Boggit, gremlin, you little ****, and more in that line.

And yes I did finish my breakfast, just missed bit that was visibly licked.

[Luna] 20-03-2021 02:31 PM

Are you even a cat owner if you don’t call them a little ****?

not_so_insig 20-03-2021 02:32 PM

Hello all. I have received an parcel today. It's an art set.

tamobhuuta 20-03-2021 02:34 PM

Ooo exciting, what's in it?

tamobhuuta 20-03-2021 02:35 PM

Back in January I bought myself watercolours and charcoal.

[Luna] 20-03-2021 02:44 PM

An art set sounds cool. What sort of art do you do?

not_so_insig 20-03-2021 02:48 PM

It's got acrylic paint, watercolour paint, oil paint, watercolour pencils, colouring pencils, oil pastels, brushes, palettes, pencil sharpener and an eraser. All in a sturdy case. I have posted a picture in the picture board.

not_so_insig 20-03-2021 02:50 PM

I primarily do acrylic paint landscapes with the occasional watercolour Luna. Lorraine and I show each other our art.

Cacoethes 20-03-2021 04:01 PM

I've found a half decent wifi spot so I'm in here downloading a load of stuff on Netflix

[Luna] 20-03-2021 04:15 PM

What you downloading Beckie?

Cacoethes 20-03-2021 04:27 PM

The Hangover trilogy!
Just felt like watching it for some reason

And some QI

tamobhuuta 20-03-2021 06:37 PM

I haven't seen that in ages.

Cacoethes 20-03-2021 08:38 PM

I watch QI quite a lot

nonperson 20-03-2021 08:54 PM

Can I have some food shop encouragement? =(

Cacoethes 20-03-2021 08:58 PM

Oh no! Not the dreaded food shop!
You can do it!! *sends motivation*

nonperson 20-03-2021 09:01 PM

Thank you <3

It comes round so quickly but I really need to do it tonight and not tomorrow morning but I've been horizontal pretty much all day and have no desire to go out into the dark and cold and people. =(

Just waiting for my soup to go down then I'll go.

Cacoethes 20-03-2021 09:20 PM

I know it's so so hard to get out and do stuff.
You'll be glad when it's done though

nonperson 20-03-2021 11:09 PM


Very quiet in there tonight too.

not_so_insig 20-03-2021 11:16 PM

Well done nonperson.

nonperson 20-03-2021 11:30 PM

Thanks Dawn.

Have you used any of your new art supplies yet?

nonperson 21-03-2021 10:00 AM

Good morning everyone.

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 10:41 AM

Morning np! How are you?

nonperson 21-03-2021 10:45 AM

Hey. I'm... ehh *shrug*

How're you?

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 11:05 AM

Same really.
It's an ehh kinda day

Got much planned today?

[Luna] 21-03-2021 11:37 AM

Hey guys

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 11:58 AM

Hi Luna
How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-03-2021 12:06 PM

Hi :) I am ok. More of once upon a time later. But having a cup of tea right now.

nonperson 21-03-2021 12:26 PM

Hey Luna and Tamo. =)

I'm dog sitting today so going for a walk later... Got a video call with the family in five minutes. =/

tamobhuuta 21-03-2021 12:34 PM

I don't like video calls. I think I have to have one with the neurologist soon.

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 12:52 PM

Good luck with the video call np!

What kind of dogs are you looking after?

nonperson 21-03-2021 02:18 PM

I don't like video calls either but it's ok with the family. I laughed so hard I cried when we started messing around with the face filter thingies.

The dog is a beagle =)

not_so_insig 21-03-2021 03:48 PM

Afternoon all. I have had a shower and have washed my hair.

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 03:48 PM

Sounds like you had a good time np!

Aww beagles are cute

nonperson 21-03-2021 04:09 PM

Yeah, haven't laughed like that for a very very long time. Hopefully I'll be going home in three weeks to see them in person.

Beagles are cute. She was quite cuddly at lunch time.

not_so_insig 21-03-2021 04:17 PM

Why is there naff all on the telly on a Sunday?

Cacoethes 21-03-2021 05:32 PM

That will be nice :)

Aww cuddly beagle!

True dawn

nonperson 21-03-2021 07:58 PM

I've just seen an advert for something called Celebrity Motor Home... like wtf. o.O

Although thinking about it sensibly, it's probably just about really fancy expensive motorhomes and not about celebrities slumming it in a caravan park.

the latter could potentially be more interesting... esspecially if they just like fill a really cruddy caravan park with comedians or something

nonperson 21-03-2021 08:45 PM

Oh for sure.

Actually I think it's about some celebs travelling around in a motorhome having some sorts of adventures along the way.

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 11:07 AM

Hey guys. How are we this fine morning?

shadow-light 22-03-2021 11:58 AM


i'm not having the best day so far... the receptionist at the GPs upset me a bit and I am STILL trying to fill out the WCA form for the job centre... after a week of working on it still not finished :laugh:
but... it's still early so hopefully this afternoon will be better

how's others?

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 12:00 PM

What's a WCA form?

shadow-light 22-03-2021 12:02 PM

work capacity assesment. it's kind of like the new ESA, i'm fairly sure it shouldn't take over a week to fill in...

should be getting PIP form int he post soon too, I'm hoping that one might be easier to figure out

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 12:41 PM

Benefit forms are the worst

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 12:43 PM

It might be worth asking someone who knows you well to help with the forms. My parents were helpful.

shadow-light 22-03-2021 12:48 PM

unfortunately i have noone who can really help, esspecially given the whole covid thing meaning that i cant see anyone... got a friend who i'd usually get to help me, but obviously i cant go see him at the moment

and until 2 days ago i hadn't spoken to my mum in over a year... she would have a fit if she knew i was even applying for this sort of thing as i'm obviously just "being lazy and exadurating stuff"

I'm between treatment teams, and just getting a GP appointment for a med review this morning was hell so the idea of getting a letter off a professional is just too much for my brain to deal with

I tried to get the boyfriend to help but he just did that thing where he claimed to not understand the form...

but anyway... what you both up to today?

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 01:23 PM

What a pain

I'm not up to anything apart from pestering doctors to do stuff they should have done last week

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 01:26 PM

I'll just be working my way through my coping skills, including a walk.

shadow-light 22-03-2021 01:49 PM

to be honest i may just give up on the forms and send them as they are... they are going to phone and ask a million questions either way

eugh, hate having to pester doctors... espeically when it's for something that should have happened already

not sure about where you are but the weather looks brilliant here so a walk sounds great

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 01:53 PM

The PIP people didn't phone me. They just asked for professionals details so they could contact them, i assume.

I know. Like, I know doctors are very busy and important but it's kinda their job to do these things
