Cacoethes 15-06-2020 07:15 PM

My fan came :)

The Worst Witch 15-06-2020 07:24 PM

I got lots of chocolate :). It was busy but we at least managed to get everything

Yay for your fan!

Cacoethes 15-06-2020 07:42 PM

Yay chocolate!
Glad you managed to get everything

Yep! Hopefully won't be too uncomfortable sleeping now!

The Worst Witch 16-06-2020 06:30 AM

Morning guys, how are we all?

EyelinerAndCigarettes 16-06-2020 07:09 AM


I'm so sleepy! I think it's all the coffee day today.

How are you?

chinahorse 16-06-2020 07:40 AM

Morning guys :-)

I'm sleepy too but am starting on the tea!

tamobhuuta 16-06-2020 10:25 AM

I'm on my 3rd coffee, i think I am starting to wake up. Anyone got plans for today?

The Worst Witch 16-06-2020 10:39 AM

I fell back to sleep for an hour, oops! I was really sleepy too. Trying to get back into a routine with my sleep, its been all over the place since lockdown started.

No exciting plans for me! I’m trying to go theough the mountain of life admin stuff I’ve neglected for ages.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 11:06 AM

Morning everyone

I hope you all have a good day!

Nothing exciting for me.
Just an asda delivery. With 2 substitutions. Grrrrr!

The Worst Witch 16-06-2020 12:01 PM

I hate substitutions, they’re usually more expensive than the original thing you wanted! I always tick ‘no substitutions’ when getting an online delivery, but to be fair during lockdown I’ve found it much easier (and cheaper) to just go yourself. I would only get heavy stuff like cat litter and fizzy juice delivered now.

I need to get a move on and phone my GP. He’s supposed to be referring me to the CMHT, but I’m not hopeful because the last time I was referred (about a year ago) they declined the referral. How is one supposed to get help woth mentals if the CMHT won’t see you?! Its ridiculous.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 12:21 PM

I usually go to asda every day or every other day to get stuff but thought I'd treat myself!
I got a lot of heavy stuff.
Luckily the only substitutions weren't too far off what I wanted. One was only a different flavour of jelly which is fine.

The system is most definitely flawed when it comes to mental health referrals.
I hope you get somewhere this time!

chinahorse 16-06-2020 12:50 PM

Do they still have that thing where you fan choose which items you'll let them substitute and with what? I used to do that. Glad yours were ok though beckie. Jealous you managed to get a delivery slot!

I hope the MH team can at least signpost where you can get help if they themselves cant. Good luck with life admin.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 01:10 PM

Yes you can still do that. I chose not to though because the substitutions were ok.
I am surprised I managed to get a slot tbh!

How are you today Lillie?

chinahorse 16-06-2020 01:15 PM

Fair enough beckie.

I'm rubbish tbh

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 01:28 PM

Sorry to hear that Lillie :(
I hope you feel better soon

chinahorse 16-06-2020 01:39 PM


not_so_insig 16-06-2020 05:34 PM

It's thundering here. Has been for over an hour.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 06:04 PM

Gone really cloudy here

tamobhuuta 16-06-2020 06:56 PM

I suggested we have spaghetti hoops for dinner but got shouted down.

chinahorse 16-06-2020 07:09 PM

Not really a dinner spaghetti hoops, however good they are.

We had a full blown storm but its ok again now.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 07:17 PM

We had some slight rain but it's now sunny again

chinahorse 16-06-2020 08:26 PM

What's everyone had for tea then?

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 08:30 PM

I had a burger.
Supposed to be eating healthier. Oops!

What about you Lillie?

chinahorse 16-06-2020 08:36 PM

Burgerscan be healthy depending on how you cook it and what you have with it.

I have chips in the oven.

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 08:43 PM

That is true!
I cooked it in frylight so it probably wasn't too bad

Yummy! Are you having anything with your chips?

chinahorse 16-06-2020 08:48 PM

Salt and vinegar?

Cacoethes 16-06-2020 08:59 PM

Sounds good!

chinahorse 17-06-2020 09:52 AM

Morning all :-)

tamobhuuta 17-06-2020 10:12 AM

Hi how are you?

chinahorse 17-06-2020 10:17 AM

Procrastinating things.

How are you? Up to much today?

Cacoethes 17-06-2020 11:16 AM


Hope you have a good day guys

My phone is warning me of thunderstorms. Weird considering it's sunny and hot at the moment!

chinahorse 17-06-2020 11:19 AM

Yesterday was like that here beckie. Then epic 5thunderstorm.

Cacoethes 17-06-2020 11:33 AM

I hope we do have one. I like thunderstorms.
Might clear the air a bit as well. It's been quite muggy

chinahorse 17-06-2020 01:11 PM

Yeah the storms here cleared the air which is much better. I like heat but not humidity.

What's everyone up to?

tamobhuuta 17-06-2020 01:29 PM

We had thunder but no rain yesterday. It's muggy here.

No plans today.

Cacoethes 17-06-2020 01:30 PM

I nearly swallowed about 3 thunder bugs on my way back from the cmht.
Had a surprise depot injection. Just got back and going to have some soup for lunch.

What about you Lillie?

tamobhuuta 17-06-2020 03:10 PM

What a nice surprise Cacoethes..

Cacoethes 17-06-2020 03:11 PM

Isn't it just!

The rain had begun

Cacoethes 17-06-2020 06:22 PM

The rain stopped after about 15 minutes and no storm.
I am disappointed. I was promised a storm!

not_so_insig 17-06-2020 09:34 PM

No rain here but it got a bit windy before

chinahorse 18-06-2020 06:16 AM

Morning all. Anyone want a hyper cat? I will pay you to have him for a few hours.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 18-06-2020 06:37 AM

I already have a hyper cat but perhaps they could be hyper together and tire eachother out!

chinahorse 18-06-2020 06:48 AM

Seems like a good idea. Mines been shut out the bedroom. Was doing my head in.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 18-06-2020 08:08 AM

Understandable! My cat drives me bonkers sometimes

chinahorse 18-06-2020 08:22 AM

They are cheeky little sods at times.

Cacoethes 18-06-2020 10:12 AM

Morning guys

I think I'll pass on the hyper cat! Sorry!
It sounds very annoying!

tamobhuuta 18-06-2020 10:29 AM

*comes up with an excuse*

Morning all. I'm waiting between breakfast and tea time watching a nature programme. Zero energy.

Cacoethes 18-06-2020 12:49 PM

Hey tamo
Hopefully the tea will give you a bit more energy!

Does anyone else get worried that their washing machine is going to randomly blow up when in use?
I've suddenly become really anxious about it for some reason!

The Worst Witch 18-06-2020 01:27 PM

I can’t comment Beckie because our washing machine is only 6 months old, the council gave us it when we moved in. The bed they gave us has already caved in though, so if it did blow up it wouldn’t surprise me!

I’m just going to the bank and the shop today, my direct debit for my phone bill didn’t go out of my bank but I do have money in it. Its not a holiday today is it?

Cacoethes 18-06-2020 01:37 PM

Mine is 3 years old and was brand new so it should be ok. The only thing is it's a washer dryer and dryers have the tendency to break apparently!

I don't think it is a holiday today.
That's odd!
