Ah ok!
It's good to get these things done
How are you feeling today?

chinahorse 19-12-2020 09:42 AM

Good morning folks :-) How goes it?

I absolutely definitely need to wrap at least my nannies christmas gifts and then go to town and post them. And shower first and I just wanna stay in bed even though I have back ache.

tamobhuuta 19-12-2020 10:32 AM

Hi china, hope things go well today and the back pain eases off.

I am ok, just having breakfast. My godmother is coming by later to say hi and drop off Christmas stuff.

one_step_closer 19-12-2020 11:27 AM

Morning everyone.

Nice to see you Lillie. I hope you can get everything done. Bed can make back ache worse sometimes I think.

Is your godmother going to stay for a little while Tamo?

nonperson 19-12-2020 11:33 AM

Happy birthday, Lindsay! What cake are you going to demolish? =)

And hullo Lillie and Tamo and everyone else too.

Cacoethes 19-12-2020 12:27 PM

Afternoon guys

Happy birthday Lindsay!

not_so_insig 19-12-2020 01:36 PM

Happy birthday Lindsay!

one_step_closer 19-12-2020 01:46 PM

Thank you all. I got a chocolate cake. Sick of it already though! Being 34 sounds a bit strange and nope. I've been ok with other years but I don't feel like I am 34 right now.

How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 19-12-2020 02:00 PM

Ooo chocolate cake! I am jealous!
It's only a number. It doesn't really mean anything

I'm in a bad mood today
The nurses are being really weird with me

nonperson 19-12-2020 02:21 PM

The new number always sounds weird at first but as ages go 34 isn't a bad one. It is just a number.

I'm also jealous of chocolate cake!

Oh boo for bad mood.

I feel a bit lost today. Trying to write a shopping list for later (chocolate cake might go on it now).

Cacoethes 19-12-2020 02:29 PM

Chocolate cake should be on every shopping list!

nonperson 19-12-2020 03:00 PM

That is very true.

Cacoethes 19-12-2020 03:13 PM


I've been let in my room for an hour.
Well, only got 15 minutes left now D:

tamobhuuta 19-12-2020 03:16 PM

Happy birthday osc!

nonperson 19-12-2020 04:15 PM

Hope you enjoyed it, Beckie.

It's got very dark and late all of a sudden. o.o

yoyogirl 19-12-2020 04:19 PM

Damn I am just falling asleep at the moment so drowsy and a feeling a bit low at the moment

nonperson 19-12-2020 04:22 PM

Getting up and moving around a bit usually helps with the drowsiness.

Speaking of which, I should get my backside off the sofa and go back to work...

one_step_closer 19-12-2020 05:03 PM

I'm sick of the chocolate cake already. Wish I could share it with you all.

nonperson 19-12-2020 05:05 PM

What about saving the rest for tomorrow?

one_step_closer 19-12-2020 05:07 PM

I probably will save the rest for tomorrow.

Did you get work things sorted NP?

nonperson 19-12-2020 05:19 PM

Good plan.

Yup, I'm home and warm and dry again now. Still trying to decide what I need to put on my shopping list other than cake though. >.>

Cacoethes 19-12-2020 08:36 PM

Fruit? Vegetables? Other healthy grown up stuff?

nonperson 19-12-2020 10:25 PM

Just got back. I didn't get cake in the end but did get some healthy fruity vegetably grown up stuff!

And mince pies and brandy cream. >.>

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 10:28 AM

Well done np!

Mmm mince pies and brandy cream!

Morning everyone
I was once again rudely awakened for meds and then kicked out of my room :plain:

one_step_closer 20-12-2020 10:40 AM

Morning Beckie and hi to everyone else when you arrive.

That is so annoying Beckie. Did you at least get some sleep?

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 10:46 AM

Hi lindsay
How are you?

It is annoying.
I had a good sleep but because of the sleeping meds, I find it difficult to wake up in the morning

one_step_closer 20-12-2020 10:53 AM

Yeah, it's much better to wake up naturally and get up slowly. Is there a different time you'd be allowed to take the sleeping meds if they want you out of bed earlier? Did they at least let you wake up a bit before they told you to go out of your room?

I'm feeling really awful, but that's not for here.

What will you do today?

tamobhuuta 20-12-2020 10:53 AM

I got to sleep in under an hour, I think thanks to PRN earlier in the day.

one_step_closer 20-12-2020 10:56 AM

That's good Tamo, did you have a good sleep overall?

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 11:07 AM

No I have to take the sleeping meds at meds time. I'm always one of the first in the queue so I take them as early as possible.
And no, they said I had to get out of my room that minute and they stood there until I got up.

Sorry you're feeling so awful lindsay
Hugs if ok

I've just put some washing on but that's about it apart from watching criminal minds

That's good tamo

nonperson 20-12-2020 11:27 AM

Hi everyone. <3

Turns out the brandy cream is actually spiced rum cream... Not sure how I feel about that. Should have looked properly at what I was picking up I suppose. >=/

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 11:28 AM

Hey np :)

Hmmm. Worth a try I suppose!

nonperson 20-12-2020 11:46 AM

Hey Beckie.

It's hardly a disaster but is kinda like the final straw of disappointment on the camel's back at the moment! I'm sure it'll be nice.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 12:36 PM

Yeah I get that
I’m sure it will be lovely anyway!

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 01:14 PM

Wales is officially in tier 4 lockdown. It started at midnight. Thankfully as a single vulnerable person I can see my parents over Christmas.

Beckie Lorraine agrees that Smooth radio is annoying and feels sorry for you having to put up with it.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 01:35 PM

Yep us too Dawn
I would be allowed to go to my mum's if I was at home but as I'm here nobody knows.

Aww I miss Lorraine
Smooth radio is awful

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 02:18 PM

She misses here too. Hopefully you'll still be allowed out on Christmas day as you have been doing so well Beckie.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 02:21 PM

Thanks Dawn
We'll find out tomorrow when management are about

Are you up to much today?

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 02:31 PM

No I am not. Catching up with TV i missed/recorded. All the shops and pubs are shut here so it's not like I am able to go out.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 02:32 PM

Yeah that's true
I get why we have to have the whole tier 4 thing but it's a really inconvenient time for it!

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 02:36 PM

Yes it would be better if they postponed it to boxing day.

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 02:40 PM

Also it would be better if they did different tiers for different parts of Wales. Generally speaking the North has lower rates than the South yet the first minister is punishing the whole of Wales.

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 02:53 PM

All the other lockdown announcements have been at least a week later than announced so it's weird that this one has been so sudden

Yeah it's not fair really

nonperson 20-12-2020 03:17 PM

In better news, I just watched the Strictly final. OMG, won't spoil anything just incase any one else does watch it and hasn't seen it yet...

Beckie, you'll be pleased with who won, like I was =D

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 03:22 PM

I know who won!
I saw it on fb!

not_so_insig 20-12-2020 03:27 PM

I saw it too.

nonperson 20-12-2020 03:36 PM

I had to rapidly turn the news off this morning as they were about to spoil it. And luckily didn't check Facebook or I'm sure I'd have accidentally seen it on there.

I'm so pleased he won. It made me very happy. =)

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 03:47 PM

I was happy too!
Even though I don't watch it!

nonperson 20-12-2020 03:58 PM

You don't need to watch it to know he's a winner. =P

Cacoethes 20-12-2020 03:59 PM

Very true!
