Not feeling too well! I have covid! D:

How are you?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 11:57 AM

Oh no, that sucks. Are you looking after yourself?

I am sitting with a cup of tea, watching the rain.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 11:59 AM

Yes I am.
Keeping hydrated and have a tesco delivery coming today.

Sounds good!
I love watching the rain

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 12:16 PM

That's good :) have you had it long?

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 12:19 PM

I started feeling ill on Christmas day but only tested positive yesterday
I'm just gutted I have to stay in the house for a whole 10 days and can't go to work!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 12:44 PM

I hope you recover soon and the symptoms aren't too bad.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 12:51 PM

Thank you :)

Do you have any plans today?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 01:05 PM

Not really. Granma is staying so I'll spend time with her. Also I need to use my coping skills to keep my anxiety at bay.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 01:15 PM

I hope you have a nice day

one_step_closer 27-12-2021 03:02 PM

Afternoon everyone, take very good care of yourselves.

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 03:06 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 03:12 PM

I feel bad. I made my mum's birthday card and put 'happy 60th birthday' on it but my sister is deliberately not putting anything birthday-ish so now I'm worried she will hate my card.

not_so_insig 27-12-2021 03:22 PM

I am sure your mum will appreciate your card tamobhuuta.

I have washed my hair. I am listening to abba's latest album on alexa.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 03:30 PM

Hi lindsay!

I'm sure she'll love it tamo!

I didn't know abba were still a thing!

not_so_insig 27-12-2021 03:40 PM

They released a brand new album a few months ago which got to number 1 Beckie. I got the cd for Christmas Beckie but it's currently free on alexa.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 03:51 PM

Was never a fan so probably won't listen to it.
I have a completely different music taste!

tamobhuuta 27-12-2021 04:08 PM

I like ABBA :)

Thanks for the reassurance.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 04:14 PM

I hope my tesco delivery comes soon.
It's coming between 2-6!

one_step_closer 27-12-2021 06:30 PM

Wow, I didn't know Abba were still around. Are you enjoying the new album Dawn?

I hope your Tesco order is here by now Beckie. Did you need to tell them you have covid/wear a mask.

Cacoethes 27-12-2021 06:38 PM

Its just arrived!
I don't know if I had to but I wore a mask and told him when he got here

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 06:52 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2021 11:24 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 11:32 AM

Still feeling rather ill but I'm ok!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-12-2021 12:09 PM

Sorry to hear that. I am OK. I've had tea so it's time to get dressed. But will I....

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 12:11 PM


Are you going anywhere today?

tamobhuuta 28-12-2021 12:57 PM

Nope. But it is my mum's birthday.

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 01:04 PM

Happy birthday to your mum!

not_so_insig 28-12-2021 05:25 PM

Hello all. My postcard to Russia arrived today. I sent it in October. I am not sending any postcards until the new year.

tamobhuuta 28-12-2021 05:31 PM

That sounds like a good plan insig.

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 05:45 PM

Can anyone give me any ideas of stuff I can do without leaving the house?
I have a whole WEEK of isolation left :'(

not_so_insig 28-12-2021 05:49 PM

Drawing? Playing games on a games console? Baking/cooking? Watching TV? Also ask alexa to play Pointless.

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 05:54 PM

Good ideas dawn! Thanks :)

tamobhuuta 28-12-2021 05:57 PM

I'm doing wordsearches.

not_so_insig 28-12-2021 06:10 PM

No problem Beckie hope you find something to entertain yourself with. Dont forget we are here if you need someone to talk to.

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 06:32 PM

I used to love word searches.
Now when I look at them the words all starts moving about on the page for some reason!

Thank you Dawn <3

nonperson 28-12-2021 10:10 PM

Sudoku =P

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 10:12 PM

Oh god! My worst nightmare!

nonperson 28-12-2021 10:21 PM

What better time to learn though!

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 10:25 PM

I have tried many times and become frustrated to the point of rage!
Just like origami

nonperson 28-12-2021 10:34 PM

My first sudoku took me two weeks to complete. I understand the rage.

But ooh I like origami. There's a siamese cat that I want to try.

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 10:37 PM

That's quite a while!

Origami looks cool. I just can't do it!

I may have to go to bed
This double vision is really pissing me off
And now I feel sick!

nonperson 28-12-2021 10:40 PM

I think I like things with stages of instructions like Lego and making order out of sudoku.

Oh no! Bed sounds like the best place to be though. =/

Cacoethes 28-12-2021 11:35 PM

I get what you mean

Yes it is
Double vision is better
Still can't sleep though :plain:

nonperson 28-12-2021 11:48 PM

Maybe a sudoku will help send you to sleep? However it could rage you into staying awake for hours... hm :confused:

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:02 AM

It probably would rage me into being more awake!

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:15 AM

Then I am out of suggestions... =/

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:25 AM

No worries!
I'm hoping to fall asleep at some point!
Being on my phone probably isn't helping....
Sleep hygiene and all that

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:32 AM

Yep. Do you have it set to go into "blue mode" or whatever it's called at night?

nonperson 29-12-2021 12:38 AM

Hm. Its not called blue mode at all... It makes the screen less blue and more red/orange.

Cacoethes 29-12-2021 12:49 AM

Not a clue what that is!
