You can do it NP!

I'm just waiting for the washing machine to finish. I've just been kicked off the couch by a cat so I'll print some things I wrote for crisis who are visiting me today.

nonperson 29-09-2019 11:41 AM

I'm currently squished to one side of my sofa because of a cat taking up all the space!

Printing things out is a good idea. Are they coming soon?

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 11:48 AM

I think cat is telling you to get up and get dressed.

They should be here at 1pm.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 11:50 AM

I've just wrestled my cat and brushed him and cut his front claws which were super long. They are little monkey aren't they?!

I'm dressed in a tracksuit but at least it's clothes and not pj's. May go and pop some dry shampoo in my hair so I feel a bit better.

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 11:59 AM

Kittens need extra wrestling. Good work. :-)

nonperson 29-09-2019 12:05 PM

They never seem to understand that what we do is in their best interests!

Argh, the rain is coming down sideways.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 12:22 PM

He's now demanding food. Even though it's not remotely near food time.

I have jeans and a jumper on! Feel a bit more like a human for it. And it means my dad won't judge me.

Oh dear np that sounds awful.

nonperson 29-09-2019 12:55 PM

I've also changed out of tracky bottoms into jeans! Go us! Didn't managed to wash hair though so I will have to wear a hat out.

It stopped and was sunny shortly after I posted that. =P Back to drizzle now, just when I need to go out.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 01:58 PM

I dry shampood mine np :-P

Ugh drizzle is so miserable.

I managed to go to 2 shops with my dad and did my own thing in 1 of them. Glad to be back home as the anxiety level was very high.

nonperson 29-09-2019 02:04 PM

I don't find dry shampoo works very well with my hair. Might buy some again though, it's useful to have just in case.

Well done on the shopping. =)

I need to go to the shop soon. Ugh.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 02:07 PM

I find only batiste actually works. The other brands just make my hair white.

Have ypu got a list?

nonperson 29-09-2019 02:11 PM

My hair is quite dark or... the few bits that haven't gone grey anyway... so the whiteness shows up a lot. Although you'd think the grey would mask it...

Yup I have got a list. It's not very long so should be quite quick to accomplish.

not_so_insig 29-09-2019 02:18 PM

Afternoon all. My cat is his usual self today. He ate his food today whereas yesterday he wasn't eating. He seems brighter and purring a lot.

nonperson 29-09-2019 02:21 PM

That's really good news, Dawn. Maybe it was just a really bad hairball.

not_so_insig 29-09-2019 02:56 PM

Yes. I am just keeping an eye on him and taking him to the vet if it happens again. Hopefully it's just an one off.

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 03:23 PM

I'm really glad to hear that Dawn. Give him an extra squish from me if he'll allow it.

Well done for managing the shops Lillie. Did you buy anything?

Have you managed to go out yet NP?

nonperson 29-09-2019 03:41 PM

Yup, just got back. Forgot it was Sunday as well... So busy. x.x

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 03:58 PM

Hey guys

chinahorse 29-09-2019 04:01 PM

Glad your cats improved Dawn.

Well done for getting to the shop np.

Hey beckie.

Got some food lindsay.

tamobhuuta 29-09-2019 05:02 PM

Hi everyone.

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 05:08 PM

Well done NP.

Hi Beckie, how are you?

I hope you got some tasty food Lillie.

Hi Tamo, how is your day going?

tamobhuuta 29-09-2019 05:23 PM

It's ok thanks. Mum's just helping me do my PIP form.

How are you?

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 05:49 PM

Im ok thanks lindsay
How are you?

Those forms are a pain tamo

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 06:24 PM

I agree about the forms.

I'm ????

Are you settling into the ward ok Beckie?

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 06:26 PM

It's ok here
Very loud though

one_step_closer 29-09-2019 06:27 PM

Do you have headphones or ear plugs or something? Loud is annoying.

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 06:39 PM

It is annoying
I do have headphones luckily!

nonperson 29-09-2019 06:45 PM

Evening everyone.

Glad you've got headphones Beckie. Do you know if you're being moved yet?

It's so windy outside!

I'm worried because I've not seen my neighbour's cat all day. They moved on Wednesday and couldn't catch him so I've been feeding him and trying to coax him inside... Really worried. =(

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 06:52 PM

I have to wait for someone to be discharged on my local ward so hopefully next week

That does sound worrying np
I hope he turns up soon

nonperson 29-09-2019 06:59 PM

Hope it's soon.

I've got the back door open and some food out there... It's so windy and horrible. =(

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 07:35 PM

Fingers crossed
It is awful out there

nonperson 29-09-2019 07:46 PM

I've had to close the door as it's getting too wild! He won't use the cat flap for some reason.

The wind is screwing with my internet... The tv is still working ok though, I'm watching Mrs Doubtfire. =)

What are you up to, Beckie?

tamobhuuta 29-09-2019 07:48 PM

I've never watched that film, is it good?

nonperson 29-09-2019 07:50 PM

It's amazing, Tamo! One of Robin Williams' finest. =)

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 07:51 PM

Mrs Doubtfire is a brilliant film!

I'm just watching tv
Some sort of game show is on

nonperson 29-09-2019 07:53 PM

It is, it makes me laugh. The meringue face mask. =P

See if you can change the channel to E4!

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 08:02 PM

So funny!!

Everyone else is watching it unfortunately
It's who wants to be a millionaire now

nonperson 29-09-2019 08:05 PM

I haven't seen that in so long. Find it a bit boring now... Seen it too many times, I suppose.

I knew the answer to the million pound question once! Something about butterflies...

chinahorse 29-09-2019 08:12 PM

Hope it's sooner than my local bed. Which never came and I was discharged from out of area!

Hope he turns up soon np.

I just had a bath and it's the first time bertie has seen one. He looked genuinely concerned for me.

nonperson 29-09-2019 08:17 PM

At least he didn't try to get in too, Lillie. I've heard of cats doing that before, mostly by mistake though.

Cacoethes 29-09-2019 08:24 PM

It is a bit boring

Apparently I'm first in line for the next bed at my local ward so fingers crossed it won't be long!

Ahh bless him Lillie!

nonperson 29-09-2019 08:30 PM

Definitely fingers crossed.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 08:40 PM

Fingers crossed! Being out of area is really really hard.

Why is there nothing on tele?!

nonperson 29-09-2019 08:46 PM

Sunday evening...? They think everyone's getting an early night or something.

Mrs Doubtfire is nearly finished. Dunno what to watch after that.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 08:52 PM

I will be getting an early night as obviously most of the afternoon asleep wasn't quite enough!

I'm watching something about them fixing police cars.

Is it ok to not have dinner if I'm really not hungry for it?

nonperson 29-09-2019 09:23 PM

Well.... you might find you're hungry once you start cooking/eating. Sensible advice would be to try to eat something, even if it's just small.

I haven't had dinner yet either though.

chinahorse 29-09-2019 09:32 PM

I ate some fruit but it made me feel sick :/

You managed sommeat yet?

nonperson 29-09-2019 09:38 PM

Hope the sicky feeling goes away. Well done for eating something. A little bit is better than nothing.

I've not managed anything yet...

nonperson 29-09-2019 09:51 PM

Made a slice of toast...

chinahorse 29-09-2019 10:15 PM

Well done. Toast is nommy.
