Me and the bestie are looking at going to the isle of wight later this year

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 12:50 PM

Better to go to the Isle of Anglesey. Or even to North Wales in general so that you can meet me and Mike :-p

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 12:51 PM

I used to go to wales LOADS as a kid/teenager!
We have family there!
But meeting you and mike would be cool!
Been years since I've seen mike

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 12:56 PM

Lorraine and I are saying that one day we should meet up irl. She's already sent me an picture of Molly today.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 12:57 PM

That would be cool

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 01:18 PM

Yes it would.

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 02:31 PM

My amazon parcel has arrived!

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 03:01 PM

Mine is coming between 5-7 now

one_step_closer 24-04-2022 03:35 PM

I also have an Amazon delivery coming (4.15pm - 6.15pm). We're keeping their business going!

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 03:50 PM

We definitely are!
My emails are basically all from amazon!

one_step_closer 24-04-2022 04:29 PM

Haha! Don't have much of an email social life then?

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 04:37 PM

Apart from when i was looking for jobs! And when i was booking loads of things during my high mood episodes!

one_step_closer 24-04-2022 04:58 PM

Well we don't want any more of that then, I know it must be hard with your mood at times though. But it's ok to treat yourself when you're well and can judge if you can afford things.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 05:14 PM

Certainly not!
It is hard when my mood goes high! I don't feel like i have much control! I probably do but it doesn't feel like it!
Need to reel it in though. I'm broke!
I have some money but it's all for stuff i need to pay for.

one_step_closer 24-04-2022 05:18 PM

That sucks. I think I'm going to be in that position when I pay back whatever I owe to the ESA people. I have no income except pip and I'm already worried that soon I'm not going to be able to pay my rent and council tax. I'm trying not to buy anything I don't need.

one_step_closer 24-04-2022 05:23 PM

Has anyone heard from Lily?

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 05:23 PM

That's so stressful.
Make sure you get the single person discount for council tax. It helps a lot.

All my pip goes on rent. And i still have to top it up a bit more. It sucks!


one_step_closer 24-04-2022 05:26 PM

Lillie double 'L' and 'E' I meant.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 05:40 PM

Ohhh Lillie!
Strange how i just didn't recognise that name AT ALL without the different spelling!

I haven't heard from her. And she hasn't posted on fb since October :/
(Did a quick lil fb stalk)

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 06:01 PM

Oh dear I hope she's ok. I dont have her on Facebook.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 06:03 PM

I hope she's ok too.
I like Lillie

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 06:11 PM

I take it nobody here has her email address or phone number?

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 06:11 PM

I don't.

Pi.R^2 24-04-2022 06:49 PM

Right, cool your jets folks. Lillie is very much alive but is not on RYL. Was just waiting for her to confirm it was OK for me to post about her :)

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 07:05 PM

Thank you Jenna!
Glad she's ok!

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 07:48 PM

Oh thanks Jenna.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 08:24 PM

My amazon parcel is now showing as 'before 10pm'

nonperson 24-04-2022 08:29 PM

I was wondering about Lillie just the other day! Can't remember what it was but something made me think of her. =)

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 09:13 PM

Perhaps you should check outside Beckie? I had that once and they had left it on my doormat and not bothered to knock.

Cacoethes 24-04-2022 09:18 PM

Yeah checked outside. Nothing!

not_so_insig 24-04-2022 10:45 PM

Oh dear that sucks.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 07:11 AM

It did not come!
It's now saying either today or tomorrow :plain:

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 25-04-2022 12:43 PM

Hello :) how goes your day?

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 12:48 PM

Hey! It's ok thanks!
I got all my stuff done before 9:30am and amhps came at 11am so i now have nothing to do for the rest of the day! Apart from waiting to get yesterday's amazon parcel which is apparently coming between 5:45 and 8:45

How are you? Got much planned for today?

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 02:00 PM

I'm glad Lily is about somewhere. Thanks Jenna.

That's rubbish with the parcel Beckie. You're on a roll today getting stuff done. How did it go with the amhps? I hope you can find some nice things to do.

How are you Tamo?

I think I could do with some of your soup Beckie. I got up later than I wanted to so I'm going to have a late lunch but I don't know what to have.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 02:01 PM

Thanks lindsay!
It went pretty well! They were good to talk to at least. And were very understanding.

Aww if you lived closer i would totally have you over for soup!!!

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 02:05 PM

That's good, I'm glad it went well. Makes all the difference.

I'm just about to head to the kitchen to see what I have.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 02:13 PM

It does!

Hopefully you have something yummy!
I really want chocolate but i have no chocolate :(

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 02:26 PM

I had like a toast but not a toastie. Two bits of toast with ham, tomato, and mayo in between them. The mayo tasted a bit weird and I didn't eat it all.

Aww, I kind of want some chocolate too. Have you seen the Slabb adverts on Fb. They sent me one with the wrong filling so they're sending me the right one now and I think it takes ages to come. I was expecting a refund for the wrong one but I had eaten it already anyway.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 02:38 PM

I haven't seen them no!.
Is it good?

I would go out and get chocolate but it's pouring with rain randomly!
And i can't be bothered anyway lol

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 02:40 PM

Yeah they're good. It's chunky chocolate with lots of filling. They do other chocolatey things too but that was what was advertised on Fb.

You'll need to distract yourself from your chocolate craving!

I hope it doesn't rain here. I have my washing out.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 02:45 PM

That sounds good!
When i have money i will try them!

I do!
Watching border force (because when am i not watching border force? XD) and random internetting at the moment!
And wondering if i could be a doctor. Or explore the amazon rainforest!

Eeek! Fingers crossed for no rain!

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 02:48 PM

I never have the TV on during the day but I've seen Border Force before. Don't think I really liked it.

You could be a doctor who also explores the amazon rainforest. Why stick to one!

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 02:58 PM

I rarely actually watch it but i need the background noise!

Good plan!!! :-D

not_so_insig 25-04-2022 03:02 PM

Has your amazon parcel come today Beckie? I had one that said between 6 pm and 8 pm but came at 2.30.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 03:07 PM

Nope not yet!
It's saying 6-9pm now. Ugh!

not_so_insig 25-04-2022 04:32 PM

Are you a prime member Beckie?

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 04:32 PM

Yep i am!

one_step_closer 25-04-2022 04:42 PM

Some Prime deliveries are just like normal deliveries, not good.

Cacoethes 25-04-2022 04:50 PM

It was meant to be next day delivery
Tbf it's rare that amazon mess up like this so i will forgive them!
