I'm a bit stressed out but ok. My brother and sister came to see me which was a lovely surprise.

not_so_insig 02-11-2022 02:23 PM

Sorry that you're stressed tamobhuuta. Hope you enjoyed your visit.

I have got my cats medicine now comes the hard part of giving it to her. She probably won't talk to me for a while afterwards.

not_so_insig 02-11-2022 02:51 PM

The weather is awful here right now. Very wet and windy. I am not going outside today if I can help it.

tamobhuuta 02-11-2022 02:54 PM

Same weather here.

one_step_closer 02-11-2022 02:57 PM

Hi everyone.

Do you wrap the antibiotic in something like the pill pocket meal things, Dawn? Crookshanks takes his meds no bother if I use that. I hope your cat is better soon. The weather here is wet and windy too, there's a weather warning. Hoping my bin won't tip over when I put it out. It's the general waste bin though so it's heavier than the others.

I hope work is going well, Beckie.

I'm sorry you're stressed, Tamo. I hope you can work through it safely. I'm glad you had a nice surprise visit :-)

not_so_insig 02-11-2022 04:07 PM

She doesn't like them Lindsay plus her eating is a bit dodgy lately so probably wouldn't eat them anyway.

one_step_closer 02-11-2022 05:59 PM

Are you managing to give her them just as they are then?

not_so_insig 02-11-2022 06:05 PM

She's had only one dose so far but I managed it ok.

tamobhuuta 02-11-2022 06:05 PM

How has your day been osc?

one_step_closer 02-11-2022 06:14 PM

How many doses will she need, Dawn? I hope she continues to take them.

I don't really have words to describe how my day has been.

How has your day been, Tamo?

not_so_insig 02-11-2022 06:21 PM

She has a tablet twice a day for the next 5 days Lindsay.

My electricity keeps on going off for a second. Enough to knock my tv box off which is making it impossible to watch TV.

Cacoethes 02-11-2022 07:46 PM

Hey guys!
Just home.
Very wet and windy walk home! And dark!

tamobhuuta 02-11-2022 08:09 PM

Mostly quiet, just one short incident.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 08:11 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 03-11-2022 09:57 AM

Morning Beckie :)
How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-11-2022 10:38 AM

Morning guys, how are you?

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 12:09 PM


I'm ok thanks!
Been out this morning and now decided to binge watch doctor who for the rest of the day!
Its been raining all morning!

How are you guys?

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 12:12 PM

Classic or new?

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 12:42 PM

I do like classic who as well though.
Even though the daleks are more hilarious than scary in the orginal lol!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 01:14 PM

One of the reasons why I got britbox was because of classic Doctor Who. Oh and Hyacinth even though I have several dvds.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 01:19 PM

I find most old shows quite boring so britbox isn't for me!
It's good you enjoy it though!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 02:53 PM

Yes even though I have access to all the paid for streaming services (except for discovery plus and paramount) I tend to watch britbox the most.

tamobhuuta 03-11-2022 03:15 PM

I'm tempted to subscribe to britbox just for A Bit of Fry and Laurie.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 03:23 PM

Love a bit of fry and laurie!

I was thinking about getting paramount + for a bit just so i can binge watch nurse jackie!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 03:27 PM

I dont know if the offer is still on but walkers were doing a free trial of paramount with purchase of their crisps.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 03:29 PM

Oooh I'll have to have a look!

one_step_closer 03-11-2022 03:31 PM

You mentioned Nurse Jackie! *cries* That ending!!!

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 03:41 PM

I knoooow!!!
Heart breaking!

one_step_closer 03-11-2022 03:46 PM

Nurse Jackie is such a good show. I wouldn't watch it again though. I can usually only watch things once and move on to something else. I know you watch things you've already seen.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 03:59 PM

It is a good show!
Yeah i do watch things again. Apparently it's quite common for people with anxiety to re watch things!
I don't have anxiety but still interesting!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 04:06 PM

I rewatch tv programmes. If I really like it I get it on dvd if it's available.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 04:29 PM

I don't have anything capable of playing dvds!

Zurg 03-11-2022 04:32 PM

I never get tired of watching Inspector Morse, Midsomer Murders, Poirot and everything like that :D

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 04:40 PM

I find midsomer murders hilarious.
Honestly don't know why people continue to live there with people being murdered on such a regular basis! However, i have lived in small villages that were very 'hot fuzz'

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 05:13 PM

I have lots of retro tech in my flat. Dvd players, personal cassette player, personal cd players and a record player. Oh and a vhs cassette tape player plus an ipod classic.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 05:18 PM

I think having all that would annoy me!
I dislike having lots of things!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 05:22 PM

Tbf one of the dvd players is attached to the telly. The other is a portable one. I got it when I thought I was going IP because the signal is ***** in my local ip unit and there was no WiFi at the time.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 05:23 PM

Ah fair enough!
My local hospital has wifi. It does cut out a lot which is annoying but you just have to disconnect and reconnect. So not horrific!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 05:27 PM

Mine has it now though. Fortunately I havent been IP since its installed. I have used it though because my cmht is based in the local hospital.

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 05:29 PM

Ah ok!
All NHS buildings here use the same wifi so mine usually just automatically connects when i go to any NHS building!

one_step_closer 03-11-2022 06:02 PM

Hospital wifi can be annoying but also a saviour.

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 06:11 PM

Especially these days *nods*

one_step_closer 03-11-2022 06:22 PM

What are you doing this evening, Dawn?

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 06:25 PM

Definitely a saviour!
In the US, they can't have ANY electronics in their psych hospitals! Sometimes they can't even wear their own clothes!

one_step_closer 03-11-2022 06:26 PM

I would crack up further if that happened here!

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 06:37 PM

I'd go crazy if i didn't have my phone or ipad!

Zurg 03-11-2022 06:45 PM

But how the hell do you plan a great escape or a take over of the world if they won't even let you have a phone???!!? Surely, that is a major breach of your human Rights???!!

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 06:59 PM

Idk how they get away with it tbh
Must be SO boring!

Taekwando time!

Zurg 03-11-2022 07:28 PM

Yeah. In Denmark they let you keep your phone. And most of your stuff that you bring along. Except for nail clippers. Apparently they count as a lethal weapon. Inspiration can come from even the most unexpected places…. *evil laughter*

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 08:20 PM

People can be very creative in hospital!

I'm doing my next taekwando grading next Thursday!!!
