Eska 22-08-2018 04:43 PM

Oh no, Beckie! Shiny new glasses sound good though!

I'm good! All change here. I had the occupational health assessment for my new job yesterday so hopefully all the ducks for that are now in a row and I will get a start date soon. Also planning to move in with the bf, we've found a flat and fingers crossed that will work out.

How about you, Beckie?

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 04:51 PM

The technology they use now is awesome!
They have a tablet that takes pics of your face and recommends a shape and style of glasses that would suit you! It works cos it picked a load of good ones and was difficult to decide. I picked ones I probably wouldn't have chosen if I was just randomly browsing.
Technology these days eh?!

Ooo exciting things!

I'm ok.
Just been to asda and now watching a film

not_so_insig 22-08-2018 04:55 PM

Got my meds. Had to wait ages for a bus so missed the bus home. Got a 20 min wait so am sitting on a bench.

Eska 22-08-2018 05:12 PM

Beckie that sounds pretty futuristic! I'm glad you found some you like! I haven't had my eyes checked in ages, I think my glasses are from 2014... Oops.

It is very exciting! I have been pinteresting lots of design and furniture ideas and everything.

I'm glad you got your meds, Dawn, and I hope your bus comes soon.

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 05:16 PM

Maybe time for an eye test then! :p

Sounds awesome!

20.mins isn't too bad.hopefully it will be on time!

not_so_insig 22-08-2018 06:24 PM

It was late but only by 3 minutes so not too bad. Home now and have pizza in oven.

one_step_closer 22-08-2018 07:26 PM

Beckie, I always feel sad that my eyes are letting me down but shiny new glasses is ok! Have you ever worn contacts? What film did you watch?

Eska, that is lots of good change! I can see you're taking your interior design very seriously!

I'm glad you're home and are going to have some pizza Dawn.

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 07:30 PM

I am looking forward to getting my new glasses!
I have worn contacts before but they are effort.
I watched Don't knock twice. It wasn't great!

I have been eyeing up the box of clotted cream fudge I bought for my mum. I must not eat it!!

You up to much lindsay?

one_step_closer 22-08-2018 07:42 PM

That's a horror film right? Did you watch it alone? If so you're brave!

Aww man, fudge is too tempting. I can't buy any sweet things for people in advance because I just eat them and then buy more to replace them.

I'm just on here and Fb with a snoozing cat on my lap as is usually the norm. Will be going offline soon to do some reading then watch 24 Hours In A&E.

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 07:45 PM

Yep its a horror film.
I don't seem to be getting scared by them lately which is weird because I'm ususally a total wimp!

I can't replace the fudge because i got it specially from Cornwall!
Plus its not great for slimming world!

Sounds like a good evening!

one_step_closer 22-08-2018 07:46 PM

Maybe you're becoming immune to them or just extra brave.

Better lock the fudge away I think!

Do you have much planned this evening?

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 07:53 PM


Yep the fudge shall remain hidden and untouched!

Nope nothing planned.
Just watching The Good Place on Netflix. Illusive brother recommended it. Its quite good!

nonperson 22-08-2018 09:30 PM

Somehow a Terry's Chocolate Orange found its way into my shopping basket.

Cacoethes 22-08-2018 09:31 PM

Ooo i love a chocolate orange!
Not had one in ages

nonperson 22-08-2018 09:36 PM

I know you love them. That's why I had to mention it. =P

I've not had one for ages either! They caught me by surprise though... I came out from one aisle and there was a massive stack of them on the corner that I just couldn't walk past until I picked one up.

chinahorse 23-08-2018 06:44 AM

Morning guys., hope you all have an okay day. <3

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 12:02 PM

Hope you have an ok day as well Lillie :)

not_so_insig 23-08-2018 02:09 PM

Afternoon all.

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 02:21 PM

Hey Dawn
How are you?

not_so_insig 23-08-2018 02:58 PM

I am ok thanks Beckie. Been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road.

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 03:23 PM

Thats good.

Im doing a bit of cleaning
And forgot to order my meds so done that now.
Means I'll be without meds (except clozapine) for a couple of days. Sure it'll be fine! Clozapine is the important one

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 04:33 PM

Hello, hello.

I hope your day is going alright Lillie.

Hope you enjoyed your walk Dawn. Maybe that will help you sleep a bit.

Beckie, maybe you should let someone know? I'm sure they could speed up the process especially for you. I take it you've decided it's cool enough for cleaning now?

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 04:39 PM

Hi Lindsay!
How are you?

I'll go to the pharmacy tomorrow and see if there's anything they can do.

not_so_insig 23-08-2018 04:52 PM

I hope that it will let me sleep as my sleep is terrible lately Lindsay.

