What tattoo are you getting?

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 03:22 PM

Hi Tamo, how are you getting on?

tamobhuuta 12-05-2022 03:36 PM

Well done for your activities :)

I am ok. Mum helped me throw a load of old clothes out.

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 03:41 PM

Does that give you more space for new clothes? :-D Well done, it can be a task. I've got some boxes to go through but can't find the motivation.

not_so_insig 12-05-2022 05:03 PM

Hello all.

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 05:07 PM

Hi Dawn, how is your day going?

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 05:12 PM

I looooovveee my new tattoo!!!
Gonna post a pic on fb soon

one_step_closer 12-05-2022 05:17 PM

I'm glad you're pleased :-D How many tattoos do you have?

Cacoethes 12-05-2022 05:27 PM

I have 10 tattoos!
And may or may not have booked another....not until July though! And it will be a full day session!

not_so_insig 12-05-2022 05:33 PM

I am ok apart thanks Lindsay. I had a stressful time but fortunately its been sorted thanks to my dad.

not_so_insig 13-05-2022 07:58 AM

First to post ! Beat Beckie lol.

Morning all.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:47 AM

Oh nooo!
How dare you! :tongue2:

Morning dawn
How are you?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2022 11:21 AM

Hi both. How are you?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 11:22 AM

I'm ok. Waiting for removal guy. And cpn to call. And amazon!

How are you?

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 11:55 AM

Morning (almost afternoon).

Are you addicted to tattoos Beckie?! Sounds like you've got a bit of waiting to do today. I hope you can occupy yourself while you wait. Plus I have to say it, another Amazon parcel! I can say that but I have one coming today too.

How are you today Dawn?

How's things Tamo?

I hope you all have a good day.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 11:59 AM

Hey lindsay!
How are you?

Cpn called and removal guy has taken the stuff!
He was very nice.

Yes i am very addicted to tattoos!

Yep another amazon parcel! Lol
Are you getting anything exciting?

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:07 PM

I'm not sure how I am, low I guess but I did get up when my support worker phoned at 9am but no one is going to phone over the weekend so it might be harder but I don't want to have a lie in and break the routine.

Did it go ok with your CPN? I'm glad you've got two of your waiting things over. Do you have a time for your Amazon order?

My Amazon order is bottles with clips for putting hand sanitiser in. I have them on all my bags but I dropped my bag yesterday and the lid of the bottle cracked so I couldn't get it closed so need a replacement. What about your order?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 12:14 PM

Well done!
You should be proud of yourself :)

Yeah it went fine. We had a slight argument about carers but i pointed out it wasn't one of my CTO conditions. She eventually had to admit they can't force me to have them and to speak to them when they come to assess me. So i will tell them directly that i don't want them!
Amazon order should be coming between 11:15-1:15
Which is pretty early for this area!

Ah ok!
Nothing too exciting then!
I ordered 6 big cans of deodorant.
I like to stock up on things like that! Ends up being cheaper than buying them at the supermarket.
I've also got LOADS of face wipes, hand soap and toothpaste!
And toilet roll off Groupon! Which i need to order soon

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:24 PM

What do the carers do for you? Would you be safe without them?

Wow, you could create a bunker with all that stuff! I thought I was bad just getting things like if I just started a hand wash bottle I'd get another bottle to keep until the other one runs out. I don't leave things till I really need them. Where do you even store all your stuff?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 12:33 PM

Literally all they are meant to do is make sure i take my meds. Which I've been doing on my own for weeks now anyway! And I don't plan on stopping!

I could!
I'm just terrible at forgetting to buy things that i don't buy all the time. Like coke zero i always remember because i get it all the time. But things like bin bags and deodorant i don't buy for a really long time and requires me to go down other aisles in asda. So i always forget!
And the toilet roll ends up cheaper buying from Groupon.
And toilet roll is always good to have a stock of!
I have a big cupboard under the stairs!
Most of it i can get in my bathroom though!

Amazon have been so i have nothing to do for the rest of the day!

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 12:40 PM

I'm glad you have a positive attitude about your meds and will keep taking them without the carers.

