Glad you like it, Buttons. :) Hope your grandma does too!

You're awesome, Buttons!

Buttons. 24-05-2018 09:57 PM

My grandma will love it I know.

(Don't steal my caps)

nonperson 25-05-2018 01:12 AM


(I dared!)

Serendipity. 25-05-2018 01:22 AM

Yay for spotless flat! :)

Hi everyone :)

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:22 AM


Why are you not asleep?

Why am I not asleep?!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:23 AM


Serendipity. 25-05-2018 01:24 AM

Ducky! How's it going?

nonperson 25-05-2018 01:26 AM

Hi Serendipity =)

Just popping back in to say goodnight.

And to run away quickly before I get told off for stealing caps. =P

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:27 AM

It's good thanks! Though it would be better if I was tired enough to sleep. It's been too long since I last got some shut eye. :'( :P

How are you? How was work? I have been thinking of you. <3

nonperson 25-05-2018 01:28 AM

Oh, I was way too slow there!

I was asleep and will be asleep again shortly... as long as I don't go on my phone when I get in to bed...

Goodnight. =)

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:28 AM

Night night, Person! :) ALL OF THE CAPS ARE MINE!

Serendipity. 25-05-2018 01:34 AM

Sleep well NP!

Ducky, I hope you get some sleep! Did I hear you say you were going to take a zopiclone tonight?

Thanks lovely, I'm okay. Work was hard work and we have two newbies but they're both lovely. My manager was fine with me - maybe she's glad I'm leaving!!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:40 AM

Not tonight because I have run out! I get seven a month, which is usually plenty, but I used them all stressing about my sister! Am due to get more, either tomorrow or Monday depending on how quickly the GP sureger sort my repeat out. Not that I'll need one tomorrow, because I'll be having midazolam and fentanyl for the camera thing I'm having, so I'll probably sleep quite well when I get home!

I'm glad you're OK. I'm glad the newbies are lovely, even though it was hard work. Haha, I'm sure she's not! It's good that she was fine with you though. :) How long do you have left now?

Serendipity. 25-05-2018 01:54 AM

Ahh okay. I hope you do sleep well tomorrow! Is there anything that would help you drop off tonight?

Three weeks! It's going so slowly!!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 02:12 AM

Ohhh. I will speed up time for you! :D Or, I'll try. I'm just not sure how to go about it... :P You're amazing to have stayed there throughout all of the crap. I'm really proud of you for sticking with it for a good while, but I'm even more proud of you for getting out! <3

I don't know! I do have some diazepam left, but I don't like taking if if I can help it. I'm not anxious, so I wouldn't be using it properly if I took it. I guess I'll sleep eventually. I really don't help myself. My sleep hygiene is shocking, but I just hate lying there waiting for sleep. It makes me stressed. So I hang around online until I'm almost asleep on my keyboard and then I go to sleep. I just don't seem to be getting to the almost exhausted stage at the moment. :plain:

Aubergine 25-05-2018 02:32 AM

And now I have the hiccups. :wow:

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 09:00 AM

Morning all. I am up early because I have a boiler check. They could come any time between now and 1 pm so I have to be up.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:03 AM

Morning Dawn!

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 09:13 AM

Hello Ducky.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:37 AM

How's it going?

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 09:43 AM

Apart from being tired I am ok. Just fed up of waiting and I have hours to go!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 09:51 AM

Morning guys

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:58 AM

Waiting is annoying, Dawn!

Hey Beckie! How are you?

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 10:04 AM

Hi Beckie.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 10:12 AM

Im ok thanks!
Just about to head off for my train

Hi dawn!

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 10:44 AM

The boiler man is here! Yay!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 10:50 AM

My train is delayed by an hour :plain:
Gonna miss my connection so will have to get a later train. Luckily I'm in no rush!
Considered going home for a bit because I live 7 mins walk away but it would be my luck that the trains would catch up with themselves as they sometimes do!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:50 AM

I hope you have a smooth journey, Beckie. And a lovely time away!

Hooray Dawn!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 10:55 AM

The journey is usually ok!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:59 AM

That's good! How long does it take you to get there?

