I'm having a debate with myself about whether or not I should wear a hat today. I never wear hats but it's so hot. I don't know if I suit hats, I have a light blue bucket hat with daisies on it. I've got the walking group today so will be out for a while.

nonperson 10-08-2022 01:13 PM

Wear a hat! When it's this hot it doesn't matter if you suit them or not.

I, however, stupidly left mine at home today... >.<

not_so_insig 10-08-2022 01:27 PM

I agree wear a hat. You can always take it off.

tamobhuuta 10-08-2022 01:52 PM

Wear the hat, it sounds cute and practical :)

tamobhuuta 10-08-2022 02:30 PM

My parcels arrived!

Cacoethes 10-08-2022 02:45 PM

Bucket hats are very in at the moment!

Work is very busy!
Its calmed down a bit now the lunch rush is over.
So hopefully when I'm off my break it will be ok!

I have a parcel coming today too i think.
Hopefully they'll leave it behind the bin or something.
It's evri so they should do

not_so_insig 10-08-2022 02:47 PM

Anything interesting? My cpn has yet to phone as she said that she was phoning at 2. But evri have come. Just waiting for amazon and yodel now.

tamobhuuta 10-08-2022 02:51 PM

I got stretchy shorts and 2 books.

not_so_insig 10-08-2022 03:12 PM

Hope you enjoy reading your books tamobhuuta.

My cpn phoned. She apologised as she was dealing with someone in crisis. Anyway I am going to depot clinic tomorrow at the cmht so she said that if it's ok then we will deal with my review of my care and treatment plan then (the whole reason for her phoning) as she's doing clinic.

The item I received today is not as described. I have contacted the seller and if they don't reply within the next few days then I am gonna have to file a claim on ebay. They were selling the exact same item but in poorer condition at the same time so they have sent me the wrong item.

nonperson 10-08-2022 03:31 PM

Easy mistake to make. Give them a chance to reply before you get all file-a-complainty.

not_so_insig 10-08-2022 03:38 PM

I am giving them a few days to reply nonperson. It says on their feedback that they're not great at communicating hence why I feel like I have to file.

one_step_closer 10-08-2022 04:39 PM

I hope your parcel suff gets easily sorted Dawn.

Lots of people getting parcels today!

I got a letter from a pen pal which will take me ages to reply to. I have another to reply to first.

How is everyone doing now?

Zurg 10-08-2022 05:10 PM

I am tired. Today is bad day for me. I lost one of my really good friends on this day 7 years ago. It probably seems a bit odd but not a day has passed since when i haven't thought of her…. I miss her every day.
I don't feel like our friendship died just because she did…. I am trying to keep it alive in this world and i hope she is in hers too, where ever she is.
I don't have a lot of words today.
I hope you're all okay <3

one_step_closer 10-08-2022 05:43 PM

*hugs Kat if ok* Friends are special and loss is painful. Take care of yourself.

not_so_insig 10-08-2022 06:41 PM

I have received all my parcels now. Fortunately my amazon and yodel parcels were as described.

Cacoethes 10-08-2022 06:52 PM

I'm sorry zurg
That must be really tough
Thinking of you <3

Pi.R^2 10-08-2022 11:32 PM

Late but sending you my thoughts Kat on a difficult day. It sounds like you’re doing a great job of keeping the friendship alive; that’s a lovely way to look at it.

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 08:38 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 11-08-2022 10:03 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 10:54 AM



tamobhuuta 11-08-2022 12:55 PM

I'm ok. Got up a whole FIFTEEN MINUTES early. Now I'm having lunch. Do you have any plans for today?

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 01:03 PM

That's good
What are you having for lunch?

I've been to asda and have taekwando and beatz later

one_step_closer 11-08-2022 01:29 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Are you any less tired, Beckie? Will the classes be good for you or do you think you need to take it easy?

Yay for fifteen minutes, Tamo! I hope you enjoyed your lunch.

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 01:33 PM

Hey lindsay

Nope i am still exhausted
The classes aren't until later so I'll probably be fine
It is very hot today though!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 11-08-2022 01:38 PM

Don't go to the classes if you're not fine at the time though or if you think they might make you feel worse, please.

It is way too hot. I'll be staying inside all day. I'm feeling anxious about things related to the hot weather.

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 01:51 PM

I wouldn't like to miss taekwando.
We'll be doing our first grading in 8(?) weeks so i need to practice.

