Haha! Sorry Katy, it was all Lanas fault!!
Well actually, Hannah was the one who lowered the tone a bit but Lana, as always, took it much further :p

I'm getting my washing picked up soon because I still have no washing machine. I kind of like having my washing done though because my towels come back so soft and fluffy and smelling nice!

Serendipity. 04-01-2017 12:00 PM

Haha, yay for nice towels! How are you today Beckie?

And yes, it was all Lana's fault!!

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 12:18 PM

I'm ok thanks. A bit tired though! Pain kept waking me up! Grrrrr!!
How are you?

Yep, when in doubt, blame the German!! :p

Serendipity. 04-01-2017 12:34 PM

Oh no, poor you! :(

I'm okay. Going to spend the day sorting my life out and tidying and organising all my things! Exciting stuff I know :P

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 12:37 PM

What a fun way to spend your unexpected day off!!
Unfortunately these things do need doing! I could do with doing some tidying myself.
A load of letters and stuff were on my armchair because that's where all my stuff goes but I had to clear it for when my cc comes. So all the letters that had been dumped on the chair are now dumped on the bookshelf.

I hope you manage to get to M&S today. Yummy food!!

Serendipity. 04-01-2017 01:44 PM

I know, it's thrilling! Lol, moving the mess around sounds like my kind of tidying :P When I was a kid and my mum told me to go and tidy my room she'd always have to remind me that shoving everything under the bed didn't count! I still do it haha.

I hope your appointment with your CC goes well!

I won't make it to M&S today, we don't have one here, so I'd need to go to a bigger town. I think if I get everything all sorted out today then tomorrow I shall reward myself with doing that!

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 02:27 PM

Haha!! I probably would shove everything under the bed if my bed wasn't at floor level!
I do have a cupboard in my room that all the **** goes in. And one under the stairs!

Thanks. It was fine. We mainly talked about game of thrones!

Sounds good! Good luck with all your cleaning and stuff! Hope you manage to get everything sorted!

I've just put greys anatomy on :)

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 03:34 PM

My letters live on the chair to till my cc comes and then its onto the floor. I need one of those posh letter holder things.

Greys anatomy is brill enjoy!!

Hope you manage some tidying Hannah!

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 03:43 PM

Hi amy!
Glad it's not just me who has 'the chair'!!
A letter holder would be useful! Although everything would probably still get put on the chair :p

I'm enjoying it so far!
What are you up to today Amy?

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 03:56 PM

I'm taking down decs, tidying, and really need to go tesco as I have all of 2 banana in after not going the other day oops.

You up to anything other than watching greys?

Buttons. 04-01-2017 03:59 PM

I love the idea of a letter holder but as others have said I'd still probably let all correspondence end in chaos :P

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 04:07 PM

I'm not up to anything really. Just waiting for my washing to come back. I baked some more brownies because the apricots needed to be used up. They are almost gone now :p

I still have letters I haven't even opened. I'm scared they are bills so of course the adult thing to do is completely ignore them and pretend they don't exist!

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 04:07 PM

I think I'd actually use one.

How are you bean?

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 04:09 PM

Open the letterrrrs! Worst they can say is you need to pay X bill which is what you already think they are. I'm sure your cc would be able to help with any debts.

Buttons. 04-01-2017 04:09 PM

Hope you enjoy your brownies :P) Know the feeling re worry about what mail contains, maybe try opening them with someone you trust present so they can help you cope with whatever the contents?

Right Ames that's your next Xmas present sorted-a letter holder :P

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 04:16 PM

I always open them at some point....just not feeling it right now!
I now have no brownies. I always regret eating them all because it means I won't have any left for later!

Got a call from the dentist and I've been referred to hospital to get my wisdom tooth removed under general anaesthetic. Fun times!
Don't know how I'll get home afterwards because I imagine I'll be a bit out of it and navigating buses would be difficult!

Buttons. 04-01-2017 04:25 PM

Ouch that sounds sucky Beckie, maybe the hospital will have some sort of transport scenario for these situations? Can't hurt to ask (especially if you lay it on a bit thick-vulnerable adult etc :P)

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 04:35 PM

Haha! It doesn't hurt to play the 'vulnerable adult' card once in a while :p
I'll make sure to ask!
Although apparently they say you need to be around someone for hours after the procedure and it's like...yeah..forever alone!!
They must have some sort of procedure for adults with no friends :p

tiptoes 04-01-2017 04:41 PM

Maybe they will let you count us as around someone!! If you have replied to something in 2 minutes will send in search and rescue!!