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 06:33 PM

My mum finally text back!
She is so bad at replying lol!
I'm going to see Jasmine tomorrow which is good because I really miss her

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 06:58 PM

I'm glad you'll be seeing Jasmine tomorrow. :-) Will you have time to go to the pharmacy too?

Do you know what stops you from sleeping Dawn? I hope you can get back into a routine of good sleep.

I'm ok. Done far too much socialising today. Was at my supported gym group and then had to talk to someone on the bus home which is really not much but it's a lot for me!

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 07:15 PM

Yep I'll go before I get the bus :)

Well done for surviving Lindsay!
Socialising can be difficult

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 07:17 PM

Good plan. What might you get up to with Jasmine? What are your plans for tonight?

Thank you. Talking to the person on the bus has been the longest non-supported socialising I've done in a long time.

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 07:23 PM

Not sure
We ususally just see what happens!
Just watchng tv tonight.

That's really good!

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 07:30 PM

I hope you have a lovely day with Jasmine whatever you do. Is there much on TV tonight?

I actually feel quite pathetic because the bus journey is only about 15 minutes. My support worker was trying to help me avoid the talking to the person on the bus by telling the worker who runs the group how I was feeling but I don't think the group worker understood that I meant it's socialising one to one on the bus journey that is difficult for me. So her not understanding pushed me into the situation. I'll need to try and get used to it anyway.

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 07:41 PM

Thanks :)
I'm watching a series on Netflix

You're not pathetic at all!
I can understand that it's difficult

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 07:44 PM

Thank you.

How far through the series are you? Netflix are going to have ads at some point aren't they? Did you ever watch The Staircase?

I've been watching a bit of Scot Squad on YouTube but some of the episodes are missing which is sad. I don't usually watch comedy things but this is a Scottish police comedy show so I kind of get it for a change!

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 07:56 PM

I think it ends soon.
There are only 2 seasons
I heard about the ads thing. Tbh that's really going to ruin Netflix for me!
I have never watched the staircase.

That sounds interesting!
Sucks that some of the episodes are missing though. Hate it when that happens

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 07:59 PM

Can you usually find something you'd like to watch on Netflix? I usually only join when they offer a free trial and I get through everything I want to watch in that month so there's no point paying to continue membership.

You might enjoy The Staircase since you like crime things but it is a bit long winded.

I watched the last series of Scot Squad when it was on TV I think. They were filming for a new series this summer.

one_step_closer 23-08-2018 08:01 PM

I'm off to do some reading and TVing.

Hope you have a nice night Beckie and enjoy your day tomorrow.

Sending good wishes to anyone else who visits the thread when I'm gone. (That kind of sounds like I meant when I'm dead, but I didn't!)

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 08:04 PM

Yeah there are things on there that i watch
Plus my parents actually pay for it now since my payment got declined and they were leeching off my Netflix. Now I am leeching off their netflix! :p

See you later Lindsay!!

zombiehunter 23-08-2018 08:19 PM

I'm off work til ****ing Tuesday :-D

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 08:20 PM

What you got planned for your time off?

zombiehunter 23-08-2018 08:26 PM

well the past few weeks have been a bit hectic so a bit of chill time

it's payday tomorrow so i'm going to get god of war for my PS4 and olay the **** out of that and also watch more of season 4 of gotham on Netflix

oh and I need new trainers

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 08:32 PM

Sounds good!!

I've thought of watching Gotham.
What's it like?

zombiehunter 23-08-2018 08:35 PM

it's realy good

takes some liberties with characters and their origins but still a good show plus sean pertwee is a brilliant Alfred and the guy who plays bruce wayne is brilliant in it and so is the girl who plays Selina kyle

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 08:45 PM

I'll have to give it a go then!

zombiehunter 23-08-2018 08:48 PM

wekk the whole thing is on ****ing Netflix now :-D

Cacoethes 23-08-2018 08:50 PM

Going to need a new series to watch after this

It all started when my uncle died and then the voices started getting worse. But that's stopped now. I am slowly getting better sleep since I started setting my alarum clock.

I texted my friend and she suggested that I have a glass of wine before I go to sleep lol. I have had issues with alcohol in the past so I don't want to become reliant on alcohol so I don't think that I will try that method!

Cacoethes 24-08-2018 11:27 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 24-08-2018 04:11 PM

It's a long way from morning now...

Hi everyone.

Cacoethes 24-08-2018 04:40 PM

Hi Lindsay

Im just on bus 1/2 going home

nonperson 24-08-2018 06:03 PM

chinahorse 24-08-2018 06:11 PM
