Tesco came rather late. The driver did apologise though. I sent one thing back however.

No Lindsay I won't be buying them elsewhere as it's nothing that can't wait until the next order and I have some whisky.

one_step_closer 30-01-2023 04:57 PM

Do you have a favourite character in Doctors, Tamo?

Do you regularly order from Tesco, Dawn?

not_so_insig 30-01-2023 05:03 PM

I have an tesco shopping order once a fortnight Lindsay.

one_step_closer 30-01-2023 05:04 PM

That's good planning. I usually get a delivery when I run low on cat litter and I get it in bulk along with other things I need. Tesco never usually has the cat litter I use so I get deliveries from Asda.

Cacoethes 30-01-2023 06:58 PM

Hey guys!
I made it through the day!
I had porridge for breakfast which is quite substantial so unsure why i am feeling odd.
Making dinner now!
Will try and book a gp appointment tomorrow

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 08:28 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 31-01-2023 11:11 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 11:13 AM

Buenos dias!

I'm tired. Have a GP appointment at 4:45 about all the weirdness so I'll just be dying of boredom until then!

How are you?

one_step_closer 31-01-2023 11:16 AM

Morning everyone.

How are you, Tamo? Any plans for today?

That's quite a late appointment, Beckie. I hate having so much time to fill before appointments etc. It can be hard to occupy yourself. What are you going to get up to?

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 11:26 AM

It can!
I think I might do some cleaning. Not really much to do but it's something!

How are you?

one_step_closer 31-01-2023 11:35 AM

Do it very slowly! :laugh:

I'm still a bit of a mix. Got the gym group today. Someone is writing us a harder circuit so I hope it's not too hard and we can still do our usual pausing and chatting and having a laugh.

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 11:44 AM

I'm not good at doing things slowly :p

Hope it goes ok!
I'm sure you'll still be able to chat!

tamobhuuta 31-01-2023 11:50 AM

Have fun cleaning Cacoethes...

I hope you have a good time working hard at the gym osc.

I need to do laundry and I might go over the road to get some bitesize chocolates.

Zurg 31-01-2023 12:03 PM

I approve of chocolates, Tamo!!! :)

I hate having late appointments on days where you have nothing to do. It's like a legit test of patience and i always fail by going all frustrated and grumpy after the first few hours…. I hope you can handle it better than me Beckie.

I hope gym group Will be nice, Lindsay. If it should be too rough on you, i'll advise you all to gather forces in a riot. Demand the slow and steady pace back into excercise!!! Society already moves Way too fast for our general health.

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 12:06 PM

Ooooh chocolate!
What are you thinking of getting?

Yep, very annoying!
I am already frustrated. And I've been irritable for like a week now so already grumpy XD
At least the piggies cheer me up!

Zurg 31-01-2023 01:36 PM

Yes!!!! Pets are always very handy and quite neccessary too in the event of a bad mood <3

If i feel particulary rubbish i grab a few treats for Findus and while he inhales them ;) i sniff his very soft and bunny-ish fur. That is a wonderful Way to instantly feel better :D

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 01:43 PM

Yes definitely!
Merry isn't a fan of cuddles and won't eat from my hand. But Pippin will happily scoff down some herbs during cuddles!

tamobhuuta 31-01-2023 03:10 PM

I'm not sure what I'll get, I'll see what they have.

Hurray for snuggles!

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 05:55 PM

Decided I'm having a pirates of the caribbean marathon

Zurg 31-01-2023 06:18 PM

Woah, that is ambitious Beckie!!! Bye, bye sleep ;)

I had dinner after spending an hour making it. I am very, very slow when it comes to cooking. Though one of my really good friends says i shouldn't say that about myself but rather say i have kitchen zen :P
I made veggie meatballs in tomato sauce. Yum!!!

Huge mess ensued. I needed a substantial break after eating before i felt ready to tackle the dishes. Some days i wish i had a dishwasher. But then i'd be pissed about having to empty it…. #firstworldproblems

Coffee and relaxing time now!!!

Cacoethes 31-01-2023 06:40 PM

Sleep is **** anyway XD

Sounds delicious!
I tend to have to wash everything as soon as I've used it otherwise it stresses me out!

I don't think I could afford the extra cost of a dishwasher. You'd have to pay for the electric AND dishwasher tablets!

Yay for coffee and relaxing!

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 08:17 AM

Morning everyone!

long road 01-02-2023 11:04 AM


How is everyone?

I am doing ok, just had a shower. But I am a bit nervous about the neurophysios who are visiting my house just after lunch. I haven't met them before and I am really hoping they can help, while at same time worrying if I am 'bad enough'

tamobhuuta 01-02-2023 11:13 AM

I hope the neurophysio is helpful. Good luck!

How are you Cacoethes?

My sister was arrested last night for biting a police officer. She's home now on bale.

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 11:49 AM

I'm ok
At work. So far got stuck in a fridge and there is kitchen drama

Zurg 01-02-2023 12:01 PM

Oh dear, i leave you alone for a while and people get arrested and stuck in a frigde….!! ;)

I hope for the best possible outcome from your appointment today, Jen!!! You can do this!!!!

I hope today Will be a bit less dramatic, Tamo!!

And if anyone snoops around, Beckie, just tell them you were chilling in the frigde in accordance with the recipe!!!

I feel a mix of silly goofiness and slight evil awaken within me today. Brace yourselves!!

tamobhuuta 01-02-2023 12:18 PM

We'll be prepped Zurg!

long road 01-02-2023 12:21 PM

Hope your sister will be ok Tamo, must be stressful.

Hopefully you are out of the fridge now Beckie!
I thought walk in fridges were meant to have emergency door handles so noone got stuck?

