I did my underarms. I really did only have to wait 2 minutes.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 01:46 PM

I have just had a cookie (had a Subway for lunch).

Hope you enjoy the beach, Jen and it's not too cold.

Give kitty a cuddle from me, Dawn.

I'm glad you enjoyed your hot chocolate, Beckie. Perfect on a day like this.

Glad you enjoyed your walk, Lio. Did you go somewhere scenic?

I probably should go out for a bit.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 01:47 PM

Yay for non-hairy underarms!

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 01:50 PM

Hi Lio.

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 01:52 PM

Ninja Lindsay. Yes I will give my kitty a fuss he loves tons of fuss.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 01:56 PM

I currently have a cat lap warmer.

nonperson 15-10-2023 01:57 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Love this autumn weather - cold but the sun is really warm. Perfect for walks and beaches.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 01:58 PM

Hey, NP.

Have you been out yourself?

nonperson 15-10-2023 01:59 PM

Only to work but that was outside and I had to walk around the garden so I think that still counts.

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 02:02 PM

I gave my cat a fuss Lindsay. He did a brief knead on me. Last night he sat on his new blankie.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 02:08 PM

That definitely counts, NP. Are you finished for the day?

Aww cutie.

nonperson 15-10-2023 02:10 PM

I've gotta go back later to lock up.

Did you say you were going out? Is it as sunny in Scotland?

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 02:15 PM

It's sunny here

long road 15-10-2023 02:15 PM

We sat on a bench on a hill overlooking the sea and the cliffs and the beach and ate pasties. It's a lovely view and one of our favourite spots. Was sunny but crisp air perfect weather.

Very tired and a little short of breath now though so have come back home and got into bed. Going to try and nap.

tamobhuuta 15-10-2023 02:34 PM

It's sunny here.
I've just had PRN. Now there's that period of time where I find it gets worse before it gets better.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 02:36 PM

I'm not sure if I'll go out. It is sunny but not really bright.

Sounds nice, Jen. I hope you can nap.

How long does it usually take for PRN to help you, Tamo? What are you going to do in the meantime?

Cacoethes 15-10-2023 03:05 PM

A lot to catch up on!

I got bored and restless so went out again

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 03:48 PM

You need to find some indoor/restful activities you can focus on. What did you get up to when you went out?

tamobhuuta 15-10-2023 03:56 PM

It normally takes about 20 mins to get to manageable then the full hour to feel calm again I'm lisgrninc to music and drawing.

Cacoethes 15-10-2023 03:57 PM

I don't find restful activities fun or engaging!
I'm going out in a bit anyway.
L's friends son's bday party at a pool house.
And then i have to go out later to put a return in an inpost locker. But that's only at the train station.
I just went to the big sainsburys. Just outside of town.

tamobhuuta 15-10-2023 04:00 PM

That's a week of jobs!

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 04:21 PM

What are you drawing, Tamo? I have a book that is something like 642 things to draw.

I hope you have a good time, Beckie.

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 04:44 PM

I have that book too Lindsay. Lorraine gave it to me.

tamobhuuta 15-10-2023 05:06 PM

I went back and added to a picture of the Man, then started a new one of me at the crucifixion.

one_step_closer 15-10-2023 06:29 PM

Do you use it, Dawn?

Is there something more neutral you could draw, Tamo?

Cacoethes 15-10-2023 07:05 PM

I'm back again!
This time for good, probably XD

tamobhuuta 15-10-2023 08:38 PM

Neutral is boring!

not_so_insig 15-10-2023 09:05 PM

No I haven't used it Lindsay.

long road 16-10-2023 07:50 AM

Morning Everyone!

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 08:13 AM


long road 16-10-2023 09:09 AM

How is Monday in your part of the world today Beckie?

It's a bit grey and chilly here but alright.

Just had a raspberry croissant and a coffee for breakfast.

tamobhuuta 16-10-2023 09:36 AM

Hi. Sounds tastey lr.

How are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 09:48 AM

Not too bad thanks jen
Bit chilly!

Oohh that sounds nice!

Morning tamo
I'm ok i think
How are you?

tamobhuuta 16-10-2023 10:00 AM

I'm ok dreading ward rounds this afternoon. Are you up to anything?

