I am nervous and excited about my delivery today. Other than that I am ok.

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 11:00 AM

Ninja post tamobhuuta!

I have my new washing machine coming today but that's about it.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 11:07 AM

I hope the delivery goes well Dawn!

I have my trial shift at Hollywood bowl today at 4pm!
And I have to go and pick up my smart trousers from Next at 1pm. Hopefully they fit!

How about you tamo?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 11:08 AM

How come you're excited and nervous?

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 12:43 PM

I feel like a grown up, I have put my meds in my weekly box.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 02:03 PM

Well done tamo! :)

I've had some trouser stress but it's all sorted and I'm ready for my trial shift!
My train is at 3pm

tamobhuuta 14-07-2021 03:04 PM

Good luck x

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 03:05 PM

Thank you :)

nonperson 14-07-2021 03:12 PM

Good luck with your shift today, Beckie! How long is it for?

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 03:31 PM

Thanks np!
It's for 2 hours
I'm early so I'm chilling at McDonald's with some sort of chilled raspberry ripple drink. It's nice!

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 03:34 PM

And its just given me major brain freeze!

not_so_insig 14-07-2021 03:53 PM

My machine is here. Just gotta wait for my dad to install it now which will be later. My female cat has already inspected it lol.

nonperson 14-07-2021 06:29 PM

Hehe, brain freeze.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 06:43 PM

Trial shift is done!
It was majorly full on and overwhelming and apparently that was a quiet day!
But it was good!
I'll find out whether I got the job tomorrow or Friday.
The manager said I came very highly recommended! Lol

nonperson 14-07-2021 06:46 PM

It's nice to be highly recommended. Glad it went well. Do you think it's something you'd enjoy/ get used to doing?

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 06:57 PM

It is!
Thanks :)
I think so! I definitely won't be bored!

nonperson 14-07-2021 07:05 PM

Fingers crossed then =)

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 07:11 PM

I have another interview tomorrow for an 'optical consultant' at boots opticians which I think I would prefer so we shall see!

nonperson 14-07-2021 08:32 PM

It sounds quieter and less chaotic. Good to have options though!

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 08:38 PM

Yes it is!
It's closer as well. Just up at the retail park a 25 minute walk away rather than 20 minutes train.

nonperson 14-07-2021 09:26 PM

Hmm, that's definitely much more convenient.

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 09:34 PM

And it would save me money on train fare!

nonperson 14-07-2021 09:45 PM

Well let's hope you get offered both jobs and have a choice =P

Cacoethes 14-07-2021 10:20 PM

Haha! We shall see!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 08:41 AM

Morning guys!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 11:05 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you? You're up early!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 11:16 AM

I'm good thanks!
Yes I was. Don't know why!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 11:31 AM

I'm ok, just about to do some mindfulness. You?

one_step_closer 15-07-2021 11:42 AM

Morning everyone. Good luck with your interview Beckie. Are you feeling ok about it?

I'm rubbish at mindfulness, hope it is beneficial for you Tamo.

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 11:43 AM

Hello all. I didnt sleep very well last night. Am testing out my washing machine again.

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 11:48 AM

Hi osc, how are you? I find mindfulness hard, I do the most basic level.

Sorry you didn't sleep well insig. I hope the washing machine works.

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 11:51 AM

Thanks tamobhuuta. I have a cpn appointment which I am not looking forward to. It's not with my regular cpn.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 11:58 AM

Morning lindsay and dawn

I am also rubbish at mindfulness!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 12:00 PM

Insig, I hope the meeting goes OK.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 12:01 PM

Oh and lindsay, i am very nervous about my interview but hopefully it will be OK!

tamobhuuta 15-07-2021 12:09 PM

What's the job Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 12:13 PM

Optical consultant at boots opticians. I really really want this one!

nonperson 15-07-2021 05:34 PM

How did it go?

not_so_insig 15-07-2021 05:34 PM

I have finally managed to get my washing machine to connect to the WiFi. Now I havent got any washing to do though so can't set it from my phone.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 05:47 PM

It went ok thanks np!
He was rather late so it felt a bit rushed though.
But hopefully I'll find out if I can move onto the next stage soon!

nonperson 15-07-2021 05:57 PM

Good to hear it went alright =)

I don't see the point of WiFi controlled washing machines/tumble dryers. Unless the WiFi can put the clothes and detergent in the machine then what's the point?!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 06:04 PM


How's your day been anyway?

nonperson 15-07-2021 06:10 PM

Eh, alright I suppose. Not looking forward to tomorrow at all with the heat...

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 06:31 PM

Ohhh is it supposed to be hot tomorrow? :ermm:

nonperson 15-07-2021 06:33 PM

There's a mini heatwave coming in!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 06:39 PM

Oh nooooooo!!!

nonperson 15-07-2021 07:39 PM

I suppose summer had to arrive at some point... =(

It had to pick a weekend that I'm actually going further than 5 miles from my house though!

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 07:41 PM

I suppose so :(

I have to walk the 30-40 mins to my psych appointment tomorrow too.
Looks like it's going to be a crap day for us both!

nonperson 15-07-2021 07:45 PM

Ugh that's too much walking even on a nice weather day. What time have you got to be out?

Tomorrow isn't meant to be AS bad as Saturday and Sunday if that helps.

Cacoethes 15-07-2021 07:48 PM

It is!
I got Halfway there today when my cpn rang and said the appointment is tomorrow instead. Was not happy!
My appointment is at 3pm. So I'll leave around 2:20pm

That does help!

What are you up to tomorrow?

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 01:44 AM.
