Dick Van Dyke is still as good as ever though!

chinahorse 03-02-2020 09:01 AM

Morning all :-)

tamobhuuta 03-02-2020 09:14 AM

Morning, how are you?

chinahorse 03-02-2020 09:22 AM

Worn out and dreading everything I have to do today.

How're you?

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 09:31 AM

Morning guys

I hope you manage to get everything done Lillie
Can you break it all up into chunks?

chinahorse 03-02-2020 09:51 AM

I just need to start beckie. Said to myself I will call DWP at 10.

Phone DWP, phone council, find documents, laundry, food shopping, cooking, clean bathroom, shower and do hair and dehair lol. And revise dental stuff.

chinahorse 03-02-2020 10:12 AM

I was on hold to universal credit for less than a minute!! A modern day miracle if ever there was one. And it turns out I dont need to do much other than report the change online tomorrow, the rest is done through HMRC and payroll automatically. Phew! And my meeting this week at the jobcentre has been cancelled.

Job one done. Tea as a reward and then the council. Will move for tea at 20 past.

You will get boring updates I'm afraid.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 10:14 AM

Well done Lillie!
That time on hold must be a record for them!
Usually you have to stay on hold for an hour with that awful awful music going round and round

chinahorse 03-02-2020 10:17 AM

I know! Was prepared for a good half hour minimum.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 10:24 AM

Well that's a good start to the day!

chinahorse 03-02-2020 10:27 AM

Yep. Yet to move again though :/

You up to much today?

chinahorse 03-02-2020 10:56 AM

Progress. Clean washing away. Bed made. Laundry on. Litter tray cleaned. May chain drink another cup of tea.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 12:31 PM

I've just been swimming!
There was a really old lady there who could barely walk and was in a wheelchair right up to the steps of the pool. She was really slow but fair play to her for trying to remain active!

Well done Lillie!
I think you deserve tea after all that

chinahorse 03-02-2020 12:53 PM

You enjoy it beckie?
And water is such a good way for less mobile people to exercise. She must be determined!

Now cleaned the whole house and hung up laundry. Crashed on the sofa currently.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 01:03 PM

I did thanks! The hour flew by!
Yes it is great for less mobile people. I really admire her for her determination!

You're on a roll Lillie!

not_so_insig 03-02-2020 04:27 PM

I don't know what to do with myself today. Time seems to be going slowly.

chinahorse 03-02-2020 04:45 PM

It's going to quickly for me Dawn. Mind I have had an hour and a half in bed.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 04:49 PM

How are you getting on Lillie?

chinahorse 03-02-2020 04:53 PM

I had quite bad panic attack and went to bed at around 3ish because it's where I feel safest.

Cat is bugging me for food and I need a drink and to go food shopping. Then come home cook some lunches and dinner, cut nails and shower/ do hair. Not impossible. Council will have to wait until my next week day off.

not_so_insig 03-02-2020 05:10 PM

Sorry to hear that you had an panic attack Lillie.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 05:14 PM

sorry to hear that Lillie :(

nonperson 03-02-2020 05:18 PM

Evening all.

Hope you're feeling better now, Lillie.

How's everyone? I'm impatiently waiting for a pasta bake to cook and looking at clothes I probably don't need to buy.

nonperson 03-02-2020 05:27 PM

I've also absolutely totally forgotten what I was just about to go and do... =/

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 05:31 PM

(i usually go to np's profile and follow the link from there but i can't seem to find it)

chinahorse 03-02-2020 06:08 PM

Thanks guys. Back from doing a decent food shop. Not just junk like usual. Having a sit down before cooking. Just trying to focus on each task and not get overwhelmed again.

Mmmmmm pasta bake! Clothes are so enticing though np.

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 06:15 PM

I'm not sure actually shira!
I used to be able to get it but no idea now

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:30 PM

nonperson 03-02-2020 06:35 PM


And the other question: why can't I stop eating it?!

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:38 PM

nonperson 03-02-2020 06:39 PM

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:41 PM

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 06:43 PM

Pasta is indeed amazing

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:44 PM

how're you C?

nonperson 03-02-2020 06:46 PM

We weren't even allowed earphones or phones or tablets in classes!

Probably because tablets didn't actually exist back then.... =/

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:46 PM

hey np?

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:47 PM

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 06:54 PM

this song gives me the chills sometimes....

*skips and a happy song comes on*

Cacoethes 03-02-2020 06:59 PM

I'm ok thanks shira!

We weren't allowed phones or anything in class either
Even in college we could only use phones if we were doing an online quiz or something

nonperson 03-02-2020 06:59 PM

Yeah we didn't have personal laptops in school either! And weren't allowed to listen to music in class. I think things are very different nowadays...

Work was ok. A bit quiet.

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 07:03 PM

thats good np and c ^^

thats how i liked it before i got spotify ^^"

we used to have paper only but then they went-

HEY lets give everyone a personal chromebook and they can bring their own device if they want to!

(which is what i'm doing ^^")

what are you guys doing now?

nonperson 03-02-2020 07:12 PM

Well, can't argue with that!

I am watching tv and trying to work out how much money my dad owes me for holiday tickets.

Is it lunchtime yet?

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 07:14 PM


it was lunch an hour and a half ago np ^^

how much does he owe you?

nonperson 03-02-2020 07:18 PM

Oh... well how long until the end of the day then?

Not sure because I also owe him money!

Shirayuki 03-02-2020 07:20 PM

its 2:19 now day ends at 3:00-

so no idea because i don't want to do math o o f

oh ok, how much do you both owe eachother than? ^^

chinahorse 03-02-2020 07:26 PM

Pasta is amazing!

I've had dinner and washed up and cooked lunches and washed that up at the same time too. And cut and filed my nails as they were too long for my job. All I have left to do now is shower and wash hair and shave and eurgh.
