I went to asda and a charity shop after my last post!
But i have returned!

Zurg 08-05-2023 11:04 AM

I am awaiting the delivery of a very heavy parcel that i really want to stay at home for to avoid having to Pick it up at the parcel delivery shop!!!! But i also want to go and get my Weekly food shop out of the Way and this is a very stressful situation for an awkward person like myself!!!

My support worker was here for 40 minutes or so. It seems a bit ridiculous. I'm contemplating whether we should call it quits soon because my life is so boring and predictable that we just end up having nothing to talk about…..

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 11:08 AM

Do you have a rough time of the delivery?
Can you rearrange the day?

Sometimes it's nice to have someone to talk to! Even if it is about boring things.
But I'm one of these people that will ramble on about nonsense to pretty much anyone XD

long road 08-05-2023 11:28 AM

Morning all!

I am a bit discombobulated this morning. Want to chat but brain all over the place. Thinking of you all xx

Zurg 08-05-2023 11:29 AM

Parcel just came :D
Findus finds it very exciting that a huge and heavy box has invaded our corridor. I hope he doesn't Think it's his birthday present!!!! O_o

Just having a coffee and a bun before going food shopping.

I do like company and my support worker is nice. But i wonder if it's really neccessary….

Edit; had to put parcel on the floor in my livingroom. Findus found it too exciting and ended up nearly tipping it over and on to himself….. *facepalm*

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 11:34 AM

Hope you feel more bobulated soon jen!

Yaay parcel!

Lol, findus is hilarious!
He gets up to all sorts of mischief!

Pi.R^2 08-05-2023 11:58 AM

I do love joke PRs Lio! Though one letter at a time would be annoying.

Beckie - did you get anything nice at the charity shop?

Zurg - lol at Findus! Is there anything you would like to change in your life that maybe the support worker could help with, if you're finding there's not a lot to talk about?

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 12:04 PM

I just went in there to donate some clothes.
Did an impulse clear out of my under bed storage!

Annoying you say....?

tamobhuuta 08-05-2023 12:10 PM

I sorted out my meds boxes for the week :)

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 12:14 PM

Well done!

It is raining.
It started on the walk home.
Glad i got all my outside stuff done!

Pi.R^2 08-05-2023 12:22 PM

Well done on the tidying Beckie and the meds sorting tamo. Alas, it is raining here too but I guess I wouldn't have time for gardening today anyway.

I finished my most recent task 40 minutes early, hooray!

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 12:34 PM

Thank you!
Love a good clear out!

Yaay! Well done!

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 12:46 PM

Hey everyone. The only real task I have on my to do list was to wash my hair and that's done. Done some little things I usually do too like put a Zox wristband on eBay to sell which I do most days. I have a lot of them but went off them, just kept some that really speak to me.

I have read all your posts but can't keep up, sorry! It will be easier now I'm here!

I'm a bit behind with the convo but wanted to say this is genius! :shocked:

tamobhuuta 08-05-2023 12:51 PM

Well done everyone for things achieved.

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 12:58 PM

Well done lindsay :)

Lio is an expert at jenna trolling

I've been here over 10 years and i don't think I've ever had to do a captcha! Apart from possibly when i first joined!

I have been here over 20 years. My first account was registered in April 2003. Had to change it to my current account for stalker reasons though hence why it says 2004 not 2003. Not because I was banned.

tamobhuuta 08-05-2023 01:04 PM

Who would ban the lovely insig!

Ahimsa 08-05-2023 01:06 PM

Hey guys, how is everyone?

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:08 PM

Could we be nice to Jenna today? Is that a thing?

Hi, Beth. How is your day going?

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:08 PM

Hello beth!

I am ok. Very bored!
All this sitting around is really getting to me!
At least i have the guinea pigs to talk to!

How are you?

No lindsay. We cannot. Because she keeps roasting me XD

Ahimsa 08-05-2023 01:11 PM

I’m okay, exhausted and at work!

Be nice to Jenna?

not_so_insig 08-05-2023 01:11 PM

Thanks tamobhuuta. I am ok Beth. Looking forward to the Badminton coverage on the telly later.

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:11 PM

What conversation are you having with the guinea pigs? Are they good conversationalists?

Sitting around is boring. I hope you can find something to entertain you.

Maybe we can also have a be nice to Beckie day today then.

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:13 PM

Hopefully it's getting less cold at work now!

Merry is making little chatty noises to himself
Haven't seen pippin in a while! I don't want to disturb his nap but i worry XD
They do tend to go for a nap around this time of day

I have been reminding them a lot that they are lucky to be indoor pigs, with how the weather has been!
Just whatever pops into my head really! And telling them they are good boys for eating their peppers!

