Hi Dawn,

Physically doing better than last week or so. Today I have taken my once a week tablet, done a crossword, made myself porridge for breakfast, had a short rest, showered, made myself lunch and watched a film (Edge of Tomorrow) and spent most of the day so far out of bed, rather than most of the day in bed like most of last week.

Mentally I am still struggling but atleastI am getting some stuff done.

How are you Dawn?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 04:26 PM

Well done for doing all that. My tesco shopping order has been. A lot of it was drink (both alcoholic and non alcoholic) but a lot of it is for Christmas. Last tesco order of the year so I took advantage of the Christmas offers.

one_step_closer 04-12-2023 04:34 PM

Public transport can have its uses, Kat!

Sorry you're not feeling well, Tamo. Hope it doesn't get worse.

Well done with what you've managed, Jen. I'm pleased to hear it.

Did you get some good deals, Dawn?

long road 04-12-2023 04:36 PM

Partner picked up our Tesco click and collect order this afternoon. Getting delivery for drinks is a good idea must have been a heavy order!

Bit shattered now.

How are you ninja Lindsay?

one_step_closer 04-12-2023 04:37 PM

Did you get anything exciting in your order, Jen? I discovered a very tasty milkshake in Tesco.

one_step_closer 04-12-2023 04:38 PM

Oh, ninja again.

I'm just getting to the point where I'm worrying about the darkness/evening/tiredness as usual.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 04:40 PM

The windows here are tinted so it's permanently evening/night, it would send you crazy.

long road 04-12-2023 04:43 PM

Got falafels and some pork pies with cranberry. Generally having less treats as partner found out he was prediabetic so we have cut sweet stuff out.

Cacoethes 04-12-2023 06:32 PM

Hey guys

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 06:34 PM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 04-12-2023 06:39 PM

I'm ok thanks.
Just tired and anxious.

How's your day been?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 06:41 PM

Yes I got some decent deals about 12 quid off. Due to the Welsh government's minimum alcohol unit pricing they're not as good as England. However my Welsh whisky was reduced which is good.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 06:42 PM

Bargain! I've never heard of Welsh whisky?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 06:47 PM

Yes tamobhuuta there's Welsh gin too.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 06:52 PM

Welsh vodka?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 06:54 PM

Yes we have Welsh vodka and a Welsh cream liqueur. Plus Welsh tea.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 06:56 PM

Excellent. What flavours does Welsh tea have?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 06:58 PM

Just ordinary black tea like pg tips is Welsh tea.

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 06:59 PM

Oh ok I thought it might have special flavours like earl grey.

one_step_closer 04-12-2023 07:06 PM

I hope you can still find nice food to enjoy, Jen.

So the lights have to be on all day, Tamo? I like a bit of light from the windows.

Hope you can get some rest, Beckie.

Do Welsh drinks taste very different to other ones, Dawn?

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 07:08 PM

Yeah, all day, the electricity bill must be huge.
How's your day been?

not_so_insig 04-12-2023 07:08 PM

I have had only the Welsh whisky and cream liqueur and yes they taste different. Probably because of the water. The local lager tastes different to most lagers.

one_step_closer 04-12-2023 07:12 PM

That would annoy me. What are you doing with your evening, Tamo? I was at The Works today, got some new fidget/sensory type things.

Do you prefer how Welsh drinks taste, Dawn?

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 07:13 PM

Welsh liqueur sounds nice. That's like Bailey's right?

Osc I am about to see L :)

Cacoethes 04-12-2023 07:16 PM

I had a nap earlier lindsay
Hoping to get an early night!

How are you?

long road 04-12-2023 08:33 PM

I napped too. I am awake now but rather zombified

Cacoethes 04-12-2023 08:34 PM

Know the feeling!
Got anything on this evening jen?

long road 04-12-2023 08:36 PM

Nope just lying in a heapin bed really. If I get the energy going to watch latest Doctor Who on sofa with my partner been saving it for when we can watch tigether

Cacoethes 04-12-2023 08:59 PM

Take it easy!
Must be frustrating

tamobhuuta 04-12-2023 09:12 PM

I hope you get to watch the doctor who, it's a weird one.

I've had my meds :)

long road 04-12-2023 09:30 PM

Couldn't take it much easier. But yeah it is frustrating. In a fair bit of pain today too, which never helps.

I am going to attempt to get to the sofa so I can watch Doctor Who

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 06:09 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 05-12-2023 06:50 AM

Morning Beckie.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 07:43 AM

Hey Dawn
How are you?

Zurg 05-12-2023 11:43 AM

Hi Beckie and Dawn :)
What shenanigans are you guys up to, today???

long road 05-12-2023 11:47 AM

Morning Everyone!

I have to phone DWP today. I expect to be on hold for ever....

Zurg 05-12-2023 12:04 PM

Hi Jen :)
Poor you, i hate being on hold. It's equally stressful and rage inducing :(

long road 05-12-2023 12:09 PM

On second thoughts may wait until tomorrow pain has hit.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 12:15 PM

Morning both!

I have been to asda, seen cpn and seen crisis team.
That's all my things for today i think.
So I'm gonna be bored for the rest of the day probably!

DWP calls are effort.

How are you both?

one_step_closer 05-12-2023 12:21 PM

Morning everyone.

Hope your pain eases, Jen.

I hope you can find something nice to do, Beckie.

How are you Dawn and Kat?

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 12:24 PM

Hey lindsay
How are you?

one_step_closer 05-12-2023 12:25 PM

My nose is cold!

long road 05-12-2023 12:30 PM

You need a nose cosy!!!

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 01:11 PM

Oh no!
Not a lot you can do for cold noses!

not_so_insig 05-12-2023 01:18 PM

I am ok thanks everyone. I am putting my tree up today so will be busy all afternoon.

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 02:17 PM

A nose cosy sounds amazing

Insig what's your tree like? I always do very traditional wooden ornaments cottage vibe.

I've just come home for lunch, Monday and Tuesday are my LONG days so needed to get out of the building for a bit.

not_so_insig 05-12-2023 02:21 PM

I don't have a set theme but I do have cat baubles on my tree. Just a random selection of baubles I have collected over the years. I don't have tinsel on my tree just around the base along with plushies.

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 02:38 PM

Good afternoon everyone.

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 04:01 PM

I'm watching black books.
