Haha the sea is being so rude taking away the beach from you! :-P

I know it's so so hot here too. Which is lovely. But it can go away tonight please because working won't be fun otherwise.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 05:29 PM

Yes, it can clear tonight. I am also working tomorrow. The box I work in gets so hot! :'(

chinahorse 28-05-2018 05:35 PM

Can you get a fan for work?

I may have to go without long sleeves because the black trousers and nurse like top will boil me anyway!! I sit under a sky light which is some sort of torture I swear :-P

Buttons. 28-05-2018 05:41 PM

Ha ha long sleeves in this weather are a bitch, know the feeling :P The lightest cardigans are my best solution as a general rule.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 05:47 PM

We have four tower fans. They do not do much. We really need air con! That would be money though...

Under a skylight sounds awful. Short sleeves sound good if you're ok with it. I wear short sleeves at work and only one person commented. Admin staff that should really know better!

I sat on the wall and a bit wave came and now I am very wet! Have moved to the top of the ramp to dry off!

chinahorse 28-05-2018 05:58 PM

Ah see if I wear a car die all I get all day is you must be boiling take it off! Usually I really don't care and often wear short or 3/4 sleeves outside work and even in my last work I just wore the top
But this is a grown up proper job and I'm not in charge.

A bowl of ice under the fan works amazingly like aircon. May not be ok in your work though :/

Haha! At least it's warm enough to dry you off quickly.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 06:12 PM

I hope you feel ok to wear short sleeves if it's too hot, Lillie. I have a proper, grown up job where I have to tell doctors to stop being silly and it's fine. :)

I'd be shot by estates if I did that! I just ordered a rechargable clip on fan for my computer! It was 15, so not the cheapest, but I cannot do another summer like last year!

chinahorse 28-05-2018 06:26 PM

15 quid sounds like a small price to pay for how big a difference it will hopefully make.

I've just bought some breathable slip on trainer/ ballet shoes for work so I hope that helps my hips and knees. I should do some studying but it's difficult when the body is being such an idiot.

What're you all up to now?

Any drier aubergine?

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 06:38 PM

I think the sea wants you to be a mermaid Aubergine.

nonperson 28-05-2018 06:46 PM

Is it bad to have laughed out loud at the image of Aubergine being soaked by a wave? XD

I'm imagining a Shamu at Sea World sort of wave!

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 06:47 PM

Yes, NP. Yes it is.

We should have a virtual water fight.

nonperson 28-05-2018 06:50 PM

Oh well, I'm a bad person then! =D

I always wanted one of those Nerf Supersoakers when I was a child, they always looked so fun on the adverts!

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 06:52 PM

If I saw it happen in real life I may laugh though!

They did look fun. Water balloons were a little scary though I thought.

nonperson 28-05-2018 07:00 PM

My imagination is too good sometimes...

Yeah, never been a fan of water balloons - too wasteful and inaccurate!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 07:19 PM

Person! You are very mean!

nonperson 28-05-2018 07:21 PM

I know. =(

Aubergine 28-05-2018 07:27 PM

Hehe. :) I actually quite enjoyed it. :D

Oh my. I'm glad I'm not getting the train I got on the way here. It's just pulled up and is just as packed as it was this afternoon. Only a two coach train though, so I know to avoid it in future! My train should be a long train as it's going far, far away!

nonperson 28-05-2018 07:31 PM

I suppose people are still coming to the seaside for the evening as well.

Hopefully yours will be quiet.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 07:36 PM

Well, it's not super quiet, but I have a seat. :) There's a change of train at the next station and it's only a one coach train. How can the put on a one coach train from a tourist destination to an airport city on a bank holiday? Considering waiting for the next train. Won't get back until late, but I can't spend over an hour like a sardine.

chinahorse 28-05-2018 07:44 PM

Maybe see how busy the train is first?

The rubbish gwr are updating things and in the process making them more rubbish.

Can I has hugs? I'm feeling sorry for myself. Also should really buy a human thermometer.

nonperson 28-05-2018 07:45 PM

That does seem rather silly on a bank holiday! Might be worth waiting for the next one if you're in no particular rush to get back.

nonperson 28-05-2018 07:47 PM

*gives lots of hugs for Lillie* =(

Aubergine 28-05-2018 07:58 PM

It's very silly on a bank holiday. They squished most of the people from the two coach train (which was going out of service) onto the one coach train, plus the people who were waiting at this station to get on. I was an adult though and spoke to a lady in the platform and there is a super long london train going to the same station my connection is going to (in plenty of time), so I got on it and it's air conditioned and I've got two seats to myself. Phew.

