I'm on my way home!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 05:44 PM

Yay!
Got any plans for when you get home?

Buttons. 20-05-2018 06:38 PM

Hey all :) and believe me after doing nursing slime is just fine by me, I've seen worse :P

nonperson 20-05-2018 06:42 PM

Haha, I'm not bothered by the slime to be honest! It's an oddly satisfying job. =P

I think I would be bothered by the stuff that's worse than slime that you've had to deal with...!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 06:44 PM

I've seen some sh*t (literally) being a HCA so slime shouldn't be too bad!
Still ew though!

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 07:06 PM

See, I used to be fine with mopping up all kinds of bodily fluids but I'm quite squeamish these days!!

Though I have to go back to that soon, not sure how that will go!!

I reckon I'd be okay with pond slime though!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 07:37 PM

Fun times!
I want to go back to that sort of work for some reason!

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 07:46 PM

I'm sure you'll be able to when you're ready!

You can come do it for me if you like. I'll need to keep the money though :P

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 07:48 PM

That sounds like a pretty crap deal tbh :tongue2:

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 07:53 PM

Well... not for me! :P

Aubergine 20-05-2018 07:59 PM

Hello!

nonperson 20-05-2018 08:04 PM

Hi! =)

chinahorse 20-05-2018 08:05 PM

Evening everyone.

I've been asleep since 3pm :/

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 08:06 PM

It's got to be a no Hannah :p

Hi Aubergine!
How are you?

Must have needed the sleep Lillie!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 08:17 PM

If I plan an impulse trip, would it still be considered impulsive and therefore a cause for concern?

nonperson 20-05-2018 08:21 PM

I think the clue is in the phrase "impulse trip". Maybe it is a cause for concern if you're worried it might be.

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 08:30 PM

Meh. I never think anything is a cause for concern. Which often means there is :laugh:
Ain't life crazy :tongue2:

chinahorse 20-05-2018 08:54 PM

Methinks, financially wise, you'd best plan a trip to the local park beckie!

I'm still so so tired.

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 08:56 PM

That is a very good point Lillie!

When do you usually go to bed?

Aubergine 20-05-2018 09:04 PM

Hello again! Sorry to disappear. Was really supposed to be listening to things in church. :wow:


How're you guys?

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 09:10 PM

Hey Aubergine!
How was church?

Im ok.
Looking forward to bed because fresh sheets and PJs!

Aubergine 20-05-2018 09:14 PM

Oooo fresh sheets are awesome! And clean PJs. I'm jealous! Maybe I will change my sheets before bed... :D Though I have slept under a sheet to start with the past couple of nights - so hot! lways wake up under my duvet though.


Church was good. Pentecost. :)

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 09:17 PM

Glad church was good Ducky :)

I had clean sheets last night. Such a good feeling!

chinahorse 20-05-2018 09:19 PM

I usually go to bed about half 9, 10 on a Sunday. It gets earlier as the week goes on lol.

Ooo that's the best beckie!!

Glad you had a lovely time aubergine :)

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 09:19 PM

Glad church was good :)

It is the best feeling!
I struggle to sleep not under a duvet, regardless of heat!
I need the weight on me.
Not sure why!

Bedtime soon then Lillie?

Aubergine 20-05-2018 09:19 PM

Hey Hannah. :) How are you?


Hooray for clean sheets! I think I'm going to have to make the effort to put some on my bed...

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 09:20 PM

I'm the same Beckie, I can't usually sleep without a duvet. I just stick a leg out if it's hot :P

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 09:21 PM

Doooo it Ducky, it will be worth it!

I'm okay. I just painted my nails bright pink.

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 09:24 PM

Yep I stick a leg out when it's hot too!
I also have a fan which helps!

Do it Aubergine!
You'll be glad if you do!

Nice Hannah!
I considered painting my nails today but I only have 2 colours and didn't fancy red or turquoise

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 09:32 PM

I'm off to bed now guys
Night night all and sleep well!

Aubergine 20-05-2018 09:38 PM

I did it!


Night night, Beckie. I hope you sleep well. :)

chinahorse 20-05-2018 09:42 PM

Oooo nice hannah!

