Nap definitely sounds like a plan!
That's a lot of work!

I'm still pretty meh. But we move.

long road 19-02-2024 06:58 PM

I have been resting a lot today as not feeling the best. Had a nap before lunch and then been chilling in bed listening to music fir last couple of hours

Cacoethes 19-02-2024 07:00 PM

Resting seems like the best thing to do

Ahimsa 19-02-2024 07:04 PM

rest is good!

long road 19-02-2024 07:08 PM

Restingnis my speed today. Hoping if I rest enough today I will have energy to enjoy my birthday tomorrow. Not got any major plans but would like to go out for a meal and get some cake too.

Cacoethes 19-02-2024 07:47 PM

Rest is good!

Fingers crossed for more energy tomorrow jen

tamobhuuta 19-02-2024 08:40 PM

No fruit toast!!!

Wishing good rests to you all.

not_so_insig 19-02-2024 08:48 PM

Sorry you didn't get what you wanted Jen food wise. Hopefully you'll enjoy your birthday tomorrow. Hope you have cake!

one_step_closer 19-02-2024 09:02 PM

What cake would you like, Jen?

long road 19-02-2024 09:26 PM

I am not sure what cake to get, going to chose one from the bakery tomorrow. My favourite kinds of cake are carrot cake, apple cake and chocolate cake. But will depend what takes my fancy on the day!

one_step_closer 19-02-2024 10:15 PM

They all sound tasty. Choose wisely!

Theyíve just done kareoke here. Thatís three nights in a row. They were singing Scottish songs and going wild at the end. Was kind of entertaining.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 06:15 AM

Morning everyone!
And happy birthday jen!!!
*sets off party popper*

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 08:58 AM

Morning Beckie, how are you?

*joins the celebration of Jen* Happy Birthday!

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 09:19 AM

Morning lindsay
I'm tired.
I've been for a run, showered, cleaned out the boys, put washing away and went to asda.
I may have overdone it...

How are you?

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 09:26 AM

That does sound like a lot. Can you do your best to rest now? Is there anything else you need to do today?

Iím seeing the psych today so a little anxious but sheís ok and i already know the plans except for if iíll get support when iím discharged. She has a lot of patients on the ward so the waiting will be difficult.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 09:36 AM

I can. I'm too exhausted to move currently
I'm seeing my new CC at 10 and have krav maga tonight. So i have a good chunk of time where i can rest.

I hope it goes well with the psych. Hopefully she'll be able to put something in place

not_so_insig 20-02-2024 09:57 AM

Hello all. I am awake early because I am taking my cat to the vet.

tamobhuuta 20-02-2024 10:26 AM

Morning everyone. I was up earlier than I needed for Mass. Now I'm waiting for a lift, but I'm walking back.

Happy birthday lr!

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 10:29 AM

I hope you enjoy it tamo

Zurg 20-02-2024 10:33 AM

Morning peeps :)
Beckie, you have been so busy already.
Hope the psych doesn't let you wait all day, Lindsay.
Hope mass is good today, Tamo.
Hope the vet trip will be okay for both you and kitty, Dawn.
Now, a song:
Happy birthday to youuuuuu
And i went to the zoo(oooo)
And i saw a gorilla
And i thought it was youuuuuuu

Thank you, thank you *bows*
You are the best audience i've EVER sung for!!!!

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 10:42 AM

I hope your new CPN is a good one Beckie. Every time i go to type cpn i first write con! Some of them are more con than cpn really.

Hope everything goes well at the vet, Dawn.

Hope you enjoy Mass Tamo.

*applauds Kat* Did you make that up? I havenít heard that version.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 10:59 AM

Hey zurg!
How are you?

Well, she can't be any worse than the last one! He set the bar pretty low XD

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 11:20 AM

Yeah, i donít think he had much sense!

Zurg 20-02-2024 11:35 AM

Nah Lindsay, i stole it from a book my friend bought in London more than 25 years ago. It was a sort of diary by Bart Simpson with a lot of ideas to do his favourite pranks XD
But since this happened in text, you were all spared the horrors of me actually singing!!!

