Ooo nasty osc. I hope it feels better soon.

I still haven't started on my clothes. I think it'll be fine once I start.

one_step_closer 02-09-2022 04:35 PM

I took a couple of Ibuprofen, it's easing a bit.

How are you, Dawn?

What will help you to get started, Tamo?

How is everyones day going?

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 05:30 PM

I am ok except for slightly bored thanks Lindsay. Did some sweeping and had a shower before to give me something to do. Contemplating what to have for tea.

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 05:53 PM

Sounds painful lindsay!
I pulled something in my chest this morning, it hurt to move and breathe for a while but it went away luckily!

I had creme brulee after work! It was on the specials and i haven't had it in years. It was very tasty

tamobhuuta 02-09-2022 06:15 PM

I did it!

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 06:17 PM

Well done tamobhuuta.

Glad your dessert was yummy Beckie.

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 06:21 PM

Well done tamo!

Thanks dawn :)

My work friend saw me sitting at the bus stop outside work. My usual bus hadn't turned up so i was waiting for the one that goes around the ENTIRE town and takes forever (would actually be quicker to walk) but my friend stopped and offered me a lift home which was so nice of her! I'll have to buy her a drink next time we're working together

Zurg 02-09-2022 06:52 PM

Unexpected kindness is often what restores my faith in humanity!!!

Lindsay, a combo of paracetamol and ibuprofene can work wonders on pulled muscles!!! I am prone to those because i started being old when i turned 30 ;-)
Trust me!!!! I am an expert in painkiller combos!!! Also, heat is good for the back. A heating blanket or a hot water bottle.

Also Well done, Tamo!!! It feels like such a relief when you manage to do something you've been putting off.

What did you decide on for tea, Dawn??

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 06:59 PM

Yes absolutely!

How are you zurg?

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 07:00 PM

I havent had my tea yet zurg. I fancy pasta and pesto though.

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 07:57 PM

In the end I went for Domino's as they are doing a special offer.

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 07:59 PM

I used to like domino's but it is very overpriced for what it is.
We have a couple of much cheaper (and nicer!) Independent pizza places here luckily

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 08:10 PM

They're doing a large pizza for 12 until Sunday. Which is cheaper than just eat.

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 08:21 PM

Fair enough
The pizza near me is like 10 for a square pizza i think. Slightly more for stuffed crust

There's randomly a big pot of domino's dip in one of the bar fridges at work.
Always finding weird stuff in there

Zurg 02-09-2022 08:35 PM

Pizza is always yum. Especially the cool ones with pineapple on!!! Muahahahhahaha!!!!!
#iregretnothing

Cacoethes 02-09-2022 08:48 PM

Yeeesss pineapple pizzzzaaaaa!

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 08:51 PM

I love pineapple on pizza.

not_so_insig 02-09-2022 11:06 PM

Jenna is a fool :laugh:

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 08:38 AM

Morning everyone

Zurg 03-09-2022 09:43 AM

Morning Beckie.
How are you? Anything planned for today?

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 09:47 AM

Hey zurg!

I'm ok.
All i have planned is to go alllll the way back to the dentist to get the stupid prescription stamped!
I resent having to spend an hour (or hour and a half, depending on which bus i get) just to go and get a piece of paper stamped.
But i guess I'd just be sitting here otherwise so it's good to have something to do!
Also need to go to vape shop

How are you? Have you got anything planned?

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 10:27 AM

Hello :) that doesn't sound fun Cacoethes! How are you Zurg?

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 10:34 AM

It is not!
Oh well! Such is life

How are you tamo?

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 10:52 AM

I'm ok. L said she would go with me to the signed Mass this afternoon. I like it because it's far fewer people than a regular Mass and easier to follow than the Italian. But it's only once a month.

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 11:17 AM

That's good. Hope you enjoy it!

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 11:26 AM

Thanks. Have you done your jobs yet?

I poured boiling water on my cheese!

Zurg 03-09-2022 11:35 AM

Well, a nice warm cuppa of tea cheese might be one of the best things invented so far!! We won't know until someone tries it!!! XD

Boo to having to travel to dentist!!! I am lucky, i signed up with the dentist that happens to be located next door. I used to have to travel too. But i didn't like my old dentist and i also disliked having to travel home after having teeth pulled or something else that left me looking like a hungry vampire on the bus home, with blood seeping from my mouth that i could not feel due to the aneasteahtics. Pah!!!

I’ve cleaned bun bun's cage and the birdie cages. Hoovered my flat after because having cage cleaning with no subsequent hoovering makes it all pointless.
Now i am tired, grumpy and hungry.
And have to go grocery shopping and picking up a parcel with something to clean off urine smell from animals. Alberte has taken a liking to peeing in my couch…. Which is a bit unfortunate.

not_so_insig 03-09-2022 11:45 AM

Naughty bun!

Morning all. I have stomach ache which is time of the month related. My period isn't that heavy atm so I dont get why I am in pain.

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 11:52 AM

I tried to sign up with any of the dentists in my town but they all had an at least 5 year waiting list. And it is VERY rare to get an NHS spot now. They have reduced them drastically. So now I'm too scared to try and move dentists. But my dentist is open 8am-8pm Monday to Sunday which is quite handy. Most dentists are normal office hours. And they are also an emergency dentist.
So I'm just gonna stick with them.

