They don't lindsay!
Apparently most people didn't even know it was happening :eyeroll:

Thanks np

How are you both?

Hope it goes well tamo!

nonperson 27-01-2021 03:07 PM

Hope your appointment is helpful, Tamo.

I'm not so good to be honest.

*offers chocolate chips to everyone*

(Because I'm not sitting here eating my way through a bag of them)

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 03:11 PM

What's up np?

Yay chocolate chips!
I just had a load of chocolate chip cookies. Dunked in tea. Nom

nonperson 27-01-2021 03:21 PM

Dunno, just feel really low and poop.

Mmm cookies. I think I bought the chocolate chips to make into cookies but they're too good on their own. =)

one_step_closer 27-01-2021 03:43 PM

Sorry you're not feeling great NP. I hope it passes soon. Are chocolate chips for baking not made of a different kind of chocolate?

I hope your appointment is going well/has gone well Tamo.

I'm really not good.

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 03:49 PM

Hope you feel better soon np!

Hope you feel better soon too lindsay

I have good news! The carers just called me and they can start tomorrow!
So hopefully I can have ward round then I'll be gone!

one_step_closer 27-01-2021 03:51 PM

Oh wow, that is brilliant news. Finally!

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 03:55 PM

I know! :-D
I'm so flipping happy!!!

one_step_closer 27-01-2021 03:57 PM

I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow and onwards.

nonperson 27-01-2021 04:00 PM

OMG, home warming party at Beckie's tomorrow!! =D

Yeah I think baking choc chips are made of really cheap chocolate.

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 04:09 PM

Thanks lindsay!

Yesssss np!

nonperson 27-01-2021 04:15 PM

Or maybe in a few months when gatherings are allowed again. >.>

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 04:19 PM

Ah yes. Totally forgot about that! *facepalm*

nonperson 27-01-2021 04:21 PM

It just means plenty of time for planning so it'll be the best home warming party EVER. And you just have to make sure you're there and not in hospital again. Good incentive, hm? =)

Edit: should be a welcome home party I suppose, not home warming.

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 04:26 PM

Definitely! :-D

nonperson 27-01-2021 04:37 PM

Alright, I'll get planning and won't tell you the date to keep you on your toes. =P

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 04:50 PM

Sounds like a plan! :p

nonperson 27-01-2021 05:11 PM

To be honest I've never planned a party so it's likely to just be me rocking up on your doorstep randomly with a 6 pack of beer, a big bag of crisps (half eaten) and maybe a balloon.

I'm sure I could rope someone else in from here who maybe knows your address so it'd be a surprise.

Ok this is all sounding a bit weird now. XD

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 05:27 PM

I'd be up for that! :p

one_step_closer 27-01-2021 06:33 PM

Have any of you ever had a surprise birthday party?

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 07:00 PM

I don't think so!
Have you?

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 07:25 PM

Is it really sad that I just checked if border patrol was still on TV and was actually happy that it is?

nonperson 27-01-2021 08:13 PM

I've never had a surprise party either. I think I'd hate it.

That's not sad at all!

Is it really sad that I literally skipped to the check out in Sainsbury's after finding this?

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 08:29 PM

I would totally skip to the checkout too!

nonperson 27-01-2021 08:36 PM

Ikr! Best random find ever!

I'm far too excited about this. =D

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 08:57 PM

I’m going to have to look for some when I get out!

nonperson 27-01-2021 08:58 PM


The internet is inconclusive about where else though. o.o

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 09:32 PM

Darn it!
There is a sainsburys in my town but it's a trek

nonperson 27-01-2021 09:45 PM

Might be worth it!

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 10:47 PM

It looks like I'll have to make the journey!
KFC crisps are just too good to miss!

nonperson 27-01-2021 10:54 PM

I'll let you know my verdict on them tomorrow but I'm sure the trek to get some will be totally worth it.

Cacoethes 27-01-2021 11:07 PM

Yes please do!

I'm off to bed now.
Good night and sleep well!

Pomegranate 28-01-2021 01:12 AM

Just dropping in to say ‘Happy Birthday NP!!!!’ Hope you find something to bring you smiles and get lots of kitty cuddles!

nonperson 28-01-2021 08:56 AM

Well that made smile (and blush), thanks Pomegranate. =)

Cat is soaking wet from all the rain last night. I do not want his cuddles!

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 10:54 AM

Happy birthday np!!! :-D
Hope you have a great day!.
*throws confetti*


nonperson 28-01-2021 11:06 AM

Thanks. =)

I was expecting confetti/glitter in my sister's card but she disappointed me this year.

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 11:42 AM

Ah that’s a shame!
Probably for the best though. That stuff gets everywhere!

one_step_closer 28-01-2021 12:08 PM

Happy Birthday NP! You are wonderful.

nonperson 28-01-2021 12:38 PM

Yeah I think she gave up doing that after many complaints!

Thanks Lindsay. =) You're super awesome wonderful too. <3

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 12:39 PM

I will be leaving after lunch!
I won't believe it until I'm actually in the car but I've had ward round and the consultant actually attended (he has done it by video ever since I've been here) he couldn't get out fast enough though XD

one_step_closer 28-01-2021 12:43 PM

Yay! Are you going to have a farewell lunch? Is the food good enough?

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 12:43 PM

Yes I will!
I'm hoping there will be a sandwich or salad available.

one_step_closer 28-01-2021 12:45 PM

How long will it take you to get home, travel wise?

nonperson 28-01-2021 12:57 PM

Ah that's such good news =D

Can you pick up some food supplies on the way home too?

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 12:57 PM

Probably about 40 minutes?
Luckily I don't have to get public transport because that would take me about 3 hours! Maybe more!

Ninja post np!
I'm going to ask but it might be nice to do the walk

not_so_insig 28-01-2021 12:59 PM

Happy birthday nonperson!

Will you be going to asda to celebrate your freedom Beckie?

one_step_closer 28-01-2021 01:17 PM

Asda will have a big welcoming committee just for Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-01-2021 01:17 PM

Yes I will!

nonperson 28-01-2021 01:26 PM

You're not too far away then, that's good. And I agree, the walk to and from Asda will probably be nice. =)

And thanks, Dawn. =)

not_so_insig 28-01-2021 01:39 PM

You will probably have to queue outside Asda Beckie. Dont forget your mask because the supermarkets have an "no mask no entry " policy these days.
