The one person I do like in Holby is Jac, she just doesn't give af. I also loved Elliot Hope when he was in it, but thats about it.

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 12:37 PM

Jac is badass. I love her!
I forgot all about Elliot Hope! He was adorable!

Icecube. Swirls 16-05-2017 12:42 PM

Jac Is my favourite in Holby. I like watching The Bill but prefer Holby.

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 12:42 PM

He sure was adorable!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 12:43 PM

Hi Meera how are you?

Icecube. Swirls 16-05-2017 12:45 PM

I loved the way Elliott was so nice and caring to everyone

Icecube. Swirls 16-05-2017 12:48 PM

Hi Amy, haven't spoken to you for ages - mood has been up and down, just taking one day at a time. How are you?

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 12:48 PM

Hi meera!
Haven't seen you around in a while!

I haven't been on for a long time because I've been unwell for the last few months and just really down but am back now. :-)

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 12:54 PM

Sorry to hear that.
Good to see you though!

Icecube. Swirls 16-05-2017 12:55 PM

Thanks. Yes it's good to be back though. :-)

not_so_insig 16-05-2017 01:46 PM

I have the actress who plays Jac on vhs as she was in a adaptation of The Castle of Adventure by Enid Blyton when she was younger. It starred Brian Blessed. I wonder what her bacon number is.

not_so_insig 16-05-2017 01:49 PM

Google isn't saying what her bacon number is but I am guessing that it's 3 because Brian Blessed is number 2.

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 01:57 PM

Just back from asda.
It's sooo humid today!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 02:14 PM

Get anything nice Beckie?

How are you Dawn?

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 02:16 PM

Just the usual!
And a chocolate bar to have with my Chinese tonight *excitement!*

What are you up to Amy?

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 02:21 PM

Nommy noms!

Well I have yet to do any tasks, for once not because of procrastination!
But a lovely long chat on the phone with one of my friendlings.

So now I'm finishing lunch, then tasks!

Are you up to much before SW?

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 02:23 PM

Awww that sounds lovely!
Long chats are great!

Nope! I have nothing to do now!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 02:25 PM

Oh no!

You need a project to keep yourself busy!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 02:28 PM

I really do need to find a hobby!
I wish I could do more exercise classes. I missed a zumba class this morning because I didn't have the cash out. There's a clubbercise tonight but it clashes with slimming world and all the other ones are in other villages that I can't get to which is a shame.
I'll do the Tuesday zumba next week though as well as Friday zumba and clubbercise on Thursday.!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 02:35 PM

You could make a scrapbook of photos of Jasmine or just random photos throughout your life.

Thats a shame you missed Zumba. It'll come round soon again!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 03:01 PM

That's a good idea!
It would be nice to have something like that!

Yeah I'll still go on Friday :)

I'm suddenly really tired for some reason! Odd!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 03:05 PM

You don't even really need to be that creative to do a scrapbook as it's mainly just cutting and sticking. And you can just add to it little by little.

Have a nap if you need lovely.

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 03:10 PM

I used to be very creative before all the meds destroyed the creativity!
But I can give it a go!

I'm not one for napping during the day! Only really when I'm unwell or if accidentally take my night meds instead of morning meds!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 03:34 PM

It's nice to have photos in physical form rather than just on your phone or whatever!

I hope you feel less tired soon!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 03:38 PM

I try to get a load of photos printed every so often because I like to have physical copies.
I got some done fairly recently.

Thanks! Copious amounts of coffee and diet coke seems to have helped :p

How are you getting on with your tasks?

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 03:46 PM

Caffeine ftw :-p

I'm getting on okay, I've done a little bit of my personal statement.

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 03:47 PM

I don't know what I'd do without caffeine!

That's good. Personal statements are a bitch to write!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 03:52 PM

Aren't they just! Especially when it's just any job you want.
Not your dream job. Like how can I get passionate about writing for a retail assistant role *rolls eyes*

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 03:55 PM


I just got a letter from an nhs job saying I've not been invited to an interview. Even though I should get a guaranteed interview cos of disability...oh well! Probs wouldn't get it anywsy cos criminal record.
But 99% of the jobs available round here are care jobs so I'm a bit stuck really!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 03:57 PM

Well that sucks!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 04:03 PM

Serves me right for being criminally insane :tongue2:

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 04:07 PM

I would totally hire you!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 04:12 PM

Aww thanks!! :D

I have just had an email from letting agent.
The landlord is increasing my rent AGAIN!!
It's getting ridiculous now.
They said it's a 'small increase'
Well it may be small to them, but to someone on benefits it makes a HUGE difference to have that much extra going out a month.
I don't have a choice though.
I am not a happy Beckie.

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 04:16 PM

Oh no!
I think mine has gone up, but I darn't check it against housing benefit to see the difference, so have just been paying the same. Clearly waiting for them to tell me I am in arrears is a better plan :-p

Hope you can still manage with the increase!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 04:26 PM

Oh dear :/
You should probably try and look into that!
Although I am a massive hypocrite because I may have done the exact same thing in my last place :whistling:

I should be able to manage. Thank God I don't smoke anymore because I don't think I would have been able to do it otherwise!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 04:33 PM

I've got savings so it doesn't matter too much. I just like to make a stand against these things and rebel for a while :-p

Definitely a very good reason to stay smoke free :-)

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 04:39 PM

Haha! Fair enough! :p


Ugh. Counting the hours until slimming world! Or, more specifically, counting the hours until the food after slimming world :p

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 04:48 PM

Chinese is definitely something to look forward to!

not_so_insig 16-05-2017 04:52 PM

Hi there!

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 04:53 PM

It is indeed!!

Letting agent just called to confirm im ok with the increase. She's gonna send out a new contract.
I hate going through contracts! I always miss at least 2 places im meant to sign because you have to sign sooo many times!!!

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 04:56 PM

I wonder if anyone actually reads them...

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 05:01 PM

I very much doubt it!
Unless there's like a dispute or something.

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 05:16 PM

Haha no I doubt it!

Oh I'm feeling weary.

I tried one of them cherry bakewell alpen bars at lunch very nommy. Have you tried that flavour yet Beckie?

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 05:19 PM

I haven't tried them yet but I did get a box of them today!

Sketchy 16-05-2017 05:26 PM

Hi all.

Cacoethes 16-05-2017 05:37 PM

Hi Lorraine!
How are you?

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 05:39 PM

They literally taste like cherry bakewells just in alpen bar form, so don't have the same texture.

Hey Lorraine, how are you?

Sketchy 16-05-2017 05:39 PM

I'm ok. Sleepy today. And hungry. Looking forward to my pasta later.

How are you both?

Wonderland. 16-05-2017 05:43 PM

Pasta is good!

Glad you are okay!
