I need to go food shopping... *whine*

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 06:45 PM

Yes, but this one bus goes once an hour and I believe i was on the last bus of the day XD

Thankfully all was well and it was the same route as before so i didn't need to panic! Damn anxiety brain!
I'm now home and catching up with taskmaster.

Thanks guys!

Oh nooooo not food shopping! D:

nonperson 15-10-2022 06:55 PM

Glad you got back ok!

I haven't watched any of the new Taskmaster.

And ikr D=

Feels like I haven't whined about food shopping for ages.

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 07:10 PM

I've only watched the first episode but it's a good crew this season! Laughed out loud quite a few times!

You haven't!
Totally legit thing to complain about though. Food shopping sucks!

nonperson 15-10-2022 08:09 PM

I can't remember who's in it but I know I did know some of them at least.

It does suck. But it's done. And time to watch Strictly.

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 08:25 PM

The only ones i really know are Sarah Millican and dara o briain.
They're all really funny though!

Well done!

nonperson 15-10-2022 08:58 PM

Ah yeah. I kinda like Sarah Millican, from the very little I have seen of her. She seems really quirky =)

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 09:07 PM

Yeah she is! She doesn't take herself too seriously.

Pi.R^2 16-10-2022 12:02 AM

What? Dara is on strictly? I saw him on tour the other week and he made reference to not being on strictly?!
Also hi!

nonperson 16-10-2022 12:20 AM

Noo, he's on the new Taskmaster!

nonperson 16-10-2022 12:21 AM

But he did do a small piece on Strictly tonight doing all the voting info and terms and conditions and such. He had a live audience behind him! Maybe you were in it =o

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 07:28 AM

Can you imagine Dara on strictly though XD

Morning everyone!

nonperson 16-10-2022 10:35 AM

I think he'd be surprisingly good at dancing =P

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 10:40 AM

Probably!
He is good at a lot of things!

one_step_closer 16-10-2022 02:14 PM

I know some of these names but can't picture the people.

How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 02:25 PM

I am waiting for my heart scan.
Hoping they won't be too late because it's a long journey back! Appointment is/was 2:20

one_step_closer 16-10-2022 02:28 PM

I'll have my brain fingers crossed for you. Hope it all goes well (the appointment and the journey home). Do you have anything else you need to do today or will you have some time to wind down when you eventually get home?

tamobhuuta 16-10-2022 02:55 PM

I hope the scan goes OK Cacoethes.
How are you osc?

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 02:59 PM

Thanks guys!
All done now and waiting for bus to town, where i will get another (long) bus and then train.....
The bus to the train station only goes every hour so fingers crossed i will catch one and not have to wait for ages!

tamobhuuta 16-10-2022 03:00 PM

My fingers are crossed for you!

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 03:06 PM

Thank you!
Had a quick look on google maps and i should be ok!

How are you guys anyway?

Hi ... I've also been putting that off and my partner has done that for the last 2 weeks and I can only get to the store to get basics like TP and PT and soap.

I quite enjoyed this one this morning.

Wishing you well with your scan.



Hope everyone is doing alright.



Hanging in there; I guess. :indifferent:

one_step_closer 16-10-2022 04:56 PM

How is your travelling going, Beckie?

Hi Maii, keep holding on and ask for help if you need it.

Cacoethes 16-10-2022 05:09 PM

I am home!
All buses and trains were exactly on time, didn't have to rush for anything, was right in the right place at the right time for everything today! It's actually kind of spooky! Literally everything just aligned! So weird

not_so_insig 17-10-2022 07:07 AM

Glad you're home Beckie.

Morning all.

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 08:12 AM

Thanks Dawn!

Morning!
How are you?

not_so_insig 17-10-2022 11:02 AM

I am ok. I had a **** ton of post today including a book that came all the way from Australia. Unfortunately one of the items triggered off the voices :-(

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 11:09 AM

Ah that sucks.
Hope you can look after yourself today

not_so_insig 17-10-2022 11:46 AM

Thanks Beckie.

tamobhuuta 17-10-2022 12:29 PM

Hi guys

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 02:18 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope the voices settle, Dawn, and you can cope ok. Look after yourself.

How are you Beckie and Tamo?

tamobhuuta 17-10-2022 02:32 PM

I'm not great, I got caught doing x so I'm shut out my room for a bit.

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 02:47 PM

Sorry to hear that, Tamo. Do you have things to occupy yourself with?

tamobhuuta 17-10-2022 02:51 PM

I've got my phone, a book and my teddy. And my headphones so I can listen to music.

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 02:53 PM

That's good you've got some things at least. What sort of music do you listen to?

tamobhuuta 17-10-2022 03:18 PM

I've been listening to Christian pop on the radio.

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 03:45 PM

Hey everyone.
I've not had a great day.
Was on the bar with new manager. Who i do not like. No one does. She's just rude and picks at things. Especially with me it seems.
I asked other manager if an opportunity to leave early arises, can i leave early. She said yes. So i got to leave at 3.

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 05:04 PM

That's a shame there has to be one person at your work that spoils the good vibes, Beckie. I'm glad you still have lots of good colleagues though. What are you doing now?

Are P.O.D still around, Tamo?

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 05:08 PM

Yeah. No one likes her apparently. Though she is nicer to other people it seems. Idk.
The rest of my colleagues are awesome though.

I've been attempting to cook myself lunch/dinner but have now burnt both separate attempts. So I'll try again later.
Watching house and just filled the hot water bottle.

What are you up to?

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 05:15 PM

I hope you don't have to work with her much.

You should set a timer on your phone for when your food will be ready. That's what I do.

Does a hot water bottle keep you warm enough?

I'm just on here for a bit then need to feed Crookshanks and will try a bit of reading. Will watch some TV later on. It's the American version of The Office I'm watching, didn't know there was a UK one. I think the American one is meant to be the best one.

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 05:19 PM

I used to set timers. I don't know why i choose not to now tbh

Yeah the hot water bottle works really well

The American one is definitely better

one_step_closer 17-10-2022 05:21 PM

I think it would be a good plan to start using timers again!

Have you got a blanket too?

Cacoethes 17-10-2022 05:25 PM

Probably!

Yes i do! A lovely fluffy one

Ahh, I see! He said in his show that he now walks with a stick sometimes due to an old knee injury and was disappointed because the only behaviour management tool he had available to use on his teenage daughter was threatening to go on Strictly (which she'd find hugely embarrassing) and now he can't use that any more :P

Thank you - I'll be sure to reach out.



I hope you and everyone are managing ok. :ermm:

Cacoethes 18-10-2022 07:27 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 18-10-2022 10:16 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you?
