How’s everyone today? What have you all got planned for this gloomy Sunday?

Cpt_Stunning 04-02-2018 08:37 AM

I'm OK, not doing much today, just watching short films on YouTube, bought bacon, eggs, beans & bread this morning. & you?

Cpt_Stunning 04-02-2018 08:42 AM

Sunday's can be gloomy, I'd rather be at work tbh.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 08:58 AM

At work until 5. Just making my service user a bacon sandwich- making me hungry lol.

Cpt_Stunning 04-02-2018 09:04 AM

that's cool, I work Mon-Fri, volunteer work on Sat, Sun don't do much just eat, watch stuff on YouTube.

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:31 AM

Hello :)

You can go to work for me if you like? I have 0 want to go today. Rubbish staff in.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 09:37 AM

Haha, know the feeling Lillie! One of my colleagues has just called in sick and the other is going to be late so currently by myself.

That sounds a very busy week cpt_stunning!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:41 AM

Oh no! Does that mean you'll have to try and fin cover now? Surely they've left it late to call in? I'd have a hiss fit if one of my staff did that and all I do is co-run a milkshake bar.

Eska 04-02-2018 09:49 AM

I have a day off and it's sunny and I had nice dreams so I'm happy :)

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 09:53 AM

They called in 15 minutes after their shift was due to start. But to be fair he’s normally really good so can’t be that annoyed. Just means trying to cover his shift and also cover his work load and the other persons until they come in at 10.30. Luckily most of the service users are still asleep so not much to do!

What time are you working today?

Sounds like a good start to the day Eska :-)

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:59 AM

Oh my gosh! I'd give verbal warning for that minimum.
I'm working 11.30-5.30. Because for rea sons unknown the shop opensl half hour earlier and shuts half hour later than literally everywhere else in town.

Oh that's good eska :) got plans for the day?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:59 AM

Hello again.


My friend is popping in for coffee today. :)

Eska 04-02-2018 10:10 AM

Pomegranate, I hope your day goes ok and stays reasonably quiet for you.

Lillie, I hope work is manageable.

Aubergine, that sounds lovely. I hope you have a good time :)

I'm going to spend some time doing some drawing, I think, and maybe catch up on the rugby.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:14 AM

Drawing sounds good, Eska. What kind of things do you like to draw?

Eska 04-02-2018 10:21 AM

Mostly animals, mountains, nature stuff... I like doing t-shirt designs.

chinahorse 04-02-2018 10:30 AM

Eska's drawings are incredible!!

Hope you have a lovely catch up aubergine. :)

I should move off the sofa and get dressed and that. Shame I can't go to work in my pj's. Like I know I'm lucky cos I wear leggings and a tshirt but still.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:31 AM

Oh cool. DO you even get any of them printed onto t-shirts?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:32 AM

You can do it, Lillie!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 10:38 AM

But I want to watch the end of Houston animal rescue *pouts*

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:40 AM

Um. Have you got time? Can you get dressed at the same time as watching it?!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 10:42 AM

I can watch about 5 more minures cis I have to leave at like 5 past 11 latest. And I cant do both cos my living room is onto the street.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:45 AM

Hehe! Best not to do both then. Though I sometimes do if I make sure the curtains are closed, as my living room is onto the street too!

one_step_closer 04-02-2018 11:09 AM

Hope your day goes ok Lillie.

Hello everyone.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:20 AM

Have a good day Lillie!

Hi lindsey

What time are you having coffee Aubergine?

I wish I could draw Eska- have fun!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 11:40 AM

Hey Lindsay. How's it going?


I'm not sure yet. Some time after my friend finishes church. About 12:30, probably.


Mum just popped in. She made me promise not to resign!

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:44 AM

Ha, your Mum sounds very wise! Did you decide not to go to church this morning?

nonperson 04-02-2018 12:00 PM

Hullo all.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 12:15 PM

Hey Person! How are you?


Haha. Mum thinks she is wise too! She is coming out of her school tomorrow to take me to work to talk to my manager! To make sure I go. She's not going to come in with me, but thinks I'll find it easier to go back on Thursday if I've spoken to her. Doom.


No, I didn't. I was supposed to be doing kids church, but I feel really rough. Stupid cold.


How's your shift going, Emma?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 12:31 PM

Just opened a letter from my GP surgery. It's been sat unopened because I hate opening mail, but thought I really should. Apparently I have to have a medication review with the surgery's prescribing pharmacist before they'll issue any more. Just what I've always wanted! :wow:

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 12:40 PM

Hey guys

Thats a pain aubergine!
I hate opening mail too

Aubergine 04-02-2018 12:42 PM

Hey Beckie! How are you?

