Morning lovely peoples. How are you all?

Bloody freezing this morning but I kept overheating in bed and waking up. Had to open the window in the end!

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 10:49 AM

It's chilly here too.

I'm ok, just hoping I don't spasm too much today.

How are you?

nonperson 23-01-2021 10:53 AM

It's that hazy sunny frosty sort of morning, it looks pretty outside.

I'm ok too, a bit tired.

What causes the spasms?

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 10:58 AM

Did you sleep ok?

We think it's because of my meds.

nonperson 23-01-2021 11:40 AM

Ah that sucks. =/ Is there anything that can be done to stop that side effect?

I just kept waking up a lot in the night.

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 11:43 AM

I hate nights like that.

Hopefully the lamotrogine will start working soon.

nonperson 23-01-2021 11:50 AM

Hope so. =)

What're you up to today?

I've just been out to top up the bird feeders and put the recycling out. Don't know what to do now.

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 12:43 PM

When we were little we made bird feeders it was great.

I'm just going to be coping with anxiety.

nonperson 23-01-2021 01:07 PM

I like watching the birds. =)

I hope you can do something nice for yourself as well.

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 01:32 PM

Afternoon guys
I am groggy!

not_so_insig 23-01-2021 02:33 PM

It's snowing in my corner of Wales.

BTW the dwp are sending out brown envelopes again it’s just the annual increase in benefits in case anyone panics.

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 02:51 PM

I got one this week, it worried me a lot.

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 02:55 PM

I need to get home to check my post. I applied for pip just before I went into hospital so I’m worried I’m going to miss letters from them

one_step_closer 23-01-2021 04:20 PM

I got one about PIP saying something like they were moving my review date further back or something because of covid. I got another one about cold weather payment. I freak out every time I see a brown envelope.

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 04:30 PM

So do I

one_step_closer 23-01-2021 06:33 PM

I think lots of people do. It's horrible.

What is everyone up to this evening?

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 06:51 PM

A friend said he would ring but couldn't say when..

What are you up to?

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 06:58 PM

I've just had a shower.

How about you lindsay?

tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 07:49 PM

I am trying to eat healthily (not in an ED/restricting way) but... hello cake!

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 07:50 PM


tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 07:51 PM

L has made a Victoria sponge :)

nonperson 23-01-2021 07:56 PM

Mmmmmmmm cake.

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 07:58 PM


tamobhuuta 23-01-2021 09:08 PM

I had a slice, cake for everyone *sends cake*

Cacoethes 23-01-2021 10:31 PM

Yaaaay! Thanks tamo!

I've just had a hot chocolate and my meds and now it's time for bed
Good night everyone

nonperson 24-01-2021 11:08 AM

Morning all. Hope everyone slept well. <3

It's snoooooooowing! =D

one_step_closer 24-01-2021 11:16 AM

Morning NP. Is the snow settling? It's sunny and frosty here.

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 11:19 AM

Snow good. Sleep bad.

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 11:23 AM

Sorry I already posted successfully, then deleted it.

nonperson 24-01-2021 11:26 AM

Hey Lindsay. Yes it's settling and still coming down! I like sunny and frosty mornings.

Sorry about your spasms and bad sleep, Tamo. I don't think I slept too well either.

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 11:45 AM

Snowing here too!

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 11:53 AM

We just had a suspicious man come to the door :(

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 12:01 PM

Oh..that's concerning

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 12:04 PM

Yeah... my mum has phoned the police, just in case.

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 12:08 PM

Good. Better to be safe!

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 12:10 PM

What are you up to today?

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 12:20 PM

Not a lot.
Hoping to go for a walk round the car park at some point.
But the snow is really coming down now so I probably won't be allowed to. Or the staff won't want to take me. :(

tamobhuuta 24-01-2021 01:06 PM

I hope you get your walk.

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 01:24 PM

Thank you
Apparently the nurse said we can still go so yay!

Have you got anything planned for today?

nonperson 24-01-2021 01:43 PM

Stopped snowing here now but it's already melting. =(

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 01:50 PM

Oh no!
Still snowing here but its slowed down a bit

nonperson 24-01-2021 01:57 PM

That'll make your walk easier!

Not sure why it's melting so quick, it's not exactly warm outside. Doesn't look like it's going to snow again either. The weather people made it out like it'd be snowing all day today. Oh well, it was nice and pretty while it lasted.

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 02:01 PM


Global warming :p
It is very pretty

nonperson 24-01-2021 02:12 PM

Bloody global warming. >=(

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 02:16 PM

Humans suck..messing up the planet and stuff

nonperson 24-01-2021 02:21 PM

Totally. It's a sad state of affairs. I'm trying to reduce my plastic use... Seems kind of pointless though. =(

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 02:26 PM

It really is.
I know what you mean. Especially now with the amount of masks just chucked about on the floor.
Very sad

not_so_insig 24-01-2021 02:35 PM

Hello! The snow is really bad here. But my postcard to the USA has arrived.

Cacoethes 24-01-2021 02:47 PM

It's starting to melt now but there's still a good layer on the ground.
The nurse said we're going to make snow angels when we go out for our walk :-D

nonperson 24-01-2021 02:48 PM

I see so many dropped masks at work, it's horrid. And then I have to go and dispose of them, yuck!
