Also Dawn, a bird would be the least of your worries if you were my neighbour; I play the trombone :fredgeorge:

I should def be a marriage counsellor ;p

Pi.R^2 05-09-2022 09:30 PM

How are you today Beckie after your medical adventure last night? =S

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 07:28 AM

I'm ok thanks jenna!
Doctor should be calling today hopefully

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 06-09-2022 10:18 AM

Ikr Pi!

Good morning world!

one_step_closer 06-09-2022 10:46 AM

Hi Beckie, Tamo, and everyone else who pops in.

How are you all and what are you doing today?

I hope the doctor phones at a time that suits you, Beckie.

I've got the gym group this afternoon then need to wash my hair when I get home.

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 10:57 AM

Hey guys!
I stayed in bed until 9:30!!!
Can't remember the last time i stayed in bed that late!

I haven't heard anything from the doctors which is weird.
Usually they send an email pretty much as soon as they open saying it will be triaged. Maybe they're just super busy.

Hope the gym group is ok

not_so_insig 06-09-2022 11:12 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 06-09-2022 11:12 AM

Hi osc, I hope you enjoy the gym group.

I hope you hear from the doc soon Cacoethes.

I'm seeing my spiritual director today.

tamobhuuta 06-09-2022 11:13 AM

Hi insig, how are you?

not_so_insig 06-09-2022 11:22 AM

I am ok. A bit worried because something I have ordered hasn't arrived yet. It's coming via ordinary post. The email said it could take up to 10 working days to arrive and it was ordered a week today.

tamobhuuta 06-09-2022 11:40 AM

It's frustrating waiting. Fingers crossed it arrives soon.

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 11:58 AM

I'm not sure if i hear thunder or not.
It is very grey outside

not_so_insig 06-09-2022 12:30 PM

I had thunder and lightning last night so it's possible Beckie. Plus horrendous rainfall. Are you here on your mobile phone/using data?

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 12:38 PM

Yeah i heard it last night too.

Yep. I always use my mobile phone anyway. I find it easier. I have unlimited data so i should be ok

one_step_closer 06-09-2022 03:37 PM

It's pouring here and there is supposed to be a thunderstorm but half the time they're predicted they don't happen.

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 03:45 PM

Yeah that's true lindsay

I now have tomorrow off work!
Manager just text and asked if i want it off. We have been a bit overstaffed lately! (Will be back to understaffed when the uni students all go back v soon)
And she's putting it down as holiday so i still get paid.
Not sure what I'm going to do all day though!

one_step_closer 06-09-2022 04:50 PM

Is there anything you'd like to do, like a day trip somewhere? Or things you have to catch up with at home? Make sure you do have some rest too.

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 06:04 PM

I don't really have the money for a day trip anywhere.
Nothing to catch up with at home
I booked a pilates class for the morning. But that only takes up an hour

Zurg 06-09-2022 07:10 PM

Woop, woop for day off!!!!
I Think i'd just sit and stare into space a lot. Snack a lot. Maybe take a nap. Hell, maybe even TWO naps ;-)

Said the person who gets overwhelmed and stressed by anything and everyhting, life in particular.

I am craving cake. But i don't have any cake. And the lady upstairs is making a lot of annoying noise and complaining on the phone to someone by the sound of it. I wish she'd go on a loooong vacation. A couple of years would be nice.

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 07:41 PM

I would get waaaay too bored!
Especially as i can only watch normal tv until i pay my Internet bill!
And i can't nap during the day unless something is very wrong!

Ah that is sad. Can you get cake tomorrow?
I always want cake when i have no way of getting cake.
Ugggh that sucks!
I would never move into a flat for fear of annoying upstairs neighbours!

nonperson 06-09-2022 07:42 PM

Do you have any ingredients to make a mug cake, Zurg?

Cacoethes 06-09-2022 07:54 PM

I've always wanted to make a mug cake

I have an asda essentials cheese and bean bake in the oven! I'm loving the asda essentials range tbh. The cheese and tomato pasta is delicious!

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 07:15 AM

Morning everyone

Zurg 07-09-2022 09:12 AM

Morning Beckie. How are you today???

Personally, i'd like to nurse my tiredness and go back to bed *yawns*

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 09:41 AM

Hey zurg!
I'm ok. Got to get the bus to the doctors soonish though. Booo!

Do you have much to do today?

Zurg 07-09-2022 10:00 AM

I hope the doctor Will be nice. No unwanted poking and injections!!! Though i do personally always appreciate when they have to do blood samples because they are exceptionally bad at that and it's fun to watch them struggle XD yes, i am evil like that.

Just doing laundry and going to hoover my livingroom before the nice people come with my new couch. Which i can't use atm due to someone *stares at bun-bun* taking a liking to peeing and pooping in a couch…!!!

If you get bored you're more than welcome to come by so i have an excuse to postpone hoovering!!! :D

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 10:15 AM

Yeah doctors aren't great at bloods!
I think it'll probably just be a referral to a cardiologist.
She said i could go to hospital to get seen quicker but as I'm pretty sure I'm not currently experiencing and accident nor an emergency, it seems unnecessary.

Yay new couch!
Boo to not being able to use it though!

Totally would if you lived even remotely near me!
I will be bored today no doubt.