Ahhhh it'll be lush when you get in aubergine. Be glad you did it.

Night beckie, sleep well.

I need to shower and go to bed myself but I still haven't had dinner.

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 09:47 PM

You can do it Lillie. What's for dinner?

Sleep well Beckie!

Yay, well done for doing it Ducky!

chinahorse 20-05-2018 09:52 PM

But I don't wanna get ready for a full week of work :'-(

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 10:28 PM

Yeah, I get that :( But at least being ready now will make it better in the morning!

chinahorse 20-05-2018 10:50 PM

True. And I am now clean and bag packed and uniform out for tomorrow. And in bed. Although I did have Ferrero rocher for dinner lol

How're you darling?

Aubergine 20-05-2018 11:03 PM

Well done, Lillie. :) You're a star. :)


I've been getting excited looking at NHS trainee pharmacy technician jobs. Full-time, so a bit beyond me right now, but the aim is to start looking the first part of 2019 to start later in the year when the new intake starts. :) Only like 18 months. There's no saying I would get a position, as they're competative, but I've got good experience (over 5 years, because I am old) and with the health sciences certificate and my pharmacy qualification, I might be OK. We'll see.

chinahorse 20-05-2018 11:34 PM

What's the difference between that and what you do at the minute? It's so good to be excited about the future!

Hmmm. I'm just sort of adulting a bit. But Im too ouchy and poorly to sleep. Which sucks as I have to get up at 6.20 for work.

Aubergine 20-05-2018 11:43 PM

At the moment I am a dispenser in an outpatient department pharmacy. Without doing tech training, there's not much I can do progression wise, other than going into management (back in community) which I would be absolutely terrible at and have no interest in. I don't really want to do the tech training with my current company, because the training in hospitals is much better and more highly regarded if you want to move about within/between hospitals. Plus, I'd never be able to get the evidence required/put in the hours training in a part-time role (I only work 16 hours.) Inpatient pharmacies have different processes etc. I'd really like to go into medicines management, up on the wards and stuff. That's the dream!


Ah Lillie. I'm sorry that you're too ouchy and poorly to sleep. :( *hug* 6:20am is super early. I'm sorry that you can't rest. I'll go for you. :)

nonperson 20-05-2018 11:48 PM

Any volunteers to go to work for me tomorrow too?

Aubergine 20-05-2018 11:51 PM

I'm already doing my job and Lillie's job. Not sure I can split myself in three. :P

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 11:53 PM

Oh Lillie, I'm sorry, that sounds miserable :( I really hope you do manage to get some sleep. *offers gentle hugs*

NP, I'll swap with you if you like :P

Ducky, that sounds really exciting, I'm sure you'd be amazing at it!

Aubergine 20-05-2018 11:58 PM

Because you all want to see a picture of me and the cat. For a limited time only... :P


Thanks Hannah! :D It's exciting. I should mention that the money is better in the NHS. 75% of the top band 4 pay in a lot of places, then band 4 once qualifying. I might actually be able to afford things! Like a car, once the DVLA let me drive. :wow:

nonperson 20-05-2018 11:58 PM

I don’t want to swap, just want someone to do it for me while I hide away. =P

Aubergine 20-05-2018 11:59 PM

Hiding is so tempting, Person!

nonperson 21-05-2018 12:01 AM

It is. =(

And yay, awesome picture! You both look so content. =D

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 12:03 AM

Such a cute picture Ducky!

Being able to afford things sounds nice. I would like that too :P

Sorry NP :(

I'm dreading going into work too, I have to see my line manager for the first time since I handed in my notice (she's been on annual leave) :(

Aubergine 21-05-2018 12:04 AM

He's been a proper cuddle monster today. <3 We were pretty content there. He's still asleep on my bed. I should be asleep IN my bed, but I feel all antsy, so I am not asleep in my bed. :wow:


What are you guys up to?

nonperson 21-05-2018 12:05 AM

Thanks for the offer though =)

Aubergine 21-05-2018 12:05 AM

That sounds tricky, Hannah. I think you've been really brave to hand your notice in. How long left?
