Evening. I finally called around and found somewhere with insulin so am just waiting to collect a couple of vials. Not enough but better than nothing.

Trying to be calm and keep breathing but it's a different place and parking was awful and it's dark and ugh.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 07:34 PM

Well done np!
I was starting to worry about you!

Sorry it's so stressful. Will you be home soon?

nonperson 29-11-2021 08:05 PM

Thanks. I'm home. =)

Never thought I'd be so pleased to be putting insulin in my fridge. I've got to pick the rest up tomorrow.

I also finally booked my flu jab too.

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 08:10 PM

Good good!

So glad you got hold of some!

Yay! Look at you! Getting **** done!

nonperson 29-11-2021 08:27 PM

I know. So unlike me.

It's made me feel all peculiar though x.x

Like I've overfilled my quota for the day and now my body is having an adverse reaction!

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 08:36 PM

Yeah I know the feeling!
Can you rest for the evening?

nonperson 29-11-2021 09:10 PM

Yep, nothing else to do now.

I fell asleep watching Dr Strange last night so might put the rest of that on.

Well done on fixing and riding your bike again, btw. =)

Cacoethes 29-11-2021 09:11 PM

Sounds good!
I love Dr strange.

Thanks :)

nonperson 29-11-2021 09:30 PM

It's not a film I've paid too much attention to really. And I don't know why.

not_so_insig 30-11-2021 10:54 AM

Morning all! Looks like I beat Beckie to the thread this morning.

nonperson 30-11-2021 11:04 AM

She's slacking!

It's positively tropical outside today =D

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 11:14 AM

Oh nooo!
I'm losing my touch :tongue2:

It is much warmer today!

How are we all?

tamobhuuta 30-11-2021 11:32 AM

Hi everyone :) anyone got plans for today?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 11:38 AM

Hey tamo

No plans for me
How about you?

nonperson 30-11-2021 12:12 PM

Just work for me today.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 12:28 PM

Fun times!

tamobhuuta 30-11-2021 12:30 PM

I'm going to the doctor's later, just for routine obs.

I forget, what do you do np?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 12:45 PM

Hope it goes ok tamo
I have routine obs and blood tests etc. On Friday

not_so_insig 30-11-2021 01:07 PM

I have a cpn appointment later. I have posted all my Christmas cards that required a stamp.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 01:40 PM

Very organised

I have one card to post
But I need to get the address first

I'm a propagator/nursery person/horticulturist. =P

Hope it all goes/has gone well at the docs, Tamo.

I'm going to be nagged for not getting my obs and stuff done when I go for my flu jab next week... =/

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 02:14 PM

It's just so much effort though np
You have to call the doctors and everything!
And then actually GO to the appointment!
Luckily my gp surgery is only about a 10 minute walk away. So not too painful!

nonperson 30-11-2021 02:25 PM

It is so much effort. My favourite nurse was the one last year who said they could refuse me insulin if I didn't get a yearly check up. Did I make an appointment after that? No. =P

Also I've just realised that I've spent all morning walking round with one trouser leg still rolled up. Must've been in a rush to leave the house this morning! At least my socks are just black today. Last time I did that I was wearing black and neon green striped socks. *facepalm*

tamobhuuta 30-11-2021 02:28 PM

Oh dear np!

nonperson 30-11-2021 02:31 PM

One of those days...

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 02:32 PM

How the hell could they refuse you insulin?!
Weren't they concerned about the life threatening aspect of that?! :ermm:


nonperson 30-11-2021 06:23 PM

I don't think they could refuse it really. They were just using the life threatening aspect to bully me into making pointless appointments so they could tick their precious boxes.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 06:37 PM

Ugh. Hate professionals like that!

nonperson 30-11-2021 06:44 PM

I'm expecting the same lecture/bullying next Friday too.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 07:14 PM

Could you complain about them?
Because that is really not ok!

nonperson 30-11-2021 08:42 PM

I do complain - to you guys!

Seriously though, complaining is too much effort and involvs talking to more people so I just get out as quick as possible and won't return for another 12 months anyway.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 08:54 PM

That is very true.
It does take a lot of effort
Well, complain to us all you need then!

I have a hair appointment tomorrow
I am very excited!

nonperson 30-11-2021 09:09 PM

Getting it redyed?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 09:14 PM

Yep! And cut. Quite a lot shorter than the usual trim. My hair just really isn't healthy!

nonperson 30-11-2021 09:29 PM

How long is it? o.o

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 09:45 PM

It isn't really that long. Quite far below shoulders but not notably long. It's been like that forever!
I'm going to have it cut to just above shoulders
Which is a drastic change for me!

nonperson 30-11-2021 09:50 PM

Whoa, that's a lot to chop off in one go. It'll help though. Plus I like that length, it's about where mine is.

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 09:53 PM

Yep! I'm a bit nervous but it's for the best!

It is a good length!

nonperson 30-11-2021 09:56 PM

Are you sticking with the multicolouredness or going a different colour?

Cacoethes 30-11-2021 10:04 PM

Still multi coloured but more of the blue and turquoise than pink and purple.
I'll attempt to post a photo when its done!

Cacoethes 01-12-2021 09:58 AM

Morning everyone!
Looks like I'm back being first to post :tongue2:

tamobhuuta 01-12-2021 11:33 AM

Hi Cacoethes, you're up early. How are you?

Cacoethes 01-12-2021 11:46 AM

I was up when I usually am!
Just not for the last few days for some reason!

I'm ok.
Just been for laser tattoo removal and asda
Got hairdressers at 1

How are you?

tamobhuuta 01-12-2021 11:56 AM

I'm ok too. What are you having done to your hair?
I might go in the garden for some fresh air.

Cacoethes 01-12-2021 12:00 PM

Colour and cut :)
That sounds good
It's not too cold out today

tamobhuuta 01-12-2021 12:29 PM

What colour? Yeah the news said it would get warmer.

not_so_insig 01-12-2021 12:36 PM

Hello all. I am having an bloody brilliant week so far. I am feeling positive. My tree is being put up this afternoon and I remembered that I have 2 advent calendars to open today so chocolate for breakfast lol.

Cacoethes 01-12-2021 12:38 PM

Mostly blue and turquoise. A bit of pink and purple :-D

not_so_insig 01-12-2021 12:47 PM

Very colourful Beckie

Cacoethes 01-12-2021 12:50 PM


Will you be having chocolate for breakfast every morning until the 25th Dawn? Lol
