The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 02:42 PM

Its a book by Cathy Kelly. My mum and I loved her, we used to swap books. I’ve read every one of her books. I like doing things that still remind me of her now the edge of grief has mostly settled down.

I know what you mean Lillie! Soot is walking around the house death wailing because everyone except me and him is asleep.

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 02:45 PM

I'm glad you have a way to connect to your Mum, Alison.

Feeding times have changed here just for today since the clocks went forward. The cats seem to understand.

nonperson 29-03-2020 03:01 PM

Are they getting their food an hour early?

tamobhuuta 29-03-2020 03:11 PM

It just snowed here!

nonperson 29-03-2020 03:14 PM

There was a snow flurry here earlier and I thought I was imagining it!

My mum had hail apparently. o.o

chinahorse 29-03-2020 03:19 PM

Very odd weather at the minute. Blue skies and sunny here.

Ivejuat come to lie knmy bed and try and nap because I didnt sleep well and disturbed thecat and now hes grumpy at me.

tamobhuuta 29-03-2020 03:31 PM

I hope you have a restful nap china.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 03:40 PM

Hey guys
Blue skies and sunny here but also windy and presumably cold

I've been in bed all day apart from getting up for meds and lunch

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 04:19 PM

Its cold here but it is sunny.

Just came back from Sainsburys and was stopped by the police. At least they’re taking it seriously now.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 05:22 PM

That's good that they are taking it seriously
I just wonder how they will know how much exercise people are doing
Like whether they are going on more walks than one or whatever

chinahorse 29-03-2020 05:46 PM

Its more to act as a deterrent to people surely? Like people are less likely to drive to the beach to walk their dog, or police now have the power to disperse teenagers in the park etc. I dont think if you quietly went out for two 30 min walks on your own every day in a spot with no people and stayed apart from those you did meet theyd care that much.

one_step_closer 29-03-2020 05:59 PM

People are still gathering at parks in towns nearby me. The sunshine is bringing them all out. I don't know if some people realise how serious things are.

chinahorse 29-03-2020 06:21 PM

You can report them to the police.

Cacoethes 29-03-2020 06:51 PM

That makes sense Lillie

People are stupid

The Worst Witch 29-03-2020 09:54 PM

People are stupid!

All the families and things have been taking their children to the park and things, they've had to close the gate on our local park because it was overrun by families. This is not a holiday, people are dying and everyone is treating it like one big holiday. It's disgusting.

nonperson 30-03-2020 10:07 AM

Morning all.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 10:31 AM

Hey np. One day my phone will not autocorrect you to no. Today however is not that day.

I've cleaned the bathroom and showered. Whatre you up to?

nonperson 30-03-2020 10:50 AM

I don't mind being no. =)

That's more productivity than I've managed so far. I've had breakfast and am now sitting with the cat on my lap pondering what to do.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 10:54 AM

Hey no :laugh:

Morning everyone.

You're very productive all the time Lillie.

Cat on lap means you can't move NP.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:00 AM

Morning Lindsay. =P

It does mean I can't move but I do feel like I should be doing something more productive.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 11:03 AM

You could do some arm exercises.

You don't really have to be productive all the time though.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:11 AM

I'm unproductive most of the time. =/ And I'm used to being active all the time at work so feel like I should be up and doing something.

I might get a hot beverage and finish some colouring I started yesterday.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:12 AM

I set goals for the day and then usually achieve 1 or 2 of them and feel like a failure.

Hmmm take 900 photos of the cat like I would?

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:14 AM

I'm the same, Lillie. Achieving one thing is still something though!

I did take some photos of him the other day and have charged up my old DSLR so he'll probably be my test subject. =)

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:15 AM

I hope we'll get to see :-)

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:16 AM

For sure.

He's so hard to photograph though - dark face and pale body, it's an exposure nightmare!

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:18 AM

You'll have to hone your skills!

I just got a letter about my PIP. They are increasing it by one pound a week lol.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:26 AM

Definitely. =)

Ooo yay! That's like an extra pack of biscuits a week.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:32 AM

Not gunna lie itll be a bottle of pepsi max probably.

Am gunna use the current situation to try and start eating properly again. Now I cant just live on junk I buy on the way to work.

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 11:44 AM

Morning guys
I kept getting bothered by various people this morning so I am awake against my will

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:46 AM

I know what you mean about getting back into healthy food habits. I'm trying to exercise some portion control to make supplies last longer.

I'm going to run out of chocolate soon though.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:47 AM

Morning Beckie. That's rubbish! What're you going to do now you're up?

chinahorse 30-03-2020 11:50 AM

Oh boo beckie.

Lol no. I ran out of snacks on day 1. Good thing I have to leave the house twice a week for work.

nonperson 30-03-2020 11:57 AM

There's not even a shop anywhere nearby that I can pop into during my daily(ish) walk for exercise!

chinahorse 30-03-2020 12:10 PM

That sucks. I can post you some stuff if you want?

nonperson 30-03-2020 12:16 PM

Nah that's ok. =)

I can call on some local resources if need be and I'm gonna have to venture out and do a big shop at some point too.

tamobhuuta 30-03-2020 12:30 PM

Hi everyone. My achievement for the morning was putting on clothes.

chinahorse 30-03-2020 01:12 PM

Well done tamo.

I've put some laundry on and am doing crochet. Will have lunch soon and then maybe a nap. And I need to take my chipped horrid nail varnish off.

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 02:04 PM

Well done everyone for doing stuff. :thumbup:

I hoovered and put the washing on.

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 02:06 PM

Well done for doing stuff guys!

I wanted to go to morrisons for snacks and coke zero but they are now not letting anyone off the ward at all. But for some reason this girl is allowed off the ward with her mum for 8 hours.
Why is that ok but walking to morrisons isn't?!

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 02:07 PM

That is quite annoying Beckie. Do you have any snacks at all?

not_so_insig 30-03-2020 02:28 PM

Afternoon all. I woke up at 2 pm. Unfortunately I am in pain today due to time of the month. I might dig out my hot water bottle.

nonperson 30-03-2020 02:42 PM

I've changed the bed, flipped the mattress and done the hoovering.

Cat is back on my lap so I think that's put an end to my productivity. =P

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 02:59 PM

I have no snacks and no coke zero :(
I told the nurse that it's unfair that people can go out with their families but we can't walk down the road to the shop. She's going to put it to management.

Well done np!
Well yes, you can't move a sleeping cat!

one_step_closer 30-03-2020 03:29 PM

Oh no Beckie :( I hope you can get to the shop. I have an Asda order soon, will virtually share my things with you.

Poor you Dawn, I hope you can get some relief.

That's a lot NP.

nonperson 30-03-2020 03:55 PM

How did you manage to get a delivery slot, Lindsay? =/

Cacoethes 30-03-2020 04:04 PM

It's not looking likely that I'll get to the shop anytime soon

I hope your asda order has everything in it lindsay!

not_so_insig 30-03-2020 04:56 PM

I have a hot water bottle now on my stomach. I am freezing though so had a latte.

tamobhuuta 30-03-2020 05:07 PM

Proper latte from a machine or sachet?

Koala hugs 30-03-2020 05:34 PM

nesquick is preferable to crusha any day :P hope everyone is ok.
