Maybe some of those things will have a new excitement factor added as you haven't done them for a while.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 08:51 PM

Yes I think so!
I've kind of missed asda!

nonperson 05-01-2022 08:53 PM

You know they'll have changed all the shelves around when you go back.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 08:59 PM

They'd better bloody not!!!!

nonperson 05-01-2022 09:09 PM

Buy an Easter egg if you see one

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 09:20 PM

Forgot how early the easter eggs go out!

nonperson 05-01-2022 09:27 PM

Creme eggs are out already

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 09:29 PM

I do love a creme egg

nonperson 05-01-2022 09:37 PM

I don't like them as much as I used to. I think my tastebuds are more savoury these days.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 09:39 PM

I've found that as I've got older tbh!
I used to be able to live on sweets!
But not anymore!

nonperson 05-01-2022 09:50 PM

My nearly 38 year old tastebuds don't even want a kitkat nowadays.

Enjoy them while you can everyone.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 09:57 PM

I do still enjoy chocolate but I never buy it!

I brought in those lindor chocolates to work on Christmas eve (they disappeared very quickly!) And I had one. It was delicious tbh!
Big boss ate about half the box! (Not an exaggeration!)

nonperson 05-01-2022 09:58 PM

Lindor is nice.

I went to a different and bigger Sainsburys today and they had a Lindor pick and mix!!!!

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:10 PM

Lindor pick and mix?!
Sainsburys have upped their game!

nonperson 05-01-2022 10:12 PM

I know! I was very tempted.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:23 PM

The thing is with lindor is that you can't just have one!

nonperson 05-01-2022 10:32 PM

And have to sample one of each flavour.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:34 PM


nonperson 05-01-2022 10:37 PM

And they had lots of different flavours that you can't get in the normal boxes.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:39 PM

Too bad sainsburys is just that little bit too far away!

nonperson 05-01-2022 10:56 PM

Boo. My local is small and doesn't do it either.

nonperson 06-01-2022 12:08 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 06-01-2022 12:38 AM

Hello nonperson

nonperson 06-01-2022 01:03 AM

Hi Dawn. How're you this fine morning?

not_so_insig 06-01-2022 01:43 AM

I am ok thanks. How's be you?

nonperson 06-01-2022 01:46 AM

I'm alright. Should probably be taking myself to bed though.

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 05:29 AM


shadow-light 06-01-2022 09:17 AM


Cacoethes 06-01-2022 09:19 AM


How are you?

shadow-light 06-01-2022 09:48 AM

Honest answer? Not entirely sure...


Cacoethes 06-01-2022 10:06 AM

I can relate to that

I have a lot of sh*t going on so that sucks
Have to go out in a minute and I don't want to because it's cold!

tamobhuuta 06-01-2022 10:43 AM

Morning all. FYI we have frost and may even get snow!

shadow-light 06-01-2022 10:44 AM

lots of frost here too! Doubt we will get snow though, rarely do here as the hills get it all and there's nothing left once the clouds reach us :laugh:

tamobhuuta 06-01-2022 10:56 AM

It's like that here, we're in a little bowl.

How are you?

shadow-light 06-01-2022 11:04 AM

Not sure... having some stuff going on, few people have told me it's in my head and I trust them but still having issues with it. Got a zoom meeting in a minute so at least that may distract my brain

Hiw are you?

tamobhuuta 06-01-2022 11:08 AM

Heads can be a pain. I've never done a zoom call, it seems a bit scary.

I am ok, I might have a jama day.

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 11:23 AM

Very frosty here too!

Hope your zoom call goes ok Hazel!

Jama day sounds good tamo!

I went into the piercing place to get my daith ring put back in (it was tricky) and impulsively booked a tattoo for the 25th! Yaaaayy!!!

tamobhuuta 06-01-2022 11:35 AM

That really is impulsive! Do you know what design you want?

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 11:38 AM

Yeah. I've been planning it for ages!

tamobhuuta 06-01-2022 11:52 AM

I've been thinking of getting a tattoo but I don't think I'd be good with the pain lol.

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 11:56 AM

The level of pain depends on where you get tattooed!
Like my foot (a bony area) was quite painful, but my back I barely felt!
It doesn't hurt as much as you think it would though!
I've been getting laser removal on a tattoo and that hurts waaaaaay more!!!

shadow-light 06-01-2022 01:12 PM

I want a tattoo

Zero chance of affording one though

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 01:21 PM

I can only just about afford it because I'm getting it done by a junior artist! (Half the price of a regular artist)
Her work is awesome though. I've followed her on Instagram for a while.
I couldn't afford the deposit today though. So I'm gonna pop in tomorrow morning because tomorrow is payday!

How is it not even 1:30 yet?!

shadow-light 06-01-2022 01:30 PM

Today is dragging I agree...

My income is a mess at the moment :laugh: still waiting for PIP to decide if i can have anything from them

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 01:39 PM

Ugh. PIP do like to take their sweet time!

shadow-light 06-01-2022 01:43 PM

Yep... I applied in March 2021... got assessed in Sep 2021, zero points in Oct 2021 (apparently attending an online college course means I can travel?) and not waiting in mandatory reconsideration
I don't think this waiting thing is helping my anxiety or "paranoia" issues either

What is the taboo you're getting? Have you already said?

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 01:47 PM

They suck.
I was really lucky with mine. I didn't even need to talk to them! They just called my cpn!
I think I'm getting more than I deserve though :ermm:

I'm not telling anyone. Lol!

shadow-light 06-01-2022 02:13 PM

Ooo secret tattoo! I have a small list of ones I want :laugh: but... even without the money issue I don't like being touched, so could still be an issue... I assume they wear gloves though so might be ok

I prefered it back when it was DLA every since it switched to PIP I have had problems with it... this is the 3rd time I've tried, but the first time I have bothered with the reconsideration (and probably the appeal). Last 2 times I just got the zero points and HUGELY over reacted meaning I was in no state to appeal

Cacoethes 06-01-2022 02:34 PM

They definitely wear gloves!
Well, any actual legit tattoo artist will wear gloves!
And they don't even really touch you that much. Maybe sometimes to keep a body part steady (if needed) and to wipe excess ink off you. Other than that it's just the needle!

The whole system sucks.
If it weren't for the cmht, I'd probably get 0 points too.
It's messed up for mental health

shadow-light 06-01-2022 02:38 PM

i'm struggling to even get the CMHT to take me seriously :laugh: let alone the DWP. And then the PIP assesment report refered to autism as a "learning difficulty not a disability" and tried to claim that I had aquired it as an adult... In my first PIP appliation they claimed that I had "recovered from autism and ADHD" and "showed no signs of mentally ill health"... so, ye... they don't even know what they are talking about

Makes sense about the gloves, I get this fear a lot I had the same fear about the vaccine and every GP visit despite KNWOING that they will have gloves on :laugh: damn brain troll
