It came about 7.15 pm. It came when my parents were here.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 07:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 10:07 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 10:09 AM

I'm ok thanks!
It seems to have cooled down a bit now thankfully!


one_step_closer 13-07-2022 10:38 AM

Morning everyone. What is everyone doing today?

I'm going to the walking group at 1pm. My support worker is back and taking the group. I'll have to tell her I haven't been to the gym group or some of the walking groups for ages (because she'll ask about how the groups were while she was away) and she'll say did I not go yesterday and I'll have to fess up to our walk yesterday.

It's cloudy and breezy here with some warmth. The weather apps don't say it's going to rain but the clouds are dark.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 11:00 AM

Hey lindsay!

I have work and then glow beatz. Need to put meds in dosset box at some point too. And I'll most definitely need to shower after glow beatz!

I hope you manage to enjoy it lindsay. And that your support worker isn't too annoyed!

It's the same here lindsay. Quite a nice change!
It's meant to be 37 next Tuesday. I'm going to melt!

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 03:02 PM

How was your walking group osc?

There's a nice cool breeze here.

one_step_closer 13-07-2022 03:31 PM

It was just me and my support worker at the walk. A lot of the time it's just me at the groups because one of the other people isn't well right now and the other person has plans a lot of the time. The walk was good.

I hope your day is going well, Beckie.

What have you been up to, Tamo?

not_so_insig 13-07-2022 04:11 PM

Afternoon all. I noticed that the sign saying that my road is closed next week says they're only working between 8 am to 5 pm. So hopefully if my Internet goes down it will only be between those hours so hopefully I will be able to come online during the evenings next week. I already rescheduled my tesco delivery to come between 5 and 6 pm next Tuesday.

one_step_closer 13-07-2022 04:53 PM

I hope it doesn't cause you too much bother, Dawn.

not_so_insig 13-07-2022 05:01 PM

Yes I hope so too.

tamobhuuta 13-07-2022 06:31 PM

A bit of reading, tv, praying. Just normal stuff.

Cacoethes 13-07-2022 06:53 PM

Hey guys!
Work was busy but was fine!
Didn't get to leave early which is probably a good thing because money!
Had to walk home instead of bus because it's glow beatz soon :-D

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 07:20 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 10:41 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 10:48 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Bit tired

How are you?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 10:59 AM

I'm ok. Feeling somewhat relieved because the incompetent CMHT psych has handed my sister's meds over to the competent psych in charge of her ketamine!

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 11:06 AM

That's good

Have you got much planned for today?

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 11:27 AM

Morning all. I am bloody boiling but I slept for longer than what I have been doing. Would have still been asleep if it weren't for the postman but it was an important parcel as it was a redelivery.

It's ryl bin day! They have collected my ordinary bin but not the recycling yet. The ordinary bin was the most important.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 11:30 AM

My ordinary bin is full to the brim!
The bin men don't usually come until a bit later here though

tamobhuuta 14-07-2022 11:36 AM

My dad's in charge of bins thank goodness.

I'll probably spend the day in the garden, reading etc

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 11:38 AM

My neighbour has put herself in charge of most of the bins in our little area. But she only puts out the bins of people she likes

Sounds good

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 01:35 PM

Good job she likes you Beckie!

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 01:42 PM

Yep! It would be a bit awkward if she didn't!

I've just had someone ride past me on a bike wearing a PUFFA JACKET!!!

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 01:43 PM

Who couldn't like Beckie? (Totally sucking up here!).

It's dull and breezy here. I think Central Scotland is the only place that isn't having a heatwave. The rest of Scotland has been at points.

My bins have been being collected later than usual for the past few weeks.

I'm taking Crookshanks to the vet later on to see if his weight is ok and what I should be feeding him. Not looking forward to getting taxis.

I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 01:49 PM

Haha! Aww thanks Lindsay! :-D

It's sunny and warm here but not as horrible as it has been.

