I'm watching greys anatomy!
Have taken meds so probs gonna be in bed in an hour or so. Hopefully anyway cos my sleep has been awful!
What are you gonna watch on Netflix Lorraine?

Serendipity. 26-03-2017 10:16 PM

I love greys anatomy! Hope you sleep well tonight Beckie!

What will you watch lorraine?

Sketchy 26-03-2017 10:17 PM

I don't know. Maybe doctor who. I don't have time to watch a film because I'll be going to sleep soon too.

Sorry your sleep has been awful. I know how frustrating that is. I hope you sleep well tonight.

Cacoethes 26-03-2017 10:22 PM

Doctor Who is a good choice!

Thanks guys! I have some sleeping pills if I really can't sleep. I still end up waking up at like 5am anyway though. Annoying!

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 12:21 PM

Morning everyone :)

How are we all this fine day?!
Well, not really a fine day because it's cold and grey but anyway..! It was supposed to be sunny today but it's not :(

chinahorse 27-03-2017 12:28 PM

It's sunny here!

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 12:30 PM

Lucky!! It's miserable here!

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 12:36 PM

I just got back from the vets with my mum's cat. He pee'd over everything when he was there, including me, so I currently smell of cat pee. Random fact for you all lol

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 12:36 PM

It's nice and sunny where I am :3

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 12:40 PM

That's not good bambi!!
Is he ok?

Gah! Why is everyone else getting sun?!

chinahorse 27-03-2017 12:40 PM

Ewww bambi thats gross!

I'm just currently trying not to fall back asleep before therapy.

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 12:45 PM

Yeah he's doing well, just had a bit of a scare with him yesterday.
I'd give you my sun if I could Cacoethes, I'm not going out today so I can't enjoy it

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 12:45 PM

Could you nap after therapy Lillie?

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 12:46 PM

I mean aside from going out to the vets just now lol you can have the rest of the days sun

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 12:47 PM

Taking a nap after therapy sounds like a good idea to me, give you time to rest and regroup.

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 01:06 PM

I am bored!

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 01:10 PM

Do you play any computer games Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 01:18 PM

I used to but my xbox broke :(
I used to play fable on my laptop but it's gotten really laggy.
I'm in a&e at the moment anyway so there is no cure for boredom here! I don't even have any games on my phone because there's not enough storage space :(

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 01:22 PM

Oh I hope you're okay! D: having no storage on your phone sucks. It's because of all the gumpf that comes with the phone. You should be able to uninstall it really but nope :/ I hope things go okay for you!

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 01:25 PM

Thanks! I feel fine now. I collapsed in a café and an ambulance was called and I have been advised to stay and see a doc. It's crazy busy in here! I wouldn't think that Monday morning would be so popular but it's busier than I've ever seen it!

Exactly! All that rubbish the phone has on it that you will never use but have to keep anyway for some reason!!

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 01:36 PM

Oh that sounds scary! I'm glad you're feeling better and are safe in hospital. I've never been in a hospital when it's been busy, but I'm usually in the nuerology area more than a&e

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 01:39 PM

Thanks :)
I've been moved to ambulatory care which is much quieter and more relaxing. And theres tea and sandwiches so yay!

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 01:52 PM

Oh sounds nice. A sandwich right now sounds awesome, I'm really hungry. I hope you can get home soon so you won't be bored anymore!

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 02:04 PM

Thanks!!
Are you going to have lunch soon?

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 02:07 PM

Maybe later. I'm going to do some gardening now to try and busy my mind a bit. I also have to clean out my hamster and snails so I might eat after that.

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 02:19 PM

That sounds good!
Do you have those giant snails?

chinahorse 27-03-2017 02:19 PM

Oh beckie hope you're ok.

No nap time I'm off to the burns unit. Booo.

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 02:34 PM

Thanks Lillie

Oh no! Hope it goes ok. You'll definitely sleep well tonight!

