It's Poppy Shakespeare Lindsay. According to a really old thread here it was shown on Channel 4 in 2008. It's a mh drama starring Anna Maxwell Martin.

Sometimes British programmes are available as foreign dvds but not in the UK for some reason. I have Dangerfield, The Moon Stallion, The Famous Five and The Worst Witch (1990s series not the remake) as foreign dvds. Despite them all being British programmes every single series wasn't released over here for some reason.

Hey guys

not_so_insig 01-08-2022 08:37 PM

Hello Beckie hope work went ok for you.

not_so_insig 01-08-2022 08:44 PM

I just had a very disappointing tea. I just didn't enjoy it. I was the one who cooked it so I can't blame the chef.

Cacoethes 01-08-2022 08:52 PM

Typical Monday really
Apart from a mental health escapee who turned up for a few drinks. That was a bit awks

Ah that's always so disappointing dawn

not_so_insig 01-08-2022 09:47 PM

Yes that sounds totally awks Beckie.

Cacoethes 02-08-2022 09:03 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 11:42 AM

Morning all. I had a bad night's sleep. Then the postman woke me up.

I have tesco coming today and evri. Both at the same time. Though I am hoping that evri comes first. I am disappointed at tesco because my veggie burgers that I ordered isn't available and they didn't substitute it. I am out on Thursday so might see if the co op have veggie burgers or if not beef burgers.

one_step_closer 02-08-2022 03:02 PM

Afternoon everyone, I hope your days are going ok.

Asda tried to give me hamster food instead of wild bird seeds as a substitution. I don't know if they actually use their brain. I hope you can get the burgers you want elsewhere, Dawn.

My Asda delivery was yesterday but I used the Asda delivery excuse today to get out of going to the gym group because I couldn't get out of bed. My getting up pattern is getting worse. If I could even just get up early on the two group days that would be a start.

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 04:27 PM

I have had my tesco shopping order. Having a rest between putting everything away. It's quite warm here.

Evri came about 10 minutes before the tesco man so it wasn't too bad. My evri package came from the USA and was well packaged so luckily no damage.

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 04:36 PM

Also I hope that you can find a solution for getting up Lindsay. I cant help you there.

tamobhuuta 02-08-2022 04:49 PM

The weather can't decide here.

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 05:01 PM

I am boiling but then again I have been putting my tesco shopping away. Nearly finished.

one_step_closer 02-08-2022 05:46 PM

Thanks Dawn. I'm glad you got your package from the USA with no damage. Did you have a lot to put away from your Tesco delivery? Did you get anything nice?

What's the weather been doing, Tamo?

It's warm and breezy here but I wore a jacket when I went out because somewhere said it was going to rain and it was cloudy but I don't think it's rained yet.

Cacoethes 02-08-2022 07:31 PM

Hi everyone!

Been very windy today

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 07:43 PM

Yes Lindsay I had a lot. I had a lot of veg as I am planning to do a whole chicken in my air fryer. I joined a Facebook group specifically for my air fryer and a lot of people are doing whole chicken in theirs. Normally when I do a whole chicken I shove it in my slow cooker so be interesting to see the difference taste wise. So I am doing a roast dinner in my air fryer. I even have gravy.

not_so_insig 02-08-2022 07:45 PM

Also I have raspberry mini rolls. Yum!

tamobhuuta 02-08-2022 10:16 PM

I had mint mini Swiss rolls from the freezer. They were OK but not as good as they sound.

Bits of sunshine, bits of cloud.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 08:42 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 11:22 AM

Hi :) how are you?

one_step_closer 03-08-2022 11:57 AM

Morning Beckie and Tamo. How are you both? Do you have anything planned for today?

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 12:12 PM

Hi osc! How are you?

I'm ok, just going to do the dishwasher.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 01:13 PM

Hey guys

I'm ok.
I don't really have much planned.
I've been to pilates, asda and pharmacy.
Cpn is coming later

How about you guys?

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 01:56 PM

I'm ok. I texted my CPN, chasing up some meds, and phoned the clozapine clinic (again) to sort out my next blood test which is VERY important. I'm really hoping they both get back to me this afternoon.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 02:03 PM

Don't they sort the next blood test at your appointments?

