I'm ok thanks.
Just on my break!

one_step_closer 01-10-2021 04:53 PM

Lol Tamo, getting forgetful?! Well done for having a shower. What have you been doing with the rest of your day.

I'm feeling hopeless.

I hope work is going well Beckie.

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 05:06 PM

I've done some reading and other coping skills. Now I'm having tea and cake.

Sorry you're feeling so ****

Cacoethes 01-10-2021 08:07 PM

Work was ok thanks!
The time went quite fast
Lots of pain though

Sorry you're feeling so terrible lindsay

Tea and cake sounds nice tamo!

not_so_insig 01-10-2021 09:39 PM

Hello all.

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 10:00 PM

Hi insig, how are you?

not_so_insig 01-10-2021 10:24 PM

Apart from being cold I am ok thanks tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 02-10-2021 08:20 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 02-10-2021 12:45 PM

Hi, how are you?

one_step_closer 02-10-2021 01:16 PM

Hi Beckie and Tamo. Have any plans today?

I need to hoover and clean the kitchen and bathroom.

not_so_insig 02-10-2021 02:09 PM

Hello all. It's pouring down here.

Cacoethes 02-10-2021 02:11 PM

Me and Jasmine went to a craft fair.
And walked back in the rain!

tamobhuuta 02-10-2021 04:11 PM

I went to mass, it was signed for the deaf. It was good for me because there weren't many people.

one_step_closer 02-10-2021 04:36 PM

It's been pouring down a lot of the time here too.

Was it a fair where you can buy things people have made, Beckie? I hope you were prepared for the rain clothes wise.

I'm glad mass was good for you Tamo.

Cacoethes 02-10-2021 05:11 PM

Yes it was lindsay!
We bought a few things.
And Jasmine got given a lovely handmade organic soap by my mum's friend who makes them!
Absolutely not prepared for the rain!
Jasmine was in shorts! (I did tell her to change...)

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 09:18 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 03-10-2021 11:18 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 11:29 AM

Not great.
Had a dodgy stomach all morning so I had to call in sick to work which I feel really bad about.
But I think my stomach is getting better

How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-10-2021 12:37 PM

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

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 12:41 PM

Thanks tamo

I hope prayer group is good!

one_step_closer 03-10-2021 01:44 PM

I hope you're feeling fully better soon Beckie.

I hope you enjoy your prayer group Tamo.

Cacoethes 03-10-2021 01:53 PM

Thanks lindsay

Are you up to much today?

one_step_closer 03-10-2021 01:57 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 02:04 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 09:48 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 12:06 PM

Hiya, how are you?

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 12:12 PM

I'm good thanks!
About to leave for work

How are you?

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 12:24 PM

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

nonperson 04-10-2021 01:10 PM

Happy birthday Tamo!

*decorates the thread with balloons and cake*

tamobhuuta 04-10-2021 01:11 PM

Thanks np. I love balloons!

nonperson 04-10-2021 02:16 PM

Who doesn't!

Are you doing anything different or special to celebrate?

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 02:25 PM

Happy birthday tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 04-10-2021 02:48 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 02:57 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay.

one_step_closer 04-10-2021 02:59 PM

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

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 03:06 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 04:04 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 06:11 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 06:49 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 07:02 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 07:19 PM

We had red velvet cake and dinner is Indian.

That's a good reward insig.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 07:21 PM

Happy birthday tamo!

Is something up with fb and WhatsApp?

nonperson 04-10-2021 07:35 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 07:45 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 07:49 PM

Oh noooo! D:

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

Elmer 04-10-2021 07:52 PM

It's a crisis I have to admit.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 08:02 PM

It really is
How long has it been down?

nonperson 04-10-2021 08:02 PM

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

not_so_insig 04-10-2021 08:10 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 08:12 PM

The end is nigh!
