Ah excellent!

one_step_closer 11-10-2020 03:04 PM

Why not try another language and educate yourself Beckie!

One of my cat's anal gland burst. It looks like a bomb has hit is bum area. I didn't know what it was and I was worried because it looked serious. It's not serious. The vet cleaned it and gave him pain relief and antibiotics. It cost my 95 because it's the weekend emergency vet and there will be more on top because of the pain relief etc and the vet seeing him again on Thursday. Sooooo expensive. I hope mister cat is ok and heals quickly.

nonperson 11-10-2020 03:16 PM

That happened to my cat too, Lindsay!

I had no idea what it was either and thought he'd been shot in the bum! He healed up really quickly though. Vets are expensive, it sucks. I also hope he gets better soon. Has he got the cone of shame?

not_so_insig 11-10-2020 03:30 PM

Sorry to hear your poor cat isn't ok Lindsay hope he's better soon.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 03:41 PM

Sorry to hear about your poorly cat lindsay
His poor bum!

one_step_closer 11-10-2020 05:16 PM

He doesn't have the cone of shame. Other cat keeps growling at him and won't cuddle in with him, probably because he smells like the vet.

nonperson 11-10-2020 05:19 PM

He's been contaminated. =(

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 05:25 PM

Awww bless him :(

nonperson 11-10-2020 06:08 PM

How's everyone this evening?

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 06:11 PM

I'm good!
Disappointed that I have to head to the airport tomorrow though!

How about you?

nonperson 11-10-2020 06:19 PM

Aw noo, how did that time go so quickly? =(

A bit off. Trying to keep distracted. Might put pizza in the oven in a bit.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 06:23 PM

I know! Doesn't seem like I've been here since Thursday!

Distracted is a good plan. And as you know, I'm pretty much always here to talk crap with!
Yummy pizza!

nonperson 11-10-2020 06:30 PM

I feel like I've shared some on the holiday with you, lol. Except the weather... and food and, well, all of it. >.>

It's just a frozen asda "takeaway" one but does have stuffed crust. Yum.

You better have had a real Italian pizza while you've been out there.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 06:39 PM

Haha! I wish I knew how to share photos on here. I'm totally crap with technology!

Ooo yummy stuffed crust!

Yes I have had real Italian pizza here!
And also saffron risotto which is a Milanese speciality I learnt on the tour today!
Apparently the origin is kind of a piss take.
A guy was working for his master painting one of the cathedrals, he added saffron to every colour to make it more vibrant. The master joked that he'd add saffron to his soup if he could! So at the master's wedding, he jokingly added some saffron to the risotto and that's that story!

nonperson 11-10-2020 06:49 PM

That's cool you've had a Milanese speciality. Interesting story too! Funny what little historical things become tradition.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 06:53 PM

I didn't even know I had!
I did wonder why my risotto was so brilliantly yellow lol!

nonperson 11-10-2020 07:18 PM

Yeah that's not what it normally looks like.

What're you going to be doing tomorrow?

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 07:22 PM

I won't check out until the last minute because my feet need a serious break from shoes!
So much blood!
And then find a bus to the airport and watch Netflix at the airport until my flight.
I want to get there really early because the traffic in Milan is INSANE and unpredictable. And I'm not sure of bus times. And it's like over an hour on the bus to the airport.

nonperson 11-10-2020 07:43 PM

Eek, use the time to rest and definitely don't leave it last minute to leave.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 07:45 PM

I never leave it last minute!
I always end up places waaay too early! Which is better than being late I suppose.
And I have my ipad to entertain me!

nonperson 11-10-2020 07:48 PM

I'm late or only just in time for most things unless it's very very important.

What's been your holiday highlight?

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 08:08 PM

I don't really know! Its all been pretty great!
The da vinci museum was awesome

not_so_insig 11-10-2020 08:24 PM

Glad you're having/had a good time Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 08:37 PM

Thanks Dawn :)

I'm heading to bed now. Tired after all I've been doing!
It's a change for me to be doing quite so much!
Good night everyone :)

nonperson 11-10-2020 08:44 PM

Night night, Beckie. Sleep well!

I'm tempted to do the same... although I've been doing nothing at all to make me tired. =/

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 09:10 AM

Hope you slept well np!

I had a hard time falling asleep because of the pain in my toes!
Just got the airport to get through then hopefully I can relax for a few hours.

