Do what you can, Jen. It's ok if you need to rest after everything you've done.

What's the weather like with you, Tamo? It's good to have the choice to stay in if you want. It's been sunny but quite a cold wind here today.

long road 22-02-2023 07:05 PM

I mostly rested but tried a few of the exercises I got taught yesterday. Didn't make it outside but I enjoyed watching the sunset through my window. Going through have pasta for dinner and then try roleplaying in my pathfinder game later.

Cacoethes 22-02-2023 08:04 PM

Crisis never called.
Trial dude called at 1pm, which was during the lunch rush so couldn't answer. Then he sent a text to ask to call when I'm free. I said morning for a reason ffs.

Been offered a promotion at work though. New big boss randomly asked me if I'd like to do my level 2 (supervisor) so i said why not. He said he'll get me a booklet (it's like a course thing, probably similar to an NVQ)
Not really a big deal as quite a few people are supervisors. But it's nice to be asked.

Hope everyone is doing ok!

not_so_insig 22-02-2023 08:29 PM

Thanks for the birthday wishes Jen and Lindsay. I hope you enjoy the book and dvd Lindsay. I tried to get you The Railway Children return but it wouldn't let me for some reason. It's also Judy Cornwell's birthday who played Daisy in Keeping Up Appearances.

Zurg 22-02-2023 10:47 PM

Oi, i nearly missed wishing you a happy birthday, Dawn :)
I hope it has been a good one!!!

Spent the day with my favourite mini humans. They were naughty!!! They decided to gang up on aunty Kat and throw toys at me while giggling hysterically. Rude!!!! ;)

Cacoethes 22-02-2023 11:00 PM

Very rude!

My smoke alarm went off ages ago and the guinea pigs haven't left their hides since! They are fine with most sudden noises but apparently that's their limit!

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 08:59 AM

Morning everyone!

Merry only came out of his hide briefly this morning. Even when I put the food down so I'm a bit worried.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 11:14 AM

Oh dear, I hope he's OK. How are you?

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 11:20 AM

He came out when i put some fresh hay in so hopefully he's just being moody.

I'm ok. In costa before dentist at 11.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 11:23 AM

I've got dinosaur shaped crumpets so life is pretty good.

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 11:30 AM

Oooh nice!

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 11:40 AM

And I've had a hair wash so feeling proud of myself. I've got doctors on the telly to look forward to. Do you have any plans after the dentist?

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 11:53 AM

Well done.

I have a joint meeting with cpn and crisis (to be discharged from crisis) need to clean out the boys and have taekwondo. Oh, also need to put washing away, go to asda/poundland and shower. And pharmacy. And hope that the trial guy doesn't call back when I'm doing these things.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 12:03 PM

I hope all those things go well. And that the trial guy rings at a good time!

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 12:07 PM

Thanks. He probably won't.

A lady was smoking outside the front door of the dentist and it stank. Now she's come in. I feel really sorry for the dentist that has to look in her mouth! Bleaugh.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 12:21 PM

I've seen the pictures on cigarette packets of a smoker's teeth!

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 12:41 PM

Yep! It's not great!
I am finished and have 2 more appointments. For a crown and filling i think.
23rd march and 18th april.
I wanted to get coffee but it's 10 mins to the bus and there are queues in all the coffee shops. Sad times.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 01:02 PM

Sad times: for the teeth and the coffee situations.

one_step_closer 23-02-2023 01:55 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope your day goes well, Beckie and you get what you need from it. If you think you still need crisis or something else please tell them.

Well done with what you've managed, Tamo. Sounds like a good day so far, I hope it continues.

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 02:03 PM

Even if I still wanted crisis, they wouldn't listen!
I'm home now. About to clean out the boys!
I somehow ended up in aldi earlier. I don't remember intending to go there but I was suddenly in the veg aisle. Weird.

How's your day going lindsay.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 02:13 PM

Did you buy anything Cacoethes?

How are you osc? What are you up to?

one_step_closer 23-02-2023 02:14 PM

I do hope they will surprise you and listen. When is your meeting? Your legs must have been doing the thinking to take you to Aldi. I hope the fluffies appreciate a nice clean living area.

I've washed my hair and hoovered. Supposed to exercise at 2pm and make stuffed pepper for dinner but I don't know if I'll be bothered. Not feeling too motivated today.

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 02:15 PM

Well done. Where are you meant to be exercising?

one_step_closer 23-02-2023 02:17 PM

Just at home. Home to me doesn't equal exercising but I'm trying to do some extra small things as well as the gym group as the support worker is encouraging us to do.

What are you getting up to now?

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 02:47 PM

I need a lot of motivation to do exercise! I'm just watching doctors.

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 03:21 PM

Yep! Bought some veg for the piggies. And a sandwich for me. I would have bought the high protein chocolate mousse but they didn't have any. Sad times.

My meeting is at 3pm.
The boys always love a clean cage!

Exercising at home is always hard to do!
Stuffed pepper sounds great though

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 05:04 PM

What are people up to?

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 05:18 PM

I'm watching scrubs.
Have a couple of cauliflower cheese grills in the oven.


one_step_closer 23-02-2023 05:48 PM

I love cauliflower cheese grills.

Did you enjoy Doctors, Tamo?

I managed to do some exercise and make stuffed pepper for my dinner.

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 05:56 PM

They were soooo good!

Well done!

one_step_closer 23-02-2023 05:57 PM


You still watching Scrubs?

Cacoethes 23-02-2023 06:02 PM

Need to get ready for taekwondo soon

tamobhuuta 23-02-2023 10:24 PM

Well done osc.

I did enjoy doctors.

Cacoethes 24-02-2023 09:08 AM

Morning everyone!

Pi.R^2 24-02-2023 09:24 AM

Morning Beckie! How are you today?

Cacoethes 24-02-2023 09:43 AM

I'm ok thanks. Bit groggy.
How are you?

Pi.R^2 24-02-2023 09:51 AM

Hope you feel a bit less groggy soon! I'm OK, just doing the weekly tidy of the house so that the cleaner doesn't think we live in squalor :P

Cacoethes 24-02-2023 09:57 AM


Haha! Have fun!
I need to do a big clean on sunday for my inspection on Monday.
The house is always tidy, it's just hay and dust!
And also some random purple splotches from when I dyed my hair....

tamobhuuta 24-02-2023 11:20 AM

Hi Pi, hi Cacoethes. Have fun with your cleaning! I've got to get birthday cards for my brother in law later. Right now I'm having a cup of tea with family.

Cacoethes 24-02-2023 11:23 AM

Hope you have a good day!

Ugh, tidy people. Does it just come naturally to you or do you have to work really hard to keep it tidy?

Enjoy your tea and family time tamo :)

Cacoethes 24-02-2023 11:32 AM

I just don't like clutter!
So it comes naturally.
Even when I went over to my mum's, I couldn't resist cleaning the microwave because it was awful (she couldn't reach it to clean it) XD
I never used to be like this. It came with my random personality change last year XD

long road 24-02-2023 12:25 PM

*pops head in*
Hello Everyone!

long road 24-02-2023 01:28 PM

Did my morning routine on time and now I am exhausted so back lying on my bed.

one_step_closer 24-02-2023 01:52 PM

Hey people.

Have fun with your tidying, Jenna!

Hi Jen, well done with doing your morning routine. Will you be doing anything else after your rest?

I hope everyone has a good day.

tamobhuuta 24-02-2023 02:00 PM

Hi long road, hi osc.

one_step_closer 24-02-2023 03:34 PM

Hi Tamo. How is your day going?

long road 24-02-2023 03:46 PM

I ended up having a nap. This afternoon no plans but I need to do my physio exercises at some point. This evening I am roleplaying.

one_step_closer 24-02-2023 03:52 PM

Have you got a lot of exercises to do? I'm so bad with doing mine.

tamobhuuta 24-02-2023 04:14 PM

I had a good time choosing birthday cards. From me I chose one with a frog.

I hope you have fun role-playing long road.

What are you up to osc?
