Zurg 18-04-2022 08:53 AM

Nah Beckie, for some reason no one thinks the danish people should be allowed to watch doctor who. And the various streaming platforms don't have the new shows. So i am still stuck with Peter Capaldi while everyone has moved on to Jodie Whittaker years ago. Not that Peter isn't great but it'd be nice to catch up with the new doctor and her shenanigans….

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 09:57 AM

Oh no! That's so sad! :(

nonperson 18-04-2022 10:20 AM

You're not missing much with the new ones, Zurg. They're ok but it's had its heyday. I'd rather watch the earlier series.

Morning all.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 10:36 AM

Yes the earlier series' were better tbh!

Morning np!
How are you?

nonperson 18-04-2022 10:55 AM

I'm... kinda anxious and dunno what to do with myself. Got a friend I haven't seen for years turning up some time today but I don't know when. So I need to shower and do some washing up and maybe go on the exercise bike for a bit to work out the anxiety or something.

Argh! :crazy:

How're you? Did you sleep better last night?

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 10:59 AM

I hope you have a nice time!
I understand being anxious though!

I'm good thanks!
I slept much better :)
Woke up quite a few times but was able to get back to sleep luckily!

Zurg 18-04-2022 11:14 AM

Yay for a friend visiting!! Though it's always a bit anxiety inducing when it's someone you haven't seen for a while…. But i'm sure you'll both have a great time NP :-)

Better sleep sounds really good Beckie. I hope it'll last!!!

I've had a shower. And now i am pondering what to do with this day and i can already feel my mood slipping because i have no chores…. I am not good at just sitting around and being bored. But i'm also tired and don't really want to do anything…. I can't win!!!

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 11:27 AM

Thank you zurg!

Well done for showering!
Hmm that is a predicament!
I totally get that feeling.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 12:06 PM

Hello guys :) I just woke up

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 12:10 PM

Hey tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 12:53 PM

I'm ok, took zopiclone and then got to sleep.
My big sister is coming round.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 12:55 PM

I hope you have a nice time :)

I am suddenly desperate to get my tongue pierced again lol

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 01:00 PM

Again? I don't have any piercings.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 01:11 PM

I've had it done twice.
But i kept accidentally swallowing the ball/bars!
I'm addicted to piercings!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 02:17 PM

I hope you have a nice time with your friend NP and you can find a way to relax.

I'm glad you slept better Beckie. Swallowing piercings doesn't sound like a nice experience!

I know what you mean about needing to be doing things Kat. Can you start doing something really small and see if you feel less tired? Do you have hobbies?

I hope you enjoy your time with your big sister Tamo.

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 02:26 PM

Hello all. My postcard to Russia arrived today. I wasn't expecting it to arrive considering what's happening. But it took it's usual time.

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 02:32 PM

That's good Dawn. Have you received any postcards recently?

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 02:36 PM

Thanks lindsay!
It's not nice! Lol

How are you?

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 03:06 PM

I received two postcards on Saturday. One from Czech Republic and one from Finland Lindsay.

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 03:39 PM

Where's the place where you get most from, or do they make sure it's different every time?

I'm not too good Beckie.

How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 03:42 PM

Sorry to hear that lindsay
Here if you need me!

My day could be going better tbh!
Having some issues with my mum but it'll be fine

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 03:44 PM


I hope you get things sorted with your Mum.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 03:47 PM

It'll be fine. I've done a lot of stupid sh*t in my life and she always forgives me eventually!

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 05:04 PM

The most received and sent country is Germany which isn't surprising as they have the most registered users. My county is twinned with an area in Germany so I am always glad to get German users because I can mention it. My town has links with the USA so I am glad to get them too as it's another thing I can mention. It's completely random which countries you get though it's optional to have within your own country so I have only had 1 UK member.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 05:10 PM

I have purchased a new sofa and a new bed!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 05:52 PM

Sounds good Dawn. You must get some nice postcards.

Yay for sensible new stuff! When are they arriving? Is it a flatpack bed? (Please say no!).

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 05:53 PM

Bed in 3 weeks and sofa in 11 weeks!
The bed requires some assembly but not flatpack! And i chose for it to be assembled for me because i am terrible at stuff like that!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 05:57 PM

That's quite a wait, but not as long as you've been in your current sofa/mattress situation so maybe you can be patient. I'm glad you're getting your bed assembled for you, I'm rubbish at that too. I really need new bedroom drawers and I found ones that are already assembled but I need to sort out my bedroom first and make sure I have enough space but that's not fun and I keep putting it off. I'll either not bother getting it or by the time I'm ready they'll have sold out.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 06:01 PM

Indeed! I can be patient! Sometimes lol
I am very excited though!

