Cacoethes 27-09-2021 11:40 AM

I did get some tasty things!
Yes it is. But it's cheaper to get the longer time range. And I'm not doing anything today.

Well done on the hair washing and clothes washing!
The beep on my washer dryer is really loud.

tamobhuuta 27-09-2021 12:14 PM

Good afternoon.

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 12:19 PM

Hey tamo!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2021 01:03 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 01:11 PM

I'm ok thanks.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 27-09-2021 01:24 PM

I'm ok. My godmother can't visit today because of the petrol chaos so she's going to phone me. Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 01:27 PM

That's a shame.
This petrol thing has gotten completely out of hand

No plans for me apart from my tesco delivery.
I'm trying not to do too much today or tomorrow (though I have a nurse appointment tomorrow) because I'm at work for 6 days in a row from Wednesday!

one_step_closer 27-09-2021 01:45 PM

Hi Tamo, I'm sorry your godmother can't visit. Things are a mess in this country right now. I'm glad she's going to phone you at least.

Do you think you'll manage 6 days in a row Beckie?

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 01:53 PM

I don't know!
I've just done 4 days and it was ok.

tamobhuuta 27-09-2021 02:08 PM

6 days!!! I hope it's not stressful.

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 02:15 PM

Thanks!
Sundays seem to be the most stressful day because we do the Sunday roasts
Last Saturday wasn't too bad but they are generally manageable.
Good thing I like my job!

not_so_insig 27-09-2021 03:37 PM

Hello all. I have an tesco shopping order coming tomorrow. Mine is between 2 and 3 though.

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 03:43 PM

Mine came earlier!

not_so_insig 27-09-2021 03:57 PM

Any tasty treats Beckie?

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 04:08 PM

A few!
Are you getting any tasty things in yours?

one_step_closer 27-09-2021 05:27 PM

*jealous of potential treats from Tesco*

I rarely get a delivery because it's hard to buy things up to 40 so they don't add extra money to my order.

nonperson 27-09-2021 05:38 PM

I totally read that as "threats from Tesco" and was wondering for a moment what the hell had happened!

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 05:47 PM

I don't get deliveries often either

Lol np!

nonperson 27-09-2021 05:52 PM

I've never had a supermarket delivery but if this fuel thing doesn't resolve shortly I might have to as there are no shops in walking distance! Although will the delivery van have fuel...?

Cacoethes 27-09-2021 06:06 PM

Oh no! I'm lucky asda is so close

I know some people have been having some problems with asda deliveries but not actually heard anything about any other supermarket deliveries having issues

not_so_insig 27-09-2021 07:26 PM

I have some sweets for my happy box coming in mine plus some mince pies. I find it easy to get to the 40 but I get my cat food which is over 10 plus I only have my tesco delivery once an month so by the time I have added bread/cakes/crisps/lemonade it's over the limit.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 09:01 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 09:12 AM

Morning Beckie how are you doing today? Any plans?

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 09:17 AM

I'm ok thank you!
I need to pick up my medication and I have to go to the next town to get my staples out this evening. But not sure of the time yet.
Oh and my cpn should be calling at 10

How are you?
Do you have plans?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 10:36 AM

Hi guys :)

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 10:36 AM

Hey tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 10:52 AM

I'm ok thanks. I had two phone calls yesterday so I'm hoping for a quiet day today. Sounds like you've got a fun day...

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 11:06 AM

I've decided I can't be bothered to get my prescription today (I have enough meds until tomorrow)
So just the annoying journey to the next town at 6pm!
Ugh

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 11:08 AM

Do you have an appointment?

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 11:11 AM

You seem to live far away from resources Beckie. Will you definitely get your meds tomorrow? How did it go with your CPN?

Hi Dawn and Tamo.

I hope you do have a quiet day Tamo, people don't realise how draining small things can be.

How are you Dawn?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 11:15 AM

Hi osc how are you?

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 11:18 AM

Kind of tamo.
Apparently they will call at 6:35 with an appointment but the appointment will be shortly after they call. So I'm just going to go there for that time and hope the appointment is soon after. The annoying thing is that there isn't even a coffee shop I can sit in!

That's the trouble with living in a small town lindsay!
I will definitely get my meds tomorrow!
Cpn was fine. She just asked all the usual questions and I gave the usual answers!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 11:18 AM

I'm going to the gym with my support worker and another service user at 1pm. I really don't want to go but have to. I'm feeling loads of difficult emotions which makes it hard to get on ok in the gym.

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 11:19 AM

Ninja. I hope everything works out and you don't have to wait long for your appointment. Don't you even have nurses at your GP surgery who can take out staples?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 11:23 AM

Cacoethes, my mum had the same problem when she took my sister for her ketamine clinic.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 11:28 AM

I hope the gym goes ok lindsay

Thank you
All nurse appointments have gone a bit weird since covid.
I would usually get them taken out at either my gp surgery or the other surgery in town. But sometimes you get sent to the next town or another town that is inaccessible by public transport!
I think because nurse appointments get booked up weeks in advance this was the only appointment available. And obviously I need the staples out within the 10 days.

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 01:06 PM

My brother got given an appointment at the fracture clinic but when he got there they were just doing first come first served.

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 01:08 PM

Also I have had to stop doing the dishwasher just now because I was too spasmy.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 01:18 PM

That's annoying tamo!

Ryl weather report time!
It's pouring down!

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 01:55 PM

It's pouring down here too Beckie. I am waiting for my tesco shopping order. Hopefully there's no substitutions.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 01:58 PM

I hope it stops by the time I have to go out

Fingers crossed dawn!

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 02:02 PM

Or if there is it's not on the essentials like cat food or yoghurts. It's local yoghurts which aren't stocked everywhere.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 02:22 PM

Most of my coke zero wasn't available.
And they gave me caffeine free instead of normal coke zero :plain:

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 03:56 PM

Oh no, caffeine free stuff is disgusting.

I hope you have better luck with your delivery Dawn.

It's pouring down here too.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 04:13 PM

Indeed.
But I wasn't going to return it because I had run out. So it's better than nothing!

It's sunny here now!
British weather :eyeroll:

Did you go to the gym lindsay?

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 04:15 PM

I had 2 substitutions. One was my aero (I asked for peppermint and they gave me plain) the other was my potato salad and coleslaw (instead of being in one carton they gave me a tub of each) which was ok.

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 05:10 PM

I put on my heating for a tiny while. It's cold in my house but I don't want my neighbours see that I'm using my heating.

Yes I went to the gym, I'm getting bored of it on top of battling through the difficult MH stuff that comes with it.

I'm glad you didn't get bad substitutions Dawn.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 05:23 PM

It is chilly today
I refuse to put my heating on though!

Sorry to hear that lindsay
It does sound like a struggle

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 05:56 PM

The rain here comes and goes.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 06:35 PM

Same tamo

I got a call from the nurse
My appointment is in 10 minutes
I've just arrived in the town!
Good timing!
