wildly insane 01-02-2018 06:12 PM

sounds great :) my train is coming in, so gotta go, enjoy your evening!

chinahorse 01-02-2018 07:26 PM

I had a much needed nap. Feel a lot better now but just realised I'm in at 9 tomorrow not 11.30 :(

I want a cat!

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 07:40 PM

My cat is curled up on me again :-). You should get a cat.

Boo for early starts but yay for naps!

chinahorse 01-02-2018 07:46 PM

Nawh, what sort of cat do you have?

I'm waiting until I've been in my new flat 6 months then I will ask my landlord.

Aubergine 01-02-2018 07:48 PM

I want a cat too! I'm going to wait another six months until I've been here two years, and then ask. :) I hope your landlord says yes, Lillie! Cats are great!

chinahorse 01-02-2018 07:51 PM

My neighbour has one and another neighbour has a dog.

I hope your landlord says yes for you too aubergine!

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 08:20 PM

Mine is just a moggy cat but he’s so cuddly!

not_so_insig 01-02-2018 08:35 PM

Oh dear I have the fire brigade in my block of flats.

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 08:39 PM

Oh dear! Why? Any fit firemen?

chinahorse 01-02-2018 08:44 PM

Oh no! Hope everything is ok dawn!

What colour is he emma?

not_so_insig 01-02-2018 08:44 PM

There's a smell of smoke coming from one of the neighbours flat. It makes a change because usually the fire brigade go to the sheltered housing nearby.

Yes there's a fit fireman. Only seen two firemen though.

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 08:53 PM

Fit firemen are always good!

Won’t let me upload a new pic Lillie but there’s one a couple of pages back. He’s black and white :-)

Aubergine 01-02-2018 09:10 PM

I would like a cat right this instant! Is your cat an indoor cat, Emma?

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 09:13 PM

Yep :-)

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 09:14 PM

Although he sometimes comes to work with me and comes to my friends’ etc so he gets out a fair bit...just not ‘outdoors’ as such

Aubergine 01-02-2018 09:15 PM

Aww. A social butterfly!

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 09:47 PM

Yeah, he’s very sociable. Although he keeps scratching my CC which is a tad awkward ��

Aubergine 01-02-2018 10:12 PM

Oh dear! Even though it was her homework that means he's living with you? Poor show, Cat. Poor show.


How're you doing?


I'm in bed. I didn't want to get stuck again, so got into bed before that happened! I have my electric blanket on and it's glorious.

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 10:19 PM

That sounds like an epic plan Aubergine!

She brings him cat treats and everything but whenever she tries to pick him up he scratches her lol

Aubergine 01-02-2018 10:27 PM

Oh dear! Maybe he's just wary of mental health professionals. I know I am. :P


Did I say that I saw my psychiatrist at work today? I managed to stay hidden from him, but he was walking down the corridor of the hospital. Must have been his ward round day. See lots of ward staff around, the curse of working on the same grounds as the ward I used to frequent, but seeing the consultant just seemed more weird. You know when you've got your professional head on and then someone out of your personal like shows up? I was not amused. :P



Bed is nice. I think getting into bed around 10pm is good. I won't sleep yet, but being in bed is better than being on it! Manager has called in reinforcements at work tomorrow, so we shouldn't be completely overrun. It's all good.

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 10:47 PM

Oh yes! I know that feeling. I was once observing a MHAA and one of the doctors and the AmHP walked in and they had both sectioned me months earlier. Had to sit through the entire assessment with them. Was awkward as **** although to be fair I’m sure they weren’t bothered in the slightest! Still really throws you though!

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 10:48 PM

I’m glad your manager has called in reinforcements. Does it make you feel slightly better at work tomorrow? Bed at 10pm def sounds a good idea!

Sketchy 01-02-2018 10:49 PM

Hello all.

I’m just home after being out for my dad’s birthday with my dad, sister and uncle. I had one too many gin and tonics. Yum!

