I've just flea'd him so maybe it was that? I'm paranoid hes got fleas and I haven't noticed and I'm a terrible cat mum.

Its now mandatory for everyone who works in nhs healthcare and omg its dull I agree. Sadly there seems to be no quick way to do it.

I've stopped for lunch though- had some soup. Going to try and force myself to do some more on decontamination before I run out the door screaming.

nonperson 09-03-2019 02:24 PM

I actually flea'd Geordi a couple of days ago too and he has been quieter since then so maybe it is that.

I always feel like I'm a bad cat mum when it comes to fleas and worms... I'm sure you're doing just fine, it's natural to worry and just shows you care a lot about him. =)

Breaking it up sounds like a good idea. Give yourself a set amount to work to get through today or something so it's not too much and then it'll feel good when you complete it.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 02:26 PM

thanks np, thats reassuring

whatre you up to today?

Ive run out of steam since I stopped for lunch

nonperson 09-03-2019 02:30 PM

Nothing much really. Put the guest bedroom back to normal and need to do some washing up and boring stuff like that and the dreaded food shop.

Ah that happens to me too. But it's always better to stop for a break than to force yourself to keep going and get stressed about it.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 02:43 PM

Boring but necessary stuff.

Yeah true. Not sure forcing myself to go out will be any better though either? Might just go to the corner shop in a bit and buy some snacks and bread.

nonperson 09-03-2019 02:46 PM

Do you have to go out or is it just snacks and bread that you need?

chinahorse 09-03-2019 02:48 PM

I do need to get a birthday present but its not until the 18th so I have time.

nonperson 09-03-2019 02:51 PM

Ah not urgent then. Maybe see how you feel later?

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 03:42 PM

Afternoon everyone.

nonperson 09-03-2019 03:51 PM

Hey Lindsay. How's your day going?

chinahorse 09-03-2019 04:17 PM

Afternoon lindsay. How're you?

I de idea to have a nap instead of do anything useful. Oops.

nonperson 09-03-2019 04:35 PM

Naps are useful too.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 04:36 PM

Sometimes. Still got a headache but at least I no longer feel sick.

nonperson 09-03-2019 04:38 PM

Sounds like it was a much needed nap then.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 04:43 PM

Yep I suppose it was!

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 07:04 PM

Hey guys

chinahorse 09-03-2019 07:09 PM

Evening. How're you doing? How's your day been?

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 07:12 PM

Hello again. There was a proper hailstorm here with thunder and lightning.

What are you all doing this evening?

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 07:29 PM

Day has been good thanks!
Soooo much walking
Where my mum lives is somehow sheltered from all the wind

Im just waiting for casualty!

How are you guys?

chinahorse 09-03-2019 07:32 PM

Eeek hail storms are noisy.

Busy day again beckie- you and your casualty lol.

I'm slowly doing some work for my course. Have completed 1 lesson and the associated test questions and other thing which is hard to explain.

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 07:58 PM

I'm glad you had a nice day Beckie. Casualty is on at a weird time for my schedule but I do want to watch it tonight!

That sounds like quite a bit you've done there Lillie.

I've wasted too much time looking for the official fidget cubes and feeling sad that all the designs aren't sold in the UK.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:04 PM

What time is it on at?

Oh that sucks- can you not get one on amazon?

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:08 PM

I didn't know there was a thing as official fidget cubes.

Need to get off my bum and go shower and shopping. Ugh.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:09 PM

You can do it np! I believe in you.

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:17 PM

Thanks Lillie. I just want to crawl away and hide under a rock though... x.x

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:19 PM

It's on at 8.40.

Argos are having a sale on fidget cubes but they give you a random one. I'm tempted to go into the shop and ask them to show me which ones they have and then buy all the nice ones. On the website they only show pictures of the first generation ones but I got another one today and it was a second generation one. I'm so sad.

The Zuru fidget cubes by Antsy Labs are the official ones and they are good quality.

Go NP! What's first, shower or shopping? Hiding under a rock could come later.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:21 PM

Hiding under a rock is no good for humans though.

Lindsay they have editions?! Didnt know it was such a complex thing to buy!

I don't any any red sauce :(

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:23 PM

Is red sauce essential for food tonight?

They're really just different designs. Although the first generation ones are much quieter to use than the ones that come after them.

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:24 PM

Do they fit in a pocket? I'm always fiddling with stuff in my pockets.

Shower first as I'm really in desperate need of one...

I think I should rephrase and say that I don't want to come out from the rock I've been underneath for the last two days.

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:27 PM

Oh my goodness... they do Marvel fidget cubes!! Want want want.

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 08:29 PM

The fidget cubes look really good

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:31 PM

Yes they are pocket sized, I always have one in my pocket.

Is Wonder Women Marvel? (I have no idea) I have ordered that one from eBay.

This is my collection at the moment.

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:31 PM

red sauce is essential for chips yes. Ive just had to have them without :'(

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:32 PM

Oh no. Better put that on your shopping list. Did you have salt?

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:33 PM

Wonder Woman is DC but still cool.

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:33 PM

Knew I'd get that wrong!

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:34 PM

I had salt and vinegar which was ok but still.

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:35 PM

Chips are too plain/dryish but I don't mean dry, without sauce.

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:38 PM

I had to Google and check! ;-)

Mayo with chips for me... or it would be if I had any chips.

one_step_closer 09-03-2019 08:39 PM

Mayo with chips is yum too.

You should always have a bag of chips in your freezer!

chinahorse 09-03-2019 08:39 PM

I know what you mean lindsay.

Motivation to go out and get some np?

nonperson 09-03-2019 08:48 PM

I eat too many of them if they're in the freezer...

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 08:55 PM

Love mayo with chips!

I usually make my own chips

Eska 09-03-2019 09:08 PM

Evening everyone

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 09:13 PM

Hey eska

chinahorse 09-03-2019 09:36 PM

Hey eska how's you?

Cacoethes 09-03-2019 09:48 PM

Casualty is on :-D

Eska 09-03-2019 10:46 PM

I've been better.

Ooh, how was Casualty?

chinahorse 10-03-2019 02:16 AM

Why can I ever sleep all the way through the night?!

nonperson 10-03-2019 02:36 AM

I'm awake too. Haven't actually been asleep yet though. =/
