i ended up googling it, turns out its a spin of of a spin off! Never know of a spin off to have its own spin off before

Cacoethes 21-06-2021 07:59 PM

Spin off-ception!

EyelinerAndCigarettes 21-06-2021 08:24 PM

Thanks! :blush:

Yep, I am very excited about the glasses! I'm okay :) How are you all? I can't wait for bedtime; the other night I went to sleep at 8 but then I woke up really early so I'm trying to wait until 9.30 haha

Cacoethes 21-06-2021 08:38 PM

I'm good thanks :)

Hopefully you'll get a good sleep tonight!
Waking up early is frustrating!

not_so_insig 21-06-2021 09:11 PM

I am feeling slightly better now compared to before. I forgot that Keeping Up Appearances was on so watched that and managed to finish off the book I started last night.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 10:00 AM

Morning guys!

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 10:28 AM

Morning Beckie how are you?

shadow-light 22-06-2021 10:40 AM


Cacoethes 22-06-2021 10:52 AM

Morning dawn and Hazel!

I'm ok thanks
How are you both?

tamobhuuta 22-06-2021 11:03 AM

Hey guys.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 11:11 AM

Hi tamo
How are you?

shadow-light 22-06-2021 11:13 AM

i'm fairly meh... not sure why but been meh for about 3 days

how's everyone else? Anyone up to much?

tamobhuuta 22-06-2021 11:14 AM

I'm ok, a bit tired but that will probably pass. And really spasmy! How are you?

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 11:27 AM

Have you been up to much Hazel?

I'm not up to anything today.

Glad you're ok tamo. Apart from the spasms!

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 11:46 AM

I am a lot better than yesterday thanks Beckie. I have a busy day today as I have tesco shopping order coming plus my cpn and parents. Hopefully my cpn won't be too early as it will be a nightmare if both her and tesco come at the same time!

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 11:57 AM

That's good dawn :)
Hopefully they won't come at the same time!

shadow-light 22-06-2021 12:03 PM

nothing much going on here. I went to a BBQ on saturday so actually saw other humans!

been feeling a bit off ever since... maybe i just need to get used to socialising again

got online meeting with care coordinator at 2, is it bad that I kind of hate him? And got college this evening, I've turned into a problem student (my words noone elses)... I've literally never failed an exam before, but I've now failed this one 5 times... I just cannot seem to focus for longer than 20 seconds in order to pass... everyone else has finiahed the course but i'm still redoing this damn exam every week

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 12:09 PM

No it's not bad that you hate him as you might not be compatible. I had a cpn whose actions made me hate her.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 12:13 PM

Some cpns are just crap.

What's the exam in?

shadow-light 22-06-2021 12:15 PM

i saw him last tuesday at 2, was meant to be for an hour but he wrapped it up at 2.40 and said he'd email me with this weeks appointment saying it would probably be the same time.

firstly the 20 min early stoppage bothered me as I feel i did something wrong and in my mind that hour was earmarked for the meeting and I dont deal with change of timings well... and then he's not emailed me, so I am only guessing it's at 2 today... I have none of his details to contact him either as until last week I was seing a different person (she changed jobs so now got this guy)

so in essence I have now spent a week refreshing my emails constantly waiting for the promised email...

it's probably all an overreaction on my part

level 2 anatomy... I did anatomy at university and I used to teach anatomy at college... so I cannot work out why I can't pass the damn thing :laugh:

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 12:48 PM

That's really crap Hazel
I don't think you're overreacting.

Anatomy is tricky!

nonperson 22-06-2021 12:56 PM

How was the BBQ in the end, Hazel? I remember you talking about it. I find the effects of social interaction can last a while after too.

I am feeling slightly more human today and have been out in the garden for a bit digging up nettles but have given up for now as I was getting too hot and dusty and having to stop and itch my face every few seconds. Taken an antihistamine so I'll have leftover pizza, wait for that to work and go back out for a bit.

