Zurg 22-11-2022 10:37 AM

I'm a bit unsure. Things inside my head feel quite chaotic atm.
But at least i'm inside. It's really, really cold outside today and there is a brisk wind.

Are you doing anything fun today?

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 10:43 AM

I hope your day improves!
It's chilly here too!

I have to clean out the piggies, then pilates and glow beatz.
The piggies have the zoomies at the moment! So adorable!

tamobhuuta 22-11-2022 11:01 AM

Hi guys. I *think* I have ward rounds today but you can never be sure! My friend R is definitely visiting though :)

one_step_closer 22-11-2022 11:47 AM

Morning everyone.

I'm sorry you're not feeling so great, Kat. Wrap up warm and take very good care of yourself.

Hope your day goes well, Beckie. I'm sure the fluffies will ensure that you have a good day.

If you have your ward round I hope it goes well, Tamo. Enjoy your visit. :-)

It's cold here too and it's just got misty. I have the gym group at 1pm. When I was out with my friend yesterday we bought jewelled head bands which we're going to wear to the gym group to pretend we're princesses and can't be told what to do. They're also going to make us have super powers to do all the exercises easily.

tamobhuuta 22-11-2022 12:05 PM

Magic headbands are an awesome idea.

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 12:18 PM

Yeah they're being adorable!
I've just done a big clean out. They were easier to catch this time! Pippin didn't even squeak! And they're not sulking this time either.

Love the idea of the headbands!!

Elmer 22-11-2022 01:40 PM

Those headbands sound like so much fun! Are they like alice bands or the stretchy ones?

How old are your Guinea pigs Beckie? I had my sister's piggies living in my bathroom for a year, I do miss them and their weird ways. (The bathroom is massive and gets loads of light because the person who lived here before had accessibility needs and converted a bedroom - they had this big old double decker cage/run thing)

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 02:09 PM

They are 7 months!
A bathroom is an odd place to keep guinea pigs! Lol!
Think I'd feel weird showering in front of them XD
Double decker cage sounds awesome!

Elmer 22-11-2022 02:13 PM

Aww, babies still then

Yes it was very very surreal to start with! It was the best place though - lots of light and safe to run around in when we brought them out to play. And the door was shut so the cats were always a safe distance away.
One of them looked a lot like one of yours actually

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 02:22 PM

Sounds like a great room for them!
Aww sweet! Which one? Ginger or Tricolour?

Merry has just let out the biggest fart! Honestly sounded like a human fart! Quite shocked really!

Elmer 22-11-2022 02:30 PM

The tricolour one. I always thought it was only female cats that could be those colours until I met him.

Hahaha, it's so alarming when animals do human sized farts :')

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 02:43 PM

I absolutely love the colours!
I saw a pic on one of my guinea pig groups of a lilac colour guinea pig! So so beautiful!

I read that they can fart but I did NOT expect it to be that loud! XD

tamobhuuta 22-11-2022 03:15 PM

I saw my friend R :)

one_step_closer 22-11-2022 04:46 PM

I come here for some decent conversation and you're talking about farts :laugh: Joking. Crookshanks never does loud farts. How is it even possible for a tiny guinea pig to fart as loud as a human?! It reminds me of a time when my brother was really young and he was having a nap and he farted and it woke him up. It was a huge one and he tried to deny it!

The headbands were metal, gold in colour with multicoloured stone things. They allowed us to perform better in the gym.

Lilac guinea pig sounds so pretty.

Did you enjoy seeing your friend, Tamo? It's great that you have so many people there for you.

Zurg 22-11-2022 04:48 PM

I hope it was nice, Tamo :)

Omg Lindsay!!! I need to wear a jeweled headband at every appointment with my support worker!!! Mwuahahahaaaa!!!! Forget about cooperation!!!! If i take any dislike to any of his suggestions i shall point to my headband and scream 'off with his head!!!!'

Guinea pigs are awesome and not naughty like bunnies. Except towards each other. I only ever had females and sometimes the dominating one would muffle around and grund and hump the other one o_o the first time i saw this i wasn't sure whether to find it hilarious or very alarming XD

one_step_closer 22-11-2022 04:59 PM

You should definitely do that Zurg, the power in the headbands was immense!

At some point when my other cat was alive he would get on his brothers back and make sexy movements. It did eventually stop. My current cat doesn't look cute when he's 'making biscuits' because he also thrusts while he's doing it.

one_step_closer 22-11-2022 05:02 PM

Oh, Beckie, wherever you are. I did look at the veggie stuff in Asda but most of it was gone. I got a sweet potato lasagne and have just had it for my dinner. It was tasty but not what I was expecting. What other things do you get? I might get a delivery to try some new stuff.

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 06:16 PM

I don't know how it was possible! Which is why i was so shocked!
Haha! Sounds like something one of my brothers would have done!

Pippin started off humping Merry when they first got here. Just establishing dominance! It stopped pretty quickly though once they'd got things sorted.

I got home and picked up the bowls to give them some pellets. Pippin started wheeking and running about. Put them down and he was thoroughly unimpressed at just being given pellets and stood on his hind legs and front paws against the cage.....such a chonk.

Yeah the veggie range is very popular!
I like the halloumi, red pepper and avocado bakes, the vegan pizza (but asdas own, I'm not a fan of the other ones) the plant based sausage rolls are good too! There are more but can't remember them lol!

Does that mean I NEVER visited you in a whole year?? Because I never saw guinea pigs in your bathroom.

tamo, glad you got to see your friend :)

Lindsay, those headbands sounds awesome, although I'm tempted to start drama by saying that I would call them hairbands :P

Beckie, your guinea pigs sound so cute!

