Not too bad thanks. Just collected Leo after his little operation.

How was your meeting?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 03:21 PM

Aww. Does he have to wear the cone of shame?

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 03:26 PM

Well they’d told me he would but the nurse said because he wasn’t licking them there was no need. Of course since we got home all he’s done is lick!

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 03:32 PM

Bless him!
Hopefully he'll heal up soon!

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 04:15 PM

Spoke to vets and they said I need to go back and get him a cone. Grrrrr. Mustering energy to walk down there.

not_so_insig 26-04-2018 04:20 PM

I fell asleep.

My meeting went ok even though it was very long. 2 hours.

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 04:38 PM

What a pain Emma!

Glad your meeting went ok dawn

not_so_insig 26-04-2018 05:15 PM

I have had another annoying call for a Sheila. Despite me telling them before I am not Sheila and that there's nobody of that name here the social services department continue to phone me. Sigh another number to block.

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 05:30 PM

That’s annoying. Block the number for sure.

Just got home and the cones don’t fit- they’re way too big. Ffs!

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 05:40 PM

Oh no that's so annoying Emma!!

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 05:59 PM

Really annoying. Been to the vets three times today already! They’ve only got the next size down which I think will still be too big. Trying to work out whether it’s worth the walk there and back yet again’

How’s your day gone?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 06:04 PM

Is it a long walk?

I'm still on my harry potter marathon.
On order of the Phoenix now.
I have also just booked tickets to see the avengers in 4DX tomorrow
Its getting harder and harder to avoid spoilers for it!!

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 06:35 PM

Ah I really want to see that! Have fun :-)

It’s less than a mile but up a hill. Crisis averted anyway...phoned my mum for advice as she has a farm and she pointed out to me that you can make holes and adjust it. I really have no common sense!

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 06:38 PM

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to it!
Although just realised I should probably shower if I'm going 'out out' tomorrow!
Need to shave anyway after a month in hospital!

Ugh, hills are effort!
I wouldn't have thought of that either Emma!
Mums are great for advice!

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 07:53 PM

Has RYL been down for other people at points throughout the day?

Twice when I've tried to get on it said it couldn't find the server. I was thinking 'Oh no has THAT DAY come and RYL has disappeared.' Such sorrow.

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 07:58 PM

Yeah it’s been doing the same for me over the last week or so.

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 08:06 PM

I feel like we need an emergency plan for if RYL disappears. I'd be totally gutted, this has been a huge part of my life.

Did you manage to sort out the cone Emma?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 08:19 PM

It's been fine for me!!

I'd be gutted as well.
I live in this thread

Pomegranate 26-04-2018 08:20 PM

Do the mods or anyone know what’s causing it?

Yep! Cone all sorted and got one very grumpy kitty!

How was your day?

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 08:29 PM

Beckie you may have to be evicted from here!

Is 4DX that thing where the chair vibrates and air gets blown at you and stuff? Hope you enjoy the film.

I'm guessing that RYL isn't being technically updated etc so there are loads of glitches. Don't think the mods would be able to do anything.

Oh no, poor grumpy kitty. Are lots of treats in order?

My day has been full of avoidance of things!

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 08:36 PM

Noooo I don't want to be evicted!! D:

Yep thats what 4DX is. It's also 3D!

Poor kitty! Will he have to wear it long?

Any important things Lindsay?

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 08:38 PM

(One of my cats has just helped me click on reply).

4DX actually sounds horrible to me, but 3D stuff is cool.

I avoided the gym group and one of my friends. I'm a big avoider!

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 08:40 PM

I just thought of something to say about your possible eviction Beckie - can't pay we'll take it away. :-p Haha! That might be what ends up happening.

not_so_insig 26-04-2018 08:44 PM

I actually saw baliffs and a locksmith taking possession of a hair salon in town the other week. I wondered if it might be on the telly but I didn't see a camera crew.

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 08:48 PM

Haha!!
Yep that will probably be it :p

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 08:53 PM

RYL just died for me again there.

What are you all getting up to this evening?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:00 PM

Oh no!

