That's quite an unpleasant combination to imagine!

Zurg 13-06-2022 06:51 PM

Lol, Beckie and NP :D

We have a food/cooking show on tv in Denmark in which the food enthusiasts once combined two very odd things; ice cream and fish. Basically they created an ice cream with the taste of the fish that was caught around that particular part of the country. Most strange!!!
(For the curious people out there, they reported that they did not really enjoy their own ice cream with fish flavour ;-))

nonperson 13-06-2022 07:01 PM

I think where you said "once combined" kinda gives away that it wasn't a successful flavour of icecream!

Cacoethes 13-06-2022 07:18 PM

that is a very odd idea for a show!

Zurg 13-06-2022 08:21 PM

Hehe NP, most of the people passing them by when they gave away free taste samples kindly declined the fish flavoured ice cream. Both understandable and totally forgiveable in my book ;-)

Cacoethes 13-06-2022 08:23 PM

i think i'd probably try it just to say i had!

I was not emotionally ready for this, but then I am the same girl who made chocolate and apple pasta crumble once so maybe I can't talk...

Beckie, hope work went well and tamo, I hope you enjoyed your post-medical appointment latte!

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 07:13 AM

chocolate and apple pasta crumble???
i NEED to know the story behind that!

morning everyone!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 10:14 AM

Hello all. I am feeling a tiny bit better today. Not much but it's better than nothing.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 10:38 AM

that's good. it'll take time

my old sofa has been taken away.
pharmacy didn't have my meds (prescription hadn't been sent through) so i'll have to go back tomorrow before work.

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 10:44 AM

That sucks about the pharmacy. Hopefully they will have your meds when you next call.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 10:47 AM

they're usually very good so I'm sure they will have it

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 10:48 AM

Fingers crossed then!

Any plans for today?

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 10:50 AM

thank you!

no plans. already done all i need to do

how about you?

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 10:54 AM

I am waiting for my parcel which is supposed to be here anytime between now and 12. I have a cpn appointment this afternoon and my parents are coming visiting this evening. I might walk to the next village to get some milk although I am not desperate for it so it can wait.

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 11:00 AM

Morning everyone.

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better Dawn, I hope it continues and you feel even better with time. Sounds like you have a busy day.

What are you going to sit on now you have no sofa Beckie? When is your new one coming? Are you ok for meds at the moment? Wouldn't want you going without. I sent the books yesterday so hopefully soon you'll have something you can do when you've done everything that needs to be done.

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 11:02 AM

Thanks Lindsay.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:17 AM

sounds like you've got things to keep you occupied then dawn

hey Lindsay!

i do also have an armchair luckily!
new one is coming on thursday.
i am SO excited!

yeah i have enough meds until tomorrow morning!

ah fantastic! thank you!

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 11:20 AM

I'm glad about the seating and meds situation. I'm excited for your new sofa coming too! I might come round to test it for comfort and then never leave.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:21 AM

that's a long way to test a sofa! :tongue2:

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 11:21 AM

Hopefully your new sofa is comfy Beckie. Although I almost typed Buckle there lol.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:22 AM

thanks dawn!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 11:25 AM

I am having days lately where I find it hard to type for some reason so if I spell people's names wrong forgive me.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:28 AM

fair enough!
i probably wouldn't even notice tbh
in hospital when i was writing the allocation thing on the board i spelled my own name wrong! and i didn't notice until hours later! also, i spelled the other Rebecca's name correctly!

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 11:32 AM

I raise my hand to having done this too but big style. I was in hospital and starting new meds at a high dose and was completely out of it and my texts made no sense and sometimes my spoken words made no sense. I even emailed a company about an order that had went missing and they didn't respond.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:36 AM

I've done that too when i've taken too many of a certain med!
in my mind, i am speaking/writing completely coherently but it turns out i just say a load of random words/letters!

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 11:39 AM

Well don't be doing that again *stern voice*

I'm off to have an early lunch and start getting ready for the gym group. I'll probably be back on later. I hope everyone has a good day.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:41 AM

definitely not!

hope it goes ok lindsay! i know you hate the gym so well done for going!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 11:50 AM

My parcel has been rescheduled so I am still waiting. Just as long as it doesn't turn up when my cpn is here. I also want a shower so hopefully I am not waiting too long.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 11:53 AM

how annoying!
hope it turns up soon!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 12:08 PM

Yay my parcel has arrived. It came from the USA so I am pleased it is intact.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 12:09 PM

is it anything exciting?

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 12:14 PM

A model horse.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 12:18 PM

aw that sounds nice

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 12:22 PM

It's now safely in my cabinet.

Right then I am going for a shower talk to you later.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 12:23 PM

lovely :)

ok! have a nice shower!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 12:54 PM

Have been for my shower. I have a latte :-)

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 12:56 PM

yay for latte!
i've just had one of my 3 in 1 caramel coffee sachet things.
i am craving a costa delivery though!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 12:59 PM

Not to make you jealous but it's a Costa coffee latte. I have an tassimo machine so I got Costa pods for it.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 01:00 PM

i would ubereats a costa but i have 17p in my bank account lol
roll on payday!

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 01:01 PM

Hopefully you will get one when you get paid next Beckie.

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 01:03 PM

I'm really bad at being outside for long periods on my own recently. I missed a bus (it's not even clear when they are due) so walked to another bus stop to get the next one but I was standing there for ages and got panicky and had to come home so I've missed the gym group. I'm not looking forward to explaining things to my support worker if she phones after the group. I'll maybe need to wear headphones when I'm waiting on buses to see if that helps. I am a failure.

I'm glad your parcel arrived safely and left you enough time to have a shower, Dawn. Do you collect model horses?

What are you craving from Costa, Beckie?

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 01:04 PM

probably will. only have to wait until Thursday luckily!
but then rent and bills etc...
being an adult sucks!

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 01:07 PM

ninja post lindsay!
i'm sorry you had such a stressful time
hopefully your support worker will understand
you're not a failure at all

i'm not actually sure!
they do a really nice mango smoothie type thing with bubbles in and it's so satisfying to bite them and they pop!

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 01:15 PM

Those are the wrong sort of bubbles to have in a drink. Sounds very weird.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 01:22 PM

i wasn't convinced when my friend mentioned it but it's actually amazing!

one_step_closer 14-06-2022 01:28 PM

I'll need to try one if I can find a Costa near me. I think I can see the drink on their online menu.

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 01:36 PM

definitely worth a try!
I'm going to get one on Thursday :-D

not_so_insig 14-06-2022 01:54 PM

Hope you enjoy it Beckie

Cacoethes 14-06-2022 02:01 PM

I've just looked on ubereats and they don't deliver it :(
but I'm going to my friend's on Saturday and he lives in London so there's at least 4 Costas on each road!