Edit: also, I bought alcohol the other night at dinner. Glass of wine and a cocktail (because I'm sophisticated like that :p) and I didn't get IDd. Woe.

nonperson 12-10-2020 10:20 AM

Yeah, slept alright. Didn't go straight to bed though.

Did you have a mask on when you bought it though, Beckie?

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 10:22 AM

Glad you slept ok.

No I didn't because I was eating. Perhaps that's why!
We shall see because I asked my mum if she wanted anything from duty free and she said some sort of alcohol (tanquerey seville orange gin or something like that) and I'll be wearing a mask then so that's the real test!

chinahorse 12-10-2020 11:01 AM

Someone shoot me? I am so tired and have so much to do!

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 11:04 AM

Oh no Lillie!
Do you have to do it ALL today?

chinahorse 12-10-2020 11:15 AM

ERMmmmmmm
There are a few things I could delay until later this week I suppose. Its not like the bathroom and kitchen are going anywhere or are spectacularly dirty to need cleaning today. I just do it weekly. Suppose I could call my gran and dad another day too.

But I do need to do as much coursework as possible. And got to boots and get cat food and parcel up and send off some shoes that don't fit. And then I need to shower and put away/ do more washing up and laundry and other house jobs. I did do the bulk of the cleaning yesterday though.

Was meant to be going to the burns unit but cancelled. Way too fatigued.

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 11:38 AM

That's still quite a few things to do.
Especially if you're not feeling great.
I would come and help you out if I could!

chinahorse 12-10-2020 11:46 AM

Thats kind. Really wish someone could help out, The fibro is really the worst its been in over a year- the pain and fatigue is unbearable, never mind the stress of life right now.

Oh well, done some more coursework and laundry is on. About to go shower and clean the sink and loo and get dressed.

Plan to get the bus into town later. Takes the same amount of time as walking but am shattered and its wet.

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 11:53 AM

That sounds awful :(

You're doing so well despite everything.

The bus sounds like a good plan.

chinahorse 12-10-2020 01:43 PM

I wish I didnt have to be.

In better news I smell like a sherbet lemon after my shower.

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 01:53 PM

It's hard when you can just about deal with things and then everyone expects you to just keep going because you're 'doing so well'. It's not fair on you.

Ooo sherbet lemon! Dumbledore would approve. (Can't remember if you're into Harry Potter or not!)

The airport has a great few of the alps.

nonperson 12-10-2020 02:43 PM

*licks Lillie* Fizzy! I like sherbet lemon a lot. =D

Beckie, my first thought was Dumbledore, hehe. =P

chinahorse 12-10-2020 03:48 PM

I like harry potter yeah.

Hehe np. Not sure I *taste* like sherbet lemon though.

tamobhuuta 12-10-2020 04:05 PM

Hello everyone. I am spasming lots today, everything is hard, including typing! Well done me for writing this!

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 04:09 PM

It seems that the majority of people I know from here like Harry Potter!

I'm at the airport gate.
Over an hour early.
I've been walking like a complete idiot because my feet are so sore!

nonperson 12-10-2020 05:39 PM

Ask to use one of those electric buggy things that they drive around in airports. =(

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 08:36 PM

I should have done because I am in agony!
I'm waiting for the train now.
I'm just dreading getting up the steps at my home station!

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 08:41 PM

I also cried in passport control because I got trapped in one of the automatic passport things (i ****ing hate them) and they refused to believe me that it was stuck on 'remove passport' and told me that it would open any second. It didn't and they had to rescue me and just directed me to the human passport people because I was in floods of tears. Classy.

nonperson 12-10-2020 09:01 PM

Oh dear. That does sound like a bit of a nightmare though! =/

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 09:02 PM

Travelling doesn't usually stress me out so much!
I think it's because I'm in so much pain. Its lowered my threshold!!!

nonperson 12-10-2020 09:16 PM

Totally understandable!

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 09:20 PM

So embarrassing though!

What are you up to this very cold and wet evening?

nonperson 12-10-2020 10:34 PM

Typed out a reply and then forgot to press submit, whoops.

I was on the sofa hiding under a blanket, watching Big Bang Theory. Now I'm in bed, hiding under a duvet.

Hope you're home and warm now.

Cacoethes 12-10-2020 11:03 PM

We've all done it! Haha!

I've just got home and got into my PJs and bed.
I am so tired!

one_step_closer 13-10-2020 10:22 AM

Morning, how are you all? People are putting scaffolding up around my house, that was a surprise.
