long road 01-12-2023 12:29 PM

Morning everyone

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 01:44 PM

Hey jen
How are you?

long road 01-12-2023 02:19 PM

Not really sure. Things are still a bit mixed up in my mind from head injury. But have made it to the sofa to watch classic doctor who and drink coffee.

Hoping to feel well enough to run honey heist tonight.

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 02:49 PM

Hopefully if you rest today you'll feel well enough
*crosses fingers*

Ahimsa 01-12-2023 03:11 PM

Hi all,

I've popped home for my lunch - sounds like you've all got busy days!

LR I hope you're feeling slightly better? :(

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 03:27 PM

What's for lunch beth?

I'm back from aldi.
Also popped into piercing shop to get the piercing check i had to cancel last week.

one_step_closer 01-12-2023 05:01 PM

Hope everyone has had at least an ok day so far.

I was going to put up a mini Christmas tree but as soon as I got it out Crookshanks came over and started eating it so I can't have it so he has really annoyed me!

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 05:04 PM

Been mostly boring but fine

Oh no! That's a shame.
Is there any kind of tree he won't eat?

tamobhuuta 01-12-2023 05:22 PM

Sorry about your tree osc!

I'm doing a good job of distracting :) and they've turned the sockets in my room on so I can charge things.

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 05:28 PM

That's good tamo!

tamobhuuta 01-12-2023 05:50 PM

Was your piercing ok?

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 05:57 PM

Yeah they were fine.
My piercing place automatically books in piercing checks when you get one.
Good service really

tamobhuuta 01-12-2023 06:12 PM

That is good.

We've had a bit more snow. But now the apocalypse of snow is old news and the general annoyance of society has resumed. Pah!!!

It is every day, my next day off is the 9th - only 8 days to do! (I was last off on the 29th)

Ooh what piercing Beckie? Have you got something new?

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 06:59 PM

Nothing new.
Was just old piercings check up. The nip and the collabone surface one
Definitely would have got a new piercing if i could afford it!

one_step_closer 01-12-2023 07:18 PM

Crookshanks eats artificial trees and real plants. I got some nice fake daisies and sunflowers and he ate the leafy bits on them too so I had to get rid of them.

Keep going, Tamo!

What would be your next piercing, Beckie?

Good luck with the next days of work, Beth.

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 07:26 PM

What a naughty boy he is!

I asked the new guy at the studio and he suggested tragus. So it'll probably be that!

Zurg 01-12-2023 07:52 PM

All decorative features have to be out of bunny range in my flat :D
Last year, Findus thought the Christmas tree was scary but he’d probably eat it or destroy it if he Got the chance….
Like my books. And rugs. And furniture. And walls….. feisty wee beast, he is!!!
But he's so cute and fluffy. I can't be mad at him <3

Cacoethes 01-12-2023 08:19 PM

Findus always sounds like he's planning some kind of destruction!

tamobhuuta 01-12-2023 08:30 PM

Our cat Z used to love the baubles on the Christmas tree.

Zurg 01-12-2023 11:26 PM

In the end it'll probably be cats and bunnies that cause the end of the world. I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised!!!! XD

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 10:00 AM

Morning guys. Am I first here? I hope everything is OK.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 10:47 AM


I'm still at L's. Will probably be heading off home soon because i need to feed the piggos

How are you this morning?

Zurg 02-12-2023 10:57 AM

Morning Tamo and Beckie :)
I had trouble staying asleep last night so i decided to take prn. But Findus wanted breakfast at his regular breakfast time so i Got up because feeling guilty over rabbit starvation is not cool.
What are you up to today??
The piggies will be happy to see you, Beckie. Especially when you open the frigde ;)

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 11:03 AM

Someone kicked off in the middle of the night, that wasn't fun. Then they woke me up 8.30 for meds! I'm back in bed now.

I hope your animals appreciate you.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 11:52 AM

Morning zurg!

Yes, rabbit starvation is indeed not cool!
Neither is piggie starvation, which of course they acted like i hadn't fed them in MONTHS when i got back!

