Well done for dusting Zurg it is the chore I am the worst at and really should dust more frequently with my asthma.

It does indeed suck, made myself a little platter for lunch to cheer myself up. Had baked falafel, cucumber, pitta bread and caramelised onion houmous and some tempura prawns (oven cooked from the freezer)with a cocktail sauce dip made of ketchup mixed with mayo.
It was very nice.

Now trying to decide whether to have coffee or tea.

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 02:46 PM

I've sent L a picture of the hairbrush and asked her if she can get me one.

Sorry about your appointment lr. CMHT can drag their heels.

Well done for cleaning Zurg.

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 03:33 PM

Well done for dusting zurg!
I have to clean today too. House inspection tomorrow. Ugh!

That platter sounds delicious jen!

long road 28-11-2023 03:35 PM

I felt super fancy eating it Beckie!

Good luck with your cleaning!

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 03:37 PM

As you should!

Thanks. Should really start.
L is coming round after work to help.
But i should really get what i can done

one_step_closer 28-11-2023 04:42 PM

Hope you get a hairbrush you like, Tamo.

Sorry the CMHT are being rubbish, Jen. Food platter sounds nice.

Well done for dusting, Kat. I have recently started dusting every Monday to try and get into a routine with it as I too rarely do it.

Just wait for L, Beckie. More fun if any fun can actually be had cleaning!

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 04:48 PM

Yeah true!
I'm just so stupidly tired!

one_step_closer 28-11-2023 04:56 PM

Can you rest until L comes?

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 05:00 PM

Yeah. She won't be long anyway. She finishes at 4

one_step_closer 28-11-2023 05:01 PM

Will you be doing other nice things together, not just cleaning?

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 05:22 PM

Nope, just cleaning!
She has to pick up her son at 5:30

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 06:18 PM

I hope the cleaning went OK. Can you rest now?

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 06:42 PM

Cleaning was fine thanks.
Now i can rest
I was going to go to krav maga at 7, but i can't face it

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 06:43 PM

Rest is good :)

I'm in waiting mode for L.

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 06:53 PM

It is
I just don't like resting!

When is she coming?

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 07:11 PM

She aims for 6pm but she's always late. Could be another 10 minutes.

I'm very good at resting, I will send some of it to you

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 07:30 PM

Hopefully she's there by now!

Thank you!

long road 28-11-2023 07:52 PM

Hey everyone,

I just woke up from a nap. Was asleep just under 2 hours.

I agree that restful things can be boring especially when you are resting because you have none of the energy. Can you put on a film or something? I know it's hard to focus. Maybe you could rewatch Saturdays Doctor Who?

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 08:01 PM

I'm watching greys anatomy.
I wouldn't be able to focus on whatever was on the tv tbh!

Did the nap help?

long road 28-11-2023 08:18 PM

It helped with physical blargh but not with mental blargh.

I was really into Grey's anatomy for a few years and then I randomly wasn't. Think I stopped watching a season or two post plane crash

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 08:32 PM

One out of two isn't bad!

I've only been watching it for a week or two
Not like SUPER into it, but i am enjoying it

Ahimsa 28-11-2023 08:32 PM

Good evening all!

Is Greys worth me starting? It seems REALLY long!

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 08:34 PM

Hey beth!
How are you?

You could give it a go!

long road 28-11-2023 08:43 PM

Well I will keep quiet in case I accidentally give any more spoilers!

Do you have a favourite character so far Beckie?

There are a lot of seasons but I did enjoy it just got bored eventually.

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 08:47 PM

All medical shows are kinda similar, so not surprising that there's a plane crash at some point! XD

I like Bailey.

Yeah that happened to me with walking dead

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 08:51 PM

I should give greys anatomy a go.

The nurse is setting up meds and I'm first in the queue!

Ahimsa 28-11-2023 08:52 PM

Do I need to focus on the storylines at all?

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 08:59 PM

That's good tamo!
Hated meds queue

Vaguely, beth.
I don't fully focus on anything but still enjoying it

long road 28-11-2023 09:00 PM

True it's the same with non medical soaps, nearly always a plane crash or massive disaster at some point. I remember when neighbours had a plane crash.

Bailey is kick ass! I always liked her.

Walking Dead is like that. I read the graphic novels and part of the point was trying to survive an apocalypse things just aren't going to work out happily ever after its always going to be a grind until you die. Not the best for a TV show though!

Good work being first in the meds queue Tamo!

I wouldn't say you massively need to focus on storylines. There is a fair amount of personal drama between surgical / medical bits but it's easy to follow.

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 09:05 PM

Yep! Always!

Bailey is awesome!

It just got a bit boring. Like zombies, settlement, settlement goes wrong, more zombies and so on!
It does make you think though, it's not the zombies you should be looking out for, it's other people. Zombies just want to eat your brains, people can just f you over

tamobhuuta 28-11-2023 09:06 PM

I'm all medsed up now a bit of green wing before bed.

Cacoethes 28-11-2023 09:16 PM

Good plan!

Cacoethes 29-11-2023 08:20 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 10:55 AM

Morning Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 29-11-2023 11:46 AM


Pretty awful
But I'll live

How are you?

Zurg 29-11-2023 12:23 PM

Hi Tamo and Beckie :)
Is there anything we can do to help, Beckie??

one_step_closer 29-11-2023 01:06 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Sorry to hear that, Beckie. We are here if there's anything even tiny we can do.

How are you Tamo and Kat?

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 01:08 PM

Sorry to hear that Cacoethes.

I thought my ward rounds was tomorrow, turns out it's in 5 minutes!

How are you Zurg and osc?

one_step_closer 29-11-2023 01:17 PM

Ahh! Good luck, Tamo!

I'm just trying to be ok as usual.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 01:53 PM

Trying to be ok can be very difficult.

long road 29-11-2023 03:43 PM

Hey everyone,

I fell out of bed and hit my head last night so not doing my best. Been using ice and paracetamol and resting and going to see the nurse at my GP surgery this afternoon.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 03:46 PM

That sucks :( good luck with the nurse.

not_so_insig 29-11-2023 04:24 PM

Hello all. I have had a new phone. My existing case and charger fit it so happy days!

one_step_closer 29-11-2023 04:29 PM

Ouch, Jen.

How's your day going, Tamo?

I take it it's the same model of phone then, Dawn?

not_so_insig 29-11-2023 04:50 PM

No its the next one up from my last phone Lindsay. Just lucky that's all. Apologies for any American spellings that I might have atm it's stuck on USA English and until I work out how to change it I am stuck.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 05:01 PM

Oo fancy new phone. Have you worked out how it all works or is it the same as the old one?

I'm ok thanks osc. How's your day?

not_so_insig 29-11-2023 05:11 PM

It's the same as my old phone tamobhuuta.

Worked out how to change it to UK English except for WhatsApp. That's stuck on USA English atm.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 05:18 PM

Naughty WhatsApp

long road 29-11-2023 05:43 PM

Looks like I have a minor concussion, have a swollen bit on top of my head. No need to get a CT scan or go to A&E thankfully. Just get lots of rest and take painkillers etc. and get back in touch with GP or 111 if I start feeling worse. Could take up to two weeks to recover. I really need to stop falling as much with my seizures this is the second concussion in just over a month!

tamobhuuta 29-11-2023 05:43 PM

I've ordered myself some short charging cables so I can charge things in my room.
