Re: A new start (kind of)

how are you going @Hamsolo01 I'm sorry to hear you're in a dark place today. I have been that way for a few weeks & drinking a lot. you seem to feel better after a sane chat so I hope you can manage that today. I'd love to tell you my cat's name but paranoid someone I know irl might recognise me & my crazy, better stay anon. I think Black Tab is perfect for here though. Do you have any pets?


hi @TAB hope you can get some food, it's important to keep your nutrients up. It's good you've had some sleep. BLack Tab is doing that just now, sooo close to the heater! did you get some petrol?


I'm about to leave for film club, the one I missed last week. Think I'm going to make it tonight (I slept in pretty late so I have energy now). Wish me luck, I'll try not to be feral - last time I went these two ladies kept talking (which is totally uncool behaviour at film club) and I said, "SHH!!" to them about as aggressively as is possible without actually swearing, I just couldn't hold it in. Then after I saw one of them in the queue for the ladies which was embarassing.

Re: A new start (kind of)

Re: A new start (kind of)

Hope you have a good day today. I have a couple of things to apply for and I'll probably do some more writing too. See how I go.

Already had my coffee for the morning but I'll definitely drink more soon lol.

Take it easy in whatever it is you are doing today
