Same! It's so annoying and anxiety provoking!
Thanks. I hope not!

Yeah packing is effort. And you have little one to pack for too! Well, he's not so little anymore!
Hope you can get it over and done with quickly!

chinahorse 31-07-2020 01:20 PM

Ack,waiting for phone calls is horrible.

The trains arent too bad as they are air conditioned and no one can sit next to you. The waiting between them is awful. I'm in taunton now. Very sticky and another 20 mins till the train. Been here and on a loo hunt for 20 mins already. Found a loo but was shut for refurbiahmentand the only openfemales were other side of the station.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 01:23 PM

How annoying Lillie!
I'm glad the trains are air conditioned though. That must make the situation slightly better

chinahorse 31-07-2020 01:34 PM

Yeah. Though I do feel sick from being so hot.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 01:45 PM

Make sure to keep hydrated!
Feeling sick is awful
How long do you have left of your journey?

chinahorse 31-07-2020 01:49 PM

I've drank all my drinks now. :-( And the train shops are all shut. I arrive on my old city at 2.30 ish because this train is delayed. Then it's a bus to my old work as my friend lives just around the corner. Fingers crossed by 3 I will be at old work.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 01:59 PM

Oh no!
Hopefully you can get a drink soon
Not good to be without drinks in this heat
That's a long old journey

chinahorse 31-07-2020 02:07 PM

Should be 4 hours from door to door but is taking a lot longer due to covid.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 02:15 PM

Stupid covid
Ruins everything

chinahorse 31-07-2020 02:19 PM

It really does. And work are now being idiots too. On top of the stress of sad reasons I'm going to plymouth and mental health stress and urghhh

Annnnywya.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 02:26 PM

Sorry to hear that *hugs if ok*
Wish I could help in some way

chinahorse 31-07-2020 02:27 PM

Hugs back.

Keep chatting to me! Found something to watch on tv? Also pre 7am I'm fairly sure watch a lot of border force on channel 11.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:04 PM

I'm watching border force right now!
It's not on pre 7am. I think it's motorway patrol then!

Just been on the phone to my nanny for half an hour. Man can she talk!!

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:07 PM

E is having his knee surgery. He went in at 11.30, they said it would take an hour but he's still in theatre. Feeling really anxious :crazy:

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:09 PM

I hope he's ok Luna
What's the surgery for?

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:13 PM

He fell off his bike (again..) and damaged a ligament in his knee so they are repairing it.
My mind is catastrophising but trying to distract myself.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:16 PM

Ouch!
I could be wrong but maybe ligament damage can't be seen in perfect detail on scans and it's just a bit more damaged or complicated than they thought therefore taking longer?
That could be nonsense but that's what I'd think

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:22 PM

You're probably right, I'm just not good with health stuff (getting a lot of horrible intrusive thoughts). I'm watching Bob's burgers and randomly looking at Halloween decorations to take my mind off it.

What are you up to Beckie? How's your nanny?

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:28 PM

*hugs if ok*
Well done for trying to distract
I know you love Halloween so that's a good idea!

Just watching border force
My nanny is doing good thanks!
She went out for the first time in like 5 months yesterday. She's been shielding but kind of just went f*ck it and went to the supermarket.

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:29 PM

Aww bless her. I bet that was quite anxiety-provoking for her. Did it go okay?

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:34 PM

Yeah she said she was quite anxious and it was hard getting used to where you're supposed to go because they still have the one way system there but she enjoyed getting out and doing something normal

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:44 PM

It does take a bit of getting used to. it's all very surreal.

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:44 PM

E finally out of theatre!

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:45 PM

Also (triple posting) it's 36 flipping degrees right now!!!

one_step_closer 31-07-2020 03:49 PM

What days you've all being going through. I hope they work out for you.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 03:50 PM

It is
I know I was terrified of shopping when I came out of hospital because I went in before lockdown happened and everything was normal!

Yay! I'm glad he's out now

I know. It is completely unacceptable!

Hi lindsay! How are you?

[Luna] 31-07-2020 03:58 PM

Hey Lindsay!

I was super anxious going back to the shops too. It took me quite a while to build up my confidence again.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 04:02 PM

It seems ok once you get used to it!
Though social distancing has gone out of the window since the masks became compulsory. They've removed the one way stickers in asda too

nonperson 31-07-2020 05:02 PM

*collapses into thread*

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 05:11 PM

Hi np!
Were you working today?

nonperson 31-07-2020 05:13 PM

Hi! Yes but I started early so got to finish early. But still! I'm fried.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 05:19 PM

Omg I can't believe you survived!

nonperson 31-07-2020 05:28 PM

I've survived worse. =)

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 05:35 PM

I would absolutely die if I had to work in this weather!

chinahorse 31-07-2020 05:41 PM

Eek you poor thing NP!

Come to my old city. 19 degrees and cloudy. After a magical mystery tour I found my friends flat. And met her gorgeous kitty who is a baby still.

nonperson 31-07-2020 05:47 PM

19 degrees sounds heavenly!

Aww baby kitty!

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 05:53 PM

I so wish it was 19 here!
Glad you made it Lillie and enjoying some kitty time!

nonperson 31-07-2020 05:56 PM

It's actually got quite cloudy here. Wonder if it will thunder later.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 06:08 PM

My phone is warning me about thunderstorms so maybe!
Though it's still really sunny here :plain:

chinahorse 31-07-2020 06:09 PM

No sign of thunder here! Shame. Quite like a storm.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 06:10 PM

Me too!

nonperson 31-07-2020 06:15 PM

Same. I think there's going to be more thunder on the east coast, although I've also got thunderstorm warnings on my phone too.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 06:22 PM

Fingers crossed!

nonperson 31-07-2020 06:28 PM

Time to shower, I think.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 06:30 PM

Good plan!

I'm going to have a shower after dinner

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 07:16 PM

Hi everyone. I see people loving the sun as much as me...

I've had a hair cut. Our L did it for me at home.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 07:37 PM

That's good tamo

I've just had a shower and washed my hair in preparation for swimming tomorrow. Didn't want to go out with my seriously greasy horrible hair!

tamobhuuta 31-07-2020 07:43 PM

Well done Cacoethes, i hope you enjoy your swim.

Tomorrow I've got to start thinking about packing, we're going to France on Monday.

Cacoethes 31-07-2020 07:46 PM

Thanks :)

Ooo lovely!

nonperson 31-07-2020 07:49 PM

People might have just thought your hair was wet rather than greasy, Beckie. =P

Ooh France.

I am also showered and no longer covered in suncream and dirt. =P