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 02:09 PM

No because that would be sensible.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 02:11 PM

They did that at mine when i was on clozapine
Had no idea it wasn't the usual thing!

not_so_insig 03-08-2022 02:13 PM

Afternoon all. I am wearing an My Little Pony tshirt today. I am off out to my local Cats Protection adoption centre later. Sadly not to adopt a cat but to donate some food. I hope the buses aren't too busy as it is play day in the city centre. I am taking my headphones just in case.

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 02:30 PM

When the clinic was at L we had to drive there but they phoned me the week before with an appointment and always ran on time so maybe it was worth it. Not here though.

Insig, I want a my little pony t shirt! I hope the buses are OK.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 02:34 PM

Weird how it's different from clinic to clinic!

not_so_insig 03-08-2022 03:39 PM

I have been to the city centre. Fortunately the buses were ok and although there were some kiddies on the bus they were quiet. Didnt use my headphones. I avoided the main bit where the play areas were though.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 03:41 PM

I cba to put my washing away
But i can't not do it because it will annoy me

not_so_insig 03-08-2022 04:32 PM

Maybe do a bit at a time Beckie?

I have put my chicken in the air fryer now. Should take about an hour to cook. Still have to do the veggies though.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 05:27 PM

I have done it!
I did think of doing a bit at a time because there was loads. But thought it would be better just to get it over and done with

Sounds good Dawn!

not_so_insig 03-08-2022 05:35 PM

Well done Beckie.

My chicken is looking good. I have the veggies cooking now so it shouldn't be too long until I eat it.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 06:00 PM

Thanks :)

Sounds lovely
Your air fryer sounds really useful!

one_step_closer 03-08-2022 06:31 PM

You all seem to have been busy. Did you get on ok with your CPN, Beckie.

I went to the walking group and it was just me and the worker. There are only two other people who go but often they don't come for reasons.

I've got lots to do in and out of the house tomorrow so I need to be up early enough to make it not feel too overwhelming. And I want to get up early anyway so that would be great if I could do that.

What are you all doing with your evening?

I thought air fryers were really small. They're good because they save heating up a whole oven.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 06:37 PM

Cpn was meh
She tried

Well done for going to the walking group lindsay

Good luck with getting up early
I know it can be a struggle

I'm watching handmaid's tale
That's all
Thought about booking pilates for tomorrow morning but I'm doing taekwando and beatz in the evening so probably shouldn't do too much

one_step_closer 03-08-2022 06:46 PM

Do you know what you wanted to happen with your CPN?


Keep doing what you can but don't push yourself too much.

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 06:49 PM

Never do
She listened which is good though
And didn't freak out like my last cpn
She did her best
I think I'm just difficult

Yeah I'm trying to slow down

tamobhuuta 03-08-2022 06:58 PM

I have a clozapine clinic appointment :)

Cacoethes 03-08-2022 07:01 PM

That's good

Cacoethes 04-08-2022 09:04 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 04-08-2022 11:33 AM

Good morning. How are you?

The police are just picking up my sister because she went off to do naughty things.

not_so_insig 04-08-2022 11:48 AM

Morning all. I am wearing my Button Moon tshirt today. I have my hearing voices group today too.

tamobhuuta 04-08-2022 12:14 PM

I hope the group is helpful insig.

Cacoethes 04-08-2022 12:33 PM

Sorry to hear about your sister tamo
I hope she's ok

I'm ok thanks
Just been to vape shop and asda
That's all i need to do until taekwando and beatz later

one_step_closer 04-08-2022 03:28 PM

I hope your sister is ok Tamo.

Do you have lots of childhood TV t-shirts Dawn? I hope the hearing voices group goes well.

Did you get a tasty flavour for your vape, Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-08-2022 04:02 PM

I have a nice berry flavour one!
Like a mixture of berries. It's nice!

Have you been up to much today?

not_so_insig 04-08-2022 04:42 PM

I dont have a lot of childhood tshirts but I do have a lot of TV themed tshirts. I recently discovered a website with a lot of retro stuff. That's where my recent tshirts plus my My Little Pony handbag came from.
