Dawn, I finished the cupcake cafe book. Found it quite hard going for a book that I assumed would be an easy read. It was ok though. Do you want me to send it to you since it's on your wish list, it would save you having to buy it.

one_step_closer 11-05-2022 01:51 PM

Thanks Beckie. How is your day going? How are your legs and feet after yesterday?

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 02:07 PM

Not bad thanks!
Been to post office, picked up meds, put meds in dosset box, did washing, put away washing, sorted out mattress and chairs for removal people, taken out bin and recycling. Think that's it! Just got to wait for the removal people to come later. They said 'late pm' so I'm not really sure when that is!
My legs are a bit stiff but walking has helped and they don't hurt much now! Just need to build up my stamina again!

one_step_closer 11-05-2022 02:10 PM

You've been doing so much! It's good to get things done. Are you having a rest before the removal people come?

RYL bin day :-D I'll be putting mine out in a couple of hours.

The council are currently cutting my grass. I'm lucky with that.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 02:15 PM

It feels good to do stuff!
Oh i also have amazon parcels coming!
Yeah i am resting now. Catching up with some programmes that i keep forgetting to watch! Lol

Ooh yes bin day!

That's good. Cutting the grass is one of my least favourite jobs! Luckily my neighbour does it for me! I've never asked her to, she just does it.

not_so_insig 11-05-2022 02:43 PM

I am trying out my new amazon purchase today (a kitchen gadget). I received it yesterday and it was very heavy to carry. Plus I had another parcel so I was carrying 17 kgs in the end. It says that it shouldn't be operated by persons of reduced mental capabilities. I wonder if that means mentally ill people o.0

not_so_insig 11-05-2022 02:46 PM

Also Lindsay I would like the book if you have the time to send it. I think you have my address already but if you're not sure send me a pm.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 04:09 PM

My amazon parcel isn't coming until between 6:15-9:15

It's raining A LOT!

not_so_insig 11-05-2022 04:16 PM

It's not raining here.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 04:26 PM

Been raining all day here

not_so_insig 11-05-2022 04:47 PM

I have put out my recycling boxes. Just gotta put the paper bag out now but have some cardboard boxes that need dismantling to go in it hence why I havent put it out now.

one_step_closer 11-05-2022 04:51 PM

How can you both always have things coming from Amazon? I never seem to need/want anything.

Your neighbour really is a star Beckie.

I do still have your address Dawn. I'll send the book when I can. I think the 'reduced mental capabilities' means learning disabilities. I hope you enjoy your kitchen gadget.

It's been raining on and off here all day.

not_so_insig 11-05-2022 04:55 PM

Thanks Lindsay. I am in no hurry so just send it when you have the time.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 04:59 PM

I don't really know lindsay!

Yes she is a star!

I wonder what time removal guys will get here.
What is 'late pm'?

one_step_closer 11-05-2022 05:01 PM

I hope you enjoy the book Dawn.

I have no idea when late PM is. I would have thought it would just be late afternoon. It's annoying having to wait especially when you haven't been given a specific time.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 05:19 PM

It is rather annoying!
Oh well, not like I'm doing anything!

nonperson 11-05-2022 05:42 PM

Evening all.

I'd say late PM 5pm ish! But it could technically mean 11pm too...

Zurg 11-05-2022 05:56 PM

I wish there was a world wide common system about times and what is considered, for example, late pm…..!!!! In science we have the si system, why don't we make an 'acceptable times considered late or early pm/am for rude people who care not to be specific'???

Ahem. I might be a very grumpy, old lady today. But i am most days and it'd be Way easier for me if the world would just adapt to that!!!! There's total anarchists everywhere. People who can't be specific about delivery times. People who break all social conduct clues and insist on speaking to you even though you're wearing headphones. People in general!!!!

nonperson 11-05-2022 06:02 PM

People suck.

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 06:08 PM

People do indeed suck!!!

I hope they turn up soon because i want to shower

Zurg 11-05-2022 07:11 PM

You just jinxed it Beckie. Now they won't turn until 11 pm

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 07:18 PM

Oh nooooo!!! D:

At least my amazon parcel arrived

Zurg 11-05-2022 08:24 PM

What did you buy???? Something amazing??? Something extraordinaire??? Something that Will outlast everything else???? A puppy??? :D

Cacoethes 11-05-2022 08:36 PM

Sadly nothing as exciting as a puppy!!!

I got a new lanyard for work (it's black with white stars!) And a **** ton of 3 in 1 caramel coffee sachets!

Zurg 12-05-2022 08:24 AM

It's okay. There Will be other opportunities for a puppy later!!!!

Having a morning crisis. I have an appointment at the psych hospital with my psychologist. There's a million good reasons to actually go there and have the appointment. But right now i want to go to bed. Take a nap. Pretend the world doesn't exist. I'm not even sure i want to be in the world right now…. I sure as hell don't want to sit in an obnoxious pink waiting area and try to look like i'm keeping it together. Yes, our psych hospital has been painted entirely pink in all the areas that are for people who are not admitted but just recieving day treatment. If you listen very closely you can hear me doing a facepalm over this. Pink is evil!!!