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 10:11 AM

Hope it goes ok.

I have 2 appointments, need to go to aldi, put washing away later, that's about it.
I'll probably end up going for a couple of walks too when i inevitably get bored and restless with being in the house

long road 16-10-2023 10:17 AM

I know it's chilly here becaus eI ma actually wearing a jumper indoors and have yet to take it off because I have got too hot!

Picked up the croissant when we got pasties from the bakery yesterday and saved it for this morning. Was a good treat.

Good luck with ward round Tamo.

Hope your appointments go well Beckie. Try not to go on too many walks but I totally understand the restlessness.

I am trying to work out what to do with my day. Done breakfast and nearly all my meds (just got to do sinus rinse so I can do nasal spray and then take iron tablet when it hits 11am). Might watch some Doctor Who. I got through the weirdness that was the flux episodes, so odd, and just have the last 3 specials with the thirteenth doctor to watch. Want to make sure I have watched them before November when new specials come out.

tamobhuuta 16-10-2023 10:33 AM

Thanks for the good wishes.

Like lr says, don't overdo it Cacoethes.

Have fun rinsing your sinuses lr...

long road 16-10-2023 11:07 AM

I wouldn't say I find sinus rinsing fun, but I do feel better afterwards and I am getting used to the feeling.

Still can't work out what to do with my day. Don't really feel like watching TV so just sitting here listening to music, occasionally looking at the internet or pottering about

one_step_closer 16-10-2023 11:19 AM

Morning everyone.

I put my hat on for the first time in a while.

Good luck with your ward round, Tamo.

Hope your day goes well, Beckie.

Is your partner around for another trip in the car, Jen?

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 11:23 AM

First appointment was fine. Painful, but fine XD
Having a wax at 12. Clearly i just hate myself today with the painful appointments! Best to get it all done in one go I guess!

Yeah the flux episodes were weird.
Even for doctor who!

I'll try not to overdo it!
It's actually not too cold atm.
I'm sat in the market Square with an almond milk hot chocolate. It's fine in the sun

Morning lindsay!

one_step_closer 16-10-2023 11:24 AM

I could not deal with waxing!

No sun here unfortunately. I am in my house but still freezing.

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 11:38 AM

It's not really that bad!
But i have a ridiculously high pain threshold tbh XD

Have you put the heating on yet?
I'm still holding off but come close!

long road 16-10-2023 11:51 AM

Is it a wooly hat Lindsay? I can see why you would need one with the weather as it is.

My partner is still asleep. He's exhausted bless him so don't want to wake him.

Started watching Doctor Who, not sure I am into it today though.

No heating on here but might be considering it

Zurg 16-10-2023 12:29 PM

Hi all :)
I put my heating on about, maybe, two weeks ago….??? But i tend to mostly just have it on in my livingroom and bathroom. If it's get really cold i put it on in the kitchen and bedroom as well. But that doesn't happen very often.
It's really cold outside today. I started wearing my winter jacket this weekend. And winter boots too. Brrrr!!!!

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 02:11 PM

I am home but need to go to the retail park.

What's the temperature where you are zurg?

long road 16-10-2023 02:38 PM

You have a menagerie to keep warm though Zurg and living in a colder place so makes sense!

Will you get doughballs at the retail park Beckie?

I did an online shop, partner will pick up our click and collect order at 1pm tomorrow. Actually got enough meals for the whole week, which is more planning than I have done in a while. Hopefully my lungs behave enough we get to eat it all!

Cacoethes 16-10-2023 02:45 PM

No i won't jen

That's good!

one_step_closer 16-10-2023 02:53 PM

My heating is set to go on if it gets below 16 degrees as a council person told me that's as low as it should be or pipes might burst. I sometimes put it up to 20 degrees but just let it warm the house a bit and then turn it back down so it doesn't actually get to 20 degrees.

long road 16-10-2023 02:56 PM

What you getting instead then?

I got a few treats some ice-creams, crunchy bran cereal and I got my partner some country slices because they are his favourite.

My lungs are playing up a bit post nap.

Mine comes on automatically at 18 degrees but my thermostat is in the warmest part of the house so usually we manually put it on for a few hours when the outer rooms feel cold.

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 11:12 PM.
