I can imagine!

Yeah i just laughed!

nonperson 18-05-2022 09:14 PM

Everyone's got their quirks, there's nothing weird about it.

We were playing Potter Puppet Pals to cheer ourselves up and she'd never heard of it before. Luckily it finished just as our big boss walked in, lol.

Cacoethes 18-05-2022 09:18 PM


I haven't seen PPP in agggesss!
Still quote it on a regular basis though!

nonperson 18-05-2022 10:04 PM

So do we. =P Something someone said set us off so we were Ron Weeeeasly-ing for a while after >.>

Go watch it now.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 06:25 AM

I shall watch it today!

Morning everyone!

Zurg 19-05-2022 08:11 AM

I cried of laughter when i first watched potter puppet pals. I watched 'the mysterious ticking noise' and still to this day i find it hilarious.

I've had strawberries with cream for breakfast. Now i am trying to psyche myself up for a shower. I had to cut my hair off yesterday due to a most unfortunate (or several) encounter with bleach and hair dye. It started breaking and fell off in huge chunks every time i combed it or ran my hand through it. Not good!!!
But it's really remarkable how fast a shower can be when you have very little hair….!!!

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 08:33 AM

It is indeed hilarious!

Oooh strawberries and cream! Nice!

Oh no! My hair comes out a lot too.

Zurg 19-05-2022 08:59 AM

I was actually happy with the lenght of my hair now, lol. So in retrospect, i probably shouldn't have killed it… may it rest in peace!!!
I look absolutely ridiculous. I look like a man. Which i suppose would be okay if i wanted to look like one…. But i don't!!!

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 09:06 AM

At least hair grows back!
It's probably best you cut it so it can grow back healthier!

Zurg 19-05-2022 10:06 AM

True dat!!!

I am hoping that with a few extra centimeters of growth it won't look as ridiculous as it does now….

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 10:23 AM

Hopefully it grows fast!

Mine is probably coming out because of the years of bleach and dye tbh!

tamobhuuta 19-05-2022 10:40 AM

Sorry to hear about hair disasters.

I need to shower today.

Zurg 19-05-2022 11:18 AM

You can do it, Tamo!!!! Showering ftw!!!!

I had a parcel delivered today. It was from you guys :-) It contained lots of different snacks from the mighty country across the pond. Yum!!! Thank you <3 it couldn't have come at a better time

not_so_insig 19-05-2022 11:33 AM

Aww I am glad it arrived safely. Hope you enjoy the goodies.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 11:33 AM

Yaaaaay zurg!!!
I hope you enjoy them!

I just had an assessment with the carers
He kept trying to get me to accept the carers but i outright refused lol

one_step_closer 19-05-2022 11:45 AM

I'm glad the parcel arrived ok Kat, I hope you like the biscuits (although there is a debate about if Jaffa cakes are biscuits or cakes).

I never do anything with my hair except I cut a big hole in my fringe in primary school so I don't have hair disasters. I hope your hair grows back quickly and healthily Kat.

You can have a shower Tamo, you are a superhero!

Did the carers accept that you don't want them, Beckie?

not_so_insig 19-05-2022 11:48 AM

Hello all btw. I am feeling anxious today.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 11:49 AM

Carer person accepted it eventually.
After a lot of me saying
In response to every attempt to get me to accept them lol

one_step_closer 19-05-2022 11:51 AM

I'm sorry you're feeling anxious today Dawn, do you know why? Do you have safe things that help?

They must have thought you really need them Beckie, are you sure you don't?

not_so_insig 19-05-2022 11:56 AM

Yes I know why Lindsay. It's detailed in my r/v.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 11:58 AM

I am very very sure lindsay!

tamobhuuta 19-05-2022 01:38 PM

I had my shower! Thanks for the encouragement :)

We've got new patio furniture.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 01:48 PM

Well done

Ooh how exciting!

one_step_closer 19-05-2022 05:06 PM

I hope everything goes ok for you tomorrow, Dawn.

I'm glad you're sure, Beckie. Keep on looking after yourself.

Well done, Tamo. Will you be sitting out on the patio lots then?

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 05:15 PM

I will!

How's your day been lindsay?

