Afternoon everyone.

I hope you're naturally feeling good and not manic Beckie. I want you to feel good things and for it to continue.

I hope you have a nice time with your friends Tamo.

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 02:29 PM

Some people think I'm manic, some think I'm just in a great mood! So idk lol

one_step_closer 26-03-2022 03:38 PM

I hope you can have a prolonged good mood with no problems. How many times have you been out so far today? I just went to the chemist and straight back home.

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 03:50 PM

I've been out twice!
Next break isn't until 4:30

How's the weather where you are?

one_step_closer 26-03-2022 03:53 PM

It's nice outside but cold in my house. What about you?

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 04:13 PM

It's lovely here!
And actually a good temperature inside for once!

one_step_closer 26-03-2022 06:03 PM

How long do you get to stay out? Just until the smokers finish? Soak up the good weather! What's the temperature inside normally like?

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 06:09 PM

15 minutes!

Inside was FREEZING the other week but ok now!
I have my window open all the time

one_step_closer 26-03-2022 06:35 PM

The last time I was in hospital it was freezing through the night because the other people in the dorm said it was too hot so opened all the windows which kept banging with the wind. I had to wear a hoodie in bed and sneakily shut the windows when people were asleep.

nonperson 26-03-2022 07:38 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 08:07 PM

Thankfully they did away with dorms a long time ago here!

Yo np!

nonperson 26-03-2022 08:09 PM

Yo. How's it hanging?

(Seems like the appropriately cool thing to say after yo, right?)

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 08:18 PM

Haha! Definitely!

All good here!

nonperson 26-03-2022 08:23 PM

Good good.

Yeah, ok or average or something here. Don't really know.

Can't decide what to watch on tv...

Cacoethes 26-03-2022 10:03 PM

Ok or average is better than nothing!

Hmmm! I'm going to watch an episode of snowpiercer tonight i think!

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 08:15 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 27-03-2022 12:20 PM

Afternoon all. I had this weird dream that a load of people were on a bus being ferried to an unknown psych unit. Beckie was sitting next to me. The bus took all day went to 6 different train stations. Everyone was fed up and there was a screaming child. Then when it ended up in the final destination it was my local psych unit.

I offered Beckie an ginger nut and she was eating it until she asked how many calories were in it. I said idk but less than a cream cake. This triggered Beckie and she refused to eat the ginger nut. Then a psych nurse came and did Beckie's blood pressure and mine. She put a thing around my head of which an advert for hello fresh came through. During advert there was an porn bit of which I complained to the nurse. She said that she had listened to it and that it was my voices. I said that I dont hear voices except for 15 minutes a day and that she was wrong. Then someone from outside handed all the nurses and bus driver a pint of Carlsberg each. I dont know what happened next as I woke up.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 12:26 PM

Wow! That's a crazy dream!
I feel kinda flattered that i was in it though lol!

not_so_insig 27-03-2022 12:30 PM

Do you like ginger nuts?

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 12:39 PM

I do!

not_so_insig 27-03-2022 12:45 PM

That's good Beckie.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 12:47 PM

I currently have jammie dodgers in my drawer which i will nom later!

one_step_closer 27-03-2022 03:02 PM

That is one strange dream Dawn! And very detailed.

Jammie Dodgers are not one of my favourite biscuits. Although I do like biscuits in general.

What's everyones favourite biscuit?

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 03:27 PM

I think jammie dodgers may actually be my favourite!
But all biscuits are good!

nonperson 27-03-2022 03:47 PM

Jammie Dodgers used to be the best thing ever but now they're just a bit dry and tasteless.

Chocolate hobnobs are the best.

Or these quadruple (yes, quadruple) chocolate ones I found in Sainsbury's once.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 03:50 PM

Oooh yes chocolate hobnobs!

nonperson 27-03-2022 03:55 PM

Yep. So good.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 04:21 PM

They sound good!

Up to much today?

one_step_closer 27-03-2022 04:48 PM

Chocolate hobnobs are yum. Don't think I have a favourite but I like bourbons when I'm in hospital because they don't have much of a selection.

How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 05:10 PM

Bourbons are nice
Here we have shortbread type things, knock off jammie dodgers, bourbons, custard creams, oaties and normal digestives.

My day is BORING!
I'm writing all the song lyrics that speak to me!
I have 4 pages so far!

one_step_closer 27-03-2022 05:18 PM

That sounds like the selection we have of hospital biscuits, maybe all hospitals have the same biscuits. I like the oat ones too and custard creams.

Oh wow, that's a lot of pages. Gives you something to do I guess. Does sound like it could get boring though.

nonperson 27-03-2022 06:20 PM

Bourbons are good.

Are they those round shortbread things with a pattern round the egde and a sprinkling of sugar on top, Beckie?

Shortbread is probably one of my greatest downfalls.

When I was diagnosed diabetic and in hospital the only biscuits available were plain digestives and rich teas...

I got up late and had a very slow start but did an hour of yoga and have showered and done some laundry and even hoovered. But none of the other things I should have been doing like gardening and epic washing up.

I have a song lyric for you, Beckie. It just came on and is one of my new favourites: "I do not mind the rain sometimes 'cause that's the only way the roses bloom". Nice.

How's your day been, Lindsay?

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 06:22 PM

Yes they are np!

Sounds like a pretty productive day!
I need to shower!

Oooh that's a good song lyric!

nonperson 27-03-2022 06:29 PM

They are good biscuits for sure. Jealous.

Minorly productive maybe.

It's from Rain by grandson and Jessie Reyez

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 06:40 PM

Minorly productive is better than no productive!

I'll have to check it out!

I have showered and in freshly washed pjs!

nonperson 27-03-2022 06:43 PM

Well done. =)

I still need my bedding to finish washing and get it in the drier and put it on the bed. Woe.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 06:47 PM

Thanks! :-D

Oh no! That's one of the worst jobs!

nonperson 27-03-2022 07:12 PM

Yep and thats why I've put it off for so long. Gross.

Pondering whether it's too early to switch to my summer duvet...

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 07:23 PM

The weather is weird at the moment
I'd hold off for a bit!
Supposed to be cold next week!

nonperson 27-03-2022 07:27 PM

Yup that was my conclusion too.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 07:36 PM

It's much colder today
Actually had to wear a hoodie for fresh air breaks today!
Oh well. We had a good couple of days lol

nonperson 27-03-2022 07:48 PM

The warm weather can wait until later on imo. Now is not a good time, thank you.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 08:05 PM

Haha! I'm not really a fan either
But the last couple of days have been a great temperature!

nonperson 27-03-2022 08:11 PM

Yeah, I went out for the day yesterday and it wouldn't have been the same if it was cloudy and dull. Thankful for it not being mega hot though.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 08:48 PM

Yeah same
Can't deal with mega hot!

nonperson 27-03-2022 09:08 PM

It's better when it comes on slowly so you can acclimatise.

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 09:28 PM


Just ordered takeaway with one of the girls

nonperson 27-03-2022 10:20 PM

What did you order?

Cacoethes 27-03-2022 10:33 PM

I got a chicken burger and chicken strips. Chicken overload! The chicken burger from this place last time was legit amazing! Waaay better than kfc!
The other girl is getting a wrap

nonperson 27-03-2022 10:47 PM

Ok that's two times in two days that someone has mentioned KFC to me. Must be a sign.