Also all this talk of that sweet potato lasagne makes me so jealous!! Maybe I'll google a vegan recipe!

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 08:47 PM

They are super cute!

You should!
I much prefer sweet potatoes to regular potatoes tbh
Much harder to chop though!
Don't even get me started on trying to cut butternut squash!

Cacoethes 23-11-2022 07:58 AM

Morning everyone!

It is raining. Again!

one_step_closer 23-11-2022 01:06 PM

Afternoon. Just light rain here. What are you getting up to today, Beckie?

tamobhuuta 23-11-2022 05:52 PM

Hi guys, how have your days been?

one_step_closer 23-11-2022 05:56 PM

Hi Tamo, I had a review with my support worker and it seemed to go ok. Was going to go to Aldi but didn't bother because I wanted a day with not too much to do after having things on for three days in a row.

How has your day been? Did you have any visitors?

tamobhuuta 23-11-2022 06:00 PM

I'm glad the review seemed OK. And it's ok to procrastinate sometimes :)

I had a good visit with my dad and L will be here soon. My day has been mixed but manageable.

one_step_closer 23-11-2022 06:09 PM

I hope you enjoy seeing L. Do you sleep ok?

Cacoethes 23-11-2022 06:48 PM

I was at work today!
Had to do my full shift. Boooo!
My taekwondo instructor came in for lunch. I wasn't sure if it was him because i have literally never seen him without a dobok on before! Weird seeing people out of context!

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 07:24 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 24-11-2022 10:50 AM

Morning Beckie. I made it just before it becomes noon here in Denmark!!! Yay!! Speedy GonZurg!!! That is i!!! :D

It's cold. A bit rainy. Gloomy!!!
Is the weather nicer at your place, Beckie???

tamobhuuta 24-11-2022 10:54 AM

Hi Cacoethes and Zurg.

I fell asleep in my clothes!

Zurg 24-11-2022 10:58 AM

I hope you slept Well, Tamo. Sounds like you needed it. Xx
Are you doing anything nice today??

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 11:31 AM

Hey guys!

It's cold here but no rain for a change!
Weather has been grim lately!
It is meant to rain later though! Hoping my friend can give me a lift to taekwondo!

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 12:54 PM

Hi everyone.

It's really cold and windy and heavy-ish rain here right now. I'm glad I missed it when I was out getting my prescription and going to Aldi.

What are you doing today, Kat?

I hope you had a good sleep, Tamo. Do you have any visitors today?

Fingers crossed for getting a lift, Beckie. How are you getting on with Taekwondo?

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 12:58 PM

Glad you missed the rain!
I've been caught out in it nearly every day!

Taekwondo is really good thanks!
Learning lots of new things!

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 01:07 PM

That's such bad luck!

How many 'levels' are there in taekwondo? Is there an end point?

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 01:08 PM

Oh and I meant to say - Tamo, are you still looking for a zen garden? The Works are selling one now.

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 01:20 PM

And P.S would anyone like a Christmas card if you trust me with your address? I already know I'm sending one to Dawn.

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 01:43 PM

There are lots of levels in taekwondo!
I think the highest is black belt 10th Dan. But not many people get there! It's a literal lifetime thing. The creator of taekwondo was 9th Dan i believe.
My club's instructor is 6th Dan. Which is very high up!
So there are endless opportunities to level up!
From the top of my head it goes:
White belt
Yellow tag
Yellow belt
Green tag
Green belt
Blue tag
Blue belt
Red tag
Red belt
Black tag
Black belt
And then the black belt degrees (dan)

Just cleaned out the furry potatoes!
Think there's more hay now in my living room and kitchen than there is in their cage XD

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 03:34 PM

How can you continue to learn so much?! I didn't think there would be so many moves.

The hay situation sounds like the situation I have with cat hair or cat litter!

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 03:39 PM

There is a LOT to learn!
Many different punches and blocks and kicks and patterns!

Yep i guess it would be similar!
I found hay in my bed! Pulled the covers back and there was hay! Ridiculous!

It's raining. Again. Ugh!

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 03:45 PM

Hay in your bed! :laugh: Jesus slept in hay.

When do you need to go back out?

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 03:50 PM


Not until 5:40ish!
But then i have to stand outside until the doors open....

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 03:55 PM

Make sure you wrap up warm if you're not getting a lift.

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 04:05 PM

I've just messaged my friend to see if she's coming tonight! Fingers crossed!

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 04:10 PM

Ok so sadly she is not coming tonight. She's stuck at work!
So it's going to be a wet walk for me today!

one_step_closer 24-11-2022 04:59 PM

Maybe the rain will be kind and stop for you.

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 05:15 PM

It has stopped! For now....
According to the forecast, it's not meant to rain again today. Or tomorrow actually! So fingers crossed!

tamobhuuta 24-11-2022 05:24 PM

I was really enjoying the noise of the rain with the window open but it got too cold.

Zurg 24-11-2022 07:23 PM

I am tired and i don't want to adult any more today!!!!

I cleaned out Findus' litter tray, hoovered the flat, went to my psych appointment and did some grocery shopping and parcel fetching on the Way back. Back home to feed the zoo their afternoon snacks, shower and heat dinner. I feel like i've been running a marathon and writing a thesis at the same time, like my brain and body are unable to perform any further today!!!!

And i sit here and read about all the levels in taekwondo and i'm like… nope!!! I'm good!!!! Should someone make the truly horrible decision to assault me, i'm all for kicking them in the balls!!! Which is the only move i know!!! :P

Cacoethes 24-11-2022 07:29 PM

Sounds like you have adulted enough for today zurg!

Haha! That always works well tbh :tongue2:
