No cheese sandwiches for dinner :(

Cacoethes 28-01-2024 06:56 PM

That's a shame

one_step_closer 28-01-2024 06:56 PM

Do some companies support learners?

What did you have instead, Tamo?

Cacoethes 28-01-2024 07:03 PM

Today's one would accept me, with a 1000 deposit! Which obviously i do not have.
The other ones would need a joint person and no one would want to enter a joint finance agreement with me, and i absolutely would not expect anyone to!

one_step_closer 28-01-2024 07:13 PM

Why are people so against learners?!

Cacoethes 28-01-2024 07:14 PM

Apparently it's because there's no guarantee that the learner will get a full licence.
But as long as the money is being paid, why do they care??

one_step_closer 28-01-2024 07:16 PM

Stupid unfair peoples!

Cacoethes 28-01-2024 07:20 PM

Very much so!
I just want to driiiivvvee!!!
My test isn't until april
Might re add myself to the cancellation list

Carrot and coriander soup. It was ok.

Sorry you're finding it hard to get a car Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 28-01-2024 08:18 PM

Hopefully you'll get a cheese sandwich tomorrow tamo!

I'll get one eventually. It's just annoying!

tamobhuuta 28-01-2024 09:11 PM

Hopefully I'll be gone before before lunch - tomorrow is discharge day!

I mean, the word "decent" is a bit of a long shot really.

Also, if you've never had a hangover, then you've not been drinking properly.

Cacoethes 29-01-2024 05:38 AM

Morning everyone!
Happy discharge day tamo!

Well, entertaining then np!
Lordi was good that year though
Hard rock hallelujah

I threw up most of the alcohol on Saturday so that may explain that XD
Bloody spoons and their 2 for 12 and deals on shots!

Zurg 29-01-2024 09:34 AM

Morning Beckie :)
I feel quite prepared for my support worker coming in 20 minutes. Had a shower and did the dishes. This feels almost too easy. I'm sure something's up and the Universe will screw me over later….!!!

Cacoethes 29-01-2024 09:36 AM

Morning zurg

Hope it goes well with your support worker and that the universe doesn't screw you over!

not_so_insig 29-01-2024 10:42 AM

Morning all. I woke up early and am very bored.

tamobhuuta 29-01-2024 11:13 AM

Morning guys. How did it go Zurg? I've got my final ward rounds in about 20 minutes. Hopefully no surprises! How's everyone doing?

Zurg 29-01-2024 11:45 AM

It was okay. One thing can be crossed off today's list. Still no disasterous things have happened!!!
Soon you shall be free, Tamo :D

tamobhuuta 29-01-2024 12:12 PM

That's good. My ward rounds was ok. Mum called in and got stressed about how much meds they were giving me to take home. It takes three weeks to get meds from gp to pick up from pharmacy and they're only giving me two. So I've got to speak to my cpn and see if he can speak to the part time psych and get a prescription.

tamobhuuta 29-01-2024 12:22 PM

Spoke to cpn, he was very helpful.

one_step_closer 29-01-2024 01:02 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Yay for discharge, Tamo! I hope you settle quickly and do lots of nice things.

I'm glad it was ok with your support worker, Kat. I wish you a continued successful day.

Have you found something to occupy yourself with, Dawn? Is your TV still not working?

How are you, Beckie?

not_so_insig 29-01-2024 02:11 PM

Last time I checked there was no satellite signal :-( . I fell asleep for about an hour and I had a delivery. Am having a tesco delivery so checked the receipt once they emailed it to me. 3 substitutions and no unavailable items which is good. The substitutions are acceptable.

Cacoethes 29-01-2024 02:15 PM

Hey guys
Been all over the place this morning
How is everyone?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2024 02:34 PM

I am home :)

not_so_insig 29-01-2024 02:52 PM

Hooray tamobhuuta! Just in time for Doctors.

I have some good news. After a week of no TV I finally have a satellite signal! I just have to reprogram my scheduled recordings. I would celebrate by watching TV but I am waiting for the tesco man.

tamobhuuta 29-01-2024 04:49 PM

I did watch doctors. And i met the kitten, he is so cute! He tried to eat my ponytail and savage my hands. He also likes to jump out on you.

one_step_closer 29-01-2024 04:53 PM

I'm glad your TV is back now, Dawn. Hope you get your delivery ok.

Have you been up to anything, Beckie?

Aww cute kitten! They can be right menaces though!

Cacoethes 29-01-2024 04:56 PM

I have been doing stuff and things

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 29-01-2024 05:02 PM

I hope they were ok stuff and things.

I'm not good.

What's your ideal car you're looking for? One of my gym friends wanted a pale blue, small, automatic car and I thought she'd have to compromise but she found one just after she passed her test.

Cacoethes 29-01-2024 05:04 PM

Depends on your view of things XD

Just an automatic hatchback, between 1.2-1.6
I'll be totally fine getting finance after i pass my test, it's the provisional that's screwing me over atm!
I've signed back up to the test cancellation app, so hopefully I'll be able to get an earlier test than april

not_so_insig 29-01-2024 05:35 PM

Sorry I disappeared I was having a rest. Put nearly all my shopping away. Still haven't watched telly as there's nothing but crap on. Set my recordings up however and set the washing machine going.

Zurg 29-01-2024 06:19 PM

Yay for freedom, Tamo :D
I was downtown for a wee bit for a dermatologist appointment. There were people. It was claustrophobic!!!!
Glad to be home. Just had dinner.

one_step_closer 29-01-2024 06:58 PM

Fingers crossed, Beckie.

Well done, Dawn.

I'm glad you survived the people, Kat. What did you have for dinner?

Zurg 29-01-2024 07:55 PM

I had fries with chicken legs that was marinated with hot sauce. It was nice.

Findus just supervised me while i changed my bedding. I am unsure whether i was able to meet his bunny-ish standards or if i have been fired….

not_so_insig 29-01-2024 09:28 PM

Thanks Lindsay. I had pizza for tea. Only a plain margarita one but I didn't fancy complicated cooking.

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 02:32 AM

Morning everyone

not_so_insig 30-01-2024 04:15 AM

Gosh Beckie you are up early! Or are you like me and haven't gone to bed yet?

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 04:16 AM

Nope, up early!
I always get up around 4-5am, which is manageable. 1:30am takes the piss!

How are you?

not_so_insig 30-01-2024 04:18 AM

Apart from cold I am ok thanks.

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 04:22 AM


I'm ok too

not_so_insig 30-01-2024 04:26 AM

Any plans for today, other than what you have detailed in your r/v?

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 04:59 AM

Nah. Just cardiology appt and car stuff i think.
I'm gonna have to get to S (where the hospital is) 5 hours early because otherwise i won't be able to get a lift and there are literally no trains because of the strikes.
I don't have enough money for even one coffee, so it's not going to be a fun day for me! Plus it's a crappy town.
It'll be fine.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 30-01-2024 09:53 AM

Morning people who haven't actually slept! I'm up early to go to Mass at 10. Not sure I can do this every day.

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 09:55 AM

Morning tamo!
I hope you enjoy mass

long road 30-01-2024 09:56 AM


Hope appointment works out Beckie. Sorry you have to hang around waiting for hospital appointment for so long that really sucks. Have you got a thermos or anything you could take coffee in? Is there a park tos it in?

You are up early Tamo. Are you still on hospital time?

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 10:07 AM

Morning jen!
How are you?

I do not have a thermos unfortunately
No parks that aren't overrun with drug dealers. It's a shitty town!

long road 30-01-2024 10:22 AM

Not great. See my thread if you want details.

Pesky drug dealers! People should be able to enjoy parks! Sit in the library?

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 10:24 AM

Sorry to hear that
Hopefully gp can help

I don't fancy sitting in a library for 5 hours
I'm gonna see if my brother can lend me some money so i can cafe hop. See how long i can make very few coffees last XD
I also need money to get home tbh if bro can't take me home

long road 30-01-2024 10:29 AM

Being lent money does sound a better proposition, I was just thinking of the no money options! I hope you get to have lots of tasty coffee.

Cacoethes 30-01-2024 10:31 AM

Yeah i know, thanks :)
5 hours is a long time to go without drinks!
I hope so too!

You got any plans today?