I've done lots of sorting out.
My bin was emptied today but it's already half full!

one_step_closer 19-05-2022 05:22 PM

You've been on a roll! Does it feel good having got so much done? Well done you. You might need to slow down or your bin will be overflowing!

My day has been ok apart from some difficult feelings and feeling unreal and pressured.

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 05:40 PM

It does feel good!
I want to sort more out but there is nothing left!
Apart from the saucepan drawer but i won't have space in the bin for anything else so that will have to wait!

That sounds tough.
Be kind to yourself!

nonperson 19-05-2022 07:58 PM

Glad you got your parcel, Zurg! Report back on how you found our tasty British treats.

Jaffa cakes are cakes btw. There is no debate. ;-)

It's a beautiful evening here. How's everyone?

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 08:09 PM

It's lovely here too!
Wish i had someone to go to the pub with!
Work have started doing the frozen strawberry daiquiris again. Sooo yummy!

How are you np?

nonperson 19-05-2022 08:11 PM

I wish I had someone to go to a pub with too. Never had a daiquiri (or any cocktail for that matter), aren't they really sweet?

I'm really tired. And kind of cold o.O

Cacoethes 19-05-2022 08:20 PM

Yep they are very sweet!
I like sweet cocktails where you can't taste the alcohol whatsoever!

Cold?!?!?! How?!?!

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 07:46 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 20-05-2022 08:36 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 08:40 AM

I'm ok thanks!


Zurg 20-05-2022 09:21 AM

A bit tired, a bit meh…. But i have a cup of coffee beside me. So it could definetely be a lot worse!!

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 09:26 AM

Yay for coffee!
I also have coffee!

not_so_insig 20-05-2022 11:17 AM

Morning all. I have an appointment this afternoon urgh. Cba to go.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 11:43 AM

my phone is dead. legit dead. and i cant phone samsung because i have no phone! the nearest samsung store is oxford street.
and my intenrnet is being stupid

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 01:52 PM

Hey everyone.

I hope your coffee helped Kat. Have you tried any of the biscuits yet?

I hope your appointment goes well Dawn.

Is your internet behaving yet Beckie?

P.S. I'm not ignoring Beckie's broken phone, we have been chatting about it elsewhere.

I'm feeling really awful today. I told my support worker I don't want to try a woodland thing because it's on the same day as the gym group and I can't cope with such a long day. She's trying to push me to give things a try and it's making me anxious. I went on the bus to go to another town to go to Asda and I was so anxious. Now I just feel like crying. I'm scared of life.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:03 PM

The internet is behaving now!
This phone is super slow. Its annoying!

Sorry to hear that Lindsay
Did you tell her it's making you anxious?

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:08 PM

Are you using the phone for the internet or do you have a laptop or whatever? I would get so impatient with a slow phone. We all expect things to happen straight away now!

I didn't tell her it's making me anxious but she wants me to push past things and give things a try. There's so much stuff going on mentally that she can't see but she just focuses on how i'm going to the gym group so things look good on her side.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:11 PM

I'm using the phone now. I find it easier to type on the phone

There's no point in doing something that's going to make you feel bad! No shame In not being able to push past it. Not everyone can

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:17 PM

Thanks. You can take over my support!

I don't know how you can use your phone to go on the internet. It's too small. Except for things like the Fb app. I much prefer my laptop.

I finally defrosted my freezer.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:22 PM

Would if I could!

I think I'm just used to it now!

Yay well done!

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:27 PM

It wasn't such a task. I just left it off overnight with some towels on the floor and then wiped it out this morning. I haven't put it back on yet because I don't need to. I don't know what to put in it because I'm trying to be healthy but I can't just eat soup for lunch and salad for dinner every day, I need variety.

What have you been up to today?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 03:01 PM

Deciding what to eat every day is hard

Not a lot really.
Post office then asda. Then home and then had to go out again to get this phone!

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 05:10 PM

I had a takeaway because I couldn't face salad. So bad.

You got the things done that you needed to so that's a win of a day.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 05:16 PM

No problem with getting a takeaway once in a while!

That's true!
I just feel.lazy lol

nonperson 20-05-2022 07:47 PM

Evening all

What's up with your phone, Beckie? I thought it was kind of new?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 08:04 PM

Hey np!

It is pretty new! About a year old?
The display has gone. The phone software and everything is fine, it's just the display. An easy but expensive fix!