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 10:50 PM

Sounds epic Lorraine! How was it?

Sketchy 01-02-2018 10:52 PM

It was good. We met in a pub, then went to an Indian restaurant and then back to the pub. Glad to be home though. Very tired and filled with gin.

Aubergine 01-02-2018 10:56 PM

Hey Lorraine! Glad you had a nice time. Tipsy? Hopefully you'll sleep well.


Yeah, it does make me feel a bit better about work thanks. Fridays have been such a strain because we've either been one or two techs down the past few weeks and it's not enough staff to run the place effectively. The new full-time person starts on the 12th. I hope she's OK with it being so busy, as she's coming from quite a small community pharmacy. We are so, so different. Different SOPS, more flexibility with prescriptions, speaking more regularly to prescribers etc. We'll look after her, but I can see why it'd scare some people off.

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 10:56 PM

Filled with gin is always good! Really fancy an Indian now lol. Glad you had a good time x

Aubergine 01-02-2018 10:57 PM

What's your favourite to get from an indian, Lorraine?

not_so_insig 01-02-2018 10:58 PM

I am going to have some wine as soon as I have finished washing my dishes.

Sketchy 01-02-2018 10:58 PM

Thanks guys.

Yes, I’m a bit tipsy, so I’ll wish you both goodnight and go off to bed. Sweet dreams.

Sketchy 01-02-2018 10:58 PM

Hey Dawn.

My favourite is any paneer dish.

Aubergine 01-02-2018 10:59 PM

Hey Dawn. Wine sounds good.


I hate washing up.


Nighty night, Lorraine.

Sketchy 01-02-2018 11:01 PM

Goodnight everyone!!! :)

Aubergine 01-02-2018 11:03 PM

Sleep well. :)

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 11:08 PM

Sleep well Lorraine :-)

Aubergine 01-02-2018 11:12 PM

Emma, you give out medication! Would you like to go to work for me tomorrow? I'll pay you in mini gingerbread men...

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 11:36 PM

Urm....no you’re ok lol. Got my own 27hour shift over the weekend lol! Just one day to go and then you’re off for another five days :-)

Aubergine 01-02-2018 11:50 PM

Spoil sport! I guess you can be let off given your own shift coming up. I do not envy you that! Hope it goes well. :) Any sign of sleep?

Pomegranate 01-02-2018 11:56 PM

Haha! Nope! Really should try though. Going to get changed into pjs. What about you?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 12:08 AM

No, not really. I think I've got into that overtired stage. I'm looking up cats that need a home. :P Pyjamas sounds like a good plan. One step at a time and hopefully you'll get a decent sleep. I expect you could do with it.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 12:48 AM

Still not in pjs. Really need to get off my arse!

Aubergine 02-02-2018 12:59 AM

You can do it!

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 01:05 AM

Thanks, just got off my butt and taken meds and clonazepam. Half in pjs lol but still got day time jumper on. When are you going to bed?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 01:10 AM

Well done. :) Get the top half of your pyjamas on and into bed now, you think?


I'm in bed. Just antsy. Should have really taken something to help me to sleep at about 11pm, but I am stupid. :P

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 01:12 AM

You’re not stupid. Can you take some diazepam now?

Just going to have a cigarette and then will finish getting into pjs

Aubergine 02-02-2018 01:16 AM

Yeah, that might not be a bad idea. I really need to sleep at least a little tonight. My madness takes advantage of my tiredness! Drink, loo, diazepam and snuggle down, I think.

Sounds like a plan. We can do this.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 01:29 AM

Exactly, we got this! Have you had a drink and diazepam yet? Properly in pjs now :-)

Aubergine 02-02-2018 01:32 AM

Well done. :) All done and I'm back in bed. Time to sleep, hopefully. Night night. I hope you sleep well.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 01:34 AM

You too Aubergine :-)

indigorose 02-02-2018 02:07 AM

Making a happy playlist on my spotify that remind me of good times in life.
