Cacoethes 21-09-2022 12:52 PM

Oh i am constantly exhausted!
But i want to make the most of my time here!
I still have a while before the van gogh museum. I have a ticket for 2:45pm (it's only 1:50pm now)
So I'm chilling in the park bit near the museum.

Vogue is full of pretty things!

tamobhuuta 21-09-2022 02:17 PM

Is the park pretty?

The nurse said I couldn't leave. Just because I don't have leave. So unreasonable.

one_step_closer 21-09-2022 02:44 PM

I'm glad you're enjoying Amsterdam, Beckie. Yay for seeing your favourite band later.

It's not unreasonable not to let you out at this time, Tamo. I'm sure even a tiny bit of you can understand that. Work with the staff and hopefully you'll feel better asap and be allowed to do various things and then get home. You can do it.

tamobhuuta 21-09-2022 03:50 PM

I know she was being reasonable really osc :)

Cacoethes 21-09-2022 04:02 PM

It was a lovely park!

Not having leave sucks.
At least you're not a smoker!
When i smoked and wasn't allowed out it was the absolute WORST!

one_step_closer 21-09-2022 05:04 PM

That must have been tough, Beckie. I'm glad you don't smoke now for ALL the reasons.

I hope you're doing ok, Tamo.

Cacoethes 21-09-2022 05:11 PM

Yeah it was frickin awful!
Caused so many kick offs too!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 21-09-2022 05:14 PM

I missed the unofficial walking group so I'm annoyed with myself.

When is your concert?

Cacoethes 21-09-2022 05:25 PM

That's a shame.
No need to be annoyed with yourself though, it happens!

Doors open at 7pm. Takes about 40 mins to walk there so I'll set off in a minute!

tamobhuuta 21-09-2022 06:30 PM

Sorry you missed your group osc :(

I hope you're enjoying your concert Cacoethes.

not_so_insig 21-09-2022 06:50 PM

Hello all. I am better mentally today. Had an 2 parcels by 2 different couriers both come at exactly the same time before. I was pleased because it meant that I could have a shower :-D . One of my parcels was clothes and a new pair of trainers. They all fit just got the horrible task of breaking in my new shoes. I hate breaking in new shoes.

Cacoethes 21-09-2022 07:01 PM

Thanks tamo!
Support act has just finished, they were pretty good!
Now they're setting up the stage for POTF!!

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 07:41 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 07:54 AM

Hello Beckie how are you? Hope you're enjoying your holiday

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 08:06 AM

Hello Dawn!
I'm ok thanks. I'm having a wonderful time!

How are you doing?

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 08:28 AM

I am ok apart from being annoyed that I am awake so bastard early. But my mh is ok. I also had a surprise last night from my energy company I am being refunded some money. Also my amazon parcel which was supposed to come tomorrow is coming today which is much more convenient as I might have to go to the cmht tomorrow.

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 08:57 AM

Getting up early can suck.
I had a bit of a lie in today. Got up at 8:15!
Did have a late night though!

Refunded money is always a nice surprise!

tamobhuuta 22-09-2022 10:12 AM

Morning guys. Wi fi here is rubbish so I'm using my data up really fast :(

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 10:21 AM

Oh no!
Hospital wifi can suck. Luckily at my usial ward is ok. But one ward if your room is not near the office, you're not getting wifi!

tamobhuuta 22-09-2022 10:27 AM

It sucks. How was the concert?

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 10:30 AM

It was amazing thanks!

Going to head off to chinatown and the red light district in a bit

tamobhuuta 22-09-2022 10:33 AM

Why do you want to go to the red light district?

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 10:50 AM

It's one of the things that Amsterdam is famous for. So it's basically a tourist attraction these days. You can even do guided tours there!

tamobhuuta 22-09-2022 01:30 PM

Wow! I hope you have fun...

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 01:45 PM

It was pretty interesting! Bit awkward with all the women in lingerie dancing in windows. Wasn't sure where to look XD
But I'm glad i went. Just something you have to do when you're in Amsterdam!

How's your day going?

