Morning lindsay!
I'm ok. Got to go for my depot in a minute. Booooo!
How are you?

Oh that does sound like a surprise!

tamobhuuta 13-10-2020 11:06 AM

Morning both. I slept really well last night. I'm really hoping today I will be less spasmy!

What's the point of the scaffolding osc?

Have fun Cacoethes!

one_step_closer 13-10-2020 12:17 PM

I don't know what the scaffolding is for. The people said they're just contracted to put it up. I think the council will be doing whatever needs done. A bit of notice would be good.

Will you get some rest after getting your depot Beckie?

I'm glad you slept well Tamo. What causes the spasms?

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 12:52 PM

Very strange lindsay!

I have been to asda and been to get my prescription. Though they inexplicably only have one of my medications even though I ordered them all so I have to go back after 2pm to see if they've managed to get them together. So that's annoying.

chinahorse 13-10-2020 01:02 PM

Hey guys, oh that is so annoying beckie, my pharmacy is like that. And then they moan I go the day the prescription is sent. Makes no difference, I could wait 4 years and they still wouldn't have gotten it together.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 01:04 PM

Hi Lillie. How are you?

It is very annoying!
Usually they're pretty good but its all gone wrong today!
I got the text saying it was ready and everything!

chinahorse 13-10-2020 01:07 PM

Oh dear, at least they are normally ok, fingers crossed this is a one off.

Im not good at all really. Called in sick and am using today to try and decrease my stress levels and get things done. I will have a bath to try and help my muscles at some point too. I also spoke to the gp who altered a med.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 01:12 PM

Really hope so!

Sorry to hear that Lillie
Well done for calling in sick. Sounds like that was the best thing for you

chinahorse 13-10-2020 01:26 PM

Thanks beckie, Im trying not to beat myself up for it and have put the day to good use so far and it is helping me.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 01:35 PM

No need to beat yourself up about it.
You aren't feeling well and that's a perfectly valid reason to call in sick!
I'm glad the day off is helping
Sounds like you're doing all the right things

tamobhuuta 13-10-2020 04:01 PM

Well done for taking the day off china. Hugs.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 04:09 PM

What's everyone up to this afternoon?
I have to shower at some point. Ugh

not_so_insig 13-10-2020 04:16 PM

Recovering from my cpn appointment.

chinahorse 13-10-2020 04:55 PM

Thanks tamo and beckie :)

I had a nap and am doing more coursework and drinking large volumes of tea.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 05:04 PM

Tea solves everything!

chinahorse 13-10-2020 05:17 PM

It is certainly making things a lot more bearable.

nonperson 13-10-2020 05:24 PM

Have you tried the jam and toast tea, Lillie?

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 05:55 PM

I too am curious about the jam and toast tea

not_so_insig 13-10-2020 05:57 PM

I want to try it but tesco doesn't stock it :-(

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:02 PM

Order it online?

I kinda want to try it too. There's a tea and biscuits one as well though that doesn't sound so nice.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 06:05 PM

Tea and biscuits tea just sounds like it would taste like the soggy bits of biscuit left in the tea after you've had a good biscuit dunking session

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:08 PM

It all depends on the kind of biscuit surely?

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 06:25 PM

I was thinking digestive

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:30 PM

Is that too crumbly to be a good dunker?

I have dark chocolate digestives at the moment. The chocolate layer seems to stop them falling apart when I dunk in hot chocolate. =P

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 06:33 PM

The chocolate definitely does keep them together!
The plain ones are a bit crumbly for dunking

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:37 PM

Chocolate ones are the only way to go anyway, even without dunking.

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:38 PM

Dunking is one of those words that loses its meaning the more you say it... o.o


Dunking dunking dunking

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 06:40 PM

Oh god don't!
I had that with 'Alabama' earlier!
It doesn't sound like a real place/word after a while

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:46 PM


Most American places don't sound like real words! Except the ones they nicked from us of course. =P

Only joking, our place names sound odd too. Counties ending with "Shire" spring to mind.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 06:55 PM

I live in a county ending in Shire!
I like to tell people I live in the shire.
Though there are many!

nonperson 13-10-2020 06:56 PM

Me too, hehe. It's nothing like the Shire here though.

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 07:03 PM

Nope not here either unfortunately!

yoyogirl 13-10-2020 07:40 PM

I’m really struggling can’t seem to enjoy anything at the moment, I feel so flat ... I feel like having an early night and going to bed. Zzzz

nonperson 13-10-2020 07:47 PM

Early nights can be helpful.

nonperson 13-10-2020 07:49 PM

Also (probably said this already but only just made the link) the town where I grew up has LotR themed road names so that was nearly like being in the Shire for real!

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 08:05 PM

That is so cool!

I went past an estate which had all norse mythology names for their streets. Like Thor drive and Asgard close!

chinahorse 13-10-2020 08:14 PM

Random question which mold/mould is the one of the non fungal variety?

As in 'we took a mould/mold of the patients anterior teeth'

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:14 PM

Now that is awesome.

Imagine living in Asgard... =O

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 08:14 PM

I think it's mould

I know np! I would take great pleasure in telling people I lived in Asgard!

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:16 PM

Mold, I think.

Also Google tells me that's a town in Wales.

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:16 PM

Oh no, conflicting advice!!

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:17 PM

Google is now telling me that "mold" is the US English version of "mould".

So it's mould, whether it's a mouldy plate or a mould of teeth.

chinahorse 13-10-2020 08:18 PM

Imagine living in mould!

Lol you people should have conferred. Im going with mould as thats the one my computer doesnt object to.

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:20 PM

Hmmm, yeah Asgard or Mould, tough choice, hehe. =P

It is definitely mould. Sorry for adding to the confusion there!

chinahorse 13-10-2020 08:22 PM

Theres a place nearish me called Pratts Bottom.

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:24 PM

Wonder what sort of people live there. =X

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 08:24 PM

I did think mold was the American spelling of it but wasn't sure so didn't say so!

Ha! Pratts Bottom.
The UK is so weird

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:33 PM

I trusted that Google knew I wasn't American. Should have known better. *hangs head in shame*

Cacoethes 13-10-2020 08:37 PM

It's the cone of shame for you np! :p

nonperson 13-10-2020 08:42 PM

Oh no! =(

I must be bored - actually thought of fishing the cat's one out and putting it on myself for a second there....
