I'm glad your evening was great :)

How are you insig?

I'm feeling sad because my sister might be sectioned.

Cacoethes 23-05-2022 10:49 AM

Thank you!

Ah that's never good tamo.
I hope she recovers quickly

tamobhuuta 23-05-2022 10:57 AM

Thanks, I'm trying to think positively.

What are you up to today?

Cacoethes 23-05-2022 11:09 AM

That's good

I have work :(
Really not feeling it today!

tamobhuuta 23-05-2022 11:38 AM

Hopefully it will be better than expected.

Zurg 23-05-2022 11:58 AM


A concert and a long trip home AND then work the next day???!!?!!? My goodness!!! I am pooped on your behalf, Beckie!! I hope it was awesome. I wish they'd play a concert near me. Preferably in my city, in my country. Ahh, heck, make it in my backyard!! What could possibly go wrong???

I hope you'll be okay Tamo. At least your sister Will be safer if she's in hospital and there Will be people who can help her in a different Way than you and your family can. Xx

one_step_closer 23-05-2022 01:06 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I'm so glad you had a good time Beckie, did you get some sleep? I hope you get on ok at work. Hopefully you'll catch up on sleep tonight.

Hi Dawn, how are you?

I hope everything turns out for the best with your sister and you and your family, Tamo.

What sort of music do you like Kat? I feel like I've asked you this before so apologies if I have.

tamobhuuta 23-05-2022 01:42 PM

My sister is coming home which is lovely of course but I am still worried about her safety. IP wouldn't keep her safe of help her eating so could've made things worse.

not_so_insig 23-05-2022 02:55 PM

Afternoon all. I had the taste of bile before in my mouth but that appears to have gone. I had a coughing fit before so perhaps they were related.

one_step_closer 23-05-2022 04:59 PM

You and your family are always there for your sister, Tamo. I hope she'll be ok and that you are looking after yourself.

Poor you Dawn, bile tastes awful. I hope you're ok.

not_so_insig 23-05-2022 06:04 PM

Yes I am ok now I got rid of the taste. Hopefully it's just an one off but if it continues I will phone the doctors.

Cacoethes 23-05-2022 06:25 PM

I am done with work!
Of all the days NOT to finish early, it had to be today!
Waiting for the bus. I was talked into having Korean chicken wings which were absolutely amazing!

Hope everyone is good!

not_so_insig 23-05-2022 08:30 PM

Hope you're home by now Beckie.

Cacoethes 24-05-2022 08:50 AM

Thanks dawn!
I was asleep at the time you posted lol

Morning everyone!
I had a lie in! As well as going to bed super early!
Think I got about 12 hours sleep!

one_step_closer 24-05-2022 11:05 AM

That's some good sleep Beckie. Hope it's prepared you for today. What are you getting up to today?

not_so_insig 24-05-2022 11:16 AM

Hello all.

tamobhuuta 24-05-2022 11:17 AM

Hi Cacoethes, hi osc.

I only got up because I got so much drool on my duvet.

Cacoethes 24-05-2022 11:43 AM

Hey guys!

All I have to do today is vape shop, pharmacy (both done) washing is on so will put that away when it's done. And put meds in dosset box. And glow beatz at 7:30!

not_so_insig 24-05-2022 01:07 PM

I have tesco shopping order coming today. Plus my parents this evening.

tamobhuuta 24-05-2022 03:55 PM

I am watching chamber of secrets.

one_step_closer 24-05-2022 04:59 PM

Sounds like you all have had things to do. Success?

I had the gym group this afternoon.

Cacoethes 24-05-2022 05:12 PM

How was it Lindsay?

Zurg 24-05-2022 06:26 PM

….since it is a gym group, which probably takes place at a gym, my guess is it was awful!!!!

Cacoethes 24-05-2022 06:31 PM

Well, yeah lol!

I like exercise but always hated the gym!

Zurg 24-05-2022 07:13 PM

I felt really out of place at the gym. I didn't see many like me, who actually tried to lose weight. But i saw a lot of very fit people looking at their phones and in the mirrors while checking themselves and other fit people out…. Especially the young men. Always standing in front of the full body mirrors, flexing their muscles.
I am too much of an old, grumpy lady to appreciate this kind of setting o_O

Cacoethes 24-05-2022 07:24 PM

Yeah I found that too!

