Morning Tamo, how are you?

Morning everyone.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 10:37 AM

Morning guys

chinahorse 07-11-2019 11:06 AM


What's everyone up to today?

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 11:16 AM

I am up to nothing as usual


tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 11:18 AM

I've been to Mass, going to put some washing on.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 11:21 AM

Sounds good tamo

I need to do washing too but someone is using the washing machine

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 11:26 AM

When I was in hospital I gave my washing to my parents so I didn't have to queue.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 11:34 AM

My mum lives too far away for me to do that

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 11:36 AM

Shame. What are you up to now?

chinahorse 07-11-2019 11:44 AM

Same when I was in beckie, but I got up earlier than most so would pop it on then.

I've showered for the first time in ages and been to the gp and the pharmaxy. Now doing washing and crochet.

chinahorse 07-11-2019 11:46 AM

And it is SO COLD in my house. My tea cooled down to drinkable in like 4 minutes. Ok I drink it hot but still.

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 12:30 PM

I'm cold too but Dad is making a fire.

not_so_insig 07-11-2019 02:01 PM

I have been for coffee with my friend. I turned up an hour early. Oops. But the good news is that I had time to go to the post office to post Lorraine a present and to get some postcards.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 02:30 PM

I've done my washing now

Well done for being so productive Lillie!

I'm just listening to music as I am struggling a bit

not_so_insig 07-11-2019 03:05 PM

Sorry to hear that you are struggling Beckie. I hope that the music helps.

chinahorse 07-11-2019 03:06 PM

I always miss having access to a drier when not in hospital. My clothes take an age to dry at the minute.

Hope you enjoyed the coffee out dawn.

Sorry you're struggling beckie, well done for listening to music and ask for meds/support if you need it.

Been out again to my cmht appointment and back to the pharmacy. Now in pjs on the sofa thpugh.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 03:23 PM

Thanks guys
I've just had some meds which will hopefully help

I think you deserve pjs and sofa Lillie!
You've done lots today

chinahorse 07-11-2019 03:51 PM

Yep. And been to the library to print out receipts so I can hopefully claim the transport back from getting to bristol.

Just had an omette cos I was hungry and it's unleashed the hungry and now I want to eat everything!

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 03:51 PM

The fire is burning bright! I'm toasty warm.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 03:53 PM

Hate it when that happens Lillie!
You end up hungrier than you were before you ate!

There are some very strange cat noises coming from outside

chinahorse 07-11-2019 03:56 PM

Jealous tamo. I have a jumper and a hoddie on and a blanket and am cold.

Yup. So annoying beckie. Have got some more things to munch now so all is good.


Cacoethes 07-11-2019 03:58 PM

That's good Lillie

Yes probably fighting!

one_step_closer 07-11-2019 04:21 PM

Dinner time soon. :-)

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 04:23 PM


I'm watching Hot Fuzz on the iPad.
Love this film
And soooo glad I got the iPad. Using it all the time!

one_step_closer 07-11-2019 04:27 PM

I've never seen that film. Are you used to having the bigger screen on here now?

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 04:38 PM

Its a good film!

I still prefer to use my phone for ryl tbh!

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 04:48 PM

Hospital stays without a posh phone were awful!

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 04:55 PM

I know!
We weren't allowed phones in a couple of the hospitals I've been in and it was awful!
Although back then phones weren't as addictive and couldn't do as much back then.
I wonder if they've changed the rules now everyone uses phones more?

nonperson 07-11-2019 05:19 PM

There are so many pros and cons for phones now. =/

I have Terrys chocolate orange. =)

not_so_insig 07-11-2019 05:45 PM

I think my cat is cold because she has been sitting on my chest for over an hour now. She started on my arm though.

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 05:53 PM

Aw poor cold kitty

nonperson 07-11-2019 06:11 PM

My kitty has decided I'm not warm enough and has curled up right in front of the radiator.

not_so_insig 07-11-2019 06:22 PM

She isnt on my chest any more as I got up to make my tea. I am having tuna and mozzarella pizza. With a home made dip.

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 06:28 PM

Sounds fancy insig

chinahorse 07-11-2019 06:29 PM

My kitty is curled up on my lap. I'm sat on an electric blanket and covered with a fleece throw.

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 06:30 PM

Most of me is ok, just my hands and feet are chilly

chinahorse 07-11-2019 06:42 PM

Fluffy socks?

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 06:43 PM

I'm wearing fluffy socks and slippers.

chinahorse 07-11-2019 06:45 PM

Errrrr em wiggle them about?!

not_so_insig 07-11-2019 06:55 PM

Hot water bottle?

tamobhuuta 07-11-2019 07:01 PM

I could strap one to each foot.

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 07:59 PM

I've just showered and now I'm cold!

chinahorse 07-11-2019 08:11 PM


Dressing gown?

Cacoethes 07-11-2019 08:14 PM

I don't own a dressing gown
I have put my hoodie on though!

chinahorse 07-11-2019 08:57 PM

What?! Dressing gowns are life.

nonperson 07-11-2019 09:06 PM

I own one but it's just been hung on the back of the bathroom door for years! Only gets used for extreme coldness.

chinahorse 07-11-2019 09:17 PM

I have 2. Well 2 fleecey one and 1 summer one and I'd not cope without them!

chinahorse 07-11-2019 09:22 PM

Cat is laid on me having a bath. And I badly need the loo but it's only the second time he's settled down this evening for more than 5 mins.

nonperson 07-11-2019 09:25 PM

Hm, that is quite a conundrum!

I like the idea of dressing gowns but just feel weird and bulky when I'm wearing one. Mine is sort of towel like with a hood.

chinahorse 07-11-2019 09:43 PM

Could be the material? Ones like that are heavy.