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 02:20 PM

Beckie did you know that next Thursday a new series of Taskmaster starts? 9 pm Channel 4.

one_step_closer 22-09-2022 02:45 PM

Hi everyone.

I'm glad you're enjoying your holiday, Beckie. I'd be too embarrassed to go to the red light district!

I'm glad you're doing better mentally, Dawn. Well done for managing everything without turning to dangerous things. Nice, getting a refund!

Are you going to run out of data, Tamo? I hope you can still keep in contact with people and us.

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 03:32 PM

Thanks Lindsay. My cpn said the same. I am slowly cleaning my flat.

It's currently pissing it down here. Fortunately I am not going outside again today as my bins have been collected.

one_step_closer 22-09-2022 04:48 PM

Have you got much cleaning to do, Dawn?

No rain here but it was really early on.

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 05:59 PM

It's stopped raining now. I have a fair amount of cleaning left to do. Hoover the scratch post, dust my living room, put the dishes away, mop the entire flat, clean the kitchen sink, put the laundry away is what's left.

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 06:26 PM

Yes i did know about taskmaster! Thanks dawn :)
Dara O brian is going to be in this series! I love him!

Thanks lindsay!
I was slightly embarrassed! Lol
If i have time tomorrow, I'm going to go to the sex museum.

Hope you got on ok with your tasks dawn!

I've just been on a canal cruise. It was fun!
Got chatting to some lovely Americans. They said they were very jealous of our ability to queue! They even said they preferred the word 'queue' to being 'in a line'
They also asked me if the origin of queueing came from world war 2 when people had to queue for rations. Which is a very interesting question!
Then explained to one man that the 20 notes with the queen on are still ok to use, it's just the old paper ones that you can't use or trade in from the end of the month.

not_so_insig 22-09-2022 07:26 PM

I still haven't finished. Got to finish off the mopping, hoover the scratching post and dust the living room. But I have finished everything else :-)

Cacoethes 22-09-2022 07:27 PM

Well done!

tamobhuuta 22-09-2022 07:54 PM

Well done insig!

My bed time soon.

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 07:18 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 23-09-2022 09:26 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 10:18 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Gutted it's my last day though!
Train isn't until 6:57 so i have time to do stuff

How are you?

tamobhuuta 23-09-2022 11:09 AM

I've tried to leave the ward twice.

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 12:50 PM

I spent €25 on pick n mix lol

That almost never works
Waste of energy

one_step_closer 23-09-2022 03:37 PM

Please stay on the ward Tamo and let them help you. You've not had a chance to have a proper review yet.

Pic n mix is good but how big is a 25 euro bag?!

I hope your holiday has been good overall and you get home without any fuss.

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 04:05 PM

It was quite a big bag!
Munchies lol

Thanks! I have really enjoyed myself

one_step_closer 23-09-2022 04:36 PM

What's been your best holiday if you had to choose?

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 04:58 PM

Probably this one tbh!
I don't often want return to a place again (not because i didn't like it, i just like to go to new places) but i would definitely come back to Amsterdam!

Train is in about an hour.
The eurostar terminal is so weird!
It's literally just like one room, no shops or anything. Only a crappy coffee machine and some seats. Not even a lot of seats!

tamobhuuta 23-09-2022 06:36 PM

I hope you're having a good journey home Cacoethes.

How are you osc?

Cacoethes 23-09-2022 07:15 PM

Thanks tamo!
I'm bored already! Won't get back to London until 10pm and then got to get a train home from there.
It's all good though

Hope you are ok!

Cacoethes 24-09-2022 08:59 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 24-09-2022 10:05 AM

Good morning, how are you? Up to much today?

Cacoethes 24-09-2022 11:01 AM

I had taekwando this morning.
Needed to catch up after missing Thursday
Also need to go to asda and pick up meds

How are you?

one_step_closer 24-09-2022 11:52 AM

Welcome home and back to normality, Beckie. I hope you can get back into your routine easily. I hope you get everything done and then either relax or find other things to occupy yourself with but not too much.

How are you, Tamo?

Cacoethes 24-09-2022 01:45 PM

Thanks lindsay!
I have done all my stuff

How are you?