Be nice to Beckie day sounds good to me!

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:13 PM

Exhausted at work doesn't sound like fun. When do you finish? Knowing you you'll have more things to do afterwards, do you? Is being nice to Jenna just not a thing?

How long does a badminton match last, Dawn?

Ahimsa 08-05-2023 01:14 PM

I finish at half 5.

I need to do all my chores but I need a nap first. And a bath. It’s been too many days since I’ve done that.

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:14 PM

Beckie, do they just nap and eat or do they do tricks? Maybe you could train them.

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:16 PM

So many posts it looks like I'm replying to the wrong things!

I hope the time passes quickly, Beth and you have a nice nap and bath and get your chores done if you really, really need to.

Ahimsa 08-05-2023 01:17 PM

I mean, I have no clean plates or cutlery for any dinner, and I can’t sit on the sofa because it’s full of washing I need to put away.

So I sort of do need to!

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:18 PM

5:30 seems so far away! I guess it'll go faster if you're busy though.

They also scream for food every time i open the fridge XD
And they chat to each other too. They're actually really fun to watch, even though they don't really do an awful lot!

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:19 PM

Oh well, I guess you better prioritise that then, Beth! I hope it's not too much of a task.

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:21 PM

They do sound cute and entertaining, Beckie. I wonder what they're saying to each other.

I don't know if we're even allowed to be nice to Jenna, Zippit.

Ahimsa 08-05-2023 01:23 PM

I wish I knew what the cats were saying when they do their little chirrups!

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:27 PM

They're probably discussing how they obviously don't get fed enough and they're STARVING! :eyeroll:
The scales certainly say otherwise XD

I do have to tell Merry to leave Pippin alone a lot. He's the more dominant one (herd animals so there's a hierarchy) and even when pippin is sitting at the other end of the cage, minding his own business, Merry will come along and decide to put pippin in his place. Poor pippin!

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:34 PM

Aww poor Pippin. Does Merry listen to you and leave him alone or just ignore you because you're not the boss of him!

I often wonder how animals think. Like, they don't think in English anyway.

It's not badminton as in the racquet sport but a major horse competition called Badminton Horse Trials. It started on Saturday and today's the last day. Normally it starts on the Thursday each year and finishes on the Sunday but because of the Coronation they had to move it.

one_step_closer 08-05-2023 01:39 PM

Oh. That's a bit confusing! I hope you enjoy it.

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:40 PM

He kinda looks at me and generally does actually stop!
But i think they very much know that they run the house!
I have to give them a treat before i put the shopping away, otherwise they'll get annoyed with the rustling of the bags with no food XD

Good point actually!
I wonder if they have an internal dialogue?
Though some humans don't have an internal dialogue and they see images instead. Which is weird!

not_so_insig 08-05-2023 01:42 PM

It's held in the grounds of Badminton House. Badminton House is where they invented the racquet sport Lindsay.

Pi.R^2 08-05-2023 01:46 PM

I love badminton the sport but not the sport that occurs at Badminton. I hope all the horses are ok =S

Beckie is allowed to be mean to me tbh as I properly roasted her this morning (np, I told her what I said to you about her the other day!!)

Love reading all the pet news!

Beth, good luck with the washing up :)

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:49 PM

Have just been out in my oodie, in the rain, collecting grass for the boys...at least because of the rain, no one was around to see me XD

Images of what?

not_so_insig 08-05-2023 01:52 PM

Jenna the vets check all the horses fitness each morning over the three days. Any horse not fit enough is not allowed to compete. They have lots of vets on site and the parts of the jumps collapse so any injuries are less serious for the horses now compared to the past should they fall or get injured.

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 01:56 PM

I think images of what they think? Maybe?
It's really hard to imagine when you've only ever had a talking internal dialogue!

not_so_insig 08-05-2023 01:58 PM

No rain here Beckie.

nonperson 08-05-2023 02:07 PM

Hooray for less serious injuries...

Yeah I don't know what it would be like either. It's interesting! Is it possible to have both an internal image dialogue and a talking dialogue?

Pi.R^2 08-05-2023 02:20 PM

Cacoethes 08-05-2023 02:39 PM

Less serious in horses will still be an ENORMOUS vet bill and a very long recovery. If the owners even bother with them at all

I'm not sure np!
It is certainly a very interesting topic!

nonperson 08-05-2023 02:46 PM

It is interesting!

Is anyone else's day dragging? =/
