Literally all they are meant to do is make sure i take my meds. Which I've been doing on my own for weeks now anyway! And I don't plan on stopping!

I could!
I'm just terrible at forgetting to buy things that i don't buy all the time. Like coke zero i always remember because i get it all the time. But things like bin bags and deodorant i don't buy for a really long time and requires me to go down other aisles in asda. So i always forget!
And the toilet roll ends up cheaper buying from Groupon.
And toilet roll is always good to have a stock of!
I have a big cupboard under the stairs!
Most of it i can get in my bathroom though!

Amazon have been so i have nothing to do for the rest of the day!

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:40 PM

I'm glad you have a positive attitude about your meds and will keep taking them without the carers.

Sounds like you're on top of the things you need. I just put a list in my phone when I need something and add to it as other things are needed.

Do you know what you're going to do with the rest of your day?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 12:52 PM

I just don't want to end up as ill as i was last time
I literally nearly died!
It wasn't a good time!

Yep i am! Got to have at least one thing in my life sorted XD
Phone lists never worked for me. But I'm glad you get on with them :)

No idea!
I feel like i need a new piercing but i can't really afford it today! So I'd better not!

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 04:55 PM

Do you even have any ear space left? :laugh: Or are you thinking of getting one somewhere else?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 05:37 PM

Haha! You'd be surprised at how many piercings you can get in an ear! :-D
I've been thinking of getting a couple of lip piercings too

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:22 PM

Yo np!
How be you?

nonperson 13-05-2022 08:28 PM


Tired. =( How're you? Do you know there's a new Three Days Grace album out?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:42 PM

Do you have the weekend off now?

I'm good thanks!
Ooooh i did not know that! Will be checking that out for sure!

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:05 PM

Yep, no work until Monday.

I've known the singles for a while but listened through the album today. Need to listen some more to make a proper opinion but there were some stand out songs straight away.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 09:29 PM

Good good!
Hopefully you'll have time to rest!

I'll add them to my playlist and have a listen tomorrow!

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:43 PM

Well I should be tackling my knee height lawn... but yeah, hopefully some rest.

Awesome. =D

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 09:48 PM

Oh dear!
I think my lawn would be in the same state if my neighbour didn't cut it for me lol

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:54 PM

Mine's not proper lawn grass so gets out of hand easily. I was proud of giving it an early mow but haven't done it since so... whoops. Going to have to strim it first cos even my mighty mower probably won't go through it. =(

My neighbour's lawn is immaculate.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 10:25 PM

I can't deal with strimmers!
They terrify me!!

nonperson 13-05-2022 10:33 PM

I have a tiny electric one at home, it's simple enough,.

The petrol ones at work scare me a bit. But I do like strimming. it's a nice, simple, mindless sort of task.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 09:55 AM

I think i might be able to handle an electric one

Morning everyone!
Had a lie in until nearly 9am this morning!

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 10:21 AM

Morning all. I received the book today Lindsay thanks very much.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2022 11:02 AM

Morning :) I'm enjoying my new blackout curtain.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 11:08 AM

That's good! :)

tamobhuuta 14-05-2022 11:09 AM

Any plans for today?

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 11:22 AM

Morning everyone.

Did you enjoy your lie in Beckie? What have you got on today?

You're welcome Dawn, I hope you enjoy it.

Is it not harder to get up in the morning with a blackout curtain Tamo?

I've not got much to do today. Been to Tesco and to my horror they don't seem to sell chilled soup any more. I'll have to try Aldi tomorrow.

Oh and I got myself up at 8.50am without a phone call from my support worker (they don't work at the weekend).

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 11:48 AM

Nope no plans whatsoever!
It's too hot for me today!
Though my house is good at keeping cool

I did enjoy my lie in thanks lindsay!

That's fantastic lindsay! Well done!
Shame about the soup though
Always sad when a supermarket stops doing something you like!

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 12:52 PM

Is anyone going to be watching the football or Eurovision tonight? Bet Ukraine win.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:11 PM

I heard Ukraine are the favourites to win

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 01:20 PM

I won't be watching football but I am gonna watch Eurovision.

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 01:25 PM

I won't be watching either of them. I'll just be watching some catch up TV.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:28 PM

I'm just browsing tinder lol

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 01:30 PM

Ooh, are you looking for someone?

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:55 PM

Kind of!
Downloaded it in hospital during a slight hypomania!
But I've kept it.
Maybe the right person will pop up!

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 04:57 PM

Fingers crossed, if it would be good for you to have someone.

Zurg 14-05-2022 05:23 PM

They should make a tinder kind of app for people who want to meet available pets for cuddles. I'd so spend all my days hanging out with peoples' Golden retrievers, kitty cats and Guinea pigs when they were home alone <3

Pets=yes please!!!

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 05:36 PM

Thanks lindsay!
It would be nice to have someone!

Ohhh that would be awesome zurg!
Think you're on to something there!
Tbh i do tend to swipe right on guys with pets in their pictures!

Zurg 14-05-2022 06:47 PM

I am also pretty sure that if a man has a pet, he can't be a full blown psycho!!! Which is always a plus!!! ;-)

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 06:48 PM

Yes exactly!!! :-D

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 08:00 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 15-05-2022 11:58 AM

Morning Beckie. How are you?

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 12:03 PM

I'm ok thanks!
My new pillows have been delivered so i am happy!
Bored though!

How are you?

one_step_closer 15-05-2022 12:06 PM

Are they comfy? Boredom is so annoying, do you have nothing much to do today? I've already done all of my housework so I'm bored too. Feeling pretty low. It was hard to get up at 9am today. I went back to bed and got up at 9.03am though!

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 12:11 PM

Sooo comfy and squishy!
I'm saving them for when i get my new bed on Tuesday!
Also got a mattress topper coming tomorrow :-D

Nope nothing to do today!
Apart from some washing which doesn't take up a lot of time!

Sorry to hear you're feeling low.
That's great! You're on a roll with getting up early!

one_step_closer 15-05-2022 02:31 PM

So exciting! Are you getting new bedding too? I hope you have a lovely cosy comfy bed and sleep well in it.

Have you been managing to occupy yourself? I've mostly been reading.

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 02:50 PM

Yes i have new bedding too!
My mattress topper arrived early!
Which is good because it was in a MASSIVE box!
It's memory foam! And temperature controls itself somehow!
Thank you :)
I'm sure i will be very comfy!

Not really! Just watching TV
Are you reading anything good?

tamobhuuta 15-05-2022 03:32 PM

Hi guys x

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 03:35 PM

Hey tamo!

one_step_closer 15-05-2022 03:46 PM

Sounds very clever Beckie! What's on TV?

I just finished the book. It was a good read so it didn't take me long.

Hi Tamo. How is your day going?

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 03:56 PM

I'm watching the Goldbergs currently!

That's good! Glad you enjoyed it!

one_step_closer 15-05-2022 04:41 PM

I think I've heard of that but not seen it.

Cacoethes 15-05-2022 04:50 PM

It's quite good!
There's some new episodes out tonight

Cacoethes 16-05-2022 06:53 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-05-2022 11:22 AM
