its all people I know, but other than the boyfriend and 1 zoom party I basically haven't seen anyone I know since march last year... and even then it was a funeral... a few of the people at the BBQ tomorrow I've not seen or spoken to since christmas 2019

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 02:17 PM

That would be nice tamo :)

I'm going to Brighton next week with my best friend who i haven't seen in ages!

That's a long time Hazel! No wonder you are feeling apprehensive.
Is your boyfriend going too?

shadow-light 18-06-2021 03:13 PM

ye he'l be going too, I wouldn't be able to get there otherwise as he has to drive. He's also not sociailsed in the last year, I guess he sees people at work but its a bit different. So it could be interesting as neither of us are the best at socialising even when we've been practicing (both on autism spectrum)



I'm also worried because the BBQ is starting at 3pm, but due to his OCD and the time controled activities therein we can't go till about 8pm... everyone seems to have forgotten about this... so I' worried we'll get there and everyone will have left... also last time I saw most of these people some of the issues I've been having issues with recently were under control and now they are not so scared about embarassing myself...



then again one of the guys going is a psychiatric nurse so maybe one of the better people to have a breakdown in front of :laugh:

shadow-light 18-06-2021 03:17 PM

anxiety driven overshare worry dump over :laugh:

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 03:19 PM

That does sound very scary!
I might turn out that it's one of those things that you think will be way worse than it actually is!

shadow-light 18-06-2021 03:20 PM

quite likely, i'd say 90% of things are way worse in my head then in reality

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 03:27 PM

I know the feeling!
I'm sure you'll enjoy it once you're there

one_step_closer 18-06-2021 04:06 PM

I hope it goes ok Hazel.

No rain here just sunny, cloudy, and breezy.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 04:09 PM

Hi lindsay! How are you?

It's been raining really heavily all day here!
It has cooled things down a lot!

one_step_closer 18-06-2021 04:21 PM

I'm a bit of a mess.

Have you been out in the rain?

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 04:23 PM

Sorry to hear that :(
I hope you feel better soon

Nope! I was going to go to asda today but I have a tesco delivery coming tomorrow so I don't really NEED to go luckily!

one_step_closer 18-06-2021 04:25 PM

I quite like being out in the rain! Did you order anything nice from Tesco?

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 04:28 PM

Totally forgotten what I've ordered tbh!
Definitely coke zero!

one_step_closer 18-06-2021 06:28 PM

Of course, that's a staple! I hope you get some nice surprises.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 06:55 PM

Thanks! I'm sure I will!

nonperson 18-06-2021 07:21 PM

I like being out in the rain too, as long as I can stay dry.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 07:33 PM

My umbrella broke so there's no staying out of it for me!

I'm showered and in clean PJs. Nice feeling!

How are you np?

nonperson 18-06-2021 07:41 PM

My raincoat has a leaky sleeve so that wasn't fun this morning when my fleece sleeve inside starting wicking the water up.

I need to get out of work clothes. I feel all damp! But also very tired and achey and hoping I'm not getting a migraine because my eyes are feeling funny in my head. =/

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 07:55 PM

Eeek not nice!

Oh I hope you're not getting a migraine. They are horrible :(

nonperson 18-06-2021 08:09 PM

I think it's just a regular old headache brewing.

Can hear someone having a party/loud gathering outside...

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 08:12 PM

Headaches suck too!

How annoying!

nonperson 18-06-2021 08:57 PM

It's not that annoying, it's not next door or anything. The random voices and laughter just makes me uncomfortable! But they've gone quiet now so I guess they were waiting for the football kickoff at 8pm and have gone over to the club to watch it.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 09:17 PM

That would make me uncomfortable too
Who's playing tonight?

nonperson 18-06-2021 09:35 PM

England v Scotland

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 09:38 PM

Ah. A big one then!

nonperson 18-06-2021 09:48 PM

Yep! The radio has been talking about it all day, that's the only reason I know about it. Not inclined to watch it though.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 09:50 PM

I look forward to social media news tomorrow when I inevitably hear about England fans doing utterly ridiculous and stupid things!
I've already seen a video of a Scotland fan wearing a kilt (with nothing underneath) and doing 'the worm' on the tube!!!

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 09:56 PM

I just heard a couple of ladies shout 'woooo!'
I'm not sure why but I assume it's football related

nonperson 18-06-2021 10:32 PM

Most likely! And :blink: to the man in the kilt though. How strange.

Cacoethes 18-06-2021 11:26 PM

Yes. Football does strange things to people

nonperson 19-06-2021 09:54 AM

England lost. What a surprise. =P

Edit: My mistake, it was a draw. But Scotland are happy and England are not, apparently. Why am I talking football anyway...?!

...

Morning everyone. <3

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 11:22 AM

Very strange!

How are you doing np?

nonperson 19-06-2021 11:24 AM

Woke up tired and feeling really chest fluttery anxious for some reason. I've got a week off work now but have a million things to do so it's probably that. x.x Going for a walk in a minute so hopefully that helps.

How're you? When're you off to Brighton?

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 11:52 AM

Sorry to hear that
Can you make a to do list and tick things off?
That always helps me when I have lots to do

I'm good thanks
Brighton is next week!

tamobhuuta 19-06-2021 11:53 AM

Hi np, Hi Cacoethes.
I hope the anxiety passes soon np.
I had a lovely sleep.

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 12:15 PM

That's good tamo :)

tamobhuuta 19-06-2021 12:22 PM

Anyone got plans for today?

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 12:28 PM

Nope!
Though I will go out for a walk
It has cooled down considerably since all the rain yesterday!

How about you?

tamobhuuta 19-06-2021 01:12 PM

A shower!

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 01:20 PM

Ah that's good!
I had a shower last night :)

It seems I have been banned from posting on Facebook.
No idea why!

tamobhuuta 19-06-2021 01:34 PM

Oh dear that's not good! Have they not even sent an email to explain?

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 01:40 PM

Ok so it's only groups I can't post in.
But I post a lot in my groups!

No email or anything! I'm really confused!

nonperson 19-06-2021 01:47 PM

Sometimes random things happen on Facebook. My mum got banned entirely once even though she'd never even made a comment anywhere!

Glad you had a good sleep, Tamo. It can make all the difference to the day when it starts well =)

I do often write to-do lists, Beckie. But I think it might be too overwhelming if I do that right now! The garden to-do list is basically just weed everything in sight.

The weather is so much better although is hampering my gardening efforts at the moment. Not so keen on cutting down soggy 5 foot nettles =/

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 02:01 PM

That's weird!

Fair enough!
No that doesn't sound fun :/
I accidentally brushed past some nettles the other day.
It didn't even hurt that much but I remember being deathly afraid of them as a child!

not_so_insig 19-06-2021 02:08 PM

My dad got banned from Facebook because he didn't upload a photo. He never used his account.

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 02:09 PM

Very strange!

nonperson 19-06-2021 02:27 PM

I didn't upload a photo for years! It's certainly very random. Might be worth contacting Facebook to find out if it's a weird error?

Some nettles seem more vicious than others! One got me badly and slyly the other day.

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 02:29 PM

Good idea!

Ouch! I guess I just brushed past it so I wouldn't have got the full sting!

one_step_closer 19-06-2021 02:44 PM

Stingy nettles are evil. Why sting innocent people?

Cacoethes 19-06-2021 02:46 PM

Same could be said about wasps!
Evil f*ckers
