Ugh a few people at work are off with either covid or a really bad cold, some have positive tests, some don't. But I'm exhausted this week and I've not done anything more than normal.

I don't have time to get sick!

Cacoethes 24-03-2023 10:13 AM

I know that feeling!
Well, I have time to be sick now, but at home i don't!

Morning everyone

long road 24-03-2023 10:39 AM


I am very achy and may attempt to get a little bit more sleep as I kept waking up last night, I think due to pain. Pain is still here this morning but thankfully less.

How are things with you Beckie? Hope it's a bit quieter today.

Cacoethes 24-03-2023 10:48 AM

More sleep sounds like a good plan.
I'm glad the pain is a little bit better

Not really but I've put my headphones in.
The girl next door has her door open because she's on 1:1 and likes to play music out loud and sing :plain:

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 11:15 AM

Morning all,

I'm just getting ready for work. SO glad it's not my working weekend too!

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 11:19 AM

I wasn't around to accept a parcel this morning. And I don't know what it is!

Cacoethes 24-03-2023 11:27 AM

Hope work is ok!

Oooh mystery parcel!

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 11:29 AM

Let us know what it is!!!

Does anyone fancy doing my 9 hour shift today so I can stay in bed? ;)

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 11:34 AM

Ummm... no! My big job for the day is to go to Confession. Then watch doctor who. No doctors because it's Friday :(

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 11:43 AM

You sure? 9 hours in animal A&E not sound appealing?

Cacoethes 24-03-2023 11:44 AM

I would definitely take you up on that offer if i wasn't locked up!
I LOVE animals!
And i miss my jobs. The bar and outside area are dog friendly, we have water bowls and treats for them!
Best part of my job is fussing all the cute dog.
There's a tiny dachshund called Beans who tries to square up to all the big dogs XD

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 01:23 PM

I can cope with one healthy animal (depending on the animal) for short periods.

long road 24-03-2023 02:47 PM

Nap and then a hot shower and now I feel mostly human! Off to try staying in a cottage with some friends for the weekend soon. Hopefully it goes ok.

Gah to someone who plays music out loud and sings with door open. (I know she can't help door open part but still). What you listening to?

Beans sound an awesome little sausage dog.

I unfortunately have too many allergies to do your job Ahimsa!

one_step_closer 24-03-2023 03:08 PM

Hey everyone.

Do you try and sneak some dog time at work when you can, Beckie? You seem to have found a good job what with the staff who are there for you and doggos!

I hope you are able to enjoy your weekend, Jen.

I hope work is going well, Ahisma. Do you have the weekend off?

Have you opened your parcel yet, Tamo?

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 04:20 PM

I’m excited to hear about this parcel!!

Yes I’m off this weekend, I work 1 in 4. Luckily it’s not been too busy today so I’ve got quite a bit of work done which is a win!

one_step_closer 24-03-2023 05:12 PM

That's good. Do you have anything planned for the weekend?

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 06:29 PM

Unfortunately they took my parcel back to the office, so I'll have to go collect it!

one_step_closer 24-03-2023 06:41 PM

Oh no, I hate when that happens. Is the office open tomorrow for you to collect it or will you have to wait till Monday?

long road 24-03-2023 07:06 PM

Safely arrived at the house and settling in. Waiting for the other friends to arrive so just chilling for now. It is super fancy modern decor.

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 07:09 PM

I think the office is open tomorrow morning but not the afternoon. Not sure I can be bothered to get there early and queue!

tamobhuuta 24-03-2023 08:46 PM

L got me Colin the caterpillar cheesecake!

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 09:43 PM

Ahh yay for cake!!

Ahimsa 24-03-2023 11:09 PM

Is anyone still awake?

long road 25-03-2023 12:27 AM

I am. What's up?

not_so_insig 25-03-2023 08:58 AM

Morning all. I cant find my glasses so am wandering around blind. So until I can find them forgive any typos I may make today.

Cacoethes 25-03-2023 10:18 AM

Oh no! I can't see a thing without my glasses!
Well, close up things are ok but far away, no chance.
And it's hard to search for glasses when you can't see!

long road 25-03-2023 11:20 AM

Morning! I am up and have made bacon and eggs for myself and the friends I am staying with. Just chilling for a bit.

