Beans and cheese wrap sounds messy.

long road 25-10-2023 02:35 PM

I eat it with a knife and fork Tamo! By hand would have a high risk of being messy!

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 02:41 PM

Beans and cheese wrap sounds amazing!

I am back and very tired

long road 25-10-2023 02:50 PM

Perhaps you should follow your own orders and get plenty of rest then Beckie :p

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 02:57 PM

No worries there! I haven't got the energy to move XD
I'm going to L's later, she suggested i come home first to chill and have some quiet time, which is much needed.

long road 25-10-2023 03:04 PM

Well resting by default is something XD

Aww L is awesome. She sound alike she really gets what you need and cares. So happy you found each other!

I am considering lying down again. But not sure.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 03:09 PM

It is! I am now horizontal on the sofa!

She is awesome :)
Thank you!

Go with the vibes

long road 25-10-2023 03:20 PM

My fancy tea just arrived!!! I have a strawberry lemonade flavour fruit tea, a mulled cider flavour fruit tea and some sticky chai to make proper chai with milk.

Think I am going to lie down but not necessarily nap.

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 03:22 PM

Ooo fancy tea.

I hope you're resting Cacoethes.

I went to an activity! I made a card for my sister.

long road 25-10-2023 03:48 PM

Good work Tamo! What kind of card did you make / what design?

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 04:01 PM

It was just a silly card with googley eyes and other decorations saying I missed her. I was rather liberal with the glue and it's still drying.

one_step_closer 25-10-2023 04:16 PM

Tamo you always seem to be having mushroom soup! Do they have it on a regular day? I love cards, bet your sister will love it.

I hope you have a nice relaxed time with L, Beckie. You very much deserve it.

How are all of your animals, Kat? Especially birdy who had a sore leg or something? Sorry I can't fully remember.

Fancy tea sounds fun but probably yuck to me! Hope you get lots of enjoyment from all your teas, Jen. Although how will you decide which one to have?

not_so_insig 25-10-2023 04:50 PM

I have been asleep. Managed to wash my hair and dry it. Also attempted to tidy up but got out of breath before completing it. My flat is a mess.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 05:28 PM

I had a nap 0_o

Well that's unusual. I know you were tired but do you think you might be unwell?

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 06:09 PM

I am unsure
I only really nap when unwell so it's a possibility
But i have done 2 evening/night shifts in a row, which is also a potential reason

long road 25-10-2023 06:10 PM

Think I will have strawberry lemonade tea first. It's the one I have tried before so I know I like it. And the one I bought the most of. Chai is most effort to make so will probably have that last.

Well let L take care of you this evening!

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 06:18 PM

Sounds tasty!

Yeah i will
We're just gonna watch a film

long road 25-10-2023 06:27 PM

I am going to have a cup now. For dinner we are having pizza. Tonight I am having ham, pineapple, mushroom and red onion on it.

Sounds like the kind of night you need. Enjoy!

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 07:13 PM

Ooh yum!

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 08:22 PM

I do have mushroom soup a lot!

Did the nap help Cacoethes?

Yummy pizza lr.

long road 25-10-2023 09:14 PM

Pizza was good.

not_so_insig 26-10-2023 06:13 AM

Morning all. Looks like I am the first here :laugh:

nonperson 26-10-2023 06:38 AM

Morning guys. How's everyone?

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 07:58 AM


I'm ok thanks. Bit groggy

How are you?

long road 26-10-2023 08:44 AM


I think I feel a bit better this morning. But not been up long so time will tell.

Hope coffee helps your grogginess Beckie

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 08:53 AM

Hopefully you'll continue to feel a bit better!

It is helping :)

nonperson 26-10-2023 09:18 AM

It's my turn for an appointment today. In the waiting room for a diabetic eye screening. It's going to sting and make my eyes blurry for hours D=

Hope the grogginess wears off Beckie and you continue to feel better Jen.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 09:29 AM

Oh noo!
Hate eye appointments
Hopefully it's not too bad

Grogginess is wearing off but still feel blah

long road 26-10-2023 09:32 AM

Feeling a bit more blargh now I have got up.

