what they need to do is bring back fun house

Cacoethes 24-04-2019 07:29 PM

Fun house was great

Buttons. 24-04-2019 07:38 PM

I'll press you in a minute Zombie!

Never seen tipping point, worth a watch? I still remember watching the weakest link on a telly with the aerial sat on top of the set that you had to move everynow and then to get a picture. My mate used to come round to watch Simpsons after Weakest Link and we used to take it in turns holding the aerial :P

Buttons. 24-04-2019 07:40 PM

Nowadays if my sky goes off for one second I lose my mind :P

Cacoethes 24-04-2019 07:46 PM

Haha!
Back in the old days!
We are so spoiled nowadays
If the page takes more than half a second to load I get frustrated!

Just spoken to the doctor because she happened to be in the office when I was asking the nurse if I could go home for the day tomorrow. She said yes! :-D

Stellata 24-04-2019 07:46 PM

Tipping point is definitely worth a watch.

I had those aerials all though my childhood! And a black and white TV for years!

Stellata 24-04-2019 07:46 PM

Brilliant news, Beckie. :)

not_so_insig 24-04-2019 07:54 PM

That's great Beckie! Does that mean you can watch your film that you have tickets for?

Buttons. 24-04-2019 08:01 PM

I'll have to download it then Katie.

Very pleased for ou Beckie-although is it really wise to release you into the community ;P

Very definitely spoiled now! E.g the speaker is broken on my smart phone so I bought a very cheap pay as you go phone until it is fixed and I can't function with it! I haven't even managed to get the sim in yet. But that extra cheap phone would have cost an arm and a leg when I was little! I still remember my first mobile phone when I was about 10 and being fascinated that an animated cat walked across the screen akin to a temagochi

Stellata 24-04-2019 08:10 PM

My 'back up' cheapo mobile is so frustrating! It doesn't have a space option and only types in capital letters!

Cacoethes 24-04-2019 08:19 PM

The film is on Friday so all going well (don't see why it wouldn't) I will be able to see it!

Shut up Buttons, I am the picture of sanity! :p

I would not be able to function without my smart phone. Especially in here!

Stellata 24-04-2019 08:20 PM

You're lucky they let you use it in there!

Buttons. 24-04-2019 08:25 PM

I know the feeling Katie!

And Beckie if you are sane I am the sanest person on earth-just something to think about :P

Yes I remember in psych unit I pissed the staff off so they took my smart phone away with all my books and stuff on it and I absolutely lost it. Don't think have ever shouted so much in my life. Came close to shouting today as a woman just wouldn't move a bloody inch to let me get past with wheelchair and after a couple of excuse mes, please can I get past I said to my support worker you know it would be really helpful if someone would move when asked politely and she stormed off (the woman not the support worker just to clarify!). I know I shouldn't have said it but I didn't lose my **** with her despite wanting to and it did make her move.

Cacoethes 24-04-2019 08:31 PM

I've been in a few units that didnt allow phones. But it was basically all I knew (was in hospital for a good couple of years) so I wasn't too bothered.
Wouldn't be able to cope now though!

I think you were perfectly within your rights to say that Buttons! You had asked nicely!

Buttons. 24-04-2019 08:49 PM

I wouldn't cope either Beckie. And these NHS ecig things now that smoking outside is banned nearly lost my **** and I was only there for one night :P also staff felt the same way they were like previously we could prevent a kick off by letting the person go outside (in an enclosed garden) have a cig and calm the hell down now we have a load of nicotine deprived mental patients to deal with :P

Buttons. 24-04-2019 08:51 PM

Also they were told when taking my property to put all my cigs and my vape in the bin despite fact I couldn;t get to them in the locked staffroom-luckily they didn't obey that rule because I would be suing for the money lost if they did that. Psych units are getting more and more like prisons. It's like you are mental there for every decision is going to be taken away from you whether it makes sense or not

Buttons. 24-04-2019 08:52 PM

Amd thankyou, my support worker said I was within my rights as well.

Cacoethes 24-04-2019 09:20 PM

The no smoking thing is a really f*cking stupid idea!
I used to get majorly stressed in hospital when I smoked
Made it so much worse!

Buttons. 25-04-2019 02:42 AM

Agreed!

Buttons. 25-04-2019 07:19 AM

Morning all :)

Eska 25-04-2019 07:59 AM

Morning Buttons, how's it going?

