Awwww so sweet!

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 07:47 PM

I considered getting Molly (Lorraine's cat) a present but been as it would have gone separately and with the mail being slow it weren't worth it. Maybe next year.

nonperson 24-12-2020 07:55 PM

Aw I remember little Molly.

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 08:22 PM

She's grown up now and is according to Lorraine "a wee madam".

yoyogirl 25-12-2020 12:24 AM

Oh **** one of my best friend from the chronic illness community also has corona virus and is now on a ventilator. I hope she makes it through. I have known over 11 years and it will be so sad if she doesn’t make it through.
Please S kick that Corona’s butt.

nonperson 25-12-2020 10:51 AM

That's rough, yoyo.

Morning everyone where ever you are and whatever you're all doing. <3

yoyogirl 25-12-2020 11:09 AM

Merry Christmas to you all

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 11:38 AM

Hey guys
They are playing charades in the lounge which i am desperately trying to avoid

one_step_closer 25-12-2020 11:39 AM

Morning everyone. Look after yourselves especially today.

one_step_closer 25-12-2020 11:39 AM

Are you allowed in your room to get away from it Beckie?

nonperson 25-12-2020 12:20 PM

Look after yourself too, Lindsay.

I'm so sorry, Beckie. =( You should stay on the phone all day and set up a hectic schedule of video calls so that you can't be forced to join in.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 12:34 PM

And you lindsay

They keep trying to kick me out of my room but I keep refusing. They said I definitely need to come out at 12. Which is when we have lunch so they'll probably lock it while I'm out of my room then.
They keep trying to make deals with me

I would do np but I hate video calls!

nonperson 25-12-2020 01:00 PM

Hmm, same. Maybe pretend to be in the middle of a phone call any time someone approaches you then!

Hopefully they won't lock you out for too long.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 01:26 PM

That's a good idea!

I think they said I could go back in at 1

not_so_insig 25-12-2020 01:50 PM

I have opened my presents. I got an classic Doctor Who dvd from Lorraine.

nonperson 25-12-2020 03:16 PM

Nice. Which Doctor is it?

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 03:18 PM

We all got a present from the ward.
Fluffy socks, a colouring book, a notebook and a stress ball

Tom Baker.

Hope they allow you to colour Beckie.

nonperson 25-12-2020 03:40 PM

That's nice of them.

Stress ball though, really? >.>

nonperson 25-12-2020 03:40 PM

He's the best old Doctor. =) I've met him and he gave me a jelly baby.

tamobhuuta 25-12-2020 04:03 PM

I find stress balls good for throwing at walls.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 04:13 PM

Thanks Dawn
I'm not really that into colouring but I might try it

The stress ball is quite fun to squeeze

nonperson 25-12-2020 04:43 PM

Well I'm glad you're finding some fun in it. I just thought it was a bit of a cheesy gift, considering. =)

Definitely worth giving the colouring a go. Even if it's just something to pass a bit of time.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 05:04 PM

Oh it is a really cheesy gift!

Yeah that's true

I'm watching monty pythons Life of Brian

nonperson 25-12-2020 05:08 PM

Love that film!

I don't know whether to go for a walk or not...

tamobhuuta 25-12-2020 05:11 PM

Best line ever? He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy!

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 05:15 PM

A walk could be nice np

That's a good one tamo
Blessed are the cheesemakers!!

nonperson 25-12-2020 05:15 PM

Totally! =D

I like "Blessed are the cheesemakers" too.

nonperson 25-12-2020 05:15 PM

LOL, Beckie. XD

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 05:20 PM

Haha! Great minds!

nonperson 25-12-2020 06:29 PM


Just got back from a cold dark walk. Think I feel a bit better for it.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 06:34 PM

That's good np
Wish I could go for a walk!

nonperson 25-12-2020 06:38 PM

Aw I'm sorry. If it's any consolation it's really bloody cold out there!

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 06:56 PM

Thanks . I probably wouldn't enjoy it as I've only got my hoodie with me. No coat. So I'd most likely freeze and be miserable

nonperson 25-12-2020 07:02 PM

Yeah, being outside without the correct attire is never nice. To be honest it wasn't the most relaxing walk as it was in the dark and because there are no street lights I'm constantly expecting a person to jump out at me. Heard some guy's voices somewhere in the distance which freaked me out for a bit.

The fresh air and activity probably did me good though.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 07:23 PM

That does sound freaky!

Fresh air and activity is always good though

nonperson 25-12-2020 07:42 PM

It certainly made me hungry.

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 08:07 PM

Yes it does that!
Do you have anything yummy to eat?

nonperson 25-12-2020 10:28 PM

Yeah I got home and made my mishmash Christmas dinner. =)

Cacoethes 25-12-2020 10:44 PM


nonperson 25-12-2020 10:50 PM

It wasn't bad. More like a casserole though with added parsnips. Filled a hole!

Cacoethes 26-12-2020 12:16 PM

Morning guys

not_so_insig 26-12-2020 12:19 PM

Morning Beckie how goes it in ip land?

As a side note I just realised today that my Christmas card to felix and bolt the Huddersfield Station cats has been featured on their Facebook page. Am happy.

Cacoethes 26-12-2020 12:39 PM

Same old really!
Just waiting for the inevitable moment that they come to kick me out of my room
I have got dressed and brushed my hair for the first time in 2 days though

Awww that's good! :)

not_so_insig 26-12-2020 12:42 PM

Well done for getting dressed and brushing your hair Beckie!

Cacoethes 26-12-2020 12:52 PM

Thanks Dawn :)

Are you up to much today?

not_so_insig 26-12-2020 12:56 PM

No just relaxing and watching TV. Might read one of my new books.

Cacoethes 26-12-2020 12:58 PM

Sounds good!

tamobhuuta 26-12-2020 01:44 PM


Cacoethes 26-12-2020 02:05 PM