I'm off to Newcastle at the end of June. Six hours! Only one change though. :)

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 11:03 AM

Usually just over 2 hours on trains.
But today it will be a train, a coach then another train so goodness knows how long it will take today!

That's a long journey!!
One change is ok though.
Hate multiple changes, they stress me out!

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 11:14 AM

The boiler man has finished. Would go to bed only my bedding is in the wash and I have no spare bedding (my mum has it because she irons it for me).

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 11:24 AM

You're lucky that you get your ironing done!
I don't think I own an iron
My mum used to get her ironing done

Aubergine 25-05-2018 11:37 AM

Multiple changes stress me out too! I get passenger assistance now. Too many meltdowns. :P

Glad the boiler man has finished, Dawn!

I don't own an iron either, Beckie! My Mum washes my bedding for me in the winter because otherwise I can't get it dry, but she doesn't iron it. She doesn't iron much. I iron nothing!

I just got my TMA back from my tutor. I only submitted the answers for two questions because the material was about things that I have to be careful about, and focussing so much on things and having to put pen to paper about it was too much. Chuffed though because out of 22 total marks, I got 21. :) With my other marks, it means I only need to get 18 marks on each TMA to get the 40% needed to be entered for the EMA. I will obviously try for more than that, but it does take the pressure off somewhat!

Serendipity. 25-05-2018 11:44 AM

That's great Ducky, well done! :D

Aubergine 25-05-2018 11:46 AM

Thanks Hannah!

How are you?

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 11:47 AM

Im on a coach now.
Just one more train after this!!
I've had passenger assistance before when it's busy.

I'm crap at ironing.
When i worked in the nursing home, the woman who did the laundry decided my uniform was too wrinkly so she ironed my tunic and trousers while I stood there in a pink fluffy dressing gown :p

That's fantastic aubergine!
Well done!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 12:02 PM

Hooray Beckie! Do you mind coaches? I am not a fan.

Haha! I bet you looked very fetching in the dressing gown. :P

Thanks! I wasn't going to submit anything at all, but I'm glad my tutor convinced me to put something in. She's very nice.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 12:38 PM

I don't mind coaches as long as I can sit by myself!
Although did have some anxiety about my bag being in the storage thing and not have it with me.
And I still managed to walk off without collecting it.
Luckily I realised before I got too far away :laugh:

I did indeed! Some colleagues walked past and were like, wtf?! Lol

Glad you have a nice tutor. Makes all the difference!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 12:46 PM

Oops! Glad you realised. :)

Yeah it does. :) this topic is COPD. Really interesting.

Getting nervous about this appointment later. I wish I'd been given a morning appointment. Three hours until Mum picks me up.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 12:48 PM

I did the COPD one!
Can't remember a thing though!

Hope it goes well.
Is your mum going to stay with you?

Aubergine 25-05-2018 12:56 PM

Cool! Did you enjoy it?

Nope. Just dropping me off and picking me up. I am a bit funny about people sitting in waiting rooms with me. Makes me feel worse! I'd rather wait on my own with my headphones on.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 01:15 PM

I did enjoy it!

That's fair enough.

Signal is patchy and my tablet won't play my films!
An hour to go and I am bored.
I should have been there by now.
Stupid delays!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:18 PM

Oh annoying. Delays are indeed stupid. I'll teleport to you and keep you entertained. :P

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 01:26 PM

That is much appreciated!!
Although if teleportation was a thing, I wouldn't be in this situation in the first place :p

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:29 PM

Oh yeah. Haha! :P

Where did the nice weather go?!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 01:36 PM

I know! Its quite chilly.
I've packed 3 different jackets because i dont know what the weather will be like!

Just looked at the post count.
I have over 10,000 posts in here.
Next is Lorraine with over 7000.
I practically live here.

Has anyone heard from Lorraine actually?
Not seen her about in a while.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:41 PM

You have three different jackets? I have a winter coat and a waterproof! Haha.

You do live here! We like having you around though. <3

I haven't seen her, no. I know Dawn sometimes texts her though.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 01:44 PM

I have more than that :p
Big winter coat, 2 identical hoodies, one light Desigual jacket and a very light cardigan!

Aww thanks! :)

Hope she's ok!
I think zombie sees her sometimes too.