Need to do breakfast and coffee and meds etc. but currently hiding under a blanket on the sofa instead.

That eye screening sounds most unpleasant NP may the stinging and blurriness wear off as quickly as possible

nonperson 26-10-2023 09:33 AM

I hate eye stuff. Not had one before so am freaking out a bit. Plus I can't just drive away afterwards so I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to get home yet.

Got any plans for today?

nonperson 26-10-2023 09:34 AM

Ninja Jen. Breakfast will help!

long road 26-10-2023 09:40 AM

Probably will but my head hurts and it seems a lot of wffort. I do have fruit loaf though..

Right fruit loaf and coffee breakfast of champions her I come

nonperson 26-10-2023 09:46 AM

Go get that breakfast! It will be worth the effort.

Drops are in. Not too stingy. I've got to wait 15 minutes now.

My eyeballs feel odd... D=

tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 09:46 AM

Morning guys.

I hope your eye appointment is OK np.

nonperson 26-10-2023 09:47 AM

Thanks tamo. How're you today?

long road 26-10-2023 09:56 AM

I have fruit toast and coffee. I also have a killer headache. But that was there before breakfast.

If it's the dilating drops I have had them b fore NP. Bit trippy but not too bad

nonperson 26-10-2023 10:01 AM

Ach hope the headache clears =(

Yeah they are. They're not currently as weird as the ones that numb your eyeballs though.

tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 10:13 AM

I'm ok. Trying to organise using my leave - for the first time!

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 10:39 AM

Fruit loaf!!!

I had to have a full eye checkup when they thought i had a stroke/aneurysm
Was there for hours. Was awful!

Hope you get to go out tamo!

long road 26-10-2023 10:53 AM

Headache probably won't go away today (have had it since I hit my head on Saturday) but I have taken my prescription painkillers now so it should calm down. It is less bad then when I first hit my head though, I am a lot less dizzy and can take a lower dose of the prescription painkillers and they work/ mostly get rid of the pain.

Not had the eyeball numbing ones before they sound extra odd.

Hope you get to use your leave today and it goes well Tamo. Have you got a destination or activity planned?

Fruit loaf was delicious. Coffee was ok but not the best I have ever made.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 11:10 AM

Headaches suck.
I had a terrible one for days when i had the weird stroke thing.
Horrible! And they would only give me paracetamol :plain:

Fruit loaf is always delicious!

nonperson 26-10-2023 11:10 AM

Fingers crossed you get some leave today, tamo.

My eye thing is all done. Vision isn't too blurry, it just hurts to see anything when the sun comes out. I've mooched around some shops and bought some lunch for later. Bit annoyed though as I was gonna go to the takeaway Thai buffet place and get a tub of bits for lunch but I have timed it badly and the tourists are blocking the entire road!

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 11:23 AM

Ugh. Tourists are annoying!

long road 26-10-2023 12:20 PM

I have codeine which helps. Although it does make me a bit floaty which I am not a big fan of. Still better than being in pain!

* shakes fists at tourists* I think it might be half term which makes that kind of thing worse.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 12:34 PM

I had codeine a while ago.
Didn't have any side effects from it luckily!

I've just been to the shops and nearly got run over by a taxi who apparently does not understand how zebra crossings work.
He's done it to me before as well!

long road 26-10-2023 12:49 PM

What can I say I am a lightweight XD

Lower dose seems to be working on the pain today, when it wasn't enough yesterday. Which is good as I have less side effects on lower dose and shows I am getting better just slowly.

That taxi needs to be reported! Try and get his numberplate next time!

tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 12:56 PM

I've got an hour with staff to go down the shops..

I'm glad the pain is better today lr.

Shame about the tourists np.

nonperson 26-10-2023 01:06 PM

Hope you enjoy your hour tamo.

I'm home. Wore the wrong shoes though and now my heels are really sore from the walk home. Woe. But I think my eyes are back to normal so that is good.

long road 26-10-2023 01:12 PM

Woe to the wrong shoes NP hate that feeling, time to put your feet up!

Enjoy the shops Tamo!
