Cacoethes 15-12-2022 10:16 PM

Nope I did not!
I love being busy but it is hella inconvenient sometimes!

Oooh what horsey action are we talking? Dressage? Show jumping?

not_so_insig 15-12-2022 11:46 PM

It was the puissance so showjumping. Dressage is on tomorrow.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 08:50 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 10:52 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 11:08 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Been to asda. Fitness pilates by candlelight soon! Then work.

How are you?

Zurg 16-12-2022 12:40 PM

Hi Beckie and Tamo :)

It's cold here, brrrr…. Cleaned out Findus' litter box because he made it smell like bunny poop and pee. I am braving the outside and the bicycle paths soon. Busses are cool but i hate getting cold while i wait for them when they are late.
Trying to psyche myself up for the outside with a cup of cocoa.

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 12:56 PM

Mmm cocoa.

Why by candlelight Cacoethes?

I'm going to do a wordsearch then try to read.

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 03:30 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope you're doing ok with getting everything done and your shift goes well, Beckie.

The snow is melting here and it's not as cold as it has been.

Have you been out, Kat?

That sounds like a good plan, Tamo. I like both activities you've chosen. :-) I'm useless at things like crosswords and sudoku though.

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 05:45 PM

Crosswords are too difficult. I used to like sudoku but went off them. What have you been up to osc?

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 06:13 PM

I went for my prescription as usual, washed my hair, and hoovered unenthusiastically. Done some reading too. I've just ordered doughnuts, great way to lose weight!

How has your day been, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 07:06 PM

Quiet. I got really anxious so had PRN and feeling better now. I had mash and beans for dinner.

one_step_closer 16-12-2022 07:11 PM

I'm glad the PRN helped. Mash and beans are yum. Did you not want the other part of the meal which I'm guessing was offered?

nonperson 16-12-2022 07:17 PM

Mmm mash and beans! Nice comforting wintery sort of food.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 07:18 PM

It was by candlelight because it's just a thing that she does at the end of every term!
It was actually really nice!

Work has been BUSY and loud!
I'm having a pink gin and lemonade and a steak! Payday treat!

Mash and beans is awesome.

I have been asked by several people if i want a guinea pig....my secret santa asked apparently XD
I've had to explain the complex social dynamics of guinea pigs several times!

nonperson 16-12-2022 07:21 PM

A guinea pig as a secret Santa gift would be amazing XD

Zurg 16-12-2022 07:42 PM

If someone gave me a Guinea pig i might even consider marrying them!!!!!

It was bloody cold out. Even more so this evening after sunset, brrrr…. I couldn't ride too fast as a lot of the bicycle paths hadn't been cleared. Rude!!!

I had new neighbours moving in this week. Tonight it sounds like the are putting furniture together and putting things up on the walls. Findus keeps jumping up onto the couch because the noises make him scared. Poor, wee bun-bun (but yay for more cuddles!!!!)

Donuts??? Mmmm, Lindsay :D
Don't mind if i do!!!

I hope you feel better now, Tamo.
Also, hi NP :)

tamobhuuta 16-12-2022 08:57 PM

The rest of the food looked manky but you can't go wrong with mash and beans - just not too often.

not_so_insig 16-12-2022 08:59 PM

Hello all. I havent felt as cold today. I am watching horsey action on the telly.

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 09:22 PM

I would love another guinea pig tbh!
But i have 2 boys, 3 boys almost never works because of dominance issues, and 2 boys and 1 girl and the boys would fight over the girl!

I've just got home. I put the heating on before I left work but brrr!
I can feel a draft coming from somewhere. I can only feel it sometimes. Annoying!

Awww poor bun! Hopefully he settles soon!

nonperson 16-12-2022 09:57 PM

The only answer then is to have two boys and two girls, surely? =P

Cacoethes 16-12-2022 10:11 PM

I don't have enough room!
They already take up half my living room!

My amazon package has been returned and a refund will be processed in 5-7 days. Ffs.

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 09:05 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 11:03 AM

Good morning :) how are you?

nonperson 17-12-2022 11:14 AM

Morning all. How're you both?

I'm cold and tired despite having a huge lie in and don't know what to do with myself today.

That's a bummer about Amazon. I suspect that's what will happen with mine too, except they didn't even try to deliver it again since Monday! It still says they'll try again... but when?! It's a Christmas present too... =(

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 01:09 PM

Oh dear i hope it arrives soon.