Oh Lillie. :( *gentle hugs*

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 07:58 PM

I hope your journey home goes ok Aubergine.

*hugs Lillie* Needing anything else that we can provide?

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 07:59 PM

Great adulting Aubergine :thumbup:

chinahorse 28-05-2018 08:09 PM

Oh that was good thinking aubergine! And a much more comfortable journey.

Thank you for hugs guys. I mostly just need a pet on the head and someone to listen to moaning.

Who wants to go to work for me tomorrow? Or trade work? Open to offers :-P

Cacoethes 28-05-2018 08:16 PM

Hope your journey goes ok Aubergine!
Well done for sorting trains!

Massive hugs Lillie
Moan all you like!
We're here for you <3

Just got back from going out to dinner with another friend
Now chilling watching Eastenders with nanny!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 08:18 PM

I would trade, but I don't start until 2pm so I feel I would be getting a bum deal. :P

You moan away. Always here to listen. <3

Aubergine 28-05-2018 08:19 PM

You are a busy bea, beckie!

chinahorse 28-05-2018 08:23 PM

Darn. Mind mine sound /marginally/ cooler than yours. But I don't get the fun of shouting at baby doctors. I'll just have 8000 patients with sudden dental emergencies because the weather is nice and they don't want to look ***** in photos.

Ooo sounds nice beckie. You manage to avoid all the storms and flooding?

<3 you guys

chinahorse 28-05-2018 08:24 PM

Oh my goodness no. It's half term. There will be 8 million small humans at work all day. All week. Send help!

nonperson 28-05-2018 08:27 PM

Eek, at least it's only 4 days of work rather than 5? Remember you're in control and they have to do what you say!

Cacoethes 28-05-2018 08:31 PM

There hasn't been any storms or flooding here!
Just hot boiling sun!

Small humans are annoying

Aubergine 28-05-2018 08:34 PM

I wish it was just the baby doctors I had to shout at. The consultants are certainly not beyond massively screwing up. They like to shout back sometimes though. "I demand to talk to the pharmacist." Ok, go for it. So they do and get told exactly the same thing. I wouldn't be phoning them unless I was completely confident/had already run my issue by the very same pharmacist!

I will send reinforcements!

We're usually quieter in school holidays, which is great because we're two staff and a regular pharmacist down this week!

nonperson 28-05-2018 08:36 PM

Ah there's nothing like putting people in their place. =P

Aubergine 28-05-2018 08:40 PM

Hehe. One consultant demanded to speak to the chief pharmacist because I had asked him to write a controlled drug script legally. I took the phone through to her office and she made him march down to the pharmacy to change it. :D

nonperson 28-05-2018 08:42 PM


You're a force not to be messed with!

Cacoethes 28-05-2018 08:43 PM

Don't mess with aubergine!!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 08:50 PM

Haha! Only at work am I like that! Outside of work I am nowhere near as assertive/confident.

nonperson 28-05-2018 08:52 PM

Same. I'm a totally different person at work... =/

Aubergine 28-05-2018 09:02 PM

Perhaps it's because we know what we're doing at work, but struggle with knowing what we're doing when it comes to life...

nonperson 28-05-2018 09:22 PM

It is exactly that. Work has always been a safe place, of sorts.

zombiehunter 28-05-2018 09:24 PM

no delivery tomorrow so a wee extra day off work :-D

nonperson 28-05-2018 09:26 PM

Awesome. =D

Aubergine 28-05-2018 09:31 PM


I'm now home. Very sandy. Need to shower. Very tired. Don't want to.

nonperson 28-05-2018 09:33 PM

You don't want to get sand in your bed!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 09:38 PM

You're right. I don't. Effort!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 09:49 PM

Got up. Gave Alec some dreamies. Sat down again. :wow:

nonperson 28-05-2018 09:59 PM

There's no rush. =)

Aubergine 28-05-2018 10:16 PM

Did it.

Now drinking a beer that was in the fridge. The cat keeps trying to steal it. Does your cat like beer?
