Always give yourself credit for the little wins.

one_step_closer 08-12-2022 07:13 PM

Just do what you can, Kat. And don't be so hard on yourself. Enjoy your coffee. :-)

Zurg 08-12-2022 08:16 PM

I did enjoy my coffee, Lindsay :)
And thanks Tamo :)

I'm having a cup of tea now.
I just felt very spacey for some reason so decided to Ground by sitting a minute on my balcony. Man, that was rather chilly, brrr…. Even Findus who likes to roam around out there, decided that it was too cold for his wee, furry paws and ran inside. But i saw a star!!! And it is ridiculously hard to spot any when you live in the middle of a city so i am Well chuffed :D

Cacoethes 08-12-2022 08:20 PM

We all have different capacities to do different things zurg!

Zurg 08-12-2022 09:49 PM

True dat, Beckie.

I just end up always feeling like i'm behind with things. I have friends with full time jobs, hobbies and they are even social in their spare time. How the hell that is possible is Well beyond me.
Maybe they're thinking 'how the hell does she survive day after day???'

My perspective might be a bit tainted by my crazyness…. ;)

Cacoethes 08-12-2022 10:06 PM

I've been in both situations!
I used to not really do anything. And definitely needed days in a week where I literally just watched tv!
But now I'm pretty sure I'd go insane if i tried that now XD
just different ways of living and different personalities and stuff!

Cacoethes 09-12-2022 09:11 AM

Morning everyone!
I kind of got a lie in. Got up about 7:30

Zurg 09-12-2022 11:38 AM

Woop, woop for a lie in :)

Are you doing anything exciting today???

The peak of my excitement so far has been to clean Findus' litter box XD

Cacoethes 09-12-2022 12:33 PM

Not really!
Just work. Boooo!
I almost volunteered to work tonight, but we have a table of 36 booked in for their xmas meal tonight. So that's a hard NO!

Ooooh you party animal! XD

one_step_closer 09-12-2022 01:02 PM

Sounds like something to stay well away from, Beckie!

I think I'd rather clean a rabbit's litter box than a cat's litter box.

Cacoethes 09-12-2022 01:11 PM

Most definitely!

Cat poop is much worse than rabbit poop!
I remember having to clear out the barn (where the cats lived) and they used to go by the horse rugs. Gross. We'd also find disembowelled small animals (mainly mice and rabbits)

not_so_insig 09-12-2022 01:12 PM

Afternoon all. My cat is such a good boy so far. Didnt wake me up and has so far left the Christmas tree alone.

tamobhuuta 09-12-2022 02:46 PM

Hi everyone! I hope my sister gets a new cat soon, I miss Zs cuddles. And his naughtiness!

one_step_closer 09-12-2022 03:24 PM

Cats are mostly great.

What a good boy you have there, Dawn, are you sure he's a cat?!

Wouldn't you be allowed a cat, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 09-12-2022 04:32 PM

I'd be allowed one but I'm not sure I want the responsibility.

one_step_closer 09-12-2022 06:00 PM

Ah, yes. They do need a lot of care etc. You had it good with seeing your sisters cat then. Do you think she'll get another?

Zurg 09-12-2022 07:40 PM

If i lived in a big House on a big property, i'd have loads of pets.
Dogs, cats, chickens, birds, snails, bunnies, a cow, an alpaca, an emu or orstrich, a huge tortoise and mini goats and and and…. Well…. It's probably a good thing i'll never get that opportunity ;)

Maybe i should just find a zoo and move into that??

Tamo, i'm like that with kids, lol. They are great and awesome but i don't need my own ;)

Cacoethes 09-12-2022 09:05 PM

I tried to buy a baby emu once.

Hey guys!
Just home.
Was SUPER busy today! Then stayed for a couple of gins after work.
Rhubarb and ginger gin with lemonade. Delicious!

Zurg 09-12-2022 09:12 PM

Woah!!!! You tried to purchase an emu??? Was it on the black market??? Did someone smuggle a baby emu out of Australia??? And then casually attempted to sell it???? What did it cost??? Or was it still in an egg???? Soooo many questions XD

Cacoethes 09-12-2022 09:24 PM

You can literally just buy them online!
An emu chick was 20 if i remember correctly
There are breeders all over the place. You don't need to ship them from Australia!

Zurg 10-12-2022 09:26 AM

Omg!!! Seeing this info just improved this morning by 936% :D
An emu!!! I can get a pet emu <3

Also, morning all :)
How is everyone?