Arrived at glow beatz early so I could get a spot at the back! I have succeeded!

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 08:05 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 25-05-2022 10:41 AM

I sit at the back in church.

How are you?

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 10:43 AM

I'm good thanks!
Excited for Antwerp!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 25-05-2022 10:47 AM

I hope you enjoy it :)

I'm ok, looking forward to doctors later.

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 10:48 AM

Thank you!

That's good
Always good to have something to look forward to!

tamobhuuta 25-05-2022 10:53 AM

Lol yeah. Also I am treating myself by watching a Harry Potter film everyday

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 11:10 AM

Which one is it today?

one_step_closer 25-05-2022 11:31 AM

Morning everyone.

When's Antwerp Beckie?

Sounds like a nice treat Tamo, enjoy. You'll need to think of other treats when you finish them.

There are some mirror looking guys in the gym but they don't bother me. I generally dislike the gym though.

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 11:37 AM

Hey Lindsay!

The eurostar is at 3:04
But I'm on the train to st Pancras now because they recommend you get there 90-120 mins early to go through security.

Well done for still going then Lindsay!

one_step_closer 25-05-2022 11:42 AM

Is there something there you're going to see or is it just a short trip? How long are you away for?

My support worker wouldn't let me away with not going to the gym.

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 12:53 PM

I'm going to see Russell Howard! It's tomorrow at 8pm! Coming back on Friday.
Antwerp is apparently very small so I'll be able to get some touristy stuff done too!

I guess It's good to have someone to motivate you!
Do you get the exercise serotonin rush?
I Always do when I do glow beatz!

tamobhuuta 25-05-2022 02:34 PM

Prisoner of Azkaban :)

I quite like Russell Howard.

I like dancing but other forms of exercise bore me.

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 02:48 PM

Prisoner of Azkaban is one of my favourites!

I love Russell Howard. He's hilarious!

Im the same tamo

not_so_insig 25-05-2022 03:50 PM

Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 25-05-2022 04:04 PM

Hi insig, how are you?

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 04:16 PM

I'm in France :-D

Zurg 25-05-2022 04:35 PM

Merci, oui, le petite brie :-D

…. That was about all the things i can say in french. But hey, it's france!!! You should get a baguette with brie!!!! Isn't that something you're supposed to eat while there???

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 04:43 PM

Only stopped briefly at lille.
I'm in Belgium now! Not long until Brussels!
Then will have to locate a train to Antwerp!

one_step_closer 25-05-2022 05:06 PM

I hope you enjoy your trip Beckie. So much travelling!

I never feel a rush when I've finished my workout but I might not be working hard enough.

How are you both today Dawn and Kat?

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 05:50 PM

Thank you!
Arrived at Brussels and now on the train to Antwerp!

Maybe it's just not the right kind of exercise for you?
It's always better if you enjoy it!

Zurg 25-05-2022 07:20 PM

I'm okay Lindsay. Felt quite ill yesterday. Stomach trouble. Happens a lot. So i've kind of taken it easy today. Until this evening when the 'i want to throw stuff out'-monster overtoook me.
I am preparing for getting a bunny. Long story short; my flat is small and already full of pets. I ain't moving anytime soon!!!! I just finished paying back the loan i took in the bank so i could move in here. It has taken me close to 5 years to pay back. When you don't have a big income, it is quite expensive to take a loan.
Anyways, trying to work out where to make space for a cage so bun-buns has a place to retreat when he/she gets sick of being petted and smoochied. A bit difficult. I have two big bird cages already. And my books take up a lot of space too. As does my couch. But i can't part with that yet because it's a really comfy couch…..

#first world bunny problems

How are you tonight, Lindsay???

Hope you Will have fun Beckie!!!

Cacoethes 25-05-2022 07:43 PM

I'm glad you managed to take it easy today zurg, well, until the wanting to throw stuff out thing! I get that too!
A bunny is very exciting!

Thank you! I'm at the hotel now!

Zurg 25-05-2022 08:35 PM

I love hotels!!! Well, i used to….. i hear you're not allowed to smoke/vape in them anymore. Which is a kind of negativity i personally don't need in my life!!!,

Cacoethes 26-05-2022 08:01 AM

No you're not! Does kind of suck!

Morning everyone!
