Have you tried speaking to the citizens advice bureau. I think they help with benefit forms? Not sure on that though.

It really does suck!

tamobhuuta 25-03-2021 12:08 PM

Hi everyone. I had to take PRN to get to sleep.

Cacoethes 25-03-2021 12:10 PM

I did too. Two lots of it! It did not work

ye, i've had an email conversation with CAB this morning. I am posting the form to them with some notes, then they will phone me and we will do the form over the phone. Not great as I struggle with phones, but only option

Cacoethes 25-03-2021 03:09 PM

Not ideal but at least you’re getting some help with it.

shadow-light 25-03-2021 03:16 PM

does mean i need to phone the benefit types tomorrow and ask for an extention though which i'm not looking forward to... hopefully though they will understand that the lack of face to face appointments makes things take longer

Cacoethes 25-03-2021 04:03 PM

Fingers crossed you get a nice person!

not_so_insig 25-03-2021 04:25 PM

Hello all. I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road.

tamobhuuta 25-03-2021 04:34 PM

That sounds nice insig, did it go ok?

I'm having tea, for a change... :p

not_so_insig 25-03-2021 05:04 PM

It went ok though there's a slight cold breeze.

I have pizza in the oven.

tamobhuuta 25-03-2021 05:52 PM

What flavour?

not_so_insig 25-03-2021 06:50 PM

I had meat feast. Wasn't bad.

tamobhuuta 25-03-2021 07:14 PM

I've never had that. Before I went veggie I liked Hawaiian.

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 11:33 AM

Am I first up?

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 11:35 AM

First to post in the thread this morning tamo!
I've been up for a while
Had a blood test, had a fancy coffee from the OT group, had vitals done and meds.
I want to get dressed and put washing on but there is a meeting in the room my stuff is in

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 11:42 AM

When you say fancy coffee?

I should put some washing on. I might even shower.

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 12:04 PM

It was a latte from one of those nespresso type machines

Showering would be a good task for the day

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 12:25 PM

Nice. L has one of those but they're too strong for me.

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 12:35 PM

It was quite strong but still better than instant coffee!

shadow-light 26-03-2021 12:36 PM


tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 12:37 PM

I had an instant coffee when I got up, now I've had 2 teas as well. My dad made a pot.

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 12:37 PM

Hi shadow how are you?

shadow-light 26-03-2021 12:40 PM

Ok I think, just had a phone assessment with EIP. They are referring me back to CMHT :laugh: I spend my life on referral lists

I've never tried a nespresso machine coffee, do they taste different to like instant or french press types?

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 01:00 PM

What a pain Hazel! Hopefully they'll take you on and it won't be too long of a wait.

They taste very different!

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:03 PM

i don't really drink much coffee, but when I do I'm really picky with it. To be honest my being picky with it may be part of why I don't drink it much

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:05 PM

i'm more a herbal tea type

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 01:07 PM

I hope the CMHT are more helpful.

I've plans to go for a walk later. But bad news, it's Friday so no Doctors on TV.

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:11 PM

hopefully, i'm just a bit sick of being passed aroung at this point... also got an awful headache now, always get a headache after phonecalls

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 01:12 PM

I'm not a fan of herbal tea.

I can imagine you're sick of it Hazel! It's not good!

Walk sounds good.
I want to go out for the next cigarette break at 1:30. Hopefully its stopped raining by then

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:13 PM

i basically live on ginger tea :laugh: both because I like ginger and it also helps with my chronic reflux issues. as a rule I love anything with ginger in...

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 01:16 PM

I like gingerbread :p

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 01:25 PM

Gingerbread is yummy, I think at Christmas Costs did a gingerbread latte. Also I like pukka night tea.

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 01:25 PM

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:33 PM

ginger bread latte's are good, though pumpkin spice wins

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 01:37 PM

Yes the ginger bread lattes were great!

I don’t think I’ve every tried a pumpkin spice one

shadow-light 26-03-2021 01:40 PM

pumpkin spice may possibly be the only flabvour I like more than ginger

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 01:46 PM

Pumpkin spice sounds good.

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 02:13 PM

I’d probably like it because I do enjoy a bit of pumpkin!

nonperson 26-03-2021 02:27 PM

Did someone say pumpkins? >.>

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 02:37 PM

When we were little we used to carve pumpkins at Halloween but I can't remember what we did with the insides.

shadow-light 26-03-2021 02:50 PM

my mum used to bin the insides of pumpkins :ermm:

as soon as i moved out i started cllecting the insides to make soup. Unfortunately the boyfriend is allergic to pumpkin so not had a halloween pumpkin or pumpkin soup for a few years now

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 03:00 PM

What a waste of good pumpkin guts!

Ah that’s a shame

tamobhuuta 26-03-2021 03:03 PM

That's a shame shadow.

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 03:37 PM

I've put my washing on.
Now watching the latest series of taskmaster.
Np, come back and watch it so we can talk about it!

shadow-light 26-03-2021 03:43 PM

Which series you watching? Love taskmaster, one of the very few TV things I watch

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 03:47 PM

Oooh another person who loves taskmaster!
I'm watching the latest series that is on on Thursdays
Watching it on catchup.

not_so_insig 26-03-2021 06:08 PM

I have been for my coronavirus jab before. It didn't hurt.

nonperson 26-03-2021 07:25 PM

I totally forgot Taskmaster was on yesterday and probably fell asleep before then anyway. Will try to catch up this weekend.

not_so_insig 26-03-2021 08:08 PM

Harry Potter is on next Friday on itv2.

Cacoethes 26-03-2021 08:22 PM

Yes do np!
