Omg omg =P

Pi.R^2 19-07-2022 09:11 PM

This is an outrage, we’ve not got any rain forecast at all in the next week and our lightning this afternoon failed to arrive. I might post report the weather.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 09:15 PM

Sadly i think it was only the few drops :'(
I think I *might* have just heard thunder though

Jenna, i fully support your post reporting the weather

Pi.R^2 19-07-2022 10:44 PM

Oh no, what anticlimactic rain! Thank you for your approval of my post-reporting :P

I hope everyone manages to be cool enough to sleep OK tonight. Down to 24 degrees here which is positively arctic at this point! Hopefully my bedroom has cooled down a bit as I'm off to bed now.

Cacoethes 20-07-2022 07:28 AM

Morning everyone!

Very cloudy here today

not_so_insig 20-07-2022 10:24 AM

Morning all. It's only 17 degrees here atm.

one_step_closer 20-07-2022 11:23 AM

Morning everyone, it's certainly cooler today. There was a cool breeze when I was out earlier and the sun isn't as strong. Think it's meant to get warmer though. Yesterday there was just a drizzle of rain for about 5 seconds.

What is everyone doing today?

tamobhuuta 20-07-2022 12:49 PM

We got proper rain here yesterday evening but today it's sunny again, cooler. I'm wearing a hoodie indoors and I don't know if I'll need it outside yet.

nonperson 20-07-2022 03:39 PM

It's been cloudy all day. Lovely. Definitely not hoodie weather inside or out though. Can't wait for autumn and hoodies.

one_step_closer 20-07-2022 04:40 PM

It was good weather for the walking group today. Did anyone else see somewhere that we're meant to have two really hot days next week too?

Cacoethes 20-07-2022 04:53 PM

Afternoon guys!

I left work early because i wasn't feeling well.
Bus didn't turn up so got another bus (which takes LOADS longer because it goes round the whole town) and then i passed out on the way home *thumbs up emoji*
But I'm home now and it's all good!

nonperson 20-07-2022 06:59 PM

Passed out? o.o

Cacoethes 20-07-2022 07:10 PM

Yeah. Probably due to heat and sleep issues.
I'm fine now!

not_so_insig 20-07-2022 07:22 PM

Were you in the street Beckie or on the bus when you passed out?

Cacoethes 20-07-2022 07:26 PM

In the street. So embarrassing.

not_so_insig 20-07-2022 07:56 PM

Hope you're better now Beckie.

Cacoethes 20-07-2022 08:57 PM

I am thanks.
Though it appears i have injured my ankle which sucks!

How is everyone this evening?

not_so_insig 21-07-2022 06:52 AM

Morning all. I beat Beckie :laugh:

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 08:06 AM

Haha!
You did!
I had a lie in today. 10 to 8!
I am pleased. I was tired.

How are you?

Zurg 21-07-2022 08:30 AM

Morning Dawn and Beckie.

It's going to be ridiculously hot here today and i have a psychologist appointment and a birthday to attend o_o
I already feel like i'm dying and haven't even managed to wrap the birthday present. I hope wee baby Junie won't remember her first birthday and be traumatised by unwrapped presents!!!

How are you both??

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 08:36 AM

Hey zurg!
Sounds like it's your turn for the unbearable weather!
Only meant to get up to 23 today

I hope the appointment and birthday go ok!
I'm sure an unwrapped present won't cause *too* much trauma!

I'm ok thanks!
Just chilling atm

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 10:14 AM

Morning all.

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 10:19 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

not_so_insig 21-07-2022 10:33 AM

If they're anything like my first cousin once removed they will be more interested in the box zurg than the fact it's unwrapped.

not_so_insig 21-07-2022 10:42 AM

Also my Christmas bauble arrived today. I ordered it on Monday. When it was extremely hot. Because that's the logical thing to do.

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 10:51 AM

Absolutely insig!

I'm just enjoying the cooler weather. I had to get up in the night for my duvet!

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 10:55 AM

Yep i slept under the covers last night!

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 01:33 PM

Turns out, the anti seizure med I'm now on also helps with treatment resistant schizophrenia - no wonder I feel better :)

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 01:39 PM

Which med?
I'm on 2 seizure meds which are also mood stabilisers and they help with things

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 01:45 PM

Topiramate. I started on lamotrogine but that did nothing. Which are you on?