Ugh, that's not fun tamo!

one_step_closer 02-12-2023 12:07 PM

Morning everyone. We had a bit of snow here but not much.

That sounds very annoying, Tamo. I hope the rest of your day is better.

Animals are dramatic!

Ahimsa 02-12-2023 12:10 PM

Morning all!

Hope you're toasty, warm and cosy!

What are you all up to today?

one_step_closer 02-12-2023 12:13 PM

Morning, Beth. How are you? I hope you have a good day.

I have done all of my main tasks.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 12:15 PM

Morning lindsay and beth!
How are you both?

No snow here still, just a lot of frost!

Animals are very dramatic!
The crisis team came as i was doing their breakfast and i was like, sorry guys, you'll have to wait until I've fed the ravenous guinea pigs XD

I'm not up to much. Need to clean the boys out..may go over to L's again later
How about you?

Ahimsa 02-12-2023 12:17 PM

Ahh I'm at work so not the best! I am however picking up new bedding after work so that's a positive.

Well done on productivity!

Zurg 02-12-2023 12:18 PM

I've cleaned my bathroom. Going to hoover in a bit. Then possibly crack out the christmas decor :D
If i can be arsed, after that ordeal, i might go and pick up a parcel. But it's really, really cold outside so i'm not really in favour of leaving my flat… Not even Findus wanted to step outside today when i opened the door to the balcony. He put his tiny nose out and then was like 'nope!!!' and turned around and ran under the couch.
The thing i miss with Guinea pigs are their dramatic sounds XD

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 12:22 PM

Ooh new bedding!

Well done zurg!
It is indeed really cold! Sort of weather where you don't want to do anything!

I also love the dramatic guinea pig sounds
Pippin especially is VERY dramatic!

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 03:10 PM

The day is too long when you get up at 8.30am

My big sister came to see me :)

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 03:15 PM

Weekend days are especially long in hospital
But I'm glad you had a visit to break up the day :)

I'm always up between 5-7am and the worst bit about it is the day feels super long!

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 03:53 PM

I go to bed as early as possible.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 04:06 PM

Yeah i do too tbh

not_so_insig 02-12-2023 04:43 PM

Hello all. I am feeling festive today as I have my Christmas t-shirt on and my Christmas earrings in.

one_step_closer 02-12-2023 04:47 PM

What's your new bedding like, Beth?

Well done with all you've managed, Kat!

Did you have a nice visit, Tamo? Anyone coming this evening?

How's your day going, Beckie?

What are your t-shirt and earrings like, Dawn? Thank you for the card, I got it today. I should be posting mine tomorrow or Monday.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 04:50 PM

My day is going ok.
Bit boring!
But managed to clean the boys out which is good!
And they are happy

How's your day going lindsay?

one_step_closer 02-12-2023 04:56 PM

Those fluffies will be loving life!

I've managed to keep myself occupied. Just hating that it's getting dark now.

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 05:48 PM

I'm a Christmas fan but there is too much Christmas music on the radio. Liking your outfit insig.

My visit was good thanks osc. My mum and other sister are coming at 6pm. Well done for staying occupied.

Well done for cleaning the piggies out Cacoethes.

not_so_insig 02-12-2023 06:04 PM

These are my earrings


And this is my tshirt


not_so_insig 02-12-2023 06:07 PM

I am surprised that you got my card Lindsay I only posted it the other day and it got sent with a second class stamp on. If anyone wants a card lmk.

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 06:15 PM

They are really cute insig!

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 06:19 PM

They're loving life even more now they've got dinner!

They always have magic radio (one of the worst stations, along with smooth radio) on at the ED team building. It is literally non stop Christmas music and it's awful.

Thanks tamo!

tamobhuuta 02-12-2023 06:47 PM

I like magic to go to sleep to usually but at night now they're playing nonstop Christmas, officially.

Cacoethes 02-12-2023 06:50 PM

Ugh. I'm sure even the most die hard Christmas fans would find that too much!

not_so_insig 02-12-2023 06:53 PM

Sounds a nightmare tamobhuuta
