I am going to pass tonight. I love a good quiz question but just taken my strong pain meds and am covered in heat packs. Going to log off and try and get some rest.

Goodnight all x

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 10:33 PM

There is a garden but it has this hill scene thing stuck to the fence and it's like being in a penguin enclosure.

Its been a while since i had it but I don't think it has marshmallow. I think it's just the cookie dough and brownie.

I'm sure jenna would love some questions if she's still about!
I'm far too tired for my brain to function to such capacity. I don't know how you do it!

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 10:37 PM

*is summoned*
I shall maybe say no to quiz questions too, as to demand them when no one else is in a quizzy mood seems rude!

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 10:49 PM

Not rude!

Can someone teleport me an entire block of cheese please?

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 10:51 PM

I've just put a vegan banitsa in the oven which contains a whole block of vegan feta; any good?

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 11:11 PM

Is vegan feta as bad as vegan cheddar?

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 11:16 PM

Depends which brand of vegan cheddar but probably tbh :P

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 11:17 PM

Hmm. That's a tough one

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 11:22 PM

My parents have been and now I have the rest of the night to myself. I am going swimming tomorrow so probably won't be here until the afternoon.

long road 18-04-2023 11:35 PM

I have some regular cheddar but my teleporter is on the Fritz.

(Yes I should be trying to rest but can't settle yet)

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 11:39 PM

Darn it.

Same tbh.

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 11:39 PM

So it came out of the oven and I tried some and it was REALLY GOOD
But I am four or five years into veganing so my standards have settled to vegan levels in terms of what constitutes a good cheese product :P
Sending you sleepy vibes Jen!

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 11:40 PM

Oh, out-ninja’d! Sending sleepy vibes your way too Beckie!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 12:05 AM

Glad you enjoyed it!

That patient has started shouting and singing again.
I am definitely sleepy but probably won't happen now

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 11:00 AM

Good morning x

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 11:45 AM

How are you?

I had a dream about my guinea pigs.
Is it weird that i miss them more than i miss my human family? :ermm:

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 11:57 AM

To he fair you spend a lot of time with your piggies!

I am ok, it's my lil bro's 25th birthday today!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 11:58 AM

That is true!

Happy birthday to your bro!
Do you have anything planned with him?

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 12:47 PM

Birthday cake obviously. Then this evening out for drinks and dinner. Sorry, rubbing my freedom in your face!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 12:51 PM

Oooh that sounds lovely!

No don't worry about it! You're not rubbing it in my face at all. It's actually nice to be reminded that normal life is a thing.

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 01:00 PM

That's why I liked having visits so much as IP. Obviously the visit itself was lovely, and the coffee, but it was a reminder that there was a normal life waiting for me.

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 01:16 PM

Absolutely! It's always good to be reminded of real life
The ward can consume you sometimes

not_so_insig 19-04-2023 01:59 PM

Hello all. I have been swimming today.

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 02:22 PM

Laps or slides? I never go swimming, water is horrible!

one_step_closer 19-04-2023 02:56 PM

Hello everyone.

I hope you and your family enjoy your brother's birthday celebrations, Tamo!

Visits in hospital are good. But I still feel awkward around my brother. Is your friend going to make it to see you again, Beckie?

In the pool or outside, Dawn?

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 04:11 PM

Another work friend has offered to visit so she may come with her? She gave her a lift the first time. It's just about getting the same days off which is almost impossible!
I don't really feel awkward around people. Working in a pub has helped with that

not_so_insig 19-04-2023 04:58 PM

I went in an actual pool Lindsay. Sorry I fell asleep because I was tired before.

one_step_closer 19-04-2023 05:46 PM

I'm just generally awkward around my brother. I hope you do get some more nice visits, Beckie.

Are you feeling better after your sleep, Dawn? Is this you getting back to swimming now?

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 05:49 PM

My best friend who came last week is coming again on sunday.
I'm not used to getting so many visits and messages when IP. It's nice.

one_step_closer 19-04-2023 05:58 PM

That sounds good. You deserve lots of kind friends and messages.

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 06:03 PM

Thank you <3

Are you up to much this evening?

Pi.R^2 19-04-2023 08:33 PM

Evening gang! How’s life? So pleased you’re getting lots of visits to make hospital a little bit more manageable Beckie!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 08:38 PM

Thanks. It's a bit weird tbh. But nice!

How are you?

Pi.R^2 19-04-2023 08:58 PM

You are bubbly, interesting and kind - why wouldn't you have people wanting to visit you!

I am OK thank you. Just made a disappointing curry and have come over all dizzy and fuzzy so am having a Nice Sit Down with some hot chocolate and hoping it will pass.

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 09:11 PM

Awww thank you <3

Oh that's a shame!
Is the hot chocolate ok at least?

I'm hoping for hot chocolate tonight (we have galaxy now) but if the delivery is tomorrow they may not have any

Pi.R^2 19-04-2023 10:08 PM

Didn’t even finish the hot chocolate! K’s convinced me that I can take an early night so I’m about to sleep =D

Ooh, I hope you get a hot chocolate! Fingers crossed :)

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 10:13 PM

You should definitely have an early night!

Alas, i did not.

Ahimsa 19-04-2023 10:29 PM

I am sad about the lack of hot chocolates!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 10:32 PM

Me too!
I had a horlicks but it's not the same

Ahimsa 19-04-2023 10:35 PM

It's really not!

Cacoethes 19-04-2023 10:46 PM

At least the delivery is coming tomorrow
So hopefully there will be hot chocolate then

tamobhuuta 19-04-2023 11:56 PM

Sorry you didn't get hot chocolate. I just got back from a lovely evening out with family.

Ahimsa 20-04-2023 12:04 AM

I'm glad you had a lovely night Tamo, what were you doing?

I'm freezing, so I'm doing a hot water bottle to make my bed cosy for after my bath, and I've put my jammies on the radiator too

tamobhuuta 20-04-2023 12:10 AM

Cocktails and dinner for my brother's birthday :)

Jammies on radiator is a good trick.

Cacoethes 20-04-2023 09:48 AM

Morning everyone

Glad you had a nice time tamo

I finally got a good night's sleep!
The two other patients were drugged up to the eyeballs so were quiet

Ahimsa 20-04-2023 11:10 AM

Yay for sleep!

I'm so so tired :(

Cacoethes 20-04-2023 11:14 AM

I'm not surprised! You're always rushing about everywhere!

Ahimsa 20-04-2023 11:39 AM

I wanted to get stuff done before work though :( The washing up from a week ago, the vacuuming from a week ago!

All I've done us wash my hair and feed my neighbours cat while shes away. ( as well as mine!!)

Cacoethes 20-04-2023 11:43 AM

That's still some things!
Washing up and vacuuming can wait a bit longer.

tamobhuuta 20-04-2023 12:19 PM

Morning guys. I'm glad you got some sleep Cacoethes. Well done for doing stuff Ahimsa.
