Thank you both <3

How are you guys doing?

[Luna] 30-04-2021 01:50 PM

Actually feeling pretty shitty myself. Not sure what to do with myself atm.

tamobhuuta 30-04-2021 02:21 PM

I am sad because doctors isn't on.

Cacoethes 30-04-2021 02:37 PM

Sorry to hear that Luna
At risk of sounding like the crisis team, do you have any good distractions you can use?

That's a shame tamo

I'm upset because I'm not allowed out for fresh air.
Informal my arse!!!

shadow-light 30-04-2021 02:43 PM

looks like bit of a rubbish day all round...

can't think of much to suggest...

Cacoethes 30-04-2021 05:40 PM

It is.

What have you been up to today?

shadow-light 30-04-2021 07:01 PM

not much tidied out some cupboards, been food shopping, in between netflix binging... oh and just used a hammer to smash up some coffee beans as I dont own a grinder :laugh:

Cacoethes 30-04-2021 07:04 PM

Sounds like a fairly productive day!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2021 12:50 PM

Almost good afternoon people :)

Cacoethes 01-05-2021 01:54 PM

Afternoon tamo
I woke up for meds but other than that been asleep until now!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2021 02:29 PM

Is that good or bad?

Cacoethes 01-05-2021 03:16 PM

I'm not sure!

I was just allowed out for fresh air though. I had to go on my own with staff and not with the other girls but i still got out!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2021 04:35 PM

Ooo, fresh air.

My sister came to see us so we had to sit in the cold until the sun came out.

Sorry to flaunt my fresh air!

Cacoethes 01-05-2021 04:42 PM

Haha! No worries

Was it a nice visit?

tamobhuuta 01-05-2021 05:55 PM

Yes it was :) what are you up to?

Cacoethes 01-05-2021 05:59 PM

Good :)

Not a lot. Just facetimed with Jasmine which was lovely and now watching taskmaster

shadow-light 01-05-2021 08:36 PM

that last nights taskmaster? The stepping stones task was halarious and irfuriating :laugh:

Cacoethes 01-05-2021 10:05 PM

I had to catch up with the last 2 episodes

It totally was!
Mike's fart made me cringe so much!

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 11:18 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 02-05-2021 11:38 AM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 11:58 AM

I'm ok thanks
Finally got to have a shower and change clothes this morning!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 02-05-2021 12:57 PM

I'm ok, persuading myself to get dressed.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 01:00 PM

Getting dressed is good.
I'm still stuck in a hospital gown but i did get a fresh one today!

tamobhuuta 02-05-2021 01:16 PM

That sucks but at least you are clean. I am dressed!

nonperson 02-05-2021 01:29 PM

Hey guys.

Well done for showering and dressing!

I am also clean and think I've finally found a good shampoo bar/conditioner bar combo that suits my hair. *thumbs up*

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 01:31 PM

Well done tamo!

Thanks np :)

Yay that is good!

nonperson 02-05-2021 01:34 PM

It is. Plastic free and all that.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 01:36 PM

My family are slowly going plastic free.
My mum has a friend that makes all organic soaps and moisturisers and shampoo bars etc.

nonperson 02-05-2021 01:41 PM

That's really cool. There seem to be so many options out there now.

I'm trying to make changes where I can.

tamobhuuta 02-05-2021 01:55 PM

I am very bad, the only eco thing thing i do is recycling.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 02:10 PM

Yes it's great!
I do a lot of recycling but haven't quite moved on to plastic free soaps and stuff

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 02:20 PM

I do recycling but I don't think that they do shampoo bars suitable for dandruff. At least I havent seen any. Also I have allergies so hate to buy something only to find out I am allergic to it.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 02:24 PM

Yeah you have to be careful with allergies

I'm hoping to go out for some fresh air soon.
If the powers that be allow it

nonperson 02-05-2021 02:28 PM

There are loads of shampoo bars for dandruff prone hair and most of them list all the ingredients so you'd be able to see if you're allergic, plus they're less chemically so actually less likely to cause reactions.

The one I use has broccoli in it. >.>

Hope you're allowed out soon, Beckie.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 03:03 PM


Yep got out for some fresh air!

nonperson 02-05-2021 03:09 PM

Yep, broccoli has oils that are good for hair or something.

Was it good? It looks fresh out there.

I should go outside too... =|

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 03:43 PM

Thanks for the information nonperson. I must have been looking in the wrong place.

nonperson 02-05-2021 03:49 PM

There's so much choice out there nowadays.

These are a couple of the ones I like, although I've not tried the specific scalp care ones:



not_so_insig 02-05-2021 04:28 PM

Thanks for the links nonperson I will check them out.

nonperson 02-05-2021 04:35 PM

You're welcome.

What's everyone up to this afternoon?

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 04:38 PM

I am currently listening to music and just bought a card for my cpn for Nurses Day.

tamobhuuta 02-05-2021 04:39 PM

I'm watching TV.

Cacoethes 02-05-2021 04:46 PM

I'm listening to music too

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 04:49 PM

This is the card I bought for my cpn


It's one I bought years ago. Nurses Day is on May 12th but I am seeing my cpn on the 11th. I have a load of other blank cards in my card box so if it doesn't arrive in time I will have a card to give her.

nonperson 02-05-2021 04:55 PM

That's pretty, Dawn. Hope it arrives in time.

TV and music are good activities.

I should go outside and bag up some garden rubbish =/ Currently watching Friends though.

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 05:00 PM

My cpn is a decent cpn. I like to give my cpn a card on suitable occasions if they're good. I had an bitch of an cpn so she got nothing from me. I am glad I no longer have her.

nonperson 02-05-2021 05:09 PM

People like to be shown or told when they are appreciated.

not_so_insig 02-05-2021 05:14 PM

Yes my ex cpn (different one to the bitch) used to tell me that I was the only one who remembered Nurses Day out of all her patients. I missed mh nurses day with my current cpn as she was self isolating at the time and I didn't have an regular cpn at the time.

tamobhuuta 03-05-2021 11:13 AM

Good morning, anyone about?

[Luna] 03-05-2021 12:03 PM
