Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 08-03-2022 12:41 PM

Hi insig, how are you?

not_so_insig 08-03-2022 01:54 PM

I am slightly sad but otherwise ok thanks tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 08-03-2022 05:13 PM

I'd like details about how a police man stole your tea Tamo!

NP I use the pill pocket things and hide the meds in there and he eats it all. He eats anything. The vet only gave me one dose of painkiller which seems strange.

It's just turned very windy here.

I hope you feel better soon Dawn.

not_so_insig 08-03-2022 07:08 PM

Thanks Lindsay. I am a lot better than recent days.

tamobhuuta 08-03-2022 07:58 PM

With the police man, I'd made myself a cup of tea and left it on the table. When he came in he saw the cup and said, "oo, is that for me?" and I couldn't bear saying it was mine

tamobhuuta 09-03-2022 11:04 AM

Morning all. Where is everyone?

not_so_insig 09-03-2022 12:12 PM

I am here tamobhuuta. I had an ransom note from Royal Mail through my door today.

tamobhuuta 09-03-2022 12:14 PM

Are you expecting anything?

not_so_insig 09-03-2022 12:20 PM

Yes 3 packages. Trouble is I don't know who to blame as the ransom note was due to incorrect postage.

tamobhuuta 09-03-2022 12:47 PM

Oh dear, I guess you have to ring them?

not_so_insig 09-03-2022 12:50 PM

No once I have had my package I will contact the sender and ask for my money back. They're all ebay purchases so can leave negative feedback if they don't pay up.

one_step_closer 09-03-2022 03:25 PM

Hi everyone.

That's a shame about your package(s) Dawn. That's why I always send things going to the actual post office so I know it's the right postage.

How are you Tamo?

How is anyone else who ventures into this thread?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2022 05:47 PM

I'm ok thanks, how are you osc?

one_step_closer 09-03-2022 05:54 PM

I'm glad you're ok. What are you doing this evening?

I'm quite low but also sort of empty.

tamobhuuta 10-03-2022 10:19 AM

Good morning.

not_so_insig 10-03-2022 12:22 PM

Afternoon all.

I think I know which eBay seller didn't pay the correct postage as I received a parcel this morning and the only other one I am waiting for has been sent recorded. I am off to the sorting office tomorrow to hopefully get it sorted. I also received an postcard from postcrossing and a brand new recycling box and bag (after mine got lost about 2 weeks ago due to the storm) today.

tamobhuuta 10-03-2022 12:53 PM

Post is excellent - until it's stressful!

I'm waiting for my MRI.

nonperson 10-03-2022 01:11 PM

How's Crookshanks doing, Lindsay?

one_step_closer 10-03-2022 03:35 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Have you had your MRI now Tamo? How was it?

I hope you get things sorted out with your post Dawn. How can you only have a recycling box? Is that not too small? Do you have multiple boxes for different things? We have normal bins for our recycling.

Crookshanks is taking his meds so that's good. I've managed to squeeze out three doses of the pain killer but he's still licking his wound and I think I'm about to run out of the pain killer. The hole looks a bit bigger than it was but hopefully it will heal up soon.

tamobhuuta 10-03-2022 04:11 PM

My sister's cat was like that, he totally rejected food with meds hidden in it. He's got better about it now.

The MRI was fine. Noisey! But they play you music in special headphones.

one_step_closer 10-03-2022 05:10 PM

What was the music like?

nonperson 10-03-2022 07:03 PM

I didn't get music when I had my MRI!

I'm glad Crookshanks is doing ok. Hopefully he's just keeping the wound clean rather than being in pain from it.

tamobhuuta 10-03-2022 07:20 PM

It was just Heart radio.

not_so_insig 10-03-2022 07:51 PM

Lindsay I have a box for plastics and tins, a separate box for glass plus a paper bag recycling wise. Oh and a food recycling box. My glass box and paper recycling bag went missing in the storms because I live in a windy spot. Fortunately I had a spare of the paper recycling bag but not the glass box. So I requested a new paper bag and glass box the day it went missing and it got delivered today. I also had some food caddy bags but they weren't missing just running low and it usually take an month for the bin men to give them. So I am alright now for a while until the next windy day comes.

tamobhuuta 11-03-2022 10:51 AM

Hello x

one_step_closer 11-03-2022 12:53 PM

Afternoon Tamo. How are you?

tamobhuuta 11-03-2022 02:26 PM

I'm ok, how are you?

one_step_closer 11-03-2022 02:44 PM

Confused about if my Amazon orders will be delivered or if my cancellation has went through. I need to get rid of them because they are biscuits and I'm trying not to eat so many snacks. Stupid night time ordering.

What have you been up to today?

tamobhuuta 11-03-2022 02:49 PM

How stressful. I've just been using my coping skills.

one_step_closer 11-03-2022 02:52 PM

That's good. I hope you feel better for using them.

not_so_insig 11-03-2022 04:13 PM

I have been for coffee with my friend. Then walked to Poundland for an gift bag and went to pay the ransom note from Royal Mail. Contacted the ebay seller and got a refund.

one_step_closer 11-03-2022 04:43 PM

Sounds like a productive day Dawn. Well done with getting things sorted. Did you enjoy seeing your friend?

tamobhuuta 11-03-2022 07:05 PM

Well done insig.

How are you osc?

tamobhuuta 12-03-2022 10:34 AM

Good morning.

nonperson 12-03-2022 12:26 PM


not_so_insig 12-03-2022 01:10 PM

Afternoon all. My 2 Keeping Up Appearances tshirts arrived today. Now to decide which one to wear.

tamobhuuta 12-03-2022 01:54 PM

Hi np :)

What colours are they insig?

not_so_insig 12-03-2022 02:30 PM

One is mostly black and the other is mostly white.

This is them


tamobhuuta 12-03-2022 02:41 PM

I have no idea who they are...

not_so_insig 12-03-2022 03:00 PM

They are characters from the sitcom Keeping Up Appearances. My signature pic shows 2 of them and my user title is a quote from the show. It's my favourite TV programme.

one_step_closer 12-03-2022 03:12 PM

Hi everyone, how are your days going?

Do you have lots of Keeping Up Appearances themed things Dawn?

not_so_insig 12-03-2022 03:47 PM

I have 4 tshirts, a mug, a cassette tape set and 3 sets of dvds.

one_step_closer 12-03-2022 05:10 PM

A true fan!

not_so_insig 12-03-2022 07:37 PM

I have discovered that there's a Keeping Up Appearances face mask too. Wales is getting rid of face masks at the end of the month otherwise I would get it.

nonperson 12-03-2022 08:41 PM

England has got rid of facemasks too but people are still wearing them (me).

not_so_insig 12-03-2022 09:08 PM

I won't be wearing mine unless it's on the bus. I find my glasses get steamed up. I also have trouble breathing whilst climbing stairs whilst wearing an mask. Then I panic because I cant breathe which makes the situation worse. That's when there's a lift option I take it.

tamobhuuta 13-03-2022 10:13 AM

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 13-03-2022 11:11 AM

Hey guys

one_step_closer 13-03-2022 03:29 PM

Hello everyone. Nice to see you all. How are you doing?

I will continue to wear my mask in the places I already wear it when I comes to the 21st (Scotland's date for making it not a legality) there will still be guidance to wear a mask in some places so I'm going to stick to that.
