I agree Lindsay
Ice is not good!
I remember I was walking up the road into work once and managed to get nearly to the door when I slipped on a huge patch of ice. Just as one of my colleagues was driving past me!
Very embarrassing. And painful!

nonperson 31-12-2020 02:44 PM

Why is falling over on ice always more painful (and embarrassing) than falling over normally?

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 02:53 PM

It totally is!

nonperson 31-12-2020 02:58 PM

But falling over while drunk is perfectly acceptable. o.O

I'm so cold I've made tea. x.x

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 03:01 PM

Yes it is! :p

Hopefully it warms you up np!

nonperson 31-12-2020 03:05 PM

I hope so. I think being out in the cold earlier this morning has meant it's got into my bones... as old people like to say. =P

Saying that, the cat is sitting on the radiator so it's not just me suffering!

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 03:09 PM

I know that feeling!

Haha! If only humans could sit on radiators

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 03:26 PM

I have a dilemma.
I found a dress I REALLY want but it's nearly 60 which I would usually NEVER spend on clothing! Because that's ridiculous.
But my nanny gave me 60 for Christmas. So would it be reasonable to buy it with my Christmas money or should I spend it on sensible things like bills and stuff?

nonperson 31-12-2020 03:31 PM

Hm, that is a tricky one.

Gift money shouldn't be spent on bills... so that means you should buy something nice with it (and you deserve nice stuff, of course).

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 03:41 PM

Thanks! That is true
I don't get much money to spend on myself usually so it would be nice to treat myself

one_step_closer 31-12-2020 03:53 PM

You definitely deserve a treat.

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 03:59 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

one_step_closer 31-12-2020 04:06 PM

What's the dress like?

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 04:12 PM

I posted a pic on my Facebook in the post asking the same question (I needed lots of opinions!)
I bough the dress :-D

nonperson 31-12-2020 04:19 PM

Yay =D

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 04:23 PM

I hope it doesn't take too long to arrive!
But I guess it will be a while because of new years.

nonperson 31-12-2020 04:28 PM

I dunno, it could maybe ship on Saturday? If not Monday and that's not long.

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 04:31 PM

True! The site said it's standard shipping

nonperson 31-12-2020 04:35 PM

Probably end of next week then hopefully! =)

I need to go back out into the cold and dark... ='(

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 04:40 PM

Hope so!

Oh no! :( Do you have to go out for long?

nonperson 31-12-2020 04:44 PM

No, should be done fairly quickly but still. It's always really creepy being at work on my own in the dark as well.

Going to have some motivational biscuits first. >.>

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 04:53 PM

Does sound very creepy!

Good plan!

one_step_closer 31-12-2020 06:03 PM

Motivational biscuits, you could have a business opportunity there NP!

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 06:21 PM

Motivational quotes on biscuits!

nonperson 31-12-2020 06:22 PM

I think the cleaners were there at the same time. They were setting off security lights while I hid in the shadows.

You could be right there, Lindsay! Could make a fortune with some clever advertising. =P

nonperson 31-12-2020 06:23 PM

Ooooooooh Beckie. =o

I was thinking more along the lines of loads of sugar but quotes work better. XD

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 06:57 PM

Could have loads of sugar AND quotes!

nonperson 31-12-2020 07:00 PM

This is like the improved version of fortune cookies.

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 07:42 PM


The day staff came up with a plan to surprise the night staff with party poppers 5 minutes into handover. We’ve just pulled it off! It was hilarious

tamobhuuta 31-12-2020 07:49 PM

That's brilliant!

nonperson 31-12-2020 07:55 PM

Haha, amazing =P

They roped you all in too?

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 08:04 PM

Most of the ward was in on it!

nonperson 31-12-2020 08:21 PM

Meanies. =)

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 08:55 PM

It was so funny!
The night staff found it funny too! Once they realised what was going on :p

nonperson 31-12-2020 09:10 PM

Yeah that moment of confusion is always fun. >.>

Good job you didn't accidentally get one of those batches of party poppers that don't pop.

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 09:12 PM

Haha! It was :p

Yeah that wouldn't have been as fun!

nonperson 31-12-2020 09:14 PM

Probably would have been a good giggle, although the joke would have been on you instead!

Cacoethes 31-12-2020 09:43 PM

Yep! Not as fun! :p

I'm going to bed now. Happy new year and all that rubbish! :)

nonperson 31-12-2020 11:57 PM

Happy new year rubbish to you too =)

I'm about to fall asleep so will see midnight then zonk out.

tamobhuuta 01-01-2021 10:48 AM

Happy new year everyone x

one_step_closer 01-01-2021 11:00 AM

Happy New Year Tamo, and everyone else. I hope this year brings you all good things.

Are you doing anything special today Tamo?

nonperson 01-01-2021 11:31 AM

No more 2020, let's all pretend it never happened and move on to better things.

How's everyone?

tamobhuuta 01-01-2021 11:55 AM

No, nothing special, what about you?
Hi np how are you?

nonperson 01-01-2021 12:12 PM

Cold and tired, the usual!

Cacoethes 01-01-2021 12:12 PM

Hey guys

nonperson 01-01-2021 12:14 PM

Howdy Beckie

Cacoethes 01-01-2021 12:22 PM


I did some more 3am shopping it seems. Snacks this time. I ordered jelly babies, peanut butter cups and fudge. Must have been hungry at the time!

tamobhuuta 01-01-2021 12:31 PM

I have such a sweet tooth, I would probably do the same.

Cacoethes 01-01-2021 12:33 PM

At least it's not completely useless stuff!

nonperson 01-01-2021 12:37 PM

Mmm fudge.
