Are you home yet Lillie?

Cacoethes 30-10-2019 07:30 PM

They promise snow every year and it rarely happens
Maybe it does in Scotland though!

not_so_insig 30-10-2019 07:36 PM

It shows here every year but then again I live quite high. Sometimes it's only a tiny bit though.

Cacoethes 30-10-2019 07:37 PM

Last year we didn't get any at all

one_step_closer 30-10-2019 07:41 PM

I think we pretty much always get some snow.

tamobhuuta 30-10-2019 07:47 PM

L is taking me to see the new Maleficent movie on Friday :)

Cacoethes 30-10-2019 07:52 PM

Awesome tamo!
I really want to see it

tamobhuuta 30-10-2019 07:59 PM

The first one was good so I've high hopes this one

Cacoethes 30-10-2019 08:10 PM

I liked the first one

chinahorse 30-10-2019 08:23 PM

I didn't enjoy it that much.

chinahorse 30-10-2019 09:08 PM

Why is it still early? I want to go to bed.

Cacoethes 30-10-2019 10:40 PM

I want to go to bed but it is bed time now!
Just got to wait for meds to kick in

one_step_closer 31-10-2019 10:43 AM

Morning everyone. How are you all today?

chinahorse 31-10-2019 11:02 AM

Morning, how're you? Any plans for the day?

I'm having a lazy morning and am still in my pj's. Do need to get going soon though. Blumming cold is just getting worse though.

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 11:06 AM

Morning. I'm still in bed but I will get up soon. My only plan is to shower

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 11:25 AM

Morning guys

Boo to cold Lillie :(

I'm still very tired
Would still be asleep if it wasnt for nurse in charge telling my 1-1 to wake me up to have a cup of tea -.-

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 11:32 AM

Did you have the tea, like a good girl?

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 11:37 AM

I did indeed!!
The nurse wanted to put 5 sugars in it but I didn't because that is waaaaaay too sweet!
I did put sugar in it though

chinahorse 31-10-2019 11:39 AM

More than 3 is extremely sweet! Unless you've decided to make tea in a bucket.

I've showered too! Not hair washed cos it's actually easier to do it separately with the whole dry thigh dry arm situation.

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 11:43 AM

Well done Caco, I think 5 sugars ruins tea. I have just milk.

That sounds very tricky china, well done.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 11:44 AM

Thanks tamo
This nurse and the ward manager are obsessed with making me super sweet tea
So they don't have to worry about my blood sugars

Well done for showering!
Must be so hard to do having to keep some parts dry!

chinahorse 31-10-2019 11:53 AM

I mean your sugars are an issue and I can see where they are coming from in that respect.

Showering certainly isn't a relaxing experience at the moment!

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 12:13 PM

Yeah I suppose so
Just annoying because I don't really like sugar in tea
I prefer sweetener
Been made to sit in the quiet room around people because they are short staffed and they need my 1-1 person on the floor

I can imagine Lillie!

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 12:16 PM

When I was little I used to have black tea with a million sugars, then realised I actually enjoyed it with milk.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 12:34 PM

I prefer tea and coffee with milk
One hospital I was in the cook made us coffee with double cream instead of milk
It was soooo good but not good for the waistline!

chinahorse 31-10-2019 12:38 PM

That's unfair beckie. It's not your fault they are short staffed.

Ewww I can imagine cream in coffee being very rich.

not_so_insig 31-10-2019 12:39 PM

I have sugar in tea but not coffee.

I am waiting for another parcel. I hope that tracking is right this time as it's due between 1.10 pm and 2.10 pm today.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 12:42 PM

It is a bit unfair
The nurse said she knows it's not my fault but I need to get out of my room

It was very rich but good!

chinahorse 31-10-2019 12:44 PM

Youre being nicer about it than I would be beckie.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 01:01 PM

It's not too bad really
I'm sitting with some of the girls and we're listening to paramore
1-1 person is back now because the big bosses are on the ward and they need to look good

chinahorse 31-10-2019 02:47 PM

It's so cold! And my cold is horrid.

I can't be bothered to go out.

not_so_insig 31-10-2019 03:10 PM

My parcel is late :angry:

I was supposed to go out but I cant now.

one_step_closer 31-10-2019 03:30 PM

I hope your parcel isn't too late Dawn.

Do you really need to go out Lillie?

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 04:00 PM

It is rather cold

chinahorse 31-10-2019 04:08 PM

I made it to aldi and back and am now thoroughly exhausted.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 04:16 PM

Well done Lillie!

chinahorse 31-10-2019 04:23 PM

Thanks! I had to put the basket down every time I wanted to take something from a shelf and put it in said basket and it was so annoying.

But I dk now have cold and flu tablets so will hopefully feel less grim soon.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 04:26 PM

That does sound annoying

Fingers crossed the tablets work!

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 04:26 PM

I'm having a chill day. But not showered yet.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 04:31 PM

Chill day sounds good
You have plenty of time to shower

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 04:33 PM

As long as I don't sit on the sofa!

not_so_insig 31-10-2019 04:37 PM

I have had my parcel. It came at about 2.30 pm.

I have been out for paint shopping. Because the council gave me a decorating voucher the paint was only 7 for 3 5 litre tins.

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 04:38 PM

Great bargain!

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 04:51 PM

Today is going soooo slowly

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 05:00 PM

Can you listen to music or audiobooks. Give your full attention to a cup.of tea (I know that's hard atm) talk to patients and staff. Do you have a garden? Have a little walk and get fresh air - breathe deep. Don't hyperventilate! Do some doodling and sketching.

not_so_insig 31-10-2019 05:03 PM

Time goes slowly in psych wards I think.

Cacoethes 31-10-2019 05:06 PM

Thanks for the suggestions tamo
I am talking to my 1-1 person
It's good staff today
There is a small garden but I am cold and only have a hoodie

It does dawn

tamobhuuta 31-10-2019 06:18 PM

It's cold here too. I'm glad you have good staff around.

one_step_closer 31-10-2019 07:05 PM

*lights well controlled fire*

zombiehunter 31-10-2019 07:07 PM

dammit I was in Tesco earlier and forgot to rearrange the lettered candles into swear words :-(
