Yay for family visits and noms :D
It gets pretty boring in hospital during the weekends. I hope your family Will cheer you up, Tamo :)

Cacoethes 22-10-2022 11:07 AM

Morning guys!
I had pilates this morning and then taekwando. Now on the bus to see Jas. Going out for a work friend's birthday drinks tonight then managers leaving drinks after that!

Well done zurg!
Clean windows are awesome!

Hope you enjoy your visits tamo!

tamobhuuta 22-10-2022 12:07 PM

Sounds like a fun day Cacoethes :)

I saw my mum. She brought me a swirly thing that I had for my breakfast and a muffin which I'm looking forward to for my lunch! Oh, and a smoothie to get some vitamins in me lol

not_so_insig 22-10-2022 12:38 PM

Afternoon all. I am sitting here bored. Naff all on the telly. Might see what there's on on Britbox. Havent caught up with Doc Martin yet. I am still feeling tired.

Cacoethes 22-10-2022 12:42 PM


That sounds lovely!
I'm in Costa. Bit of time before the next bus!

tamobhuuta 22-10-2022 12:57 PM

What are you having in Costa?

not_so_insig 22-10-2022 01:30 PM

I have ordered a Christmas themed tshirt today. Plus I had an email saying that the cat jumper i ordered yesterday has been sent.

one_step_closer 22-10-2022 02:12 PM

Hey everyone, lots of posts to catch up with.

I hope you're all having a good day.

Yay for cleaning your windows Kat! I used to get a company to do mine but they weren't very good and I stopped them to save money. I don't like washing them myself though because people will look at me.

You have lots on today, Beckie. I hope you enjoy it all.

Sounds like a good visit, Tamo.

I hope you find something to do, Dawn. What's on your Christmas themed t-shirt?

not_so_insig 22-10-2022 02:58 PM

It's the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Lindsay. Came from Truffle Shuffle. I ordered a Care Bear tshirt and a Garfield one too because they've got a 3 for 2 sale. Wanted an Harry Potter tshirt but they didn't have my size.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2022 03:50 PM

Cool t shirts, shame about the HP.

But cpn said to keep taking it so meh

I don't have like legit chronic fatigue, but I have been tired a great deal lately. Like constantly tired. It's not really the same. But i just have to push through because i have too much to do!

Argh ... I would let the doc know if that continues and you don't need that with everything going on. Thank you for your concern and yeah, I push through most days but lingering bleak feeling over my shoulders.

Hope everyone is alright. Sending well wishes to all.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2022 03:54 PM

Hi maii, how is your day going?

maii 22-10-2022 04:21 PM

Hi tamo ... I'm guess I'm empty is the best word. I hope you are well. Today my only plans are to do some house cleaning I've been punting off.

one_step_closer 22-10-2022 04:52 PM

I hope you feel at least a bit better soon Maii. Good luck with the cleaning, you can do it!

Truffle Shuffle is a good site but can be expensive. I hope you like your purchases Dawn.

How are you getting on Tamo?

I've just spent ages looking at Jellycat soft toys. They're so cute. I already have a dinosaur, a cloud, a fox, and a pot of daffodils.

not_so_insig 22-10-2022 04:53 PM

I received a jellycat festive gingerbread man this week Lindsay. He's for my tree.

one_step_closer 22-10-2022 04:58 PM

Aww, that'll be cute.

one_step_closer 22-10-2022 05:08 PM

I've just bought a riverside rambler badger and a bunny on a keyring (both Jellycat). I really shouldn't be spending money on these things. Bad me. Still haven't heard back about how much I owe the ESA people and that's been since March so I must owe a lot.

Cacoethes 22-10-2022 05:56 PM

Hey guys!

I don't think it necessarily means you owe a lot lindsay. They are notoriously bad for sorting things out! Think of all the thousands of people that claim ESA or are trying to claim ESA and then think of how many people are actually sorting these specific things out! I don't know numbers but I'm guessing it's not that many!

I'm back home! I got back at 5pm but the pharmacy was closed. Googled and apparently boots closes at 4pm on Saturdays now! Don't know when that started happening. Oh well!

Had a nice day with Jasmine. Went to the posh shopping centre. Did some shopping and had a costa.
Mum things I'm hyper though :eyeroll:

tamobhuuta 22-10-2022 07:39 PM

My sister gave me a gingerbread man jellycat for my birthday!

Cacoethes 22-10-2022 07:57 PM


It's kinda like jellycat is the new beanie babies!

nonperson 22-10-2022 08:10 PM

I love jellycat! So so unbelievably soft. I saw there's a range of Jellycat vegetables now, I was very tempted to buy one.

chinahorse 22-10-2022 08:34 PM

They are super soft and cute.

Cacoethes 22-10-2022 08:39 PM

Vegetables?? That sounds adorable tbh!

