Same. Been a while now, for both of us!
Haven't slept past 7am since I got out of hospital.

It is!

I hope your breathing eases up a bit. Must be horrible, i can't even imagine!
Sounds like a nice chilled day.

I'm not doing a lot. Changed bedsheets, doing washing and will spot clean the boys and replace their hay. Potentially clean the house if I don't feel too bad after sorting the boys! It's not in too bad of a state tbh.
Also need to shower. And hopefully someone will buy the stuff i just put on vinted and i can get that posted off!

long road 04-06-2023 10:13 AM

Ouch, to not sleeping past 7am for that long. At least if I don't fall asleep until 5am I can generally sleep until 11am or 12pm if I am lucky. Although at the moment I have to get up and have steroids by 8:30am regardless.

It's definitely not fun. However I think I am doing a little better than this time last week, still have symptoms but they aren't quite as bad

Just a few chores then. I would say shower is more important than cleaning rest if house but I suppose if you did clean the house showering at the end would be the best plan You have reminded me I should probably shower today. Planning to watch anything?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 10:22 AM

Yeah it's annoying! Especially when i have nothing to do!
Although 5:40ish is better than the 2 days before that which were 4:30am!

Better is something, at least!
Fingers crossed it continues to get better!

Yeah, nothing too taxing!
Yeah shower is more important, I have work tomorrow so need look presentable!
I will be sweaty after cleaning out boys and potentially cleaning the house!

I've just been binge watching game of thrones again. Lol

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 11:07 AM

Good morning. Sorry you guys aren't sleeping. I woke up a few times but went straight back to sleep.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 11:14 AM

Lucky! Wish i could do that. I did try, but nope!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 11:26 AM

I'm ok. I've got my prayer group this afternoon. I've already been to Mass so I might get a Costa on the way home, but it depends who's giving me a lift.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 11:27 AM

Hope you enjoy prayer group! And that you get your costa!

long road 04-06-2023 12:56 PM

I just lay down listening to music for a couple of hours and think I managed to nap for about an hour of that. I definitely had a very weird dream, but not sure show long I was out.

I weirdly have neve watched game of thrones. I never tried because I read the first 3 books and the gave up during book 4. Have a seen a few clips recently and it does look better than how I felt about the series when I gave up on reading it.

Ooh Costa. Hope you can get one on the way home Tamo you deserve a little treat. And I hope prayer group goes well

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 01:01 PM

Hi everyone. Wish I could get some magical sleep glitter and sprinkle it over you. Or maybe not glitter, too messy.

I hope everyones day is at least bearable but that you get to do at least one nice thing for yourself too.

I hope you got/get your Costa, Tamo and you enjoy prayer group.

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 01:13 PM

Oops. I must have used the scare everyone away glitter instead.

long road 04-06-2023 01:36 PM

I just went to have a shower. Am back now!

Shower is nice thing number 1. Hoping I might get outside in a bit which could be nice thing number 2.

What nice thing are you going to try Lindsay?

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 01:36 PM

Hi osc, what are you up to today?

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 02:07 PM

Are you feeling ok after your shower, Jen? I hope you do get outside. Still nice weather with you? I don't have any idea what nice thing I could do for myself.

I've changed my bedding and done a washing. Now just trying my best to get through the day.

How's your day going so far, Tamo?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 02:17 PM

It's a good series. Quite graphic though!

Hi Lindsay!

Idk if I've done anything nice for myself today!
Changed bedsheets, did and put away my washing, cleaned out boys, got them some grass because they always shout for grass after I've cleaned them out! They can be surprisingly loud! Boys washing is in now. Cleaned the kitchen and living room, but will leave upstairs for another day i think. Or later.

Well done for your washing and bedding change Lindsay!

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 02:20 PM

You've been doing nice things for your house and for your piggies, I think there is definitely a need to do something nice for yourself, Beckie.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 02:22 PM

Idk why the piggos always find being cleaned out so exhausting, not like they've done anything XD
But they are both napping now.

I'm not really sure what i can do!

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 02:29 PM

Can they see you doing the cleaning? Maybe they are exhausted from watching you do all the things!

I know what you mean. I'm not sure what I could do either.

What are you getting up to now?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 02:37 PM

They can! Because I have to sweep up all the hay that gets everywhere during a clean! Which takes longer than the actual clean XD

Just watching game of thrones.
Considering shaving my legs now while I've got shorts on. I usually do it in the shower, but i don't have my glasses on in the shower so i always miss bits!

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 02:44 PM

You could shave your legs in a funky pattern!

nonperson 04-06-2023 02:54 PM

People do it with their head hair so why not leg hair!

Afternoon all.

nonperson 04-06-2023 02:55 PM

Or grow it extra long and get dreads. Anything goes nowadays.

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 03:02 PM

Hey, NP. How is your day going?

nonperson 04-06-2023 03:07 PM

Hey. Got work done this morning so that's good but now the rest of the day is not going so well.

