I'm ok. I'm going to meet someone who might be my spiritual director later.

Hi insig :) you OK?

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 11:56 AM

No I am not. My back aches and this is the second day in a row I have woken up early because of the heat. I am bloody boiling. The thing is there's naff all on the telly and I cant leave the flat because I am expecting amazon parcel today. Well several parcels.

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 12:02 PM

But other than the above i am ok. I am just grumpy today.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 12:05 PM

That will be nice tamo

Yeah i think we're all suffering with the heat right now

one_step_closer 12-07-2022 12:15 PM

Hi everyone.

I have never tried pumpkin pie.

I hope your meeting goes well, Tamo.

Sorry to hear you're having a hard time, Dawn. You're allowed to be grumpy but I hope you can find some things to do to make you feel better.

What are you doing today, Beckie?

I'm going to the gym group at 1pm. It's not too hot here and the gym will have air con. Overall I hate the gym though!

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 12:18 PM

My cat was clearly suffering from the heat yesterday. She was very lethargic and didnt move much. Spent most of the day asleep. She seems livelier atm.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 12:20 PM

I have pilates and glow beatz.
But they aren't until later.
I need to pick up my prescription also but will do that after pilates, the studio is only a few doors down from the pharmacy!

Good luck with the gym group Lindsay
Well done for persevering with it

one_step_closer 12-07-2022 12:29 PM

I'm glad your cat is seeming better, Dawn.

Crookshanks is just his usual self. It's a year since Church died, it might actually be a year and a day because I'm getting it from my fb memories and I didn't post till it was the next day because it was late at night that he died and I wanted to make sure my brother knew first. I miss him.

Have you been to a pilates class yet, Beckie? I hope you get everything done and enjoy your day.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 12:32 PM

That must be hard lindsay
Take care of yourself today

Nope this is my first one!
They sent a video to watch of how to use the pilates equipment and it looks very complicated! I'm sure it's not though.
The class isn't until 3:30
Thank you :)

one_step_closer 12-07-2022 12:38 PM

The only equipment I used in Pilates was a small ball to lie on and I kept falling off. I was generally rubbish and the instructor kept having to help me. I hope you get on better!

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 12:41 PM

This studio has these bed/platform things with parts that move and have bars and adjustable springs and all sorts of attachments!
Thank you! I'll probably have to ask for lots of help so i hope no one minds!

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 02:14 PM

It rained before! But it's still bloody hot. I am going for a shower since my amazon shopping order isn't due yet.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 02:19 PM

It's just started raining here!
Hopefully it will clear the air a bit

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 04:55 PM

Hope you didn't get wet Beckie!

one_step_closer 12-07-2022 06:00 PM

There was a little shower when I was about to leave for the gym group so I put my jacket on just in case but it came to nothing. In the end we didn't go to the gym. Someone else was covering it and the other service user was feeling a bit dizzy and I said I felt mentally and physically awful so we just got a Costa and went for a walk to find Dinosaurs that were placed around the town.

How was pilates, Beckie?

How has everyones day been?

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 06:13 PM

I feel a bit physically ill atm but I have stopped feeling grumpy. It's cooler now but still hot. I am still waiting for amazon. I have my parents coming later and it might come when they're here. I will get a lecture because I have more than one package.

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 06:26 PM

It didn't rain enough for that!
I wouldn't have minded getting wet if it meant this horrible mugginess went away!

That actually sounds better than gym group lindsay! Dinosaurs!

Pilates was great thanks! Turns out i have basically no core strength though XD
Really struggled with a couple of moves. But i did not fall off the moving bed thing and everyone was SO nice.
One of the ladies gave me her IG so when i have the money to get a membership, she can recommend me and we both get 25 off. I was planning to get a membership anyway so that would be good!

Sorry you're not feeling great dawn
And i hope the package doesn't turn up while your parents are there

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 06:36 PM

Thanks Beckie. I feel a bit better now as I have had some food. Maybe it was to do with low blood sugar. Idk.

Yes I hope that it dont come when my parents are here because I shall get a lecture on the stuff I bought. They see half the stuff I buy as a "waste of money".

Cacoethes 12-07-2022 07:25 PM

Could have been!

Well it's not their money!

not_so_insig 12-07-2022 09:25 PM

It came about 7.15 pm. It came when my parents were here.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 08:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 11:07 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 11:09 AM

I'm ok thanks!
It seems to have cooled down a bit now thankfully!


one_step_closer 13-07-2022 11:38 AM

Morning everyone. What is everyone doing today?