Cacoethes 10-12-2022 09:33 AM

Yes you can!

I'm ok! Slight headache.

tamobhuuta 10-12-2022 01:34 PM

Hello. I think I might have to get an emu too.

Cacoethes 10-12-2022 01:52 PM

Dooo it!

I am at work. Mum changed plans again and work needed people. So I had to break a work shirt out of the washing machine and dry it on the radiator XD

one_step_closer 10-12-2022 02:42 PM

I think I'll skip joining the Emu owners club, but, enjoy!

How long are you at work for, Beckie? I hope you have a good shift.

tamobhuuta 10-12-2022 02:49 PM

More monies though, right, Cacoethes?
Edit that sounds bad, obviously it would be best to see your mum!
How are you osc?
I want to watch a Christmas movie but My5 won't let me log on.

one_step_closer 10-12-2022 03:07 PM

Oh no, Tamo. Can you change your password or is something else wrong? My5 has so many Christmas films on it. Can you access another catch up player that might have some?

I'm trying to be ok.

tamobhuuta 10-12-2022 05:03 PM

I tried to change my password but haven't received the email. Luckily disney+ have some. I'm watching miracle on 34th street.

*offers hugs*

one_step_closer 10-12-2022 05:42 PM

I think the Home Alone films are my favourites although I'm not much of a film person. People keep telling me to watch Elf so I've ordered it and hope I can make myself watch it.

Zurg 10-12-2022 06:36 PM

Elf is a seriously good movie!!!! I'm not really a fan of Christmas movies but Elf and the Muppets version of A Christmas Carol, they make me go woop, woop :D

I've spent the day at my friends' place, being loved by their tiny and, oh-so cute chihuahua <3

not_so_insig 10-12-2022 07:09 PM

Santa Claus the movie is my favourite film. I even referenced it when I wrote to Judy Cornwell.

Cacoethes 10-12-2022 07:56 PM

I wouldn't be seeing my mum anyway tamo! I never see her apart from a wave when she drops jasmine off lol

Was only at work until 5

tamobhuuta 10-12-2022 08:36 PM

I thought you said your mum changed her plans Cacoethes?

L fixed my5, she basically turned it off and on again!

Cacoethes 10-12-2022 08:56 PM

Yeah. They were going sofa shopping in London (because they can't shop online like normal people) and I was going to look after jasmine. But she changed plans.


Cacoethes 11-12-2022 09:06 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 12:34 PM

Morning :)

I had a visit from my mum just now.

one_step_closer 11-12-2022 12:47 PM

Morning, almost afternoon. How are you all?

Did you have a nice visit, Tamo?

Zurg 11-12-2022 01:16 PM

Hello all :)
Hope it was a nice visit, Tamo.
How is everyone?

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 01:27 PM

It was a nice visit.

For some reason the nurse has decided I'm not allowed to keep the bag I keep my laundry in, in my room.

one_step_closer 11-12-2022 03:06 PM

Hi Kat, how are you?

I'm not sure how I am.

I'm glad you had a nice visit, Tamo. Does it bother you that you don't have the bag?

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 03:51 PM

Yes, just because it seems arbitrary, I can't hurt myself with it and I've had it in my room since my last ward rounds.

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 04:01 PM

Nurses often randomly decide thing that make no sense.
I once had my wooden hairbrush and toothpaste (but not everything else?) Taken away. I honestly do not understand their logic, if there is any.

I'm with Jasmine. We've been to my work for lunch, then asda and peacocks! Now watching aladdin.

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 04:05 PM

What's peacocks? Original aladdin or live action version?

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 04:32 PM

It's a clothes shop!
Jasmine needed some gloves.

Live action version

tamobhuuta 11-12-2022 04:54 PM

Ah cool

one_step_closer 11-12-2022 05:50 PM

Sounds like you and Jasmine are having a good day, Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 06:14 PM

Yes we have had a good day!
She's just been picked up.
Need to shower tonight. Booo!

one_step_closer 11-12-2022 06:58 PM

Have you got nice smelling shampoo and shower gel to make it a bit more pleasant?

Cacoethes 11-12-2022 07:17 PM

I have showered now!
My showers are super short anyway, it's just effort!

maii 11-12-2022 08:06 PM

I do live VO5 shampoo (2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner)

Its really cheap now here.
