I'm so glad that hospitals allow laptops and stuff.
When I was in the secure hospitals we weren't allowed any electronics apart from a tv. I really missed my phone those 2 years! I can't imagine being without it now!

Voldemort 25-11-2016 09:09 PM

I am so bloody grateful I'm allowed them!

Cacoethes 25-11-2016 09:14 PM

And hospitals tend to have wifi now which is awesome!
My phone automatically connects to anywhere under the trust. So all the hospitals in the trust and even the clozapine clinic where I go for my blood tests and that's not anywhere near a mh unit! I'm still not entirely sure why my wifi connects there.

Voldemort 25-11-2016 09:35 PM

Oh, they don't have wifi here, I'm tethering my phone.

Cacoethes 25-11-2016 09:47 PM

Ah ok. Yeah not all hospitals do but the ones around here do! And that's only a recent thing. I used to have to either tether my phone or use a dongle.

One more episode of criminal minds then I think I'll go to bed!
But I don't trust myself with the whole 'one more episode' thing!

Bit random but finally the conservatives have come up with a half decent concept according to have I got news for you: JAM (Just About Managing) thought this might apply just a little to some of us :P so from now on you aren't just managing you can just say I have JAM :P

Got to be a bit more chirpy-JAM is nommy :P

Buttons. 26-11-2016 05:52 AM

Also morning all :)

[Luna] 26-11-2016 09:12 AM

Good morning threadlings. What is everyone up to today?

Voldemort 26-11-2016 10:22 AM

Morning all.

Buttons. 26-11-2016 11:46 AM

I seem to (until Monday) have gained a dog 0.o Bit weird with it not being Pol (my/parents dog) but kind of fun-just need to remember to open/shut back door.

He is currently in a nest of my blanket :P Only interesting thing today really.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 01:14 PM

Hey guys!

I have to go to the shops later *groan*

Buttons. 26-11-2016 01:16 PM

^ hate that why couldn't we all just live on hand delivered baked beans :P

Sketchy 26-11-2016 01:18 PM

Afternoon all.

Looking after the dog will be fun.

I hate going to the shops too.

not_so_insig 26-11-2016 01:30 PM

I have my shopping delivered because I hate going shopping. Since the development of a new shopping centre about 5 years ago town has become like a doughnut. Everyone says town is a chore because you have to go to different part of town to get everything instead of being close to another. I don't know how the elderly cope. The only shop that used to attract people into town was bhs. Apart from when I went to the post office I can't remember when I last went into town.

Voldemort 26-11-2016 01:31 PM

I'm heading into town for some Christmas shopping today. Just waiting on Ritzi now.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 01:39 PM

That would be awesome katy!

I hate shopping but I can't afford online deliveries.
I have my old person shopping trolley which helps immensely but I still need to go to the shops most days.
It's not too bad really, we have a big asda in town, about a 10-15 min walk away.

Have fun shopping with Ritzi :)

HopeRises 26-11-2016 03:31 PM

Although I'm a 5 min walk from town and 10 min walk from supermarket I hate shopping. I used to love it but it's just way too busy and I hate walking back with bags.

Have fun Christmas shopping Amy.

Katy what breed of dog is he/she? I miss my dog. My parents are visiting for the afternoon tomorrow but it really isn't fair on him if he got brought up as well. Ill see him and my cats again in a few weeks.

MunchBox 26-11-2016 03:51 PM

*pokes head in thread*

At halls asda is 2 mins from me but I'm still reluctant to go as I hate shopping. I'll go when I have to, in other words, when I've run out of fags.

Also, hello everybody.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 04:22 PM

It was really busy in asda today. I get such bad road rage in supermarkets! Nearly took out several children with my trolley.

I wish I had a dog. I love dogs!

Hey Mary!! Nice to see you!
Yep, running out of fags is a good motivator!!

Buttons. 26-11-2016 05:34 PM

hello all :) also my local Asda is insane! well done both of you braving it

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 05:47 PM

Hey Katy!!

How's your day been?

Buttons. 26-11-2016 05:57 PM

Well I've gained a dog (until Monday) and simultaneously fell over a blanket and have ****ed up my shoulder/arm/both and because I have refused to go to A&E because of dog and also I hate it there so have on their advice made a sling...out of a pair of hippy trousers. Cos I'm hard core like that.

Sketchy 26-11-2016 06:06 PM

That's not good. I hope you are ok.

Buttons. 26-11-2016 06:08 PM

Hey at least I have a hippy sling and a lovely fluffy dog so not all bad :P

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 06:18 PM

Oh no! That's not good!

Hope the sling helps!

Buttons. 26-11-2016 06:21 PM

It's a pair of hippy trousers-how can it go wrong- duuuuuuuude :P

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 06:24 PM

Haha! Fair enough! :p

Buttons. 26-11-2016 06:26 PM

Anywho how is everyone else?

not_so_insig 26-11-2016 06:34 PM

I am ok Katy.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 07:02 PM

I'm good. Had a shower and watching avatar (until casualty comes on!)
Changed my bedding as well so it's going to be lovely when I go to bed! Fresh sheets are the best!

Voldemort 26-11-2016 07:12 PM

Hey all.

not_so_insig 26-11-2016 07:13 PM

Hi Voldy

Voldemort 26-11-2016 07:15 PM

Feel free to call me Amy, unless you prefer Voldy.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 07:17 PM

Hi there!

not_so_insig 26-11-2016 07:20 PM

Hi Amy. I didn't know your name before.

Voldemort 26-11-2016 07:25 PM

That's ok. How are you both?

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 07:34 PM

I'm good thanks! How are you? :)

Voldemort 26-11-2016 07:37 PM


I'm tired. Went into town today for a couple of hours and came back and passed out for an hour. Watching one tree hill now.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 07:39 PM

Did you have a good time? Shopping can be exhausting!

Voldemort 26-11-2016 08:03 PM

It was ok yeah. We got a lot of stuff for Ritzi for Christmas and not much else! I got a burger and chips for lunch though which was nice.

Bellatrix 26-11-2016 08:20 PM

Glad you had a good shopping spree my lord. I hope you bought me a muggle to play with!

I'm watching 'nothing to declare' because I have no life. The rats enjoy it though. They like to stare at the tv.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 08:22 PM

Burger and chips sounds good!! I love burgers.

I quite like nothing to declare! Bit of a guilty pleasure!

Voldemort 26-11-2016 08:26 PM

I sent a couple of mudbloods your way, dear!

Nothing to declare is good. I have to be in the right mood for it though.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 08:31 PM

And the other similar shows like border force and I'm sure there's more but can't remember them!
I used to watch them a lot when I wasn't sleeping

Voldemort 26-11-2016 08:32 PM

My dad likes them so I watch it at home sometimes when I'm over.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 08:33 PM

It's a good easy show to watch. Like you don't have to concentrate too hard on it

Voldemort 26-11-2016 08:46 PM

Yeah and some of the stuff that goes through is insane.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 08:58 PM

Yep! It can be quite entertaining!

It's almost casualty time :D

Voldemort 26-11-2016 09:00 PM

I'm watching the walking dead now. I'm a couple of weeks behind.

Cacoethes 26-11-2016 09:10 PM

I've only ever seen half an episode of the walking dead. It looked good but I HATE zombies! I can deal with pretty much any other horror thing like vampires and serial killers etc. But zombies are a huge nope!
I saw 28 days later like, 7 years ago and it still haunts me!

I've just eaten probably my body weight in satsumas. I love satsumas!
