You've done lots already, Beth. Do you need a lot from Aldi?

I mean, I've dyed my hair and put a wash on and put some food in the oven, thats all!

Its still liquid though so not great.

I need a full food shop :(

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:34 PM

Still lots. How long does it take to dye and sort out your hair?

I hope once you're back from Aldi your ice lollies will be ready. Good luck with the shop.

tamobhuuta 21-05-2023 02:37 PM

She's OK, not particularly grouchy or anything. Though she is vaping.

Ahimsa 21-05-2023 02:39 PM

Ahh well I have a LOT of hair - when my hairdresser does my roots, it takes 4 bowls of bleach and she usually gets 1, if not other 2 peoples hair done during my developing time!

It takes about 20 minutes -half hour to put the dye on, longer if I'm doing more than one colour - and then an hour to develop, and then washing it off and drying it takes at least half an hour. I started at 10:55 and I'm just done with it.

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:42 PM

Is she planning on giving up vaping too or just seeing how it goes?

That's a long time, Beth! I don't know how you can be bothered.

Ahimsa 21-05-2023 02:44 PM

It's my "thing" - everyone knows me for my hair!

An unfortunate situation has occurred, my washing machine is done but one of the cats is asleep on me.

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:46 PM

Your hair does look amazing from what I've seen of it, so I guess it's worth it.

Oh no, that is a tricky situation. How long have they been asleep on you? Are they right inside a nice peaceful sleep?

tamobhuuta 21-05-2023 02:49 PM

All I do with my hair is wash and brush it. Actually, I condition it too.

I think she's going to think about stopping vaping later. It's cheaper than ciggies but still expensive.

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:50 PM

I don't even condition my hair. I think I might have a 2 in 1 shampoo.

I hope your sister succeeds on her journey and it's not too hard.

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 02:56 PM

Hey guys. Just spot cleaned the piggos and replaced the hay.

I now feel rather unwell!
Will be attempting to get a gp appointment again tomorrow!

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:57 PM

Are you able to rest now? I'm sorry you're feeling unwell. Well done for sorting out the fluffies space.

It's not too big, no. It's hot out there though so was tiring. Back now but alas straight back to work. That's good that the council does it.

Oh well done to your sister and making her a badge is such a lovely idea :)

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 02:59 PM

Well done, Jenna. Can't you have a tiny break at least? What's next to be done?

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 03:04 PM

Yeah i can rest now.
Had to sweep up afterwards because hay goes everywhere during cleaning!
I feel ok when i rest. It's when i do anything even slightly physical that it hits. Even walking! Highly inconvenient for someone who has to walk everywhere XD

Well done jenna!

Well done to your sister tamo! Quitting smoking is SO tough!

Ahimsa 21-05-2023 04:24 PM

That's VERY inconvenient Beckie! Have you tried writing a letter expressing your dissatisfaction? (idk who to though?)

Aldi is done, and so is the batch cooking.

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 04:29 PM

It is!
I think i should probably complain to my stupid body

Well done!

tamobhuuta 21-05-2023 04:59 PM

Everyone, take care of yourselves!

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 05:08 PM

Thanks tamo!

How's your day going?

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 05:09 PM

I hope you can get to the bottom of what's going on, Beckie.

Well done with your further achievements, Beth.

And you take care of yourself too, Tamo.

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 05:13 PM

Hopefully! If i can actually get an appointment tomorrow

Are you up to much lindsay?

Ahimsa 21-05-2023 05:45 PM

I need a nap, I'm super snoozy

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 05:50 PM

Do you have to phone early to increase your chances of getting an appointment? I'll keep my brain fingers crossed for you. Do you have anything left to do today?

Would a nap be ok, Beth?

I'm not up to much at all. Just here and then will try and do some reading. Going to watch Casualty later.

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 05:55 PM

Have a nap beth!

You have to call bang on 8am. Like literally watch your phone at 7:59 and call the second it changes.
But i did that on friday, didn't even get through to the queue until I'd called 4 times in a row (literally soon as it hung up, call again) otherwise there is absolutely no chance. Didn't manage it on Friday. All depends on where you are in the phone queue.
My surgery is usually very good, so i was surprised.
But my town is growing a lot, but with no extra schools, GPs, dentists etc. So it's all a bit crap.

Sounds like a chilled sunday

tamobhuuta 21-05-2023 07:09 PM

Our town's like that Cacoethes.

I went to Mass and wasn't too anxious.

My friend R is coming to see me next Saturday :)

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 07:44 PM

They just keep building!
All about the money...

