Anyone up to much?

I'm going to have a quiet evening watching Netflix, which leaves me with having to decide what to watch.

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 09:07 PM

I love houmous. I've been known to eat just a tub of houmous on its own. And houmous and olive sandwiches! Yum!

That was my first and last cycle class. I genuinely thought i was gonna pass out. I wanted to quit after 10 mins but didn't want to draw attention to myself so I suffered through!
At the end when I got off the bike, my knees kept giving way and I couldn't walk properly!
I'm glad I tried it though!

Sketchy 20-03-2017 09:10 PM

That sounds like it was a lot of hard work. It's good that you tried it. What you up to now?

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 09:13 PM

I'm watching eastenders and then going to shower and have some soup!

What are you up to?

Sketchy 20-03-2017 09:15 PM

As always I'm deciding what to watch on Netflix. Ever since getting Netflix it has taken over my life! :)

Sketchy 20-03-2017 09:17 PM

I think I'll snack on hummus and crackers. Yum.

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 09:22 PM

Haha! There's a lot to choose from!

That sounds good! I'm going to have to get some houmous tomorrow!

Sketchy 20-03-2017 09:28 PM

Good plan.

I'm going fruit shopping tomorrow. I think I'll try go for a walk, since I didn't get a walk today.

chinahorse 20-03-2017 09:46 PM

All this talk of yummy foods is making me hungry!

Walk sounds like a good plan lorraine.

Wow that class sounded intense beckie!

I've had another bath today though for ages in this one in lavender due to fibro playing up. I smell nice now though I want to go to sleep oops.

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 09:51 PM

I think that class was created by Satan himself.

Lavender bath sounds lovely! Not too long until acceptable sleep time!

I've just had a shower now need to wait for my hair to dry. I really should invest in a hairdryer!

chinahorse 20-03-2017 09:53 PM

I'd just go to bed with wet hair but I'm a rebel like that!

Have to stay up for meds at 10. This place is so tiring though all I wanna do is sleep for 14 hours a day.

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 10:00 PM

I might have to! I just find it looks weird in the morning if I go to bed with it wet!

Ah that's annoying. I used to hate that in hospital! Would they give it to you earlier if you asked?

Aubergine 20-03-2017 10:07 PM

I'm forever going to bed with wet hair. Wake up looking like a scarecrow!

Also waiting for meds. Last night tonight.

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 10:22 PM

Haha! That's probably gonna be what I look like tomorrow because I dont think I'll be able.to stay up until it's dry. Tiireeddd!!!

Are you glad that it's your last night?

Aubergine 20-03-2017 10:24 PM

Very glad. I want some autonomy back. My own double bed. My hammock. Netflix...

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 10:29 PM

There's nothing quite like your own bed after you've been away for a while.
And a hammock sounds awesome! I wish I had a hammock!

Aubergine 20-03-2017 10:39 PM

My hammock is my favourite thing ever. Swinging in it is so, so relaxing. Great for mindfulness! I think they should be available on prescription!

Cacoethes 20-03-2017 10:39 PM

It sounds awesome!!!

I'm off to bed now. Night night all and sleep well! :)

Aubergine 20-03-2017 10:50 PM

Night night. :)

So agree!! I want a hammock! :P

Aubergine 21-03-2017 07:43 AM

*shares hammock*

Buttons. 21-03-2017 07:46 AM

*meditates in hammock*

How are you today lovely?

Aubergine 21-03-2017 07:54 AM


I'm OK. I should be going home from medical hospital today. So relieved. Only a few more hours to go.

How are you?

Buttons. 21-03-2017 08:03 AM

Good to hear you'll hopefully be getting out of hosp today-they can be such tedious places to be stuck in! Hope you're feeling better.

I'm okay just trying to figure out some practicalities and tidy away the evidence of my jam donut breakfast :P (tbf I have cereal every other day and the spare donut was staring at me ;p)

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:14 AM

The breakfast of champions!

How are you Lillie?

