morning :P

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 10:18 AM

How are you shadow?

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 10:21 AM

Morning tamo and Hazel!
How are you both?

I'm good thanks tamo!

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 10:28 AM

I am ok. My plan today is to shower. Anyone else got plans?

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 10:34 AM

I have to pick up my medication, go for a blood test and then get back in time for a psychologist appointment.
It's going to be very stressful!

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 10:42 AM

That's a lot of plans!

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 10:48 AM

I just hope I get back in time!
It's an hour on the bus so it's going to be close!

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 10:53 AM

Good luck with that...

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 11:00 AM

I *should* get back to town at around 3:05 IF the bus is on time. Then it's a 10 minute walk home. My appointment is over zoom at 3:30
So fingers crossed for no traffic :ermm:

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 11:04 AM

*crosses fingers*

shadow-light 09-08-2021 11:10 AM

i'm kind of avoiding stuff that i really shouldn't be avoiding :laugh: that's my current "plan"

though at some point today or tomorrow i may need to rethink this "plan" and be an adult...

hope buses run on time... but I guess if you do end up a few mins late you have a half decent reason at least

tamobhuuta 09-08-2021 11:27 AM

Shadow, I hope you can do the adulting. It's very difficult.

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 11:32 AM

Thanks tamo and Hazel!

Yes that's true. I will call if I'm going to be late

Adulting is hard!

shadow-light 09-08-2021 12:53 PM

adulting really is hard... I need to like hire someone to adult for me or something

Cacoethes 09-08-2021 01:21 PM

I'd be up for that service!

The blood test place is really busy :ermm:

not_so_insig 09-08-2021 08:11 PM

Quiet in here today.

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 09:56 AM

Morning everyone!

shadow-light 10-08-2021 10:35 AM


Cacoethes 10-08-2021 11:06 AM

Hello Hazel!
How are you?

shadow-light 10-08-2021 11:14 AM

still avoiding adulting :laugh:

I'm oddly tired today, for no reason, and cant seem to concentrate on anything. It is annoying

how are you?

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 11:28 AM


Hmm. That does sound annoying!
Dose up on coffee?

I'm ok thanks!
Though annoyed I have to get a train and a bus for my second blood test of the week!
I wanted to get them both done yesterday but apparently that couldn't happen :plain:
So I'm having to go to the next county. Which tbf is only 15 mins on the train but it still makes no sense!

tamobhuuta 10-08-2021 11:39 AM

Morning shadow, morning Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 11:40 AM

Morning tamo!
How are you?

one_step_closer 10-08-2021 11:45 AM

Morning everyone, I hope you're all well.

I hope you get everything done today Beckie.

I'm going to the gym with my support worker and another service user. Can't really be bothered but that's only because I hate the treadmill but it's the only machine that my knees can cope with.

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 11:52 AM

Hey lindsay!

Thanks :)
My train is running 5 mins late :plain:

I hope it goes ok.
I am also not a fan of the treadmill

tamobhuuta 10-08-2021 11:52 AM

It's good to get out osc, I hope it's helpful.

I am ok. I've got my godmother coming round this afternoon. It's lovely weather here so we might sit in the garden.

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 12:01 PM

Sounds good

shadow-light 10-08-2021 12:13 PM

i like the treadmil, i keep burning out the motors on mine though which is getting annoying :laugh:

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 12:15 PM

Yes I've seen your amazing charity runs on treadmills!

shadow-light 10-08-2021 12:33 PM

my current treadmill is sat in the corner dead... I'm attempting to save up for a new one, but a new new one this time with like a warenty and stuff

running in th emountains is far more fun, but i cant get to the mountains anymore so treadmil is best i can do

shadow-light 10-08-2021 12:34 PM

also, having to get a train for a blood test sounds rediculous to me...

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 12:57 PM

It is ridiculous!
My gp surgery still isn't doing blood tests for some reason.

not_so_insig 10-08-2021 02:19 PM

Afternoon all. I am waiting for my tesco shopping order to come.

Cacoethes 10-08-2021 02:41 PM

Hi dawn

I'm finally back home

not_so_insig 10-08-2021 02:53 PM

My tesco shopping order is here. Just gotta put everything away now. No substitutions which is good.

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 10:15 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 11-08-2021 11:32 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 11:58 AM

Morning! Nearly afternoon!
I'm good thanks!
How are you?

one_step_closer 11-08-2021 12:11 PM

Afternoon all, have you got much on today?

tamobhuuta 11-08-2021 12:20 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

I am ok. I got up even later because I drank the wine last night.

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 12:28 PM

Hello lindsay!
How are you?

I have no plans!
Just enjoying a day to myself which I haven't had for a week or so!
How about you?

not_so_insig 11-08-2021 12:44 PM

Hello all. I got bothered by a door to door salesman for a electric company. He asked me if I wanted to change from an ordinary meter to a pay as you go meter. Umm no because nobody has time to go to the shops for credit. Plus as everyone knows they're more expensive.

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 01:05 PM

I have a pay as you go meter

one_step_closer 11-08-2021 04:09 PM

I thought there was only pay as you go or direct debit. I use pay as you go and use an online account to top up when my smart meter tells me to. Direct debit monthly is meant to be cheaper though but I can't be bothered changing.

not_so_insig 11-08-2021 04:24 PM

Plus I don't want a smart meter because of paranoia reasons. Thankfully I got rid of him but it was annoying af being bothered. I thought door to door salesman of electricity companies had been banned?

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 04:40 PM

I need to upgrade to a smart meter really.
But I'm in asda so much it's no issue to top up while I'm there
I haven't had to top up since October though thanks to the warm home discount!

one_step_closer 11-08-2021 05:13 PM

I had warm home discount then someone talked me into changing to their company and I lost the warm home discount.

Cacoethes 11-08-2021 05:19 PM

That really sucks. The warm home discount is so helpful

nonperson 11-08-2021 06:14 PM

Evening folks.

I have direct debit for electricity and pay as you go for gas, just to make things unhelpfully inconsistent..!
