The Worst Witch 07-05-2020 12:37 PM

Morning guys

It feels really early because everyone except me is asleep. I don’t think it’ll last long though because as soon as I get up the cats will want fed.

one_step_closer 07-05-2020 01:33 PM

Lillie, I have a kind of strict routine, it's mostly the evenings when I can't focus on things which makes me frustrated etc. On some days I have more housework to do than others. Also, I am reading a book but it's quite hard going.

How are you doing?

I hope your boiler stays ok Dawn.

Has Doctors been on now Tamo?

Afternoon Alison, got to do what the cats demand of you!

tamobhuuta 07-05-2020 03:09 PM

I watched Doctors it was good. Now I'm going to have a cup of tea with some of the family.

chinahorse 07-05-2020 03:30 PM

Well done for trying to keep to the routine lindsay.

Yay for tea tamo.

I've had a rather epic nap.

tamobhuuta 07-05-2020 03:39 PM

That's nice china was it restful?

chinahorse 07-05-2020 03:44 PM

More restful than recently which is good.

tamobhuuta 07-05-2020 05:57 PM

That is good, I hope tonight is restful too.

I've put the dinner on :)

one_step_closer 07-05-2020 06:24 PM

What's for dinner?

tamobhuuta 07-05-2020 06:39 PM

Quorn chilli, it was really easy.

not_so_insig 07-05-2020 08:29 PM

I had sausages, couscous and roasted vegetables for my tea.

Ophiuchus 08-05-2020 04:28 AM

I so do not want to be awake right now -_-
But I've defragged my laptop and cleared some junk off of it, updated my e-books and now I'm re-downloading a game; so I feel like I've been vaguely productive.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 08:10 AM

Hope you managed some sleep lovely.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 10:15 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

nonperson 08-05-2020 10:39 AM

Morning Lindsay. How are you?

I dunno, but it's nice not to be at work today.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 10:56 AM

Its warm today I know that!

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 11:07 AM

Yep warm here today. How were your nights?

nonperson 08-05-2020 11:24 AM

Yup, very warm. I don't know whether to brave it and do some gardening.

My night was average, got a bit of a lie in though. How was yours?

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 11:40 AM

It wasn't great, I had to take PRN. Naps are good.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 11:41 AM

Mine was awful but oh well.

Yay for lie in np.

I want a garden to sit in. Darn this stupid you have to be exercising to be outside ****. Like as long as people are 2m apartwhats the problem?

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 11:51 AM

It's quite dull here, not sure how warm it is.

I'm not great but just spoke to my CPN so I'm grateful for that.

I slept ok.

Walking is exercise too Lillie.

nonperson 08-05-2020 11:54 AM

It's probably because the longer you are sat still in one place, the longer you are still potentially spreading germs into the surrounding area and it increases the chance of more people passing each other during that time. I see plenty of people sitting down part way through a walk or cycle here though.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 12:00 PM

Glad you could speak to your CPN.

I mostly just want to sit though.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 12:02 PM

Do you have steps at your door you could sit on? I've seen some people doing that. Or if you have a room where the sun is shining into then open your window wide and sit there?

not_so_insig 08-05-2020 12:08 PM

It's a bank holiday today. I am dead itchy for some reason I had to take an antihistamine.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 01:58 PM

Do you have allergies Dawn? Is it maybe related to your hay fever?

The Worst Witch 08-05-2020 03:04 PM

Afternoon guys

I’m tired today. I’ve lost my glasses so its very hard to study, but I am trying.

Cacoethes 08-05-2020 03:16 PM


We all got ice lollies from the ward today which helped momentarily

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 03:19 PM

Oo what flavour?

Cacoethes 08-05-2020 03:29 PM

It was one of those that was ice lolly on the outside but ice cream in the middle. Strawberry and vanilla
It was nice!

not_so_insig 08-05-2020 03:32 PM

I have an allergy to alcohol wipes and some alcohol based gels. I am also allergic to washing powder but I havent used any of them lately. I havent changed anything lately so that's not the cause.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 04:07 PM

Ooo ice lolly are epic.

I had a magnum ruby (as that's what the spar had) and it was okay but nothing amazing. The choice was so limited in there because of the hot weather.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 04:08 PM

The Ruby Kit Kats are yum.

I'd like to try the ruby Magnum.

chinahorse 08-05-2020 04:16 PM

The only right y product ive had that wasnt meh was the hot chocolate from costa.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 04:20 PM

Oh, that sounds interesting.

Cacoethes 08-05-2020 04:20 PM

I've not tried ruby anything!

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 04:25 PM

You'll need to try something before they all disappear. I don't think they sell ruby Kit Kats any more.

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 04:38 PM

Loving ruby hot chocolate

Cacoethes 08-05-2020 04:48 PM

How annoying!
I don't think I'll be able to try anything anytime soon
Even if I wasn't in hospital everything is still closed!

chinahorse 08-05-2020 04:48 PM

The solid chocolate seems like too subtle a taste?

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 05:38 PM

I miss hot chocolate with whipped cream, a flake and marshmallows.

one_step_closer 08-05-2020 06:18 PM

You all have such fancy hot chocolates.

tamobhuuta 08-05-2020 06:44 PM

Only on special occasions osc. We haven't even got instant atm.

Cacoethes 08-05-2020 10:44 PM

I can't drink hot chocolate from coffee shops. I'm not sure why but they make me feel weird!

Cacoethes 09-05-2020 07:24 AM

Ugh up at 7am today for some reason
Had a coffee and hoping to get back to sleep for a few hours!
The less of the day I have to deal with the better!

tamobhuuta 09-05-2020 10:19 AM

Hope you're sleeping Cacoethes!

I slept quite well, just had coffee.

one_step_closer 09-05-2020 10:48 AM

Coffee won't help you sleep!

Morning everyone.

nonperson 09-05-2020 11:25 AM

Morning people. How's everyone?

My house feels really warm already, it usually stays cool even when it's hot outside. =/

Cacoethes 09-05-2020 11:40 AM

Did get back to sleep!
Had some weird dreams. Can't remember them exactly but they were weird.

That's odd np! My house is the same
It's always hot in this place.
They don't turn the heating off!

nonperson 09-05-2020 11:56 AM

I think it just means it's going to be a super hot day.

Definitely don't need the heating on at the moment. I haven't used mine for weeks. Shouldn't the NHS be trying to save money at the moment? =)

Only one more day of hotness then it goes cool again tomorrow and next week.

Cacoethes 09-05-2020 12:09 PM

Apparently they never switch it off, just turn it down.
Imagine how much how they could save if they turned it off!
