Cacoethes 29-11-2022 08:30 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Though i forgot to buy coffee yesterday so I am coffee-less this morning :(

How are you?

Zurg 29-11-2022 09:45 AM

Noooooo!!! There really should be an emergency number to call in the event of being out of coffee!!!! That is some really serious business!!!! :(

I'm okay. Trying to mentally prepare myself for putting bun-bun in his travel bag so we can go the vet for his first nail trimming….!!! (I'm a bit terrified of this whole ordeal)

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 11:31 AM

There really should!

May the force be with you!

My cpn has cancelled on me :eyeroll:

one_step_closer 29-11-2022 11:54 AM

Morning everyone.

Get some coffee asap, Beckie. You are so brave for managing without it. :tongue2: Do you need to speak to your CPN? Has another appointment been made?

I hope everything goes ok with bun bun, Kat. You can do this!

tamobhuuta 29-11-2022 12:14 PM

Hi everyone.
Good luck at the vet Zurg.
Sorry your CPN cancelled Cacoethes. Do you have anything else on today?
How are you osc?

I'm meant to have ward rounds soon.

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 12:28 PM

Nah i don't need to speak to her. Apparently she'll rearrange when she's back. Off sick Apparently. Probably got this horrible cold that everyone seems to be getting!

I have pilates and glow beatz
Also need to go to asda and clean out the boys.
And shower!

Hope ward round goes ok!

Zurg 29-11-2022 12:47 PM

Aww, Findus was such a good boy!!!! He didn't attempt to eat the vet or anything. But he found it a bit stressful and is now having a nap in his favourite place underneath one of the birdcages <3

I hope your ward round goes okay, Tamo :) hopefully they Will have some positive news or plans or something!!!

Hi Lindsay *waves*

Beckie!!!! Go and find some coffee!!!! That's an order!!!

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 12:51 PM

Aww bless him!

I need to book a vet appointment for the boys. Nothing is wrong with them, just want to get them a check up!

I'm off to asda to get coffee!

Zurg 29-11-2022 02:02 PM

One of my piggies hated having her nails trimmed and i had to take her to the vet for that. It was impossible for me to do it alone!!! The vets used to look at me with a bit of pity and 'aw, a very unskilled piggie owner'-look on their faces. Which changed rather fast when i handed her over and it was their problem!! I Think she nearly traumatised one of the vets. He looked like he was about to cry at the end….

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 02:17 PM

Haha! Demon piggie XD

The lady at the rescue i got them from said she offers nail trimming. Only thing is, she's 2 trains and a bit of a walk away! So if I can't do it myself, i think I'll just go to the vets! I don't know if I'll be able to do it tbh. Neither of them are fans of being held! It is still early days though I guess!

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 02:24 PM

Ok they are booked in to the vets for Friday morning!
Bit freaked out because i asked if i could book an appointment for my 2 guinea pigs and she asked if there were any concerns and I said no I just got them a couple of weeks ago and want to check they're ok. And then she said 'is this for Merry and Pippin?'
Whaaat?! Idk if she just remembered the email i sent or maybe my phone number showed up???
Just weird lol!

Elmer 29-11-2022 02:55 PM

^ they'll have put your details on their system when you first contacted them, you're ok!

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 03:13 PM

Thanks Lio!
Thought that might be the case but it took me by surprise!

maii 29-11-2022 05:35 PM

HI all!
Sorry I've not been posting, but I've been reading, just have zero energy and motivation lately to even get through the day. I do hope everyone is alright.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2022 06:18 PM

Hi Maii, good to see you.

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 06:39 PM


one_step_closer 29-11-2022 06:45 PM

Hi Maii, I hope you feel better soon.

Hi everyone.

What are you all doing with the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 06:54 PM

I have glow beatz at 7:30!
Then need to shower.
About to eat dinner. The furry potatoes are staring at me because i dared go into the kitchen and returned with food for myself and not them.....

Zurg 29-11-2022 07:51 PM

Sacrilegde, Beckie!!!! How dare you Think of sustaining yourself and not the tiny, angelic and innocent beasts???? Be careful!!! They might be plotting a devious revenge as we speak….

I keep snuggling bun-bun. He was so sweet and i want to give him alll the treats in the world.
I Think the birdies might have been a tad disappointed of his return though ;)

Cacoethes 29-11-2022 08:07 PM

I know! I'm a terrible person!
They probably are tbh XD

Aww sweet!

maii 29-11-2022 11:59 PM

Hi everyone.