I am continuing my harry potter marathon.
On half blood Prince now
Also doing an online shop that my dad is paying for

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 09:01 PM

Nice. Is it from Asda? Will you be buying the Asda equivalent of Tesco's Finest (don't know what that is) since your Dad is paying?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:03 PM

It is Sainsburys!
Difficult because I've never really been to a sainsburys before! Well, obviously I've been but never done a big shop from there.
Got a good amount. He said to include flowers as well because he was going to send flowers anyway.
So that's nice.
He's really making an effort to be a parent!

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 09:05 PM

Aww that's so lovely :-)

Do you have a favourite kind of flower?

I think I'm just about to head offline and do some reading then watch 999 What's Your Emergency.

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:08 PM

I don't think I have a favourite flower
Just bright ones that smell nice!

Good plan Lindsay.
When is 999 on?

one_step_closer 26-04-2018 09:09 PM

How are you going to know what they smell like if you're ordering online? :notsure:

It's on at 9pm.

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:16 PM

I don't.
But they are bright!

Thanks, i always seem to miss it but I'll try and watch it tonight!

not_so_insig 26-04-2018 09:38 PM

We were discussing period poverty in our meeting before. I have just discovered that I am on my period. Oh the irony.

Aubergine 26-04-2018 09:42 PM

Heya.

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:43 PM

That is ironic dawn

Hey Aubergine
How are you?

Aubergine 26-04-2018 09:47 PM

I'm OK. Bit anxious. Physically not quite right. I don't know. I've missed you all. Just been completely void of the ability to communicate!


How're you?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 09:49 PM

Sorry to hear that Aubergine
Being physically ill can really mess things up
We'll always be here!

I'm ok.
I'm really tired but I know I won't be able to get to sleep if I try

Aubergine 26-04-2018 09:58 PM

Thank you. <3


Oh that's rubbish, Beckie. :( Really tough when you can't sleep. Have you got things to keep you occupied?

Cacoethes 26-04-2018 10:04 PM

I seem to have misplaced my lorazepam but did find some diazepam, along with several medications I have not taken in years.
I need to sort out my cupboards!!
So yeah, taken a diazapem because I really can't face another night like the last 2 nights!!
Ramble ramble!

What are you up to this evening Aubergine?
Hope you'll be able to relax a bit

Aubergine 27-04-2018 12:14 AM

I hope you sleep, Beckie.


I did a group relaxation class, then came home and cuddled the cat, then ate something, then came to bed and comfort watched big bang theory. :)

Pomegranate 27-04-2018 01:04 AM

Sounds nice Aubergine. How’s Alec getting on?

Aubergine 27-04-2018 01:12 AM

Hey Emma. HOw're you doing? How's Leo?


Alec the cat is getting on really well. He likes to be in the same room as me. He often likes to squish as close to me as is possible and he has an amazingly loud purr. It's the first day it's been sunny and I've opened the lounge curtains, and he was basking in the sunshine. Will have to open the curtains for him from now on.

Pomegranate 27-04-2018 01:16 AM

Awwww sounds like he’s settling in really well and loves his new mummy! Has he had his jabs yet?

Leo is ok. He’s quite grumpy and feeling sorry for himself but keeps coming for cuddles (albeit grudgingly- as if he’s saying ‘I’m still cross, don’t let this make you think otherwise- now love me mummy!’

I’m not too bad thanks. No word from CMHT today. Just got into bed but not sure I’ll sleep.

Aubergine 27-04-2018 01:34 AM

Aww. He sounds lovely! I love how they've got such personality! :) HAs he got to go back to the vet for a check up?


Alec has had his first lot of jabs. He's got the second lot in a couple of weeks. :) He's also been flead and wormed and had a good check over by the vet. He's all healthy and didn't make a fuss about the vaccination. :) He will be microchipped when he's castrated, as it saves him a big needle when he's awake, as he'll be going under anyway.


What's keeping you awake?

not_so_insig 27-04-2018 01:39 AM

I am awake because I don't normally go to bed until 1 am!

Aubergine 27-04-2018 01:43 AM

Hey Dawn! How are you? :)


I was awake at 6am, so really need to sleep as I have a 9 hour day tomorrow. Bleurgh.

not_so_insig 27-04-2018 02:35 AM

Hopefully you're asleep now!

Cacoethes 27-04-2018 12:15 PM

Hey guys

Serendipity. 27-04-2018 12:18 PM

Morning! How are you all today?