Also, good morning!!!

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 08:42 AM

Pink doesn't sound great tbh!
But you should definitely go to your appointment!!!


one_step_closer 12-05-2022 02:08 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope you go/have been to your appointment Kat. It's important you go and try to communicate how things are. I know it's hard though. I'm sorry you're feeling so awful.

How are you Beckie? When did the removal people come in the end?

My support worker phoned me just before 9am and I got up and sorted Crookshank's breakfast etc and had a shower. Hopefully I'll be able to get up at 9am every day she phones and the weekends. I hope to get into a routine and not need a phone call any more. I was awake though, it will be harder if I'm a bit sleepy.

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 02:11 PM

I'm ok thanks lindsay!
Removal people didn't come.
I messaged at around 9:30pm and he said he thought his admin person had messaged me changing the date to today because he'd been unwell. Slightly annoying but an easy miscommunication thing! So it's fine.

That's really good!
Just take it day by day :)

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 02:17 PM


So they're coming today? So annoying about yesterday though. What have you been up to today?

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 02:45 PM

It was a bit annoying but these things happen!

I've not been up to much.
Had a sainsburys delivery and just been to vape shop and now having a caramel latte. Tattoo in 15 mins!!! So excited!

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 03:20 PM

I hope you're going to post pics of your tattoo somewhere, I'm interested! Sounds like you've had a good day so far.

tamobhuuta 12-05-2022 03:20 PM

What tattoo are you getting?

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 03:22 PM

Hi Tamo, how are you getting on?

tamobhuuta 12-05-2022 03:36 PM

Well done for your activities :)

I am ok. Mum helped me throw a load of old clothes out.

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 03:41 PM

Does that give you more space for new clothes? :-D Well done, it can be a task. I've got some boxes to go through but can't find the motivation.

not_so_insig 12-05-2022 05:03 PM

Hello all.

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 05:07 PM

Hi Dawn, how is your day going?

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 05:12 PM

I looooovveee my new tattoo!!!
Gonna post a pic on fb soon

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 05:17 PM

I'm glad you're pleased :-D How many tattoos do you have?

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 05:27 PM

I have 10 tattoos!
And may or may not have booked another....not until July though! And it will be a full day session!

not_so_insig 12-05-2022 05:33 PM

I am ok apart thanks Lindsay. I had a stressful time but fortunately its been sorted thanks to my dad.

not_so_insig 13-05-2022 07:58 AM

First to post ! Beat Beckie lol.

Morning all.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:47 AM

Oh nooo!
How dare you! :tongue2:

Morning dawn
How are you?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2022 11:21 AM

Hi both. How are you?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 11:22 AM

I'm ok. Waiting for removal guy. And cpn to call. And amazon!

How are you?

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 11:55 AM

Morning (almost afternoon).

Are you addicted to tattoos Beckie?! Sounds like you've got a bit of waiting to do today. I hope you can occupy yourself while you wait. Plus I have to say it, another Amazon parcel! I can say that but I have one coming today too.

How are you today Dawn?

How's things Tamo?

I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 11:59 AM

Hey lindsay!
How are you?

Cpn called and removal guy has taken the stuff!
He was very nice.

Yes i am very addicted to tattoos!

Yep another amazon parcel! Lol
Are you getting anything exciting?

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:07 PM

I'm not sure how I am, low I guess but I did get up when my support worker phoned at 9am but no one is going to phone over the weekend so it might be harder but I don't want to have a lie in and break the routine.

Did it go ok with your CPN? I'm glad you've got two of your waiting things over. Do you have a time for your Amazon order?

My Amazon order is bottles with clips for putting hand sanitiser in. I have them on all my bags but I dropped my bag yesterday and the lid of the bottle cracked so I couldn't get it closed so need a replacement. What about your order?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 12:14 PM

Well done!
You should be proud of yourself :)

Yeah it went fine. We had a slight argument about carers but i pointed out it wasn't one of my CTO conditions. She eventually had to admit they can't force me to have them and to speak to them when they come to assess me. So i will tell them directly that i don't want them!
Amazon order should be coming between 11:15-1:15
Which is pretty early for this area!

Ah ok!
Nothing too exciting then!
I ordered 6 big cans of deodorant.
I like to stock up on things like that! Ends up being cheaper than buying them at the supermarket.
I've also got LOADS of face wipes, hand soap and toothpaste!
And toilet roll off Groupon! Which i need to order soon

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:24 PM

What do the carers do for you? Would you be safe without them?

Wow, you could create a bunker with all that stuff! I thought I was bad just getting things like if I just started a hand wash bottle I'd get another bottle to keep until the other one runs out. I don't leave things till I really need them. Where do you even store all your stuff?
