Morning guys
I saw a mouse last night

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 11:29 AM

Morning everyone. I'm hungry already.

I hope you all have a good day.

The mouse must have been telling you to get to bed Beckie.

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 11:40 AM

It's nearly lunchtime!

I'm just not getting tired though

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 11:41 AM

I have sausages in the oven for a sausage sandwich. :-)

How are you today?

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 11:43 AM


I'm ok
Just watching old epsiodes of The Bill!

not_so_insig 02-10-2019 11:54 AM

I am waiting for my cpn. The road through the village is closed due to roadworks for the next 2 weeks so I am expecting her to be late as I am not sure how well she knows the area. I have 2 buses to catch so I am hoping that she's not too late.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 12:07 PM

Definitely telling you to go to bed beckie.

Mmmmmmmm sausage sandwhich.

Hope she's not too late Dawn

not_so_insig 02-10-2019 12:18 PM

Thanks Lillie. I have the bins to do before I go out though.

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 12:28 PM

Hope she's not too late Dawn
Always annoying when that happens

What are you up to Lillie?

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 12:40 PM

I don't think I've ever watched The Bill.

I hope your CPN isn't too late Dawn and you get all the things done that you need to.

How are you Lillie?

chinahorse 02-10-2019 12:47 PM

Ive cleaned the whole house and had a bath and washed and dried my hair. Also got laundry on.

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 12:49 PM

Wow! Very productive!
Well done!

chinahorse 02-10-2019 12:51 PM

It really needed doing. It was filthy.

not_so_insig 02-10-2019 01:48 PM

My cpn came. She was too late for me to be on time to catch one of my buses so I am having to wait another hour. Annoyed.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 01:50 PM

Where are you getting the bus to?

not_so_insig 02-10-2019 01:51 PM

Town first then my parents house.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 01:52 PM

Ah at least you don't have to be anywhere at a specific time. Annoying though.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 01:59 PM

Really want to get another cat.

nonperson 02-10-2019 02:15 PM

Half an hour until phone call... This waiting is awful. =(

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 02:22 PM

More cats are always a good idea Lillie!

Aww np
Hope it goes ok

chinahorse 02-10-2019 02:22 PM

It really is. Anything yoh can do to pass the time?

chinahorse 02-10-2019 02:23 PM

Should probably wait until I have an income and a house in plymouth.

nonperson 02-10-2019 02:25 PM

I'm watching some sort of game show, need to get up for a wee too. I've eaten too much crappy comfort food for lunch... gah. It feels like this unknown phone person is coming into my house or something...

I want another cat too. =(

chinahorse 02-10-2019 02:31 PM

I need the loo also. But feel too anxious to move.

There really is nothing on the tele at this time of the day.

nonperson 02-10-2019 02:36 PM

Yeah, I don't normally have normal tv on.

nonperson 02-10-2019 02:41 PM

4 minutes... My heart is in my throat.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 02:57 PM

Normal tv?

Hope it's going ok.

nonperson 02-10-2019 03:07 PM

Yeah like freeview/freesat. I normally put the NowTV channels on.

It went alright, the guy was really nice. Being referred on to someone else so got to wait for another phonecall. No specific time for this one though.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 03:08 PM

Ah I see. I miss having amazon prime.

Glad it went ok. How do you feel now?

tamobhuuta 02-10-2019 03:13 PM

Hi everyone. My blood test was fine. I need to get a shower and organise my meds.

nonperson 02-10-2019 03:15 PM

Hey Tamo. Good to hear it went well. =)

I feel ok now. Paced around nervously for a bit afterwards though. And I've googled what he thinks it might be... and, although nothing serious, can be a pain to fix.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 03:17 PM

Glad it went ok tamo. Good goals to have.

At least it's not serious np.

nonperson 02-10-2019 03:27 PM

Yeah. I just don't want scans and physio and occupational health getting involved... or shoulder injections o.O It sounds like it's going to take a long time to fix... and I might not gain total movement back.

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 03:36 PM

I hope everything goes ok with your treatment NP. Well done for managing the phone call. Will you be able to wind down now?

Well done with all your tasks Lillie. If you get another cat at any point you must stop at 2!

That's annoying Dawn, I hope your appointment went well at least.

I'm glad your blood test was fine Tamo.

nonperson 02-10-2019 03:58 PM

Thanks, Lindsay. I hope I can wind down, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself now to be honest. Just sitting here unnecessarily worrying about what-ifs and maybes. Need to go see the pumpkins so that will calm me down a bit, I think.

How's your day going?

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 04:04 PM

If you can get started on something I think that would help, I know it's easy to sit around and worry and that it can be hard to decide what to do etc but getting started with something, anything (safe) might get you into the rhythm of things and out of your head. Going to see the pumpkins sounds like a good plan.

My day is feeling a bit weird but not really terrible at the moment so that's good. I've been to pick up some post and hoovered.

nonperson 02-10-2019 04:15 PM

That is good. Anything exciting in the post?

I can't do much until after 4:30-4:45 when everyone's left work. Don't want to go out there while people are still about. I have got an Amazon parcel I could open.

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 04:18 PM

You have an Amazon parcel and you haven't opened it?!!!

I got a couple more Zox bands, from eBay this time. One that has a semi colon on it and says 'continue' and one that says 'this too shall pass'.

not_so_insig 02-10-2019 04:34 PM

I am at my parents house now. The appointment went ok she admitted that she got a bit lost due to the roadworks.

nonperson 02-10-2019 04:55 PM

Haha, yes! It's only new comfy insoles for my work boots so nothing exciting at all!

I like the sound of those bands. "This too shall pass" is worth having a reminder of.

Good to hear your appointment went well, Dawn.

nonperson 02-10-2019 05:10 PM

Right... time to get out of the house.

*slaps on some Freddie Mercury style stage confidence and attitude*

Don't.. stop.. me.. nowwww... >.>

tamobhuuta 02-10-2019 05:31 PM

I had a shower!

one_step_closer 02-10-2019 06:13 PM

Go NP and Tamo!

nonperson 02-10-2019 07:02 PM

Well done, Tamo. Being clean is such a nice feeling.

It's supposed to go down to 3 degrees tonight so I had to do two trips out to take extra blankets to wrap the pumpkins in.

I'm such a nerd. =B

chinahorse 02-10-2019 07:32 PM

Well done tamo.

Awww toasty pumpkins! !

I went out the house!! Got some bits with the money dad gave me and collected my prescription. And spicy pumpkin soup from Covent Garden is back!!! Yay.

nonperson 02-10-2019 07:46 PM


I mean, firstly super amazing work on getting out of the house and achieving all that.

Secondly, ooooooh, spicy pumpkin soup! I'm gonna have to keep an eye out for that.

chinahorse 02-10-2019 08:17 PM

It's only a quid in morrisons atm

Cacoethes 02-10-2019 08:27 PM

I don't like spicy things but pumpkin soup is yummy!

chinahorse 02-10-2019 08:43 PM

It's not normally spicy spicy more like flavourfull

nonperson 02-10-2019 08:46 PM

Was gonna say it's probably not vindaloo spicy. Pumpkin does need a little bit of spice with it.