Sounds like you're on top of the things you need. I just put a list in my phone when I need something and add to it as other things are needed.

Do you know what you're going to do with the rest of your day?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 12:52 PM

I just don't want to end up as ill as i was last time
I literally nearly died!
It wasn't a good time!

Yep i am! Got to have at least one thing in my life sorted XD
Phone lists never worked for me. But I'm glad you get on with them :)

No idea!
I feel like i need a new piercing but i can't really afford it today! So I'd better not!

one_step_closer 13-05-2022 04:55 PM

Do you even have any ear space left? :laugh: Or are you thinking of getting one somewhere else?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 05:37 PM

Haha! You'd be surprised at how many piercings you can get in an ear! :-D
I've been thinking of getting a couple of lip piercings too

nonperson 13-05-2022 08:13 PM


Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:22 PM

Yo np!
How be you?

nonperson 13-05-2022 08:28 PM


Tired. =( How're you? Do you know there's a new Three Days Grace album out?

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 08:42 PM

Do you have the weekend off now?

I'm good thanks!
Ooooh i did not know that! Will be checking that out for sure!

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:05 PM

Yep, no work until Monday.

I've known the singles for a while but listened through the album today. Need to listen some more to make a proper opinion but there were some stand out songs straight away.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 09:29 PM

Good good!
Hopefully you'll have time to rest!

I'll add them to my playlist and have a listen tomorrow!

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:43 PM

Well I should be tackling my knee height lawn... but yeah, hopefully some rest.

Awesome. =D

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 09:48 PM

Oh dear!
I think my lawn would be in the same state if my neighbour didn't cut it for me lol

nonperson 13-05-2022 09:54 PM

Mine's not proper lawn grass so gets out of hand easily. I was proud of giving it an early mow but haven't done it since so... whoops. Going to have to strim it first cos even my mighty mower probably won't go through it. =(

My neighbour's lawn is immaculate.

Cacoethes 13-05-2022 10:25 PM

I can't deal with strimmers!
They terrify me!!

nonperson 13-05-2022 10:33 PM

I have a tiny electric one at home, it's simple enough,.

The petrol ones at work scare me a bit. But I do like strimming. it's a nice, simple, mindless sort of task.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 09:55 AM

I think i might be able to handle an electric one

Morning everyone!
Had a lie in until nearly 9am this morning!

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 10:21 AM

Morning all. I received the book today Lindsay thanks very much.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2022 11:02 AM

Morning :) I'm enjoying my new blackout curtain.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 11:08 AM

That's good! :)

tamobhuuta 14-05-2022 11:09 AM

Any plans for today?

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 11:22 AM

Morning everyone.

Did you enjoy your lie in Beckie? What have you got on today?

You're welcome Dawn, I hope you enjoy it.

Is it not harder to get up in the morning with a blackout curtain Tamo?

I've not got much to do today. Been to Tesco and to my horror they don't seem to sell chilled soup any more. I'll have to try Aldi tomorrow.

Oh and I got myself up at 8.50am without a phone call from my support worker (they don't work at the weekend).

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 11:48 AM

Nope no plans whatsoever!
It's too hot for me today!
Though my house is good at keeping cool

I did enjoy my lie in thanks lindsay!

That's fantastic lindsay! Well done!
Shame about the soup though
Always sad when a supermarket stops doing something you like!

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 12:52 PM

Is anyone going to be watching the football or Eurovision tonight? Bet Ukraine win.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:11 PM

I heard Ukraine are the favourites to win

not_so_insig 14-05-2022 01:20 PM

I won't be watching football but I am gonna watch Eurovision.

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 01:25 PM

I won't be watching either of them. I'll just be watching some catch up TV.

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:28 PM

I'm just browsing tinder lol

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 01:30 PM

Ooh, are you looking for someone?

Cacoethes 14-05-2022 01:55 PM

Kind of!
Downloaded it in hospital during a slight hypomania!
But I've kept it.
Maybe the right person will pop up!

one_step_closer 14-05-2022 04:57 PM

Fingers crossed, if it would be good for you to have someone.