Hey np and Lillie!!!

chinahorse 22-10-2022 08:58 PM

Vegetables, like Kevin the carrot?

nonperson 22-10-2022 09:03 PM

Noo, so much better than Kevin the carrot.

nonperson 22-10-2022 09:06 PM



chinahorse 22-10-2022 09:11 PM

Oooooo they are adorable!

nonperson 22-10-2022 09:18 PM

There is a carrot too!

chinahorse 22-10-2022 09:19 PM

Some of them are a bit weird looking.

nonperson 22-10-2022 09:21 PM

Like the asparagus? XD

chinahorse 22-10-2022 09:36 PM

Have you seen the kiwi?
The asparagus did make me laugh.

nonperson 22-10-2022 09:44 PM

I did see the kiwi. It'd look worse if it wasn't cut in half, just a brown hairy ball :ermm:

I'm also not sure why the fried egg appears to have little brown arms

maii 22-10-2022 11:41 PM

I like gingerbread flavor.

Hope everyone is managing, know its not easy.

I managed to polish our furniture but that was the extent of my house cleaning. I lost energy and desire sad to say.

Any good movie recommendation? Sometimes just need distraction from reality.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 03:07 AM

Holy fu k i am drumk
So many shots
Tequila rose is milkshake

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 08:43 AM

Morning everyone!

I'm not hungover. In fact, i think I'm still drunk XD
Ordered a maccys breakfast :-D

nonperson 23-10-2022 09:21 AM

Morning all.

I take it you had a good time then, Beckie?

Greasy breakfast is always the answer.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 09:42 AM

Yeah it was good fun!
I had no idea how much drama there is though!
The McDonald's helped!

How are you?

nonperson 23-10-2022 10:03 AM

The drama always comes out with alcohol!

I'm... meh. Feeling a bit odd/whiney this morning, maybe it's the weather. Wish I had people to go get drink with =( I'm supposed to be seeing a couple of people today but no one has actually made any official plans so I dunno what's happening.

You got much going on today?

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 10:20 AM

Yep! Everyone's sleeping with everyone, one of the girls was crying all night asking everyone if they're annoyed with her, some people didn't come to E's birthday drinks....
I had no idea of any of this!
It was funny though because when we walked in to our pub (it was closed to the public by the time we got there) and it was absolute chaos! We were all behind the bar making ourselves drinks, big boss's wife got the tequila rose out of the fridge and just started pouring a load of shots and refilling them over an over again! Mental!
Everyone hugged me when i came in because no one expected to see me out! People were just shouting 'omg Beckie!!!'
Working at a pub is so much fun!

The weather can have that effect.
If i lived closer I'd definitely go for a drink with you!

Just pilates and asda.
It's pouring down with rain!

nonperson 23-10-2022 10:32 AM

Wow, that is a lot of drama. Fun that you had the run of the pub though =P

It's probably not the weather tbh, just seems to emphasise it. And thanks! I think you'd drink me under the table with all those shots and cocktails XD

Pouring here too, it's meant to ease off a bit this afternoon, not that I have anywhere to go at the moment so it doesn't matter. I guess you can't avoid it =/

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 11:07 AM

I feel really, really sorry for whoever is on the opening shift today.....:ermm:

Haha! I think it would be fun!
If you're ever in my part of Bedfordshire, give me a buzz!
Don't know why you'd ever come here because there's **** all here but you never know! XD

I'm heading off for pilates now. I'm going to get soaked!
I was gonna go to asda but have decided i can't be bothered. Just want to go out and get home as soon as possible! I may go for a coffee though. I always crave coffee shop coffee after a night out!

nonperson 23-10-2022 11:44 AM

I guess it won't be any of the people who were creating the mess last night? XD

It would be fun. Bedfordshire isn't somewhere I tend to go but I would like the point out that we will be in the same place at the same time at the beginning of December. Could say hello and have a pre-Shinedown drink?

Hope you don't get soaked! It has actually stopped raining and is sort of sunny here now so maybe that weather will work its way up to you.

tamobhuuta 23-10-2022 01:03 PM

Hi everyone. Sounds like an excellent time Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 01:30 PM

Nope! XD

Omg yes we should totally have a pre shinedown drink!

I did get soaked...even with my umbrella! I've had to put the heating on to dry my hoodie and trainers XD
It had stopped and was sunny by the time i was finished though!

Hey tamo!
It was a lot of fun!
How are you?

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 02:16 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I'm glad you had an enjoyable night, Beckie.

I'm sorry you're not feeling so great, NP. Do you want to see the people you might be seeing today?

How are things, Tamo?


not_so_insig 23-10-2022 02:22 PM

Hello all. I have washed and dried my hair.

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 02:24 PM

Snap, Dawn. Well, I've left mine to dry itself. How are you getting on so far today?

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 02:26 PM

Thanks lindsay!

You up to much today?

I went to pilates, got a coffee then went to asda. I wasn't going to bother with asda but i went anyway. I accidentally stole a bag for life! I expect the police to come and arrest me at any moment XD

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 02:33 PM

You can't accidentally steal a bag for life, it was deliberate I say! I'm definitely reporting you. Do you have much to do with the rest of your day.

I've washed my hair and changed my bedding. I don't think I've anything else to do really except I've gone off Zox wristbands and I want to go through them and see what I want to keep and what I want to sell but it seems like too much to do right now.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 02:43 PM

Hahaha XD
Just add 'theft of a bag for life' to my criminal record!

I don't have anything left to do. Bit bored actually!
Might just learn some Spanish. Yo estas muy cansada!