I spoke to the neurologist earlier and she warned me to drink lots or risk kidney stones. All I know about kidney stones is that they are very painful.

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 01:48 PM

Ah yeah i was on topiramate once. Didn't do anything for me though.
I'm on lamotrigine and carbamazepine.

Most medication you need to keep hydrated on i think

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 02:03 PM

It's interesting how people's brains act differently.
I hope this improvement lasts. The past month has been lovely.

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 02:11 PM

It is indeed

Yes it's always nice when symptoms f off for a bit

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 02:42 PM

What are you up to?

one_step_closer 21-07-2022 02:43 PM

I'm glad you're doing better, Tamo. :-D

I hope you don't get too hot doing all your things today Kat.

How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 02:43 PM

Not a lot.
Had a phone call from my cpn.
Got taekwando later and then beatz.
Also need to put washing away and shower.
For now I'm just watching criminal minds

How about you?

Ninja post lindsay!
My day is going fine thanks. You?

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 02:47 PM

Hi osc :) how are you? Up to much?

That sounds a lot to me Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 02:50 PM

I suppose it is a few things!
I like to be busy

one_step_closer 21-07-2022 02:52 PM

Beckie never seems to realise when she's done/doing a lot! It can be good to be busy but don't be doing too much though or I will give you a row!

I managed to get through to the ESA people after a long time being on hold. They just said they have no update and the debt management people will be in touch with me when they've figured out how much I owe.

tamobhuuta 21-07-2022 02:59 PM

Waiting for that must suck :( but well done for staying on hold!

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 03:08 PM

I guess Because when I'm at work i am doing stuff constantly, serving customers, putting away glasses, doing tickets, clearing the bar and garden and restocking stuff that when i have time to sit and watch TV during the day, it feels like i don't have much to do!

Don't worry, i am trying to find time to chill too!

Well done for persevering with it lindsay
Must be so anxiety provoking.

Zurg 21-07-2022 04:32 PM

Yay Lindsay!!! I find the longer they keep me on hold, the more pissed and determined i become to get through and speak to an actual person ;-)
Well done for persevering!!!! Treat yourself to a coffee and cake!!!!

You were right Dawn, the box was just as exciting as the actual present :D Man, i love 1-year olds!!!! She kept grabbing the box and showing it to me (i Think she liked it was a lot of different colours).

I came home a few hours ago. Crashed on the couch, fed the birdies and made a phone call and then headed right to the shower. This heat can go and **** off now!!!

Also, hi Tamo *waves* it makes me happy to hear you're feeling better :-)

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 04:49 PM

I'm glad she liked the present!

one_step_closer 21-07-2022 05:12 PM

Chill time is as important as being busy Beckie. I hope you're getting a good balance.

I was determined to stay on hold because before that they asked loads of automated questions and I was not going to hang up and have to go through all that again if I phoned another time. The word 'debt' scares me, I'm worried.

I'm glad your box was a hit Kat! Did she like what was in the box if she ever got over the box itself? :laugh: Are you finding ways to cool off?

Zurg 21-07-2022 05:41 PM

Yeah, Lindsay she did like the actual present too ;-)
It was a machine, looking like a dinosaur, that can blow lots of bubbles if you fill it with soapy, bubble water :D

Oddly enough, i feel a lot more bothered by the heat now that i am sitting down…. Rude!!!

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 06:21 PM

True lindsay!
I think i have a good balance!

The automated questions do suck.

I am now officially a student of taekwando!
Instructor said we should be ready for first grading in 9 weeks!

Zurg 21-07-2022 07:04 PM

Woah!!! Beckie!!! You can kick my ass now O_O
(Kind of glad that there's a minor bit of water between us….!!!)

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 07:05 PM

Haha!
Not quite yet XD
And i totally wouldn't kick your ass anyway i like you too much :-D

Zurg 21-07-2022 07:09 PM

Quite a few people have, upon meeting me in person, had a subsequent desire to kick my ass… so never rule anything out!!!

Also, being female means i fight like a girl!!! I kick, bite, punch and pinch!!! Watch out. The loons are out here!!!

Cacoethes 21-07-2022 07:22 PM

Same tbh! XD

So do i at the momemt!
