It's probably more effective

Yess, as a fellow glasses wearer, I feel your pain!

Yeah they do that! Mini humans are weird.
I'm not good with them tbh. And don't particularly like them..Apart from jasmine of course! XD

Morning everyone!

It is -8C 0_o

tamobhuuta 15-12-2022 10:41 AM

Morning Cacoethes. It's -3 here. How are you?

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 10:46 AM

It's 'only' -4 now!

I'm ok thanks! You?

tamobhuuta 15-12-2022 10:53 AM

I'm ok. Feeling anxious but my dad is visiting so I'm hoping that will help. Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 11:17 AM

That's good :) hope you have a nice visit!

I have bodycombat at 12:45, then need to clean out the boys, go to asda and taekwondo this evening

Zurg 15-12-2022 11:37 AM

Hi Tamo and Beckie.

It's cold here too. There's still snow on the sidewalks and bicycle paths so i'm hopping on a bus to my psych appointment. Cold is okay. Rain is okay. Snow is NOT okay when riding a bike. It makes it impossible to steer. At least for me ;)

I am so, so tired. I Got up this morning and fed the zoo and then took a nap after my morning coffee and breakfast. Spending almost 12 hours with kids yesterday and i feel like i've run a marathon. And climbed a mountain.
Got home to a very frustrated and hungry bunny that had started to tear my livingroom apart in protest of the very terrible room service XD

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 11:45 AM

Still snow here too. Though it's actually more ice now!

Kids can be super exhausting!

Naughty bun!

Pippin has started jumping up on the chew tube when i pick up the bowls to give them food! And then getting under exactly where I want to put the bowls lol

tamobhuuta 15-12-2022 12:05 PM

Naughty animals!

It was lovely to see my dad but I am still feeling anxious.

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 12:10 PM

Could you listen to music or watch a film? That usually helps when I'm anxious

tamobhuuta 15-12-2022 01:14 PM

I think I'll put a film on while I have lunch.
I might have covid :( I did a test this morning which came back negative but the ward manager had a look at it just now and thought she saw a shadow, so I've retaken the test and am waiting for the result.

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 02:18 PM

Good idea.
Oh no! Hope you don't have it!

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 02:29 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you don't have covid, Tamo.

Hope you're all having as good a day as possible

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 02:34 PM

Well, I haven't slipped over yet today so I'm doing ok XD

You got much on today?

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 02:54 PM

Well done! Keep it up, and by that I mean keep your whole body up off the ground except your feet!

I've done a washing and might tidy up my brother's bedroom for him coming over for Christmas whenever that is (I can't have a generic guest room because his stuff are all in there). I got up late which is annoying. I was going to go to Aldi but felt like it was too late in my schedule. I have a lot to do tomorrow and I'd like to get up earlier.

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 03:14 PM

I'll do my best!

It's hard to get out of bed in this weather!

I don't know whether to go to asda or not. I do need to go really. But my amazon delivery is coming between 4:30 and 7:30 and i still need to clean out the boys!
Better get on with it i guess!

tamobhuuta 15-12-2022 03:50 PM

Sending motivation for all your jobs x

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 04:21 PM

Thank you!
I have cleaned out the boys but no time to go to asda.
Could go after taekwondo but probably won't! Tomorrow morning it is!

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 05:18 PM

Don't be doing too much in one day. Sometimes it's impossible to squeeze it all in and that's ok. I try to spread things out over the week/weekend. What are you learning at taekwondo at the moment?

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 05:20 PM

It wouldn't have been impossible if I had got on with things sooner!
Been so lazy lately!

Dan-gun is the next main pattern. But learning lots of other things too!
Finding dan-gun really hard though. It's something like 21 moves, mostly new or just recently learned moves

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 05:29 PM

I would never put the word lazy next to you! You got most stuff done anyway. You're allowed to rest and have to catch up with things on another day. So you have to do 21 moves one after the other with no stopping?

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 05:30 PM

Crookshanks has been snuggled up on his bed upstairs ignoring me for most of the day but he's making his presence known now because it's his food time!

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 05:35 PM

Thanks!
I'm not good at resting lol
Yep, one after the other. In a pattern. So like step to the left, backwards step turn.....would be easy if it was just one after the other but you have to remember which direction you're going in and also HOW you're turning to the other direction! Because there are several ways to do that!

Haha! They always know!

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 05:38 PM

Sounds complicated. I always have to think when we're doing things that require patterns of movements at the gym. Even changing legs when doing step ups makes me stop and get confused.