My bins have been collected now. I think the bin man has some form of ocd because he has lined up all the bins in a perfect row instead of chucking them anywhere like normal!

I hope it goes ok Lindsay
I don't like getting taxis either

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 01:54 PM

A perfect row of bins sounds better than just chucking them everywhere. I'm always worried I'll pick up the wrong bin or someone else will pick up my bin which my neighbour has done before and I had to sneak into their garden when they were out to switch the bins and they had already put something in my bin.

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 02:05 PM

Dawn, I saw you mentioned The Railway Children in the classic films thread. Do you like that film? Have you seen there's a second one coming out in the cinema? I'll probably just wait till it comes out on dvd.

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 02:12 PM

I have rainbow coloured numbers on my bin so it would be hard for someone to take mine by mistake!

not_so_insig 14-07-2022 03:56 PM

Lindsay The Railway Children is my second ever favourite film. I have all 3 versions with Jenny Agutta on dvd. I am definitely going to buy the sequel on dvd when it comes out.

one_step_closer 14-07-2022 05:03 PM

Weirdly I enjoyed picking numbers for my bins. Mine are shaped as houses with the number in the middle. It depends what angle the bin people leave the bins as to whether they get mixed up or not, like if you can't see the number.

Will you see it at the cinema too, Dawn?

How has everyones day been?

nonperson 14-07-2022 05:09 PM

I put my house number on the bin lid so it easy to see. I only have one neighbour though and they don't have numbers on theirs so it's not usually a problem.

It's been a mere 25 degrees here today! :woot:

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 05:13 PM

23 here and a nice breeze!
Taekwando time!

nonperson 14-07-2022 05:14 PM

The breeze has been a god send.

Have fun!

Cacoethes 14-07-2022 06:12 PM

It has!

I did have fun!
We learned a technique that, if done properly, can break a person's leg. Very handy!

Cacoethes 15-07-2022 07:11 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2022 10:06 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 15-07-2022 10:07 AM

I'm ok thanks.


tamobhuuta 15-07-2022 10:10 AM

Yeah I'm ok. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here.

Cacoethes 15-07-2022 10:14 AM

Yep same here!
Still a tad too hot for me though!
So thankful for air con at work!
I may treat myself to a frozen daiquiri when i finish!

Do you have any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 15-07-2022 10:29 AM

What flavour daiquiri? I've taken to having vegan cocktails.

Cacoethes 15-07-2022 10:49 AM


That sounds nice!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2022 11:21 AM

Not vegan! Virgin! Although vegan as well so far.

one_step_closer 15-07-2022 12:24 PM

Hey everyone, I hope you're having a good day so far.

I'm waiting in for an Asda delivery then I need to go to the chemist because they put Chrlopromazine in my meds instead of antihistamines for the second day in a row.

tamobhuuta 15-07-2022 01:01 PM

Oh dear, very frustrating.

one_step_closer 15-07-2022 02:17 PM

They sorted it out and said it won't happen again. They're generally good with getting my meds right, I've just had a couple of issues in the past. It's lucky I recognise my meds. Some people just take what they're given.

How is your day going, Tamo?

Cacoethes 15-07-2022 03:33 PM

That's not good lindsay!
I guess everyone makes mistakes at times.

I have finished work early today!
And am currently enjoying a delicious frozen strawberry daiquiri before the bus!

not_so_insig 15-07-2022 04:43 PM

It's only 19 degrees here and I am freezing.

one_step_closer 15-07-2022 05:00 PM

That's really strange, Dawn. Is everywhere else warm apart from where you are? It's weird to be telling you to use blankets or whatever gives you some warmth!

I think Monday and Tuesday have a weather warning for heat, here anyway.

I don't like alcohol but that sounds nice and refreshing, Beckie.

one_step_closer 15-07-2022 05:09 PM

It's extra quiet here today. There's loads of times I've been the only member online. This is the only place where you can confidently say the word quiet and everything doesn't start to go mental.

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 03:31 PM.