I got stuck in a office/ storage room once when I was in school, I went in to grab the hockey goalie kit, the door swung closed and I turned around to discover the handle had fallen off the inside! I got out eventually but they couldn't open the door I had come in by. They had to tell me where to find the key to the not quite finished emergency exit ( it didn't have any steps leading up to it yet) and then a caretaker had to help me over the roof init the art block!

Trying to keep calm and not let anxiety overcome me. They should be here in just under an hour and a half.

I am both excited and mildly afraid of a slightly evil and goofy Zurg.

one_step_closer 01-02-2023 01:56 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you're getting on ok with the neurophisio appointment, Jen.

I hope your sister is ok, Tamo. How are you? What are you getting up to?

I hope there's no more work drama, Beckie.

I'm always prepared for you, Kat! :laugh: I love your chat.

long road 01-02-2023 02:46 PM

It went ok ended up being both neurophysio and OT. Lots of question as it was an assessment type of thing. Good news is they said they would come see me again but separately next time. I am now exhausted and going to grab a nap. Thanks everyone for all the good wishes.

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 02:48 PM

It has an emergency handle. But it took a while to actually open. It's more of a massive button.
On break now.
Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong. There is no gas so we have NO pepsi or lemonade or soda water on tap. Only small bottles of pepsi and diet pepsi and 7up free. There is also no moretti, which is the most popular beer! The card machine decided to have a moment and started declining people's cards for no reason. Kitchen dramas continue and one of the chefs shouted at another to get out, so he has gone home. Added to this, we are oddly busy for a Wednesday. Of course.
I just absolutely cannot deal and am running around screaming quietly with palpitations and stomach pain XD

We can't have a Beckie crisis!!! This Will not do!!! So, please look at this pic of a very curious and cute Findus until you feel better!!!!

tamobhuuta 01-02-2023 04:28 PM

Aw cute

one_step_closer 01-02-2023 04:49 PM

I'm glad your appointment went ok and there will be further visits, Jen.

When do you finish, Beckie? I'm willing the rest of your shift to be more calm.

I had a look at Findus too, Kat. I hope you don't mind! What a cutie.

How are your days going Kat, and Tamo?

not_so_insig 01-02-2023 05:26 PM

Hello all. I have had a busy week this week so far. Had something going on every day so far.

It's ryl bin day!

one_step_closer 01-02-2023 05:27 PM

Are you busy for the rest of the week, Dawn?

Yes it is RYL bin out day! I put mine out earlier on.

long road 01-02-2023 05:40 PM

That sounds absolutely manic Beckie. Hopefully your shift is over soon. Sounds like you deserve a relaxing night tonight, and some guinea pig cuddles!

Findus is adorable Zurg. How long have you had them?

Hope the busyness has gone well Dawn.

My nap seems to have helped. It was sorely needed.

not_so_insig 01-02-2023 05:48 PM

Yes I am busy for tomorrow and Friday Lindsay. I have put my bin out too.

Zurg 01-02-2023 05:52 PM

I've had Findus since mid august last year, Jen. I wasn't initially planning on getting a bunny but i started researching the option when my application for a psychiatric service dog was declined by the Council. I really needed a pet that could help me in grounding and bunnies can be kept free roaming so they are almost like a cat or dog in a Way. Best decision i ever made <3
I almost cried when we drove home from the animal shelter and he was in the transport bag i had bought for him. But it was happy tears :D

I went for a short walk a couple of hours ago. Very windy, very rainy. But also quite refreshing.

How is everyone tonight???

tamobhuuta 01-02-2023 06:00 PM

I'm having an anxious day, for no reason.

long road 01-02-2023 06:20 PM

Sounds like Findus has been a wonderful addition too your life Zurg! Although I am sure your electronics tremble at his presence! :P Bunnies have wonderful soft fur that must be great for grounding.

Sorry to hear you are having an anxious day Tamo, the ones that seemingly come out of nowhere are the worst.

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 07:09 PM

Awww findus is adorable!

I am now home.
**** me its been a day!
One of the managers said it was up there with one of the worst ever shifts.
Everything hurts. But home, fed the boys, put washing away and I'm making a fish finger sandwich!

long road 01-02-2023 07:19 PM

Fish finger sandwich for the win!!!

At least the manager agreed it was a terrible shift, I find other people confirming something was terrible weirdly helps.

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 07:46 PM

Literally EVERYONE was stressed. It certainly wasn't just me!
Everything hurts. Lol

long road 01-02-2023 07:58 PM

I would recommend a bath for your achyness Beckie but I don't want to sound like the crisis team XD

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 08:36 PM

I have a coffee and prosecco!
I'm still iffy about baths because even though I've not had a seizure in 303 days and I don't think I'm going to have one, it's still risky to have a bath while alone in the house! Well, I'm not alone but the guinea pigs probably won't be a great deal of help in an emergency situation XD

Zurg 01-02-2023 08:45 PM

Maybe a shower could help a bit too?? I find my muscles a lot less painful after a hot shower :D

I am confident that Merry and Pippin would rise to the occasion of being true heroes of the day. Yes i am!!!! And of course Fame and fortune would await you all aaaaand who knows??? Maybe two tiny, fancy hats for the heroic rodents??? :D

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 09:01 PM

Nah. Too much faff and I'm way too tired!

Me drowning would interfere with their mealtimes so anything is possible!
They do have hats! Merry does not like them so I did not make him wear one but Pippin did tolerate a little frog hat for a photo. He's way more chilled.

long road 01-02-2023 09:40 PM

Totally fair, baths and seizures are the worst of combos.

Pippon in a frog hat you say, JPEGs?

Cacoethes 01-02-2023 09:51 PM

Indeed they are!

I posted it on fb. I have you on there right?
Idk how to post jpgs on here!
