Hey everyone, I hope your days are going ok.

I knew none of the answers to the quiz questions. I'm terrible at general knowledge and repeatedly tell people they don't want me on their team but some don't listen.

I hope your ward round went ok, Beckie. I will check if you have R/Vd. I always come to this thread first and then more serious places. Unless there is a new thread in introductions then I go there first.

I hope you can get in touch with a GP, Tamo. Would a pharmacist be of any help? They could maybe get in touch with a GP for you. I hope you enjoy/enjoyed Doctors.

Have you found something to do yet, Dawn?

The last time I looked at my watch last night it was 5.30am and I didn't get to sleep for a long time after that. Annoying. Double annoying that I got up at 11.20am and it felt like it was too late to go to Tesco.

Cacoethes 17-04-2023 02:59 PM

I forgot introductions was a thing. Lol

Ward round was better than last week but still not good

That sounds frustrating lindsay!
I got up at 3am to open a window because i was boiling

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 03:06 PM

No I haven't Lindsay.

I stopped watching Doctors when Neighbours moved to Channel 5 which was over a decade ago. I feel as though I havent watched recently enough to get into it. But I am glad that you enjoy it tamobhuuta.

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 03:07 PM

(This is a reply to Beckie)

Do your eyes just not register the intro board and go straight to the boards you use the most? Poor new people not getting a welcome from you. Remember when we had that debate about what to call new people and if newbie was offensive? :laugh:

I'm sorry ward round wasn't good, but if it was better than the last one maybe they will keep getting better each time.

It's hard to get the perfect temperature in hospital.

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 03:08 PM

Ninja, Dawn! What are your options of things to do?

Cacoethes 17-04-2023 03:16 PM

Yeah pretty much!
Can we call them noobs? XD

I can only hope!

It is difficult!
Its been especially hot lately

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 03:18 PM

I might practice meditation because I am being hypersensitive to noise lately. Fortunately my block of flats is mostly quiet with no screaming babies during the day so I need something to relax me. So it might work.

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 03:18 PM

I don't think a pharmacist could help osc.

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 04:47 PM

My new shoes have been despatched! I hope that they arrive tomorrow.

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 04:52 PM

Ooo new shoes! Are they fancy?

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 05:01 PM

They are sparkly tamobhuuta. It's these ones


tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 05:03 PM

I likes.

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 05:05 PM

Don't go melting, Beckie. I'm not sure what we'd do with a Beckie puddle.

Did you do some meditation, Dawn? I hope you get your new shoes soon. New things are exciting!

Keep trying to get in touch with a GP, Tamo. Hopefully you'll get lucky soon and get to speak to someone or have an appointment.

Cacoethes 17-04-2023 05:10 PM

Put me in a fancy glass :-D

Some pretentious architects are walking around the ward. They are designing the new ward in B from what i can gather.

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 05:15 PM

If that is your wish! Although lets not get to that point, try and stay a nice temperature and a whole human being.

Have you got any ideas you can shout their way?

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 05:19 PM

It's warm here too. I've got my window open and I've taken my hoodie and oodie off.

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 05:20 PM

I don't think it's warm enough here for opening windows. It is warm-ish outside but I'm cold if I move from my spot on the couch.

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 05:32 PM

It's cool here. I am sitting here in my hoodie.

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 05:33 PM

Also 5500 pages!

Cacoethes 17-04-2023 05:44 PM

I have given them my feedback!
They had a patient participation person with them too.

My window is wide open.
I'm finally allowed back in my room

not_so_insig 17-04-2023 05:50 PM

It's no good I am having a coffee to warm me up. I am cold.

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 05:56 PM

I'm glad you're allowed in your room Cacoethes.

Enjoy your coffee insig!

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 06:06 PM

I hope you warm up soon, Dawn.

Good for you giving feedback, Beckie. And I'm glad you're allowed back in your room.

Ahimsa 17-04-2023 07:04 PM

Hey guys,

I went to town and got new towels and jammies and a jigsaw! I've got a banging headache now though and I need to work on my complaint email, ugh!

