Hi Dawn. How is your day going?

Cacoethes 08-06-2022 06:21 PM

hey everyone!
I got to finish 55 mins early :-D
it was VERY slow today!

not_so_insig 08-06-2022 08:24 PM

I managed to phone someone before.

Cacoethes 08-06-2022 08:25 PM

thats good

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 05:40 AM

morning everyone!|

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 09:17 AM

My phone internet is working again!
It's frustratingly slow but it works!

tamobhuuta 09-06-2022 11:35 AM

Hi Cacoethes. I'm glad you are getting some Internet. How are you?

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 11:38 AM

thanks :)

bit anxious about my nurse appointment later but otherwise ok! quite tired. not sure if it's because i got up at 5am or because of the promethazine!

how are you?

tamobhuuta 09-06-2022 11:42 AM

I am ok. Had some PRN last night and slept really well.

I'm planning to finish Fantastic Beasts today.

I hope your appointment is ok

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 11:49 AM

that's good

which one?

thank you :)

tamobhuuta 09-06-2022 11:51 AM

The 1st one. For some reason I watched the 2nd one 1st.....

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 11:55 AM

fair enough!
have you seen the new one yet?

tamobhuuta 09-06-2022 01:36 PM

Yeah in the cinema, it was great but I missed Johnny Depp

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 01:39 PM

yeah so did I

nearly time to leave for the bus.

one_step_closer 09-06-2022 01:52 PM

I hope your appointment goes/has gone well, Beckie.

Have you finished your Fantastic Beasts marathon, Tamo?

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 02:03 PM

Thanks Lindsay
It's not until 2:40 But have to get the bus because it's in the next town, not my doctors.

What have you been up to?

one_step_closer 09-06-2022 02:08 PM

Do you mind the travelling?

I've just been doing some housework. Needing to try to reply to a pen pal letter but I can't right now because Crookshanks is on my lap.

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 03:15 PM

It's a bit annoying seeing as the appointment was only about 10 minutes long!
And I have to wait ages for the bus home.
But I have a bus pass so at least it's free!

That's good!
Aww! Can't move a sleeping animal!

tamobhuuta 09-06-2022 03:16 PM

Not yet, my sister needed the telly.

I hope the travelling and appointment go/went smoothly.

I hate having to push the mog off my lap.

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 03:33 PM

Thanks tamo
The appointment was ok and bus should be here any minute now

one_step_closer 09-06-2022 04:56 PM

I'm glad your appointment went ok Beckie. I does sound annoying having to have to travel to a short appointment. I hope your bus was on time at least.

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 05:03 PM

thanks lindsay
the bus was on time luckily!
though before my bus came, a school bus pulled up and a load of teenagers yelled at me :eyeroll:
it was only 'why is your hair that colour?' and 'stop vaping it's bad for you'
it was said in an aggressive tone but i didn't really care. just teenagers being idiots, as most of them are!

one_step_closer 09-06-2022 05:07 PM

I hate groups of teenagers.

What are you doing this evening?

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 05:11 PM

yeah they're annoying

nothing really!
quite tired
maybe because i was up at 5am, maybe because i took a promethazine.
who knows?!


one_step_closer 09-06-2022 05:15 PM

Take it easy then and head to bed when you're ready. It's annoying when things are complicated with your sleep.

I'm just going to read then watch some TV.

Cacoethes 09-06-2022 05:19 PM

will do!

I've been trying to call my dentist.
need to find out whether i can get help with dental costs.
otherwise i'll have to cancel tomorrow's appointment

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 07:18 AM

morning everyone!
had a lie in today! got up just before 7am

tamobhuuta 10-06-2022 10:25 AM

Hi :) did you find out about the dentist?

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 10:27 AM

yeah i eventually got through this morning
i ended up just cancelling because i just can't deal with it all today
too stressed
i rescheduled to 1st September

how are you?

tamobhuuta 10-06-2022 10:37 AM

I'm ok, my task for the day is to shower.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 10:42 AM

I've already done my tasks for the day. which was just asda. lol
my neighbour is here to clean.
very much needed as the house is a mess!
and she's done my outside windows and door too. they were also a mess (spider webs with leaves and stuff caught in them, bird poo on the window)
lucky to have her!
oh and also waiting for e-on to reply. i topped up a further 40 on the gas and it's all gone on a debt i don't have, just like the 50 i topped up last week. stressful

tamobhuuta 10-06-2022 10:55 AM

I'm glad you're getting a clean house.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 11:02 AM

thanks :)
always nice to have a clean house

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 11:46 AM

Morning everyone. I hope you all have a good day. I hope you can sort out things with eon, Beckie. It's getting kind of ridiculous.

I hope you manage to shower, Tamo. What will you do for the rest of your day?

I've been to a local place to look in their charity shops for books. I got a couple and some Gold Bar biscuits from Poundland. They are tiny! Not like I remember them from before.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 11:50 AM

morning lindsay!

the e-on thing is completely ridiculous!

sounds like a successful day so far!
gold bars are awesome!

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 11:52 AM

I'll keep my brain fingers crossed for you. Are you doing much with the rest of your day?

It's in my to do list to reply to a pen pal but it might be too much of a task right now.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 11:57 AM

thank you!
not really. got someone coming to pick up some shoes I've sold at 2pm.
that's about it!

that does sound like it requires a lot of concentration

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 12:00 PM

Have you got easy things to occupy yourself with though?

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 12:02 PM

i've been listening to music all morning
my cpn is meant to be calling at some point
going to try and read a bit more

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 12:04 PM

Sounds good. I hope your CPN phone call happens and it goes ok. What music have you been listening to? Do you have a book started?

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 12:07 PM

the doctor just wanted someone to check in after the appointment i had.
not really sure what to say but i think the promethazine has helped
just been listening to a random playlist.
i do! been reading 1984 by George Orwell.
it's my favourite book, though a difficult read at times

tamobhuuta 10-06-2022 01:13 PM

What's a gold bar?

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 01:46 PM

A Gold Bar is a biscuit with caramel round it but the texture of chocolate.

I've never read 1984, sounds like a hard book to read.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 02:00 PM

it is a hard book to read!
good though

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 02:08 PM

I just avoid those kinds of book! My brother reads that sort of stuff when he's able.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 02:10 PM

tbh last time i read it, it triggered off a whole load of delusions!
but i was unmedicated then so hopefully that won't happen again!

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 02:12 PM

It's a bit risky reading that though, even though you're taking meds now. It's easy to get triggered by things even when you're doing better. I think you should try a more light hearted book. Or you'll make me worry about you. There are plenty of other books out there.

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 02:32 PM

yeah that's true lindsay

Cacoethes 10-06-2022 02:39 PM

oh and my neighbour found the earring i lost a few weeks ago!
it's gold and the pair cost 50 (got them for christmas) so obviously can't afford to replace them.
so pleased! i had hunted everywhere for it! was in the bathroom on my hands and knees for ages!
turns out it had somehow got into the tiny space between the wall/skirting board bit next to the bath! don't know how she got it out of there!

one_step_closer 10-06-2022 04:44 PM

Wow, that was a lucky find. Your neighbour is a hero! Is there anything she can't do? :laugh:

Please do think about what you're reading though, honestly. If you like you can choose a book you'd like to try and I'll send you it as a gift.