Glad mass was ok

Aww lovely!

one_step_closer 21-05-2023 09:05 PM

That's something to look forward to, Tamo. :-) I'm glad mass was ok.

How's your evening going, Beckie?

Cacoethes 21-05-2023 09:30 PM

Still stressed out.
I took my meds early so fingers crossed for an early night!

I've done everything i needed to do though.

How about you?

Ahimsa 22-05-2023 04:23 AM

exciting news *sarcasm*

I'm still awake, I start work in 4 hours. I can't have coffee because it affects my anxiety really badly.

Pi.R^2 22-05-2023 07:33 AM

Oh no! I hope you got at least some sleep in the end =S

Ahimsa 22-05-2023 08:15 AM

I got a few broken hours :(

long road 22-05-2023 09:05 AM


I had a dream where I had guinea pigs Beckie!
Thought you ought to know..they did keep escaping their house in the dream and getting up to mischief though.

Travelling home today. Friend's Wedding yesterday went well. We left fairly early around 9pm but got to be there for all the important bits.

long road 22-05-2023 09:10 AM

Also sorry to hear you didn't sleep Beth..that sucks.

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 09:10 AM

Sorry you had such an awful sleep beth.
I hope you manage work ok

Some guinea pigs can be quite mischievous!

I'm glad it went well!

I managed to get a gp appointment!
When it kept hanging up on me i thought great, this happened on friday too.
But i was straight into 9th in the queue! Which is nothing short of a miracle. And the queue went so fast! So i have an appointment for 9am.

long road 22-05-2023 09:16 AM

These guinea pigs were super miachevious. Also as it was a dream at some point I got inside their house which was about 1 and a half Jens in size and got stuck.

Huzzah! Hope the appointment is helpful and you get a plan on place to stop you feeling so unwell.

Ahimsa 22-05-2023 10:48 AM

Beckie, I have just registered two guinea pigs called Branston and Pickle!!

long road 22-05-2023 10:55 AM

Amazing guinea pig names!

tamobhuuta 22-05-2023 11:09 AM

Morning guys. I dreamt people kept taking my sandwiches.

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 11:16 AM

Haha! I could probably fit in the boy's cage tbf. Though i don't think they'd be very impressed XD

Omg those are epic names!!!
What's the weirdest pet name you've come across?

Oh no! That would be more of a nightmare in my book!

I've been referred for urgent bloods.
Now trying to find out if i can just walk in, because there aren't any appointments for tomorrow when i have some time to waste in B anyway.
My GP said she thinks i could, but they are sometimes a bit out of touch with what actually happens!
There is no number to speak to an actual person there, only a booking line (even when you go through the main hospital switchboard) :eyeroll:

tamobhuuta 22-05-2023 11:34 AM

Oh dear Cacoethes, I hope your blood tests are enlightening. We have to do bloods as a walk in and queue for ages.

long road 22-05-2023 11:39 AM

Best not hop in the boys cage then!

Good luck with blood tests Beckie

We are just leaving for the trip home.

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 11:42 AM

We have an online booking system which is brilliant.
Never waited more than a few mins after my appointment time!
They've actually seen me straight away when I've been early!

Thanks jen

Have a safe journey home!

tamobhuuta 22-05-2023 11:54 AM

Jealous Cacoethes!

Have a safe journey LR. How long is it?

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 12:04 PM

I think some of the covid systems actually worked out for the best with some things!

Have you got any plans today tamo?

Ahimsa 22-05-2023 12:32 PM

Online booking would be amazing! I booked an appointment in March, the soonest they could do was May, but I couldn’t go cos of work so rearranged it for July!

Weirdest names, wow! Errm, Repecka (as in Rebecca) the chicken?
Quacky Chan the duck? The cat siblings This One and That One?
Another set of cats Brioche and Bagel?

We have LOTS!

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 12:43 PM

For a blood test??

Omg i am changing my name to Repecka XD
Those are genuis names. I love it!

My friend wanted me to call the guinea pigs Rapid and Tranq
Or Olly and Temmy (olanzapine and temazepam)

long road 22-05-2023 12:47 PM

135 miles to go. Just stopped at the services. Should be another 2 hours or so depending on traffic.

long road 22-05-2023 12:49 PM

Quacky Chan the duck is obviously my favourite!

not_so_insig 22-05-2023 12:57 PM

Morning all. I used to have a cat called Pickle. I miss him tons. He was a tailess tabby.

I have tesco coming today. Only 1 substitute and no unavailable items which is good. The substitute is acceptable.

Cacoethes 22-05-2023 01:02 PM

Fingers crossed for no traffic!

I love punny names!

Ahimsa 22-05-2023 01:22 PM
