My mum paid extra so that I could have it a few days early. I could have had it Thursday or Friday with free delivery but I have a cpn appointment on Thursday and my parents are going to a wedding on Friday. We didn't pay for fitting but paid for the old machine to be taken away. My dad is gonna fit it tomorrow.

It's more complicated than my current machine as it's WiFi controlled and has all sorts of programmes for different things. It has a quick wash which mine never worked from day one. The one that broke had a temperature dial and a start button and that's it. It supposedly plays a tune when it's finished so for the first couple of times I will be going what the hell is that noise lol.

nonperson 13-07-2021 09:18 PM

My tumble drier can be connected to the WiFi too. Never bothered to connect it up though, don't see the point! And you can probably turn off the noises.

not_so_insig 13-07-2021 09:27 PM

I think if tomorrow that I can get it to wash my clothes it'll be a challenge for me never mind anything complicated like turning off the tune. Fortunately I don't have too much washing atm.

nonperson 13-07-2021 09:43 PM

The pre-set programs make it easier! You'll get used to it..

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 10:28 AM

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 11:02 AM

I'm good thanks Dawn
How are you?

Hi tamo :)

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 11:58 AM

Hi Cacoethes.

Anyone got plans for today?

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 11:58 AM

I am nervous and excited about my delivery today. Other than that I am ok.

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 12:00 PM

Ninja post tamobhuuta!

I have my new washing machine coming today but that's about it.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 12:07 PM

I hope the delivery goes well Dawn!

I have my trial shift at Hollywood bowl today at 4pm!
And I have to go and pick up my smart trousers from Next at 1pm. Hopefully they fit!

How about you tamo?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 12:08 PM

How come you're excited and nervous?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 01:43 PM

I feel like a grown up, I have put my meds in my weekly box.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 03:03 PM

Well done tamo! :)

I've had some trouser stress but it's all sorted and I'm ready for my trial shift!
My train is at 3pm

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 04:04 PM

Good luck x

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 04:05 PM

Thank you :)

nonperson 14-07-2021 04:12 PM

Good luck with your shift today, Beckie! How long is it for?

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 04:31 PM

Thanks np!
It's for 2 hours
I'm early so I'm chilling at McDonald's with some sort of chilled raspberry ripple drink. It's nice!

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 04:34 PM

And its just given me major brain freeze!
Ouch!

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 04:53 PM

My machine is here. Just gotta wait for my dad to install it now which will be later. My female cat has already inspected it lol.

nonperson 14-07-2021 07:29 PM

Hehe, brain freeze.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 07:43 PM

Trial shift is done!
It was majorly full on and overwhelming and apparently that was a quiet day!
But it was good!
I'll find out whether I got the job tomorrow or Friday.
The manager said I came very highly recommended! Lol

nonperson 14-07-2021 07:46 PM

It's nice to be highly recommended. Glad it went well. Do you think it's something you'd enjoy/ get used to doing?

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 07:57 PM

It is!
Thanks :)
I think so! I definitely won't be bored!

nonperson 14-07-2021 08:05 PM

Fingers crossed then =)

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 08:11 PM

Yep!
I have another interview tomorrow for an 'optical consultant' at boots opticians which I think I would prefer so we shall see!

nonperson 14-07-2021 09:32 PM

It sounds quieter and less chaotic. Good to have options though!

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 09:38 PM

Definitely!
Yes it is!
It's closer as well. Just up at the retail park a 25 minute walk away rather than 20 minutes train.

nonperson 14-07-2021 10:26 PM

Hmm, that's definitely much more convenient.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 10:34 PM

Definitely!
And it would save me money on train fare!

nonperson 14-07-2021 10:45 PM

Well let's hope you get offered both jobs and have a choice =P

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 11:20 PM

Haha! We shall see!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 09:41 AM

Morning guys!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 12:05 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you? You're up early!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 12:16 PM

Hello!
I'm good thanks!
Yes I was. Don't know why!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 12:31 PM

I'm ok, just about to do some mindfulness. You?

one_step_closer 15-07-2021 12:42 PM

Morning everyone. Good luck with your interview Beckie. Are you feeling ok about it?

I'm rubbish at mindfulness, hope it is beneficial for you Tamo.

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 12:43 PM

Hello all. I didnt sleep very well last night. Am testing out my washing machine again.

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 12:48 PM

Hi osc, how are you? I find mindfulness hard, I do the most basic level.

Sorry you didn't sleep well insig. I hope the washing machine works.

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 12:51 PM

Thanks tamobhuuta. I have a cpn appointment which I am not looking forward to. It's not with my regular cpn.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 12:58 PM

Morning lindsay and dawn

I am also rubbish at mindfulness!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 01:00 PM

Insig, I hope the meeting goes OK.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 01:01 PM

Oh and lindsay, i am very nervous about my interview but hopefully it will be OK!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 01:09 PM

What's the job Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 01:13 PM

Optical consultant at boots opticians. I really really want this one!

nonperson 15-07-2021 06:34 PM

How did it go?

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 06:34 PM

I have finally managed to get my washing machine to connect to the WiFi. Now I havent got any washing to do though so can't set it from my phone.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 06:47 PM

It went ok thanks np!
He was rather late so it felt a bit rushed though.
But hopefully I'll find out if I can move onto the next stage soon!
