Cacoethes 06-04-2022 12:14 PM

I can't sit still long enough! Lol!
And I'm not a huge fan of that kind of stuff anyway. It irritates me!

jacobevans 06-04-2022 01:47 PM

Hello everyone!
I agree with cacoethes, can’t sit long enough to meditate. Off lately all I’ve been thinking about is of dark chocolate Easter eggs instead of doing anything productive. But, no regrets we all get to have our days right?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 02:18 PM

I've gone off Easter eggs for some reason. I used to eat loads way before Easter but I think I've had 2 a while ago and stopped.

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 04:18 PM

I love a good easter egg!
Maybe you overdid it? I know if i eat something loads i won't touch that thing again for ages!!!

one_step_closer 06-04-2022 06:09 PM

But that was a whole Easter ago I was eating them loads. I am trying to eat less snacks so it's not a problem anyway although talking about it is making me want one!

How is your day going Beckie?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 06:14 PM

Fair enough!
Haha! Same :p

So so bored!!!
I tried watching some things on YouTube that are like 3 mins per clip and i can't even focus on them!!!
Maybe i have adhd?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 09:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-04-2022 11:35 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 12:57 PM

I'm good thanks!
I had a decent ward round for a change!
1 hour escorted leave today then if that goes well 1 hour unescorted 3x a week then home leave for a week next Thursday!

How are you?

Zurg 07-04-2022 02:54 PM

Oh yay, Beckie!!! That is awesome news :D

I could easily devour an easter egg right now…. But that would require me going to the grocery store to buy one and i reaaaally can't be arsed with that!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 03:01 PM

Thank you!!! :-D

Ah yeah that's effort!
I may get an easter egg on my morrisons walk today!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 03:18 PM

Great news Beckie!

I have a craving for Minstrels but I'm also trying to avoid snacks as much as I can so I didn't get any. Now I'm sad.

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 03:51 PM

Thank you! :-D

I love minstrels!!!
Haven't had them in forever!

Zurg 07-04-2022 04:50 PM

Nooooo Linds!!!! Avoiding snacks is a type of self punishment that no one can condone!!!! I say give in to all your snack-ish desires!!!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 05:13 PM

I've been out and i got myself an easter egg!!!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:08 PM

I'm trying to be healthy Kat, don't encourage me!

What egg did you get Beckie?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:19 PM

I got a creme egg one!
I love creme eggs!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:23 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

I prefer the malteasers ones and the chocolate on the egg tastes really good too.

Zurg 07-04-2022 06:23 PM

Mmmmm… Easter eggs!!!! But still not enough cravings to go to the shop. It's raining too. And cold. And windy. Definetely too much effort!!!!

I hope you enjoy your creme egg, Beckie!!!

Linds, being healthy still allows for snacks in moderate amounts ;-)

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:25 PM

Moderate amounts! I think that's a lie!

That does sound like too much effort Kat. Maybe you can get one another day.

Zurg 07-04-2022 06:27 PM

To be brutally honest, i'm not really a sucker for chocolate. But crisps on the other hand….. and cake!!!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:34 PM

Oooh i could really go for some crisps right now!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:36 PM

Crisps and cake are good too. Do you have favourites Kat?

You're going be stuck with that craving now Beckie, until you can get some crisps!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:40 PM

I knoooow! D:

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:46 PM

It's a bit like having a song stuck in your head. Which has just reminded me of the avocado song. Great!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:54 PM

Haven't thought about that song in forever!

Zurg 07-04-2022 07:46 PM

An entire song about avocados???!!!?? How utterly fascinating!!!!

My favourite crisps are sour cream and onion. Favourite cake is carrot cake. Mmmmm…. I could eat some snacks now. Except i can't because i had a huge piece of lasagna for dinner and i'm still full :P

Beckie, go and and pester the staff until they provide some crisps!!!! That is not an unreasonable request. A craving for crisps is serious business

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 08:02 PM

Sour cream and chive is the best pringles flavour!
I'm currently craving salt and vinegar!!!
Carrot cake is also awesome! I don't think i have a favourite cake. All cakes are great!

Haha! I don't think they'd react too well to that because it's notes time!
I *could* order from morrisons but I'm trying not to spend anymore money!!

Zurg 07-04-2022 08:40 PM

Pah!!! Notes time!!!! It's clearly evening snack time and that should be respected and held in highest regard;-)

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 08:40 PM

It totally should!!!
But nurses really have the wrong priorities!

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 09:38 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 08-04-2022 11:51 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 12:07 PM


I am annoyed. The consultant hasn't written up my leave so i can't get to my covid booster appointment. Luckily they do walk ins until 2:30 so if the doctor gets her **** together by then i can still get it. Ugh!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 08-04-2022 12:13 PM

That's frustrating. I am ok, still got covid.

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 12:13 PM

It really is!

That sucks! Are you feeling ok with it?

tamobhuuta 08-04-2022 12:20 PM

Not too bad better than the first day.

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 12:24 PM

That's good!

not_so_insig 08-04-2022 07:14 PM

Did you have your jab Beckie?

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 07:18 PM

I did!
Doctor wrote up the leave eventually!

How are you Dawn?

not_so_insig 08-04-2022 08:00 PM

I am freezing but otherwise ok thanks Beckie.

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 08:05 PM

It is rather chilly outside! Although sunny.
I was very warm walking back from my vaccine though!

Zurg 08-04-2022 09:30 PM

It's been snowing here today. I am seriously not impressed with the progress of spring :-(

Glad you managed to get your jab Beckie!!! We should avoid the plague like it's the plague!!!!

Cacoethes 08-04-2022 09:54 PM

Thank you!
Yes we shall!

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 09:41 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 09-04-2022 10:13 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you this splendid saturday morning??

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 10:21 AM

I'm ok thank you!
Bit headachey and my arm hurts from where they jabbed me yesterday but other than that I'm good!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-04-2022 12:00 PM

Hi you guys. How are you Zurg?
Sorry about your arm Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 12:03 PM

Thanks tamo!
It's a bit better now I've had paracetamol!

How are you?

Zurg 09-04-2022 12:07 PM

I'd love some paracetamol right now. My stomach is in pain and i feel sick. But that's the normal state of me so quite often i just try to accept it and keep going.

How are you Tamo???
Do you guys have anything lined up for today??