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 04:43 PM

Haha!! Sounds like a plan!

Nice to see you Sarah! How are you? :)

tiptoes 04-01-2017 04:46 PM

I'm good ta! I too am enjoying the company of Meredith and co! :)

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 04:50 PM

Good good!
I'm liking greys anatomy so far! I think this will be my new series to binge watch!

Buttons. 04-01-2017 04:51 PM

Ha ha this can become the rescue mission thread :P GO TEAM.

Buttons. 04-01-2017 04:52 PM

In other news though must confess never really got into Greys Anatomy must give it another try. I loved House etc so no reason I shouldn't like it.

Serendipity. 04-01-2017 04:54 PM

Try it again Katy, it's so good! Meredith annoys me so much though! :P

Buttons. 04-01-2017 04:55 PM

I will try it again sometime :)

tiptoes 04-01-2017 04:58 PM

Definitely! Primed and ready to jump into action at all times of the day and night!

I <3 Grey's Anatomy. It soothes my dark and twisty soul! It does suffer from oh-my-word-how-many-near-death/actual-death-experiences-can-one-group-of-people-go-through-itis though which can get a bit annoying.

Buttons. 04-01-2017 05:02 PM

Ha ha glad you like it so much.

Completely different type of programme but my latest binge watch is Modern Family-however like said about this Meridith person one character Gloria annoys the hell out of me in Modern family, just the character in general and her shrill voice pisses me off, which is a shame as the rest of the programme and characters I love-am always hoping for an episode where she's not so much in it.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 05:41 PM

There's always that one annoying person in a tv series!!

My washing isn't back yet. They close at 5:30 so there's still time! They must be quite busy after the Christmas period. Hopefully they'll turn up soon!

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 05:46 PM

I finally went to tescooo.

I have a forever drippy eye which is highly annoying. Feel sorry for me!

Hope they come soon Bex.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 05:51 PM

Yaaay for tesco!!!

Oh no! That does sound annoying!!

Thanks! If they don't come today then I'll have to get up early tomorrow morning to wait for them and id rather avoid getting up early because I am lazy :p

Buttons. 04-01-2017 05:55 PM

*sympathises over eyes and washing etc-cuddles*

Buttons. 04-01-2017 05:56 PM

Okay that sounds wrong :P

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 05:56 PM

Thank you my dear!
I need my washing as I have officially run out of socks!!

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 05:57 PM

How annoying that would be. But at least you would have clean clothes. Could you phone them to ask them when they are delivering?

Buttons. 04-01-2017 06:00 PM

House elves behind it, clearly.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 06:02 PM

I should get up early tomorrow anyway for my GPs phone call. It's probably best I'm not half asleep when I talk to her!
It's ok. They'll turn up when they turn up.
Yes, probably the house elves!! :p

I'm really craving salami and houmous

Buttons. 04-01-2017 06:07 PM

I haven't had houmous in tiiiiiiiiiiiime!

Tbh my cravings currently are more a decent home made stew :P atm

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 06:09 PM

Houmous is nommmmmmm!

Who free'd dobby?

Buttons. 04-01-2017 06:12 PM

Agreed definitely nom!!!

I free'd his cousin Deidre.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 06:12 PM

I haven't had it in ages either!
Might get some tomorrow!
Home made stew sounds really nice actually!

I didn't free Dobby. I need him!

Buttons. 04-01-2017 06:18 PM

I wish I had a Dobbie!

Trying to decide just how late a support worker has to be before I ring management and inquire, would normally leave it but head a bit bleugh.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 06:18 PM

How late is she?
You should call x

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 06:20 PM

I agree call them sweet!

Buttons. 04-01-2017 06:24 PM

It's some replacement for usual staff who has a cold. Supposed to be here at 5pm, don't know if overreacting.

I mean general people in the company know how freaked out I get with lateness (mainly out of concern for support staff, traffic etc) but obv someone who is filling in wouldn't know. But it's still 20

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 06:26 PM

You should call. If for no other reason than to put your mind at rest.
It is rush hour-ish so maybe traffic?

tiptoes 04-01-2017 06:26 PM

I would call them now, definitely if they aren't there by half past.

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 06:28 PM

You are struggling lovely, so please try and call. It's not an over reaction. Twenty minutes is plenty late already.

Cacoethes 04-01-2017 06:31 PM

Looks like I won't be getting my washing today! Darn it!

Wonderland. 04-01-2017 06:34 PM

Oh well, looks like you're gonna have to get up early tomorrow. Maybe have an early night?
