Morning Beckie how are you?

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 05:44 AM

I'm ok thanks. You?

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 05:47 AM

In pain and can't sleep. I have tesco this afternoon so I can't sleep all day.

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 06:06 AM

Before you ask I have taken meds for the pain just waiting for them to kick in now.

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 06:10 AM

Ah that sucks

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 06:27 AM

It does.

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 06:27 AM

Any plans for today Beckie?

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 07:33 AM

I have my contraceptive depot. That's about it!

How about you?

Zurg 15-01-2024 10:10 AM

Morning Dawn and Beckie :)
You guys were both early risers today.
It's bitterly cold outside and it has snowed….!!! Not enough to build an evil snow fortress but enough to make it all white and pretty.

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 10:19 AM

I'm always an early riser!

It's freezing here too!
But no snow

How are you doing?

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:07 AM

Morning guys. It looks cold here.

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 11:10 AM

Morning tamo
My weather app says -1 but feels like -6
It is very very cold!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:15 AM

I'm ok thanks. Waiting for them to put up the ward rounds list. And my friend R is visiting this morning :) how about you?

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 11:20 AM

Hopefully they put up the list soon. I always used to get anxious about it!
That's nice, have a good visit!

I'm ticking along. Trying to keep things under control.

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:24 AM

Look after yourself!

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 11:27 AM

I will try!

Zurg 15-01-2024 11:37 AM

My support worker came for the first time in nearly a month and he was here about 15 minutes and then his girlfriend called because she had slipped on the snow and needed him to Pick her up and take her to the gp….. staying inside sounds much safer than venturing out!!!
I'm rubbish but i have no idea what to do about it. So i just plod along.

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 11:38 AM

Sorry I fell back asleep. Would have been still asleep if it weren't for my cpn calling me. I had set my alarum clock.

The only plans I have for today is amazon and tesco. Oh and have a shower.

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 11:39 AM

Oh dear!
Staying inside certainly sounds like the best idea!

Sorry to hear that. We're about for distraction, as always!

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:40 AM

Hi Zurg, sorry about your support worker when you needed them.

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:41 AM

Hi insig. Good luck with your tasks. How was your cpn?

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 11:48 AM

I am seeing her tomorrow tamobhuuta. She just wanted to double check that it was ok to bring a student along. I said yes because 99% of the time it's ok and there's only so much they can learn being stuck behind a desk. I dont mind students.

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 11:51 AM

Oh ok, that's good. On this admission there haven't been any students in ward rounds which is unusual.

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 11:55 AM

That is unusual tamobhuuta.

long road 15-01-2024 12:08 PM

Morning everyone!

I am actually up and have made it to the sofa. Later than I wanted but 4 hours earlier than yesterday so will take it as a win. Feeling a bit fragile though.

Sorry your support worker disappeared so quickly Zurg that sucks. Hope you can get another appointment soon.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit with R Tamo

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 12:16 PM

Small wins are good jen!
Hope you start to feel better as the day goes on

long road 15-01-2024 12:22 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Now you have tried all your new coffee pods which do you think is the best?

one_step_closer 15-01-2024 12:29 PM

Morning everyone. Lots of chat today, I like it that way. :)

It has snowed a tiny bit here.

That's a shame your support worker had to leave, Kat. I hope you can find some safe ways to feel better. We are here for you.

Look after yourself, Beckie. We are here for you too.

Hope you get your deliveries ok, Dawn.

Good luck with your ward round, Tamo.

Well done, Jen. Good start to the day. I hope your day gets even better.

not_so_insig 15-01-2024 12:44 PM

I have had my receipt from tesco. 3 substitutions and 1 unavailable item. Am going to have to reject a substitution. The unavailable item was a Christmas present (it's probably not going to be available in December hence why I ordered it now) so I have plenty of time to get it before Christmas so no big deal.

long road 15-01-2024 01:05 PM

That is super organised Dawn!

Hi Lindsay!

I have managed to have breakfast and coffee so continuing on.

How are you today?

one_step_closer 15-01-2024 01:13 PM

How can you be thinking about Christmas already, Dawn?! Although I did get an advent calendar from Santoro while they are doing 50% off Christmas items.

Did you have something nice for your breakfast, Jen? You always seem to have healthy but tasty food.

I'm trying to be ok.

Ahimsa 15-01-2024 01:17 PM

Hi all,

I'm off work today (as a replacement day for working the upcoming weekend).

How is everyone?

one_step_closer 15-01-2024 01:19 PM

Hi, Beth. Nice to see you around.

Are you doing anything good with your day off?

long road 15-01-2024 01:22 PM

Pretty basic breakfast this morning Lindsay had the last of the peach and apricot special k that I got myself as a treat.

Trying to be ok is a good start Lindsay. Is there anything nice you could do for yourself to help with that?

Hello Beth! You must be enjoying seeing the sunlight!

one_step_closer 15-01-2024 01:23 PM

I've never tried that kind of Special K. Are the fruits chewy?

I feel like all I do is be nice to myself. I do things to keep me busy and entertained every day. I can't think of anything different to do.

Ahimsa 15-01-2024 01:25 PM

I am, I'm going to go out for a walk this afternoon but its -2 so need to wrap up cosy!!

one_step_closer 15-01-2024 01:26 PM

Where are you going walking? Like a park, a forest, a beach...Definitely make sure you wrap up.

Ahimsa 15-01-2024 01:29 PM

Definitely not a beach, my nearest is a 2 hour drive away!

I'll go around the big lake at the park I think.

What're you up to?

long road 15-01-2024 01:43 PM

They are freeze dried / dehydrated fruits so crunchy and then they go soft in the milk.

Would doing something like going for a walk be an option for you Lindsay?

Enjoy your walk Beth but make sure you have many layers!

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 01:44 PM

Hi everyone. I got some sad news from R. Someone from my prayer group has died. He was old but it's still a shock.

long road 15-01-2024 01:48 PM

Sending hugs if you would like them Tamo.

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 01:49 PM

Thanks lr.

long road 15-01-2024 02:16 PM

Just got dressed, did my sinus rinse and put some washing on. I am on a roll!

What is everyone else up to?

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 02:33 PM

Well done! I'm watching the news and eating satsumas.

Ahimsa 15-01-2024 02:34 PM

Sorry to hear your sad news Tamo :(

long road 15-01-2024 02:37 PM

Ooh I haven't had a satsuma in ages. Might have to buy some in next week's shop.

Is Doctors on after the news?

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 03:02 PM

Sorry for your loss tamo

tamobhuuta 15-01-2024 03:50 PM

Thanks for your sympathies.

Yes doctors was on!

long road 15-01-2024 04:23 PM

Was it a good episode Tamo?

I have been doing some drawing. Just little sketches of animals from photos.

Cacoethes 15-01-2024 04:27 PM

That's good jen

I've finally dyed my hair. Just a refresh
