Oh dear, we've still got cards to send.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 09:44 PM

That's come up fast!

I only sent one card and that was a couple of weeks ago so I think I'm good!

not_so_insig 21-12-2020 12:06 AM

Hopefully you are ok Beckie. Saying that I sent Lorraine's parcel and it took over 10 days to get there. Lorraine sent me an parcel and it only took an extra day to get here. I was expecting a parcel Monday and it arrived yesterday.

one_step_closer 21-12-2020 12:25 PM

Hey everyone, how are you all today?

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 01:37 PM

Hey lindsay
I'm ok.
Christmas leave is going ahead! So I am pleased

How are you?

not_so_insig 21-12-2020 01:44 PM

Yay Beckie!

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 02:16 PM

I am so happy!

How are you Dawn?

one_step_closer 21-12-2020 04:10 PM

I'm so pleased for you Beckie. I hope you have a lovely time.

Hi Dawn, how's your day going?

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 04:25 PM

Thanks Lindsay :)

Are you up to much today?

not_so_insig 21-12-2020 05:10 PM

I am ok thanks. Just watching TV so far today. Looking forward to Keeping Up Appearances on the telly tomorrow.

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 05:32 PM

That's good dawn :)

nonperson 21-12-2020 06:56 PM

Evening all.

I'm glad your leave is still going ahead, Beckie.

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 07:45 PM

Hey np

How are you?

nonperson 21-12-2020 09:22 PM

Feeling lazy but need to cook dinner and wrap presents tonight.

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 09:51 PM

Are you any good at wrapping presents?
I’m terrible at it

nonperson 21-12-2020 10:10 PM

Yeah I'm not bad at it. Kinda enjoy it too once I get going.

Cacoethes 21-12-2020 10:59 PM

You can do mine next year then! :p

nonperson 22-12-2020 01:10 AM

Hah, sure. =P

It took me the entire length of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to wrap three things. It really wasn't my finest work this year. =(

not_so_insig 22-12-2020 01:42 AM

I only had 3 things to do this year. One was Lorraine's present and it was breakable so had to have bubble wrap on it as well as wrapping paper. Lorraine didn't say it was broken when arrived to her part of Scotland so it must have been OK.

[Luna] 22-12-2020 07:44 AM

Morning loves

one_step_closer 22-12-2020 10:52 AM

Morning Luna. You were up quite early.

[Luna] 22-12-2020 10:53 AM

Yeah I woke up around 4am-ish
How are you?

one_step_closer 22-12-2020 10:57 AM

Not great but having to go to the gym with my support worker soon.

How are you?

[Luna] 22-12-2020 11:07 AM

I'm sorry you're not great. I hope it goes well at the gym.

I have an ultrasound at 11am. I've had to fast since last night and I'm so thirsty lol.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 11:25 AM

Morning guys
Nice to see you Luna

Christmas leave has been cancelled so I am upset

[Luna] 22-12-2020 12:34 PM

Oh Beckie, I’m sorry. We’re in tier 4 here so I can empathise to an extent.

Had my ultrasound, I have gallstones which is fun.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 01:41 PM

We’re in tier 4 too. It sucks

Oh no! Gallstones are awful. Are they going to do anything about it?
At least you can eat and drink again!

not_so_insig 22-12-2020 01:45 PM

I am so sorry Beckie. I am in tier 4 too.

[Luna] 22-12-2020 01:52 PM

Tier 4 is so ****. I understand why but it's still really **** :(

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 02:24 PM

Thanks Dawn

Tier 4 really is ****.
I do get why they have to do it but every other announcement has been 'lockdown starting in a week'
Why couldn't they have done that this time?!

[Luna] 22-12-2020 02:51 PM

Yeah or enforced it earlier.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 03:05 PM


not_so_insig 22-12-2020 03:49 PM

I agree that tier 4 is ****. They could have postponed it until boxing day.

[Luna] 22-12-2020 03:57 PM

I think the fact we were told we could have christmas and then it was suddenly taken away makes it feel worse.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 03:58 PM

It definitely does
Did you have any plans?

[Luna] 22-12-2020 04:05 PM

Jocelyn's working christmas day so I'm still going to see my mum and brother because they are part of our care bubble and I would struggle with having the boys alone all day but we were planning to spend christmas evening and boxing day with jocelyns family which we now can't do. I feel bad for her but she said shes not fussed.
I'm not sure whats happening with Ethan because both he and his dad currently have Covid.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 04:07 PM

That's good you can see your mum and brother still.
Shame about not being able to see Jocelyns family though.
Oh no! That's not good at all. Is he ok?

[Luna] 22-12-2020 04:09 PM

Yeah I'm lucky.

I think he's doing okay, his symptoms seem to be mild compared to his dads.

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 04:37 PM

That's good. I hope he doesn't suffer with it too badly.

We get tested for covid weekly and staff get tested twice a week so chances of any of us getting it is pretty low I would think.

yoyogirl 22-12-2020 05:03 PM

I'm so pleased my aunt and Paula doesn't have Covid 19

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 05:10 PM

Still waiting for my depot

nonperson 22-12-2020 06:29 PM

I'm in tier 4 too.

Dawn, they can't have postponed it until boxing day. Something needed to be done straight away, it couldn't wait a week, that's way too much time for things to get even worse. That said they should have predicted this and acted much earlier in which case it wouldn't have been a sudden change.


That really sucks about your leave, Beckie. I'm not seeing family or anyone now either. =/

Cacoethes 22-12-2020 06:33 PM

Sorry to hear that np

yoyogirl 22-12-2020 06:48 PM

Yeah I'm in tier 4 too

nonperson 22-12-2020 06:56 PM

RYL Christmas day party <3

tamobhuuta 22-12-2020 07:09 PM

Our grandma is too poorly to come, we don't want to risk her getting covid.

My room is ready for Christmas :)

We should totally make a Christmas party thread!!

tamobhuuta 22-12-2020 07:22 PM

Agreed. Fun times only or is support-needing ok?

[Luna] 22-12-2020 07:23 PM

There a christmas support thread already so I've made a thread for more light-hearted chat.
