Happy birthday Lillie!! <3 <3

chinahorse 26-03-2020 10:44 AM

Ahhhh that's epic np!

Thanks guys:-) makes me feel less alone.

nonperson 26-03-2020 10:44 AM

I have this one too but it's a bit twee:

nonperson 26-03-2020 10:45 AM

I'm glad you don't feel so alone. That was the idea. =)

I've been googling birthday tea parties... or rather birthday parTEAs, haha.

chinahorse 26-03-2020 10:47 AM

Hahaha what a proper neat idea to google

nonperson 26-03-2020 10:51 AM

Well what other kind of birthday party would you have!

chinahorse 26-03-2020 10:55 AM

That last pic is like my dream party.

nonperson 26-03-2020 10:57 AM

Yay. =P I'm working on the cake right now, hang on. >.>

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 10:59 AM

Happy birthday lillie!

Morning everyone, how are we all?

nonperson 26-03-2020 10:59 AM

Couldn't decide between these two so you can have both.

nonperson 26-03-2020 11:01 AM

Morning Alison. =)

I'm tired but waiting for a delivery of new new yoga stuff... which I've just had a notification to say it's arrived. =o

How're you?

tamobhuuta 26-03-2020 11:10 AM

Happy birthday china! I hope you have the lovely weather we've got.

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 11:16 AM

I’m okay thanks. My tutor is doing a video chat later (would usually be in college all day today) so no doubt she’ll keep me busy for the next few days ha. Also have to clean the kitchen, I made empire biscuits and millionaires shortbread yesterday.

You up to much today np?

nonperson 26-03-2020 11:18 AM

Hope your tutor doesn't give you too much work to do! Ooh what are empire biscuits?

I have no plans as such. I will do some yoga now my new stuff has arrived. The new mat is VERY pink... it looked more lavender from the photo. =/

Hey Tamo. =)

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 11:25 AM

Google has just informed me they’re only a Scottish thing! How weird. Basically, they’re two plain digestives with raspberry jam in the middle so they stick together with icing and a sweetie (like jelly tots or smarties) on top.

I tried putting in a picture but I’m hopeless woth technology and don’t know how ha.

nonperson 26-03-2020 11:30 AM

They sound nice, I shall google.

I've been saving the pics and uploading to imgbb.

nonperson 26-03-2020 11:33 AM

They look amazing! :shocked:

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 11:41 AM

Morning guys

Those biscuits sound amazing!

one_step_closer 26-03-2020 11:57 AM

Oh my goodness empire biscuits should not just be a Scottish thing. Share them with the world!

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 12:01 PM

I may have to travel to Scotland just to get some

chinahorse 26-03-2020 12:12 PM

Those biscuits sound good

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 12:40 PM

Hey Lillie

Why is it when I can't get coffee I want coffee even more??
They are fixing the windows in the dining room where the coffee is so we can't go in there

chinahorse 26-03-2020 12:42 PM

How rude! Hopefully they will be done soon.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 12:45 PM

It's lunch soon so they should be done in the next 10 minutes or so!

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 01:21 PM

They’re so easy to make, you should try make them and then spread them round the world haha!

My tutor didn’t give me too much work to do as we have an assignment due on the 20th so happy with that :).

How is everyone elses day going?

chinahorse 26-03-2020 02:18 PM

Happy days Alison.

I've been out to boots and get electric. And cider because that's an essential today and is in the same shop as the electric. It's a beautiful day for weather.

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 02:33 PM

It is, its a shame we’re all stuck inside. Still a bit cold here but at least its not raining!

I hope you enjoy your cider Lillie! I’m joining you in a glass in spirit.

chinahorse 26-03-2020 02:36 PM

It's nice here! I'm in a midi dress and Jean jacket with bare legs. Considering sitting inthe back yard.

not_so_insig 26-03-2020 02:45 PM

Hey everyone. Unfortunately I got woken up by my inconsiderate neighbour who decided to play his guitar at 8.15 am. It woke me up so am not best pleased. Fortunately I managed to get to sleep.

I got a letter and 2 photos from Judy Cornwell this morning. Also a letter from the cmht saying that they're limiting the home visits to those on a depot and those who have an clinical need. Which I already knew. They're also preventing people going to the cmht to pick up meds.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 02:47 PM

It is nice weather today!
I have ward round so hoping for discharge/leave so I can go out in it!

chinahorse 26-03-2020 03:01 PM

Maybe theyd consider escorted leave if not beckie?

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 03:29 PM

They might do.
But I'd be lucky to get a member of staff free to take me!

not_so_insig 26-03-2020 03:41 PM

I can smell my dinner cooking as it's in the slow cooker and it's making me feel hungry! It's not even ready yet.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 04:04 PM

The consultant is on a discharge spree so I'm liking my chances!

nonperson 26-03-2020 04:06 PM

Any one who needs a bit of a laugh about life at the moment and likes Disney songs should check out this guy's paraodies on Facebook:


There's also Part Of This World (I Want To Be Where The People Aren't) =P

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 04:13 PM

That's hilarious!
And will now be stuck in my head for the day!

nonperson 26-03-2020 04:14 PM

Same, which is why I had to share it. >=)

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 04:21 PM

Evil np!
It's not the worst song to have in your head though!

nonperson 26-03-2020 04:24 PM

I suppose not. =P


Cacoethes 26-03-2020 04:47 PM

This guy is awesome!

So just had ward round
Probable discharge on Monday
But I only have escorted leave so I am suspicious
Surely if I was ready for discharge then I should be unescorted or informal?
Apparently I'm only not getting discharged this week because so many people are and the staff are stressed
Sorry to ramble on!

nonperson 26-03-2020 06:00 PM

Monday's not too far away. At least you know it's likely to happen sooner rather than later even if it seems a bit suspicious.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 06:20 PM


I’ve just had dinner
It was lasagne
What have you got tonight np?

one_step_closer 26-03-2020 07:13 PM

I had corned beef hash.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 08:11 PM


nonperson 26-03-2020 08:30 PM

Mmm lasagne.

I'm gonna have chicken and chips and beans. Something simple I can shove in the oven.

Need to do a bit of an inventory of food tomorrow to see how long my stocks will last. =/

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 08:32 PM

Sounds good

I have no idea at all what I have at home!

How are the supermarkets around you atm np?

nonperson 26-03-2020 08:35 PM

I've no idea what they're like to be honest. Last time I went was last Friday and it was chaotic. I need to find out which supermarkets are doing special hours for vulnerable people though... Doesn't look like it's possible to get any delivery slots so going out into the infectious world is the only way. =/

The Worst Witch 26-03-2020 08:40 PM

The shops here are ok Beckie because they’re only letting in a certain amount of people at a time. I don’t know if thats a UK wide thing or not though.

nonperson 26-03-2020 08:42 PM

Actually I did hear somewhere that they're doing a similar thing down here too so everyone can do social distancing properly.

Cacoethes 26-03-2020 08:51 PM

I heard that too
