I love lemsip!

Haha!! Well, it is a fluid! :p

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 10:43 PM

Ew! That's really weird Beckie, it's vile! :P


Cacoethes 27-12-2016 10:47 PM

Haha! Well, I have been known to be a bit odd at times :p

I'm off to bed now. It's been a tiring day! Well, tiring long weekend! I'm both physically and mentally exhausted!
Good night and sleep well everyone!
You should be getting to bed soon Hannah. Resting is good for colds!!

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 10:50 PM

Night Beckie, hope you sleep well!!

I am technically on my bed, which totally counts as resting!

not_so_insig 28-12-2016 12:21 AM

My mum has a cold so no doubt that I will get one too. It seems to be cold season.

Really???? I am SHOCKED.

Aww Hannah hope you feel better soon and got some sleep eventually.

Lorraine hope you have a fab time :)

insig I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed that you don't catch a cold!!

I'm all wrapped up in the lovely cardigan my grandma got me for Xmas, watching Modern Family (only on 3rd season so NOBODY RUIN ANY SURPRISES FOR ME!!) and intend to chillax until see my CPN at 4.

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 08:28 AM

Chillaxing sounds good Katy, yay for snuggly cardigan :) I hope it goes well with your CPN.

I need to get ready for work but effort.

Buttons. 28-12-2016 09:00 AM

I know that feeling work-wise-maybe try putting on some good tunes while getting ready, I always found that helped me, if only a little.

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 11:13 AM

That's what I did! I'm now at work and there's still nothing to do!

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 12:25 PM

Morning guys!!

Seems like everyone is getting colds! I probably have one on the way considering my whole family has one!!

Sounds like a good day Katy!
I'm going to have to go to asda. It's too cold to go out!
But the sooner I go out, the sooner I can get back to game of thrones! !

Buttons. 28-12-2016 03:21 PM

Game of thrones ftw!!!!!

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 03:46 PM

Yep!! I'm over halfway through season 5. I don't want it to end! I don't know what I'll do afterwards!!

How are you today Katy?

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 04:27 PM

Very quiet in here today!!

tiptoes 28-12-2016 04:36 PM

Hello Beckie,

how are you today?

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 04:53 PM

Hi Sarah!

I'm good thanks. Bit cold though!
How are you?

tiptoes 28-12-2016 04:55 PM

I prescribe more blankets!

I'm a bit low, I've been spending too much time around people. It is so draining.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 05:07 PM

I have fetched more blankets!
I feel a draft coming from somewhere but can't figure out where!!

Sorry to hear you're feeling low.
It definitely is draining being around people.
Will you have any time to recharge soon?

Sketchy 28-12-2016 05:07 PM

Hello everyone. I hope you don't get the cold Beckie. Tiptoes, it can be draining spending a lot of time with people. I hope you can have a relaxing day.

I'm having a lazy day in the flat.

tiptoes 28-12-2016 05:12 PM

A lazy day sounds good Sketchy! What does a lazy day look like to you?

I have a people-free weekend planned if no one decides to ruin these plans before then! I'm also tired as the only time I get any peace is in the earlier hours so I've not been going to sleep till 3/4 am cos I'm clever like that!

What are you up to Beckie?

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 05:12 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

How are you? Lazy days are brilliant!

Fingers crossed you get a people free weekend Sarah! Being social all the time is exhausting!

I'm just watching game of thrones, trying to figure out where this draft is coming from and applying for job after job!!

Sketchy 28-12-2016 05:18 PM

A lazy day is not having to leave the flat. I'm just sitting in my room but might go to the living room later to watch some tv. To be honest I'm in hide away mode which isn't always a good thing, but I have a busy day tomorrow, so today I'll just be lazy.

Good luck with the job application Beckie. I hope you get somewhere soon.

I hope your people-free weekend goes well.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 05:27 PM

Would be good if you could try and get to the living room Lorraine. But don't push yourself too much. It's ok to have days like that.

Thanks. I really really want a job!
But the only thing I have any experience in is care work and my criminal record is a huge barrier. If I could get the chance to explain that I did those things 2 years ago and when I was very unwell, then I might have a chance.

Sketchy 28-12-2016 05:30 PM

That must be frustrating but hopefully people will understand.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 05:39 PM


I was working at the time I committed the offenses and management were very understanding. But that was probably because they couldn't afford to lose any more staff!

Sketchy 28-12-2016 05:43 PM

Keep applying and something will come up. I hope you get something good soon.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 05:44 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)
I'm not going to give up!

