Oh Tamo you've just thrown another option into the mix!

I couldn't possibly eat all three, Lindsay! And that would also be like three times the effort and making one meal is effort enough. =P

tamobhuuta 18-11-2019 07:01 PM

I've not tried them, are they really bad?

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:02 PM

I can't tell the difference with the reduced sugar beans. They have just as much carbohydrate in them though so I'm not sure how that works.

I like the mixed beans better than just plain baked beans.

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:04 PM

I used to have Tesco reduced sugar beans but they tasted like water and I was so happy when I allowed myself to go back to their normal ones.

Are mixed beans in sauce a thing?

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:12 PM

A guest is looking at the staff Christmas message from 2009, so oooooold!


I miss all the teams and activity.

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:13 PM

Ew, watery beans. =/

And yup, they're called Heinz Mixed Beans! Very tasty.

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:14 PM

I'll need to put them on my shopping list. Although I sometimes don't like Heinz stuff, weirdly Tesco stuff tastes better to me.

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:14 PM

I was thinking about old members from another forum I was on earlier. =(

It is sad how quiet everywhere is now.

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:15 PM

I think Tesco do their own version, semi sure I've seen them before!

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:16 PM

Is TGL going strong? I'm never on there.

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:16 PM

They do! Tesco Mixed Baked Beans

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:17 PM

The forums are very quiet over there.

I win the most forum posts nearly every month, sadly.

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 07:18 PM

Reduced sugar beans are not nice

Do like the mixed beans though!

I sometimes miss how active the forums were
Had some good times back in the day!

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:18 PM

Will the beans be beside the normal baked beans or with all the tins of mixed beans, do you think?

one_step_closer 18-11-2019 07:19 PM

It's cold. *lights a safe fire in thread*

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:20 PM

Next to the normal baked beans, I think!

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:21 PM

*moves closer to the fire*

I need to go upstairs to do physio and it's going to be cold up there so I don't want to goooo.

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 07:30 PM

It is rather cold!
It's always cold in the lounge here

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:33 PM

Meant to be minus degrees overnight, brrr.

Communal areas in most places are usually boiling hot.

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 07:49 PM

I always get too hot at night and have my windows open

I know it's weird!

nonperson 18-11-2019 07:52 PM

Maybe they're trying to save money! >.>

chinahorse 18-11-2019 09:05 PM

I'm watching the 2nd hunger games film. Some of the acting is hilariously bad.

not_so_insig 18-11-2019 09:20 PM

Oh dear Lillie. I have heard Twilight isnt that great either. Idk myself as I havent seen either.

chinahorse 18-11-2019 09:52 PM

It's better than twilight. But both the book series are a billion times better.

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 10:17 PM

Hunger games is better than twilight
Although I have to admit, twilight is a guilty pleasure of mine!

nonperson 18-11-2019 10:42 PM

I like the Hunger Games films, should read the books some time.

Can't abide Twilight but I've never watched it so shouldn't really have an opinion!

I'm watching the Matrix. Forgot what a mind**** it is for me... >.<

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 10:50 PM

I was forced to watch twilight in a hospital. All the bedrooms were locked and the only other room was the lounge and they put all the twilight films on.
Otherwise I doubt I would have ever watched them!

I love the matrix.
Is a total mind **** though

nonperson 18-11-2019 11:00 PM

You're making it sound like you regret watching them. =P

Me too, haven't seen it for aaaaages. Don't think I should be watching it... =/

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 11:25 PM

I kind of do! :p
I am embarrassed that I enjoy them

Oh dear!

I've just googled what BM stands for in relation to diabetes as they always say to me that they are going to do my BM but never know what it stands for!
I am surprised at the answer. It's some german company that most commonly makes the blood sugar test stuff.

nonperson 18-11-2019 11:36 PM

I'm rather embarrassed to say that I thought it meant Blood Monitoring...!

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 11:40 PM

That would make sense though!
It's 'Boehringer Mannheim'

There are cats fighting outside and they are making some freaky noises!

nonperson 18-11-2019 11:49 PM

But it's bad to admit that in 24 years I've never asked or no one ever told me what it means! Shameful. XD

Fighting cats do make some awful noises.

Cacoethes 18-11-2019 11:55 PM

Haha! I guess so!
Well now you can tell people :p

They do! I hope they're ok

I should probably head off to sleep
Well, I've been trying for a few hours now!
But now taken a sleeping pill so hopefully it won't be too much longer!
Good night!

nonperson 19-11-2019 12:00 AM

I should go to bed as well.

Night night! Hope you can get to sleep soon.

chinahorse 19-11-2019 10:18 AM

Hope you both got some sleep!

Morning guys :-)

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 10:49 AM


chinahorse 19-11-2019 11:07 AM

Hey, how's things?

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 11:50 AM

Meh. Got ward round later.
Hoping to go home but doubt it will happen

How are you?

chinahorse 19-11-2019 11:56 AM

That's quite a big step, maybe asking for unescorted leave or something would be more achieveable?

I'm super nervous and anxious and keep retching. I forced myself to apply for a small part time job because I literally cant afford to live and I have an interview this afternoon. Currently would rather die than go.

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 12:02 PM

Yeah you're right
I really want to be able to go to my mum's on a Saturday like I normally do so might ask for that

Oh no that sounds so difficult
Good luck and I hope it goes ok

tamobhuuta 19-11-2019 12:11 PM

Good luck with ward rounds and job interviews. I'm hoping to have a PJ day.

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 12:20 PM

Thanks tamo

PJ day sounds good!

one_step_closer 19-11-2019 12:47 PM

I hope ward round goes ok Beckie.

Good luck with the interview Lillie, I hope whatever the outcome it's the right one for you.

I could not stay in my PJs all day but hope you enjoy it Tamo!

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 12:48 PM

Thanks lindsay
It's at 1pm but no doubt they will be late!

What are you up to today?

one_step_closer 19-11-2019 12:53 PM

They might surprise you and be early for a change!

I had a quick appointment with my key worker to sign some things and have been to Tesco to donate some gifts to their trolley for children for Christmas. Will have lunch then hoover but not sure what else I'll get up to.

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 01:50 PM

Very much doubt it!
Although my ward round is meant to be after the lunch break so unless they take a long lunch, they *should* be on time!

Awww that's so nice of you!
Whats for lunch?

not_so_insig 19-11-2019 01:52 PM

Afternoon all.

I have had 2 more postcards today. One is from the USA and one is from Taiwan.

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 02:01 PM

It's now past 1pm and I haven't been called in -.-

nonperson 19-11-2019 02:11 PM

Good luck with ward round and interview, Beckie and Lillie!

I'm having a difficult day... >.<

Cacoethes 19-11-2019 02:17 PM

Thanks np
Still waiting!

Oh no! Whats up?
