Hello peeps

one_step_closer 05-12-2023 04:44 PM

My (ex) friend thought she had invented nose hats but they are actually a thing.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 04:45 PM

I imagine they'd look a bit silly!

one_step_closer 05-12-2023 04:46 PM

Very silly! Are you keeping warm, Beckie?

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 05:08 PM

Got my oodie, hot water bottle, heated shark and i have had the heating on a bit today.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 05:14 PM

It's chilly here too. I'm wearing a jumper dress and an oodie and I'm still a bit cool. I could do my hot water bottle..

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 05:17 PM

I love a hot water bottle

Hospitals are usually too hot!

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 05:42 PM

My toes are particularly chilly. I need socks with extra thick toes. My room is warmer than the main area.

long road 05-12-2023 05:59 PM

I'd rather be too cold than too hot. Easier to solve being too cold than being too hot.

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 06:13 PM


Cacoethes 05-12-2023 06:29 PM

Also agreed

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 06:44 PM

My friend R was late so they sent him away until after dinner. He's kind enough to wait :)

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 06:47 PM

That's nice of him :)

not_so_insig 05-12-2023 06:49 PM

My tree is up. Along with every other Christmas decorations bar the snowglobes and the window lights.

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 06:56 PM

I do like a nice snow globe.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 07:21 PM

What's everyone up to this evening?

tamobhuuta 05-12-2023 07:55 PM

My friend has been :) we had a good talk also he heard my Confession, anointed me and gave me Communion. L is going to be here soon. What about you?

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 08:15 PM

Sounds like a good evening tamo

I was going to go to krav maga, but i got there and the gate was locked
So i guess it's not on tonight
Disappointing but probably for the best

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 08:22 PM

Hey all,

I'm just home from work, plan is dinner and then to my other job

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 08:33 PM

Hey beth!
Sounds like an exhausting day for you
Anything good for dinner?

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 08:43 PM

I'll just see what's in the freezer :)

Yeah I'm exhausted, Yesterday I took my cat to cat hospital at 7am, then worked 7:45-6, picked her up (from another branch of where I work) and did a food shop, today I worked 7:45-6 and then have the quiz so I'll be home about 11, and then up to be at work at 7:45am tomorrow.

At least my other shifts this week are shorter, I do longer on Mondays and Tuesdays so I can have Thursday afternoons off for my therapy.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 08:46 PM

Hope there's something good!

That is a LOT!
I'm tired just reading that!

long road 05-12-2023 08:49 PM

Hey everyone,
Have read but not much energy to reply. Soz.

I lost a big chunk of the day sleeping off strong painkillers but they helped with the pain and they have worn off now and pain is there but manageable.

Just finishing watching Venom.

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 08:51 PM

What're you having?

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 08:51 PM

Ninja LR. I"m glad the painkillers helped, that's something

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 08:54 PM

I'm glad the painkillers helped jen
Venom is such a good film

long road 05-12-2023 09:03 PM

Planning on watching the sequel at some point soon.

Just about to have a late dinner of sausage and root veg stovie myself.

Cacoethes 05-12-2023 09:05 PM

I liked the sequel

Nice! That always sounds so good

Ahimsa 05-12-2023 09:06 PM

What's a stovie?

Zurg 05-12-2023 09:21 PM

I've gone to bed. Boring of me!!!
Today was too much. Not in a bad sense but just too many thoughts and feelings. I sat on my balcony a short while because the cold can help to ground me but i kept seeing weird lights flashing in the sky so i guess i'm tired since my mind is playing so many obvious tricks on me tonight.
Aaaaaand they're having a part next door. Because it's tuesday evening so of course it's time to party…. *eye roll*
My support worker is back from vacation tomorrow. From Thailand and +30 degrees to snow covering everything. I did laugh the evil laughter a tiny bit when imagining him stepping out of the plane >:)

long road 05-12-2023 09:35 PM

It's kind of halfway between roast and a stew/ casserole. Hard to describe. The dictionary definition is a Scottish dish consisting of potatoes cooked with onions.

