I hope you get a reply.

not_so_insig 18-04-2017 07:00 PM

Thanks Lorraine. I have enclosed a sae so they aren't inconvenienced by postage costs. I plan to write to some of the casualty cast next.

Sketchy 18-04-2017 07:07 PM

Good luck with that.

Tempted to go for a nap. I'm so tired.

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 07:13 PM

Nap sounds good Lorraine!
I quite fancy a nap but got sw tonight. And I probably won't sleep tonight if I nap now.

Voldemort 18-04-2017 08:01 PM

Evening all. :)

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 08:05 PM

Hi amy! How are you?

Voldemort 18-04-2017 08:09 PM

I'm ok thanks. You?

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 08:10 PM

Im good thanks!
Leaving for slimming world in a minute. Fun times!
You up to much this evening?

Voldemort 18-04-2017 08:13 PM

God luck! Don't be hard on yourself if you gain though, you had a good weekend!

I am having a smoke then I'm going to try and put myself in the shower.

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 08:16 PM

Thanks :)
I know I'm going to gain but you're right, I had a good weekend!
I'll get back on it this week and it will be fine :)

Sounds like a plan!
I miss smoking! Lolz! :p

not_so_insig 18-04-2017 08:18 PM

I fell asleep. I can sleep for Wales so it won't affect my sleep.

Voldemort 18-04-2017 08:33 PM

Lucky, Dawn! I am so sleep deprived. I have a feeling I'll crash tonight for about 12 hours.

Sketchy 18-04-2017 09:08 PM

I didn't go for a nap. I'm trying to hold it off so I sleep better tonight. So tempting though.

What's everyone up to? I'm catching up on washings and might do some writing to combine with my art.

Voldemort 18-04-2017 09:20 PM

I'm just out of the shower. Why is the anticipation and build up to a shower so much worse than actually doing it?!

Sketchy 18-04-2017 09:22 PM

I know what you mean. I feel like that about any activity. It takes me a while to get going.

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 09:24 PM

I'm watching holby :)
So tired!
And my new phone charger has stopped working.
I have no luck with phone Chargers at all!!!
My old one seems.to be working again now. Not sure what's going there!!

Voldemort 18-04-2017 09:25 PM

Most things I'm actually fine with for the most part unless there's anxiety around them. I don't get shower anxiety it's just a really awful activity in my mind! Tbf there's a lot of sensory stuff about it that gets to me but it's always so much worse in my head than actually doing it. I'm actually really proud of myself these last few weeks; I've been having 3 showers in every 7 days. I know that doesn't sound like much but I was showering something like once every 2 weeks so it's really good for me!

Sketchy 18-04-2017 09:27 PM

That's a shame with your charger. Mine never seem to last either. I don't know what I do to them.

I haven't watched holby in years. I should since I enjoy casualty.

I'm curled up in bed and going to watch some Netflix. Probably doctor who or something. I think I'll have an early night though. I need to start getting into better sleeping patterns.

Sketchy 18-04-2017 09:29 PM

That's good your doing it though Amy. You'll probably feel better afterwards for it.

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 09:29 PM

That is good amy!
I'm ashamed to admit, I mostly shower based on if im seeing people or not, so it Varies from week to week :p

Sounds good Lorraine!
Doctor Who is always good!

Voldemort 18-04-2017 09:51 PM

Chargers dying is the worst thing!!! I need to stock up actually.

Netflix and an early night is sensible. I need to get back into a routine!

Showers are so difficult for me. I used to just not care but I do feel so much better for it. I'd shower maybe if I was seeing my parents or something but I didn't care who saw me greasy. Now though it's like ugh I need to shower and change my clothes! I'd wear the same things for 2 weeks/until I showered and now it's different every day! Madness!

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 10:06 PM

That's a good sign amy!
Showering is good! Although it is a pain in the arse!

I'm watching a new episode of the Goldbergs :)

Voldemort 18-04-2017 10:08 PM

It is and it is! It's weird for me though!

I have to be in the right mood for that show but it can be quite good.

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 10:13 PM

I haven't watched it in ages. I do like it though!

I'm getting that weird thing in my throat when I can't swallow. Well, I can swallow but it feels like I can't do it properly and it makes me panic!!!
But I'm drinking a coffee and am swallowing it ok so it's probs just an anxiety thing!!
I hate my brain :p

Voldemort 18-04-2017 10:40 PM

Ugh. That's a horrible feeling. :( I hope it goes away soon!

