That's good. I am trying to get hold of my cpn. I have tried twice and nobody is answering the phone at my cmht so I give up.

one_step_closer 09-09-2022 03:03 PM

Hi everyone. I hope you're all having a good day.

not_so_insig 09-09-2022 03:11 PM

Thanks for asking. I am struggling tbh Lindsay.

one_step_closer 09-09-2022 03:20 PM

I'm sorry about that, Dawn. Are there things that will help?

tamobhuuta 09-09-2022 03:31 PM

Hugs if wanted insig. Did you hear back yet?

not_so_insig 09-09-2022 03:41 PM

I am doing stuff to distract Lindsay. Thankfully I have Internet so I can watch britbox.

not_so_insig 09-09-2022 03:42 PM

Thanks tamobhuuta. I havent tried again as my cmht is terrible for not answering their phone.

one_step_closer 09-09-2022 04:58 PM

Keep going Dawn, sounds like you're doing all you can. Will you try phoning your CPN again tomorrow if you need to?

Cacoethes 09-09-2022 06:04 PM

Had a wake/funeral thing of about 30-40 people in this afternoon. All to be served at the bar. One person bought 16 drinks and by the time he had ordered, (i was making them as he was ordering) he had finished his drink and ordered another! It was never ending!
Plus all the othet people. Non stop!
And for some reason everyone disappeared so N who was working the restaurant saw i was stressed and jumped on the bar with me. She also gave me a lift home!
Glad that's over!
Sorry, i ranted! Just stressed!

not_so_insig 09-09-2022 06:10 PM

Lindsay tomorrow's Saturday and my cmht isn't open on a Saturday. I will try Monday if things aren't any better.

Cacoethes 10-09-2022 08:44 AM

Morning everyone

Zurg 10-09-2022 09:23 AM

Morning Beckie. How are you today?

Cacoethes 10-09-2022 09:32 AM


I'm ok. Going to the cinema with Jasmine today!
We're going to see the league of superpets!
And then probably McDonald's.

How are you?

Zurg 10-09-2022 10:01 AM

Oooh, sounds like an awesome day!!! I hope the movie Will be fun and entertaining. I've always been a sucker for a good animation movie!!!

I'm okay. But for some reason i've just gone totally dead. Didn't see that coming. Feels like my blood sugar has run out. Just had something to eat so i hope i'll feel more normal soon-ish.

Cacoethes 10-09-2022 10:11 AM

Yep! I love animated movies!

Hopefully you'll feel better in a bit!
Low blood sugar can really mess with you.

There's a kid on the bus playing the same song by Ed Sheeran. Out loud. On repeat. Just waiting for the bus i had to listen to it 3 times. It hasn't stopped on the bus.
Thank goodness i have headphones!

tamobhuuta 10-09-2022 10:47 AM

That's a fun day Cacoethes :)

How are you now Zurg?

not_so_insig 10-09-2022 11:01 AM

Morning all.

Cacoethes 10-09-2022 11:07 AM

Yep! Will be a fun day!
Just waiting for my step dad to drop jasmine off now.
Not sure which car they'll be in.

How are you guys?

Zurg 10-09-2022 12:14 PM

I tried to nap but gave up after ten minutes as my bun-bun tried very insistently to destroy my flat.
I'm still tired. Eating didn't help much. I crave sugar-y cola!!! But have none. And i can't find any energy to walk to the shop atm. Fml!!!

tamobhuuta 10-09-2022 12:56 PM

Oh dear Zurg :(

Hi insig, how are you?

one_step_closer 10-09-2022 01:48 PM

Hi everyone.

Your day sounds lots of fun, Beckie. Enjoy!

I'm sorry you're not doing too great, Kat. Sounds like you're trying lots of things. If I could send you some sugary cola I would. Maybe you'll be feeling a bit better later and go and get some. What time is it with you?

Are you feeling any better today, Dawn. Keep doing the safe things that help.

