Cacoethes 29-10-2019 12:14 PM

Good :)

Apparently not long before I can go to the shop

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 12:17 PM

Don't fall down!

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 12:19 PM

I will try!

One of the consultants here is called Dr Butt
Lol!
(I am immature)

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 12:25 PM

Lol for amusing names

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 12:36 PM

My parcel is arriving today! Had an email saying it's arriving today and the app has been updated. Sadly for me it's nothing interesting.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 12:40 PM

I have been to the shop!
A student nurse took me
Very busy downstairs as they are doing health checks for people in the reception bit

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 12:42 PM

Yay Beckie. Are you still on a general ward not a psych ward?

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 12:57 PM

Yep still on the general ward
Have to wait for blood results and a repeat ECG

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 01:07 PM

I'm glad you got to the shop

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 01:07 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 01:15 PM

Thanks tamo

Afternoon lindsay!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 02:01 PM

Hi osc :)

I'm watching Friends, trying not to get anxious. Working through my activities list.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 02:05 PM

Good plan tamo

I am bored

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 02:09 PM

Being on a ward is boring. Do they have any magazines or puzzle books or similar?

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 02:15 PM

Nope nothing like that

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 02:22 PM

Seems to be the day for supermarket deliveries today in my street. Asda came at 11; Tesco came at 12 and now there's an Iceland van outside. Now all we need is Sainsbury's!

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 02:38 PM

And morrisons!

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 02:43 PM

Sadly Morrison's dont deliver to me. Neither do Ocado.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 02:46 PM

Ah that's a shame

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 03:02 PM

I must point out that the Tesco shopping delivery was mine. I have lots of cakes and biscuits plus a chocolate apple. I have some roses too.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 03:04 PM

Ooo nice!

I am on another drip.
Vitamin k apparently
Back to keeping my arm perfectly straight!

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 03:06 PM

Oh dear Beckie.

When I say roses I meant the flowers not the chocolate.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 03:13 PM

Ohh ok I thought you meant the chocolates!
Getting flowers is nice
I just ordered my mum some to be delivered tomorrow

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 03:54 PM

My godmother got me roses for my birthday a few weeks ago.

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 04:02 PM

I am getting fed up of waiting for my Amazon parcel. It said originally 1.30 to 4.30 then it said 1.45 to 4.45. Checked recently and it now says 4.30 to 7.30 pm! Trouble is that parking is a nightmare at night so the amazon person might not be able to park so they may give up. I hate amazon delivery sometimes.

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 04:05 PM

Arrgh now it says 5 pm to 8 pm. Trouble is that my parents will be here and they always give me an lecture whenever I have parcels.

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 04:05 PM

How frustrating!

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 04:14 PM

That is frustrating

Hoping to get out of here today

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:25 PM

Deliveries should magically appear in your living room as soon as you order them.

I hope you get back to the ward today Beckie.

How is your day going Tamo?

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 04:29 PM

They should lindsay!

Thanks, I think I probably will be

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:34 PM

Is it your iPad that is coming from Amazon? Deliveries are exciting!

I'm a bit blah. Got a couple of nice Zox bands in the post though.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 04:39 PM

Yep!!
Hopefully it's arrived by now

Sorry you're feeling blah
Zox bands are cool though! I hope they've cheered you up a little

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 04:52 PM

What's a Zox band?

I had a nice coffee with my nice friend and now I'm watching Friends.

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:52 PM

I miss having the free trial of Amazon Prime but I was just ordering everything and anything!

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:53 PM

A Zox band is a wristband that has a message on the inside of it. The ones I got today were 'you're going to be okay' and 'no feeling is permanent.'

Sounds good Tamo.

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 04:55 PM

I tried prime and enjoyed the free postage but decided it wasn't worth the.monthly fee.

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:55 PM

Yeah, I only use Prime when they offer a free trial. The same with Netflix.

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 04:57 PM

Aw that's nice. I wear 2 bracelets: an orange one to remind me I'm in recovery and a sparkly one my parents gave me, to remind me I'm loved.

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 04:59 PM

Those are really good reminders. :-)

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 05:05 PM

I also tried prime but don't really order enough to justify buying it
I did get free next day delivery on my ipad though!

one_step_closer 29-10-2019 05:06 PM

How did you manage that? I thought you ordered a second hand one?

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 05:21 PM

I did!
It just said free one day delivery if i ordered within the next hour

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 05:21 PM

Bargain

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 05:32 PM

Indeed!!

Just waiting for meds now

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 05:34 PM

My parcel has arrived! I am now the proud owner of some batteries.

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 05:36 PM

What are the batteries for?

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 05:55 PM

They're just spares tamobhuuta as I am running low and the type are they dont always have in Tesco.

tamobhuuta 29-10-2019 06:00 PM

Ah ok. What are you to this evening?

not_so_insig 29-10-2019 06:12 PM

My parents are coming later. Otherwise I just have to reheat my soup.

I have just been to the postbox and it's freezing outside.

Cacoethes 29-10-2019 06:17 PM

Meds are finally here and the ward are coming to pick me up