Zurg 15-12-2022 05:46 PM

It's okay, Lindsay. I've completely given up on trying to follow anyone who is trying to show me how to move. If i get dragged along to such things, i purposefully embarres myself and everyone else by refusing to do the right moves!!! Take that, you fitness fascists!!!

one_step_closer 15-12-2022 05:49 PM

Haha! Refusing to do the right moves actually sounds fun as long as you've got the right mindset and don't care what other people think. I prefer the gym over the dance-type classes because I can't keep up with the moves.

How is your day going, Kat?

not_so_insig 15-12-2022 07:17 PM

Hello all. It's been warm here today as it's been 1 degrees. Certainly felt the difference walking to the post box. Dont forget that tomorrow is the last date for posting 1st class post. I have a Christmas card for my ex next door neighbour but it's less than a 5 minute walk to where she lives now so I will shove it through her letterbox in person rather than bother with a stamp.

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 07:34 PM

There's a dude who sometimes comes to glow beatz who just completely does his own thing! And I certainly respect him for it!

I think it just takes practice tbh
I had ZERO coordination before! My arms and legs would not do things together! I could either do arm moves or leg moves, not both!

Taekwondo was good!
Worth going out in the cold!

not_so_insig 15-12-2022 08:36 PM

Did you get your amazon delivery ok Beckie? I am sitting here waiting for the horsey action to start on the telly.

Cacoethes 15-12-2022 09:16 PM

Nope I did not!
I love being busy but it is hella inconvenient sometimes!

Oooh what horsey action are we talking? Dressage? Show jumping?

not_so_insig 15-12-2022 10:46 PM

It was the puissance so showjumping. Dressage is on tomorrow.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 07:50 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 09:52 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 10:08 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Been to asda. Fitness pilates by candlelight soon! Then work.

How are you?

Zurg 16-12-2022 11:40 AM

Hi Beckie and Tamo :)

It's cold here, brrrr…. Cleaned out Findus' litter box because he made it smell like bunny poop and pee. I am braving the outside and the bicycle paths soon. Busses are cool but i hate getting cold while i wait for them when they are late.
Trying to psyche myself up for the outside with a cup of cocoa.

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 11:56 AM

Mmm cocoa.

Why by candlelight Cacoethes?

I'm going to do a wordsearch then try to read.

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 02:30 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope you're doing ok with getting everything done and your shift goes well, Beckie.

The snow is melting here and it's not as cold as it has been.

Have you been out, Kat?

That sounds like a good plan, Tamo. I like both activities you've chosen. :-) I'm useless at things like crosswords and sudoku though.

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 04:45 PM

Crosswords are too difficult. I used to like sudoku but went off them. What have you been up to osc?

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 05:13 PM

I went for my prescription as usual, washed my hair, and hoovered unenthusiastically. Done some reading too. I've just ordered doughnuts, great way to lose weight!

How has your day been, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 06:06 PM

Quiet. I got really anxious so had PRN and feeling better now. I had mash and beans for dinner.

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 06:11 PM

I'm glad the PRN helped. Mash and beans are yum. Did you not want the other part of the meal which I'm guessing was offered?

nonperson 16-12-2022 06:17 PM

Mmm mash and beans! Nice comforting wintery sort of food.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 06:18 PM

It was by candlelight because it's just a thing that she does at the end of every term!
It was actually really nice!

Work has been BUSY and loud!
I'm having a pink gin and lemonade and a steak! Payday treat!

Mash and beans is awesome.

I have been asked by several people if i want a guinea pig....my secret santa asked apparently XD
I've had to explain the complex social dynamics of guinea pigs several times!

nonperson 16-12-2022 06:21 PM

A guinea pig as a secret Santa gift would be amazing XD

Zurg 16-12-2022 06:42 PM

If someone gave me a Guinea pig i might even consider marrying them!!!!!

It was bloody cold out. Even more so this evening after sunset, brrrr…. I couldn't ride too fast as a lot of the bicycle paths hadn't been cleared. Rude!!!

I had new neighbours moving in this week. Tonight it sounds like the are putting furniture together and putting things up on the walls. Findus keeps jumping up onto the couch because the noises make him scared. Poor, wee bun-bun (but yay for more cuddles!!!!)

Donuts??? Mmmm, Lindsay :D
Don't mind if i do!!!

I hope you feel better now, Tamo.
Also, hi NP :)

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 07:57 PM

The rest of the food looked manky but you can't go wrong with mash and beans - just not too often.

not_so_insig 16-12-2022 07:59 PM

Hello all. I havent felt as cold today. I am watching horsey action on the telly.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 08:22 PM

I would love another guinea pig tbh!
But i have 2 boys, 3 boys almost never works because of dominance issues, and 2 boys and 1 girl and the boys would fight over the girl!

It is FREEZING!
I've just got home. I put the heating on before I left work but brrr!
I can feel a draft coming from somewhere. I can only feel it sometimes. Annoying!

Awww poor bun! Hopefully he settles soon!
