Evening all.

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 06:36 PM

Thanks yoyo.
I know why they did it. I'm just not happy about it

Evening np
How are you?

nonperson 24-11-2020 06:46 PM

Cold, but all flu jabbed up now though which is good, although it was a horrible nurse. =(

How's the heating situation where you are?

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 07:03 PM

Glad you got it done. I hate it when the nurses.are mean
They are supposed to be nice!

It's not too bad. Does get a bit chilly at night

nonperson 24-11-2020 07:07 PM

Yup she was mean as soon as I walked in and then wondered why my blood pressure was sky high.

Cold at night is not good.

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 07:19 PM

Ugh. They are supposed to be in a CARING profession

Nope. Have to sleep with my hoodie on some nights plus 2 blankets

nonperson 24-11-2020 07:37 PM

That is rubbish. What's worse, being cold at night or the heating being stuck on in summer? o.o

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 08:30 PM

I think the heating being on in summer. I experienced that this year and it was horrible!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 11:36 AM

My mum has made apple muffins. That's my breakfast sorted.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 11:55 AM

Oooo yummy

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 12:08 PM

How are you?

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 12:26 PM

I’m ok. Tired.

one_step_closer 25-11-2020 12:28 PM

Hi everyone, sorry I've been quiet.

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 12:58 PM

Hi osc :)
I'm tired too.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 01:32 PM

Hi Lindsay
No need to apologise
Hope you’re ok

I’ve just tried to nap but nope

not_so_insig 25-11-2020 01:39 PM

My internet went down last night which sucked. Meant I had to use mobile data to come on here. Unfortunately my signal isn't good enough for posting.

one_step_closer 25-11-2020 02:45 PM

It sometimes helps just to lie down with your eyes closed for a while, I can't properly nap either.

Is your internet ok now Dawn?

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 02:50 PM

That's annoying dawn

That's what I've been doing lindsay
I only really move to go to the toilet or get drinks!

I have 6 amazon orders coming today. And one ebay order coming Saturday to Tuesday

not_so_insig 25-11-2020 04:24 PM

Yes my internet is fine now thanks. Tad annoying though.

one_step_closer 25-11-2020 04:27 PM

I love Amazon deliveries <3 I also shop lots when I'm in hospital.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 04:31 PM

Me too lindsay!
Just had my second delivery of the day!
I think that's it now.
My nintendo ds came but amazon said in an email the game wasn't available which is disappointing. Hence the ebay order of a game! (Pokemon!)
Ebay was about 40 cheaper than amazon for the game!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 06:44 PM

I forgot how yummy white chocolate is!

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 07:41 PM

White chocolate is yummy!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 07:42 PM

You up to much this evening?

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 08:04 PM

Nope! Not much to do here really. Might watch something on the ipad but don't know what.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 08:48 PM

Yesterday's Bake Off but I'm so tired I might go to bed part way through.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 09:12 PM

I’m pretty tired as well
Can’t wait until meds time!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 09:13 PM

Some nurses would give me night meds early to keep me out of trouble.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 09:21 PM

If I want them especially early I usually ask for paracetamol and they usually say they might as well give me my night meds at the same time. I am sneaky :p

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 09:28 PM


Cacoethes 25-11-2020 09:46 PM

Hehe :p
I’m waiting for supper time now. I do like an evening Horlicks!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 10:01 PM

One ward I went to did supper too. Toast and hot chocolate.

tamobhuuta 25-11-2020 10:02 PM

Other beverages available.

Cacoethes 25-11-2020 10:04 PM

All the wards here do supper. Toast, yogurt, hot chocolate or horlicks.
There used to be sandwiches/salads leftover from lunch too. Not sure if there still is.
And cheese and crackers but they stopped the cheese because it was too expensive. Sad because I like cheese :(

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 11:11 AM

Morning all. I slept terribly, should have had PRN.

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 11:13 AM

Morning tamo
I also slept badly. Despite prn!

I have ward round today :ermm:

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 11:35 AM

Good luck x

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 11:55 AM

Thank you x
It’s not until 3:30 so I have all day to get anxious about it!

What are you up to today?

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 12:01 PM

I hate waiting for appointments.

Mine is a quiet day, just doing my best to keep distracted..

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 12:18 PM


Sounds like a good plan

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 02:06 PM

I'm waiting for Doctors on the telly.

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 02:19 PM

I'm watching I'm a celeb on my ipad. I'm not an avid watcher of it but I didn't know what else to put on

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 02:41 PM

I've never watched that but my big sister likes it.

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 02:42 PM

It can be quite good

It's still aaagggeesss until ward round!

tamobhuuta 26-11-2020 04:29 PM

Thinking of you!

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 05:46 PM

Thank you
It was ****
But I won't talk about it here!

not_so_insig 26-11-2020 09:35 PM

What is everyone up to? I am doing my laundry and have done some cleaning.

Cacoethes 26-11-2020 09:42 PM

Well done dawn!

I'm not doing much. Contemplating moving to go and get my ipad

one_step_closer 27-11-2020 12:17 PM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 27-11-2020 12:33 PM

Morning Lindsay
I am ok thanks. They let me sleep in until 10am today before calling me for meds!