I'm trying to do some practical things today because the Vibe is just right. But i am facing grave difficulties rn as Findus is tired and it's time for his late morning/afternoon nap. So instead of being proactive, i am considering what to have for lunch…

not_so_insig 20-02-2024 12:01 PM

My cat is home. He had some treatment and was given some medication to try. He was very good and although he had some uncomfortable procedures done to him he didnt bite the vet.

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 12:14 PM

I hope you still feel productive after Findus has his nap.

Thatís good Dawn. I hope the medication helps.

tamobhuuta 20-02-2024 12:16 PM

I'm glad your cat was ok at the vet insig.

Beautiful singing Zurg.

Mass was good, stressful but worth it.

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 12:20 PM

Hopefully that stressful feeling will decrease with time Tamo. Iím glad you felt it was worth it.

tamobhuuta 20-02-2024 12:26 PM

I just need to get used to crowds again.

How are you osc?

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 12:31 PM

Does findus get grumpy when he's tired?
The piggos have an afternoon nap. Usually around midday.

Glad it went well tamo, hopefully you'll get more used to it.

Seeing new CC went well.
Is it bad that I'm shocked she was both on time AND genuinely wanted to help?? She was here for 1.5 hours just getting to know me and the signs when i get unwell etc.

Zurg 20-02-2024 12:39 PM

Nah, Findus only really gets grumpy when i pet him too much. Then he grunts at me and withdraws. True rage causes foot thumping though. Like, loud sudden noises or me running after him to put him in this vet-bag when he needs the vet. He's quite mellow most of the time :)
The birdies are the real drama queens….!!!

Zurg 20-02-2024 12:40 PM

I forgot the important bit: i am both in shock and awe over a mental health employee that shows up on time AND is helpful!!!!! I thought they were legit just a myth….

tamobhuuta 20-02-2024 12:44 PM

That's really positive Cacoethes. I hope she has helpful plans.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 12:52 PM

That's fair. I think I'd get grumpy if i was pet too much too tbh XD

I know! I also thought they were a myth!
It does make me suspicious! :ermm:

Thanks tamo!

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 02:04 PM

I can definitely understand your suspicion Beckie. Hopefully she is an exception to the Ďruleí.

Are your birds very vocal Kat?

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 02:08 PM

Hope so!

How's you day going lindsay?

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 02:11 PM

Seems like a good first meeting anyway.

I have seen the psych. Will prob post about it in my thread.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 02:16 PM

Yeah it was

Hope it went ok

Zurg 20-02-2024 03:06 PM

Lindsay, let's just say that the term “suffering in silence” is vastly unknown among birds…

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 03:10 PM

L used to have a parrot, he was rather loud!

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 03:40 PM

Haha! Crookshanks is very vocal too unless heís sleeping, eating, or sitting with me. He screeches at me when he wants attention and also mumbles to himself when he walks up and down the stairs. The mumbling can be cute.

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 04:21 PM

Animals can be so demanding!
The piggos aren't too loud most of the time, but they certainly make it known when they haven't been fed on time!

Krav maga has been cancelled tonight and i am sad

Thank you everyone. I have had a good day so far. Had breakfast in bed and presents. Then a nap. Then went out for a meal at a cafe at the seaside (I had gammon, egg, chips, onion rings and peas), sat in car and watched the sea and the dogs playing on the beach for a bit and then popped home via the bakery where I chose a apple sultana cake for tea tonight.

Sending lots of love. And internet cake!

tamobhuuta 20-02-2024 04:56 PM

I'm glad you're having a good birthday lr :)

Cacoethes 20-02-2024 05:07 PM

Sounds like a lovely day jen!

one_step_closer 20-02-2024 05:10 PM

Iím glad youíve been able to do lots of nice things Jen.

not_so_insig 20-02-2024 05:39 PM

I am glad you're having a good birthday Jen. Plus I am glad to know that you have a cake.

Cacoethes 21-02-2024 05:18 AM

Morning everyone

one_step_closer 21-02-2024 09:50 AM

Morning Beckie, canít you for once let someone else be the first poster of the day? :laugh: How are you this morning?

Cacoethes 21-02-2024 10:02 AM

Neveeeerrr :tongue2:
I would much rather my body would let me sleep past 7am and not be the first poster tbh XD

I'm not 100% but we move

How are you?