What a naughty bun!

one_step_closer 03-09-2022 12:22 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope your trip to get your prescription stamped is ok Beckie. Also hope you get whatever you need from the vape shop even though vapes are bad. :nono:

If you wanted to drink Cheese, Tamo, you should have poured the water over cheese granules! I hope you enjoy Mass.

Oh no, Kat. Alberte is peeing in your couch! One of my cats used to pee on the carpet before we got him neutered because we were stupid and thought he was a girl and girls didn't need anything done. The smell was everywhere and I couldn't get rid of it. I hope you have better luck.

I hope your pain eases soon, Dawn.

I've been to the chemist, Tesco, washed my hair, put a washing on and put the dry things away and put up the washing up to dry, and quickly cleaned the kitchen.

not_so_insig 03-09-2022 12:53 PM

Thanks Lindsay. It's eased off now since I last posted. If it's really bad then I will take painkillers.

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 01:12 PM

Thanks lindsay!
I have the prescription stamped, now having costa.
Finding everything very overwhelming. The bus was full and awful even with my music turned right up, town is busy and loud. There was a guy with a microphone and speakers talking about jesus and a homeless guy sitting near him, shouting at him.
I don't usually get bothered by things like this but i am very stressed out. Still need to get home too!
I think I've spent all week at work surrounded by a loud and busy place that my tolerance has lowered!

Also, i don't actually vape that much! Few puffs a day, that's all. And it's no nicotine liquid. Still not healthy but i don't use it a lot

Well done for being productive lindsay!

Zurg 03-09-2022 02:15 PM

I vape A LOT!!! I was a heavy smoker prior to starting vaping. It is undoubtly not good for your health but at the same time it's not bad in the same ways that smoking normal cigs is. But i'd never advise anyone to take up smoking/vaping/whatever. It is the dumbest decision i ever made and i'm sitting here some 25 years later and still not able to quit. I've tried. It doesn't end well….!!

I felt stressed after cleaning the cages and decided to wait until after my afternoon phonecall to my mum to go shopping and parcel fetching. Then, for some reason, i decided that due to restless legs it would be a mighty good idea to sort some things in my flat. So now i'm tired on a level i hadn't reached prior to being practical pig.
And still need to shop and Pick up parcel. Fml!!!

Good on you Lindsay for being active!! Now you absolutely must relax!!!! It is an order!!!

Period pains are evil, Dawn!!! I am quite offended that at the Grand age of 40 i still get them!!! Rude!!!

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 02:25 PM

Mass was good, I'm getting much better at signing now my hands don't spasm as much!

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 03:37 PM

Busy busy zurg!

I'm home!
And it is raining.

Glad mass was good tamo

one_step_closer 03-09-2022 04:43 PM

I hope you can have some peace at home now, Beckie. Loud noises and general people stuff can be stressful. Well done for getting things done and I hope you enjoyed your Costa.

I hope you haven't totally worn yourself out, Kat. Will you still be able to go shopping and pick up your parcel?

I'm glad you enjoyed Mass, Tamo. It's cool that you sign too.

I have mostly been reading, Kat so I am following your order. There's nothing else on my to do list anyway!

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 04:49 PM

Thanks!
Chatting and having a laugh with the pharmacy people and in the vape shop helped.
Now I'm watching the brand new lord of the rings series!

I'm glad you're relaxing lindsay!

one_step_closer 03-09-2022 04:52 PM

You know everyone! I'm glad you have people who know you and chat to you. I hope you enjoy the new lord of the rings series.

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 04:59 PM

We started that last night Cacoethes but I got too tired half way through the first episode so I'm hoping to finish it with my dad today.

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 05:04 PM

I'm on weekly prescriptions so I'm in there all the time. And it's a small pharmacy so the same people are always there! They always say i can always go and chat to them if I'm struggling which is lovely of them.

Thank you! The new series is really good! I wish they were all released at the same time so i could binge watch them!

not_so_insig 03-09-2022 05:40 PM

They are shutting my road next week so if it's like last time and they're working on my phone poles I might not have Internet. So if you don't see me posting/posting infrequently then don't worry about me. Unfortunately I only noticed the sign at the top of the road today so I couldn't warn you before.

tamobhuuta 03-09-2022 06:45 PM

Thanks for letting us know insig. That really sucks for you!

We finished episode 1 and started episode 2. Are they coming out weekly?

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 06:54 PM

I *think* they are coming out every Friday.

Just caught up with she hulk.
Now rewatching the 4400. I haven't seen it in so long, i can't remember any of it! I remember really enjoying it though

Pi.R^2 03-09-2022 07:15 PM

Oh please tell me intellectual comments about the new Lord of the Rings series so I can act all knowledgeable to my friend who watches it???

Cacoethes 03-09-2022 07:20 PM

No cheating Jenna! ;p
Have you seen the films?

Honestly, i probably wouldn't be able to provide much intellectual insight because i am not an intellectual person!

Cacoethes 04-09-2022 07:46 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 04-09-2022 08:37 AM

Morning Beckie how are you doing today?

Cacoethes 04-09-2022 08:53 AM

I'm ok thanks

You?

tamobhuuta 04-09-2022 09:57 AM

Morning people. Anyone up to much?
