Ooh exciting!
What's it like?

Have a load of stickies disappeared from GC?

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 09:38 AM

They have, I blame Jenna.

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 09:42 AM

I DON'T LIKE CHANGE!!!!

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 09:42 AM

BLAME JENNA!!

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 09:55 AM

Oh I do! :tongue2:

One of the staff asked me what my plans are for today...idk. might walk down the corridor a couple of times, lie down for a bit. You know, all the exciting stuff you can do in a psych ward with no leave.

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 09:56 AM

WILD!


I'm currently stuck in my room while the carpet people are here, so I'm on hold with the energy company and also finding my bedroom floor (aka what normal people call "tidying")

long road 13-04-2023 09:58 AM

There is a thread where you can find links to all the deleted stickies in forum and community questions.

Morning all!
I am awake early for me after a lot of really weird dreams. Not bad just weird.

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 10:02 AM

Morning guys. I've been really brave and invited a friend round for coffee! Hopefully he won't want to stay too long...

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 10:04 AM

Ikr!
I also need to hassle staff about a sick note.

Good luck with the tidying!

I don't want to read the stickies. I just want them there XD

At least they weren't bad. I've been having dreams recently where some things make complete sense but the rest of it is very random.

Hey tamo. Hope you have a nice time!

long road 13-04-2023 10:12 AM

I hear you. Change is a weird thing.

It was very weird dream highlights include having to evacuate a building because of a thunderstorm because clearly outside is safer and having to save the world by winning a children's game about soup (that doesn't exist irl) at my old primary school.

*Cheerleads Ahimsa tidying* You can do it!

Hope your coffee goes well Tamo,.well done for being brave enough to invite your friend round.

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 10:16 AM

Well done Tamo!!!

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 10:16 AM

That is very random!

Mine included the gym reception staff sneaking us out because of an evil turtle that wanted children to make some stuff for them? Can't remember what.

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 10:21 AM

I had super weird dreams last night too!

My necklace has arrived! And I got sorted with the energy company :)

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 10:26 AM

Yay! Well done!

long road 13-04-2023 10:31 AM

Oh no not the evil turtle!

Well done for successfully battling the energy company.

And yay for necklace!

I am off to get breakfast.

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 10:42 AM



NECKLAAAAACE

*where is my image???*

I put it in image tags and everything. It's this though https://ibb.co/vYbF3mB

Cacoethes 13-04-2023 10:44 AM

Yes the evil turtle!
He had like a monocle and everything.

What's for breakfast??

I never know how to put images here

not_so_insig 13-04-2023 10:50 AM

You need to select bb code full Beth otherwise it don't work. Then it's a question of pasting it.

Oooh that's lovely!

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 11:04 AM

Love it!

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 11:05 AM

My friend can't come.

long road 13-04-2023 11:05 AM

Of course the evil turtle had a monocle!

I had 2 crumpets with almond butter and a glass of apple juice for breakfast.

That is a beautiful necklace Ahimsa.

Morning Dawn!

long road 13-04-2023 11:06 AM

Sad times your friend can't come Tamo :(

Pi.R^2 13-04-2023 11:39 AM

My ears are burning :plain:

Don't forget your sunscreen Jenna! :cool:

I am having coffee outside in my garden in the sunshine. It is rather enjoyable.

EDIT: It started raining so I have retreated inside. Silly April Showers!

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 12:13 PM

I'm looking forward to a summer like last year, a big glass of squash and a good book in the garden.

I am so pleased. My sister was charged with assaulting a police officer back in the new year but now the charges have been dropped! Such a relief!

long road 13-04-2023 12:23 PM

Got to love a book in the garden. We have a gazebo up in the summer so we get some shade (garden is south east facing so gets full force sun until around 2pm) . We even play board games out there sometimes on our folding garden table. It's so nice to get outside. I try to get out everyday because my physio and OT have said the natural light should help with my sleep cycle.

That's great news, I bet it's a weight off your shoulders.

one_step_closer 13-04-2023 12:43 PM

So many posts! I have read them all but don't have it in my brain to reply to everyone.

That's a lovely necklace, Ahimsa.

I can't really sit in my garden because my neighbours are always in theirs and they talk to me for ages which is annoying.

I hope your days are going well and continue.

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 12:50 PM

Such a weight!

I hope the daylight does help. Something to look forward to :)

Pi.R^2 13-04-2023 01:06 PM

Love the necklace Beth!!

I hate the outdoors :P If outdoors was an ideal place to be, we wouldn't have invented indoors.

So pleased to hear that the charges have been dropped tamo :)

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 01:13 PM

Gargh, annoying neighbours.

long road 13-04-2023 01:38 PM

I spent 3 weeks each summer camping as a teenager and many weekends hiking. Very fond of the outdoors. However I agree when it rains it is generally better to be indoors. Ditto when the pollen is high.

How is your day going one step closer?

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 02:32 PM

Update: we've had hail.

one_step_closer 13-04-2023 02:49 PM

I hate hay fever season!

Was it heavy hail, Tamo? Hope you were inside.

It's just dull here, was sunny earlier.

I'm not sure how my day is going, Jen. But thanks for asking. How are you getting on?

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 02:53 PM

My support person was helpful!

tamobhuuta 13-04-2023 03:13 PM

Quite heavy yes, I was indoors so no matter. I hope your day gets better osc.

I'm glad your support person was helpful Ahimsa.

one_step_closer 13-04-2023 04:47 PM

I'm glad your support person was helpful, Ahimsa. How are you feeling?

I've not seen hail here for ages.

I was just settling down for a nap when you replied! I definitely needed the nap. Been slowly waking up for the last hour, half watching you tube on the sofa

I tried listening some meotera earlier but I decided I wanted something gentler on my ears after a couple of songs.

The biggest hail I ever saw was in Italy it was the size of golf balls and hurt when it hit you. And the cover of the book in my rucksack was pulverised by it!

one_step_closer 13-04-2023 06:34 PM

That sounds perfect, looking after yourself by having a nap and slowly waking up doing small things. What do you watch on Youtube?

All hailstones are painful but I can't imagine what golf ball sized ones would be like!

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 07:00 PM

I need to dye my hair, I've been at the hairdresser today and she's bleached my roots and cut it for me. Currently searching google and TikTok for inspiration!

I watch all sorts of bits on YouTube mainly music, travel and history related content. With some outdoors/backwoods kind of stuff. I watched a video of a man stealth camping in a castle today. And some live music sets.

Go rainbow coloured!!!!

I wish I could dye my hair, my natural colour is nearly black and as such I would have to belach my hair so much I would fry it before I could get colour to take.

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 09:23 PM

I always go some version of pinks and purples. If I'm actively avoiding my purple, I'm not doing good!

long road 13-04-2023 09:29 PM

Purple is Avery good colour. Made any decision yet?

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 09:32 PM

Nope, we're two hours into procrastinating

Ahimsa 13-04-2023 10:32 PM

The dye is on, I've gone purple on the bottom half and pink on the top

long road 13-04-2023 10:46 PM

That sounds rather exciting! Hope it comes out well !

Cacoethes 14-04-2023 08:53 AM

Morning people!

long road 14-04-2023 09:43 AM

Morning! I woke up an hour before my alarm after not sleeping until 3:30am... On the one hand this is kind of good as my body clock might be resetting. On the other 6 hours doesn't feel like enough sleep but I am now both tired and wide awake!

Did your washing dry out the rest of the way in your room the other night?