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 12:51 PM

Im ok thanks!
Sleepy!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 12:52 PM

How was sleep last night?

nonperson 04-02-2018 12:54 PM

Hi Aubergine. I'm glad your mum is going with you to see your manager. It's not doom! It's a good thing and will be much better to have a talk before you go back to work.

I'm really hungry... Gonna go out in a bit because I forgot to buy food for tonight and might buy some new blinds too. Got a random spurt of motivation. Saw my friend and her baby again this morning which is always nice and actually meant I had to get out of bed before 1pm...!

Hi Beckie. =)

Aubergine 04-02-2018 12:57 PM

Out of bed before 1pm? Hmm. Suspicious...


Glad you had a nice time with your friends and her baby. :) Blinds sound good! What kind?

nonperson 04-02-2018 01:03 PM

Yeah it is suspicious. I hear they call it "Sunday Morning"... Strange concept!

Just some wooden blinds. Got them downstairs but horrible curtains upstairs and I want to decorate my room so that'll be a start.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 01:08 PM

I slept really well!
Just been a busy week i suppose!

Hi nonperson!
Glad you had a nice time!
Motivation sounds good!

I need to go to asda but its pouring down!

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 01:14 PM

Hi all :-) it’s sleeting here!

Urgh, I don’t open mail lol. Nothing good ever comes in the post!

Work is slow and boring but that’s prob a good thing coz I’m not in a peopling mood today.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 01:31 PM

Hey Emma!

My mail just gets chucked on a chair until my CC comes and makes me open them all :tongue2:

Ah sometimes peopleing is hard.
Hope work goes ok!

nonperson 04-02-2018 01:32 PM

Hi Pomegranate. =)

Eek, I hope all this bad weather isn't making it's way to me when I go out. It was beautiful blue skies this morning but now getting a bit more grey...

My motivation needs direction! Got too many things I'm trying to do at once... Playing piano, getting lunch, using Dulux Visualiser app to plan paint colours and measuring up for some prints I want to order (making the different sizes available out of paper and hanging them on my wall to see which size I should get!)

Lunch first then I'm going out...

So scatty. Loaded the washing machine but didn't turn it on.

nonperson 04-02-2018 01:33 PM

I open my mail but then leave it in a big pile. Or.. actually it's several piles now...

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 01:37 PM

It has stopped raining now and skies are blue!
That's British weather for you!

Could you make a list nonperson?
Lists are good!!

nonperson 04-02-2018 01:55 PM

I love lists. I made half of one but then got distracted from it! I'll organise myself properly at some point. =P

I can actually see a bit of blue sky now so maybe the bad weather will pass me by.

nonperson 04-02-2018 02:01 PM

Anyway, heading out now. See you all later.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 02:03 PM

Mail is not fun. I rarely open mine. It usually get chucked in bin unopened. I should really shred it first, even if I shred it unopened. Someone will steal my identity one day... I don't get much mail. I have online bills for everything, online bank statements etc. This one I knew was from the GP because there was "X Surgery" peeking out of the clear window that your name and address shows through. Stupid post. Why people can't just email in this day and age...


My friend popped in for coffee. We're going to go on a retreat together. :) We're going to talk about it more over lunch on Tuesday. :)


How long until you finish, Emma?


Lists are good, Person! You can do it!

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 02:14 PM

Have fun non person.

I’ve got 3hrs left. Then my dad (awkward cos we’ve only been in touch since June) is picking me up again and dropping me to my friend’s house to pick up the cat.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 02:15 PM

Retreat sounds awesome Aubergine, what kind of retreat?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 02:29 PM

It's good that your Dad is picking you up. Might feel awkward, but it's better than having to travel too far on your own. I bet the cat has missed you. :)


It'll be a Christian retreat, but I'm not sure what kind. My friend has one in mind based on a book that she read recently. She's going to print off all of the information and bring that and the book with her when we go for lunch. :) I'm hoping something very chilled, where we can chat, pray, walk and sleep lots! We could both do with it, to be honest. :)

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 03:08 PM

Someone could steal my identity because I don't shred anything.
But I have such a poor credit rating and no money so they wouldn't be able to get any loans or credit cards!!
:tongue2:

Retreat sounds promising!!

Im just back from asda.
Had a cheeky choclate orange!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 03:28 PM

Yay! Chocolate orange!


See, my credit rating is fine! "Good" last time I checked. Oh well. Maybe I'll invest in a shredder or something. I'd ask Mum as she has one, but then she'd know I still didn't open my mail... :P
