Morning, how are you?

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 10:21 AM

Morning all.

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 10:33 AM

I have a busy day today. Amazon, tesco, my cpn and my parents are all coming today. I hope that amazon and tesco don't come at the same time!

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 11:00 AM

I'm ok thanks

How are you?

At least you won't be rushing around dawn.
Is the amazon parcel something that can be dropped off quickly? They should just be able to chuck it at you and leave if your tesco delivery is at the same time

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 12:10 PM

Yes it can be left for me as it's not age restricted items. But according to tracking it's not coming until after tesco has been which is a good thing.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 12:13 PM

That's good

I am freezing!

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 12:15 PM

It's wet and windy here. Plus cold.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 12:18 PM

It's windy here too. Not wet but very grey!

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 12:20 PM

Apparently they have given very high winds for tonight and tomorrow in my county.

tamobhuuta 04-10-2022 12:40 PM

I hope you have a nice time with your parents insig.

I'm very lucky, I'm getting 3 family visits today because it's my birthday :) my mum brought me some lovely presents and Costa.

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 12:48 PM

Happy birthday tamobhuuta

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 12:52 PM

Happy birthday tamo!
I hope you enjoy your visits :)

tamobhuuta 04-10-2022 01:06 PM

Thanks guys x

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 01:09 PM

I know a lot of people with birthdays in October! Me, loads of people from work, my best friend and another close friend!

tamobhuuta 04-10-2022 01:17 PM

How old will you be? I'm a big old 32.

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 01:17 PM

I know lots of people who were born in December. Makes it hard when you're on a limited income.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 01:20 PM

I'll be 31 tamo

One of my brother's birthdays is Christmas day.

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 01:27 PM

Does he get two lots of presents Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 01:30 PM

He tends to get the same amount of presents but does get bigger/more expensive presents.

tamobhuuta 04-10-2022 01:35 PM

I don't mind the money side so much because I have what I have, but my mum's birthday is on the 28th December and I struggle to think of two nice, worthwhile things.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 01:50 PM

I'm constantly broke lol
Literally too scared to turn on the heating XD

It is hard to think of things though

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 02:58 PM

Tesco has been and I have put everything away. Amazon hasn't been yet thankfully.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 03:50 PM

I can't believe this thread has been going strong for 6 years!!!

one_step_closer 04-10-2022 03:50 PM

Happy Birthday Tamo. :-D

I'm just popping in to say hello. Had a very busy day and need to go out again to collect the rest of my prescription that wasn't ready this morning because my psych changed it so they told me to come back at 4.30pm. It's really messed up my schedule. I was at the gym group today too. I'm not used to things taking up so much of my day and not being able to do things at scheduled times. I might not be able to get back on here today. Hope you're all ok.

Cacoethes 04-10-2022 03:57 PM

Hey lindsay
Well done for doing all that! It must be very stressful
Hope to see you soon!

tamobhuuta 04-10-2022 05:30 PM

Well done osc :)

not_so_insig 04-10-2022 05:40 PM

My cpn has been. Now waiting for amazon. Have my parents coming later.

Cacoethes 05-10-2022 08:35 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 05-10-2022 10:16 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-10-2022 10:21 AM

Bit worried.
I tried to cancel my cardiology appointment but they said its been coded as urgent. So i have to go. It's on the 18th.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2022 12:10 PM

Oh dear, that would worry me too. But try not to worry! Touch wood it will all be fine.

I am ok, just had a visit from my dad.

not_so_insig 05-10-2022 01:53 PM

Afternoon all.

one_step_closer 05-10-2022 02:35 PM

Hey everyone. How are your days going? Or should it be how is your day going?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2022 03:57 PM

Hi insig and osc.

I am OK. I just watched and enjoyed doctors. But I have a cold :( how are you?

one_step_closer 05-10-2022 05:00 PM

Boo to having a cold. I hope it passes soon. Glad you enjoyed Doctors though. Is it repeats you're watching?

I'm not sure how I am.

Cacoethes 05-10-2022 06:45 PM

I've had a fuxking awful day

maii 05-10-2022 11:25 PM

Hi everyone!


Sorry I've not posted since I've joined, but I'm worried as the holidays draw closer and I avoid celebrations for obvious reasons. I go into isolation mode and life gets fuzzy.



I hope its alright to post in this thread and its hard for me to express myself; although, I feel online might be easier.



I'm sorry some of you seem to not be doing too well and I hope things improve.



Trisha ..:)

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 08:38 AM

I trisha!

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 10:29 AM

Morning. I'm feeling grotty, I don't know if it's covid but whatever it is, my family don't want to catch it so they're not visiting today :(

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 10:29 AM

And welcome mail!

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 10:38 AM

Sorry to hear that tamo
Do they test you for covid there?
At my usual hospital we got tested twice a week.
There is a lurgy going around though! I had it last week. Pretty much everyone i know has had it!
Hopefully it will pass quickly.

one_step_closer 06-10-2022 03:36 PM

Hi everyone, quiet in here. How are your days going?

I watched Hocus Pocus 2, I don't know if I liked it I'm not good with opinions. It was watchable but not something that I'd say everyone has to watch.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 04:02 PM

Hey lindsay

I enjoyed hocus pocus 2. Not as much as the orginal obviously!

I'm ok. I'm pleased my nail lady has managed to fit me in only a week after my orginal appointment was meant to be. Which is a massive deal as she gets booked up months and months in advance. Stupid 'urgent' cardiology appointment messing up my plans :plain:

Anyway. How are you?

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 04:30 PM

I tested negative for covid, it must just be a tummy bug. The doc is writing me up for something anti vomiting so I'm going to ask for that between eating and meds, when i felt sick yesterday, so hopefully I can keep everything down.

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 04:31 PM

I'm glad your nail lady can fit you in.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 04:32 PM

Glad it's not covid tamo.

Thank you

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 04:48 PM

They finally got hold of swabs and I am negative :) but I was sick when I did the throat swab, ugh. One of the HCAs was really sweet and has given me a ginger tea and been very sympathetic.

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 04:50 PM

Hmm, two slightly different posts there. Make of them what you will...

one_step_closer 06-10-2022 04:55 PM

Your nail lady must be good, Beckie. I'm glad you managed to rearrange, will you get halloween themed nails? I hope your cardiology appointment goes well.

I'm sorry you're not well, Tamo. I hope it passes soon. Be kind to yourself.

I've had a different day because I watched a film and it's making me anxious etc that it wasn't a normal day. It's a bit pathetic.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 05:11 PM

That was lovely of the nurse.

Yes she's amazing!
I haven't decided on what to get yet. I have a few pictures saved to my phone!

It's not pathetic at all lindsay.
Changes in routine can be really hard. I struggle with it sometimes.