Hope you find your glasses soon!

tamobhuuta 25-03-2023 11:22 AM

I hope you find your glasses insig!

How are you Cacoethes?

I woke up an hour early with a funny tummy :( but i had my breakfast in front of doctor who :)

tamobhuuta 25-03-2023 11:22 AM

Hi long road :)

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 11:30 AM

Hi all.

Oh no, how annoying about your glasses Insig

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 11:33 AM

I really need to get up and wash my hair, its been about a week!

And feed the cats, they're all at the bedroom door <3

tamobhuuta 25-03-2023 12:19 PM

If it was me I would feed the cats first then tackle the hairwash.

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 12:21 PM

Ahh don't worry, they've made sure of that!!! They're all fed and happy now :)

tamobhuuta 25-03-2023 12:55 PM

Do you have any plans for today? I think my big sister is coming round.

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 01:04 PM

Aww nice! What're you going to do?

I've got a class booked at 1, (and I'm walking there and back) and then I need to go pick up some trousers from Next that I've ordered, so I'll have a look round the charity shops near there too - and then it'll be cracking on with housework!

tamobhuuta 25-03-2023 01:21 PM

Ooo shopping! Do you have anything in mind at the charity shops?

We'll just chat and drink coffee :)

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 01:42 PM

Ahh no, it just kills some time and I may spot some bargains!

I drove to my class cos it’s raining and I don’t want to get there drenched!

not_so_insig 25-03-2023 02:17 PM

I have found my glasses! Hurray I can see.

one_step_closer 25-03-2023 02:27 PM

Hi everyone.

I'm glad you can now see, Dawn! How can you lose your glasses though? Mine are always in the same places.

Sounds like a good start to the day, Jen.

I hope you enjoy seeing your big sister, Tamo.

Sounds like you have a well planned out day, Ahisma. Hope you don't have too much housework to do.

How are you doing, Beckie?

not_so_insig 25-03-2023 02:37 PM

I usually put them around the alarum clock but I went to sleep with them on and they fell off my face. When that happens they usually in the bedding but nope they fell behind the bed this time. I only found them when I moved my bed (it's a solid thing) and even then I had to use the feather duster to reach them. So I have them on right now and I am glad that I have found them.

one_step_closer 25-03-2023 02:53 PM

I'm glad you found them too. Do you do things in bed that need you to wear glasses?

not_so_insig 25-03-2023 02:55 PM

Yes I need to wear my glasses all the time i am awake. Otherwise I can't see much.

not_so_insig 25-03-2023 03:08 PM

I just read that someone on Facebook got their coffee substituted for gravy in their supermarket delivery. Then another person got tassimo pods instead of dolce gusto pods. That was asda btw.

long road 25-03-2023 06:09 PM

Making a cup of gravy instead of a cup of coffe is not a mistake you want to make! Imagine if they didn't realise!

Glad you found your glasses Dawn I too wear my glasses all the time and everywhere. I tend to lose mine when I take them off to brush my hair or if I switch into prescription sunglasses and don't put glasses in sunglasses case.

Ahimsa 25-03-2023 06:10 PM

Hi all

long road 25-03-2023 06:14 PM

Afternoon! I am just having a rest away from the group. Needed some time to recharge. It is a very nice holiday house.

My main complaint is the bed maybe too soft.

How was your shopping/browsing Ahimsa?

one_step_closer 25-03-2023 06:16 PM

Is it a computer that decides the substitutions do you think?

I never do anything in bed except try to sleep and sleep (and snack sometimes) so I put my glasses in their case on my desk before I go to sleep so don't lose them that way. I put them on the toilet when I'm washing my hair and the rest of the time they're on my face so I always know where they are.

Hi Ahisma, how is your day going?

one_step_closer 25-03-2023 06:17 PM

I'm glad you've been able to notice you need some time away from the group and manage to do so, Jen. What have you been up to?

long road 25-03-2023 06:20 PM

Just hanging out and doing some roleplaying. Purpose of meetup is finale of a long running campaign. So that's what happening today then tomorrow we are going out for a pub lunch before everyone heads home.

I could not handle my glasses being on the toilet I would be worried about germs and about them falling in. I put mine on windowsill or wonder half blind between bedroom and bathroom