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 02:44 PM

Yeah giant African land snails, they're awesome.
I hope things go okay Chinahorse!

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 03:14 PM

A friend when I was a kid had them. They are pretty cool!

chinahorse 27-03-2017 03:53 PM

Oh gosh snails scare me!

It's gone well. I get to change my own dressings for a week now.

chinahorse 27-03-2017 03:53 PM

And I Get To Shower Every Day

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 04:09 PM

Yay that's great news Lillie!! You must be so pleased!!! :-D

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 04:50 PM

I hope that you are ok Beckie.

I know what you mean about the space thing. It also annoys me that whenever they release an update for a particular app that it takes up more memory on your mobile. I had to delete Candy Crush because of that reason (not that I played it much - last time I played it was when I was IP).

Some random kiddie keeps on whooping like a red Indian outside my block of flats. It's annoying because he doesn't live here because we have no kiddies in this block of flats.

Oh and Lorraine I have started the discrimination thread.

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 04:52 PM

Lillie that's great news.

Shy_Bambi 27-03-2017 04:55 PM

Oh kids can be so annoying sometimes. Especially because they have no concept of personal space. And yeah they're really loud and don't care about it. Worst is when you're stuck on a bus with one that keeps screaming
I'm glad things went okay Chinahorse!

Sketchy 27-03-2017 05:10 PM

Hi everyone.

Beckie I hope you are ok.

Dawn, I'll read your thread.

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 05:16 PM

Thankfully the kiddie has gone now. What also annoys me is when the kiddies have a rather loud tv programme or game going on a tablet on the next table. Have they never heard of headphones? I think that it's just lazy parenting to shove them in front of a tablet instead of teaching them to behave in public especially in front of the dinner table.

Sketchy 27-03-2017 05:25 PM

Noises from other people's tablets annoys me too.

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 05:34 PM

Especially as the chains provide a kiddie activity sheet for them to do. People don't necessarily think these days. If they provided headphones then I don't mind them having tablets. I just don't want to hear Peppa pig at the dinner table.

Sketchy 27-03-2017 05:41 PM

Yeh that is annoying.

What you up to Dawn? I'm in the coffee shop. It's nice and quiet in here because it's so sunny outside.

Cacoethes 27-03-2017 06:03 PM

I'm still in bloody hospital!
Although I did pop over to the hospital shop to get some coke and a crunchie and it was nice to stretch my legs for a bit!

[Luna] 27-03-2017 06:24 PM

Hey guys,

Sorry you are still in hospital Beckie <3 I hope the blood tests come back soon xx

chinahorse 27-03-2017 06:28 PM

Sorry you are still in hospital love hope you get the resuits back soon!

Buttons. 27-03-2017 06:32 PM

Sorry to hear you're still in hosp Beckie, can be so boring and frustrating, glad you got to the hosp shop though.

I agree Dawn re kids it can ruin an entire meal for me if there's constant loud noise from a table with kids at it, and even if the restaurant or wherever doesn't provide activities there's nothing stopping parents/carers from bringing some colouring books to occupy them until food comes.

I've finally managed to get a new lighter more easily foldable wheelchair *whoops* which should really help my independence on days when I can't use my usual walking aid, although I still can't master curbs -_- so for now still need someone with me but am on waiting list for wheelchair support so hopefully they can teach me.

[Luna] 27-03-2017 06:44 PM

That's great about getting a new chair, sorry it's so tough to adjust. I hope the support helps when you get it.

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 07:06 PM

I am just watching tv Lorraine.

I have ordered 2 dvds from amazon because I had another amazon voucher. Had to add 64p of my own money though.

[Luna] 27-03-2017 07:08 PM

What DVDs did you get?

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 07:20 PM

Pigeon Street and Paddington Bear. I loved Pigeon Street as a kiddie and I still remember the theme tune.

not_so_insig 27-03-2017 07:34 PM

I am watching yesterday's Countryfile. It was filmed in my part of the world.