In my recipe I use you fry off sausages and onions, then place in your root veg and potato around the sausages and onions and cover with stock. Cook for around 30 minutes until stick has mostly boiled off / been absorbed by the veg, you have a sticky sauce and light caramelisation on bottom of veg.

Hope your bed is lovely and cosy Zurg and that the parity next door finishes nicely eand early.

Cacoethes 06-12-2023 05:32 AM

Morning everyone

Zurg 06-12-2023 09:14 AM

Morning Beckie :)
What is happening today??
My support worker has cancelled our appointment. Because he's old, pathetic and has fallen ill upon arriving back from the tropics XD

Cacoethes 06-12-2023 09:18 AM

Morning zurg!

I have my medical monitoring appointment, then crisis team.
And still waiting for phone call of doom.
A fun filled day for me...

How rude of him!

Zurg 06-12-2023 10:54 AM

The phone call of doom o_o
I hope something gets sorted soon because nobody can stand being in such a limbo for very long. I would totally be triggered on my 'run away and start over somewhere else'-mode.
I hope there'll be some sort of action happening. Or just someone saying when to expect it to happen <3

I'm going to go all evil on my support worker when he's back. He'll never live this down!!! *evil laughter ensues* >:)

tamobhuuta 06-12-2023 11:06 AM

Morning everyone. I have ward rounds today, bit nervous.
Good luck with all your things Cacoethes. .
Sorry your appointment ha been cancelled Zurg.

long road 06-12-2023 11:42 AM

Calling DWP today after feelong too rubbish yesterday. The hold music sounds a bit like they recorded loft music on a tape recorder.

long road 06-12-2023 11:42 AM

Also good morning everyone!

one_step_closer 06-12-2023 12:19 PM

Morning everyone.

Hope things are going ok, Beckie.

Be nice to your support worker, Kat!

Good luck with your ward round, Tamo.

Hope you're not still on the phone with the DWP, Jen.

long road 06-12-2023 12:28 PM

I ma not it was relatively quick only took 35 minutes. And now have an extension on my PIP review.

How are you Lindsay? Hope Crookshanks is behaving today!

tamobhuuta 06-12-2023 01:07 PM

Well done calling DWP lr.

Thanks osc. How's your day going?

long road 06-12-2023 01:51 PM

Hey Tamo!

How is your day going?

My OT is visiting at 3pm.

one_step_closer 06-12-2023 04:21 PM

I'm not great but got through my to do list. Crookshanks is currently on his bed upstairs. It's quite funny because if I need to move him because I need to get to the washing in the box room I just lift him up on his bed and put him in the bathroom and then lift him back to his spot when I've finished and he doesn't even move off his bed!

How are you getting on, Tamo?

Hope your OT visit is going well, Jen.

tamobhuuta 06-12-2023 04:36 PM

Well done for doing your list osc. Crookshanks is cute.

Hope the visit was good lr.

I've been working through my coping list too. I'm watching Candy Cane Lane.

long road 06-12-2023 05:35 PM

He he he must think his bed is a flying carpet Lindsay XD

I assume Candy Cane Lane is a Christmas movie Tamo? I can't say I have heard of it. Any good? Well done in working hard to use coping techniques.

My OT visit went well. My OT is really good. Have a few ideas to try and she is going to see if she can get us a crash mat so we have one as extra safety measure when I am having a bad day. Because eparntw rcnat supervise me 24/7.

Cacoethes 06-12-2023 05:47 PM

Hey guys
Sorry for not catching up
I am tired and grumpy

long road 06-12-2023 05:58 PM

Sending hugs Beckie.

Understandable you would be grumpy.

I just thought of one positive of being in hospital the ward will have a TV license so you should be able to watch iPlayer while you are there. Which means you don't have to pay for last doctor who special.

Cacoethes 06-12-2023 06:10 PM

Thank you

That is very true! Hadn't thought of that :)

long road 06-12-2023 06:19 PM

You know me I think about everything. One might even call it overthinking at times XD

tamobhuuta 06-12-2023 06:44 PM

Crash mat sounds good!

How busy is the ward Cacoethes?

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 07:11 AM.