I'm going to the walking group at 1pm. My support worker is back and taking the group. I'll have to tell her I haven't been to the gym group or some of the walking groups for ages (because she'll ask about how the groups were while she was away) and she'll say did I not go yesterday and I'll have to fess up to our walk yesterday.

It's cloudy and breezy here with some warmth. The weather apps don't say it's going to rain but the clouds are dark.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 12:00 PM

Hey lindsay!

I have work and then glow beatz. Need to put meds in dosset box at some point too. And I'll most definitely need to shower after glow beatz!

I hope you manage to enjoy it lindsay. And that your support worker isn't too annoyed!

It's the same here lindsay. Quite a nice change!
It's meant to be 37 next Tuesday. I'm going to melt!

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 04:02 PM

How was your walking group osc?

There's a nice cool breeze here.

one_step_closer 13-07-2022 04:31 PM

It was just me and my support worker at the walk. A lot of the time it's just me at the groups because one of the other people isn't well right now and the other person has plans a lot of the time. The walk was good.

I hope your day is going well, Beckie.

What have you been up to, Tamo?

not_so_insig 13-07-2022 05:11 PM

Afternoon all. I noticed that the sign saying that my road is closed next week says they're only working between 8 am to 5 pm. So hopefully if my Internet goes down it will only be between those hours so hopefully I will be able to come online during the evenings next week. I already rescheduled my tesco delivery to come between 5 and 6 pm next Tuesday.

one_step_closer 13-07-2022 05:53 PM

I hope it doesn't cause you too much bother, Dawn.

not_so_insig 13-07-2022 06:01 PM

Yes I hope so too.

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 07:31 PM

A bit of reading, tv, praying. Just normal stuff.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 07:53 PM

Hey guys!
Work was busy but was fine!
Didn't get to leave early which is probably a good thing because money!
Had to walk home instead of bus because it's glow beatz soon :-D

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 08:20 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 11:41 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 11:48 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Bit tired

How are you?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 11:59 AM

I'm ok. Feeling somewhat relieved because the incompetent CMHT psych has handed my sister's meds over to the competent psych in charge of her ketamine!

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 12:06 PM

That's good

Have you got much planned for today?

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 12:27 PM

Morning all. I am bloody boiling but I slept for longer than what I have been doing. Would have still been asleep if it weren't for the postman but it was an important parcel as it was a redelivery.

It's ryl bin day! They have collected my ordinary bin but not the recycling yet. The ordinary bin was the most important.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 12:30 PM

My ordinary bin is full to the brim!
The bin men don't usually come until a bit later here though

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 12:36 PM

My dad's in charge of bins thank goodness.

I'll probably spend the day in the garden, reading etc

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 12:38 PM

My neighbour has put herself in charge of most of the bins in our little area. But she only puts out the bins of people she likes

Sounds good

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 02:35 PM

Good job she likes you Beckie!

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 02:42 PM

Yep! It would be a bit awkward if she didn't!

I've just had someone ride past me on a bike wearing a PUFFA JACKET!!!

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 02:43 PM

Who couldn't like Beckie? (Totally sucking up here!).

It's dull and breezy here. I think Central Scotland is the only place that isn't having a heatwave. The rest of Scotland has been at points.

My bins have been being collected later than usual for the past few weeks.

I'm taking Crookshanks to the vet later on to see if his weight is ok and what I should be feeding him. Not looking forward to getting taxis.

I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 02:49 PM

Haha! Aww thanks Lindsay! :-D

It's sunny and warm here but not as horrible as it has been.

My bins have been collected now. I think the bin man has some form of ocd because he has lined up all the bins in a perfect row instead of chucking them anywhere like normal!

I hope it goes ok Lindsay
I don't like getting taxis either

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 02:54 PM

A perfect row of bins sounds better than just chucking them everywhere. I'm always worried I'll pick up the wrong bin or someone else will pick up my bin which my neighbour has done before and I had to sneak into their garden when they were out to switch the bins and they had already put something in my bin.

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 03:05 PM

Dawn, I saw you mentioned The Railway Children in the classic films thread. Do you like that film? Have you seen there's a second one coming out in the cinema? I'll probably just wait till it comes out on dvd.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 03:12 PM

I have rainbow coloured numbers on my bin so it would be hard for someone to take mine by mistake!

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 04:56 PM

Lindsay The Railway Children is my second ever favourite film. I have all 3 versions with Jenny Agutta on dvd. I am definitely going to buy the sequel on dvd when it comes out.

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 06:03 PM

Weirdly I enjoyed picking numbers for my bins. Mine are shaped as houses with the number in the middle. It depends what angle the bin people leave the bins as to whether they get mixed up or not, like if you can't see the number.

Will you see it at the cinema too, Dawn?