Cacoethes 18-04-2017 10:43 PM

Thanks! It seems to have settled down now!
Me just being a neurotic weirdo :p

Off to bed now!
Night night and hope you all sleep well!!

Voldemort 18-04-2017 11:14 PM

Night! Sleep well!

Sketchy 18-04-2017 11:15 PM

Sleep well everyone.

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 12:01 PM

Morning guys :)

not_so_insig 19-04-2017 12:13 PM

Hi Beckie.

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 12:38 PM

Hey Dawn.
How are you?

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 01:19 PM

Good afternoon everyone! It's sunny and I'm getting ready to go out for once. How is everyone?

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 01:22 PM

Hello there!
It is nice and sunny today. Although it was sunny yesterday but still chilly!
Going anywhere fun?

not_so_insig 19-04-2017 01:35 PM

It's not sunny here.

I am kinda worried. The council are doing brand new kitchen and bathroom for their tenants. I don't want either. I have had someone knock on my door wanting to discuss either. I explained that I don't want the works and I have signed a form so I am hoping that is the end of it instead of being forced to have it.

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 01:36 PM

It was quite chilly yesterday!
I'm going out to homebase to get some plants for the garden
You up to anything fun today?

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 01:39 PM

Oh we had that a few years ago. The also ripped out our nice front door and put in a pvc thing which is super ugly, they said it had to be easy for fire crews and stuff to kick in so they're changing everyone's doors. They also fitted double glazing which would have been nice if they would have done it properly, my window has a gap in it and I now have mould growing in my room :/ we didn't have a choice with any of it. My mum was really upset.

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 01:40 PM

Hopefully that will be the end of it dawn.

That sounds good Rebecca! (It's always weird typing your name because it is also my name) I go by Beckie though :p
There are so many pretty plants around!
I went to a garden centre with my nanny and I loved all the colours!


I'm not up to much.
Need to go to a nail place. Go to asda. Pick up meds and try and find a decent pair of jeans!

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 01:44 PM

Wow really? That's pretty cool. People call either Bambi or Becs but I don't mind Rebecca either! :D that's a good thing because I'm awful at names but I'll remember yours!
Sounds like a packed day for you!

not_so_insig 19-04-2017 01:50 PM

I would find it too stressful if I was forced to do it which in turn would effect my mh. Also workmen never shut the door and my kitties would escape meaning that I never would see them again. I doubt that the council would pay cattery fees that's assuming that I could find a place in a cattery. Also when I moved in I paid for brand new flooring and I doubt that the council will compensate me when it's still in like new condition and therefore doesn't need replacing.

My neighbour has said that she will refuse the works too. She says that she is in her 80s and therefore hasn't got long left in this world so the council can do it when she shuffles off this mortal coil.

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 01:53 PM

I really hope they listen to you not_so_insig. I think you're well within your right to refuse it. Especially if there's nothing wrong with what you have right now
Had the same problem with my cats, I just kept all 3 of them in whatever room they wasn't working in at the time.

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 01:57 PM

Some people call me bex as well.
And all my family and some friends call me Becca.

Yeah I am a bit busy today!

That sounds pretty stressful guys!
I'm in privately rented accommodation and landlords avoid spending any money unless they absolutely have to!

not_so_insig 19-04-2017 01:58 PM

You can call me Dawn Rebecca because it's my name. Or insig.

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 02:00 PM

Okay, thank you Dawn!

Voldemort 19-04-2017 02:33 PM

Afternoon all!

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 02:34 PM

Good afternoon! How are you today? :3

Shy_Bambi 19-04-2017 03:06 PM

I'm going out now, bye guys!

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 03:39 PM

Hey amy!

Enjoy your outing Rebecca!

Voldemort 19-04-2017 03:53 PM

Have fun, Becs!

Beckie, what are you up to today?

Cacoethes 19-04-2017 03:59 PM

Not a lot.
Done my food shopping, got a new top and jeans, collected meds.
I have an appointment at 4pm at a nail place to get my nails off. :'(

What about you?

Sketchy 19-04-2017 04:32 PM

Good afternoon everyone.

I'm struggling with being tired today, so I have done nothing. Going to go for a shower at some point. That will make me feel better. How is everyone?