Got my second covid jab this evening! Keep forgetting though.

shadow-light 22-06-2021 12:59 PM

the BBQ was ok, though I may have drunk a bit too much in an attempt to make socialisation easier... a plan that I regret :laugh:

I really need to get my jab booked... not even had the first one yet

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 12:59 PM

Glad you're feeling a bit better np!
Well done for the gardening work!
Hopefully the anti histamine will work!

nonperson 22-06-2021 01:10 PM

That plan is usually one that people end up regretting =P Glad it was ok though.

I hope it will work, can't stand my face being itchy as well as being barked at by the neighbour's dogs and getting.stung by nettles! =(

I also hope I don't get a headache and neck ache from the jab like last time because I really can't afford to be unwell any longer. So much gardening still to do for Monday's inspection...

Did anyone watch Birdgirl in the end? I fell asleep.

shadow-light 22-06-2021 01:12 PM

i've heard that if you got a reaction to the first jab you are less likely to get one the second and visa versa. No idea if that's true or not, but it seems to be what many people are saying

were you particularly tired or is that a negative review for birdgirl? :P

nonperson 22-06-2021 01:15 PM

It seems to be very different for everyone!

Haha, no I was really tired and fell asleep watching something else before it even started. =P

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 01:16 PM

I wasn't really affected by the second jab. My arm didn't even hurt at all!
I felt nauseous 2 days afterwards but I think that was a coincidence.

I didn't watch it. I fell asleep too!
Will it be on catch up do you know?

shadow-light 22-06-2021 01:18 PM

i'd imagine it will be on catch up, we are planning on watching harley quinn on catch up so i'd guess birdgirl will also be on

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 01:22 PM

Awesome! Thanks

nonperson 22-06-2021 01:25 PM

Pretty much everything is on catch up nowadays.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 01:42 PM


not_so_insig 22-06-2021 01:53 PM

My tesco shopping order came early. Having a rest between putting everything away. Only 1 substitution which is good.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 02:03 PM

That's good

shadow-light 22-06-2021 02:07 PM

been sat in the stupid attend anywhere waiting room for 15 minuets now... not entirely sure wha i'm meant to do

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 02:11 PM

That's not good Hazel!
Is there anyone you can email or anything?

shadow-light 22-06-2021 02:12 PM

other than last weeks meeting I have had zero contact with this guy so got no email or phone for him... also no idea if even meant to haev an appointment today so best not to make a fuss by calling main office

shadow-light 22-06-2021 02:17 PM

rang the CMHT number I have on an old email... its a voice message service... so not really any help

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 02:26 PM

Ugh they are useless!

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 02:27 PM

Hopefully you will get an answer soon shadow as to whether you are seeing someone or not today.

shadow-light 22-06-2021 03:06 PM

had a voicemail left saying it was half 2 not 2... so now I am embarassed as I was ttoally panicking on the message i left to the point of stuttering, and I am very annoyed because he still hasn't emailed me and he PROMISED to email me last week... also I have done literally nothing all day other than sit staring at my laptop waiting for the danm appointment

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 03:12 PM

That's so bad Hazel
He sounds useless!

shadow-light 22-06-2021 03:33 PM

i've literally no idea how I was meant to know it was meant to be half 2... last week was 2, week before 2, week before tha 2...

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 03:37 PM

Sometimes it's like they expect you to be a mind reader

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 03:44 PM

I am sorry that your cc is being a pain in the behind shadow. My cpn was late which is unlike her but at least she apologised.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 04:28 PM

I've just watched both Harley Quinn and Birdgirl. They were pretty good!

not_so_insig 22-06-2021 04:42 PM

I am glad that you enjoyed your shows Beckie.

Cacoethes 22-06-2021 04:54 PM

Thanks Dawn :)

shadow-light 22-06-2021 05:02 PM

Would you recommend birdgirl? Is prior knowledge needed or is it a stand alone thing?