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 07:15 PM

Good haul! Not so good about the headache and stuff needing done. Will it take you long? Are you going to wear your new PJs tonight?

Ahimsa 17-04-2023 07:23 PM

I am, I'm going to go to Lidl soon and get snacks, and then have a bath and put my jammies on and make tea and do my jigsaw

How're you OSC?

one_step_closer 17-04-2023 07:29 PM

Sounds like a nice evening. What's your jigsaw like? I prefer the Ravensburger 3D jigsaws because they are easier.

I'm ok although I'm supposed to be reading right now but I can't focus on it. Will be going offline soon to watch a bit of TV then prepare for bed.

Pi.R^2 17-04-2023 07:59 PM

Greetings!! I have returned from The Workplace!

How are we this evening? Can’t believe you don’t watch Doctors Dawn, it’s an outstanding piece of television.

I echo Lindsay’s question about the jigsaw. I too am partial to a 3D jigsaw and usually get so obsessed that my spouse has to come looking for me in the spare room to check I haven’t died :P

long road 17-04-2023 08:18 PM

Good Evening to All.

I got a jigsaw for my birthday. I haven't tried doing it yet, haven't done one in years so my technique is rusty! It has Van Gogh's Sunflowers as the picture.

I remember doing a 3D jigsaw of tower bridge once.

Pi.R^2 17-04-2023 08:25 PM

K has a Van Gogh one too! But this one is of the Starry Night picture and I think it might prove A Bit Much and continue to stay in its box forever :P

How will you know if it's a bit much if you don't try it?

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 09:15 PM

My big sister thought something terrible had happened, turns out we'd unplugged the landline and hadn't been getting her calls!

Pi.R^2 17-04-2023 09:24 PM

Oh goodness!! She must have been so worried! Did she show up to check on you all?

Jen, because it looks tricky. Also we are still traumatised from the ‘purple lady’ jigsaw that took us over a year

Ahimsa 17-04-2023 09:32 PM


This is the jigsaw! I haven't started because I fell asleep.

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 09:33 PM

Fortunately she thought to WhatsApp us eventually.

Pi.R^2 17-04-2023 09:50 PM

That looks fun Beth! Naps are fun too though.
Ah, that’s good tamo!

tamobhuuta 17-04-2023 10:02 PM

The phone is now definitely plugged in.

And I am making my way to bed.

Pi.R^2 17-04-2023 10:18 PM

Oh man, bed. I’m so excited for my bed time!
Sleep well tamo

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 10:50 AM

Morning peeps

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 10:53 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 11:05 AM

Morning all. My new shoes are coming today. I have a busy day, have yodel, amazon, cpn and my parents visiting. Hopefully amazon and my cpn dont come at the same time as I have an age restricted item in my amazon order.

I am knackered because I woke up at around 3 am and it took me ages to get to sleep :angry: . Then not very long ago my cpn phoned and woke me up.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 11:12 AM

I'm tired. Someone was shouting all night/morning so i didn't get a lot of sleep.
And I've just woken up in a bad mood in general lol

How are you?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 11:54 AM

I'm ok. Another quiet day ahead.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 11:54 AM

Hi insig :)

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 11:56 AM

The washing machine is broken and it's my day today :plain:

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 12:15 PM

Oh noes Beckie!

I have my shiny new shoes :-D . So that's yodel out of the way just like everyone else to come. It will be like Clapham Junction here today. I feel physically unwell today :-( probably because I haven't had enough sleep.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 12:17 PM

What a pain Cacoethes.

I hope you feel better soon insig.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 12:27 PM

It is a pain

Can you rest in between deliveries dawn? Or do you have other things to do?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 01:01 PM

I think I will try a wordsearch. You all needed to know that.

one_step_closer 18-04-2023 01:33 PM

Hey everyone.

I hope all your deliveries and CPN and parents go ok, Dawn. I hope you have a good sleep tonight.

Oh no, Beckie. Not a good start to the day. I hope it improves.

Wordsearches are good :) what is/was the theme of the one you are/were doing Tamo?
