Yeah they're ok if you're expecting them or are protected by walls but not so fun if you're not. =)

One made me jump at the petrol pump the other day. Hope no one noticed because I made a noise and visibly jolted.

Cacoethes 07-11-2020 07:44 PM


Oh bless you! I'm sure everyone else was equally shocked by it so wouldn't be surprised if you jumped!

nonperson 07-11-2020 07:47 PM

I hope so.

Did you have a good day despite the early start and fireworks?

Cacoethes 07-11-2020 07:56 PM

Yes I did thanks :)
We didn't do a lot, just mooched about, watched Moana, played a bit of Mario Kart on the old Nintendo 64 which is still going strong!
It was just nice to be together for the day

nonperson 07-11-2020 08:11 PM

I bet. Sometimes mooching days are the best. =)

Cacoethes 07-11-2020 08:17 PM

Very true :)

What have you been up to today?

nonperson 07-11-2020 11:13 PM

Absolutely F all today. Went for a walk this evening and just got back from Asda.

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 11:04 AM

Morning everyone x

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 11:29 AM


How are you?

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 11:36 AM

I'm ok thanks, you?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 11:53 AM

Not bad thanks. Sleepy!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 11:57 AM

I was sleepy too but now I'm having tea with parents and sister so I'm waking up.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 11:59 AM

That's good :)
I've had a couple of coffees so I should start to wake up!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 12:16 PM

Posh coffee or instant?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 12:19 PM

Just instant coffee
My family have posh coffee and I don't know how to do it!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 12:33 PM

Our L has a posh machine but i don't know how to work it.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 12:40 PM

I'd love a coffee machine but I have no space for one and I can't afford one anyway!!

one_step_closer 08-11-2020 12:58 PM

Hey everyone. I woke up later than usual this morning.

Are you all feeling more awake with your various drinks now?

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 01:00 PM

I'm definitely feeling a bit more awake. How are you?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 01:02 PM

Hi lindsay!

I am feeling more awake now thanks

How are you?

The Worst Witch 08-11-2020 01:03 PM

Hello everyone. I suck at keeping in touch, sorry.

NP, even though you posted your name on your r/v thread I still think of you as NP. Hope this is ok!

Hey Lindsay, Tamo and Beckie. How are you all?

one_step_closer 08-11-2020 01:05 PM

I have a squishy snoring cat on my lap but my ankle is going numb. I'm a bit behind with my usual Sunday housework so need to have some lunch and get on with it.

one_step_closer 08-11-2020 01:08 PM

Sneaky bean! Nice to see you. How are you?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 01:12 PM

Hi Alison!
I'm ok thanks. How are you?

You can't move a sleeping cat lindsay.
It's the law!

nonperson 08-11-2020 03:03 PM

That's absolutely fine, Alison. NP will always be my forum name. =)

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 03:37 PM

Today is going sooo slowly!

nonperson 08-11-2020 03:46 PM

I agree, it felt like it should have been much later in the afternoon when I finally got up this morning. Might go back to sleep. =/

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 03:47 PM

It's sunday. Naps are allowed!

nonperson 08-11-2020 03:50 PM

And staying in pyjamas all day.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 03:54 PM

I nearly did that but thought I'd better appear functional for the carers!

nonperson 08-11-2020 03:55 PM

Would they judge you negatively? =/

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 04:00 PM

I'm not sure. But don't want to risk it!
I'm only in jogging bottoms and a t shirt so not TOO functional :p

yoyogirl 08-11-2020 04:26 PM

My head is hurting right now, theres so much i have to do and there's so little time to do it.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 06:14 PM

It's finally nearing the end of this boring, boring day!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 06:17 PM

I feel like I've had an active day but most people would say I've done nothing.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 06:22 PM

What have you been up to today tamo?

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 06:27 PM

I've got dressed, listened to music, prayed, read, practiced mindfulness, colouring, exercise, house work, self soothing, watched TV, did a wordsearch.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 06:37 PM

Sounds good :)

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 06:39 PM

It feels so much! I'm ready for bed.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 06:52 PM

Not too long until bedtime!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 06:55 PM

I would just go to bed now but we've got family dinner at 7. But the food might perk me up :) do you have any plans for dinner?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 07:03 PM

What are you having?

I'm having jacket potato and beans!

not_so_insig 08-11-2020 07:38 PM

Any cheese Beckie?

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 07:45 PM

No cheese unfortunately. It's a bit too expensive for me at the moment!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 07:45 PM

I love jacket potatoes. Us veggies are having quiche, the meat eaters are having steak.

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 07:57 PM

Can't beat a good jacket spud!

Sounds lovely!

tamobhuuta 08-11-2020 08:04 PM

My mum made the quiche :)

Cacoethes 08-11-2020 08:20 PM

Homemade quiche is the best

tamobhuuta 09-11-2020 11:19 AM

Morning everybody. How were your nights?

My job for today is to gef a phone appointment with a GP. I have delegated this to my dad.

Cacoethes 09-11-2020 11:22 AM

I've heard getting a phone appointment is really difficult at the moment!