Hi, good to see you too :cool:

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 09:35 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 10:19 AM

Morning all. How's things going Beckie?

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 10:39 AM

Not bad thanks!
Got to go to royal papworth for a CT angiogram today.
I can only have caffeine for the next 20 mins! Appointment is at 2pm, no caffeine 4 hours before Appointment.

How are you dawn?
Much planned today?

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 10:45 AM

I am off to the city centre today to do stuff. Including donating a cake stand to the local Cats Protection charity shop. They got broken into recently so are wanting donations. I donated before the break in but found the cake stand afterwards. It's an unwanted present and brand new in box. I will never use it so they might as well have it.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 10:51 AM

That's cool.
And who breaks into a charity shop??

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 10:52 AM

Exactly Beckie.

Good luck with your hospital appointment!

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 11:01 AM

When I've volunteered in charity shops, we got people stealing all the time. Just seemed very wrong!

Thank you!

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 11:05 AM

Hope the trains are ok for you if you're going by train. I am unsure where that particular hospital is in relation to you.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 11:12 AM

Thank you!
Trains are currently looking ok!
It's 2 trains to Cambridge and then a bus to addenbrookes. And then i have to find the royal Papworth. Addenbrookes is a HUGE site!
I'm just glad that it's not actually in Papworth anymore. Because that would be a real pain to get to!

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 11:21 AM

Sounds an epic journey!

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 11:23 AM

Had worse journeys! Lol!
Should be fine. Just gutted i can't have anymore caffeine now!

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 11:26 AM

You will have to drink lemonade or water.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 11:32 AM

Haven't had lemonade in ages! Well, not without pink gin in it lol!
But yes i will.

one_step_closer 30-11-2022 12:15 PM

I hope everything goes well, Beckie. You can treat yourself to a coffee afterwards if you're allowed! I hope you're not having too bad cravings. You always have to do so much travelling to get anywhere.

That's kind of you to be donating the cake stand, Dawn. Will you be getting up to much else when you go out?

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 12:28 PM

According to the letter, I'll be able to eat and drink normally after the appointment!
I guess so! I'm used to it though!
Just lucky that i live less than 5 mins from the train station!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 30-11-2022 03:25 PM

I'm not sure how I am. Managing to get things done anyway. RYL bin night!

I hope your appointment is going well.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 03:27 PM

That's something at least!
Yes bin night!
Thank goodness because my bin is full!

Got gown on and cannula in!
Royal Papworth is very fancy and modern!

one_step_closer 30-11-2022 03:28 PM

How are you replying when you're supposed to be getting things done?!

I saw that hospital on TV, did look very modern.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 03:30 PM

I'm sat in the imaging waiting room!
There's a woman with headphones in and she's singing which is a bit annoying

not_so_insig 30-11-2022 03:41 PM

I didnt get to the charity shop as I remembered that they're shut on a Wednesday. I had an appointment in the city so went to that. Some woman on the bus had stuff for the charity shop and she forgot so had to being it back with her.

Cacoethes 30-11-2022 05:50 PM

On the way home!
Managed to get the train in time but it's the slow one so it's stopping EVERYWHERE!

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 09:11 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 01-12-2022 11:37 AM

Morning :) how are you? I opened my Advent calendar from L. It's my first chocolate one ever. Today was a curly wurly.

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 11:47 AM

I'm meh!
I haven't had an advent calender in many years!

not_so_insig 01-12-2022 12:20 PM

I have 3 advent calendars. One is an yankee candle one though.

tamobhuuta 01-12-2022 02:08 PM

Ooo posh insig!
You must be a proper grown up Cacoethes (no offence insig!)
I have 3 too. One off L (the chocolate one) one off Granma and one off my godmother.

Cacoethes 01-12-2022 02:22 PM

Definitely not a proper grown up!
Just that i don't have anyone to buy me one! Or can justify the expense. If you think about it, it's a lot of money for 25 tiny pieces of chocolate!
Can probably get a good couple of meals for the price of an advent calendar!

tamobhuuta 01-12-2022 05:14 PM

My chocolate one is greedily big.

one_step_closer 01-12-2022 05:52 PM

Mmm, chocolate advent calendars. I don't have any advent calendars this year. I'd just eat all the chocolate if it was a chocolate one.