How's your day? What's Crookshanks up to?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 03:08 PM

It wasn't long enough for patterns!
It was barely visible really, but i may wear a skirt tomorrow, so thought I'd save myself being paranoid about it XD

Helloo np!
What's up?

nonperson 04-06-2023 03:19 PM

Leg hair is always more visible to yourself than to other people.

Not much is up. Just too much to do and not enough capacity to do it.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 03:26 PM

Very true! And hopefully no one would be looking at my legs that closely!

Know that feel.
Do these things need to be done today?

nonperson 04-06-2023 03:42 PM

Laundry needs to be done so that I have uniform for next week. Gardening needs to be done for inspection on Monday. Washing up needs to be done because ewww. And gotta go back to week later. I don't think any of it will be done, except work.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 03:49 PM

Oof that is quite a lot!
Good luck!

I have a date on Wednesday 0_o
Just a coffee. She's putting her son in after school club so i don't have to rush after my meeting.

nonperson 04-06-2023 03:53 PM

It is...

Like proper date date or just meeting to say hello in person?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 03:59 PM

Bit of both
She called it a date

nonperson 04-06-2023 04:08 PM

Well don't put too much pressure on that word. Just go to say hello and be sociable and see how you get on =)

long road 04-06-2023 04:19 PM

Showering didnt make me extra short of breath today which is progress.

And I made it outside (for about an hour back inside now). Lovely weather here, sunny but there is still a slight breeze that stops you overheating. And I have my gazebo up for shade.

Could a nice thing for Lindsay be listening to some music? Or going on a walk to fetch a tasty snack?

I rarely bother to shave my legs, my leg hair grows in odd patches anyway, pretty much everywhere on my lower legs but have random bald bits on my upper legs . It is dark hair so where it grows is noticeable.

I hope the sort of date goes well on Wednesday Beckie! Like NP says just try and enjoy your self and follow the vibes.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 04:24 PM

Thanks np, i shall!

That's good jen!
And I'm glad you made it outside!

I don't get any hair at all above my knees and never have. My lower leg hair grows really slowly too! Underarm hair comes up waaay faster!
I keep on top of it because i sometimes wear ¾ length leggings

Thank you!
Following the vibes is how i get through my entire life XD

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 05:43 PM

I hope you get at least some of your tasks done, NP.

Crookshanks is sitting beside me at the moment. His dinner time is 5.30pm so he might start annoying me any time from now!

I really hope you have an amazing time on your date, Beckie. :-)

I'm glad showering wasn't too difficult Jen and you managed to get outside. That's so great. Did you do anything while you were outside?

I did manage to get out and buy myself a doughnut type thing. So hot outside though.

Managed to read a bit while waiting for it to be (too early) dinner time. I'm hoping it wasn't just because it was an in between thing and I can read again just because without using it just to bridge a gap.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 05:48 PM

It's so weird how some animals can just know the time!
The piggos start shouting from about now!

Thanks! We seem to vibe pretty well so fingers crossed!

Well done for getting out! What makes it a doughnut type thing instead of a doughnut??

Hopefully you'll be able to start enjoying reading again soon

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 05:50 PM

It says it's a brioche dream ring so not normal doughnut dough and it has that fake cream stuff in it.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 05:56 PM

Sounds delicious!

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 06:46 PM

It was. Have you figured out what nice thing to do for yourself yet?

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 06:55 PM

I guess shaving my legs was kind of a nice thing to do for myself?

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 07:53 PM

You can have that one :-) How are you feeling about work tomorrow?

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 08:14 PM

Hi guys. I went to my group but got very anxious and needed PRN. I went to get coffee to help me relax but that was stressful too!

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 08:26 PM

I am equal parts excited and nervous!
It's a good team on though, and E is meeting me after my shift so i don't have to sit on my own until the menu tasting thing!

Are you feeling any better now tamo?

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 08:56 PM

Sorry you've had a stressful day, Tamo. How are you now?

That sounds normal for someone as abnormal as yourself, Beckie. :laugh: I hope you get back into the swing of things quickly and enjoy being there with your colleagues.

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 09:09 PM

Not 100% but better.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 09:10 PM

Haha! Indeed :tongue2:
I remember last time i was standing by the coffee machine and I couldn't for the life of me remember where the plates for the coffee cups were! (They are underneath the coffee machine in the cupboard, where they've been since i started nearly 2 years ago XD)
But I'll get there!

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 09:10 PM

I hope you will be 100% by tomorrow and have a lovely week.

*edit* This was for Tamo but could also apply to Beckie.

one_step_closer 04-06-2023 09:12 PM

You've been there nearly 2 years!

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 09:32 PM

Yep! Will be 2 years in August! 0_o

tamobhuuta 04-06-2023 09:57 PM

Congrats on almost 2 vears Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 04-06-2023 10:00 PM

Thank you!
Longest I've ever kept a job!