We've now got 6 people with covid but I'm still negative thank goodness. I want to have a shower but they're being funny about me having my razor, even though I was perfectly safe with it last time.

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 02:13 PM

Hey guys!

Mine was a Christmas present too.
I can't reorder it until they refund me!
My neighbour said she had a conversation with the driver, who asked her if she'd take the package, she said yes and then he drove off!

I had taekwondo this morning. It was the last one so it was kind of like a sports day at school! Split into 6 teams and we had to do things like run to the cones and back and then add press ups, sit ups, patterns etc!
My team won! We all got a tube of those fancy jelly beans for winning!
Then there was a taekwondo quiz and a music quiz! It was a lot of fun!!

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 02:22 PM

Ooo yummy, well done!

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 02:26 PM

Thanks! It was really good!

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 02:52 PM

What are you up to this afternoon?

not_so_insig 17-12-2022 03:09 PM

Afternoon all. I currently have a cat sitting on me purring away.

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 03:26 PM

I'm doing some washing and meeting up with someone later. Think that's it!


not_so_insig 17-12-2022 03:30 PM

Anyone watching the football final tomorrow?

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 04:42 PM

Football does not interest me

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 05:25 PM

Nope, I never watch football.

Aw, nice cuddles insig.

I hope you had a nice time out Cacoethes.

They let me have my razor unsupervised in the end :) so I'm all showered.

one_step_closer 17-12-2022 05:36 PM

Hey everyone. I hope you've all had a good day and it continues.

I've made a mess of my day by getting up too late.

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 05:45 PM

That's good tamo

That's a shame lindsay
There's always tomorrow!

Cacoethes 17-12-2022 06:50 PM

Omg a dessert place is now on justeat!

tamobhuuta 17-12-2022 10:47 PM


I hope things go better tomorrow osc.

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 09:23 AM

Morning everyone
I am feeling very ill!

Zurg 18-12-2022 11:13 AM

Morning Beckie.
Me too. We should start a club :D

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 11:41 AM

Oh no, you too?
What have you got?
I've got a cold i think. Along with lots of random aches and pains!

tamobhuuta 18-12-2022 11:41 AM

Sorry you two aren't feeling well. Apparently I have an infection but I feel fine.

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 11:45 AM

Thanks tamo!

Are you on antibiotics?
I generally feel fine with infections tbh! They can still be bad though.

tamobhuuta 18-12-2022 11:59 AM

No, I haven't seen the doctor yet. My urine sample had lucocytes (?) in it.

I hope you feel better soon.

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 12:03 PM

I always get UTIs in hospital for some reason! Never when I'm at home. It's weird! Don't tend to get symptoms though. Usually picked up by accident.

Thank you
Currently psyching myself up to drink the disgusting lemsip type drink. I like actual lemsip, but this asda version has menthol in it and it's gross

Zurg 18-12-2022 12:17 PM

Just a sore throat and feeling a bit rubbish for me. But it can take a turn for the worse soon enough, in my experience. However, i do not get ill very often, there can be years between. But when i do i legit feel like death is breathing down my neck XD

Bun-bun has a minor stomach problem. He is making more of the soft kind of poop and apparently he can't poop anywhere Except on my carpets. I need to only feed him hay for a few days which makes me feel awful because he loves his treats and pellets. But i don't want it to turn into legit diarrhea.
Feeling rubbish myself and needing to clean the litter box today made me very, very grumpy. Still need to hoover the rest of my flat now that i've done the livingroom.

I hope you Will stay feeling okay, Tamo. Are you having any visitors today?? :)

Beckie, trust the menthol in whatever shape it comes!!! It is vile but it is effective!!!

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 12:38 PM

I'm the same really!
Rarely get ill.
It was bound to happen though. Everyone at work has been ill. Chest infections, colds, covid etc.

Aww poor bun.

I downed it. Wasn't actually too bad!
I just want to feel better enough to work tomorrow. I can't afford to take time off! Plus work is super busy

tamobhuuta 18-12-2022 01:15 PM

I just had a visit from my mum and L is visiting later :) no hugs because I don't want what you have got!

Cacoethes 18-12-2022 01:19 PM

That's nice :)
Hope you have a good visit with L!

I don't blame you!

nonperson 18-12-2022 03:11 PM

The Great Thaw has begun! Hope everyone's enjoying the tropical temperatures.
