I'm on the last Harry Potter.

Cacoethes 17-10-2021 03:26 PM

No I watched the last episode of taskmaster earlier!
I'm watching The Nut Job now.
Well, half watching it and half internetting

Good choice tamo

not_so_insig 17-10-2021 04:02 PM

That reminds me Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is on Thursday on itv2 with Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets on Friday.

Cacoethes 17-10-2021 04:11 PM

I've got them all on amazon anyway

not_so_insig 17-10-2021 04:11 PM

I have them all on dvd.

Cacoethes 17-10-2021 04:19 PM

I don't own DVDs anymore.
I don't even have anything to play DVDs on!

not_so_insig 17-10-2021 06:13 PM

I have about a hundred dvds. I have a player attached to my TV and a portable dvd player. I bought the portable dvd player for when I thought I was going IP but it never happened. I love old programmes especially period dramas.

Cacoethes 17-10-2021 06:42 PM

I just use my ipad when I go IP

I've put my washing away, showered and put my brand new bed sheets on!
It's going to be nice getting into bed tonight!

not_so_insig 17-10-2021 07:18 PM

When I thought I was going ip last there was no WiFi and my local IP is known for having no signal on mobile phones regardless of network so I had to entertain myself somehow. I would take it probably again if I was IP. At least I won't be subjected to Jeremy Kyle which is what happened last time.

Cacoethes 17-10-2021 07:26 PM

Jeremy Kyle hasn't been on for like 10 years now so think you're safe from that!
My local hospitals all have wifi!

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 10:33 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 18-10-2021 11:32 AM

Hi how are you?

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 11:36 AM

I'm ok thanks!

tamobhuuta 18-10-2021 11:53 AM

I'm ok. It's so greeeeey here.

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 11:57 AM

Yep same here!
My phone is saying it's meant to rain for the next 4 days!

one_step_closer 18-10-2021 12:03 PM

Afternoon. It was bucketing down when I went for my prescription. Got soaked. Had to changed my jeans when I got in.

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 12:05 PM

Hey lindsay!
Oh no!
I hope you're warm and dry now
Nothing worse than wet clothes

one_step_closer 18-10-2021 12:12 PM

Yeah I'm warm and dry now.

What's everyone doing today?

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 12:19 PM

Good :)

I've made 2 important phone calls this morning. Need to go to asda and pharmacy and work at 6.
How about you?

not_so_insig 18-10-2021 12:50 PM

Afternoon all. My postcard to Russia arrived today. That means I have none travelling as all the ones I sent this month have arrived. I have some cat related Halloween ones so will send them next.

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 01:36 PM

Forgot about the pharmacy closing between 1-2pm
Luckily I don't actually need my meds until Wednesday!

one_step_closer 18-10-2021 03:31 PM

Did you get to Asda Beckie? You have a lot on today.

Cat themed halloween postcards sound cool Dawn.

I've mostly been reading. Been struggling to do most things for a while now.

Cacoethes 18-10-2021 03:52 PM

Yes I did!
It started raining 5 minutes after I got home
It's still raining!

That sounds tough lindsay
Have you been reading anything good?

one_step_closer 18-10-2021 05:22 PM

I hope your shift goes well Beckie.

Just read it's going to snow in some parts of Scotland from Thursday and it's to be generally freezing everywhere. I hate the cold!

I don't know how much I'm taking in when I'm reading but some books have been good. It feels like a waste of time but it's all I can do to get through the day safely.

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 09:15 AM

Thanks lindsay

Sorry you're still feeling so rubbish

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 19-10-2021 10:47 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 11:05 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Apart from a massive headache!
But I've taken some paracetamol so it should go soon

How are you?

one_step_closer 19-10-2021 11:28 AM

Morning everyone.

I hope your headache eases soon Beckie.

How are you Tamo?

What is everyone up to today?

tamobhuuta 19-10-2021 11:32 AM

I hope the pain gets better soon.
I'm ok, I've got my blood test at 12.30

tamobhuuta 19-10-2021 11:32 AM

Hi osc how are you?

one_step_closer 19-10-2021 11:36 AM

I hope your blood test goes quickly and easily Tamo. Will you treat yourself afterwards?

I'm still not great. Waiting on a phone call once someone talks to my psych if they can catch them. I need to go for my meds but don't know if I should go out in case I miss the call.

not_so_insig 19-10-2021 12:38 PM

Hello all. I am in a lot of physical pain right now.

tamobhuuta 19-10-2021 01:58 PM

That's a tough decision osc. Could you ring them and give them your mobile number?

Sorry you're in pain, have you had any painkillers insig?

not_so_insig 19-10-2021 04:12 PM

I am in less pain now than before tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 04:39 PM

I got to leave work early because I didn't feel great
Then had a seizure on the way home
Fortunately 2 off duty police officers happened to be walking past and helped me home.

not_so_insig 19-10-2021 04:40 PM

Oh noes Beckie but glad you had help.

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 04:57 PM


How's your day been?

one_step_closer 19-10-2021 05:31 PM

You seem to be having a lot of seizures recently Beckie, do you know what's causing them? Weren't you seizure free for a long time? Take care of yourself.

I hope you are pain free soon Dawn.

They have my mobile number Tamo but it would be awkward talking about things in public. I just went for my prescription early and they phoned when I had been home for a while. They've got me an appointment with my psych on the 29th which feels like too far away.

How are you Tamo?

What is everyone doing this evening?

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 05:51 PM

It's probably just change in routine or something
The gp called me and said to get in touch with neurologist. So I'll call his secretary tomorrow

The 29th does seem quite far away. But still pretty good for a psych appointment time.
It's good you have an appointment

I'm just watching TV atm

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 09:18 AM

Morning everyone!

There's supposed to be a thunderstorm today but it's quite sunny
Though it looks like it rained a lot during the night

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 12:17 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are you Cacoethes?.

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 12:19 PM

It's muggy here.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 12:23 PM


I'm ok thanks

I haven't been outside yet so can't comment on mugginess!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 12:40 PM

I am ok. Slept well thanks to PRN. Do you have any plans?

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 12:43 PM

Afternoon all. I woke up not in pain today. But my eyes are very watery and itchy :-(

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 12:49 PM

I am waiting for my amazon parcel and then need to go to asda and pharmacy.
I'm also doing washing!
Have you got much planned?

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 01:35 PM

Hello Beckie. It sounds you have a busy day.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 01:36 PM

Just the usual really!
Will only take me about 30 mins depending on whether there's a queue at the pharmacy

Have you got much planned today?

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 01:42 PM

No I just have to take out the recycling and wash my hair. I have to think about what to have for tea.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 01:44 PM

That reminds me, need to take out the recycling and bin also!

Have you got much in?
