How be poeple?

I was recommended a mentalh health/illness forum last week that is actually active :o but everytime I go there to try to start a conversdation or whatever I feel ver intimidated and end up coming back on here :laugh: not sure why

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 01:18 PM

Hey Hazel!
How are you?

Ryl is the far superior mh forum!

shadow-light 13-12-2021 02:01 PM

it really is, though a pitty (in a way) that's its not more active. Not that I want loads of people to be having mental health issues of course, but I do sometimes miss the way it was 10 or so years ago when you could bearly keep up with some threads

shadow-light 13-12-2021 02:02 PM

ok, I'm ok. Got a lot of zoom meetings today, also I accidently deleted my email account yesterday so trying to change my email with EVERYTHING at the moment :laugh:

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 02:06 PM

Yeah I know what you mean!

Oh nooo! What a nightmare!

shadow-light 13-12-2021 02:55 PM

it's a proper faff... you dont realise how many things are tied into your email until you no longer have the email

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 03:06 PM

That's true!
Everything requires email these days!

shadow-light 13-12-2021 03:59 PM

eugh, I can no longer access MSteams... I've missed the last 2 weeks of college so kind of wanted to see the slides to chatch up but no... apparently my account no longer exists

college tonight is going to fun trying to get that sorted

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 04:05 PM

Oh nooo!
Hopefully It'll be an easy fix!

not_so_insig 13-12-2021 04:27 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 04:32 PM

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 13-12-2021 04:39 PM

Hope you're ok Beckie.

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 04:40 PM

I'm ok thanks

How are you?

not_so_insig 13-12-2021 04:43 PM

I am currently in a food coma. Went for a Christmas meal and it was generous portions and so good.

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 04:48 PM

Oooh lovely!

not_so_insig 13-12-2021 05:06 PM

Except I had a muscle spasm during my meal and knocked my drink over. But everything else was so good.

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 05:07 PM

Easily done!
I'm glad you enjoyed it

not_so_insig 13-12-2021 05:26 PM

Thanks Beckie. What have you been doing so far today?

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 05:28 PM

Absolutely nothing!
I've had a very boring day
I did do some washing though
Will need to put that away at some point

one_step_closer 13-12-2021 06:28 PM

I'm glad you enjoyed your meal Dawn. I think the gym group are going for our Christmas lunch tomorrow instead of the gym but nothing fancy, just a a cafe or something. I don't think we've even decided yet. The support worker is going to phone us early to make plans so I'll need to set my sunrise alarm clock.

Will you be doing/watching anything better this afternoon Beckie? Well done for doing the washing.

Cacoethes 13-12-2021 06:41 PM

I hope you enjoy it lindsay, wherever it ends up being!

I'm listening to music at the moment!
Thanks :)

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 10:30 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 14-12-2021 11:40 AM

Hi Cacoethes :) how are you?

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 01:28 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Just been to the library, asda and got a new piercing!

How are you?

not_so_insig 14-12-2021 03:50 PM

Hello all. I have had a mixed day so far. Am expecting amazon to come estimate said 4.30 to 7.30 pm. Was going to use my slow cooker for lasagne today found I had no sauce. So I went to the post office today to post Lorraine's present. Long queue. Eventually got served and its OK there. Went to the co op for pesto and lasagne sauce. Got home made the lasagne put it in the slow cooker. Sat down to receive text from the chemist saying prescription is ready for collection. Now if they had sent this morning I could have collected it as the chemist is opposite the post office. I have decided that I am not going out again today. Knowing my luck the amazon order will come when my parents are here.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 05:07 PM

That's happened to me before.
Literally just got home and get a text from the pharmacy!

not_so_insig 14-12-2021 06:07 PM

Annoying isn't it Beckie? The medication is prn meds so it's not like mega urgent.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 06:23 PM

Very annoying!
Ok that's not too bad
At least you don't need them for tonight or anything

one_step_closer 14-12-2021 06:28 PM

Every service is a mess at this time of the year. I hope you get your parcel Dawn.

There's no point in me asking about your piercing Beckie because I know nothing about them. I'm glad you treated yourself though.

We weren't actually going on our lunch at the gym group so I had to do some exercise. Damn! We're going to Costa next week.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 06:46 PM

It's called a flat helix :tongue2:

How annoying!
Costa sounds good though
I like costa!

not_so_insig 14-12-2021 07:41 PM

My parcel has arrived. Annoyingly amazon despatched part of the order today so I have to go through it all again tomorrow.

I hope that you enjoy your costa Lindsay.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 08:28 PM

Didn't it give you the option to have it delivered at the same time?

not_so_insig 14-12-2021 09:23 PM

Yes but for some reason they despatched it today.

Cacoethes 14-12-2021 09:32 PM

Hm. Weird!

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 09:38 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:14 PM

Gosh you were up early Beckie. I am going to get my meds today hopefully as soon as the amazon order comes.

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:14 PM

Hi :) I just woke up! How are you?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:17 PM

I was up at around 8 but lay in bed for a bit!

I hope your amazon order comes soon dawn!
When's it due?

Hi tamo!
I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:23 PM

I'm ok - we've got our Christmas tree but I don't know when we will put it up and decorate. Do you have plans for Christmas?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:24 PM

I'm going to my mum's for Christmas :)

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:26 PM

A bit worried because I have had 2 letters with my full name on
I dread letters with my full name on. Especially as I think one is from the dwp.

tamobhuuta 15-12-2021 12:34 PM

Official letters are scarey.

Does that mean you get to see Jasmine?

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:36 PM

I HATE dwp letters!
Always scary!

Yes it does tamo :)
I'm hopefully seeing her this weekend too if mum's not busy
Last week they went to see my nanny

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 12:37 PM

I am off to my parents for Christmas. My cats are off on their hols too.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 12:41 PM

Lovely :)

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 01:08 PM

I have plucked up the courage to open the letters. One was the dwp telling me about a change in money coming in and the other was a letter regarding my coronavirus booster jab on Monday. The only other thing I had was a Christmas card but that didn't have my full name on so I knew I was safe.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 01:12 PM

That's not too bad then!

not_so_insig 15-12-2021 01:39 PM

Yep. I have just received my amazon order. It was the same person who delivered yesterday so at least she knew where to find my address.

Cacoethes 15-12-2021 01:49 PM

That's good
