Ooo bean chilli!

I had a hair wash, did mindfulness, watched doctors, prayed a bit, sorted out my meds for the week. Time for a cup of tea now!

not_so_insig 06-02-2023 04:15 PM

Yes I think something bean based is in order. I have finished doing it now. My pantry is now tidy. It felt good to throw away stuff I no longer need.

one_step_closer 06-02-2023 05:03 PM

Well done, Dawn. I hope it doesn't fill up again too quickly.

That's a good list of things to have done, Tamo. Well done. I hope you enjoyed your tea. What will you be doing this evening?

not_so_insig 06-02-2023 05:27 PM

Thanks Lindsay.

Cacoethes 06-02-2023 06:48 PM

Hey guys!
I was at work today. And my friend happened to be driving past when I was walking home (she lives near work) so she spotted me and gave me a lift home. Which was so lovely of her!

Pi.R^2 06-02-2023 06:54 PM

Glad you got a lift Beckie! How was work?

Cacoethes 06-02-2023 06:58 PM

Was ok thanks!
Pretty standard monday!
The highlight of my day was getting some new wine glasses and cracker glasses! Love a shiny new glass. And new spoons.
What is my life?

How be you?

Pi.R^2 06-02-2023 07:31 PM

Cracker glasses? Who's drinking crackers from a glass??

Relatable though, like when we get a stationery order in :P

Cacoethes 06-02-2023 07:58 PM

Nah. It's just a standard glass for like regular soft drinks and tap water and stuff! I think cracker is the brand. Our juices are 'cracker' so maybe something to do with that!

No one told me adulthood is so boring!
You should see us when we get the dog treats in!
We have a lady that makes them. Usually seasonally themed! Like for Christmas we had xmas pudding and trees etc. They are adorable

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 08:06 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 10:09 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 10:17 AM

I'm ok thanks!

Was -2 when i got up this morning!
Is now 2 but still very foggy!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 10:48 AM

I'm ok. Having tea with family. Frosty here. Do you have any plans for today?

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 11:17 AM


I've just been to get my nail fixed (it chipped on Saturday), I have a parcel coming and also double pilates.
So not as busy as a normal Tuesday! Already bored. Lol

How about you?

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 11:21 AM

Just my normal day - including watching doctors of course!

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 11:23 AM

Morning people.

The weather is calm here. Not too cold. Definitely no fog or frost.

Did you enjoy your tea, Tamo. Doing anything with your day?

Will you be in when the parcel is due to arrive, Beckie? I have 5 Easter eggs coming at some time before 8pm. I did keep buying them and cancelling them but in the end there was no further cancel button. I was hoping they'd arrive early so I could give them to the people in the gym group. I definitely won't be able to hold on to them for next week without eating them!

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 11:24 AM

Ninja, Tamo.

I hope you enjoy Doctors, although I know you always do! How long has that show been running?

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 11:27 AM

Hey lindsay!

I'm not sure.
Yodel have not given me a time. Just that it is out for delivery, which is annoying. But i don't have to go out again until 3:15 so fingers crossed!

Life is short, eat the eggs!

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 11:33 AM

That is annoying. I like Amazon deliveries at the point where they're able to show you a map and how many stops it is until the delivery to get to you. What usually happens if you're not in?

I don't want to eat 5 medium sized chocolate eggs! Well I do but just well, don't!

Oh and in other news Crookshanks has a burst anal gland again. This has happened a few times now. Maybe it's because he's old.

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 11:40 AM

But tbh, even if I did know the time, I'm not going to change my plans! So ultimately it doesn't matter. Because I'll be out when I'm out!
There's no safe place option but I've redirected to my neighbour if one of them is in. It should fit through the letterbox but sometimes they won't do that, depending on instructions from the company.

Fair enough!

Oh no! Poor crookshanks

not_so_insig 07-02-2023 01:20 PM

Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 01:45 PM

Sorry Crookshanks is poorly :(

I think doctors started in 2000

not_so_insig 07-02-2023 01:51 PM

Doctors started on 26 March 2000 so just over a month to it's 23rd birthday.

long road 07-02-2023 01:58 PM

Hey everyone, I did ok at start of today woke up, had a shower and got outside for a bit. But my mood is really going downhill now. Not sure what to do about it am on sofa, with a blanket, watching TV trying to convince myself I am ok.

not_so_insig 07-02-2023 02:02 PM

Sorry you're feeling rough Jen. I would suggest a bath but I don't want to sound like the crisis team :-P

long road 07-02-2023 02:23 PM

:p I am considering a nap, I think it might help me reset

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 02:46 PM

I have my parcel.
Think I need a lie down after that excitement :tongue2:

Nap if you need to jen!

