That's a shame. Will you rearrange your GP appointment? How long is the train journey? Wishing you a comfortable one.

It's the first time I've been to the group. It's library led but they didn't tell me what book they've been reading so I will be sitting there for an hour with nothing to say. Not that I'll likely have anything to say anyway when I do read whatever book they set for the next time.

chinahorse 08-05-2018 01:25 PM

Dunno yet, they only do 1 late night a week so I need to see if I can get in then. If not it doesn't fit around work. The journey is 3 and a half hours in the train. Then I'meyeing someone I went to school with and haent seen in years and then it's an hour on the bus. I hate living so far from everywhere!!

Oh, that's a bit odd. Depends how they structure the group you may still he able to contribute though. And it'll give you a good feeling for next time.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 01:26 PM

That's annoying Lillie :(
Hope you have a good time with your friend.
That is a long journey though!!

Hope you enjoy the group Lindsay!

I'm in the common room doing some maths before science class.
I've basically had to hang around for 3 hours just to speak to science tutor.
But at least I'm getting some work done!

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 01:30 PM

I hope you can sort something out Lillie. What a journey! Do you have things to occupy yourself with?

Hanging around can be quite annoying Beckie. Well done for using your time productively. :-)

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 01:38 PM

Thanks :)

I really, really hate maths!!

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 02:04 PM

I had a letter from the council saying they are doing an inspection. Only they didn't say what exactly they were inspecting. So I had to phone said council. Urgh I hate phone calls.

chinahorse 08-05-2018 03:00 PM

It's food that youve for some work done beckie! Doing this bit by bit makes it so much more manageable.

Did you find out what the inspection is for dawn? Hope it goes ok :)

I've mostly just slept and stared into space so far. I don't feel well so I don't have the motivation to do anything. I'm cold though but don't want to waste my money on nasty aas train tea.

Pomegranate 08-05-2018 03:10 PM

Glad you’re having a good day Beckie. Are things feeling more manageable now?

Have you got long left on the train Lillie?

Inspection sounds stressful- hope you’ve sorted it out!

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 03:21 PM

I had a tenancy inspection a month ago and they pointed out about my living room light fitting. So now they are coming to inspect the light fitting. I don't know why they are bothering with it now I have been here 9 years and I put it in 9 years ago. It was installed by a electrician so it's safe. I am not bothered by the inspection as the worst thing that they can say is to remove it. The thing is that the letter didn't say when they are coming time wise and I forgot to ask :-( . It's also the same day as my nurse is coming so knowing my luck they will come at the same time.

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 03:29 PM

Also I remembered I have to phone the vet in order to make an appointment. So that's another phone call. Urgh.

chinahorse 08-05-2018 03:37 PM

Might be better if they both come at the same time dawn? Less stressful if someone you know is there?

Hey Emma, what're you up to?

I've about an hour left on the train. Proper craving mcdonalds nomnom.

Pomegranate 08-05-2018 04:23 PM

Hope your train journey is nearly over :-)

Not doing much. CC called to say she’s taken today off with stress but she’ll see me some point this week. Crisis team called and I’m seeing an art therapist tomorrow!

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 04:25 PM

If they take an hour to do the inspection then it's not good as I am due my depot. So it's not good because the light fitting is in the living room and I don't have any other suitable room unless my nurse sits on my bed. So hopefully the workmen will come early as they will want to be back for before 5 pm.

MunchBox 08-05-2018 04:42 PM

Hello =)

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 04:44 PM

Hi Mary!

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 05:20 PM

Hi again everyone.

Art therapy sounds interesting, have you tried it before Emma?

The book group was ok I think. I was a bit all over the place in my head and I didn't really say much but I'll come back next time. We're reading The Black Book by James Patterson and David Ellis.

Trying to decide if I can be bothered watching Nurses Who Kill just now or do something else. I can't actually be bothered doing anything at home.

MunchBox 08-05-2018 05:32 PM

Hope you find something to do, Lindsay.

Hey dawn.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 05:54 PM

Hey everyone

MunchBox 08-05-2018 06:35 PM

Hello Beckie :)

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 06:36 PM

Hi Mary!
Nice to see you in here!

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:05 PM

Hi Beckie.

Are we going to have the what are you having for dinner discussion yet?

I entertained myself by having dinner (pizza and chips) and now I've run out of things I can be bothered doing again.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 07:16 PM

I'm going to have pizza after slimming world!

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:17 PM

Do you find yourself thinking about pizza all through slimming world though?!

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 07:18 PM

Yep!! Lol!

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:20 PM

Haha! I'm not sure if that's motivation to get through the class/group or if it's torture because you want pizza right at that minute.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 07:22 PM

Mainly motivation. And it means I enjoy it more :p

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:25 PM

That's good then. I hope you have an extra enjoyable pizza this evening.

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 07:28 PM

I am having steak and chips.

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:29 PM

Sounds like a good and proper meal Dawn! Do you have any sauce with your steak? I don't think I've ever had steak.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 07:30 PM

Thanks Lindsay!

Sounds good dawn
Steak is yummy

MunchBox 08-05-2018 07:31 PM

Dad's made prawn madras curry so imma have that.
Wish I had pizza

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 07:38 PM

Sounds good Mary!
Pizza is great tho

one_step_closer 08-05-2018 07:48 PM

I don't think I'm a fan of prawns in curry. I do like a prawn cocktail though.

Put your curry on some bread and pretend it's a pizza!

not_so_insig 08-05-2018 08:05 PM

No I don't have sauce on my steak.

Pomegranate 08-05-2018 08:13 PM

Prawns in curry has never appealed. I’m having left over Chinese!

MunchBox 08-05-2018 08:45 PM

Haha, Lindsay, I've scoffed the whole lot but maybe next time I'll pretend it's pizza.

God, I love anything prawn. Big fan.

Although I'd rather have Chinese over Indian any day

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 10:10 PM

I am sweating buckets!!
Its gone to that humid, sticky heat now

Pomegranate 08-05-2018 10:32 PM

It is really humid inside my flat. Stupid top floor!

Took Leo out for his first adventure outside without a harness etc. I think he was more scared than excited :-(. Poor Mr Meowy.

Cacoethes 08-05-2018 10:47 PM

Aww bless him!

MunchBox 09-05-2018 09:52 AM


I woke up even earlier than usual thinking I had therapy this morning but realised it's tomorrow.

Pomegranate 09-05-2018 10:43 AM

That’s frustrating! Could you not get back to sleep?

MunchBox 09-05-2018 02:31 PM

Nah, it's only occasionally I can go back to sleep after waking up in the morning. Just been chilling on my xbox.

Also, afternoon!

Cacoethes 09-05-2018 02:47 PM

Hey guys

Pomegranate 09-05-2018 02:54 PM

That’s annoying Mary

Hi Beckie

not_so_insig 09-05-2018 03:07 PM

Afternoon all. I have been swimming and I have cleaned the corridor in my block of flats so far today.

Cacoethes 09-05-2018 03:55 PM

Hi Emma!
How are you?

Sounds good dawn!

Cacoethes 09-05-2018 06:26 PM

Quiet in here today!

not_so_insig 09-05-2018 07:07 PM

It sure is Beckie.

one_step_closer 09-05-2018 07:26 PM

I suppose this is a safe place for the Q word to be used.

Cacoethes 09-05-2018 07:28 PM

Haha! I think so!

I've just had a lovely cool shower