Buttons. 25-04-2019 08:23 AM

I'm surviving for what it's worth, how are you?

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 10:33 AM

Morning guys
We're nearly at 3000 pages!

tamobhuuta 25-04-2019 11:36 AM

Morning

not_so_insig 25-04-2019 12:05 PM

Morning all. It's forecast rain but it's not raining atm. Hopefully I will be able to do my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road later.

Eska 25-04-2019 12:15 PM

I'm ticking along.

It just tipped it down here so I hope it stays clear for you Dawn!

Are you having a relaxing day then, Buttons?

Morning Beckie! That is a lot of pages... and a lot of words...

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 12:46 PM

It was pouring down earlier before I left the ward
It's sunny now!
Lucky because I didn't want to fork out for a taxi to the station when I could walk it.

I've just been into primark because i had some time before the bus. Was looking for shoelaces but came out with no shoelaces but did get a game of thrones top, some very sparkly shoes (4!!!) And some of those lacy shoe liner things

not_so_insig 25-04-2019 01:46 PM

It's raining here so no walk around the park at the bottom of the road for me.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 02:05 PM

Just been to Asda and got some discount easter eggs!

tamobhuuta 25-04-2019 02:45 PM

Ooo yummy what flavour?

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 02:46 PM

Oreo, crunchie and unicorn smartie (a giant one!)

not_so_insig 25-04-2019 03:06 PM

That's good Beckie.

It's thundering here and raining so I didn't dare go for a walk around the park at the bottom of the road.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 03:09 PM

Don't blame you Dawn!

Lovely and sunny here!
It rained earlier though. A lot!
I think I can see some grey cloud approaching though so I must remember to take my umbrella just in case!

tamobhuuta 25-04-2019 03:28 PM

Great choice Cacoethes

It's windy here

one_step_closer 25-04-2019 03:29 PM

Beckie, why didn't you tell me before that Asda still has Easter eggs??? There are no Asdas really near me but I was in a town today that has an Asda. I feel so deprived!!! (It's ok I forgive you).

Sorry to not catch up with everything here, I'm so tired. Was at Matilda The Musical yesterday which was amazing.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 03:31 PM

Sorry lindsay!
If only I had known!

Sounds awesome!

one_step_closer 25-04-2019 03:40 PM

Just you keep a close eye on those Easter eggs you bought...

How long are you home for? Sorry I haven't read all the stuff I missed.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 03:57 PM

Haha! They are hidden in my house :p

I'm on my way back now
Spent more time travelling than I spent at home but still worth it!

Eska 25-04-2019 04:24 PM

I love Matilda the Musical!

I would also love some discount Easter eggs but I have none :(

Buttons. 25-04-2019 04:33 PM

*gives Eska an imaginary egg* Know not same as real thing but better than nothing :P

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 04:43 PM

Awww eska!
Some places should still have them!

Eska 25-04-2019 05:11 PM

Heh, true! I would swing by the shops tonight but we just had another downpour so I am wary! Instead I shall go home and be dry and comfy.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 05:16 PM

Good idea
Play it safe!

Eska 25-04-2019 05:18 PM

Also thank you Buttons *noms eggs*

Yeah. It's sunny now but I have a feeling it's out to trick me. Sneaky weather.

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 05:26 PM

It may well do!
Can never tell in this country

Its still sunny here but there are quite a lot of grey clouds about

Cacoethes 25-04-2019 06:31 PM

Managed to get back without it raining!
Got to put phone on charge now though
Boo

chinahorse 25-04-2019 06:41 PM

Evening guys :-)

one_step_closer 25-04-2019 06:48 PM

Pouring here. I kind of want to go out in it but I have a cat on my lap.

Hope your phone charges super quickly Beckie.

Hi Lillie, how are you doing?

Eska, I hope you're nice and dry and enjoying your imaginary egg.

Buttons, can I have one of your imaginary eggs too? Where are you getting them from?

chinahorse 25-04-2019 06:53 PM

It's sunny here!

I'm hungry but ok otherwise.

Buttons. 25-04-2019 07:00 PM

Bloody flaming nora am I going to have to everyone eggs :P

Do you have anything planned to eat Lillie? Glad you are okay otherwise.

Now down to serious matters do I watch Young Sheldon or new Big bang theory first when they've downloaded?