Aubergine 21-03-2017 09:18 AM

Jam doughnut for breakfast sounds excellent! I adore doughnuts! I spent six months making doughnuts in morrissons bakery. Worst job of my life and it put me off them for ages!

Aubergine 21-03-2017 09:18 AM

Hey Lillie!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:21 AM

Oh my gosh can imagine that'd put you off them.

Aubergine 21-03-2017 09:28 AM

It was horrendous. Me, millions of balls of dough, jam injectors and a massive fryer. For hours. I once forgot to put jam in some and a colleague bought them and complained. It was hot and smelly and dirty.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:43 AM


Anyone have plans today?

Aubergine 21-03-2017 10:09 AM

As soon as I leave the ward I'm going to sit in Costa downstairs. I'm going to drink a hot chocolate in a comfy seat and wait for my friend to picky me up. I might go for a walk later as the weather is beautiful. It's a lovely day to be going home.

How about you?

Buttons. 21-03-2017 10:16 AM

No wonder it put you off! Hot chocolate sounds nommy. Yeah I was pleasantly surprised by the weather as well, make sure you don't over do it though, maybe just a short walk after being in hosp.

Aubergine 21-03-2017 10:31 AM

Thank you. That's probably sensible. The beach is only five minutes from my flat, so I might just walk there and sit on the sea wall. Could take a flask of tea. :) Hospital does take it out of you, doesn't it? It's odd.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 11:30 AM

That sounds like a good plan, the beach in today's weather would be lovely.

I'm just off to get my foot redressed. Bit nervous as it's been a long time.

Aubergine 21-03-2017 11:40 AM

Might even walk barefoot on the sand. Haven't done that in a long time.

I know dressing changes can be scary. I really hope it goes well.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 12:21 PM

Morning guys!

I'm jealous of your breakfast Katy :p

Costa hot chocolate and walk on the beach sounds lovely!

I hope your dressing change goes ok Lillie.

not_so_insig 21-03-2017 12:35 PM

I once worked in a chicken factory. It took me a long while to eat chicken. Then when I did I had a KFC and there was string in the chicken. I had a free meal the next time I went to KFC.

I also worked in a pizza factory. Again you get sick to death of pizza. My ex's mother made us a meal once and it was pizza. I flat out refused to eat it and made my ex drive through macdonalds so that I could have something to eat.

I worked in another food factory but that made all sorts of different pre - prepared vegetables so I never saw enough of the same stuff to get sick of anything.

not_so_insig 21-03-2017 12:51 PM

Driving lesson in 10 minutes.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 12:59 PM

I don't think I could ever get sick of pizza!!
I love KFC but I'm a bit wary of eating chicken in general since I got very ill from undercooked chicken once!!

Have a good driving lesson!

Aubergine 21-03-2017 01:45 PM

Pizza is wonderful! Can understand you getting sick of it though! Good luck with the driving lesson. :)

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 01:55 PM

Hey aubergine!
How are you?

Aubergine 21-03-2017 02:00 PM

BEckington! How are you?

I'm OK thanks. Just waiting on pharmacy then I can go home. :)

not_so_insig 21-03-2017 02:23 PM

My driving instructor didn't turn up :-'(

Aubergine 21-03-2017 02:25 PM

Oh no. I'm sorry about that, Dawn.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 03:37 PM

Good afternoon all.

Aubergine 21-03-2017 03:56 PM

Hey Lorraine! How are you?

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 04:07 PM

Yay for going home aubergine!

That sucks dawn. You should complain!

I'm ok. Saw cc and just got back from asda.
Luckily she left around 2pm so I could go to asda at my usual time!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 04:26 PM

Dressing change was ok but I'm super icky now and stuffs.

Yay for big able to go before the school tush Beckington.

I agree you should complain dawn. You may get a freebie out of it!

Aubergine 21-03-2017 04:43 PM

Sorry you're icky, Lillie. *hug*

I'm free! Sat in Costa waiting for my friend to pick me up. Sat in the comfiest chair in the world.
