It was ok. They asked about customer service stuff though like I was interviewing for a shop. I did flounder at that because I wasnt expecting it for a nursing position.

The post is amazing! A box of goodies like pens and a colouring book and chocolate and ofcourse tea bags.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 12:34 PM

That's a bit odd!

Awww that's so nice!

chinahorse 20-01-2020 12:46 PM

Suppose that a fair bit of nursing is interacting with people, especially if you're on reception but to be asked to describe an example where you've given good customer service! So obviously written by a corporate manager with no clue.

Indigo. 20-01-2020 12:46 PM

Sucks you have to go home Beckie. Hope you had a nice weekend though X

That sounds lovely Lillie :) Hope the interview went well in spite of the unexpected customer service questions!

It's so sunny here! Too sunny...

chinahorse 20-01-2020 12:55 PM

It's very sunny here too. Quite nice really.

Am curled up in my heated throw. And have just been joined by a kitty cat.

Indigo. 20-01-2020 01:01 PM

My sunglasses broke a while ago and the sun is painful, otherwise I would enjoy it loads more. It's a good change from ever-gloomy overcast weather though.

Yay for warm blanket & kitty cat :)

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 01:48 PM

I have had a nice weekend thanks Lucy

Sunny here too!
Cold though

The samaritans are at the train station giving out cake

chinahorse 20-01-2020 01:52 PM

Ah, that sucks Lucy. Hat?

Ooooo cake!! I've had some chocolate :-) and hung up the laundry. Not sure what to do with myself.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 01:58 PM

What kind of chocolate did you have?

Do you have anything else to do today?

chinahorse 20-01-2020 02:01 PM

Those Malteser button things.

Nothing else to do no. Well put sheets on the bed once its aired out. And call the gp and ask why the refused my prescription request.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 02:07 PM

Ooo nice

Hmm that's odd that they refused the request
I've never heard of that happen before

chinahorse 20-01-2020 02:11 PM

It's usually when I've requested it too early but I havent had it since November.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 02:30 PM

How strange

Indigo. 20-01-2020 03:05 PM

That's annoying Lillie. Maybe GP thinks you need a review. That's the only time they've refused mine, esp if I hadn't had those meds in a while.

Hats feel uncomfortable so I never wear them. They would certainly help with the sun and also the cold!

Yay for cake and chocolate. I might have some chocolate too in a bit.

not_so_insig 20-01-2020 04:00 PM

My gp always queries my prn meds so I never end up getting them if it goes to the gp. So I have to go to the hospital pharmacy.

nonperson 20-01-2020 04:01 PM

I'm cold! I want chocolate.

chinahorse 20-01-2020 04:10 PM

Maybe hot chocolate to combat this cold?!

I had a snooze and put on the sheets and pillowcases. Just the duvet cover left.

nonperson 20-01-2020 04:12 PM

Hot chocolate for definite when I get home later.

one_step_closer 20-01-2020 04:26 PM

Hello again.

chinahorse 20-01-2020 04:29 PM

Hey Lindsay :-)

one_step_closer 20-01-2020 04:36 PM

Have you tackled the duvet yet Lillie?

chinahorse 20-01-2020 04:38 PM

Nope. Snuggled under the heated throw again.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 04:43 PM

Hey lindsay

I'm home now
Already feeling lonely!

tamobhuuta 20-01-2020 04:52 PM

Hi all. Jealous of your heated throw china.

Seen my godmother which was nice. 2nd official tea time now.

chinahorse 20-01-2020 04:57 PM

Got anything nice planned to look forward to beckie?

It is glorious tamo. Got it off amazon.

tamobhuuta 20-01-2020 05:02 PM

Nice one. Dad has made a fire and I'm right next to it :)

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 05:03 PM

Nope Lillie
I have nothing to do!

chinahorse 20-01-2020 05:06 PM

Lovely tamo.

Should plan in a trip to see jasmine!

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 05:17 PM

I will on Saturday!
No point during the week because she's at school
I'm going to start swimming again this week actually so that's something

Indigo. 20-01-2020 05:19 PM

Been saying this all my life but school sucks. I hope Jasmine enjoys it though :) Yay for swimming too Beckie, I want to swim as well. Maybe soon.

Can relate Lillie, I did the laundry but haven't put it up to dry yet.

Sounds lovely Tamo.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 05:23 PM

School does indeed suck!
Jasmine isn't a fan of it either!

Swimming is a great exercise. And it's fun!

chinahorse 20-01-2020 05:34 PM

I quite liked school.

And swimming is great fun.

Indigo. 20-01-2020 05:38 PM

I can't wait to go swimming, waiting for stuff to heal& might get a piercing spoon(since my hair is short enough to not get tangled), so I will probably have to wait until the summer.

I think it's the best exercise!

chinahorse 20-01-2020 06:00 PM

I'd find it too much to go swimming by myself. Someone come with me?!

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 06:11 PM

I totally would if I lived anywhere near you Lillie!

I am soooo cold!

tamobhuuta 20-01-2020 06:17 PM

I absolutely HATE swimming, I hate being wet. I like dancing for exercise. Haven't done it for ages though - we are talking years!

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 06:23 PM

I like dancing exercise too!
I used to go to clubbercise and zumba but they changed the venue and I couldn't go anymore :(

nonperson 20-01-2020 06:29 PM

I really like swimming but I'm far too self conscious to go. I'd need a completely empty pool. =)

Again, dancing exercise sounds good but I'd have to be totally on my own!

Do they do any of those sorts of classes at your swimming pool, Beckie?

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 06:49 PM

They have things like aqua blast but it's really early in the morning!
No dance exercise classes there. I went to a spin class once and it was hell on earth

nonperson 20-01-2020 06:52 PM

Yeah I've heard that spin classes aren't the easiest!

What's aqua blast?

Maybe instead of walking you could dance to the pool. =P

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 06:57 PM

I wanted to leave after 10 minutes but I was too self conscious to leave so I stayed for the 45 minutes!!

Aqua blast is like aqua aerobics as far as I can tell
Mainly aimed at old people

I might look a bit mental if I do that :p

I saw someone eating pizza on TV so I ordered domino's
I'm so impressionable!

nonperson 20-01-2020 07:03 PM

I want Dominos and chicken wings and warm cookies! =(

chinahorse 20-01-2020 07:04 PM

Mmmm dominoes!!

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 07:11 PM

I have warm cookies too!
But I am stuffed so may have to have them for breakfast

Domino's is so good

nonperson 20-01-2020 07:13 PM

Well now I'm just truly miserable knowing you have warm cookies AND will be having them for breakfast! =P

Indigo. 20-01-2020 07:16 PM

I feel a bit weird exercising with others tbh. Would come with you if we lived near each other though Lillie.

Yay for Dominoes Beckie! I went to McDonald's as I live very close to it but don't have it often.

NP, that's why I like exercising at home. Pilates mostly, though I don't have the motivation that often.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 07:21 PM

Sorry np!!

McDonald's is yummy
What do you usually get?

nonperson 20-01-2020 07:21 PM

I don't have the motivation often either. =/ That's why going to a group thing can be better... or I used to go to yoga with a friend and we didn't want to let each other down by not going.

Cacoethes 20-01-2020 07:56 PM

I prefer going to group things

one_step_closer 20-01-2020 08:02 PM

Yummy food!

I used to go to the gym myself but now I only go with the gym group.