Good news though! I have found the top of my vape so i can now use it again!
I lost it on monday. Couldn't find it ANYWHERE! Turns out it had attached itself to my house keys. It's magnetic.
Don't know why i didn't notice it when i used my keys yesterday but oh well!

tamobhuuta 07-09-2022 10:18 AM

Hi both :)

Have fun at the doctor Cacoethes.

I hope your new couch is comfy Zurg.

My plan is to have a shower and watch Doctors.

one_step_closer 07-09-2022 10:38 AM


I hope you can get to use your new couch without Mr Bunny making it all stinky, Zurg.

I hope you get on ok at the doctors, Beckie.

Sounds like a good plan, Tamo. Enjoy.

Since the gym group has finished now our group is going to a wellbeing place that is run by the same organisation for someone to tell us what it's all about and all the groups then maybe we'll have lunch. I've already looked at the groups and I'm not interested in them. Will see how it goes. It'll take up a chunk of my day and I'll have to rush some things when I get home which I hate.

not_so_insig 07-09-2022 11:15 AM

The item that I had been sent last Tuesday finally arrived today. Along with a postcard and 2 ebay purchases. Which is good as Royal Mail are on strike for the next 2 days so that means no post until Saturday.

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 11:26 AM

Thanks guys!
I had ages before my appointment.
There is a new cafe next to the doctors that has a resident dog! So i got a coffee and dog cuddles!
2.50 for a large caramel latte! That'd be like £4 in Costa!
And they were really friendly and we chatted about dogs and all sorts for the whole time.
Has made my day!

I hope it goes ok lindsay

tamobhuuta 07-09-2022 01:13 PM

I had my shower, I'm all sparkly clean.

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 01:51 PM

Well done!

one_step_closer 07-09-2022 04:16 PM

Cheaper coffee and dog cuddles sounds great, Beckie. Will you go back again? Did you get on alright at the doctors?

Well done Tamo. What are you getting up to now.

We just had lunch in the cafe, a short tour and took a photo of something that says all the groups they do. Washed my hair when I got home and think my washing has just finished so better go and put it up to dry...

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 04:25 PM

I will definitely go back again!
Yeah the doctors was fine thanks, she was incredibly thorough! Was in there for like 30 mins. She went through all my notes and sorted out and arranged a lot of things!

Sounds good lindsay
My washing is done too but cba to put it away just yet!

one_step_closer 07-09-2022 04:37 PM

Wow, a doctor giving you 30 minutes! Sounds like it was a successful appointment, I'm glad.

Does your machine actually dry your clothes enough to put them away straight from the machine?

one_step_closer 07-09-2022 04:41 PM

I bought a coconut that had been shaving so it was all smooth and there are marks so you can puncture a hole to drink the water and split it open easily. I don't know why I bought it other than I like coconut and it looked interesting.

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 04:58 PM

Yes it was! Though it does mean more appointments and tests that i don't really have time for!
She was very nice.

It varies! Sometimes it dries them completely, sometimes they are a little damp. But if i open the machine door and leave them for a bit they dry completely pretty quickly.

Oooh that sounds cool!
Where did you get it?

tamobhuuta 07-09-2022 05:43 PM

I'm intrigued osc!

I'm reading now. I also have washing to put away but that can wait.

Zurg 07-09-2022 05:43 PM

Woop, woop Lindsay :D time for piña colada!!!
Sorry, i get very enthusiastic about other people making drinks…

Couch came. Bun bun tried to devour it. So it is currently covered in a huge piece of bubblewrap which makes sitting in it feeling a bit weird….
She tried eating the bubblewrap too. I lost my temper and yelled at her and pushed her away :( i feel so bad about that. I've made sure to give her lots of cuddles afterwards and a few treats. I don't want to be a person that yells at my pets or pushes them. I wish i knew how to handle anger and tiredness. My psychologist is trying to help me but it's probably going to take quite a bit of time…

Hope you're all okay tonight. I've had dinner and trying to psyche myself up for a shower. Looking forward to a more calm day tomorrow.

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 06:09 PM

Ooooh i want a pina colada!!!

Try not to beat yourself up zurg. It's ok to get frustrated sometimes! Pets can definitely be frustrating.

I also need to shower.
But i am currently deep in a duolingo hole. I think I'm genuinely addicted!

not_so_insig 07-09-2022 07:53 PM

Hello all. I went out today and as soon as I left my flat it started hailstoning. So I got my hair very wet. I have had a shower though and washed my hair.

nonperson 07-09-2022 07:57 PM

A shaved coconut sounds so wrong. But the inside so good!

Blahria 07-09-2022 08:15 PM

Mmmm shaved coconut! Better than trying to eat a stubbly coconut?

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 08:17 PM

Me and my friend got a coconut once. I can't for the life of me remember where we got it (i think we were drunk)
We tried to open it with a screwdriver, then scissors and in the end just took a hammer to it

Blahria 07-09-2022 08:25 PM

I like the deescalation to scissors and then ramp up to hammer! Was it all the more delicious for your hard work?

I don't think I've even tried opening my own coconut, what a small life I've lived ��

Cacoethes 07-09-2022 08:39 PM

It wasn't really that tasty which was disappointing! Probably the wrong type of coconut!

It's definitely something you need to try!

Also, love your username

Blahria 07-09-2022 09:43 PM

Oh well, that's on the coconut! What a shame, may all your future coconuts be delicious.

I'll get a coconut and some elaborate tools to crack it!

Thank you! I like yours too ^-^

Cacoethes 08-09-2022 08:46 AM

Do it!

Thank you!
