?

[Luna] 14-03-2017 12:55 PM

Hey again guys. How are you both?
Just got in from the shopping. In so much pain.

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 01:12 PM

Did you get anything nice whilst shopping?
Oh pain sucks :-/ can you take something for it, or heat up a wheat bag or hot water bottle to help try and ease it a little?


[Luna] 14-03-2017 01:14 PM

I have so much I need to do but currently have no energy to stand up.
I got some new jeans and a couple of dresses.

How are you love?

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 01:19 PM

I am incredibly organised amy :p
I'm not sure about the washing machine scenario. Mum bought one for me second hand but the pipe split in the cold weather (they are building a house so the washing machines live in the stable atm) so she's going to try and fix it.

New clothes are always good Luna. Make sure you get plenty of rest! Pushing yourself isn't going to help.

I'm feeling rather unwell! I've just.got back from asda. I felt/feel sooo weak and dizzy and also boiling hot!
Also have no appetite but forced down some weetabix!
Anyway, I'll stop moaning now!!

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 01:23 PM

Maybe your body is telling you that you need to slow down, however inconvenient that is!

Yay for new clothes :)

Perhaps you could have something to eat and have a brew and stick your feet up for an hour and see how you are then. Maybe then you might have more strength to get on with things.

I'm okay, so tired but need to go pick my meds up in a bit.

Oh no Beckie, I hope you feel better soon. And I hope your mum is able to get the washing machine fixed soon.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 01:32 PM

Amy had some good ideas!

That's a pain amy. Is that the only thing you need to do today?

Thanks :)

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 01:36 PM

I've also got to go grocery shopping as well as literally have nothing but soup in. Oops.

I'm clearly super organised too. We should start a club off Beckie :p

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 01:40 PM

Fun times! I hate grocery shopping with a passion!
I pretty much only had soup in before I went to asda!

We totally should! :p

[Luna] 14-03-2017 01:41 PM

I'm sorry you're feleing poorly beckie.

I hope you manage to get some food in Amy.

I sat and watch Hollyoaks for a bit and now I'm slowly doing some tidying up.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 01:51 PM

Remember to rest if you need to lovely!

I'm feeling a bit better now. Cooled down after having the window open for a bit :)

[Luna] 14-03-2017 01:53 PM

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. Take it gently though. What are your plans for the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 02:08 PM

ThankS :)
Just slimming world at 7:30.
Gonna chill until then. Maybe attempt my maths homework!
And hopefully my washing will come back today. Depends on how busy they are.
I need to mow the grass but I'm terrified of machinery like.lawnmowers! Even though mine is electric and basically a vacuum cleaner for grass.
Gotta do it at some point before the inspection!

[Luna] 14-03-2017 02:14 PM

I feel so sick. I've stopped tidying up because I've started shaking. I'm so frustrated.

I hope SW goes well. Do you have a supportive group?

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 02:20 PM

Sorry to hear that Luna :( *big hugs*

The group is amazing. I'm going to try and actually stay for group this week. My anxiety has prevented me from staying for a while but I'm going to make the effort today!

Wonderland. 14-03-2017 02:23 PM

Rest Luna lovely. Is there anything that needs doing that you can rest your body and still do? That way you can still get some stuff done.

Beckie would it help to ring someone before you mow the lawn so they are aware you are doing it, and then let them know you are going to ring them in a certain amount of time. So if you don't they know you've been eaten by the mower :-P

Someone like your mum may be able to reassure you that you are going to be fine doing it as well.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 03:12 PM

That's a good idea!
I'll try and get it done tomorrow. Feeling a little 'off' today. You have to have your hand on the button thing when you're mowing so it's not like if I pass out it will keep going.
I wish I had a sit on mower. (Even though it's a tiny bit of grass)
I used to love mowing the grass in the field we used for football at the old house where I grew up!
Those sit on ones are great fun!!

not_so_insig 14-03-2017 03:14 PM

*sends sympathies to all those feeling poorly*

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 03:20 PM

Thanks Dawn.
How are you?

I just ate a tub of houmous. I love houmous a little bit too much! Lol!
Still hungry though!

[Luna] 14-03-2017 03:24 PM

Thank you. I've admitted defeat and gone to bed. I'm watching A series of unfortunate events on Netflix.

not_so_insig 14-03-2017 03:28 PM

I am ok apart from my cold Beckie. I am waiting for my tesco order.

I had coffee with my friend before and I don't know if it's my cold or what but my panini tasted cold. Not even my coffee was as hot as usual.

Sketchy 14-03-2017 03:30 PM

Luna, sometimes Netflix and bed is needed. Take care.

I'm having a cup of tea .

Sketchy 14-03-2017 03:31 PM

Colds can affect taste. I hope you get better soon Dawn.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 03:35 PM

That's a good series Luna!
Im glad you're resting up.

What Lorraine said, cold can affect taste.
Last time I had a cold I literally could not taste anything!

Tea sounds good Lorraine! Are you up to much today?

Sketchy 14-03-2017 03:40 PM

I've had a busy day. I was staying over at my dad's, went into town with him, back to my area to go to Morrisons, picked up prescription from gp, and now I'm having tea in the coffee shop before I hand the prescription into the chemist. I'm having a rest in here just now, because my new converse are hurting my feet. I hate wearing new shoes.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 03:44 PM

Wow! Very busy day!
Wearing in new shoes can be a pain (literally!)
The worst was my Doc Martins. I had soooo many blisters and even having 3 blister plasters over them, it still hurt loads!!
They're so comfy once they're worn in though!

Sketchy 14-03-2017 03:47 PM

Yeh, converse are comfy once worn in. They are just so new and stiff.

Anyone up to anything this evening? I'm going home to take rubbish out, clear my shopping away and then just watch Netflix.

Cacoethes 14-03-2017 03:58 PM

I have two pairs of converse. I love them! I always want more though!

I've just got slimming world tonight. I bought a pizza from asda to treat myself so I'm looking forward to that later!

I'm currently watching '127 hours'
It's a bit weird.