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 03:50 PM

I find lying down with an audiobook or music helps long road.

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 04:34 PM

The Easter eggs that arrived are actually small ones, false advertising.

I hope you're looking after yourself, Jen.

tamobhuuta 07-02-2023 04:42 PM

How frustrating osc!

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 04:51 PM

It just means they were a waste of money, but I'm glad they're small so there's less to eat.

How is your day going, Tamo?

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 04:57 PM

I have to get up and pee but Crookshanks is siting on my lap.

long road 07-02-2023 05:28 PM

Hey everyone thanks for supportiveness.

I had a nap. Lay down listening to a podcast and drifted off. Woken up feeling quite groggy and with a bit of a headache so probably going to stay in bed though. Definitely needed the rest.

Hope Crookshanks has moved by now OSC!

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 05:34 PM

Well done for doing what you need to do.

Yes, he got up when it was his dinner time!

long road 07-02-2023 05:45 PM

Dinner time is a great motivator! Glad you have been set free

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 05:49 PM

He's back on my lap now. He spends a lot of time there!

Are you just resting or doing something in bed?

long road 07-02-2023 05:57 PM

Cat cuddles are nice, being stuck not able to pee is not nice so that's what I meant by the freedom.

Mostly just resting. I have read a couple of news articles. Considering seeing if there is anything I feel like watching on you tube.

one_step_closer 07-02-2023 05:59 PM

Do you have channels that you follow on YouTube?

I hope you have a peaceful evening and sleep well tonight.

I'm just heading offline to read then watch TV.

long road 07-02-2023 06:01 PM

Yeah I subscribe to a few different channels. Mainly a mix of history ones, travel ones and music.

I hope you have a good evening reading and watching TV.

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 06:23 PM

Amazon can be tricky with sizing!
I always read reviews, that's usually a good indicator!

Zurg 07-02-2023 06:40 PM

If i had ordered some normal sized Easter eggs and they turned out to be to the small-ish side, i Think i'd have gone grumpy and eaten all of them in one go to try to cheer myself up…
I'll just see myself out now ;)

Cacoethes 07-02-2023 07:07 PM

Solid plan

Cacoethes 08-02-2023 06:59 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 08-02-2023 10:08 AM

Morning :) how are you? I'm doing ok at this daily shower thing!

Cacoethes 08-02-2023 10:39 AM


I'm ok. In london. Being emotional support for my friends appointment

tamobhuuta 08-02-2023 11:10 AM

That's kind. Is it going OK?
My godmother is coming round later.

long road 08-02-2023 12:58 PM

Good work on daily shower thing Tamo. Routines are hard work but they can pay off. Are you finding the showers helpful?

Hope your friends appointment goes well Beckie. Lovely of you to be there for them. I have had friends do it for me before and it meant a lot.

I am doing well on getting up in the morning and getting outside to my garden before lunch. This is fifth day in a row for me. Both proud and kind of surprised I am managing it!

Back inside now and on my sofs watching more numb3rs, my crime TV show from 2000's where they use maths almost like it's a magic power.

tamobhuuta 08-02-2023 01:20 PM

Not helpful really, but it makes people around me happy!

Well done long Road.

Cacoethes 08-02-2023 01:35 PM

Yes it was fine.
We went to the horror show (a museum exhibit thing) near southbank afterwards. Was very trippy and weird!
Waiting for train home now. We finally managed to exchange birthday presents! (Our birthdays were October!) Because we're both so busy all the time.

Regular showering is good!

Well done for managing to get up and do gardening jen!

Ugh, maths!

one_step_closer 08-02-2023 02:22 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Well done with having a shower, Tamo. I know it can be hard for you, you're doing so well. I hope you enjoy seeing your godmother.

You're a good friend, Beckie. I'm glad you also finally managed to exchange birthday gifts! What are you doing when you get home?

Well done, Jen. You're doing brilliantly. I hope it's helping you.