Ah yeah that's effort!
I'd find it hard too!
Though I'm going to have to do similar by getting rid of existing bed frame and sofa! It'll mean i actually have to message people and choose someone (out of many!) To take them away and also have to make sure they have a licence so they don't just fly tip it!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 06:06 PM

I'd be excited too. And you've got a long time to be excited! Does your council not do bulky uplifts?

nonperson 18-04-2022 06:13 PM

I didn't think you had an existing bed, Beckie?!

I made mine from flat pack, on my own. I'd like to say it was a doddle but it really wasn't. It's damn sturdy though!

After my earlier message I started doing some washing up, decided to check my phone because I hadn't heard anything from my friend but turns out Messenger was being an arse as usual and not telling me I had messages. And he was due to turn up in 15 minutes but then got delayed so I actually had time to have a shower. Ended up being too panicked and rushed to be anxious any more though, lol. Had a nice day though. I feel a bit tingly warm from the sun, hopefully I'm not sunburnt...

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 06:14 PM

It's just the bottom of the bed frame which i still have for some reason!

That's impressive np!

I'm glad you had a nice time!
Fingers crossed for no sunburn!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 06:18 PM

I'm glad you had a good day NP. Did you not use sunscreen?

nonperson 18-04-2022 06:39 PM

I had my usual face moisturiser on that has some SPF in it but not any normal sunscreen for my neck. Didn't think I was going to be out so long! And didn't realise how sunny it was outside.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 06:48 PM

My best friend is albino so he burns quickly and he burns bad! Like going to A&E bad!!

nonperson 18-04-2022 06:57 PM

Eek! I don't think I'd be able to do my job if I burnt really easily.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 07:07 PM

Oh yeah! That would definitely be an issue lol!

Zurg 18-04-2022 07:50 PM

I look ridiculous when i burn (and it happens every summer!!!) because my skin mostly consists of scar tissue and some of the scars stay white and i end up looking very strange o_o

Also, i get a huge amount of freckles on my upper lip if i am out in the Sun for too long and then i look like i have a moustache…. :-(

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 07:56 PM

That sounds difficult zurg!

I have never had sunburn i don't think!
Mum was EXTREMELY strict on using sun cream when we were kids!
I haven't used sun cream in adulthood but i don't think i spend long enough in the sun to get burned lol

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 07:57 PM

That sounds very unfortunate indeed Kat. I burn easily due to my meds causing my skin to become sensitive to sunlight. I have white scars too on my lower left arm.

nonperson 18-04-2022 08:37 PM

Embrace the freckles, Zurg.

Weirdly the very few arm scars I have don't seem to show too badly despite my arms going really brown. There's even a few freckles that appear over the top of some of them which is odd.

That's amazing you've never been burnt, Beckie!

I don't think I've ever had really bad sunburn. I'm usually really strict with suncream too especially nowadays and I buy really expensive stuff because it's so important especially with what I do, it's absolutely worth the cost. If I get caught out it's always my lower back that ends up getting caught and that is really irritating and sore because of waistbands and sitting in chairs!

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 08:47 PM

I'm very lucky i think!

You are very sensible np!
The lower back burn sounds incredibly uncomfortable though! I guess it's pretty difficult to put sun cream on your own back!!!

nonperson 18-04-2022 08:49 PM

It's quite easy really, just gotta let it dry before pulling trousers/underwear up all the way! Mostly my back is covered by a t-shirt but if I end up bent over weeding then it rides up without me noticing.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 08:59 PM

That makes sense!

What's everyone up to?
I'm watching johnny english strikes again!
But think it might be bedtime soon.
They came to do my meds quite early today

nonperson 18-04-2022 10:32 PM

Hopefully you're in bed and asleep by now!

I've had awesome homemade korma and am watching Rogue One again cos I fell asleep watching it yesterday.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 10:49 PM

I wish!
In bed, trying to get to sleep but it's just not happening!

Oooh nice!

nonperson 18-04-2022 11:10 PM

Boo. Keep trying. I've been playing HP background sounds while trying to sleep recently. "Waking up in Shell Cottage" is one of my favs, works for falling asleep as well as waking up! And the Hogwarts library. And the herbology greenhouses of course =) and Gryffindor common room... etc etc.



Cacoethes 19-04-2022 12:33 AM

Thank you!
What a good idea!

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 09:28 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 19-04-2022 11:08 AM
