It definitely would! But yeah, not the best of ideas! XD

Yeah for sure!
I really hope they do find something that makes people feel a little better while actually getting better! My nanny had chemo and she said it was absolutely dreadful!

Thank you! Have a nice nap!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 04:06 PM

Hey everyone, read everything but not up to replying individually right now.

That's me just getting online, I was up a bit later and had no time to internet apart from quickly on Fb before I had to go to the gym group. Don't like this mess of my schedule!

I hope you all have a good rest of the day.

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 04:07 PM

Hi osc, good to see you :)

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 04:14 PM

How are you getting on, Tamo?

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 04:19 PM

Does anyone know of a good moisturiser with some SPF for sensitive skin? I've got a not dangerous slight browny patch on my forehead which the pharmacist says mostly women get as they age and just to use a daily moisturiser with SPF.

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 04:43 PM

Not a clue, sorry!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 05:22 PM

Lol, somehow your honesty made me laugh!

I'll maybe try and go to look for some and to a charity shop that I spied today that has some new books in it later on in the week.

How's your day going, Beckie?

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 05:30 PM

Would the pharmacist be able to recommend one?

Not bad. Not done a great deal! But still shattered as usual!

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 05:47 PM

I'm doing ok thanks. I printed out a picture of Mt Carmel to put on my wall because my prayer group is the Secular Carmelites.

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:08 PM

I wasn't paying much attention but she did say something about Boots. I just had a Google and there's loads of them.

You have been doing quite a bit today! Are you taking it easy for the rest of today?

Will the picture help you feel positive when you look at it, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 06:15 PM

I hope so :)

What are you up to?

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:19 PM

I hope it does.

I'm just sitting with Crookshanks on my lap not really knowing what to do. I'm tired. Not TV time till 7pm.

What are you getting up to?

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 06:24 PM

I'm watching doctor who. The alien's really cute! Do you not have anything scheduled?

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 06:24 PM

Only done 2 things!
Glow beatz soon

You can't do anything with a cat on your lap anyway!

Which alien tamo?

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:30 PM

A cute alien?!

I feel a bit too tired to read right now. Just jumping about online until 7.

I pretty much always have a cat on my lap and I just go online or read. Although not all day! I apologise and stand up sometimes.

Will you be ok to go to Glow Beatz?

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 06:32 PM

It's called the Pting, it's quite like Stitch.

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 06:33 PM

Always am lindsay!

Aww i loved the Pting!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:34 PM

I just Googled it and I have to disagree with you, it looks freaky not cute! Although it might be different when it's moving and doing things.

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:34 PM

I hope you enjoy yourself then, Beckie. Don't be working too hard.

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 06:39 PM

I knew I recognised that actor! It's Doc Brown. And his sister is scarey nurse from Casualty.

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 06:41 PM

I'll be fine! :)

Yep it is!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:42 PM

I may have to start watching Doctor Who. We seem to talk about it daily here.

long road 06-06-2023 06:43 PM

I napped. Accidentally napped too long though, about 3 and a half hours, but I haven't really been sleeping lately so I guess needed it. Lucky I managed to nap really.

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:45 PM

Do you feel any better for it, Jen?

Cacoethes 06-06-2023 06:49 PM

Sounds like you needed it jen!

I would recommend doctor who lindsay!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 06:50 PM

I don't think I'm too keen on that recommendation :tongue2: Sounds like a huge commitment.

long road 06-06-2023 06:55 PM

I am not sure if I feel better yet. Feeling rather groggy to be honest. Hoping dinner will help we are having pizza and salad. But I haven't decided what to put on my pizza yet.

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 06:58 PM

I too recommend doctor who.

nonperson 06-06-2023 07:02 PM

Me too! The Pting is cute I suppose, until you see the destruction it can cause.

long road 06-06-2023 07:03 PM

Me three. Love doctor who.

StepSoftlyGhost 06-06-2023 07:40 PM

Just awoke from a power nap myself too! I think I needed that.

Good evening all. I hope you're all ok. <3

nonperson 06-06-2023 07:41 PM

Hello! Welcome to the thread =)

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 07:49 PM

Hi. Your name is Ghost!

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 07:53 PM

I am being ambushed by Doctor Who fans!

Hi StepSoftlyGhost, welcome to the thread. Hope your nap was helpful.

Jen, that is a tough decision. I too had pizza, just a shop one, it was meat feast.

Hi NP, how are you doing?

Are you still watching Doctor Who, Tamo?

Thank you. :-)

If there's ever been a time when I needed a distraction, it's about now.

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 08:00 PM

Is there a name you'd like us to call you StepSoftlyGhost? I'm Lindsay.

If this thread is quiet and you still need a distraction, have you tried the fun and distractions board?

long road 06-06-2023 08:02 PM

Welcome to the thread Ghost!

What is your favourite TV programme?

I had ham, mushroom and red onion on my pizza (with cheese ofc). Might have some strawberries and yoghurt for dessert.

My brain is so fuzzy I am considering heading straight back to bed.

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 08:06 PM

Onion always wins in my opinion. You need to have proper strawberries and cream or ice cream if you have any. I don't think I've ever had strawberries with yoghurt. I hope you do have some and enjoy it. Sorry your brain is feeling fuzzy. Would you feel a bit better in bed?

Also, I'm sure I have asked this before but it's important.

How do people pronounce yoghurt? YAWgurt or Yo!gurt?

I'm a YAWgurt person.

It is indeed! I've gone by this name for quite a few years now. To be honest I can't remember why...

My name's David. But I'll be happy being called whatever you're all comfortable with! It's nice to meet you all. Apologies for crashing in here and just spinning the contents of my head everywhere! It's a bit of a dark whirlwind of sorts right now.

Yes, thank you, I've had a peek through. It's actually bedtime for my son, so I'm sure I'll be distracted enough now as it goes! :-D

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 08:08 PM

Yep, still watching, but bedtime soon.

Pi.R^2 06-06-2023 08:10 PM

What??? Like, I don’t get the two options! I demand that you send me a recording of you and explaining the options!

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 08:10 PM

I don't have the memory for people's actual names so I'm afraid you're just going to be Ghost to me. Hi!

Pi.R^2 06-06-2023 08:11 PM

Oh lots of ninjas! Hi David! Welcome aboard :)

one_step_closer 06-06-2023 08:11 PM

Ghost/David, it's more about what YOU are most comfortable being called.

Is your son a horror to get to bed or nice and easy?

You're welcome in this thread, don't worry.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening Tamo and sleep well.

tamobhuuta 06-06-2023 08:11 PM

Osc I pronounce it like 'pot'

Not sure if you recognise it from my avatar, but Twin Peaks is my favourite programme by a country mile. I can talk about it for hours though, so be careful! :-p

I hope your head settles soon. I've just had a nap but I think it's made the fog even denser. I need to cook after putting my kid to bed, so I hope it stops spinning before that. Could be a bit of a mess! I hope you manage some decent rest.

Pff, that's what this place is for!


I just had ultimate comfort food pasta bake for dinner and am now settling down for some Star Trek time.

No I will not. :tongue2: It doesn't seem confusing to me.

Although I'm not understanding your pronunciation, Tamo.

nonperson 06-06-2023 08:13 PM

Oh also, it's yog-urt o.O

long road 06-06-2023 08:14 PM

I remember now that onion is your favourite vegetable Lindsay. I have ice cream but I really like yoghurt and fruit and don't feel in mood for ice cream.

If I got to bed I will probably just try and sleep more. But need to wait until at least 9 as that is when I need to take my meds.

I think I am a yog-urt person.