How are you, Tamo?

not_so_insig 10-09-2022 03:40 PM

I am slightly better today thanks Lindsay. I have been to the retail park to treat my cat as there's an pets at home there. Also went to a shop called The Range and bought some art stuff. Then I walked to Sainsbury's and bought some stuff there. I was going to treat myself in the cafe but the bus was only in 5 minutes so decided to catch the bus instead. Some feral kids demanded to be put down in the middle of the road (the bus station was only 2 minutes away) and when the driver refused to they tried to open the doors by jumping up and pressing the buttons by the door. Fortunately the bus driver reacted quickly and shut the door before there was an accident. They were also playing their music out loud on their phones. They looked to be about 9 or 10.

Cacoethes 10-09-2022 05:17 PM

Hey guys! I'm back!
Me and Jasmine had a lovely time. The film was really good! Caught in a massive downpour though!
Then we got the bus back to mum's. Jasmine never goes on buses so it was very exciting for her! And she got to press the button too lol
And my brother was going to a town near here to see a friend so i got a lift all the way home!
Its been a good day!
Randomly found out that a brother is moving to Thailand in a few weeks though!

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 08:22 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 11-09-2022 09:55 AM

Morning, how are you? I'm glad you had a good time yesterday.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 09:56 AM

Struggling but I'll live!
Also cold!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 11-09-2022 09:59 AM

Sorry to hear that. Hugs if wanted. I am ok, feeling a bit down but it will pass.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 10:10 AM

Thank you

I hope you feel better soon!

I have just double checked and it turns out I'm not working next week! I have the next 3 weeks as holiday (so i still get paid) instead of only the last 2 weeks of September off. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself!

tamobhuuta 11-09-2022 10:57 AM

Ooo it's good you'll still get paid!

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 11:03 AM

I had tons of holiday days to use up before 1st October. I didn't want to just lose them so that's why i have so much time off!

one_step_closer 11-09-2022 02:47 PM

I'm sorry to hear you're not not doing so good, Beckie and Tamo, I hope it passes soon. I'm here if I can do anything.

I'm glad you had a good day yesterday, Beckie. I hope you can find things that will keep you occupied when you have your time off.

What have you both been up to today?

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 02:58 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

I'm sure I'll find something to do

All I've done is watch tv and go to asda!
I'm not bored though, like i usually am
I think I've got so much going on mentally that i can't be bored

How are you?
Got much planned for today?

I'm very cold!
Got my indoor hoodie on and my fluffy blanket!

not_so_insig 11-09-2022 03:50 PM

Hello all. I am wondering what to do with myself. No buses here on a Sunday.

In case people didn't know the Queen's funeral is on the 19th of September. It's a Bank holiday in case people were due a benefit payment. Or reliant on trains/buses.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 03:52 PM

Ah ****.
I've got to get a train into London on the 19th.
And the tube. :ermm:

not_so_insig 11-09-2022 04:10 PM

According to what I read that day they are saying to allow plenty of extra time on all routes to and from the capital on the trains on the 19th. So I would take an earlier train if you can Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 04:14 PM

Yeah i read that too.
Luckily i don't need to be there for a specific time.
I'm getting the eurostar the next morning so i hope things will be back to normal then!

not_so_insig 11-09-2022 04:25 PM

That's lucky Beckie

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 04:29 PM


I don't know about you guys but i think today has gone quite quickly!

not_so_insig 11-09-2022 04:46 PM

Yes it seems to be going quickly for me too Beckie. I thought it was only 3 pm.

one_step_closer 11-09-2022 04:48 PM

It might be because you've not been feeling bored, Beckie. My day has felt quick because I got up late.

one_step_closer 11-09-2022 04:48 PM

Did you find something to do, Dawn?

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 04:55 PM

That's probably it lindsay!

I'm feeling less cold though, finally!

one_step_closer 11-09-2022 05:00 PM

That's good. It is quite cold today but I'm ok with just my jumper on and a cat warming my lap.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 05:06 PM

It was really foggy outside this morning
Always a bit creepy
And makes it seem colder!

one_step_closer 11-09-2022 05:07 PM

Must be heading into autumn.

Cacoethes 11-09-2022 05:10 PM

I'm glad. Not a fan of the summer.

Cacoethes 12-09-2022 09:13 AM


tamobhuuta 12-09-2022 11:10 AM