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 06:55 PM

Beckie would you consider applying for the same place you used to work or the same company as they might be more understanding since they know the circumstances? Or even if you're just applying for other types of work make sure you make the most of all the transferable skills that care work gives you!

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 07:19 PM

I've thought about it but I can't find any vacancies for them. And tbh even though they were very understanding of my illnesses and criminal record, they weren't the best people to work for. And the commute was a nightmare! Would be even more so now they've cut the bus service I used to use!
I'm pretty much applying for everything! It would be so much easier if I could drive but even when I pass my test, I need a car to get a job and a job to get a car!

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 07:42 PM

Yeah, I think I used to work for the same company and they were ****!

I shall keep my fingers crossed that something will come along for you soon!

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 07:46 PM

Yep!! I've only ever heard bad things about that company. Colleagues were lovely, we did our best and I loved my residents but management and above couldn't give a **** about us our working conditions!

Thanks :)
Something has to come along soon!

How are you this evening Hannah?

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 07:50 PM

Yeah, both care homes I worked in were **** like that! I'm SO glad I switched to support work, would definitely recommend the change to anyone! Company I work for now has its difficulties but it's SO much better!

I'm good thanks, I should really be getting ready to go out but I keep getting distracted by RYL :P What are you up to?

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 07:58 PM

Support work does sound a lot better!

Haha! Off anywhere nice?
I'm just watching game of thrones as per usual!
On the last season now though :(

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 08:30 PM

Music in a posh bar!!

Haha, what will you watch next?! I'm currently watching loads of horror movies which is odd because I usually hate them! :P

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 08:37 PM

Oooo nice! Have fun!

I have no idea! I'll probably find a new series on Netflix or something.
I can't stand horror films! I live alone in a very very quiet area so they freak me out so much!

Serendipity. 28-12-2016 08:41 PM

If you find a good series that isn't too violent let me know!!

Haha, I usually hate them, I get really freaked out. But now I'm like I have no fear, come at me horror films! :P

Wonderland. 28-12-2016 08:41 PM

Sounds lovely Hannah, have a nice time!

I'm watching Harry Potter.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 08:45 PM

Will do!!! I really like Nurse Jackie. And criminal minds.

I don't understand how people can enjoy watching horror films!? I can watch some like Gothika and the purge films.

Harry Potter is always a good choice Amy!!

Buttons. 28-12-2016 09:11 PM

Gothika is an awesome film. Plus Halle Berry is hot :P

Hope you enjoy your posh bar :)

I'm currently hooked on Modern Family having been nagged into watching it by Zed + support worker, funny and not scary/violent, would recommend.

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 09:13 PM

I've heard quite a lot about modern family. It's supposed to be good!

Hi Katy! How are you?

Buttons. 28-12-2016 09:17 PM

I think it is quite good, took me a few episodes to get into it but now I am :)

Hi! I'm kicking myself because I let myself have a few hours sleep (knackered after disturbed night due to nightmares) so now will probably be awake all night again -_- How are you lovely?

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 09:37 PM

Might have to give it a go!

Oh no :(
Sleep issues are no fun. Do you have anything you can take to help you sleep? Just for a bit until you get back into a good pattern?

I'm ok thanks :)

Buttons. 28-12-2016 09:46 PM

I have some herbal stuff I might try next time I have to go upstairs.

Glad you're okay :)

Am just watching Paul O'Grady's for the love of dogs Christmas special <3

Cacoethes 28-12-2016 09:50 PM

Hope it works!!

Ah cool! I like Paul O Grady! And dogs! :p

Buttons. 28-12-2016 10:34 PM

Me too! Now waiting to watch latest Big Bang Theory episode. <3 TV despite years of not having one or seeing need for one! Now essential part of life.

Buttons. 28-12-2016 10:35 PM

I actually only got one in first place to watch the then latest Game of thrones series, and have never looked back :P

Sketchy 29-12-2016 12:13 AM

Anyone else awake?

tiptoes 29-12-2016 12:14 AM

I am, are you ok?

Sketchy 29-12-2016 12:16 AM

Yes thanks. I had a nap and now I'm wide awake. How are you?

tiptoes 29-12-2016 12:18 AM

Oh dear.

Oh you know, just lay in bed contemplating life and the universe as you do! :p

Sketchy 29-12-2016 12:24 AM

I know what you mean. I think I'll soon try go to sleep again so I can get up tomorrow.
