Morning peoples. How are you?

nonperson 27-09-2020 10:09 AM

Morning Tamo.

I'm still sleepy and have lots to do today. x.x

How're you?

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 10:30 AM

I'm ok but my anxiety is already kicking in.

nonperson 27-09-2020 10:41 AM

Think you can manage it ok? Got anything nice happening today to distract?

one_step_closer 27-09-2020 11:05 AM

Morning everyone.

I watched the video of sparkles, I think I would have fallen dizzy running! She is great.

That doesn't mean your anxiety will carry on all through the day. Do you have any times when it gets better or worse. Maybe you can figure out when it changes and put things in place to lessen it.

Do you NEED to do the lots Np?

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 11:24 AM

Morning everyone

She's so speedy! That was the one she came first in.

Lindsay has good ideas tamo

Oh no np! I hope you can find times to rest in between jobs!

nonperson 27-09-2020 12:29 PM

Afternoon Lindsay and Beckie.

Yeah I do need to do it all really as I did nothing at all yesterday. I need food so need to go the shop during the daytime on a Sunday *sob* and also definitely need clean clothes for tomorrow... and need to clean the kitchen... and need to change my bedding to winter mode before I freeze in the night. Other stuff like hoovering and gardening can wait...

Anyone doing/eating anything nice today?

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 12:34 PM

Ah that sucks np
Wish I could come and help you out!

I am doing nothing apart from trying not to freeze!
I've brought my duvet down to try and warm up. It's so cold!
I'm surprised the letting agent hasn't sorted it by now

nonperson 27-09-2020 12:38 PM

It was 16 degrees in my house this morning and I had two duvets and a quilt and a hot cat on my bed last night. It's not even proper winter temperatures yet!

I haven't put my heating on yet, can probably wait a while longer until it's unbearable.

They really should get a move on and fix that for you. =( Give them a call tomorrow?

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 12:45 PM

I know! It should not be this cold!

I hate putting my heating on because money but I totally would have done today and last night

I was going to give them another day to sort it out and call on Tuesday, as then it would be a week since I told them about it
My mum is very annoyed about the whole situation!

nonperson 27-09-2020 01:01 PM

I dunno, I'd probably ring them tomorrow if I were you.

At least it's warming up the next few days.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 01:03 PM

I probably should.

Thank goodness for that!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 02:14 PM

I feel much better now I've prayed. Also did some coping activities.

L is going to help me put a poster up...on my ceiling...

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 02:21 PM

That's good tamo :)

That's going to be a task!

I've found my hot water bottle so I'm warming up!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 03:51 PM

My house is toasty, luckily. But i went for a walk and it was chilly, i wore my parka.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 04:03 PM

Lucky you!

nonperson 27-09-2020 04:54 PM

Glad you've got your hot water bottle, Beckie.

The car said it was 14 degrees outside. Brr.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 05:07 PM

It is helping a lot!

My phone is saying 13
Cold cold cold

nonperson 27-09-2020 05:13 PM

You need a little plug in electric heater or something. =(

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 05:24 PM

I hate those things.
Sucks up so much electricity and I'm scared of the fire risk!

nonperson 27-09-2020 05:31 PM

Yeah, same. Would be good in emergencies though. =/

I've got one on the wall that they put in after blocking up the fireplace but I never use it.

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 05:38 PM

I set fire to my rug with a heater once.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 05:48 PM

My mum offered to bring one but I'm terrified of them!
I'll cope with my duvet and hot water bottle!

nonperson 27-09-2020 06:07 PM

That's a bit scary, Tamo. o.o

I put my heated mattress protector back on my bed today. =)

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 06:23 PM

Ooo lovely!

nonperson 27-09-2020 06:27 PM

After my tumble drier I think it's the second best thing I have ever bought. =P

I really hate getting into a cold bed.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 06:33 PM

I quite like getting into a cold bed. I like being able to warm up!

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:22 PM

My bedroom is usually really cold in the winter so it's not that sort of pleasant bed coolness. Without the mattress protector I used to get in and scissor my arms and legs around loads to build up friction and warmth really quickly. But now it just heats up enough to take the chill off, I don't use it all night.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:27 PM

Ah ok that's fair enough!
That sounds nice and toasty then

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:35 PM

It's probably going to all be too hot now with winter duvet as well. =P

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:36 PM

Haha! :p

Time to refill the hot water bottle! The kettle is getting a workout today!

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:41 PM

Hehe, many much needed cups of tea and hot water bottle refills.

Erf, I can't believe it's Sunday evening already. x.x

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:44 PM


I know. The weekends usually go really slow for me but this one has sped past!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 07:48 PM

My poster is now on my ceiling :)

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:50 PM

What's everyone up to?
I'm watching The Meg. It's become one of my favourite films I think

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:50 PM

Weekends always go too quickly. =(

Yay, good stuff Tamo! =)

Anyone up to anything exciting next week?

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:51 PM

ninja post np!

Nope just the usual stuff
Depot, slimming world, a different depot later on in the week. Fun times
How about you?

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:51 PM

Ninja, Beckie.

I've never seen the Meg. I think it's a favourite of zombie's though. I'm pretty sure he's tried to get me to watch it.

I'm just listening to music with Big Bang Theory on mute.

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:52 PM

Ahhhhh, stop being so ninja!! XD

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:52 PM

Just work for me. =/

Are you going back to swimming?

tamobhuuta 27-09-2020 07:53 PM

I need to do.some laundry and have a shower.

nonperson 27-09-2020 07:54 PM

I have done mega laundry today! Like 5 loads I think!

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 07:57 PM


It's a good film. I both love sharks and am terrified of them so it's good.

I should go back to swimming really but anxiety has been kicking my arse lately!

Well done on the laundry np!

nonperson 27-09-2020 08:10 PM

It seems a bit silly for my liking. =P

Aw, I'm sure you'll go back eventually when the time is right. =)

Edward Scissorhands has come on now. =x

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 08:17 PM


Yeah I'm sure I will. Hopefully soon!

Ooo that's a good film

nonperson 27-09-2020 08:20 PM


I'm still watching it on mute though, heh.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 08:32 PM

That would drive me crazy

nonperson 27-09-2020 08:37 PM

Well I know what's going on.

My bluetooth speaker has run out of battery now though so the tv has been unmuted.

Cacoethes 27-09-2020 08:38 PM

I guess so!

Ooo get you and your fancy Bluetooth speaker :p

I have hiccups

nonperson 27-09-2020 08:51 PM

Ah it's not so fancy but it does follow me everywhere around the house. =)

Nooo not hiccups. Drink water upside down, quick!