Good plan.
I'm sorry you're feeling anxious

tamobhuuta 11-08-2022 02:40 PM

Sorry you're feeling anxious osc. Look after yourself.

I had toast with cheese on. Different from cheese on toast! It was ok. I was going to go shoe shopping with L but it's too hot.

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 02:42 PM

Yeah way too hot for shoe shopping

I changed my bedsheets and was sweating buckets!

one_step_closer 11-08-2022 04:27 PM

Changing bedding is hard enough without the heat.

Cacoethes 11-08-2022 04:39 PM

It's been way too long since i last changed them so i needed to do it.
And it means i get clean sheets for bed, clean pjs and shower tonight

Splendiferous_Me 12-08-2022 04:15 AM

I miss the chat feature. Been a members since I was about 16 years old. Am now 32 and at least 10 years free from self injury. I belief it is more like 13 years but I see how drastically our world has changed and miss connecting with those I once knew and hope they are still living, thriving, and doing well. Not sure who might be new but I wish you all the best and know that the best is yet to come. Hold on, as you heal life does get better and joy does arise!!

Cacoethes 12-08-2022 07:23 AM

Well done on being SI free for so long! That's awesome!

There are a couple of older members on this thread.
I first joined in about 2004 i think but under a different account.
Quite a few have left and have jobs and families and are generally doing pretty well!

Morning everyone

Zurg 12-08-2022 09:55 AM

Morning Beckie :-)

How are you today??
It sure is hot!!!! Hope it's cooler at your place!!

Cacoethes 12-08-2022 10:24 AM


Nope not cooler here!
Just walked to work and i am MELTING!!!

I'm okish.
Hoping it's not gonna be massively busy today because i don't think I'll cope! It probably will be though

Zurg 12-08-2022 10:45 AM

You poor thing!!! Having to walk anywhere in this heat would make me cry today!!
I'll cross my fingers for only a few nice and polite customers for you today!!! <3

I've dragged out my extra fan. Otherwise i Think i might die. Which would be weird and possibly cause drama so…. :/

tamobhuuta 12-08-2022 10:59 AM

I had to sleep downstairs last night, my room was too hot. I don't know if I can bear shoe shopping!

not_so_insig 12-08-2022 01:32 PM

I am here! I am an older member been here since 2003. Had to change my username in 2004 due to stalker reasons.

I am boiling. Waiting for a phone call from my cpn today.

one_step_closer 12-08-2022 01:53 PM

I'm also not happy about the heat. I really need to cut back some bushes in my front garden because some branches are going through the fence and could hit people on the pavement but it's too hot to be out.

I hope everyone can find ways to cool down.

We don't want you dying, Kat so you stick with your extra fan!

I hope work goes well, Beckie.

Have you been shoe shopping, Tamo?

I hope your phone call with your CPN goes well, Dawn.

Cacoethes 12-08-2022 02:48 PM

Work is unfortunately very busy!
But I'm on my break now.
I had a chicken burger with cheese added
My glow beatz instructor is here with a few people from her Friday morning class (not glow beatz but they do go to glow beatz)
She came over to say hi and we had a chat and i gave her my staff discount.
So that was nice.

one_step_closer 12-08-2022 04:34 PM

When do you finish work/have you finished? You'll need to take it easy when you get home. That was nice of you letting them use your staff discount.

Cacoethes 12-08-2022 05:20 PM

I have finished!
Having a quick frozen daiquiri and then hopefully bus to asda (if it turns up....)

tamobhuuta 12-08-2022 07:00 PM

No, no shopping.

Cacoethes 12-08-2022 07:39 PM

Don't blame you tamo!

Thankfully the bus turned up today!

not_so_insig 12-08-2022 08:47 PM

My cpn didn't call in the end. Hopefully she'll call Monday.

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 07:25 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 13-08-2022 10:39 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 13-08-2022 12:18 PM

Not great.
I really want to go home


tamobhuuta 13-08-2022 01:39 PM

Are you at work?

one_step_closer 13-08-2022 02:17 PM

I'm sorry you're not feeling great, Beckie. Are you spending time with Jasmine?

How are you, Tamo?

Been quiet in here so far today.

tamobhuuta 13-08-2022 03:34 PM

Where are you osc? I am so out of touch!

I'm in the garden with some family.
