How are you today lindsay?

not_so_insig 14-06-2021 12:35 PM

Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 14-06-2021 12:56 PM

Hi osc, hi insig. How are you?

not_so_insig 14-06-2021 01:03 PM

I am blooming hot but otherwise ok thanks tamobhuuta.

I've just finished session one of MIND zoom peer support. Not sure I'm a fan, feels a bit odd when the session ends and just sat there with a head full of stuff... in person may have been easier than zoom but I've no way of getting to them

anyone up to much this afternoon?

one_step_closer 14-06-2021 03:16 PM

I'm really low, how are you Beckie and Tamo?

Is everyone finding ways to cool down?

I don't like things on Zoom, are you going to continue giving it a try if there is another session being held, Hazel?

I'm going to pick up some meds for one of my cats in a bit.

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 03:21 PM

Sorry you're feeling low lindsay

I've just been to specsavers to order my new glasses
And then asda

one_step_closer 14-06-2021 03:22 PM

What are your glasses like, if you can describe them? Did you get anything nice from Asda?

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 03:27 PM

They are a red ombre effect kind of glasses!
I liked the colour. Though it's hard to see what they look like properly because I can't see!

Just the 17p lemonade! I am poor lol
I get paid on Friday though and I have enough food to last me until then.

I have a bit if a live/hate relationship with zoom... In some ways it's easier but in others it's a pain. It's only 6 sessions and it may lead to something else so I'll stick with it, i need to relearn how to interact with people in a none text environment at some point afterall

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 03:58 PM

Hazel! New series of the handmaid's tale on channel 4, Sunday 9pm

I know I saw an advert yesterday! Exciting!

though the fact itsbeen on in america already means I have seen SO MANY spoilers :plain:

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 04:20 PM

I've managed to avoid the spoilers so far!
That must be super annoying!

shadow-light 14-06-2021 04:38 PM

downside of havig american friends on facebook :laugh:

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 04:42 PM

Ah yes!
Why do the Americans always get the good stuff before us? It's not fair!

one_step_closer 14-06-2021 05:16 PM

I think the Australians see Wentworth Prison before us (well it is an Australian drama) and I am jealous of them for that.

Went out for my cats meds and it was pouring with rain.

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 05:19 PM

I've seen a few episodes of that and liked it

Oh no!

one_step_closer 14-06-2021 05:21 PM

The weather here is not hot like you're all getting.

You need to find a way to watch it all Beckie, it's really good.

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 05:24 PM

You're lucky lindsay!
Its been awful!

I think it's on whatever the channel 5 catchup is.
So I should catch up really!

nonperson 14-06-2021 09:10 PM

Aren't we getting rain and thunderstorms on Thursday?

Cacoethes 14-06-2021 09:14 PM

I hope so! I love a good thunderstorm!

shadow-light 14-06-2021 10:22 PM

I've also heard that thunderstorms are on their way

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 10:08 AM

My phone is warning me of thunderstorms!

Morning guys!

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 10:34 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 10:44 AM

Hi tamo
I'm good thanks :)
How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 10:46 AM

I'm ok, super excited about Doctors later. Do you have anything planned?

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 10:52 AM

That's good ! :)

No plans for today!
Will definitely go for a walk or two though

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 10:56 AM

Walks are good but I prefer doing exercise in front of the TV, especially in this weather.

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 11:01 AM

Yes it is very hot atm.
I've been going out for walks later in the afternoon when it gets a bit cooler

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 11:03 AM

That's wise. I accidentally put my heater on this morning!

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 11:10 AM

Oh no! Definitely don't need a heater right now! Lol

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 12:06 PM

Afternoon everyone, I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 12:16 PM

Hey lindsay!
I hope you have a good day too!
How are you doing today?

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 12:18 PM

Hi osc :) how's your day looking?

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 01:23 PM

Hello all.

tamobhuuta 15-06-2021 01:28 PM

Hi insig, how are you?

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 01:43 PM

Hi Dawn.

My gym session with my support worker was cancelled because the other service user couldn't make it so we're going on Thursday instead.

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 01:44 PM

Hi dawn

How do you feel about that lindsay?

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 01:54 PM

I am bloody brilliant thanks tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 01:59 PM

Is that the truth Dawn? If so I'm pleased for you. :-D

I'm not bothered about the day changing, I'd rather just not go at all.

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 02:02 PM

Yes it is the truth Lindsay. In case you're wondering why see the the sh discussion section.

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 02:10 PM

Well done Dawn! What an achievement!

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 02:14 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Cacoethes 15-06-2021 02:14 PM

Are you doing anything to celebrate?

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 03:25 PM

Not today but I have a tesco shopping order coming next week with a bottle of fizzy stuff in it. Also planning to buy some rewards from amazon/ebay next week too.

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 03:25 PM

Well done Dawn, definitely something to be proud and happy about.

I hope you enjoy your rewards.

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 03:29 PM

Yes it's mostly art stuff. Lorraine and I often share pictures of each others artwork on WhatsApp.

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 03:40 PM

What do you paint/draw/other?

not_so_insig 15-06-2021 04:40 PM

Mostly landscapes. I really want to do a picture of a lighthouse. I printed off the reference photo which I took.

one_step_closer 15-06-2021 05:19 PM

That would be nice, I coloured a printed lighthouse and wrote I am safe under it and it turned out well. I'm not creative enough to paint. I hope you enjoy your painting.
