I am allergic to alcohol wipes and alcohol sanitizing gels. Normally when they do depots they swab the area with an alcohol wipe I dont have it. Last time I had a wipe in the area i came out with a circular rash and it itched like hell.

I am also allergic to washing powder.

nonperson 19-06-2019 08:22 PM

Hives are awful. Itchy and hot and ugly.

Is that normal for it to happen during pregnancy?

nonperson 19-06-2019 08:22 PM

All washing powder, Dawn? Or just certain types?

not_so_insig 19-06-2019 08:26 PM

All washing powder. I have to wash my clothes in liquitabs as I am ok with that.

Cacoethes 19-06-2019 08:26 PM

They are awful

Pregnancy can cause all sorts of weird stuff so was probably normal!

At least you can use the liqitabs!
Would be a pain if you couldn't

not_so_insig 19-06-2019 08:39 PM

Yep it would be Beckie.

Eska 20-06-2019 07:57 AM

Haha I just remembered the only thing I've ever reacted to was... antihistamine cream. Oh the ironym

nonperson 20-06-2019 08:08 AM

Morning Eska.

That's quite impressive... in an odd way!

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:49 AM

That is rather ironic eska!

Morning guys

Stellata 20-06-2019 09:06 AM

Very ironic!
I'm actually quite sensitive to anti-histamines, some anyway.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 09:34 AM

It is so warm today!
I'd almost forgotten what the sun and blue sky looked like!

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 10:22 AM

Morning. It's still cloudy here. I am in the process of getting out of bed.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 10:27 AM

Do you have much planned for today?

not_so_insig 20-06-2019 11:26 AM

I have had another postcard from postcrossing arrive today! According to the website it was sent in January! It came from Russia and Russia post is slow. But I didn't think it was that slow.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 11:50 AM

Wow that is slow!

Eska 20-06-2019 01:25 PM

Afternoon everyone

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 01:34 PM

Hey eska!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 01:36 PM

That's very slow!

I'm having a jama day

Eska 20-06-2019 02:50 PM

I'm feeling quite bright today :)

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 03:02 PM

PJ days are the best

That's great to hear eska!

Had the cleaner in today so the house is lovely and clean!

Eska 20-06-2019 03:12 PM

That sounds lovely Beckie! Tomorrow is going to be my cleaning evening I think.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 03:25 PM

It is!

I have a house inspection coming up
Hate them!

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 04:20 PM

I'm glad we don't get housing inspections!

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 04:30 PM

They are so annoying!
I always leave the house all day because they come between 9-5
Its really awkward having someone look round your house and judge your housekeeping skills

not_so_insig 20-06-2019 04:36 PM

I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road. It was warm and sunny. I saw an English castle.

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 04:43 PM

Sounds like a nice day insig

I think I would have to go out too Cacoethes

nonperson 20-06-2019 05:20 PM

Hey everyone.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 05:36 PM


nonperson 20-06-2019 05:43 PM

How's it going?

I want to sleep but need to do more gardening. =(

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 06:13 PM

Not bad
Just applying for more jobs

Ah that sucks
You'll feel so good once it's all done though!

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 06:47 PM

Hi np

I'm just watching Friends but I'm very aware of the large pile of clean clothes growing upstairs that I ought to put away. Bad tamo!

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 06:59 PM

Best to go and get it over and done with tamo!
I have to put mine away straight away otherwise I probably wouldn't do it!

Stellata 20-06-2019 07:11 PM

I folded all mine fresh from the drier yesterday, then put them away, I don't like doing it either!

Restless legs are very restless today.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 07:25 PM

Restless legs are so annoying

Stellata 20-06-2019 07:27 PM

Very much so! I've had this for literally months from my meds.

chinahorse 20-06-2019 07:57 PM

Ouch, how uncomfortable katie. I get it when I don't take my magnesium supplement.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 07:58 PM

Sounds awful
Are there no meds you can go on to help with it?
I think procycladine is used a lot for side effects

Hi Lillie!

Stellata 20-06-2019 08:01 PM

Thank you both.

It's beta blocker. diazepam or anti-parkinsonism meds. I'm on a beta blocker but it barely touches the edges. Unsurprisingly because the dose is meant to be much higher. But my GP won't increase it because of the risk of my blood pressure dropping too low.
I'm now waiting on the CMHT to get back to my GP with a review plan.... This is months since I alerted the problem. I don't think they realise how serious it is.

Anyway... how are you both?

chinahorse 20-06-2019 08:02 PM

Hi Beckie, hows asda? :-P

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:02 PM

Asda is fine thanks :p

Stellata 20-06-2019 08:05 PM

I went to Asda yesterday!

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:06 PM

Yay Asda!! :-D

chinahorse 20-06-2019 08:20 PM

Is it sleepy time yet?

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:24 PM

Dont see why not Lillie!

nonperson 20-06-2019 08:32 PM

*collapses into thread*

Definitely think it's sleepy time.

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:36 PM

How's the garden coming along np?

nonperson 20-06-2019 08:43 PM

Getting there! I did like 5 hours today... x.X

My action plan is thus:

Tomorrow after work - mow the lawn and do the edging
Saturday after work - weed the front border by the gate
Sunday after work - strim the extra tall weeds/cut back brambles
Monday - day off!
Tuesday - any last minute tidying up between thunder and rain showers...


Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:45 PM

Wow thats a long time!

You can do it!

nonperson 20-06-2019 08:48 PM

I think I can. It already looks a bit better than last year so... I'm hoping even if I don't get everything done they still won't send me a nasty letter complaining about it again. =/

Cacoethes 20-06-2019 08:52 PM

I get a lot of those letters!
Hopefully won't be too bad this time as I have the cleaner in now
